MEMRI reports reaction to Qaradawi’s non-existent fatwa

“At a convention on the subject of ‘Pluralism in Islam’ which took place in late August, 2004 at the Egyptian Journalists’ Union in Cairo, Sheikh Dr Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement and one of the most important religious authorities in Islamist circles, issued a religious legal opinion permitting the abduction and killing of American civilians in Iraq in order to pressure the American army to evacuate its forces.”
