Hizb claims to be non-violent. Yet, this leaflet, especially the highlighted section, clearly is inciting violence and calling for Muslims to murder Jews.
‘And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out’
Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
The Jews are a people of slander. They are a treacherous people who violate oaths and covenants. They lie and change words from their right places. They take the rights of people unjustly, and kill the Prophets and the innocent. They are the most severe in their hatred for those who believe. Allah . has forbidden us from allying ourselves with them:
“It is only as regards those who fought against you on account of religion, and have driven you out of your homes, and helped to drive you out, that Allah forbids you to befriend them, then such are the Zalimoon (wrongdoers)” [TMQ 60: 9].
This is how they used to be. This is how they are now, and this is how they will continue to be. This region, especially for the people of Palestine, has suffered their evil for about fifty years. The martyrdom operations that are taking place against them are legitimate. The whole of Palestine is a battlefield whether it is the parts usurped by the Jews in 1948, or afterwards.
The summit of the Arab rulers in Beirut presented unanimously a peace initiative to those aggressors and usurping Jews. The Jews rejected it even before the conference was held. Even before the conference had finished and before the ink had dried, the Jewish state began to wage a new aggression against the people of Palestine. It went to extremes in its killing, destruction and eviction. This was a slap in the face to those rulers: a challenge, contempt and scorn for them, as if they are mere flies or dung beetles! Don’t these rulers feel any embarrassment or have they, as it seems, lost all sensation and any sense of dignity? In their humiliation they have become like the dead, (as the poet says):
Whoever becomes despicable, disgrace becomes easy
There is no pain from the wound of the dead
These rulers are not of the same type as the Islamic Ummah. Even the Arabs of Jahiliyyah before Islam used to reject injustice, and had a sense of honour and dignity. As for these rulers, they hear the cries of help from women, children and the elderly, and witness with their own eyes the dead bodies of Sabra, Shatilla, Qana, Gaza, and the West Bank as if nothing has happened. How evil are those rulers who have humiliated the best Ummah brought forth for mankind.
When it is said to them: What are you waiting for? Why do you not fight while your enemy usurps your land, kills your brothers and slaps you in the face? They say: we are not able because the enemy is more powerful than us! Then why do you not prepare, whilst you are the ones with the human force, financial wealth, vast lands, glorious history, divine Message and the ‘Aqeedah of martyrdom’? Why are the Jews who are cowards, the most severe in their love for life, who only yesterday planted their state on a small patch of land with only few numbers of foreigners, why should they be stronger than all the Arabs? Indeed not only that, but they challenge the whole Islamic Ummah!
The truth of the matter is that these rulers do not want to prepare for war, because they are agents of the kaafir western states. These states order them not to fight the Jewish state. That is why they do not think of fighting it or preparing to oppose it, even if it committed aggression against them and occupied their land. The issue is not about the inability to fight and uproot the Jewish state. Rather, the policy of those rulers is thus. The western states, whose agents they are, order them to be like this. The Saudi initiative of Abdullah, which was adopted unanimously by the summit in Beirut, is an American instruction and the Arab rulers have submitted to this instruction.
Indeed, those rulers are not from the nature of this Ummah. The peoples of the Islamic Ummah today show examples unparalleled in human history. They represent a proof against those negligent cowardly agent rulers who say: “We do not have the power to fight the Jews”. Only yesterday we saw the Muslims of South Lebanon in their fight against the Jews give a striking example of sacrifice, Jihad and martyrdom, which forced the Jewish state to undertake a humiliating climb-down.
Today the Mujahideen in Palestine provide us with the best of examples: The youth are competing in the martyrdom operations. Young girls have started to compete with the young men for martyrdom. Mothers are pushing their sons to become shaheed, and they make Sujood in thanks to Allah when they hear the news of the martyrdom of their sons. So how far are these rulers from these peoples? There is a famous saying: “As you are, so will be your rulers.” This means the time of these rulers has come to an end. A new dawn is beginning to rise on this Ummah in which Iman, Jihad, martyrdom and victory prevail against the kuffar, their agents and tools.
