On May 25, 2000 the world has changed

يونيو 25, 2019

Written by Nasser Kandil,

There is no need to indicate that Israel occupied a status in the western system that ruled the world until 2000, when the Soviet Union was disintegrating, Russia was breathtaking after a decline that lasted for ten years, and when Washington was controlling the Eastern Europe and reached to the borders of Russia through its colorful revolutions. As there is no need to prove that the status of Israel in the western system as a wall of protection in the most important region in the world where there is trade lines, oil and gas resources has been affected on the 25th of May, 2000 when it was obliged to withdraw by force from the South of Lebanon without any negotiation, term, or condition.

Patrick Buchanan; a leader in the Republican Party who competed George W. Bush for presidency in 2000 said in an article on the eve of the US invasion of Iraq that after the resounding fall of the Israeli force, America found itself obliged to be present directly in the region to besiege the rising powers Iran and Syria by occupying Iraq and Afghanistan, hoping to rehabilitate the ability of Israel to launch a war to end the shame of defeat and to prevent the emergence of new equation in the region. The successive facts especially those during the war of July 2006 said that this has happened. Washington announced its responsibility for this war and described it with the opportunity to establish a new Middle East, but the results were contrary, both America and Israel sank in the sea of failure.

Washington tried to involve the region in the wars of chaos hoping that Syria would collapse in these wars and the balances would change. But Russia came to the region, Iran increased its strength, Hezbollah developed its abilities as the pivotal force of the resistance which made the victories of 2000 and 2006, and the resistance of Palestine rose. All of these affected the ability of Israel of occupation and deterrence. Now the region is witnessing a kind of escalation as frequencies of the earthquake of May 25th 2000, which it became certain that it was greater than the American defeat in the war of Vietnam and the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan, and that the attempts to end it is still the issue that concerns the Americans, the Israelis, and even the rulers of the Gulf. The war of Yemen produced a similar phenomenon to Hezbollah which is growing and creating more equations, contrary to Al-Qaeda Organization which was brought to wage a war by proxy in Syria, but it harvested the double failure.

The complex of May 25, 2000 is pursuing the Americans; they try hard to avoid it. A little scrutiny will reveal that their issue with Iran is not in its nuclear program and their issue with Syria is not its regime, so what if Iran and Syria accept to meet the requirements of Washington concerning the Israeli security and what if Syria and Iran accept to stop the support of the resistance which always forms the first item in the American book of terms since Colin Powell carried it to the Syrian President after the entry of the American tanks to Baghdad, the result will be no problem with Iran regarding its nuclear program and no problem with the regime in Syria. On the contrary Iran will become the guarantor of security in the region, and Syria will become on the top of the democratic countries.

On the 25th of May, the history was decisive; time will not return backward, the resisters have written the future of the world and signed it with their blood. So let’s wait and see.

في 25 أيار 2000 تغيّر وجه العالم 

مايو 25, 2019

– لا يحتاج المرء للدلالة على مكانة «إسرائيل» في المنظومة الغربية التي كانت تحكم العالم حتى العام 2000، عندما كان الاتحاد السوفياتي قد تفكك وروسيا تلتقط أنفاسها من غيبوبة عشر سنوات، وعندما كانت واشنطن قد أحكمت قبضتها على أوروبا الشرقية ووصلت حدود روسيا بثوراتها الملوّنة، ولا يحتاج المرء لإثبات أن مكانة «إسرائيل» في المنظومة الغربية كجدار حماية في المنطقة الأهم من العالم، حيث خطوط التجارة وموارد النفط والغاز، قد أصيبت بزلزال في 25 أيار عام 2000 عندما أجبرت على الانسحاب من جنوب لبنان بالقوة، دون تفاوض ودون قيد أو شرط.

