but qaradawi is not supporting two states for two people here. he said that israel has no right to exist and that JEWS HAVE NEVER BEEN IN PALESTINE. which is a lie totally according to history and the koran as well. how can you have two states for two people with this mentality?
34. Crazy Cleric : Israel has no right to exist
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (05.09.13)
Apparently Allah has different thoughts on the subject because it does exist, or is this just some kind of test for Muslims?
35. the funny people from lala-land
tiki ,   belgium   (05.09.13)
An Islamic cleric comes to South -''Palestine'' (or isn't Gaza supposed to be a part of Palestine) says aloud what ALL the Palestinian Brothers think & believe and than the Brothers in North "Palestine" start barking that he shouldn't say that, because it's political and he doesn't know what he's talking about. It's could be a scene right from 'South Park, but isn't that Jewish, which means that it's boycotted against by ALL Palestinians because Jew means Israel and ALL Palestinians collectively hate Jews, uh...Zionists. So, in principle the cleric didn't say anything wrong, but he didn't get that it's something 'political between the PA & Hamas, the two "Palestinian brothers" who hate each other more than they hate the Zionists.
36. Perfect time for a visit from an IDF drone
A ,   Belgium   (05.09.13)
loaded with explosives.
37. Israel Is Real!
DavidR ,   USA   (05.09.13)
What is this, another blind cleric? Let him step across the check point and he will soon discover that Israel's right to exist has teeth to prove it.
38. "this land has never once been a Jewish land."
shmulke ,   w coast USA   (05.09.13)
Is this clown a brazen liar, or just stupid?
39.  Moses has mentioned 136 times in Quran and Mohamed only 5
Asher ,   NY,USA   (05.09.13)
40. It seems that al-Qaradawi is an illiterate scholar!
Jouko ,   Finland   (05.09.13)
41. Cleric
Natan ,   USA   (05.09.13)
Someone once said that if you keep your big mouth shut, some may THINK that you are dumb. But when you open it, we KNOW that you are!!! Muslims should be proud of their "smart" clerics.
42. #21 Ahmad
Aaron ,   Toronto,Canada   (05.09.13)
Ahmad you have a chance to go to your local library and read any history book without anybody looking over your shoulder to make your own judgement.You will be pleasantly surprised by the lies you were taught all your life.
43. Relax, Israelis!
Larry ,   Northridge, usa   (05.09.13)
It's amazing to see how you let this fool push your buttons! As i write this, thirtyeight of you have commented with indignation. That what he wants. As he visits that impovrished hell hole called gaza, and looks toward Israel's shining cities, I'm sure Israels impermanence is the last thing he's thinking.
44. Canaan was never muslim
45. This Cleric has a problem....
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (05.09.13)
Apparently, this cleric is on the receiving end of too much anal sex....It is clearly effecting his ability to tell the truth. Israel is the land of the Jews...anyone one else is a guest...welcome or not....The land has and always will be the land of the Jews.
46. I'd love to see some comments ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.09.13)
.... from Christian Arabs.
47. Where is the moderate Islamist reply to this venom
b mezritch ,   philadelphia pa   (05.09.13)
48. Trying to get some credits back,
Mamud ,   South Lebanon   (05.09.13)
Why his boss visits Israel 3 times a year. Due to his last statements, many people look at his a cheap agent. Now he tries attack Israel just to get some credits back.
49. More brainwashing - they are so out of it.
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (05.09.13)
50. Isreal is here to stay.
mina ,   Cairo,Egypt   (05.09.13)
Israel, the oasis of light and freedom and technology . It was promised since biblical times and throughout almost 2000 years from Abraham till Malaki. This ignorant scholar will have more bonus and salary increase if he says these comments. \we love Jews and Egypt had a strong Jewish community before.
51. Qaradawi
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (05.09.13)
qaradawi is the spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood who is supported by obama as being democratic and moderate.
52. Two happy terrorists skipping down the street
Cynthia ,   USA   (05.09.13)
al-Qaradaw justifies suicide bombings and gives lectures on how men should beat their wives. A lovely role model and companion for Haniyeh who never does anything for the Palestinians.
53. To N 50, Mina. Excellent message.
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (05.10.13)
54. To 46, Sarah B.
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (05.10.13)
Mr's Sarah B. Here, in Brazil, many Christian Arab's descendents, like me, are friends of Israel and of Jewish people. We do repudiate fanaticism, injustice and intolerance. The words of the refered Muslim cleric in Gaza are shameful. I repeat that Palestinians will never have a State while they don't recognize and respect, verily, their neighbor. The Kuran, itself, says that Jews will recover their Land, and you did it. Peace depends on the both sides, and Israel, since her independence, has struggled a lot for it. Hence, She is admired and will prevail. Salutes.
55. Moving Israel
Larry ,   Northridge, usa   (05.11.13)
I have come to the conclusion that the term "islamic scholar" is an oxymoron. Let's hope he continues to make such outrageous statements. Then, even Obama will have to disavow him. By the way, that idea of another country buying Israel is a good one for many countries to consider. Imagine being able to acquire an educated technologically advanced super productive tech producing population. A great deal for a country with lots of land, where Israel could exist in an arranged symbiotic relationship. Argentina, with the pampas and patagonia comes to mind, as does Brazil, or even Australia.
