Drowning in Treason and Agency to its American Master against a Revolting People who will not be Diverted by the World’s Conspiracies from Achieving their Goals
After a lot of talks were going on about the American and Western politicians training “The Moderate Syrian Opposition”, with constant calls from the traitor coalition to its masters for arming and coordination, we assume the right to wonder: Is it the training for weaponry, or training for subversion and treason of the sacrifices of the people of Ash-Sham and the blood of their martyrs?! Since when did America care about our blood, dignity and interests and it is the mother of crime in its homeland, so how about in our homeland? How will the issue be straightened while the resonant has been announced by the Syrian revolutionaries: “America: Hasn’t our blood quenched your hatred yet?!” We say to those who call for that or is silent: Have you forgotten “The Lawrence of Arabia”?! Or it seems that you have forgotten the crimes of Dayton and the criminals he has prepared and trained to commit various types of injustice and torture on the Muslims of Palestine to an extent that it exceeded the crimes of “Israel”, but it rather reached the limit for some who preferred to be arrested by “Israel” than falling into the dirty hands trained by even dirtier hands?! Are you satisfied that our situation is like that of those who get out of a muddy swamp so he cleans himself and puts perfume on it then goes to plunge into a new swamp?! Give us a place where America entered without encroaching it with havoc, destruction, and blood baths!! Have Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, and others transformed into heavens and permanent paradises or into tortures, moans, screams, blood, and carnage?! What is wrong with you? How do you make judgments?!
“Friendly Fires” are killing the Kurds in Ain al Arab (Kobane). Therefore, who is holding people accountable and who’s originally responding to the denunciation and condemnation?! Before this, there was the targeting of the sincere revolutionaries, which reached many factions with some under the excuse of fighting “terrorism” and “ISIS”!! Another American symphony about “information” about the Khurasan organization on the Land of Ash-Sham as an excuse ready for more crimes against Islam and the Muslims, so who is holding America accountable for what its hands are committing against the Islamic Ummah?! Is America working on preparing “The Moderate Opposition” to be the “Merciful Angels” or arms abiding by the orders of the American master as declared by the American politicians with their tongues and not the tongues of others?!
O Muslims in the Proud Ash-Sham:
The Lord of The Throne سبحانه وتعالى decided upon this matter in His Mighty Book by describing the nature of the conflict between us and the West as a conflict between Kufr and Iman… There is no meeting point in it or intersection… So, is there anyone who takes heed or considers this?! Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:
وَلَن تَرْضَى عَنكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلاَ النَّصَارَى حَتَّى تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ
“And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion”
He سبحانه وتعالى also said:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
“You who have iman! do not take the Jews and Christians as your awliya; they are the awliya of one another. Any of you who takes them as awliya is one of them. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.”
We in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Syria warn whoever puts his hand in the hand of the Americans and their criminal allies (the Arab rulers) from the wrath of The One Who Takes Retribution, The Overpowering Lord, then from the anger of the revolting people of Ash-Sham who have presented huge sacrifices to be ruled with the justness of Islam over the ruins of tyranny, and not by the injustice of those whom America works to prepare so that they obey it and become cheap tools used by it after removing the head of the system and keeping its muddy roots in control of all sorts of security and military criminal branches.
Ash-Sham is the home of the pious believers, who watered this blessed land with their pure blood. They will not be satisfied with half-solutions or any partial solutions, but rather they will not be satisfied without overthrowing the system with all of its symbols, pillars, and crimes, to rule upon its ruins with the justness and mercy of Islam in a state ordered by the Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم which the governing system in it will be the system of Khilafah. That is a promise of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and the glad tidings of His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and who is more truthful in saying other than Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم?
Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:
وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَــا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِـــن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّـــن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْــناً يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئاً وَمَـــن كَفَرَ بَـــعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ
“Allah has promised those of you who have iman and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their deen with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. ‘They worship Me, not associating anything with Me.’ Any who are kafir after that, such people are deviators.”

Summary translated by the dear brother @IbnNabih
New article by Shaykh Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi: http://tawhed.ws/r?i=01071401
Maqdisi say that he’s lately been in close contact with those that support ISIS, & heard their arguments & read some of their books, yet..
He says that much of the arguments/texts that they brought forth is things that he’s already heard/read in prison due to there being ISIS.
