السيد نصر الله خلال كلمته بمناسبة الذكرى الثالثة لاستشهاد القائد مصطفى بدر الدين

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Thursday vowed that the Israeli brigades which will enter Lebanon will be destroyed before the eyes of the entire world.

During a ceremony held on the third anniversary of martyrdom of Hezbollah senior military commander, Mustafa Badreddine, Sayyed Nasrallah dismissed Israeli threats of launching a war against Lebanon, stressing that such threats come in context of a campaign aimed at intimidating Lebanon and its people.

Sayyed Nasrallah also warned that ISIL still poses threat in the region despite the fact that it was over as a ‘caliphate’ and a state, stressing that the Takfiri terrorist group has for years served the goals of the US, ‘Israel’ and other enemies.

Elsewhere in his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah said he felt pity for the Saudi King Salman who was mocked by US President Donald Trump earlier this week.

Hezbollah S.G. meanwhile said that the resistance in Lebanon becomes day after another more certain that the decision to go into Syria was rightful.

Regarding Shebaa Farms, Sayyed Nasrallah said that as long as the Lebanese state says that the territory is Lebanese then the resistance bears the responsibility to liberate it from the Israeli occupation.

Martyr Badreddine’s Virtues

Talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah praised the commander Mustafa Badreddine as one of the first resistance fighters who confronted the Israeli enemy in Lebanon.

Stressing on the importance of recalling the virtues of resistance martyrs, especially those who worked behind the scenes due to security reasons, Sayyed Nasrallah said martyr Badreddine was faithful, smart who was in the ranks of resistance from his early life and sacrificed himself for the sake of this path.

Sayyed Nasrallah also said that one of martyr Badreddine’s virtues was his enthusiasm and persistence in defending his country and the rightful affairs in the region and theworld.

In this context, his eminence said that Sayyed Mustafa Badreddine was known for being concerned about the Israeli occupation of Lebanon and Palestine, as well as other rightful issues.

“This was at a time when the atmosphere in Lebanon was that any individual cares only for his sect and small group, not for a whole nation,” Sayyed Nasrallah elaborated.

“Sayyed Zoulfiqar believed in victory and defeating the enemy, he didn’t feel afraid of the enemy in both Lebanon and Syria. He repeatedly managed to achieve victory from simple and modest capabilities,” Sayyed Nasrallah said referring to Badreddien’s Nom de guerre.

His eminence also said that the heroic operation in which the resistance ambushed and killed many Israeli soldiers in the southern coastal town of Ansariya in 1997 was one of Badreddine’s achievements.

Sayyed Nasrallah in this context said that there are a lot of resistance fighters who have the spirit of martyr Badreddine.

Threats of War

Sayyed Nasrallah then responded to US, European and some Gulf states’ remarks on the possibility of Israeli war on Lerbanon. His eminence stressed that such remarks come as part of intimidation campaign aimed at exerting pressure on the Lebanese government in order to offer concessions.

“Such intimidation is to wage a psychological war on political, diplomatic and media level in a bid to press the Lebanese government, officials and people in order to offer concessions,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, referring to US officials remarks on Lebanon’s land and maritime borders.

“O Lebanese don’t allow any side to intimidate you. You are not weak. Lebanon has a real power,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the Lebanese people as saying.

“Despite our points of weakness, the resistance’s readiness has not been affected despite the harsh sanctions imposed against us.”

“I won’t talk, nether about Haifa and ammonia, nor about the resistance rocket arsenal. There is a major development, which is the occupation of Galilee. Israel doesn’t dare to get into besieged Gaza… Will it dare to get into Lebanon?” Sayyed Nasrallah wondered.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated a previous promise of wiping out the Israeli enemy in case of a future war by saying: “On the third anniversary of Sayyed Badreddine’s martyrdom we reiterate our promise that all Israeli brigades which will enter Lebanon will be destroyed before the eyes of mainstream media and the entire world.”

Shebaa Farms

Talking about Shebaa Farms, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah Stance regarding the issue, stressing that the territory is Lebanese one and that Hezbollah is committed to what the Lebanese government announces about the issue.

“The Lebanese government says that the territory is Lebanese and it is occupied… Then the resistance is committed to liberate it.” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Rightfulness of Syria Engagement and ISIL

On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Day after another, Hezbollah becomes certain that his decision to go into Syria was rightful in the time and the place.”

“How could ISIL control 40 percent of Syria and half of Iraq?” Sayyed Nasralah wondered, stressing that the Takfiri group is nothing but a puppet created by the Wahhabi ideology by Saudi money and American decision.”

Sayyed Nasrallah noted meanwhile that the plan was that ISIL control Syria, Iraq, then Lebanon and then Iran and all those who confront the US-Israeli scheme in the region.

Sayyed Nasrallah meanwhile, noted that most of promises made by US President Donald Trump during his election campaign were kept, especially those regarding the so-called ‘deal of century’ and ‘milking’ Saudi Arabia.

His eminence warned that ISIL’s role has not been over yet, noting that the Takfiri group still poses threat in the region despite the fact that it was ended as a ‘caliphate’ and as a ‘state’.

Sayyed Nasrallah referred here to series of terrorist attacks carried out by ISIL in Sri Lanka, wondering: “Has anyone asked who funded this ideology which carried out the attacks in Sri Lanka? Isn’t it Saudi Arabia?”

Trump and Saudi

Sayyed Nasrallah on the other hand, denounced the latest executions by Saudi regime of 37 activists, including 32 Shiites.

