    Fake Salafi Refutation

    How Saudia Government (Malik Fahd) has helped the kuffar against Muslimeen and the assistance they have given them.

    Saudi Arabia's help during war was more extensive, officials say.

    By Associated Press
    Published April 25, 2004

    WASHINGTON - During the Iraq war, Saudi Arabia secretly has helped the United States far more than has been acknowledged, allowing operations from at least three air bases, permitting special forces to stage attacks from Saudi soil and providing cheap fuel, U.S. and Saudi officials say.

    The American air campaign against Iraq was essentially managed from inside Saudi borders, where military commanders operated an air command center and launched refueling tankers, F-16 fighter jets and sophisticated intelligence gathering flights, according to the officials.

    Much of the assistance has been kept quiet for more than a year by both countries for fear it would add to instability inside the kingdom. Many Saudis oppose the war, and U.S. presence on Saudi soil has been used by Osama bin Laden to build his terror movement.

    But senior political and military officials from both countries told the Associated Press the Saudi royal family permitted widespread military operations to be staged from inside the kingdom during the coalition force's invasion of Iraq.

    While the heart of the ground attack came from Kuwait, thousands of special forces soldiers were permitted to stage their operations into Iraq from inside Saudi Arabia, the officials said. These staging areas became essential once Turkey declined to allow U.S. forces to operate from its soil.

    In addition, U.S. and coalition aircraft launched attacks, reconnaissance flights and intelligence missions from three Saudi air bases, not just the Prince Sultan Air Base, where U.S. officials have acknowledged activity.

    Between 250 and 300 Air Force planes staged from Saudi Arabia, including AWACS, C-130s, refueling tankers and F-16 fighter jets during the height of the war, the officials said. Air and military operations during the war were permitted at the Tabuk air base and Arar regional airport near the Iraq border, the officials said.

    Saudis also agreed to permit search and rescue missions to stage and take off from their soil, the officials said.

    Gen. T. Michael Moseley, a top Air Force general who was a key architect of the air campaign in Iraq, called the Saudis "wonderful partners," although he agreed to discuss their help only in general terms.

    "We operated the command center at Saudi Arabia. We operated airplanes out of Saudi Arabia, as well as sensors, and tankers," Moseley said. He said he treasured "their counsel, their mentoring, their leadership and their support."

    U.S.-Saudi cooperation raised eyebrows last week after it was disclosed that President Bush shared his Iraq war plans with Saudi ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan before the start of the war.

    Some lawmakers have demanded to know why a foreigner was brought in on private war planning.

    When asked about the briefing, Bandar played down the extent of Saudi help. "We were allies. And we helped our American friends in the way that was necessary for them. And that was the reality," he said.

    U.S. and Saudi officials said Bandar was briefed several times before the war as part of securing Saudi assistance, and received regular updates as U.S. needs changed.

    Preparations for U.S. operations inside Saudi Arabia started in 2002 when the Air Force awarded a contract to a Saudi company to provide jet fuel at four airfields or bases inside the kingdom, documents show.

    When the war started, the Saudis allowed cruise missiles to be fired from Navy ships across their air space into Iraq. A few times missiles went off course and landed inside the kingdom, officials said.

    The Saudis provided tens of millions of dollars in discounted oil, gas and fuel for American forces. During the war, a stream of oil delivery trucks at times stretched for miles outside the Prince Sultan air base, said a senior U.S. military planner.

    The Saudis also were influential in keeping down world oil prices amid concern over what might happen to Iraqi oil fields. They increased production by 1.5-million barrels a day during the run-up to war and helped keep Jordan - which had relied on Iraqi oil - supplied.

    Saudi officials said they provided significant military and intelligence help on everything from issues of Muslim culture to securing the Saudi-Iraqi border from fleeing Saddam Hussein supporters.

