خطة بومبيو تلفظ أنفاسها و لبنان لن يتنازل…؟

العميد د. أمين محمد حطيط

ظنّت أميركا أنّ لبنان الذي قادته بمؤامراتها وبفساد معظم مسؤوليه، وأوصلته الى حال الوهن الشديد ودفعت به الى قاع الانهيار المركب، انهيار مالي واقتصادي وسياسي وقبل ذلك وأهم من ذلك انهيار أخلاقي لدى معظم من يتولى شأناً عاماً فيه، ظنّت أميركا انّ لبنان الذي هذا حاله سيكون طيّعاً بيديها مستجيباً لإملاءاتها مستعداً للتنازل عن حقوقه ليقدّم ما أسمته «هدايا لترامب في أيامه الأخيرة» ويقتطع من لحمه ودمه أجزاء ليعوّض بها على ترامب خسائره التي لم تعوّضها كما يبدو حلقات التطبيع المتتالية من المشرق العربي الى مغربه.

ومع الظنّ هذا كان هاجس يسكن النفس الخبيثة ويشغل البال الأميركي، هاجس المقاومة في لبنان التي استطاعت في العام 2000 ثم في العام 2006 ان تصنع للبنان وللمنطقة ولمحور المقاومة انتصارات جاءت خارج السياق الكوني العام، اذ في الوقت التي نكست فيه الرؤوس أمام القطب الواحد بعد انهيار القطب الآخر دولياً أيّ الاتحاد السوفياتي وتزاحمت الدول والكيانات على الباب الأميركي طلباً للرضا وتقديماً لأوراق اعتمادهم تابعين وعملاء لأميركا، كانت المقاومة ومحورها تبدي شيئاً آخر وتتمسك بحقوقها وبعلانية تجاهر بأنها لن تتنازل عن حقوقها الوطنيّة وعن فلسطين وحقوق شعب فلسطين، وفي الوقت الذي أسمي «عصر أميركا الذهبي» عالمياً، العصر الذي عملت فيه أميركا بالقوة الصلبة وانتشرت في الخليج واحتلت أفغانستان والعراق في هذا الوقت سجلت المقاومة ومحورها النصر في لبنان وكسرت استراتيجية القوة الصلبة ثم لوت ذراع العاملين بالقوة الناعمة في لبنان وإيران في العام 2008 و2009، ثم أفشلت العمل باستراتيجية القوة الإرهابية العمياء في سورية.

وأميركا مسكونة بهذا الهاجس، لأنها تعلم أنّ حصادها في أيّ مجال سيكون مهدّداً وانتصارها لن يكون مستقراً وأنّ ما تريد لن يتحقق ما لم تكسر شوكة المقاومة ومحورها، ولذلك تقوم أميركا اليوم بأبشع أنواع التصرفات الوحشية والعدوانية ضدّ إيران وسورية ولبنان في إطار ما تسمّيه «سياسة الضغوط القصوى» وهي تؤمل أن تكسر المقاومة وتزيح خطرها وتتخلص من الهواجس التي تشكلها، فهل الهدف الأميركي ممكن التحقيق في المنطقة عامة وفي لبنان خاصة؟ وهل لبنان سيصل الى يوم يرى فيه انّ التنازل عن حقوقه بات أمراً لا مفرّ منه، وان أميركا تخيّره بين التنازل أو الانتحار والموت والانحلال والدمار؟

قبل الإجابة لا بدّ من التذكير بما تريده أميركا من لبنان ولا بدّ من استعادة لائحة الطلبات الأميركية المفروضة على لبنان وهل لبنان قادر على تلبيتها؟

