Algeria Gives Victory to the Arabic Language

Since the Minister of National Education in Algeria Nouria bin Gabrit made statements in the summer of 2015 about the need to integrate colloquial language in schools, Algeria has been bustling in reactions. The most apparent being the popular lists of petition signatories, whose signatories ask for the abolition of the French language in education. Moreover the public response was decisive and sweeping... This conflict has once again resurfaced at the beginning of this school year, when a video went viral of a teacher who was praising and beautifying the Arabic language to her students that made the ministers and secularists fly into a rage and make vows to take tough measures
Indeed, it is the whimsical Francophone lobby, the isolated, outcast, anomalous, whose decline, degradation and tension are proven everyday... It is the great Algeria which embraces the Ummah’s natural project; the Islamic doctrine and the System from which it emanates. The conviction of the people of Algeria are clearly visible that Islam is sufficient and adequate to establish a society of truth, justice and righteousness, and the only thing that Algeria and the Ummah need is the prestigious Islamic state... the Khilafah state (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood to finally resolve the cultural and civilizational battle…
We are truly proud of the sweeping reactions of our people in Algeria which have surprised France, as Algeria is always the land of goodness and surprises…
It is a shame on those countries based in the Muslim world not to teach the children of the Ummah the Arabic language, whereas other countries that are weak in almost deserted languages do so… The fact of the matter is that the Arabic language is the language of the Quran that is prosperous both written and spoken, and which its study is considered a form of worship… the many centuries are witness to its ability in absorbing all that is new…

Parliamentary Committee Radicalisation Report has Omissions and Contradictions

 We have read the report from the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee on ‘radicalisation’ with interest. We note the main media focus is on whether or not Internet companies are doing enough to tackle the spread of terrorism.
 Yet this is not the main flaw in the report – which purports to look at things including the causes of ‘radicalisation’ and the Prevent policy.
 Regarding the report, Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut Tahrir in Britain said, “The primary problems are its omissions, inconsistencies and contradictions.”
 “a) On radicalisation, the report says: there is no evidence that shows a single path or one single event which draws a young person to the scourge of extremism: every case is different. Yet they did not go on to expose the fallacies in this most basic premise (alongside the absence of definitions of ‘radicalisation’ and ‘extremism’) have underpinned all counter-extremism policy in the UK and Europe. To have realised this and yet not made it clear – and then not denounced all policy that is built upon it is a basic flaw in the report.”
 “There is a lie at the heart of the radicalisation narrative that has been repeated so often that people believe it. It is that ‘the more Islamic you are, the more of a potential threat you are.’ This has become the reason why ‘deradicalisation’ policies have been aimed at making Muslims ‘less Islamic’, and more compliant with liberal norms and government policies.”
 “If ‘radicalisation’ means people becoming agitated and committing acts of violence, it isn’t because of Islam. Anger is an understandable emotional response to sensing the injustice of western government foreign, and (more recently), domestic policies - even though acts of violence against innocent people are an unacceptable response to such emotions. Sadly, these unacceptable ‘acts of terror’ show no signs of decreasing whilst there is no admission that these are blow back from policies generated in London, Washington and Paris.”
 “b) On Prevent, the report calls for a review and rebranding of this ‘toxic’ brand.
Rebranding or reforming the pernicious Prevent policy is like putting lipstick on a pig. Prevent needs to be scrapped.”
 “Whilst some of the witnesses labelled the policy discriminatory, and accused the media of fueling Islamophobia, they failed to point out that political leaders who have driven this policy are the same ones who initiated and have licensed Islamophobia.”
 “They have failed to point out that the UK’s counter-extremism policy in general has nothing to do with counter-terrorism, but that terrorism has become an excuse to implement a securitised policy for forced assimilation. It is more about reforming Islam so Muslims change their views and values, and silencing political views.”
 “This is implicitly recognised in the report which quotes senior police officers who now recognise they are acting as a ‘thought police’ – a role now passed on to schools, universities and health services.”
 “c) The stifling of debate and speech was raised by witnesses from the education sector. However, the effect of this policy has been to silence Muslims from discussing vital issues that others are free to discuss. The result is a dangerous vacuum in the Muslim community that is all too easily filled by internet search engines, who are singled out for criticism. As increasing numbers of prominent Muslims are either too fearful to address these matters, or argue that they aren’t relevant, we see others actively changing their views and adopting a liberal standpoint. They call this a ‘reformation’ whereas it is nothing more than a deformation of Islam.”
 “d) Western policy makers are in a dilemma. Either they accept that many people haven’t been convinced to adopt secular liberal values, and haven’t been duped about their policies towards the Muslim world – or they criminalise thoughts and views. Until now, Prevent and counter-extremism policies have been the latter. They are Britain’s blasphemy laws for those who are ‘apostates’ from the prevailing political norms, where ‘extremist’ has become a secular word for ‘heretic’.”
 “e) Muslims need to realise that, far from being bullied into suppressing their Islam, the solution is more Islam, not less. We are ready for a robust debate about relative beliefs and values. We are ready for open discussion, though some may feel unable in the atmosphere of a witch-hunt.”
 “However, we need fear none but Allah, trusting in Him alone – carrying the message of Islam to those with open hearts and exposing the lies of those who are hostile to Islam and Muslims, and being proud of our global Islamic identity.”
﴿وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
“And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims."” [Surah Fussilat 41:33]

