in remembrance of Omar Mokhtar - Lion of Cyrenaica.



Video klip diatas ini dibikin khas sempena memperingati syahidnya Omar Mokhtar - Singa Cyrenaica (Lion of the Cyrenaica) yang dihukum gantung sampai mati pada 15 September 1931, dikem tahanan pelarian Suluq, tanahairnya Libya.

Penceritaan sejarah dalam klip diatas diambil daripada skrip video olahan Hassan Aziz's Filem. Manakala keseluruhan filem itu disedut pula daripada filem Lion of the Desert (1981) arahan Mustafa Akad yang juga telah mengarahkan film The Message.


Salah satu perkara menarik yang telah disentuh oleh pengkisahan sejarah diatas adalah mengenai perjumpaan para ulama sedunia, yang mana secara tradisinya mereka in semua bertemu di Makkah untuk bertukar-tukar fikiran dan bersalin nota/polisi sesama mereka, khasnya dalam perihal mentadbir hal ehwal dunia Islam, yang pada masa itu dibawah seliaan Khalifah Ottoman.


Telah dikisahkan bahawa pada masa keadaan begitu krtikal di Libya, Omar Mokhtar cuba mendapatkan bantuan Sharif Mekkah dan para ulama di Mekkah tetapi gagal. Mereka juga tidak terdaya membantu dek kerana seluruh dunia Islam pada waktu sedang diserang hebat oleh penjajah daripada segenap penjuru. Oleh itu Omar Mokhtar terpaksa berjuang sendirian menghadapi Fascist Italian.


Panji perang tentera Turki yang berjuang bersama Sanussi Movement menghalang kemasukan tentera  Italy di wilayah Libya.

Tersebut juga dalam sejarah mengenai Imam Syamil ulama Dagestan yang berjumpa Syeikh Abdul Qadir dari Algeria di Makkah iaitu sebelum seluruh wilayah Balkan milik Empire Islam Ottoman jatuh ketangan Russia. Siri Jejak Rasul di Russia yang lepas telah pun membuktikan bahawa wilayah Dagestan di Russia telah dibuka oleh bani Hashim, tetesan daripada Saidina Hamzah R.A.

Zeppelin antara teknologi perang moden tentera Italy tetapi tidak berjaya mengalahkan tentera berkuda Sanussi Movement dan Turki di Libya.

Untuk pengetahuan pembaca, dahulunya perkumpulan para ulama sedunia memang bertemu di Makkah. Ini termasuklah (sekadar menyebut nama tanpa menyusun tahun) Syeikh Zaini Dahlan, Syeikh Ahmad Fatani, Syeikh Abdul Jalil, Syeikh Arshad al Banjari, Syeikh Abdul Samad Palembang, Tokku Paloh, Haji Abdul Rahman Limbong, Tuan Hussein Kedah, Syeikh Jarum Derga dan lain-lainnya.

Imam Syamil @ Imam Ali of Dagestan

(In 1869 he was given permission to perform the Hajj to the holy city of Mecca. He traveled first from Kiev to Odessa and then sailed toIstanbul, where he was greeted by Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz. He became a guest at the Imperial Topkapı Palace for a short while and left Istanbul on a ship reserved for him by the Sultan. After completing his pilgrimage to Mecca, he died in Medina in 1871 while visiting the city, and was buried in the Jannatul Baqi, a historical graveyard in Medina where many prominent personalities from Islamic history are interred. )

Syeik Abdul Qadir al Jaza'iri (Algeria)

(In his childhood he memorized the Qur'an and was trained in horsemanship, theology and linguistics, and received an education far better than that of his peers. In 1825, he set out for the Muslim pilgrimage, hajj, with his father. While in Mecca, he encountered Imam Shamil; the two spoke at length on different topics)

(jangan pelik tengok tahun-tahun mereka bertemu dan tahun-tahun mereka menunaikan haji tuuu.jangan pelik macamana seorang di pergunungan Caucasus dan seorang di Utara Afrika boleh kenal sembang panjang. Jangan pelik dipenghujungnya Imam Syamil mendapat tempat di Jannatul Baqi)

Mereka ini duduk semeja berbincang mengenai masalah umat ditempat masing-masing khasnya di Nusantara, antara lainnya termasuklah mengatur strategi perang menghadapi bahaya dan ancaman penjajah barat dan juga Thai.


