News pours in daily about the fall of numerous defenseless civilians, especially women and children in Gaza as a result of the fierce 'Israeli' attack on Gaza continuing for more than two weeks, which they named Operation Protective Edge. The number of victims of the aggression as of dawn, Wednesday, 24/07/2014 reached 640 martyrs and 4030 wounded, which included hundreds of women and children, and the number is expected to increase, yet no one has moved a muscle... The inaction of the Muslim and Arab world rulers reached its peak; those hideous massacres and scenes of killing, destruction, burning and deformation did not stir an atom in their feelings or hearts. And their ears did not hear the screams, moans and cries from the mouths of children and women.
The targeting of women and children in this war on Gaza is obvious. They kill them everywhere; in their homes, streets, schools, hospitals, and even on the beach. They are killed as they eat, as they sleep and as they play. Every child and every woman who is capable of having children is a target for them... Missiles that do not discriminate between stones, trees and human beings; they kill and crush all, so blood and body parts are mixed with dirt and rocks in glaring and painful scenes, that the media could not ignore or overlook for their barbarity and abundance... Tender soft body parts of children are scattered into carnages... Entire families exterminated under the rubble... Tens of thousands are displaced from their homes, seeking the lost safety in all parts of Gaza... from one refuge to another, fleeing from death to death and from destruction to destruction!
All this occurs and the whole world is merely watching, except for marches and demonstrations condemning the aggression and demanding its halt... All this occurs under an international and Arabian conspiracy. And this occurs while the Rafah crossing is closed in the face of the people of Gaza, their wounded, their tragedies and even the entry of medication to them! All this occurs and Turkey's oil is what fuels the Israeli planes which bombs, at the time that Erdogan sheds tears for the victims of Gaza! This occurs while the Authority of Shame, stands watching, rather it supports the aggression, through its remarks and coordination, and its standing against those who object to this aggression under the pretext of maintaining the checkpoints and borders! And as usual in all aggressions, some Gulf States prepared to send material and medical aid, as if they were paying the blood money for these victims instead of having the criminal who committed those crimes against them...
So O Ummah of Islam:
This is not what the steadfast women and children of Gaza need. They do not need money, aid and the reconstruction of what was destroyed by the war, but they want one who will save them and free them and also free the rest of Palestine and Jerusalem. They want one who takes revenge for them from these criminals, murderers, and brings to trial and punishes, with an iron hand, those who stand by their side, helped them and contributed to this dirty war against their fellow Muslims in order to preserve their thrones and chairs! So, for how long will the pure blood be spilled on the land of Gaza and on other occupied lands! For how long will the humiliation and indignity continue, or has the humiliation become nobility and the indignity become accustomed to!!
Until when is the silence and submission! For how long is the dependency on the enemy and his aides! Has not the blood, the pain and the cries of children and women driven your hearts and minds to know where you should direct your weapons at and how to direct them; united and concerted against a common enemy! If individual gunmen armed with belief were able to fight the enemy and inflicted it, even though they will not reach the liberation of the land and the people, so how about if all the armies gather under the command of one Imam calling for jihad!
Your position is to defend your Islamic Ummah, your role is to lend a helping hand to anyone who wants the arbitration of Allah's Law on earth and the return of the Khilafah state to avenge the blood and the honors, and liberate and protect the country and the people... The Almighty says:
وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ مِّلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمينَ مِن قَبْلُ وَفِي هَذَا لِيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِاللَّهِ هُوَ مَوْلَاكُمْ فَنِعْمَ الْمَوْلَى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ
"Do jihad for Allah with the jihad due to Him. He has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the deen – the religion of your forefather Ibrahim. He named you Muslims before and also in this, so that the Messenger could be witness against you and you could be witnesses against all mankind. So establish salat and pay zakat and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protector – the Best Protector, the Best Helper."