– يقول باتريك بوكانن القيادي في الحزب الجمهوري الأميركي الذي نافس جورج بوش على الترشّح للرئاسة داخل الحزب عام 2000، في مقالة له عشية الغزو الأميركي للعراق، إن أميركا وجدت نفسها بعد السقوط المدوّي لجدار القوة الإسرائيلي معنية بالحضور المباشر إلى المنطقة، لاحتواء القوتين الصاعدتين، إيران وسورية وتطويقهما، باحتلال العراق وافغانستان أملاً بردّ الاعتبار لقدرة «إسرائيل» وتمكينها من شنّ حرب تمسح عار هزيمتها وتحول دون نشوء معادلة جديدة في المنطقة. وتقول الوقائع التي جرت بعد ذلك، خصوصاً في حرب تموز 2006 إن هذا ما حدث، وإن واشنطن أعلنت مسؤوليتها عن هذه الحرب ووصفتها بالفرصة لاستيلاد شرق اوسط جديد، لكن النتائج كانت عكسية، وغرقت أميركا و»إسرائيل» في بحر الفشل.

– حاولت واشنطن إدخال المنطقة في حروب الفوضى أملاً بأن تنهار سورية في قلب هذه الحروب، وتتعدل الموازين، فجاءت روسيا إلى المنطقة وزادت قوة إيران وتنامت قدرات حزب الله بصفته القوة المحوريّة في المقاومة التي صنعت انتصارَيْ 2000 و2006، ونهضت مقاومة في فلسطين فرضت المزيد من الإصابات في قدرة «إسرائيل» على الاحتلال والردع معاً، وما تشهده المنطقة من تصعيد ليس إلا من التردّدات التي لا زالت تتفاعل منذ ذلك الزلزال في 25 أيار عام 2000، الذي بات ثابتاً أنه حدث أكبر من الهزيمة الأميركية في حرب فييتنام، واكبر من الفشل في حربي العراق وأفغانستان، وان محاولات محو آثاره لا تزال القضية التي تقلق الأميركيين والإسرائيليين، وقد تعمّم القلق معهما ليصيب حكام الخليج، فإذ بالذهاب لحرب اليمن ينتج نظيراً مقاوماً يسير على خطى حزب الله وينمو ويخلق المزيد من المعادلات، بينما جرى اختبار استجلاب تنظيم القاعدة لخوض حرب بالوكالة في سورية وكانت النتيجة الفشل المضاعف.

– عقدة 25 أيار 2000 تلاحق الأميركيين، وهم يحاولون المستحيل اليوم للتملّص منها، وقليل من التدقيق سيكشف أن قضيتهم مع إيران ليست ملفها النووي، وأن قضيّتهم مع سورية ليست نظام الحكم فيها، فماذا لو قبلت إيران وسورية بقدر من المرونة مع متطلبات واشنطن في الأمن الإسرائيلي، بل ماذا لو قبلت سورية وإيران وقف دعم المقاومة، الذي يشكل دائماً البند الأول في دفتر الشروط الأميركي منذ حمله كولن باول إلى الرئيس السوري بعد دخول الدبابات الأميركية إلى بغداد؟ والجواب معلوم، لا تبقى مشكلة مع إيران في ملفها النووي ولا مشكلة مع سورية في نظام الحكم فيها، وتصير إيران ضامناً لأمن المنطقة وتصير سورية رأس اللائحة في الدول الديمقراطية.

– في 25 أيار قال التاريخ كلمة فاصلة، ولن تعود عقارب الساعة إلى الوراء، لقد كتب المقاومون مستقبل العالم ووقعوا بدمائهم. ومَن يعشْ يرَ!

كلمة السيد نصرالله: اختبار نيّات لبنانيّة حول خطر التوطين

مايو 28, 2019

ناصر قنديل

في كلمة الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله في عيد المقاومة والتحرير معادلات لبنانية داخلية تركزت على التضامن والتوافق والمؤسساتية. وقد برز ذلك أولاً بالحجم الذي احتلته القضايا الداخلية من كلمة جرت العادة أن تبتعد عن شؤون الداخل لتتفرّغ لمعادلات الصراع مع العدو، وكان ذلك الابتعاد يتمّ تفادياً لقضايا خلافيّة تثير التوتر لا تريد المقاومة زجّها بقضية ذات وزن استراتيجي بحجم المقاومة وقضية الصراع مع الاحتلال، وهو ما بدا أن المقاومة لا تستشعر وجوده، فحجم الجسور المتاحة لتناول القضايا الداخلية بمنطق التوافق والتضامن تبدو مطمئنة وكثيرة من جهة، والتزامن مع مناسبة هي يوم القدس العالمي سيتصدر خطاب السيد نصرالله فيه رسم معادلاته الكبرى لصراع يتداخل فيه البعد المرتبط بالمواجهة مع «إسرائيل» تحت عنوان القدس وصفقة القرن بالصراع الإقليمي الذي يدور بين واشنطن وطهران وتقف في قلبه أنظمة الخليج وإسرائيل على الضفة الأميركيّة، بينما تجد المقاومة نفسها معنية بتحديد اصطفافها العملي وليس المعنوي فقط، في ضوء الترابط بين توترات الخليج وصفقة القرن.

