‘Day of Rage’ set in solidarity with FSA

A Muslim union headed by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi yesterday called for a “Day of Rage and Support” for the Free Syrian Army (FSA) battling Syrian regime troops backed by a Shiite axis.
The Association of Muslim Scholars urged its millions of supporters to demonstrate, stage peaceful sit-ins, make speeches and pray for the Syrian fighters on Friday, June 14.
The Qatar-based group strongly condemned “the horrific crimes... committed by the Syrian regime, with support from Iran and its tails in Lebanon, in Qusayr.”
Meanwhile, Minster of Islamic Affairs, Endowment, Call and Guidance Saleh Al-Asheikh has thanked Qaradawi for his denunciation of Hezbollah.
Al-Asheikh hailed Qaradawi for acknowledging the correctness of the Saudi scholars’ stance against Hezbollah, a statement quoted by the SPA said yesterday.
Qaradawi’s statement reflected the unity of the Sunni scholars in the Kingdom and other parts of the world against threats not only against their faith but against their security and existence in their own countries as well, he added.
Also, Minister of Justice Muhammad Al-Isa sent a message of thanks to Qaradawi for expressing his appreciation of the role of the Saudi scholars in opposing Hezbollah.
“I am happy to read your statement on the atrocities against the Syrian people and your agreement with the Saudi scholars on the denunciation of the extermination of Syrian people by a group (Hezbollah) that is bent on shedding people’s blood and violating their honor driven by sectarian sentiments,” the minister said in his letter.
