The Return of Demonstrations to the Liberated Areas is Persistence on the Revolution and Confirming its Steadfastness

On 7th September 2018, most of the liberated areas witnessed mass demonstrations after Friday prayers, to confirm that the revolution was not extinguished in the hearts of the steadfast people of Ash-Sham, and that it is still a burning flame, fixed as the solid mountains.

The popular movement is of great importance, no doubt, in guiding public opinion and has a great role even in supporting or overthrowing the regimes. The revolution started with a blessed popular movement against the criminal agent regime in Damascus. It removed its legitimacy and shook its foundations, prompting the international community to work to support the agent criminal regime in Damascus, and attempt to restore its legitimacy; the major countries conspiring against the revolution of Ash-Sham for many years and spent great efforts to contain it and derail its course.

It is no secret that the setbacks that Ash-Sham’s revolution have suffered, both a military and popular revolt, were the result of linking its decision-making to the international community and the supporting countries, which confiscated the revolution’s decision-making, diverted it, and enforced on it the red lines and directives that exhausted the revolutionaries and maintained the criminal regime.

It was necessary for any new popular movement to take care and to fortify itself from repeating the fatal mistakes made in the past, and to be warned from taking any decision based on the interest of the effective countries on the Syrian arena, or that any demands and objectives or slogans fall under the ceiling allowed by these countries, and according to the policies of their choice, on the pretext of not upsetting them in an attempt to obtain a mirage called their support.

Therefore the new popular movement must fortify itself from deviation, so as not to lose the great sacrifices made by the people of Ash-Sham in vain. Among the most important things that fortifies any popular movement are:

1- The existence of a clear project around which people gather, and it must originate from their creed, the existence of this project is the one that brings them together and unify their word and crystallize their goals; and accounting will be on its basis, so that no one can divert the movement from its course.

2- It is also necessary for the movement to have an aware and sincere political leadership to direct it to the actions that would lead to its objectives: that its project must be practically implemented within a state.

3- It is necessary to uphold the principles (constants) of the revolution, which are crystallized through its long march, which are to overthrow the regime with all its pillars and symbols, and cut relations with the supporting countries, the falsely so-called supporters of the revolution, and the aim behind all this is to establish the Khilafah Rashidah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.

Thus, we can be reassured that the popular movement has become immune, and no one will be able to exploit it, or divert it from its course, because it is increasingly progressing steadily, according to its principles (constants) in order to achieve its goals.

Other than this, the movement is exposed to deviation. The marketing of the title “resistance is our choice” that we witnessed, and raising slogans that contradict people’s convictions and demands is to wipe out the real objectives of the revolution.

The Kafir colonialists’ countries’ have heavily plotted against the steadfast people of Ash-Sham and their revolution. We must be aware not to fall in their trap by fortifying ourselves, and holding on to the rope of our Lord, and trusting Him, and stand on His strong side. In this is our salvation and liberation and victory.

Allah (swt) says:

وَقَدْ مَكَرُوا مَكْرَهُمْ وَعِندَ اللَّهِ مَكْرُهُمْ وَإِن كَانَ مَكْرُهُمْ لِتَزُولَ مِنْهُ الْجِبَالُ فَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ مُخْلِفَ وَعْدِهِ رُسُلَهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ ذُو انتِقَامٍ

“And they had planned their plan, but with Allah is [recorded] their plan, even if their plan had been [sufficient] to do away with the mountains * So never think that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution.”