العنوان الداخلي المفتوح على الملف الإقليمي الذي تناوله السيد نصرالله في كلمته، كان ملف التوطين، سواء لجهة الإعلان عن اعتقاد المقاومة بأن خطر التوطين لم يعد مجرد فرضية محتملة بل أصبح تحدياً راهناً، مع وضوح ما تدعو إليه صفقة القرن من إسقاط لحق العودة للاجئين الفلسطينيين، وما تتعرّض له وكالة الأونروا، أو لجهة الدعوة التي وجهها السيد نصرالله للقاء لبناني فلسطيني على مستوى عالٍ يتحمل مسؤولية وضع خطة موحّدة لضمان حق العودة وإسقاط التوطين. وهذا التطور الداخلي الإقليمي، يبدو في حسابات المقاومة مرشحاً للنمو والتوسّع كعنوان لدورها في المرحلة المقبلة بما يشبه تعاملها مع تطور الأزمة السورية، التي أصبحت في مراحلها المتقدّمة حرباً مع الإرهاب التكفيري، وتطوّر في قلبها دور المقاومة من الدعوة للحل السياسي إلى الحضور الميداني المباشر، فصفقة القرن التي تشكل جوهر المشروع الأميركي الإسرائيلي الخليجي المشترك تقوم على ثنائيّة أبديّة السيطرة الإسرائيلية على القدس، وتصفية حق العودة للاجئين، تعني اللبنانيين مباشرة، فمن لا يعتبر أن مستقبل القدس يستحق ما يسمّيه توريط لبنان بنزاعات المنطقة، عليه أن يحدّد موقفه من نظرته لخطر التوطين، وحدود ما يستحق من تحمل أخطار في مواجهته، بما يتعدّى الحديث عن الاكتفاء بما تضمنه الدستور من إعلان رفض التوطين.

الأكيد أن المنطقة تعيش درجة عالية من التوتر والتصعيد يظنّها الكثيرون بداية حرب أميركية على إيران، يدعون إلى النأي بالنفس عنها، وتفيد المعطيات والمعلومات والتحليلات باستبعادها، وبالتالي استبعاد حاجة المقاومة للتورط فيها، أو استبعاد حاجة إيران لتورط المقاومة، لكن الأكيد أن المنطقة ستدخل بالتزامن مع هذا التوتر والتصعيد مرحلة التمهيد والترويج والتسويق لصفقة القرن. وهنا ستجد المقاومة نفسها كما كانت عشية انفجار الحرب على سورية، معنية بحساب الموقف اللبناني وكيفية تفاعله مع اعتبار إسقاط التوطين وبالتالي حماية حق العودة من الأولويات، مهما كان حجم الموقف الذي يجب إعلانه وصولاً للتلويح باعتبار السلاح واحدة من مفردات المواجهة، وإذا كان هناك من يجد الأعذار في الحالة السورية لإخضاعها لحسابات الانقسام اللبناني من جهة، ولنظريات النأي بالنفس من جهة أخرى، فإن المطلوب أجوبة لبنانية صريحة وواضحة وقاطعة حول المواقف من خطر التوطين وصفقة القرن وحق العودة، ومعرفة مَن يعتبر أنها من عناوين النأي بالنفس، ومعرفة الحدود التي سيغطيها التوافق اللبناني في المعركة المقبلة مع صفقة القرن وإسقاط خطر التوطين، وهما معركة واحدة لا ينفصل عنوان فيها عن الآخر.

It Is A Day of Hope For Continuing The Liberation!

