المساران «الإسرائيلي» والفلسطيني

مارس 18, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– قبل أيام على صواريخ تل أبيب وعملية سلفيت النوعية البطولية، خرج أحد المستوطنين في تسجيل من باحة المسجد الأقصى يصف الفلسطينيين بالجبن، باعتبارهم مصنوعين من سكر ولم يخرجوا إلى المسجد الأقصى بسبب المطر خشية الذوبان، وبعد أيام قليلة كان المصنوعون من سكر يقصفون بصواريخ تتخطّى القبة الحديدة وتسقط في تل أبيب، وبعدها بأيام يقوم شاب فلسطيني بطعن جندي صهيوني وتجريده من سلاحه، وإطلاق النار بواسطة هذا السلاح على مجموعة من الجنود فيقتل ثلاثة منهم ويتوارى. ويظهر المساران الفلسطيني والإسرائيلي متعاكسين، يتبادلان الحال العربية الإسرائيلية قبل عقود، يوم كان الكلام الكبير للعرب والفعل الكبير للإسرائيليين، ليبدو اليوم أن الكلام الكبير للإسرائيليين حكاماً ومستوطنين، بينما الأفعال الكبيرة للفلسطينيين.

– خلال العقدين الماضيين، ومنذ العام 2000 سلك المساران الفلسطيني والإسرائيلي اتجاهين متعاكسين، فمنذ إجبار «إسرائيل» على الانسحاب دون مقابل أو تفاوض من جنوب لبنان، ومقابلها اندلاع انتفاضة المسجد الأقصى، بدأ المسار التصاعدي لحساب الفلسطينيين، ومقابله مسار الانحدار الإسرائيلي، وتلاها تحرير غزة عام 2005 والفشل الإسرائيلي في حرب تموز 2006، وها نحن اليوم في مرحلة ما بعد الفشل الدولي والإقليمي الذي كانت «إسرائيل» جزءاً عضوياً منه في الحرب على سورية، وتنامي قدرات محور المقاومة، ذهبت «إسرائيل» نحو تصعيد فلسفة الجدار، رغم كل الصراخ عن القدرة على خوض الحروب، فشكل الإعلان عن دولة يهودية تعبيراً عن فلسفة الجدار، ومثله نقل السفارة الأميركية إلى القدس، إعلاناً عن العجز على السير في أي مشروع تفاوضي نحو تسوية سياسية يعادل العجز عن خوض الحروب، ولو رآه البعض علامة قوة فهو ليس إلا دليل ضعف.

– رغم الانقسام الفصائلي الحاد يبدو الفلسطينيون أقرب سياسياً لبعضهم في الإجماع على رفض التفاوض والدور الأميركي ومشروع صفقة القرن، بصورة لم يسبق أن شكل الموقف من التفاوض ومن نسخ التسوية المعروضة ومن العلاقة مع واشنطن، أسباباً دائمة للانقسام السياسي والشعبي، رغم وجود تفاهمات بين حركتي فتح وحماس وتشاركهما حينها في الانتخابات وتشكيل الحكومة، بينما يبدو الإسرائيليون رغم ظاهر تفرقهم في مستويات الخطاب التصعيدي انتخابياً، مدركين حجم المأزق الوجودي الذي يعيشه كيانهم، والمتمثل بفقدان قدرة الذهاب للحرب أو قدرة الذهاب للتسوية، فالجبهات كلها مقفلة ومخاطر العبث معها مكلفة، والتسويات لا تقل كلفة، وليس في الكيان من يجرؤ على المخاطرة في الاتجاهين.

