A terrible massacre was committed by the criminal Brenton Tarant (from Australia) on Friday, 15/3/2019, who stormed Al-Nour Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing from the worshippers 41 martyrs and injuring dozens. He then proceeded to the Lenwood Mosque, 3 miles away from Al-Nour Mosque. The outcome of the double crime was 50 martyrs and 47 injured. Despite the 45 minutes between the two crimes, the security men did not stop him from committing his second crime!
The terrorist published a 74-page manifesto calling on others to follow his example to terrorize Muslims in the West by killing them to get them to leave the West, without any mercy or discrimination between children, women and the elderly … It was clear in his statement that his crime was just another continuing scene from the ongoing Crusades. He had admitted that he got approval for the attack from the Templar Knights, a Masonic group established after the first crusade.
But the question here is: Will this crime stop at the action of this butcher, as it did before when the “doctor” Baruch Goldstein, who killed 29 worshipers at the Ibrahimi Mosque at dawn prayers in the middle of Ramadan 1994, and wounded 125 others? Just as the Serbs committed the famous massacre of Srebrenica, which claimed the lives of more than 8000 Muslims, which was committed under the eyes of the United Nations forces that “guaranteed” the protection of Muslims? And the same goes for the murders of Muslims in Kashmir, in Central Africa and in Myanmar? Or will the criminality stop at the leaders of the international coalition, which launched 32,000 air raids in Syria and Iraq under the pretext of confronting ISIS, with full knowledge of the deaths of thousands of civilian casualties? Without mentioning the victims of Russian criminality, including the recent four raids on civilians in Idlib, while the Jews have launched yesterday 100 raids in the Gaza Strip!
Yes, there is no secret to the size of the international conspiracy against Muslims wherever they are, despite all kinds of justifications and slogans. Western leaders have long decided to launch successive campaigns aimed at the extermination of Muslims, as happened with the Native Americans in the American continent. If they failed, then the aim is to intimidate and assimilate Muslims and impose on them to abandon their Deen, as does the Chinese authorities in East Turkistan, and the Russian authorities in Russia.
The real criminal is not this person or that, but rather it is the policy adopted by the leaders of the West in demonizing Islam and Muslims to instill hatred in the hearts of their peoples. This hatred is manifested in criminal acts, both the official by the state or unofficial by individuals here and there.
Allah (swt) told us the truth of the hatred of these criminals, in His saying: وَلَا يَزَالُونَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَن دِينِكُمْ إِنِ اسْتَطَاعُوا “And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able.” [Al-Baqara: 217]
And Allah’s (swt) saying: قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ “Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater.” [Al-i-Imran: 118]
Allah (swt) showed us the way to preserve the dignity and pride of Muslims and how to stop their bloodshed and preserve their honour, which is exclusively by the presence of the Khalifah (Caliph), who seeks to instill fear in the hearts of enemies and to deter anyone wishing to harm Islam and Muslims. وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُم مَّا اسْتَطَعْتُم مِّن قُوَّةٍ وَمِن رِّبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوَّ اللَّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآخَرِينَ مِن دُونِهِمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows.” [Al-Anfal: 60]
These enemies only understand the language of force. The Messenger of Allah the truthful said: «إِنَّمَا الإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ». “Indeed, the Imam (Khaleefah) is a shield, from behind whom you fight and by whom you are protected.”
O Muslims, the path to your pride, success and the pleasure of your Lord, is made clear to you. Your blood, your dignity will only be protected by the Khilafah (Caliphate) state, which brings you together and unites your strength and deter your enemy, and move you from the miserable state to the state of being the best nation brought to mankind.
O Allah, have mercy on our martyrs in New Zealand and everywhere and accept them in the higher Heaven, and help us to establish the Khilafah sooner rather than later, You are the Guardian of that and capable of it.
