US Envoy Holds Image of Al-Quds without Al-Aqsa Mosque, Dome of the Rock!

 May 23, 2018

Friedman Quds image

US Ambassador to the Zionist entity David Friedman was photographed Tuesday holding an aerial image of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) bearing a simulation of the so-called “Third Temple” instead of the Al-Aqsa holy mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

First reported on the ultra-Orthodox news site Kikar Hashabat, the photo of Friedman holding the poster was taken during a tour of Bnei Brak held by the Achiya organization, which aids Israeli children who suffer from learning disabilities, Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported.

A statement issued by the embassy later claimed that Friedman “received the photo from one of the organization’s employees and “was not aware of the image thrust in front of him when the photo was taken.”

According to the statement, Friedmen was “deeply disappointed that anyone would take advantage of his visit to Bnei Brak to create controversy.”

The embassy which has been recently relocated from Tel Aviv to Al-Quds in a provocative move by Washington, said that the US policy “is absolutely clear: we support the status quo on the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount.”

For its part, Achiya has issued an apology to Friedman and the embassy, saying a staff member on its behalf presented the picture to the ambassador, who “was unaware of its content,” the Israeli daily reported.

Neither East Nor West: A One Palestinian Palestine

When facts get blurry, returning to history can be useful. The colonialization of Palestine and its occupation by “Israeli” forces is not a saga based on which Palestinian grandparents make up stories to tell the new generations. In fact, these grandparents were exiled from their homeland, Palestine, where the “Israeli” apartheid entity was established and its immigrants came to become the settlers of these occupied lands.

Al-Quds

After more than 69 years to the plight of the Palestinians, and the day when the “Israelis” attacked Palestinians and committed the infamous Deir Yassin Massacre, US president Donald Trump announces his decision of moving the US embassy to Occupied Al-Quds [Jerusalem] and simply declares that Al-Quds to be the capital of the occupying apartheid regime. At least since the 1967 war, the United States has been “Israel’s” strongest advocate.
A Quick Historical Review

Al-Quds, the capital of Palestine, is an Arab and Muslim small country in the Asian continent that has a very sensitive strategic location owing to its history, geography, and the fact that it is the cradle of different civilizations and religions.

For Muslims, Al-Quds was the first qibla, before the Kaaba in Mecca. This spot was the place from which Islam’s Prophet Muhammad proceeded on his journey, described as the ascension to heaven in Islamic literature. It is also the place in which Jesus called for Christianity, shared the Last Supper with his disciples. Historically speaking, Al-Quds has generally been the site for Muslim pilgrimage, prayer, study or residence. Al-Aqsa Mosque was a particular seat of learning.

This city, where people from the different faiths lived together, became witness to the worst crimes committed by the “Israeli” apartheid entity which was established in 1948 by virtue of the Balfour agreement, which was set up by Britain in the course of World War I. The roots of the idea of establishing an “Israeli” apartheid entity goes back to decades earlier. In 1896, Theodor Herzl, a Jewish journalist living in Austria-Hungary, published the foundational text of political Zionism, Der Judenstaat [“The Jews’ State” or “The State of the Jews”], in which he asserted that the only solution to the “Jewish Question” in Europe was the establishment of a state for the Jews.

It is worth mentioning that in 1916, when Palestine was still under the rule of the Ottoman Empire, the Jews back then were not Zionists, and they constituted 3 per cent of the population who lived side by side with people of other faiths. It is worth noting here that the people of Palestine differentiate between Judaism and Zionism. The latter is not a faith, but rather a political phenomenon with expansionist, racist and colonialist aims that under the cover of the Jewish religion takes on a religious appearance and tries to pursue its goals as the savior of the Jewish people.

Muslims represented the majority of the population back then, followed by the Christians.

If we are to overview the entire history of the region, the story becomes endless. But the guidelines provided above present a few of the links that make up a full chain; the bigger picture.

