Events in Iraq have been accelerating in a shocking, apparent manner since 10/06/2014 when the revolutionaries entered Mosul until now, followed by the collapse of the Iraqi army in Mosul and Tikrit, somewhat like delivery and receipt, but by the orders from top leaders in the army. Then Maliki's call to mobilize militias rather than the military, attack and retreat in Diyala, and even close to Baghdad. Even Baiji, the largest oil refinery is disputed by missiles, launchers and aircrafts ... and then away to Tal Afar, and so forth, all in a record time, as if it were set up on a date... These events have been accompanied by confessional and sectarian calls from references and leaders until the sedition reached its peak, and became visible with its head and face, weeping and made others weep, on the land of Mesopotamia, which was once the capital of the world whose Khaleefah used to address the clouds!
Although these events are grave, the international reactions were not at the level of the events, thus politicians' statements were calculated, and were not of the magnitude of the event. So some placed blame on the crisis in Syria, others placed blamed on preventing the rights of Sunnis in Iraq, and others on the tyranny of al-Maliki ... and all were previously found and not born today! And so the events did not manifest internationally to the size that matches them except that there was coordination or prior knowledge of the influential perpetrators in the political scene. The most prominent of these statements came from Obama's quotes where he announced on Friday, 13th June 2014 assuring the world of the flow of oil and its compensation from the stock of the Gulf States if oil supplies get disrupted in Iraq which indicates that US administration was not surprised by what is happening on the ground, but also had prepared plans in advance to avoid any oil crisis. Then, there is also what Obama stated on 13/06/2014 that Washington "will not participate in military action in the absence of a political plan offered by the Iraqis," This is despite the security agreement between America and Iraq, and despite that the Iraqi Foreign Minister Zebari said in Jeddah on 18/06/2014, Wednesday evening "that Baghdad had asked Washington to conduct air strikes against militants". This was confirmed by the head of US Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Dempsey in front of members of Congress, which means that America is not in a hurry to intervene, but it delays it to accomplish other arrangements. As for Britain, although its interests in Iraq are different from those of America, but it followed the same US approach because the matter is regarding the tearing of a Muslim country. The British Foreign Secretary William Hague told BBC on 16/06/2014, when he was asked about the non-intervention in Iraq saying: "The United States is much more likely to have assets and capabilities for any outside intervention than the United Kingdom."
Whoever reflects on the current events sees them as an episode in a series of episodes that were not only initiated by America with its occupation of Iraq, but also before the occupation, since America imposed no-fly zones in North of Iraq in 1991, where Kurdistan became a quasi-state region! And when America occupied Iraq in 2003, the American governor of Iraq, Bremer set a constitution carrying the seed of dismantling Iraq that made him utter with confessional and sectarian-based quota system. The seed continued to grow until the month of 12/2011, when America exited Iraq with its military appearance but remained in it with its security and political reality, wherein the tree of sedition blossomed. Then America fueled it placing an intolerant sectarian tyrant at the head of the government in Iraq. So Maliki deliberately crushed the areas of Northern and Western Iraq, and tyrannized and oppressed in unprecedented brutality, whenever it receded, he ignited again with provocative acts and sayings to aggravate those areas ... And the sectarian incitement escalated with the creation of the Shiite armed militias, and in return focusing on ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) as being Sunni terrorism, although the movements that have entered Mosul and Tikrit and the others were from several movements, including ISIS... And the matter did not stop at this point, but the neighboring countries raced in highlighting sectarianism... all in the implementation of US policy, and marching behind it Britain, then the agents and the followers who do not want Iraq to be a unified entity, but want it to be a fragmented feuding divergent entity, killing each other! And each party clings stubbornly to have a territory, and the calls for provinces and divisions became publicly proclaimed... And because events occur without concealment, the Kurdistan region realized the reality of the situation, and therefore at a time the rebels controlled Mosul, the Peshmerga forces of the Kurdistan region came to fully control Kirkuk and the surrounding areas. Reuters quoted on 15/06/2014 Fuad Hussein, Barzani's chief of staff, as saying: "Iraq has entered a new phase that is completely different than before control of Mosul and that the Kurds will discuss how to deal with this new Iraq."
O Muslims... O Arabs... O Kurds... O Sunnis... O Shiites... O People of Mesopotamia...
Your blood has been shed, your wealth looted and your homes, rather your Mosques destroyed, and Iraq has become a failed fragile state that does not block a meddling hand... Is there not among you a man of reason to reflect on what happened? Do not you see that America and their alliances, agents and followers ... all exasperate the sedition (fitnah), so it boils then trickles down into three branches, three rips, three territories: Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites, that are not gathered by any relation except by a thin thread or much less...! Is not it so? Do you not wonder how America has protected the Kurdistan region? And how Bremer implanted in its constitution the seeds of the 'madh'habism' (school of thought) and sectarian-based system? Do not you wonder how America created in the current government a tyrant in power who infuses the sectarian strife without modesty or shame? Do not you wonder how America is watching the situation and feeding it for the Kurds to diverge from the Arabs, and the Sunnis to diverge from the Shiites? Do not you wonder how America meets with Britain, the agents and the followers, and everyone is marching in the direction of feeding into this sedition (fitneh), this with the knowledge that the interests of America and Britain are different, but they meet on tearing Muslim lands?!
Islam has unified you for centuries, and its Banner has shaded you for a long period of time, so you were strong and dignified. You shared the Good together, and you fought the Evil together... Your country is the land of tournaments; the land of al-Qadisiyah, the land of al-Buwaib the Persian Yarmouk, the country of Haroon al-Rashid and al-Mu'tassim, the country of Salah al-Din, the country of the conquerors, the former and the subsequent Allah willing. The undivided Iraq is strong by its people, and the torn Iraq is weak by its rips... If the Kurds assume that the presence of a Kurdistan region or a state of Kurdistan will bring them dignity, it would not exceed a short period, but will lead to their death after a while... And if the Sunnis assume that the existence of a territory that belongs to them in the Northern and Western Iraq will bring them a decent living, it would not exceed a worthwhile period, and then misery and hardship will inflict afterwards... If the Shiites assume that the presence of the territory that belongs to them in the South will bring them the power of tyranny it would only be for a short time, and then matters shall return to weakness and humiliation.
O Muslims... O Arabs... O Kurds... O Sunnis... O Shiites... O People of Mesopotamia...
The guide does not lie to his people, and Hizb ut Tahrir is a sincere advisor to you, so do not incline towards America and Europe, they will not give you any weight, but they are serious in inflicting you with fatal wounds ... so that they create three entities in Iraq that are connected together by a worn-out bond in a nominal state as a prelude to cut this bond in the later stages... We are able to understand the direction of the poisoned arrows of America and the West at us ... But for the people of Iraq to accept that, and even struggling to achieve it, and all of them seeking the help of America in that, then this is a widespread evil.
You are one Ummah that is prohibited from being fragmented.
And you are prohibited to dispute, otherwise your strength would collapse and your enemy will become greedy with you.
O people of Mesopotamia this matter will not be reformed except with a remedy from the start: ruling by what Allah has revealed, and jihad in the name of Allah ... holding fast to the rope of Allah and breaking the bond with the enemies of Allah... and the rejection of sectarianism and madh'habism «دَعُوهَا فَإِنَّهَا مُنْتِنَةٌ» "Leave it, its rotten",Bukhari narrated from Jabir... Quit the titles of sectarianism and madh'habism, and hold on to the name that Allah named us
So return to Him and establish His state, the rightly guided Khilafah, by it you will be glorified, and by it you will address the clouds once again, and by it you will return servants of Allah as one brotherhood...
