Egyptian army must intervene in Libya to end the bloody massacres and prevent intervention by foreign powers
Amongst the activities of Hizb ut-Tahrir to support our people in Libya, Hizb ut-Tahrir in Lebanon carried out a demonstration at the Egyptian embassy in Beirut where Mr. Osman Bakhach, Director of Hizb ut-Tahrir’s Central Media Office addressed protestors. He welcomed the revolution in Libya and the heroic stance of our people who revived the braveries of the revolution of Omar Al-Mukhtar against the Italian colonization. He also appealed to the army officers who are still at the side of the criminal, Gaddafi, to join the ummah in her fight against colonialism and its agent. He emphasized the rejection of foreign intervention and that the whole ummah is expecting the victory of the revolution in Libya.
He also appealed to the Supreme Council of the Egyptian armed forces to help our people in Libya by participating directly in putting an end to the bloody massacres committed by the tyrant Gaddafi in Libya, and to work for preventing any foreign intervention in the affairs of Muslims. He expressed his amazement at the military build-up undertaken by the European states and America, and even India in front of Libya, and the fact that Libyan pilots were obliged to resort to Malta instead of Egypt and Tunisia. Bakhach stressed that the Islamic ummah is one ummah, for her deen is one, her Lord is one, her Prophet is one and her Qiblah is one. He called upon Muslims in Egypt to support the Egyptian army in challenging the Western colonial ambitions and in working to liberate Palestine from the evil the Israeli state as their ancestors did before when they confronted the campaigns by Crusaders and the Tatars.
He said that the victory of the revolution in Egypt would not happen except by the establishment of the khilafah State, which will restore Egypt as the capital of the Islamic ummah and the Kinanah (supply of armies) of Allah in His land.
He also praised the people of Tunisia for their role in starting the spark of the revolution that quickly moved to Egypt, Libya and other countries. He urged them to not let their resolve weaken until their revolution is crowned with the establishment of the Khilafah, and to realize that the issue of Muslims is the same in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and the various Muslim countries. He added that the revolutions that broke out are the best witness of the unity of the Islamic ummah that lacks only the establishment of the Khilafah so as to liberate the ummah from the colonial system imposed by the West after the criminal Ataturk demolished the Khilafah on 03/03/1924.
And he warned the opposition movements, which he viewed as “decorative opposition” from trying to patch the systems that were born from the womb of the Sykes-Picot agreement by demanding partial patchy reforms that give more life to these regimes that had lost legitimacy; they have rather to raise the slogan of the radical change by throwing out the manmade constitutions and raising the banner of unification (tawheed) only.
He concluded by addressing the ummah: “Hizb ut-Tahrir belongs to you and it is with you. The party and its shabab have vowed to struggle against the tyrant rulers. It urges you to put your hands with its hands so that we all struggle to raise high the word of Allah and to establish the Khilafah that will restore to the ummah her pride and dignity, and rid her of slavery to the West, which has ambitions over her resources and wealth.”
