Head of Hezbollah’s executive council Sayyed Hashem Safieddine indicated that the top military commander of the Islamic Resistance, martyr Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, started preparing for the upcoming battle with ‘Israel’ just after the end of 2006 War.

In an interview with Al-Manar TV Channel, Sayyed Safieddine stressed that July’s War led to the emergence of the axis of resistance, adding that the conspiracy against the resistance is still ongoing, but by different means.

Sayyed Safieddine maintained that the Resistance enemies are imposing an economic blockade on Lebanon in the context of their last attempt to undermine Hezbollah power, adding that the honorable Lebanese people will confront the US sanctions.

On July 12, 2006, the Israeli occupation army waged a barbaric war on Hezbollah after the Lebanese Resistance kidnapped two Zionist soldiers in an operation on the borders aimed at liberating Lebanese and Arab hostages from the enemy’s prisons. After a 33-day battle, ‘Israel’, backed by US and a large number of Western And Arab states, failed to reach any of its military targets due to Hezbollah fierce resistance. Thus, despite the  heavy sacrifices Hezbollah and the entire Lebanese nation emerged victorious from the war.

On February 12, 2008, Hezbollah military commander, Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, was martyred in a car bomb attack carried out by Israeli Mossad agents in Damascus.

Special Footage of the July 2006 Hezb Allah Operation Capturing Israeli IDF Terrorists

The Lebanese Hezb Allah resistance party has released new special footage, showing for the first time details of the brave operation of Hezb Allah soldiers blocking a vehicle of the Israeli IDF at the southern Lebanese borders arresting two of the Israeli terrorists.

The operation took place on 12 July 2006 after an unknown period of combing the area, monitoring the movements of the Israeli IDF terrorists, and selecting the target and timing of the operation.

Hezb Allah late commander Imad Mughniyeh is said to have planned the operation which took place in Khallet Wardeh area of the Lebanese Ayta ash Shab region, commander Mughniyeh was later assassinated by the Israeli terrorists in a complicated terrorist attack in Damascus in February 2008 with the help of their US patrons and the ‘intelligence’ services of another state believed to be an Arab one.

The following special footage was released by the Hezb Allah media on the 15th anniversary of the operation.

The video is also available on BitChute.

Special Footage of the July 2006 Hezb Allah Operation Capturing Israeli IDF Terrorists

Israel had planned to bomb Lebanon at the end of the summer of 2006, plans were drawn by the Israeli leaders to restore some of the Israeli pride which was completely lost in the year 2000 when the Lebanese resistance spearheaded by Hezb Allah managed to evict the decades-long Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon in a very humiliating manner. It took the Israeli military commanders 6 years to plan for an operation that they thought will eliminate Hezb Allah and restore Israel’s hegemony over Lebanon again. Khallet Wardeh operation by Hezb Allah only brought the Israeli operation 2 months earlier when the Israelis were encouraged by their US patrons, the Saudis, and other evil forces to bomb Lebanon and destroy the country’s infrastructure in the 33 days war of aggression.

Khallet Wardeh operation was meant to arrest Israeli IDF terrorists to exchange them with Lebanese and other Arabs kidnapped by the Israeli terrorist ‘state’ for years. Israel had other plans.

After 33 days of the continuous relentless Israeli bombing of Lebanon, the Israeli regime of Ehud Olmert was begging their patrons and friends to enforce a ceasefire, they realized their bank of targets was false and they failed to achieve any military victory over Hezb Allah which in turn started retaliating by bombing Israeli forces and wiping out entire Israeli tank columns and the Hezb Allah chief vowed to start bombing the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv in retaliation for the Israeli bombing of the Lebanese capital Beirut, and after Hezb Allah destroyed live on TV one of Israel’s most advanced navy ships, an INS Hanit, a Sa’ar 5-class corvette, Hezb Allah chief Hassan Nasr Allah telling the Lebanese people live on TV: ‘Look at the Israeli navy ship at sea which was bombing you, now look at it how it will burn out.’

Israel failed to achieve the goals of its years-long planned military aggression, Hezb Allah managed to achieve not only their set goal of exchanging the arrested Israeli IDF terrorists with the kidnapped Lebanese and Palestinians in Israeli captivity. Hezb Allah was declared a clear victor by all analysts including a special committee created by the Israelis themselves and the operation resulted in the collapse of the Israeli cabinet with its head Ehud Olmert sent to prison on some corruption charges.

Sheikh Qaouk to Al-Ahed: That’s What Haj Imad Planned in the Last Moments of Liberation

Sheikh Qaouk to Al-Ahed: That’s What Haj Imad Planned in the Last Moments of Liberation

By Maysaa Moukaddem

The phantom of Haj Imad Mughniyeh roaming through the liberated South, the last days of the liberation, the defense capabilities accumulated by the resistance, and the immediate hope for the liberation of Palestine; all of these are the core themes of which the member of Hezbollah’s Central Council, Sheikh Nabil Qaouk, has talked about to “Al-Ahed News” on the occasion of the anniversary of the Resistance and Liberation Day.

“Strengthening the Lebanese protection system is an ongoing day-to-day action, since the resistance doesn’t ease or rest and breaking the deterrence equation has become impossible,” Sheikh Qaouk affirms, stressing that the axis of resistance is integrated and coherent, and is now stronger and tougher than ever before. Gaza’s interference of its resistance and its missiles as a way of defending al-Quds is a historic achievement and a surprise to the ‘Israeli’ enemy and what happened confirms that the liberation of Palestine as a whole and that the end of the occupation is no longer a dream, a motto, or a wish.

