في يوم القدس.. عاصمة فلسطين ليست وحدها
في يوم القدس.. عاصمة فلسطين ليست وحدها

رغم تشديد السلطات الإسرائيلية قبضتها على القدس المحتلة وسعيها لفصلها عن الامتداد الفلسطيني في غزة والضفة، تبدو المدينة اليوم أكثر ارتباطاً بقطاع غزة وبمحور المقاومة.

“القدس واحدة موحدة” هي حقيقة تؤكدها مئات آلاف الحناجر ولغات الهتاف المتعددة التي اجتمعت في شوارع وساحات العالم في يومها العالمي، لعل أبرزها صدرت عن أهل اليمن الذين أكدوا بمشاركتهم الكثيفة أن القدس المحتلة تبقى البوصلة التي لا تغير اتجاهها حروب ولا حصار.

أما في القدس المحتلة فكان عشرات الآلاف يتحدون الحصار والحواجز للوصول إلى مسجدها الأقصى لأداء صلاة الجمعة الأخيرة من رمضان، وهاجس المحتل الإسرائيلي منع احتشاد المتضامنين من كل أنحاء فلسطين مع أهالي حي الشيخ جراح.

قالت الشعوب كلمتها بوضوح، كلمة سمعتها دوائر القرار في “تل أبيب” التي تتصاعد خشيتها من نتائج التوتر المتراكم منذ بدء شهر رمضان المبارك مع انتفاضة باب العمود. تصعيد تخشاه “تل أبيب” لدرجة توسيط مصر لطلب التهدئة من فصائل غزة المستعدة صواريخها لنصرة القدس.. فيرد المقدسيون بالهتاف لغزة.

الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصر الله اعتبر أن التطوّر الأبرز بدخول غزة بصواريخها على خط المواجهة، وأكد على ثبات محور المقاومة مقابل تصدع المحاور المقابلة.

أما المرشد الإيراني السيد علي خامنئي فأكد أن “تكامل المسلمين حول محور القدس هو كابوس للكيان الصهيوني“، مضيفاً أن “موازين القوى تغيرت بقوة لصالح الفلسطينيين”.

وفي هذا السياق، قال رئيس تحرير جريدة “رأي اليوم” الالكترونية غبد الباري عطوان للميادين إن “إحياء يوم القدس أصبح مكرساً على الخريطة العالمية”، فيما العدو الإسرائيلي “في طريقه إلى الانهيار”. 

وتابع عطوان: “الدول المطبعة أصبحت مهمشة جداً ولا تملك أي دور”، أما التغييرات الجوهرية في المنطقة “فحدثت بفعل صمود سوريا ومحور المقاومة والصواريخ الدقيقة”.

بدوره، أشار أستاذ علم الاجتماع والدراسات الدولية سيف دعنا في حديث للميادين إلى وجود “تغيير للمشهد في المنطقة، والمحور المناصر لفلسطين يسجل انتصارات”، فيما بدأ يظهر “تراجع الوجود الأميركي في المنطقة والعالم، وهذا يؤثر على مكانة إسرائيل”.

وأضاف دعنا: “الدول المطبعة لم تكن يوماً في محور فلسطين وإعلانها التطبيع لا يغير في الموازين”، أما “تل أبيب” فتبدو “قلقة جداً من صواريخ اليمن وانضمام صنعاء إلى محور المقاومة”.

وأكد دعنا أن المشهد الإقليمي “يتغير ليس بسبب الرغبات إنما بفضل تغيير موازين القوى على الأرض”، والتي تميل اليوم لصالح محور المقاومة.

Ayatollah Khamenei: Balance tipped in Islam’s favor, Zionist enemy in decline

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has marked the International Quds Day, saying Israel is not a country but a terrorist base against the people of Palestine and other Muslim nations.

“Since the first day, the Zionists turned the usurped Palestine into a terrorist base. Israel is not a country, rather it is a terrorist camp against the Palestinian nation and other Muslim nations,” the Leader said on Friday.

“Fighting against this despotic regime is fighting against oppression and terrorism. And this is a collective responsibility,” Ayatollah Khamenei added. 

The Leader voiced confidence that the downward movement of the Zionist regime has already started and “it will never stop”.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the issue of Palestine continues to be the most important and active issue for the Islamic Ummah collectively.

He said the policies of the oppressive and cruel capitalism “have driven a people out of their homes, their homeland and their ancestral roots and instead, it has installed a terrorist regime and has housed a foreign people therein.”

The following is the full text of Ayatollah Khamenei’s speech:

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Ab-al-Qassem Al-Mustafa Muhammad, upon his pure and immaculate household, upon his chosen companions and upon those who follow them until the Day of Judgment.

Palestine is the most important issue for the Islamic Ummah

The issue of Palestine continues to be the most important and active issue for the Islamic Ummah collectively. The policies of the oppressive and cruel capitalism have driven a people out of their homes, their homeland and their ancestral roots and instead, it has installed a terrorist regime and has housed a foreign people therein.

The logic behind the establishment of the Zionist regime

Can one find a logic weaker and shakier than that of the establishment of the Zionist regime? On the basis of their claim, the Europeans oppressed the Jews during the Second World War, therefore they believe that the oppression against the Jews should be revenged by displacing a nation in West Asia and by committing a horrible massacre in that country!

This is the logic which western governments have relied on with their wholehearted and blind support for the Zionist regime, thereby disproving all their false claims about human rights and democracy. It has been 70 years now that they have been sticking with this laughable and at the same time tragic story and every now and then, they add a new chapter to it.

Fighting against the Zionist regime is a collective responsibility

Since the first day, the Zionists turned the usurped Palestine into a terrorist base. Israel is not a country, rather it is a terrorist camp against the Palestinian nation and other Muslim nations. Fighting against this despotic regime is fighting against oppression and terrorism. And this is a collective responsibility.

Weakness and discord in the Islamic Ummah prepared the ground for the usurpation of Palestine

Another noteworthy point is that although that the usurping regime was established in 1948, the ground for occupying that sensitive Islamic region had been prepared years before that. Those specific years coincided with the active interference of westerners in Islamic countries with the purpose of establishing secularism and excessive and blind nationalism and also with the goal of installing despotic governments who were infatuated with or controlled by the West.

Studying those events in Iran, Turkey and Arab countries stretching from West Asia to North Africa reveals this bitter truth that weakness and discord in the Islamic Ummah paved the way for the disastrous usurpation of Palestine, allowing the world of arrogance to deliver that blow to the Islamic Ummah.

Westerners and Easterners colluding with one another over the matter of usurping Palestine

It is instructive that at that time, the capitalism and communism camps colluded with the rich Zionists. It was the English who masterminded the plot and who persisted in it and then, Zionist capitalists executed it with their money and weapons. The Soviet Union too was one of the first governments that officially recognized the establishment of that illegitimate regime and later on dispatched a large number of Jews to that area.

The usurping regime was actually an outcome of that situation in the world of Islam on the one hand, and of a European plot, invasion and transgression, on the other.

In the present time, the balance has been tipped in favor of the world of Islam

Today, the situation in the world is not like those days. We should keep this reality within sight. Today, the balance of power has swung in favor of the world of Islam. Various political and social incidents in Europe and in the United States have laid bare the weaknesses and the deep structural, managerial and moral conflicts among westerners. The electoral events in the US and the notoriously scandalous failures of the hubristic and arrogant managers in that country, the unsuccessful one-year fight against the pandemic in the US and Europe and the embarrassing incidents that ensued, and also the recent political and social instabilities in the most important European countries are all signs of the downward movement of the western camp.

On the other hand, the growth of the Resistance forces in the most sensitive Islamic regions, the development of their defensive and offensive capabilities, their growth of self-awareness, motivation and hope in Muslim nations, the increasing tendency to follow Islamic and Quranic slogans and the growth of independence and self-reliance in nations are auspicious signs of a better future.

The necessity for Muslim countries to cooperate with one another on the pivot of Palestine and Quds

In this auspicious future, cooperation between Muslim countries should be a main and fundamental goal and this does not seem unlikely. The pivot around which this cooperation turns is the issue of Palestine–the entirety of that country–and the fate of Holy Quds. This is the same truth that guided the enlightened heart of the great Imam Khomeini (may God bestow mercy upon him) towards the announcement of International Quds Day on the last Friday of Ramadan.

Cooperation between Muslims around the pivot of Holy Quds is an absolute nightmare for the Zionists and for their American and European advocates. The failed project called “The Deal of the Century” and the effort to normalize the relations between a few weak Arab governments and the Zionist regime were desperate attempts to run away from that nightmare.

I tell you with confidence: These attempts will not get them anywhere. The downward movement of the Zionist enemy has started and it will not stop moving downward.

The decisive factors in the future: The continued activities of the Resistance in the occupied lands and Muslims’ support for the Palestinian mujahids

There are two determining factors in the future: First and foremost is the continued activities of resistance in the Palestinian lands and the strengthening of the line of jihad and martyrdom and second, global support, on the part of governments and Muslim nations throughout the world, for the Palestinian mujahids.

All of us–government officials, intellectuals, religious scholars, political parties and groups, the brave youths and people of various social backgrounds–should determine our position in this public movement and play our part.

This is what nullifies the enemy’s plots and it will be a millennial manifestation of this ayah: “Or do they intend a plot? But those who defy Allah are themselves involved in a plot” [The Holy Quran, 52: 42], and “And Allah has full power and control over His affairs, but most among mankind do not know” [The Holy Quran, 12: 21].

I also wish to address the Arab youth in their own language…

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Greetings be upon all liberated individuals in the Arab world, in particular Arab youth, and greetings be upon the resistant people of Palestine and Quds and the defenders in Masjid al-Aqsa.

Greetings be upon the martyrs of Resistance and the large number of the mujahids who laid down their lives on this path, in particular martyr Sheikh Ahmed Yasin, martyr Sayyid Abbas Musawi, martyr Fathi Shaqaqi, martyr Imad Moughniyah, martyr Abdul-Aziz Rantisi, martyr Abu-Mahdi al-Muhandis and finally, the most prominent personality among the martyrs of Resistance, martyr Qassem Soleimani. Even after their fruitful and blessed life, with their martyrdom, each of these personalities exerted a deep impact on the Resistance.

The endeavors of Palestinians and the pure blood of the Resistance martyrs have managed to hold up this auspicious flag and to increase the internal power of Palestinian jihad by a hundred times. One day, the Palestinian youth used to defend themselves by throwing stones, but today, they respond to enemy attacks with precision missiles.

Palestine and Quds has been described in the Holy Quran as the “Holy Land”. It has been tens of years now that the most impure and malicious human beings have been occupying this pure land: they are devils who massacre honorable human beings and then they confess to it with complete shamelessness. They are racists who have been harassing, for more than 70 years, the main owners of the land by murdering, looting, imprisoning and torturing them, but, thank God, they have not been able to break their willpower.

