International political group Hizb ut-Tahrir (logo at left) will be hosting a “Khilafah Conference” in the United Kingdom on July 9th, one that will promote the ideas of a world governed by Islamic law. Now the group just announced that it will host yet another one of those conferences in the Netherlands on July 3rd. The Blaze notes the irony of the conference’s timing, as it will be taking place just days after the acquittal of Geert Wilders, who has been leading the fight against “the Islamizof Europe.”
According to Tahrir Organizers, the event will answer all questions regarding Islamic unity and the establishment of a world caliphate.
The organizers released a video advertisement in anticipation of the event. The Blaze explains:
The video depicts dramatic footage of imams and hordes of worshipers chanting about the “prophetic method” — apparently the method by which the caliphate will come to fruition. Included in their cries is the rather unsettling line: “Then there will be a Khilafah on the prophetic method and it will be for as long as Allah wills…”
The trailer for the conference asserts:
In 1953 a group arose to re-establish the Khilafah — 6 decades of challenging tyranny, 6 decades of resisting oppression, 6 decades of exposing colonialism. An Islamic call spanning the globe, east to west, 44 countries…Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain presents an international conference, our vision for change.”
One promotional poster for the 2011 International Khilafah Conference reads:
“The uprisings we have witnessed are of historic proportion, yet analysing their reality poses many key questions. Are these uprisings the fruit of deeper causes at work in the Muslim World, or are they the spontaneous results of short-term causes? Where is the place of these uprisings in the Islamic revival, and work for Khilafah? Join us in the important conference which will place the uprisings in their broader historical, ideological and political context in discussing these key questions.”

Do you even know what the hell "Sharia law" is?
Know what all the previous Caliphates have in common? Failure. The Turks only held on as long as they did because they had the advantage of guns for a few hundred years; give the Arabs guns and suddenly the Turks are hauling ass. The most recent attempt at a restoration, the unification of Egypt and Syria in the 60's, failed because Syria was afraid Egypt was too powerful. Transplant that argument to any other state in the region. Why don't Iraq and Jordan unify? 'Cause either Iraq or Jordan will be dominant over the other. Why don't Turkey, Syria, and Iran hook up? 'Cause one of the three would have to become the "bitch" to the other two.
Half of the Arab states refuse to speak to the other half. Turkey is humping Europe's leg like a cocker spaniel on viagra. The Maghreb states don't really do much of anything except host European tourists and occasionally stage coups. And everyone hates Iran.
A Caliphate has zero chance of appearing even in the region of the world where such a thing has a historical foundation and religious validation, and you goobers think it's an imminent threat to the US and Western Europe? Good lord are you clueless.