Regarding the great jihadi leader Haj Imad Mughniyeh, Sheikh Qaouk reveals that “In preparation for the Victory Festival in Bint Jbeil, Haj Radwan said that the victory is incomplete without the release of prisoners and that he is currently preparing for an abduction that will ensure the liberation of all prisoners and detainees, as victory is only complete with their return.” Indeed, on Wednesday 24/5/2000, he went on a tour across the area overlooking the Shebaa farms for this exact purpose. He planned the operation all by himself and supervised its maneuver.

The full text of the interview with Sheikh Nabil Qaouk reads as follows:

-Twenty-one years have passed after the liberation of southern Lebanon; How far have the resistance’s capabilities to protect and deter the enemy gone?

With every new dawn, the capabilities of the resistance are enhancing in both quantity and quality and the deterrence equation with the enemy becomes stronger. Therefore, it leads to greater protection and preservation of Lebanon’s territory, people and sovereignty. Strengthening Lebanon’s protection system is an ongoing day-to-day action, since the resistance doesn’t ease or rest and breaking the deterrence equation has become impossible. It was the liberation in 2000 that brought the nation into the dawn of victories. It is true that May represents the “Nakba”, however, the resistance strategy made May a symbol of victory from Lebanon to Palestine and throughout the nation.

-How does the unified Axis of Resistance face challenges?

The Axis of Resistance is integrated and coherent. It seeks common goals and is based on a strategy to confront the aggressive ‘Israeli’-American project against Palestine, the region and its peoples. It is the centerpiece of those who have refused to surrender to the enemy, humiliate their peoples and undermine their causes, existence and identity.

This Axis, today, has become stronger, tougher and more coherent than ever.

The unity of this axis is reflected in its positions, its performance and its triumph of its causes and components, thereby it moves like a single unit, so whenever someone is down, the whole group comes to the rescue.

With every victory against the ‘Israeli’ enemy, we recall the spirit of Haj Qassem Soleimani, who has strengthened and developed the resistance’s strategy and besieged the enemy with missiles from everywhere.

-What is the importance of entering the Gaza Strip today along with the popular Intifada in the West Bank and al-Quds and standing by the Maqdessis [people of al-Quds]?

The interference of Gaza’s resistance and missiles as a way of defending al-Quds is a historic achievement and a surprise to the ‘Israeli’ enemy. Gaza’s resistance has dropped all attempts of division and partition that the enemy has worked on ever since the occupation. Today, from Gaza to al-Quds, along with the West Bank to the 48-lands, the Palestinians have said their one unified word, “Palestine will always be united from the river to the sea,” and all attempts to “domestication” and “Israelization” fell after decades of consolidating these attempts. Gaza’s involvement in the confrontation contributed to this historic achievement, which has exposed the enemy’s weakness and its illusion of power, and has enhanced the possibility of the entity’s downfall and the demise of its occupation.

What happened confirms that the liberation of Palestine as a whole and the end of the occupation is no longer a dream, a motto, or a wish. It’s rather a reality that materializes and appears at every resistance day. The strategic victory in the Battle of the “Al-Quds Sword” proves the fact that al-Quds is closer to liberation. The victory in the Battle of the “Al-Quds Sword” renewed the life of the Palestinian cause and tore Trump’s decisions apart.

-How does Hezbollah express its help and support for the Palestinians and the resistance today? At what level do they carry out their coordination and communication?

Hezbollah was and will always be the first supporter of Palestine and will never change. This is our source of pride and dignity and it is fully in line with our vision and strategy. Palestine and its liberation are at the center of our resistance’s project and objectives. The Palestinian resistance has defined the type and form of support that will help it in the battle, in which Hezbollah was proactive in providing assistance determined by the Palestinian resistance. Coordination and communication with the Palestinian resistance is a continuous and lasting process at various levels. The resistance in Lebanon is in one ditch, and with the Palestinian resistance in one confrontation, along with being in one battle against ‘Israel.’

*Haj Imad

– There are details related to the jihadi leader Haj Imad Mughniyeh during the days of liberation: How did he move between villages? Was the idea to capture ‘Israeli’ soldiers at the time a way to get prisoners out of occupation prisons? Why was the decision to quickly destroy all the ‘Israeli’ sites after the enemy was defeated?

Haj Imad used to travel as one of the people returning to their villages. On Monday 22/5/2000 he got in the middle of a crowd of people and took the Majdel Selm-Tallousa road on foot until he reached Hula, a village on the border of Palestine. And there he stood by the fence and, for the first time, inhaled the Palestinian air. It was the most beautiful moment of his life.

Haj Imad Mughniyeh worked to pursue the enemy from village to another on the basis that the withdrawal would be under fire to highlight the enemy’s defeat.

In preparation for the Victory Festival in Bint Jbeil, Haj Radwan said that the victory is incomplete without the release of prisoners and that he is currently preparing for an abduction that will ensure the liberation of all prisoners and detainees, for victory is only complete with their return. And indeed, on Wednesday 24/5/2000, he toured the area overlooking the Shebaa Farms in order to achieve this purpose, planning the operation himself and overseeing its maneuver.

