Kayani, do you think that seizing Saad Jagranvi will slow the march to Khilafah and your walk to the gallows?

Kayani, do you think that seizing Saad Jagranvi will slow the march to Khilafah and your walk to the gallows?

On 26 November 2012, Kayani's thugs seized Saad Jagranvi, member of Hizb ut-Tahrir and head of the Central Contact Committee, shortly before maghrib. A father of six children, Saad called his widowed elderly mother to confirm that he had been taken by agency thugs. Saad Jagranvi is a prominent influential within Lahore from a highly renowned and respected family, the Jagranvis.

Hizb ut-Tahrir wishes to remind Kayani and his masters, the Americans who cower in their frail outpost, their embassy, as they hear news of the continuing march of the Hizb.

1. Your campaign of threats, harrassment, abduction and torture, upto and including martyrdom, has not slowed the Hizb's work, let alone stopped it, in any country and never will inshaaAllah. Seeking to extinguish the light and guidance of Allah SWT Deen is a failed pursuit that your predecessors throughout history, from Firawn to Abu Lahab, learned to regret in this world, before they were seized by the Lord of the World in the next.

يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللَّهُ إِلاَّ أَنْ يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ
"They desire to extinguish the Light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah refuses but to perfect His Light, even though the disbelievers abhor it." [Surah at-Tawba 9: 32]

2. Your use of force has only confirmed that you are devoid of any word of truth against the call of the Hizb, which has exposed the mayhem and destruction caused by the American presence and demands its complete eradication from all Muslim land through the establishment of the Ummah's state, the Khilafah. The entire Muslim Ummah, including its armed forces, wants Islam and sees only loss in your corrupted ideology and so-called civilization.

وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلاَمِ دِينًا فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنْ الْخَاسِرِينَ
“And whosoever seeks a deen other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.” [Surah Al-Imran 3:85]

3. It has been noted by the aware that your oppression has intensified of late as you see the failure of your project abundantly clear in the form of uprisings for Islam, within whom the call for Khilafah is distinctive and strong. This intensification confirms to the aware that your time, the time of kufr colonialism, its laws, its system and rulers, is at an end and you are merely dancing the dance of the dead. Allah SWT's promise will be fulfilled when He wishes and then it will be clear to the entire world that you were not facing the Hizb or the Ummah but Allah SWT and His Decision, which when it came ripped all of your plans and projects asunder.

وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ
"And soon will the oppressors know what change in circumstance their affairs will take" [Surah Al-Sha’raa 26:227]

Myanmar: Cycle of Catastrophe

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Cycle of Catastrophe

How did we forget? How did we become distant and disconnected? We focus on Palestinians, Libyans and mostly Syrians. Yet we remain aloof about our brothers and sisters in Myanmar. We rush to gather funds and blankets for Syrian refugees yet no word about them. Them: the distant dark-skinned people of the Far East.

The situation can almost be comparable if not worse to the time when Rasool Allah (saw) first started his Dawah. Buddhists are threatened by Myanmar Muslims simply because of their belief in Allah and His Messenger. They are set to fire, thrown into the sea or forced to suffer at the hands of enraged Buddhists. Where is the peace so-called Buddhists follow?

((يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا بِطَانَةً مِّن دُونِكُمْ لَا يَأْلُونَكُمْ خَبَالًا وَدُّوا مَا عَنِتُّمْ قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ ۚ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ))
"O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the Scriptures [i.e. you believe in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), while they disbelieve in your Book, the Qur'an]. And when they meet you, they say, "We believe". But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say: "Perish in your rage. Certainly, Allah knows what is in the breasts (all the secrets)." [TMQ Ali-Imran: 118]

The scenes appear to be part of a grotesque Hollywood-style horror movie. Yet this situation has no near end in sight. We are to be one Ummah, to be one body. Yet we are severed so ruthlessly, we no longer recognize our body parts. However Muslims can recite the Hadeeths and Ayat of this without effect on them. We are one Ummah from the North to the South to the West to the East. To keep reiterating this slogan will have no impact on the plight of Myanmar Muslims from the Far Eastern corner of the globe.

Even more importantly, where is the Muslim Army rescue? During the Mecca stage, a group of Muslims fled to the Habasha (Ethiopia) to escape persecution from the tribes of Quraish. They were accepted into Ethiopia by the Christian king. Yet it is disgraceful that Myanmar Muslims are rejected by their Muslim Bangladesh brothers who are then vulnerable to slaughter and rape by the Buddhists. Where is the action of the Muslim Bangladesh Generals and soldiers who possess the might and knowledge of warfare? You must race to their rescue instead of barring them at the Western imposed borders. Would we remain numb if our blood brother ached in pain and turmoil? Or would we rush to the immediate rescue to alleviate his pain and distress? Brotherhood is not by blood alone; it is the bond of our Aqeedah that truly connects us to the entire Ummah like our blood brother.

Mashallah our dear brothers and sisters in Myanmar. You are the core of this hadeeth, "The one who holds to his deen during that period will be like the one who holds his hand on a live coal, and the one who holds to his deen will have the reward of fifty men who act as he does. They asked: will they be like fifty of them or us? He said: They are rather fifty of you," said the Prophet (saw). You are attacked because of your firm belief in this Aqeedah and Allah swt has promised you His Heavens.

أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِن قَبْلِكُم ۖ مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاءُ وَالضَّرَّاءُ وَزُلْزِلُوا حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ مَتَىٰ نَصْرُاللَّـهِ ۗ أَلَا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللَّـهِ قَرِيبٌ
"Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, "When (will come) the Help of Allah?" Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near!" [TMQ Al-Baqarah: 214]

How do you sleep in your warm beds while your Myanmar brothers and sisters bloated floating bodies are left to decay in the sea? How can you look at yourselves in the mirror, while in Myanmar Muslims look decrepit and battered? They are left with malaria-infested water and rotting food to fill their stomachs. While you on the contrary swallow fancy foods compliments of the depraved Hasina regime.
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Where is your sense of humanity! What good will your shiny medals proudly displayed across your chests bring?

Rather these same medals will sear deep into your chest on the Day of Judgment for not answering the Muslim cries.

We need to clearly take into consideration the role we are to assume. More specifically those in position to make a difference in the lives of the Myanmar Muslims who have faced a lifetime of rejection and disappointment in our Muslim Armies. It is time to implement the concept of one Ummah. These are clear reminders of your responsibility to them transforming their bleak present into a secure tranquil future.
"A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor deserts him. Whoever helps to remove the hardship of his brother, will have his difficulties removed by Allah in this world and in the Hereafter." 

(( وَإِنِ اسْتَنصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ قَوْمٍ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَهُم مِّيثَاقٌ))
"And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help." [TMQ 8:72]

To conclude this reminder of the ongoing plight of the Forgotten People of Myanmar, we end with the Prophet's (saw) famous duaa, "Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from worry and grief, from helplessness and laziness, from cowardice and stinginess, and from overpowering of debt and from oppression of men."

