Syria and Iraq and Defending the Land

Posts from 2015 about the events in Syria and from 2012, in which the Iraq invasion by Daesh (ISIS) was predicted.
Ahmed Alhasan احمد الحسن said:

“{Permission has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, God is competent to give them victory. *They are those who have been evicted from their homes without right, only because they say, “Our Lord is God.” And were it not that God checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of God is much mentioned. And God will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, God is Powerful and Exalted in Might. *And they are those who, if We give them authority in the land, establish prayer, give alms, enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. And to God belongs the outcome of all matters.} (Quran, Chapter “The Pilgrimage” 22:39-41).
Long before some Wahhabis from the organization known as Daesh seized control of some regions and provinces in Iraq, I made a statement that it would happen.
Below is what I wrote on December 16, 2012 on this blessed page:
“On the occasion of the Battle of Siffin, the entrance of the prisoners from the progeny of Muhammad to Syria and what is happening today in Syria, I repeat my invitation again, and direct it to the Muslims everywhere and especially in Iraq, to gather around the banner of truth of al-Mahdi to confront al-Qaeda, those slayers and those Sufyanis who gather today in Syria with the support of the US government and its lackeys, who consider Iraq their next step.”
After everything that has happened in Iraq, officers and soldiers in the Iraqi Army who believe in the truthful call of al-Mahdi sent many questions concerning their obligations. I explained to them at the time that their obligation is to fight and to prevent those criminals from seizing control of land in Iraq and the sacred places. It was Allah’s wish that some of those officers and soldiers were martyred while defending their land, belongings, and their places of sanctity.
Furthermore, the ansar defended the city of Balad, as well as Tal Afar before its downfall. The ansar in Najaf have told me that they informed the local government of their willingness to defend Najaf. Regarding Karbala, the believers told me that the local government that governs Karbala has shut down the mosque [or Husseiniyya] of the ansar of Imam al-Mahdi, the reason being that the believers in Karbala informed them of their willingness to defend Karbala and sacrifice their blood, so the reaction of the local government, or the gang that rules Karbala, was to shut down the mosque of the ansar of Imam al-Mahdi in Karbala. Unfortunately, this is the state of Iraq in general. It is governed by the rule of gangs, or the rule: ‘whoever overpowers, achieves.’ There is no law that governs the governors of Iraq, nor is there one to which they refer, not even the law they wrote themselves.
Since the USA entered the country, Iraqi governance (whether central or regional) has been distinguished by its randomness, disorderliness, and gang mentality. This was one of the most significant reasons behind the downfall of Tal Afar and the other regions of Iraq.
I do not wish to criticise anyone here, as the situation is extremely critical and it does not allow for too much talk. Rather, it requires sacrifice from us and from others in order to protect the sacred places, their belongings and the land. I have said all that I have said quite briefly for a reason that is yet to come.
What I want to say today in order to establish proof is that the situation has been very dangerous since Wahhabi organizations seized al-Anbar in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria. These organizations have started moving towards Baghdad. Time does not favor Baghdad, Karbala, Najaf and other Iraqi provinces. This is why we are ready to form a fighting force to defend the land of Iraq and the sacred places. If the central Iraqi government is ready to cooperate with the Ansar of Imam al-Mahdi to defend the land of Iraq and the sacred places, let the Prime Minister of Iraq or his official representative, the Minister of Defense or his official representative, or the Minister of Interior Affairs or his official representative, contact the Official Office in the Holy City of Najaf to arrange the formation of fighting forces, providing them with arms and preparing them to defend the land of Iraq and the places of sanctity.
O God, bear witness that we have delivered the message and established the complete proof within which there is no confusion.”