Haj Imad didn’t trust the enemy as the defeat was imposed on it. And Haj Imad feared at the time that the enemy could return quickly to these sites, so he destroyed them to impede any attempt of their return, and in order not to have fortified sites adjacent to the border in the future, which the enemy could benefit from in any future war.

Every night we used to meet Haj Imad and the leaders of the resistance operation, until after midnight, to set the measures that must be taken on the next day. And before entering Ein Ebel, Debl, and Rmaysh, the procedures were strict and the resistance members were told not to enter these three villages armed. Haj Imad used to personally follow up on this report in order to ensure that there was no fear and panic among the inhabitants of these villages; since instilling fear of the resistance among the people is an ‘Israeli’ goal that ‘Israel’ has been pursuing.

He personally drove his car to Ein Ebel, where a number of men from Ain Ebel followed him with their cars. Haj Imad’s companions were worried about these men and intended to talk them, but Haj Imad refused and ordered to leave them so that they can be reassured and return to their families so they can reassure them as well, and that is what happened.

During the exit of Haj Imad from Ain Ebel and at the Bint Jbeil Junction, he saw a car filled with armed men, and feared that they would enter Ain Ebel with their weapons and cause tension in the village. So he stepped out of the car and ordered them to leave. He then asked the military intelligence officers, who were there, to prevent these men from entering the village.

Haj Imad roamed the border inch by inch from Naqoura to Jabal Al-Sheikh, as he checked all points and stepped out of his car in several places; which took a long time. And we had a congregational prayer in the presence of Haj Imad directly at the border strip with occupied Palestine.

– How did the Secretary-General of Hezbollah follow up on the details of the last days?

Moment by moment, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, was following the events and communicating with all factions. And after watching TV, the Secretary-General asked why there were more than one color for Hezbollah’s flag and he requested that all flags should be unified in yellow.

The Humiliation of ’Israel’ in the Eyes of Imad Mughniyeh

The Humiliation of ’Israel’ in the Eyes of Imad Mughniyeh

By Latifa Al-Husseiny

Beirut – You never run out of stories about the time of liberation. It is like a spring of fresh water on a high mountain pouring on the ground. Twenty full years of Imad Mughniyeh and his comrades in jihad. There was planning, implementation, and then achieving an Arab victory that was only difficult in the dictionary of the weak.

It is May 18, 2000. The beginning of the “Israeli” withdrawal from southern Lebanon begins to unfold. The resistance and its mujahideen are prepared and aware of what is going on. Its military leadership and its cadres are meeting in a village.

The goal is to continuously assess the situation to develop hypothetical scenarios in the event of any major retreat by the enemy. Hajj Imad is heading the meeting. He, along with his cohorts of resistance officers, are providing estimates while examining hypotheticals and sny potential plans the Zionists might adopt. Before those in attendance, he repeats one chorus: the “Israeli” enemy must leave humiliated and under fire.

For this purpose, numerous meetings with the command of military operations and mobilization forces were held. Various sources of fire including the artillery and launchers were stationed in the south. Reconnaissance of the enemy’s movements and soldiers was carried out a week before the liberation of the south, especially in light of the evacuations that were taking place along some of the posts. All this was overseen by Hajj Imad personally.

The enemy’s retreat rolled on. Qantara, Al-Qoussair, Deir Siriane, and Tayibe were liberated from the occupation under the strikes of the Mujahideen, while the locals headed to the occupied gate and removed it.

The resistance leadership drew up alternative plans on how to pounce the Lahad army at the time. It also deployed military police to the southern border villages to prevent any disturbances during the “Israeli” escape.

Indeed, some Lahad forces surrendered in Adaisseh, while others fled under fire from the resistance. Bint Jbeil and the towns in that district were liberated. The liberation rumbled from Tayibe to Hula to Beit Yahoun until the miniature security belt drawn up by the then “Israeli” War Minister Ehud Barak to protect the northern settlements collapsed.

A leader in the Islamic Resistance tells al-Ahed about those days.

“We stayed in the south, watching closely how the “Israelis” fled. Hajj Imad managed the military missions and distributed tasks. When the operations began, he was at the helm of those checking the situation. He went to the Palestinian border without escort.”

On May 23 and May 24, “Israeli” soldiers continued their withdrawal. From Ainatha to Kfar Tibnit to the Khiam detention center, the Zionists withdrew defeated. Hajj Imad was waiting, while the resistance men spread around and targeted them.

On the final day of throwing out the occupiers, the battle ended at the Fatima Gate at the border. Through it, the last “Israeli” soldier fled. That moment was historic.

While Benny Gantz, the commander of the so-called Lebanon Liaison Unit in the “Israeli” army, closed the gate and put the key under one of the rocks, Hajj Imad was a few meters away looking at how the “Israelis” were humiliated.

He stood in front of the Fatima Gate, while the resistance apparatus deployed and secured all the villages. Inhaling the breath of freedom and the fragrance of Palestine, he did not care about the people who had been trailing him for years. Those people were fleeing broken, looking for a refuge to hide their failures and surrender. On the other hand, Hajj Imad was defying everything to take a look at the Galilee and beyond. He had accomplished the first step of the inevitable liberation.

Six years after the 2000 liberation of the south, the July War came. Hajj Imad led 33 days of confrontations with the enemy. He thwarted the Zionists’ promise. It was another divine victory on the road to Palestine. Angered by the defeat, “Israel” decided to take revenge. For this purpose, it utilized its tools and agents. The meeting was in Syria.

