Pro-Islamism

HT Britain article, May 13, 2015

“[The concept of extremism] is flawed because it rests on a false premise: the lie that the more Islamic a person is, the more of a potential threat they pose. ‘Deradicalisation’ has therefore come to mean making Muslims less Islamic and more ‘westernised’ or secular, using coercive means.”“Cameron’s latest counter-extremism policy attempts to challenge Islam,” Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, May 13, 2015, http://www.hizb.org.uk/current-affairs/camerons-latest-counter-extremism-policy-attempts-to-challenge-islam.

Statement, May 2015

“The Al-Murabitoun movement pledges its allegiance to the caliph of Muslims Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (IS leader), thereby banishing divisions and dissent within the (Muslim community).”Agence France-Presse, “Belmokhtar's jihadist group in N.Africa vows allegiance to IS,” Yahoo News, May 14, 2015, http://news.yahoo.com/al-qaeda-linked-belmokhtar-group-n-africa-claims-001449854.html.

Hassan al-Madhoun, HT spokesman in the Gaza Strip, May 2015

“The West knows that the return of the caliphate is inevitable, therefore it supports regimes that suppress the nation’s movement, represented by the revolutions in Muslim countries, such as in Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and others. The nation is alive, and there are Western fears of a return to the rule of the Islamic regime as a result of the Arab revolutions. The caliphate ruled Muslims for 1,300 years. Calling for its return is a tenet and is an idea that does not fall outside the framework of Islamic societies.”Hana Salah, “Hamas struggling with emerging Islamist parties,” Al-Monitor, May 28, 2015, http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2015/05/hamas-gaza-support-salafist-groups-islamic-state.html#ixzz3c7SXvGaP.

Hassan al-Madhoun, spokesman for HT in the Gaza Strip, May 2015

“Destroying the Islamic caliphate led to the loss [under one flag] of Palestinian land and the rest of the Arabs. Only the Islamic caliphate will fill the political vacuum experienced by the Arab and Islamic nations. It will liberate Palestine and unify the Arab and Muslim nations in light of the sectarian rivalry witnessed in the Arab region. The state of the caliphate is a state with real state authority and underlying jurisprudential, intellectual and legal structures.”Hana Salah, “Hamas struggling with emerging Islamist parties,” Al-Monitor, May 28, 2015, http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2015/05/hamas-gaza-support-salafist-groups-islamic-state.html#ixzz3c7SXvGaP.
