Dog returns to vomit

Harry’s Place resumes its attack on Yusuf al-Qaradawi as an anti-semite, with the use of material provided by … yes, I know, this does all have a wearying familiarity … the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Harry’s Place, 10 June 2005

Perhaps the author of that post would be advised to consult another piece from MEMRI which gives a fuller and relatively accurate of Qaradawi’s position on Judaism. (Quite why MEMRI published this latter excerpt is unclear – it was in the context of a widely publicised attack on their self-proclaimed objectivity, and was perhaps a defensive manoeuvre. Whatever the explanation, the change of line didn’t last long.)
