Dueling Wall Fatwas

Last week, noted pro-terror sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi issued a fatwa saying that Egyptians are forbidding from building an iron wall to stop smuggling between Gaza and Egypt. Yemeni sheikh Abdul Majid agreed.

The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood is planning legal action to stop the construction of the wall as well.

But Al Azhar University held a sharia council to discuss the matter, and announced that Egypt is perfectly within its rights to build the wall, and even said that those opposing the wall are going against Islamic law.
