On Sunday, 10 February 2019, President Uhuru Kenyatta joined other Heads of State and government and world leaders’ in attending the 32nd African Union (AU) summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Led by the new AU chairperson, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi they vowed to never allow terrorism to distabilise any country in Africa. Furthermore, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, and Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said terrorism should be eradicated and its sponsors identified and shamed. El-Sisi described the scourge of terrorism as a cancer that continues to affect African nations and destroy important structures. In his acceptance speech said, “There is need to identify the sponsors of terrorism and address its root causes while putting counter terrorism measures in place.” On the other hand, Mahmoud Abbas said, “We are ready to fight terrorism and extremism in all our capitals. We should all abhor all forms of terrorism and extremism.” (Daily Nation, Monday, 11/02/2019)
The above utterances confirm that AU as an institution used to continue further neo-colonialism is determined to continue the execution of a dangerous and evil plan drafted by the western barbarians of fighting Islam under the pretext of annihilating terrorism. It is clear that Islam is a complete way and the colonialists are running to silence it across the world and here in Africa. Let it be clear that Muslims in this continent are being harassed and discriminated while others are massacred in the so-called war against terrorism. Ironically, the current AU chairperson El-Sisi has been working with the West in committing terrorist acts including arresting numerous Islamic activists in his nation but also journalists! Furthermore, he has been spilling the sacred blood of his citizens in the squares of Egypt and its streets, and is still unlawfully arresting tens of thousands of people of Egypt, while seeking to appease the Jews and Americans.
The ruling secular capitalist ideology that emanates from man’s limited mind; it came to power after the French Revolution in 1789 has caused misery and catastrophes to humanity. And so in 1917 the secular socialist ideology that became communist ideology that emanates from man’s limited mind; emerged and was led by Russia to counter the ills of the capitalist ideology but failed and was destroyed officially in 1992 by America! Since then humanity is in the rush of seeking an alternative ideology to their deplorable lives that are sinking in extreme-poverty, poisonous education systems, destroyed family structures, increasing rich-poor gap economic policies amongst others. The only remaining and tested alternative ideology capable of providing genuine tranquility, development and prosperity under a just leadership ruling by the Shari’ah (Qur’an and Sunnah) is the pure Islamic ideology emanating from the Creator of creation. That has been proven beyond reasonable doubt for the last 13 Centuries since the historical Hijrah in 622CE in Madinah.
Therefore, champions of the invalid secular capitalist ideology and its systems led by America and her allies are desperately attempting to cover and prop up their ideology by placing it intensive care unit but in reality it passed away longtime! At the same time are verbally and militarily threatening Islam as an ideology and strict adhering Muslims with terrorism and extremism respectively! Since their memories are, still fresh and dread the return of Islam into a ruling ideology and Muslims taking charge of global affairs! And so the former US President Obama on Thursday, 4 June 2009 he delivered a speech at Cairo University in Egypt and stressed on concerted efforts in the war against extremism (The New York Times, 04/06/2009). Followed by the current US President Donald Trump on Sunday, 21 May 2017 delivered a speech at the King Abdulaziz Conference Center in Saudi Arabia and stressed on concerted efforts in fighting terrorism and launched a Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology (GCCEI) (Arab News, 22/05/2017). Recently the current US State Secretary Mike Pompeo on Thursday, 10 January 2019 delivered a speech at American University in Cairo, Egypt and stressed on concert efforts to re-evaluate the fight against radical Islam (Cairo Informer, 10/01/2019)
It is very clear AU and its leadership comprising of agent rulers have been forced by the West to fight Islam and Muslims throughout the continent and the world in general. At the same time, they have decided to play blind not to see that terrorism and its major financiers are their western colonial masters led by America and its allies including Britain, France, China, Russia etc. Furthermore, they ignored the golden Islamic era witnessed by humanity across the world and especially Europe, Middle East and North Africa etc. that was under the leadership of a piety Khalifah (Caliphs) who was equal to the lowest in rank in the Khilafah (Caliphate) before the Shari’ah. In doing so AU will further the policy of branding strict adhering Muslims as Radicals/Extremists and try to make their lives a living hell and those whose feet oscillate between secularism and Islam as Moderate/Tolerant Muslims and who fit in their version of their Islamic interpretation.
In Conclusion, the position of AU and its leadership has once again revealed its true nature and it is that of betraying its people and especially the Muslims and their Islam by participating in plotting against them to cause them great harm! So that they can achieve their personal interests, which is widely known that most African states are bribed with some coins by the capitalists as donations in global security strategies! Hence, their betrayal calls for a radical and genuine change that is anchored on embracement of the Call for The Resumption of the Islamic Way of Life by establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood as championed by your brothers and sisters in Hizb ut Tahrir. It is only by reestablishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) that genuine liberation of humanity in Africa and the world at large would be realized. Furthermore, the liberation will be from darkness of being ruled by secular colonial capitalist ideology into the light of ideological Islam’s rule. Africa guided by an able and caring Khalifah (Caliph) who yearns for the highest levels of Paradise will ban and chase away the plunderers of its vast resources and their poisonous ideology and in return execute comprehensively the Shari’ah for the betterment of humanity (Muslims and non-Muslims) under its care. The time to take a position is now before the writers of history remove their golden pens from their golden books. In addition, the position is that of speaking and sticking to the truth, being steadfast on the path for genuine Islamic revival and yearning for the everlasting Jannah. Indeed, victory is to those on the side of Allah’s planning:
(وَيَمۡكُرُونَ وَيَمۡكُرُ ٱللَّهُۖ وَٱللَّهُ خَيۡرُ ٱلۡمَـٰڪِرِينَ)
“But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners.” [Al-Anfaal: 30]
