There has been consecutive warnings by human rights and humanitarian organizations and committees at the start of the military operation in Mosul on Monday, 17/10/2016, of an imminent humanitarian catastrophe in the city, and an onset of a bloodbath of civilians and of using them as human shields. According to Save the Children, more than half a million children in Mosul are at risk of dying, while the United Nations has warned that there are 1.5 million people in danger in the city, nearly half of them are children. Samina Gul, the regional Director of War Child, said: “The boys and girls we support can face a range of problems, from long-term psychological trauma, sexual assault, recruitment to militias and disruption to education. War Child will be dealing with thousands of children fleeing the fighting in Mosul. It is crucial the international community therefore provides the necessary support to ensure these children are protected from harm.”
War after war and massacres after massacres and bloodshed are increasing in Muslim countries, sweeping through cities and villages. After Yemen and Fallujah, Aleppo and other areas, now the people of Mosul are killed and displaced and their homes are destroyed over their heads, and its children fall victim to the ambitions of America and its colonial interests who uses its aircrafts and its agents to fulfill its interests under the flimsy pretext of the elimination of ISIS. However, it is no secret to anyone with sight that America does not care about the blood of the innocent in Mosul, nor in other Muslim countries, nor is it concerned in ending their suffering and oppression that befell them when the city came under the control of ISIS two years ago. However it is only interested in achieving its interests, especially now that the presidential elections are at the door step, and the president and his party are looking for an achievement after they failed to achieve any success in Ash-Sham. Furthermore, it continues working to implement its fatal plan to divide Iraq on a sectarian basis.
They (the Muslims in Mosul) have also fallen victim to armed organizations and sectarian militias belonging to the West. The media reported the news of massacres committed by ISIS against civilians and of intimidation of the population and of using them as human shields. The spokeswoman for the UN Office for Human Rights, said on Friday, 21/10/2016, "ISIS fighters led 550 families out of the villages around the Iraqi city of Mosul and held them near their sites in the city, probably to be used as human shields" (Sky News Arabia). On the other hand, video releases showed the militia and Iraqi soldiers torturing children in Mosul and beating them severely during their interrogation.
It is strange that the terrorism of "terrorist" organizations is visible, while the "terrorism" of America and Russia is overlooked! Isn’t what America has done in Iraq since 2003, and the massacres it committed in Afghanistan, Vietnam, Syria and other areas, and what it is now perpetrating in Mosul, the terror itself?! Isn’t what Russia is committing of brutal bombings on Syria, particularly Aleppo, with the consent of America, terrorism… indeed extending beyond terrorism?!
O Muslim Armies:
The Earth is about to be split apart and the sky is about to split and the mountains are about to collapse from the horror of what befell your brothers and sisters in Syria and Iraq, why won’t you wake up?! Muslims are killed in front of you with your knowledge, yet you do not lift a finger?! Do you obey the orders of your criminal rulers, and participate in killing of your brothers and in implementation of America’s plans, and you do not respond to the call of your Lord?
﴿وَإِنِ اسْتَنصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ﴾
“If they seek your help for the religion then you must help them” [Al-Anfal: 72]
Where are the brave men who say, "By Allah, no one terrorizes Muslim children while we are alive!” It is better for you to mobilize and help your vulnerable brothers and sisters and topple the oppressors’ thrones who made you as tools to implement America’s plans, and to establish the second righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood on its ruins; and by that you will gain the glory in this world and the Hereafter.
﴿مَا لَكُمْ لَا تُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّـهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَـٰذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ وَلِيًّا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ نَصِيرًا * الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّـهِ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ الطَّاغُوتِ فَقَاتِلُوا أَوْلِيَاءَ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّ كَيْدَ الشَّيْطَانِ كَانَ ضَعِيفًا﴾
“And what is [the matter] with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and [for] the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, "Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper?" Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak.” [an-Nisa’: 75-76]
