Islamic Jihad Calls on Palestinian Worshippers to Defend Al-Aqsa Mosque against Zionist Assaults on Sanctities

Islamic Jihad movement

January 14, 2019

The Palestinian resistance movement of Islamic Jihad considered that the Zionist attacks on the worshipers and guards at Al-Aqsa Mosque comes in the context of the enemy’s planned assaults on the sanctities, accusing Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu of utilizing those hostile actions for electoral purposes.

Islamic Jihad called on the Palestinians to intensify their presence at the squares of Al-Aqsa Mosque, considering that the entire Umma is concerned with defending the holy site.

Zionist Agriculture Minister, Uri Ariel, accompanied by Israeli Special Police and dozens of settlers, stormed the Al Aqsa Mosque on Monday morning.

The Israeli forces attacked the worshippers, besieging them inside the Mosque.

The Elusive Middle East Peace

December 18, 2018

by Ghassan Kadi for The Saker Blog

Subtle news sources coming on the grapevine allude to impending Middle East fresh peace talks. The end of the “War on Syria” will bring serious and realistic opportunities for Russian-sponsored peace talks, and there are direct and indirect hints and leaks made by certain officials here and there, hints and leaks which will become overt and obvious in the near future, culminating into news to the effect that new peace talks will resume.

The Arab/Israeli conflict seems intractable, and every time peace talks loom, we need to remember to examine the root of the problem and consider ways in which the deadlock can be surmounted.

Four decades after Kissinger pushed the USSR out of its position in the Arab/Israeli negotiation talks and made it law for America to defend Israel, the one-sided unparalleled superiority that America provided Israel with was not “good enough” to give Israel the “safe haven” that Zionism promised Jewish migrants with after the horrors of the Holocaust. If anything, the more aggression the state of Israel displayed and the more audacious America was in providing it with impunity, the more determined Palestinians became; and Hamas was the direct outcome of the joint Israeli/American bullying and the Palestinian despair that followed the supposed peace talks of the Oslo Agreement.

In retrospect, Kissinger, the man who gave “shuttle diplomacy” its name, has inadvertently created a deadlocked situation, and in doing so, America has done itself a huge disfavour in the unconditional support it provided Israel with over all those years and has turned itself into a de-facto pariah arbitrator; a mediator that axis-of-resistance Arabs, and all Palestinians in particular, do not trust. In doing so, it kicked itself out of the scene, paving the way for Russia to fill the void it left behind.

On the other hand, Russia is on talking terms with all parties in the Middle East and President Putin personally has good and strong relationships with Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and of course Syria. Furthermore, Putin had all the reasons to sever ties with Erdogan, however the master of pragmatism managed to find a way to mend the rift without losing face, and even though Erdogan has not yet shown any credibility, Putin sees Turkey as a potential key player in the peace process in Syria.

Notwithstanding all of the above, all the American Russophobic rhetoric amounts to nothing, because America and Russia will always be on talking terms.

Briefly put, no entity other than Russia is potentially able to bring all Middle Eastern parties to the negotiation table, and the “hints” speak of such eventuality, come the end of the War on Syria; and this is what Putin wants.

In the meantime, relevant parties will have to accept to come to the negotiation table, and be prepared to negotiate.

It was easy back in 1948 for the Arabs to carry the “push them back” slogan; referring to sending Jewish migrants back to where they came from. More than seven decades after the establishment of Israel, if the Palestinian cause were to maintain the moral upper ground, this “ambition” can no longer apply to second and third generation Jews who were born in the land their forefathers migrated to; albeit those forefathers migrated and settled illegally. By the same token, and most importantly, Palestinians cannot be expected to take the moral upper ground alone without a reciprocal agreement that grants them the long-awaited justice; including the right of return.

And as negotiations mean to give and take, it is interesting to note that the English term is said in this sequence; give and take, rather than take and give, because if a negotiator does not begin with giving, he will not be able to take.

