Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah asserted that the Palestinians, backed by the Arabs and the Muslims, can defeat the Israelit scheme, adding that the “Greater Israel” has been eradicated by the Lebanese and the Palestinian Resistance.
Delivering a speech in the context of the International Conference for the Support of Palestine, Sayyed Nasrallah saluted the conferees and highlighted the importance of supporting the renovated Palestinian Intifada.
“What is going on now in Palestine reflects a lofty and sublime Jihad spirit,” his eminence said, “We also witness operations carried out almost on a daily basis.”
“Those actions reflect certainty and faith which fascinate the world as all the run over and stabbing operations end by martyrdom.”
Sayyed Nasrallah also said that the simplicity of the weaponry (cars, knives, …) used enables all the Palestinians to possess it and frustrates any attempt to confiscate it.
“Those innovative methods used by the Palestinians to carry out martyrdom operation reflect their awareness, not despair which struck a lot of people who resorted to drugs and many other worlds.”
Sayyed Nasrallah added that the new Palestinian Intifada surprised and frightened the Israelis and influenced its economics negatively.
“The Umma’s responsibilities towards al-Aqsa Mosque have been reiterated by the current Palestinian Intifada.”
Hezbollah leader pointed out that the Palestinians have always been confronting the Israelis on the behalf of all the Arabs and that considering the struggle as merely Palestinian-Israeli has always been a wrong approach.
“Despite the fact the ‘Greater Israel’ scheme has been frustrated, Israel is still powerful and threatens all the region’s peoples,” Sayyed Nasrallah added, “This requires political, media, and educational efforts.”
“The problem is that some people have become convinced that Israel does not pose any peril against the Umma.”
Sayyed Nasrallah noted that we feel hurt when we consider the fact the Umma sent in the past hundreds of thousands of fighters to Afghanistan to fight the Soviet occupation, while it has not sent those mujahidin to confront Israel, wondering whether Afghanistan is more sacred than Palestine.
Fighting the Russian occupation in Afghanistan was righteous, but why would not the same countries send all its human and materialistic capabilities to fight the Israelis in Palestine, Sayyed Nasrallah asked.
If all the suicide bombings which targeted the Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Nigerians, Pakistanis and Afghanis had been employed against the Israelis, it would have vanished, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who also stressed that those terrorist attacks aimed at destroying the Umma’s solidarity, armies and peoples.
Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the seditions stirred among the Muslims and the Christians in the region must be confronted, stressing that the Ulama must play a vital role in pervading awareness among the youths so that they stick to the supreme values and goals, including the Palestine and its Islamic and Christian sanctities.