The Treasonous Agreement with the Jewish Entity Has Passed in the Parliament!

A bill that would give permission to the agreement between Turkey and the Jewish entity which kind of accepts the massacre of Mavi Marmara has passed last night in the TBMM (Grand National Assembly of Turkey). According to the bill presented to the parliament signed by the AKP (Justice and Development Party) government, the Jewish entity will pay 20 million dollars in reparation to the families of the Muslims murdered six years ago by the Jewish entity in the ship of Mavi Marmara. And the Mavi Marmara cases opened against the Jewish entity will stop. So that the terrorist Jewish entity's soldiers will not be held responsible. After the agreement, the diplomatic relations will be elevated again to the ambassador level.
The AKP governments, like all the past governments of the republic, are following their predecessors in keeping good relations with the murderous Jewish entity. For the Turkish Republic has been the first country, which its people is Muslim, that recognised the Jewish entity as a state in 1949. This demeanour of Turkey has encouraged the maddened Jewish entity and they have increased their attacks on the Palestinian people more with each passing day. Notably only two days after the agreement between Turkey and the Jewish entity, the murderer Jewish entity has bombed Gaza. Statements like "We need Israel" from the leaders of Turkey with the leaders of other Islamic lands has encouraged the usurper Jewish entity even more and has caused it to attack even bolder. For the only reason why these coward Jews have grown this bold is because there are no courageous leaders who are only fearful of Allah.
We remind the architects of this treasonous agreement between Turkey and the Jewish entity, the government and to those politicians who accepted this agreement:
1- This agreement is treason to Islam, the Muslims and to our murdered brothers in the ship of Mavi Marmara. The families, of our murdered brothers in the ship of Mavi Marmara, do not accept this bribe money and this treasonous agreement. So, who exactly are you trying to appeal to by accepting this agreement? Who exactly are you trying to please?
2- With this treasonous agreement your fake "one minute" play has been levelled. Muslims will no more believe that you are opposed against the murderer Jewish entity! Because you have made befriending murderers of Muslims a habit and great honour.
3- A state never forgives those who murder its citizens unjustly. So how is it that you accept to end juristic process against the murderer Jewish entity's soldiers? Why do you decide to give up bringing to account what has been done to the martyrs of Mavi Marmara, which in fact you have been exploiting for years?
4- How can you treat with the most untrustworthy entity on the planet? That does not mean, making agreements with the enemies of Islam and the Muslims, leaving the people of Palestine and Masjid al-Aqsa to the (mercy of the Jews)?
O Leaders! Do not think that the treasons of those who recognised the usurper Jewish entity, collaborated and contented themselves with watching the massacres of the Jews, will be forgotten. Even if the Muslims forget, our Lord will never forget! To the usurper Jews, do not think that your vile actions will be forgotten or that the collaborating regimes will always protect you. The Muslims have carved these tyrannies into their hearts and minds. With Allah's permission when the Khilafah Rashidah according to the method of the Prophethood is established, the Khalif of the Muslims will yank the Jewish entity like a carrot with its root and all, only then will the world be rid of their evil.
