“Hizb ut-Tahrir America Promotes Supremacism As Solution to Pakistan Violence, Poverty”
SNIPPET: “Washington DC: December 31, 2009. (R.E.A. L) In the Chicago suburb of Lombard on December 20, 2009, Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA) held a recruitment event to promote its anti-democracy, Islamic supremacist views, with the focus of this event by claiming that the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is not sufficiently “Islamic” enough for Hizb ut-Tahrir’s goals of creating “Islamic states” in building a global Islamic supremacist caliphate.
Image from Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s Web Site Promoting a Chicago Suburb Event on Pakistan on December 20Three days before the HTA Lombard event, Hizb ut-Tahrir published an “open letter to the Ulema of Pakistan” calling for the Pakistan people to overthrow their government, and “uprooting the agent government,” and stating “the Ulema should issue a Fatwa for the expulsion of America from the region.” In this December 17 press release, Hizb ut-Tahrir further claimed that “America has planned to shift the blame of her crimes towards the Muslims...”
This message was conveyed to new American recruits in the Chicago area by Hizb ut-Tahrir America in a “lecture given by Abu Baseer.” Baseer spoke to a group of approximately 40 individuals, with women once again segregated in the back of the Lombard community building facility.”
SNIPPET: “...Abu Baseer told new Hizb ut-Tahrir America recruits not to trust Christians and Jews as “allies,” stating that it was against Allah’s will. Abu Baseer also denounced “the Kafir” (”infidel”) stating that the “sanctity of Muslim blood is greater... than the sanctity of the Kafir.” (The next day, December 21, Hizb ut-Tahrir America posted an article stating that schools for other religions, such as Jews, would only be permitted for “Dhimmis” accepting a state of Islamic supremacist servitude.)
SNIPPET: “Hizb ut-Tahrir America December 20, 2009 Speakers in Lombard...”
SNIPPET: “Abu Baseer provided a pro-jihadist spin on the July 2007 confrontation between the Pakistan government and the Islamic supremacist jihadists who took over the Lal Masjid (”Red Mosque,”) using it as a base for Islamic supremacists who held children hostage and killed Pakistan soldiers, as reported by the New York Times, London Times, Dawn News, and others. Abu Baseer did not tell new recruits how Lal Masjid was not used as a place of worship, but as an Islamic supremacist armory of “machine guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, ammunition, antitank mines, unexploded suicide vests and a crate of petrol bombs”, anti-aircraft weapons, nor does he mention that it was Islamic supremacists that “booby-trapped the compound.” He didn’t mention that the Lal Masjid mosque was used to try to shoot down planes. He didn’t mention about the letters found there from Al-Qaeda leader Al-Zawahiri providing direction. He did not tell American recruits how Islamic supremacists held boys and girls hostage at Lal Masjid from their Muslim parents, were not allowed to leave, and how the Islamic supremacists shot one father who dared to pick up his son. He did not tell American recruits how the Pakistan government pleaded for the Lal Masjid jihadists to release the hostage children to safety.
Nor did Abu Baseer tell new Hizb ut-America recruits that it was in fact a Lal Masjid Jihadist who spilled “Muslim blood” as reported in the London Times that “transformed from a seat of religious learning to an inferno by the suicide bomber who detonated his charge as the Pakistani commandos stormed the Red Mosque compound.” All the new American recruits for the Islamic supremacist Hizb ut-Tahrir were told is that it was the Pakistan government “burning innocent females and children alive,” inciting hatred against the Pakistan government as “un-Islamic.””
SNIPPET: “Abu Baseer claimed that “America wants to invade and occupy Pakistan for itself,” imagining a U.S. plot “to control the gateway to Southeast Asia” and “immense energy resources” and an imagined U.S. plot to create a “major front against America’s competitors like China and Russia,” viewing the “war on terror” as a “proxy war” intended to “partition Pakistan.” Never criticizing the Islamic supremacist Taliban, Abu Baseer claimed that the violence in Pakistan was not the result of Islamic supremacist terrorists, but was coordinated by the Pakistan government and U.S. contractor Blackwater. Abu Baseer claimed that U.S. contractor Blackwater is planning activities for inside Pakistan to “destabilize the country,” with Blackwater agents working to “make others look bad” using the “same devious practices used to create chaos in Iraq.” Abu Baseer claimed that “Pakistan rulers are providing all support to U.S. in this bloodbath” and that “the government is declaring every bomb blast a suicide blast to exonerate the [Pakistan] secret service and secret agencies like Blackwater...”
Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s Abu Baseer claimed that all of Pakistan’s problems, like those of Iraq and other nations, had the same “cause” - the failure to adopt what Hizb ut-Tahrir America calls an “Islamic state.” Hizb ut-Tahrir’s “Islamic state” has been clearly defined in the past with its rejection of democracy, rejection of liberty, rejection of women’s rights, rejection of religious freedom, and calls for the “death penalty” for “traitor” apostates who leave Islam.
Abu Baseer continued to attack democracy at the Lombard event as well...”
SNIPPET: “Concluding Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s Calls for Islamic Supremacism in Pakistan and the World - members of the audience conclude “Allahu Akbar” Hizb ut-Tahrir Pakistan’s manifesto calls for all male children at age 15 to get military “Jihad training” (page 37).
From Page 37 of Hizb ut-Tahrir Pakistan’s Manifesto - Calling for “Jihad” Training for all male children 15 years of ageResponsible for Equality And Liberty (R.E.A.L.) contacted the Lombard government and law enforcement authorities regarding Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s past calls for the “death penalty” for those who leave Islam as “traitors,” and urged them to contact federal authorities. No response was received on this issue. In addition, R.E.A.L. also contacted the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division on Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s pattern of Islamic supremacist threats against others civil rights. No response has yet been received on this issue.
The anti-democracy, supremacist international Hizb ut-Tahrir organization has a long history of making death threats both in the U.S. and around the world.”