    Sheikh Ibn Baz stated (Al-Fatawa 1/274): "There is a consensus amongst the scholars that whoever supports the disbelievers against the believers (Dhahar Al-Kuffar 'Ala Al-Muslimeen), and assists them by any means of assistance, then he is a disbeliever just like them (the disbelievers he supported)…"

    Information on the facilities in Saudia Arabia

    The president's remark came immediately in the wake of reports here that US special forces had conducted operations in Afghanistan and news that Saudi Arabia had finally allowed use of its command centre at the modern Prince Sultan air base, southwest of Riyadh, for any possible action against Al Qaida.

    A Gulf diplomat told AFP Friday that Saudi Arabia had agreed to allow the United States to use state-of-the-art U.S.-built air command facilities at Prince Sultan Air Base to fight bin Laden and the Taliban.

    "Saudi Arabia has no objection to the use of the facilities at Prince Sultan Air Base," 100 kilometers [60 miles] south of Riyadh, said the diplomat, who requested anonymity.

    The Pentagon announced last week that it was dispatching a top Air Force commander, Lt. Gen. Charles F. Wald, to Saudi Arabia to oversee air attacks against Afghanistan from a command post at the Prince Sultan Air Base at Al Kharj, about 70 miles outside Riyadh.

    No wonder, then, that the Saudi government reacted with horror and confusion when American officials declared that they were using the same base as headquarters for any retaliation against Afghanistan. In the end, the Saudi regime probably will give American forces permission to use the base, as some reports suggested they had on September 27th—but it will keep very quiet about it. (Economist)

    The Saudis approved Pentagon use of the Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC), a multibillion-dollar U.S.-built facility at the Prince Sultan base, to direct the air war against the Taliban… (CNN)

    The nerve center of the air war, the Combined Air Operations Center at Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia, regularly availed itself of real-time television pictures of compounds and convoys provided by Predator cameras. New data systems aboard B-1 and B-52 bombers enabled them to receive targeting information en-route to Afghanistan, in a number of cases in real-time from Special Forces on the ground.



    At-Tibyān fī Kufri Man A'ān al-Amrīkān

    (The Exposition Regarding the Disbelief of the One That Assists the Americans)

    Shaykh Nāsir bin Hamad al-Fahd

    Introduction to the Translation by the Noble Shaykh, Nāsir ibn Hamad al-Fahd

    In the Name of Allāh, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

    All praise is due to Allāh, and may Salāh and Salām be upon the Messenger of Allah, to proceed: Know, my Muslim brother, that from the principles of the religion of Islām is disbelieving in the Tāghūt, and this is half of tawhīd; its other half being belief in Allāh, as Allah the Most High says:


    فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِٱلطَّاغُوتِ وَيْؤْمِن بِٱللَّهِ فَقَدِ ٱسْتَمْسَكَ بِٱلْعُرْوَةِ ٱلْوُثْقَىٰ
    Whoever disbelieves in the Tāghūt and believes in Allāh, then he has held unto the firm hand hold.


    And He said:

    وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ رَّسُولاً أَنِ ٱعْبُدُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱجْتَنِبُواْ ٱلْطَّاغُوتَ
    And we have sent in every people a Messenger saying worship Allāh and avoid the Tāghūt.

    And from disbelief in the Tāghūt is: declaring (ones) disavowal from Kufr and its people, and hating them, and having enmity towards them, as Allah the Most High says:

    قَدْ كَانَتْ لَكُمْ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ فِيۤ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَٱلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ إِذْ قَالُواْ لِقَوْمِهِمْ إِنَّا بُرَءآؤُاْ مِّنْكُمْ وَمِمَّا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ كَفَرْنَا بِكُمْ وَبَدَا بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمُ ٱلْعَدَاوَةُ وَٱلْبَغْضَآءُ أَبَداً حَتَّىٰ تُؤْمِنُواْ بِٱللَّهِ وَحْدَهُ
    There has been a good example in Ibrāhīm and those who were with him, when they said to their people: “We are free from you and what you worship besides Allāh, we have disbelieved in you, and enmity and hatred has begun between us and you until you believe in Allāh alone.”

