America has Declared War upon the World: Spying on Whoever It Wants!

The revelations last week, by former CIA and NSA Consultant Edward Snowden, exposed that America is running a secret program called PRISM to access emails, photographs, telephone calls and text messages. This violation of people’s privacy has drawn a stiff response from America’s friends and foes alike. The European Union’s Justice Commissioner has written to the US Attorney General demanding that he answer seven questions related to the protection of the rights of EU citizens, while the Chinese have expressed outrage over America’s hypocrisy. An article in The China Daily quoted Li Haidon, at the China Foreign Affairs University, as saying: “For months Washington has been accusing China of cyber-espionage but it turns out that the biggest threat to the pursuit of individual freedom and privacy in the US is the unbridled power of the government.

PROTEST IN CHICAGO THIS SATURDAY: Support the people of Syria

Everyone has witnessed the response of the Syrian regime and its allies against the innocent people of Syria for their demand for change. Since the start of the nationwide uprising in mid-March of this year, the brutal crackdown on the people of Syria’s peaceful call for change has intensified leaving thousands of men, women and children buried under the rubble of Syrian war tanks sweeping through the streets, town by town. The Ba’athist dictatorship has ruled Syria for five decades with an iron first and continues to crack the whip on its people in its effort to keep a grip on power.

USA CONFERENCE: Revolution in the Muslim World: From Tyranny to Triumph

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

With the blessings of Allah (swt) Hizb ut-Tahrir America is pleased to announce its Khilafah Conference 2011, entitled ‘Revolution in the Muslim World: From Tyranny to Triumph’. Insha’Allah the conference will be held on Sunday, June 26th 2011.

For the past few months our attention has been transfixed on the events occurring in the Muslim World. From Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Syria people are rising up against the tyranny that has plagued our Ummah for decades. For months now the Muslim Ummah has been coming out on the streets, especially after Jummah salah to account their governments, to call for change and to call for these tyrant rulers to step down.

Hizb ut-Tahrir banned now on “alternative media” as well as print and electronic media

Freedom of Expression exposed as a lie yet again: America orders global closure of active Facebook accounts of Hizb ut-Tahrir and of its members

Upon American direction, Facebook has suspended the accounts of various branches of Hizb ut-Tahrir, of its media offices and of its members, including the pages of the Spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan, Naveed Butt, the Director of the Central Media Office, Hizb ut-Tahrir Tunisia, Hizb ut-Tahrir Palestine and various members in various countries.

The Insignificant Settlement with Danish Newspaper Politiken, the Hateful Criticism and the Fraudulent Cheers

We Muslims should know that the insult towards the Messenger is not resolved through conciliation with media, which reserves “the right” to repeat the insult. On the contrary, it must be resolved through the establishment of the Khilafah-State, which has the capacity to put a final end to the repeated insults to the sanctities of Muslims.

The West’s support of Gaddafi demonstrates the true meaning of capitalist foreign policy

PRESS STATEMENT

The West’s support of Gaddafi demonstrates the true meaning of capitalist foreign policy

The recent release of the Libyan prisoner Abdelbasit Al Megrahi by the Scottish authorities, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Colonel Gaddafi’s coming to power, brings into sharp focus the continued external support enjoyed by dictators like the ruler of Libya. Contrary to the phony celebrations on state controlled TV, for the people of Libya the last forty years have been like a recurring nightmare. They have witnessed forty years of oppressive dictatorship, forty years of external interference from the West and forty years of corruption and mismanagement.

PRESS RELEASE: Hizb ut-Tahrir America

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Press Release

Hizb-ut-Tahrir America was honored to have organized a Khilafah Conference on July 19th in Chicago at the Oak Lawn Hilton. (Photos are at the end of this press release.) The conference was held to commemorate the 88th anniversary of the abolishment of the Khilafah in Istanbul in 1342 H (1924 AC). The theme of the conference was ‘The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam’.