Palestine and the Iranian Revolution

In 1979, a dramatic change took place in the Asian continent. A popular movement led by Imam Ruhollah Khomeini was initiated in Iran and an Islamic Republic was established. Iran no longer was a client to the United States of America. The Asian country also no longer supported what it declared to be an occupation, and an apartheid regime.

For three decades before the Islamic revolution, between “Israel’s” illegal establishment in 1948 and Iran’s revolution in 1979, the two countries had close relations based on common strategic interests. Iran became an important source of oil for “Israel”, and “Israel” became an important source of weapons for Iran. It has been reported that thousands of “Israeli” businessmen and technical experts aided Iranian development projects.

Even before the revolution, Ayatollah Imam Khomeini paid a great deal of attention to al-Quds, the holy Aqsa mosque, and the Palestinian cause.

As early as 1968, Ayatollah Imam Khomeini addressed the Palestinian cause in his struggle. The ideas behind the revolution inspired the slogan “Neither East, nor West – Islamic Republic!”

“My proposal for establishing an Islamic government does not mean a return to the past. I am strongly for civilization and progress”, said Ayatollah Imam Khomeini in January 1979. By that, he meant that Iran does not have to be under the impact and rule of the communist thought at that time represented by the Soviet Union, nor by the capitalist ideology that was raised as the only method of success by the US. Yes, rejecting both the influence of capitalism and communism, Iran decided to become independent and different. For Imam Khomeini, “Neither East Nor West” was a proposal that proves the freedom from subjugation and guarantees success in creating an independent strong identity and defending rights.

For Ayatollah Imam Khomeini, who descended from the Islamic Shia school of thought, the oppressed and the oppressors was a notion that was the focus of his attention. It was a must to support the oppressed, and not only in defend Islamic sanctities. It was the spirit of the revolution that rose from the people with Ayatollah Imam Khomeini’s leadership to support the oppressed across the world in order to realize a just cause.

But of course, Palestine was of vital importance owing to its Islamic identity. Deciding to establish an “Iran” with an independent Islamic identity, Iran’s Ayatollah Imam Khomeini stressed throughout his discourses that Palestine is a central cause to the Muslims.

In an interview when in exile in Iraq’s Najaf city during the early 60s, he said

“When you realize that the blood of your innocent brothers and sisters are shed in the holy land of Palestine and when you notice that our territories have been occupied, and our homes are demolished at the hands of the Zionist criminals, under such circumstances there is no other course left but continuing of jihad. It is incumbent upon every Muslim to extend his material and spiritual aids in this lofty struggle.”

In remarks at a meeting with a group of Palestinians and Bishop Cappucci on 2 April 1979, Ayatollah Imam Khomeini said

“For many years now, perhaps twenty years, I have repeatedly aired my views on Palestine and “Israel”, and I will say again: We condemn “Israel”. “Israel” is an usurper. The land it has taken, it has taken unlawfully. Al-Quds must be freed and “Israel” driven out. The Arab governments must unite and drive “Israel” out of their lands and sever the hands of the colonizers.”

In 1979 and shortly after the revolution, Ayatollah Imam Khomeini designated the last Friday of the holy Islamic month of Ramadan as a new national holiday – al-Quds Day– to “proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine.”

Ayatollah Imam Khomeini always considered that returning to Islam and uniting is a prerequisite to save Palestine and block Zionism’s expansionist plans. Islamic differences were never an issue for Ayatollah Imam Khomeini, in fact he always called on Muslims to put their differences aside and seek unity.

Imam Khomieni, addressing the Muslims altogether stressed that the apartheid regime will not stop at a certain end, noting

“I have continuously spoken about “Israel” and its crimes in my sermons and writings, and have brought to the notice of the Muslims that “Israel” is a cancerous tumor in a corner of the Islamic countries which will not be satisfied with Al-Quds and the other places. No, they (the Zionists) intend to move on. They are the followers of America’s policy and America does not simply aspire after one place . . . the Muslims must awaken.”

