Western Support for the genocide
The most genocidal crimes on earth were not committed by a few war criminals. The perpetrators were always huge; and they enjoyed massive moral, political and military support from their people. In two World Wars, the European nations killed more than 70 million people and destroyed hundreds of cities and millions of homes. But the killers and the planners of the most genocidal World Wars in human history are still celebrated as war heroes. Taking part in such heinous war crimes is marked as patriotism and has become the part of the national culture. Hence Hitler need not burn the Jews in gas chambers by his own hands: he had millions to do that. In such a culture of colonialism, imperialism, ethnic cleansing, even the war criminals that dropped atomic bombs on Japanese cities for a wholesale murder are not condemned either. They too got their place in the US history as war-hero. The modern history has been reduced to mere propaganda works of the winning war criminals. The medieval Mongol killers did not enjoy such a good luck. In such moral, cultural and ideological perversion, the occupation, destruction and genocide in Afghanistan and Iraq are not reckoned as war crimes; rather still celebrated in the USA, Europe, Australia and Canada as a part of the democratisation process. People from 40 NATO and non-NATO countries joined the US aggression to perpetuate those war crimes there. For the same reason, the Israeli genocide in Gaza is not condemned in the ruling circles of the west. Rather, these crimes enjoy full political, moral and military support. Every bullet and every missile that are used to kill children and women in Gaza and destroy its hospitals, houses and schools are made with the money from the USA and other western partners. Hence it is impossible to condemn the Israeli atrocities in the UN or any international forums.
The moral collapse of the west has reached its lowest ebb; support for Israel’s genocidal war is the clear proof. Such a massacre and destruction received licence as Israel’s security right. Such moral collapse doesn’t come alone; rather breed a special brand of character, behaviour and attitude. This is why these imperialists cannot survive without wars of occupation, exploitation, genocide, Guantanamo Bay, Abu Gharib, water boarding, carpet bombing and drone attacks. Adolf Hitler was not the only criminal who could mobilise his countrymen to commit massive war crimes. Netanyahu could do, too. But President Barak Hussein Obama and other US presidents could add a global dimension to such crimes, especially against the Muslims. President Obama showed his special venom against the Muslims: which is quite natural in murtads who retrieve from Islam to non-Islam. President Obama could take the weapons of mass destruction more than 6 thousands mile away from the US border. The Nazi killing machines were mostly contained within the boundary of Europe. The children and women of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq did not drop any bomb or commit any crime on the US soil. But President Obama’s war planes and un-manned drones have already killed thousands of the innocent children, women and other civilians in those distant countries of Asia and Africa. Such a serial killer of global dimension has been identified as a figure of moral highness in the west and accepted as their leader. What an irony, such a war-hungry man has been honoured by Noble Prize for peace.
The anti-Islamic bias
Moral collapse always gets its brutal expressions through politics, culture, warfare and foreign relations. The west’s moral collapse thus could induce strong political, economic and military support not only for Israel, but also for all barbaric regimes of the Middle East. Hence brutal monarchs of Saudi Arabia, barbaric killer like General Sisi of Egypt and other tyrants are their closest ally. The western imperialists are now forging alliance with another brutal killer like Bashar al-Assad. Basher al-Assad has killed about 200,000 people in Syria, and used chemical weapon and is now dropping barrel bombs. In its recent war in Gaza, Israel has already massacred more than 2 thousands people and destroyed more than 20 thousands houses. About 10 thousands people are injured. About 75% of the dead and the injured are the children and women. Israel’s policy is clear. Occupying foreign lands, genocidal cleansing of the occupied land of its original people and continual increase of its geographical size are the fundamental elements of its policy. Israel could not do it alone unless received moral, political, economic and military support from the USA. The barbaric tyrants of the Middle East couldn’t survive either if the US protection was withdrawn.
For the west, establishing even the most brutal form of medieval monarchy is not a crime; rather morally acceptable. Hence, the Saudi monarchy with its barbaric suppression of basic human rights has been taken as the closet ally. It is not a crime either to launch a brutal military coup against a democratically elected government. Therefore, the military coup in Egypt against elected President Muhammad Morsi was warmly accepted in the US and Europe. But they consider it a great crime to establish an Islamic caliphate on prophetic tradition! The west is not ready to reconcile with the Qur’anic beliefs and Islam’s political roadmap. Sharia, jihad andjijiya and other Qur’anic prescription in any Muslim land is totally unacceptable to them. With the declaration of khilafa, the Muslims have crossed the red line that the west has drawn against them. Hence, they have started the war.
