Islamist Group in America: We’ll Impose Sharia on Christians


HizbTahrirHizb ut-Tahrir, a group so radical that the Muslim Brotherhood won’t even touch it, lives and breathes in America. Part of the reason it’s a fringe group in the U.S. is because it is mostly honest about its objectives. For example, one of its websites answers a question about the status of Christians in an Islamic State by frankly admitting that Sharia is imposed upon them and other non-Muslims.

“Everyone who carries the citizenship of the [Islamic] state enjoys the rights and is bound by Shari’ah obligations,” the Hizb ut-Tahrir (HUT) website says.

The article later reiterates that the Islamic state “implements Shari’ah upon all of those who carry the Islamic citizenship whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims…”

Of course, Islamists view this as a great aspiration, otherwise they wouldn’t believe in it. The article extols the fairness of Sharia-based governance. The “basic needs” of all Muslims and non-Muslims are guaranteed, income is redistributed and health care and education are free. Non-Muslims can even be appointed to administrative positions and file official complaints if they are abused by authorities, at least in a way that isn’t consistent with Sharia.

The description sounds swell to those that don’t notice the important caveats.

Non-Muslims have religious freedom, as long “as they are within the general system.” Non-Muslims’ attire and diet are regulated according to their own religions, as long as they are “within that which the Shari’ah rules have permitted.”

The HUT article, written by a spokesman in Lebanon, becomes vaguer when discussing the more sensitive issues. It was written in English for a non-Muslim audience, after all.

On the question of Muslims who abandon the faith, it explains, “The rule of the apostate is applied upon those who have apostatized from Islaam if they are apostates.” That means execution, but that isn’t exactly the loveliest word you want to use when promoting your ideology.

HUT then glosses over the other aspects of Sharia law:

“The state implements the rest of the Shari’ah rules and all remaining Islamic Shari’ah matters in regards to the [transactions], punishments, testimonies, ruling and economic systems amongst others upon everyone. The implementation of these matters is the same in regards to Muslims and non-Muslims alike…”

Jihad is required for the Muslim population of this Islamic State, and non-Muslim participation in this jihad is encouraged. HUT says, “Jihad is an obligation upon the Muslims and training is compulsory” for anyone over the age of 15.

Military service is mandatory for Muslims and is optional for non-Muslims. However, non-Muslims must fight “under the banner of the Muslims” and not as a separate unit and cannot participate in a war against Muslim rivals. It’s okay for Muslims to kill other Muslims in war, but it is not okay for non-Muslims to kill Muslims in war.

HUT repeatedly declares its commitment to non-violence but, again, there are important exceptions.

[W]henever the disbelieving enemies attack an Islamic country it becomes compulsory on its Muslim citizens to repel the enemy. The Hizb ut-Tahrir in that country are part of the Muslims and it is obligatory upon them to fight the enemy and repel them. Wherever there is a Muslim amir who declares jihad, the members of Hizb ut-Tahrir will respond in their capacity as Muslims in the country where the general call to arms was proclaimed,” HUT’s website explains.

When its conferences in America receive negative attention, HUT is quick to point out that it isn’t trying to transform the country into a Sharia-based state. Like other Islamists, this sweet-sounding proclamation of innocence is conditioned upon ability. Its FAQ section says:

“In non-Muslim countries like the United States, Hizb ut-Tahrir works to cultivate a Muslim community that lives by Islam in thought and deed, whereby adhering to the rules of Islam and preserving a strong Islamic identity. The party does not work in the West to change the system of government, but works to project a positive image of Islam to Western society and engages in dialogue with Western thinkers, policymakers and academics.”

In other words, Sharia is only appropriate for Muslim-majority countries, so a Sharia-based America is a long-term goal but not a present task. HUT uses the U.S. as a launching pad to lead the worldwide Muslim community and achieve a resurrected Caliphate that can overpower the U.S.

“Hizb ut-Tahrir is determined to work within the Ummah in order to implement Islam and achieve its objective by endeavouring to gain the leadership of the Islamic Ummah so that she could accept it as her leader, to implement Islam upon her and proceed with it in her struggle against the Kuffar and in the work towards the return of the Islamic State as it was before, the leading superpower in the world,” its website says.