Palestine is alive and it continues to resist and it will finally overcome the malicious enemy with God’s assistance. Holy Quds and the entire Palestine belongs to those people [the Palestinians] and they will regain its possession again: “Nor is that for Allah any great matter.” [The Holy Quran, 14:20].

All Muslim governments and nations are responsible towards Palestine, but the Palestinians themselves are the pivot of the jihad and their population reaches about 14 million people inside and outside the land. The unity and the unanimous willpower of those people will work wonders.

Today, unity is the biggest weapon for the Palestinians

The enemies of Palestinian unity are the Zionist regime, the US and some other political powers, but if unity is not shattered from inside the Palestinian society itself, the extrinsic enemies will not be able to do anything.

The pivot of this unity should be national jihad and lack of trust in the enemies. The main enemies of the Palestinians-the US, England and vicious Zionists-should not be used as a source of support for Palestinian politics.

All Palestinians–including the Palestinians in Gaza, in Quds, in the West Bank, in 1948 lands and even the ones living in refugee camps–form a single unit and they should adopt the strategy of coalescence. Every part should defend another part and when under pressure, they should utilize the tools at their disposal.

Today, hope of achieving victory is stronger than ever. Today, the balance of power has swung in favor of the Palestinians. The Zionist enemy has become weaker year after year while its army, which used to describe itself as “the army which will never be defeated”, has turned into “an army which will never taste victory” after its debacle in the 33-day war in Lebanon and its experiences in 22-day and 8-day wars. As for its political condition, it has been forced to hold four elections in the space of two years. In terms of security as well, it continuously tastes defeat. Moreover, the increasing desire among Jews to emigrate from that country has become a source of embarrassment for that overconfident regime. Its serious endeavor to normalize relations with a few Arab countries, with the assistance of the US, is another sign of the decline of that regime. Of course, this will not help that regime in any way either. Tens of years ago, it established relations with Egypt, but since then, it has become much weaker and much more vulnerable. Therefore, will the normalization of relations with a few weak and small countries be able to help that regime? Of course, those countries will not benefit from the relations either, as the Zionist regime will transgress against their properties and their land and it will promote corruption and insecurity in their countries.

Of course, these truths should not make others forget about their heavy duty. Muslim and Christian ulama should announce the act of normalization as haraam from a religious perspective and intellectuals and liberated individuals should explain to everyone the results of this treachery, which is a stab in the back of Palestine.

Contrary to the downward movement of the regime, an increase in the capabilities of the camp of Resistance is a sign of a bright future: An increase in defensive and military power, self-sufficiency in building effective weapons, the self-confidence of mujahids, the increasing awareness of youth, the extension of the Resistance circle to the entire country of Palestine and beyond, the recent uprising of youth in defending Masjid al-Aqsa and the simultaneous promotion of the Palestinian nation’s spirit of jihad and innocence among public opinion in many parts of the world.

The logic behind the Palestinian cause, which has been registered in the United Nations documents, is a progressive and attractive logic. Palestinian warriors can bring up the idea of holding a referendum with the participation of the main inhabitants of Palestine. The referendum will determine the political system of the country and the main inhabitants, including the displaced Palestinians, no matter what their ethnicity and religion are, will participate in it. That political system will bring back the displaced [Palestinians] and will determine the fate of the foreigners inhabiting there.

This demand is based on the common democracy accepted in the whole world and no one can question its progressiveness.

The Palestinian fighters should continue their legitimate and moral fight against the usurping regime until it is forced to give in to this demand.

Move forward in the Name of God and know that: “Allah will certainly aid those who aid His cause” [The Holy Quran, 22: 40].

Greetings be upon you and Allah’s mercy

Sayyed Nasrallah: Resistance Growing Stronger, We Won’t Tolerate Any Israeli Adventure

Marwa Haidar

Stressing that the Axis of Resistance has been growing stronger while the Zionist entity is witnessing many rifts, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah warned the Israeli enemy against committing any folly during a maneuver  in the coming days.

Delivering a speech via Al-Manar on the occasion of International Al-Quds Day, Sayyed Nasrallah saluted Palestinian people for their steadfastness in face of continuous Israeli attacks.

Sayyed Nasrallah explored points of strength within the Axis of Resistance, noting that Iran has overcome the threat of war as all US and Israeli options against the Islamic Republic have failed.

His eminence also said that the war in Syria has been over, noting that several Arab states are contacting Damascus.

“We have overcome the stage where our front is targeted, and this is a source of concern to the Israeli enemy.

On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Zionist entity has been witnessing several rifts including the internal political crisis, the revive of Resistance spirit among Palestinian people and the emergence of Gaza to be a part of the equation of Resistance and West Bank Resistance against the Israeli enemy.

On the issue of border demarcation, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah’s stance.

“The party who decides in this regard is the Lebanese state. The government here bears historical responsibility to defend our country’s rights.”

COVID-19 Infection?

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech by reassuring his supporters that he is not a COVID-19 patient, noting that the cough he had was due to a tracheal disease.

His eminence was responding to speculations circulated after he repeatedly coughed during a religious sermon earlier on Wednesday.

International Al-Quds Day

Talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Al-Quds Day is an ideological, religious, humanitarian and moral issue.

“It’s about the absolute right of the Palestinian people that will never change by place or time.”

His eminence saluted Palestinian people for sticking to their right in Al-Quds, noting that such steadfastness gives legitimacy to the Axis of Resistance as well as to all forms of support this front offer to the Palestinian people.

“Palestinians did not abandon their land. Despite all these years they are still sticking to their rights. What we have been seeing in the latest weeks proves this. Unarmed Palestinians in Damascus Gate and in Al-Quds are heroically confronting armed Israeli forces.”

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the Palestinian Resistance in Gaza for getting into the scene of the confrontation in Al-Quds, describing this development as important and in favor of Palestinians in Al-Quds.

“The Israeli enemy had been previously keen to separate between Gaza and Al-Quds. Hereby, I call upon Palestinian factions in Gaza to go ahead with this decision which falls in favor of Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Powerful Iran

Hezbollah S.G. described Iran as the most powerful state in the Axis of Resistance, despite all US and Israeli attempts to topple its establishment.

“All US and Israeli schemes against the Islamic Republic were foiled and Iran has overcome the threat of war. Ira has already retaliated to Israeli attacks on Natanz nuclear facility by enriching uranium up to 60 %, and this what scares the Zionist entity a lot.”

Hitting back at those who say that Iran allies must be concerned in case a rapprochement takes place with Saudi Arabia, Sayyed Nasrallah said the Islamci Republic and throughout 4 years did not abandon its allies and has been keen to preserve the national interests of their countries.

“Those who must be concerned are US allies,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Syria, Iraq and Yemen

Sayyed Nasrallah touched upon the situation in Syria, Iraq and Yemen as he stressed that the Axis of Resistance emerged victorious and more powerful.

“The war in Syria is over and several Arab states are reportedly having contacts with Damascus now. In Iraq, attempts to revive ISIL have failed so far.”

“Elsewhere in Yemen, Yemeni people are more steadfast and victorious in the seventh year of the Saudi aggression. The game-changing capabilities of Yemeni army which have been advancing make the Axis of Resistance more powerful.”

‘Israel’ Weakened

Sayyed Nasrallah then talked about rifts within the Zionist entity, noting that one of the prominent aspects of this rift is the internal political crisis.

“There is a real leadership crisis in the Zionist entity, and such crises indicate the extent of weakness which this regime has reached. Some Israeli analysts say that a civil war in the Zionist entity is possible.”

His eminence also cited when a Syrian anti-aircraft missile hit an area near Dimona nuclear site in the Zionist entity earlier last month.

“This incident proved failure of the Israeli defense systems. In case of a war in the region, would the Israeli defense systems be capable to intercept thousands of rockets?”

Sayyed Nasrallah noted, meanwhile, that the stampede in Mount Meron showed how the Israeli home front is not ready to deal with such situations in case of a real war.

“Zionists are worried about the revival of operations in West Bank and the emergence of Gaza to be part of the equation of confrontations in Al-Quds.”

His eminence added that failure of Israeli strategies on Iran is also one of the rifts within the Zionist entity.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the Israeli forces have been lacking morale, and this problem is prompting the Zionist army to intensify drills.

Israeli Drill

Sayyed Nasrallah warned the Israeli enemy against committing any folly during a drill that will start on Sunday.

“In light of this situation we are on high alert and we will closely monitor the enemy movements.”

“Any folly or any attempt to change the rule of engagement is an adventure that we won’t tolerate at all.”

In the end of his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the responsibility is to defend Al-Quds with all means, calling for more cooperation and patience among powers in the Axis of Resistance.

Sayyed Nasrallah: The Axis of Resistance Shapes Region’s Future, ‘Israelis’ To be Expelled By Force

By Staff

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech in an event held marking the International al-Quds Day.

The event, dubbed “The United Platform”, was held virtually on Wednesday afternoon, in which the Islamic Resistance leader emphasized that the weeks-old al-Quds uprising has displayed the bravery of the al-Quds youths in the field and against the brutal Zionist machine.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed to that the West Bank interaction and the calculated military intervention from the Gaza side is a very important development.

His Eminence further reiterated the resistance’s commitment, belief and adherence to its responsibilities towards the Palestinian cause, and called for more presence and suitable expression of hones and brave stances towards al-Quds and Palestine.

Additionally, Sayyed Nasrallah labelled the recent events as ones that stress the Palestinian people’s adherence to their rights and not abandoning any of them, adding that the latest heroic operation in the West Bank is a form of this insistence.

“The young Palestinian generations are still carrying their blood and souls, and are ready to sacrifice in the path of the coming victory.”

The Hezbollah leader, meanwhile, noted that the solidness of the Axis of Resistance, and its ability to overcome the most dangerous phase that targeted its presence in the region makes it necessary to raise responsibilities towards the Ummah’s cause.

“The Axis of Resistance is serious, honest, and true, unlike all previous words of Arab regimes,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, emphasizing that it is integrated, in solidarity, cooperation and coordination “in which we can feel that al-Quds is nearer.”

His Eminence also noted that “while we can witness the solidness of the axis of resistance despite the wars, blockade, and provocation, we also witness the collapse of other axes that had been leading wars against resistance in the region.”

In the same context, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed to the deep crises within the Zionist entity that started to surface strongly, while many Zionist analysts voice concerns regarding the survival of the enemy’s entity amid all such crises.

“Normalization should raise the voice of the Ummah’s free resistance, as it increases its responsibility to confront,” His Eminence said, noting that the normalizing countries’ have never been part of the battle so that their exit would never affect the track of this battle.

Additionally, Sayyed Nasrallah said that today’s responsibility is to present all kinds of support to the Palestinian resistance, and to strengthen the Axis of Resistance as it is this axis that shapes the future of the region.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that the Zionists themselves know very well that this entity has no future, and it has a very short time to remain, and this is why they are wasting their efforts and blood in vain.

