This is great news. Hizb ut-Tahrir is a pro-terrorist organization which calls for the restoration of the Islamic Caliphate system to be imposed upon every human to “ensure the global dominance of Islam.” (1) HuT claims to be non-violent but continues to call upon Islamic states to use jihad against Israel. In addition, if the Caliphate system is restored the state is allowed to jihad to remove any obstacle (kufrs) to the “global dominance of Islam.” It is great that this anti-American, anti-Constitutional, anti-freedom and pro-hatred conference was canceled altogether. The Marriott Hotel is to be thanked for having the guts to look at the real evidence of the agenda of this hate-filled group. Freedom has won. Islamic slavery has lost.

Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s 2010 Khilafah Conference.
Saturday, 10 July 2010 11:03
Hizb ut-Tahrir America’s 2010 Khilafah Conference titled ‘Emerging World Order: How the Khilafah Will Shape the World’ on July 11th, 2010, has been cancelled. The cancellation on such short notice of this event which was scheduled to be held at the Chicago Marriot Oakbrook Hotel does not give the sponsors sufficient time to locate a suitable site in which to hold the conference. This event was to commemorate the destruction of the Khilafah on 28th Rajab, 1342 Hijri, and to discuss the viability and practicality of the Islamic Khilafah as the solution to mankind’s current problems.
Though, from the beginning Marriot Hotel officials were made fully aware of the nature of the conference; that it was being sponsored by Hizb ut-Tahrir, and the history of past events. In light of this, Marriot Hotel officials agreed to allow its facilities to be used to hold the event. As of this date, Marriot Hotel officials have not given any reason for the sudden cancellation. Since it is important to hold such an event near the date of the destruction of the Khilafah in Rajab, it was not possible to reorganize and transfer to an appropriate facility in a timely fashion.
Concerning this matter, we would like to present the following points:
- Hizb ut-Tahrir is known worldwide for the past six decades as a political party whose ideology is Islam. It has been a vocal proponent for the return of the Khilafah in the Muslim World and has openly discussed its ideas and distributed its literature and aims to carry the justice and mercy of the Islamic system to the world.
- Even though Hizb ut-Tahrir has an established track record of being a political party that promotes its ideas through political and intellectual discourse, it is apparent that there are those who are afraid of discussing its ideas or voicing one’s opinion concerning matters related to the re-establishment of the Islamic State. Ironically, given the current, global economic and political turmoil taking place in the world today, this is the most ideal time to discuss alternative solutions to the many problems now plaguing mankind.
- Conferences, lectures, debates and other public events are but a few tools to work with the Muslim Ummah and the greater non-Muslim society. The momentum of this da’wah and the global call for the return of the Khilafah is far too great to be impeded. Furthermore, the re-establishment of the Khilafah is an obligation from Allah and its return is His promise.
وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا
“Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession in the earth as He granted it to those before them…” [TMQ 24:55]
Because this is a duty and an obligation on Muslims, Hizb ut-Tahrir calls upon the Muslims to respond to the Call of Allah and His Messenger and to join the global work of re-establishing the Islamic State.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ
“O ye who believe! give your response to Allah and His Messenger, when He calls you to that which will give you life” [TMQ 8:24]
