London, UK, April 4, 2008 – As part of a nationwide campaign – ‘Stand For Islam’ – against the recent attacks on Islam across Europe, at mosques across the UK today, tens of thousands of Muslims will receive a leaflet from Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, entitled ‘Only the return of the Khilafah (Caliphate) will silence those who attack Islam ‘. It addresses the Dutch politician, Geert Wilders film, the re-publication of the disgusting Danish cartoons, and other attacks designed to provoke and incite hatred against Muslims.
On the claims that these latest attacks are an expression of ‘freedom’, it states, "In their hypocrisy they contradict this ‘freedom’ by calling for a ban on the hijab, the niqaab, political parties who speak out against western imperialism, and now the Noble Quran, yet more proof that this is a war on Islam and not a war on terror!" and that "governments in Europe that support a war on Islam, occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, and support tyrants in the Muslim lands welcome this propaganda which fuels their imperialist adventures."
It derides claims that secular Europe is some bastion of tolerance, stating that this is "laughable in the face of the attacks by secular extremists against millions of Muslims. In truth, Europe still suffers from its historic persecution of minorities. When it comes to Islam they make emotional rants and spread lies, whilst it is the Quran that appeals to the rational mind to think and debate about man’s creation and purpose. This western ‘freedom’ permits the open abuse of other people and their beliefs and can never bring harmony to any society, as Islam successfully managed to do over centuries."
On the reaction of the spineless governments in the Muslim lands, it notes that "no Muslim country has severed its diplomatic ties with such countries. Their embassies in the Muslim world are accorded full respect and not one of their ambassadors has been reprimanded. Oil from the Muslim lands continues to provide the energy for machines that print this filth. No regime in the Muslim world has withdrawn its money from these countries banks in order to shake their economies."
The leaflet concludes by calling on Muslims to support the re-establishment of the Khilafah which will "stop the relentless slander of Islam; for the Khilafah stands not for any throne, material power or personal interest, but for Islam. Violating Islam’s sanctities is an act of aggression against Islam for which the Khilafah would mobilise and respond with all its strength."