This will be the sticking point because religious hardliners on both Arab and Israeli sides have perfected the art of each claiming to be the rightful and exclusive owner of the Holy Land. As a matter of fact, it was only when the religious spin replaced the national argument of the Arab struggle that a secular fight was taken to theocratic camp and Zionism was, to some degree, able to use history to support its argument. That said, even though Jewish presence in Palestine indeed predates Islam, this does not justify the displacement of Palestinian Arabs, both Muslims and Christians. For Palestinians therefore to win both the humane and religious arguments, the endorsement of an Arab-Palestinian-Levantine identity and carrying its banner is one that cannot be refuted; because it is an all-inclusive definition; including Jews, and one that is moral and timeless.

But let us briefly examine the fundamentalist counter Muslim claim of the ownership of Palestine from a realistic vantage point. Are Muslims the rightful and exclusive owners of Palestine?

Back in 2011, I wrote an article titled “Palestine is not for Muslims”. I had it edited when the UN was voting for a Palestinian state, and now it is time to revise it.

The Quran is a Holy Book and not a real estate title deed. There is no mention of any land rights in the Quran. The city of Jerusalem (Al-Quds in Arabic) is not even mentioned in the Quran. There is however a mention of “Al-Masjed Al-Aksa” which Muslims believe to be in Jerusalem/Al-Quds. This does not make Al-Quds inherently a Muslim city, and even if it did, there is absolutely no reference in the Quran to any Muslim exclusivity.

Speaking of claims of exclusive ownership of Jerusalem, we cannot and should not ignore a time in history during which the Catholic Church was so desirous to take the city from the “infidels”. The “infidels” back then were the Muslims, not the Christians as per the current ISIS terminology; but the congruency in the ideologies behind the definitions is clear.

Speaking of ISIS, when Zionism established the state of Israel, the Zionist aggression was (and continues to be) practised equally against both Arab Muslims and Christians. The anti-Zionist resistance was the Arab Resistance, and it was comprised of both Christians and Muslims. When Fateh was established, it was then meant to be an armed struggle for the liberation of Palestine. George Habash, the founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) was a Christian.

Back then, the state of Israel was the ideological ISIS equivalent of the time, and the Palestinian resistance was a secular force trying to redeem freedom and secularism. In reality, the ISIS-like stance of Israel did not change at all.

To this effect, ISIS-minded Zionists regarded all Arabs as equally unequal to them, and when they were pillaging the Church of Nativity two decades ago, the West stood back and watched. The world seems to be totally at ease that the state of Israel continues to act as an ISIS; only of different denomination.

As Israel treated both Christian and Muslim Palestinians as second grade citizens, it was only natural for the anti-Israeli resistance to be nationally-based and driven. The slogan of those days was “Al-Quds lil Arab” ie Al-Quds belongs to Arabs. There was even a song with that title. The term Arabs meant back then referred to the inhabitants of the land; ie Muslims, Christians, as well as Jews who refute Zionism.

Suddenly, sometime in the 1980’s, a huge turn of events took place in Lebanon and Palestine almost at the same time.

The 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon was soon followed by a resistance then named the “Lebanese Resistance”. Soon after Hezbollah rose to prominence the name changed to “Islamic Resistance”. In Palestine, Hamas rebunked the anti-Israeli resistance and turned into an Islamic resistance as well. All of a sudden, the struggle against Zionism changed course from a national secular Arab struggle into a religious one.

The biggest losers here are the Palestinian Christians as they are well and truly excluded by both Zionists and fundamentalist Muslims.

It is most ironic that Western Christian Zionists find it so easy to sympathize with Zionism, and at the same time manage to ignore the plight of Palestinian Christians. How ironic! The truth about Christian Zionists is that they are neither Christians nor Jews; they are Zionists, period.

When Islamists make claims of ownership of Palestine in general and of Al-Quds/Jerusalem to be specific, they would be using the same false argument of Zionists; only from their own equally unfounded perspective. Two wrongs do not make it right.

Fair and open-minded Palestinians, especially non-fundamentalist Muslims, need to realise that they have to make loud and clear statements to their policy makers that they refuse fanaticism and bigotry irrespective who the culprit is.

If we refute the ISIS mind, we must refute it in all of its forms, denominations and agendas. Justice cannot be selective any more than one wrong can be undone by another wrong.

