Sayyed Nasrallah to Israelis: It’s All Over… You Can’t Imagine Your Fate in Future War!

September 20, 2018

Sayyed Ashura

Once again, Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah reminds the Israeli enemy that the entire balance of power between the resistance in Lebanon and the Zionist regime has changed.

This year on Ashura anniversary, Sayyed Nasrallah told the Zionists that all their attempts to prevent Hezbollah from possessing advanced and accurate missiles have been foiled, stressing that the issue “is all over” and that the Israelis themselves can’t imagine their fate if these missiles are used in any future war.

Addressing attendees of Ashura march in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh) on Thursday, Sayyed Nasrallah voiced Hezbollah’s stances on several regional and local issues.

Path of Dignity

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech talking about the occasion. His eminence sent condolences to Imam Mohammad Al-Mahdi (AS) on the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS).

Sayyed Nasrallah saluted all those who took part on the Ashura march and ceremonies in the last ten days in Dahiyeh and in other areas across Lebanon. His eminence reiterated Hezbollah and the resistance’s commitment to the path of Imam Hussein, path of dignity, stressing that all sacrifices and victories were achieved due to the commitment to this path and this school.

“Imam Hussein’s resounding saying “Never to Humiliation” will last,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“Today, all crowds in Lebanon’s Dahiyeh, south, Bekaa and in the entire region is an indication that Imam Hussein’s blood really defeated the sword.”

Palestine, Yemen, Bahrain

Stressing that the tenth of Muharram is the “day of stances”, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah’s firm position in supporting people of Palestine, Yemen and Bahrain.

“First, we reiterate our ideological commitment to Palestine and Al-Quds. We reiterate our support to Palestinian people and their legitimate rights to confront the so-called ‘deal of century’,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, as he hailed the Return Marches at the border between Gaza and the occupied territories.

“Second, we stress our firm stand by Yemeni people who have been witnessing Karbala for nearly four years. This oppressed people have been demonstrating all forms of steadfastness, courage and patience, just like Karbala… It is all Muslims and Arabs’ duty to denounce and act in order to prevent the Saudi war in Yemen, this is moral responsibility.”

Third, we reiterate our support to peaceful people of Bahrain whose scholars and youths have been jailed and suppressed by the Bahraini regime,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, as he lashed out at Bahraini regime’s policy of naturalization of foreigners in the country in a bid to make demographic change in the Gulf island.

Iran and Lebanon

Sayed Nasrallah stressed that “it is our duty to stand by” the Islamic Republic of Iran in face of all kinds of pressures.

“Iran is being punished by the US for a clear reason: it refuses to subdue to the American master like other states. It wants to stay independent and sovereign state. We have to recall its support to the resistance in Palestine and Lebanon, its support to Iraq and Syria in face of ISIL.”

On Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated the call for calm and dialogue, as well as the call to hasten the formation of the new cabinet.

Future War with Zionist Entity

Turning to the struggle with the Zionist entity, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the resistance has to stay on alert, noting that the Israeli enemy has been furious because its scheme in the region has failed.

“They (Israelis) were betting on the events in Syria and Iraq. But now they know well that the axis of resistance is more powerful and that more sides joined this axis.”

“Israelis are concerned, and we have to be vigilant… We should not be at ease. The enemy fears any future confrontation in the region, especially with Lebanon. He (Israeli enemy) knows well that any future war will have massive repercussion, and that his points of weakness are known to us.”

Sayyed Nasrallah cited remarks of Israeli defense minister who talked about strategic changes that took place in the Middle East.

“Few days earlier, Israeli DM said that in the Middle East strategic changes took place, noting that the first change is that Israel’s enemies acquired accurate missiles and that the Israeli home front became the main front in any future war. The Israeli minister said that in 1973 war Israelis in Tel Aviv were at calm, they were taking coffee and reading newspapers. But he noted that now, everything has changed. I tell the Israeli minister: Yes, everything has changed.”

Sayyed Nasrallah meanwhile, pointed out to Israeli attempts to prevent Hezbollah from acquiring advanced and accurate missiles in Syria.

“They (Israelis) have been working hard to cut off the road and prevent us from possessing accurate missiles. I say whatever you do to cut off the road on us, it’s all over, we are now in possession of accurate missiles that if used in any future war you can’t expect what your fate will be.”