    Shaykh ul-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullāhu ta’āla) said: “For Allāh has ordered us to follow in the way of Ibrāhīm and those who were with him, as they declared Barā’ah (innocence, disavowal) from the Mushrikūn and what they worship besides Allāh, and al-Khalīl (Ibrāhīm) said: “I am free from what you worship, except the One who created me. Indeed He shall guide me,” and having Barā’ah is opposite of allegiance, and the foundation of Barā’ah is hatred, and the foundation of allegiance is love, and this is because the reality of tawhīd is to not love except Allāh, and to love what Allāh loves, thus he doesn’t love except for Allāh, and does not hate except for Allāh.”

    Many of the Muslims have been tribulated by living in the abodes of the Kāfirūn, for various reasons, and the ruling upon residing in the lands of the Kāfirūn has details which the people of knowledge have mentioned, generally though, it is categorized into three:

    The First Category: If the Muslim is capable of openly declaring his religion, and from this religion is disbelieving in the Tāghūt, then it is permissible for him to reside there, and if he is a caller to Allah the Most High amongst the Kuffār, then it may even be praiseworthy and recommended for him to reside there, and this was the condition of the Prophets when they lived amongst their people.

    The Second Category: If he is unable to openly declare his religion, and is able to migrate to a land where he can openly declare his religion in it, then it becomes obligatory to do so.

    The Third Category: If he is unable to openly declare his religion, and is unable to migrate, then he is from the weak excused ones, but he must refrain from interacting with the Kuffār and mixing with them as much as possible.And, all this has detailing (elsewhere).

    For this reason, it is obligatory upon the Muslim residing in the abodes of the Kuffār to actualize the Millah of Ibrāhīm (‘alayhis-salām) by way of declaring Barā’ah from the Kuffār and their religion, and to openly show them hatred and enmity, and I wish to make aware of two issues related to this matter:

    The First Issue:
    Actualizing the Millah of Ibrāhīm does not mean leaving calling the Kuffār to Islām in a nice manner, for the Messenger (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam) was open to the Kuffār from his people in his declaration of their Kufr, and his enmity and hatred towards them, and this did not prevent him from calling them to Islām by softness, mildness, and with the good reminder. And (in this matter) two people have fallen into wrong:

    1. Those who see nothing except softness in calling people to Islām, so he left openly showing enmity and hatred to the disbelievers, and thus fell into having allegiance (towards them).

    2. Those who see nothing but hatred and enmity towards them, so he ignored calling them to Islām by mildness, and this one his condition – despite being more complete then the first – except he is lacking, for the most complete manner to fulfill and actualize the Millah of Ibrāhīm is by calling the Kuffār (to Islām) and this is the condition of the Prophets (‘alayhim as-salām).

    The Second Issue: The actualization of the Millah of Ibrāhīm does not mean being treacherous to the Kuffār or cheating them or their wealth if they give a contract of passage (or safety) to the Muslim, for the Muslim, if he is granted a contract of protection and passage by way of an agreed upon contract with the Muslim, even if only by way of custom, then it becomes prohibited on him to be treacherous or deceive them.And here, between your hands, dear brother, is the book at-Tibyān fī Kufri man a’ān al-Amrīkān, and it discusses one of some of the great explicit matters of the Millah of Ibrāhīm, and I mean by this, the issue of helping the Kuffār and supporting them against the Muslims, and it is one of the nullifiers of Islām as will become clear to you, Allah willing.And some brothers – may Allāh reward them and increase them in reward – had gone about translating it to the English language, hoping by it, to clarify this matter to those who do not know Arabic, and this is a special introduction for this translation.

    I ask Allāh, the Glorified the Most High to forgive the ones who wrote, translated, published and read it from amongst the Muslims, and I ask Him the Glorified to help us all to that which He loves and is pleased with, and to grant us sincerity, and to accept from our actions, and to keep us firm until we meet Him, and may Salāh and Salām be upon our Messenger Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions.

    Nāsir bin Hamad al-Fahd
