In November 2004, jihadwatch carried a 'Khaleed Times' report on Hamza Yousef's pronouncements at a conference in Dubai.
'Hamza Yousef: Jihad is actually considered a Rahma (mercy) in Islam.
The article opened as follows:
"Dubai - The Muslim society has lost the ability of strategic thinking, which Prophet Muhammad exemplified by compromising on several points with the enemy when he signed the Treaty of Hudaibia, said leading American Muslim, Shaikh Hamza Yousef, at a lecture on Monday.
"Elaborating his pint, Shaikh Hamza Yousuf said, "There are times when you have to live like a sheep in order to live in the future like a lion"...
And that, coming straight after the reference to the Treaty of Hudaybiyya, which Mohammed feigningly made and then - the moment he felt he and his Muslims were strong enough - treacherously broke, tells us all we need to know about the 'moderation' of Sheikh Hamza Yousef, and his smiles and wiles and 'interfaith' activities.