Q&A: Military intervention in Mali

In recent days, many spoke of military intervention in Northern Mali, and yesterday Sunday 11th November 2012, leaders of the Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) met to discuss the restoration of Northern Mali within the State of Mali. Their decision was vague and indecisive. They decided to send 3,300 troops to Mali, but at the same time they declared not to close the door to a political settlement, leaving the door open for dialogue. This was after UN Security Council Resolution 2071 on 10/15/2012, which gave a 45-day deadline to this group. And over this and that, the stances of the major colonialist influences in Africa were different. The most urgent stance for military intervention is taken by France, and to a lesser degree America, whilst Britain displayed a lack of interest. But, what is striking is that Algeria is the hub in this matter, the officials' visits of these countries were frequent to Algeria, and a delegation came just as another left, though Algeria still opposed the military intervention.
The question is why did Algeria become the station of competition between these countries in terms of communication with it, particularly from the United States and France? Why did the voice of Britain seem dim? What are the stances of these countries and their purpose from contact with Algeria?
In order, to clarify the answer we must first review two important issues:
First: The Political Reality of Algeria
Second: Mali Coup
1. The Political Reality of Algeria
It is well known that President Bouteflika, who was the Foreign Minister at the time of Houari Boumedienne followed the approach of Boumediene, whom had links with the British, and then he came to power through a military coup. He led it in 1965 against Ahmed Ben Bella, who was loyal to America, the rule continued in the hands of Englishmen agents until France's agents undertook a military coup in 1992, so as to prevent the arrival of the Islamic Salvation Front to power, after it had succeeded in the elections. Then they forced Chadli Ben Jedid to resign. The army then became in control of the country, but it failed in establishing the order and the rule was weak, after they forced Chadli to resign in 1992. They brought Muhammad Boudiaf then he was killed. Afterwards, they brought Ali Kafi, whom they sidelined, handing over the power to the Defense Minister General Zeroual Amen. But they could not deal with the consequences of their coup and calm the situation in the country, after committing terrible massacres against the Muslim people of Algeria.
In 1999, they agreed for Abdelaziz Bouteflika to be president with a condition that he does not hold them accountable for their crimes, in destroying the country, and to work towards calmness by calling for harmony, peace, and reconciliation. Thus, he became president from 1999 until today, after the announcement of his victory in the 2004 election and then in the 2009 elections. Bouteflika still maintains a close relationship with Britain. He emphasized his loyalty by visiting Britain in 2006, the first visit from an Algerian president to Britain. Although, the French faction in the Algerian army, who are influential to some extent, realize the relationship of Bouteflika with Britain and realize that Bouteflika was not at peace with French politics and that he rejected the Mediterranean Union Project, which was a French initiative at the time of Sarkozy, and that the draft agreements discussed in 2008 during Sarkozy's visit to Algeria, where he met Bouteflika, have not been implemented. Despite all of these realizations they are silent, because the leaders' crime files of this faction who transgressed against the Muslim people of Algeria have not been closed. Bouteflika can explode this affair in their faces if they think about staging a coup against him. So they did not oppose his policy and in particular, as long he agrees with them with the protection of secularism and the republic which they sanctified.
Thus, the general political line of the Algerian president is with the British policy on the subject of Mali.
2. The Coup in Mali
The Coup in Mali occurred on 03/22/2012, and it was clear that America was behind it. America was working to find an influence in Mali. It started by contracting agreements with Mali to train Malian troops to combat terrorism and practice tactics for fighting rebel groups. It used to choose officers transporting them to America for training. Al-Aser website in 24/03/2012 narrated from U.S. sources that a U.S. diplomat who requested anonymity to the press said, "The coup leader Captain Omedua Ahmedou Haia Sanogo had been chosen from among the elite officers by the U.S. Embassy to receive military training to combat terrorism in the United States." He added that"Sanjogo traveled several times to America on special missions ..."
The purpose of the coup is to remove the influence of the French from Mali which was the main base of France replacing it with US influence.
We have already made this matter clear in detail in the answer to a question of 24/03/2012.
Now, after reviewing the two former matters we can answer the question as follows:
1. Britain's low voice in the matter of military intervention was because the problem is primarily between the United States and France. America was behind the coup to rip France's influence from the region ... Therefore, Britain "as usual" wants the two sides to be busy with each other to weaken them and be the winner or at least not a loser!
With regard to its stand during the visit of its officials to Algeria about Mali: it was an evasive stand towards military intervention, but at the same time supporting of Algeria in non-military intervention! The British Ambassador in Algeria, Martin Roper, stated, "The UK stands by Algeria at this very critical stage" and "that Britain favors a peaceful solution if possible" (Khabar Newspaper 22/6/012). Alistair Burt, the British Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, visited Algeria on 23/6/012 and has studied the situation in Northern Mali and strengthened the relations with Algerian officials for three days. "He highly regards the Algerian stand by refusing the military intervention to end the insurgency problem in Northern Mali and he said that Britain supports resolving the conflict in the shore region through negotiations." (The Algerian Peace of Today 24/6/012). Britain does not want Algeria's Bouteflika involved in a military intervention in Northern Mali because it gives opportunities to America to influence Algeria as a prelude to extend its influence in this country, so that it will be at the expense of British influence in Algeria and North Africa.
