الأقصى وعرسال… تكامل الشعبي وتآمر الرسمي

الأقصى وعرسال… تكامل الشعبي وتآمر الرسمي

صابرين دياب

أغسطس 8, 2017

في الوطن العربي، ربّما بغير ما هو في معظم البلدان، يتناقض الشعبي والرسمي إلى مستوى تناحري. أينما يتّجه الرسمي، يأخذ الشعبي اتجاهاً آخر ينقضه وينفيه، ذلك لأنّ الرسمي نتاج تراث سياسي أنتجته الثورة المضادة على الأقلّ منذ سايكس – بيكو، فكان جرَّاء ذلك النبت القطري ببنيته السياسية المرتبطة بالخارج ارتباط يؤكده حبل سري مع المستعمر الغربي والكيان الصهيوني.

ودون عودة بعيدة حتى للتاريخ والوقائع الحديثة في الوطن العربي، فإنّ ما يدور اليوم وخاصة في لبنان، وفلسطين، يقدّم لنا صورة كاشفة عن حدثين نقيضين يعمل كل منهما في اتجاه مضادّ للآخر ونافٍ له.

على المستوى الشعبي في فلسطين، ولأكثر من أسبوعين دخل الشارع الفلسطيني المقدسي ومن تمكّن من الوصول من المناضلين/ات من المحتلّ 1948 جولة مواجهات ساخنة مع جنود وشرطة ومخابرات الكيان الصهيوني بكلّ ما وهبتها أميركا والغرب من سلاح وتقنية. اعتمد العدو أشدّ قمع ممكن وأسوأ حرب نفسية بهدف التحطيم المعنوي.

سلاحه القمعي ما وهبته إياه أميركا والغرب

وسلاحه النفسي تهافت معظم الحكام العرب على الاعتراف والتطبيع، وحتى التنسيق مع الكيان ضدّ المقاومة. لكن لا هذا ولا ذاك ثنى الفلسطينيين عن الإصرار عن مواجهة العدو بلا أيّ سلاح، سوى الوطنية والثقافة والدين والتاريخ، وهي الأسلحة التي يفتقر لها العدو مقابل افتقار جماهيرنا لسلاح القتل والخبث والفتك النفسيّين.

وكان للفلسطينيين ما أصرّوا عليه، لا معابر إلى ثالث الحرمين، إلى الأقصى، لا بوابات معدنية ولا خشبية ولا إلكترونية، ليعود العدو للبوابتين الكلاسيكيتين: نقاط التفتيش، وعيون العسس.

حاول المخروقون نفسياً ومعنوياً التقليل من الانتصار في حرب الموقع هذه، وحرب الموقع هي نعم: الانتصار في موقع، ومن ثمّ التكامل مع موقع، فمواقع أخرى منتصرة كما كتب انطونيو غرامشي، المناضل الإيطالي ضدّ الفاشية وصولاً إلى اصطفاف المواقع معاً لتشكل حرب جبهة واسعة.

ولكن، من جانبنا، لنا العبرة في ما يقوله العدو حيث الاشتباك الداخلي في أوساطه نقداً لسلطته الحالية التي تمثل أقصى العنجهية الصهيونية. هذا ناهيك عن استخدام معارضي سلطة العدو لهذه الهزيمة، في تعزيز رصيدها الانتخابي. وعليه، اعتقد محترفو الهزيمة من العرب بأنّ القدس انتصرت أم أنكروا ذلك، فلا قيمة لما يزعمون.

ولم يكن لدى نتنياهو سوى المتاجرة بقاتل المواطنين الأردنيين بدم بارد في عمّان، ليستقبل القاتل ويسأله السؤال الذي قُصد به تحقير النظام الأردني، وكأنّ هذا القاتل كان يقوم بعمل بطولي: «هل تحدّثت مع صديقتك»؟ وهو سلوك استفزازي تحقيري بمنتهى الصلف والصفاقة.

بعد انتصار الأقصى أو الانتصار للأقصى، لم تخجل أنظمة عربية وإسلامية كثيرة، من محاولة السرقة العلنية لشرف الموقف، لم يكن ذلك مدهشاً ولا مستغرباً، حيث الوقائع ظاهرة للعيان، ولكنها تكشف عن هشاشة البحث عن نصر ما، وسرقته بعد أن كانت هي نفسها في صف العدو بهذا الأسلوب أو ذاك!

