Sheikh Qaradhawi: American Culture And Judaism Spread Violence In The World

In his weekly religious ruling show on the Qatari Al-Jazeera TV, Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi blamed American culture and Judaism for spreading violence in the world. Following are excerpts from his comments:

Dr. Al-Qaradhawi: Violence exists everywhere and terrorism exists everywhere, even within America, and America may be one of the reasons for the spreading of the violent ideology around the world because of the culture it spreads, violent films, the violent TV series, westerns… This is America and even the children… We have seen children shooting their classmates.

Judaism is the No. 1 propagator of violence. As I said in the last program, the Torah itself states that when you enter a certain country, you must offer peace, and if they agree, all their residents are your slaves. In other countries, you should not offer peace or conversion. You must destroy them all, do not leave a living soul. In the first country you must slay all males and leave only the women, but in the second country, you must not leave… you must uproot them. This is in Judaism, in the Torah.