“The Israeli enemy knows well that technology alone can’t have the final word in the battle without the human capabilities.”

Sayyed Nasrallah furthermore hit back at Israeli remarks that the Hezbollah S.G. “threatens from a shelter,” by saying: “Allah has elongated my lifespan and you have been trying in day and night to kill me but I’m still alive. Staying alive is an indication for your failure.”

The resistance leader then concluded his speech by saying that all Hezbollah’s power and steadfastness “is from Imam Hussein (AS),” stressing that:

“All our days are Ashura and we have written ‘At Your Service O Imam Hussein’ with blood and patience.”

Sayyed Narallah: Hezbollah to Remain in Syria, “Israeli” Attacks Are No More Tolerable

Full Video (Arabic) below

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Wednesday a speech in which he tackled various Lebanese, regional and international topics.

Addressing tens of thousands of mourners commemorating the 10th night of Muharram, Sayyed Nasrallah thanked the Lebanese Army and security forces and all those who contributed to providing the security environment for Ashura.

“We-in Hezbollah-look to the American administration as an enemy while some in Lebanon view it as an ally,” His Eminence stated.

Addressing America’s allies in the region, Sayyed Nasrallah asked: “Does strengthening of  US in sake of “Israel” all over the time moves in the interest of the peoples in the region?”

He further asked the Lebanese who oppose Hezbollah’s stance towards the US administration if they have any evidence to prove that it is a friend of our country.

“Is it in the interest of the Palestinian and Lebanese people as well as the region that [US President Donald] Trump recognizes Al-Quds as the capital of “Israel”? he asked,  adding: “Is it in the interests of the Lebanese people that America revoke the Palestinians their right of return and boycott the UNRWA?”

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to ask:

“Is America a friend of the Palestinian people as it fights them to deprive them of their right to have their own state? Didn’t the US bring the terrorist takfiri groups into our region to destroy it? Is this in the interest of the people in the region?”

He further slammed the US administration and particularly its National security Advisor John Bolton for threatening the International Criminal Court if it acts against the apartheid “Israeli” entity.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah cautioned that the US administration is pushing for the naturalization of Palestinians to serve “Israel’s” interests. “Who’s in favor of a demographic change in Lebanon and Syria? We are before countries and political forces who are obstructing the return of refugees.”

“The real ruler in some Arab and Islamic countries is the American ambassador,” Hezbollah Secretary General stressed.

According to His Eminence,

“The US support has prolonged Daesh’s [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist “ISIS”/”ISIL” group] presence in some areas in northeastern Syria. Daesh militants are being transferred to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt and Yemen via US helicopters.”

“The US threatens the people of the region by imposing sanctions on them,” Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated, pointing out that “Saudi Arabia started the war on Yemen and announced its objectives, with the US support and assistance.”

In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah warned that the US is the real problem in the region. “Even “Israel” is a tool for the US schemes.”

“The US interferes in all the internal affairs of the countries, even in the affairs of world powers such as Russia and France,” he said advising all those who want to deal with the US administration as an enemy to pay attention and be cautious.

On the internal Lebanese front, His Eminence viewed that “dissociating ourselves and our country from what is happening in the region is a serious controversial issue in Lebanon.”

“The events in the region are critical for the Lebanese people,” Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed, highlighting that “Lebanon cannot be separated from what’s happening in the region.”

He also wondered: “Isn’t  the deal of the century and the way the US administration is addressing the issues of Palestine implicating Lebanon?”

“All political parties in Lebanon intervened in the Syrian crisis according to their capabilities,” he added, calling the Lebanese “before convincing yourselves, you must convince Daesh and al-Nusra that the events in Syria and Iraq are internal affairs.”

To the Lebanese, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “The fate of Lebanon is made in Lebanon and in the fields of the region.”

“Had Daesh seized control of Syria, what would have Lebanon’s fate been?” he questioned, announcing that “this year, we’ll witness the end of Daesh.”

Welcoming the Turkish-Russian agreement to create a buffer zone in Idlib, His Eminence described it as “good, reasonable and subjected to results.”

The Resistance Leader also announced that “Hezbollah will stay in Syria for the fight against terrorism as long as Damascus needs it.”

