The martyr finished his academic studies in the Charity school in Burj al-Barajneh and graduated. He chose political sciences as major at University. In 1984, he started pursuing his religious studies, and soon he joined the resistance to fight the “Israeli” enemy.

At a young age, martyr Berro was concerned of applying good manners, and being good to others. He always commemorated Ashura and Imam Hussein’s calamity, and recited the Quran and supplications.

Martyr Berro was kind-hearted, known for his ethics and high spirits. He also did good deeds for the sake of God the Almighty; he was kind to the poor, young and old.

He was pretty much fond of great spiritual leaders like late Imam Khomeini, and put a lot of effort to learn religion through attending lectures and seminars.

Martyr Assad also worked in a glass store to make a living and to disguise his work as a resistance fighter in presence of the usurper “Israeli” enemy. He took part in several resistance operations. Then, he took permission to execute his own operation, which was postponed three times due to circumstances.

On Tuesday, the 9th of August 1989, a huge “Israeli” convoy approached to the Marjeyoun region. Martyr Assad was waiting for it. He raided the convoy with his small pick-up full of explosives, and the convoy was shredded into pieces.

In the name of Allah the most Gracious, most Merciful,
“Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah: of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some (still) are waiting: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least.” {The Clans (Al-Ahzaab): 23}

My dear brothers and sisters:

… The ninth out of the ten who have been true to their covenant to Allah departs for the sake of Allah. After Mohammad Hassouna… Assi and Mahmoud departed, and then the Mufti followed by Ahmed, then Jawad, Jaafar, and Hasan, and now it is the turn of the ninth to depart, for Allah has accepted me, so praise be to Him for this grace…

I grieve because I am not with you…

As I’m preparing for my coming operation, and you know that my character is similar to those eight, I don’t linger and I don’t cower, but the conditions have been harsh on me, so I ask everyone to accept my excuse…

I love every one of you…

… I entrust you to stay away from following your desires and having interest in worldly pleasures. If you have the desire to meet Allah, you have to free yourself from such attachments and from your ego, set yourself free in Allah’s wide world, and struggle for His sake on the path of the Leader who followed the path of the Supreme Leader, the great Imam Khomeini, who drew for us the path of jihad and taught us to move confidently, because he said: “Move confidently and be certain that you are under the protection of the source of power who is Allah the Exalted“… so move freely to work for the sake of Allah based on that “So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith” {The Family of Imraan (Aal Imraan): 139}.

Purify yourselves from all the devilish illusions that are fabricated by Satan and his soldiers…

I ask everyone for forgiveness…

Peace be upon you, Allah’s mercy and blessings.

Your poor brother

Some of the Tales of Patience & Victory

By His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Akram Barakat *

During the brutal Zionist aggression against Lebanon in July 2006, His Eminence Sheikh Akram Barakat was on a special mission to Syria.

The mission covered more than one dossier, including following up on the issue of the displaced. He was keen on looking after the people of resistance in the home of the resistance. His Eminence took honorable stances that must be recorded, remembered and used as a lesson. He chose to talk to Al-Ahed news about some of those. They begin with the following:

They will triumph, not the Ummah

In the middle of the July 2006 war, the decision was made to meet His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Said al-Bouti.

Sheikh al-Bouti’s home in Damascus was not on the ground floor. It was a few stories higher. So it was necessary to climb an old staircase in a small building. We didn’t have to take the stairs because there was no electricity. There was no power outage – the sort we are used to in Lebanon. But we took the stairs because there was no elevator in that building.

Sheikh al-Bouti and one other gentleman received me in his small, modest reception room, welcoming me with his usual smile. One of his sons was with him. He had inherited his father’s kind features and calmness.

I began by thanking him for his supportive attitude towards the resistance, which stems from the purity of the heart and foresight. I made a distinction between him and the Saudi Sheikh Ibn al- Uthaymeen, who at that time forbade prayers for the resistance. The sheikh told me about his position on Shia Muslims as a Sunni scholar who was committed to what he believes.

He surprised me when he asked:

Do Shiites have a special project contrary to what they declare, as many claim, and therefore their motive does not stem from loyalty to Allah Almighty?

Suddenly the voice of the sheikh shuddered. His facial features changed, and as if talking to himself aloud, he said:

I wonder where Sayed Hassan is now?

