Hizb-ut Tahrir: Antisemitic. Anti-Christian. Pro Pan-Islamist Terrorist Organization. Banned in many Muslim countries!

 “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….”

HuT regards itself as a “peaceful pan-Islamist organization.” What complete and utter twaddle!

“The danger with Hizb-ut Tahrir (HuT) is ever more serious and often overlooked because it is not always visible and does not conform to stereotypes.”  – PAK Institute For Peace Studies(PIPS)

     by Alan Simons

I have been reporting on this known terrorist group now for eleven years and I intend to continue doing so. To remind my readers and to put it as simply as possible: This is an antisemitic and anti-Christian terrorist organisation who 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.

Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT) is not a recent upstart. It was founded in 1953 in Jordanian Jerusalem by Taqiuddin al-Nabhani, an Islamic scholar and Palestinian Sharia judge.

Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT) is front and centre of an enthusiastic Islamist bunch of antisemitic, anti-West, anti-capitalist and anti-democratic educated ideological vicious revolutionists who, certainly in the West and Australia, dress as if they are on the board of one of President Trump’s blue-chip companies. As seen in this Australian Broadcasting Company click here>>> interview <<< their leaders are articulate, arrogant, well educated and when interviewed have done a good job of avoiding answering questions about their real intentions with a stylish line that could have been written by the best PR spin doctors.

Over the years HuT 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. They believe the establishment of the caliphate would provide stability and security. This forms part of their primary objective.

By the last count, HuT 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 countries, including Indonesia, Bangladesh, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Uzbekistan. In Malaysia, the Selangor Fatwa Committee  has outlawed HuT, declaring the group ‘deviant.’   

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

Last year in Singapore, a HuT member was arrested for propagating online extremism.

The group is also banned in China and Russia, but not in Ukraine or Lebanon, to name a few.

In Kyrgyzstan, the State Committee for Religious Affairs recently banned websites containing “materials propagandizing extremist ideology of religious extremist organizations.” Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Taliban are two organizations included in the list.

HuT regards itself as a “peaceful pan-Islamist organization.”

Earlier this month in Bangladesh, The Daily Sun reported; “Law enforcers are looking for top 10 militants of the banned militant outfit, Hizb ut-Tahrir Bangladesh, including its chief coordinator Zakaria, detective sources said.“These 10 fugitive militants under the leadership of kingpin Zakaria are secretly trying to reorganise the terrorist organisation’, the sources added:

“In the wake of the police crackdown, many of its activists, who had gone into hiding, have started coming out of their hideouts. They are now trying to conduct militant activities and other crimes in the country, the sources said.

It was in 2009 that Hizb ut-Tahrir showed its antisemitic hand as a so-called “peaceful pan-Islamist organization.” To quote:

  •         “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…”

         -18th Shawwal, 1430 A.H. Hizb ut-Tahrir. October 6, 2009

HuTs British chapter in London is regarded as the “nerve centre” of the movement. It was in 2007 that BBCs Panorama first took HuT to task. A former British supporter referring to HuT stated, “They always promoted hatred, they promote hostility…”

How strong is the case against HuT?  Well, in Denmark, comments by HuT go back even further. In 2003 Newsnight revealed HuT had published a leaflet in Denmark attacking Jews: “Kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out where they have turned you out.”

The leaflet continued: “The Jews are a people of slander… a treacherous people,.. they fabricate lies and twist words.”

 

 

During the past three years, two significant reports have been published worthy of bringing to your attention.

Surinder Kumar Sharma, of the Indian Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, states in an article in Global Ecco:

 “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 an 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, Moore 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.”

He adds:

“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 HuT should be considered an ANSA for analytical purposes.

In a report published in 2008 by Islam in Europe, the Dutch security service AIVD said:

“The movement [Hizb ut-Tahrir] operates exceptionally secretly and has a cell structure with an almost military hierarchy. The ideology is characterized by virulent anti-Zionism, and intense aversion to secular governments and ideologies, the complete shunning of those who believe differently and prescribing a confrontational and strongly polarizing message.”

I believe the variety of evidence from countries and other sources support the assertion that Hizb ut-Tahrir continues to remain a primary threat to our daily lives.

The Thirst for Revenge. The Media and our Politicians.

SPECIAL REPORT

“Our media have very little moral fiber left.”

There’s a well known quotation by the American writer Eric Hoffer. “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life.”

by Alan Simons

Among the lives of people, individuals and cultures there are some who maintain that the best thing for man to strive for in this world is to take revenge on his enemies. The satisfaction of thirst for revenge cannot be clearer than it is today. And since November 2016, be it from the political left or the right, America must accept ownership of being in the forefront of adding a venomous fire to religious hatred and intolerance.