This isn’t any different from the 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood strategic memo that called for using the U.S. to establish a basewhich adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally,” ultimately resulting in “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers.”

The criticism of HUT by Zaid Shakir, a popular Islamist imam in America who preaches that the U.S. Constitution is inferior to Sharia, is illuminating. He tells Muslims not to “vilify” HUT. His disagreement with the radical group is limited to its criticism of the Muslim Brotherhood and its overconfidence in the Caliphate to solve all of the Muslim world’s problems. This light treatment of HUT stands in sharp contrast to his treatment of America.

On June 21, the founder of HUT in Chicago declared in Jordan, “Let Britain, America, and the entire West go to hell, because the caliphate is coming, Allah willing.” Shockingly, the Argosy University-Chicago uses him as an adjunct professor and he is a Visiting Research Scientist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

On July 12, a HUT spokesperson led a rally on the Temple Mount and declared on videotape, “Allah is greater! Let America be destroyed!” and “Listen, Obama, we are a nation that does not bow down, and the Caliphate will return!”

An official from the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, describes HUT as a “very marginalized group, a very fringe group.” Even a HUT spokesman in Illinois admits, “[W]e understand that our ideas are not mainstream.”

That does not mean HUT should be forgotten about. It has a major international network that holds large rallies around the world. It even held a 1,000-strong pro-Caliphate demonstration in the Ukraine. Its website lists branches in the U.S., Britain, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt, Pakistan, Palestine, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Morocco.

HUT has expansive resources, it just hasn’t chosen to invest them heavily in America…yet.

      What you mean support it? All Muslims totally, completely, and unconditionally submit to it when they submit to the will of Allah under the penalty of death for blasphemy and apostasy! As the will of Allah in essence is Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law.

  • Demetrius Minneapolis

    Put it this way, the day sharia is “imposed on America” is also the day that myself and a few fellow veterans join together and form a vigilante group and start picking off clerics. And don’t think we would be alone.

      Doesn’t have to go that far. If they think we’re frying all their food in lard or sneaking in pork bits in their halalalalalalal food,they’ll leave of their own accord.

      If you work in food service, spike the hajjis’ food with pig meat/grease at every opportunity.If you hand one of them a paycheck, make sure you hand it to them in a jar of pickled pigs’ feet. If you live next to one, send him a suckling pig as a housewarming gift. If he gets upset, claim it’s a cultural misunderstanding.

      It is.

      Muslims believe they can impose their culture on us. In that, they are gravely mistaken.

      Two things we know about Muslims are that every single one of them must make a pilgrimage to Mecca to be taught their pedophile leader’s murderous exploits, and that they are averse to pigs and dogs.

      Let’s make them as unwelcome as possible here (for instance, I performed a “satanic baptism” on a Muslim infant as a child,that will really rile them up) and if we have to then later we can expel them and/or send some of our guys over to Mecca and turn it into the world’s largest roach motel by spreading AIDS and/or radioactive material where every one of them will feel its effects just as they have done in our countries with their seventh century barbarism.

        if you feed them pork, they will sue you, and a jury of traitors, directed by a traitorous judge, will award them all of your money. we need to get rid of them, not insult them.

  • bj affordable

    All I can say is that; may well the Caliphate return, but if it does, said Caliphate will not know what world it will be faced with in its return. The Seventh Century died 1400 years ago. The future Caliphate may well face a different adversary. Not us, but a future West. A West… that is so angry, suffering, hateful and ready to take ultimate revenge.

    • Icebow

      I wonder how a Leftie-facilitated mentally-challenged western caliphate would fare against a future alliance between China (then massively militarily advanced), Japan (abandoning pacifism), and India (having dealt with its local infestation and so developed a taste for such sport). It has been said that this is the Pacific century. Let’s face it, anything is better than Mohammedanism, except perhaps atheism; no, they’re of equal falsehood.

