O Muslims in Syria: The real battle is with the colonial West

The International Community does not account Bashar Assad for his crimes, as long as those he kills are Muslims

On Sunday 23/12/2012 Lakhdar Brahimi arrived at Beirut airport, from Cairo, in a visit unannounced for security reasons. The media was not even allowed to hint about his mission. He travelled from Beirut to Damascus by land with complete confidentiality; where he was received by Faisal al-Miqdad, who would have accompanied him to the Sheraton Hotel to meet with the butcher Bashar Assad on Monday 24/12/2012, as reported by the media. It is noteworthy that Brahimi had threatened to abandon his mission if he was not received by the Ripper – after he had waited a long time without getting an answer.

As to the purpose of the Brahimi visit, the French newspaper Le Figaro mentioned that he wanted to convey to President Bashar al-Assad American-Russian proposals that stipulate the formation of a transitional government composed of ministers acceptable to the two conflicting parties in Syria. The condition is that Bashar keeps power until 2014, so as to complete his presidential term, but without having the right to run for the next presidential election. This is alongside discussing Assad’s departure as part of this plan.

It is worth mentioning that two criminal actions were committed by the damned regime during this visit. The first is the horrific massacres committed by the butcher Bashar – launching airstrikes on queues of vulnerable civilian men, women and children lined up in front of a bakery in Halfaya in Hama. As for the second, it was the appearance of the unfortunate Syrian Information Minister Imran Zou’bi at a news conference attended by the loyal media to issue lies and deny facts. He looked like a criminal – unstable and egotistical like his boss.

Through these two actions, the murderer Bashar wanted to send a political message to say he is strong and able to kill his people. Therefore his conditions must be listened to. The Minister of Information came to complete the scenario by denying the political reality on the ground, disregarding the views of everyone, and lying to them by saying he did not know of Brahimi’s visit to Damascus, nor of his mission.

O Patient Muslims in Syria do not be alarmed by the crimes of the regime and its murderous boss. For he is at his most weakest politically, where he has failed to get himself out of his predicament in spite of all the crimes he committed against you. America and Russia have realised that he cannot remain in power; and Iran has failed to save him. Everybody has come to speak about his departure – but on what condition? The butcher Bashar Assad has no better way than to kill Muslims to improve his situation, and the international community does not account him for his crimes as long as those whom he kills are Muslims. The clause of “securing a safe exit for him” has been included in the bargaining communications with the states that can secure this for him.

O Muslims in Al-Sham of goodness whatever takes place on the ground, which is sponsored by the international community, is not to your advantage. For it works to secure the life of the butcher Bashar and all of his gang that decimated crops and cattle. America is working on the transition of power to its clients, whether they are from the current Syrian criminal regime or the opposition coalition. It also works to enact a secular constitution that distances Islam from authority, and to send international peacekeepers to manage military action against Muslim rebels who declared that their project for new Syria is the Khilafah State. In summary, America has been working hard to bring a puppet ruler loyal to it as an alternative to the butcher Bashar Assad; so what are you going to do? Would anybody that possessed a grain of deen proceed with those (conspirators) in their plan? Can you imagine that there is anybody amongst you that accepts to conspire against Islam and Muslims?

O Muslims and officers who are still in service the real battle is with this disbelieving colonial West. The assassin Bashar is only one of its tools. This wicked colonial West uses all of its tools – the rulers in Muslim countries; all of their financial ability to purchase loyalties; and media capability to dress the truth with falsehood, and to decorate and propagate disbelief, such as the call to a secular democratic civil state that distances deen from life and governance.

We turn to the sincere officers if you still have some deen and a grain of feeling for the suffering of your people due to their inability to stop the carnage, then you are still the power that can put an end to all of these tragedies, and hold on the reins of the country, and eliminate this regime that has barricaded itself with you.

You have to know that if you did not do this then you will have a great danger with your Lord. However, if you did it, then by Allah, the Almighty it will be the glory of dunya and akhira for you and your Ummah. Here is Hizb ut-Tahrir, extending its hand to every sincere army officer in the army to join the other sincere officers already with it to form a powerful force capable to make the radical change that pleases Allah, subhanahu wata’ala by establishing the rightly guided Khilafah whose time has come. Allah, the Almighty said:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَا لَكُمْ إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمُ انْفِرُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ اثَّاقَلْتُمْ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ ۚ أَرَضِيتُمْ بِالْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا مِنَ الْآخِرَةِ ۚ فَمَا مَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا فِي الْآخِرَةِ إِلَّا قَلِيلٌ

إِلَّا تَنْفِرُوا يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ وَلَا تَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئًا ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

إِلَّا تَنْصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللَّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لَا تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَنَا ۖ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا السُّفْلَىٰ ۗ وَكَلِمَةُ اللَّهِ هِيَ الْعُلْيَا ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

“O you who believe! what is the matter with you that when you are told, ‘Go out and fight in the way of Allah,’ you sink down heavily to the earth? Are you happier with this world than the Next World? Yet the enjoyment of this world is very small compared to that of the Next World. If you do not go out to fight, He will punish you with a painful punishment and substitute another people in your place. You will not harm Him in any way. Allah has power over all things. If you do not help him, Allah did help him when the kuffar drove him out and there were two of them in the Cave.* He said to his companion, ‘Do not be despondent, Allah is with us.’ Then Allah sent down His serenity upon him and reinforced him with troops you could not see. He made the word of the kuffar undermost. It is the word of Allah which is uppermost. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise.”