Extracting of the Ashura philosophy in Islam, Ayatollah Imam Khomeini noted in another sermon

“Truth will defeat the satanic and tyrannical forces. Your troubles and suffering are not new to Islam and the Muslims, the forces of tyranny have always opposed Islam and fought with the Muslims.”

While addressing the people, he pointed out to the different dimensions of the war on Palestine and the Muslims, and explaining at the time the notion of the “colonialization of the mind” and how it is used to manipulate the people of the region as means to weaken them.

“Those who seek to rule over these countries (the imperialists) have, through the distorted propaganda they have circulated over the past few hundred years and the influence they have achieved in the universities and the centers which educate the sons of Muslims, made the Muslims lose hope in themselves, they have made them lose themselves. The Muslims must strive to find their greatness.”

In the Last Message, The Political and Divine Will of His Holiness the Ayatollah Imam Khomeini, reiterated that the international Zionism does not stop short of any crime to achieve its base and greedy desires, crimes that the tongue and pen are ashamed to utter or write.”

Iran Maintains Position; Palestine Central Cause 

After the passing away of Ayatollah Imam Khomeini, the pro-Palestinian discourse did not stop. It is true that the two countries do not share the same borders, and they come from different Islamic schools of thought, and they speak two different languages, but Ayatollah Imam Khomeini had demonstrated that nothing can impede Iran from standing by Palestine and the Palestinians. It is Islamic values and ethics that form the driving force behind the Iranian support, and true values do not die in general.

In fact, the speeches of His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, leader of the Islamic Revolution, are a continuation to that same identity that supports the Palestinian cause. From the Islamic Republic’s point of view, it is and has always been a confrontation against oppression and distortion.

In all his discourses, Ayatollah Khamenei describes unity as the only way to resist the aggression of the enemies of Islam. He explains that “unity is not the same as adopting identical views. On the contrary, it means that people with various tendencies must move shoulder to shoulder and consider national interests as preferable to everything else, especially their own interests. They must not allow selfishness enter political and social arenas.”

Pointing out to the importance of confronting the “Israeli” apartheid regime and realizing the liberation of Palestine, Ayatollah Khamenei noted in one of his speeches that “pinning hopes on the compromise process and begging the Zionist enemy for peace. This option will only help “Israel” to humiliate the Palestinians and dictate its demands to them. This is what we have already witnessed.”

Also, stressing the idea of colonialization and usurping of property and land, Ayatollah Khamenei highlighted in a ceremony that “Palestinians are by no means going to live outside their own country forever. Or if they are living inside the country, they are never going to be an oppressed minority forever, making room for the invading outsiders to stay in their country.”

Just like Ayatollah Imam Khomeini, Ayatollah Khamenei time and again reassures that Iran’s position on the issue of Palestine is crystal clear.

“Our position on the issue of Palestine is also clear. We believe that all Palestinian lands belong to the Palestinians. Those who tried to wipe Palestine off the map of the world made a mistake. Such a thing will not happen. Palestine will survive. The usurpers have occupied Palestine for a few decades, but there is no doubt that Palestinian lands will be restored to the people of Palestine and to the world of Islam.”

The “Israeli” soldiers have carried out all sorts of crimes against the Palestinians; from killing the people, destroying their homes and farms and arresting and torturing men and women and even their children, to humiliating and insulting that nation and trying to destroy it, to building illegal settlements and attacking the Palestinian refugees in the camps inside Palestine.

Al-Quds: Neither East nor West

Very recently, Ayatollah Khamenei said in comments on the US move to declare Al-Quds as capital of the “Israeli” apartheid regime “Today, the issue of Palestine is at the top of the political issues of the world of Islam and the Islamic Ummah. Everyone is responsible towards defending Palestine, and the freedom of Palestine and the Palestinian nation. Everyone is responsible towards fighting and working to that end.”