تريد أميركا من لبنان ما يمكن تصنيفه تحت عنوانين، المطالب الأميركية الخالصة، والمصالح «الإسرائيلية» الخاصة، أما في الفئة الأولى فإنّ أميركا تريد أن يكون لبنان قاعدة أميركيّة تلعب دور الباب الغربي لمنطقة الشرق الأوسط، وأن لا يكون لها في النفوذ فيه شريك إقليمي أو دولي مهما كانت علاقة هذا الشريك بأميركا، أما في العنوان الثاني فإنها تريد إعطاء «إسرائيل» ما تطمع به في الجو والبر والبحر والتنازل لها عن 1800 كلم2 من المنطقة الاقتصادية اللبنانية، كما والتنازل عن الحدود البرية الدولية، والقبول بالاحتلال لمزارع شبعا ومنح «إسرائيل» حصة في مياه الليطاني، وأخيراً توطين نصف مليون لاجئ فلسطيني فيه.

هذه هي المطالب الأميركية – الإسرائيلية من لبنان، وتعتقد أميركا انّ بإمكانها انتزاع ذلك عبر مَن يعملون بإمرتها في الداخل بشرط أن تنجح في تعطيل قدرات المقاومة وعزلها ثم الحرب عليها وإسقاطها، ولذلك وضعت أميركا الخطط وحشدت العملاء من الداخل والإقليم، وأوكلت إليهم مهامّ وزعت عليهم لتحقيق هدف واحد هو “إسقاط المقاومة»، لأنّ هذا الإسقاط هو الممر الإجباري الوحيد لحصول أميركا و»إسرائيل» على ما يريدون في لبنان.

ومن عميق أسف نجد أنّ أميركا و»إسرائيل» وجدت في لبنان من العملاء والتابعين وفي كلّ القطاعات الإعلامية والسياسية والاقتصادية وبدائع المجتمع المدني والمنظمات غير الحكومية (NGO.S) ما جعلها مطمئنة الى انها ستحقق أهدافها وان المسالة مسالة أسابيع أو أشهر.

بيد أنّ الظنّ الأميركي كان شيئاً والنتائج في الميدان جاءت على شكل آخر، وإذا دققنا في نتائج الهجوم الأميركي الأخير الذي ينفذ وفقاً لخطة بومبيو2019 والتي تسبّبت في الفراغ السياسي والانهيار الاقتصادي والمالي للبنان والتهويل الأمني، نجد أنّ أميركا وبيد محلية لبنانية توصّلت الى إيلام الشعب اللبناني وتسبّبت عبر الفاسدين الذين ترعاهم وكانت قد وزعتهم على كلّ القطاعات… تمكنت من تجويع أكثر من نصف الشعب، إلا أنها لم تتمكن من المقاومة التي عرفت كيف تحصّن ذاتها وتحمي قدراتها العسكرية وتستمرّ في قوّتها التي ترعب «إسرائيل» وتالياً ترعب كلّ من تسوّل له نفسه انتزاع حق من حقوق لبنان، وبقيت «إسرائيل» تعيش حالة رعب جعلت جنودها يخشون من «الطفل حسين» الذي لاحق دجاجته حتى الشريط الشائك عند الحدود فأرعب العدو حتى جعله يطلق النار، لكن رصاصه لم يخف الطفل.

إنّ المقاومة ومجتمعها وحلفاءها في لبنان يعلمون ما تريد أميركا و»إسرائيل»، ويعرفون خططهم، ويدركون أنّ كلّ فاسد في الدولة هو عميل تابع للعدو بعلمه وقصده أو من غير علم، وفي الوقت ذاته يعلمون أن ليس بإمكان أميركا ان تصنع أكثر مما فعلت أو أن تستمرّ في خطة بومبيو الإجرامية والخبيثة وهي خطة لن يبقى متاحاً العمل بها أكثر من الأيام الثلاثين المتبقية لترامب وجلاده بومبيو. وتستطيع المقاومة أن تقول بعدها أنها حققت نصراً جديداً بإسقاط خطة بومبيو ومنعت أيّ تنازل من لبنان عن أيّ من الحقوق الوطنية. وكما انتصرت في العام 2000 و2006 سيكون النصر المنتظر مع الأيام الأولى للعام 2021.

