Omar Bakri Mohammed: "What do we want? (Crowd: Jihad!) What do we want? (Crowd: Jihad!) A man screams out: 'Fisa bil Allah' ('In the way of Allah' -meaning fighting) So we want jihad in the way of Allah for Bosnia, Palestine, Kashmir – is nobody disagree with that whenever anybody attack Muslim land, What do we want?" (Crowd: Jihad!) (video clip)
Abu Talha (Mohammed Malkawi): "We vow that we will accept nothing below Islam nothing less than Islam, and nothing else but Islam, and the full implementation of Islam, not only for us the Muslims, but for the entire world, because that's what the world needs today." (audio clip)
Sajjad Khan: "You see, what these examples show is that the Islamic system is the only system. I'm not presenting the Islamic system as one of the alternatives – or a alternative. This is a defeatist and apologetic approach. The Islamic system is the only alternative for mankind." (video clip)
Omar Bakri Mohammed: "We as Muslims, until now, we don't realize the serious position we are – we are supposed to rule the whole world; we are not supposed to rule only small part of the world. We support as Muslims to be the witnesses of the whole mankind, not, you know, by just by racism or by certain color or by certain nationality. By Islam." (audio clip)

We want ourselves to fight. We want to use the right name [meaning Islam]." (video clip)
Abu Talha: "And today the Ummah has come to realize that there is no solution for any of its problems but Islam. The Ummah has come to denounce all the tyrants of the world. They have come to denounce socialism, nationalism, democracy. It doesn't work. It simply is not working." (audio clip)

Just little kids

Little kids, talking as though they are authorities in Islam. Hizb al Tahrir is just a political party, like any other little political party. Using little kids with big egos to promote them to power. Get back to school kids.
They are not calling for hate

I don't see any hate in their speech to any race, in fact they consider all races are human beings and they are not better than each other because of their race like what many racists in this country.
They are calling for a universal view of Ruling, social, and economic. We should not mix their noble and intellectual message and divert the discussion to race and hate. They are very intellectual, and capitalism has really lost its ground

It seems we really only have free speach any more if what we are saying is something against this country. If I was talking about the ruling anyone, more less the world for a belief, I would be called a hate monger, biget or worse. If I called for the hate of someone I could easily be arrested and jailed.
Free speach, sure if you hate America, Christian, Whites, Conservatives!
