The American position has announced the decision to punitively strike the Syrian regime after Bashar made use of chemical weapons against civilians in Damascus on 8/21/2013 surprised the countries of the world. Some of these countries took a supportive position, declaring their willingness to join the international coalition that is to direct this strike under the lead of America.
The wave of regional and international media undertook a change of direction, such that the talk about this intervention is the first topic that is making the round. Obama has described the chemical attack as “an important event that raised grave concern”, announced America’s intention to launch a military strike against strategic targets in Syria and opposed the call for military intervention in Syria without a UN mandate. The spokesman of the White House repeated what his president had stated earlier, in that he does not expect the deployment of U.S. troops on the ground in Syria. U.S. Secretary of Defense Hagel told reporters that “the Ministry of Defense is responsible for providing the president with options for each case of emergency.” Pentagon officials said that the 4 destroyers of the U.S. Navy are on standby to carry out any order they are given concerning Syria within hours. The newspaper The Washington Post cited a military official that all destroyers are armed with about 90 winged Tomahawk rockets and that there are American submarines carrying winged missiles in the Mediterranean Sea, but their positions remain confidential. A closed meeting of the leaders of the armies of ten countries was held in Amman to discuss the scenario of directing a military strike, and the Washington Post Newspaper in its issue from 8/27/2013 revealed that the process would depend “in its timing on three factors: the completion of the intelligence report that assesses the extent of the involvement of the Syrian government in the attack of last week, ongoing consultations with the allies and the Congress, and the determination of the justification for the attack under international law.” America announced that the aim of the strike is to punish and discipline Bashar for his use of chemical weapons, but not to bring about a regime change. A senior official in the U.S. State Department said that the chemical attack showed the need for “a comprehensive political solution and lasting peace” to end the crisis in Syria.
In the presence of this crowd of international positions of pro-military strike, and the statements and actions of the American military, and the array of media effort to report on this strike, the Russian position dramatically plunged into humiliation. Moreover Lavrov’s announcement that Russia would not enter into war for anyone, and the Russian announcement of its intention to vacate its military pieces from its naval base in Tartus in the event of the strike. More than 120 Russian nationals were evacuated, and Russia expressed its regrets for the cancellation of a meeting with the U.S. that was scheduled to be held in The Hague on 8/28/2013 in order to prepare the ground for the Geneva 2 Conference. As for Iran, it started rearing, puffing and threatening but quietly without causing noise, and it has to be mentioned that the American and UN political official, the fox Jeffrey Feltman, visited Tehran suggesting a scenario and distribution of roles.
America owns the sole influence in Syria, and its influence there is endangered by the revolution. In vain were all of the political and criminal and brutal tricks to destroy the revolution, America did not even succeed in securing an agent ruler as Bashar’s alternative, not to mention its failure in the production of such an alternative. Now here comes America with another hellish plan to be implemented and carried out by it, no less criminal than the criminality and monstrosity of Bashar in robbing lives. This plan started with the chemical strike executed by Bashar to be used as a justification for military intervention, and to thereby open the door of the political process leading to Geneva 2. A prominent member of the Syrian opposition exposed for the al-Sharq al-Awsat the features of an agreement between the opposition and those allied countries, and said that “the process will not eliminate the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but will bring to the negotiating table Geneva 2 exhaustively” and that “the Syrian president at the end of the negotiations and as a result will step down.” To go even further, he also told al-Sharq al-Awsat that according to sources of the Syrian opposition the American side asked them to offer it a “bank of targets ” to be used for the strike, and that meetings will be held between U.S. experts and members of the military councils to set the assumed goals.
It is likely that in such a meeting they will run through scenarios to eliminate Islamist fighters, the owners of the project to establish the Khilafah state in Syria. Therefore the strike is expected to be limited and calculated, to strike the essential military infrastructure, so that the new Syria is one at peace with Israel. It will lead to the loss of many Muslim lives, as happened in Libya, and as it happens in Afghanistan when masses are killed by U.S. drones bombing civilians under the pretext of hitting the leaders of al-Qaida and the Taliban. America through its military dominance will impose itself as the main administrator of the dialogue, and it will impose its own project of solutions on the opposition and the regime as participants in the dialogue, as it will impose the sending of strong, effective international forces to cooperate with the national army to attack anyone who violates this project.
Further America will impose the preservation of the security services by which Bashar kills the Muslims, because they will guarantee the American grasp of the new regime. Finally America will set up international tribunals to bring to trial some of those known to have killed people, to silence the public and give them a sense of relief, as they did in Kosovo.
Oh Muslims in Syria ash-Sham and other Muslim countries:
America is the head of evil in the world; it is the worst enemy of the Muslims! America is now on the verge of committing massacres in Syria that will not be less than those committed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and you will see that they will assume the mission of mass murder against Muslims from Bashar, and with it will come an international mandate to kill, they will impose a secular constitution and agent rulers upon you. Today the same America is the weakest it has ever been in the region, it is threatened with loss of influence in the region. America is unable to stabilize the political situation through its clients in Egypt and Syria and it has made its bitter experience with the Muslims. Now they claim that they do not want to occupy Syria, just as they did in Iraq and Afghanistan, rather America wants to impose its political agenda so as to achieve its interests without occupation. It is this America that loves to announce its refusal of intervention and fighting, and anyone who demands this is a traitor to his Deen and his Ummah. America came to save its interests and its agent Bashar who they still considered president, and will work to secure a safe exit for him, his family and his aides. It is this America that is an enemy to you so take it for what it is! Unmask its agents with the strongest and clearest of words! All of the murder, torture, displacement, hunger, humiliation and arrest you have suffered. It will not be compensated except by raising the word of Allah on earth. It is this America that has let loose its henchmen on you and it wants to drag the world into the war against you and your Deen, and it will repeat this cycle over and over again.
Not one of you are excused for remaining silent for their intended crime, you are obliged to prohibit it!
Oh Muslims in Syria ash-Sham and other Muslim countries:
Allah’s commands and prohibitions must be the measures of our actions. Allah has enjoined on the Muslims to embrace the Islamic project based on the establishment of a Khilafah state. Look around you, is there any project that brings together the Muslims and unites them apart from this project and that will enable you to stand in the face of the American project?! Is it without Allah that you could overcome the masses of Kufr, no matter how great they are? So be with Allah for He will be with you, and give victory to His Deen for He will give you victory. Hizb ut Tahrir calls you to this great obligation that is most strongly fought by America, the West, the nations of the world and the rulers of the Muslims and the secularists. But Allah is the One who takes care of His affairs, for He سبحانه وتعالى said:
أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ * الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِنْ دِيَارِهِمْ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلَّا أَنْ يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا وَلَيَنْصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ * الَّذِينَ إِنْ مَكَّنَّاهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ وَأَمَرُوا بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْا عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَلِلَّهِ عَاقِبَةُ الْأُمُورِ
“Permission to fight is given to those who are fought against because they have been wronged – truly Allah has the power to come to their support – those who were expelled from their homes without any right, merely for saying, ‘Our Lord is Allah’ if Allah had not driven some people back by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, where Allah’s name is mentioned much, would have been pulled down and destroyed. Allah will certainly help those who help Him – Allah is All-Strong, Almighty”
