Hundreds Of UK Muslims To Protest At London Palestine Conference
London, UK, February 24 – Hundreds of UK Muslims will demonstrate outside the UK government sponsored Palestinian reform conference on Tuesday March 1st 2005. The London conference will be attended by Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and other representatives of the Middle East Quartet. The demonstration is organised by Hizb ut-Tahrir, a leading global Islamic political party.
Demonstrators will condemn the treachery of Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas in his recognition of Israel’s occupation of Palestine and will call for the unification of the Muslim world, including Palestine, via the return of the Islamic Khilafah [Caliphate].
Dr Imran Waheed, the Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, “Mahmood Abbas is yet another Western puppet in the Middle East who has sold Palestine. Muslims reject outright Israel’s occupation. The PLO was established as an alternative colonialist expression, working to rewrite history and turn occupation into a false secular two-state solution. History is testament to the fact that only the Islamic Khilafah, not secularism, allowed Muslims, Jews and Christians to live side by side in peace and tranquillity.”
The protest will take place on Tuesday 1st March 2005 at 9 a.m. GMT outside the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London, SW1P 3EE [nearest underground station: Westminster].
Notes to Editors:
Hizb ut-Tahrir is an independent Islamic political party established in Jerusalem in 1953. The party works throughout the Islamic world to resume the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Islamic Khilafah [Caliphate]. The party adheres to Islamic law in all aspects of its work and considers violence or armed struggle against the regime, as a method to re-establish the Islamic State, to be forbidden by Islamic law. In the Western world, the party seeks to explain the Islamic ideology to Muslims, to create a dialogue with Western thinkers and to present a positive image of Islam to Western society.