“What is the crime committed by these people? They are executed just for taking part in peaceful protests or writing their opinion on social media.”

Sayyed Nasrallah slammed international community over their shy reactions over these executions.

“We have to understand that the world which we live in today is knows neither international laws nor morals.”

His eminence also slammed the Saudi King for not preserving his dignity in front of Trump, referring to latest remarks by Trump about King Salman.

“I hate King Salman, but really I felt pity for him when I heard Trump talking in that way.”

“The $450 bn which Trump said he was offered by Saudi Arabia… this money is for Saudi and Muslim people. Al Saud has no right to give them to US.”

Sayyed Nasrallah then cited an acknowledgment by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who confessed of lying and fooling while working for the CIA.

“This means that he is a liar, cheat and a robber.”

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Stronger than Ever, Warsaw Summit Doomed to Fail

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Stronger than Ever, Warsaw Summit Doomed to Fail

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Saturday a speech in which he tackled various international and internal topics.

Addressing thousands of people commemorating Leader Martyrs’ Day, Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed that the Resistance’s strength has been increasing linearly  on daily basis so that it reached its current power.

“This force did not come without facing difficulties and making sacrifices,” His Eminence stated.

On the event, His Eminence recalled that “Our leaders were strong and never shaken or weaken.”

Back to Sheikh Ragheb Harb martyrdom, he highlighted that late Sheikh Resistance Leader stood firm and refused to shake hands with the Zionists.

“Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi talked about the coming victory despite the environment of surrender and weakness that prevailed at the time,” he said, noting that “Sayyed Abbas believed in the victory of the resistance and the end of the Zionist occupation to Lebanon and was looking forward towards Al-Quds.”

As he emphasized that the United States and “Israel” have done all what they can do all over the years to defeat the Resistance, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the fact that the “Resistance has created equations, entered the era of victories and closed behind it the gate of defeat.”

He further denounced the “takfirist, terrorists and others who are only tools in the American scheme.”

Hailing the current Resistance strength, His Eminence revealed that “in the formation of the Resistance there are 40 axes and each axis possesses more than the resistance had on the eve of 2000 liberation.”

“US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was correct in his concern that Hezbollah is now stronger than ever,” he added, pointing out that “The US thinks the source of power is in the weapons, or with money, and so the US sanctions Hezbollah to try to limit its power.”

Moreover, Hezbollah Secretary General underscored that “ the secret of our Resistance’s strength is not only in the weapon but in the strength of faith and determination.”

“The “Israeli” talk about invading Southern Lebanon has become worthless and the Zionists do not trust their army today,” he warned, assuring the Lebanese that “the enemies can’t defeat our Resistance as long as we have this determination and strength.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also said:

“We are strong but we keep our humbleness, specifically with the oppressed people who put their hopes on us, as for the thieves, we treat them differently.”

Undermining the US claims of Hezbollah’s presence in Venezuela,  he refuted all the US claims concerning “Hezbollah’s influence and cells in Venezuela.”

“We express our solidarity with Venezuela in face of the American schemes, but the American claims that there’s a Hezbollah influence are funny,” Sayyed Nasrallah clarified.

Back to the “Israelis”, His Eminence sent a sounding message:

“If the “Israelis” have enough information about us, they will become more deterrent.”

“We are strong in the face of the “Israeli” entity  and its army isn’t prepared to wage war against us,” he stressed.

In addition, the Resistance Leader unveiled that

“the “Israelis” have become afraid that Hezbollah enters the Galilee and storms their settlements.”

On the regional scene, Sayyed Nasrallah explained that

“The regional conspiracy scheme  is resembled by the American hegemony, the occupation of “Israel” and the remaining subordinate regimes.”

Citing an important observation about “Israel’s” role as tool of the US Empire, His Eminence said:

  • “Netanyahu thinks the Americans work for him but he works for them, and all the others do too.”

“America gathered in 2011 hundred forty countries to eliminate the regime in Syria but it failed,” he added, warning that “the enemies are trying to rally the world to conspire against the resistance after the failure of their wars to eliminate it.”

In parallel, he stressed that “The lack of preparedness of the “Israeli” army is one of the consequences of its loss in 2006 war on Lebanon and 2014 aggression on Gaza.”

Commenting on Warsaw summit, the Resistance Leader emphasized: “Today they are gathering the world in Warsaw to support Netanyahu, besiege Iran and target the axis of resistance, and this does not frighten us.”

However, he assured: “Today we’re in a much better situation than before. Warsaw conference is fragile and its first aim was targeting the Palestinian cause.”

“ [Abd Rbo Mansor]Hadi’s foreign minister sitting next to [Benjamin] Netanyahu confirms who is behind the battle in Yemen. The aggression on Yemen is an “Israeli”-American war carried out by Saudi Arabia, UAE and Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.”

Lamenting some Gulf monarchies surrender, His Eminence said: “Bahrain’s foreign minister sitting to Netanyahu’s right shows that the ruling regime is part of the “Israeli”-American structure.”

Revealing the goals of the recent conference, Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say: “the real goals of Warsaw Conference is to erase the Palestinian cause, moving towards normalization and gathering in face of Iran and the resistance.”

“Iran today is stronger than being targeted by any  war,” His Eminence said, noting that “Iran’s response to threats and sanctions was the participation of tens of millions in the 40th anniversary of the Revolution’s  victory .”

He also expressed that the “main concern is over the Palestinian cause and hence the our Islamic people must be aware in the battle against normalization.”

