So Heed the Lesson! Foil their Work by Unifying behind an Aware Political Leadership that will restore your Honour, Allah Willing
At dawn on 1/1/2017, a Security Council Resolution was passed: “It was unanimously agreed on the decision of the ceasefire agreement in Syria brokered by Russia and Turkey. The Security Council’s decision called for speed in the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the inhabitants of the areas in need …” (BBC Arabic at dawn of 1/1/2017). “The resolution, which bears the number 2336, confirmed that the Security Council took note of the Russian-Turkish document without adopting it, and it pointed out that it supports Moscow and Ankara’s efforts to end the violence in Syria and return to the political process to resolve the crisis…” (AlJazeera, 23:24 Mecca time, 31/12/2016). Thus the Security Council welcomed the decision of the ceasefire agreement in Syria, which was negotiated by agents of America in the Syrian crisis: Russia, Turkey and Iran, and factions that participated in the negotiations in Ankara. This welcome by the Security Council is the result of the betrayal and abandonment deal, that Erdogan’s regime carries its sin by pushing the factions to withdraw from Aleppo and surrendered it to the tyrant’s regime, in the humiliating deal concluded by Erdogan with Putin in St. Petersburg in August 2016, which led today to a new tragic agreement consisting of three parts: cease fire, monitoring of violations, and negotiations in Astana 23/1/2017 based on the Geneva I statement.
These treacherous stages have passed on three fronts until this agreement had been reached: America assigned Iran the role in the first phase and to its party and supporters, but they failed and the regime was on the verge of collapse. In the second phase, America assigned the role to criminal Russia, which used all the brutal weapons however, it did not succeed in eliminating the determined resistance. The finale came with Turkey’s entrance to the field, because its ruler controls the many factions of the north. He followed the evil path to the end, and ignited the front of the “shield of the Euphrates”, and he pulled out many fighters for it, before ordering the remaining factions linked to him to withdraw from Aleppo in a catastrophe that did not occur in a Muslim country before; i.e. a forced immigration of people from their homes, and by whom? By the one who chanted repeatedly slogans of red lines and more red ones, and then Aleppo was surrendered in a scandalous and exposed process, and Erdogan and his cronies and factions that responded to him will all bear its sin. The factions then negotiated the loss of their country and complied with its enemies, not in the darkness of the night, but in broad daylight, and they forgot or pretended to forget the blood that was shed and the sanctities that were violated, and the abodes that were ruined – its people, trees, and rocks. They forget or pretended to forget their deception to the people to liberate them from the regime and its cronies and from its oppression and criminality.
It is one of the gravest afflictions that Erdogan’s regime sits at the same table with Putin, in a humiliating and disgraceful sell-out deal, the sale of Aleppo and the people of Aleppo and what will come after Aleppo, and he treats it as victory and congratulates Putin for it! It is one of the gravest afflictions that Iran adds to the crimes of Russia, and double its savagery and brutality, and competes with Russia in the massacres and death tolls! It is one of the gravest afflictions to hand over Aleppo to the tyrant’s regime, according to the Geneva decision that those factions, which sold their Deen cheaply, must share the miserable governance with the regime’s cronies, and undo all their hard work, after almost eliminating the regime! It is a one of the gravest afflictions that rulers in Muslim countries race to welcome the deadly and ominous negotiations in Astana, and Geneva and the linked deals to them, instead of supporting the people of Ash-Sham; but how can this happen when they are tightly bonded to the bond of treason… May Allah destroy them, how they are deluded!
Dear people in Ash-Sham: Aleppo’s snow has melted; the sins of the agent rulers and factions, and it became clear to all who have sight, even to the visionary who lost sight, no blur remains in the eyes, but it is as clear as daylight for all who can see … You were deceived by the rulers, especially the neighbours, in particular Erdogan of Turkey, and especially those factions that handed over Aleppo and other than Aleppo in response to the money of those rogue traitors… O people of Ash-Sham you have been bitten from the first truce signed by the factions, and from the first forced migration campaign that they carry its sin, you were bitten by Erdogan from the first red line (promise) he broke, and from the first promise that Hama will not be repeated twice, then his promise vanished. The believer is not bitten from the same hole twice, so how is it when you have been repeatedly bitten by the neighbouring rulers and beyond? How is it when you have been bitten from many factions, who were fighting each other before your eyes instead of fighting the one they came out to fight, and call for unity but do not unite, and claim to renounce division but they are deeply divided, and revile the people of dirty money but think that taking that money is a virtue!
