Hizb ut-Tahrir: Radical group calls for global Islamic rule during Sydney protest about Syria
RADICAL Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir held a rally in front of hundreds of supporters in Western Sydney last night denouncing the US and Russia and repeating calls for global Islamic rule.
Women held dolls smeared in fake blood and men held signs declaring “The Axis of Evil: Russia, Iran, Syria, USA”, as they called for an end to the Russian-backed Assad regime in Syria.
The rally went ahead in Lakemba Memorial Park despite the murder of Russian ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov by an off duty police officer just hours before.
Speakers said Muslims in the Syrian capital Aleppo had been subject to horrific bloodshed and called for retribution.
“The path before us needs to be clear, to construct a solid independent path built solely upon Islam, built solely upon Islam to the exclusion of everything else,” one speaker shouted.
The same speaker levelled his rant at Australia, saying said it would be “disgraceful” for ambassadors of the Muslim world “to stand with colonialists and accept their invitations from this country, from other western countries who are directly responsible for all of these crimes”.
The crowd repeatedly cried “Alahu Akhbar”, or “God is Great”.
Speakers did not respond to requests for comment by The Daily Telegraph after the rally.