Is it possible that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is unfaithful?

Is it right for me – a person sitting comfortably on this couch – to be wondering about his sincerity, while he is now on the battlefield?

I wonder where Sayed Hassan is now?

The old sheikh started crying, shedding tears. His son had to intervene to calm him down from that sincere, innate and emotional outburst.

But the Sheikh continued his speech. Shedding tears, with the hoarseness in his voice and the trembling of his slim body, he said,

Image result for ‫اصبع السيد حسن‬‎“Oh, how I wish I was one of Sayyed Hassan’s fingers!”

I do not know! Perhaps during his speech, he remembered Sayyed’s finger that gave the latter power while moving it during the Takbeer of Ihram [the utterance of Allahu akbar in prayer]. This power made the enemy tremble when he [Sayyed Nasrallah] waves his finger during his speeches. This finger is the Finger of Tawheed, the finger of threat, the finger of Tawalli and the finger of Tabbari. It is the finger of eminence and beauty.

The old scholar was not satisfied with mere words, but expressed his wish to meet Sayyed in a special meeting to kiss the grip of power, which is purified by the ablution of the knowledgeable, and the hand holding the sword that is defending the nation.

Image result for ‫اصبع السيد حسن‬‎“Since the beginning of this war, I have traveled to Homs to meet one of the righteous awliya. I asked him to pray for the resistance in Lebanon. He replied: O Sheikh Said, since the beginning of this war, I have been repeating a special prayer for the victory of the resistance. Rejoice Sheikh Said. They will triumph, and not the Ummah,” Sheikh al-Bouti continued saying while shedding sincere tears.

After that, we bid the old Sheikh farewell. He made us feel ashamed because he refused to bid us farewell from his home. He walked us to the car despite his old age and his great stature, not to mention the added difficulty of going up and down the stairs without an elevator.

This was the degree of his morality. This is his love for Sayyed. The latter was deeply affected when I told him what happened in Damascus.

When I heard about the martyrdom of Sheikh al-Bouti while giving a religious lesson in a mosque, I was not surprised. After all, martyrdom suits him.

From Sayyed Hassan to Sayyed Hassan

A Syrian woman in her 70s went to a center for the Islamic Resistance Support Association. She opened her bag and took out a large swath of money in Syrian currency. She gave it to the representative of the Association, saying: “This is a donation for the Islamic Resistance.”

The representative was surprised by this amount of money, as the woman did not look rich. He could not help himself and asked her the reason behind her donation. She replied confidently and calmly:

“Today I received my full pension, and I came to donate it to the resistance. It deserves it more than me.”

The representative of the association was surprised by what she said. That act made him emotional as he listened to her near the blessed Sayyeda Zainab shrine. Holding his pen, he asked the honorable lady:

“Would you kindly tell me your name so I can write it down on the receipt of the donation?”

She replied with pride:

“Write, From Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.”

Our women are in the service of your women

I was contacted by a Syrian deputy from the People’s Council. He asked me to come to one of the buildings in al-Sham. He mentioned that these buildings were allocated for the families of the Mujahideen in the Islamic Resistance.

I arrived with the deputy and toured a new building, which was equipped with modern furniture. To my surprise, a cinema was set up, a cafeteria filled with things children love, and a prayer room equipped with clay tablets [Turbah] for prostration [sajda].

The ‘Sunni’ deputy carried the sajda tablet towards me and asked: Are these good?

What surprised me more is what I saw next-door to that building. There was a small playground for children. Alongside it was a Shawarma restaurant.

As we left the building, I noticed a few buses. The deputy told me that they were in the service of the Mujahideen’s families whenever they wished to travel to Damascus.

I thanked the deputy, asking him to convey my thanks to the person who came up with this idea and kind initiative. His answer was: This initiative is the least we can do for the families of the Mujahideen who are fighting the “Israeli” enemy in Lebanon and defend the whole nation. We hope to make the children of the Mujahideen and their wives comfortable, including in matters related to services. We do not want the wives of the Mujahideen to tire themselves, so “our women will serve the women of the men of God.”

I am one of those women

Hours after the resounding victory of the July war, the Iranian ambassador to Damascus called me to ask me to attend a political celebration in the Syrian capital on the occasion of this divine victory. I arrived to the hall and found that it was filled with diverse political figures from more than one Arab and Islamic country.

