Hizb ut-Tahrir is planning another one of their ‘Jihad conferences’, see http://www.hizb-australia.org/conference-2010/conference. This one is set for Sunday, July 4 at Grand Westella, 12 Bridge Street Lidcombe, NSW.
The previous one they held in Australia featured Islamic fundamentalists preaching for the formation of a global caliphate. Such a ‘caliphate’ can only be achieved by violent Jihad or ‘holy war’ as has been demonstrated in the 1,400 years of violence and slaughter driven by that evil engine of oppression, Islam.
The Jihad against India and the resulting Hindu Holocaust occurred under an Islamic Caliphate which caused the deaths of tens of millions of Hindus and Buddhists.
The Armenian genocide, during which over 1,000,000 Christian Armenians were exterminated by Muslims, occurred in the dying years of the Ottoman caliphate and provided the blueprint for Hitler’s “final solution.”
Mass murder and genocide is the legacy of Islamic caliphates, is that a legacy we want to leave for our children?
Join our peaceful vigil on July 4th to highlight the victims of Islamic imperialism and to reject the ideology of Hizb ut-Tahrir. Contact Darrin (0431 739 260) or Nick (0417 679 972). Assemble at Lidcombe station 11AM (Railway st. side), then we’ll be marching past the venue to Wellington park.
About Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT):
HT conferences around the world suggest that the group is currently in the second stage of its goal of establishing a global Islamic government. In commemoration of the anniversary of the abolishment of the Islamic caliphate 85 years ago, HT is holding worldwide events throughout the summer, calling “on Muslims around the world to mobilize … See … See MoreMoreto re-establish the Islamic Khilafah.” In addition to the July 19 conference in Oak Lawn, Illinois, events are taking place in Ukraine, Mauritius, Lebanon, Tanzania, Bangladesh, Britain, Indonesia, Sudan and Turkey, among other places.
HT claims that it does not engage in violent activities and generally espouses a policy of nonviolence. However, in a January 2010 press release, HT calls for violence against U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan. The group accuses “US crusaders” of killing nine school children and injuring 85 others in Afghanistan. “Such incidents,” HT says in the press release “has to be answered by sharp swords of Muslim united armies under a true Muslim leader (Imam/K), not by few words of condemnations, rallies and demonstrations or submissions of list of demands to the UN’s or Human Rights, which are the protector of these crusaders, not us.”
Its position on nonviolence is complicated by its admission that “jihad” is compulsory for Muslims in an Islamic country to fight their perceived enemies. According to the group’s Web site, “the members of Hizb ut-Tahrir in that country are a part of the Muslims and it is obligatory upon them as it is upon other Muslims, in their capacity as Muslims, to fight the enemy and repel them.” HT’s long record of hostility toward Israel and the Jews also belies HT’s claim that it does not espouse or condone violence.
The radicalization of HT members who adhere to the group’s extremist ideology can also lead to violent acts. In 2007, German police arrested three men on suspicion of plotting to bomb military and civilian airports, restaurants and nightclubs. Two of the men were allegedly Uzbek members of the HT splinter cell Islamic Jihad Union (IJU), which carried out a terrorist attack against the American and Israeli embassies in Uzbekistan in July 2004.