Lebanon’s Defense Minister: We’re Not Concerned about Pressure, Will Respond to Any ’Israeli’ Aggression

Fatima Salami

When “Israel” invaded Lebanon in an attempt to occupy it and the resistance confronted it, it was often said at the time that “the eye does not resist the gimlet”. The weak believed this defeatist saying. But the resistance ignored it. A few have sought and struggled for the sake of Lebanon. It triumphed despite little material capabilities. And history recorded the enemy’s first ever unconditional withdrawal from an Arab country.

In 2006, the enemy waged a massive war against the homeland. The outcome was its surrender under Lebanese strikes. In 2017, the resistance and the military establishment fought a war hand in hand against the Takfiris. This war ended with the liberation of Lebanon from the terrorists. The so-called emirate was toppled thanks to the golden equation: the army, the people and the resistance.

A few days ago, “Israel” committed a new folly – a blatant and open attack on Beirut’s southern suburbs [Dahiyeh]. It did not go unnoticed. We saw the unanimous official positions as well as the popular support for the resistance and the military institutions, which seems ready to face any “Israeli” aggression against Lebanon.

While speaking to Lebanon’s Defense Minister Elias Bou Saab one gets the sense of how powerful and determined the military establishment is to defend the country. The minister seems confident more than ever about Lebanon’s ability to defend its territory from any attack.

In an exclusive with Al-Ahed News Website, Bou Saab confirms that the Lebanese army will take the initiative to confront any “Israeli” attack. In his opinion, Lebanon is stronger than before and it only gets more powerful with each passing crisis, especially with a strong president and a mindful leadership from all parties. The “Israelis” should take note of this.

Bou Saab also stresses that objections to Lebanon’s behavior are “anomalous” voices that have no value in politics and in influencing public opinion. Regarding external pressures, Bou Saab explains that the president is not concerned and neither are we. He says that their only concerns are Lebanon’s interest first and foremost. Thanks to this awareness, Lebanon continues to go from one victory to another.

Below is the transcript of the interview:

Q. Has Lebanon been subjected to pressure as a result of the positions it has formally adopted, especially with regard to the position of President Michel Aoun and the decisions taken by the Supreme Defense Council?

A. I do not want to say that Lebanon came under pressure. His Excellency the President is not concerned with these pressures and neither are we. When we make decisions at the Supreme Defense Council, we are concerned only with Lebanon’s interest first and foremost. President Aoun’s position is well known. In 2006, it was known, and today it is still known. Every attack on Lebanon is viewed by His Excellency the President through his articulated position. This was evident in his last stance following the attack on Dahiyeh. President Aoun is not concerned with any external pressures. He ignores any position from any party that contradicts his convictions. This is the approach of any President of the Republic who is keen on dignity and sovereignty. Lebanon makes its decisions in line with the positions we heard from the President of the Republic. He does not adopt positions that take into consideration how to please external parties. He does not adopt positions based on fears of exposing Lebanon to external pressures. We should know this about President Aoun. He is not concerned with any pressures. He is only concerned with the Lebanese national interest. And this is what we have seen the last time.

Q. There was talk of US pressure exerted on the Lebanese army, especially after confronting the Zionist drones. Was the army really pressured to be neutral? 

A. The decision made by the Lebanese army on Wednesday (August 28) to confront the Zionist drones in Adaisseh is not a spur of the moment decision. The order was not given on Wednesday. The army implemented the decision after seeing the drones with a naked eye. So, it fired directly at them. Earlier, I said that the Lebanese army will take the initiative to respond to any “Israeli” attack against Lebanese territory. Any attack that is clear and apparent and the army has a clear shot, the military will initiate, confront and shoot at it. Coincidentally, a few hours later, this incident took place. It turned out that drones flew at an altitude the army could see with a naked eye. So, it fired at them. This decision has not changed whether there is pressure or not. The position remains the same and will not change.

