Sayyed Nasrallah: Al-Quds Is Too Sacred to Be Liberated by Traitors, Hypocrites! (To be updated)

Sayyed Nasrallah: Al-Quds Is Too Sacred to Be Liberated by Traitors, Hypocrites!

June 23, 2017 Marwa Haidar

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah lashed out at Saudi Arabia over its relation with the Zionist entity and its stance towards Palestine, stressing that “Al-Quds is too sacred to be liberated by traitors and hypocrites.”

On the occasion of Al-Quds International Day, Sayyed Nasrallah was recalling the words of the spiritual leader of resistance in Lebanon, the disappeared Imam Moussa Sadr who had said that “the honor of Al-Quds disdains any liberation unless it is at the hands of true believers.”

During a ceremony held by Hezbollah on this occasion, which falls on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, Sayyed Nasrallah threatened that in case of any Israeli war on Lebanon or Syria, “our space will be open to hundreds of thousands of fighters from across the Arab and Muslim countries.

Sayyed Nasrallah warned that the aim of unrest taking place in the region is to divert attention from the Palestinian cause. However, the resistance leader stressed that such goal won’t be reached, noting that the axis of resistance is getting stronger nowadays.

“We are heading for the imminent victory thanks to our martyrs’ blood and steadfastness f our people,” his eminence addressed crowds at Sayyed Shuhada Complex, in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh), via a video link.

Al-Quds Day

Talking about the occasion itself, Sayyed Nasrallah said that following victory of Islamic revolution in Iran, late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam (Rouhullah Mousavi) Khomeini assigned the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as Quds International Day.

In this context, the resistance leader noted that the entire humanity bears responsibility of standing by the Palestinian cause and not only Muslims.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that Al-Quds day coincides this year with the 50th anniversary of occupation of Al-Quds by Zionists.

Sayyed Nasrallah said that the West and especially the United States have exploited the unrest which took place in the recent years in a bid to divert the attention of the people of the Muslim nation from the Palestinian cause. However, he noted that the Arab spring which has ended up being unrest was first a result of popular movements.

“We believe that the Arab spring was first a result of popular movements across many Arab countries; however the West, especially US managed to contain these movements in a bid to wipe out the Palestinian cause.”

“One of the major aims of unrest and wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya is to pave the way for a settlement in favor of the Zionist enemy.”

Challenges

Sayyed Nasrallah saluted the Palestinian people who are now subjected to all means of Israeli oppression including blockade, electricity shortage, settlements and Judaization plots, and razing homes, in a bid to force them to accept the Israeli conditions of the so-called settlement.

Iran as a major supporter of Palestine and resistance movements in the region is being slapped by economic sanction and politically pressured, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

There are conspiracies to isolate Iran and to change it to an enemy for countries in the region instead of “Israel”, Hezbollah S.G. said, noting that there has been plots to move the battle against Takfiris to Iran.

Reminding of a threat made by Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammad Bin Salman to move the battle to Iran, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the “Saudi regime is weaker than being able to launch a war on Iran.”

The Resistance Leader meanwhile, said that Syria is “a central member of the axis of resistance and a major supporter of resistance movements in the region.”

“For that it was targeted by schemes to destroy its army and topple its government to replace it with another regimes that serve the interests of the US and Zionist entity.”

On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the resistance movements have been also targeted by war threats, assassination attempts of its figures and accusations of terrorism in a bid to tarnish its image.

“An Iraq, after it demonstrated a clear policy that refuses to be part of the US-Israeli scheme to abandon Palestine, they sent ISIL in a bid to destroy this country,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

In this context, his eminence stressed that ISIL was made by US, funded by Saudi Arabia and its operations were facilitated by Turkey.

Talking about the war on Yemen, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the real reason of this war is a Saudi intention to control this Arab country. Hezbollah S.G. praised the Yemeni people for its legendry steadfastness against the Saudi-led aggression and hailed their firm stance towards Palestine.

“Despite all challenges of airstrikes, blockade, cholera, poverty and destruction, tens of thousands took to streets to voice solidarity with Palestine and Al-Quds.”

“Yemen proved that it will never be part of a scheme to sell Palestine, neither for a throne, nor for Trump and it is still fighting.”

Sayyed Nasrallah meanwhile, cited reports confirming that the Zionist warplanes are taking part in the aggression on Yemen.

