December 31, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Hindu [see, http://www.thehindu.com/news/article2755817.ece] online website is reporting that Team Obama's criminally incompetent foreign policy team has unbelievably, asked Yusuf al-Qaradawi to help mediate its on-again-off-again "negotiations" with Afghanistan's key jihadists, the Taliban.
Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a Doha-based Islamist scholar who once called on his followers to back jihadist groups in Jammu and Kashmir, has emerged as a key mediator in secret talks between the U.S. and the Taliban, government sources have told The Hindu."
Al-Qaradawi is the tip of the spear of Sunni Islamist revolutionary theology and the unchallenged intellectual leader of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. He is also a virulent anti-Semite and a supporter of Hamas.
To say that Qaradawi is a jihadist, doesn't do him justice - he is the face of the global Islamic jihad.
If there is any upper limit as to how much this administration is willing to give the Taliban in order for Obama to be able to wave around an Afghani "peace treaty," as he campaigns for a second term, it's certainly not apparent given that this foolish bunch of amateurs has apparently already offered to transfer some of GITMO's most hardened Taliban terrorists to Afghanistan, whereupon they will of course be free and clear to resume their jihad against the West.
Knowing that they have the upper hand in any negotiations with a president desperate to cut and run from Afghanistan, the Taliban are obviously driving a hard deal indeed.
As the always clear-headed, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy noted today in NRO [see, http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/286854/obama-recruits-qaradawi-andrew-c-mccarthy] piece, "The surrender is complete now...[marking] one of the most shameful chapters in American history."
We thoroughly concur, the real question is whether this nation can withstand another year of governance by these bozos.
