Pro-Islamism

HT Malaysia statement, May 2015

“If the people are suffering in Malaysia, it is because Umno is not applying the doctrines of Islam. If Umno leaders are rich while the people are poverty-stricken, it is because Umno is not applying the Islamic doctrine. If there is a high incidence of crime and immoral acts in Malaysia, it is because Umno is not applying the Islamic doctrine.”“Hizbut Tahrir: Umno has failed because it rejected Islam,” FMT News (Malaysia), May 5, 2015, http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2015/05/05/hizbut-tahrir-umno-has-failed-because-it-rejected-islam/.

“My message to you, my brothers and sisters: this propaganda war, play your part… call for the sharia wherever you are.

Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi (Interview with Al Jazeera, on an ‘Islamic Nation’, July 5, 2005)

“My project is to bring back to the Islamic Nation its glories and to establish the Islamic state that provides refuge to every Muslim, and this is a grand and large project that does not come by small vengeful acts. It requires the education of a Muslim generation, it requires longterm planning, it requires the participation of all the learned men and songs of this Islamic nation.” Nibras Kazimi, “A Virulent Ideology in Mutation: Zarqawi Upstages Maqdisi,” Hudson Institute, September 12, 2005, http://hudson.org/research/9771-a-virulent-ideology-in-mutation-zarqawi-upstages-maqdisi.

“The liberation of Al-Quds is the project of our Muslim Ummah as a whole and not the project of Qaedat Al-Jihad alone and it is a project of Qaedat Al-Jihad as have been expressed in its literature and speeches of its leaders, but there are many obstacles that prevent us from reaching our brothers in Bayt Al-Maqdis and the environs of Bayt Al-Maqdis. we ask Allah to remove it and facilitate our arrival to beloved Palestine, but the Ummah gathering around its sons the mujahidin in all the fronts can achieve these miracles Allah willing.”Casey Britton, “AQIM: Answers to Open Meeting with Sheikh Abu Abdul Ilah Ahmad,” WorldAnalysis.net, April 19, 2013, http://worldanalysis.net/modules/news/article.php?storyid=2197.