Away from the commotion of the world, a group of leaders of the resistance axis gathered in one of the party’s centers in the Kafr Souseh area in Damascus.

On the evening of February 12, 2008, a group of leaders of the Revolutionary Guards headed by the commander of the Quds Force, Hajj Qassem Soleimani, met leaders of the Islamic Resistance, headed by Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.

It was a military summit that lasted for about an hour. One of the leaders who attended the meeting explained that the main reason for the meeting was to conduct an evaluation of the general situation at the level of the resistance factions. However, the special relationship between Hajj Imad and Hajj Qassem set the tone of the meeting.

There was laughter and smiles as if they felt that this would be a farewell. Hajj Qassem told our interlocutor, “What Hajj Imad says, I implement. I am a soldier of Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.” When the latter heard that sentence, he quickly said, “No, we are brothers.”

The evaluation session was over, and it was time to depart. Hajj Qassem Soleimani stood at the elevator and embraced Hajj Imad with great affection. That moment was engraved in the memory of the people present. It was proof that the relationship between the two men surpassed the cause. It was a relationship of spirit and sacrifice similar to the relationship between al-Hussayn and al-Abbas (PBUT). They shared redemption, responsibility, and a high jihadist spirit.

Five minutes later, Hajj Imad left to carry out an important mission. When he got to his car, he was martyred.

Hajj Qassem never knew Hajj Imad’s destination. He heard a loud explosion and was informed of the news. He went back to find his companion dead.

What was the nature of the meeting they agreed on minutes earlier? It was a painful separation. However, 12 years later that conclusion was repeated with Hajj Qassem’s spirit rising to the supreme kingdom. Both men’s blood was spilt on the road to Palestine for the sake of Al-Quds.

Hezbollah Looking for the Day on Which It Joins Palestinian Resistance Fight against Israeli Enemy on All Fronts in Palestine: Sayyed Safieddine

May 17, 2021

Head of Hezbollah Executive Council, Sayyed Hashem Safieddine, pointed out that the Palestinian resistance has managed to settle the military confrontation with the Israeli occupation army, adding that what the Zionist enemy can still do is killing civilians and destroying buildings.

“The Israeli enemy is repeating the same follies it committed during 2006 war .”

During Hezbollah ceremony held in Dahyeh’s Haret Hreik in support of Gaza against the Israeli aggression, Sayyed Safieddine stressed that the Israeli enemy is obliged to acknowledge the new repercussions of the formula imposed by the Palestinian resistance missiles, or that it will pay a heavy price.

Sayyed Safieddine indicated that defending Palestine protects the entire Umma, adding that this battle has extinguished the flame of sedition in the Umma.

In this context, Sayyed Safieddine highlighted of the former military commander of Hezbollah, the martyr Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, and the former commander of IRGC’s Quds Force, the martyr General Qassem Suleimani, in building up the rocketry power of the Palestinian resistance.

Sayyed Safieddine noted that Hezbollah has remarkably augmented it military capabilities since 2006 war, adding that the Resistance Party is now looking for the Day on which it joins the Palestinian Resistance fight against Israeli enemy on all the fronts.

During the ceremony, the Secretary General of the Islamic Jihad Movement, Ziyad Nakhala, stressed that Palestinian resistance will continue fighting the Zionist enemy till gaining the victory.

For his part, Osama Hamdan, the commander of Hamas movement in Lebanon, stressed that the Israeli aggression unified the Palestinians, adding that the Palestinian resistance is establishing new formulas in the confrontation with the Zionist enemy.

الجواب كان دائماً، وسيبقى، هو خيانة الأنظمة العربية والإسلامية وتآمرها على الشعب الفلسطيني الذي أثبت عظمته بصموده في وجه أعتى كيان مجرم.

كان هذا التضامن، وسيبقى، كفيلاً بتلقين الكيان الصهيوني الدرس الذي يستحقّه على طريق التخلّص منه.
كان هذا التضامن، وسيبقى، كفيلاً بتلقين الكيان الصهيوني الدرس الذي يستحقّه على طريق التخلّص منه

في نهاية العام الماضي، أصدرتُ كتاباً عن القضية الفلسطينية بعنوان “فلسطين لي أنا”، يتألف من 552 صفحة. استغرقت عملية الكتابة أكثر من 3 سنوات، لا بسبب تاريخ القضية الطويل فحسب، بل أيضاً بسبب ظروف العمل الصحافي، بما في ذلك السجن والملاحقات الأمنية والقانونية التي تعرضتُ لها بدءاً من نهاية العام 2016. 

خلال هذه الفترة، وإضافة إلى كل ما أعرفه عن القضية الفلسطينية وكل ما عاصرته من أحداث، منذ أن كنت طالباً في ابتدائية مدينة جرابلس، وكان أحد أساتذتي مصرياً يدعى محمد نور الدين الطنطاوي، قرأت عشرات الكتب ومئات المقالات عن فلسطين وتاريخها، وهو ما كنت مهتماً به أساساً منذ صغري، إذ التقيت الزعيم الراحل جمال عبد الناصر عندما زار مدينة حلب في شباط/فبراير 1959. 

