Hizb ut-Tahrir. Ban this terrorist organisation now!

Hizb ut-Tahrir: Antisemitic. Anti-Christian. Pro Pan-Islamist Terrorist Organization. Banned in many Muslim countries, but not in the UK, USA or Canada!

Hizb ut-Tahrir regards itself as a “peaceful pan-Islamist organization.” What complete and utter garbage!

   by Alan Simons

Hizb ut-Tahrir is front and centre of an enthusiastic Islamist bunch of antisemitic, anti-West, anti-Christian, anti-capitalist and anti-democratic educated ideological vicious revolutionists.

I’ve been reporting on this terrorist group for nearly twelve years. To remind my readers and to put it as succinctly as possible: This terrorist organisation wants to conquer the world with its blatant egregious wish to demolish the democratic system of your government and in its place initiate a caliphate in your country. It has been quietly waiting in the shadows for the opportunity to pronounce itself as the foremost trustworthy leader in the Muslim world. Their timing is impeccable. Their aim is clearly defined. I repeat. To establish an Islamic Caliphate or Islamic state in your country and to resume the Islamic way of life for all.

Over the years Hizb ut-Tahrir has matured into a global sophisticated organisation that maintains the illusion, to ignorant Westerners, that they have an interest in reaching its goals of a caliphate peacefully and through non-violent means.  Poppycock! They believe the establishment of the caliphate would provide stability and security. This forms part of their primary objective.

By last count, Hizb ut-Tahrir is operating in more than 50 countries worldwide including the USA, Canada and the UK. Australia has been pussyfooting to ban the organisation for years. However, HuT is “banned in many Muslim-majority countriesincluding Indonesia, Bangladesh, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Uzbekistan. In Malaysia, the Selangor Fatwa Committee  has outlawed Hizb ut-Tahrir, declaring the group ‘deviant.’   

Recently the Indonesian government, the most populous Muslim country in the world, revoked Hizb ut-Tahrir’s charter, “citing incompatibility with government regulations extremism and national ideology.” Needless to say, Hizb ut-Tahrir is currently fighting Indonesia’s revocation with the same vigour as they do in expressing their hatred of Jews. And boy, do they hate Jews!

In the UK, the group’s so-called world ‘nerve-centre’ headquarters, Hizb ut-Tahrir, according to The Times“has relocated to the Sparkhill area of Birmingham, which has been home to several convicted terrorists, including the UK’s first al-Qaeda inspired terrorist. The Times adds, it has now set its sights on Birmingham’s inner-city youth and “has launched a recruitment drive in an inner-city neighbourhood that is linked to more homegrown terrorists than anywhere else in the UK.

“Campaign materials for its youth roadshow, launched in July, make no mention of the group’s name and do not feature its usual logo of the Islamic state flag. They instead aim to present the group, which two prime ministers considered banning, as an innocuous community organisation.”

The Daily Mail went one step further. Last week in an article they reported Hizb ut-Tahrir, “is using children as young as 13 to peddle books supporting suicide bombing and jihad in Britain.”

They added: “An undercover reporter who attended a number of the meetings was sold books suggesting suicide strikes are acceptable, and others saying jihad was ‘compulsory’ to spread the message of Islam.

“The group allowed a 13-year-old to sell pamphlets comparing Westerners to animals over their ‘filthy promiscuity’ and urging followers to shun British culture.

“The reporter also saw children as young as ten bowing their heads in prayer and reading from the Koran at meetings – despite Hizb ut-Tahrir’s claim only over-16s can ‘engage’ in its work.”

In addition, The Daily Mail research found:

  • A member boasted of having active recruiters at universities including Oxford, University College London and the School of Oriental and African Studies – despite the group being banned from speaking on campuses;
  • A separate Hizb ut-Tahrir speaker said ‘we need to try to change’ homosexuals;
  • Devotees are warned that women will be punished for leaving home ‘uncovered’;
  • Followers, who believe ‘jihad’ should be waged against Israel, back Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for ‘saying it how it is’ amid the party’s anti-Semitism crisis.

