"The issue is not to remove the individual tyrants like Ben Ali, Hosni Mubarak, King Abdullah, Asif Ali Zardari or any of the other Muslim rulers while the very system that they govern remains alive and well. It is rather the man made systems that they govern; the very system that produces such tyrants. For the past 90 years, the Ummah has tasted the bitter fruits of nationalism, communism, democracy and dictatorship. Now it yearns for the sweetness of Islam."Hizb ut-Tahrir (America) comments on the Egyptian intifada
The world has witnessed an eruption of unparalled magnitude in the Muslim world over the past two weeks. Muslims the world over from Pakistan, to Tunisia, to Egypt, Yemen, Palestine, Jordan and even Albania have showed their utter mistrust and disapproval of the tyrant rulers imposed upon them. The demonstrators have shown great courage inspired by the Muslims of Tunisia. These demonstrations have erupted from the frustrated hearts of the Ummah and are a sincere display of the Islamic sentiment. Indeed, the videos from Cairo are riveting, with masses of Muslims flowing from the masajid after Friday prayer and overwhelming security forces. As a clear sign of the goodness of the Ummah, the world is witnessing the riot police allowing the Muslims to perform the Isha prayers in the streets; an indication that the very security forces that repress the Ummah are the same ones who will protect and defend it when its Islamic sentiment is evoked.