مرَّت كل هذه السنوات الطويلة وأنا مؤمن بالقضية الفلسطينية، وأعتقد أنني على اطّلاع على أدق تفاصيلها، بما في ذلك جوانبها الدينية التي تلتقي وتتناقض في كثير من الأوقات مع الأساطير التي يشتهر بها اليهود. ومن دون الضلوع في هذا الجانب الصعب، إذ إن لكل دين أطروحاته الخاصة، فالحديث عن القضية الفلسطينية لا يحتاج إلى كثير من التعب لوضع النقاط على الحروف في تفاصيلها، وهو ما حاولت أن أثبته في كتابي. 

إن السبب الرئيسي لوجود قضية فلسطينية هو تآمر الأنظمة العربية والإسلامية ضد الشعب الفلسطيني، والسبب الثاني في ذلك هو تآمر الدول الاستعمارية والإمبريالية وغدرها، وفي مقدمتها بريطانيا وفرنسا، ولاحقاً أميركا، التي أدت الدور الرئيسي في قرار التقسيم في الأمم المتحدة، ثم قدمت كل أنواع الدعم للكيان الصهيوني المصطنع. أما السبب الثالث، فهو الانقسام الفلسطينيّ الداخليّ، وسببه إلى حد كبير هو السببان الأول والثاني. وإلا، لا يمكن لأي إنسان عاقل أن يقتنع بـ”معجزة” اليهود في هجرتهم من كل أنحاء العالم إلى فلسطين، ثم نجاحهم في إقامة كيانهم الديني والسياسي والجغرافي في نصف الأرض الفلسطينية في العام 1947، على الرغم من اعتراض الدول العربية وشعوبها آنذاك. 

كما لا يمكن لأي إنسان عاقل ومنطقي أن يتقبّل الأساطير اليهودية التي تتحدّث عن أحقية اليهود في هذه الأرض وقدراتهم العظيمة على الانتصار على الدول العربية، ومعها الإسلامية. 

الجواب دائماً كان، وسيبقى، هو خيانة الأنظمة العربية والإسلامية وتآمرها على الشعب الفلسطيني الذي أثبت عظمته بصموده حتى الآن في وجه أعتى كيان مجرم وقاتل وظالم. السؤال هنا، وكما كان في كتابي: إذا استمر هذا التآمر، هل سيعني ذلك نهاية القضية الفلسطينية وغياب ما تبقى منها عربياً وإسلامياً وإنسانياً؟

الجواب من دون أيّ تردد: لا، لن تنتهي القضية الفلسطينية إلا بزوال “إسرائيل”، وهو ما سيتحقق، عاجلاً أو أجلاً، ولكن خلال سنوات قليلة قادمة. ليس من العقل والمنطق، ولو بذرّة واحدة، أن يحكم 7 مليون يهودي، ولهم مشاكلهم المعقّدة، من التمييز العنصري إلى الأزمات الاجتماعية والنفسية والأخلاقية، 400 مليون عربي يقولون “إن القدس قبلتهم الأولى”.

كما ليس من المنطق والعقل أن يقرر 20 مليون يهودي، وهو عددهم في العالم برمّته، مصير كل المعادلات الإقليمية والدولية ومستقبلها، من دون أن نتجاهل التشابك بين مصالحهم ومصالح الدول والقوى الإمبريالية، فالعقل والمنطق يقولان إنَّ أحلام اليهود هذه، مهما كانت انتصاراتهم حتى الآن، على وشك أن تنهار، مهما نجحوا في استعباد العديد من الأنظمة العربية والإسلامية. وقد بات واضحاً أن الخيانة متأصّلة في جيناتهم، وحتى في ما تبقّى من عروقهم الناشفة.

لقد أثبتت السنوات العشر الماضية صحّة ما يقوله المنطق والعقل، عندما صمدت المقاومة في سوريا ولبنان وإيران والعراق وفلسطين واليمن في وجه التآمر العربي والإسلامي والعالمي الَّذي كان هدفه تدمير المنطقة لتصبح لقمة سائغة ليهود العالم، الذين ما زالوا يحلمون باستعباد شعوب المنطقة من النيل إلى الفرات، وإلا لما فكروا في الهجرة من بلدانهم التي كانوا يعيشون فيها منذ مئات السنين إلى فلسطين، وهم لا يرتبطون ببعضهم بعضاً إلا بالديانة، لأنهم من أعراق مختلفة. 

هذا الأمر يتطلَّب توحيد الخطاب العربي والإسلامي ضد سفسطات اليهود، الذين يقولون إنَّهم من قومية واحدة، وهم يكذبون على العالم في ما يتعلق بـ”المحرقة النازية” التي أنكرها العديد من المؤرخين اليهود، ولكن اعترف بها العديد من العرب والمسلمين الخونة، رغم أنها من مسؤولية الغرب، فلماذا يدفع الفلسطينيون ثمنها!

وأياً كان عدد هؤلاء الخونة والمتآمرين، وكلّ من وقف، وما زال، إلى جانب اليهود، وهو ما رأيناه خلال سنوات ما يسمى بـ”الربيع العربي”، فالتطورات الأخيرة أثبتت بكل وضوح أنّ “إسرائيل” إلى زوال محتوم من دون أيّ شك، فالشعب الفلسطيني بكلّ مكوناته وفصائله بات مؤمناً بأنه الوحيد، وبإرادته الذاتية، الذي يستطيع أن يتصدى للإرهاب الصهيوني ويدافع عن نفسه. وفي الختام، يتخلَّص من هذا الكيان المصطنع، ليعود كلّ يهودي إلى المكان الذي جاء منه، ويصبحوا جميعاً قضية تلك البلدان!

