The following written interview was given by Uthman Badar, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia, to World Future Online (WFOL) and published here on their website.
 
WFOL: The Europeans in cohort with Obama are stating the world has changed and Libya crisis in an international one. They however depart from this line of conduct when it comes to North Korea where people are really starving or Saudi Arabia when the regime attacks civilians. What will be your comment on this.
 
UB: Hypocritical stances from Western officials are now expected by everyone, and no longer come as a shock. They display numerous double standards in their foreign policy. This is because they have no fixed principles or morals. They only have fixed economic and political interests.
 
We saw this hypocrisy clearly with the case of Egypt. After propping up the oppressive regime of Mubarak for decades, pumping it with $1.5 billion annually, using it for torture by rendition and the like, President Obama simply jumped ship once it was clear that Mubarak would go and asserted that America stood with the people and their rights. 
 
In reality America’s respect for the rights of people has already been exposed before the world in Guantanamo Bay, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Dilemmas of the Arab Spring

Introduction

For the Muslim World, 2011 will remain long in the memory when the history books are finally written. What began with a single man in the markets of Tunisia spread to thousands on the streets in Cairo and evolved to hundreds of thousands demanding political change for the entire region. The self immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia created a sweeping wave, which crossed the artificial border to Egypt, then to Libya, Yemen and Bahrain until it engulfed most of the Muslim world. The Arab spring has seen many brave the streets to protest and change the status quo which has dominated the political, economic and social landscape for so long. The reaction of the Muslim rulers was as predictable as it was brutal with violent clampdowns leaving thousands dead and many more injured.
