London, UK, December 27 2008 – After months of a siege that starved hundreds of thousands, the Zionist occupiers of Palestine today went on to kill 205 men women and children in a wave of missile strikes on Gaza. This is proof that it is only a response from the Muslim armies of the region which can put an end to the Israeli entity’s aggression and massacres.
Taji Mustafa, Media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said: “Over many months, the regimes in the Muslim world have been silent over Israel’s siege of Gaza. The Egyptian regime even blocked aid to Gaza and the Saudi regime has appeased the murderous occupiers by promoting a so-called ‘peace process’, which is nothing more than a process to strengthen Israel’s grip on the region. Their appeasement has been repaid by this massacre.”
“No amount of negotiations, UN resolutions or condemnations will liberate Palestine from occupation. While the sincere Palestinians continue to bravely struggle against occupation, it is only when well resourced armies from Muslim lands, currently confined to barracks by treacherous agent rulers, are released that this land will be defended. Egypt has the military capability to defend the people of Gaza if it used its 220 F-16 fighter planes and 450,000 strong military.“
“Hizb ut-Tahrir will continue to call the people to account these regimes for their betrayal and call for the restoration of sincere Islamic leadership under the Islamic Khilafah so that the armies will be mobilised to put an end to the Israeli entities decades of occupation, ethnic cleansing and murder.“
