Hizb-ut-Tahrir Egypt has emphasised that America utilises the Copts as a pretext to interfere in the affairs of Islamic lands to apply pressure upon their governments and the public opinion to exploit this as political blackmail.
The Hizb added in the communiqué that it distributed amongst those protesting at the American Embassy at the time of Asr today, that America uses the Christians generally amongst others whom they have named minorities living in the Islamic world as fuel that they ignite to create pretexts to interfere politically and military with the argument that they are protecting minorities and persecution.
They emphasised that the issue of the Copts in America and the defaming of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم is primarily a political issue. The communiqué emphasised strongly that it is necessary to stand in the way of American and other colonialist states that are waging war against Islam adding that this requires a state that rules by Islam and implements the Shar’a of Allah. They demanded the closure of the American Embassy in Cairo and to cut all treaties and relations with her in addition to warning the Ahlu-dh-Dhimmah (i.e. Christians) from falling into the trap of American exploitation.