“No one can force us out of Syria… We will stay until further notice. We’ll stay there after Idlib’s agreement,” he stressed, adding, “Our presence there is tied to necessity and to the consent of the Syrian leadership.”

Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “with the accord reached over Idlib, and if everything is done correctly, we can suppose that Syria will head towards a great calm, and in concrete terms there will no longer be front lines.”

On a related context, His Eminence confirmed that “the continuous “Israeli” aggression against Syria is being carried out under various excuses.”

““Israel” is working to prevent Syria from possessing missile capabilities that achieve a balance of deterrence,” he added, noting that “ the “Israeli” claims that Iran is arming Hezbollah in Latakia are totally baseless.”

Hezbollah Secretary General further highlighted that “a lot of “Israeli” attacks on Syria have nothing to do with arms transfers to Hezbollah. These attacks are linked to the failure of the US-Saudi scheme in the region.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “the “Israeli” attacks on Syria are no longer tolerable and must come to an end.”

Regarding the deadlock in the Lebanese internal front, His Eminence said that everyone is talking about the seriousness of the situation in Lebanon. “Obstruction and paralysis are engulfing the cabinet formation process and no solution is looming in the horizon,” he stated.

Hezbollah Secretary General also urged the Lebanese sides to restore to calm and to resolve the controversial issues via communication and wisdom.

“No one can eliminate anyone in Lebanon and we must preserve the atmosphere of dialogue and calm,” Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized.

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah renewed his party’s commitment to all aspects of its electoral program, on top of which is the fight against corruption.

“Those who conspire against our region, such as “Israel” and America, and all their allies will not recognize their defeat and our victory,” he mentioned.

Moving to Hezbollah’s internal arena, His Eminence  said that Hezbollah is under pressure such as the threat of war. However, he assured that “this is closer to the psychological threat than the actual one.”

“Among these pressures are threats of death, war and financial pressure,” Sayyed Nasrallah predicted.

However, according to the Resistance Leader, the most dangerous threats are related to the psychological warfare.

“Suffering failure in the military and security war, the enemies resorted to an attempt to strike us from within. All of this propaganda aims at distorting Hezbollah’s image and credibility,” he cautioned, noting that “our confidence in ourselves, path, resistance and party must be great.”

Sayyed Nasrallah concluded by saying:

“The resistance in Lebanon is the front line for scoring victories in Lebanon and the region. Those leaders, men, officials and incumbent environment are the ones who kicked ‘Israel’ out of Lebanon and made the first Arabic historical victory.Hezbollah’s youth were the ones who took part in repelling the biggest catastrophe that would have occurred in Lebanon and the region. Weren’t for those who are being verbally attacked today, Daesh would have been in your homes and destroyed your sanctities.”

Sayyed Nasrallah Welcomes Idlib Accord: Hezbollah to Remain in Syria

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Nasrallah announced that this year was the year of ISIL’s end militarily in the region, saying Hezbollah will remain in Syria until further notice.

In a televised speech marking the tenth night of Muharram in Beirut’s southern suburb on Wednesday, Sayyed Nasrallah said Hezbollah will remain in Syria as long as the Syrian administration views our presence as necessary. “As long as the Syrian leadership needs us we will stay there.”

Sayyed Nasrallah delivers a televised speech on the tenth night of Muharram“No one can force us out of Syria. We will stay there until further notice.”

“We will remain there even after the Idlib accord,” his eminence said, referring to a Russian-Turkish deal on Idlib, but indicated that the quietness of the fronts and less number of threats will naturally affect the number of Hezbollah fighters present. “With the Idlib accord, if everything is done correctly, we can suppose that Syria will head towards a great calm, and in concrete terms there will no longer be front lines.”

The leader welcomed the outcome of the Iranian, Russian and Turkish diplomacy to spare Idlib a military offensive that could have led to a catastrophic humanitarian situation, saying it was a step towards political solution in Syria but urged a careful implementation of the agreement. On Monday, Russia and Turkey agreed to exclude the military solution in Idlib in favor of enforcing a new demilitarized zone in Syria’s Idlib region from which terrorists will be required to withdraw by the middle of next month.

