Crotch Bomber's Houston Imam: The Truth Will Out (Video) (Updated)

One of the teachers of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the infamous crotchbomer, is Yasir Qadhi, a homegrown "moderate" Islamic Scholar, who was born in Houston of Pakistani parents. From Fox News:

Here's a sample of what Qadhi has to say when he's not appearing on US television or sitting on panels at U.S. universities:
No Supreme Court, no system of government, no democracy where they vote! Can you believe it, a group of people coming together and voting? And the majority vote will then be the law of the land? What gives you the right to prohibit something or allow something? Who gave you this right? Are you Creators? Are you all-knowledgeable?
Sounds like Qadhi thinks only imams should have a say in how societies operate.

In addition to his numerous TV appearances, Qadhi has access to some of the most respected podiums in the Western world, including the U.S. National Terrorism Center, Harvard Law School, and University of Edinburgh. He is on record as describing the Holocaust as "false propaganda."

Qadhi has complained that Muslims suffer from a "presumption of guilt."

Would it be too much to presume that many Muslims do not approve of democracy?

UPDATE (8:00 p.m. Eastern):

It gets worse.  One of Qadhi's favorite people is Ali Al-Timimi,
who was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of soliciting others to wage war against the United States. Even after Timimi's conviction, to Qadhi, he is someone "who I can say (with pride) that fifteen years ago, back in the early 90s, he played an instrumental role in shaping and directing me to take the path that has led me to where I am today."