His Eminence Sheikh al-Akhtari, the veteran Iranian Ambassador, informed me of the program of the celebration. The program included a speech by the Minister of Awqaf in Syria and another by the General Mufti. He asked me to speak on behalf of the Islamic Resistance and the Islamic Republic of Iran. I thought quickly about what was appropriate to say in this forum, and I thought that the speech should be about the culture of the resistance, which is what made this great divine victory possible. During my speech, I recalled some of the moments I experience in al-Sham with the beloved Syrian people during the war. One of the things I mentioned was my aforementioned exchange with the Syrian deputy who told me: “We do not want the wives of the Mujahideen to tire themselves, so our women will serve the wives of the resistance fighters.”

When the ceremony ended, many of the attendees came to congratulate me. One of the attendees was a middle-aged woman. She told me with tears in her eyes: “I am a deputy in the Syrian People’s Council. And I was one of those women you spoke about. I had the honor of serving the wives of the resistance fighters.”

بعضٌ من حكايا الصبر والنصر

Image result for ‫منزل الشيخ البوطي‬‎

بقلم سماحة الشيخ الدكتور أكرم بركات*

خلال العدوان الصهيوني الغاشم على لبنان في تموز 2006، كان سماحة الشيخ أكرم بركات حاضرًا في سوريا على مدار الأيام، في مهمّة غاية في التميّز، ترتبط بأكثر من ملف، بينها متابعة شؤون النازحين هناك، فكان حريصًا على أهل المقاومة في ديار المقاومة. وكانت لسماحة الشيخ مشاهدات مشرِّفة، لا بد من تدوينها، واستذكارها، لتكون درسًا وعِبرة، خص موقع “العهد” الإخباري بها، ومن هنا تبدأ:

* هم سينتصرون وليس الأمّة

في منتصف حرب تموز/ يوليو من العام 2006 كان القرار بلقاء سماحة العلامة الشيخ د. محمد سعيد البوطي.

لم يكن المنزل الدمشقي للشيخ البوطيّ متاخمًا للأرض، بل كان يرتفع عنها بضعة طوابق، لذا كان لا بدّ من الصعود على الدّرجات القديمة لذلك المبنى الصّغير، لا لانقطاع التيّار الكهربائيّ، كما اعتدنا في لبنان، بل لعدم وجود مصعد في تلك البناية.

Image result for ‫البوطي وابنه‬‎

مع أحد السّادة الأجلاء استقبلني الشيخ البوطيّ في صالونه الصّغير المتواضع مرحِّبًا بابتسامته المعهودة وإلى جانبه أحد أبنائه، وقد ورث من أبيه ملامح الطّيبة، وهدوء النفس.

الشيخ البوطي رحمه الله:

هل من الصحيح أن أتساءلَ ـ أنا الجالس المرتاح على هذه الكنبة ـ عن إخلاصه، بينما هو الآن في ساحة الحرب؟

ابتدأتُ الكلام بشكره على موقفه الداعم للمقاومة، المنطلق من طهارة قلب، وبصيرة عقل، مميّزًا بينه وبين الشيخ ابن عثيمين السعودي الذي حرّم في ذلك الوقت الدعاء للمقاومة.

بادرني الشيخ بالحديث عن موقفه من المسلمين الشيعة، بوصفه عالماً سُنّياً متمسّكًا بما يعتقده، وفاجأني بطرحه لتساؤل لديه:

هل للشيعة مشروع خاصّ، خلاف ما يُعلنون، كما يُروِّج لذلك الكثيرون، وبالتالي، لا ينطلقون من دافع الاخلاص لله عزّ وجلّ؟

فجأة تلجلج صوت الشيخ، وتغيَّرت معالم وجهه، وأخذ يقول، كمن يتحدث مع نفسه بصوت عال:

هل يعقل أن يكون السيّد حسن نصر الله غير مُخْلِص؟

هل من الصحيح أن أتساءلَ ـ أنا الجالس المرتاح على هذه الكنبة ـ عن إخلاصه، بينما هو الآن في ساحة الحرب؟

ترى أين يكون الآن السيد حسن؟

وأخذ الشيخ العجوز يبكي ذارفاً دموعاً كثيرة، ما استدعى نجله لأن يتدخَّل لتهدئته من نوبة تلك العاطفة الفطريّة الصادقة.