“The reasonable words to address all occupiers and invaders is that they have to leave the land they have occupied, otherwise they will be returned by force or by any other mean to the places they came from.”

At the end of his remarks, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that as long as the Palestinian people are sticking to their rights and struggle, none of the defeatists will be able to abort the Palestinian cause because the resistance of this people is a proof to every Arab and Muslim, and every free human in the world [that they can achieve their goals].

Sayyed Nasrallah: Palestine from River to Sea Belongs to Palestinians, Our Real Battle is with the US

By Zeinab Essa

Beirut – Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Friday a televised speech in which he tackled Al-Quds International Day.

According to Sayyed Nasrallah, “We meet today to commemorate an essential event announced by the late Imam Khomeini after the triumph of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.”

“25 May victory formed a great victory and a gate towards the liberation of Al-Quds,” he said, emphasizing and recalling “a set basis that have to do with International Al-Quds Day.”

He further went on to say that he “will talk about the things that have changed from last year to today.”

“Palestine from the sea to the river belongs to the Palestinian people and they must return to it. We in Lebanon have grown up with this position since ancient times,” His Eminence mentioned, reiterating that “Palestine belongs to the Palestinian people, and it must return to the Palestinian people.”

In addition, the Resistance Leader confirmed that ““Israel” is an illegal, usurped and occupying entity.”

“Those settlers who came to occupied Palestine should return to their countries. Our stance on Palestine is religious and ethical, not only humanitarian. Thus, it can’t be changed,” he stated.

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say: “We never said that we wanted to throw anyone into the sea. Those who flocked to Palestine must leave. Whoever bets that through military wars, sanctions, starvation, or misleading, that he can change our position is wrong and must change his mind.”

His Eminence underlined that “The responsibility of regaining Palestine is mainly that of the Palestinian people but it also the responsibility of the nation as Al-Mighty God will ask us about it on The Judgement Day.”

“What is happening today in the region isn’t limited to youthful enthusiasm. It is an ideological and intellectual aspect that is inherited from one generation to another,” he confirmed, noting that “The truth does not change with time, and what had been taken by theft does not become a legitimate property with time, even if the whole world recognized the legitimacy of the thief.”

In addition Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that “Liberation cannot be achieved in one, two or three years. It could take generations. The lengthy battle should not be a reason for despair because it will end with victory.”

On the same level, Hezbollah Secretary General declared that “The real battle was and still is with successive American governments, and “Israel” is the main front.”

“The current generation must not surrender or legitimize the “Israeli” occupation,” he said, wondering “In Lebanon and Palestine, who supports “Israel” with arms, technology, information, and financially? It’s the USA that is providing such great support.”

According to His Eminence, “The US is waging wars to establish and protect “Israel”. The US has made providing services to “Israel” as a gateway to get closer to it. Our real battle is to confront the US.”

“Identifying the real enemy is an essential necessity to assess achievements and to read opportunities and strategic environment,” he mentioned, noting that “Through the ‘Deal of the Century’ scheme, “Israel” is moving towards full control and total annexation of all occupied Arab lands in Palestine, Lebanon and Syria.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also emphasized that “There are Arab and Islamic regimes that are not concerned with the confrontation with the “Israeli” entity. The real enemy that we’re fighting is the US, although we are not shooting at each other.”

“There are Arab countries that support the American-“Israeli” axis and sometimes provide great services to it. There are Arab countries that help and support “Israel”. They even deal sharply and negatively with the Palestinian people,” he added.

In addition, His Eminence underscored that “In the American-“Israeli” view, Iran is the center and the most targeted country in the axis of the resistance. When Trump withdrew from the nuclear agreement and returned to imposing sanctions on Iran, he was betting on an angry popular reaction in the Iranian internal front.”

“The “Israelis” betted a lot on the American withdrawal from the nuclear agreement and tightening the sanctions on Iran. Today, all the readings conclude that this bet has failed,” the Resistance Leader stressed.

In parallel, he said: “Among all failed “Israeli” bets is betting on a US war on Iran.”

Sayyed Nasrallah further unveiled that ““Israel” has wagered on terrorist groups to confront Iran, but it also failed. “Israel” has betted even on Covid-19, but Iran will exit from this test stronger. The Islamic Republic has triumphed in the coronavirus test. The WHO has admitted that the health system in Iran is among the strongest in the world.”

Moving to Iraq, His Eminence mentioned that “What is happening in Iraq is a very big shift in favor of the axis of resistance. Preserving Iraq and its power comes in contradiction with the Zionist scheme, and “Israel” was one of the strongest inciters against Iraq.”

According to His Eminence, Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say: “It is the responsibility of the Iraqi brothers and sisters to set their country in its place in confronting the “Israeli” enemy.”

Regarding the Syrian front, Sayyed Nasrallah believed that “What happened in Syria is a major victory for the axis of resistance, given the fact that goals that the “Israelis” and Americans set in it have been failed. Syria thwarted the global war that was launched against it and brought down the American-“Israeli” scheme seeking to topple the Syrian state”

On Yemen, the Resistance Leader confirmed that “The war in Yemen is an American and “Israeli” one. The failure of the war on Yemen has had a major impact on the ‘deal of the century’. “Israel” supports the war on Yemen and is assisting it with technology.”

“Had Muhammad Bin Salman achieved the victory in Yemen, he would have turned his victory to impose the ‘deal of the century’ on the Palestinians,” he emphasized.

Moving to the Lebanese arena, Sayyed Nasrallah viewed that “Over the past year, we find that the “Israelis” have been betting more on internal developments in Lebanon than on their strength in the face of the resistance.”

““Israel” is cautious and worried about Lebanon and it fears going to war,” he said, pointing out that ““Israel” admits that it has failed to prevent the resistance force from growing in Lebanon.”

His Eminence declared that “Even the mutual deterrence is a victory for Lebanon,” warning that ““Israel” is now betting on the economic situation in Lebanon in order to turn the environment of resistance against it through sanctions. The “Israelis” are still betting on sanctions against Lebanon.”

According to him, “The American conditions do not end, whether with regard to the resistance’s arms or with regard to the demarcation of the maritime borders with the “Israeli” enemy’s entity.”

He also cautioned that “The countries that have surrendered are now suffering from hunger, and we can, through our capabilities and reason, not die of hunger and preserve our sovereignty.”

However, His Eminence assured that “We in Lebanon are strong, we are not between two options, and we are able, through our capabilities, to overcome the crisis.”

On the Palestinian developments, Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that ““Israel” has wagered on inciting the people of Gaza on the resistance so that it would prevent the expansion of its capabilities, but it failed to do so. “Israel” is taking advantage of Trump’s remaining time in the White House because this constitutes a historic opportunity for it. “Israel” is benefiting from Trump’s presence so it’s stepping up its steps to get rid of the two-state solution and to move towards the establishment of a Jewish state.”

Meanwhile, the Resistance Leader condemned some Arab governments’ move towards the normalization with the Zionist entity.

In this context, he called “The Arab and Islamic peoples to prevent the move towards normalization with all their power. The normalization is a failure. It is a humiliating and forbidden path that must stop.”

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah announced that “The martyrdom of the great leader Qassem Soleimani was a blow and a loss to the axis of the Resistance. However, his blood will firmly support the axis of the resistance.”

However, he predicted that “The horizon before us calls for optimism, and what is required today is to enhance and expand each corner in the axis of the resistance.”

“Options for direct military wars by the Zionists and the Americans may be excluded. However, their priorities are sanctions,” His Eminence warned, recalling that “The rules of engagement established by the legendary steadfastness in the July War with the “Israeli” entity are still in place.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah advised “Israel” not to bet that Hezbollah might be preoccupied with domestic situations. “We are going to a new international and regional scene, and new threats may arise. Experts are saying that the US has lost its leadership position in the world, and the coronavirus pandemic is an example.”

“Today where are Netanyahu, Trump and Mohammed bin Salman,” he questioned, pointing out that “Each of them has his own dilemma and this axis can be defeated.”

Reiterating the call to the Lebanese to be strict in fighting Coronavirus people, His Eminence urged all people in Lebanon to show further commitment and responsibility in the face of coronavirus.

“The high number of infections in Corona threatens the health system in Lebanon,” Sayyed Nasrallah cautioned.

Quds Day: Reminder of Palestinian struggle

By Salman Parviz

May 21, 2020 – 14:5

Originating in Iran with the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as Quds Day with the aim of forging unity among the Muslims and Arab nations so that they will unanimously express their backing for the Palestinian nation each year.

To mark the occasion amid the novel coronavirus pandemic the International Quds Day Conference was held online May 18 and 19.

This year’s Quds Day has special significance in the denunciation of the so-called “Deal of the Century” and proposed annexation of Jordan Valley and occupied West Bank, a display of shocking disregard for international law. The deal has given green light to Israeli sovereignty on the illegal settlements built since the 1967 war, which is now colonized by more than 600,000 Israeli Jews.

Protests in the region on May 15 marked the 72nd anniversary of the Nakba or “catastrophe”, when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced into exile following creation of the Zionist state in 1948. It was another opportunity to denounce the policies of U.S. President D. Trump’s ultra-right policies and alliance with Israel.

While successive U.S. presidents and administrations have supported Israel, none has done as much in such a short time to embolden its right-wing settler-led colonialist government than Trump whose administration recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017, stalling the road map for a two-state solution.

Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner worked closely with former U.S. special envoy for the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, to design the “Deal of the Century”. The plan was announced in January after several months of delay. What Palestinians saw as a “surrender note”, referred in one of the Tehran Times’ headlines as the “Highway to Hell” and what many consider “Heist of the Century”.

After three inconclusive elections in the Zionist state a three-year power-sharing agreement was announced in April which allows Netanyahu first bite at leading before handing power to Benny Gantz. At the heart of that agreement is the illegal annexation of large swathes of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley and the Northern Dead Sea.

Israel is 21st century’s Middle East version of apartheid-era South Africa, the only remaining apartheid state where Palestinians remain, at best, second class citizens in Israel, under occupation in Gaza, East Jerusalem and West Bank.

Of historical significance is the plight of residents of Gaza Strip. In January 2006, Hamas won a sweeping majority in the Palestinian Legislative Council elections ending more than 40 years of domination by Fatah, the political faction built by the late Yasir Arafat.

Following the elections U.S., EU and Canada cut off funding to the Palestinian Authority despite Canada having helped to facilitate and monitor the elections. Worth mentioning is that the Israel-Hezbollah conflict ensued during the summer of 2006.

Gaza Strip was put under Israeli and Egyptian blockade in 2007 when the Hamas resistance movement started controlling the enclave. As a result of Israel’s stifling measures the UN has warned in the past that the Gaza Strip would become “uninhabitable” by 2020.

More than two million people cramped up in a 362 square kilometer area, deprived of their fundamental human rights including freedom of movement. Under strict air, sea and ground siege imposed by Israel and Egypt for the last thirteen years, Gaza Strip is considered the largest open-air prison in the world.

