A prominent Qatari cleric and Muslim theologian who holds radical anti-Semitic views said Israel has turned a neglected desert land into an “oasis.”

Yusuf al-Qaradawi is one of the better-known modern-day authorities on Islam. He has voiced support for the extremist Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and has been barred from entering several European states.

In this video, al-Qaradawi laments the lack of work ethic in Arab society and at the very end praises Israel for turning arid desert into a flowering state.

This is definitely worth the watch – you need to see this to believe it!