      • knowshistory

        why are you hating on atheists? we are allies in our struggle to avoid enslavement and genocide. Christians are annoying pests, but I dont know any atheists saying Christians are equal to islam. they aren’t. Christians may annoy us, but muslims kill people.

        • Icebow

          Hating on? We?
          I have myself somewhere talked of accepting atheists as temporary allies in the counter-jihad, but I shall always regard atheism and Mohammedanism as equal and opposite poles of spiritual ignorance. I am not a Christian, but I have Christian friends, and I frankly spit on your disgustingly contemptuous ‘annoying pests’ description.
          I think there are plenty of atheists who regard Christianity and Mohammedanism with equal contempt.
          I now strongly resist debating reality with atheists (unless they are call themselves deists or Buddhists), since I have come to regard them as mad.

          • knowshistory

            you richly deserve the fate islam is planning for you, but the rest of us don’t. so, like it or not, we are still allies. it would be nice if you weren’t so hateful.

          • Icebow

            I have of course alluded to a temporary alliance. I’m not hateful, though I suspect that you may be, in some self-taqiyya‘d way. See the permanent quotation on Bare Naked Islam about playing chess with a pigeon: in my experience, it applies also to atheists.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group so radical that the Muslim Brotherhood won’t even touch it, lives and breathes in America.

    Here we go again, this loon is claiming Hizb ut-Tahrir is a radical Islamic organization consisting of radical Muslims, which is absurd since all Muslims, according to the texts and tenets of Islam are jihadists in one form or another, so how can he claim that Hizb ut-Tahrir is radical when all Muslims are jihadists? He can’t unless he is a gullible useful idiot.

    As a matter of fact, the whole notion of the ubiquitous so-called “moderate Muslim”, which he implies every time he labels other Muslims radicals is a glorious political correct myth, since the first and foremost prerequisite of Islam is the total, complete, and unconditional submission to the will of Allah under the pain of death for blasphemy and apostasy. Not to mention that the will of Allah in essence is Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. Thus, for a person of Islamic persuasion to be considered a true “moderate” in the Western sense of the word, they would necessarily have to disavow the will of Allah, which at the same time would instantly make them blasphemous apostates and also earn them a death sentence in the process. Moreover, they wouldn’t become so-called “moderate Muslims” at that time. Instead, they would instantly cease being Muslims in the eyes of Islam. Yet, he and his politically correct ilk stupidly claim that so-called “moderate Muslims” somehow make up the preponderance of Muslims in the world. Absurd!

    By the way, what true religions compel faith via the penalty of death for blasphemy and apostasy the same way only Islam does? The answer is none of them, which proves unequivocally that Islam is not a real religion but instead a cult, and because the will of Allah that all Muslims totally, completely, and unconditionally submit to under the pain of death for blasphemy and apostasy is in essence Sharia, which again is Islamic totalitarian law, in reality Islam is a very aggressive and destructive totalitarian cult posing as a so-called “religion of peace” to gain a foothold.

    Furthermore, taking into account Islam’s doctrine of abrogation, which is universally accepted throughout Islam and the infamous sword verses of the Koran, the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels via the imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. Hence, all Muslims, not just the ones this loon deems to be radicals, must be shipped out of this country ASAP and the sooner the better.

    Furthermore, if this writer wants to write about Muslims and Islam, then he should at least have a basic understanding of the texts and tenets of Islam, not the texts and tenets of the lamestream-mainstream press.

      “all Muslims, according to the texts and tenets of Islam are jihadists in one form or another” This is a fact. No matter how ‘peaceful’ a muslim acts – they still bring that evil murderous ‘religion’ with them to spread to the next generation. Let all muslims stay in their own countries.

  • Boots

    The reason most liberals support Islam is that they are kindred spirits. Liberals will ally themselves with anyone seeking to take our freedoms away. The similarities between liberalism and Islam? Most important is that they both believe in submission. In the case of Islam it’s submission to Allah which is enforced through Sharia and brute force. Liberals believe in submission to government, and as we are now learning, liberals are willing to use any means necessary be it the courts, IRS, and any other government body with the ability to hurt those not willingly submitting.