Palestine is not for Muslims, nor is it for Jews or Christians; not exclusively. It is for all of them combined, but again not exclusively. Palestine is for its people, and they don’t have to belong to any of the Abrahamic religions. That land is for its people without any favouritism and exclusion. And, if any hard-line, orthodox, fanatic, violent, militant Zionist settlers don’t accept this, justice stipulates it is they who should be made to leave.

So back to President Putin and his hush-hush peace plan. Adversity often brings opportunities, and Putin is quite aware of the historical and geopolitical significance of the present moment.

Russia will most probably be trying to broker a two-state solution that is acceptable by all parties concerned. Realistically however, there is no lasting resolution that can be based on anything other than a one-state resolution in which all citizens have equal rights; just like any other self-respecting nation state. Any resolution short of this outcome is tantamount to endorsing an apartheid-type system.

This brings us back to the give-and-take concept for conflict resolution. Normally, in a negotiation situation, giving is seen to be for losers and taking is for winners, but reality can dictate pragmatic changes in direction; and it has, at least on the Palestinian side.

From the early days during which Palestinians expressed anger and frustration saying they wanted to push back Jewish migrants into the sea and restore the homeland from “water to water” (ie from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River), the Palestinian leadership had to learn from the humiliation of many defeats, numerous let downs from Arab states, the UN and the whole world, to accept to settle for the West Bank and Gaza in lieu of putting an end to armed resistance and acknowledging the state of Israel.

This Palestinian “acceptance” did not come easy and was not endorsed by all Palestinians, but when the PLO went to Oslo with this objective in mind with the expectation of a reciprocal “acceptance” from Israel, the final outcome was more than disappointing.

Israel reached its military height specifically on the 9th of June 1967; the day when Egyptian President Nasser made his resignation speech. At that point in time, Arabs were at their nadir, and with the most humiliating defeat they have endured in history, all they felt they could seek was a withdrawal of Israel to the pre-1967 war borders.

Slowly and gradually, Arabs had to go through the phase of denial of defeat that they were not prepared to accept.

They first demanded the UN for a resolution and managed to gain support for UNSC Resolution 224 which called for the unconditional Israeli withdrawal of Israel from the “occupied territory”. In this, Arab states accepted that the new definition of “occupied territory” meant what Israel managed to occupy during the Six-Day-War of 1967. This was a huge shift, because the original Arab definition of “occupied territory” meant all of Israel. But the Arab forced resignation to the status quo was not enough to persuade Israel into negotiating a land-for-peace deal. Israel was not prepared to give in order to take (peace).

The October 1973 War, aka Yom Kippur War, was a turning point in history. Even though the military gains of Egypt and Syria were not huge, they were big enough to change the course of events; at least psychologically. However, when Egyptian President Sadat signed a unilateral peace agreement with Israel, the Arab World fell into disarray.

In simple and short terms, Arab expectations were dwindling while the Israeli ones were escalating; despite the rise of the new form of anti-Israeli resistance spearheaded by Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Palestine’s Hamas.

In simple and short terms again, though Israel’s refusal to relent has resulted in creating an Arab camp that is prepared to accept its agenda, it also created another camp that has vowed to fiercely resist any settlement that does not provide justice to the Palestinian people, and this latter group has become battle-hardened and prepared to fight and inflict serious damage to Israel’s might.

The most prominent player here is the Hezbollah military factor that rained rockets on Israel during the July 2006 war, even hitting a frigate, and sees itself more capable in any future escalation. Hezbollah is deeply embedded in the Lebanese society and cannot be uprooted. It sees time to be on its side and it is moving from strength to strength.

The axis-of-resistance is living in the euphoria of the outcome of the July 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah, the many setbacks of Israel in Gaza and the victory of Syria against all odds.

The resistance side is waiting and poised for further confrontations. Hezbollah therefore will not easily accept any resolution that does not provide it with some real and tangible victory.

Meanwhile, Israel is tooth and nail still hanging on to the euphoria of the outcome of the 1967 Six-Day War. The Israeli side is not yet prepared to accept that time is not on its side. In a nutshell, Israel is not yet prepared to give so it can take (peace).

