The Military Justice Holds Hizb ut Tahrir Accountable for a Statement Denying Normalization with the Jewish entity, but is Silent about the Crime of Normalization?!

For the third time, the Military Investigative Judge called on officials of Hizb ut Tahrir in Tunisia on Tuesday, 18th July 2017, to interrogate them regarding the press release issued by Hizb ut Tahrir / Tunisia on 27/05/2016 entitled: “The Zionists Kill the Muslims in Palestine and Judaize Masjid Al-Aqsa Whilst the “Revolutionary” government in Tunisia is Placing Officers and Soldiers at their Disposal for their Protection and Facilitation of “Their Pilgrimage” every year?”

So, what is the crime committed by Hizb ut Tahrir for the military justice to interrogate it?

Because Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah of Tunisia issued a press release denouncing the actions of the “Unity” government, which provided permission for 50 people holding passports of the criminal Jewish entity to desecrate the land of Tunisia. They were headed by Rafael Cohen, a Rabbi from the extreme Jewish Shas Party who supported the murderer Sharon in the killing of our brothers and children in captive Palestine.

Not only did the government (at the time) authorize the Jewish terrorists to enter Tunisia, but sent ministers to receive them with honor and welcoming! And lured the security forces and the army and utilized them as guards protecting the safety of the Jewish terrorists who slaughter our brothers in Palestine daily, lay siege to Masjid Al-Aqsa, wanting to demolish it and prevent many of the Muslims of Palestine from performing their prayer there.

Did not the government by making that permission has made Tunisia permissible to the terrorist enemy under the pretext of “pilgrimage” to the El Ghriba synagogue in Djerba in May 2016?! Did not the government then turn an extreme insult to the security forces and the army by utilizing them to guard their enemy! Is not this a demoralization of the soldiers and officers?! Is not the criminal Jewish entity an enemy of the Muslims?! Then, why is the military court prosecuting Hizb ut Tahrir, which exposes the crime, and leaves the criminal and his assistants in his injustice?!

The military justice raises the issue of Hizb ut Tahrir’s press release more than a year after it was issued. Why? And why now in particular?

Looking at the context of events in these last days we see:

– Trump, the US President, brings together Muslims rulers in Saudi Arabia to lead them into normalization with the Jewish entity publicly, and then he called some of the Arab rulers. So, Sisi of Egypt submissively goes to him offering his services, and the leaders of Saudi Arabia and the Emirates declare that they are ready for normalization with the Jewish entity.

 Members of the US Congress impose on the Tunisian Prime Minister Yousef Al-Shahed and his companions during their recent visit to America, to stop condemning the crimes of the Jewish entity in the future. And previously they imposed on the Constituent Assembly in Tunisia not to criminalize normalization with the Jewish entity in the Constitution.

– The Tunisian Ministry of Culture allows the spiteful Zionist Michel Bougainh to hold a concert at the Carthage Theater.

– Whereas in Palestine, the soldiers of the Jewish entity revel in the areas of Al-Aqsa killing, and then closing the mosque for the first time since the fire in 1969 and preventing performing prayers in it.

Despite all these events, the military justice in Tunisia insists on pursuing the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir and prosecuting them for the press release issued by Hizb ut Tahrir in Tunisia against the visit of 50 soldiers from the Jewish entity who made pilgrimage to Ghriba on the Island of Djerba in 2016. Why?

Why is this frantic pursuit of the regime and its institutions to declare normalization with a Jewish entity in blatant defiance of the feelings of Muslims in Tunisia? Why is the military justice display bravery on the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir to hold them responsible for a press release issued by the party (as a legal person) against the violation of the land of Tunisia by Zionist soldiers?

O Judges in the Military Court:

Who is more right to be accountable, rather to be prosecuted? Who is the criminal suspect? Hizb ut Tahrir, who cries out to Muslim armies to save Palestine and the people of Palestine? Or the one who is silent about the crimes of an enemy entity that kills women and children in Palestine. The enemy who bombarded us in Hammam al-Shat in 1985 and then returned in 2016 to parade in our streets from Tunisia to Sfax to kill the aviation engineer Mohamed Zouari, may Allah have mercy on him, then he goes out unharmed to brag to the world about his crime?!!

O Judges in the Military Court:

Is there not among you a right-minded man?

Palestine burns at the hands of the criminal Jewish entity

Palestine is slaughtered by savage gangs of the Jewish entity

Palestine, the Isra and Maraj, the Blessed Land, the first Qibla, calls Muslim armies for relief…

So, is the one who supports it and denies the crime of normalization and calls the armies to support it is a criminal with a suspicion worthy to be interrogated?!!

Do you hold accountable Hizb ut Tahrir, which denounced the allurement of the security forces and the army, and leave the officials who received the enemies of the nation with welcoming and embrace?

أَفَنَجْعَلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ كَالْمُجْرِمِينَ * مَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ

“Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals?  What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge?”

(Al-Qalam: 36-37)