This prison verdict is backed by international community, mainly the Western powers and the U.S. During the siege the coastal enclave has undergone three major Israeli offensives.

Today around 6.5 million Palestinians live abroad as refugees or members of the diaspora.

Quds day is a reminder of the plight of Palestinian people.

لم يكن مجرد يوم للقدس بل خطّة

ناصر قنديل

بعد أربعة عقود ونيّف على إعلان الإمام الخميني ليوم القدس، يظهر بوضوح أن الأمر لم يكن تخليداً ليوم شهيد اسمه القدس، بل كان إحياء لوجدان نابض بالحياة، لينهض معه الملايين في الساحات والميادين، ضمن خطة تريد إعادة القدس إلى واجهة أحداث العالم، وتجعل حريتها أقرب فأقرب حتى يتحقق اليوم الموعود، وها نحن مع الإحياءات المنتشرة في مئات المدن عبر العالم ومشاركة الملايين فيها يهتفون حتى تبح الحناجر لحريتها وقدسيتها، نعلم أن شروط تحرير القدس تنضج وتكتمل تباعاً.

شكلت المقاومة في لبنان التي ولدت قيادتها من رحم فكر الإمام ورعايته وحضانته، أولى مداميك الخطة، حتى صلب عود هذه المقاومة التي تربّى شبابها وبناتها على شعار “زحفاً زحفاً نحو القدس” وهم يقاتلون لتحرير جنوب لبنان، ويوماً بعد يوم صارت هذه المقاومة الرقم الصعب في معادلات المنطقة، وانتقلت من حرب إلى حرب لتخرج أشدّ قوة وصلابة وأكثر جهوزية واقتداراً، حتى وصفها قادة كيان الاحتلال بأنها مصدر المأزق الاستراتيجي والوجودي لكيانهم.

شكّل التوجه نحو كل مشروع مقاومة في فلسطين، بنهج عابر للعقائد والأحزاب والمنظمات والتجمعات، محوراً موازياً في الخطة، فاحتضنت كل الجماعات الملتزمة بخيار المقاومة، وصولاً ليوم تحرّرت فيه غزة كما تحرّر جنوب لبنان، وصارت مناعتها بعضاً من مناعته، وتوازن الردع الذي يحميها شقيقاً لتوازن الردع القائم فيه، وبلغت صواريخها جدار تل أبيب، وصار العجز العسكري لجيش الاحتلال من مسلمات أي تقدير موقف على مستوى المنطقة، وبالرغم من الانقسام الفلسطيني تكفلت صفقة القرن بتوحيد المواقف وإسقاط الأوهام، بينما تكفلت صواريخ المقاومة وقوتها بتفكيك وحدة الكيان ودفعه للتشظي السياسي الذي ظهر أزمة سياسيّة ممتدة لسنوات.

بالتوازي كانت ركيزة الخطة تقوم على تدعيم التحالف العميق مع سورية، سنداً وظهيراً للمقاومات، وكان تقديم الدعم لها في وجه محاولات إسقاطها الهادفة لإسقاط مشروع القدس تتمة الخطة، لأنها رفضت التموضع على ضفاف الخذلان العربي، ومع انتصار سورية صارت القدس أقرب، وفي سورية قيادة مقاومة بوصلتها فلسطين وجبهتها الجولان، وجيش مقاتل صانع انتصارات تاريخية، وشعب مؤمن بفلسطين وبقيادته وبتحالفات سورية التي صنعت نصرها، وبالتوازي أيضاً كان العراق الخارج من خراب الاحتلال واليمن الخارج من الهيمنة السعوديّة، والثلاثي السوري العراقي اليمني يصير رباعياً مع لبنان وخماسياً مع فلسطين، حيث يجد كيان الاحتلال نفسه مطوقاً من كل الجهات في أي حرب مقبلة.

إيران التي تواجه الحصار والعقوبات، لأنها تملك خطة الوصول إلى القدس، وتمسك بمفاتيحها، ولو قررت أن ترخي قبضتها لشرعنوا لها ملفها النووي غداً، ومنحت السيطرة على الخليج وحكامه ونفطه، لكنها إيران الإمامين الخميني والخامنئي، إيران التي نذرت خيرة قادتها للقدس وحملته مفتاحها واسمها، فصار أيقونة الثورة والجمهورية الجنرال قاسم سليماني شهيد القدس بمثل ما هو شهيد إيران وقوى المقاومة، ولأنها كذلك بقيت إيران تبني وتبني لأجل يوم مقبل للقدس يحفظه الإحياء المستديم لهذا اليوم. والمعادلة هي أن يوماً من أيام الإحياء سيكون يوم الدخول إلى القدس، فإن لم يكن هذا العام فقد يكون العام المقبل، والمهم أن يكون كل عام قد صار أقرب، وها هي إيران دولة عالمية عظمى تصعد إلى الفضاء بأقمارها الصناعية، وترسل ناقلات نفطها إلى سواحل فنزويلا تثبيتاً لحلف عالمي من أجل فلسطين، عشية يوم القدس، وقد أسست حلفاً عالمياً لمواجهة الهيمنة الأميركية يمتدّ من روسيا إلى الصين ومعهما عشرات دول العالم وحركات التحرّر.

سنة بعد سنة نكتشف كم أن يوم القدس كان تحديداً استباقياً لموعد اليوم الموعود لدخول القدس، وقد بدا واضحاً في بال الإمام، فهو يعلم أنه في آخر جمعة من شهر رمضان سيدخل المقاومون القدس لتحريرها، لكنه لا يعلم أي عام، تاركاً هذا التحديد للمقاومين، ولسان حاله للمقاومين لقد اخترت لكم اليوم الأنسب والأعظم وعليكم أنتم أن تختاروا السنة المناسبة. وعاماً بعد عام تصير المعادلة إن لم يكن الدخول هذا العام فلنعمل ليكون العام المقبل، لذلك نتعلم أن نلقي من اليوم تحية القدس وسلام القدس وصباح القدس ومساء القدس، كي نكون جاهزين يوم نلاقيها لإلقاء التحية والسلام وإحياء الصباح والمساء.

يوم القدس العالمي..دعوة لإنعاش الذاكرة في زمن التهويد والتطبيع

د.خليل حمدان

في الخامس عشر من شهر آب 1979، وفي العام الأول لانتصار الثورة الإسلامية الإيرانية أعلن قائد الثورة الإسلامية الإيرانية الإمام الراحل السيد روح الله الموسوي الخميني، يوم القدس العالميّ، إذ دعا شعوب العالم لإحياء هذا اليوم في آخر جمعة من شهر رمضان المبارك، في محاولة حثيثة لإنعاش ذاكرة الشعوب بعد محاولات محوها من قبل حكامٍ لأنظمة استبدادية لا تقيم للقيم وزناً، ولا للمقدّسات حرمة. إنّ مواكبة القادة في إيران الثورة للقضية الفلسطينية، ليس مستجدّاً، بل تشكّلت في أسباب هذه الثورة وأهدافها. فمعظم الثورات اندلعت في العالم لأسباب محلّية لمواجهة طاغيةٍ عاث في الأرض فساداً وأفقر العباد وأقفر البلاد، وقد تكون ميزة للثورة الإسلامية الإيرانية أنّ أسبابها ليست فقط داخلية على الرغم من وجود كلّ المبرّرات لاندلاعها، وما ظلم الشاه وجلاوزته إلا السبب الكافي. ولكن كان الاعتراض الأشدّ على شاه إيران، علاقته بالكيان الصهيوني الغاصب على حساب الشعب الفلسطيني والقدس. ففلسطين من اسباب الثورة. ومن هنا نجد أنّ أدبيّات قادة الثورة الإسلامية في إيران في كلّ مناسبة، ومن خلال مؤلّفات ومنشورات وتسجيلات، نجد أنّ الهمّ الأكبر لهذه الثورة نصرة القدس وفلسطين وشعب فلسطين، وهي ميزة من ميزاتها على الرغم من أنّها إسلامية، إلا أنّها لم تقسم العالم إلى ديار الكفر وديار الإيمان كما هي حال بعض الحركات الأخرى في العالم، بل ثبّتت علاقتها ومواقفها على أساس جبهة المظلومين في وجه الظالمين، أو جبهة المستضعفين في وجه المستكبرين. فلا تكفير ولا تنفير ولا فتن، بل وحدة من أجل العدالة لكل إنسان والانسان كلّه. وما دعم قضيّة الشعب الفنزويلّي والتضامن معه، إلا مصداق حيّ، وترجمة حقيقيّة لتلك الأسس والقناعات الراسخة لدى قادة هذه الثورة. وإن كانت مناسبة إحياء يوم القدس، حيث نستذكر من خلالها القادة والشهداء الأبرار، الذين قضوا ومضوا على هذا الدرب، ولا يمكن ان يستقيم الكلام عن تحرير القدس من دون أن نستذكر قائدنا الامام السيد موسى الصدر. ويبقى الإمام السيد موسى الصدر (أعاده الله وأخويه) علامةً فارقةً في هذه المسيرة، حيث صدح باسم الله ثائراً وقائداً: “إنّ القدس هي قبلتنا وملتقى قيمنا، وتجسّد وحدتنا ومعراج رسالتنا، إنّها قدسنا وقضيتنا”.

وإنّ الإمام الصدر كان يعتبر أنّ القدس وفلسطين هما المكوّن الجمعيّ للعرب والمسلمين والمسيحيين والأحرار والعالم.

على درب الإمام مضت أفواج المقاومة اللبنانية أمل، وكان الشهداء في مواجهة الاحتلال الصهيوني. على درب الإمام الصدر، ما زالت هذه القضية حاضرةً في فكرنا وقلبنا وعقلنا. ومع الأخ الرئيس نبيه برّي، الذي في أكثر من مناسبة حذّر من عبث العابثين المحاولين لإسقاط القدس، داعياً ومطالباً بإغلاق السفارات العربية في واشنطن، وإنّ محاولات إسقاط القدس هي بداية، بل نهاية معظم العواصم العربية بالضربة القاضية.

في يوم القدس العالمي نستذكر شهيداً كبيراً عاش للّه واستشهد في سبيله، أحد كبار المسؤولين في حركتنا، الشهيد القائد مصطفى شمران، إذ تشهد له مواقع النضال والجهاد في لبنان وإيران. نستذكره مستعرضين خريطة آماله وآلامه حين قال: “أسعد لحظات حياتي، سقوط شاه إيران، وأكبر أمل عندي تحرير القدس، وأكبر ألم عندي، تغييب الإمام السيد موسى الصدر”.

أجل ستبقى القدس المؤشّر الحقيقي للجهاد والنضال، وهي البوصلة لمواجهة الظلم الأكبر المتمثّل باحتلال فلسطين. يوم القدس العالمي يجسّد وحدتنا بتعبير الإمام الصدر، هي مناسبة لتوجيه تحيّة لجميع الشهداء والجرحى والأسرى والقادة، والمستمرّين في حفظ هذه المسيرة من فلسطين والى كلّ العالم.