None of this surprises me. It was in 2009 that I found Hizb ut-Tahrir showed its antisemitic hand. To quote from -18th Shawwal, 1430 A.H. Hizb ut-Tahrir. October 6, 2009.

  •         “Al-Quds [Jerusalem] cannot be liberated by resorting to protests and sit-in… it can only be restored by mobilizing armed forces to eliminate the Jewish entity!
  •         “That way is to mobilize the Muslim armies and bring together all able-bodied Muslims to eliminate the Jewish entity from its roots and only then will the al-Aqsa be liberated and cleared of the scum and evil of the Jews and their offsprings….
  •       “The way is to regard the entire Palestine as one right from the banks of the river in the east to the sea in the west, without differentiating the lands occupied in 1948 or in 1967; whoever relinquishes even one part of the land, actually facilitates surrender of part after part, whoever displays weakness, humiliation is his destiny…” 

Two years earlier, in 2007, BBCs Panorama took this organisation to task.  A former British supporter, referring to Hizb ut-Tahrir, stated, “They always promoted hatred, they promote hostility…”

Let us hope Sara Khan, chief of the British Government’s newly created Commission for Countering Extremism, as well as her equivalent colleagues in the USA and in Canada, will respond effectively and ban this abhorrent terrorist group now!

We Have Lost Our Way

Jew-hate is not an option. But for many, they thrive on it. Don’t dismiss it.

As we come to the end of January 2016, let’s take a few minutes to dwell on the sickness that pervades the Middle East and in Europe. Yes, you’re probably rolling your eyes, your eyebrows have reached the upper limits of your forehead, and you’ve started to sigh and shake your head in dismay. So, let’s go right into what I have to say.

by Alan Simons

   by Alan Simons

Jew-hate item one: “While the victim of terror attack, Dafna Meir 36, and a mother of six children, was being laid to rest in Jerusalem, a Palestinian Facebook page with more than four million followers posted the horrendous picture above. The word written in the middle of the picture is ‘Otniel’, the name of the community where the terror attack took place. After the community’s name, a bloody knife emblazoned with a Palestinian flag on the handle is depicted above words that praise the terrorist. This is a prime example of murderous Palestinian incitement on social media that encourages terror attacks against Israelis and needs to be stopped immediately!”

Jew-hate item two: “The father of the teenage Arab terrorist who murdered mother of six Dafna Meir in her home on Sunday night has expressed pride over his son’s gruesome actions. Murad Bader Abdullah Adais fatally stabbed Meir at the front door to her house in Otniel, as she valiantly struggled to close the door on him and prevent him from slaughtering three of her children who were with her at the time. Adais then fled on foot, sparking a major manhunt which resulted in his capture early Tuesday morning. Speaking to Palestinian media, Adais’s father said he was proud of his son for stabbing the unarmed nurse to death. “I am proud of him,” he said, adding that security forces also detained and interrogated several family members during the arrest operation.”

James McGreevey, the former Governor of New Jersey, was once quoted as saying we are losing sight of civility in government and politics. Debate and dialogue is taking a back seat to the politics of destruction and anger and control. Dogma has replaced thoughtful discussion between people of differing views.

I find it hard not to disagree with McGreevey, other than to say in my opinion we have already lost it, not just in government and politics, but within society! The sickness that is consuming people, coupled with their utter hate and cruelty towards anything that resembles the likes of a Jew, has become intolerable. So let’s call a spade a spade, stop making a plethora of platitudes and excuses for our fellow man, and look directly at some of this month’s who’s-who in the Jew-hate category: 

