- Leader of the Islamist group Hizb Waed
Muhammad Showeiki is the leader of Hizb Waed (“Party of Promise”), one of four factions of the radical Islamist Hizb ut-Tahrir (“the Party of Liberation”) that has been outlawed in Germany, Russia and many other nations that regard it as subversive and linked to terrorists.
The aim of this party is to replace all existing governments with global Islamic government under a single ruler. It reportedly has tens of thousands of supporters organized in secret cells in as many as 40 countries.
Hizb Waed, according to Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed (who in 1986 established Hizb ut-Tahrir in the United Kingdom), currently “is only present in Jerusalem.”
Like Hizb Waed, Osama bin Laden has said that the goal of Al Qaeda is to “unite all Muslims and to establish a government which follows the rule of the Caliphs.”
