This past Sunday April 25, Australia celebrated Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.
Hizb ut-Tahrir released a statement concerning this day of remembrance, and their intentions remain very clear.
Canadian Hizb ut-Tahrir leaders have also been very clear in their intentions. Islamization is the end goal.
HT states that its goal is to peacefully convert Muslim nations (and indeed the world) to Islamist political systems. HT praises the concept of jihad but insists that it does not use “material power to defend itself or as a weapon….” The group publicly disavows efforts to achieve its goals of a caliphate through violent means.
This organization may appear innocuous, but they have many followers world wide and continue to grow. Their goal of world-wide caliphate is a goal shared by many Islamist groups, as is their hatred for America, the Jewish nation and democracy in general.