كما بات واضحاً أنَّ السلاح هو السبيل الوحيد بالنسبة إلى الشعب الفلسطيني لتحقيق أهدافه، وما عليه إلا أن يحصل على هذا السلاح ممن قدّمه له حتى الآن، على الرغم من كل الصعوبات والمخاطر والتضحيات، وكان آخرها اغتيال الشهيد قاسم سليماني. وكان قبله استشهاد العشرات من رجال المقاومة في لبنان وسوريا، ومنهم عماد مغنية وسمير القنطار، ومعهم كل من جاء إلى نصرتهم من إيران أو أي مكان آخر.

لقد كان هذا التضامن، وسيبقى، كفيلاً بتلقين الكيان الصهيوني الدرس الذي يستحقّه على طريق التخلّص منه، ما دام يرفض السلام، فلا يمكن لمواطني “إسرائيل” أن يقبلوا بهذا السّلام، لأنهم جاؤوا إلى فلسطين وهم مؤمنون بالعقيدة الصهيونية التي تقول “إن فلسطين لليهود، وإن القدس عاصمتهم الأبدية والتاريخية والدينية”.

وما على الشعب الفلسطيني ومن معه من الشعوب العربية والإسلامية وشعوب العالم الشريفة، إلا أن يثبتوا العكس، وهو ما يعني المزيد من التلاحم والتضامن الفلسطيني الداخلي أولاً، وبالتالي العمل الاستراتيجي مع دول وقوى المقاومة والممانعة. ومن دونها، لن يستطيع أحد أن يلقن الصهاينة الدرس الذي يستحقونه، والذي بات قريباً.

لهذا السّبب، كانت سوريا التي وقفت دائماً إلى جانب المقاومة الفلسطينية الهدف الرئيسي في مجمل مخططات الغرب و”إسرائيل”، بعد تحييد مصر والأردن باتفاقيتي “كامب ديفيد” و”وادي عربة”. كما كانت إيران الهدف الآخر في مخططات الغرب و”إسرائيل” ومشاريعهم، لأنَّها وقفت، وما تزال، إلى جانب سوريا وفلسطين. وقد انتصرت دمشق وطهران معاً في أصعب معادلة شملت، وما زالت، العنصر الأخطر بالنسبة إلى الكيان الصّهيونيّ، الّذي يعرف أنّ زواله بات قريباً على يد رجال المقاومة الإسلامية في لبنان ومن معهم داخل الأرض الفلسطينيّة، وهو ما أثبتته تطوّرات الأيام القليلة الماضية، وقبل ذلك حرب تموز/يوليو 2006.

كما أثبتت التفاصيل العسكرية الدقيقة والخاصة بهذه التطورات أن عسكر الكيان الصهيوني جبناء، على الرغم من كل ما قيل ويقال عن ترسانتهم الحربية، التي لم يتبقَّ منها سوى القنابل النووية أو الجرثومية أو الكيماوية التي باتوا يترددون في استخدامها، لأن المقاومة بدورها ستردّ الصاع صاعين.

هذا الاحتمال، بدوره، سيستعجل مسار زوال “إسرائيل”، ما لم تتراجع عن سياساتها العدوانيّة الإرهابية وتحترم حقوق الشّعب الفلسطينيّ، والشعبين السوري واللبناني أيضاً، وتنسحب من جميع أراضيهم المحتلّة، وهو الاحتمال الأضعف، لأن “إسرائيل” التي لم ترضَ بـ22 ألف كم مربع من الأرض الفلسطينية، تحلم بـ2.2 مليون كم مربع من الهلال الخصيب الذي يمتدّ من النيل إلى حدود الفرات ودجلة وجبال الأناضول.

وقد أثبتت السنوات السبعون من “قيام الدولة العبرية” أنَّ شعوب هذه المنطقة والجغرافيا العربية عموماً لن تتقبل بهذا الكيان المصطنع، مهما كان تآمر أنظمتها على القضية الفلسطينية، وهي ستزول أيضاً مع زوال “إسرائيل”.

Journalist: […] Before getting to the heart of the matter, we must talk about what is happening in Palestine, especially since the Palestinian cause was very important to Sayed Zulfiqar. How does Hezbollah see the violent Israeli escalation against Palestinians in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and Gaza? What are the challenges & horizons of this escalation, and why is it happening now?

Sayed Safi al-Din: In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Let me first congratulate Muslims on the last days of the month of Ramadan, and for Eid al-Fitr, which will be celebrated in a day or two. I ask God the Most High to make these occasions a blessing for our Ummah (worldwide Muslim community), for the Resistance fighters and for the combatants. I have special thoughts for the families of the martyrs, the family of Sayed Badr al-Din, his daughters, his sons, his parents and his brothers, as well as all his loved ones, and all the families of the martyrs. I ask God the Most High to fill them with blessings in these days.

I must also extend sincere and strong greetings, from the bottom of my heart, to the soul and spirit of the Mujaheedin in Palestine, to the (Palestinian) people of Al-Quds (Jerusalem), to its men, women, young people, children, and the young people of Gaza, to all the heroic fighters of all the Palestinian (Resistance) factions. We salute them with respect and thank them for everything they do during these days and hours, in these very minutes. They defend the honor of the entire Ummah. Al-Quds represents the honor of the whole Muslim Community, the dignity of the whole Muslim Community.

