Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah asserted that the Palestinians, backed by the Arabs and the Muslims, can defeat the Israelis, 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 are witnessing 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 with martyrdom.”
Sayyed Nasrallah also said that the simplicity of the weapons (cars, knives, …) used enables all the Palestinians to possess them and frustrates any attempt to confiscate them.
“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 regarding 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, the Israelis 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 the Israelis, 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.
Sayyed Nasrallah also stressed that all the educational, media and religious elites in our Umma must exert all the possible efforts in order to curb the losses caused by the current regional conditions.
Hezbollah Secretary General presented a historical interpretation to clarify the main role of the Israelis in the region, stressing that ‘Israel’ represents the frontline of the colonial scheme led by the U.S. that targets the entire Umma with its resources, civilization and culture.
The struggle is between all the Arab-Islamic Umma and the Israelis backed by the West, Sayyed Nasrallah added.
According to Sayyed Nasrallah, ‘Israel’ receives all forms of support from its allies (militarily, politically, financially and informatively); whereas, the Arab countries do not provide the Palestinians with even the basic means of confrontation.
Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed that attributing the Islamic and Arab refrain from supporting the Palestinians to the current disturbances in several countries is untrue because the 1.4-billion Umma did not show an effective support to the Lebanese and the Palestinian resistance factions during the Israeli wars and invasions in 1982, 1996, 2006 and 2008.
Hezbollah Secretary General considered that some Muslims and
Arabs, including a segment of the Lebanese people, have become convinced that ‘Israel’ is not the Umma’s enemy and got involved in internal conflicts, adding that those also do not believe that the Israelis pose a peril and a threat against the entire region.
Sayyed Nasrallah further deemed that a number of Arab countries have provided the terrorists in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya with huge funds and abundant weaponry, but they have not supported the Palestinians against the Israelis.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that Instead of provoking hostility against the Israelis, some Arab governments have instigated feud against the Palestinians and that they even gloat over their losses.
Hezbollah SG warned that the sedition scheme attempts to stir the struggles among the Sunnites and the Shiites and push the Christians to ally with ‘Israel’ in face of the takfiri plot.
Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed that the current Palestinian Intifada can at least protect al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of the Islamic and the Christian sanctities, adding that the Muslims and the Christians must reject the seditions and unite to confront the Israeli dangers and threats.
“We trust Holy God and the mujahidin and we are sure that the firm divine promise will lead us to the major victory,” Sayyed Nasrallah finally emphasized.