The evasiveness in the British attitude was reflected by Algeria's Bouteflika, this way Algeria's remarks indicates that they do not want interference from any side. It wants a political solution on the other hand; but also says that it is against terrorism in Northern Mali! This means that Britain's stand is vague. It also says that the intervention has adverse effects, especially on Mali Tuareg and it must be a political solution; but at the same time it says that a military solution is necessary against terrorism! As stated by the spokesman for the Algerian Foreign Ministry, Ammar Blaney, where he said, "We believe that the use of force must be for insight in order to avoid any confusion or ambiguity between the residents of Mali Tuareg who have legitimate demands and the terrorist groups and drug traffickers, which should be the first goal, because they are the source of danger that threatens the region." (F.P. 30/10/012). They held the stick from the middle, in keeping with the British style; to keep the conflict between America and France, whilst at the same time staying away from the conflict. This is because Britain in its current track doesn't clash openly with America, but rather starts to obstruct by other means, as is the case with Algeria. Although, Algeria stands firmly against the French in their discussions for Northern Mali, to the extent that it postponed the French president's visit, but it showed inclination and response to the US pressure over her, so it could not postpone the visit of a US official, though it postponed the visit of the President of France! It seems that the Algerians postponed the visit of the President of France, Francois Hollande to satisfy America. It is taking a serious stand towards France, but it shows softness in her remarks towards America as evidence by the cordial actions.
2. As for France, it suffered severely from the impact of the coup in Mali, and the matter became decisive for it. Therefore, if it cannot take her influence back in Mali, then its influence in Africa will end gradually, so the French work hard for international military intervention to re-take Mali into her camp. It doesn't want to keep America's henchmen in power in the South of Mali, and the quasi-state in Northern Mali, which then will be difficult to extend her influence as before in the State of Mali.
This is why France is scrambling for military intervention in Northern Mali, because its influence in Mali has taken a big hit after the military coup there; which was done by junior officers loyal to America on 22/03/2012. This influence is to ramshackle the entire region, if France cannot solve the issue of Mali and Northern Mali. Therefore, we see her working in the Security Council, struggling to issue decisions on using military intervention and France is contacting the related countries in the region, particularly Algeria.
French stand through its contacts with Algeria is strongly urging military intervention. However, Algeria did not respond to it. It was quoted by the newspaper of El Khabar, from the French newspaper, Le Canar Oonche on 10/31/2012 that the "delay of the visit of the French President Hollande to Algeria, which was scheduled in the month of November to December was at the request of the Algerian President Bouteflika" and stated that France is sending signals of friendship to (Algeria), such as visit of Foreign Ministers, Laurent Fabius and Interior Minister, Manuel Valls and the recognition of the Elysee Palace, the recognition of the bloody nature in the events of October 17, 1961. It is quoted from Hollande advisers that he had hoped to persuade Bouteflika not to stay silent about the Islamist armed groups who control the North of Mali, yet, despite all this Algeria did not respond. Thus, the French central focus is the return of its influence to Mali as soon as possible and it sees that the road to that is through military intervention that occupies Northern Mali and then spreads to the south. It hopes to invest this "victory" so as to make its henchmen in Southern Mali moving as the front lines to France.
3. As for America, in spite of this, it wants to intervene to support its henchmen in the South of Mali, but it is not in a hurry to intervene. However, it wants to start from the problem of Mali to win Algeria to its influence, perhaps using it as a springboard in Africa against what it calls terrorism, just as Pakistan is a springboard in South Asia against the Taliban. Therefore, it doubled its movements in Algeria under the pretext of Mali, but the talks focused on the other issues!
This means that America's interest now is to penetrate its influence to Algeria from which it can delve further into Africa. This is more important to America than the military intervention in northern Mali. Although. Such an intervention is within its policy, but it wants it as a way to spread influence to Algeria. At the same time it doesn't want an influential role for France through the military intervention, should America decide seriously to approve it.
About the contacts of her officials with Algeria, it appears as if it is for Northern Mali, but the reality is to search for establishing links with Algeria. This can be seen clearly through reviewing her recent visits to Algeria. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Algeria and met its President Abdelaziz Bouteflika on 10/29/2012. U.S. Secretary of State Clinton said at the end of the meeting with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, "We discussed our very strong bilateral relations, and we have indicated that we had just finished an excellent strategic dialogue hosted by Washington last week. We had very deep talks on the situation in the region, especially in Mali." (AFP, Reuters 30/10/2012).
So it mentioned the bilateral relations in Algeria and the strategic dialogue with it ... It then mentioned the depth of talks about the region, especially Mali. America's goal in the first place was Algeria before the situation in Mali. What emphasized this concern in Algeria in the first place is that Clinton left behind her assistant, Elizabeth Jones, to continue talks with officials, indicating that there are agendas that America was able to achieve during this visit leaving her assistant to complete the work. Algerian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Amar Blaney replied,"The talks between Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci and the Assistant to the Secretary of State Anne Elizabeth Jones allowed assessment results recorded in the framework of the first session of the strategic Algerian and American dialogue and deepened the consultations on a number of regional issues" (APS 1/11/012).