تحيّة إلى الإمام القائد السيد موسى الصدر الذي دفع ثمن إخلاصه للقدس وكامل القضية الفلسطينية، فأخفوه وأخويه خدمةً للمشروع الفتنوي والمعتدي، المتمثّل بالاحتلال الصهيوني، وعلى يد المجرم صنيعة “إسرائيل” معمّر القذافي.

أجل، ينبغي أن تبقى القدس حاضرةً لدى الأجيال على مساحة العالم، فإن كان رهان الصهاينة على مقولة أنّ الكبار يموتون والصغار ينسون، فإنّ حفظ القدس وتحريرها على عاتق الأجيال المؤمنة، وذلك بتحرير الوعي وإنعاش الذاكرة في مواجهة تكبيل الوعي، حيث ما زالت أبواق إعلامية صفراء عربية وإسلامية، مدفوعة من أنظمة التطبيع والتهويد وذلك بتعميم اليأس بين الناس.

أجل، ينبغي أن تبقى القدس حاضرة وتتقدّم على ما سواها، لأنّ تهويدها لم يعُد احتمالاً في ظلّ إصرار الإدارة الأميركية بدعم الصهاينة بتصفية القضية الفلسطينية، أرضاً وحجراً وبشراً، من مقدّمات دعم الكيان الكامل وتغطية جرائمه، الى محاولة الإدارة الأميركية لحشد أوسع تأييد دولي لتنفيذ صفقة القرن. هناك الكثير ما يمكن قوله فيما لا تحتويه سطور، ولكن نورد ما يستنبطه تصريح السفير الأميركي لدى الاحتلال الإسرائيلي دايفيد فريدمان مؤخّراً: “ليس من المنطق أن تتنازل إسرائيل عن الخليل وبيت إيل، تماماً مثلما أنّ الولايات المتحدة لا يمكن أن تتنازل عن تمثال الحرّية”. وأضاف: “إنّ مسألة الإعلان عن ضمّ أجزاء من الضفة الغربية وغور الأردن ستكون مسألة أسابيع وستنتهي”. لعلّ القضية الفلسطينية تمرّ بأخطر مراحلها. فإن لم يستشعر البعض بخطر تهويد القدس وكلّ فلسطين، فإنّه يعيش في سبات عميق، وقد لا يفيد إن استُدرك الأمر بعد فوات الأوان. أليس السكوت على الظلم هو نوع من أنواع الظلم؟

يوم القدس يوم التأكيد على المقاومة ودورها واستمرارها. يوم وحدة الموقف لجميع القوى الفلسطينية واللبنانية والعربية والإسلامية والمسيحية في العالم، على قاعدة أنّ “إسرائيل” شرّ مطلق والتعامل معها حرام، و”إسرائيل” غدّة سرطانية.

في العام الحادي والأربعين ليوم القدس العالميّ

 رامز مصطفى ابو عماد

رامز مصطفى

في شهر رمضان المبارك من كلّ عام، وفي جمعته الأخيرة، شعبنا الفلسطيني كما سائر شعوب الأمة وأحرار العالم يحيون يوم القدس العالمي، الذي دعا إليه الإمام الخميني، رحمه الله، بعد أربعة أشهر من قيام الجمهورية الإسلامية في تموز من العام 1979، في نداء أراد منه:

1

ـ تحذير وتنبيه الأمة إلى ما يُخطط ويُراد للقدس من تهويد وسيطرة صهيونية على المدينة ومقدساتها الدينية. وفي ذلك رؤية استشرافية من قبل الإمام الخميني، رحمه الله.

2

ـ دعوة خالصة إلى شعوب الأمة من أجل توحيد كلمتها، كشعوب مستضعفة. والوقوف صفاً واحداً للدفاع عن القدس عاصمة فلسطين، وحشد إمكانياتها ومقدراتها لتحقيق هدف الدفاع والتحرير، من خلال إعلان ثورة الشعوب المستضعفة في وجه المستكبرين.

3

ـ الدعوة إلى عدم الاكتفاء على رفض سياسات الكيان وحركته الصهيونية، بل التحرك والنزول إلى الساحات والميادين للتعبير عن هذا الرفض، الذي يشكل في مجموعه الردّ على تلك السياسات الإجراميّة، وفي مقدّمتها الاستيلاء على القدس، بهدف حسم الصراع لصالح الكيان.

4

ـ تخطّي الحدود القطرية لأيّ بلد، أو أيّ شعب بعينه بمن فيهم الفلسطينيون، بهدف إعطاء القدس بعدها العالمي. لأنّ قضية القدس على وجه الخصوص، كما قضيتهم بالعموم لا تعني الشعب الفلسطيني، بل قضية الأمة وسائر الشعوب والقوى، التي ترفض هيمنة قوى الاستعمار والاستكبار والرأسمالية العالمية، وفي مقدّمتهم الولايات المتحدة الأميركية، وقاعدتهم المتقدمة الكيان الصهيوني.

5

ـ الردّ الحاسم على حالة التردّي التي تعيشها الأمة المُتخلِّفة أنظمتها عن نصرتها للحق الفلسطيني والدفاع عن حقوقه وعناوينه الثابتة والمشروعة، والذوْد عما تتعرض له القدس من تهويد وتغيير متعمّد لمعالمها الدينية والثقافية والتاريخية والديمغرافية. بل هي اليوم في أغلبها تهرول للتطبيع مع الكيان على حساب الحق الفلسطيني وحقوق الأمة، وحجتهم الواهية والمغرضة أنّ الجمهورية الإسلامية الإيرانية تتهدّدهم.

6

ـ التأكيد على أنّ قضية القدس هي الخط الفاصل بين قوى الخير وقوى الشر. لذلك يجب إبقاء الصراع مفتوحاً، إلى أن تتحقق هزيمة قوى الشر والبغي والعدوان ومشروعهم الصهيوأميركي على أرض فلسطين وفي عموم المنطقة، بل وفي العالم أجمع.

يكتسب يوم القدس هذا العام أهمية إضافية، لما تتعرّض له مدينة القدس من عمليات تهويد متمادية لم يسبق لها مثيل، يشنّها قادة الكيان الصهيوني في معركة مفتوحة من أجل حسم هويتها الثقافية والدينية والتاريخية والعمرانية والديمغرافية لصالح كيانهم المغتصب. حيث تأتي تلك السياسات الصهيونية أولاً، في ظلّ ما تسمّى بـ “صفقة القرن” التي أعلن عنها الرئيس الأميركي في كانون الثاني من العام الحالي، واليوم تُستكمل فصولها من خلال حكومة الرأسين لنتنياهو وغانتس، في ضمّ واسع للمستوطنات في الضفة والسيطرة على منطقة غور الأردن وشمال البحر الميت. وثانياً، بالتزامن مع مضيّ 72 عاماً على نكبة الشعب الفلسطيني في الخامس عشر من أيار عام 1948، حيث يؤكد فيها شعبنا الفلسطيني على تمسكه وتصميمه على عودته إلى أرضه فلسطين مهما تعاظمت التحديات وكبرت التضحيات. وثالثاً، مع الذكرى العشرين لانتصار المقاومة في لبنان بقيادة حزب الله، الذي تمكن من دحر الاحتلال الصهيونيّ عن أرض الجنوب، من دون قيد أو شرط.

ونحن نحيي يوم القدس العالمي هذا العام، نفتقد وتفتقد فلسطين وعاصمتها القدس، شهيدها وقائد لوائها المجاهد الكبير اللواء قاسم سليماني. الذي أتى استشهاده في مرحلة بالغة الدقة، أحوج ما نكون إليه في معركة الصمود والتصدّي للهجمة الأميركيّة الصهيونيّة على أمتنا، بهدف إخضاعها لمشيئتهم ومشروعهم، الذي يتهاوى سريعاً في عموم المنطقة، على وقع ما تحقق ويتحقق من انتصارات في الميدان السوري، بفضل صمود الجيش السوري وحلفائه. ونحن نفتقد الشهيد الكبير القائد قاسم سليماني، نؤكد أننا سنبقى على عهدنا للشهيد وما تركه من أثر كبير وفعّال على تطوير قدرات وتوفير الإمكانيات لقوى المقاومة في فلسطين ولبنان والعراق واليمن، التي كان لها الدور الكبير والحاسم في صمودها وانتصارها.

بعد مرور 41 عاماً على النداء الذي أطلقه الإمام الخميني، رحمه الله، بإعلان يوم القدس العالمي، لا تزال الجمهورية الإسلامية الإيرانية ومرشد ثورتها سماحة الإمام القائد السيد علي الخامنئي، على التزامهم وتبنّيهم المطلق لقضية القدس عاصمة فلسطين والأمة. وتوفير كلّ أشكال الدعم والإسناد لها، على الرغم مما تعانيه إيران من حائجة الحصار والعقوبات غير المسبوقة التي تفرضها الإدارة الأميركية والدول الذيلية لها. إلاّ أنّ ذلك لن يؤثر على توجّهات والتزامات إيران اتجاه قضايا الأمة، والقضية الفلسطينية في مقدّمتها.

Imam Khamenei: There Is No Crime Equivalent to the Theft of Palestine, ’Israel’ to Be Uprooted

Imam Khamenei: There Is No Crime Equivalent to the Theft of Palestine, ’Israel’ to Be Uprooted

By Staff

Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei marked International al-Quds Day this year by referring to it as a smart announcement from late Imam Khomeini with smart innovation, which came to link Muslims with Palestine.

Imam Khamenei delivered the Quds Day Sermon with a plate behind him that read “We Will Pray in al-Quds”.

His Eminence urged the confrontation of the absenteeism of the Palestinian issue, which is woven by the agents of political and cultural enemies of the Islamic countries.

“In the recent ages, there is no crime that is equivalent to the theft of Palestine and the cultivation of the cancerous Zionist gland in it,” Imam Khamenei pointed out, adding that the main criminal in the tragedy of Palestine is the policy of western countries and the division of lands under the Ottoman government.

After World War II, Western countries took advantage of the regional countries’ negligence to declare the Zionist ‘state’, Imam Khamenei said, noting that “the main goal of Westerners and Jewish cartels in creating the Zionist entity was to build a base for their presence and influence.”

“Unfortunately, most Arab countries, that had shown resistance to the Zionist entity, began to gradually surrender. After their jihadist operations, the Palestinian fighting factions have followed a disappointing approach of negotiating with the occupier,” His Eminence underscored.

With the emergence of the resistance front, Imam Khamenei highlighted that the obstacles facing the Zionist entity became harder and harder, stressing that the Zionists and the global Arrogance are seeking to marginalize the Palestinian cause.

He noted, however, that the struggle for Palestine is a jihad for the sake of God and an Islamic obligation, then slammed that action of occupying a country and committing such crimes against its people for decades as being, in fact, a new record of barbarism in human history.

