If officials in America or Israel were paying attention to this, which is certainly nothing that Qaradawi himself originated, they would realize the futility of concessions and land-for-peace initiatives. From Gulf Times, with thanks to Nicolei:
HAMAS would be toppled quickly if it gave concessions to Israel “because nobody has the right to give up even a grain of sand that belongs to Palestine,” prominent Islamic scholar Dr Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi said in his sermon yesterday. However, he added that the Arabs and Muslims could have a truce with Israel.
Speaking on the fatwas (edicts) drawn up by the two-day Muslim Scholars Gathering for the Support of Palestine held at the Ritz Doha, Qaradawi called upon Muslims around the world to give Zakat and alms to the besieged Palestinians.
“The Palestinian teachers who have not been paid for months deserve to receive Zakat,” Qaradawi said, adding that Muslims should also donate amounts accruing from bank interest to the Palestinians.
He called upon the Arab and Muslim peoples to put pressure on their governments to refuse the orders of the US. “We are not slaves to the Americans, we would like our rulers to say no to America,” he said.
The scholar also stressed that Palestine is a “property of Islam” and not owned by a specific person. “If the present generation retreated, the coming generations will still have the right to liberate Palestine,” he said while stressing that if it were not for the political borders, millions of young people would flood into Palestine for jihad.
