Hizb ut Tahrir, the crazies who want to establish a Caliphate and unite the Muslim world (but who can’t even manage to keep their own group united) like to parade themselves as a political party. It is often said that the Hizb is non-violent and not anti-Semitic.
As a group, the Hizb doesn’t like to get its hands dirty so it won’t engage in violence directly, but that doesn’t mean they don’t support violent global jihad. In fact, they actively call for it.
Just look at this press release issued by the Hizb in Pakistan:
The Jews are Jews… Anything could be expected from them!!
By killing more than a dozen aid workers the Jews have proven once again to the world that the State of Israel has no right to exist
Pretty tame stuff by Hizb standards until you get to this:
Jews are the same “Maghdoob” (on whom Allah was angry) nation about which Allah (swt) Himself ordered Muslims to seek refuge from their evil ways five times a day. This and such other deeds are only the handiwork of this cursed nation, whose forefathers were made monkeys and pigs for their inexcusable actions.
It laments that jihadists are
…unable to remove the filthy state of Israel…
And just how does the ‘non-violent’ Hizb want to destroy Israel?
There is only one way to stop the aggression of Israel and save the captive Muslims of Gaza, and this way does not pass through halls of National assembly, OIC or UN rather it originates from the garrisons of the Muslim armies. This is the responsibility of the Generals of the Muslim armies to point their tanks and missiles towards Israel and mobilize their armies to eradicate the state of Israel from the face of the planet. And if these traitor rulers try to come in their way they should trample upon them as well.
Who should do this?
We call upon the Pakistani army to fulfill their responsibility and prepare nuclear bombs and other weapons for Jihad instead of polishing them to give guard-of-honors. And if Zardari or Gilani comes in their way they should uproot them and give bayaa to a sincere Khaleefah to fight under this command to annihilate Israel.
Prepare the nukes for Jihad? This from a ‘non-violent’ group?
And here are Hizb supporters in Pakistan calling for more of the same:
What has any of this got to do with the UK? Well, the Hizb is one global party. It might say different things in different countries based on the local reality, but its members all share the same beliefs. A secret weekly meeting for members known as the Halakah ensures that.
So the fact this press release was issued in Pakistan makes no difference. You won’t find any members of the Hizb’s British leadership who will disavow the Pakistan press release.
Of course, the Hizb used to publish similar messages in the UK until they found it was too counter-productive to their image. Here’s one of their leaflets from a few years ago:
The Jews are clearly a cowardly people who hate death and fighting, whereas the Muslims love death and are eager to die fighting Jihad.
For a group that claims not to be anti-Semitic they sure have a funny old way of showing it in their leaflets. Here’s one from 2003:
The Jews are a people of slander. They are a treacherous people who violate oaths and covenants. They lie and change words from their right places. They take the rights of people unjustly, and kill the Prophets and the innocent. They are the most severe in their hatred for those who believe.
And when it comes to peace in the Middle East here’s what they advised:
Muslims must not simply be content with not normalising relations with the Jews, or even with rejecting normalisation with them, rather they are obliged to fight the usurping Jews wherever they are found until they expel them from the land of the Muslims.
Why is this group, which spreads racial hatred and encourages acts of terrorism around the world still allowed to operate legally in the UK?