في المقلب الآخر، كانت حرب الموقع تأخذ مجراها الشريف المشرّف في جرود عرسال في لبنان، حيث تتكاتف المقاومة والجيشان السوري واللبناني ونصف الدولة اللبنانية، للإجهاز على إرهابيّي النصرة بأسرع التوقعات وأقلّ التكاليف.

وكذا كان المقدسيّون وفلسطينيّو 1948 قد أهدوا نصر الأقصى للعرب والمسلمين، فإنّ المقاومة وسيّدها قد أهديا نصر عرسال لجميع اللبنانيين، وجميع المقاومين.

وأيضاً، إذا كان نصر القدس الجزئي، قد طعنته أكاذيب الأنظمة مكشوفة العورة، فإنّ انتصار عرسال طعنته الأنظمة نفسها، وقطاعات كثيرة من السياسيين في لبنان نفسه.

صحيح أنّ الأنظمة العربية التابعة تتواصل مع بعضها ومع الكيان الصهيوني، وتتمظهر جبهتها بلا مواربة، ولكن قوى المقاومة ودعمها الشعبي من القدس إلى عرسال إلى بيروت إلى دمشق، تتواصل على الأرض ميدانياً وروحياً.

ولعلّ هذا ما يؤكد لنا حقيقة، أن ّالمشترك العربي هو شعبي لا رسمي، وهذا ليس بالأمر البسيط، بل هو الأساس.

SECRET SAUDI WAR IN AL-AWAMIYAH- Bulldozers Reduce Awamia to Rubble

South Front

Secret Saudi War In Al-Awamiyah

Source: observers.france24.com

The British newspaper “the Independent” revealed several new details about the situation in the Al-Awamiyah town in the eastern region of Saudi Arabia.

The town has been under full siege by the Saudi Security Forces for three months, according to the report. Saudi security forces even even cut off electricity and water lines to the town.

Saudi security forces had stormed Al-Awamiyah after the Saudi government decided on May 10 to evacuate the residents of the town and to demolish the old part of it – Al-Moussawara district – under the pretext of developing the town.

The Saudi decision is believed to be a punishment for the town’s residents, who belong to the Shiite sect. Al-Awamiya is home for 30,000 Saudi Shiites. Al-Awamiya is also a birthplace of Shiite Imam Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, who had been leading widespread protests in Al-Awamiya town and the eastern region of Saudi Arabia against the Saudi government and called for reforms since 2011 before the Saudi authorities executed him on January 2, 2016.

The Saudi authorities have already demolished large parts of Al-Awamiyah. Only 3000-5000 civilians remain in the town. Some of them are anti-government armed activist, according to the Independent report.

25 people, including at least 12 civilians, have been killed since Saudi security forces began its attack on the town. Security forces have deployed snipers and armored vehicles in the town, which turned into a battlefield, according to the report.

“I was a peaceful protester, most of us in Awamiyah were, until the government decided to list us as wanted terrorists. All we did was maintain calls for reform. Because we were not afraid of the regime, they targeted the whole city,” an anti-government armed activist told the Independent.

“We will kill your father and throw his head between your legs,” Saudi forces allegedly told his daughter after raiding his home in Al-Awamiyah.

“We had no choice. Defending our lives and our women is a duty. Houses have been destroyed by bombs, heavy shooting, RPGs… everyone is a target,” the activist added.

The number of Shiites in Saudi Arabia is 2.25 million that makes up 15% of the Saudi population. Saudi Arabia’s oil-rich Eastern Region is the heartland of the Saudi Shiites. The Saudi Shiites suffer from the Saudi government’s persecution because Saudi Arabia’s key ideology is Wahhabism which is considered an anti-Shiite ideology.

When the Arab Spring started, the Saudi Shiites began demanding their rights, and the Saudi authorities responded wiith tougher measures against the country’s minority. However, Saudi Shiites have little ties to Iran. Furthermore, they support Saudi Arabia’s position on the Syrian crisis.

The Independent report indicates that the Saudi security operation in Al-Awamiyah may be one of the results of the US President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia. The operation began after the Islamic-American summit in Riyadh.

It seems that the Saudi government may have got a green light from the United States, which certainly wants to keep the Saudi oil-rich areas under control and away from any Iranian influence.

Saudi Crackdown: Bulldozers Reduce Awamia to Rubble, Attacking Residents Continues

Local Editor

Saudi military bulldozers almost razed Awamia to the ground amid the deadly crackdown on the besieged Shia town, forcing hundreds of its residents to flee or hand over their personal property to the authorities.