لكن الشيخ أكمل حديثه، مع ذرف الدموع، وبحة الصوت، وارتجاف الجسم النحيف:

“يا ليتني إصبعٌ من جسد السيّد حسن”.

Image result for ‫اصبع السيد حسن‬‎

لا أدري، لعلّه كان يتذكّر أثناء كلامه اصبع السيد الذي منحته حركته في تكبيرة الإحرام قوةً أصبح العدوّ يرتجف منه حينما يلوِّح به في خطبه، فهو إصبع التوحيد، وإصبع التهديد، هو إصبع التولي، وإصبع التبري، هو إصبع الجمال، وإصبع الجلال.

Image result for ‫اصبع السيد حسن‬‎

لم يكتف العالم المسنّ بتلك الكلمة، بل أردف معبِّرًا عن أمنيته في مقابلة السيِّد بلقاء خاص ليلثم قبضة القوّة، المطهَّرة بوضوء العارف، القابضة على زند السيف المدافع عن الأمّة.

وأكمل الشيخ البوطيّ حديثه، اللابس هذه المرّة معطف الصوفيّ، غير منقطع عن ذرف الدموع الصادقة التي اغتسلت بها روح هذا العالم السنّي، حتى أضحى صفوان أملس، لم تستطع أمطار المذهبيّة أن تستقرّ فيه، فقال:

“أنا، منذ بداية هذه الحرب، سافرت إلى حمص قاصداً أحد الأولياء الصالحين، وطلبت منه أن يدعو للمقاومة في لبنان، فإذا به يجيبني: يا شيخ سعيد، منذ بداية هذه الحرب أردّد وردًا خاصّاً لأجل انتصار المقاومة، أبشر يا شيخ سعيد، إنّهم سينتصرون وليس الأمّة”.

بعدها ودّعنا الشيخ بما أخجلنا، فهو لم يرتضِ إلا بتشييعنا من طابقه العلويّ إلى السيارة التي أقلّتنا، رغم سنّه الكبيرة، ومقامه الجليل، وصعوبة النزول والصعود بلا مصعد كهربائيّ.

إنها أخلاقه، إنها محبّته للسيّد الذي تأثّر أيّمَا تأثّر حينما رويت له ما جرى في هذا المشهد الشاميّ.

حينما سمعتُ بخبر شهادة الشيخ البوطيّ وهو يلقي درسه في بيت الله لم أتفاجأ؛ فمن كانت تلك مواقفه، تليق به هذه الخاتمة.

 

*من السيد حسن إلى السيد حسن

أقبلت امرأة سوريّة في العقد السابع من العمر إلى مركز هيئة دعم المقاومة الإسلامية، فتحت حقيبتها التي كانت تحملها، وأخرجت منها كميةً كبيرةً من المال بالعملة السوريّة، وأعطتها لمندوب الهيئة، قائلة:

“هذا تبرّع للمقاومة”.

اكتب: “من السيّد حسن نصر الله، إلى السيّد حسن نصر الله”

تفاجأ الأخ المندوب من تلك الكميّة من المال، في حين أنّ المرأة لا يبدو عليها الثّراء، ولم يستطع صبراً على حديث نفسه، فسألها عن سرّ ذلك، فأجابت بثقة وهدوء: “اليوم قبضت كامل راتبي التقاعدي، وقد جئت أتبرّع به للمقاومة، فهي أحقّ به مني”. اندهش مندوب الهيئة من كلامها، وكادت العبرة أن تخنقه، وهو يستمع إليها قرب المشهد الزينبيّ المبارك. سألها وهو يحمل قلمه ليكتب على إيصال هيئة الدعم اسم تلك المرأة الشريفة، قال لها: هل تتفضّلين عليّ بذكر الاسم الكريم لأكتبه على ايصال التبرّع، فأجابته بعزّة وشموخ:

اكتب: “من السيّد حسن نصر الله، إلى السيّد حسن نصر الله”.

* نساؤنا بخدمة نسائكم

اتصل بي نائب سوريّ في مجلس الشعب يطلب منّي الحضور إلى أحد المباني الشاميّة التي ذكر لي أنّها خُصّصت لإقامة عوائل المجاهدين في المقاومة الإسلاميّة.

