We have followed the events of the Gaza Strip and the painful events that took place following the movement of “We Want to Live” and the suppression of the authority of Hamas and its aggression against the unarmed people who participated in the protests…
In the face of these developments, we emphasize the following:
First: Exploiting the suffering and sacrifices of the people and hurling them into factional rivalries is a crime that these factions are committing against the people of Palestine, and by this crime they contribute in serving the occupation and serving of its projects.
Second: The attack by the Hamas security authorities on unarmed people is a crime and a sin, and it is the exact crime committed by the security services in the West Bank.
Thirdly: The factional tensions and the rivalry between the movements have distracted people from the correct and radical solution to the issue of Palestine and enabled our enemies and their tools in the puppet regimes to manipulate these movements to serve their interests. This obligates the people of Palestine and those sincere of these movements to embrace the strong rope of Allah (swt); which is the way for their salvation, their unity and the liberation of their sanctities.
Fourth: The issue of Palestine is the issue of an occupied land and its solution is to liberate it, and the way to liberate it is one: the mobilization of armies to eradicate the Jewish entity from its roots.
Fifth: We affirm that all Western projects and international resolutions, the Arab and Western initiatives, the deal of the century and the two-state solution, are a colonial conspiracy and an entrenchment of the occupation, which must be rejected together with all those who advocate it. And must also reject the existing regimes in the Islamic countries that are working to implement the colonial agendas, most notably the Egyptian regime, the Jordanian regime and the Saudi regime. This trinity is a triad of treason and conspiracy against the Ummah, and they are the true protectors of the Jewish entity.
Sixth: The issue of Palestine must be returned to its doctrinal dimension and to the Islamic Ummah, and this is what is required by the Shari’ah ruling. The West and its agents have embraced the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) with care and imposed it on the people of Palestine as their sole representative, in order to pass the treacherous peace process, which at the top of its priorities is the stabilization of the Jewish entity in the Blessed Land.
Seventh: The movement of people to remove the injustices that befall them is a legitimate duty, and the greatest injustice that befalls the people is the absence of the rule of Islam, since the absence of Islam from the governance is the cause of misery, division and hardship of living … It is not right that people mobilize for a living only… but their movement must be for the support of Islam and the establishment of the Deen by which they live a good life … The movement of the people of Palestine specifically, including the people of Gaza Strip, must be in order to seek the victory of the Islamic Ummah and its armies for establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) and liberating the Blessed Land.
O People in the Blessed Land … O Brothers in the Movements and Factions:
The Western countries, along with the traitorous Arab states, have dressed the PLO with betrayal and made it recognize the Jewish entity and its right to live in peace on the Blessed Land. If the movements and factions in Palestine do not wake up from their heedlessness, cut off their ties to the Arab states, declare their rejection of Western projects, arbitrate Islam, bring the issue (of Palestine) back to the Islamic Ummah, which is the owner of the issue, and seek the victory of the Ummah and its armies for the establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) and liberation of Jerusalem (Bayt al-Maqdis) as the sincere leaders did before … We say that if they do not wake up and do this, the Arab countries and the Western countries behind them will dress them with betrayal as they dressed PLO before… and then Allah will make them taste the bad consequence of what they committed; disgrace in this world and painful torment in the Hereafter …
This is our advice to all the factions … Fatah, Hamas, Jihad and the rest of the factions. Your murder is the treacherous Arab countries, so be careful not to fall into their trap. Embrace each other, for the brotherhood of Islam gathers you … be in the ranks of the Islamic Ummah and its Deen, and resort to Allah Al-Qawwei, the Powerful, Al-Aziz, the Exalted in Might, the subjugator over His servants, the One whose in His Hand alone is victory, for He (swt) is alone who is competent of supporting you; so be truthful to Allah He will be truthful to you and contemplate the words of Allah (swt) well: إِنْ يَنْصُرْكُمُ اللَّهُ فَلَا غَالِبَ لَكُمْ وَإِنْ يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَنْصُرُكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ “If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely” [Al-i-Imran: 160]
If you contemplate these words of Allah, understand them and work upon them, you will be guided to the path of your salvation in this world and the Hereafter, and this is what we aspire to. If you turn away, Allah will turn away from you… And there is no power except in Allah… and indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.
