News Right Now: Consensual Occupation
Welcome to today’s episode of News Right Now: Consensual Occupation
On the 31st January of this year, a defense cooperation agreement was signed between the US and Jordan which was then approved on the 17th of February. This agreement did not go through the Parliament, even though it is a violation of the Jordanian constitution. The defense cooperation agreement is made up of 19 articles, all of which regulate the status of the US forces in Jordan, along with knowing how to deal with the US members on the Jordanian territory. Article 3 of the agreement states: “Jordan shall provide for the United States Forces, United States personnel, and United States contractors and others, as mutually agreed, the possibility of unimpeded access to the facilities and areas agreed upon.”
Also, Article 7 specifies: “The United State forces and the United States personnel will be permitted to enter and exit the Jordanian territories and move freely in it”. Moving on to Article 8, it is stated that “Aircraft, vehicles and ships operated by or on behalf of the United States forces may enter, exit and move freely in the Jordanian territories and territorial waters.” And to add on, we must shed light on article 15 which stipulates: “The United States forces and United States contractors are permitted to use water and electricity facilities and other public facilities on terms and conditions, including prices or fees, that are no less favorable than those available for the Jordanian Armed Forces or the Jordanian government.”
It is clear that there is more to this agreement than to secure Jordan. This is a case of consensual occupation. Allowing the enemies of Islam to do as they wish in Jordan.
(يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ)
“O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them” [Al-Ma’ida: 51].
Allah (swt) also stated in Surat An-Nisa, Verses 138 and 139
(بَشِّرِ الْمُنَافِقِينَ بِأَنَّ لَهُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً * الَّذِينَ يَتَّخِذُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِنْ دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَيَبْتَغُونَ عِنْدَهُمُ الْعِزَّةَ فَإِنَّ الْعِزَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعاً)
“Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment * Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely”
We must take a moment to ask ourselves what this agreement ensures and who it truly benefits. Does it benefit Jordan? And what’s in it for America? What we have seen in the past solidifies that no agreements made by the Kaffir west and their puppets has ever had the intention to benefit the Islamic Ummah. It is clear that this is a strategic move of geopolitics. Taking a look we see the distinct location of Jordan, coincidentally, right next to Palestine, which is occupied by the Jewish entity. Who is aided and supported by America. Therefore, this agreement allows the US to further protect the Jewish entity outside of Palestine’s borders.
(وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ ٱللَّهُ ۖ وَٱللَّهُ خَيْرُ ٱلْمَـٰكِرِينَ )
“They were planning, and Allah was planning, and Allah is the best planner.” [Al-Anfal : 30 ]
The Kaffir west and their puppets can create as many agreements as they wish. Attempting to silence the call to the way of Allah and to prevent the return of Khilafah! They will fail miserably. No matter what they do to try to prevent the Khilafah (Caliphate), they know that it will rise again. It will put an end to all corruption they have caused, giving the penalty to those who have betrayed Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw). For every agreement made against the Muslims will in the end only bring them darkness.
(إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِ اللّهِ فَسَيُنفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ إِلَى جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُونَ)
The disbelievers spend their wealth to hinder (man) from the path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the disbelievers will be gathered together to Hell [Anfal 36]