He pointed out to the “Israeli” regime and the US’s desperation

“The enemy is desperate in this regard. You should know this. When they claim that they want to declare al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime, this is a sign of their desperation and incapability. Their hands are tied on the issue of Palestine. Without a doubt, by doing so, they will receive a harsher blow and the world of Islam will stand up against them.”

Today, Iran stands strong in face of the US decision, and voices support to the Palestinians as well as urges the international community to act. Iran does not stand alone but is supported by regional players both state and non-state actors. For instance, as Lebanon’s Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah clearly stated that the resistance stands with utmost readiness to defend al-Aqsa mosque and support the Palestinian brethren, Turkey’s Erdogan pointed out that al-Quds is a “red line” for Muslims who will not accept any aggression on its Islamic sanctuaries, and said that what “Israel” is doing against Palestinians wolf does not do against the sheep.

Today, Iran reiterates “neither East, nor West” but an independent Palestinian Palestine that has the right to preserve its people, land and sanctities. No East Al-Quds and no West, but a one Palestinian al-Quds acknowledged as the capital of Palestine and its native people.

Either America or Al-Quds إما أميركا… وإما القدس!

Either America or Al-Quds

al-Quds

Ibrahim Al-Amin

What Donald Trump did yesterday might be the best opportunity to stabilize the situation originating from the settlement colonial project called “Israel”. Yesterday, dissolutely and rudely, America has told us – despite the will of some of its allies and partners in the colonial project – what it has been telling us throughout the ages and eras that it is the source of our oppression, misery and injustice.

This means, we will not recover an inch of Palestine unless we declared an all-out war against it and work to turn its life into hell, its banner into a slogan of shame, and its army into a mobile monster in the world. Isn’t it time for the Arabs to realize that America, in short, is the origin of scourge and evil? As for “Israel”, let us leave it aside. Whatever is said about its “power, superiority and preparation”, it is but an American-British colony that cannot live one day without the protection, care and blind support of the West.

This colonial West, and specifically the United States of America, is the reason for the existence of the usurper entity. All its efforts forcibly extend “Israel’s” artificial existence, which is contrary to truth and logic and the movement of history, as it waits for its definite end.

This is the lesson the arsonist at the White House is teaching the Arab people today. Some Arab rulers have not understood for seventy years that “Israel” is nothing without the protection of the West and will not exist without America’s cover and support. “Israel” is no longer the source of fear and anxiety, after the destruction of its military legend by the popular resistance in Lebanon and Palestine. Nothing that it does alone can keep it alive, not even for one hour.

Today, the moment when someone amongst us Arabs proclaims the full submission to America under the banner of “peace” is nothing more than subordination and surrender. At the moment when the free world stands helpless and idly in the face of the cowboy’s madness, we have nothing left but to stand up for our dignity. We have to address the root of the problem and not its symptoms. We have no choice but to raise the slogan, voice, and fists as one and shout: “Death to America!” We have to declare an all-out war on America and its interests everywhere.

This move was necessary, even though it was expected a short while ago. This symbolic move for the Arabs and Muslims which is extremely dangerous and terrible and which Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri called “a new Balfour Declaration” was necessary for us to make sure that our real battle was with America before “Israel”; the America which was founded – like “Israel” – on the massacre and the destruction of an entire civilization, where the “Paradise of Freedom” was built on the ruins [of these civilizations]; America, which never flourished except through the exploitation of the world, the vulnerable people, and through colonial wars; America that covered up and covers up all of “Israel’s” crimes, massacres, and racist and settlement policies. It is useless to fight “Israel” and leave it [America]. Perhaps some Arabs need this extra lesson, rather this shock, this earthquake, giving Al-Quds to the invaders, so that they know that betting on America is a form of absurdity, suicide or conscious betrayal. Precisely today, all Arabs have to choose: either America or Al-Quds!

Whoever chooses Al-Quds must know that the battle requires an alliance with everyone who stands up to America. He has to understand that inciting people against America means inviting them to oppose and fight it by all means and reject all that comes from it, even if it comes wrapped in the delusions of the solution or the desired antidote.

