An Open Letter From Hizb ut Tahrir in the Blessed Land of Palestine to the Palestinian Authority:
Take Your Hands Off Our Children!
The Minister of Education in your Palestinian Authority (PA) continues the repetitive statements rejecting the American and the Jewish pressures to change the education curriculum. He said: "All attempts and external pressures that are exerted on the Palestinian Authority and leadership, will not yield any change in the education curriculum, and all attempts to divert the educational compass from the right track will fail", this is in response to what John Kerry said in December 2015, when he called for fundamental changes to the Palestinian curriculum, under the pretext that they sow violence, hatred and harm to the Jewish state and its security. And what is strange is that after you refused these pressures in your own words, you quickly contradicted yourselves and fell in a ravine of humiliation and concessions, and as soon as the new (school) year started we found out that the curriculum has changed, in compliance to the American will. You were not sufficed with the great sins in the old curriculum; that we issued a book to expose in 2004, as if your masters, found something in it that is a reminiscent of our Deen and our values, so you proceeded in creating destruction and change consistent with the programs of the enemies of Islam that intend to banish Islam and its concepts from Muslim's life, but rather from their hearts and minds.
﴿وَدَّ كَثِيرٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ لَوْ يَرُدُّونَكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ إِيمَانِكُمْ كُفَّارًا حَسَدًا مِنْ عِنْدِ أَنْفُسِهِمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْحَقُّ﴾
“Many of the People of the Scripture wish they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed, out of envy from themselves [even] after the truth has become clear to them.” [Al-Baqara: 109]
A quick glance into the new curriculum shows that every crime committed is bigger than the next, the changes in the curriculum focused on consolidating secularism and the removal of the Islamic creed and obscuring its concepts, and ignored the brotherhood of Islam that made Muslims as one Ummah, and it was keen to equate Islam to other religions.
The curriculum is keen to equate Islam to Christianity, that is equating the Deen of Tawheed to the religion of Kufr and Trinity, Allah (swt) says:
﴿لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ ثَالِثُ ثَلَاثَةٍ وَمَا مِنْ إِلَهٍ إِلَّا إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ وَإِنْ لَمْ يَنْتَهُوا عَمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَيَمَسَّنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ﴾
“They have certainly disbelieved who say, "Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.” [Al-Ma’ida: 73]
Which Muslim would ask students in the third grade to colour a (drawing of) church?! Which is mentioned in your books more than the mosque. You committed evil when you equated prostration (sujud) to Allah the One with the prostrating to the Cross, when you showed a picture of a boy going to pray in the mosque and a girl going to the church, (Book of National Upbringing, 3rd grade p. 92), and you were disturbed or perhaps your masters were disturbed by the statement that Islam is the Deen of truth, so you withdrew it from the explanation of Surat Al-Kaafiroon (Islamic Education, 2nd grade), and you did not bear the explanation of the meaning of those who disbelieved of the people of the book that they are Jews and Christians, in Surhat Al-Bayina (Islamic Education, 4th grade).
As for the language of the Qur’an, the Arabic language, the Arabic language books did not contain any Ayah (Qur’anic verse) or Hadith, and Surat Al-Fatihah, Umm Al Kitab (the mother of the Book) was omitted from the first grade Islamic Education book, and we do not know if it will be present in the second semester or not. The curriculum deliberately connected the virtues and good moral to citizenship, and human rights and distanced them from the words of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw), and did not mention symbols of Islam in the books like Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed and Salahuddin Al-Ayoobi, and replaced a lesson titled the Intelligence of a Commander, which talked about Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed and the Battle of Mu’tah, by a lesson titled the Intelligence of a Mouse! (Arabic language book, 3rd grade).
After that you founded your Palestinan Authority upon compromising and surrendering most of Palestine, you wanted to wipe out from the minds of our children the duty to liberate it and return it as it was an Islamic land of Kharaj, that belongs to the Ummah of Muhammad (saw), your curriculum sanctifies a flag drawn by Sykes the Englishman and Picot the Frenchman, and celebrates the alleged independence of a false state that does not exist except in your imagination, then you make our children study about this alleged state, and you prove its existance by Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital, which you can not reach only by the permission of the Jews, and the head of the state can not move about without the permission of the Jews, and a security apparatus trained by Dayton to protect the Jewish entity, and even your travel is by using passports that has a seal of entry and exit by the Jews, what nonesense and distortion do you pass to the minds of our children?
