It is no longer hidden from observers that the situation in the areas under the control of the criminal regime in Damascus has reached an unbearable level. The basic elements of life have disappeared, giving way to poverty, hunger, and the dominance of militias of murder, plunder, and crime, along with repressive apparatuses and killing. This has compelled people in various regions to take action once again, reigniting the flames of the revolution that still burns within the hearts of the people of Ash-Sham. They are resuming a revolutionary movement where the chants of the revolution are echoing, most prominently the call to overthrow the criminal regime.
The protests have rekindled in many towns, including Daraa, the cradle of the revolution, and others. The chants of the blessed Revolution of Ash-Sham, “Death rather than humiliation” and “The people want to bring down the regime” have once again resonated. This follows the blessed movement that started in the liberated northern regions against all oppressors and autocrats who violated sanctities, oppressed the people, and conspired against the Revolution of Ash-Sham and its people.
As usual with tyrants, whether they are high-ranking or low-ranking, and as usual with the countries conspiring against the Revolution of Ash-Sham, attempts have begun to distort the course of the new revolutionary movement away from the constants of the Revolution of Ash-Sham. This is done by marginalizing its demands, restricting them to livelihood and service-related matters at times, and directing them towards partial divisive projects at other times. Additionally, there is an attempt to steer the popular movement and depict it as a demand for the deadly American political solution, and to implement Resolution 2254, which preserves the regime of murder and crime and its secular constitution, even if the faces of the actors and collaborators change.
In pursuit of this, they have highlighted in the media anyone who was willing to serve their projects and their deadly political solution., They presented them as leaders of the new revolutionary movement, while obscuring and distorting the genuine movement of the sincere. This is an attempt to seize leadership of the popular movement and divert it from its intended path.
Faced with this cunning scheme, the Revolution of Ash-Sham and its renewed movement must cling to the constants of the blessed Revolution of Ash-Sham to escape the plots woven against it. It is imperative for the blessed Ash-Sham revolution to adhere to these fundamental principles:
1. Continue the revolution until the criminal regime is overthrown and the rule of Islam is established in its place, without settling for deceptive aesthetic changes.
2. Put an end to the meddling of conspiring countries in the Revolution of Ash-Sham and sever ties with them, rejecting all forms of support from them. We have witnessed how the support of these countries and their conspiratorial policies have led us to ruin, causing us loss and abandonment, just when the revolution was on the brink of overthrowing the criminal regime that had become trapped in Damascus.
3. Establish a sincere and aware political leadership from among our brothers and sons, individuals who have proven their honesty, steadfastness, resilience, and independence through their stances and trials. Reject all manufactured leaderships associated with international projects and external conspiratorial agendas. Reject those who have embraced the ropes of conspirators, oppressed the people of the Revolution of Ash-Sham, and capitalized on their sacrifices.
4. Uniting around a clear, unifying project rooted in our Aqeeda, we hold fast to the rope of Allah and sever ties with all others. We place our trust solely in Allah, relying on Him for protection and support, for victory lies only in His Hands, Azza wa Jal. He grants it to the truthful among His servants. Indeed, He has informed us through His saying:
((يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تَنصُرُوا اللهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ))
“O you who have believed, if you support Allah, He will support you and plant firmly your feet.” [Muhammad:7]
O Truthful Revolutionaries in the Land of Ash-Sham:
The years of the long revolution have proven that the Revolution of Ash-Sham is resilient against all conspiracies, no matter how grand they may be. The flames of the revolution still burn within the hearts of its children. If we hold onto our principles and remain truthful to Allah in our stances, He will not abandon us. His support will be with us, and His victory will be ours, Inshallah.
So let us move forward with insight, placing our trust solely in Allah, until we overthrow the criminal regime with its constitution, all its components, and symbols, in order to establish the rule of Islam under the shade of Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood. This Caliphate will save the worshipers and bring them happiness in this world and the Hereafter, pleasing the Lord of all beings. He says in His clear Revelation:
((إِن يَنْصُرْكُمُ اللهُ فَلَا غَالِبَ لَكُمْ وَإِن يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَن ذَا الَّذِي يَنصُرُكُم مِّنْ بَعْدِهِ وَعَلَى اللهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ))
“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely.” [Aali-Imran: 160].