Those who choose to belong to and defend Al-Quds must work unceasingly, with all their might, to kill every American soldier outside his country’s borders, to occupy, burn or destroy America’s embassies all over the world. Let us expel from our country every American employee, diplomat, politician or others, and everyone who receives a salary from the US government. Let us face their fake democracy, cut off all the projects of their mercenaries in our countries and the world that serve suspicious agendas that only serve “Israel”, behind false slogans about “human rights, development and progress”.

Those who choose Al-Quds must choose the time of total resistance, which obligates us to do something that is not simple, but possible, in order to abandon everything that is related to them. Those who choose Al-Quds must work to make the American people aware that their responsibility is great and that they will pay the price of the policies of the ones they chose to govern their country.

It is true that it is a long and arduous process, but it is a compulsory path for anyone who wants to get rid of “Israel’s” nightmare and its arrogant servants sitting on the throne of power in our country – the perpetrators of legitimacy, justice and freedom. What the rulers of the kingdoms of oppression did in the Arabian Gulf, and before them governments in the Mashriq [the region of the Arab world to the east of Egypt] and North Africa, would not have been possible if it hadn’t been for our silence to their conspiracy, the submission of some of us, accepting this and promoting the culture of surrender.

Today, Donald Trump opens the door to a new opportunity for the resistance movement in Palestine and the Arab world. “He is helping us” – with thanks – to redirect attention to the harsh truth, which is America’s direct influence or through “Israel” is the only purpose that is supposed to be confronted and to turn the table over the heads of its collaborators.

أي أننا لن نسترجع شبراً من فلسطين إلا إذا أعلنّا حرباً شاملة عليها، وإذا عملنا على تحويل حياتها إلى جحيم، ورايتها إلى شعار العار، وجيشها إلى وحش متنقل في العالم. أما آنَ أن يعي العرب أن أميركا، باختصار، هي أصل البلاء وأصل الشر؟ أما إسرائيل، فلنتركها جانباً، إذ مهما قيل عن «قوّتها وتفوقها وتحضّرها»، فليست سوى مستعمرة أميركية – بريطانية، لا يمكن أن تعيش يوماً واحداً بلا حماية الغرب، ورعايته، ودعمه الأعمى.

هذا الغرب الاستعماري، وتحديداً الولايات المتحدة الأميركيّة، هو علّة وجود الكيان الغاصب، وكل ما يبذله من جهود، يمدّد قسراً وجود إسرائيل الاصطناعي، المخالف للحق وللمنطق، ولحركة التاريخ، في انتظار أن تنتهي إلى حتفها الأكيد.

لم يعد أمامنا سوى رفع الشعار
والقبضات والهتاف الواحد: الموت لأمريكا!

هذا هو الدرس الذي يلقنه اليوم للشعوب العربيّة، مشعل الحرائق المعتوه في البيت الأبيض. بعض الحكام العرب الذين لم يفهموا منذ سبعين عاماً، أن «إسرائيل» هذه، ليست شيئاً من دون حماية الغرب… ولن يكون لها وجود من دون غطاء أميركا ودعمها. «إسرائيل» هذه، لم تعد مصدر الخوف والقلق، بعد تحطّم أسطورتها العسكريّة على صخرة المقاومة الشعبيّة في لبنان وفلسطين… وكل ما يمكن أن تقوم به، وحدها، لا يستطيع أن يبقيها، ولو لساعة واحدة، على قيد الحياة.

اليوم، في اللحظة التي يطلع بيننا، نحن العرب، من يعلن الخضوع الكامل لأميركا، تحت راية «سلام» ليس إلا تبعيّة واستسلاماً… وفي اللحظة التي يقف فيها «العالم الحرّ»، عاجزاً ومكتوف اليدين، أمام جنون الكاوبوي، لم يعد أمامنا سوى أن ننتفض لكرامتنا، أن نذهب إلى معالجة جذر المشكلة لا عوارضها. لم يعد أمامنا من خيار، سوى أن نرفع الشعار والصوت والقبضات والهتاف الواحد: «الموت لأمريكا»! أن نعلن الحرب الشاملة على أميركا ومصالحها في كل مكان.