Q. If the incident reoccurs?

A. I assure you that the decision will remain the same. It will be in line with the defense of Lebanon and the Lebanese territories. We will respond to any “Israeli” aggression that the army sees clearly whether on land or in the air. In a previous incident along the border, a Lebanese army officer shot at “Israeli” drones. This means that the Lebanese army is following the same protocol and will not change courser under any pressure.

Q. Are you confident of the official Lebanese stance after seeing an honorable position from the three leaders? Or do you have fears of a split that may happen at any moment?

A. I do not think divisions can happen because the official positions in Lebanon and the political parties represented in both the parliament and the government are all united and clear. This is a blatant “Israeli” attack against Lebanon. Some Lebanese may agree with us that this is an “Israeli” attack, but they had a different position regarding the response, stating that the response should be decided by the government. They also argued that decisions regarding war and peace must be in the hands of the Lebanese state.

When this team said this in the Cabinet, the prime minister responded by stating that we do not make the decision for war and peace. “Israel” was the one that made that decision. It is the aggressor, and we will defend ourselves.

I think that these words demonstrate that there is certainly no fear of the unified positions among Lebanese officials being divided. I believe that the “Israelis” must learn a lesson from what happened. And each time they choose to attack Lebanon, they will be met with an unanimous position in the face of their threats.

Q. Do you think that Lebanon is stronger today?

A. We come out stronger than before following every crisis we go through and all the problems inside Lebanon or problems due to “Israeli” attacks. Many of the decisions made in Lebanon in the presence of the President of the Republic made us emerge from any crisis stronger than before. We have been through crises, both internal and external, and every time we came out stronger and stronger. Here, we are talking about the “Israeli” aggressions.

If you made a comparison between the present and what happened in the July war, in terms of the divisions and the political positions, I believe we have achieved a massive victory, even inside Lebanon, through political and unanimous positions. The “Israelis” should learn a lesson from this. Perhaps in the past, they were able to exert greater influence on Lebanon’s political decision-making process through international pressure. However, this is no longer an option for them, especially in the presence of a strong president and a mindful leadership of all parties. Therefore, the objections to Lebanon’s behavior are “anomalous” voices that have no value in politics and in influencing public opinion, which will be supporting the state in defending the Lebanese territory in the face of “Israeli” attacks.

Q. On the second anniversary of the liberation of the Joroud, the equation of the army, the people, and the resistance was embodied. Today we are beginning to see this trio is ever present in light of the recent Zionist aggression against Lebanon. Do you think this equation will peak?

A. In the ministerial statement we were clear: the Lebanese have the right to defend their land by all available means. They have the right to resist any aggression. Some get upset over the description of the trio: the army, the people and the resistance. But the ministerial statement translates this. The disagreement may occur in terms of talking about the resistance as an organization, whether it can make decisions on its own. I am not going to discuss this here. As a defense minister, I am not in a position to talk about this issue now. This should be discussed on the dialogue table in due course. But I emphasize that in any problem, crisis or aggression, we will not accept to burn time debating how to respond. We will all defend our homeland whether through the army, or the people. And whoever wants to resist, let him resist the way he wants. This is evident in the unity that is embodied during any assault. This issue is out of discussion. Any aggression will be faced with Lebanese consensus and defense by all means.

Q. With regard to the international and regional contacts that Lebanon has made officially, have you obtained what some call reassurances that “Israel” will not launch a large-scale war against Lebanon?

A. Diplomatic circles are saying that “Israel’s” message implies that they are not preparing for war and they do not intend to wage a war. What takes us to the other possibility is that “Israel” is preparing for elections and is trying to strengthen its internal situation by launching attacks of this kind. But these attacks are a double-edged sword that could turn against those who think about attacking. Because today we have a strong Lebanon capable of responding and creating equations. It can deter the enemy. If this was “Israel’s” intention, it does not necessarily mean it would have a positive outcome for the elections. It might turn out to be an issue with negative repercussions for them because as I said we are much stronger than before.