  • Hizbullah Deputy Secretary-General Na’im Qassem at Beirut Conference for Palestine said: “Our Goal Is To Eliminate Israel.” 
  • A pregnant woman hurt in a stabbing near Jerusalem, Michal Fruman, 30, moderately wounded in terror attack in Tekoa; her unborn baby was unharm; the terrorist was shot and critically wounded by an armed civilian.
  •  Fatah-run Awdah TV broadcast a music video explicitly calling to murder Israelis all over Israel – “in all their neighborhoods.” The song calls on Palestinians to “drown them in a sea of blood, kill them as you wish.” 
  • Abbas’ Fatah movement posted an uncensored version of the picture of dead terrorist murderer Nashat Melhem lying in a pool of blood. It also praised the killer of three a “Martyr” and congratulated him on its official Facebook page.
  • Fatah’s branch in Bethlehem marked Fatah Day on January 7, 2016 with a parade in the Dheisheh refugee camp featuring masked men brandishing firearms and axes, as well as children armed with mock RPG rockets and suicide belts.
  • A man wearing a kippah was attacked and robbed in Germany in an antisemitic attack by refugees from Syria and Afghanistan on the island of Puttgarden. The victim was a 49 year old French businessman who was pushed to the floor and robbed by the attackers as they yelled “Yahud’ Arabic for Jew. They took his shoulder bag that contained money, a cellphone and other valuables.

Hizb ut-Tahrir

Be it the Daesh, Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hizb ut Tahrir, Al-Qaeda or Al-Sabireen, these vile miscreants are tarred with the same brush; they all hate Jews.

Back to Jew-hate filled Gaza. How many of the western media are writing about Al-Sabireen, the newest terrorist group in the Gaza Strip?

  • “The new Iranian-backed Al-Sabireen was established in wake of tensions between Iran and its two former allies in the Gaza Strip: Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis four years ago, relations between Tehran and Hamas and Islamic Jihad have been strained. […]  Al-Sabireen, whose emblem is identical to that of another Iran proxy, Hezbollah, so far has about 400 followers in the Gaza Strip. Each one receives a monthly salary of $250-$300, while the senior officials of the group get at least $700.”

And what, if any, was the reaction in the western media to Hamas’ spokesman Fawzi Barhoum when he said, “Let me say loud and clear to our people in the West Bank: anyone who has a knife, a club, a weapon, or a car, yet does not use it to run over a Jew…and does not use it to kill dozens of Zionists, does not belong to Palestine.” 

  • A local French politician was been found dead in his apartment with multiple stab wounds. Alain Ghozland, 73, a Republican councillor from Creteil near Paris, which has a large Jewish population. A family member told Metro News that the body showed signs of both stabbing and beating, but police have no leads on the investigation yet.
  • And while much of the western media insist on regurgitating the question, “Why hasn’t Israel lifted the Gaza blockade,” none of them seem to be at all interested in the fact, and I quote: “Since the 2013 Egyptian coup d’état in which president Mohammad Morsi was ousted by General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Egyptian authorities have kept the border crossing almost totally closed. Twenty-two days into 2016, the Rafah border crossing has been closed and Gazans lack supplies of basic goods such as gas and electricity. Currently, the chances of the crossing being reopened are low, given Egypt’s declaration that it will not open it before the fifth anniversary of the 2011 uprising.”

By the way, the fifth anniversary is on Monday, January 25. Watch for plenty of hate, smoke and fire on the day. Know doubt the Jew-haters will find cause to blame any deaths on the Jewish holiday of Tu BiShvat, which also occurs on January 25.

In Canada, where I live, the country where we are in the process of extending a welcome to some 25,000 Syrian refugees of various faiths, we are also not immune to Jew-hate. Here’s what Honest Reporting Canada had to say earlier this week.

“”Writing in the Globe and Mail on December 14, Michael Bell, former Canadian ambassador to Israel and co-director of the Jerusalem Old City Initiative, excused Palestinian terrorism while baselessly charging that a “Judaization” of Jerusalem exists. In truth, Bell’s op-ed was just another example of Palestinian incitement.

“Without substantiation, Bell claimed Israeli “zealots” are attempting to change the Temple Mount’s status quo while seeking the destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque, efforts which Bell claimed are prompting Palestinians to commit terrorism.