Saudi Crackdown: Bulldozers Reduce Awamia to Rubble, Attacking Residents Continues


The Middle East Eye news portal cited activists as saying that Saudi authorities resorted to compulsory evictions in and around the historic al-Mosawara district of Awamia.

The residents, according to the activists, have been driven out of their homes, while their property has been confiscated by private development firms.

The report also published an image showing a requisition order pinned to a house in the district of al-Shweikah, close to al-Mosawara, which was issued by a private company with the authorization of the so-called National Joint Counterterrorism Command [NJCC].

Reports coming out of the town said Saudi military forces have been firing randomly at homes and cars in Awamia, destroying or setting fire to several houses and shops, an injuring people on their way out of the area.

Amateur videos circulating on the Internet shows the city has been reduced to rubble, with activists saying those left inside are suffering from a lack of electricity, water, rubbish collection or fire services.

“There is a plan for forced displacement,” said Ameen Nemer, a Saudi activist originally from Awamiya. “It doesn’t matter where these people will end up.”

Awamia, located in the eastern Qatif region, has been under military lockdown since May, when Saudi troops began destroying al-Mosawara.

The Riyadh regime claims al-Mosawara has become a hideout for “militants,” who are behind attacks on security forces in Eastern Province, but locals and the United Nations say the regime is after erasing cultural heritage in the Shia town and redeveloping the area.

The Saudi military have martyred at least eight people in the town over the past days.

On Wednesday, Saudi police opened fire on a bus transporting people who were trying to flee the town, claiming the life of a civilian.

Palestinians have a legal right to armed struggle

caged but undaunted

**Originally published in Al Jazeera July 20. 2017. This is the unedited version with original title and links**

For Some, History is a Failed Recollection (Original Title)

Long ago, it was settled that resistance… even armed struggle… against a colonial occupation force is not just recognized under international law but specifically endorsed.

In accordance with international humanitarian law, wars of national liberation have been expressly embraced, through the adoption of Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions of 1949, as a protected and essential right of occupied people everywhere.

Article 1 (4) of Additional Protocol I provides that “international armed conflict” include those in which people are fighting against “colonial domination, alien occupation and against racist regimes in the exercise of their right of self-determination.”

Hezbollah Congratulates Palestinians: Only Resistance Path Can Liberate Occupied Land

Hezbollah flag

 July 27, 2017

Hezbollah congratulated on Thursday the Palestinian people on the great victory represented by obliging the Zionist enemy to cancel all the arbitrary measures it had taken in Al-Aqsa Mosque’s vicinity, noting that the Israelis aimed deeply at controlling this major Islamic symbol away from the Arabs and the Muslims.

In a statement, Hezbollah considered that this victory is the  fruit of the Palestinians’ steadfastness and bloody sacrifices made for the sake of protecting the sanctity Al-Aqsa from the Zionist desecration, adding that admitting the path of resistance is the only way to liberate the occupied land and regain the sanctities.

Hezbollah pointed out that the Palestinian uprising against the Zionist measures at Al-Aqsa Mosque is a shining torch which illuminates the path of the Umma that, according to the statement, has to provide the Palestinian people with all the forms of support.

‘Israel’ Removes More Aqsa Restrictions, Palestinians Rejoice

Local Editor

After days of anti-‘Israeli’ demonstrations, the Zionist entity started removing its freshly imposed restrictions on the holy Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East al-Quds.

 

‘Israel' Removes More Aqsa Restrictions, Palestinians Rejoice


In this respect, Palestinian Ma’an news agency cited eyewitnesses as saying that the apartheid regime removed the recently installed barriers, scaffoldings, high-tech cameras and metal detectors from at least one of the gates to the compound, prompting Palestinians to begin celebrating early on Thursday.

“For 12 days no one has slept, no one has had done anything except protesting ‘Israel’s’ move against the al-Aqsa Mosque,” said one of Palestinians celebrating the measure’s removal, while other set off firecrackers.

Palestinians had been protesting outside the compound since ‘Israeli’ occupation authorities installed metal detectors, turnstiles, and additional security cameras in the compound following a deadly shooting attack more than a week ago.

On July 14, three Palestinians carried out an operation against ‘Israeli forces at the Aqsa Mosque compound, killing two of them before being martyred.