Imam Khamenei further said that negotiations with America and other western governments, and also negotiations with useless international groups, were bitter and unsuccessful experiences for Palestine.

Yasser Arafat's Speech at the UN General Assembly Olive Branch ...

Holding out an olive branch at the United Nations General Assembly had no result other than the injurious Oslo Accords, and it led to the eye-opening fate of Yasser Arafat, Imam Khamenei said.

His Eminence also noted that the Zionist regime will encounter even more problems in the future, God willing.

He further lashed out at human rights defenders, considering that “The slogan for defending the rights of women and children in international forums does not include defending the rights of women and children in Yemen and Palestine.”

His Eminence then asked: Who is responsible for all this blood that has been unlawfully shed in Afghanistan, Palestine, Yemen, Libya, Syria and other countries?

Praising the Islamic Resistance movements, Imam Khamenei said:

“The emergence of the faithful, young, self-sacrificing force of Hezbollah in Lebanon and the formation of Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Palestine unsettled and alarmed the Zionist ringleaders and the US.”

“The resistance front is moving with increasing power and hope, and it marches on towards attracting increasing elements of power,” he stressed.

On the other side, Imam Khamenei labelled the opposing front of oppression, unbelief and arrogance as being more hollow, hopeless and powerless.

Imam Khamenei also touched upon the struggle to liberate Palestine, saying it is Jihad in the way of God, and it is an obligation and an Islamic goal.

Imam Khamenei then warned those who consider the concessions made by a few Palestinian elements or rulers of a few Arab countries as a license to sidestep this Islamic and human issue, telling them that they are making a grave mistake.

“The aim of this struggle is the liberation of all the Palestinian lands – from the river to the sea – and the return of all Palestinians to their homeland,” Imam Khamenei emphasized.

His Eminence also lashed out at the world, which is today counting every victim of the coronavirus across the globe, but nobody of them has asked who is responsible for the hundreds of thousands of martyrdoms where America and Europe have waged wars.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Palestine and Hezbollah in Lebanon have been a proof for everyone, Imam Khamenei stated, stressing that the world has not forgotten and will not forget the day when the Zionist army broke through the Lebanese borders and marched till Beirut or the day when a criminal murderer named Ariel Sharon caused a bloodbath in Sabra and Shatila.

The “Israeli” army, which was pounded by Hezbollah, had no choice but to retreat from the borders of Lebanon and beg for a truce after sustaining heavy casualties and admitting defeat, Imam Khamenei said.

Meanwhile, “the European government, which should be eternally ashamed for selling chemical agents to the regime of Saddam Hussein, designate the devoted Hezbollah as illegal.”

“Illegal is a regime like the US that creates Daesh and a regime like the European governments whose chemical agents caused the death of thousands in Iran and Iraq,” Imam Khamenei stressed.

“My final word is that Palestine belongs to the Palestinians; therefore, it should be run as they wish,” Imam Khamenei concluded.

His Eminence, on this day, said he would like to remember the martyrs of Quds Sheikh Ahmad Yassin, Fathi Shaqaqi, Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi, Martyr Soleimani, and also the great Iraqi Mujahid Martyr Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

ازالة «إسرائيل» واجب شرعيّ وإنسانيّ نقطة أول السطر..

محمد صادق الحسيني

انه يوم القدس العالمي، يوم ان تكون القدس عاصمة لكلّ العرب ولكلّ المسلمين ولكلّ أحرار العالم‏، ولا غير…!

في هذا اليوم التاريخي العظيم الذي يلخص ملحمة الإنسانية في الدفاع عن الحق والحقيقة لا بدّ من اليقظة والانتباه جيداً لما قد يُعدّه العدو لنا…!

حذار ثم حذار ثم حذار ‏من الوقوع في فخ الصهاينة من جديد..!

‏تثير الصهيونية العالمية بين الفينة والأخرى موجة مضللة من الدعاية لحفظ كيانها الغاصب القائم على الظلم والتضليل والزيف والخداع والمخاتلة والاختباء وراء مشهديات مزيفة..!

‏والعنوان دائماً: ‏العداء لليهوديّة!

‏حذار من هذا الفخّ، فلسطين تمّ غصبها في تاريخ معيّن، عنوة وغيلة وغدراً، ويجب أن تعود الآن لأهلها والسلام… ولا علاقة لهذا بأيّ أمر آخر، من أمور الخداع والزيف والتضليل بأي مظلة تستر او تحتها اختبأ هذا الغاصب والمحتلّ..!

وإنّ محاولة الصهاينة إثارة بعض المغالطات هنا او هناك بهدف كسب تعاطف دولي مزوّر وغير مشروع، لن يغيّر من حقيقة صارخة ألا وهي:

أن فلسطين الجغرافيا والسكان والحقوق والتاريخ والثقافة والهوية قد تمّ غصبها ومصادرتها عنوة على يد المستعمر الغربي وبرعاية الصهيونية العالمية في غفلة من تاريخ عالمنا العربي والإسلامي…

وأن يكون الحاكم الغاصب الفعلي آنذاك او الآن محسوباً على الديانة اليهودية حقاً أو كذباً وزوراً لا يغيّر من الأمر شيئاً قطعاً..!

حتى لو أعلن حكام تل ابيب إسلامهم الآن مثلاً… لن يغيّر من الأمر شيئاً، عندها سيكونون في أحسن أحوالهم مثل صهاينة الداخل المتغطين بعروبة كاذبة او بإسلام كاذب، وهم المعروفون تاريخياً بالرجعية العربية، والذين هم من جنسهم ومن معسكرهم المعادي أصلاً لنضال الشعوب والأمم الحرة منذ النشأة بل منذ النطفة…!

وأمر تفكيك وإزالة هذا الكيان الغاصب سلماً او حرباً هو واجب وطني وقومي وديني وثقافي وإنساني، تحقيقاً للعدالة الكونية عند كلّ الأحرار وعند المتديّنين منهم تحقيقاً لمقولة الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر. وهو أمر لا يتغيّر مع مرور الزمن بل هو من ثوابت الفكر الإنساني عامةً…

انها لحظة وعي إنساني تقترب من نضجها ولا بدّ للسنن الكونية والحتمية التاريخية أن تفعل فعلها وفلسطين يجب أن تصبح وستصبح قريباً حرة مستقلة عربية وجزءاً لا يتجزأ من أمة مشرقية وعربية قوية وعزيزة وجزءاً من محور عربي وإسلامي مقاوم وقويّ في إطار محور عالمي مضادّ للاستكبار العالمي والاستعمار والإمبريالية والأحادية الأميركية الهيمنية الجائرة…!

ولا مهرب من هذه الحقيقة التي باتت أوضح من الشمس في رابعة النهار ولا يمكن تغطيتها بالغربال …!

فلسطين عائدة لأهلها، وأهلها عائدون إليها، هذا حق لن يتغيّر مع تقادم الزمن، بل يترسّخ ويتعزّز مع استعادة الأمة وعيها وقوتها.

سنصلّي في القدس.

بعدنا طيبين قولوا الله…

Sayyed Nasrallah to Martyr Suleimani: We Will Pray in Al-Quds, We are Preparing for That Day!

May 20, 2020

Marwa Haidar

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah described former Head of Al-Quds Force in Iran’s IRGC Qassem Suleimani as the ‘great martyr of Al-Quds’, promising him to fulfill his dream of liberating Al-Quds and Palestine.

Sayyed Nasrallah Al-Quds Day

In a united address by leaders of Resistance movements on the occasion of Al-Quds Day, Sayyed Nasrallah told martyr Suleimani that the Resistance is preparing to pray in Al-Quds.

“This year, we miss martyr Hajj Qassem Suleimani. Hajj Qassem had worked throughout the day and the night to strengthen the Resistance and to liberate Al-Quds.”

“We promise him and all the other martyrs that the day when Al-Quds will be liberated is coming,” Sayyed Nasrallah said in the address which carried Hebrew subtitles in a clear message to the Israeli enemy.

Talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah said that Imam Ruhollah Khomeini declared Al-Quds Day as an annual occasion on the last Friday of Ramadan Holy month in a bid to voice Iran’s firm and decisive commitment to Palestine and Al-Quds.

“Today we are so close to liberate Al-Quds thanks to faith, steadfastness, patience and sincerity of Axis of Resistance’s powers.”

His eminence stressed that those who are seeking to normalize ties with the Zionist entity don’t represent the real image of the Muslim and Arab Ummah.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the Zionist officials are concerned over the military buildup of Resistance factions across Arab and Muslim countries.

“Zionist officials are scared of victories achieved by Axis of Resistance and astonished by defeat of the United States and its allies.”

The Hezbollah S.G. noted that Al-Quds Day coincides this year with the 20th anniversary of Resistance and Liberation Day (which falls on May 20), reiterating Hezbollah’s firm commitment to support the Palestinian cause.

“We in Hezbollah, pledge to stand by the oppressed people of Palestine.”

Statement of Leaders of Resistance Axis on Al-Quds Int’l Day

Statement of Leaders of Resistance Axis on Al-Quds Int’l Day

Translated by Staff, Live Coverage

Resistance Axis leaders and several figures are giving televised statements on the occasion of the al-Quds International Day organized by the International Committee to Revive al-Quds International Day in cooperation with Islamic Radios and Televisions Union [IRTVU].

The first statement was delivered by head of the Political Bureau of Hamas Movement, Ismail Haniyeh.

Hanyieh started his statement by shedding light on the situation in al-Quds saying it “is temporarily suffering three sieges,” warning “Israelis” of committing any stupid move in dealing with al-Aqsa Mosque.

Hanyieh then called for a comprehensive move in facing the so-called “deal of the century”, adding that “Al-Quds is suffering one of the most dangerous stages”.

Elsewhere in his statement, the Hamas leader said, “Iran has not hesitated to support the resistance in all its types”.

“We salute the Islamic Republic for its support for the Palestinian Cause and we salute Imam Khomeini, who launched the International al-Quds Day”, Haniyeh said.

The Hamas leader concluded his statement by reiterating that “al-Quds is the capital of the state of Palestine on all of its land, from its sea to its river”.

The second statement was delivered by al-Quds Bishop Atallah Hanna.

Hanna began his statement by insisting that “al-Quds must be liberated”.

He added, “We call for toppling all schemes and conspiracies against our Holy City in particular and the Palestinian Cause in general”.

Bishop Hanna further said, “Al-Quds in particular is a cause that directly concerns both the Christians and Muslims in this world”.

“We will not abandon Al-Quds, which was and will remain the capital of Palestine, despite all deals and schemes, all normalization and conspiracies,” the cleric added.

Moreover, Hanna addressed the Arabs saying, “The Zionists attack al-Quds on daily basis and every hour. The ‘Israelis’ seek to undermine its history and identity”.

The third statement was delivered by Head of the Sunni Endowment of Iraq Sheikh Abd al-Latif al-Humaym.