This is the tip of the iceberg of criminality contained in your curriculum, that you have not fully revealed, your crime against our children and your war on the values of Islam did not stop at the curriculum, despite its evil, but you follow it with what is the most dangerous under the name of extracurricular activities, under which you opened our schools to the interest based banks and to all associations and institutions funded by the Kuffar who abhor our Deen and values and want to convey their immorality and diseases to us, until such suspicious bodies accessed our schools and advocated the poisons of democracy, secularism and compromising solutions, and are destroying the morals and values and chastity in our sons and daughters by calling for activities encouraging mixing of genders, and distributes materials containing words and illustrations and explanations regarding intercourse and sexual harassment, which a man will be ashamed to mention in front of his wife, which comes in the context of portraying our societies being immersed in subtle vice, they are also working to overcome the obstacles and marketing the vice before our sons and daughters.
You did not limit yourselves to these activities in the schools, but you opened the doors of universities to mixed concerts and immoral singing bands so you deepen the corruption of our children, including concerts sponsored by the mobile phone company recently of the band singing Kufr which revives Buddhism, not to mention the immorality and mixing that came with it, all this is happening under the pretext of financial support, and your tongue is saying to the people: We sell your children and your honor to the highest bidder!
O heedless ones in the Palestinian Authority:
﴿وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لَا يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لَا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لَا يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا أُولَئِكَ كَالْأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ﴾
“And We have certainly created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear. Those are like livestock; rather, they are more astray. It is they who are the heedless” [Al-A’raf: 179]
From the signs of the Hour and the loss of the trust, is that people like you become responsible of the question of Palestine, and decide the fate of our children, the Messenger of Allah (saw) said:
«فَإِذَا ضُيِّعَتِ الأَمَانَةُ فَانْتَظِرِ السَّاعَةَ»، قَالَ: كَيْفَ إِضَاعَتُهَا؟ قَالَ: «إِذَا وُسِّدَ الأَمْرُ إِلَى غَيْرِ أَهْلِهِ فَانْتَظِرِ السَّاعَةَ»
“If the trust is betrayed, then wait for the Hour” he said: how is it betrayed? He (saw) said: “If the matter is not referred to its people (of Knowledge) then wait for the Hour.” (Narrated by Bukhari)
But know that in the Blessed Land there are pious and righteous men, the Messenger of Allah (saw) has mentioned them as a glad-tiding, they will be victorious upon the truth, standing in the face of your evil, the Messenger of Allah (saw):
«لَا تَزَالُ طَائِفَةٌ مِنْ أُمَّتِي قَائِمَةً بِأَمْرِ اللهِ، لَا يَضُرُّهُمْ مَنْ خَذَلَهُمْ أَوْ خَالَفَهُمْ، حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ أَمْرُ اللهِ وَهُمْ ظَاهِرُونَ عَلَى النَّاسِ»
They work with their Muslim brothers in the Muslim countries to establish the Deen of Allah on earth and establish the righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood, and are working to move the Muslim armies and lead them to liberate the Holy Land to cleanse it from the abomination of the Jews and rid it of your corruption and tyranny, we have a date with Allah’s victory.
﴿إِنَّا لَنَنْصُرُ رُسُلَنَا وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْأَشْهَادُ * يَوْمَ لَا يَنْفَعُ الظَّالِمِينَ مَعْذِرَتُهُمْ وَلَهُمُ اللَّعْنَةُ وَلَهُمْ سُوءُ الدَّارِ﴾
“Indeed, We will support Our messengers and those who believe during the life of this world and on the Day when the witnesses will stand *The Day their excuse will not benefit the wrongdoers, and they will have the curse, and they will have the worst home.” [Ghafir: 51-52]
Our children need: the righteous men who will spread amongst them dignity, and education curriculum that builds in them the Islamic values, and elevate the status of their Deen and creed and elevate them in the paths of science and knowledge in all areas of life, to carry out the Dawah of goodness to all mankind, becoming witnesses to mankind.