This will be Russia’s main obstacle in bringing all parties to negotiations on pragmatic grounds. Short of being able to convince Israel to give, Russia may find that the only way for this paradigm shift to happen in the Israeli psyche is through war; and in this case by a resounding Israeli defeat. This is perhaps why Russia is bolstering Syrian defences and specifically air defences. After all, if Israel loses its superiority in the air, and if its ground defences are unable to stop Hezbollah’s rockets, or at least some of them, then the new balance of power will no longer be on Israel’s side.

Now, will Netanyahu’s government, or any other future Israeli government for that matter, be prepared to take the risk of a new military confrontation with the prior knowledge that it has lost its upper hand in the fight? Will Israel accept to sacrifice its citizens in the hope that a new battle will restore its military superiority against all odds? To ask the question in a different way, what punishment does Israel need in order to be brought down to the negotiating table, the agenda of which is to find a way to establish a two-state solution let alone a one-state solution? But once again, Israel is not yet ready to give and take. It won’t return the Golan for any political gain, and it won’t even agree to lift the siege on Gaza.

At this stage, the best outcome to expect from Russian-mediated peace talks, with or without a war, if one is reached at all, is perhaps a two-state solution. This will be a huge step in the right direction, but in reality, such a resolution is nothing more than a disengagement. That said, Sharon’s wall has made it virtually impossible to draw practical border lines for a viable Palestinian state to exist, and thus created a nightmare for any future serious two-state-based peace talks. Whilst walls can be reconfigured, or even better torn down, in the long run, an apartheid two-state solution will always be morally wrong, and at best, should be regarded as an interim step towards establishing one state that ensures equal rights to all of its citizens.

Bahraini FM Defends Australia’s Decision on Al-Quds, Slams AL Statement

December 16, 2018

Bahrain FM Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed al-Khalifa

The foreign minister of Bahrain has defended Australia’s formal recognition of the so-called “West Al-Quds” (Jerusalem) as Israeli capital, saying the move would not affect a future Palestinian state with “East Al-Quds” as its capital.

Australia’s government announced the decision on Saturday, reversing decades of Middle East policy, but said it would not immediately move its embassy there.

The United States in May opened its embassy in Al-Quds.

The Arab League (AL) had issued a statement criticizing the Australian decision as “blatantly biased towards the positions and policies of the Israeli occupation”.

But Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa described the statement as “mere rhetoric and irresponsible”.

“Australia’s stance does not impact the legitimate Palestinian demands, first among them being East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine, and it does not contradict the Arab Peace Initiative,” he tweeted on Saturday.

السلطة تقمع مناصري «حماس»… ويوم غضب في الضفة



السلطة تقمع مناصري «حماس»... ويوم غضب في الضفةقوبل قمع السلطة لمظاهرات «حماس» باستنكار فصائلي وشعبي واسع (أ ف ب )

ينما كانت الضفة المحتلة تشهد في مناطقها كافة مسيرات داعمة للمقاومة من جهة، واشتباكات مع قوات العدو الإسرائيلي التي تواصل عمليتها العسكرية في رام الله من جهة أخرى، أقدمت الأجهزة الأمنية التابعة للسلطة الفلسطينية على فضّ مسيرتَيْن دعت إليهما «حركة المقاومة الإسلامية» (حماس) بالقوة، في مدينتي نابلس (شمال) والخليل (جنوب). وسجل حقوقيون وصحافيون اعتداء عناصر من الأجهزة الأمنية بالعصي على المشاركين في المسيرتَيْن، كما اعتقلوا عدداً منهم، وأطلقوا النار صوب الشاب هشام بشكار، وهو شقيق الأسير فوزي الذي اعتقله العدو خلال اغتيال الشهيد أشرف نعالوة.

هذا المشهد قوبلباستنكار فصائلي وشعبي كبير، خصوصاً أنه يأتي في وقت اختفى الأمن الفلسطيني من رام الله بصورة شبه كاملة. وقال عضو المكتب السياسي لحركة «الجهاد الإسلامي» نافذ عزام، في تصريح تلفزيوني أمس، إن ما أقدمت عليه أجهزة السلطة «مدعاة للخجل، ولا يجوز أن يحدث هذا المشهد»، مضيفاً: «شعبنا ينتظر أن تدافع أجهزتها الأمنية عنه وتتصدى لقوات الاحتلال لا أن تقمع التظاهرات السلمية».

