Hizb ut-Tahrir at the Oak Lawn Illinois Hilton on July 19, 2009

Posted by Glezele Vayne on July 13, 2009


The Investigative Project has alerted us once again to the latest activities of the pro-terror organization, Hizb ut-Tahrir. I wrote about them several weeks ago in my post, Sharia: Coming to a Neighborhood Near You.

“The conference initially was scheduled for the Aqsa School in Bridgeview, Ill. But the school withdrew, claiming Hizb ut-Tahrir officials “misrepresented themselves.” An official said the group approached the school in late April claiming it wanted to hold a bazaar-type event in July that would involve selling traditional food and clothing. School officials said that when they learned the real purpose, they cancelled and refunded the group’s deposit.”

“HT seeks to fuse an ideology combining orthodox Islam, Marxist-Leninist economics, anti-Semitism and opposition to Western democracy into a political program to bring back the Caliphate. Despite its public rhetoric about nonviolence, Hizb ut-Tahrir has “precisely the same ideology and objectives” as al Qaeda, Gruen told IPT News. And HT has a much larger membership base to recruit from, she added.

While it refrains from carrying out terrorist actions itself, Hizb ut-Tahrir glorifies jihadism and excoriates the terrorist organization Hamas as being too soft on Israel. In a leaflet posted on its website July 1, HT said that if the Caliphate were in existence, all of “Palestine” would be rid of “the usurpation of the Jewish occupiers” and brought “to the fold of the Islamic state.”

    The quotes from the conference seem to be rather radical. Why won’t the US follow countries like Egypt, Russia, and Germany and ban this group? We hear all the time that domestic terrorism is on the rise and dangerous, but where is the action against it?

      I’ve come to agree with Professor Eugene Narrett, who has said repeatedly that our leaders are as dumb as foxes. These fanatics serve their purposes, all of which are not entirely clear to me. But for sure, destabilization is in the interests of TPTB. These nefarious purposes are behind Islam being allowed to run rampant, why recognition of our constitutional rights are suspended, while at the same time our borders are porous, why nothing ever gets fixed. A cold shower of reality would be to watch some of George Carlin’s routines on the government.