America does not want to give France a role in any intervention, if it decides to intervene in this region, and it does not want to help her in launching a military mission there, because originally it was designed to remove French influence in Mali and in the region. America is primarily interested in Algeria and expanding her influence in it; and it is using the issue of Northern Mali as a pretext to move into and in the region. It works to find ways to achieve this purpose, most notably, through the work of creating a strategic partnership with Algeria, as it worked with Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Turkey. Therefore, it is talking with Algeria aiming at forming this partnership, which is a way to find an influence in the country through security, military and economic co-operation.
4. Many of the Algerian people realize that their country is targeted by the U.S. El Khabar newspaper was quoted on 29/10/2012 that the big chief of Tuareg tribe in Tamanrasset, 2,000 km south of the capital, has voiced his rejection to the military intervention in the North saying that "it is a prelude to the establishment of military bases in the desert." Also this newspaper quoted a statement from a parliament member, from the Ahaggar region, as saying: "What U.S. and France are demanding from foreign intervention will create a lot of problems and we as representatives of the Ahaggar region are asking Algeria to be steadfast in its stand against the foreign interference." Also the Anatolia Turkish agency quoted on 31/10/012 for Abdulaziz Rahabi who previously served as Minister of Communications and government's spokesperson as saying, "The Americans may request from Algeria to play a role similar to the role of Pakistan in the international war against Taliban and al-Qaeda inside Afghanistan." Explaining that "they will demand from Algeria to provide information and assistance to facilitate any air flights..."
In light of this, Algeria has clearly shown flexibility and leniency towards American contacts, as Britain does, and America is no doubt aware of this. America apparently believes that this is the first step to participate; America sees the influence by using economic temptation or by using the terrorism scarecrow, for other means of pressure! After all, this leniency was apparent in several visits for American officials to Algeria in the recent months. Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mourad Medelci, during his September visit to Washington praised the last evolution in U.S. relations with the Algerians and the consultations between them about the trouble spots in the region. He said, "that there is coordination and partnership between the countries of the Sahel (coast) and the partner countries, including the United States, to provide the right conditions to fight terrorism through information systems, technology, and equipment." He pointed to the development of relations between Algeria and Washington in terms of military and economic cooperation, because the United States is the primary trade partner for Algeria, standing at 17 billion dollars in 2011. (APS 1/11/012) The same agency said that the second meeting of the strategic dialogue between the two countries will take place next year in Algeria.
This was clarified through the statement issued by the Algerian Foreign Ministry on 28/10/012 a day before Clinton's visit in which it said: "the Clinton visit falls within the context of the first session of the Algerian-US Strategic Dialogue, which was held on October 19 of this month in Washington, which gave a significant boost for political consultation between the two countries." The statement added, "The talks will focus on strengthening the economic and security partnership between the two countries on regional and international issues." (UPI Agency U.S. 28/10/2012)
5. It is painful that Muslim countries including Algeria, Mali, and others are under the conflict between the major powers due to the absence of the Khilafah. These powers, the Kafir colonialist powers, are jostling over Muslim countries to consolidate influence over the Muslim lands and plunder their resources as well as preventing their return to implement their Deen in their lives through the establishment of the Khilafah.
Although, the Muslim people are rejecting any foreign interference, the existing regimes in their countries are satisfied with this intervention. These regimes are ready to accept the foreign interference. They are loyal to the Kafir colonialist countries, because it was founded on the basis of subordination to the West, through its constitutions and regulations and they appoint its rulers on this basis. The rulers have been groomed to be loyal and followers of these countries. If we don't rid these regimes, their constitutions, their rulers and the existing ruling mentality, then the Muslim lands will remain an arena for conflict between these countries.
However, when Algeria was a Wilayah in the Islamic Caliphate at the time of the Ottomans; America paid taxes to Algeria whenever their ships passed through the Islamic waters of the state. As stated in U.S. Archives, "America and its president and founder, George Washington signed an agreement dated 09/05/1795 AD with the Wali of Algeria, Hassan Pasha, that America must pay 12 thousand pounds of gold every year for the passage of its U.S. ships from the waters of the Wilayah of Algiers, and must pay 642 thousand pounds gold immediately in exchange for the Americans who were captured as well as being captured by the naval forces of the Caliphate State; when the first 11 American ships passed for the first time during the months of tenth and eleventh of 1793 ". Thus, this is how America used to regard Algeria when it was a Wilayah in the Caliphate State. America then used to fear Algeria, let alone thinking about having influence in Algeria!"
The duty on every Muslim who believes in Allah Almighty and His Messenger is to work to establish a caliphate that will restore the victory and glory for the nation. The first and foremost is to please Allah, this nation is the best nation out of people. This is a source of glory of this nation and its victory.
وَلَيَنْصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ
"Allah will certainly help those who help Him – Allah is All-Strong, Almighty." [al-Hajj, 22:40]

