Hizb ut-Tahrir conference displays anti-Semitic and anti-Christian materials

Three weeks ago, I noted that Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamist organization was coming to Judea and Samaria. This past week, the group held a convention in Chicago, where they were quite open about their goals.
More than a dozen issues of a Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) newsletter called The Shield were obtained from the conference by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. The publication repeatedly condemns interfaith "outreach initiatives" and shows HT believes in the death penalty for Muslims who leave the faith.

HT pushes a radical ideology that is similar to Al Qaeda, although the organization claims it does not carry out terrorist attacks. It has glorified jihadism and excoriated the terrorist organization Hamas as being too soft on Israel. In a leaflet posted on its website July 1, HT argued 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."


If Muslims are trying to conduct a dialogue in which non-Muslims are treated as equals, this is unacceptable. Judaism and Christianity, it says, "started hundreds of years after Abraham and Jesus, and are great distortion of what they actually taught." In this context, Allah warns Muslims that if they were "to follow the common run of those on earth, they will lead you away from the Way of Allah. They follow nothing but conjecture. They do nothing but lie." If Muslims were to "listen to a faction among the People of the Book [Christians and Jews], they will render you apostates after you have believed."

"Never will the Jews or Christians be satisfied with you unless you follow their Creed," the newsletter adds. "Sadly, we see Christians finding satisfaction in what their Muslim counterparts agreed to in their common exchange. It is not a believer's duty to please or try to satisfy the disbelievers."
Read the whole thing.

Anyone who thinks the war on terror is over is going to get a rude awakening from these people.

Hibz ut-Tahrir makes Hamas look like a bunch of moderates. The point is some Islamists are even more radical than the ones in the headlines.

We're not going to see an end to the conflict with Islam in our lifetime.