ISIS supporters in his own cell with him!This ISIS supporter had weekly contact with ISIS contacts in Sham etc,so he’s already heard it all.
He says that many tried to convince him that he should take back his statement/bayan against ISIS, since he’s out of prison now etc.
But the shaykh refuses to do so since no new information has come to him which changes what he wrote in his article.The facts remains still.
Facts being that ISIS has continued to refuse all efforts to solve the issues through shari’ah & they have refused to listen to any advice.
The Shaykh say that the one who bears responsibility for the spilling of blood is the one who refuses judgment by Allahs Shari’a (i.e. ISIS)
He also put the blame on those that initiated the spilling of blood, but again, main responsibility is those that reject the shari’a.
The Shaykh says that he dont wish to see any Muslim blood being spilled nor is he pleased with this except when defending against aggressors
He says that naturally all Muslims are happy of the progress taking place in Iraq against the Rafidha,yet some important questions comes up:
1) How will ISIS treat the other groups in Iraq? 2) What will they do with the weapons they captured from the Iraqi regime?
He’s afraid of the answers 2 these Q’s due 2 him not trusting the minds of those that hold these weapons(i.e it can be used against Muslims)
He was asked regarding the issue of Khilafah, he said that we all wish for the return of khilafah & breaking of the borders and…
and raising the banner of tawhid & removing the banner of idolatry. No one hates this except a Munafiq. BUT names & claims is one thing…
And realities on the ground is a different thing. And rushing to things before it’s time will be deprived from it’s success.
& I fear a declaration like this;will it be used to shelter the weak&oppressed Muslims?Or will it be used as a sword against other Muslims?
The Kavkaz Emirate was declared before this yet they didn’t oblige all Muslims to come under them. Will this new declaration of khilafah..
.. will it nullify the Kavkaz Emirate now? The same for the Afghanistan Emirate, what will this “khilafah” do with them??
What will this “khilafah” do with all the jihadi groups around the world? What will their blood be worth?
Especially considering that this “khilafa” vowed 2 split open with bullets any1 from the Muslims who differ with them?These Qs need answers!
“And we say that to those that incite against spilling blood;Dont think that your high voices&shouting will make the sound of Haqq be silent
Or that your threats & screaming & lack of manners & your aggression will silent our bearing witness on the truth, no & a thousands no’s!
We will remain sincerely upon this religion, guarding/protecting it against all deviance’s & extremism & others distorted people.
Either you fix yourself & repent & stop spilling Muslim blood & distort this religion, or we will be against you with tongues like swords.
We’ll strike you with clear evidences & you know well that prison didn’t stop us from speaking the truth, nor will we be silent now.
& we swear by Allah,that we wont let people distort this religion & spill Muslim blood,even if we get killed & people lie/defame against us
And we warn you from from distorting this religion & spreading fasad/corruption & spill the blood of the Muslims&Mujahidin, so fear Allah.
And this is (only) some of what I have to say and not all, that I transmit to you during this blessed month of Ramadan. /End
Note:All that I wrote was either the literal words of the Shaykh or summarized,if any1 finds mistakes with them please notify & forgive me.
May Allah aid our mujahideen!

Islamist brigades have grown exponentially in Syria’s rebel ranks over the past three years, partly due to the decline of the mainstream groups fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). In northwestern Syria, one of these ascendant Islamist factions is a group that analysts know very little about but that now helps shape the crucial battles in Syria’s coastal region: the Ansar al-Sham Battalions.
Ansar al-Sham, whose name translates in English to “Helpers of the Levant,” is mostly active in the Latakia and Idlib Provinces in Syria’s north, where I recently traveled to report on and study the Syrian uprising. It is clear that the group has grown in strength over the last three years. It has allied itself with other Islamist groups in the so-called Islamic Front, a major coalition announced in November 2013 that is now embroiled in heavy fighting against the jihadi faction known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL. Having successfully adapted to the shifting tides of rebel politics, Ansar al-Sham now seems set to benefit further from the ISIL being pushed back.