This theme was chosen to reflect two parallel trends in the global arena. On the one hand, Capitalism, as an ideology and system of economy, is experiencing serious problems which have hit the financial backbone of the system. On the other side, the world is also witnessing a steady revival of Islam and especially the call for Islam to be implemented as a way of life to such extent that a prominent commentator in the US, Patrick Buchanan, called the phenomenon “An Idea Whose Time Has Come.”

Thousands attend Hizb ut-Tahrir’s London Conference: “The Struggle for ISLAM and the call for Khilafah”

London, UK, July 26 2009 – Thousands of delegates attended Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain’s national Conference: The Struggle for Islam and the call for Khilafah in London today.

The conference was opened by Dr Abdul Wahid, Chairman of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain’s Executive Committee, who addressed the increasing anti-Islamic propaganda in the West and globally. Using the issue of terrorism and extremism Western governments have embarked on a campaign to prevent the Muslim world establishing an Islamic government, the Caliphate that will free the Muslim world from the terror and hegemony that has been brought upon it by the West. On a daily basis, Muslims are subjected to insults and attacks in the media on their Aqeeda, the hijab, Shariah and Khilafah. He argued that, in this critical time, Muslims needed to hold onto Islamic values living in the West, and resist the attempts to reform Islam, and to support the call for the Islamic Khilafah in the Muslim world – to end decades of oppression, colonisation and dependency.

The Sunday Times should focus on the UK and US governments’ plots against Pakistan

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

London UK, 5th July 2009 – Contrary to claims in today’s Sunday Times [British Islamists plot against Pakistan], it is the British and American governments that are plotting against Pakistan. Their disastrous intervention – in Afghanistan and then in Pakistan – has spread terror and killed many through continuous missile strikes and they have propped up the corrupt and despised Zardari regime in the name of democracy.

Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, “The real ones who ‘plot against Pakistan’ are those who allow its foreign policy to be dictated by the US State Department and the British Foreign Office, those who cede control of Pakistan’s economic resources to multinationals and those who allow Pakistan’s territory to be used by foreign armies for the vicious assault on Afghanistan.”

Sydney demonstration against American War in Pakistan

Sydney, Australia, 22nd May 2009 – Over 2 million civilians have been made refugees, on top of the thousands that have been killed or injured, as a result of the Pakistani Government’s recent assault on the north-western regions of Buner and Swat. The subsequent chaos created inside Pakistan has not stopped the Zardari regime from persisting in facilitating the American agenda in the region. President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani are happy to use the sincere Muslim sons of the Pakistan army to fight other Muslims, in what is the height of treachery.

Criticism of Israel unacceptable to Australian Government

Sydney, Australia, 20th April 2009 – Following in the steps of Barack Obama and the US, Kevin Rudd and the Australian Government has decided to avoid the forthcoming UN conference on racism in Geneva. Stephen Smith, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, said that he was not convinced that the conference would not be a platform for anti-Semitic sentiment.

Obama’s visit to Turkey may be rich in symbolism but offers little change in policy

London, UK, April 5 2009 – US President Barack Obama has arrived in Turkey on a trip aimed at salvaging America‘s ruined reputation in the Muslim world, yet it looks increasingly clear that the visit, though rich in gestures and symbolism, offers no real change from Bush’s failed and destructive policies.

Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said “Obama’s trip is vital to the United States as it seeks Turkey’s help in Iraq and seeks to add tens of thousands of additional troops to support NATO’s failing Afghan campaign.”

Zardari-Gilani are humiliated but the restoration of Judges has not averted the real crisis facing Pakistan – America’s Undeclared War

Zardari-Gilani are humiliated but the restoration of Judges has not averted the real crisis facing Pakistan – America’s Undeclared War

London, UK, March 16 2009 – People woke this morning to the public humiliation of Prime Minister Gilani announcing that he and President Zardari had decided to restore Chief Justice Iftikhar Chauhdry and the other deposed judges. Despite the words of Gilani, everyone knows that the PPP leadership has done its level best to avoid their restoration.

It is ironic that Nawaz Sharif who is today portraying himself as the champion of the Chief Justice is the same man that led a self-imposed war against the Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah who opposed his restoration to power in 1993.