– ثمة تحولات كبرى جرت في المنطقة، فقدت خلالها «إسرائيل» الإمساك بزمام المبادرة، ومقابلها حدثت تحولات معاكسة امتلك خلالها الفلسطينيون ومن ورائهم قوى وحكومات محور المقاومة، المزيد من عناصر القدرة على المبادرة، حيث الاشتباك المفتوح مع جيش الاحتلال وقطعان المستوطنين، وطريق التفاوض مقفل كخيار يقسم الفلسطينيين، والقدرة العربية والغربية على إنعاش مسار التفاوض تتراجع، وخيار المقاومة يصير طريقاً حتمياً وحيداً، وقد أثبت قدرته على تحقيق الإنجازات، ويكفي النظر في كيفية التهرّب الإسرائيلي من التورط في الرد على صواريخ غزة على تل أبيب لمعرفة تبدل الأحوال الذي نعيش في ظله، بعدما كانت «إسرائيل» تصنع أحداثاً لتتخذها ذرائع لشن الحروب يوم كانت قادرة عليها، صارت تهوّن من خطورة التحديات لتبرير الهروب من المواجهات والحروب، لأنها فقدت هذه القدرة.

This is Nasrallah in Hebrew

Mustapha Khazem

“We devote this evening to Hassan Nasrallah, not for the love of him; but because he is our toughest enemy, and the most wonderful of all. Hassan Nasrallah turned Hezbollah into one of the strongest and richest ‘terrorist’ organizations in the world. There is no Arab enemy who inhabits the “Israeli” public like Hassan Nasrallah. He has received our attention like no other other leader of an Arab state. And we, the “Israelis” listen to him and believe him. The Secretary General of Hezbollah knows this and exploits it in an excellent way to instill fear in us to the extent of terror.” With these words, Guy Zohar presented ‘The Analysis of Nasrallah’ documentary.

From an underground location, using a state of the art camera and shifting between the studio and documented scenes of the Secretary General of Hezbollah in the open, “Israel’s” Channel 11 aired the documentary. Those being interviewed were dressed in black with a dominant dark background. Meanwhile, the historic scenes of Hezbollah’s secretary general varied in time, background and occasion. The selection of the segments showed courage, strength and the firmness in his stance as well as the extent of the depth of his Eminence’s words and positions in the consciousness of the Zionists, contrary to what the producers of the documentary intended to show.

Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak, Moshe Ya’alon, media specialists as well as military and security experts all agreed that Sayyed Nasrallah knows the most accurate details of their usurper entity. He employs events to deduce the accuracy of his opinion and logic using excerpts from the aforementioned officials themselves.

Olmert and Falling into Nasrallah’s Trap

The first person interviewed following the introduction was former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, the most prominent loser in the Second Lebanon War and a convict serving a prison sentence on corruption charges.

“We fell into Nasrallah’s media trap. We made a mistake broadcasting his speeches during the 2006 war as if he was our foreign minister and our prime minister, allowing him to instill doubt in us,” Olmert said.

This statement follows several “Israeli” surveys. Those surveyed confirmed that they believed Sayyed Nasrallah more than the leaders of the entity because he always tells the truth.

Olmert also spoke of Sayyed Nasrallah following-up on events. He referred to Sayyed’s famous Spider Web speech on the occasion of the 2000 liberation in the town of Bint Jbeil.

“The disillusioned and disorganized withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000 was the basis of the Spider Web speech delivered by (Sayyed) Nasrallah,” Olmert said.

Then one of the experts involved in the investigation explained that, “Nasrallah succeeded in appearing before the Arabs as the one who expelled the occupation from his land in 2000. He was the greatest victor.”

Barak: Nasrallah Should Not Be Underestimated

According to former “Israeli” Prime Minister, Minister of War and the one defeated in Lebanon in 2000, Ehud Barak, “Nasrallah, without a doubt, represents another kind of enemy for “Israel”. He is a leader with good political skills and should not be underestimated.”

The former Northern Corps commander, Eyal Ben Reuven, echoed Barak’s sentiments saying, “He is a bitter and harsh enemy. He is worthy of appreciation. He is a bookish man (educated). He studies us and knows us.”