Next War

As in his major speeches, Sayyed Nasrallah tacked the military status of the resistance against the Zionist enemy. His eminence quoted remarks by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman who said that the Zionist entity has not won a war since 1967.

“We have no intention to launch a war neither in the summer and nor in the winter, neither in the north and nor in the south,” Sayyed Nasrallah quoting the Israeli DM as saying, noting that such situation is thanks to victories achieved by the resistance against the Zionist entity.

His eminence though warned that in case of any war on Lebanon or Syria “our space will be open to hundreds of thousands of fighters who will join resistance ranks from across Arab and Muslim countries.”

“Palestine is in our conscience and the axis of resistance is getting stronger,” the resistance leader said, calling on Palestinians not to lose hope despite all difficulties.

Iranian protesters are marching on the streets of Tehran on Friday, June 23, on Al-Quds Day, showing solidarity with Palestine. Al-Quds day, which falls on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan, is an annual event firstly introduced in 1979 by late Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, as a day of protest against Zionism and Israel’s control of Jerusalem. Al-Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem, and thousands, including Iranian government officials, take place in the yearly rally.

 DAMASCUS, (ST)- Participants in the rally organized in Damascus marking International Quds Day affirmed the need to unify the nation’s efforts in the confrontation of the Israeli occupation and the United States, stressing that there is no alternative to liberating Palestine, restoring  the holy shrines and return of refugees to their homeland.

The rally began from the entrance of Souk Hamidiyeh and progressed towards the Umayyad Mosque.

In a statement, the participants said that commemorating Quds Day and participating effectively in this occasion aims at mobilizing the nation’s potentials to liberate al-Quds and protect  al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing that the Palestinian cause is the central Arab cause and Palestine is the compass of the nation and Quds is its eternal capital.

They warned of the settlement schemes being promoted in the region , because they aim at liquidating the Palestinian cause, fragment the countries supporting the Palestinian cause, finding a suitable environment to make the Zionist entity a friend and an ally to some Arab and Islamic states and creating sedition among the Arabs.

Millions of People Have Taken to Streets in Iran On Quds Day

In Tehran, millions of people have taken to the treets across Iran and other world countries to show their solidarity with the Palestinians and condemn Israel’s decades-long occupation and atrocities.

The rallies are held to mark Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, press TV reported.

In Tehran and other cities and towns, people from all walks of life gathered for the annual event which usually marks people chanting slogans against Israel and burning the occupying regime’s flags.

The occasion is a legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, followed by Muslims in other countries to support the Palestinian struggle against Israel.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani along with other senior Iranian officials took part in the Tehran rally.

Speaking on the sidelines of the event, Rouhani said “the message of Quds Day is that of hatred towards the occupying and usurping regime as well as support for the oppressed nation” of Palestine.

He underlined the importance of this year’s Quds Day “given the presence of terrorists in the region, who are backed by Israel,” adding people are determined to cleanse the region of Tel Aviv-backed terrorists.

Rouhani said the high turnout in the demonstrations also serves as a response to the United States, which has recently been seeking to pile pressure on Iran by tightening its sanctions.

Millions of Muslims are taking to the streets across the world countries Friday to show their solidarity with the Palestinians and condemn the Zionist decades-long occupation and atrocities.

 

World Muslims Mark Quds Day with Massive Rallies

The rallies are held to mark International al-Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

In the Iranian capital city, Tehran, and other cities and towns, people from all walks of life are gathering for the annual event which usually marks chanting slogans against ‘Israel’ and burning its flags.

In the early hours of Friday, Bahraini people held anti-‘Israel’ rallies in different areas to commemorate the occasion.

The occasion is a legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, followed by Muslims in other counries to support the Palestinian struggle against ‘Israel.’

On Wednesday, Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei emphasized the importance of al-Quds Day.

“It is not just that we are defending an oppressed nation that has been driven out of its home. We are actually fighting against an oppressive and arrogant political system,” Imam Khamenei said.

Earlier this month, Palestinians marked the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Six-Day War, which saw ‘Israel’ occupy the West Bank, East al-Quds, the Gaza Strip and part of Syria’s Golan Heights.

In November that year, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 242, under which ‘Israel’ is required to withdraw from all territories seized in the war.

Tel Aviv withdrew from Gaza in 2005, but has been keeping the coastal enclave under a crippling siege and regular deadly offensives. The apartheid regime has also been expanding settlements across the West Bank and East al-Quds in breach of international laws.