“This year is the year of ISIL’s end militarily in the region, and this is a great and very important victory for the region and salvation from a great ordeal,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Sayyed Nasrallah tackled the continuous Israeli attacks on Syria, saying they have nothing to do with transfer of arms to Hezbollah. “A lot of Israeli attacks on Syria have nothing to do with arms transfers to Hezbollah and Israel is seeking to prevent Syria from obtaining missile capabilities that guarantees it a balance of terror,” Sayyed Nasrallah indicated.

The Zionist army claimed Tuesday that strikes a day earlier on Latakia targeted a Syrian facility that was about to transfer weapons to Hezbollah on behalf of Iran.

“The Israeli attacks on Syria are only connected to the Israeli-US-Saudi fiasco. Such attacks on Syria had become unbearable anymore, it must be stopped,” Hezbollah’s S.G. pointed out. “The continuous Israeli aggression against Syria is being carried out under various excuses and claims that Iran is arming Hezbollah in Latakia are totally baseless,” he added.

Hezbollah leader elaborated on US influence on some internal and regional axes, saying: “We view the US administration as an enemy, however, others in the region consider it a friend and ally. I ask the Lebanese who have different viewpoints towards the US administration, can you give us a clue on its friendship?”

“I ask US allies in the region, Is consolidating ‘Israel’ in the favor of the Arab peoples? Is America a friend of the Palestinian people as it fights them to deprive them of their right to have their own state? Is America’s boycott of UNRWA in the interest of Palestinians and Lebanese? Is [US President Donald] Trump’s recognition of Al-Quds as the Israeli capital in the favor of the Palestinian people? Is it not the US who came with Takfiri groups to the region?” Sayyed Nasrallah wondered.

He said Washington was helping the Saudi-led coalition in its war on Yemen, and warned all regional actors about the consequences of cooperating with the US in its plots against the region.

“The US is threatening the people of the region by imposing sanctions on them. The US administration had even become fed up with the International Criminal Court and threatened to take measures against it,” his eminence said, assuring that the real ruler in some Arab and Islamic countries was the US ambassador.

He also said the US was the one pushing towards naturalization in Lebanon in favor of ‘Israel’. “Who’s in favor of a demographic change in Lebanon and Syria? we are before countries and political forces who are obstructing the return of refugees.”

“Who in some Arab and Islamic countries would dare to condemn the US interference in internal affairs? Isn’t the way the US is dealing with the Palestinian cause has its effect on Lebanon?”

Supporters gather to salute their leader in the tenth night of Muharram

Sayyed Nasrallah, however, praised the Iraqi people who were able to reject the US dictations despite pressure and threats.

Relatively, his eminence said Lebanon cannot be separated from what’s happening in the region. “Dissociation is a serious controversial issue in Lebanon, as the events in the region are critical for the Lebanese people. Had ISIL controlled Syria, what would have the destiny of Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan and Gulf states been?” All Lebanese parts, he said, intervened in the Syrian crisis each according to their capabilities.

His eminence also accused the US of prolonging ISIL’s presence in some areas Northeast of Syria. “ISIL is being transferred to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt and Yemen via US helicopters,” he said.

In the meantime, Sayyed Nasrallah said the case of East of Euphrates was linked to the US decision, calling on the Kurds not to bet on Washington. He addressed Kurds in Syria by saying that “Washington could abandon you at any price, I urge you to negotiate with the Syrian government.”

Turning to the stalled Cabinet formation process, the Hezbollah leader said “obstruction and paralysis” were prevailing, but assured that no one can eliminate anyone in Lebanon. He said in this context that Hezbollah will submit anti-corruption and anti-backup bills.

“Those who are conspiring on our region, like US, ‘Israel’ and who stand behind them, will not concede defeat,” Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out, uncovering that Hezbollah was exposed to threats like threats of an upcoming war, “but they are more psychological than factual.”

Hezbollah’s leader warned that what’s being written and said via social media was part of a war scheme against Hezbollah. “All of this propaganda aims at distorting Hezbollah’s image and credibility.”

However, he called on people to be wise in what they post and share on social media and to remain cautious.