 

Source

By Pierre Abi Saab, Al-Akhbar Newspaper

This year’s commemoration of the liberation of southern Lebanon from “Israeli” occupation, which falls on May 25, comes at a time of difficult national and regional conditions. Perhaps these present-day challenges give the Resistance and Liberation Day greater importance and a broader dimension, at an emotional, political, symbolic and strategic level. After nineteen years, there are still people who will spare no effort to undermine the heroic moment that paved the way for subsequent historical achievements and victories on Lebanese land, along its borders and in the Arab strategic depth. There are those who want to erase a historic moment that upset the balance of power in this existential and fateful struggle, which the Lebanese people have been fighting for the past seven decades, in order to subjugate colonialism, liberate the land and restore dignity and rights.

May 25 is the culmination of our people’s painful and costly struggle against a brutal, bloody, racist and arrogant enemy that has founded its entity on massacres, settlements and Apartheid. It took some of them decades to discover this fact with the adoption of the Jewish State Law. There are still those that have not seen it yet! May 25 is a victory over the colonial West, which is biased in favor of our murderer. The West protects it, supports it, arms it, covers up its crimes, justifies its massacres and legitimizes its criminal policies. And finally, May 25, is a defeat for the regimes of tyranny and surrender in the Arab world. These regimes are responsible for perpetuating the lie of ‘“Israeli” superiority”. That myth, which began to teeter in 2000 before finally shattering in the summer of 2006, fed itself for a long time on the inability of the Arab regimes, their weakness and collusion with the occupation. “Israel” is trying to pick up the pieces and repair the cracks by causing civil strife in our countries and utilizing Arab betrayals that have come out openly in recent years.

On May 25, 2019, more than ever, we realize that liberation is a difficult and an ongoing process. There are those who celebrate the occasion shamefully in Lebanon, and dare not name those who liberated the land and actually defeated the Takfiris. There are those who face the occasion with denial and disregard, as if it never happened. Do they prefer the “Israeli” occupation? Of course not, except for a small handful of conspirators, mercenaries and agents. The rest are hostages of fanaticism and interests, campaigns of ignorance and brainwashing, colonial pressures, national illiteracy and perhaps cowardice, regardless of their rank or position in the decision-making circle. If it is true that resisting the occupation in any place or time does not wait for a popular referendum or consensus of the elites who have been defeated or preoccupied with increasing their privileges, the task of fortifying the Mujahideen who conquered “Israel” depends on building national awareness that transcends regions, sectarian barricades and wraps around the resistance, embraces it and supports it. Resistance also means confronting efforts to infiltrate that awareness, exposing the distortion discourse that obscures the essence of the conflict and exposing the mechanisms that promote a culture of surrender and submission.

The regimes that surrendered to “Israel” are the same regimes that exploit their people and enslave their citizens. Lebanon is an example of that. The sectarian system incapable of confronting “Israel” is the same corrupt system that starved the Lebanese people and is today confidently dragging them into disaster. The people who have offered martyrs and resistance fighters are threatened with poverty and deprivation. It is the responsibility of the resistance to liberate the people and the land as well as to resist political injustice, just as it resisted the oppression and brutality of the occupation. On the other hand, the struggle for social and civil rights as well as the development of the society towards greater justice, democracy and progress cannot be achieved or obtain national legitimacy if it is not based on a fundamental principle. It may even result in an unknown destination for a disguised subordination and a dangerous shallow display. This principle is: “Israel” is the enemy. Resisting it with all means is an individual, collective, religious, secular, civil, partisan and political responsibility.

May 25th is the culmination of sacrifice and heroism that began with the national resistance, leftist and nationalist, and then continued and expanded and grew with the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon who broke the myth of “Israeli” superiority. Thanks to them, the enemy is now fading behind its defensive lines. It is being increasingly isolated inside the ghetto, surrounded by walls and fences, trying to compensate in misguided ways all it lost in the decade of decisive Arab victories. The resistance today stands against the American cowboy who thinks he can still subjugate the world. This alone is proof of the resistance’s firmness and strength as well as the legitimacy of its struggle.

The soft wars, disinformation campaigns, global fraud, internal collusions, strategy of extortion, siege and sanctions are but a desperate attempt to circumvent and weaken the resistance and prevent it from continuing its struggle. At this difficult juncture when a group of white fundamentalists surround the happy idiot in the White House, who is beating the drums of war against Iran, we celebrate the Resistance and Liberation Day loudly.

