Statement of Hizb ut Tahrir / Indonesia about "THE US's ESPIONAGE"

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

As reported recently by the Sydney Morning Herald that the US Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia became one of the 90 US surveillance facilities at diplomatic missions worldwide. The leading newspaper in Australia published the map registering 90 electronic surveillance facilities. According to the map dated 13/08/2010, one of the cities where the US embassy lies is Jakarta. A similar map was also published by famous magazine in Germany, Der Spiegel. Responding to this rumour, the Indonesian Minister for Foreign Affairs Marty Natalegawa said that he would summon the US Charge d'Affaires for Indonesia, Kristen Bauer.

The rumour about surveillance facility in US Embassy in Jakarta has confirmed that the protests organised by Hizb ut Tahrir so far is not nonsense. The US Embassy in Jakarta is proven to be the listening station. Even if that rumor is still an allegation, but the source of information is very accurate. Likewise, the fact that US eavesdropped on the German and French as it is reported by The Magazine, Der Spiegel has strengthened the allegation. The magazine said that US has been spying over both countries since 2002. Similar operations were also replicated in 80 locations around the world. The German interior minister has been quoted as saying such an operation, if confirmed, would be illegal. As well as the bugging of Mrs. Merkel's phone, there are claims the NSA has monitored millions of telephone calls made by German and French citizens.

Der Spiegel claims to have seen secret documents from the National Security Agency which shows Mrs Merkel's number on a list dating from 2002 - three years before she became chancellor. The White House its self didn't deny the tapping explicitly. This proved that the allegation of this operation is confirmed.

Based on the facts above, it is time for the Indonesia government to close the US Embassy in Jakarta and cancel the building permits for new building that its construction is in progress to be the third largest US Embassy after Iraq and Pakistan. Governments' plan to summon the US Ambassador and file the letter of protest is not enough. According to the Islamic view, the closure of the US embassy must be done because US is a country in war on Islam and is killing Muslims (muhariban fi'lan) in the regions. There should be no diplomatic relations of any kind to this country until it stops the occupation and the killing of Muslims in various regions of the world.

Regarding this issue, Hizb ut Tahrir Indonesia together with other Islamic organizations declares:

1. Reject the project of a new building of US Embassy in Jakarta because it is proven to be the spying station for the US to spy over the Indonesia government and its people. Furthermore, the US Embassy building will surely be a means of further imperialism of US over Indonesia especially in political and economic fields. Imperialism is harmful for the country and its people.

2. Demand the Indonesia Government to cancel the building permits of the US Embassy and close it. This policy must be done to show that Indonesia government really defends the security and sovereignty of this country. Unless, it will be a proof that Indonesia government is subject to US, the sadist imperialist country.

3. Call on Muslims to move together to reject the project of US Embassy that brings a great munkar and to defend the sovereignty of Islamic countries. Furthermore we call upon the people to work and fight together to reestablish the Islamic Khilafah "Caliphate". Be certain, only Khilafah "Caliphate" alone can realize happiness for all people (rahmatan lil alamin) as Allah (swt) promises. Only Khilafah "Caliphate" alone can protect the dignity and sovereignty of Muslim countries including Indonesia. Inshaallah. Hasbunallah wa ni'mal wakiil, ni'mal mawla wa ni'man nashiir.