Supporting Gaza is neither through calling for peace nor through delegations for condolence of the martyrs

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Supporting Gaza is neither through calling for peace nor through delegations for condolence of the martyrs, but only through that strikes the Jewish entity morning and evening
For the fourth consecutive day, Gaza has been bombed by the Jewish entity from land, sea and air. The martyrs are in the dozens, whilst the wounded are in hundreds ... The rulers of the Muslim countries, especially those closest in proximity count the martyrs and the wounded. They compete both in condemnation and indignation, they protest both with quiet speech and loud! The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Qatar, the godfather of the Jewish entity in the region, is threatening from his “ostrich feathers” palace that the Jewish aggression "must not go unpunished!" Then they communicate with each other, talking about tragedies that happen in Gaza, feigning grief at what happened, they promise to send mediators to calm the situation down or by sending delegations to console ... Then the bombing on Gaza continues, whilst the delegations are underway and the referees do nothing! And the "best" amongst the rulers begins his day, from dawn, by saying, "I called shortly before dawn the U.S. President, Obama, we talked about the importance of stopping the aggression and that it should not be repeated." So he began his day from dawn talking with the protector of the Jewish entity, Obama; he talked about the importance of stopping the aggression...! Instead of starting his day by praying the fajr and leading the army to save the blood of the people of Gaza that has been spilled by the hands of the Jews, as if he is saying: "Blood for blood and demolition for demolition," but instead of this he starts his day speaking with Obama! What was worse is what was said by his company, when he was asked: What is the difference between you and the deposed ruler? He also withdrew the ambassador, denounced the aggression and called Obama...?! He replies: that there is a difference! We did it in a hurry, but the deposed ruler and his advisers used to do it slowly!
O Muslims: It is strange that a land of Islam has been occupied and its liberation has been lost in a crowd. All manner of solutions are searched for rather than looking for the right solution the people are mislead about the reality of the matter, as if the Jews have an independent state, where there are the issues that are related to the border between us and them, such that we conducted an agreement at Camp David or in the Wadi Araba or in Doha and so on, secretly or openly! Then we call for the respect of international law and that there is no place for the skirmishes that occur between the countries, across the border. We then seek for local, regional or international mediation, assuming that we have been hitting the nail on the head, as if Allah doesn't want the believers to fight!
Not so, O Muslims, rather the fact is that the Jews had usurped Palestine and established their state on it and they evicted its families. This state will not go away and Palestinians will not return to it, except by a strong believing army that responds to Allah's rule from above the seven heavens against the one who is killing us, and against the one who castes us out of our homes
(وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ ثَقِفْتُمُوهُمْ وَأَخْرِجُوهُمْ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَخْرَجُوكُمْ)
“And slay them Wherever you catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out…” [Surah al-Baqarah 2:191].
Is there any lack of awareness that this is the only solution, except for the one which Allah puts a seal on his heart, his hearing, and his eyesight? Is there another solution to restore Palestine back to its people, but by removing the entity that usurped Palestine and takes it out from where they took Palestine’s people out?
O Muslims: Our trial is in our rulers and in a group of their supporters ... They mislead the people that we cannot fight the Jews, and we don’t have their arms and we do not have the like of their helpers!
(كَبُرَتْ كَلِمَةً تَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ إِنْ يَقُولُونَ إِلَّا كَذِبًا)
“No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their it is a grievous thing that issues from their mouths As a saying what say is nothing but falsehood!” [Surah Al-Kahf 18/5].
We surround the Jewish entity, as a bracelet surrounds the wrist, whilst our armies are many ... but aggression does not appear against the Jewish aggressors, or against the kafir colonialist, but it is only shown against the Muslim people... And also against the militants in the Sinai who arm themselves to fight the Jewish entity that usurped Palestine, whilst these weapons only appear to kill the humans, trees and stones in Syria, only then do we witness several types of weapons of the regime that we have not seen before! These weapons then start to appear from Pakistan's airplanes bombing the Muslim in the tribal areas to help the Americans and appeared in the suppression of the people in Sudan at the time they lost South Sudan...! And the other things that the rulers come out with, without any shame before Allah, his Messenger and the believers ... As they say about the Jewish supporters, in fact Allah is our supporter and He is not their supporter
(ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ مَوْلَى الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَأَنَّ الْكَافِرِينَ لَا مَوْلَى لَهُم)
“That is because Allah is the Protector of those who believe, but those who reject Allah have no protector.” [Surah Muhammad 47:11]
Moreover, the rulers themselves are the first supporters of the Jewish entity, they protect its security and mislead the people about the strength of this entity, even though they had paved the way for the Muslim armies in an honest and sincere fight, they would expose the strength of the Jewish entity, as the frail web of a spider...
O Muslims: The pure blood of Gaza will not be saved by a neutral mediator that visits Gaza to calm the situation down or by delegations that comes to the Gaza Strip to console, nor by fiery speeches by a king, president or prince that does not exit his chambers, all of this is nothing but that which fools the people! The enemy does not take this seriously at all... nor do the wise people in this Ummah regards it as consequential. None do except the blind men who lost their sight, applauding this ruler or that because he sent them to console them, whilst the Jews entity bomb them even as the condolence delegation is besides them...!
The blood of the people of Gaza will not be victorious neither by this nor by that. It will only be made victorious by the armies that move from Sinai and the Jordan River, from south of the Litani River, from the Golan Heights, in whole or in part, setting upon the Jewish entity with ferocity... Armies that carry on their right the spirit of Abu Bakr, رضي الله عنه  that force the enemy forgetting the whispers of Satan ... So, O Muslims, that's how the blood of Palestine was victorious at the hands of the soldiers of Saladin, and so at the hands of the soldiers of al-Zahir Baybars, and so it must will be victorious at the hands of the Muslim soldiers who are longing to fight the Jewish entity ... This is the only way the pure blood of the people of Gaza will be victorious, and no wise one should claim otherwise, but the blind sighted, blind in this world and blind in the Hereafter
(وَمَنْ كَانَ فِي هَذِهِ أَعْمَى فَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ أَعْمَى وَأَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا)
“But those who were blind In this world, will be blind In the Hereafter, and Most astray from the path”. [Surah Al-Isra’a 17:72]
O sincere soldiers in Muslim armies: Don’t you have a wise man amongst you to force these rulers to deal with the Jewish entity in actual war, through moving the armies to rip this entity asunder...?
Do you not have a strong tough man amongst you, a believer that breaks these rulers' backs, and move with his battalion in Jihad that Allah and His Messenger loves; to rip this usurper's entity out from its roots? The fired shot by a battalion will be followed by shots from other battalions and no unjust ruler can stop it, and so you will be the winners in good and victory
(إِنْ تَنْصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنْصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ)
“O you who believe! if you will aid (the cause of) Allah, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly.” [Surah Muhammad 47:7.]
Do you not have a rightly guided man that grants Nussrah (Support) for the sake of Allah and His Messenger to the worshippers of Allah who are working to establish the Khilafah; then you will relive the life of the Supporters (Ansar), and you will witness the dignity of this world and the Hereafter. Allah will provide you with His victory, then the prophecy of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  will be materialized at your hands, the establishment of the Khilafah on the Methodology of the Prophethood and the prophecy of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم to fight the Jews will be maintained by the victory over them. Then you will win the glory of this world and the hereafter, and the believers will be blessed.
O sincere soldiers:
Hizb ut-Tahrir is your sincere adviser, Allah has men that appear when needed most, so be from them...
Praise is to Allah in the Nussrah (Support) for the establishment of the Khilafah, the glory of al-Islam, so we have the Khilafah behind whom we fight and by whom we are protected...
Praise is to Allah in the pinnacle of Islam, Jihad, victory or martyrdom...
Praise is to Allah in commerce that will save you from a painful torment through following the best of sayings and the most sincere, the words of Allah:
(انْفِرُوا خِفَافًا وَثِقَالًا وَجَاهِدُوا بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنْفُسِكُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ)
“Go you forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle, with your goods and your persons, In the cause of Allah. that is best for you, if you (but) knew.” [Surah At-Tawba 9:41]

