Qatar strips Qaradawi of citizenship, orders Khaled Meshaal out of country

Qatar has stripped prominent Muslim Brotherhood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi of his Qatari citizenship, has ordered Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal (who took refuge in Qatar after it was no longer palatable to be sheltered by Bashar al-Assad) out of the country, and has withdrawn support from the Muslim Brotherhood as a result of Wednesday's events in Egypt (link in Arabic).

Let's go to the videotape.



UPDATE 10:22 AM

Here's a Google translation of the article:
Student Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa second, the Emir of Qatar, on Tuesday evening, from Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi to leave the country, and ordered the withdrawal of Qatari nationality of it, and the closure of all offices of the Muslim Brotherhood in order to state policy in order not to chosing a faction or political trend given. Confirmed Prince Tamim , in an interview, we are all Muslims, but not the Muslim Brotherhood, and dealing with a diameter of State and Government and not with the political faction., Al-Nahar reported that Prince Tamim gave Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, 48 hours to leave the country.
So Qaradawi was also expelled. I'm sure the Egyptian army would be thrilled to have him back under lock and key.

Maybe Hamas will take him in Gaza. Three words on that: target rich environment. Heh.