In response, Sayyed Nasrallah uged: “All Arab peoples must return and stand against normalization as the Palestinian people refuse to surrender and normalize.”

On the Syrian front, he announced that “Daesh’s presence in Syria is about to end.”

“Hezbollah was part of the major battle to eliminate Daesh till the Boukmal. The largest area in Syria was liberated by the Syrian army and the allies, including Hezbollah,” His Eminence reiterated, noting that “Who will come out and announce the end of the battle with Desh is the greatest hypocrite in the world Donald Trump.”

According to Hezbollah Secretary General, “ In Lebanon, America was preventing a confrontational with Daesh, and in Iraq, it was America who made Daesh via Trump’s statements.”

Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “All the evidences confirm that the Americans were a factor in delaying the end of the battle with the Daash and they wanted it to last for many years.”

“This is while Americans created al-Qaeda [terror network] themselves and then claimed to have eliminated it. They emboldened [former Iraqi dictator] Saddam Hussein and supplied him with various weapons of mass destruction, and one day got rid of him over allegations that he had developed such munitions,” he highlighted.

On the internal front, Sayyed Nasrallah said that “Iran had frequently expressed eagerness to assist Lebanon, arguing the Beirut government had turned down such offers due to opposition from the US and Saudi Arabia.”

“The lingering power outage in Lebanon is the result of political bickering. Iran could have resolved the matter with its expertise. It is unwise of the Beirut government to think that Iran wants to wrest control over Lebanon,” he stated, calling the “Lebanese government must not let corruption flourish, and must root out the menace. It must act lawfully and courageously, and spend public funds for civil services.”

Sayyed Nasrallah: Trump Biggest Hypocrite, Internal Battle Against Financial Corruption Began

February 16, 2019

Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah

Sara Taha Moughnieh

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah assured Saturday that there are between 35 and 40 resistance axes around the world and their common trait is sympathy with the oppressed people and readiness to sacrifice for their sake.

In a speech he delivered during a ceremony commemorating the “martyred leaders”, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that Sheikh Ragheb Harb refused to shake hands with the Israeli insisting that the occupation will soon end at a time when everyone considered that the occupation has become an imposed fact that they have to live with.

“They taught us patience, hope, belief in God’s promise, courage, good manners, right vision… and these are the traits of the resistance and its people today,” he stated, adding that “the resistance gained its strength and power, and achieved victories in bad circumstances imposed by the US, Israel, and their allies in the region the Takifiris, Saudi alignment, and the Emirates.”

His eminence explained that the “secret of the resistance lies in its faith and spirit not weapons and financial capacities. It lies in its readiness to defend and sacrifice, just like the case was in Syria and Iraq, and this spirit could never be defeated,” yet, he added “it keeps on its humbleness with people, specifically the oppressed ones, but it behaves differently with the thieves.”

As he denied claims about having any brigades in Venezuela or Latin America, he expressed solidarity with Venezuela against the US aggression and reassured that Hezbollah did not have any brigade outside Lebanon and has previously asked his foreign supporters to work separate from Hezbollah so that they wouldn’t be harmed from this relation.

Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that Israel is aware of Hezbollah’s power and this enough deters it from any attack, indicating that the Israeli entity is aware, according to its own officials, that the Israeli army, specifically its ground force, is incapable of engaging in a war now.

“They don’t trust their army, but we trust our resistance. They are certain that the resistance can enter the Galilee but they are uncertain that their army is capable of entering Lebanon, and this is a great transformation. The concern today is in the Israeli settlements not in the south. This is the deterrence equation and it is of great importance,” he said.

Warsaw Summit

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that “the United States today needed to initiate in a new step, it is trying to seek support for Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and this is why it called for Warsaw Summit, but what was the result? No final statement and just repeated speeches.”

“Warsaw Summit does not scare us, just like Sharm Sheikh conference did not scare us in the past even though our situation was harder back then. This Summit is weak, and its target is the Palestinian cause which was completely absent while the topic raised was fighting terrorism and keeping stability in the region, knowing that Israel is the head of terrorism in the region. The real propose out of it was normalization and bringing out the secret Gulf ties with Israel to Public.

Oman and the Emirate’s ties with Israel have been evident in the past but the Saudi ones are newly publicized,” his eminence noted, considering that “from the positive outcomes of the conference is that when Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi sits near Netanyahu, this reveals the real battle in Yemen, which is a US battle against Yemen and its people, implemented by Saudi and the Emirates. The same applies when Bahrain’s PM sits next to Netanyahu, because the Bahraini regime is part of the US, Israeli equation in the region.”

Hezbollah secretary general further noted that the second target of the summit was Iran which is much stronger today to be threatened with any war.

ISIS Defeat

Concerning ISIS, Sayyed Nasrallah affirmed that “it will be finished in Syria in a couple of hours, just like it was finished in Iraq and Lebanon, and this is a great development and victory,” adding: “I just want to point to the US hypocrisy, as the biggest hypocrite Donald Trump will come out to claim victory even though the US did not have anything to do with the battle against ISIS. The US (Obama and Clinton) created ISIS in Iraq by releasing its leaders from their jails and facilitating their entrance to Iraq by opening borders for them, and it wanted it to extend to Syria. Today it comes out to claim victory even though it wanted the battle to last for years. Just like it created Al-Qaeda then claimed victory against it, and just like it strengthened Saddam Hussein in Iraq by supplying him with weapons of mass destruction then got rid of him under the accusation of owning weapons of mass destruction, today Trump the hypocrite wants to claim victory against ISIS.”