Video: Gradual Change vs. Radical Change by Sheikh Issam Ameireh

Talk by Sheikh Issam Ameireh from al-Quds at Hizb ut-Tahrir's recent conference in Scandinavia. 

Gaza: Between Rhetoric and Liberation

The new Hijri year is upon us, marking the 1434th year since Rasoolullah s.a.w. migrated to Madina and established the Khilafah. But instead of being in a mood of celebration over the victory that was given to the Prophet s.a.w after years of persecution and hardship the Ummah finds herself in a morbid reality, one which is neither befitting her glorious nature nor a testimony of her magnificent past.

It was a Wednesday on 14th November and the Palestinians had not yet recovered from the holocaust of 2008, that Israel decided it was time for more raids and targeted assassinations and rockets. The media coverage has blatantly proven its bias agendas, and world leaders with their one sided condemnations have shown their true colours, where by murder is only murder when the one killed is not a Palestinian otherwise the life lost is not of any worth, even if it be the life of a young child; the child then becomes the terrorist and the perpetrator becomes the civilised law upholder defending himself.

The Muslim ummah all over the world reacted in a manner which was befitting to her, like a single body, united in her thoughts and emotions for her counterpart in Gaza. However the reaction of the so-called Muslim leaders was one of the usual cowardice, hypocrisy and treachery and should be magnified to understand the extent of their treachery and distance from the emotions of the ummah. Namely those leaders who like to use the prefix of ‘Islamists’ and Islamist slogans about liberating Palestine during their election campaigns.

If the past few months have proven anything it is that Islam is used as a tool to appease the Ummah whose intentions have always been sincere, so while the Ummah hopes that the slogans of Islam being the solution and the constitution and look forward to the liberation of Palestine, they are soon disappointed when the respective leaders get into their seat of power. In this regard it would be wise to acknowledge that those who do not rule by Islam care very little about the Muslims who are being massacred right next door, because their bond is not a bond of Iman, it is a bond of greed and benefit. Such is the case with Dr Mohammed Mursi; in his campaign his spokespeople claimed the following; “Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem with God’s will. Our chants shall be: ‘millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem’,”

It was further claimed by Safwat Hegazy in Mursi’s election campaign:
“Yes, we will either pray in Jerusalem or we will be martyred there,” and yet more optimistically;
“The United States of the Arabs will be restored on the hands of that man [Mursi] and his supporters. The capital of the [Muslim] Caliphate will be Jerusalem with God’s will,”

But the reality couldn’t be more devastating from these slogans; the reality soon became the same as ever, that just like his previous predecessors;  Mursi became good for talking and only talking, and now we see him being used as a tool by the US to call a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, as if though it is only Hamas members that are being killed and not innocent unarmed civilians. Mursi’s limited ‘action’ points included the following;
  • Recalling his ambassador from Tel Aviv
  • Rallying support at the Cairo-based Arab League
  • Giving further rhetoric about the importance of this issue

Has Mursi then actually done anything  new for Gaza which wasn’t already discussed in rhetoric in the annual Arab league summits?  the answer is a categorical no; Mursi has only taken a few steps of speech to give the illusion that his era is different to that of Mubarak’s, because he fears the wrath of those sincere Muslims who voted him in while holding him to his empty and baseless promises. The same Safwat Hegazy who made promises on Mursi’s behalf of the Caliphate being established has the following to say about the inaction of this unbelieving saviour;

“Be patient as the companions of the Prophet have been patient in their time,” said preacher Safwat Hegazy, who backed Mursi’s election, telling followers “we are building a state that needs years and years of intense efforts.”

They tell us to be patient as the companions of the prophet were patient; let us inform them to be fierce as the companions were fierce; and to enjoin the good and forbid the evil as the companions did, and to defend the honour and life of Muslims as the companions did.

In actual fact Mohammed Mursi is not building a state which is remotely Islamic because his dependency is upon the Whitehouse and he has willingly become the pawn by which Israel and America strengthen their support and stronghold over an isolated Zionist state surrounded by Millions of Muslims and Muslim land. Egypt alone possesses 240 F-16 Fighter Planes, 1200 Air Force Planes, 450,000 Soldiers capable of easing the pain of the Gazan’s by defending their lives, yet we are given empty rhetoric that it will take them years to establish this state which will protect muslim lives right next door as if though they possess no army.

We can give many examples of the Prophet, the Sahabah and Sallahudin and his likes of when they didn’t take excessive time to plan and plot when it was a matter of a believers life, because the life of the believer has sanctity and they feared its accountability, but it is more appropriate for us that we contrast the example of Saif ad-Din Qutuz with Mursi, who faced the mighty Mongols who were fiercest fighters of the time; such was the fear that the Mongols striked in the hearts of believers that Muslims would dig their own graves to hide in them waiting for the Mongols to leave; when the same Hulagu turned his face towards Egypt however after defeating Damascus; instead of digging a grave to hide in, al-Qutuz started to marched towards the barabaric army of Hulago to deter them and face them with the rightful bravery of a Muslim leader and a soldier, we beg the question; did Mursi not read our history of glorious leaders before assuming the place of leadership? Or did his leadership lessons come from the Whitehouse and Tel Aviv to begin with?

If there were any excuses left to be made for Mursi over his lack of an Islamic constitution, what has been made crystal clear in the past few days is that to expect Mursi to take actual action against the oppression of Muslim in Gaza is nothing short of naïve; this is because Mohammed Mursi is not unlike other  Arab leaders since the very establishment of Israel  who have played the crucial role of making Israel a mental crusader which is invincible; despite the fact that Israel is established in the heart of Muslim lands and sustains itself on the reserve oils that Arab traitors sell it, and the public opinion of the Whitehouse from thousands of miles away.

