Gulf media is reporting that Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi will lead a delegation to the eight annual Jerusalem Foundation (aka Al-Quds Foundation) conference to be held in Khartoum on March 5. According to a Gulf Times report:
Dr Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, will lead a delegation to the eighth annual conference of the International Jerusalem Foundation to be held in Khartoum on March 5, according to reports published in the local Arabic press. The two-day event will include a ceremony to mark the establishment of a mini-industrial estate on 5,000sq metres of land donated by the Sudan government as an endowment to the Jerusalem foundation, said the chairman of the board of trustees, Dr Qutbi al-Mahdi, in a statement. The foundation was established in January 2000 on the basis of a resolution adopted at the third Pan-Islamic conference held in Beirut. With headquarters in Beirut, the foundation holds its annual conference in any Islamic capital that offers to host the event.
Islam Online, formerly closely associated with Qaradawi, described the Al Quds International Institution (AQI) as a non-profit organization established in Lebanon in 2001 with a permanent headquarters in Jerusalem and says that the board of trustees features a “cohort of Arab and Muslim figures, who seek to keep Al-Quds cause alive and pass it on from one generation to another.” It should also be noted that the Secretary-General of AQI s is Akram Adeloni (aka Muhammad Akram Adlouni) who was the likely author of a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood document calling for the destruction of the Western civilization at the hands of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.
