There was zero media coverage on this and it took place in America. Respect it, you islamophobes.
“Everything We Represent Goes In Total Contradiction To What The West Represents, Because All Of Islam Is In Opposition Of Secularism
“But what we need to understand is that the battle between us and the West is an ideological battle. It’s an ideological battle. Everything we represent goes in total contradiction to what the West represents…”

At Annual Caliphate Conference In Illinois, Haitham Ibn Thbait, Of U.S. Chapter Of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, Warns Muslims Of ‘Perils’ Of Western Democracy: Our Children Become U.S. Soldiers, FBI Agents, Republicans, Democrats, And Gay
By MEMRI, Auuist 17, 2018:
Haitham Ibn Thbait, a member of Hizb-ut-Tahrir America, said that Islam stands in “total contradiction to what the West represents” – liberalism, democracy, feminism, and movements such as DREAM, #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ, pro-choice groups, and Occupy Wall Street. Speaking at Hizb-ut-Tahrir America’s annual Khilafa (“Caliphate”) Conference, he said that “we should be working within our own system, not democracy” and warned that “our children might prefer democracy to Islam.” “Can you imagine the Prophet of Allah standing alongside the LGBTQ community? Or with pro-choice? Or with… the Occupy movements?” he said. The conference was held in Palos Hills, Illinois on April 29, 2018. Ibn Thbait had expressed similar sentiments at the Khilafa Conference held in 2016 in Chicago (see MEMRI TV Clip 5493 An American Hizb Ut-Tahrir Leader Exhorts Muslims To Refrain From Voting In U.S. Elections, Says: Islam Is Here To Dominate, May 14, 2016).
The following are excerpts from the speech:
“Everything We Represent Goes In Total Contradiction To What The West Represents, Because All Of Islam Is In Opposition Of Secularism”
Haitham Ibn Thbait: “There’s a global narrative against ideological Islam, a narrative that wants to scare Muslims away from the straight path, to instill distrust in the straight path.
“Many of our community members are recruited so that they can translate, so that they can corrupt our aqida [creed], and so that they can consult the kuffar [unbelievers] in how to derail the Muslims and set them on a course pleasing to the West. Policy-makers work long and hard to ensure that we Muslims believe that you can succeed under their ways and with their values. And that is why we see them promoting these so-called ‘hip’ Muslims who clearly violate the laws of Allah. We see a veiled Muslima [Muslim woman] on the cover of a sex magazine. We see Muslims in their armies. We see Muslims in political office. This is their way of saying to us: ‘You don’t need your straight path. We have all you need.’ As early as 2004, RAND stated that they needed to get behind the modernists. They need to provide them with the platform to disseminate their ideas, and this is exactly what we are seeing today – the promotion of the secular Muslim. Whether knowing or otherwise, Muslims in the West are soldiers against Islam.
“But what we need to understand is that the battle between us and the West is an ideological battle. It’s an ideological battle. Everything we represent goes in total contradiction to what the West represents, because all of Islam is in opposition of secularism. They know this, and it is time that we did too.”
“We Need To Understand That Islam Is The Solution To All The Ills That Have Destroyed Them – And If We Seek To Fit In, Then We Are Part And Parcel Of The Problem That Is Infecting The World At Large”
“We need to differentiate ourselves. We cannot accept an identity that has clearly destroyed humanity. Look around you. They are failures, and we know this. And we need to take an intimate look at what is happening in the West so we can better articulate what is happening to our Muslims. We need to understand that Islam is the solution to all the ills that have destroyed them. And if we seek to fit in, then we are part and parcel of the problem that is infecting the world at large. My dear brothers and sisters, this inferiority does not belong to us. It is not befitting of an ummah [global community of Muslims] who Allah has labeled the best nation. ‘You are the best nation that has come out of the people.’ How dare you be inferior while at the same time Allah has given you the attribute of being the best ummah.
“We are victims of living under secular systems, 100 years of secular curriculums. Allah is not part of our day-to-day. We are victims of their colonial identities and the defeatism that came along with them. We put our heads down because we believe that they have something better, because we fail to understand what we have. Subhanallah [Praise be to Allah], we carry the identity of our colonizers. Think about that for a second. You are thinking the same way your enemy thinks.”