What is happening in Palestine today is a sign of the end of a stage, and the start of a new stage (of the Arab-Israeli conflict). We have witnessed, in recent years, some examples of Israeli and American arrogance and hubris, and examples of the servility, betrayal and humiliation (of Arab rulers) who have vilely crept in the direction of normalization (of their relations with Israel). Some thought this was the last Act to be played, but we told them it was not the end, because the Muslim community is bigger and stronger than that. The Ummah in which there are so many Resistants, martyrs and leaders such as Sayed Mustafa Badr al-Din, for whom Palestine was in the eyes, in the heart and in all his existence… We said that this Muslim Community concealed many blessings, strength, capacity and greatness, and that it was capable of shaping (itself) the future.

The events of Al-Quds occurred, with the events that followed, until the use of rockets yesterday and today, by the hundreds, a veritable storm of rockets which shook the Zionist entity in order to say (two things): first, to tell the Israelis that the Resistance was much stronger than they imagined; and second, to tell the Zionists and Americans as well and all the normalizers, cowards and traitors (of the Arab-Muslim world) that the Palestinian people was much stronger, and that he would never abandon Palestine or Al-Quds.

These upheavals happening today will open new doors, create a new reality. A reality fraught with (huge) consequences, namely new equations. The equation of victories, the equation of the near Liberation (of Palestine territories) with the grace of God the Most High. These are equations that are based on the sacrifices of recent years. In recent years, there have been many sacrifices on the part of the Palestinian people, the Resistance, the Resistance Axis, in all directions and on all fronts and battlefields. All of these sacrifices resulted in what we see today, some of the scenes we see today. And what is yet to come is greater, much greater with the grace of God the Most High. […]

Journalist: To come back to what is happening in Palestine, what did Al-Quds and Palestine represent in the eyes of Sayed Zulfiqar? What emotional and jihadist ties linked him to the Palestinian cause?

Sayed Safi al-Din: Palestine represents jihad, and his first connection to it is (through) weapons, guns and bullets. He began his journey as a fighter in the ranks of the Palestinian Resistance (during the Fedayeen era in Lebanon). He has (strong) links, experiences, relationships, participation (with them). After that, his experience within Hezbollah was mainly focused on Al-Quds and Palestine. It’s no secret, it’s the truth. He also belongs to this culture. As far as he was concerned, Palestine was the compass, the central cause, the ultimate goal and hope. Al-Quds was for him the place where we had to make all the sacrifices to reach the stage of its Liberation, because by liberating Al-Quds (Jerusalem), we will not only liberate the holy places, but we will recover all the honor and all the dignity that have been stolen from us in all the past decades. As far as we are concerned, Al-Quds is everything we live for. And in these days (of war in Gaza), we feel more than ever the presence of such figures as Sayed Zulfiqar, Hajj Imad Moghniyeh, and the great leader Hajj Qassem Soleimani: in the end, (even if) they have found martyrdom in Syria, in Iraq or anywhere else, their essential cause, their greatest hope, what their whole being tended towards was to bring the Muslim world from one point to another, until it reaches Al-Quds and can finally liberate the Holy City.

And today, yes, as we have heard in some comments, those rockets that have been launched (against Israel) are the hope of Hajj Qassem Soleimani. They carry the hope of Hajj Imad (Moghniyeh). They carry the fiery aspiration of Sayed Zulfiqar. They carry all these (pure) souls. It is these souls who have acted and made all efforts relentlessly, (taking all the risks and) making all the sacrifices to ensure that this ballistic capability reaches the hands of the Resistance in Gaza. And thank God, today, these capabilities arrived in Gaza! These abilities grow and develop. The first credit goes to the Palestinian fighters there, of course, whatever their faction, but those who acted, supported and allowed all this, are these martyrs, these (Iranian and Lebanese) leaders, including Sayed Zulfiqar, who worked day and night for the Resistance inside Palestine to obtain great capacities, and even colossal capacities.

Journalist: So Sayed Mustapha Badr al-Din helped transfer skills and support to Resistance factions inside occupied Palestine?

Sayed Safi al-Din: He did more than contribute! He acted constantly (for the Palestinian Resistance)!

Journalist: What did this action consist of?

Sayed Safi al-Din: Transfering the experience, training, maintaining contact with all the resistant Palestinian forces, helping them to obtain the capacities and skills in all the fields, whether it has to do with obtaing weapons, the ability to manufacture them, their handling and use, all these abilities. Generally speaking, Hezbollah has played a big role in this regard, and we are very proud of it. It is our duty anyway. All of our commanders participated in that. This is neither a secret nor a shame, on the contrary, it is a matter of pride!

Journalist: Eminent Sayed, how important is the equation imposed by the Palestinian Resistance in linking the fate of Jerusalem to that of Gaza? How will this equation affect rules of engagement and the balance of power in the future?