Allahyarham Omar Mokhtar digantung

Makam allahyarham Omar Mokhtar

Walau apapun kesudahannya, diharap klip diatas dapatlah mengubat sedikit kerinduan kita semua pada para syuhada yang tidak pernah luntur semangat juang mempertahankan saki baki wilayah Islam sebelum dicerai berai umpama kuih oleh penjajah seterusnya menerbitkan zaman NWO yang kita ketahui hari ini.

Oleh itu, dengan begitu rendah hati, TMP mempersembahkan in remembrance of Syedi Omar Mokhtar - Lion of the Desert daripada perspektif yang mungkin dapat mewakili 'generasi cucu-cicit' yang tersangat jauh makan wa zaman apatah lagi untuk menghulurkan bantuan buat seorang perjuang yang boleh diumpamakan sebagai atuk, yang tidak terdaya-kudrat walau kuat semangat melawan kekejaman penjajahan kuffar.

Jika ada terdapat salah dan silap dalam pembentangan video ini didahului dengan ucapan maaf.

Semoga bermanafaat.

Wassalam

the script:


"we will never surrender, we will win or we die.you will have the next generation to fight and after the next and next. as for me I will live longer than my hangman" - Omar Mokhtar.

19th century was a difficult period for the entire muslim world. and after several centuries of simultaneously rise, a simultaneously fall of the entire muslim world had begun. Mughals had almost collapsed and Ottoman Caliphate was also disintegrating. 1878 all the European Powers met in Berlin to decide who will take which province of the breaking Ottoman Empire.

In this meeting it was decided that Italy will be given Libya. in those days there was no country  called Libya...and it's territory came under Ottoman Caliphate. and it was governed by the Ottoman Caliphate and they were supported by a very powerful political and religious group which also had strong influence in many part of North Africa. This group was called "Senussi Movement".

Senussi was religious and spiritual order, but they were also involved in politics and they use to work in many different areas and regions. The leaders of all those regions were the biggest supporters of the Ottoman Caliphate and they wanted unity among all the muslims. They did not want disunity among the Turks, non-turks and Arabs. And they always tried to unite all the muslims.

In 1878 after the Berlin Conference, Italy had it's eyes set on the Ottoman province of today's Libya. But they did not have the courage. For many years their press and politicians did massive propaganda in their country in order to get public support to attact Libya.

identical to the massive propaganda and psychological warfare which U.S did before attacking Iraq.

This same propaganda Italian press did against the Turks. For several years especially against the Turkish government which was today's Libya.

They said the Turks were torturing Arabs and Berbers and Italians should help them in the name of Human Rights to protect their honor and to liberate them from pernicious Turks.

Then they said that the Berbers making alliances with other nations and supporting the against the Europeans.

Now it was the start of 20th Century and by this time the Ottoman Caliphate had become really weak. We know that Ottoman Caliphate started collapsing after the First World War and by 1923 the caliphate was abolished.

Now the Italians thought that it was the right time to invade Libya. Because they also had intellingence reports that Turkish garrison in Benghazi and Tarabulus only had 4000 Turkish soldiers and the rest of the garrisson  had local Arab Bedouin and Berber infantry. 

in 1911, Italians came with a large naval armada and attacked this region. This is called Turkic - Italian war and it was before the First World War.

In 1911 when Italians landed here, the first thing thing which they did was that they kidnapped around 100,000 muslim, men, women and children and took them to Italy in their ships. and after that nobody knows what happened to them. Nobodu knows...even today in Libya day of 1911 is remembered as a Black Day!

Italian thought that after landing here they would be supported by locals and the locals would revolt against the Turks but then what followed was the complete opposite of they had planned.

This war will be called the Battle of Tarabalus or Tripoli. In the Battle of Tripoli, Arabs and Turks united. Italian plans of dividing the muslims failed.

And combined army of Arabs and Turks surrounded the Italians and slaugthered them so unrelentingly. That each and every soldier of the 20,000 Italians landing force was carnaged!

This ignominious defeat in the Battle of Tripoli was a reality check for the Italians. Italians were taken by surprise. Then another Battle took place in Tabruk. In that battle muslims had 28,000 soldiers  made up of 20, 000 Arabs and 8000 Turks.

This is also historic battle because in this battle for the fist time aircraft were usd in hostile environment - bombs were dropped from aircraft and for the first time armoured vehicle were used in this battlefield.