Yaalon on Sayyed and Hezbollah being Lebanese

Former “Israeli” War Minister Moshe Yaalon dealt with Sayyed Nasrallah’s personality in terms of identity, belonging and action. He focused on Sayyed’s achievements in gaining international legitimacy as well as legitimacy in Lebanon for resistance’s operations against “Israel”. He also talked about the strategy Sayyed used to confirm this identity saying, “Nasrallah firmly stigmatized our presence in Lebanon as an occupation and continued repeating this description … occupation .. occupation.”

He also referred to the special capabilities His Eminence possesses.

“Certainly, when we were in the security belt, we realized that he is an enemy that understands us more than others. He is intelligent. He knows how to exploit our disadvantages to his advantages. He works admirably. He is intelligent in all fields,” Yaalon added.

The Zionist experts continued to talk about Sayyed’s creativity in guiding the media in how to “broadcast fighting scenes. No organization has reached the level that Hezbollah did in this area.”

As for Sayyed not sending his martyred son, Sayyed Hadi, to university, this point was intended to be disgraceful. However, it turned to Sayyed’s favor. Sayyed Hadi’s martyrdom in the field discredited all other narratives about his fate. One commentator said, “Nasrallah is not a leader who sent his son to foreign universities, but he sent him to the battlefield.”

The Zionist experts did not reveal anything new about Sayyed Nasrallah’s knowledge of the usurper entity, its structure and the ways its leaders think. Colonel (Res) Ronen Cohen, the head of the so-called Terror Arena in the production division of the Intelligence Directorate, revealed that, “there is no one who studied the enemy the way he did.”

“If you wanted to be victorious, you have to know the points of weakness and study them from all sides,” he said.

This is another confirmation that what bothers the Zionists is an Arab superiority over them. This is different from the image of the Arabs in the “Israeli” media and consciousness.

As for what Sayyed Nasrallah thinks about the future of the usurper entity, the deputy commander of the Northern Corps in the reserves unit, Chico Tamir, exclaimed that “Nasrallah had a great understanding that victory would not be achieved in the valleys of southern Lebanon. He will be triumphant in the consciousness.”

In this context, the experts addressed what the enemy’s media called the excess of power in the resistance society, noting that Sayyed Nasrallah “worked to build a strong society and rose with it.”

They revealed that at a time when Sayyed knew everything about them, “we did not know anything about Nasrallah.” Writer and expert on Arab affairs, Avi Issacharoff, added: “Nasrallah is the biggest threat to “Israel” today in the Middle East.” The presenter of the program Zohar concludes, “With time we understood the power of this person!”

«Israeli» Channel Airs Documentary on Sayyed Nasrallah: No one knew «Israel» as He Did

By Staff

The “Israeli” entity’s Channel 11 broadcasted a documentary on Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah whom the “Israeli” public consider credible and trustworthy.

In the documentary, various “Israeli” officials and analysts gave their remarks, unanimously agreeing that Sayyed Nasrallah possesses unique traits and skills, as he poses an utmost threat to the entity.

The officials and analysts interviewed spoke of Sayyed Nasrallah’s awareness with respect to the “Israeli” leadership and the entity’s history.

According to an “Israeli” general, “No Arab leader has read or understood ‘Israel’s’ history like Sayyed Nasrallah who managed to emerge in 2000 as a victorious, forcing the occupation out of his country.”

He went on to say, “In the era of Sayyed Nasrallah, Hezbollah reached an unprecedented level – a level no other organization

Sayyed Nasrallah’s speeches, as believed by the “Israeli” public, always turn out to be the top news in the entity’s media outlets.

Elsewhere in the documentary, another “Israeli” official admitted that “Israel” “misread his [Sayyed Nasrallah’s] speeches during the 2006 War as if he were our foreign minister and the head of our government.”

Is the UK pushing a false narrative on Hezbollah?