Q. Have you felt that the Americans are upset with what “Israel” did, or is there agreement with the “Israeli” position?

A. We found out that no one was expecting this to happen, after inquiries were made from more than one side.

Q. How do you explain what UNIFIL was quoted as saying that shots fired by the army violated Resolution 1701? Isn’t this a double standard, as we do not see this tone when “Israel” violates Lebanese airspace on a daily basis?

A. If an official position is issued by UNIFIL regarding this issue, we will respond in due course and give them the appropriate reply.

Final Words

On the anniversary of the Dawn of the Joroud Liberation, I pay tribute to the souls of all the martyrs who have fallen and without them we would not have been able to continue on this path. Without them, we would not have emerged stronger. We emerge from every battle, every war and every crisis stronger thanks to the blood of the honorable martyrs who fell while defending Lebanon, the Lebanese people as well as the homeland, its dignity and sovereignty.

Therefore, we can only salute their families, pray for mercy for the martyrs and say Lebanon will carry on from one victory to another until the logic of the state is achieved, attacks are prevented and any terrorist or enemy is deterred from thinking of violating Lebanon in the future or sees an opportunity to steal its land, oil or anything else.

14 آب ليس يوماً مضى بل صيرورة مستمرة… والمطلوب؟

أغسطس 14, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– في الرابع عشر من آب 2006 تحقق عظيم الإنجاز بما يقارب الإعجاز في نصر تاريخي هزم أعتى قوة يعتمد عليها الغرب في فرض سياساته على الشرق، وبزغ فجر حركات المقاومة لتعيد كتابة التاريخ وترسم حدود الجغرافيا باسم الشعوب التي غيّبت طويلاً عن قضاياها المركزية، حيث ترجمت المقاومة التي احتفلت بانتصارها كل شعوب المنطقة إرادة هذه الشعوب في تعبير نوعي عن مفهوم الديمقراطية والإرادة الشعبية. بالتوازي سقطت أحلام وتهاوت أبراج من الأوهام، حيث كل ما سيهدد به الغرب لاحقاً هو ما سبق وما فعله سابقاً، وكانت حرب تموز البديل الذي راهن عليه لاستعادة ماء وجهه بعد حربين فاشلتين في أفغانستان والعراق، لتشكيل شرقه الأوسط الجديد كما بات ما لا يحتاج دليلاً ولا برهاناً، وأصيبت «إسرائيل» في روحها، حيث لن تنفعها بعد ذلك لا قبب حديدية وفولاذية ولا خطط ترميم لقوة الردع ولا استعادة العافية لجبهة داخلية أصيبت بمرض عضال لا شفاء منه، وخرج الشعب في مسيراته المهيبة فجر الرابع عشر من آب يكلل النصر بالمزيد من التضحيات حاضناً مقاومته وفارضاً تفسيره للقرار الأممي 1701، وخرج الجيش اللبناني المتوّج بالثلاثية الذهبية مع شعب ومقاومة لا ينازعانه الحضور العلني لعروض القوة، كأقوى جيوش المنطقة بهذين الرديفين، لا تعوزه المساعدات ولا الرعاية الأميركية الهادفة لتجريده من أقوى ما عنده، وهو الثلاثية المقدسة التي أكدها النصر.

– الصيرورة المستمرة لمعادلات 14 آب ظهرت مع تعميم نموذج المقاومة من لبنان وفلسطين إلى العراق واليمن، وظهرت في النموذج السوري لمقاومة الغزوة الدولية الكبرى، وفي صمود إيران، وفي نهوض روسيا لدورها كدولة عظمى، وفي استفاقة التنين الصيني للمنازلة في ساحات الاقتصاد تمهيداً لمنازلات مقبلة في سواها. وفي هذه الصيرورة تأكدت معادلات نصر آب، وترسخت وتعملقت، وخلال الأعوام التي مضت حاول الأميركي والإسرائيلي وما بينهما من حكام الخليج والغرب، وبعض الداخل اللبناني والعربي والإسلامي تعويض نواقص الحرب ومعالجة أسباب الهزيمة، فكانت كل حرب لإضعاف المقاومة تزيدها قوة.

