Al Jazeeras preeminente teolog, den egyptisk-islamske teologen Yusuf al-Qaradawi, erklærer Fatwa som sier at muslimer skal drepe alle syriere som støtter regjeringen. Staten Egypt bør derfor på sin side gjøre det straffbart å krige på egenhånd mot andre stater.
He is best known for his programme, al-Sharīʿa wa al-Ḥayāh («Shariah and Life»), broadcast on Al Jazeera, which has an estimated audience of 60 million worldwide. He is also well known for IslamOnline, a popular website he helped found in 1997 and for which he now serves as chief religious scholar.
Al-Qaradawi has published more than 120 books, including The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam and Islam: The Future Civilization. He has also received eight international prizes for his contributions to Islamic scholarship, and is considered one of the most influential such scholars living today. Al-Qaradawi has long had a prominent role within the intellectual leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian political organization, but twice (in 1976 and 2004) turned down offers for the official role in the organization.
