‘Is it time for the chaos, unruliness and aggression orchestrated by the heads and elements of the security apparatus to come to an end?!! Or do they think that the people are slaves and have no dignity…?!!’. With these words we began our letter to the Mayor of Bethlehem Jibreen al-Bakri so that he may perhaps be shy before Allah and put an end to the conduct of the head of the protection apparatus in Bethlehem Hijazi Jabari. However it is the habit of the Palestinian Authority (PA) to provide a cover for the crimes of its individuals and this is despite the fact that they do not gain from that anything apart from disgrace and shame in the life of this world and a painful punishment in the hereafter.
The Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir stood in Bethlehem last Saturday on 22/08/2015, might with Islam and powerful with their Lord, demanding that the security apparatus put an end to their aggression against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir and their properties and to stop their hounding and harassment of them which they do for no other reason than the fact that they invite to the way of their Lord with a Hizb whose Da’wah haunts their masters in the West. It is because they go forth carrying the Khair (good) with their word in spite of what they see before them in terms of gatherings that the authority has been prepared for them to strike fear into them. So the security apparatus of the PA which is pathetically weak in the face of the occupation suppressed a peaceful protest, arrested dozens and beat the elderly and the best of people without any shame before Allah Ta’Aalaa or the people.
Indeed the PA with its hostility and enmity towards the Da’wah for the Khilafah is only in effect being hostile to Allah the King of the Heavens and Earth. It does not serve anyone other than its masters in the West and so it implements all that is dictated to them by the hateful and spiteful West which doesn’t want Islam to have any standing. This is whilst they cannot sleep due to the support and public opinion that supports the establishment of the Islamic Khilafah that will demolish the thrones of the tyrants within the Islamic world. So the West does not want the voices of those calling for the Khilafah to be raised in the blessed land of Palestine out of a fear that this will reach the Muslims and those in whose hands lies the power within the armies of the Ummah. For this reason the PA fights against the Da’wah for the Khilafah and the carriers of its Da’wah whilst the elements of the PA represent no more than fuel for the western war against Islam whether they are aware of that or not.
O People of the Blessed Land:
The PA has already undertaken its greatest of crimes when it relinquished the Blessed Land to the Jews and it then followed that crime with security coordination which is considered in accordance to the custom of revolutionary forces to represent the greatest form of treachery so that it has become in accordance to this cooperation an additional security arm for the occupation. Corruption has seeped into all of its departments and parts to the point where it has become closer to being a gang that rules by thuggery than an authority that governs by the law. This is in the case where its elements and leaders aggress against the people, confiscate their wealth without right and practise blackmail in its most ugly of forms… This is in the absence of any point and purpose for the law which they wrote with their own hands and then claimed deceitfully that it protects and upholds it. In addition to that is its protection and fostering of the despicable and institutions of corruption that target our youth and daughters. The ‘Festival of Colours’ that was held only a few days ago in the town of Ramallah where young men and women threw paint over one another in a scene that was shameful and disgusting… This is on top of the harassment of the people in regards to taxes and the means of their living and attaining their sustenance.
Indeed the establishment of justice amongst the people cannot occur unless it is established upon both the powerful and the weak. The Messenger of Allah (saw) said:
أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّمَا أَهْلَكَ الَّذِينَ قَبْلَكُمْ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا إِذَا سَرَقَ فِيهِمْ الشَّرِيفُ تَرَكُوهُ وَإِذَا سَرَقَ فِيهِمْ الضَّعِيفُ أَقَامُوا عَلَيْهِ الْحَدَّ وَايْمُ اللَّهِ لَوْ أَنَّ فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتَ مُحَمَّدٍ سَرَقَتْ لَقَطَعْتُ يَدَهَا
“O People, the people were indeed destroyed before you because if one of their noble’s stole they would let him go free and if one of their weak stole they would implement the prescribed punishment upon him. By Allah if Faatimah the daughter of Muhammad was to have stolen I would have cut off her hand” (Muslim).
This justice is not established amongst the people except by men who have Taqwaa and are sincere… We therefore call the Muslims to establish the Khilafah upon the methodology of the Prophethood that puts the ruler and the ruled equally upon the same footing before the Ahkaam (rulings) of Islam so that justice and fairness is established amongst the people… These regimes have made the people taste many types of humiliation, degradation and aggression in addition to the violation of sanctities. You are capable of putting an end to their crimes whilst Allah is with you and the upright believers.
However we remind the PA with what we stated in our press statement: “The exploding barrels were not able to silence the people when they revolted against the crimes of the regimes and their oppression. The crimes of the PA and the aggression of their security apparatus against the people represent the fuel which will set alight within it the fuse of revenge and at that time it will never be able to find a refuge to seek shelter in…”
So the Palestinian Authority should not be deceived by the support of the West and the Jews towards it. Allah (swt) said:
((فَأَمَّا الزَّبَدُ فَيَذْهَبُ جُفَاءً وَأَمَّا مَا يَنفَعُ النَّاسَ فَيَمْكُثُ فِي الْأَرْضِ))
“As for the foam, it vanishes, [being] cast off; but as for that which benefits the people, it remains on the earth” [Ar-Ra’d 17].
And the good end belongs to those who have Taqwaa. Allah (swt) said:
((تِلْكَ الدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ نَجْعَلُهَا لِلَّذِينَ لَا يُرِيدُونَ عُلُوًّا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فَسَادًا وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ))
“That home of the Hereafter We assign to those who do not desire exaltedness upon the earth or corruption. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous” [Al-Qasas: 83].
We conclude our address with what we concluded our letter to the Mayor of Bethlehem when we said: “Verily we warn you of the punishment of Allah and His anger. It could be that you are being heedless in respect to this however Allah is not unaware and heedless of you.
Allah (swt) said:
وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَارُ * مُهْطِعِينَ مُقْنِعِي رُءُوسِهِمْ لَا يَرْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِمْ طَرْفُهُمْ وَأَفْئِدَتُهُمْ هَوَاءٌ
“And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror]. Racing ahead, their heads raised up, their glance does not come back to them, and their hearts are void” [Ibraheem: 42-43].
The PA and its departments must know that the might and honour of Islam that lies within our breasts refuses for us to bow low to other than Allah Ta’Aalaa and we will continue to go forth to establish the Deen of Allah in the earth in order to bring you and all of the people out of the darkness of injustice and the rulings of falsehood to the light of Islam and its justice… in the shade of the Khilafah upon the methodology of the Prophethood as the Messenger of Allah (saw) gave us glad tidings of its return. The oppression and suppression of the regimes only increase Hizb ut Tahrir and its Shabab in strength and fortitude to persevere and continue upon its path… This is what has made the people gather around us and support our Da’wah… And by the permission of Allah Ta’Aalaa the voice of Islam within the blessed land will remain powerful until Allah wishes to grant His victory and at that time none of the criminals will ever be saved.
((وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ))
“And those who have wronged are going to know to what [kind of] return they will be returned” [Ash-Shua’raa: 227].