“Bell claimed: “The spate of frequent and growing knife attacks has been provoked by the perhaps unsurprising misperception that Mr. Netanyahu plans to change the “status quo” step by step, given the pressures he is subject to.””

And in conclusion, in Sweden, the repugnant Israel-bashing Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom continues to make outrageous claims. Recently it was reported “she called on Israel to halt what she called ‘extrajudicial executions’ in response to attacks by knife-wielding Palestinians.” 

We have lost our way. What politician, what member of society, has the will and fortitude to help change it? Depressing, isn’t?

Hizb ut-Tahrir: And the March Goes On.

SPECIAL REPORT: Part Two

“It would be a grave folly to ignore the growing influence of HuT and its global agenda.”

by Alan Simons
by Alan Simons

With the extraordinary amount of interest shown towards my previous report on Hizb ut-Tahrir, especially in the USA, the following summarises the various examples of how this extremist, and more often than not, threatening international Muslim political organisation, is making waves in many parts of the world.

As Surinder Kumar Sharma, of the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses states in a recent article in Global Ecco: “While the world’s attention is fixed on the activities of the dangerous and ruthless Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, or simply ISIL), there is another militant organization worthy of serious attention. Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT), or the Party of Liberation, is a radical Islamist group that, like ISIS, calls for the uniting of the Ummah and the return of the Caliphate.” He adds, “Given the fact that HuT already has a wide reach and is successfully inducting and radicalizing educated youth, the outfit has the potential to stage coups and uprisings against governments and regimes that it considers un-Islamic or aligned with anti-Muslim powers. HuT may well prove dangerous because it has immense influence on people, especially in the way that it legitimizes the cause to establish a Caliphate. While the world’s focus currently is on ISIS, it would be a grave folly to ignore the growing influence of HuT and its global agenda.”

Dr. James W. Moore, Ph.D., LL.M., is a Defence Scientist in the Socio-Cognitive Systems Section at DRDC Toronto, Canada. Previously, he worked for twenty years as a Strategic Analyst responsible for research and reporting on the Middle East with the Directorate of Strategic Analysis/CORA at Canada’s National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa. In a report written  in The Canadian Military Journal and published by National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces, he refers to the term ANSA and describes it as, “An autonomously operating planned group that has the capacity to use violence to achieve political ends.”

 Moore asks the following question:

“Is Hizb ut-Tahrir an ANSA? Should the group fall under our analytical microscope? Given the ambiguities in the group’s ideology and strategy with respect to the use of violence, culminating in the fact that we cannot with confidence rule out the group’s resort to such methods under certain circumstances, the case can be made that HT should be considered an ANSA for analytical purposes.”

Here’s a round-up of some of Hizb ut-Tahrir’s recent activities.

Indonesia- 150,000 attend the event

Hizb ut-Tahrir (Islamic Liberation Party) in 35 different cities in Indonesia this year, as every year, on the anniversary of the abolition of the Caliphate, organized marches and demonstrations. The last of these in a series of events that occurred on the morning of May 30, 2015 took place in the capital Jakarta, with a capacity of 150 thousand at the international Bung Karno stadium. In the presence of famous writers, thinkers and opinion leaders a four hour conference took place. The head of the Media Office of Hizb ut-Tahrir Indonesia, Ismail Yusanto, on behalf of the Caliphate Conference made an emphatic speech. University and high school students also held a conference organized by ongoing demonstrations, which was terminated by a prayer. kokludegisim.net

