London Mayor's Friend Sheikh al-Qaradhawi
Says Jews Set Traps

Leading Islamist Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, a man London Mayor Ken Livingstone has praised repeatedly, blames Jews and "satans" for the problems of his fellow Islamic Jihadis:

"We are now under a siege that resembles the Siege of the Trench, the Siege of Akhzab.
"But we will be victorious, Allah willing - despite the traps set by Judaism and the Crusaders, and despite the deeds of those who set traps and who deceive.

"He decided that the only treatment they merited was to have their fighters killed, their women taken captive, and their property seized as booty.

"Some Orientalists claim that Muhammad was cruel to the Jews, but this is how determination should be.

"I pray for Allah to open our brothers' eyes, to make the present in Iraq better than the past, and the future better than the present. I pray for Allah to protect Iraq from overt and covert civil strife, to protect it from the evils of divisiveness and racism, and to protect it from the whispers of all satans, the human satans, the satans among the djinn, the American satans, and other satans."

Mayor Ken Livingstone has great friends, doesn't he?

Anyway, I'm not a Jew, but I've got to get back to setting those traps. There's an awful lot of them, you know.