85 years without Khilafah lead to division, chaos, and stagnation. Now, change is in the air

London, UK, March 3rd 2009 – Today marks 85 years since the colonialist agent Mustafa Kamal abolished the Islamic Khilafah state. Since then, the Muslim Ummah has endured division, occupation, economic stagnation and foreign domination. However, thanks to Allah (swt), evidence points to an unstoppable momentum for change and a greater call for the Shariah, Islam, and Khilafah.

Commenting on this important anniversary, Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, “Since 1924, we have ended up divided into more than fifty weak and insignificant states whose rulers have systematically colluded with colonial powers against their own people, as our brothers and sisters have been massacred in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and elsewhere. Without the Khilafah, we are without a shield, exposed to the most vicious colonialist attacks.”

Blears Message to Muslims: Change your values, Ignore Foreign Policy and Obey the State

London UK, 25th February 2009 – In a speech today at the London School of Economics, Communities Secretary Hazel Blears confirmed the government’s latest tactics in its strategy for Muslims to adopt a British version of Islam.

The speech hurriedly followed leaked drafts of a revised counter-terrorism strategy called Contest-2, which clearly indicated the government’s definition of extremism: to support the call for a Caliphate in the Muslim world; to support the Islamic Shariah; to believe that Jihad to fight against invasion and occupation is legitimate; to believe that homosexuality is a sin.

Leaked – UK Government to Compel Muslims to adopt secular liberal values

London UK, 17 February 2009 – Today’s Guardian newspaper report that the UK government is drafting plans that will effectively label core aspects of Islam, shared by all schools of Islamic jurisprudence, as ‘extremist’. These include the belief in the Caliphate and Shariah laws for Muslim lands; Jihad to resist occupation of Muslim land and defend against attacks by invaders; and the ruling of Islam on homosexuality. The government is yet to disclose sanctions for believing in these ideas.

20 Muharram 1430 AH / 16 January 2009 CE

The following is an English translation of a statement issued in Dutch by the Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir in the Netherlands:

In response to the Telegraph and Bosma

Today a lecture was planned which was organized by the Islamic student association Al-Furqan, concerning the situation in Gaza and the ongoing criminal acts of the Jewish state against the children and women there. This lecture would be given by me. However some particular parties were not pleased with it and put all their efforts to stop this lecture. Indeed, they were successful in preventing the planned lecture, and in taking my word away. However they failed in the prevention of the distribution of the message. My message has reached the peoples, and they witnessed that even the word Khilafah strikes deep fear in the hearts of the assassins of women and children and those who support them.

Clinton pledges money for rebuilding Gaza – then pledges weapons for Israel’s continued bombing of Gaza

London, UK, February 4 2009 – For all Obama’s talk of change, Hilary Clinton, unsurprisingly offered no change to US Middle East policy on her first visit to Palestine as US Secretary of State.

At today’s press conference with Israeli president Shimon Peres, she said “the United States has an unwavering commitment to Israel’s security and its right to protect itself”. US support for Israel’s murderous occupation remains a constant in US Middle East policy.

Address to the Muslims in the Western Lands from Sheikh A’ta Abu Rishta

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

All Praise to Allah who said:

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ
“Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them.” [TMQ An-Nur: 55]

And peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم who said: “Whosever dies without a Bay’ah on his neck he shall die the death of Jahilliyah.”

UK government guilty of aiding the preparation and commission of Israeli terrorism

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Press Release
London UK, 11 January 2009 – While the British government has been selling arms used in Israel’s latest terrorist acts, as a cynical face-saving attempt at PR, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has sent emails of quotes made by Foreign Secretary David Miliband to local councils and Muslim community organisations. There have even been suggestions that these be read in mosques, in violation of the government’s own preference to keep politics away from religious centres.

Demonstrations across the world calling on Muslim Armies to defend Gaza

Over many months, the regimes in the Muslim world have been silent over Israel’s siege of Gaza. The Egyptian regime even blocked aid to Gaza and the Saudi regime has appeased the murderous occupiers by promoting a so-called ‘peace process’, which is nothing more than a process to strengthen Israel’s grip on the region. Their appeasement has been repaid by this massacre.
