During the current Libyan peoples struggle for freedom the 'respected' Scholar - Yusuf al-Qaradawi - has issued a fatwa or legal edict sanctioning the assassination of Colonel Muammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi.
This plays straight into the hands of the neo-cons who contend that the Muslim World is not fit or ready for democracy. Qaradawi should be calling for his arrest, public trial, and imprisonment along with his sons who should spend the remainder of their lives rotting in jail especially Saif al-Islam who can meditate on his doctorate earned from the London School of Economics discussing democracy.
Will the head of Gaddafi help to quench the anguish of those countless mothers whose sons and daughters were murdered in Libya?
When will this bloody cycle of violence end in the Muslim World?
When will Muslims realize that their birth right is not heaven but individual responsibility?