The global protests this year coincide with stepped-up killing of Palestinians, their forced displacement and abusive detention by ‘Israel.’

The Real Conspiracy

By Jonathan Cook

June 15, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – Israeli and US officials are in the process of jointly pre-empting Donald Trump’s supposed “ultimate deal” to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They hope to demote the Palestinian issue to a footnote in international diplomacy.

The conspiracy – a real one – was much in evidence last week during a visit to the region by Nikki Haley, Washington’s envoy to the United Nations. Her escort was Danny Danon, her Israeli counterpart and a fervent opponent of Palestinian statehood.

Mr Danon makes Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu look moderate. He has backed Israel annexing the West Bank and ruling over Palestinians apatheid-style. Ms Haley appears unperturbed. During a meeting with Mr Netanyahu, she told him that the UN was “a bully to Israel”. She has warned the powerful Security Council to focus on Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hizbollah, instead of Israel.

To protect its tiny ally, Washington is threatening to cut billions in US funding to the world body, plunging it into crisis and jeopardising peacekeeping and humanitarian operations.

On the way to Israel, Ms Haley stopped at the UN’s Human Rights Council in Geneva, demanding it end its “pathological” opposition to Israel’s decades of occupation and human rights violations – or the US would pull out of the agency.

Washington has long pampered Israel, giving it millions of dollars each year to buy weapons to oppress Palestinians, and using its veto to block UN resolutions enforcing international law. Expert UN reports such as a recent one on Israel’s apartheid rule over Palestinians have been buried.

But worse is to come. Now the framework of international laws and institutions established after the Second World War is at risk of being dismembered.

That danger was highlighted on Sunday, when it emerged that Mr Netanyahu had urged Ms Haley to dismantle another UN agency much loathed by Israel. UNRWA cares for more than five million Palestinian refugees across the region.

Since the 1948 war, Israel has refused to allow these refugees to return to their lands, now in Israel, forcing them to live in miserable and overcrowded camps awaiting a peace deal that never arrives. These dispossessed Palestinians still depend on UNRWA for education, health care and social services.

UNRWA, Mr Netanyahu says, “perpetuates” rather than solves their problems. He prefers that they become the responsibility of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which looks after all other refugee populations.

His demand is a monumental U-turn, 70 years in the making. In fact, it was Israel that in 1948 insisted on a separate UN refugee agency for the Palestinians.

UNRWA was created to prevent the Palestinians falling under the charge of UNHCR’s forerunner, the International Refugee Organisation. Israel was afraid that the IRO, formed in the immediate wake of the Second World War, would give Palestinian refugees the same prominence as European Jews fleeing Nazi atrocities.

Israel did not want the two cases compared, especially as they were so intimately connected. It was the rise of Nazism that bolstered the Zionist case for a Jewish state in Palestine, and Jewish refugees who were settled on lands from which Palestinians had just been expelled by Israel.

Also, Israel was concerned that the IRO’s commitment to the principle of repatriation might force it to accept back the Palestinian refugees.

Israel’s hope then was precisely that UNRWA would not solve the Palestinian refugee problem; rather, it would resolve itself. The idea was encapsulated in a Zionist adage: “The old will die and the young forget.”

But millions of Palestinian descendants still clamour for a right of return. If they cannot forget, Mr Netanyahu prefers that the world forget them.

As bloody wars grip the Middle East, the best way to achieve that aim is to submerge the Palestinians among the world’s 65 million other refugees. Why worry about the Palestinian case when there are millions of Syrians newly displaced by war?

But UNRWA poses a challenge, because it is so deeply entrenched in the region and insists on a just solution for Palestinian refugees.

UNRWA’s huge staff includes 32,000 Palestinian administrators, teachers and doctors, many living in camps in the West Bank – Palestinian territory Mr Netanyahu and Mr Danon hunger for. The UN’s presence there is an impediment to annexation.

On Monday Mr Netanyahu announced his determination to block Europe from funding Israeli human rights organisations, the main watchdogs in the West Bank and a key data source for UN agencies. He now refuses to meet any world leader who talks to these rights groups.

With Mr Trump in the White House, a crisis-plagued Europe ever-more toothless and the Arab world in disarray, Mr Netanyahu wants to seize this chance to clear the UN out of the way too.

Global institutions such as the UN and the international law it upholds were created after the Second World War to protect the weakest and prevent a recurrence of the Holocaust’s horrors.

