“All forbidden things in the caliphate will be stopped from day one. In the economic system, there will be no usury. We will close the banks from day one. From day one, alcohol and all forbidden things will stop. Now, to change the manufacture [of wine] to juice does take time, but alcohol will be thrown out from day one. Fornication, whatever, that will all stop. On the streets, there will be only the shari’a dress code. Anyone – Muslim or non-Muslims… A Muslim street has to be like that.”“Ismail Al-Wahwah, Spokesman Of Hizb Ut-Tahrir In Australia: We Will Establish The Caliphate, Instate The Shari'a, And Make Arabic The Official Language,” Middle East Media Research Institute, January 6, 2013, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/6911.htm.