Gaza- Hamas struggling with emerging Islamist parties

Tensions are ongoing between the Hamas movement and the Salafist Ansar al-Dawla movement, which in February publicly declared its support for the Islamic State (IS), to which Hamas is opposed and which in turn does not look favorably upon Hamas. Meanwhile, on May 17, Hamas allowed another Islamic group, Hizb ut-Tahrir (Party of Liberation), to stage an event in the center of Gaza commemorating the 94th anniversary of the fall of the Islamic caliphate, last led by the Ottomans… “Destroying the Islamic caliphate led to the loss [under one flag] of Palestinian land and the rest of the Arabs,” Hassan al-Madhoun, spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir in the Gaza Strip, told Al-Monitor. “Only the Islamic caliphate will fill the political vacuum experienced by the Arab and Islamic nations. It will liberate Palestine and unify the Arab and Muslim nations in light of the sectarian rivalry witnessed in the Arab region… “We call on the Muslim armies to direct their weapons toward Israel instead of Muslims in an Arab country,” Madhoun said. – Al-Monitor

West Bank – Hizb ut-Tahrir says PA arrested 10 West Bank members

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — The political group Hizb ut-Tahrir said on Saturday that Palestinian Authority security services had arrested 10 of its members across the West Bank.Hizb ut-Tahrir, which translates as Party of Liberation, said in a statement that their members had been arrested over speeches delivered in West Bank mosques following Friday prayers that condemned a PA decision to ban a party conference that was going to be held in Ramallah.Hizb ut-Tahrir is a pan-Islamic political organization which was founded in Jerusalem in 1953 with the goal of uniting all Muslims into a united state with an elected Caliph at its head.They regularly promote their ideas through speeches in mosques or issuing statements following Friday prayer or at other large Muslim gatherings. – Ma’an News Agency

Denmark – Hizb ut-Tahrir has seized power in residential area. Threatens TV crew.

Last Thursday [March 26, 2015] a television crew from TV2 went to Islandshøjparken in Denmark’s Nordsjælland. But the TV crew suddenly became in serious trouble, says Nordsjælland Police according to Frederiksborg Amts Avis. The notorious Islamic organization Hizb ut-Tahrir has just seized power of the resident board. At the annual meeting in February, Omar Saad was elected Chairman and several of his supporters also became members of the board. Omar Saad is an active member of Hizb ut-Tahrir and is against democracy, and for a caliphate governed by Sharia. That means a new era in the area. The TV crew were allowed to make recordings, but suddenly the interviewees regretted and demanded the tapes handed over. The TV2 team refused. But those interviewed did not take no for an answer. There were threats and one of them took out a knife and tried to cut the tire on TV2’s car. It is not only outsiders who feel threatened. Torun Have, who has lived in Islandshøjparken for three years, says that the sense of security is gone. Since Omar Saad became Chairman of the board, the mood has changed. “I’m afraid. Everything has changed, and it has become a war between them and us. Something I have never experienced before, though there have been Muslims on the board earlier,” she says to Ekstra Bladet. Several cars were driving past at high speed while Ekstra Bladet interviewed Torun Have. Some young men rolls down the window, and shouts provocative. The TV interview shows them shouting “Sharia” out the window. “It’s hard to explain, but right now there is a very ‘us against them-mood’, which is really uncomfortable.” It has never been like this before,” she says to Ekstra Bladet. – speisa.com

Australia – Women forced to back of lecture theatre at Hizb ut-Tahrir lecture

A university address by radical Muslim group Hizb ut-Tahrir saw women sent to the back of the lecture theatre while men took their place at the front. “Brothers to the front and sisters to the back” was the message from the preachers who were invited to speak at the meeting in sydney’s west on Thursday night. The Daily Telegraph reports men and women were segregated before the lecture to students at the University of Western Sydney’s Parramatta campus began. Women were ushered through a door marked “sisters” at the rear of the hall, while the “brothers” entered through another door and were told to take their place in “the front five rows”, the Telegraph reports. – femina.com

Malaysia – Hudud law in the country?