A precedent to the creation of the Israeli state and the actualization of the Balfour Declaration was the dismemberment of the Muslim world through Sykes-Picot under the auspices of Colonial domination. Our collective consciousness shifted from a trans-historical and universal affiliation to an Ummah to that of identification with an artificial state. Each of these newly constructed states had their own “national or internal interests” and “foreign policies”. And hence our military strength was essentially neutralized and the future of these nation-states determined by the  their political dependence on hegemonic Western powers. Lacking political or economic immunity and military strength, these states provided the newly implanted Israeli state the ability to flourish with only minor disturbances. Devastating defeats of the Arab armies in 1967 and 1973 testified to the weakness and futility of the divided military strength of our Ummah. From both a strategic and principled perspective, dealing with the Israel involves the creation of a strong political and economic entity with a united military force which can act as a counter-weight and counter-hegemonic force to both Israel and its hegemonic partners in the region. Such a model can be no other then theKhilafah, unless one still envisions a pan-Arab state. However, the political establishment in Egypt only serves to legitimize the very same nation-state borders which we must dismantle. At best, the new government in Egypt can spew anti-Israeli rhetoric and support small acts of resistance localized and concentrated in Gaza or the West Bank. Real solutions however are only prolonged so long as we recognize the legitimacy of these false borders and more so, if we continue to reproduce them through political participation.

The Zionist state was the first thorn in the eyes of the Ummah after the contrived destruction of the Khilafah, thus it is only rational that the return of that very Khilafah which in the palaces of Istanbul once refused to sell Palestine to the Zionist, be the solution for the Muslims in Gaza; because it is only the army of the Khilafah that will adopt the interest of the Muslims and not puppet leaders whose agendas are set by their Western masters.

Gaza: Tangled Web of Interests

By Abu Anas

The Israeli assassination of Hamas' military chief has escalated to a larger conflict, where on one side Hamas is storming Israel with rockets and on the other Israel threatening a full ground invasion of Gaza. Hamas has threatened to make this Israeli aggression into a "hell" burning the perpetrators. In response, the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, approved a call-up of 75,000 reservists for deployment by the army in the case of an escalation in the conflict.[1] To completely understand the situation, a political observer must understand the tangled web of relations and interests of the world and regional players in respect to the conflict. 

The American stance has always been unrelenting in support for Israel's aggression in Gaza. The Israelis have been in negotiations for months with the US regarding the way to deal with the Iranian nuclear program. These negotiations occurred during the many visits that the US high-level administration and military officials have taken to Israel, like the one by Gen Dempsey in late October.[2] Both sides have reached a deal whereby the Israelis would delay a unilateral strike until next summer and in return the US would provide four things in return. First, continued support in the missile defense system in northern Israel for additional protection from the Iranian ballistic missiles. Second, increased financial support for the Iron Dome program, built by Israel defense manufacturer, RAFAEL. Third, pressure Iran to comply with a treaty of Nuclear non-proliferation within the Middle East.[3] Fourth, is full support on an invasion on Gaza, which is unraveling right now. The Europeans, especially the British, angered due to being sidelined by these negotiations, have been a loud critic against an Israeli invasion of Gaza.

The Egyptian government has opened the previously closed Rafah border, only allowing injured to pass to hospitals for treatment and then return back to Gaza. An Egyptian journalist sets even a gloomier picture on the border stating that “there are trucks full of humanitarian aid trying to get into Gaza through Rafah that are not being let through."[4] Egypt is concerned with its own interests that is to prevent Palestinians from settling in Egypt. Additionally, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) does not want to disturb Egypt’s relationship with Israel that is agreed upon in the Camp David accords, therefore they have restricted any support from reaching Gaza. This dichotomy within the MB's personality is due to their pragmatic approach to politics, which sidelines their Islamic ideological principles for a more cost-benefit analysis of their interests. The MB still has to cater to their constituency and that is how the visit by the Egyptian prime minister should be understood, as an act of showing emotional solidarity for public consumption.

The other Arab regimes have been silent on the conflict, where Nabil al-Arabi, secretary of the Arab League announced that he will lead a delegation of Arab prime ministers on a visit to Gaza on November 20th.[5] This move and others by the Tunisian and Moroccan Prime Ministers have the same purpose of catering to the public outrage at home by showing token acts of solidarity, which does not amount to any real political action. The Syrian regime might benefit from getting out of the world’s media spotlight, therefore committing more egregious atrocities. On the other hand, theJordanian regime might be under more pressure due the public's anger which will inevitably increase as more and more Palestinians are killed in Gaza. 

Hezbollah, in Lebanon, has been forecasted to act in-sync with Hamas to support their axis-of-resistance teammate, according to some analysts. Hezbollah is not likely to open up a second front in northern Israel for three reasons. First, Hezbollah is deeply involved within the Syrian conflict dedicating part of its resources to support Bashar al-Assad.Second, the political situation in Lebanon is very tense and Hezbollah's priority is to secure its dominance as a political and military power in Lebanon. Third, Hezbollah is happy with the current military equation with Israel where it has deterred Israel from invading Lebanon by making it painful enough to prevent Israel from doing so, and it keeping itself as a defensive force and not an offensive one. All these reasons will prevent Hezbollah from entering this conflict.

While the Palestinian people in Gaza are not likely to get any outside help from their Arab neighbors or the so-called international community, they certainly have a strong Islamic sentiments backing them up within the Muslim public. The Arab regimes have stood silent against the Israeli aggression and the Western world backed Israel unequivocally. If the Arab Spring has not altered the balance of power within the Middle East up until now, its resonance will definitely shape the region for decades to come.