The great ninth century Jewish philosopher Saadia Gaon commented that the thirst for revenge affords the pleasure of seeing discomfiture of its enemy, assuages the vehemence of its wrath and puts an end to excessive brooding. Saadia said that the man who is consumed by the desire for revenge gets into a frame of mind of refusing to accept intercession or entertaining any feeling of compassion or pity or listening to any plea of clemency.

Over one thousand years later Saadia’s comments still reflect the attitude that we have learnt nothing. As we observe the hatred between America’s political elites, Sunni and Shia, between Muslim and Jewish sense of victimhood, between Kenyan Luo, Kalenjin and Kikuya, Turkey and its PKK militants, Africa’s Greater Sahel and Lake Chad Basin and the Muslim Rohingya minority in Myanmar, we find very little is based upon the two way acceptance that my world is also your world.

Many gloat over peoples misfortune, falsify historical evidence, instill a hatred in each other’s cultures and religions that no civilized government has a hope in hell or will in stopping. It is a hatred that has its own direction, its own time and space, egged on by the perverse nature of fanatics such as Daesh and the Jew-hating Hizb ut-Tahrir, as well as a score from the evangelical movements, utilizing the services of the ten second clip, satellite dishes, mobile phones, photos of children flourishing guns and Internet web sites.  It is a hatred spurned on by educated societies to the masses of the uneducated and their educated children.

Today, as we fantasize for the return of the Walter Cronkite’s of our world, we attempt to compare the difference between America’s fake news and the flag-waving, drum-rolling entertainment news programmes thrust upon us by the TV networks. For lighting the match of hate and intolerance is by no means a right of privilege of our politicians, who are in direct competition with much of our media.

It’s been said that because our media have very little moral fiber left, they have enhanced the egregious display of open prejudice pervading our society today. The days where media were supposed to spread enlightenment has vanished. We have crossed the red line. It’s an utter travesty. I’ve said enough!

Rwanda: 7 April 2017. Never Again!

Four words:

Duhore Tuzilikana Kirazira Kwibagirwa!

We Must Never Forget!

Today, 7 April 2017 is the 23rd Commemoration of the Genocide Against the Tutsi. 

by Alan Simons

In a few weeks time, on 23 April at sundown, Jews throughout the world observe Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. It is the day where we pay tribute to all the victims of the Holocaust and ghetto uprisings. Inaugurated 64 years ago we like you, have no intention of forgetting our loved ones. Therefore, as a Jew, my message to you is not from a stranger, but from a brother and partner. For in commemorating the 23rd anniversary of the 1994 genocide against Tutsi, your loss, is also my loss.

However, I ask myself what right do I have to speak of such experiences of genocide?

Who am I to speak of such unthinkable acts of violence and cruelty, unequaled in modern history?

I never witnessed killings, or had my life threatened. I never lost immediate family members, nor witnessed rape or sexual mutilation, or had to hide under corpses.

Rwanda April 7 2017 bSo, what authority gives me the right to speak about Rwanda’s genocide, to talk about your families and friends who perhaps survived these 23 years, and hopefully, I repeat hopefully, have been able to overcome their traumatic experiences and find optimism in the future, as well as speak of those who were murdered?

Well, a few years ago President Kagame of Rwanda, photographed above, said: “The world chose to watch as one million were being slaughtered. Victims were turned into perpetrators and justice was turned into a political tool. The world has shown us that we cannot afford not to fight. Do not be afraid to stand up for truth, justice and for who we are. The only way to live in this world is to stand up for ourselves, stay true to who we are and define our own destiny.”

Perhaps, more than anything, it is in these words that binds Jews and Rwandans together in a mutual understanding of what intolerance and hate is all about in our society today. And, we have only to look at the past few weeks of what happened in London, a few hours ago in Stockholm, as well as the gassing earlier this week of children and adults in Syria, to appreciate the scope and threat of the world we continue to live in.

Hate is hate, irrespective of one’s religion, colour or nationality.

Even now in Canada there are deniers of both the Rwandan genocide and the Holocaust who continue to thrust their sick fermented ideas into the international arena. As Hitler remains centre stage to many antisemites, it was only a couple of months ago that Rwanda’s deniers actually competed to question who was to blame for the 1994 killings. 

It’s been said that sadness is but a wall between two gardens. May all of those who perished in the genocide be remembered for their beauty and fragrance that grace our gardens.

My dear Rwandan brothers and sisters, finding an appropriate way of honouring and remembering the dead is one of the goals of the mourning process. For, as Elie Wiesel the Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor said, “To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.”