Arzu Merali is a writer and researcher based in London. She is one of the co-founders of Islamic Human Rights Commission (http://www.ihrc.org.uk) and co-authored its recent study “Environment of Hate: The New Normal for Muslims in the UK” with Saied Reza Ameli.
Ban on Hezbollah will criminalise dissent and become part of a gamut of law and policy the state uses to silence criticism

In 2006, there was a war – another onslaught by the invincible Israeli war machine.

Despite a media bias so palpable that even the BBC found itself guilty in a review of its coverage of Israel-Palestine affairs, people did not care for the aggressors.

They did care – in large numbers, on the streets of the UK and around the world – for the dead, injured and dying children who were collateral damage in what was supposed to be the annihilation of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Once again, at the hands of Hezbollah, the group responsible for more than a decade of guerrilla resistance that saw the Israeli army literally run out of South Lebanon in 2000, the Israelis lost.

Israel’s psychology in this defeat was so much worse because people hoisted banners around the world proclaiming: “We are all Hezbollah.” With the banner came the flag, carried by young Muslims, old Muslims, middle-aged English ladies and anti-Zionist rabbis. It was pervasive, and it has stayed.

Converging interests

This psychology is important towards understanding the UK government’s recent decision to proscribe Hezbollah under the Terrorism Act 2000. The Labour Party has raised concerns, while analysts have explored the convergence of the hard-power interests of the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia with Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s decision, which many see as an attempt to raise his star in the run-up to a Tory leadership contest.

Amal Saad, a British-Lebanese professor at the Lebanese University, has highlighted the lack of justification within the context of the Terrorism Act’s own flawed raison d’etre, the UK’s attempts to work with Hezbollah to maintain stability, and the vested interests in Javid’s decision vis-a-vis another attack on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Amal Saad@amalsaad_lb

Javid justifies his position by claiming Hizbullah is “destabilizing” the region, knowing full well that a British ban on the party that aims at delegitimizing it politically, is highly destabilizing for Lebanon which only recently formed a government after a long impasse

Amal Saad@amalsaad_lb

It’s clear this bill is a bludgeon against Corbyn, but its effects on Lebanon will not be insignificant. It will also complicate things for the UK: how will it deal with the Lebanese president who is a staunch Hizbullah ally, or the Lebanese army which coordinates with Hizbullah?

It is perhaps no surprise that a nervous, Brexit-unready country seeks validation from the US and Israel and money from the Saudis. But at the same time, there is a bizarre and truly shameful connection between hatred on the streets of London against pro-Palestinian activists and the British government.

Al-Quds Day

This is due to the link between this latest decision and a two-year campaign by a crew of fascists and pro-Israel media to shut down pro-Palestinian solidarity. This campaign has focused on the growing popularity of al-Quds Day demonstrations in London, which have increased in size over the years since the 2006 war.

Many powerful banners proclaim messages of solidarity, interfaith and inter-community harmony, and political and religious diversity in support of Palestine.

Muslims, Jews and Christians, along with people of other faiths or no faith, take part. It differs from other demonstrations in that it looks to the long-term issue: the original usurpation of Palestine and ongoing injustices. It is not reactive only when another large-scale atrocity is taking place.

The far-right rages against it on social media every year. The trope of new anti-Semitism has been levelled against the march, alongside chants of “terrorists off our streets” and op-eds about flying a “terrorist flag” in reference to Hezbollah flag. The grassroots group North West Friends of Israel petitioned London’s mayor to ban the event, saying: “After the terrible recent terrorist events in Manchester and London this display of extremism has no place on the streets of the UK.”

To characterise an event where rabbis stand alongside imams, Palestinians and Israeli activists speak on the same platform, and women, men and children gather from around the UK, in such a way is offensive.

But words can definitely hurt: after Darren Osborne drove a van into worshippers in Finsbury Park in 2017, news broke that his original target might have been the al-Quds Day demonstration.

Whose side are you on?

This egregious narrative has been validated further by Javid. It is a truly perverse moment, where those targeted for acts of terrorism now face the prospect of incarceration should they continue flying the flag of resistance against racism.