Palestinian worshipers strongly condemned ‘Israel’s new restrictive measures at al-Aqsa Mosque, engaging in bitter clashes with ‘Israeli’ military forces.

The occupied Palestinian territories witnessed new tensions ever since ‘Israeli’ forces introduced restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds in August 2015.

More than 300 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of ‘Israeli’ forces in tensions since the beginning of October 2015.

The ‘Israeli’ occupation regime tried to change the demographic makeup of al-Quds over the past decades by constructing settlements, destroying historical sites and expelling the local Palestinian population.

Palestinians say the ‘Israeli’ measures are aimed at paving the way for the Judaization of the occupied city.

Sayyed Nasrallah Declares Major Victory in Arsal Battle, Offers It to All Lebanese

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announced the great and massive victory in the battle against the takfiri terrorist Al-Nusral Front in Arsal outskirts.

At the beginning of his televised speech, Sayyed Nasrallah chose to praise the steadfastness of the Palestinian people in face of the “Israeli” continuous aggression against Al-Aqsa Holy Mosque.

“The resistance salutes and hails the people of Al-Quds, the West Bank and all Palestinians, who have flocked to the Old City in defense of al-Aqsa and have managed to impose a new victory through forcing the enemy to remove its new measures, particularly the electronic gates This is a new experience of the resistance,” he said.

His Eminence further saluted Yemeni Ansarullah Leader Sayyed Abdul Malek Al-Houthi for his Initiative and readiness to be in service of the Islamic Resistance in any coming war with the “Israeli” enemy.

In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that the Army Day will be marked in a few days, on August 1. “On this occasion I salute the army’s command, officers, soldiers, captives and martyrs. It is also the national day of the Syrian Arab Army and I also salute its command.”

Meanwhile, he announced that he isn’t to comments on US President Donald Trump’s statement as he met Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri the day before so the he won’t embarrass the Lebanese delegation.

“We have time in the future to talk about the issue,” His Eminence mentioned.

Moving on to the subject of the speech, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the goal of the battle was to get the militants out of the area controlled by Al- Nasra Front, whether in Flita or Arsal outskirts.

“This is a rightful battle. We have a clear and doubtless right and anyone who is hesitant can start with Hermel, al-Qaa, al-Fakha, Ras Baalbek, Al-Lboah and Baalbek villages and all of the Beqaa. Ask the people who used to have the rockets rain down on them . Let them ask in the areas that suffered martyrs from car bomb attacks and the areas which were on the verge of being targeted,” he confirmed.

According to His Eminence, “this operation has been postponed since 2015 as the region formed a platform for the terrorists.”

“What led to this timing is what was discovered in the last times that the outskirts were transformed,” he explained, noting that “Booby trapped cars and belts were being formed there. However, all the terror cells in Lebanon were busted, thanks to the efforts of the Lebanese Army and security services.”

As Sayyed Nasrallah admitted that there is a difference in attitudes over this battle, he announce Hezbollah’s respect to such difference. “However, we confirm that Iran has nothing to do with it and we contacted with the Syrian leadership for cooperation.”

He revealed that the Resistance called the Syrian leadership and asked them for their help in this area because they had priorities elsewhere. “This is an internal decision.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also said that “the timing of the battle has nothing to do with regional or Arab developments.”

“Whoever has the slightest military knowledge would know that such a decision cannot be taken days before the battle, which needed preparation and is not linked to any political developments…We had two choices: either to start before or after Ramadan but it could have extended into it so we decided after Ramadan.”

Explaining the type of the battle, His Eminence underscored that the area of the battle is approximately 100 km2, which was controlled by Al-Nusra Front. “This region is known for its high mountains, valleys, and barrens. Fighting in this battle is of one  most difficult types.”

“In the geographical aspect,  people can sit on the TV and see the area where the battle took place. This was not desert a field it is a mountainous area. Some peaks reach 2,000 meters it is hard,” he elaborated, noting that “In these hills, there is an enemy in a defensive position and they are fortified especially since they have spent years in these mountains.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “We are in front of  a very large military and field victory. it has actually been achieved in the first two days of the battle with the lowest cost.

He also unveiled that  battle in Flitah  outskirts was common with the Syrian army and we fought shoulder to shoulder and martyrs fell in this goal.

Praising the Lebanese Army’s role in achieving this victory, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that what the Lebanese Army did in Arsal was essential factor in achieving this victory.