The old crusade revived
The imperialists never do war to save other people. They don’t have friends; only have strategic and imperial interests even in countries thousands of miles away from their border. They do wars to protect those interests. In such wars, they need subservient collaborators who could help them secure their gains. The US governments –like other imperialists do not hide those facts. Hence President Barack Hussain Obama could candidly say that the USA has strategic interest in Mosul Dam and northern Iraq. He could also reiterate that the USA will do everything to save those interests. And whoever supports its war, the USA supports them too. Like Israel, the newly established autonomous Kurdistan has turned out to be another launching pad for the imperialists in the heart of Muslim Middle East. Since Islam provide the most powerful ideological force for fighting against the aggressors, the imperialists have turned their guns against Islam too. Hence the US war has emerged as a full-scale religious war -in fact a new Crusade against the Muslims.
President Barak Obama has recently discovered some humanitarian causes to justify his barrage of air strikes against the Islamic state. Alleged killing of the Yazidies in the Northern Iraq is used as the pretext. If President Obama has any concern about saving innocent people then the US would have stopped military aid for Israel. After the World War II, horrendous destruction and genocidal massacre is not taking place around Mosul Dam or against the Yazidies in northern Iraq. It is taking place for more than a month against the people of Gaza. The killing of the innocent people in Gaza and destruction of its physical infrastructure are massive. One does not need to be a saint to protest against those crimes. But the US imperialists and their partners in the west didn’t show iota of moral strength to condemn that; rather showed continuous support. The Yazidies nationalists do not want establishment of an Islamic state in the area. Therefore conflict between ISIS and Yazidies can’t be ruled out.
The imperialists’ ancient crusade against Islam and Islamic caliphate has never ended. It had only some pauses, and still continues with the same old agenda. Hence after the end of Soviet Union and so-called Cold War, NATO still finds reasons to exist and continue its wars. The first crusade ended with the occupation of the holy land of Jerusalem and Masjid-al-Aqsa -the first kiblah of the Muslims. During the first crusade, the enemies didn’t have any collaborators inside the Muslim land, the crusaders were exclusively European. Hence these foreign enemies couldn’t dismantle Islam’s fundamental institutions like khilafa, sharia, jihad and other elements of social fabric. But its twentieth century crusade has many slave fighters from the Muslim lands. The nationalists, monarchist, racists, atheists, secularists and opportunists worked side by side with them. Hence, during the First World War, they were very successful to dismantle Islam’s basic infrastructures. Therefore, caliphate, sharia, jihad all disappeared. They could also create a Muslim World of 57 chicken states.
Sovereignty of a state proportionately diminishes with the diminishing size of the country. Therefore, to diminish the moral, military and political might of the ummah, the Muslim World has been divided into 57 pieces. During their long colonial rule, the imperialists’ success to convert Muslims to Christianity is minimal. But their success to cause de-Islamisation cum cultural conversion of the Muslims is huge. Hence Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)’s Islam with khelafa, sharia, jihad, jijiya, and pan-Islamic brotherhood does not exist among these cultural converts. Neither does survive Islam’s social, cultural and educational policies in any of the 57 Muslim countries. In fact, the Qur’anic Islam has become alien in all Muslim lands. In reality, the Muslim countries have entered into the new phase of internal occupation under the home-grown enemies. In the name of nationalism, secularism, civil and military autocracy, monarchy these rulers are preventing any chances of revival of the original Islam. They are also committed to preserve the legacy of colonialism –the fragmentation of the Muslim World. The USA and other imperialists find their strategic interest only in sustenance of this imposed status quo.
Like colonialism, imperialism, nationalism, racism, capitalism, communism, ethnic cleansing, gas chambers, World Wars, water boarding, atomic bombs, drones, Guantanamo Bay and many other state-sponsored western vices, state terrorism too took its birth in the west. True Muslims have holy war called jihad, but no terrorism. Terrorism is the trade of the non-religious political thugs and the war criminals. When a Muslim land is invaded, jihad becomes a religious obligation on every Muslim of that country. But jihad doesn’t exist in the western vocabulary. Hence they renamed it as terrorism to fit their political agenda. Now they are imposing the same deceitful concoction of a holy Qur’anic terminology even in the Muslim World. The imperialists are proud of their highly modernised weapons of mass destruction. Due to possession of such sophisticated killing machines, they proved to be the most brutal terrorists in human history. Since the US is the champion of such killing machines -has become the most terrorising force on earth. At the arrival of the European terrorists in American soil the native Red Indians were so much terrorised that they moved from one end of the continent to another to save their life. In such a long and arduous migration from North America to South America, they had to cross tough terrains of mountains, forests, rivers and deserts. Hundreds of thousands of them died on the way. The brutal Mongol killers couldn’t think of such killing machines: hence couldn’t think of ethnic cleansing. But the modern imperialists could ethnically cleanse most of America, Australia and New Zealand of their original settlers. The wild animal stops killing if their belly gets full. But the imperialists’ greed is endless; therefore their war never ends. So, the culture of state terrorism still survives with full force. Therefore, suffering of the Iraqi, Syrian, Palestinian and many others are not going to end very soon.