Is the government really beholden to this bunch of right-wing groups? Has the state really taken what is essentially a hearts-and-minds debate around human rights, racism and justice for Palestinians and all oppressed peoples from the streets of London to the corridors of Whitehall?

Like the ricin plot that didn’t exist, yet was used at the UN to justify a war on Iraq, or the trope of humanitarian aid necessitating intervention in Venezuela, this is flimflam that only the most misguided could believe.

‘Whose side are you on’ is the key question that will define those willing to resist oppression

Alongside the various banners hoisted each year on al-Quds Day, one stands out. It was painted during the Second Intifada and depicts the martyred 14-year-old Faris Odeh throwing a stone at an Israeli tank. It reads simply: “Whose side are you on?”

A toxic marriage

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has chosen his: an Islamophobic narrative demonising al-Quds Day via his tweet on the ban. Bizarrely, he talks about a ban under anti-terrorism laws in the context of anti-Semitism and hate crimes.

It’s ludicrous, and this is the same thing we said when the law came into being two decades ago. This will criminalise dissent and become part of a gamut of law and policies the state uses to silence criticism.

That toxic marriage of racism, legal instruments and those interest groups committed to chauvinism mirrored in the state’s own hierarchical and supremacist institutions is what any and all progressives – with all their differences – are up against.

Britain’s ban on Hezbollah is hypocritical and unhelpful

“Whose side are you on?” is the key question that will define those willing to resist oppression and work for the betterment of this world, versus those who will continue with their racist policies and discourses and plough into crowds of worshippers/Palestinians/anti-fascists worldwide.

I know which side I am on.

Something Smells Fishy: «Israel» Hallucinates of Defeating Hezbollah by Fighting Fish!

By Fatima Haydar

A while back, an invasive fish species swamped territorial waters of occupied Palestine in 2007. They came through the Suez Canal.

“Israeli” fishermen nicknamed the fish species after Hezbollah Leader His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah for their toxicity – implying Sayyed Nasrallah’s threatening effect on the “Israeli” public!

The fish has a beautiful appearance, but it has a poison that cripples humans and can sometimes be fatal. There is no antidote for this toxin.

It is no secret that Hezbollah and its Secretary General pose a grave threat to the “Israeli” entity, that the mere mention of both would have the public go bananas, so to speak.

The “Israeli” Haaretz had previously published an article on the personality of Sayyed Nasrallah, in which it analyzed the effect of his personality on the “Israeli” conscience. The newspaper wrote that the “Nasrallah phenomenon” was not related to the collective awareness of the “Israelis” as a result of the wars that it waged in several confrontations, but in the image it accumulated over the past years as a person with credibility, firmness and specialized on the “Israeli” issue.

Since then, Sayyed Nasrallah has been engraved in the consciousness of “Israelis”, not because he leads the front that represents the first strategic threat to the entity, but because of his trustworthiness.

In the meantime, the image of “Israel’s” so-called “invincible army” is beginning to diminish after the 2006 Lebanon War that devastated both, the “Israeli” public and its army.

However, there’s this motivational quote:

“Think big, dream big, believe big and the results will be big” – which the “Israeli” entity is probably abiding by in every step towards achieving its ultimate goal: defeating Hezbollah.

But what happens when your dream is so big, and you are not able to fulfil that dream, even after working so hard, what should you do?

It’s simple! Fight fish!

On Tuesday, the “Israeli” entity’s so-called Ministry of Environmental Protection lauded a “significant decrease in the presence of the invasive, poisonous Nasrallah fish”.

“Israel” hailed its ability to counter toxic fish. Bravo! Well done!

So whenever you have a fish problem, don’t worry; “Israel” will find a solution. But don’t ask it to defeat battle-hardened troops; it just fights at the level of fish.

When you can’t defeat Hezbollah, go fishing! Fight fish!  

