Muslim Brotherhood Says Kill Kadhafi

Cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi spiritual leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said, "Whoever in the Libyan army is able to shoot a bullet at Mr. Kadhafi should do so."

Strange comment for the spiritual leader of the Brotherhood since US intelligence head James Clapper had this to say about the Muslim Brotherhood:

"The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam.”

Clapper also said. “They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera…..In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.”