We wish to ask the Arab rulers: By what justification did you give up the land of Palestine, occupied by the Jews before 1967? You founded the PLO in 1964 to liberate what the Jews had occupied before that. Now you say: comprehensive withdrawal in exchange for comprehensive peace. Is withdrawing to the 1967 borders a comprehensive withdrawal? The leaders of the PLO, whoare known as the Palestinian Authority, have even given up the 1967 border. They are giving up everything the kaafir states are demanding them to give up.
Indeed these rulers, and with them the leaders of the PA, are all cheap agents. Not only that, they are traitors in every sense of the word. They are relinquishing the land of Palestine, and the sanctities of Palestine, to the Jews under orders from the Kaafir states of the West, especially America. They are acting out their parts to deceive the Islamic and Arab peoples, in order to carry through these initiatives, which are nothing but conspiracies. They call these conspiracies ‘the peace of the brave’, which is actually the ‘submission of the cowardly traitors’. This is not abuse, but merely a description of their reality. After a while this fact will be understood by those who have not understood it yet. But what use of such understanding when it is too late.
O armies in the Muslim lands:
Is it not time that you yearned for the Jannah? Has not the time come for you to seek the honour and dignity of this world and the Hereafter? Does it not shake you when you see, so close to your homes, the massacres inflicted on your brothers in Palestine at the hands of the Jews, who are the most severe in their hatred of the Muslims? Is not your primary function to protect Islam and fight the enemies of Allah, the Jews who have usurped the land of Israa (Night journey) and Mi’raaj (Ascension)? Is your function only to protect the thrones, ceremonies and festivals?
Allah (swt) has obliged you to remove these thrones (of these rulers) who conspire with the enemies of Allah against the blood of the Muslims. Allah has obliged you to help your brothers who are seeking your help in Palestine:
“But if they seek your help in religion, it is your duty to help them” [TMQ 8: 72].
Indeed, that you should destroy the monstrous Jewish entity. So regain the glory of Islam and the way of its great leaders. If you do that then your works will be written in letters of light in this world and the Hereafter. If you neglect this duty then you will bear the sin of remaining silent, and you be humiliated and disgraced in the Dunya and Akhira, and that is the manifest loss.
Are you not the best Ummah brought forth for mankind? Are you not the ones who spread the Guidance and Light to the world and banished ignorance (jahiliyyah) and darkness? Are you not the Ummah that vanquished Persia and Rome, and initiated the conquests and raised the banner of Islam in the regions of the world? How can the Jews overcome you, those who have been covered with humiliation and misery forever? Your rulers prevent you from fighting yet you do not rise against them, change them or reject them. Allah will ask you about this silence and acceptance of this oppression and acceptance of the oppressors.
He (swt) said:
“And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial) which effects not in particular (only) those of you who do no wrong” [TMQ 8: 25].
The oppressor, with his injustice, and the oppressed, who is silent about the injustice, will both be afflicted by the Fitnah.
“By the One in Whose Hands, is my soul! You must enjoin the good and forbid the evil or Allah will be about to send upon you a punishment, and you will make Du’a to Him and He will not respond (to you).”
It is obligatory on you to move like the living and not sleep like the dead. Remove those oppressors who have suspended the Law of Allah and suspended the Jihad in the Path of Allah. It is obligatory on you to push these armies to advance to the battlefield, show their bravery to the Jews, which will make those behind them flee and remove the filth from the land of Israa and Mi’raaj. As long as the spirit of sacrifice, Jihad and martyrdom has renewed in the Islamic Ummah, this will make her discard these agent rulers, who are not from them. Then she will establish in their place a Khaleefah, to whom she will give her Bay’ah on the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, to apply the Sharee’ah of Allah, and establish the Islamic Deen, and carry the Islamic Message to the world, and to declare Jihad against the usurping Jews, and against all those who help them in their aggression.
He (swt) said:
“If you help (in the cause of) Allah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm” [TMQ 47: 7].
