On the dawn of Wednesday, 21/8/2013, Bashar the butcher ordered the bombing of neighborhoods in Eastern and Western Ghouta of rural Damascus using chemical weapons, leaving about 1300 killed and thousands of cases pathological symptoms as a result of this weapon that had struck children, women and men, in a scene that leaves no mercy what so ever in anyone's heart for the perpetrators of this act, which was denied by the criminal regime, and was described by the crow of the Syrian media Imran Al-Zobi as a ridiculous claim.
America, the master of crime and global terrorism, with its habit of covering up the crimes of its agent, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, "We are formally requesting that the United Nations urgently investigate this new allegation". He did not say to "instantly investigate" especially since an international investigation team already exists in Damascus since Sunday of 18/8. In turn, the head of this investigation team, Ake Sellstrom, commented on today's attack saying that the source of the attack's news should be investigated, noting that while he had only seen TV footage, the number of casualties reported raises suspicions. As for Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, he expressed his "shock" at these allegations. The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich announced that "The missile with a chemical poison gas serine was launched by Syrian rebels and targeted the eastern neighborhood of Damascus". Russia considered the attack as a "provocation planned in advance" in conjunction with the beginning of UN experts task... as for what was released from the Security Council in a meeting held on the same day as the massacre allocated for the Syrian issue, it expressed its concern over the allegations of the use of Chemical weapons in the Eastern suburbs of Damascus. At this meeting, the Deputy Secretary-General of the UN Jan Eliasson informed the Security Council that the Syrian authorities refused to expedite the investigation team to go to places which is said to have been targeted with chemical weapons.
This is how the Kaffir Capitalist West along with the unjust International Community describes this heinous massacre as an allegation; this description indeed holds in it the will to cover over this crime. The Western states declare day and night that what it fears most is the chemical arsenal falling into the hands of extremists meaning Islamists, whereas, it is silent over the Syrian regime's possession of this arsenal, it even covers up the regime's use of it in such a hostile wicked way against the Muslims even if they were children and innocent women; and that is only because they fear the Islamic nature of the revolution in Syria, which declared its identity from the beginning by raising its slogans: "It is for Allah, it is for Allah" and "Syria wants an Islamic Khilafah". In reality, this crime is firstly planned by the Capitalist Kaffir west, headed by America. Bashar is nothing but one of its death tools, and if he were not thus, he would have not dared to commit this crime which beasts refuse to commit something of its sorts. This crime is intended to drive Muslims to abandon their project of ruling by Islam. This event requires us to issue an outcry to the hearts rather than a political analysis illustrating the hidden intentions of this cursed regime, which now poses greater danger than the germs of this era known as Swine Flu and Mad Cow disease.
O Muslims throughout all Muslim lands: The first Shar'i obligation upon you towards these incidents is to declare what your brethren in Syria have declared – that you want the rule of Islam, and that you eradicate these agent regimes which do not differ from the Syrian regime in their crimes, their distance from Islam and their attachment to the West. These regimes possess armies and weapons that could change the equation on earth, they however prevent this from happening for the same reason as the reason of Bashar's killing of Muslims, which is to prevent the rule of Islam. And the first of them who claim the support of the revolution are the rulers of Saudi Arabia, and the first of the supporters of the other side are the rulers of Iran who erected themselves as enemies to this Ummah and agents to America. We hereby turn to the Muslims in sincere advice for the sake of Allah: your silence over the betrayal of your rulers is what dared the West and its allies of the rulers against you, and your restraint to work for change makes you fall in the sin committed by them, making you partners in their sin.
O soldiers in the Muslim armies: Until when will you stay as a mark of submissiveness although you have only been found for Jihad, making the Deen victorious and fighting the enemies of the Muslims? Are you not aware that you are the first to be accountable of supporting and helping your rulers of oppression, the agents of the west and the enemies of your Deen and your Ummah? The first and foremost obligation upon you is to become the helpers of Allah by giving victory to those working for the establishment of the Deen through the establishment of the Khilafah State; hence you remove those rulers and allow the workers until the command of Allah is established and the missing glory is restored, thus the lands of the Muslims will unite and the flag of Islam will be raised and the flag of Kufr collapses. The West wanted you to be the protectors of their agent regimes, and Allah سبحانه وتعالى obliged you to be His helpers, so is there a second choice to the choice of Allah سبحانه وتعالى?! Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:
وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْرًا أَنْ يَكُونَ لَهُمُ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ وَمَنْ يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا مُبِينًا
"When Allah and His Messenger have decided something it is not for any man or woman of the believers to have a choice about it. Anyone who disobeys Allah and His Messenger is clearly misguided."
O Muslims persevering in patience and constancy in the Sham of promised victory from Allah سبحانه وتعالى: It is by Allah a great honor that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has chosen you to be the forefront of returning Islam to His missing house, so guard this honor and bounty. It is true that the price you are paying is great, but do not forget that the commodity of Allah is al-Jannah. We ask Allah سبحانه وتعالى that the Angels wash our deceased, and that Allah سبحانه وتعالى allows them to be quotients of birds in Jannah, and that the Shuhada shall gather their families to Jannah on the Day of Judgment, He is The Most Beneficent, The All-Hearer. Know that the stance you are taking today is the stance that should be taken by the whole Ummah, you have indeed preceded when the people retarded, so glad tidings to you. No one knows what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has of great reward except Him. Certainly victory is but an hour of patience, and most of it has passed by the will of Allah.
O officers among the people of power working and Syrian army dissidents, and O noble fighters in the armed groups: Direct your power for the sake of accomplishing one aim, which is making the Deen of Allah victorious, do not disperse from the straight path of Allah سبحانه وتعالى to the ways of the regimes that are ruling by other than what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed even if it has funded you with money and weaponry, for all of them, without exception, want you to side with them against Islam, and every time they give you in the Dunya, they take away from your Deen until nothing is left. Though what the rulers of Turkey, Saudi, Qatar and others who claim their keenness for the revolution own of weapons, that if they supplied you with one tenth of it, then the scales of power would change for your benefit, the wretched Syrian regime would have become of the past, and the Ruwaibidha rulers would have become Western agendas, waiting for the orders of their masters...only Islam will save you, and the shar'i obligation upon you is to make the Deen of Allah victorious through giving victory to those working for the establishment of the Khilafah state. And know that when the approach to Allah سبحانه وتعالى is correct, and the work is correct, and the intention is sincere; then the victory will come from Allah سبحانه وتعالى without delay; hence what has been said is true: the closest path to reach the victory of Allah سبحانه وتعالى is the path that was crossed by the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم". This is the path which Hizb ut Tahrir in Syria is calling its brethren to cross. Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:
وَلَا تَهِنُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنْتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ
إِنْ يَمْسَسْكُمْ قَرْحٌ فَقَدْ مَسَّ الْقَوْمَ قَرْحٌ مِثْلُهُ ۚ وَتِلْكَ الْأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنْكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ ۗ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ
وَلِيُمَحِّصَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَمْحَقَ الْكَافِرِينَ
"Do not give up and do not be downhearted. You shall be uppermost if you are believers. If you have received a wound, they have already received a similar wound. We deal out such days to people turn by turn, so that Allah will know those who have iman and can gather martyrs from among you – Allah does not love wrongdoers – and so that Allah can purge those who believe and wipe out the kafirun."
O Allah, facilitate this journey of ours and let us cover its distance quickly, and be our best Companion and Helper. Ameen. Our last prayer is Alhamdulillah, Lord of the Worlds.
