“In Idlib, Harakat Hazm gave up their positions to Jabhat al-Nusra “without firing a shot”, according to some reports, and some of the men even defected to the jihadists.”
“As a movement, the SRF is effectively finished,” said Aymen al-Tammimi, a Syria analyst. “Nusra has driven them out of their strongholds of Idlib and Hama.”
“For the United States, the weapons they supplied falling into the hands of al-Qaeda is a realisation of a nightmare.”

Obama’s Special Presidential Envoy John Allen, who is leading the forces of the Crusader alliance formed by America to spill the Muslims’ blood in Syria and Iraq, and his Assistant Secretary of State Brett McGurk visited Ankara on 09/10/2014 with communication specific to the planned military operations in Iraq and Syria, under the pretext of Islamic State (IS) militants. America announced through its official Dept. of State spokesperson as follows, “Turkey has agreed to support the efforts of training and arming the moderate Syrian Opposition”. US National Security Advisor Susan Rice also spoke about the current meetings between the U.S. and Turkey on October 11th on the NBC news channel saying, “Turkey has pledged that it will allow in the coming days for the United States of America and our other partners to use Turkish bases and territory in order to train the moderate opposition troops.” She said that it would be possible to use the facilities and capabilities in Turkey by the Americans and the coalition forces to carry out its operations in Syria and Iraq. Finally, another spokesperson of the US Dept. of State Jen Psaki said that a military delegation will be sent to Ankara this week to talk about the joint struggle against the Islamic State militants. Psaki also spoke of Turkey’s role adding, “There is no doubt that Turkey has a role to play, but we want to talk to them about their intentions, their absorptive capacities, and what they want to do.”
Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Turkish government Bulent Arinc said, “There is nothing new regarding Incirlik. Some of the facilities proposed by Turkey in the framework of the training – arming is just talk in the subject at this stage.” As for the Foreign Minister Mawlood Jawish Oglu, who made statements from New York indicating that the process is ongoing, saying, “No decision has been taken currently on the subject of Incirlik or any other matter.”
All these statements that seem ambiguous indicate the following: there is a plan to make Turkey a center for military and political operations to be undertaken by the coalition forces; the crusade-gang led by America against Syria and Iraq, where Turkish territories will be a place to train moderate groups! The ones that want democracy to face the public who wants to establish the Islamic State and its resistance groups. This plan aims to develop a practical mechanism that did not culminate into practice successfully in 2012 under the US-Turkish partnership coordination between the coalition forces. In spite of the absence of clear statements by Turkey and America, the planning is not limited to the use of the Incirlik Base to solely performing military air operations by coalition forces, but there are plans to also use the air bases in Erhac – Malatya, Diyarbakir and Batman, even though there were no clear statements made by the United States and Turkey at the moment.
Oh Rulers! We in Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Turkey address the rulers of Turkey and say to them: Until when will you continue with serving the colonial American plans in the lands of Al-Sham and Iraq where Muslims live? Until when will you allow the American administration and its armies whose hands are contaminated with blood to consider our military bases as their safeguards and military headquarters, and until when will you allow them to make military plans directly from our bases? Until when will you continue to take your position in the crusade army and draw the attention of the Muslims by your speech as an exalted Ottoman State? Today, we in Hizb ut Tahrir, as we always have been, will continue to speak the truth, even if our truth was denied and their lies were believed, and even if the traitor was declared faithful, and the faithful a traitor, the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم says:
«سيأتي على الناس سنوات خدّاعات، يُصَدق فيها الكاذب ويُكذَّب فيها الصادق، ويُؤتمن فيها الخائن ويُخوَّن فيها الأمين، وينطق فيها الرويبضة»، قيل: وما الرويبضة يا رسول الله؟ .. قال: «الرجل التافه يتكلم في أمر العامة»
“Certainly, some deceitful years will pass through mankind, in which the liar will be thought as truthful and truthful will be conceived as liar, and the betrayer will be trusted and the loyal one will be regarded as a betrayer, and the ‘Ruwaibidha’ will speak.” It was asked, “And who is the ‘Ruwaibidha’, O Messenger of Allaah?” He said: “It is the foolish one, who will speak on public issues.” (Ibn Majah)
Oh rulers! We know you imply the American interests when you speak of the Turkish interests. We, by the name of Islam, warn you of being collaborators in the bloodshed of Muslims in Syria and Iraq. If you make the Turkish territories as bases for this American war against Islam to launch, you will not be able to withstand the severe reckoning neither to the Ummah nor to Allah سبحانه وتعالى, the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth. You should know that Turkey is not a ground for NATO nor a base for the Kuffar. Turkey is an Islamic land; it was over the centuries the cradle of the Islamic Khilafah.

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.
Sheikh Abu Mohammed al-Maqdisi has issued a strong criticism of ISIS and its newly formed Islamic State: http://tawhed.ws/r?i=01071401
A Message to the People of Jihad and those who Love Jihad
By Sheikh Abu Qatada Al-Filistini (my Allah keep him firm and free him)
In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent, the most Merciful. And His aid we seek… All praises are due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon the Messenger Muhammed, the truthful one, his family and companions.
This is a letter that I write with deep sorrow, and if it were not for the covenant that Allah took upon the creation, I would have not rushed to writing this letter. By Allah, I struggled with myself not to release this letter as much as I could. However, I could not do so, fearing that I would conceal the truth that I believe. I tried my utmost in private and in public to repel all harm from all those affiliated with Jihad and the people of Jihad, however some of them are drowning in falsehood, evil and misguidance. Their main priority is to ruin the Jihad and not to do good towards it. The onus these words should be held by the command of the Islamic State of Iraq and their branch in the land of Ash-Shaam (Syria).