Sayyed Nasrallah reassured that the resistance axis is the one that defeated ISIS in the region not the “US hypocrite who came at the end to play the role of the triumphant”.

“The will of the Iraqi government, the Iraqi Army and resistance factions is what defeated ISIS in Iraq,” he confirmed, adding: “Where did the US fight ISIS in Syria? The largest battles were fought by the Syrian Army, public forces, and the resistance movements under the support of the Russian ally, and the US stood an obstacle when the forces reached Furat river and all ISIS elements escaped to the eastern area.”

Addressing Trump, he said: “You sir have stopped the completion of the battle against ISIS because you wanted to target the latter east Furat, which you also failed in doing.”

Lebanese Cabinet

Internally, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed the importance of dialogue for solving all the issues and files.

Concerning electricity, his eminence assured that “the plan that was put in 2006 for solving the electricity issue in Lebanon with the aid of Iran was rejected by the government back then due to the US/Saudi stance on it, and the Lebanese people have been denied their right for 24/24 hours of electricity for 13 years now because of what I call “political distemper”.”

“Iran is willing to help but it is not chasing that, and the silliest thing I’ve heard is that this would help it take control over Lebanon! I mean does Iran really need a couple of loans to do that if it wanted to?”

Sayyed Nasrallah announced initiating in a battle against corruption after the formation of this government, stating: “The first steps in fighting corruption and financial waste were taken, and the two files proposed were: The first file is about 11 billion dollars that nobody knows how they were gone, and the second file is about negotiations being made to take a 400-million-dollar loan for meaningless issues.”

He asserted: “We are ready to be soldiers in the battle of protecting public money. We don’t care to be in the lead but we want to see results, return the stolen money, and stop any stealth from taking place… because all this money being stolen belongs to the people. We will refer to the legislation auhtority in everything, because the legislation and the whole country should take part in fighting this corruption.”

In conclusion, his eminence said: “With the same courage and steadfastness of Sheikh Raghab, Sayyed Abbas, and Hajj Imad we will hold the responsibility of this file and continue on the road that they were martyred on and had hope in. We will keep their will as well as our weapon and thtis will forever be our stance.”

Nasrallah: Syrian Army, Its Allies Are The Parties Which Defeated Daesh

Saturday, 16 February 2019 19:49

BEIRUT, (ST)- Hizbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah has stressed that the Syrian Arab Army and its allies including Hizbollah resistance movement are the parties which liberated the Syrian areas from the terrorism of Daesh, whereas, the United States is the party which created this terrorist organization in the region.

Speaking during a ceremony commemorating resistance “martyred leaders”, Nasrallah said that the most important battles against Daesh were launched by the Syrian army in cooperation with resistance and the allies.

“The Americans have blocked eliminating the extremist organization after the Syrian army had liberated the cities of al-Boukmal and Deir Ezzor and they prolonged its existence for extra 15 months,”  he said, pointing out that the Americans have delayed Daesh defeat and wanted the battle to last for long years.

US President Donald Trump and the American officials have admitted that the American administration is the one which created Daesh terror organization in Iraq and later it expanded to Syria.

“Remarks by senior US generals revealed that the American administration under President Barack Obama created Daesh and called for supporting it and opening the borders for it,” Nasrallah added.

“I just want to point to the US hypocrisy, as the biggest hypocrite of the world Donald Trump will come out to claim victory over Daesh even though the US did not have anything to do with the battle against ISIS and even though Trump himself and other US officials have announced that the American administration is the one which created Daesh,” Hizbollah Secretary General said.

He stressed that the takfiris, the Saudi-UAE alliance, the Bahraini regime, Daesh supporters and all who seek normalization with “Israel” are all no more than tools in the American scheme.

He reiterated that the resistance is strong in the face of the Zionist enemy and the “secret of the resistance lies in its faith and spirit not weapons and financial capacities. It lies in its readiness to defend and sacrifice and this spirit could never be defeated,” yet, he added “it keeps on its humbleness with people, specifically the oppressed ones, but it behaves differently with the thieves.”

According to al-Manar TV website, Nasrallah reiterated that Israel is aware of Hezbollah’s power and this enough deters it from any attack, indicating that the Israeli entity is aware, according to its own officials, that the Israeli army, specifically its ground force, is incapable of engaging in a war now.

“They don’t trust their army, but we trust our resistance. They are certain that the resistance can enter the Galilee but they are uncertain that their army is capable of entering Lebanon, and this is a great transformation. The concern today is in the Israeli settlements not in the south. This is the deterrence equation and it is of great importance,” he said.

On Warsaw Summit, Nasrallah said that the conference was fragile and it sought normalizing ties with the Israeli enemy and fighting Iran as well as resistance movements in the region.

“The real propose out of it was normalization and bringing out the secret Gulf ties with Israel to Public. Oman and the Emirate’s ties with Israel have been evident in the past but the Saudi ones are newly publicized,” Nasrallah made it clear.

It Is the Era of Imad Mughniyeh, The Master of Love & Martyrdom

By Mohammad Ali Jaafar

Beirut – You can only truly know Imad Mughniyeh from the testimonies of those who knew him. We sift through information about him as if searching through secrets. And the more we find out about him, the more we realize that his is a never-ending story. The future promises to reveal more but not everything. With Imad Mughniyeh, we will continue to wait. These are the facts that we wait to be revealed. This is the power of love and the language of the heart that his eyes tell. It is the era of Imad Mughniyeh that will keep bringing us back to him. It reminds us that whoever has the mind of the future does not die. It is the truth that will touch us. Perhaps we will get inspired by its hidden past, present and future.