﴿وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا لِتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ﴾
“And thus we have made you a just community that you will be witnesses over the people” [Al-Baqara: 143]
Our children need an education policy and curricula based on the doctrine of “La Illaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasool Allah” that teaches them to love Allah and His Messenger and Jihad for the sake of Allah, instilling in them the longing for the pleasure of Allah and His Jannah, and the fear of His wrath and torment, and that contains the worldly science which puts them in forefront of the nations, and the peak of the peaks.
In conclusion: We know that our open letter will fill the hearts of the senior criminals with fury because they are continuing in their transgression, oblivious from mentioning Allah and the need to obey Him, heedless of His great wrath and painful punishment and torment, they have permitted the surrendering of the Holy Land to the Jews, and accepted to be humiliated by America and the Jews and others who are spiteful of Islam, and who spread immorality among the people, but we say to these criminals: that Islam, which is in the hearts of the Muslims and the growing anger in the hearts of the believers towards your crimes is what we are
counting on, and if you think that America and the Jews will protect you from the wrath of the Ummah or provide you with a cover you are deluded! America could not spare Mubarak with anything, he was one of its most loyal puppet, and above this, America and all the tyrant rulers will perish soon, Allah willing, that is what Allah and His Messenger, promised and they are truthful. So stop! Take your hands off our children and the question of Palestine, if you understand?
We end our letter with the words of Allah (swt):
﴿وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَارُ * مُهْطِعِينَ مُقْنِعِي رُءُوسِهِمْ لَا يَرْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِمْ طَرْفُهُمْ وَأَفْئِدَتُهُمْ هَوَاءٌ * وَأَنْذِرِ النَّاسَ يَوْمَ يَأْتِيهِمُ الْعَذَابُ فَيَقُولُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا رَبَّنَا أَخِّرْنَا إِلَى أَجَلٍ قَرِيبٍ نُجِبْ دَعْوَتَكَ وَنَتَّبِعِ الرُّسُلَ أَوَلَمْ تَكُونُوا أَقْسَمْتُمْ مِنْ قَبْلُ مَا لَكُمْ مِنْ زَوَالٍ * وَسَكَنْتُمْ فِي مَسَاكِنِ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَتَبَيَّنَ لَكُمْ كَيْفَ فَعَلْنَا بِهِمْ وَضَرَبْنَا لَكُمُ الْأَمْثَالَ * وَقَدْ مَكَرُوا مَكْرَهُمْ وَعِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَكْرُهُمْ وَإِنْ كَانَ مَكْرُهُمْ لِتَزُولَ مِنْهُ الْجِبَالُ * فَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ مُخْلِفَ وَعْدِهِ رُسُلَهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ ذُو انْتِقَامٍ * يَوْمَ تُبَدَّلُ الْأَرْضُ غَيْرَ الْأَرْضِ وَالسَّمَاوَاتُ وَبَرَزُوا لِلَّهِ الْوَاحِدِ الْقَهَّارِ * وَتَرَى الْمُجْرِمِينَ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُقَرَّنِينَ فِي الْأَصْفَادِ * سَرَابِيلُهُمْ مِنْ قَطِرَانٍ وَتَغْشَى وُجُوهَهُمُ النَّارُ * لِيَجْزِيَ اللَّهُ كُلَّ نَفْسٍ مَا كَسَبَتْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ * هَذَا بَلَاغٌ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيُنْذَرُوا بِهِ وَلِيَعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا هُوَ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ وَلِيَذَّكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ﴾
“And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror]. Racing ahead, their heads raised up, their glance does not come back to them, and their hearts are void. And, [O Muhammad], warn the people of a Day when the punishment will come to them and those who did wrong will say, "Our Lord, delay us for a short term; we will answer Your call and follow the messengers." [But it will be said], "Had you not sworn, before, that for you there would be no cessation? And you lived among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, and it had become clear to you how We dealt with them. And We presented for you [many] examples." And they had planned their plan, but with Allah is [recorded] their plan, even if their plan had been [sufficient] to do away with the mountains. So never think that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution. [It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah, the One, the Prevailing. And you will see the criminals that Day bound together in shackles, Their garments of liquid pitch and their faces covered by the Fire. So that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned. Indeed, Allah is swift in account. This [Qur'an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded” [Ibrahim: 42-52]