– قرأ المعنيون بالهزيمة على تنوّع مشاربهم وهوياتهم أن نصر آب هو نتيجة الطبيعة الخارجية للحرب، وأن تفوق المقاومة على جيش الاحتلال تقنياً جاء بفعل أسلحة لا قيمة لها في مواجهات داخلية، فكانت تجربة الفتنة الداخلية، من محاولة كسر الاعتصام الذي دعت إليه المقاومة وحلفاؤها في مطلع العام 2007، وصولاً لقرار تفكيك شبكة اتصالات المقاومة، تمهيداً لتوريطها في فخ التصادم مع الجيش وتفتيت الشعب إلى قبائل متحاربة، فكانت عملية 7 أيار، التي يقدمها البعض دليلاً على استخدام المقاومة لسلاحها نحو الداخل اللبناني، تأكيداً لمعادلة العجز الشامل عن كسر مصادر قوة المقاومة. ومثلها جاءت الحرب على سورية وما رافقها من استقدام كل منتجات الفكر الوهابي أملاً بتعويض عجز جيش الاحتلال عن بذل الدماء باستحضار من لا يقيم لها حساباً، فجاءت نتائج الحرب تقول إن مصادر قوة المقاومة لم تمسها لا محاولات الفتن الداخلية، ولا المواجهة مع تشكيلات الإرهاب التكفيري.

– اليوم ومع تسيّد معادلات المقاومة على مساحة المنطقة من مضيق هرمز إلى مضيق باب المندب ومضيق جبل طارق، ومضيق البوسفور، وما بينها من بحار ويابسة، تبقى المعضلة في قدرة مشروع المقاومة على بلورة نموذج للحكم يُحاكي نجاحاتها في مواجهة العدوان والاحتلال والإرهاب، فيما السلاح الاقتصادي الهادف لتفجير معادلات الدول من داخلها يشكل أهم استثمارات المشروع الأميركي، ويبدو أن إعادة تنظيم الدولة الوطنية ومؤسساتها يسبق في الأهمية الحلول الاقتصادية والمالية التقنية في خطة المواجهة. وهنا لا بد من التأكيد أن بناء الدولة القوية كهدف يبقى هو العنوان، والمقاومة محور تحالفات عن يمينها وعن يسارها ما يكفي لموازين القوى اللازمة لمفهوم الدولة المرتجاة مع مراعاة ضرورات الواقعية والمرونة، وحيث يتحدث الجميع عن الدولة المدنية كإطار للحل، يتباين المفهوم حول طبيعتها، وتبدو المقاومة معنية ببدء الحوار الجاد حول هذا المفهوم خصوصاً مع حليفيها الاستراتيجيين في حركة أمل والتيار الوطني الحر ومعهما حلفاء أصيلون بالمناداة بالدولة المدنية ويحملون نموذجهم اللاطائفي إثباتاً على إمكان تخطي الطائفية، كما حمل مشروع المقاومة الإثبات على إمكانية هزيمة الاحتلال، وهؤلاء الذين يتقدمهم الحزب السوري القومي الإجتماعي متطلعون لهذا الحوار الجاد من موقعهم الشريك في مشروع المقاومة ومعاركها، والهدف هو البدء ببلورة مفهوم موحد، سيكون وحده الجواب على التحديات، خصوصاً ان الهواجس التي يثيرها طرح التيار الوطني الحر بالدعوة لتطبيق عنوان الدولة المدنية بما يتخطى إلغاء الطائفية كشرط للسير بها، ليست هواجس العلمانيين بل هي هواجس تمسّ ما يهتم به حزب الله من شؤون تتصل بدور الدين في الدولة وكيفية الفصل والوصل بينهما وضمن أي حدود. وما يثيره حلفاء حزب الله الذين يثير هواجسهم خطاب الحقوق المسيحية التي ينادي بها التيار الوطني الحر كتعبير عن تصعيد للعصبيات الطائفية، لا يخشونها من موقع طائفي وهم عابرون للطوائف، بل من موقع الحرص على عدم إثارة العصبيات، بينما في هذه اللغة ما يثير مباشرة هواجس قواعد وجمهور المقاومة وبيئتها الحاضنة.