  • Joseph

    Put it this way: the god of the islamist is a false god….arranged by Satan’….the prophet muhammed is a false prophet and he was a murderer from the beginning….the Islamic people may have aspirations like any other people but the mandate to commit murder via jihad, the relative ethics to lie to further their cause, their men ‘pedophiling’ young girls in the name of their religion, their stated purpose to kill all jewish people, to kill all christians, and their actual doing or completing said purpose as witnessed throughout the world by the many beheadings…the cruel and unusual punishments such as amputations, their use of democratic process to impose theocratic rule….and the list could go on…..Apparently we are in a life and death struggle for the soul of mankind….winner take all. When this is over either Islam will not exist or Christianity will not exist, and by ‘Christianity’ I do not mean all the various denominations but rather the Bible will not exist and YHVH will be deposed on this planet as GOD…..choose your side…there is no neutral ground. all gays and lesbians need to side with me as at least under the view point I have via how I see Biblical scripture you have recourse for a life, whereas under shariah law you will not live….I know people who take exception to that but at least until these doctrinal views are cleared up ( which may never happen) our gays and lesbians should be allowed to live their lives and not be murdered…..Secularism is best in a mixed culture such as we have in America today. Secularism would not even exist here if shariah law had been here first instead of the Mosaic law upon which our constitution of the USA is based. And what becomes of the native Americans. I know they have been treated unfairly by unscrupulous men under the banner of Christianity but good men and women of conscience are working hard to change that, albeit we are several decades late…I’m sorry, I have not been here that long. So I say…there can be only one…only one God and that god is YHVH.

  • therealpm

    Hizb ut-Tahrir are just being honest about Islam’s intentions instead of propagating the usual Taqiyya. Islamic doctrine states quite clearly that all non-Muslims must submit to islamic rule, that is sharia law, under which of course they will suffer intense discrimination, be severely persecuted and be generally treated as little better than slaves.
    I’m actually quite pleased there are those Muslims such as Hizb ut-Tahrir and Anjem Choudary who portray the true face of Islam, warts and all. Of far greater concern are those such as CAIR, who share their goals but present a smiling face which so easily fools gullible Western politicians.

  • spyeatte

    So what is the expected conversion date for America to be under Sharia law? I suspect blood will be spilled in that effort…

  • TNSteve

    They better wait until Obama gets our weapons. All 300 million plus of them. That is not a threat, but is a logistics problem for some. Like most liberals and Islamic terrorists they insist you agree and follow their rules. Not going to happen, even with Obama leading from behind and putting roadblocks to our freedoms at every turn. My State has passed a law forbidding the use of any foreign law, so I guess they will start in a northern, gun hating super liberal State or in California.

      All states are bound by the US Constitution to honor any treaty approved in Congress and signed by the President. If SCOTUS rules that any provision of the treaty is NOT a violation of the Constitution there is no legal recourse available. That is the UN strategy Hillary is using to attack our 1st amendment. If armed resistance arises, the National Guard, Dept of Homeland Security and US military are available to settle the dispute.

      None of this is accidental, all of it is planned with all the bases covered. A slim majority of the American public is volunteering for its own servitude in exchange for bread and circuses.

    folks the statement, “Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group so radical that the Muslim Brotherhood won’t even touch it,” is a little off the MB and HuT often hold caliphate conferences together and their key speakers interchange between them both , look here in Australia where HuT had the head of tghe MB here speak at their caliphate conference then the boss of HuT here spoke at the MB conference in egypt only 2 weeks ago to help them organise a fightback against the non radicals in that nation , theres a fine line between them at times but most of the time they over lap quite well

    “Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group so radical that the Muslim Brotherhood won’t even touch it”– now that’s a mouthful.

    The Hizbo’s and the MuBro’s are pretty much two sides of the same coin. Being a Hizbo doesn’t exclude one from being a MuBro or visa versa; its a bit like separating the “moderate Muslims” from the “Islamists”. These divisions among Muslims do not exist, we shouldn’t let wishful thinking interfere with the fuggly reality.