At the end of his speech, the S.G. said the resistance in Lebanon was the first to make victory in Lebanon and the region. “Those leaders, men, officials and incumbent environment are the ones who kicked ‘Israel’ out of Lebanon and made the first Arabic historical victory,” his eminence added. “Hezbollah fighters are the ones who repelled the most dangerous catastrophe that could have plagued Lebanon and the region.
Addressing those who are waging a campaign against Hezbollah, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “you will eventually fail in this psychological war because we base our readiness to sacrifice on our beloved Imam Hussein (AS) who is the symbol of dignity and sacrifice.”

Those Coming to Kill Us…

Al-Ahed News

“Those Coming to Kill Us” was the title of an article published on the website of “Israel’s” Channel 2 and authored by its analyst Shay Levy. The analyst talks about the increasing level of threat on both the northern and southern fronts.

The article reads as follows:

The last “Hebrew” calendar year was a difficult one in terms of security for “Israel”: the war in Syria which is coming to an end, in return an increased threat from Hezbollah. From the south, we came close to another military operation in Gaza, while the West Bank turned into a volcano threatening everyone with an eruption.

The countries in the region continue to arm themselves with various types of weapons. Part of which poses a threat to “Israel” and another part is not a threat at all. There are practically some countries that have secret relations with Tel Aviv, without the knowledge of its citizens. Eternal enemies have become allies in recent years, and the Americans and Russians have returned to the struggle for regional hegemony.

In short, the Middle East can be described in one word: chaos. It seems that the new “Hebrew” calendar year will be no less tense. So, it is the right time to understand exactly who is threatening us and why. In essence, what is the magnitude of the threat we face?

The threat level from Iran is high. The threat is focal and consists of: surface-to-surface missiles, sophisticated manufacturing of unmanned aerial vehicles and arms in Lebanon, Syria and Gaza as well as activities abroad with Iranian cover that would drag “Israel” into a war like the First Lebanon War.

According to an “Israeli” expert, “Tehran is strengthening its traditional capabilities.” The annual strategic assessment of the Institute for National Security Research stated that “Israel” will face a more dangerous Iran in the mid and long term.

The level of Hezbollah’s threat to “Israel” is high. The main threat lies in the infiltration of “saboteurs” cells into settlements in the Galilee and the capture of soldiers and civilians, the firing of missiles and rockets into “Israel” in addition to the planting of explosive devices and a full-scale war that could extend to the Syrian arena.

According to the strategic assessment, Hezbollah continues to pose the most serious conventional threat since it possesses rocket-propelled grenades for all ranges which are more lethal than before. It also has precision rockets, unmanned attack aerial vehicles, advanced coast-sea missiles, state-of-the-art Russian air defense and land units trained to occupy villages inside “Israeli” territory.

Although popular attention is directed southward, it is clear to everyone that Gaza is only a prelude to the real war that will erupt specifically against Hezbollah in Lebanon. Even within the “Israeli” army, officials are between careful and keen to make it clear that the next war will not be like the one that took place in 2006. They do not only mean through the Winograd Commission.

The commander of the Northern Region Major-General Yoel Strik recently said that the next war would not be the third Lebanon war, but the North’s final war. Indeed, according to various estimates, the next war in Lebanon will be more difficult: the force that will be employed by the “Israeli” army will be double, even triple the size of the previous war. Hezbollah did not rely on past glories but continued to increase its massive missiles arsenal.

The intelligence apparatus estimates that Hezbollah has acquired an additional 150,000 rockets and missiles since 2006. And it can launch hundreds of rockets into “Israeli” territory every day. In this case, the air force cannot stop the fire alone, but will call on ground forces to battle as well.

Meanwhile, the level of threat from the Gaza Strip is medium to high. The main threat could be offensive tunnels, infiltration of cells into border villages with the Gaza Strip, capturing soldiers and civilians, launching rocket-propelled grenades, roadside bombs and a full-scale military operation.

According to the research center, the probability of the situation intensifying is very high. It is true that Hamas is deterred, but it continues to build its strength. Even though both sides are not concerned with this, a confrontation may erupt due to an uncontrolled escalation of a local incident or a deep socio-economic crisis in the Strip that explodes onto “Israel”.

The threat level from Syria is average. The main threat could be through the firing of rockets and anti-tank missiles, air defenses, operations against the “Israeli” soldiers along the border and the situation deteriorating into a full-scale war.