Today, Mr Netanyahu is prepared to risk it all, tearing down the post-war international order, if this act of colossal vandalism will finally rid him of the Palestinians.

General Strike in Palestine as Yarmulke-Wearing Trump Visits Western Wall

 

Trump, along with his wife and daughter, have visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem, with the president sporting a Jewish yarmulke–this as Palestinians prisoners are on day 36 of a hunger strike and as people throughout the occupied territories held a general strike in solidarity with the prisoners.

Mothers refusing food in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners. “I cannot eat while my sons are starving,”

In Manger Square in Bethlehem, protestors gathered to protest Trump, who is scheduled to make a stop there tomorrow.

“We came to tell you that the one who decides the fate of Palestinian people are the Palestinian refugee camps and not the Americans, the cause of the camps is the cause of all Palestinians,” said one protestor.  “The fate of Jerusalem can’t be decided by Trump, for Jerusalem is Arab; Jerusalem is Palestinian, and we decide its fate, not the Americans. The only ones who supported Palestinian people are the heroic prisoners, they are strugglers, fighting with only their bodies.”

Meanwhile, US and Israeli companies are reportedly working together to siphon off natural gas from Gaza’s territorial waters, while a 16-year-old Palestinian boy has been shot and killed after allegedly attempting to carrying out a stabbing of Israeli forces at a check point near Bethlehem. Additionally, some Some 20 other people were shot and injured as protestors attempted to march from the West Bank city of Ramallah to Israel’s Qalandiya checkpoint. Witnesses said Israeli soldiers fired at the demonstrators, using live ammunition as well as rubber coated steel bullets, from rooftops overlooking the main street .

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu greeted Trump and then told reporters that he and the president share a “commitment to peace.” Palestinians have called for a second “day of rage” to coincide with Trump’s visit to the West Bank on Tuesday.

So are these unruly Palestinians just illogical, irrational anti-Semites who simply hate Jews for no reason–or are their protests, hunger strikes, and days of rage motivated in some manner by Jewish behavior? I wonder if Trump, Ivanka, or Melania pondered that question in their visit to the Western Wall? Probably not.

Gulf States ‘Offer Deal To Israel’

Gulf states have offered normalised relations in exchange for renewed push for peace with Palestinians, report says

By MEE

May 17, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – Numerous Gulf states have offered a deal to normalise relations with Israel if Tel Aviv takes steps to restart peace talks with the Palestinians, according to reports.

The offer to normalise relations come a week before Donald Trump visits Saudi Arabia and Israel in his first foreign trip as US president.

The Wall Street Journal said numerous Gulf states were prepared to set up telecommunication lines between the countries, open trade negotiations and allow planes to fly over their airspace.

In exchange, Israel would have to freeze settlement construction in the West Bank and relax trade restrictions with the Gaza Strip.

The proposals to normalise relations with Israel were outlined in an unreleased discussion paper shared among several Arab states, obtained by the Wall Street Journal.

The paper, according to WSJ,  was intended to demonstrate the Gulf states’ commitment to align itself to Trump’s foreign policy, who has stressed a desire to work with Arab states to forge a Middle East peace agreement.

His first foreign trip as president is due to take place in a week and include stops in Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican.

Trump was due to convene Arab leaders from across the region alongside Saudi royal family members in Riyadh.

He was expected to offer details for the first time on his vision for peace between Israelis and Palestinians in a press conference in Jerusalem.

On Monday, Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Mohamed Bin Zayed al-Nahyan, met Trump in Washington.

The Gulf states’ initiative, according to those briefed, underscores the vastly improved relations between Israel and the Gulf states in recent years, driven by their shared concerns about Iran and Islamic State.

Arab and Palestinian leaders, however, remain deeply sceptical that Netanyahu is committed to embracing the peace process.

In recent days, members of his government have increased pressure on Trump to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.

After his visit to Israel, Trump is then expected to meet Pope Francis in the Vatican.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar have been major financial backers of the Palestinian Authority, which rules the West Bank, since its inception in the 1990s.

Israel and Gulf countries have secretly stepped up intelligence sharing, particularly focused on Iranian arms shipments to proxy militias fighting in Yemen and Syria, according to US, European and the Middle East officials involved in security issues.

Qatar, however, has allowed for Hamas to set up a headquarters in Doha.

Israeli officials have also made a number of secret trips to the Gulf, particularly to the UAE, despite their countries having no formal diplomatic relations.
