On the evening of Monday, March 6, 2023, the Minister of National Defense, Imad Mameesh, welcomed at the Ministry’s headquarters, Joey Hood, the American ambassador, as part of a visit on the occasion of his recent appointment as head of his country’s embassy in Tunisia.
According to the ministry’s statement, the Minister of National Defense welcomed the “guest” and congratulated him on the confidence he received from his country’s authorities to appoint him at the head of the American diplomatic mission in our country, wishing him success in his mission, reviewing, in this occasion, the historical relations between the “two friendly countries”, appreciating the level of cooperation between the two sides, calling for further development for the benefit of both parties, within the framework of trust and mutual respect!
On the other hand, the Minister of Interior, Tawfiq Sharaf El-Din, welcomed on March 14, 2023 at the Ministry’s headquarters, this ambassador and his accompanying delegation, reviewing in turn the distinguished relations and partnership between the two countries and ways to support them in the field of bilateral cooperation and axes of common interest, according to a statement by the Ministry of Interior. He celebrated the US ambassador’s appreciation of the level of professionalism of the security units in applying the law while respecting rights and freedoms, and the professionalism they show when dealing with gatherings, although the photos of the meeting themselves show that the minister was in a position closer to investigation than to praise and appreciation.
And we, in the Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Tunisia, are interested in addressing the wise people of this country, and pointing out the following matters, in the hope that a sober ear will understand them and find their echo among the sincere ones who are jealous of this hijacked country:
First: Joey Hood is not just a diplomat who came to improve the image of his country, but rather he is an experienced politician who spent most of his life in the Middle East, until he held the position of Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, which is the last position he held before traveling to Tunisia, this is without forgetting that he was the one who led a high-ranking delegation when meeting the president at the Carthage Palace a few days after the July 25 track was announced. He participated in drafting guidelines for the Biden administration in Iraq as a former ambassador to Washington in this country, and he is known for his positions in support of the US military presence in Iraq and Syria and for his diplomatic efforts seeking to normalize relations with the Jewish entity.
Second: The head of Kufr is America, and it is one of the greatest enemies of the Islamic ummah, and its hands are dripping with the blood of Muslims everywhere, and its efforts are focused globally on fighting Islam and Muslims under the cover of “fighting terrorism”, and to make that the focus of armies in Muslim countries, to weaken and exhaust them and lose their compass and divert them from supporting their civilizational project in a way that raises the flag of Islam and Muslims and rages the colonial Kuffar.
Therefore, America is more serious than ever before in reformulating the region according to its colonial vision competing with Europe over its areas of influence, which explains the successive visits of the commander of United States Africa Command, General Michael Langley, to the countries of North Africa, and his supervision earlier this month of efforts to unify the military establishment in Libya. Accordingly, America, which bestows upon us from time to time with its military aid, will not stop its policy of carrots and sticks with Tunisia until it raises the American flag on a piece of its land, as a military base for its forces, as a starting point towards beloved Algeria (the country of a million martyrs), Allah forbid.
Third: The attempt to co-opt and penetrate the military institutions in Islamic countries, and to aggravate the economic situation in them through the poisonous recipes of the International Monetary Fund, is an American policy known to everyone with insight. Therefore, the selection of ministries that are supposed to be sovereign as a starting point for the new ambassador’s visits absolves America of accountability for all charges of participating in conspiracy against state security, and blows up all presidential speeches that talks about sovereignty, and puts it in the category of political bidding with opponents. There is no evidence for that than declaring a “war of liberation” or “wild war” inside the country, then opening the doors of the ministries of sovereignty to the enemies of the nation abroad, with the logic: A lion is upon me, and wars are an ostrich.
Fourth: The presidency, the government, and the new parliament are all required to reveal the content of the military agreement that was signed with America on September 30, 2020, to last for ten years, and not to cover up this crime that took place during the reign of Kais Saied by talking about the rulers of the “black decade,” so that the people do not wake up to the darkest decade.
In conclusion, we remind everyone in this country, rulers and ruled, that the military and security agreements and arrangements concluded with the Kufr countries, led by America, are high treason and forbidden by Sharia, and that the perpetrator deserves severe punishment in this world, shame and torment in the Hereafter, because it means the control of the Kuffar over the Muslims and their countries,and that the soon-to-be-established Khilafah (Caliphate), inshallah, is the only one capable of cutting off the hands extending to Islamic countries, including Tunisia.
Allah (swt) says:
[وَلَن يَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَبِيلاً]
“And Allah will never grant the disbelievers a way over the believers.” [An-Nisa 4:141]