وجراء الاشتباكات مع العدو، استشهد شاب وأصيب آخرون جراء استعمال قوات العدو الرصاص الحي بكثرة. وأعلنت وزارة الصحة استشهاد محمود يوسف نخلة (18 عاماً) بعد وصوله بحالة حرجة مُصاباً بالرصاص الحي في البطن. ونخلة من مخيم الجلزون شمال رام الله (وسط)، وأصيب خلال مواجهات في محيط مستوطنة «بيت إيل» القريبة من المخيم. وبينما حاول جنود الاحتلال اعتقال الشاب بعد إصابته بجروح حرجة، تمكّنت طواقم الإسعاف الفلسطينية من تخليصه من أيدي الجنود.

أما في طولكرم، حيث منزل عائلة الشهيد نعالوة، فشهدت ضاحية شويكة مواجهات مع قوات الاحتلال لمنعها من الوصول إلى البيت. كذلك، اندلعت مواجهات في خمس نقاط تماس في نابلس حيث وقعت 56 إصابة، وكذلك في الخليل (منطقة باب الزاوية).

استشهد شاب في رام الله فيما أصيب جندي إسرائيلي بجروح خطيرة

في المقابل، أصيب جندي إسرائيلي بجروح خطيرة صباحاً جراء إصابته بحجر في رأسه داخل مستوطنة «بيت إيل». وذكر موقع «يديعوت أحرونوت» العبري أن شاباً فلسطينياً تمكن من التسلل إلى المستوطنة مسلحاً بحجر، واقترب من برج مراقبة مسقطاً منه جندياً إسرائيلياً ثم ضربه في رأسه مباشرة، قبل أن ينسحب من المكان.

من جهة ثانية، وعلى رغم حالة الهدوء العامة في قطاع غزة خصوصاً على الحدود، قرر الفلسطينيون التظاهر مجدداً مساندة للضفة. وقالت وزارة الصحة إن 75 مواطناً أصيبوا في الجمعة الـ38 لـ«مسيرات العودة وكسر الحصار» شرق محافظات القطاع. وأوضحت الوزارة أن من بين المصابين سبعة مسعفين وصحافيين. وجددت «الهيئة الوطنية لمسيرات العودة وكسر الحصار» دعوتها للمشاركة في جمعة «الوفاء لأبطال المقاومة في الضفة» الأسبوع المقبل.
وبالتزامن، تستعد «حماس» لإحياء ذكرى انطلاقتها الثلاثين غداً الأحد في غزة، بعنوان «مقاومة تنتصر وحصار ينكسر»، فيما أفادت مصادر إعلامية بتقدم أكثر من 700 صحافي فلسطيني وأجنبي، و117 وسيلة إعلام، طلبات لتغطية مهرجان الانطلاقة الذي سيقام في ساحة الكتيبة وسط مدينة غزة.

إلى ذلك، رفضت محكمة أوروبية أمس طعناً تقدمت به «حماس» لتصنيف الاتحاد الأوروبي لها

«منظمة إرهابية». وقالت ثاني أعلى محكمة أوروبية ومقرها لوكسمبورغ، إنها ترفض الطعن بخصوص قرارات المجلس (الأوروبي) بين عامي 2010 و2014 و(كذلك) في 2017، إذ سبق أن ألغت «محكمة العدل» الأوروبية، في تموز/ يوليو 2017، قراراً سابقاً للمحكمة العامة يقضي بإزالة الحركة من قائمة الكيانات الإرهابية.

