This is, yes, the same Qaradawi who praised suicide bombers in London recently, earning a return invitation. He’s also the one John Esposito praises as a moderate reformer. From AFP, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
During a sermon Friday, Qaradawi accused international aid agencies operating in Darfur of using relief distribution to convert the region’s Muslim population to Christianity.
He charged that the West was conspiring against Muslims the world over, including in Darfur.
“We are in a big battle with our foes,” said Qaradawi, adding that it was a military, political as well as religious battle. “They are conspiring against us religiously.”
Qaradawi said there was a host of non-governmental organizations operating in Darfur under cover of “charity” but which were actively seeking to convert the local population to Christianity.