– المهمة ليست سهلة، لكنها ليست أصعب من مقتضيات النصر في آب 2006، وأهميتها في كونها تكمل حلقات النصر، وتجعله مشروعاً وصيرورة، لا مجرد لحظة تاريخية مجيدة.

Sayyed Nasrallah to Iran’s Zarif: US, Defeated by Popular Resistance Group, Stands Helpless in Face of Islamic Republic

manar-03168220015657999513

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah sent a cable to the Iranian foreign minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif, expressing solidarity with him in face of the US sanctions and hailing his powerful stances in face of the world’s tyrants, mainly the US administration, in all international forums.

“When the US administration announced imposing sanctions on you personally, my brethren and I mulled sending a solidarity cable to you; however, we decided to delay it till August 14 which marks the anniversary of Hezbollah divine victory over US ‘Israel’ in 2006 war.”

Sayyed Nasrallah told Zarif that 2006 war was decided and planned by the US administration and carried out by the Israeli army which was chosen because it was considered as the most powerful army in the region.

John Bolton, US Ambassador to the United Nations Security Council at that time, told An Arab official that the war would never be halted before crushing Hezbollah, according to Sayyed Nasrallah’s cable which added that Bolton, at the end of the war, told the same official that if the war had continued, ‘Israel’ would face a catastrophe.

Sayyed Nasrallah wondered how US, defeated by a popular resistance group, would be in face of a major regional country, adding that Bolton (Trump’s National Security Adviser) who is threatening to overthrow the Islamic Republic of Iran, has never made any achievement throughout his life.

Hezbollah leader hailed the Iranian top diplomat’s powerful stances, which stick to right and truth, in face of the world’s tyrants, mainly the US administration, in all international forums, describing it as the greatest jihad.

“They wanted to besiege, relegate and terrify you, but you have gained a stronger presence, more powerful influence and higher status, and so you will remain, if God wills, defending the oppressed and vulnerable as well as the resistance fighters”

God bless you! Sayyed Nasrallah closed his cable to Dr. Zarif.

Iran’s Zarif Congratulates Lebanon’s People & Resistance on Anniversary of 2006 Victory over ‘Israel’ 

August 14, 2019

zarif

Thirteen years after the victory over the usurper “Israeli” entity in the July 2006 war, Iranian Foreign Minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif congratulated Lebanon’s leadership, people, Hezbollah and the Islamic Resistance on the anniversary of the 33-day war.

In marking the occasion, Zarif told Al-Ahed News that the victory exposed the “truth” about “Israel”.

“The Lebanese people and the Islamic Resistance have proved to the world the truth that the Zionist entity can be defeated. No matter how much this entity wants to wage wars, set fires and shed the blood of the people in this region, it cannot,” Tehran’s top diplomat said in a joint interview with Al-Ahed and Al-Nour Radio.

“This victory was a victory for the entire region, international rights and proper international relations,” Zarif added.

“The people of the region and the world owe it to the resistance of the Lebanese people, the Islamic Resistance and Hezbollah who confronted the arrogance of the Zionist entity. They also confronted the terrorism of the Takfiri group Daesh. They resisted this terrorist and Takfiri threat which was a scourge for the world,” the senior Iranian official explained.

New Equation Emerged after July War: Hezbollah the Invincible Power

Hezbollah rally

Marwa Haidar

Image result for speechHezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah appeared in his first address following the 33-day July War in 2006, called the outcome of the war a ‘divine victory’ that will set new equations in the region.

In his resounding address on September 22, 2006, Sayyed Nasrallah said his well-known statement: “Era of defeats has gone, it’s time of victories.”