Fake Islam and fake Muslims
Islam does exist in its original form as was in the prophet (pbuh)’s time. Neither do the Muslims. A fake Islam has taken its place. It has created a generation of fake Muslims, too. Islam that incorporates sharia, khilafa, jihad, jijiya and sovereignty of Allah SWT –these fake Muslims, like their imperialist mentors, call it extremism. These fake Muslims do not believe in sharia, jihad, khilafa, jijiya, sovereignty of Allah SWT and other Qur’anic concepts. Instead, those who try to revive Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)’s Islam, they label them as the political enemies. To physically eliminate the practitioners of Qur’anic Islam, they have emerged as the state terrorists. Under the rule of these state terrorists, the punishment for any revival effort for prophet’s Islam is either death or long imprisonment. The whole state apparatus are being used to annihilate the Islamists. These states have courts and laws. They have police and army. But these public institutions are used only to protect the tyrannical occupants of the states. Arresting, oppressing, even killing the political opponents are accepted as common political norm. They can kill hundreds of unarmed protesters on the street without any accountability –as happened in recent years in Cairo, Dhaka, and Damascus. To the imperialists, they have proven their worth as the custodians of the divided Muslim World. They have also shown their skills in suppressing the Islamists. Hence, the US Air Force and Naval Ships are ever-ready to protect these state terrorists. So, the US has returned back to Iraq and Kurdistan.
Even the most barbaric crimes of these state terrorists are ignored in western media and in its ruling circles. The imperialists are not ready to consider their crimes as crime either. Instead, the USA and other NATO countries are ready to extend all forms of political, financial and military supports to the perpetrators. General Sisi of Egypt, the monarchs of Saud Arabia and General Musharraf of Pakistan are the perfect example of state terrorism in the Muslim World. The Egyptian state-terrorists could kill more than 11 hundred unarmed people in Rabaa al-Adawiya square in Cairo in 2013. The Saudi tyrants could kill more than 4 hundred unarmed Irani hajis in the holy city of Makka in 1987. In 2007, the military dictator of Pakistan General Musharraf could destroy the Red Mosque in Islamabad; and the Army could kill 154 students of the attached girls’ madrasa. Such atrocities of the state terrorists never reduced their worth in the ruling circles of the west, rather enhanced their usefulness as reliable instrument of suppression of the Islamists. The western imperialists have developed a strong working partnership with these state terrorists to resist Islam’s revival. These imperialists are now begging partnership with the brutal killers of Syria – President Bashar al-Assad to stop emergence of Islam as a world power. According to the recent UN statistics released on 23/08/14, Bashar al-Assad has already killed 191 thousands people in Syria. He has caused catastrophic damage to the most of the Syrian cities, and displaced its population. To continue the killing and fight the Islamists, Bashar al-Assad is also begging the west’s assistance.
The ruling clans of the state terrorists could successfully replace Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)’s pan-Islamic Muslim brotherhood with narrow tribal, racial and nationalist bias and could also raise Berlin wall like boundary of divisions among the Muslims. They could also replace Islam’s sharia, khilafa, jihad, culture, education and economy with the kufr prescriptions of the imperialists. Allah SWT’s sharia laws are thus thrown into bins or remained confined only in books; and the kufr laws made by the imperialist enemies receive the highest respect in all courts. Was it possible to show such disrespect to Allah SWT’s laws in prophet time? Such an act of disrespect to sharia laws takes away one’s Muslimness and out-rightly makes him a murtad. It is an act of war against the sovereignty of Allah SWT. Secular or non-Islamic states thus have become industries to make such rebel murdats in Muslim land. And the secular states are the most sinful and damaging legacy of the kafir imperialists in the Muslim World.
Caliphate: Islam’s powerhouse
The political power of Islam does not emerge from mosques and madrasas; it emerges from the Islamic khilafa. Khilafa is Islam’s recognised political infrastructure –established by the prophet (pbuh) himself and sustained and strengthened by his companions and maintained by the subsequent generations of Muslims. It is the most iconic institution of Muslim civilisation. Khilafa carries the symbolic package of Islam’s philosophy, power, institutions, judiciary, sharia, governance, unity, jihad and glory. It survived till 1924. It is an indispensable part of the Qur’anic roadmap. Every Muslim is a khalifa (viceroy) of Allah SWT. Andkhelafa (caliphate) is the continuation of prophetic mission to fulfil Allah SWT’s vision.