Reports from the Directorate of Military Intelligence “Aman” confirm that the likelihood of war with Syria and Lebanon will increase dramatically after the end of the war in Syria. Even technical terms have changed from the Third Lebanon War to the “North’s War”.

On the other hand, the level of threat from the Gulf States to “Israel” is low. The main threats are represented by regular and improved armies and pro-Iran organizations. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates have huge armies. They have invested billions of dollars and equipped into their armed forces with the best combat systems. It is true that in the past Saudi Arabia sent military forces to wage wars against “Israel”, but today the Gulf countries have a common enemy with “Israel” which is Iran.

The talk is not only centered on the nuclear threat. Iran is operating “Houthi arms” in Yemen which are fighting against the Saudis. The rockets launched by the Houthis towards ships in the Black Sea raised great concern within the “Israeli” security establishment. The Iranian threat produced a system of secret alliances that will prevent any chance of war.

Maneuvers of wasting time in Lebanon and Iraq مناورات تضييع الوقت في لبنان والعراق بالانتظار

Maneuvers of wasting time in Lebanon and Iraq

سبتمبر 14, 2018

Written by Nasser Kandil,

Once again we are talking about the interconnection between forming the government in Lebanon and forming the government in Iraq. The issue is not imaginary, because since the last extension of the Lebanese parliament, and the timing of the parliamentary elections in conjunction with the Iraqi elections, where there were no constitutional opportunities to extend the term of the parliament, the question was about the secret of that conjunction. After the designation of the Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri for  forming a new government in Lebanon and the passing through the stage of stand-still depending on the attempt entitled  no one imposes a deadline on the Prime Minister in his formation of a government on one hand, and the talk about the delay due to the interference in the powers of the Prime Minister, where all the sectarian tools were crowded, and those who are involved to perform their roles in showing the delay in the birth of the government responded, as an expression of the strength of the sect and its status on the other hand, the surprise was the delay for months in the announcement of the results of the Iraqi elections. Furthermore, Both Iraq and Lebanon witness similar surreal scene regarding the governmental situation. In Iraq, no one knows the blocs which will nominate the Prime Minister, while in Lebanon it is a formation that is known for its lack of conditions for the birth presented by the designate Prime Minister. The title in the two countries is to suggest the closeness of the anticipated government, but nothing is true.

This interconnection which reaches the chronological correlation a day by day, since the election on the sixth of May to the announcement of a governmental draft on the third of September is not by coincidence. In Iraq as in Lebanon a US confrontation occured with the forces of the resistance in order to weaken their presence in the governmental equation to the extent of isolation and besieging, and a bet on the development of more effective variables to achieve this goal. Therefore, the bet on them is not in the acceleration of the birth of the movement in both Baghdad and Lebanon. The severe US sanctions on Iran will be carried out after two months, and the International Tribunal for Lebanon will resume its work this month, knowing that it is in the last stage of its mission for issuing judgments to criminalize the resistance with the assassination of the Prime Minister Rafik Al-Hariri. All of that is to weaken the resistance forces and to convince the forces which it became clear that they are the weighing factors in the birth of the government namely; the Kurdish Alliance in Iraq and the Free Patriotic Movement and the President of the Republic in Lebanon that linking their fate with the resistance forces is a suicidal choice. That is why everything is being done to disrupt on one hand, and on the other hand, to make maneuvers that suggest progress to calm down the popular pressure which calls for acceleration under the need of a government, but at the same time without affecting the relationship with the important force which no government will be formed without it.

What was witnessed yesterday by Baghdad and Beirut shows that the manipulation with the constitutional path is continuous, and the birth of a new government will not suit the American timing, but only if it is a government that weakens the resistance forces and confines their participation formally. Keeping this gray scene in this waiting stage is continuous by Al-Hariri and Al-Abadi, but at the end, when the time comes and America loses its bets, it will not pay the cost, rather it will adapt to the new facts, and sacrifices which those whom it presented as title for the bet. Maybe, this is one aspect of the warning of the Secretary-General of Hezbollah “Do not play with fire” because the one who plays with fire, will burn himself first.

