Murder advocate invited to England

Will double standards never cease?

Protests were growing in England Tuesday over the planned visit of a Muslim cleric who advocates suicide bombings against Jews and westerners.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi, 79, is scheduled to speak at the Muslim Unity Convention in Manchester Aug. 7.

[..] The Egyptian-born cleric who now lives in Qatar has said suicide bombings are justified and has said it is alright for women and children to die.

"It's not suicide, it is martyrdom," al-Qaradawi has said.