In this context, His Eminence revealed that the Lebanese Army closed the entire area so no one was allowed to traverse the outskirts of Arsal due to the Army efforts, they use to stop any attempt from militants. “Regardless of this the Lebanese Army said that it hit militant targets in the area so the militants felt unsafe. The Army provided to Arsal, which is special because it was closest to the front, lines, an atmosphere of relaxation int her town.”

Meanwhile, the Resistance Leader went on to say that “there was a rational act by Saray Ahl Sham, which made it easier for them to withdraw to the displaced peoples’ cams and to stay with their families. They acted rationally and we have an obligation with them and we are ready to coordinate with the Syrian state about their situation. They understood that this battle had no [chance of success for them] but the door was open for a settlement against their blood and ours and they took the decision the next day to withdraw from the front lines towards the camps. They took responsibility of taking care of their kin and families in the camps. The camps are in Wadi Malahi and Wadi Hamayed.”

In contrast, Sayyed Nasrallah viewed that Al-Nusra Front leaders rejected  all our previous appeals and their leaders have acted with arrogance.

In a message to Al-Nusra terrorists, he said: “We were serious in this issue and it was the best and most appropriate decision … the sacrifices of the youth … are more important than any other considerations and we were serious but Al-Nusra acted … irresponsible … and they could have thought in their wrong calculations that this is a physiological war and did not expect it to happen.”

“Al-Nusra is losing ground and operations room and headquarters, leaving dead and confusion. We think their insistence on not listening to our calls was wrong. They have left Flita outskirts they have lost most of the area in the Arsal outskirts and they only have a few kilometers [left]. They are in a tight place: Hezbollah is fighting and still offering a settlement, on the other side is Lebanese Army preventing their entry into Arsal and the third is Daesh who will not accept them or welcome expect if they disgrace themselves to them.”

According to Sayyed Nasrallah, “Despite the ferocity of the battle, the town of Arsal remained safe thanks to the Lebanese army and there was a keenness not to commit any mistake.”

Moreover, he said that “the next day after the battle near Arsal we are ready to hand over area to the Lebanese Army.”

The Resistance Leader assured that compromising the safety of the people of Arsal is off limits under any consideration even in the battle.

“What has been left of Al-Nusra leaders and militants are now surrounded in a small area and this area is very close to the refugee camps and they are trying to take shelter in these camps which is why this work should be very specific. Even some weapons we were using before we won’t use now or we will use them with extreme caution because we don’t want to comprise the refugees given the small areas of operations. Progress in Arsal field is to continue and I ask the Mujahideen to progress in a studied manner.”

He also revealed that the serious negotiations with Al-Nusra only began yesterday [Tuesday] and Hezbollah, the Lebanese and Syrian state must agree on terms. “At the end of the day, it is something that the Lebanese state, the Syrian state, and Hezbollah have to accept in the bargaining with Al- Nusra.”

“The field developments do not grant Nusra the upper hand in the negotiations,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, stressing that “the families of the militants  will always remain safe.

To everyone listening in the Arab and Islamic world , the Resistance Leader summed  up to say that we are facing a massive victory … and it will be

“We are now ahead of a great victory. The leadership of A-Nusra in Idlib have to realize Nusra’s status in the field does not put it in a place that would allow it to impose conditions. We are not directly concerned in the negotiation – This is what is happening and this is where we are going: achieving the goals and accomplishing the mission.The military page will be finalized and this victory achieved by our Mujahedeen, our martyrs and our wounded will be handed  to all the Lebanese and all the peoples of the region suffering from Takfiri terrorism.”

He, meanwhile, said: “There are two tracks – combat and negotiations – and the two tracks are currently being pursued and we’re trying to be patient in order to reach the needed result.”

As His Eminence offered such great victory to Muslim and Christian sects, he announced that  Hezbollah did its duty and expects anyone to thank it for its Resistance. “ For everyone who aided us by support, words, prayers, blood donation…I thank you all.”

With eyes full of tears, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a sentimental message to the Resistance martyrs, wounded and their families.

“I salute all those who offered sacrifices with martyrs and wounded. To the Mujahedeen and their families, I say that I witness the Hussein, Abbas and Zainab in you. You  are the heirs of the Imams. The women of Hezbollah fighters today reminded me of the words of our lady Zineb [the Prophet’s daughter] after the battle of Karbala] who said I only saw good deeds [of Allah to us]. With you, Allah emancipated us from humiliation. [It was] the humiliation of fear, defeat, and contempt.”
