Pretending to be Free, Doesn’t Make You Free

President of Iran Hassan Rouhani says that Iran will not surrender to US pressure and will never abandon its goals even if it is attacked. (Aljazeera)


President Rouhani’s statement is no different from the statements of many of his current and previous contemporaries and he is as much a puppet as all of them. What he fails to see is that the suffering they cause to their people eventually falls on them as well. Examples of Iraq and Libya are not as old as to be forgotten, or Mr Rouhani dreams of a different ending while choosing the same path. The story of these puppets is that every fool thinks that he is smarter than the previous one.

Iran portrays itself as a powerful state that is strong enough to take a stand in front of the USA, while it has actually been working in the US interest by playing its role in Syria to maintain the tyrannical regime of Bashar Al-Assad. For years, Iran has been working for the interest of the USA under the guise of resistance. It has played its dirty role in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. If the agreement with the Obama Administration was to facilitate Iran to perform actively for US interests, then Trump’s newly adopted policy is a show of power. Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Iran have played very important roles for suppressing the Syrian revolution and how the USA deals with these regimes is like “training its dragons’’. Any idea of an Islamic state is like a death sentence for the USA and its allies and although they work hand in hand to make it difficult to exist, they have their own power struggles and material greed that puts them against each other and this is the time the West plays the card of a war threat from Muslim countries and hypocrite puppets use the card of “oh we are being targeted for standing up or playing tough”. What they don’t understand is that they are playing with the fire which certainly will lead them to the mother of all fires (hell).

As Iran and Turkey play roles of rebels, Saudi Arabia has long forgotten to even pretend to resist. This is high time that the Muslim Ummah should recognize these actors of menace and demand they stop representing Muslim thoughts and emotions. Muslims should refuse to be fooled by these false leaders, who when needed, don’t feel shy to use Islam as an excuse. Islam is not a matter of “Choice”; in fact, it is an obligation to be accepted, applied and expanded as a complete system. Standing up against the Kuffar is not when they act against your personal interest, but to defend that single child of Syria dying of hunger and whose home has been destroyed and parents butchered. Standing up is to fight for your neighbour when you see the USA raiding your brother country. Standing up is to move the forces for the liberation of Al Aqsa.  We as Muslims should be ready to prevent any further invasion of Muslim lands and get back the ones snatched from us but this is only possible if we have the Shield of Khilafah (Caliphate) to protect and guide us. Khilafah State will crush the greed-based interest of US for the Middle Eastern oil. It will have complete control over Strait of Hormuz and will not allow any foreign warship in it.