It Is the Era of Imad Mughniyeh, The Master of Love & Martyrdom

To many, Imad Mughniyeh remains a military commander. His photos, roles and responsibilities were dominated by the jihadist character. The media and politicians overlooked that the man had multiple roles and talents. They made a mistake when they were dazzled by the picture, and not the one who is within! As usual, the observers drowned in circumstantial events and dealt with the incident as an assassination and liquidation. And then the game of score settling and retaliation began. The magnitude and position of the man require extensive examination: How would Hezbollah respond? Who would it target?

At that time, the region was at a turning point. The observers were not aware of what was coming. Only Imad Mughniyeh and his successor, Hezbollah, understood that what was happening was a part of bigger picture. Two years after the assassination, a series of events came into play and the paths of the conflict began to clear. The scene became clearer to others. It was more than just an assassination! It was a necessary step to reshuffle the cards. Only Imad Mughniyeh, who is gone, saw it. Here comes the question: Who departed?

The brilliant mind that was able to connect the paths of the conflict was gone. He used to integrate events into the scene of the broader conflict. He used to balance between strength, the mind and focusing on priorities while keeping an eye on the strategic objective. The practical translation of this theoretically easy rule is very difficult in the world of planning. Prioritization requires an accurate reading of the reality and carefully analyzing it. Here, the qualities of leadership are useful. That is where Imad Mughniyeh came in handy. He was aware that each stage had its priorities.

It Is the Era of Imad Mughniyeh, The Master of Love & Martyrdom

Between the 1965 Palestinian revolution and the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the priority for Haj Radwan was to establish the heart of jihad. This was aided by the Khomeini movement, the battle of Khaldeh in 1982 and the founding of Hezbollah in 1985. Until 1992, the stage required to prove one’s existence and strengthen the presence of jihad. Until 1999, Haj Imad engineered the military and security infrastructure of Hezbollah and formulated its strategic equations. The objective was to be able to impose the Islamic Resistance on the conflict’s rules of the game. Great sacrifices were made during these years. In 1984, his brother Jihad was martyred. In 1994, his second brother Fouad was martyred. Haj Radwan kept his eyes on the strategic objective, which was seeing the “Israeli” entity’s defeat. In 2000, Hezbollah capitalized on these equations and created the first transformation in the history of the Arab-“Israeli” conflict. The stage required someone to revive the spirit of resistance in the region and the world. Hence came the victory of May 25, 2000.

Haj Imad went on to accomplish other achievements. The priority was changed from watching the “Israeli” entity experiencing defeat to achieving victories and imposing them as a reality on the regional level. In 2006, the party consolidated new equations in the conflict due to its victory that proved effective. The resistance movements capitalized on these equations. New equations facilitated Lebanon’s 2006 victories, which in turn led to another transformation in the Arab-“Israeli” conflict.

On February 12, 2008, Haj Imad left and took his secrets with him. Haj Imad was able to move Hezbollah and its strength from its local influences to regional ones. He was also able to impose the resistance’s equations on the region. After his departure, the days revealed one of his secrets, which was the unity of the resistance axis. It was also the result of the equations that Haj Imad Mughniyeh engineered. His career was full of achievements. Haj Imad’s personality was rich with values that remain hidden. He was one of the first to contribute to establishment of the information warfare and believed in it. Yet, the media did not do him justice despite plenty of reasons. Haj Imad Mughniyeh gave rise to men through his values, including practical ethics, humility, true faith, faith in God, the strengthening of spirituality, seeking higher education degrees, raising awareness, confidence in success as well as reflecting love for one’s work and positive thinking.

Today, the conflict is transforming into a global one. It is time to show some of those values. Hezbollah will not recognize the hidden power Imad Mughniyeh struck the enemy with both in the region and the world. It will continue to present the results of the victories as part of many of Imad Mughniyeh’s strategies. And we are required to project a multi-tasking talented Imad Mughniyeh in different languages. It has become a requirement that we incorporate Imad Mughniyeh into our roles in order for us to approach issues with a collective mind, human language and an impact of the present on the future, without departing from the system of historical values.

The present is not ruthless. Only history writes the real lessons. The story of those who drown in the accounts of the present will end with their departure. But those who live the future during their present, each day after their departure will be a history for their nation as it awaits to reveal more about them and their history. This was Imad Mughniyeh in many different languages and personalities. His pictures embodied the military and security dimensions of his personality. However, these dimensions are but a few of his roles. The scent of Palestine that he adored, his charming smile, beautiful eyes and his seductive words sprung from a man’s heart that possessed not just power and strength but also love and adoration for the meaning of Man. The same meaning that many do not know in a world where there is no place for the weak. He was Imad Mughniyeh, the creator of a new era for Man. This is the era of Imad Mughniyeh, the master of love and martyrdom.