BUILDING SUPPORT BY HUMANITARIAN WORK
According to Aron Lund’s paper, Syria’s Salafi Insurgents: Rise of the Syrian Islamic Front, Ansar al-Sham formed out of eleven core battalions. Since Lund’s report was published in March 2013, its numbers have grown to over 2,500 men, according to Abu Mohammed, who leads the al-Zahir Baybars Battalion, which is a subfaction of Ansar al-Sham.
When traveling in the rebel-held areas of northern Latakia, I was able to see that Ansar al-Sham plays a crucial role in aid delivery in the areas where it dominates. The group has been catering to internally displaced persons, and it seems to have supplanted the international aid organizations in delivering humanitarian relief to some of these areas. White tents with the Ansar al-Sham logo prominently displayed are on show in the fields of northern Latakia.
Interestingly, the group also highlights its aid work in its propaganda, such as on its YouTube channel, to an even greater extent than its battles with the regime. It is as if the organization is following a strategy similar to the classic Muslim Brotherhood doctrine, seeking to win the population over through social work.
A SECRETIVE LEADERSHIP
The founder of Ansar al-Sham has so far been unknown. Many analysts have tried to point to to the London-based Salafi preacher known as Abu Basir al-Tartousi, since there are YouTube clips of him together with the group. But Abu Basir has denied being the leader of Ansar al-Sham and says he works with many groups.
Abu Mohammed, the Ansar al-Sham subcommander, told me that the group was originally founded by a man from Latakia City called Abu Omar. Abu Omar is an adherent to Salafi Islamist doctrine and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan who returned to his native city to take over the family sweetshop. Other sources confirm this: Salam Abdelkarim, who is the Latakia correspondent for the pro-opposition Shaam News Network and himself a native of Latakia, also knows of Abu Omar and says he was admired by the local Sunni boys because he refused to be intimidated by the regime and stuck to his religious convictions.
The sweetshop owner, though, is not the military strategist. Abu Omar seems more involved in providing guidance and funds, and there appears to be a close link between Saudi Arabia and Ansar al-Sham when it comes to the aid work. Military strategy instead falls to a Chechen member of Ansar al-Sham known as Abu Musa al-Shishani, who is wary of the limelight.
Despite the Chechen’s presence in its leadership, Ansar al-Sham remains overwhelmingly Syrian, consisting of a mixture of local army defectors, shopkeepers, workers, farmers, and artisans. While the group is not averse to foreign fighters, I have visited a number of local battalions attached to Ansar al-Sham and didn’t come across a single foreigner. According to Abu Jihad, second in command to Abu Mohammed in the al-Zahir Baybars Battalion, the fighters of Ansar al-Sham are organized in a military register (diwan) and each is paid a salary of $60 per month. Relative to what a Syrian citizen would earn doing national service, that is an acceptable income.
BALANCING BETWEEN THE FSA AND THE JIHADIS
Politically, Ansar al-Sham wants a Sunni Islamic state within Syria’s borders and rejects secularism. The group has managed to straddle the ideological fault lines of the uprising, even as Latakia became the scene of conflict between FSA factions and radical jihadis. In summer 2013, a group of ISIL members led by the Iraqi jihadi known as Abu Ayman al-Iraqi killed the rival FSA commander Abu Basir al-Ladhiqani, a member of the FSA’s Supreme Military Council, raising ISIL-FSA tension throughout Syria.
According to one of its commanders, called Abul Harith, Ansar al-Sham does not work with the FSA. But neither does it fight the FSA, and Ansar al-Sham has in fact forged local alliances with FSA commanders such as Abu Basir al-Ladhiqani, even though its members grumbled about his conciliatory policy toward the Alawites and perceived hubris.
Most Ansar al-Sham commanders that I interviewed clearly condemned the ISIL’s Abu Ayman al-Iraqi for killing Abu Basir al-Ladhiqani. Yet, on the ground at least, Ansar al-Sham did not break ties with the ISIL completely, despite considerable tension between them—partly, one suspects, because many of the ISIL’s members in northern Latakia were local Syrian boys who are connected to Ansar al-Sham members through family and social ties.
From the numerous interviews I did with its members, it is clear that many Ansar Sham commanders and fighters support the approach of the al-Qaeda–aligned faction known as the Nusra Front, which has decided to focus on removing Assad before building an Islamic state. The group has also had good relations with smaller jihadi factions, like the Ansar al-Mujahedin Battalion led by Sheikh Suqor or the Sham al-Islam Movement led by Abu Ahmed al-Maghrebi, which has a large North African contingent.