Allah SWT has trillions of other creations to do His ibada – along with all-time devoted angels. In the holy Qur’an, Allah SWT reiterates His Own testimony that whoever and whatever exists in the universe and in havens praises Him. Hence Allah SWT has no shortage of creatures to do such tasbih, tahleel and ibada. But humans are exclusively created for other task: they have to become His khalifa(the political viceroys) on earth so that His laws and sovereignty overwhelm over faiths and deities. Allah (SWT) announced such vision of His Own in the assembly of angels. As Allah SWT’s viceroy on earth, Muslims’ politics is very inclusive: it must address everything that is pertinent to materialise Allah SWT vision on earth. It entails guiding and managing the Muslims ummah’s statecraft, economy, judiciary, spirituality, education, culture, defence, commerce, foreign policy and other state and social affairs according to the Qur’anic roadmap. But a Muslims can’t discharge his duty as His political viceroys without the essential political infrastructure. Even a builder needs some tools to do his job. A Muslim’s job is to build a great civilisation –as was done by the early Muslims. In fact, Islamic caliphate is intended to provide such a political infrastructure and provide with the supportive environment. It is so crucially important that prophet Muhamad (pbuh) invested all the possible resources of the Ummah to build such a state from day one of his migration. About 70% of his companion had to sacrifice their lives to build it and protect it.
The enemies of Islam did not make any mistake to discover the real powerhouse of Islam. In fact, the enemies’ war against Islamic caliphate started from day one of its establishment. All non-Muslims of the Arabian Peninsula forged a grand coalition to launch a decisive war against this nascent state in Medina. Ten thousand tough Arab warriors were mobilised to destroy the small village state. The idol-worshipers of Makka and the Jews of Medina played the key role in the formation of such a broad coalition. But Allah SWT’s army descended on them in the form of fierce sandstorm to dismantle the enemies’ seize. They returned homes with deep frustration and never dared to come back again. In the Islamic history, it is known as war of ahjab (war of a coalition).
But the enemies’ dream for destroying Islam’s political powerhouse never died out: still survives with the same intensity. Hence, while invading the Muslim land in first Word War, the imperialists did not bother destroying any mosque or madrasa, but dismantled 13 hundred year old caliphate. In 1924, they could succeed with the help of Islam’s internal enemies like nationalists, monarchists, secularists, socialists and other cultural converts. When the Muslims lost caliphate, they also lost their political power and influence. Now the 1.3 billion Muslims look weaker than 55 million British. They do not have any say in any world body. Now the enemies of Islam keep constant vigilance to stop its re-emergence. Hence the west’s enmity is not only against Abu Bakr Baghdadi –the newly declared khalifa; rather with anykhalifa in any time! In fact, they have declared war against the very institution ofkhelafa. Can a true Muslim reconcile with such arrogance? They want to continue with the status quo of the Muslim world; and they call it stability. The Muslims could defend this Divine institution for 13 hundred years. But the failure of the modern day’s Muslims is catastrophic: not only did fail to defend it, but also failed to show minimum sanity to resurrect it.
Can USA win the war?
The US can start the war. But can they win the war? The US didn’t win its war in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. In its wars in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, the US had its huge land, navy and air power. They invested more time and resources in those wars than they did in World Wars. But now they have turned more cowardice. They have decided not to bring the soldiers to the warfront in Iraq and Syria. Therefore, how can they win the war without troops on the ground? They have realised that winning the war against Islamic caliphate is impossible: hence focussed only to reduce its speed of rapid expansion. They have adapted a containment policy. They are now bombing only from high altitude, and flattening the houses and mountains and killing the innocents. Israel launched its war from air, land and sea. The Israeli war planes, tanks, artillery and the gunboats bombed day and night on the small city of Gaza for more than one month. In 50 days’ war, they could kill and maim thousands of civilians. They could also destroy houses, hospitals, mosques, schools and offices; but couldn’t destroy Hamas. They couldn’t dare enter the heart of Gaza. Their attempt was foiled by few hundred Hamas fighters; and lost more than 60 soldiers. Hence Israel couldn’t attain its stipulated target of dismantling Hamas. Rather Hamas has emerged much stronger and popular.
The US army too, don’t dare enter the caliphate territory on the ground. They can only drop bombs from the air and kills and maims thousands of innocents. That will only boil the blood of Muslims all over the world to explosion level; and will hugely enhance the new recruitment for the ISIS. Thirteen years’ bombing in Afghanistan could kill several hundred thousand innocent people and flatten hills and houses. But couldn’t finish Taleban: rather helped Taliban emerge much stronger and popular. The US’s new war against the caliphate is a clear proof that its leaders have learnt nothing from its defeats in previous wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. They have failed to understand that it is not a war between two armies: rather the war between two ideologies. Can anyone win against Allah SWT’s ideology? It was easy to defeat Saddam or Gaddafi, but impossible to defeat the ideology of Islam. Pharaoh couldn’t do it in the past. The Persian and Roman Empires couldn’t do either. Can Obama do it now?