عماد مغنية: روح المقاومة

فبراير 13, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– قال الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله ذات مرة، «إن إسرائيل هزمت في الحروب الماضية وستُهزم في الحروب القادمة، لأنها فقدت الروح، فروح إسرائيل مهزومة». ومَن يواكب تاريخ الحروب يعرف أن العبرة الأهم فيها على المستوى الاستراتيجي، عندما تكفّ الحروب عن أن تكون كرّاً وفرّاً، وتصير سياقاً متصلاً لانتصارات مستدامة متصاعدة على ضفة وهزائم متراكمة على ضفة مقابلة، ليست في العناصر التكتيكية للحرب التي يمثلها العتاد والعديد والخطة، بل في روح الجيوش، والروح ليست المعنويات التي يذهب بها الجيش إلى الحرب، فالمعنويات ليست إلا بعض الروح، والروح هي حجم الإصرار والمثابرة على تحقيق النصر والثقة بالقدرة على تحقيقه، والعمل بكدّ وجدّ لأيام وشهور وسنوات للتمكّن من أسبابه، وتحويل الفوز به قضية شخصية لكل جندي أو مقاتل تعادل الوجود وتستحق التضحية به، والتمكن فلسفة قوة تقوم على معرفة العدو عن كثب ودراسة نقاط ضعفه ونقاط قوته، ومعرفة الذات بواقعية ورفع منسوب نقاط القوة وسد الثغرات ونقاط الضعف. وبهذا يصح القول إن الشهيد القيادي المقاوم عماد مغنية كان روح المقاومة، والروح لا تموت مع رحيل صاحبها، بل ربما تتجذّر أكثر.

– عرفت الشهيد عماد منذ إثنين وأربعين عاماً، وكان في الخامسة عشرة، ويقينه بالنصر على مشروع كيان الاحتلال لا يقبل الشك، ومشروعه لبناء روح المقاومة كان سيرة الإمام الحسين. ولما عدتُ والتقيته بعد عامين، كان مشروعه لبناء روح المقاومة قد صار بناء حالة عابرة للتنظيمات الفلسطينية واللبنانية والعربية بمختلف خلفياتها العقائدية يجمعها قتال كيان الاحتلال. ولما عدت والتقيته إبان الاجتياح الإسرائيلي على خطوط المواجهة، صار مشروعه تأسيس المقاومة. وبعد سنوات كان المشروع قد تبلور بحزب للمقاومة، وإمام للمقاومة، ودولة عمق وإسناد للمقاومة، وكانت الروح في فلسفة الحاج عماد بسيطة تقوم على ركائز ثلاث: الأولى هي قتل الخوف بالتوحيد، فهو يقين بأن لا أحد يمكن أو تجب خشيته إلا الله، فكيف نعبده ونخاف سواه وهذه الـ «سواه» هي أميركا و»إسرائيل»، والثانية قتل الجهل بالعلم، والتفوق على العدو بالعلم طريق النصر، والثالث تحويل الاختلال بين السعة والكثرة في البعد الجغرافي والديمغرافي والجيواستراتيجي للبيئة العربية والإسلامية بوجه الضآلة والضيق والمحدودية في حال «إسرائيل» إلى وقائع تستحضر في ساحات الحرب.

– في الأولى كان الإمام الخميني ومن بعده الإمام الخامنئي تجسيداً للروح، وفي الثانية كانت ثنائية الصواريخ والأنفاق طريق تحقيق التفوق الاستراتيجي، وفي الثالثة كان الوصل الجغرافي مع سورية وفلسطين والعراق واليمن والانفتاح على باكستان وأفغانستان طريق بناء المدى والعمق وإكمال الطوق، وقد اشتغل الحاج عماد على المحاور الثلاثة بدأب وجدّ وبالتوازن والتوازي، لا يختلّ ضلع من الأضلاع الثلاثة على حساب سواه، وكما كانت معادلته في الأولى «الطريق إلى فلسطين تقودك إلى الإمام والطريق إلى الإمام تقودك إلى فلسطين». وهو واثق بأن معادلة الإمام «اليوم إيران وغداً فلسطين» هي استراتيجية الدولة والثورة في إيران، كانت معادلته في الثانية أن كل الترسانة النووية والكيميائية لدى العدو لا قيمة لها، بل تصير عبئاً على أصحابها إذا امتكلت المقاومة القدرة على استهدافها، والصواريخ هي السلاح الاستراتيجي الذي يجب امتلاكه وتصنيعه والتمكن من استخدامه، وكان يقول لرماة الصواريخ أريدكم قناصة تستطيعون إدخال الصاروخ من نافذة مقرّ أو موقع ومن فتحة التصويب في متراس، وكما كانت الصواريخ نصف حربه، بالمقابل كانت الأنفاق نصف حربه الثانية، فهي وسيلة اتصال وخزان تموين وذخيرة وموقع مرابض وطريق اقتحام ومناورة والتفاف، وصولاً لتكون تعطيلاً لتفوق النيران التي يمتاز بها جيش الاحتلال، حتى يتحقق الالتحام رجلاً لرجل فيكون النزال الذي يغيّر معادلة الجيش الذي لا يُقهر، وعندها يبدأ قتل الروح في جيش الاحتلال حتى تصير الهزيمة محققة قبل دخول الاشتباك، أما في الثالثة، فقد كان يردّد مقولة العلامة الراحل السيد محمد حسين فضل الله «إن قضية الحرية في العالم لا تتجزأ كما قضية العبودية في العالم لا تتجزأ». ومقولة الإمام الخميني «أن مَن يكسر قيداً من قيود عبوديته هو إنما يفتح نافذة من نوافذ حريتي أنا» ليضيف إليهما مقولته، «إن فلسطين تحرّركم، أياً كنتم وأينما كنتم، فهنا فقط يسقط المشروع الإمبريالي الذي يسند حاكماً مستبداً يعذبكم، أو احتلالاً يغتصب أرضكم، قاتلوا لأجل فلسطين تنتصرون في بلدانكم». وكانت المقولة تصير أشدّ حماسة وقوة عندما يتوجه الخطاب للعرب والمسلمين عن القضية المركزية وعن مكانة القدس الدينية، فكان ينجح في العراق وفي سورية وفي اليمن وفي فلسطين وفي فنزويلا وفي كثير كثير من أماكن سيكون لها دور في يوم مقبل.