Sheikh al-Humaym asserted that “al-Quds is the key to liberation”, stressing that “unlike any other day, al-Quds Day is an eternal and historic one”.

“Terrorism is made by the Zionist,” Sheikh al-Humaym said, adding, “We confront the occupier with determination and stubbornness, because al-Quds will not return to us except by fighting, and we confirm that it will not be a memory of the past”.

He further declared, “Nobody thinks that al-Quds could be bought or sold, and no one thinks that the way to liberate it is close”.

Sheikh al-Humaym concluded his statement by emphasizing that “normalization with the Zionist entity is Haram [forbidden], because it resembles a betrayal of the nation’s principles by all standards”.    

The fourth statement was delivered by Bahrain’s top Shia cleric His Eminence Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.

Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim in his statement said, “The International al-Quds Day is now more than necessary to preserve the nation and its unity,” and “The choice of the Bahraini people is resistance in face of the occupation”.

“Remembering Martyr Qassem Soleimani is remembering al-Aqsa Mosque, its sanctity and importance. He is a resemblance to the Palestinian Cause,” Ayatollah Qassim said.

However, the Bahraini cleric warned, “Seeking to establish an alliance with ‘Israel’ serves the enemies of the Arab nation”, explaining that “Today, we witness an escalation in media talk demanding normalization and submission to the American and Zionist will”.

The fifth statement was delivered by Secretary General of Asaib Ahl al-Haq Movement Sheikh Qais al-Khazali.

For his part, Sheikh Qais al-Khazali began his statement by hailing the Martyr Leaders, “The blood of martyr leaders will destroy the American and ‘Israeli’ interests”.

“This aggressive ‘Israeli’ entity is not only harmful to Palestine and the Palestinian people, but to the entire Arab and Islamic world,” al-Khazali declared.

He went on to say, “Imam Khomeini’s announcement of al-Quds Day is a renewal to the memory of this Cause and a reminder to the whole world about it”.

Sheikh al-Khazali remembered martyrs General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis saying that their assassination was “an ‘Israeli’ decision in particular”.

“Ending the US military presence in Iraq and the region is an imperative thing and a matter of time,” said the SG of Iraq’s Asaib Ahl al-Haq.

The Iraqi leader concluded his speech declaring, “Ending the ‘Israeli’occupation to our Arab lands after the ending of the American military presence in our region is an inevitable issue”.

The sixth statement was delivered by Head of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi.

Sayyed al-Houthi began his statement by condemning “all forms of normalization with the ‘Israeli’ enemy, considering them as prohibited by Islam”.

According to Sayyed al-Houthi, “the main reason behind the assassination of martyr Soleimani is his role in confronting the ‘Israeli’ enemy and the American hegemony, as well as standing by the peoples of the region”.

Sayyed al-Houthi further called for the liberation of the Palestinian detainees stating, “We are ready to raise the level of the deal by adding another Saudi pilot and 5 other officers to previous ones we have captured”.

The seventh statement was delivered by the Secretary General of Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine Ziyad Nakhalah.

Al-Nakhalah said, “Imam Khomeini’s announcement of al-Quds Day is for rising the nation and achieving its unity in face of ‘Israel’”.

He explained that “Al-Quds International Day is a day to renew the pledge to al-Quds – that: we are coming!”

Al-Nakhalah slammed governments that prevent their people from reviving al-Quds Day saying that this acts is “under the pretext that it is an Iranian occasion”, stressing that to al-Quds would not be given up in favor of “Israel”.

In the conclusion of his statement, the SG of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine said, “They are talking about the rights of the Jews in Palestine and not talking about the rights of the Palestinian people in Palestine”.

Finally, the eighth statement was delivered by Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

Sayyed Nasrallah began his statement by hailing al-Quds day as “one of the blessed announcements of late Imam Khomeini”.

His Eminence said, “Today, due to faith, steadfastness, patience, honesty, sincerity and communication between countries and powers of the Axis of Resistance, we find ourselves closer to al-Quds and to its liberation”.

“Al-Quds Day expresses Iran’s firm commitment to the Palestinian Cause,” Hezbollah SG stated.

Sayyed Nasrallah explained that the image of people normalizing with the enemy “is not the true image of our nation, but rather it is of those who were concealing their stance; and today they have been exposed”.

Moreover, martyr Qassem Soleimani was not absent from Sayyed Nasrallah’s statement, as His Eminence said, “We miss this year the martyr of al-Quds, Hajj Qassem Soleimani, who was a major pillar of the resistance in the region”.

In the statement, the Secretary General assured Hezbollah’s commitment to the Palestinian Cause and explained, “The Zionist officials are terrified of the Axis of Resistance’s victories and anxious from the defeat of their and the US’ allies”

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say, “We will continue in the path of martyr Soleimani and vow to achieve his aspirations. We will proceed in this path and be present on the fronts, as he taught us”.

Elsewhere in his statement, His Eminence said, “All the conspiracies to divide us have failed, and the meeting between us confirms that attempts to isolate Palestine also failed”.

Moreover, Sayyed Nasrallah made a pledge to martyr Hajj Soleimani as well as to all the martyrs and all the Mujahedeen, that “the day to liberate al-Quds is coming”.

“We assure the spirit of martyr Soleimani that we will complete his path and achieve his dreams and his most precious aspirations, regardless of psychological wars, sanctions, sieges and threats,” Hezbollah SG declared.

Sayyed Nasrallah also said, “We are paving the ground for the day – that will inevitably come – when we will all pray in al-Quds”.

As a conclusion, Sayyed Nasrallah said, “Today, I appeal to all the people of our nation to revive al-Quds Day in ways that are appropriate: be it in the media or in the cultural, political, social and artistic terms, with taking into consideration all required preventive measures amid Covid-19”.

“This year, al-Quds Day must be strongly present in our conscience, minds, hearts, emotions, will, culture, programs and actions”, Sayyed Nasrallah ended his statement.

في ذكرى اغتصاب فلسطين اقتراح للتفكير… ومبادرة سلام القدس عليكم وصباح القدس لكم

ناصر قنديل

بين ذكرى اغتصاب فلسطين، وعيد المقاومة والتحرير عشرة أيام، ليس من الصدفة أن يقطعهما هذا العام يوم القدس، الذي جاء بمبادرة من الإمام الخميني رحمه الله، قبل أربعين عاماً، ليحفظ القدس في الذاكرة، تاركاً مهمة التحرير مهمة منفصلة، تستقوي ببقاء القدس حيّة في الذاكرة الجمعيّة عندما تتوفر ظروف العمل.

عيد المقاومة تذكير بأن الأمل بتحرير فلسطين مؤسس على أسباب ومعطيات واقعية، وكما يقول سيد المقاومة دائماً، إن عظمة النصر في أيار، انه سحب من التداول السؤال حول إمكان التحرير، لأن دليل الإمكان هو الوقوع.

تأتي المناسبات وتحتشد هذه السنة وقد تكفّل إعلان كيان الاحتلال، عن هويته كدولة عنصرية يهودية، بإسقاط فرص الحديث عن أي تساكن مع الاحتلال تحت شعارات مموّهة كالدولة ذات القوميّتين، أو دولة المواطنة. كما تكفلت بالتوازي صفقة القرن، بإقفال كل طرق التسويات ومسارات التفاوض، التي لم تكن يوماً إلا لإلهاء شعوبنا وأمتنا، عن خيار المقاومة كخيار وحيد للتحرير، واسترددنا في طريق سقوط خيار التفاوض والبحث عن التسوية، وحدة نضال الشعب الفلسطيني، فما عاد هناك أربعة شعوب، شعب يقيم شبه دولة في غزة، وشعب يريد بناء نصف دولة في الضفة، وشعب ينتظر ربع عاصمة دولة في القدس، وشعب منسيّ تمت التضحية بحقوقه، كشرط للتسوية والتفاوض، هو أهلنا في المناطق المحتلة عام 48 الذين ترك لهم أن يناضلوا لتحسين شروط العيش في الكيان وتحت الاحتلال والطريق هو الانتخابات التي تشرعن الاحتلال والاغتصاب. فعاد الفلسطينيون اليوم شعباً موحداً وليس واحداً فقط، حيث الحق واحد والقضية واحدة والهوية واحدة والطريق واحد وهو المقاومة.

أن تبقى فلسطين بوصلتنا، هذا هو العهد، لكن أن نسعى نحوها، فذلك هو الطريق الذي يسلكه كل داعم للمقاومة ومساند لصمود سورية، وتعافي مصر، ورفض نظريات ومسارات الانعزال عن فلسطين، تحت عنوان مبتذل للوطنية في الكيانات العربية، مثل لبنان أولاً وسورية أولاً ومصر أولاً والأردن أولاً والعراق أولاً، فوطنية كل عربي لا تصان في بلده، ما بقيت فلسطين تحت الاحتلال، وبقيت يد كيان الاحتلال هي العليا في منطقتنا، ولا أمن وطني لدولنا الوطنية خارج مفهوم الأمن القومي كما صاغه الرئيس الراحل حافظ الأسد ويواصل تثبيته الرئيس بشار الأسد، وعنوانه مواجهة تغوّل المشروع الصهيوني وعدوانيّته ودعم نضال الشعب الفلسطيني ومقاومته.

السؤال الذي يواجهنا كنخب ثقافية وإعلامية واجتماعية، حول نوع الدعم الذي يمكن تقديمه لفلسطين، يستدعي التفكير بمبادرة واقعية ومؤثرة في آن واحد، وقد استوقفتني قبل سنتين الفكرة العبقرية للإمام الخميني بإعلان يوم القدس، الذي كان يربط استقباله لقادة الدول بمدى قبولهم بتسهيل إحياء يوم القدس، فيما كان تشدّده موضع تساؤل حول جدوى إعلانه بالأصل. وها هو يوم القدس اليوم مناسبة تخرج فيها عشرات الملايين عبر عواصم العالم ترفع الشعارات وتهتف للقدس وفلسطين، وستبقى وتتعاظم وتزداد، حتى يحين موعد العمل العظيم، وتدق ساعة التحرير، ولو جيلاً بعد جيل، لأن الأصل هو الذاكرة، والأجيال، ومعركة الوعي وكي الوعي.

اختبرت خلال هاتين السنتين مبادرة عنوانها، التدرب على استبدال صباحاتنا التقليدية، والبلهاء بلا معنى أحياناً، مثلها مساءاتنا وسلاماتنا، بأن نقول صباح الخير ومساء الخير، أو نلقي السلام التقليديّ للمسلمين السلام عليكم، أو لدى المسيحيين، نهاركم سعيد، بصباح ومساء وسلام، تحمل كل المعاني النبيلة وتختصرها، فيكون سلامنا رمزاً للخير وللسلام والحب والحق، ويرمز لما يجب أن يبقى حياً في الذاكرة، ولا يرتب أعباء على مَن يتبنّاه، فهو ليس منشوراً سياسياً، ولا بندقية، ولا سلاحاً، إنه مجرد سلام وتحية.

