Rishi Sunak's Government Bans Hizb ut Tahrir and Slanders it with Falsehood and Lies, Brandishing the Sword of "Anti-Semitism" in the face of those who Oppose the Massacre Committed by the Jewish entity in Gaza

Last Thursday, January 18, 2024, the British government put the request to ban Hizb ut Tahrir to a vote in Parliament, where the ban was approved by a few members who were present at the session. This is after they carried out what was falsely called a debate of the proposed resolution, while in reality it is a set of political speeches to deceive the public opinion, in order to give license to the Jewish entity to continue its daily massacres against the people of Palestine, and to brandish the sword of “anti-Semitism” in the face of public opinion so that it does not demonstrate or demand resistance against the occupation.

Thus, quite simply, the party is banned after it has worked openly in Britain throughout four decades, as it was not recorded that it carried out any material action in Britain or anywhere in the world during this period. And those biased against it, were unable to prove their lies and slander that Hizb ut Tahrir has anything to do with terrorism. And today, here comes Rishi Sunak's government with the miserable excuse, that the Hizb is a terrorist organization because of its position on the Gaza war!

Rishi Sunak’s Security Minister was unable to present at the session real evidence of the existence of terrorist acts, but rather what he said was that the Hizb called on the Muslim armies to rise and move and fight the army of the Jewish entity. As for the rest of his “evidence”, it is nothing but the same broken record of the Zionist lobby in the United Kingdom, who provided him with reports speaking about the fears of British Jews regarding the pro-Palestine demonstrations! This is his “evidence”, while the rest of his talk was a political speech containing false slander and fallacies about the Hizb being anti-Semitic, and a re-narration of events as fed to him by the Jewish entity. For them, history began on the morning of October 7th, 2023, as if the conflict with the occupation on the land of Palestine had not existed before that day! They also repeated the allegations of the Jewish entity media about the killing children and the rape of women, while the reports and video testimonies of confessions of the occupation soldiers and settlers confirm that orders were given to them to bomb the settlements with everyone in them. The occupation police were also unable to find the victims of the alleged raping. Suffice it to recall the scandal that US President Joe Biden fell into when he conveyed the lie of the Jewish entity about the beheading of children, and then it turned out that they had lied to him and to the world.

The audacity of Rishi Sunak’s Security Minister in misleading the public opinion is shown when he overlooked the statements and actions of the politicians of the Jewish entity that were reported by the international media and published in newspapers, and which truly require prohibition and punishment, including:

•Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement, who said: “We will turn Gaza into a deserted island.”

•Netanyahu also cited a Jewish narration that says: “Now go and destroy all they have, and do not leave behind man, woman, child, or infant, or oxen, or sheep, or camels, or donkeys.”

•Minister of Heritage Amihai Eliyahu’s statement to drop a nuclear bomb on Gaza.

•A statement by the Minister of Finance Bezalel Smotrich, who called for the deportation of the people of Gaza.

•A statement by the Minister of National Security in the Jewish entity, Itamar Ben-Gvir, that the only thing that will enter Gaza are hundreds of tons of explosives that will be dropped by the air force.

•A statement by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, who said: “We are fighting animals in Gaza.”

•A statement by the spokesman for the Jewish entity’s army, Daniel Hagari, that the focus is on destruction, not accuracy.

•A statement by the president of the entity, Isaac Herzog, that talking about the irresponsibility of civilians is incorrect.

•Knesset member Merav Ben Ari’s statement that “the children of Gaza are the ones who brought this on themselves.”

•A statement by the former Jewish entity’s ambassador to the United Nations, Dan Gillerman, that the people of Palestine are terrible, inhuman animals.

•A statement by the famous researcher and media personality Mordechai Kadar that the likening of Palestinians to animals is an insult to animals.

In addition to the statements of zionist journalists, media professionals, and researchers hosted by channels affiliated with the Jewish entity, who incite the complete destruction of Gaza.

Perhaps the Security Minister’s ambition to be Prime Minister instead of Sunak (as he stated repeatedly) made him turn a blind eye to these statements by the politicians of the Jewish entity, and rather eager to offer the ban of Hizb ut Tahrir as a sacrifice to the Zionist lobby, which seems to be running loose the corridors of the Palace of Westminster, so that perhaps he will find their favor next time.

As for the rest of the speakers who attended the session, their talk was no more than political flirtation among themselves, as they did not challenge any of the Minister of Security’s allegations, but rather they added to his lies with even bigger lies, like some of them saying that Hizb ut Tahrir receives support from Iran! And them saying that killing and exterminating Jews is the party’s priority! In addition to their denial that the party transmits the voice of the suffering of the people of Palestine to Muslims in Britain! Also the speakers did not hesitate to express their dissatisfaction with seeing demonstrations in support of the people of Palestine, and they did not hesitate to describe them as “vile” and describe those who attend them as “the worst parts of society.” They repeated the Zionist propaganda that they were demonstrations of hatred and anti-Semitism, while in reality they were demonstrations against the Jewish entity occupying Palestine, which is what Hizb ut Tahrir in Britain explicitly stated in its previous statements. But the speakers’ bias toward the Jewish entity is clear as day where some of them declared that they have participated in demonstrations “against anti-Semitism,” which in reality were demonstrations biased towards and in support of the Jewish entity, where the flags of the Jewish entity were raised from beginning to end, and the slogans, comments and opinions of those who attended were largely about the ongoing war in Palestine, as was clear in the interviews that were reported from within the demonstrations.

