By the Rightly Guided Khilafah "Caliphate" upon the Methodology of the Prophethood, we will be ridden from Colonialism and Rescue Tunisia from Collapse
The country of Tunisia is sinking under the pressure of strangling economic and financial crises reaching the boundaries of collapse on occasions. Increasing living costs, diminishing purchasing power of the people, accumulating trade deficit, the raising price of the exchange of the Dinar against foreign currencies, the consecutive ruling crises despite the so-called agreement that had been reached and all of that only touches upon a fraction of the tragedies that our country is living. The crisis reveals itself in its most hideous of forms when the state apparatus transforms from the role of caretaking the affairs of the people into the role of caretaking the interests of the colonial states and their partners which are plundering our natural resources. And what took place recently in Qarqanah when the government proceeded to repress and terrorize our people who were protesting against the British company Petrofac and demanding for our natural resources to be returned and be managed by our hands so that its benefit returns to the country. It is clear evidence that the current rulers of Tunisia are not other than servants to their western masters. The interference of foreign embassies and western departments in our affairs is no longer a hidden matter and this is what was mentioned explicitly quoted by some officials in the presidency and government. This doesn’t even cover the excessiveness of the government in respect to the security of the land and surrendering its security departments to the British state of supervision and training, and allowing the Americans and Germans to enter into the south of Tunisia under the pretext of securing the borders from terrorist groups. That is aside from the penetration of the foreign intelligence agencies which hatch plots and dirty actions within our country.
The matter intensifies in its ugliness as the state continues to grovel at the doors of financial loaning institutions to the point that we are living under horrendous debts that empower the grip and hold of the colonialist powers over our land. These loans and assistances are normally provided to gain control over indebted states, impoverish them and seize their sovereignty. This warns of disastrous consequences that could restore the raising of the colonial capitalist protection within our land once again. This matter does not worry the rulers of Tunisia because they do not see any shame in being neglectful in respect to a land from our country for the benefit of the colonialist. That is just like the situation in respect to its neglect by providing America with a piece of land of Tunisia in compensation for the damages related to the incident of the American embassy. This is in the case where the Tunisian foreign minister stated: “Compensating America for the damages to the American embassy with a piece of land was an American proposal which Tunisia responded positively to”. It is in this way and with all simplicity that the new rulers of Tunisia deal with the financial crises through their neglect of the land and of honour. We need to ask: If the incapability of meeting the payment of 36 million US dollars is dealt with by handing over a piece of land to a state that covets interests in our land due to a mere request, then how will the situation be when the matter relates to paying back billions of dollars to the IMF and World Bank in the situation of not being capable to meet the payments followed by the major colonial states like America, Britain and France which support these financial institutions demanding compensation for their due financial payments with the handing over of the island of Qarqanah for example?!!
The failure in solving the problems of the people from the side of the consecutive governments does not come from the weakness in material potential and capabilities as they have portrayed it to us. Rather, its cause is the capitalist system perched over our chests. It represents the basis of the disease, the source of distress and house of corruption and those who cause corruption. In addition to being in opposition to the pure Shar’a of Allah which by itself is enough to bring the anger of Allah upon us due to His Speech:
[وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْ ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنْكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَى]
“And whosoever turns away from my Dhikr (Qur’aan) then for him there will be a life of hardship” [TaHa: 124].
In addition to that, the state is instituted for political and economic subservience. As such, none reaches the rule except those whom the West is content and satisfied with. There are no development projects except that they are in accordance to the interests of the West and their conditions which prevent the land from separating from the grip of colonialism. This is blatantly clear in light of the role of dirty money and foreign embassies utilised to bringing the current rulers in Tunisia to the position of ruling. It is also clear in the development projects of the government which do not go outside of bringing foreign investments and loans from the international banks; at the head of which are the IMF and World Bank. They as a whole make the country fall under the mercy of the foreigner and its conditions whilst the country does not benefit to the level that the west itself and the corrupt capitalists benefit.
