In 2014 Shaykh Abdalqadir, rahimahullah, said: “The removal of Hamas will change nothing. There still remains a nation divided by its two contrary elements …” The nation he is referring to is Israel. The first element is that the citizens of Israel suffer from post-concentration-camp-psychosis disorder. The Shaykh explained it as follows: “The apparent ease with which educated middle-aged men and women daily on television not only approve but call for the massacre of women and children next-door in Gaza is simply not explainable rationally. It is part of this psychosis.” The second element is: “the Israeli inability to deal with matters by military practice. Bombing and droning are acts of cowardice. The Israelis cannot role-play militarism.” Israel cannot deal with the people it rules over with honour, justice, bravery and nobility. The Israeli political class and armed forces have none of that. They never conquered Palestine, they acquired it by stealth, theft, lies and fraud. Behind it all are business corporations, the worst of which are banks and the deadly sin of riba, that is, fractional reserve banking, interest and derivatives. What exactly did the Israelis steal? According to Islamic law the whole country of Palestine including the natural resources within its territorial waters.
Shaykh Abdalqadir says: “Absurd little Israel, with its multi-racial citizens who insist that they are Jews and the descendants of Sayyidina Ibrahim, may Allah be pleased with him, although their own scientists have admitted that this is a fantasy (see The Myth of the Jewish Race by Raphael Patai and Jennifer Patai), brought into being by known terrorists, the Stern gang and so on, governed over its short history by these terrorists, and finally fighting a war against the indigenous people of their land under a terrorist named as such by their own judiciary while they embark on a genocide of the native people. Palestinians, the Arab Navaho!”
How is absurd little Israel able to slaughter thousands of Palestinians, be accused of war crimes, have United Resolutions passed against it and be able to continue genocide with impunity? Shaykh Abdalqadir explains that: “1945 saw the creation of the ultimate nihilistic phase of kufr. It aspired to a world government, a world police and already laid the foundations of a world bank and single currency. The nation state was over and now the world was governed by a totally unelected oligarchy represented by three zones of power, commodities, media and financial, while the third of these represented the inner circle of power. Current events show us that all the nations lie subservient to the Oligarchic Triad while Israel remains the ideological and imperialist entity which has survived and continues above and beyond the ruin of the national states.” Israel was created as a military base to secure energy supplies for the financial and industrial centres of the oligarchs in Europe and America. The United Nations Organisation was formed to provide global governance, that is, one world government and this has been achieved now in a most subversive way. Let me explain.
At the United Nations General Assembly on September 20, 2021, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned: “I am here to sound the alarm. The world must wake up. We are on the edge of an abyss—and moving in the wrong direction. Our world has never been more threatened or more divided. We face the greatest cascade of crises in our lifetimes… A surplus in some countries. Empty shelves in others. This is a moral indictment of the state of our world.” Guterres called for a total overhaul of all human collective behaviour, thinking and traditions. This is what was called the Great Reset of capitalism and formed the basis of a strategic partnership between the UN and the World Economic Forum (WEF) which was signed in a meeting held at United Nations headquarters between Guterres and World Economic Forum Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab. The WEF represents the world’s largest corporations. The partnership identified six areas of focus: financing the 2030 Agenda; climate change; health; digital cooperation; gender equality and empowerment of women; and education and skills. In reality the Great Reset is a coup d’état, a corporate takeover of global governance under the cover of ‘stakeholder capitalism’. Stakeholder capitalism is a trick, a sleight of hand and the World Economic Forum actually looks to entrench the power of the Oligarchic Triad. We can now add a fourth zone of power to the Triad, the tech companies which have now become enormously powerful. The WEF is promoting the idea that global capitalism should be transformed so that corporations no longer focus solely on serving shareholders but become custodians of society by creating good outcomes for customers, suppliers, employees, communities and other stakeholders. There are now over one hundred global standard-setting multistakeholder initiatives (MSIs) establishing guidelines and rules for a wide range of products and processes such as health care, cyber security, climate change etc. On closer examination one finds that the controlling stakeholders are the banks and their involvement in the process is disguised. This is exactly as Shaykh Abdalqadir said, bankers “enslave the world’s masses, expropriate their wealth, their commodities, their land and their children.”
Events leading to October 7, 2023
Within Gaza’s territorial waters, there are two main gas fields. Gaza Marine, the main field, and a second smaller field, the “Border Field” which straddles the international boundary separating Gaza’s territorial waters from Israel’s territorial waters. The reserves found in the two wells are estimated to be 1 trillion cubic feet. This is not a massive quantity of gas, but it is still more than sufficient to meet Palestinian needs for the next 15 years. It is estimated that these gas supplies would be depleted at current Palestinian consumption levels in Gaza and the West Bank. Oil deposits off the Gaza coast are also substantial.
Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, having accepted the two-state solution, said it would allow in principle the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority to develop the natural gas field off the coast with Egypt and partner companies that would oversee the gas exploration and extraction.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the creation of IMEC, the India-Middle East-Europe Corridor. during his September 22, 2023 address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York. This is an alternative to the Chinese BRI, Belt and Road Initiative, the New Silk Road. IMEC is comprised of a multi-modal transport corridor connecting India’s west coast with the UAE by sea, and a rail route crossing the Arabian Peninsula to the Israeli port of Haifa. From Haifa goods will be transported by sea again to Europe through the Greek port of Piraeus. Plans for the corridor also include pipelines for hydrogen produced in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and natural gas produced in Israel and telecommunication connections. Plans for the David Ben-Gurion Canal were announced in 1963 as an alternative to the Suez Canal.
Once the India-Middle East-Europe Corridor was announced it was clear to Hamas that they would be sidelined from negotiations and the Palestinian Authority, under Mahmoud Abbas, would be regarded as the only government of Palestine. This set off the Hamas attacks on Israel on October 7, 2023 resulting in the postponement of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit to Turkiye and the historic agreements between Saudi Arabia and Israel that were to be signed on October 10.
Millions of people march all over the world calling on their governments to stop the carnage unleashed by Israel and impotent Muslim political classes beg for a ceasefire, humanitarian corridors and UN resolutions. Unable to stop them the entire world watches on as the Israelis go about their evil business. Shaykh Abdalqadir explains why: “The horror of this modern age is not the annihilation of millions in Nazi Death Camps and Stalin’s Gulags, nor is it the obliteration of a whole society in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is not the slaughter and torture of the innocents. The horror of this age is the somnambulistic helplessness of the masses to ACT in order to stop the global holocaust. It is this unarguable condition of mankind which permits us to define the technic society as a psychosis.” What is this psychosis?
Shaykh Abdalqadir tells us that it is capitalism. “Capitalism” he said “is not a system, it is a psychosis.” Psychosis is a term used in psychology which means loss of contact with reality. Accepting the thesis that capitalism works is totally losing contact with reality. The oligarchs have found a way to fool all the people all the time by devising an elaborate methodology for capitalist practice. Mediating between ourselves and the reality of the world around us is our brain, that is, our intellect. The intellect creates a series of structured pictures by which we understand the world around us. We view ourselves and the world around us through the prism of capitalism. Capitalism is based on atheistic scientific materialism; politics that is controlled by the oligarchs; economic theories designed to hide the realities of trade and commerce; and the destruction of families and traditional households. All of this is in turn supported by the educational system, media and public relations and enforced by the judiciary, police, armed forces and intelligence agencies.
Breaking the Spell
Shaykh Abdalqdir says: “what happens in life occurs simultaneously on three levels, the inward, the outward and the hidden.” In the hidden (the spiritual) we have to transcend the world (dunya) and its pleasures, in the inward (psychological) we must not view ourselves and the world around us through the prism of capitalism and in the outward (physical world) we should establish the ‘amal ahl al-Madina, that is the practice of the first three generations of Muslims in Madina when it functioned as the primary social, economic and political model for human societies until the end of time.
How did our Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, create the polity (dawla al-Islamiyya) of Madina. It was through the fara’id of Islam, the obligatory practices of Islam: the shahada (testifying that there is no god except Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah); salat (the five daily prayers); the zakat tax on wealth; the fasting of Ramadan and the hajj pilgrimage to Makka. The fara’id have both an individual and a social aspect to them and they all require leadership and authorisation for their proper implementation.
Shaykh Abdalqadir said: “We insist – Islam is not a political movement, but it IS a market movement.” The wealth of the world has been robbed from the people by a tiny group of billionaires who are at this moment destroying society and our planet. Shaykh Abdalqadir asked us to remember that physical and military opposition are the lifeblood of capitalist atheism. The revival of Islam is dependent on step by step turning away from capitalism. He said that: “They will not be defeated by military or guerrilla resistance. That is already covered in their system. They will be destroyed by the withdrawal of the God-obedient from the endebtment of numbers and contracts and their (our) setting up and usage of real-wealth currency, trust-based contracts of trade alongside a community aerated by a collected Zakat. Its being collected, not given, the cure for the retentive psyche.”