– نجح القائد العبقري عماد مغنية في بناء روح المقاومة، كما نجح في تدمير روح الكيان. وتستمر المواجهة، لتضيف المزيد من الوقائع على الروح المهزومة عندما تتقابل مع الروح المفعمة بالنصر، وفي مثل هذا اليوم الذي ترجّل فيه عن حصانه، نهدي دمعة حارة لروحه المنتصرة، وباقة ورد عربون حب وإكبار.

Israelis Throwing Accusations: War Not PlayStation Game


November 19, 2018

Israeli officials have bandied about their cascading failure to escalate the security situation in Gaza strip, Lebanese paper, Al-Akhbar reported on Friday.

Security institutions in the Zionist entity were quick in apportioning blame and trading accusations among themselves and  among politicians over their lack of vision and strategy on Gaza, Yahya Dbouk of Al-Akhbar daily said.

However, amid these serious accusations and the persisting street protests, its seems that Netanyahu’s efforts to crowd out attention from the “swamp” he’s been sinking into, are the most significant event in the wake of the Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s resignation, the report elaborated.

Netanyahu’s efforts also come as the  Israeli military institution faces widespread criticism over the ceasefire in Gaza. For its part, the military institution has also accused politicians of having a narrow political horizons and visions on several challenges threatening the Zionist entity, including Gaza which is considered less dangerous than other fronts

Speaking at a memorial for David Ben-Gurion in the Negev, Netanyahu claimed that Hamas “begged for a cease-fire, and they know very well why.” But his critics and the public opinion didn’t buy his pseudo-pretext. A recent opinion poll showed that only 14% respondents believe that the israeli army has attained victory in its last escalation.

Netanyahu’s opponents, however, continued to criticize the Israeli premier and accuse him of being intimidated by Hamas, Dbouk added, quoting high-level security sources.

The security institution criticized the government and its officials, with high-level security sources telling the Israeli Radio, that the government “does not have a prior vision or a proper perception of the political objectives regarding military operations in Gaza.”

The sources stressed that in the absence of visions and goals of politicians, “it is impossible to determine the objectives of any war.”

The same sources pointed out that the resignation of the Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman “exposed the political institution’s deficiencies”, as the Israeli Security Cabinet, which is constantly manipulated by politicians, has no longer any importance.

Defending the Israeli army and justifying its reluctance to fight, the sources said that “everyone knows that Hamas is Israel’s weakest enemy, and that there are less costly solutions than a large-scale military operation.”

Reserve troops haven’t been called up during the last escalation, the sources pointed out, adding that “it’s impossible to recruit reserves… That has happened three times in the past five and a half years, and that’s totally wrong.”

“When reserves are called up, an immediate war will break out. It isnt a PlayStation game,” the sources said, according to Al-Akhbar report.

Meanwhile, Dbouk cited remarks of by Israeli ministers on the latest flare-up in Gaza, in a clear reference to the confusion the Zionist regime has been witnessing in the past few days.

Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi asserted the Israeli fear of the escalation in Gaza, calling cessation of violence.

The confrontation, demanded by some, could cause the firing of hundreds of rockets daily into Tel Aviv, paralyzing Ben Gurion airport for weeks, Hanegbi said.

“If we enter Gaza, at least 500 soldiers will be killed, and then their bodies will be returned to Israel,” he added.

For his part, Education Minister Naftali Bennett confirmed that he has requested to replace Lieberman instead of Netanyahu, Dbouk reported in Al-Akhbar.

Bennett said that “Israel’s deterrence is eroding,” claiming the only reason he applied for the post is for ‘Israel’ to “go back to winning” and that “for me, security is a calling, not just a job.”

On the other hand, Bennett did not spare Lieberman from criticism.

“The job of a defense minister is not to be led but to lead, not to complain about constraints but to come up with solutions,” said Bennett in an apparent reference to Lieberman, who had complained in his resignation speech that his role had been encroached upon.

Bennett said ‘Israel’ is currently in a dangerous, complex position. “The most dangerous thing for Israel that we began to think there is no solution to terror, to terrorists, to rockets, that you cannot win,” Bennet added.

He also warned that Hezbollah has turned from a small organization into a large army possessing 130 thousand rockets, while Hamas has become more rude, Al-Akhbar added.

عسكر إسرائيل يدفع الاتهامات: الحرب ليست لعبة

يحيى دبوق

تقاذفت إسرائيل مسؤولية الفشل إزاء التصعيد الأمني الأخير في قطاع غزة. اتهامات واتهامات متبادلة لم تُستثنَ منها المؤسسة الأمنية التي سارعت إلى توجيه الاتهام إلى السياسيين، والتشديد على افتقارهم إلى أي رؤية واستراتيجية تجاه غزة، لكن مع تجديد رفضها الخيارات العسكرية وضرورة الابتعاد عنها. فلليوم الثاني على التوالي، تواصل تراشق الاتهامات في إسرائيل على خلفية الفشل في مواجهة غزة، وكذلك الاحتجاجات في الشارع. وفيما تداخلت الأهداف الشخصية والعامة في كل الاتجاهات ولدى جميع الأطراف والشخصيات السياسية، فإن التموضع الدفاعي لرئيس الحكومة، بنيامين نتنياهو، كان الأبرز، في ظل انتقاد واسع النطاق للمؤسسة العسكرية التي اتهمت السياسيين بضيق الأفق والرؤى، وفقدان الخيارات أمام التهديدات، حتى في مواجهة القطاع الذي يعدّ تهديداً مقلصاً قياساً بالساحات الأخرى.

