Press Release: FPM Chest Constricted by a Demonstration Supporting the Prophet (saw), Accused it of Destabilizing Security!!

FPM Chest Constricted by a Demonstration Supporting the Prophet (saw), Accused it of Destabilizing Security!!

Yesterday Maroun Nassif wrote an article on the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) website in which he accused Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Lebanon, by its move to support the detainees’ cases, then by its demonstration it organized to condemn the support of Muslims rulers for France which insulted the Messenger of Allah (saw), that it aims to destabilize security in Tripoli and thwart its security plan.

We are interested to respond briefly:

First, the move carried out by the detainees’ families, in protest to what their sons encountered, was not organized by Hizb ut Tahrir, rather it was Shaykh Muhammad Ibrahim who adopted their case on his own initiative and with the blessing of the Hizb; noting that this move did not include what breaches the security nor posed a threat to it.

Secondly, it is disgusting that Maroun Nassif and the Free Patriotic Movement website expressed of their constricted chest towards a demonstration supporting the Prophet of Islam Muhammad (saw) in such a cheap method. While Nassif portrayed a disciplined and sophisticated demonstration in its slogans, organization and speeches as an act intended to disrupt security and to thwart the security plan! Forgetting and ignoring that the Hizb has always been far from the material acts prejudicial to the security which the feuding parties in Lebanon have always been implicated. As well, overlooking that the Hizb has always been calling for an end to the security chaos administered by the conflicting parties in Lebanon, headed by the conflicting factions (8th and 14th March), causing Tripoli and its axes to be an explosive post office to exchange messages and pressures, and they sponsored for the sake of that the axis leaders. Then, when they acquiesced to the orders coming from abroad to end this situation, all flaming axis extinguished magically!!

However, it seems that Mr. Nassif and sources that whisper in his ear want that the security plan not to be limited to the cessation of armed attacks and security chaos, but to include breaking any political will holding a popular movement that does not appeal to American and serve their interests in the region.
