Qaradawi blasts Pope Benedict XVI
Pope Benedict XVI was on the receiving end of a blast from Islamic spiritual leader Sheikh Yousuf al-Qaradawi (who heads up the European Council for Fatwa and Research, among other things). What bothered Qaradawi? The Pope's very public baptism of former Muslim and outspoken anti-Islamist Majdi Allam. See this report on Jihad Watch for details. It's getting harder and harder to classify Qaradawi as 'moderate.'
