On 25/11/2013 the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, declared that the Geneva II Conference will be held on 22/01/2014. He said: “We have a clear goal, which is the full implementation of the Geneva Statement issued in Geneva on 30/06/2012, and the establishment of an inclusive transitional rule, built on mutual agreement (between the parties to the conflict), and with full executive powers, including military and security entities.” The U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, whose country has been running the actions around the Geneva Conference and its secret and overt siblings for months, has welcomed to “seek to hold a conference for peace in Syria”, which he described as “the best opportunity” to form a new transitional government in the troubled country and take it out of its crisis. The National Coalition had announced its agreement to attend earlier this month, if a number of conditions set by them were approved. America’s Lakhdar, the UN and Arab envoy to Syria, reassured on the same day that the Geneva II Conference “will begin without preconditions”. It is noteworthy that there is still a dispute over who will represent the Syrian opposition in the conference.
America wants to ensure that from behind this conference, power is safely transitioned to it through a “governing transitional body which enjoys full executive powers, including military and security entities”. This is the fundamental clause from the Geneva I Conference, and it will be the main clause in the Geneva II Conference, to which the coalition has agreed beforehand. To safeguard this point from their perspective, it is necessary to eliminate the overwhelming Islamic Project by striking the “Takfiris” and “Extremists” to get rid of the Islamic project, which has increasingly swept the popular arena, as to be decided in the Conference. This is what made America accelerate in holding the conference, before the Islamic Project represented in the Khilafah can outpace their sectarian project of the region, known as America’s project for a new Middle East. Iraq was a first “model” in this project, and Syria is going to be the second model, while America has already extended its rope to drag Syria along. To achieve this, an American formulated international intervention is not farfetched, to implement the solution of Geneva II, so as to ensure the control over the areas of conflict, and to ensure the elimination of the Islamic Project, and then to ensure that the transition of power takes place according to the American project. The rest of what is being said of details, such as securing humanitarian passageways, providing the nutritional needs, releasing detainees and even demanding the ouster of “Chemical Bashar”, these are subordinate problems, no matter how hard they try to enlarge them, which can be overcome.
Oh Muslims Rebelling in Ash-Sham, the land of Goodness:
Hizb ut Tahrir has already sent down many leaflets, denoting the gravity of such a conference, reminding that “The Geneva II Conference is a Conspiratorial, Treacherous, Submissive American Conference that must be rejected under all Circumstances. Participation is prohibited by the Shar’ia, just as Silence around its Holding” and that “America Remains Insistent on Holding the Geneva II Conference. Beware of it, and Beware of its Envoy Brahimi, and Beware of its Agent, the National Coalition” and “Finally, the Coalition announced its Bow to Ford all the way down to their Feet. Whereas their Bow before only slightly Exceeded the Limits of their Knees!”
The position on the Geneva II Conference should be solid, evident, without disguise and unambiguous. Therefore all the Muslims in Syria, whom the Coalition claims to represent, have to declare their rejection of the conference, and their lack of acknowledgment of the decisions that will be approved of at the conference, as well as the rejection of the Coalition and that it does not represent them and has no popular extension. The militant groups have already announced that acceptance of participation in the conference is a treacherous action. They must complete this position by explicitly declaring that the Coalition is a creation of the West, especially America, which represents only those who founded it.
The conflict in Syria ash-Sham is now a conflict of civilizations, between capitalism and Islam. All of us feel the help of Allah Almighty for the Muslims in this conflict, who were able to stand in the face of an unprecedented international conspiracy. This is what should motivate them to increase their commitment to what Allah commands, so that His help for us will be complete, and our victory from the Strong, the Glorious will be undiminished. Allah Almighty grants victory to those who give victory to him honestly and sincerely. This requires that everyone from the general Muslims, their scholars, their nobles and the people of power head to support those working to establish a Khilafah. Hizb ut Tahrir continues reminding you of the method of the Messenger of Allah (saw) as the only method for its establishment. The Almighty said:
مَنْ كَانَ يُرِيدُ الْعِزَّةَ فَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ جَمِيعًا إِلَيْهِ يَصْعَدُ الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ وَالْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ يَرْفَعُهُ وَالَّذِينَ يَمْكُرُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَكْرُ أُولَئِكَ هُوَ يَبُورُ
“Whoever desires honor [through power] - then to Allah belongs all honor. To Him ascends good speech, and righteous work raises it. But they who plot evil deeds will have a severe punishment, and the plotting of those - it will perish.” [Fatir: 10]
