      UK: Police raid mosque

      Police raid mosque to silence Muslim opposition to colonial plan for

      "And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger
      and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the
      patient" [TMQ Al-Baqarah: 155]

      In the early hours of Monday morning, police raided Finsbury Park
      Mosque as part of "extensive investigations into terror activities in
      the UK". The raid involved the use of helicopters, battering rams,
      dozens of police vans and some 150 police officers, some of whom were
      armed. Seven people were held by anti-terrorist officers after the
      night operation at the mosque and Scotland Yard said
      the "intelligence-led" raid was linked to the discovery of the poison
      ricin in nearby Wood Green earlier this month. Police continued to
      search the premises late on Monday morning, and could be seen
      removing computer equipment and bags of files. A stun gun, blank-
      firing replica firearm and CS gas canister were among the items
      allegedly seized in the raid.

      However, the disproportionate and thuggish assault on the mosque was
      not only intended to investigate "alleged terrorist activity in
      London and elsewhere in the UK", as suggested by the Metropolitan
      Police Service, but rather to silence any opposition from Muslims to
      the impending military action against Iraq, whether authorised by the
      UN or not, and to the use of Muslim countries as a base for the
      attacks. The raid seems to mimic moves undertaken by the US
      government including the mass internment of Muslims and the
      incarceration without trial of 'unlawful combatants' in Guantanamo
      Bay. Metropolitan Police Commissioner John Stevens had earlier tried
      to stoke up fear amongst Muslims in the UK by saying, "There's still
      a large number of people we're watching, there's still a number of
      people who still have yet to be arrested."

      The overwhelming majority of Muslims in Britain remain opposed to
      military action against Iraq and the 'war on terror' which they see
      as a pretext employed by Britain and America to re-colonise the
      Muslim world and prevent the emergence of an independent powerful
      Islamic state.

      Over the last week tens of thousands of Muslims across the UK have
      signed a petition rejecting Western inspired solutions for Iraq,
      including UN intervention, and criticising the acquiescence of
      corrupt Muslim rulers in the butchery of the Muslims of Iraq. The
      petition is part of a mass Islamic mobilisation campaign to account
      corrupt Muslim rulers for their treachery, expose the plans of the
      Western colonial states for Iraq and expose the UN as a tool of
      British and American colonialism

      Assaults on mosques and attempts to stoke fear in the Muslim
      community will not make Muslims in Britain bow down to the political
      will of the British Government, accept Western inspired solutions for
      Iraq or tolerate the acquiescence of corrupt Muslim rulers in the
      butchery of Iraqi Muslims.

      "And remember when you were few and were reckoned weak in the land,
      and were afraid that men might kidnap you, but He provided a safe
      place for you, strengthened you with His Help, and provided you with
      good things so that you might be grateful." [TMQ Al-Anfal: 26]

      It is obligatory on the Muslims at this time to stand shoulder to
      shoulder in one line facing the challenges that confront them. It is
      not allowed for the Muslim to disown his brother or snub him so as to
      remove the suspicion from himself and gain the love of the
      disbelievers. It is also not allowed for the Muslims to forsake their
      brothers even if their opinions, schools of thought, trends of
      thinking and movements are different - we should not forget that the
      attack is directed against the Muslims; no Muslim is safe from it and
      no group is safe.

      Islamic politics, unlike non-Islamic politics practiced in the West,
      demands that Muslims enjoin the good and forbid the evil - this means
      accounting the corrupt Muslim rulers for their treachery, exposing
      the plans of the Western colonial states for Iraq, exposing the UN as
      a tool of British and American colonialism, opposing the attack on
      the Islamic identity under the guise of 'integration' and presenting
      Islam as an alternative ideology to Capitalism.

      Islam obliges Muslims everywhere, including those in Britain, to
      stand shoulder to shoulder with the Muslims of Iraq in any upcoming
      conflict. The true solution to the problems the people of the world
      face, Muslims and non-Muslims, is to re-establish the Islamic State
      [Khilafah], which will be ideologically and politically independent
      of the West and her agents.

      The nationwide mass Islamic mobilisation campaign is organised by
      Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain. If you would like more information about this
      campaign or would like to participate please contact us and we will
      send you a campaign pack.