Hizb ut-Tahrir in Malaysia have rejected a proposal to put the hudud punishments of sharia law before parliament on the grounds that subjecting sharia law to the democratic process is forbidden according to Islamic law. A bill to implement hudud punishments has already been passed in Malysia’s Kelantan state. The new law bars non-Muslims from serving as legal witnesses in court, and introduces punishments including caning, amputation, crucifixion and stoning. Politicians are now attempting to bring hudud punishments before the national parliament. Hizb ut-Tahrir, which is an international Islamist group focused on the establishment of a global Islamic caliphate, strenuously disagreed with implementing sharia law through democracy. Instead the group demanded that the hudud punishments be implemented immediately without regard to any parliamentary process.The Malaysian Insider

China –  Chinese authorities link Xinjiang unrest to Hizb ut-Tahrir

The International Herald Tribune spotted a Chinese language press release in which Chinese authorities fascinatingly attribute the protests in Khotan as well as various forms of unrest and troublemaking in Kashgar, Urumqi, and Kizilsu Prefecture to the international Islamic political organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, or the “Party of Liberation.” Hizb ut-Tahrir, or HUT (kind of like Jabba) has garnered quite the reputation in Central Asian nations as a rallying point for Muslims bearing religious grievances against oppressive, secularist governments. HUT has an elaborate set of written guiding principles, and allegedly one of these embraces non-violent means as the only proper means to attain the group’s goal of restoring the Caliphate, thus, their main methods remain limited, on the surface, at least, to the propagation of the “right ideas” through lectures, sermons, booklets, and pamphlets. There have been several instances where violent activities were attributed by governmental authorities to HUT,.. This is the first attempt by the Chinese government to link unrest to Hizb ut-Tahrir that I’m aware of. It represents a significant and curious clarification of previous allegations of international involvement in Xinjiang incidents, the vast majority of which have involved a hazy specter of “international terrorism” or exile Uyghur organizations whose goals and aspirations remain quite distant from those of religious organizations. – Hizb ut-Tahrir Watch

Kyrgyzstan – Suspected members of Hizb ut-Tahrir detained in Kyrgyzstan

BISHKEK — Kyrgyz officials say several suspected members of the banned Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir have been apprehended across the country. Officials in the northern district of Jety-Oguz said on February 10 that four local men have been detained after investigators found a gun and “extremist” printed and electronic texts at their homes in the village of Ak-Terek. Another suspected Hizb ut-Tahrir member was reportedly apprehended in the southern Batken Province on February 10. On February 9, officials in the southern region of Osh province said they detained a local imam for being a member of the group. Kyrgyz authorities say Hizb ut-Tahrir plays a role in a strategy used by Al-Qaeda and Islamic State militants to radicalize youth and recruit them to fight in Syria and Iraq. Hizb ut-Tahrir, which is banned across Central Asia and in Russia, says it is peaceful.

In 2013, Michael Whine MBE, Government and International Affairs Director at the Community Security Trust, was appointed to a five year term as new UK independent member of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI). Mr Whine has been professionally employed as a researcher on extremism, antisemitism, and terrorism for over twenty five years. He also acts as Consultant on Defence and Security to the European Jewish Congress, and represents it at the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Nine years ago, The Hudson Institute published a paper by Whine titled, “Is Hizb ut-Tahrir Changing Strategy or Tactics?  His assessment at that time could still reflect on where Hizb ut-Tahrir is today.

“It cannot be denied that members of HT continue to provide a manpower pool for terrorist recruitment. One former senior member stated some years ago his belief that ‘if Hizb ut-Tahrir [is] not stopped at this stage, and we continue to let them politicize and pollute the youngsters’ minds and other gullible peoples’ minds, then what will happen in effect is that these terrorist acts and these suicide bombings that we hear going on around in foreign countries, we will actually start seeing these incidents happening outside our doorsteps.’ It seems reasonably clear that the basic aim of HT—to re-establish the Caliphate and to extend it elsewhere—remains in place. It is indeed also the ultimate aim of all Islamist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami, and the subsequent offshoots of these groups. It must be noted that HT was the first group to do so, at a time when the Brotherhood focused only on the Arab world, while the Jamaat concentrated solely on the Indian subcontinent. HT’s basic strategy also still remains, while it only occasionally makes explicit mention of the violence implicit in the third stage of its program—the seizing of power.”