مناورات تضييع الوقت في لبنان والعراق بالانتظار

سبتمبر 4, 2018

ناصر قنديل

– مرة أخرى نتحدث عن الربط بين تشكيل الحكومة في لبنان وتشكيل الحكومة في العراق، والقضية ليست خيالاً بوليسياً، فمنذ التمديد الأخير للمجلس النيابي اللبناني، وظهور توقيت الانتخابات النيابية بالتزامن مع الانتخابات العراقية، حيث لا فرص دستورية لتمديد ولاية البرلمان، كان السؤال عن سر التزامن، ومع تسمية الرئيس سعد الحريري لتشكيل الحكومة الجديدة في لبنان ودخول التشكيل مرحلة الوقت المفتوح تأسيساً على معركة دونكيشوتية تم خوضها للفوز بها تحت عنوان، أن لا أحد يفرض مهلة على رئيس الحكومة في تشكيل الحكومة، والحديث عن التأخر مساس بصلاحيات رئيس الحكومة، حيث حشدت كل الأسلحة الطائفية واستجاب كل المعنيين لأداء أدوارهم في تظهير التأخير في ولادة الحكومة تعبيراً عن قوة الطائفة ومكانتها وتجرؤ من يمثلها في الحكم على ممارسة صلاحياته غير منقوصة. وبالتوازي كانت المفاجأة بتأخير شهور في إعلان نتائج الانتخابات العراقية، وبالتزامن أيضاً يشهد العراق ولبنان مشهداً سوريالياً حول الوضع الحكومي، ففي العراق لا يعلم أحد حقيقة الكتلة التي ستسمّي رئيس الحكومة، وفي لبنان تشكيلة معلوم أنها منقوصة الشروط للولادة، يقدّمها الرئيس المكلف، والعنوان في البلدين تخدير الناس بوهم الاقتراب من الحكومة العتيدة، والحكومة لا تولد.

– هذا الترابط الذي يبلغ حدّ التلازم الزمني يوماً بيوم، منذ الانتخابات المتزامنة في السادس من أيار إلى الإعلان عن مسودة حكومية في الثالث من أيلول، ليس صدفة، ففي العراق كما في لبنان مواجهة أميركية مع قوى المقاومة وسعي لإضعاف حضورها في المعادلة الحكومية إلى حد العزل والتطويق، ورهان على تبلور معطيات أشد تأثيراً لتحقيق هذا الهدف، لا ينسجم الرهان عليها مع تسريع ولادة الحكومة في كل من بغداد وبيروت، فالعقوبات الأميركية بنسخة مشدّدة على إيران ستنطلق بعد شهرين، والمحكمة الدولية الخاصة بلبنان تعود للعمل هذا الشهر وهي في نهاية مهمتها لإصدار أحكام لتجريم المقاومة باغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري. والرهان على كل ذلك في إضعاف قوى المقاومة، وإقناع القوى التي بات واضحاً أنها تشكل بيضة القبان في ولادة الحكومة، وهي التحالف الكردي في العراق والتيار الوطني الحر ورئيس الجمهورية في لبنان، بأن ربط مصيرها بصيغ مشتركة مع قوى المقاومة يشكل خياراً انتحارياً، ولذلك يجري بذل كل شيء للتعطيل من جهة، وتمييع الضغط الشعبي الذي يطالب بالتسريع تحت ضغط الحاجة لحكومة، بمناورات توحي بالتقدم، وعدم قطع الخيط الواصل مع القوة الوازنة التي لا حكومة بدونها.

– ما شهدته كل من بغداد وبيروت أمس، يقول إن التلاعب بالمسار الدستوري مستمر، وإن استيلاد حكومة جديدة لا يناسب التوقيت الأميركي، إلا إذا كانت حكومة تستضعف قوى المقاومة وتأتي بها إلى مشاركة شكلية، والحرص مستمر على اللون الرمادي في المرحلة الانتظارية من الحريري والعبادي. لكن في النهاية عندما يصير وقت الدخان الأبيض ويخسر الأميركي رهاناته فهو لا يدفع الثمن، بل يتأقلم مع الوقائع الجديدة، ويصير التضحية بالذين قدّمهم عنواناً للرهان. ربما هذا بعض وجوه تحذير الأمين العام لحزب الله، من اللعب بالنار، لأن اللاعب يحرق نفسه أولاً.