لولا السادس من شباط

فبراير 5, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– ثمة أيام في تاريخ الشعوب تتحوّل تاريخاً ملهماً، وذكرى تستحق الإحياء لما يرتبط بها من تحولات، لكن نادراً ما يحتوي يوم واحد في تاريخين مختلفين ما احتواه يوم السادس من شباط، في عامي 1984 و2006، وفي المرتين يصحّ فيه القول، لولا السادس من شباط لما كنا هنا، ومخطئ من يعتقد أن الثاني كان ممكناً بدون الأول، أو مًن يعتقد أن الأول يحقق وصاياه وأهدافه بدون الثاني، ومخطئ أكثر من يتوهم أو يحب أن يعتقد أنه يمكن وضع أحد التاريخين بوجه الآخر.

– ببساطة شديدة، وقد كان لي شرف المساهمة المتواضعة في التاريخين، السادس من شباط 1984 هو تاريخ الانتفاضة التي أسقطت عهد الهيمنة الأميركية على لبنان وتوجها رحيل المارينز، وأنتجت إسقاط العصر الإسرائيلي بإطاحة اتفاق السابع عشر من أيار، وربطت بيروت بالجنوب، وبيروت بدمشق، فتنفّست المقاومة هواءها العربي وتمددت واشتد عودها، وصارت هي بتلك القوة التي صنعت التحرير تلو التحرير بفرض الانسحاب من صيدا في أيامها الأولى، وتلاه الانسحاب من الزهراني وصولاً إلى أطراف الشريط الحدودي المحتل منذ العام 1978، وهناك كان تفاهم نيسان وولادة قوة الدرع، والتأسيس للتحرير في العام 2000 والنصر التاريخي في تموز 2006.

– المقاومة التي تعملقت في السادس من شباط 1984 هي المقاومة التي شاركت بصناعة السادس من شباط 2006 القائم على معادلتي الوحدة الوطنية وحفظ المقاومة، وهما الوصيتان اللتان رسم أفقهما السادس من شباط بنسخته الأولى، التي وضعت المدماك الأساس لاتفاق الطائف، عبر مسلسل التسويات الذي بدأ بتفاهمات جنيف ولوزان عام 1984 ومر بالاتفاق الثلاثي عام 1985 لتكون النهاية باتفاق الطائف عام 1989 الذي أنهى الحرب وفتح طريق السلم الأهلي وإعادة بناء الدولة.

– لمن يهمهم التحدث بالأسماء والتفاصيل، من المهم التذكير أن انتفاضة السادس من شباط 1984 أسست لإعادة النظر بدور الجيش اللبناني، الذي حوله نظام الهيمنة الأميركية والسيطرة الإسرائيلية جزءاً من الحرب الأهلية، فكانت إعادة توحيده بقيادة العميد ميشال عون آنذاك بتعيينه قائداً للجيش بإقتراح من الوزير نبيه بري آنذاك، وهو العماد ميشال عون الذي كان المرشح الأبرز على مفكرة الوزير نبيه بري في نهاية الثمانينيات في مقابل مشروع التمديد للرئيس أمين الجميل يومها.

– في السادس من شباط 2006 التقت المقاومة بشحص الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله، مع التيار الشعبي المسيحي الأبرز بقيادة العماد ميشال عون، فقطع الطريق على حصار المقاومة، وسقطت مشاريع الفتن الأهلية، وجاءت حرب تموز 2006 مصداقاً على صوابية الخيار وعظيم الإنجاز، ولا تزال، حيث تحقق ما فات انتفاضة السادس من شباط بغياب الشريك المسيحي الذي يمنحها صفة الثورة المكتملة، فبقيت ثورة لم تنته، حتى جاء السادس من شباط 2006 لإكمال ما بشرت به ودعت إليه، من وحدة.