The technolgy comparison between the Italians and the Muslim Forces was like today's superpower against desert bedoiuns. The muslims had virtually even though they were province of the Ottoman Caliphate.

Although minor, the war was a significant precursor of the First World War as it sparked nationalism in the Balkan states.The Italo-Turkish War saw numerous technological advances used in warfare, notably the aeroplane. On October 23, 1911, an Italian pilot, Captain Carlo Piazza, flew over Turkish lines on the world's first aerial reconnaissance mission, and on November 1, the first ever aerial bomb was dropped by Sottotenente Giulio Gavotti, on Turkish troops in Libya, from an early model of Etrich Taube aircraft.

You should remember one thing about the Senussi Movement, even though the British had successfully influenced and provoked the Arab World against the Turks which planned successfully executed by Lawrence of Arabia, with support of Sharif of Mecca (which I myself try to reason at my best by pointing it to the Young Turks movement) massacred the Turks so ruthlessly. 

That it also made Allama Iqbal write his heart breaking poem " Hashemi is selling the honor of the religion of Mustafa...as the life and blood Turk is being robbed!"

But in north Afrika the British could not succeed because of the Senussi Movement.

Senussi declare Jihad and supported the Ottoman Caliphate.

And they fought alongside the Turkish Army agaisnt the Italians in such manner that That the Italians even with their several hundred thousand soldiers and their powerful forces could not capture this small region and the war went into stalemate.

However the disintegrating and weakening Ottoman Caliphate  had to abandoned Libya because of the fight that they the have to take on in the Balkan. On one side Imam Shamil's resistance against the Russia had failed in Dagestan. And the Russian had invaded Georgoa, Azerbaijan, Armenia and all those regions which belonged to the Ottoman Caliphate.

Ottoman Caliphate and the Mughals were destroyed and there was nobody left to help them. At this time the Muslim Boxers were also defending the last China Emperor that was invaded by 8 nations. Left alone the khalifah in Nusantara which history never told that they were there before. Therefore the Islamic Empire was cut into pieces!

So the Caliphate decided to withdraw all their soldiers from Africa and hand over the entire Africa campaign to the Senussi Movement.

Syedi Umar Mukhtar takes command of the forces and declare Jihad agaisnt the Italians. Syedi Umar Mukhtar was also called SidiUmar by his people with love. He was 70 years old, he was a school teacher a pious man and the leader of his region and he was highly respected in entire North Africa.

When he declared Jihad, then all the tribes, Berbers, Arabs and African supported him and they started and extraordinary jihad which lasted for 20 years.

By 1928 , Senussi Movement had become so strong under leadership of Umar Mukhtar that almost entire Libya was liberated.

Italian only had Tripoly, Benghazi and some areas next to the sea left under their control and all the remaining areas were taken back by the Mujahideens.

After 1928, the Italians with Musollini at helm, regrouped and rearmed with new advance weaponry and with new policies were sent to recapture Libya. Genera; Braziani was sent to break the resistance at any lost even if it meant killing several hundreds thousand muslims.

Musollini just wanted this Senussi resistance broken. So Braziani cut the supply line from Egypt, create concentration camps ( It is said that 500, 000 Libyans were sent to these concetration camp with only a few thousand came out alive), destroying villages and cities. Libya was completely destroyed and made into a desert.

Nobody care about them, the entire world was silent. These  are the people who try to preach muslims "Human Rights" today with their hands covered with blood of innocent muslims.

Now Umar Moktar requested Sharif of Mecca for help.

In those days tradition was such that all muslims use to meet in Mecca for Haj and they use to exchange notes and make policies.

Even in 1853 Abdul Qadir came from Algeria and Imam Shamil (Syeikh Syamil) had come form Dagestan and they met in Mecca. 

Every one in Mecca were aware of Umar Mukhtar's problem and everyone in Mecca decided that "something should be done"

But their "something should be done" was just like the "something should be done" of the O.I.C today.

Muhammad Asad @ Leopold Weiss a converted Germany Jew came to help. After crossing border and met Umar Mukhtar he went back to Mecca, but when he reached Mecca a news broke out that Umar Mukhtar was captured.

The rest was history.

The fall of muslims which started in 1757 up to now does not come in one day. It take several centuries, and even it's rise does not come in one night.

You need to make sacrifices , think positively and unite.

After all those war or resistance, the time of the of entire muslim ummah has come.

Even though some muslims nations are still fighting wars of resistance