استنكار فلسطيني لقمع السلطة الفلسطينية تظاهرات شعبية في مدينتي الخليل ونابلس

الجبهة الشعبية لتحرير فلسطين تستنكر اعتداء الأجهزة الأمنية الفلسطينية على مسيرة شعبية في نابلس والخليل، ومسؤول الإعلام في حركة الجهاد الاسلامي داوود شهاب يقول للميادين إن قمع السلطة للتظاهرات الشعبية بـ “العمل مشين، وفصائل منظمة التحرير الفلسطينية تبرر بالقول إن الدعوة في محافظة نابلس للتظاهر كانت على أساس رفع العلم الفلسطيني فقط.

وأكّدت “الجبهة أنه بدلاً من أن تصوّب السلطة أسلحتها وتوجه أفراد أجهزتها الأمنية في الدفاع عن الشعب الفلسطيني والتصدي لاستباحة الاحتلال مدن وقرى الضفة، تنهال بالضرب على النساء والشبان والأطفال”.

ودعت الجبهة إلى “التحلل الكامل من نهج التسوية واتفاقية أوسلو المدمرة والتزاماتها الأمنية وفي مقدمتها التنسيق الأمني”.

المقاومة: جمر الضفة تحت الرماد سيحرق المحتل

ارتقاء ثلاثة شهداء في الضفة يفتح صفحة جديدة مع العدو بالدم والنار والبارود

ديسمبر 14, 2018

هدّدت كتائب القسام الجناح العسكري لحركة حماس بالمزيد من المفاجات ضد جيش الاحتلال في الضفة الغربية.

وقالت في بيان مقتضب، «لا يزال في جعبتنا الكثير مما يسوء العدو ويربك كل حساباته»، مضيفة: «جمر الضفة تحت الرماد سيحرق المحتل ويذيقه بأس رجالها من حيث لا يتوقع».

وتبنت كتائب القسام رسمياً الشهيدين صالح عمر البرغوثي وأشرف نعالوة منفذي عمليتي عوفرا وبركان في الضفة الغربية المحتلة.

وقالت الكتائب في بيان: «إن كتائب الشهيد عز الدين القسام تزفّ بكل الفخر والاعتزاز إلى العلا شهيديها المجاهدين: صالح عمر البرغوثي سليل عائلة البرغوثي المجاهدة، وبطل عملية عوفرا التي أوقعت 11 إصابةً في صفوف المحتلين، وأشرف وليد نعالوة بطل عملية بركان التي قتل فيها صهيونيان وأصيب آخر بجراحٍ والذي دوّخ قوات الاحتلال وأجهزتها الأمنية على مدار شهرين من المطاردة، وقد جرّع أبطالنا الاحتلال الويلات بتنفيذ عملياتهم الموجعة رداً على الاعتداءات اليومية من قوات الاحتلال وقطعان المغتصبين الذين يستبيحون الضفة الغربية المحتلة ويعيثون فيها فساداً.

وأكدت الكتائب أن المقاومة ستظل حاضرةً على امتداد خريطة الوطن، ولا يزال في جعبتها الكثير مما يسوء الاحتلال ويربك كل حساباته.

ودعت القسام الاحتلال ألا يحلم بالأمن والأمان والاستقرار في الضفة مضيفاً: «فجمر الضفة تحت الرماد سيحرق المحتل ويذيقه بأس رجالها الأحرار من حيث لا يحتسب العدو ولا يتوقع».

وقالت إن كل محاولات وأد المقاومة وكسر سلاحها في الضفة ستبوء بالفشل، وستندثر كما كل المحاولات.

وأضاف أن دماء الشهداء الأبطال ستظل لعنة تطارد المحتل، ونورًا يمتد نحو القدس والمسجد الأقصى.

وكان قد قتل 3 جنود صهاينة وأصيب رابع بجراح بالغة الخطورة في عملية إطلاق بطولية نفّذها مقاوم فلسطيني الى الشرق من مدينة رام الله. وفرضت قوات الاحتلال حصاراً على المدينة وشنت حملة مداهمات واعتقالات في صفوف المواطنين.

واغتالت قوات الاحتلال، المقاوم أشرف نعالوة منفذ عملية «بركان»، والمقاوم صالح البرغوثي منفذ عملية «عوفرا»، خلال اشتباكين مسلحين وقعا مساء أول أمس وفجر أمس في كل من رام الله ونابلس بالضفة الغربية المحتلة. فيما قضى شهيد ثالث برصاص الاحتلال في القدس بزعم تنفيذه عملية طعن.