OPEN TO ALL ISLAMISTS
Moreover, the vagueness of Ansar al-Sham’s religious ideology makes it attractive to religiously conservative Sunni Syrians, including wealthy funders of the rebellion. Its close ties with members of Syria’s Sunni religious class, like Dr. Khaled Kendo, and the fact that its commanders do not actively embark on a program of religious indoctrination means that Ansar al-Sham is able to absorb Sunni Muslims of all persuasions. The group delivers religious lectures, but these are held by local clerics in touch with the community. Abu Mohammed and his battalion, which used to belong to the FSA network, is a good example of how Ansar al-Sham recruits. Abu Mohammed admits that he wanted to join Ansar al-Sham partly due to a lack of funding but also because of his own religious evolution. He met with Abu Omar, whose vision of Islam he deemed to be “more correct.” A decision to join Ansar al-Sham was then made by Abu Mohammed and his second-in-command, Abu Jihad, and their fighting men acquiesced.
The way in which Ansar al-Sham has played its cards and its presence in the important coastal region suggests that if the Islamic Front alliance manages to regain its footing after the infighting with the ISIL has ended, this medium-sized Islamist group could go on to play a larger role both in rebel politics and the Syrian civil war.
#Syria #Geneva2: Syrian National Coalition announces its separation from the Syrian people and Dedicates its Loyalty to America by accepting Geneva 2
As expected, the miserable National Coalition headed by Al-Jarba, submitted to external pressures especially America and Russia to attend the meeting of its General Assembly in Istanbul on the 17th and 18th January 2014 CE. It accepted participation in the Geneva II Conference held on the 22nd January, despite the conspiracy by everyone in broad daylight against the Muslims of Syria; adding itself openly and officially to the list of co-conspirators, and undertaking the dirty role ascribed to it, to keep the rule of Syria under the hands of America; of which the expense will be the transition of power from Assad to Al-Jarba, who will receive the orders of America instead. The first of which will be the task of fighting the Islamic project. This was the focus of Assad, Iran, Russia and Western countries as well as the rulers of the Muslims, and even Al-Jarba and his mentor who taught him “magic”, the Communist Michel Kilo, who had said of the armed fundamentalist groups and the extent of their danger: “It is a fatal mistake to ignore them.”
On this central subject, Kerry recently said: “The conference will discuss the fight against terrorism as a priority in the agenda at hand.” And it could be argued that the most important at this conference are two issues: keep power in Syria under the hands of America, and to strike a fatal blow to the Islamic project which is represented by the establishment of the Khilafah system in Syria. This was announced by both impostors: the Foreign Minister of Syrian criminality, Al-Mu’alim, and the impudent Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, who confirmed this in more than one statement. The announcement of the approval of the National Coalition to attend Geneva II was accompanied by the news that the administration of President Barack Obama asked the Congress to study the allocation of nearly $50 million dollars for potential international peacekeepers in Syria in the annual budget framework. This indicates that the approval of the coalition may be obtained by America before the announcement, and that the approval is going according to the road map of the American solution, and this solution is to send international forces to be effective on the ground, as mentioned by Ibrahimi before, to be along the lines of the international forces in Afghanistan, ISAF the multinational US-led, and which carries out multi-purpose dirty roles, which include: the protection of the rule of the new “Karzai” of Syria, and strike the Islamic project which is pursued everywhere under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
America is pursuing the awakening of Muslims throughout the world and is working to distort and strike it. We can see the tragedies of Muslims that are widespread throughout the world. It dragged with it countries around the world including the Muslim rulers and now it is Syria’s turn. The issue is bigger than Syria; it is about bringing the Islamic project in Syria to an end, and to abort it before its birth. From here, they want to repeat the bitter experience of Afghanistan, and to indulge in the blood of Muslims with a new alternative ruler under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
We turn to the members of the National Coalition, who still have some good in them to work to expose the conspiracy of the coalition against the Muslims, and to work to destroy it from the inside with all their strength, may Allah forgive them for their sin and of affiliation to the National American Coalition.