This is the policy of double standards. When the Jewish entity’s army bombed the Baptist Hospital in Gaza and killed more than 500 victims who were in the hospital’s courtyard, Rishi Sunak doubted the source of the missile that struck the hospital, and that is because the Jewish entity wanted to evade responsibility for the bombing. But when the army of the Jewish entity subsequently bombed the rest of Gaza’s hospitals, schools, bakeries, mosques and churches, and bombed the migrants as they moved between its cities, cutting off water and electricity from them, and did not hesitate to adopt and justify all these actions, Rishi Sunak no longer saw that these atrocities were worth his attention!

It seems that the politicians of the current British government are Zionists to the core. Even the “government commissioner for combating extremism,” whom the Minister of Security thanked for the advice he provided about banning the Hizb, is blatantly biased against Islamists. He was carefully selected for this position, as he has a history of working in institutions that are extremely hateful of Islamists, such as those closely linked to former US President Donald Trump. Muslims have not forgotten the infamous travel ban that Trump imposed on Muslims coming to America. In addition to other research centers, the government commissioner moved in between before assuming his position. These institutions that are immersed from head to toe in incitement against the ideas of Islam, against Muslim immigrants, and against Islamists. Rather, this government commissioner's hatred has reached the point that he considers the term "Islamic" synonymous with the term "extremism," as he stated in one of his articles for the Heritage Foundation. How can the responsibility of such a position be given to a person who is politicized and biased against Islam and Muslims in this way?!

This is the Rishi Sunak government and its politicians who decided to ban Hizb ut Tahrir; They carry a hidden hatred, and they are tools of a Zionist agenda, which wants Muslims in Britain to stand by and watch the killing and starvation of their brothers in Gaza and not to be angry about that nor to demand that the Muslim armies move to support them. Rishi Sunak's government wants Muslims not only to be devoid of the feelings of Islam, but it wants them to be completely devoid of feelings so that nothing of their humanity remains!

It is clear that Rishi Sunak's government is wearing the guise of the Conservative Party, while in reality it is an extreme right-wing group similar to the neoconservatives who took power in America in 2001 and announced the infamous "War on Terror" campaign, due to which millions of Muslims were killed. Let us remember that one of the most important elements of that campaign was the policy of frightening Muslims in the West from objecting to America and its allies’ killing of their brothers in Muslim countries. This is the view of Rishi Sunak’s government towards Muslims in Britain today. It wants them to watch the killing of children and women of their brothers/sisters in Palestine and remain silent and do nothing! It wants to make Muslims in Britain walking bodies without souls, using the same logic expressed by George Bush Jr. when he told the world, “You are either with us or with the terrorists,” so every Muslim has become for them a terrorist until he says what they say!

Rishi Sunak's government has been unable to confront the argument with argument and provide evidence for its slander, and therefore it will fail in front of the public opinion. It has brought society into a stage of intellectual repression, and has unknowingly unleashed state institutions to act with society on this basis. Such actions, which are blatantly contradictory and corrupt, erode the morale of societies and kill their vitality. Everyone sees the massacre taking place against the people of Palestine, and everyone sees that what the government did was an attempt to silence the Hizb from exposing the crime, and to frighten Muslims from collective thinking. It’s as if Sunak’s government is saying something like: “You Muslims are forbidden from thinking about all solutions”! Everyone knows that the Hizb’s actions over the past four decades were intellectual and political actions that had nothing to do with terrorism, and therefore this ban will mark the entry into the phase of striking the public opinion whenever it contradicts the opinion of the authority.

Hizb ut Tahrir’s call is clear and simple; The renaissance of the Islamic Ummah, its unity, and the return of its Khilafah (Caliphate) as it was during the time of the Companions, in word and deed, and this has become a firm pillar in the heart of every Muslim who loves Islam and cares for its interests. Therefore, the call of Hizb ut Tahrir will remain, by Allah’s will, steadfast, bright and pure, making its way to its goal, all for sake of pleasing Allah.

So be patient, our people in Britain. Be with Allah, Glory be to Him, for He is sufficient for you and He is your Supporter, and remember that your deeds should be sincere for His sake, Glory be to Him. Allah has promised Muslims empowerment again, as we were given good tidings by His Prophet (saw) and Allah will not break His promise, so be of good tidings. He has mentioned to us in the Holy Qur’an about the changing conditions of countries and nations. He reminded us that the whole matter is under his dominion, before and after the rise and fall of countries.

Allah (swt) says:

﴿الم * غُلِبَتِ الرُّومُ * فِي أَدْنَى الأَرْضِ وَهُم مِّن بَعْدِ غَلَبِهِمْ سَيَغْلِبُونَ * فِي بِضْعِ سِنِينَ لِلَّهِ الأَمْرُ مِن قَبْلُ وَمِن بَعْدُ وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللهِ يَنصُرُ مَن يَشَاء وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ * وَعْدَ اللهِ لا يُخْلِفُ اللهُ وَعْدَهُ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لا يَعْلَمُونَ * يَعْلَمُونَ ظَاهِراً مِّنَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ عَنِ الآخِرَةِ هُمْ غَافِلُونَ

Alif-Lãm-Mĩm *The Romans have been defeated* in a nearby land.1 Yet following their defeat, they will triumph *within three to nine years.1 The ˹whole˺ matter rests with Allah before and after ˹victory˺. And on that day the believers will rejoice *at the victory willed by Allah. He gives victory to whoever He wills. For He is the Almighty, Most Merciful *˹This is˺ the promise of Allah. ˹And˺ Allah never fails in His promise. But most people do not know *They ˹only˺ know the worldly affairs of this life, but are ˹totally˺ oblivious to the Hereafter.” [Ar-Rum 1-7].