We also celebrate that key moment, which saw the defeat of the enemy, paying attention to the need to maintain, consolidate and complete it by all means! On May 25, we celebrate the coming defeats of that vast cosmic machine that is desperately trying to besiege Hezbollah. We recall the images of the liberation of Khiam Detention Center with its high symbolism. We imagine another liberation that ‘must come’ in the near future. The liberation of the Kafrshuba Hills and the Shabaa Farms is a foregone conclusion today. All eyes are directed at the occupied territories, which are within range of a rifle of the resistance fighters. We look forward to the moment when we will celebrate the liberation of all of Palestine. May 25 is the day of hope of continuing resistance and liberation!

Sayyed Nasrallah: If It Weren’t for Liberation in 2000, Trump Would’ve Granted South to Israel

May 25, 2019

Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah

Sara Taha Moughnieh

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah delivered a speech Saturday 25th of May on the anniversary of the Resistance and Liberation day.

Sayyed Nasrallah tackled regional and internal files including the upcoming Bahrain Summit, localizing the Palestinians in Lebanon, strength of the resistance axis, return of the Syrians to their country, and internal files.

His eminence called for a wide participation in Al-Quds day which is held annually on the last Friday of the Holy Month of Ramadan, stressing that this day is of great significance this year because of the efforts being made to put an end to the Palestinian cause, specifically during the upcoming Economic Conference in Bahrain.

He greeted the Palestinian’s united stance to boycott and refuse this conference and praised the Bahraini people, scholars, and political powers’ stances that condemned the country’s decision to be the first to embrace “the deal of the century” which aims at putting an end to the Palestinian cause.

25/May/2000: Resistance and Liberation Day

Sayyed Nasrallah greeted everyone who was part of this victory by sacrificing, staying patient, supporting and aiding.

“We should remember the families of the martyred and injured, Lebanese factions, Security Forces, Army, Palestinian factions and the Syrian Army and keep in mind that Iran and Syria are the ones who stood by our side and they are our companions in victory,” he said.

Hezbollah SG assured that one of the major outcomes of this victory was the “Equation of Strength” in Lebanon because the Israeli enemy had to pull back without any victories or conditions.

“Lebanon was no longer regarded as the weak ring in the Arab/Israel conflict, and today the Israeli enemy states that in Lebanon there is a “strategic or central threat against Israel”, he noted; adding “just like the enemy is aware of this strength, the Lebanese people should be aware of its importance in order to sustain their country’s sovereignty and safety and in order to protect it. This what forms the Golden Equation “Army, people and Resistance”.”

“If it weren’t for the resistance and liberation in 2000, Trump would’ve granted the south of Lebanon or other parts of it to Israel, just like he did with Al-Quds and the Golan,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, reassuring holding on to “Shabaa Farms, Kfarchouba hills and the Lebanese part of Al-Ghajar village.”

Localization in Lebanon

Concerning localizing immigrants in Lebanon, his eminence said: “we suspect that the economic summit in Bahrain will be opening the door for the localization of immigrants in Lebanon and other countries. The Lebanese agree on refusing localization politically and constitutionally, and the Palestinians as well agree on refusing localization and holding on to their right of return.”

Sayyed Nasrallah called for “a meeting between Lebanese and Palestinian officials to put a joint plan on how to face the danger of localization because the threat is approaching and statements are no longer enough”.

Syrian Refugees’ Return

Hezbollah SG pointed out that “the real reason behind delaying the return of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon to their country is political and it is related to the presidential elections in Syria because the presidency of Bashar Al-Assad will end in 2020 or 2021, and there is an American, Western, and Gulf insistence on keeping the refugees away from their countries until then. There are no humanitarian or security reasons behind postponing the refugees’ return to Syria and claims about that are just rumors.”

Sayyed Nasrallah further stated that “Assad has confirmed to me that he supports the return of everyone to Syria and is ready to offer facilitation, but the obstacle is political. Should Lebanon submit to this political obstacle only because the US, west and Gulf want that?”

Battle against Corruption Files

His eminence stressed Hezbollah’s commitment to fight corruption, reiterating that this needs time and patience, and it is even harder than the battle of liberating the south.

He indicated that the ministers are doing their jobs and have not found corruption in the Ministries of health and sports, and called on everyone who has information or data against these two ministries to propose them so that action would be taken.

On another hand, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that “budgeting discussion has been our priority because it is a major point in the process of fighting corruption and stopping financial waste.”