وقال متحدث باسم جيش الاحتلال، إنه «بعد مطاردة وجهود ميدانية واستخبارية تمكنت قواتنا من كشف منفذي عمليتي بركان وعوفرا».

وفي أول تعليق لها، قالت حركة حماس، على لسان عضو مكتبها السياسي، حسام بدران: «في ذكرى انطلاقتها، تقدّم حماس شهيدين من خيرة أبنائها المقاومين في الضفة صالح البرغوثي، وأشرف نعالوة، إضافة إلى اعتقال العشرات من قياداتها وكوادرها مؤخراً».

وأوضح بدران في تصريح مقتضب، أن «كل هذا يؤكد أن جذوة المقاومة في الضفة لم ولن تنطفئ حتى يندحر الاحتلال عن أرضنا».

Wake Up Arabs!

Hussein Samawarchi

The Lebanese Resistance, with its pivotal role in representing domestic and Arab nationalism, faces two kinds of injustice. The first originates from the “Israeli” war machine and the second from the treason of regional dictators.

In a nutshell, the “Israelis” invade, steal, kill, destroy, and commit every imaginable crime against the Lebanese people. Hezbollah fights back with unprecedented ingenuity and does not just expel them from Lebanon, they also make the Zionists think twice before attempting any more acts of war. While the men of Hezbollah are doing all this, daggers are unsheathed only to try and stab them in the back.

The strength of the “Israeli” enemy has proved to be overrated. In every confrontation since after the invasion of 1982, Zionist soldiers ran from the battlefield before the first rifle magazine had been emptied; it is because they have no conviction is what they are doing. The majority know that they don’t really belong to what is falsely said to be theirs – deep down within, they realize that they should return to their countries of origin. At the end of the day, being given a free house and financial benefits may not be worth dying for.

So, the injustice originating from the Zionists can be handled with simple terms and precise rules of engagement. As [His Eminence] Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has so clearly stated, every aggression will be met with defensive measures of equal magnitude. The Secretary-General’s words do not constitute mere speculative rhetoric, they are what brought victory to Arab Nationalism in 2006 and what have kept the warmongering monster to the south of the border at bay since then. That is because they are based on reality and not propaganda.

The other injustice, the one suffered from those considered to be cousins and brothers, is the one that causes slight confusion.

Indeed, there is something very wrong with the state of affairs governing the whole issue of the theft of Palestine and defending the Arab nation these days. Perhaps the usage of the term “these days” is not precise; maybe it has been like this for a long time but people have begun to see the conspiracy just now.

Instead of coming to the aid of Lebanon when the Zionists breached its southern border and occupied it for nearly two decades, the leaders of the major Arab countries turned their backs. Instead of congratulating Lebanon for doing what none of them could, namely defeating the “Israeli” war legend, they utilized their media against its Resistance. And, instead of at the very least, staying neutral, they sided by “Israel.”

It is mind-blowing to the average Arabs. Settlers from Europe took Palestine and hijacked al-Quds, Yet, their regimes demonize the only remaining governments that still fight for the Holy Land. Then again, the average Arabs live under political circumstances that deny them the truth. God forbid they might seek this truth; the regime will ensure they never attempt to do so again. Notorious secret police prisons like Ulaysha are only too happy to accommodate anyone who dares ask obvious objective questions like “What wrong has Hezbollah done?”

Should the torture equipment in prisons like Ulaysha prove to be insufficient, prisoners can always be shipped to nearby larger facilities like Al-Hayer prison.

As stated before, facing the Zionist with his technologically superior war machine has proved to be a very possible option. Years of resistance taught people lessons in doing it. The basic ingredients revolve around the notion of unconditional love for God, country, and family. These are the three concepts that Zionists do not fathom and when you do not understand something, you cannot create a weapon to counter it.

