On December 26th, the media reported that Turkey’s First Lady, Emine Erdoğan, wife of President Erdoğan sent a letter to the wives of the world leaders, calling them to mobilize the international community to do more to protect the Muslim women and children of Syria. She wrote, “We are in a stage where we must do more than to just cry for Syria. I invite women of the world to take action for Syrian women and children who are stranded to death without food, water and medical aid…Children, women and civilians were slaughtered in the conflicts…Our hearts can’t take this pain anymore…I propound the humanitarian plight in Syria to your conscience.”
Therefore, we say to Emine Erdogan! Have you no shame to write such a letter when your husband sat idly by, watching the slaughter of your brothers and sisters for 6 years in this neighbouring land, while presiding over the seventh largest army in the world – an army whose planes were sent without hesitation to extinguish the fires in the Jewish entity, but sent to start fires and to kill Muslims in Syria? Do you not think your emotional words would be better directed at your President who for the sake of pleasing his Western colonial masters, divided and distracted the fighters into side-show battles in his Euphrates Shield Operation, removing them from the struggle for Aleppo, allowing the bloodbath to unfold, and betraying this Islamic revolution and the sacrifices of the martyrs? You talk about propounding the humanitarian plight in Syria to the conscience of humanity. But what do you say about the conscience of your President who opened Turkey’s airbases to the colonialists to bomb Muslims in Northern Syria, and signed treacherous agreement after agreement, and who struck deals, and shared intelligence with the Shaytan Russian regime - co-perpetrator of this butchery - to derail this Islamic revolution and keep the murderous Syrian regime in power? Indeed, with regards to the fall of Aleppo, the world is well-aware of Putin’s words, "What is happening is exactly what we agreed on. We agreed on them with the president of Turkey during his visit to St. Petersburg."
O Emine Erdogan! What do you hope to achieve with this letter to the ‘wives of the world leaders’ whose husbands and governments watched on for six long years while hundreds of thousands of innocent women, children and babies were slaughtered without lifting a finger to defend them, while others directly participated in this genocide? After all this, do you really believe that the Western governments, the UN, and the international community have an ounce of genuine concern for the sanctity of Muslim blood, when they also heartlessly stood idly back and watched the massacres against Muslims in Palestine, Myanmar, Kashmir, Central Africa and elsewhere unfold without any response?!!
O Emine Erdogan! If you are true to your words that your heart can’t take this pain anymore, then demand of your husband to join hands with this Ummah and fulfil his Islamic obligation of ending his unholy alliance with the western imperial powers, and immediately mobilise his army, of which he is so proud, to defend the Muslims of Syria and liberate them from this butcher Assad and support them and this Ummah in realising the noble goal of re-establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) based upon the method of the Prophethood, the guardian of the Muslims and its shield, which will herald a new era of security, dignity and prosperity for this Ummah. Allah (swt) says,
﴿وَمَا لَكُمْ لاَ تُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاء وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَـذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ وَلِيًّا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ نَصِيرًا﴾
“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.” [4: 75]
