Please read the [original] updated post, here. Updated February 19.
Please note: The following will seem like gibberish to you if you didn't read the original post:
This post has been deleted for the time-being, for the following reason: Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi lives in Qatar. He is banned from entering Egypt. Wael Ghonim, who is based in Qatar, traveled to Egypt, in late January, to join in the protests. However, it appears that Ghonim had aleady arrived in Egypt when he declared that he had "just met Sheikh Qaradawi in downtown in his car and saluted him". Hence, I'm inclined to believe that the Sheikh Qaradawi he had met was not the Sheikh Qaradawi of Qatar [who once lived in Egypt] but a different Sheikh. If anyone can shed some light on the matter, I'd greatly appreciate it. Until then, I will assume that I had erred.
Update: Qaradawi has a son currently living in Egypt. Perhaps it is Qaradawi's son whom Ghonim saluted.