Regarding the continuous antagonization by regimes who have abandoned their Arab identity, the unwavering belief in Prophet Mohamed and the divine message he delivered to humanity dictates that patience is to be adopted. There comes a time when affairs need to be set straight but only after hope has vanished completely. Those being unfairly attacked on daily basis still cling to that hope. Indications of following the essence of Islam show in Iran’s recent call for the Saudis to join the anti-colonial axis. His Eminence the Secretary-General of Hezbollah reached out to the Saudis as well.

Daily slandering of Hezbollah and other members of the coalition championing the Arab cause in general and the Palestinian one in particular is now the least of the wrongs that these regimes are doing. Supporting the occupiers of the Holy land has become a trend and so has funding tens of thousands of terrorist mercenaries who are set on annihilating Islam and Christianity in the name of Wahhabism.

In staying true to the Islamic tradition in its pure form as conveyed by Prophet Mohamed, his descendant the Secretary-General reminds the Resistance public to remain accepting of other faiths and sects and to display tolerance towards different political beliefs. The great hope is that some of those boasting the contradictory beliefs would stop confusing tolerance with weakness.

The Lebanese people know all too well that they managed to turn around a military equation imposed by the most experienced imperialist superpowers. They know that they defeated one of the highest-ranking military forces in the world. Still, they engulf their victories with humbleness. In this humbleness that was taught by God and the prophet, they have dedicated their victories to their Arab brothers. The reciprocation to the Lebanese gesture by the regimes of their brothers is an injustice.

It must not be forgotten that God chose to place the Holy Kaabah and Masjid Al Aqsa in the indigenous land of the Arabs. Neither the infamous Lord Rothschild nor Trump get to change God’s will. Anyone in line with this statement would know that “Israel” represents an occupying entity which must be expelled and siding with it means attempting to change God’s designs.

Those Arab leaders who have put all their eggs in the U.S foreign policy and Zionist basket need to know that they are placing themselves in a course set towards a dark end. They are like a woman marrying a womanizer who will only love her as long as her external appearance is still young and beautiful. See, plainly speaking, the U.S has two interests in our land, two assets.

The first (being Middle Eastern black gold) is about to become an obsolete necessity with the development of alternative energy sources becoming more serious now than ever. That, and the American shale oil prospect which is about to be cheaper to extract when compared to the prices of Arab petroleum and the complicated politics that come with it. The Americans have major reserves of shale oil.

Having realized that the matrimony with America will not last much longer because of diminishing oil interests, the desperate part of the Arab leaders who can’t imagine living without its protection are racing to bring their romance with “Israel” to the open. They want to prove that they are important to America’s second regional asset’s wellbeing. This comes at the expense of the Palestinian people’s rights, their own people’s pride, the Arab identity, and self-respect.

I wonder if they know how cruel the “Israeli” master is. Once America hands over the region to this cancerous entity created by the British and sustained by them, there will be no more kings. Military governors will be stationed with the “Star of David” replacing every crescent and cross. Ironically, the Ottoman rule would be remembered as “good days.”

Wake up Arabs. Giving away Palestine today means giving away your crowns tomorrow.

Hero of Ofra Op Martyred, “Israel” Says

Local Editor

In the wake of the latest heroic Ofra operation against Zionist settlers, the “Israeli” occupation army stormed the house of Martyr Salih al-Barghouthi, north of Ramallah.

The “Israeli” occupation army claimed that al-Barghouthi [29 years] was martyred after attempting to escape the shooting and a clash with the Zionist soldiers, however witnesses confirmed that the hero was detained after opening fire on his car, and that he was seen stepping out of the car where no blood stains were detected.

According to the “Israeli” army statement, al-Barghouthi “is a member of the cell that carried out the Ofra operation,” adding that they detained other members.

The man was announced by Hamas resistance movement as the one who carried out the operation outside the illegal Ofra settlement earlier this week.

“Hamas announces with great pride the death of its martyr Salih Omar Barghouthi, the perpetrator of the heroic Ofra operation,” Hamas wrote on its official Twitter account early Thursday morning.

Barghouthi is a resident of Kobar, a village near Ramallah.

For the past three days, soldiers have been carrying out intensive searches for suspects involved in the operation.

Late Wednesday, Zionist troops raided a home in Kobar belonging to Barghouthi’s family and surrounded a building in Ramallah.