صباح القدس عليكم وصباح القدس لكم، ومسّيناكم بأنوار القدس، وسلام القدس لكم ومنكم وعليكم وبكم، كلّها مفردات تصلح، وهي بسيطة وسهلة، وإذا انتشرت بين الملايين وصارت تقليداً شائعاً، فهي خير إسهام في معركة الحق نحو فلسطين، وفي الاختبار اكتشفت أنها ليست بالسهولة التي تبدو عليها، فهي سهلة من زاوية انعدام الخطر والتبعات من اعتمادها، لكنها ليست سهلة بتحويلها إلى عادة، ولا هي سهلة بتحمل بعض السخرية عندما نلقيها على بعض المتفذلكين الذي سيقولون حتى الصباح والسلام تقومون بتسييسه، ولا هي سهلة مع الأهل والأقارب والأصدقاء والأبناء، حتى تصبح عادة، ولا قيمة لها ما لم تصبح عادة، فوجدت أن تحدّي الصعوبة يحول هذا التحدّي إلى فرصة، حيث الشرح والبيان عن سبب الاختيار ومعانيه، وحجم المضمون الذي يختزنه، هو نشر للوعي، وخلال السنتين شاركني المئات من الأصدقاء والمتابعين الاختبار، وقد وجدنا فيه معاً خياراً، يؤكد هويتنا وبوصلتنا، واستنهاضاً لمعاني السمو والرقي في التخاطب، وقد صار أسهل بكثير من البداية وصارت شجاعتنا باعتماده أساساً في سلامنا وتحايانا أعلى بكثير، ولا زلنا نتدرب على المزيد ونسعى لامتلاك الشجاعة لتجاوز الإحراج، فاكتشفنا أنها معركة حقيقية ويومية.

أقترح مناقشة الفكرة، وإن شاركتموني تقدير قيمتها وأهميتها، فإن تعميم اعتماد القدس ركيزة سلاماتنا وصباحاتنا ومساءاتنا وتحايانا، تجسيد لمعنى مسؤوليتنا عن صناعة الوعي، وتجذير الذاكرة في أجيال يجب أن ترث من إلقاء الصباح وتحية المساء معنىً لا يتقادم عليه الزمن، تختصره القدس.

نكتشف كم كان الزعيم أنطون سعاده عبقرياً عندما وضع بنفسه وهو في الثانية والثلاثين من عمره نشيد الحزب السوري القومي الاجتماعي “سورية لك السلام” وصاغ تحية الحزب “تحيا سورية” قبلها بأعوام، ولا تزال هذه التحيّة وهذا النشيد يحفظان الذاكرة القومية من جيل إلى جيل، وما الضير أن تحيا سورية ويكون سلام القدس عليكم وصباح القدس لكم؟

Nasrallah: Resistance Axis and Arab & Muslim Peoples will Never Forsake Palestine

The Saker

June 13, 2019

Speech by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on Friday, May 31, 2019, on the occasion of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) International Day.
Transcript:
I seek refuge with God against the stoned devil. In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds, and prayers and salutations be upon our Master and Prophet, the Seal of Prophets, Abul Qasim Mohammad b. Abdallah, and on his pure and noble family, his chosen and faithful companions, as well as all the Prophets and Messengers. Dear brothers and sisters, dear participants in this honorable protest, peace be upon you and God’s mercy and His blessings.I welcome you warmly for this celebration that is dear to us, and I thank you all for this massive participation, to commemorate this celebration full of jihad (effort towards God), faith, humanity, ethics, which stems from our religion, our doctrine, our belief, our struggle, our present, our future and our destiny, and our honor, our pride, our freedom and our holy places.

God the Almighty and the Exalted said in his Holy Book: In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. “O ye who believe! fear Allah and (always) say righteous and truthful words. That He may make your conduct whole and sound and forgive you your sins: he that obeys Allah and His Apostle has already attained the highest Achievement.” (Quran, 33, 70-71) I ask God the Almighty to make us utter words of truth, (especially) during these sensitive, difficult and decisive times for our future.
Today, 40 years have passed since Imam Khomeini, may his soul be sanctified, declared the International Day of Al-Quds (Jerusalem), the occasion (we celebrate every last Friday of Ramadan). Imam announced and called for this day in 1979. And for 40 years, the enemies of Al-Quds have placed their hopes in the disappearance, neglect or oblivion of this day with the passage of time, because in their eyes, such is the nature of people. But year after year, we have seen the importance bestowed upon this day by the peoples of the world and of the (Islamic) Community grow larger and larger, the occasion becoming ever more grandiose, despite attempts to present it as an Iranian day, give it a sectarian appearance, and describe it as a day (celebrated only by) Shiites.But the sincerity of Imam Khomeini, may his noble soul be sanctified, and the purity of his intentions, were stronger than all these conspiracies and all these shenanigans, as well as the sincerity and honesty of all those who have walked this path (of resistance) that will lead to the Liberation of Al-Quds (Jerusalem), which will return (to Muslims) with the Grace of God, managed to overcome every blockade. And that’s why we see (such huge demonstrations) today, this very day, but in reality (this celebration is such a success that) soon, this will be the week of Al-Quds (and not just the day).

Yesterday afternoon and last night there were rallies in many cities and many countries, and today as well, (there are celebrations) in our region, the Middle East —or Western Asia as Imam Ali Khamenei calls it—, in African countries, either in North Africa or the rest of the African continent, in Indonesia, Malaysia, in several European countries, in some cities of America, Australia and Latin America. (Many) peoples, currents of thought, various religious and political groups, and a huge & massive participation. And there will be people who will celebrate this occasion tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday, especially in certain European countries, because of the authorization they get to demonstrate in public squares or streets during their weekend. Thank God, (the celebration) of this Al-Quds Day is becoming increasingly important and increasingly massive. It is something quite natural and predictable.

Today, the summary of my speech (is this).

I / I will say two words about the event (we celebrate).II / The main part (of my speech) will concern Palestine and the Deal of the Century, our collective responsibility in this regard and our assessment of the current situation.

III / From there, I’ll talk —because the issues are related— about all that is said now or has been said in recent weeks, about a US war against Iran, which has become less likely in recent days.

IV / I will also comment on the recent Arab summit held in the holy city of Mecca.

V / And I will conclude my remarks with a Lebanese issue concerning the delimitation of (Lebanon’s land and sea) borders (with occupied Palestine), but there is a very sensitive and related issue in which the border demarcation is exploited to pressure the Lebanese, a sensitive issue (directly) involving the Resistance (Hezbollah) and Israel, and I will talk about it, because if I do not do it tonight, in a few days… Because this issue is beginning to spread behind particular scenes, and will soon be discussed in the media, and we will then have to respond. It is preferable to state now our position of principle, after which anyone who wants to write a comment about it could do so at will. We will state our position in this new hotspot (Hezbollah precision missile factories in Lebanon).

I / Regarding the Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day, today, we saw large protests in several countries. But the first thing we have to mention is the huge popular demonstrations in Iran, which brought together millions of people. In previous years, we didn’t mention it at length, because it was regarded as something quite normal (for Iran). This year, we’ll mention it somewhat, because the world needs (to know)… I saw that the Arab media, including those who support and help the Resistance Axis, failed to show the true extent of (the participation of the Iranian people to the event). I followed the Iranian media and television, and I could see cities (blackened with people), a large number of cities in which there were huge demonstrations.

This is a message to whom? Why do I dwell upon it? Iran, about which Trump pretends that every Friday, there are (major) protests against the regime of the Islamic Republic, that the Iranian people is rising against the State and the government, that Iran is in the process of collapse, and that Iran will soon contact him (to beg for mercy)… (But Trump) will wait for a very long time (if he hopes to see such a thing). It is true that the Iranians were busy reciting the invocations of Al Jawchan al-Kabir and Abu Hamzeh al Thumali (specific to Ramadan, and extremely long), but Trump had to wait (for an Iranian response) until the end (of their long) prostrations. This is a message to whom? To all those who are betting on seeing this noble people eventually flinch, weaken, become discouraged, change his course, etc., etc., etc. And this people is not commemorating the victory of the Islamic Revolution or defending the Islamic regime in Iran, things that concern (directly) all Iranians. This people was demonstrating for the occasion of (the International Day of) Al-Quds (Jerusalem), for the Palestinian, Arab and Muslim cause, that is to say, for a foreign policy matter.

The Iranians demonstrated by the millions, while fasting, and for hours, and I saw on the television screens that all the officials of the Islamic Republic, the Presidents (of the Republic, of Parliament, etc.) and the other leading officials participated in the demonstrations. And I saw that at the protest of Qom (spiritual heart of Iranian Shiism), many of the main religious authorities in Qom participated, despite their advanced age. They were both great in their authority, and great by their age —80, 85, 90 years—, they came up with the crowd and expressed this position (unwavering commitment to the complete liberation of Palestine and to Israel’s disappearance). Anyway, this is a message addressed primarily to the United States, secondly to all governments in the region, and thirdly to anyone who follows the events, has hopes (for or against Iran and Palestine) or merely waits (to see what will happen, without taking sides).
Similarly, as for last year, we have to mention the scale of the huge demonstrations in Yemen, in Sanaa and in several Yemeni cities, this massive popular presence, and the eloquent and fiery speeches of the leaders in Yemen regarding Palestine, Al-Quds (Jerusalem), the struggle against Israel and the United States… Anyway, the Yemeni people, through his (massive) presence in the streets, as well as his (exploits) on the battlefield and in the fighting (against the Saudi-US coalition) —I’ll come back to this point in my speech to make it more clear—, has established himself strongly in the regional equation and all the struggles of the region.What happened in other countries of the world (should also be mentioned), as it becomes increasingly widespread and massive. We have a long list (of countries where protests commemorated Al-Quds Day): in Palestine and Gaza in particular, naturally, —there were martyrs in Al-Quds (Jerusalem)—, in Turkey, Iraq, Syria, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Nigeria, Ghana, Malaysia, Indonesia, Belgium, the United States themselves, Russia, Oman, Tunisia, Algeria, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Senegal… That’s the list of countries identified by our young (Hezbollah members) for us (so far). Of course, tomorrow, things will be clearer.

I should also mention the popular demonstrations that took place last night in Bahrain, in the hamlets, villages and cities of Bahrain, and also today, and their slogan was “No to the Deal of the Century, and in the direction of Al-Quds (to liberate it).” Despite the fact that, unfortunately, the first operational step (of the Deal of the Century) must be launched from Bahrain (at the end of June 2019), the scholars of Bahrain took to the streets, as well as the people and political forces, to confirm that everything that happens on their territory (normalization with Israel) is illegitimate, and that Bahrain, its people, its scholars, its political forces, its present and its past are innocent of this abandonment (of Palestine), this submission and the servility of the Government of Bahrain towards the US administration.