Victory and Defeat Controversy

Just as the cessation of hostilities was announced on August 14, 2006, questions were raised on the outcome of the war. On the Lebanese side, more than 1200 Lebanese civilians were martyred and at least 4,000 others were injured, added to the mass destruction caused by the heavy Israeli bombardment throughout 33 days. On the other hand, at least 150 Israelis were killed and 450 others were injured.

Given these figures, doubts were raised whether Lebanon and the resistance have emerged victorious or not.

For long years, the controversy of victory and defeat in wars has been heated. While many voices take number of casualties as an indicator in this regard, others focus on different factors.

Talking about the definition of victory in wars, we can find out that victory is defined as the ability to achieve the goals set at the start of any war along with the ability to invest the military achievements in terms of politics.

Going back to the last decade, the World War II can be a good example to prove the above mentioned theory.

Only 17% of the war’s victims were from the Axis powers, while the 83% of the victims were from the Allies, the side who emerged victorious at the end of the war.

July War Israeli Goals

Returning to July War, the Zionist entity announced the goals of launching the aggression against Lebanon as:

  • Releasing the two Israeli soldiers abducted by Hezbollah fighters on July 12, 2006
  • Halting the launch of rockets by Hezbollah operatives at the occupied territories
  • Disarming Hezbollah

It is noteworthy here to mention that Israeli officials, back then, used the term “crushing Hezbollah” while talking about the July War goals.Image result for hezbollah missiles

The war was over in August and none of the three goals was achieved. The bodies of the two abducted Israeli soldiers were returned the next year (July 2007) in an indirect German-mediated swap deal between Hezbollah and the Zionist entity.

Hezbollah fighters didn’t cease to launch rockets. The Israeli cities were under the Lebanese resistance fire for 33 days.

Moreover, Hezbollah kept his weapons. And even more, the Lebanese resistance movement has grown considerably stronger since the 2006.

Goals Changed?

Thirteen years passed since the July War, which set up the major balance of power between the Lebanese resistance and the Zionist entity. On the thirteenth anniversary of the war, former Israeli Chief of Staff, Gadi Eisenkot lists, in an article published by the Washington Institute on July 8, 2019, the “strategic” goals set by the Zionist entity at the start of July War.

  • “Strengthening Israeli deterrence in the region”
  • “Halting terrorism from Lebanon’s sovereign territory”
  • “Forcing the Lebanese government to take responsibility for the south”
  • “Pressuring Hezbollah to return the kidnapped soldiers”
  • “Causing significant damage to Hezbollah and its military capabilities”
  • “Keeping Syria and the Palestinian territories out of the war”

None of the goals announced by Tel Aviv in 2006 was mentioned by the Israeli retired general. The Israeli tone, while talking about July War goals, was not just softened by setting totally different ones, but also these goals were replaced by others that show the Zionist entity’s incapacity to deal with Hezbollah.

When an occupation military, once called the invincible army in the region, uses the term “deterrence” while talking about a power fighting it, then this occupation is questioning its existence, and thus acknowledging that Hezbollah has imposed his own equation of “Lebanese deterrence”.

Israeli Worries

Away from Eisenkot article, Israeli officials have been throughout the last years looking at Hezbollah as the one Arab force to have denied the Israeli occupation military a single decisive victory in the past three decades.

With Hezbollah’s nightmarish threats of conquering the Galilee, showering the Zionist entity with precision missiles, and striking Haifa’s ammonia tanks or Dimona’s nuclear reactor, the Israeli military commanders believe that only a ceasefire will make them safe again.

The Israeli people, meanwhile, look at their army’s ‘defensive’ efforts- the concrete barrier on the Lebanese-Palestinian frontier and the multi-billion-dollar missile defense system- as useless measures.

Thirteen years on 2006, memories of the July War confrontations with Hezbollah, added to the expertise the Lebanese resistance movement has gained from the Syrian war, are enough to serve as a deterrent against a future conflict with an undefeated Hezbollah!

Zarif To Al-Ahed: Lebanese People & Resistance Proved to the World That Defeating “Israel” Is Possible