Thank You Sayyed Hadi – updated


Hussein Samawarchi

Leaders preach about the need to join military campaigns to the youth of the country and do it in a most charismatic fashion. They bang one fist on the speech podium and raise the other over their head while explaining how much of a duty it is to give the ultimate sacrifice. In most cases, those drafted, end up committing massacres – Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Bosnia, Vietnam, and the list goes on. In many cases, they return home in a body bag. Never the leader or his kin though; draft dodging is a big thing for the men who send other people’s children to spiritual and physical doom.

[Hezbollah Secretary General His eminence] Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is a man who knew, and still does, every single aspect of the field. He is aware of the complexity of the military situation where every Lebanese grain of sand exists. This is because of the Resistance’s strategic nature; although the honor of martyrdom is a highly sought-after goal, the leadership never places members in losing situations. Tactical intelligence rules resistance operations beginning with preparation stages up until execution and return to base.

The word “Dispensable” does not exist in Hezbollah’s dictionary.

Still, the liberation of a country can be hardly achieved by throwing roses and rice on occupying forces. Maybe try negotiations but that is impossible with an occupier who boasts a mile-long rap sheet written with the blood of endless civilians. Armed resistance is the answer and that does not come without risk.

The man who knows all the risks, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, did not object to his firstborn’s request to join the ranks of the Resistance; specific orders were given to treat the young man like any other son of loving parents who chose to defend Lebanon.

The son of the Secretary-General who leads the only Arab force that brought “Israel” to its knees was martyred. Sayyed Hassan’s reaction was giving gratitude to God for allowing him to join the league of other parents of martyred heroes. He gave the most precious gift of life to Lebanon.

Any father or mother would understand the emotional value of a child and how devastating it is to lose that child. Sayyed Hassan taught the world that it was not a loss, that the martyrdom of his beloved gentle natured son was a gain for the cause of all the oppressed of the world, for the resistance, and for Lebanon. Most importantly, a gain for young Hadi himself who has joined the honored few who are fortunate enough to walk behind the lord of the martyrs, Imam Hussein (AS).

Hadi Nasrallah’s martyrdom was a message to the people of the world. The content was simple and yet strong: The children of those sending your own to war are not more precious than yours.

Sayyed Nasrallah’s reaction was also a message. It conveyed that the country and its independence are more precious than any of us; including himself and his family. It also told people that a true leader looks at everyone equally. “Israel” kept Hadi’s body and refused to hand it over to the Red Cross to deliver to his family for proper burial. There is no doubt that they tried to negotiate over it but the Secretary-General refused to set his son apart from other people’s children after martyrdom just like he did when his son was still in active duty. Sayyed Nasrallah insisted that if there were to be a swapping deal, it should include the hijacked bodies of all the martyrs and not only his son’s.

This is just an example of why Sayyed Nasrallah is loved and revered so much by his followers and respected by others. As opposed to other leaders, he does not engage in theatrics and never asks for what he would not accept on himself. The way he analyzes current affairs and shares the honest outlook with the public is a trait almost exclusive to him. In the year 2000, when the “Israelis” pulled out of South Lebanon in a rush and without prior warning, they left the Lahed militia they had created behind. Although so many atrocities were committed by that militia, Sayyed Nasrallah had ordered the men of the resistance to quickly fill the void created by the Zionist army so as no one would engage in reprisals against the abandoned agents who tortured and killed so many of the people of the South. The Secretary-General of Hezbollah dedicated the liberation victory to all the Lebanese regardless of political affiliations and religion; he prohibited manhunts and left the issue of the local “Israeli” collaborators to the government.

In a way, the Sayyed prevented further blood being spilled on the land that was irrigated with the immaculate one of so many martyrs, including his son’s. Patriotism is always the basis of Sayyed Nasrallah’s decisions.

Hadi and his colleagues, those who preceded him and those who followed, have given their lives to keep our children safe. Without them, “Israel” would have annexed South Lebanon by now and would have claimed the riches recently found in the sea. Without them, “ISIS” would have probably spread its cancerous existence much further inwards like they did in regional countries.

Endless gratitude goes to all the parents of the martyrs because of whom our children live with dignity today. Endless gratitude to Sayyed Hadi whose martyrdom has set much needed standards.
