Hizb ut Tahrir in the blessed land of Palestine announces the cancellation of the march which was scheduled for Saturday afternoon from Al-Bireh Al-Kabir Mosque to Al-Manara roundabout, under the slogan “Khilafah returns glory to the Ummah and Al-Quds its status” on the occasion of the 97th anniversary of the destruction of the Islamic Khilafah (Caliphate) State.
The party said that the cancellation was based on the barbaric and arbitrary measures taken by the Palestinian Authority (PA) today to suppress and prevent the launching of the march, which began early in the morning. The checkpoints were erected at the main and sub entrances of the city of Ramallah and at the exits of the villages of Ramallah and the main cities in the West Bank, such as Hebron, Bethlehem, Qalqilya and Jenin. It also erected checkpoints in the town of Al-Ubaidiya and Wadi al-Nar, separating southern West Bank from Ramallah, and erected several checkpoints inside the city of Hebron, Jenin, Ramallah and Al-Bireh, and stopped incoming cars to search for participants in the march, causing severe traffic crises and hindering people’s interests and needs, without taking into account the young and old, in addition to the military and masked crowds who spread terror in the center of the city of Ramallah and turned the perimeter of the mosque and the Al-Manarah roundabout to military barracks.
Accordingly, the Hizb decided to cancel the march scheduled today and emphasizes the following:
1- The Palestinian Authority reached a great amount in its hostility to Islam and Muslims, and resolved its order with the entity of Jews and enemies of Islam in seeking to prevent the rise of the voice of Islam and the call to the armies from the captive Palestine crying for her liberation entirely from occupation.
2- The PA’s dependence on the enemies of Islam made them disrespect the rights of the people; they no longer care for young or old, or a sheikh or a woman, which foreshadows a terrible consequence like the consequence of the people of ‘Aad and Thamoud and Gaddafi, Mubarak and Ibn Ali, so let the PA await the wrath of the Ummah and honorable people of Palestine, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: «إِنَّ اللهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ يُمْلِي لِلظَّالِمِ، فَإِذَا أَخَذَهُ لَمْ يُفْلِتْهُ، ثُمَّ قَرَأَ ﴿وَكَذَلِكَ أَخْذُ رَبِّكَ، إِذَا أَخَذَ الْقُرَى وَهِيَ ظَالِمَةٌ إِنَّ أَخْذَهُ أَلِيمٌ شَدِيدٌ﴾» “Verily, Allah Almighty will give respite to the oppressor until he seizes him and he cannot escape.” Then the Prophet ﷺ recited the verse, “Such is the seizure of your Lord when he takes hold of the cities while they are committing oppression. Verily, his seizure is painful and severe.”” [11:102]
3- Despite the legality of the march, the PA, with following the orders of its masters, has trampled on its law with the feet and boots of its security services, so let the authority know that we will not hesitate to put our feet before their feet in trampling on its law.
4- Finally, let the PA know that we are never silent in humiliation, and do not accept the violation of our right and duty to carry the call (Da’wah), and the Ummah’s covenant will remain with us as men who fear no one for the sake of Allah (swt), and that tomorrow is near.
وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ
“And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!”