نتنياهو ادعى أن «أعداءنا («حماس») طالبوا بوقف النار، وكانوا يتوسلون من أجل ذلك، وهم يعرفون جيداً لماذا». لكنه كان دفاعاً لم يشفع له أمام منتقديه والجمهور، إذ كشفت استطلاعات الرأي (قناة «كان») أن 14% فقط يعتقدون أن الجيش خرج منتصراً من التصعيد الأخير. أما خصوم نتنياهو، فواصلوا انتقاده لليوم الثاني، ووسمه أيضاً بأنه تهيّب مواجهة «حماس» وجَبُن أمامها. مع ذلك، كان اللافت انتقاد المؤسسة الأمنية للحكومة ومسؤوليها، إذ انتقدت مصادر أمنية رفيعة المستوى بشدة المسؤولين السياسيين، وأشارت في حديث إلى «الإذاعة العبرية» إلى أنه ليس لدى الحكومة رؤية أو تصور مسبق للأهداف السياسية كما يجب أن تكون جراء العمليات العسكرية في غزة، وتحديداً ما تعلق بجولة القتال الأخيرة. وأكدت المصادر أنه في حال الافتقار إلى رؤية وأهداف لدى السياسيين، فمن المستحيل تحديد أهداف أي حرب، مضيفة: «الحديث عن خوف الجيش وخشيته من القتال كلام بلا أسس».

كان لافتاً حديث المصادر العسكرية عن رفض استدعاء الاحتياط

المصادر نفسها أشارت إلى أن استقالة وزير الأمن أفيغدور ليبرمان «كشفت عورات المؤسسة السياسية»، إذ لم يعد لجلسات «المجلس الوزاري المصغر» أي قيمة فعلية جراء اللعبة بين السياسيين. وفي دفاع واضح عن الجيش وامتناعه عن خوض المعارك وتوسعتها، ذكرت المصادر أن «الجميع يدركون أن حماس هي أضعف أعداء إسرائيل، وأن هناك حلولاً أقل تكلفة من عملية عسكرية واسعة النطاق». وفي إشارة لافتة جداً، أكدت تلك المصادر رفض الدعوات التي طالبت باستدعاء الاحتياط خلال التصعيد الأخير، لأن «من المستحيل تجنيد الاحتياط، فذلك حدث ثلاث مرات في السنوات الخمس والنصف الماضية، وهذا أمر غير سوي بالمطلق»، وأضافت: «تمنع إدارة الأمور هكذا، إذ لدى استدعاء الاحتياط، فهذا يعني مباشرة الحرب، وهذه ليست لعبة بلاي ستايشن».

الخشية من العملية العسكرية، كما رفضتها المصادر الأمنية، أكدها وزير التعاون الإقليمي، عضو «الكابينت» تساحي هنغبي، الذي شدد على أن الخسائر من الحرب هي التي دفعت إلى قبول التهدئة. وقال هنغبي إن المواجهة التي يطلبها البعض قد تتسبّب في إطلاق مئات الصواريخ يومياً على تل أبيب، وشلّ مطار بن غوريون لأسابيع، و«إذا دخلنا إلى غزة، فسيُقتل منا على الأقل 500 جندي، نعود بجثثهم لاحقاً إلى إسرائيل».

وبينما عرض وزير التربية نفتالي بينت «اقتداره» و«أحقيته» في تولي وزارة الأمن بعد استقالة ليبرمان، على خلفية الفشل في غزة، أكد خلال عرضه، ومحاولة تحسين أوراق ترشيحه لتولي المنصب، جملة من الحقائق المرتبطة بخيارات المواجهة مع القطاع، وكذلك في الساحة الشمالية في سوريا ولبنان، مع التشديد كما ورد في ديباجته على ضيق وتقلص خيارات إسرائيل العملية. يَرِد في حديث بينت تشخيص التهديد، وهو بمعظمه توصيف للواقع الذي تراه تل أبيب. أما معالجته عبر توزيره لـ«الأمن»، كما يطلب، فمسألة تدخل في أقل تقدير في دائرة الشك، مع التشديد على أن السياسات الأمنية والخيارات العسكرية والأمنية تحددها المؤسسة الأمنية نفسها التي هي أكبر من إمكانات وزير، خاصة إن لم يكن صاحب تجربة وخبرة ومكانة عسكرية أو أمنية، كما حال بينت، وإن كان يدّعيها.

بينت قال إن إسرائيل تمر في مرحلة أمنية هي الأكثر تعقيداً وخطورة منذ وجودها، فـ«الأخطبوط الإيراني يرسل سلسلة من الأذرع المعادية الوحشية لتطويقنا: من الشمال حزب الله، وفي سوريا قوات إيرانية، وعلى حدود غزة حماس التي تزداد تمركزاً وتعاظماً». وأضاف: «منذ عشرات السنين منظوماتنا دخلت في جمود وامتناع عن الالتحام مع العدو. نظرية الفصل والابتعاد عن التماس مع العدو يراها عدونا خشية لدينا من القتال. حزب الله تحول من منظمة صغيرة إلى جيش كبير مسلح بـ 130 ألف صاروخ، أما حماس فباتت أكثر وقاحة، لأنها تؤمن بأننا نخشى المواجهة؛ الردع الإسرائيلي تآكل».