كان لا بد من هذه الخطوة، وإن كانت متوقّعة من زمن غير قصير، هذه الخطوة العالية الرمزيّة بالنسبة إلى العرب والمسلمين، البالغة الخطورة والفظاعة، التي نعتها الرئيس نبيه برّي بـ «وعد بلفور جديد»… كان لا بدّ منها لنتأكد من أن معركتنا الحقيقية هي مع أميركا قبل إسرائيل. أميركا التي تأسست مثل إسرائيل على المجزرة، وعلى إبادة حضارة كاملة لتبني على أنقاضها «جنّة الحريّة». أميركا التي لم تزدهر يوماً إلا عبر استغلال العالم، والشعوب المستضعفة، وعبر الحروب الاستعماريّة. أميركا التي غطّت وتغطّي على كل جرائم إسرائيل، ومجازرها، وسياساتها العنصريّة والاستيطانيّة… لا يجدي أن نحارب إسرائيل ونتركها. وربما كان بعض العرب يحتاج إلى هذا الدرس الإضافي، بل قل هذه الصدمة، هذا الزلزال، إهداء القدس إلى الغزاة، حتى يعرف أن الرهان على أميركا ضرب من ضروب العبث أو الانتحار أو الخيانة الواعية. اليوم تحديداً، بات على كل العرب أن يختاروا: فإما أميركا وإما القدس!

إنّ من يختار القدس، عليه أن يعلم أن المعركة تتطلب التحالف مع كل من يقف في مواجهة أميركا. وعليه أن يعي، أن تحريض الناس على أميركا، يعني دعوته إلى معارضتها ومقاتلتها والانتفاض عليها بكل الوسائل. ورفض كل ما يأتي منها، حتى ولو كان مغلفاً بأوهام الحل، أو الترياق المنشود.

إنّ من يختار الانتماء إلى القدس والدفاع عنها، عليه العمل من دون توقف، وبكل ما أوتي من قوة، لقتل كل جندي اميركي خارج حدود بلاده، ولاحتلال سفارات أميركا في كل العالم أو إحراقها وتدميرها. لنطرد من بلادنا كل موظف أميركي، دبلوماسي أو سياسي أو خلافه. وكل من يتقاضى راتباً من الحكومة الأميركية. لنواجه ديموقراطيتهم الزائفة، نقطع السبل أمام كل مشاريع مرتزقتهم المنتشرين في بلادنا والعالم، في خدمة أجندات مشبوهة لا تخدم إلا إسرائيل، خلف شعارات مزيّفة عن «حقوق الإنسان والتنمية والتقدم».

إنّ من يختار القدس، عليه أن يختار زمن المقاومة الشاملة، التي تلزمنا بعملية ليست بسيطة، لكنها ممكنة، من أجل التخلي عن كل ما له صلة بهم. ومن يختار القدس، عليه العمل على إشعار الشعب الأميركي بأن مسؤوليته باتت عظيمة، وأنه سيكون من يدفع ثمن سياسات من يختارهم لحكم بلاده.

صحيح أنها عملية شاقة وطويلة، لكنها مسار إلزامي لكل من يريد التخلص من كابوس إسرائيل، ومن خدمها الأذلاء المتربّعين على عروش السلطة في بلادنا، مغتصبي الشرعية والعدالة والحريّة. وما فعله حكام ممالك القهر في الخليج العربي، وقبلهم حكومات في المشرق وشمالي إفريقيا، لم يكن ممكناً لولا صمتنا عن تآمرهم، ولولا خنوع بعضنا، وقبول هذا البعض، بل الترويج، لثقافة الاستسلام.

