Critic of Pope supports suicide bombers

One of the first Muslim leaders to denounce Pope Benedict's September 12 speech is a cleric who openly supports terrorist suicide bombers.

Qatar-based Yusuf al Qaradawi, a native of Egypt who is considered the spiritual chief of the Muslim Brotherhood, went on Al Jazeera, ripping into Pope Benedict's comments and demanding an apology to "the Muslim nation."

Previously, al Qaradawi lauded Islamist suicide bombers and exhorted Muslims to kill American troops in Iraq.
