Press Release
The disbelieving West, led by America, exploits the Copts and Immigrant Christians to attack Islam and implement its colonial goals

It has been reported that some so-called called immigrant Copts (namely Copts who were under a covenant of protection of Egypt's Muslims and immigrated to America) were amongst those who produced a film about the Prophet - sallallahu alaihi wassalam - peace be upon him - abusing him in it. These associations labeled as ‘immigrant Copts' are suspicious, having close links with U.S. intelligence. America uses them as a pretext for intervening in the affairs of Muslims, for putting pressure on their governments and the public opinion, and for exploiting them for political blackmail and executing plans.

America is using Copts, Christians in general and other so-called minorities in the Muslim world as fuel to create excuses for political intervention, followed by military intervention under the pretext of protection of minorities and prevention of persecution. Copts and others are often deceived by that, and think that the disbelieving West moves because of their religion or their human rights, as they claim. The West is in fact not concerned about them; rather, it only cares for its interests. In the end, once it achieved its objectives, it will abandon them and leave them behind; bringing them only shame, humiliation and bloodshed.

Had the Copts, the Christians and others lived under the protection of a nation other the nation of Islam, it would have not left any of them after its victory over the Europe Christian armies during the Crusades. It is rather a nation that governed by the laws (Shar') of Allah, who addressed them saying:

[قَاتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلَا تَعْتَدُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ]

"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight against you, and do not transgress. Indeed Allah does not love the transgressors."

So no assault is done against non-Muslim citizens as long as they have submitted to the authority of the State and do not rebel against it. We Muslims do not accept any abuse to any one of the prophets of Allah, peace of Allah be upon them all. Whoever abuses them we consider him a disbeliever in our creed, turning people away from Islam.

The crime of some of those labeled as immigrant Copts, in abusing the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, is a political issue in the first place. It must be addressed by a State that governs by Islam, and applies the law (Shar') of Allah. It should stand firmly in the face of America and the other colonial powers that fight against Islam, embrace those who insult the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, Islam and Muslims, and that exploit them and motivate them to serve their goals. Moreover, America is a belligerent state which is an enemy to Islam and Muslims. So, we should close its embassy, sever treaties with it, and reveal its plans for attacking Islam and Muslims by using dhimmis (non-Muslim citizens). We should warn the dhimmis of America's exploitation of them, and its trial to sow discord and incite the Muslim masses against them leading to dire consequences; thus using their blood to achieve their own interests.

This event has proved again the great need of this nation for the Khilafah "Caliphate" that protects its territories, and is keen about its religion and sanctities, and strikes with an iron hand against whoever is tempted to insult its religion. The principal task of the Islamic State, the Khilafah "Caliphate" State, is to carry the Islamic call. Its foreign policy must revolve around this task, and its foreign relations should be built on this principle. So, any block that prevents Islam from reaching people's minds, and any obstacles placed in its way through oppression, distortion, fabrication or mockery of Islam: namely its creed, Sharee'ah, concepts, criteria, systems and convictions; this requires of the State to challenge it with all the available legitimate means and styles. It is for that purpose Jihad for the sake of Allah was decreed.

[وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ]

"And those who do wrong will soon know the kind of reversal they will receive."
