Ex-Mufti Qabbani Urges 'Jihad' in Support of Palestinians

W300

A senior Sunni cleric in Lebanon has called on all Muslims to wage jihad, or holy war, in support of the Palestinians after the U.S. decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, the former top Sunni religious authority, or Grand Mufti, in Lebanon, also said it is not sanctioned religiously for the Palestinians or any Arab or Muslim country to "surrender, reconcile or make peace deals or give up any inch" of historic Palestine.

Qabbani, who still has clout in the community, also said it is not acceptable for them to "recognize so-called Israel."

Qabbani's comments appear to be a jab at U.S. plans for a peace deal. They are reportedly supported by Saudi Arabia, which has used its control of holy sites in Mecca and Medina to brand itself the protector of Islam around the world, and which has special clout among Sunnis.

If a Cardinal or Pope ordered a crusade , how would people react ? I for instance would look like an owl with huge round eyes and say this dude needs to be locked up in a psychiatric facility.

Well mr Qabbani, this applies to you. As Galaxy said, take Nusralot with you!

I was always impressed by how smart Mufti Ahmad Badr Eddin Hassoun is.
