French getting smarter? Qaradawi and other imams banned from France

Maybe the French have learned a few lessons from last week's events. Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, leads a list of imams who have been barred from entering France.
The President said he would block the entry of some imams invited to an Islamic conference next month, organised by the Union of French Islamic Organisations (UOIF).

The UOIF, one of three Muslim federations in France, is regarded as close to Egypt's Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.

'I have clearly indicated that there certain people who have been invited to this congress who are not welcome on French soil,' Mr Sarkozy told France Info radio.


One imam banned by the President is Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian cleric based in Qatar who is one of the most prominent Sunni Muslim clerics in the Arab world and a household name in the Middle East due to regular appearances on the Al Jazeera news channel.

A former member of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Qaradawi is independent of the group but remains close to it. Mr Sarkozy said the situation was complicated because the imam holds a diplomatic passport and does not require a visa to enter France.

'I indicated to the Emir of Qatar himself that this person was not welcome on the territory of the French republic,' Mr Sarkozy said. 'He will not come.'

Qaradawi was denied a visa to visit Britain in 2008 on grounds of seeking to 'justify acts of terrorist violence or disburse views that could foster inter-community violence', a Home Office spokeswoman said at the time.
Of course, they can always go to nearby England, where the government is falling all over itself to give away expensive homes to Islamic radicals.

Some of these 'Islamic radicals' are actually M15 and M16 agents. They play a role in cathching those who are distorting the faith.

Europe is better at combatting extremism than the USA is. Americans rely on the wrong people, that is why it's now bankrupt, and still without achieving it's aims. America is no longer safe, and unlike before 9/11, it's bankrupt.

Divine justice is a bitch :)