We also turn to the militant groups and to the components and the dissident army officers, we urge you not to respond to the invitation to join the national army, which America intends to create from your ranks in order to use you along with the international forces, just as in Afghanistan to strike all that stands in the face of its project, or those who seek to establish a Khilafah. And work to unite your forces under project that supports the establishment of the Khilafah State as is required of you by the Shari’ah, and just as the Ansar of Allah and His Messenger did, the first who Allah was pleased with.
We also turn to the Muslims in Syria of Ash-Sham in general and to the people of influence in particular, you are facing a universal conspiracy and severe deception. America, the number one enemy of Islam, backed by the international community chose a handful of amateurs in politics to be your representatives in the National Coalition, and they are far from being fit to represent you. You are believers who want the rule of Islam while they are secularists and they put their hands in the hands of America to strike the Islamic project. Even the Islamists from among them are upon the Western methodology. You have sacrificed blood and they traded with it. You suffer hardship of the siege and starvation, cold and fear, humiliation and death in the most horrific styles; they are languishing in hotels, they eat and become merry, if they appear on television screens they show sorrow and weep for you and compete with America in attacking the Islamic project. They side with the American camp against the camp of Islam and Muslims. As for what is required of you to do in the face of America’s plots and its allies against you, it is an essential matter. You are the popular base that has the first say in everything that happens, and you alone, so far, have exposed and defeated everyone who have a hand in the conspiracy against you, from the evil America, to its agent the butcher Bashar, to Iran’s intolerance, to Russia’s spitefulness, to the international community conspirator, to the treacherous rulers of the Muslims and especially Turkey, which is not far from you only a stone’s throw and the Gulf rulers who have warehouses stocked with weapons and ammunition, bought for hundreds of billions of dollars… And you have foiled all sly efforts and those continuously conspired against you, you can proclaim that you are against the Geneva II Conference, and you are against the American project and with the Islamic project, and that you are against the National Coalition and succumbing to the commands of America, and you are against the fighting that directs the weapons towards a Shari’ah prohibited target. And know that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has given you an opportunity to bring about change on the basis of the Islamic project and made the presence of the popular base emerge on the basis of Islam and the rule of Islam that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had worked to establish in Medina in which Musab (ra) told the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, “There is no house left in Medina that Islam is not mentioned in it.” And so is the case now in Syria, where there is no house left that the Khilafah and the rule of Islam is not mentioned in it.
O Muslims, believers in Syria of Ash-Sham: Hizb ut Tahrir in Syria, which is following the method of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم to establish the Khilafah, calls upon the Muslims in Syria to take their stance in the process of Islamic change that is desired, and address the people of power to unite and direct their arms towards the state of disbelief and to establish the Khilafah state, which extends the hand to them to establish the command of Allah سبحانه وتعالى, He سبحانه وتعالى says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ وَاتَّقُوا فِتْنَةً لَا تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْكُمْ خَاصَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ وَاذْكُرُوا إِذْ أَنْتُمْ قَلِيلٌ مُسْتَضْعَفُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ تَخَافُونَ أَنْ يَتَخَطَّفَكُمُ النَّاسُ فَآوَاكُمْ وَأَيَّدَكُمْ بِنَصْرِهِ وَرَزَقَكُمْ مِنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَخُونُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ وَتَخُونُوا أَمَانَاتِكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ عِنْدَهُ أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تَتَّقُوا اللَّهَ يَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ فُرْقَانًا وَيُكَفِّرْ عَنْكُمْ سَيِّئَاتِكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ
“You who have iman! Respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life! Know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that you will be gathered to Him. Be fearful of trials which will not afflict solely those among you who do wrong. Know that Allah is severe in retribution. When you were few and oppressed in the land, afraid that the people would snatch you away, He gave you refuge and supported you with His help and provided you with good things so that hopefully you would be thankful. You who have iman! Do not betray Allah and His Messenger, and do not knowingly betray your trusts. Know that your wealth and children are a trial and that there is an immense reward with Allah. You who have iman! If you have taqwa of Allah, He will give you discrimination and erase your bad actions from you and forgive you. Allah’s favour is indeed immense.”
O Allah, we ask you for your victory, support, cunningness and your power and rule and to bestow upon us a rightly guided Khilafah to change the situation to the better. Ameen.