– معنى التكامل بين المحطتين اللتين تحتلان اليوم ذاته في السادس من شباط، ليس في في كون إحداهما تتمة للأخرى فقط، بل في إدراك أطراف المعادلة التي ترتبط بهذا اليوم بالحاجة للتكامل بدلاً من التنافس بين المحطتين، فيدرك قادة وجمهور التيار الوطني الحر أن ما أنجزوه مع حزب الله في 2006 تأسّس في الإنجاز الذي قاده الرئيس نبيه بري عام 1984، ويدرك قادة وجمهور حركة أمل أن ما أنجزوه في عام 1984 توّجه إنجاز حزب الله مع التيار الوطني الحر في 2006 وجاءت حرب تموز لتظهر عمق معناه، ويدرك الفريقان أن ارتباط كل منهما من طرف بعلاقة لا فكاك فيها مع حزب الله يلزمهما بالتساؤل عن المعنى من البقاء بالمناداة بصيغة حليف الحليف، بينما تحويل الثنائيتين إلى ثلاثية يفتح مساراً تاريخياً جديداً لسادس من شباط ثالث تتكامل فيه معاني التحرير والعلاقة بسورية وحفظ المقاومة والإصلاح والتغيير.

– من موقعي المتواضع وبحدود ما أعلم أقول اللهم أشهد أني قد بلغت.

Sayed Nasrallah’s Charisma and the Israeli Public Opinion

Sayyed Nasrallah Israeli media

Amin Abou Rached

Hezbollah’s missiles have built, since 1990, a new meaning in the concept of deterrence upon affecting both the decision makers in the Zionist entity and the Israeli public opinion. In parallel, Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah’s speeches have rolled, touching the consciousness of the Israeli “home front command”, in a clear indication that Hezbollah, and its leadership, knows well their influence ability.

During a quarter of century, concepts of Hezbollah’s influence have been gradually strengthened in the Israeli consciousness. Last week, the Israeli public opinion eagerly awaited the interview with Sayyed Nasrallah on Al-Mayadeen.

The Israeli street seemed not interested for neither Netanyahu’s comments nor the silly statements of the Israeli army’s speaker, Avichay Adraee, commenting on Sayyed Nasrallah’s interview.

According to the Israeli public opinion, Adraee is trying to turn the Lebanese street and especially the Shiite one against Hezbollah, rather than enhancing the Israeli morale.

In his last interview (January 26, 2019), Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Israeli settlers have been in fear from Hezbollah’s tunnels to the extent that if they hear a sound of a hammer they will call the occupation military for help.

The fear of settlers has been created many years ago, even before Sayyed Nasrallah’s “hammer” tale which went viral on social media.

Moving toward the issue of cement wall that Zionists are building on the Lebanese border with the occupied territories, Israeli settlers ask about its utility in the face of Hezbollah’s missiles that are capable of reaching the Israeli depth.

“What is the point behind building a wall that only suits the climbing maneuvers for the Israeli military? Hezbollah’s danger is within its missiles that will not keep for us any safe place to go for in a war,” one Israeli settler said after watching Sayyed Nasrallah’s interview, according to Israeli media.

By the astonishment drawn on the Zionist commentators’ faces due to peace and serenity of Sayed Nasrallah during Al-Mayadeen interview and the logical justifications his eminence had offered on his media absence throughout the past period, the Israeli analysts personally responded to Adraee, who tried to exploit Sayyed Nasrallah’s silence in a bid to overcome the Israeli frustration.

From 1996 to 2019, a new generation in the Zionist army has born. A generation that grew on distrust in its government and army, especially after the Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000, and the victory achieved against the Israeli enemy in July 2006. This generation has only witnessed the era of defeats, unlike the generations that preceded it, which lived Israel’s arrogance on Arab. A relation of influence has been built between the new Israeli generation and Sayyed Nasrallah, who has managed to set new equations with the Israeli enemy. Hence, this generation of Israeli settlers became a prisoner of Sayyed Nasrallah’s “charisma”.