It has become clear for me with certainty and without a shadow of doubt that this group with its military and Islamic leadership, and whose actions testify that they are ‘the dogs of Hellfire’. And they are most deserving of the description of the Prophet (peace the peace and blessings be upon Him): “They kill the people of Islam and they leave the people of the idols [idol worshippers]. By Allah! If I live to see them, I will kill them like the people of ‘Aad were killed.”
I do not hesitate to pass this judgment, because of their evil actions. I tried as much as possible to forward advice to them until they stopped listening to the word of truth, advice and guidance. I say these words of mine to those who remain ascribed to them who have an ounce of Sunnah, Deen or Taqwa, fearing to spill the blood of the Muslims, and this is the Prophetic saying regarding such people.
This Prophetic description regarding such contemporary people leaves no need to research another name for them. Some will say that the Islamic definition of the Khawarij is not fitting to their creed, for the [Khawarij] believe that the one who performs a major sin is an apostate. However, the Prophetic description guided us to their attributes without consideration of their motives. The attributes of their leaders at the time of ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) are the same attributes today. Therefore, no one should debate except regarding the Prophetic ruling. Examples of such people are those who fight the people of truth, like Jabhat Al-Nusra may Allah protect them, their commanders and scholars, ameen.
Those that blame the leaders and command of Jihad, like [the wise] Al-Zawahari, or those that claim that he has changed [his manhaj] are those who play with words. This is because they have no experience regarding the path of Jihad, nor do they understand the belief of the people of Jihad, their words or method. It is strange that those claiming that Dr. Ayman (may Allah protect him) has a different ideology to Abu Abdillah [Osama] Bin Laden. Nobody listens to these people except those similar to those making such claims, who do not know the history of people or their achievements.
As for those that accuse others of misguidance because of their words and their terminologies, they are more deserving of being described as misguided, liars and ignorant. Even though all of this didn’t affect me much, their crime is what makes it incumbent upon us to announce our innocence and our disavowal, because the Prophetic description fits them.
I know that there will be insignificant men who will say many things. The least of this being “the man is in prison and knows nothing”. I say: “By Allah! I know more than what they know”. The case is not the lack of information I am receiving, but the lack of information that I can release. I am in a situation that I am not able to release statements every day, like others. For this reason the field has been left for the minors and the fanatics clinging to the Dawla like the ignorant clings to his tribe without understanding or awareness.
I am not addressing these people in particular in this statement. If the innovation in the religion spreads amongst the people, it is like the sickness of a dog weakening it and blinding his sight and insight. I thank Allah because from a different perspective, the matter reached this stage so the truth appears and the ranks are distinguished, and so the difference between the Jihadi groups and the extreme innovative groups is made known. I feel sympathy for our Mujahideen brothers in the land of Ash-Shaam for all the pain they feel as a result of the crimes committed at the hands of those who were once fighting the tyrants alongside them, but their madness led them to regard that the blood of their former comrades as Halal, out of ignorance and extremism.
I call upon all the Mujahideen and those who love them to carefully study the hadith of the Prophet (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon Him) “there will remain a group of my Ummah…”. This is so they can know that the continuous chain of this group is that which the criminals are trying to break by means of slandering the leaders of Jihad and their commanders and those who nurtured the Jihad with their efforts, sweat and blood. Nay! They even sacrificed their families, children and time. After this, these criminals come forth with such disastrous statements. Therefore, I thank the beloved students of knowledge in Jabhat Al-Nusra such as Dr. Sami Al-Oradi, Abu Maryiya Al-‘Iraqi and Abu Abdillah Ash-Shami, as well as others like Al-Mohaisni, for their patience and their efforts in clarifying the truth and repelling the ignorant statements of the ignorant. I know that I cannot mention here all of the people of knowledge in Syria, Ash-Shaam.
This Jihad is affected by the hating enemies just as it is affected by ignorant ones who love Jihad. [Those who love Jihad but are ignorant] harm the Jihad just as much as the enemies. Let the people of truth be patient with the pain they have faced from the crimes of these people. Let the people of knowledge and insight ponder upon the hadith of the Prophet regarding these people: “I will kill them like the people of ‘Aad were killed”. This saying was not implemented upon the Jews in Khaybar, in Bani An-Nadeer nor Bani Qaynuqa’. It was not implemented with Quraish. And they were all his worst enemies. This is because the madness of their dog can never be rectified, and the one who survives amongst them is harmful upon the Ummah of Mohammad (may the please and blessings from Allah be upon Him).
This is the case with the history of this group. In some cases one or two men would survive and quickly spread their misguidance in the deserts and the places where knowledge is scarce, which results in them returning to what they were once upon. These people today are the same group that existed in the past. There is not the slightest difference between the two. If a questioner asks about the ruling regarding them or the proof for this, they should refer to the people of Jihad. It is shocking that they have reached a level where they have taken the people of Jihad to be their enemies, ascribing the attributes of murtaddeen (apostates) to them, assassinating their leaders, considering their wealth Halal. After all of this, what is there left for the questioner to hesitate about!
These are my words regarding them. I will meet Allah with this stance, and if it were not for the benefit of Jihad, and if I could have kept quiet, I would have done so. By Allah, I only seek to advise you with these words. I only seek to uphold the Sunnah, repel the ignorant and claim the innocence of Jihad from them. These are my words which I say in a position that I cannot respond to the questions of the people, nor can I respond to those who oppose me or have doubts. One has little life left to worry about other than pleasing Allah as much as one can. The aforementioned is the opinion of other scholars who stem from the same roots. However, each individual has his excuses and his way.
May Allah guide all to what is pleased and beloved to Allah. May Allah give victory to Jihad and its people. Ameen, ameen.
And all praises is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