اليوم، يفتح دونالد ترامب الباب أمام فرصة جديدة لتيار المقاومة في فلسطين والعالم العربي. «يساعدنا» مشكوراً على إعادة توجيه الأنظار صوب الحقيقة القاسية، وهي أن نفوذ أميركا المباشر أو من خلال إسرائيل، هو الهدف الوحيد المفترضة مواجهته، وقلب الطاولة على رؤوس المتعاونين معه.

HASAN NASRALLAH: HEZBOLLAH IS MAKING HISTORY OF ENTIRE REGION

Hasan Nasrallah: Hezbollah Is Making History Of Entire Region

On September 12, Hezbollah leader Hasan Nasrallah said at a religious event that Hezbollah is “making the history of the region, not only the history of Lebanon”, according to the Lebanese al-Akhbar newspaper.

At the same event, he announced that Syria and its allies have won the war in Syria, according to the Lebanese al-Akhbar newspaper.

We have won in the war [in Syria], what remains are scattered battles,” Nasrallah said at the event.

Moreover, Nasrallah added that the Syrian opposition had failed to achieve anything, and now they want to negotiate to get some benefits. Nasrallah also said that the war on ISIS was harder and more dangerous than the war with Israel in 2006.

Since 2011 we knew that what was going on is a great conspiracy, and that there is a US-Israeli-Qatari-Saudi project that aims to eliminate the resistance and end the Palestinian cause,” Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah also revealed that at the beginning of the crisis in Syria he visited Iran and met with Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei to warn him from what is going on in Syria.

“Back then, everyone was convinced that the [Syrian] regime will fall after two or three months. We explained our view of the enemy project for him [Khamenei], and that if we didn’t fight in Damascus we will fight in Hermel, Baalbek, al-Dahieh, Ghazieh, the Western Beqaa and the South [of Lebanon] … The leader [Khamenei] agreed and continue: not only in these areas but also in Kerman and Khuzestan and Tehran … and he said [Khamenei]: this front has several axis: Iran axis, Lebanon axis and Syria axis and the leader of this axis, Bashar al-Assad… We should work for him to win and he will win,” Nasrallah said about his meeting with Khamenei.

Furthermore, Nasrallah revealed that after a year or two of the crisis Saudi Arabia told al-Assad that if Syria announce cutting its ties with Iran and Hezbollah in a press conference, the crisis will be over.

Nasrallah also said that Hezbollah warned its friends in Iraq that if they didn’t fight ISIS and it captured Deir Ezzor it will enter Iraq. Hezbollah prediction were indeed accurate and ISIS did enter Iraq because the Iraqis didn’t fight ISIS inside Syria back then.

This speech can be considered the most important speech by Nasrallah during 2017. As the speech reveals that the Syrian crisis in 2011-2012 was in reality moved by the political disagreement in the region, not by the will of the Syrian people.

Pro-Resistance Activists to Zionists: “If You Think about It, We’ll Wipe You out!”

A new front has been opened this week between the Zionist entity and pro-Lebanese resistance activists, but this time on social media.

Hezbollah Military Media Center launched a hashtag campaign dubbed: “If you (just) think about it (war against Lebanon), we’ll wipe you out,” with Hebrew subtitles, in response to an earlier message delivered by Israeli occupation military spokesman to the Arab press, Maj.Avichai Adraee.

The Israeli spokesman published on his account on social media (both Facebook and Twitter) a picture of himself holding a sign with Arabic words saying “If you dare, we will surprise you.”

In an another post, Adraee said: “They said ‘If You revert, We Too Will Revert,’ we say: ‘If you dare, we will surprise you,’” referring to the name of operation launched by Hezbollah against ISIL terrorists in Syria’s Qalamoun countryside.

The hashtag created by Hezbollah Military Media Center went viral on social media, with hundreds of pro-resistance activists used it, posting photos that portray the Israeli failure in Lebanon.