These factions will not protect any land unless they realize the disease and then treat it with the cure, and the cure is their unity, not division. But the unity is not all talk that is not followed by actions, and this will not be unless the factions unite behind a sincere political leadership on the basis of Islam, recitation this noble verse is not enough: ﴿وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا﴾ “And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided” [Al-i-Imran: 103]. But thinking and reflection upon it is necessary: ﴿أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآن﴾ “Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an” [Muhammad: 24].
What ensures unity is holding on to the rope of Allah (swt), so the factions must have honest political leadership that adheres to the rope of Allah (swt), leading them to the one straight line, the great line of Islam … Thus eliminating division, and straightening the rows. But if they unite behind the leadership that does not fear Allah, and adhere to rulers who do not fear Allah, the disease will remain and intensify, and the division will remain and spread, and then they will not stop any tyrant, and will not deter any criminal, as we have seen in Aleppo and other than Aleppo, and they will be the ladder used by the agent rulers, and pave the way for deadly agreements, even though they showed their unity, as we saw in the Ankara agreements, their unity meant “the signing of the united factions”.
Our ancestors have been subjected to some of this, after abandoning the truth they carried, they have suffered as a result… They separated from the truth which was brought by the Messenger of Allah (saw), at the time of the Crusaders, they lost Al-Quds the place of Isra’ and Mi’raj of the Prophet (saw) … and they separated from the truth at the time of the Tartars and lost the capital of the Khilafah, Baghdad … and they divided and differed in the early years of the last century, and the Khilafah was lost and Al-Quds was lost again… However in the first and second times they knew the disease and took the cure and returned a great nation and opened Constantinople and it became the city of Islam, and they approached the abode of the tyrant Putin, and knocked on the gates of Europe, east and west, from the Battle of Tours at the gates of France, to the gates of Vienna … It is an attainable matter to return as strong and victorious with the same cure, and expel the Kaffir colonialists and their adherents from Syria and other lands of Islam, and we regain Al-Quds, and eliminate the usurper Jewish entity of the Blessed Land, and spread the good not only in the lands of Islam, but also in the surrounding areas, and achieve the promise of Allah of ruling and empowerment.
O Muslims, O our people in Ash-Sham, to all of the revolutionaries: We offer you this cure and address you with it, there is no excuse or justification left, we are overwhelmed with misfortunes that surround us, should we not learn the lesson?!
﴿أَوَلَا يَرَوْنَ أَنَّهُمْ يُفْتَنُونَ فِي كُلِّ عَامٍ مَرَّةً أَوْ مَرَّتَيْنِ ثُمَّ لَا يَتُوبُونَ وَلَا هُمْ يَذَّكَّرُونَ﴾
“Do they not see that they are tried every year once or twice but then they do not repent nor do they remember?” [At-Tawba: 126]
We address you individually and in groups, and the people of power and protection of armies and factions … We address you and call you to unite behind the sincere political leadership, to support it, and strengthen it by establishing the rule of Islam, the Islamic state, the righteous Khilafah … This is the truth that the guiding party that does not lie to its people call you to, Hizb ut Tahrir, which is known to you, it is working with you and among you, you have seen that it is truthful to you and advises you … Hizb ut Tahrir calls you, our calamities have intensified, and the breach has widened. We can extinguish its flame so that matters become cool and peaceful, and close the breach, and our safety returns… So reach out with your supporting hands to us as ours are stretched out for you, we can strengthen each other, and win in both realms, and that is the greatest success. …

“Indeed in that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present [in mind]” [Qaf: 37].