وصلت إلى هناك، وقمت مع النائب بجولة في ذلك المبنى الجديد الذي جُهِّز بأثاث حديث، وما فاجأني فيه تخصيص قاعدة سينما، وكافيتيريا مملوءة بما يحبّه الأطفال، ومصلّىً وضعت فيه أقراص ترابية للسّجود عليها.

حمل النائب “السنّي” قرص سجدة، وأدناه مني سائلاً: هل هذه “السجدات” جيّدة؟!

وما زاد مفاجأتي ما رأيته إلى جانب المبنى من ساحة تشكّل مدينة صغيرة لألعاب الأطفال، وإلى جانبها أدوات مطعم مخصّصة للطعام المعروف بـ “الشّاورما”.

قمنا بتنظيم وترتيب كل ما يوفِّر الرّاحة لأطفال المجاهدين وزوجاتهم، حتى الأمور المتعلقة بالخدمة، لا نريد لزوجات المجاهدين أن يرهقن أنفسهنّ

وعند خروجنا من ذلك المبنى التفتُّ إلى وجود بضعة “باصات” أخبرني النائب أنّها بخدمة عوائل المجاهدين حينما يريدون التنقّل داخل دمشق.

شكرتُ سعادة النائب طالباً منه أن ينقل شكري إلى صاحب الفكرة والرعاية لهذه المبادرة الطيّبة، فكان جوابه:

إنّ هذه المبادرة هي أقلّ واجب نقوم به مع عوائل المجاهدين الذين يقاتلون هذه الأيّام العدوّ الإسرائيلي في لبنان، ويدافعون عن الأمّة جمعاء، وقد قمنا بتنظيم وترتيب كل ما يوفِّر الرّاحة لأطفال المجاهدين وزوجاتهم، حتى الأمور المتعلقة بالخدمة، لا نريد لزوجات المجاهدين أن يرهقن أنفسهنّ، لذا فـ “نساؤنا سيخدِمْنَ نساء رجال المقاومة”.

* أنا من هؤلاء النساء

بعد النّصر المدوّي في حرب تمّوز بساعات اتّصل بي سفير الجمهورية الإسلاميّة الإيرانيّة في دمشق طالباً منّي الحضور إلى احتفال سياسيّ في دمشق بمناسبة هذا النصر الإلهيّ. وصلت إلى القاعة فوجدتُها ممتلئة بحضور سياسيّ متنوّع من أكثر من بلد عربي وإسلاميّ.

أطلعني سماحة الشيخ الأختريّ، السّفير الإيرانيّ المخضرم، على برنامج الاحتفال، وأن فيه كلمة لوزير الأوقاف في سوريا، وكلمة للمفتي العام فيها، طالباً أن يكون لي كلمة باسم المقاومة الإسلاميّة والجمهوريّة الإسلاميّة الإيرانيّة معاً. فكّرتُ سريعاً بما هو مناسب للحديث في هذا المحفل، فخطر في بالي أن تكون الكلمة حول ثقافة المقاومة التي صنعت هذا الانتصار الربّاني الكبير. وأثناء كلمتي استحضرتُ بعضاً من المشاهد الشاميّة التي عايشتها مع الشعب السوري الحبيب أثناء الحرب، وذكرتُ من بين تلك المشاهد ما تقدّم ذكره من قول ذلك النائب السوريّ لي:

“لا نريد لزوجات المجاهدين أن يرهقن أنفسهنّ، لذا فنساؤنا سيخدمن نساء رجال المقاومة”.

وحينما انتهى الاحتفال أقبل العديد من الحاضرين لتهنئتي، ومن جملتهم أقبلت امرأة متوسّطة في العمر، وقالت لي، والدموع تُذرف من عينيها:”

أنا نائب في مجلس الشعب السوري، وأنا كنت من أولئك النساء اللواتي تحدّثت عنهن، كان لي شرف أن أكون في خدمة نساء رجال المقاومة”.

S. Nasrallah: Israeli Brigades to Be Destroyed in Lebanon, I Felt Pity for Saudi King!

S. Nasrallah: Israeli Brigades to Be Destroyed in Lebanon, I Felt Pity for Saudi King!

Marwa Haidar

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.