O People in Tunisia, O People of Power and Support:
Our country enjoys abundance in resources and buried treasures however it is a source of plunder for the disbelievers and nothing remains from them except a negligible and small portion that the agent rulers and some of the corrupt capitalists take for themselves. It had been an obligation upon the government to act in accordance to what Islaam had obliged upon them and that is by managing our natural resources themselves without reliance upon the plundering foreign companies. And then to utilise those revenues to increase the agricultural wealth in order to attain self-sufficiency, to establish heavy industry and immediately begin to manufacture the machinery that enables the realisation of self-sufficiency in respect to the building of branch factories and heavy hardware that would in turn increase the development of the agricultural treasure and provide the necessary weaponry to our security forces and army so that our security does not remain held ransom to the interests of the industrial states and their humiliating conditions. These solutions are beyond the weak agents who are in origin incapable of even managing their farming produce, like milk for instance, which remains spilt upon the streets whilst tens of thousands of Tunisians cannot find a mouthful of milk to give to their children!! So how is the situation when it comes to restoring and returning the natural resources from the plundering foreign companies? That is because they are, with doubt, not capable of even holding them to account let alone expel them and restore the plundered resources to their place of origin under their consideration as being public properties, the benefit of which returns to the people of the land and no one else.
O People in Tunisia, O People of Power, Support and Sense of Honour:
It has become clear that the rulers have become like employees for the western departments; defending the interests of their masters and even if it means repressing its people to achieve that. And it has become clear there is no way out for us except to uproot the foreign influence in all of its forms, pillars and symbols whilst placing the great Islam in the position and place of application and implementation under the shade of the rightly guided Khilafah "Caliphate" (Caliphate) upon the methodology of the Prophethood and the shade of the Raayah (banner) of the Messenger of Allah (saw). That will occur by the very same method that our noble Messenger (saw) proceeded upon, by establishing a bloc (group) upon the basis of Islam and carrying the Da’wah amongst the Muslims and their sons from the people of power and support to convince them of the obligation to apply the pure Shar’a of Allah and give support to His upright Deen. That is until we establish the best state of the best Ummah, a state that will restore its natural plundered resources and guarantee the satisfaction of all of the fundamental needs of all the individuals. A state that is capable of gaining the confidence of the masses of the people through their good and correct application of Islam in order to direct their energies to realise difficult goals like that of manufacturing for example. That is the path for our salvation and by this alone will the Ummah revive and rise from its fall. It will rise from its repression, safeguard its resources and restore its original and initial path so that Allah Al-‘Azeez Al-Hakeem will grant it victory:
[إِنَّا لَنَنْصُرُ رُسُلَنَا وَالَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْأَشْهَادُ]
“Verily, we will support our Messengers and those who have believed during the life of this world and on the day when the witnesses will stand forth” [Al-Ghafir: 51].
O People in Tunisia, O People of Power, Support and Sense of Honour:
Allah gave you the honour of being the first revolutionaries against the criminal and tyrannical rulers, so complete your revolution with Islam and support the cause of Allah via the application of His pure Shar’a and He will support you and make your foothold firm. We, your brothers in Hizb ut Tahrir, seek to awaken your concerns and call out to your sense of honour to work with us and support us with a support that will restore the second rightly guided Khilafah "Caliphate", a Khilafah "Caliphate" upon the methodology of the Prophethood after this oppressive rule that we are in. This is in realisation to the promise of Allah Almighty:
[وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ]
“Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous acts that he will surely grant them succession of authority in the land” [An-Nur: 55].
And the glad tidings of the Messenger of Allah (saw) after this oppressive rule (Mulk Jabriy):
[...ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ نُبُوَّةٍ]
“Then there will be a Mulk Jabriy (oppressive rule) and will last for as long as Allah wills it to last, then He will remove it when He chooses to remove it, then there will be a Khilafah "Caliphate" upon the methodology of the Prophethood”.