Sayed Safi al-Din: If you remember correctly, this Gaza which just drowned the Israelis (under a deluge of rockets), the enemy considered that all Gaza could do was struggle its way through the various calamities in which it had been abandoned, struggling to cope with the problems created by the occupier and the United States, whether by the siege, pressures, (crippling) policies, etc., and therefore Israel considered it had nothing to fear from them. I am not going to recall all these well-known elements, which are part of History. But today, this Gaza is not only taking back its life, its future and everything it has in Palestine and Al-Quds, no! The very soul of Gaza now arises in Al-Quds! The soul of the Resistance that the occupier wanted to crush and suffocate in Gaza is present today in Al-Quds, in the West Bank, and will rise tomorrow in all the territories occupied in 1948 and throughout Israel!

The most important consequence of what is happening today is that the Palestinian cause is revived everywhere, at all levels, with all its weapons, all its fighters, all its rockets/missiles, all over (historical) Palestine! And that’s just the beginning!

Israel wanted to neutralize Gaza, through massacres and destruction, and then to neutralize a whole part of the (occupied) West Bank, through the separation wall. You have seen how the Separation Wall is built in a sinuous and even vicious way, with areas off-limits to Palestinians (making life impossible for them). Israel considered the territories conquered in 1948 to be safe, and part of the “historic Israeli entity” forever. The Arabs could forget (the territories of) 1948, they were irremediably absorbed! Forget Gaza, which is out of the game! (That’s what Israel thought). There were still a few besieged places in the West Bank, whether in Hebron or elsewhere. But the reality is that today, all of historic Palestine is set ablaze and embracing the Resistance! Today all of Palestine is resisting! All of Palestine is Al-Quds! This city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) that they wanted to erase from the Palestinian cause, making forget even its (Arabic) name and its memory, whether through the Deal of the Century, the displacement of the American Embassy (from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem), and all these campaigns (to liquidate the Palestinian cause), the humiliating visits of some cowardly and enslaved Arab (regimes), unfortunately, the promises of establishing normal relations, etc. But (despite all this), Al-Quds today shines. She shines through her martyrs, she shines through the martyrs of Gaza. These Israelis today are killing children, women and men who die because they defend Al-Quds! These martyrs make Al-Quds even more resplendent, and give it even greater value in the minds of Palestinians, in the minds of Arabs and in the minds of (all) Muslims (worldwide).

What happens today will have very big, even grandiose consequences, as I told you before. Of course, now is the time for battle, not for analysis, now is the time for battle. It will be time to draw all the conclusions afterwards. In this time of battle, our common duty is to stand with the Palestinian people. We salute these efforts, these sacrifices, we salute these heroes, men, women and children, who went yesterday at dawn to the holy mosque of Al-Aqsa to enter and assert their right to be present there, at Sheikh Jarrah district, at the Damascus gate, everywhere, at every point (from where the settlers and police were trying to drive them out); we salute these men, these women, these young people, these children, all those who sacrifice themselves. We salute the fighters who, as I said, restore honor to the Ummah. We send them a thousand greetings, and with the grace of God, the whole Muslim world will be with them, the whole Arab world will be with them.

What is happening today is (the triumph of) the truth. The truth of our (Arab-Muslim) world is visible to everyone. Our Ummah is (deeply) steeped in Resistance, its inner core is Resistance. Its history, its culture, its identity are the Resistance! Such are our peoples, such is our (Arab-Muslim) Community. There may be, in this or that country, economic, political, or any other kind of problems, we can say that the Arab world is drowned in the so-called Arab Spring, whether in Egypt, in Tunisia, Syria, Iraq or anywhere else, but despite all their efforts to present these realities as preponderant to exhaust the peoples of our region, today, Palestine, Al-Quds and Gaza are reviving all these elements of strength present within our Community. And our Ummah declares to the United States, Israel and all the cowards that no, it is stronger than that, greater than that, and able to shape her future. And that’s exactly what she’ll do.

We are talking about realities and equations today, not empty slogans or hopes, not at all. As I told you at the beginning, what happened in Syria was no small thing, and what happened in Iraq was no small thing, at the level of the action of Resistance (reference to the victory against ISIS). And what is happening in Palestine now is no small thing. What happened in Yemen is no small thing. This victorious resistance of the Resistance Axis, among other consequences clearly visible today, brings the peoples of the Muslim world, little by little, to join this Resistance Axis, until it becomes the dominant choice and priority for our entire region.

See Nasrallah explains why Qassem Soleimani is unique and how he defeated ISIS in Iraq

And today I can say categorically and without any hesitation that yesterday and today, we had glaring proof of Trump’s failure when he targeted Hajj Qassem Soleimani, may God be pleased with him. The Al-Quds Force (Revolution Guards Corps, led by Soleimani), which spearheaded this Axis of Resistance, is now achieving very great victories. Of course, it is the Palestinian people who achieve these victories (in occupied Palestine), but at the level of vision and (common) cause, what happens there is one of the consequences of the work of the Hajj Qassem. And with the grace of God, what will come in the next battles will be even greater.

Journalist: Can you tell us, given your close proximity to Palestinian Resistance factions, to what extent we can say that Gaza still holds surprises and secret cards in its hands, which it can use if the confrontation extends?

Sayed Safi al-Din: It’s up to them to talk about this. The Palestinian Resistance, through its fighting and resistant factions, is capable of expressing itself, whether through declarations, through missiles, through actions, when it sees fit. This is their exclusive right, and we do not have to interfere with it. But what I know (and can say) in general is that the capacities of the Resistance in Palestine are very great, in terms of time (they can keep pace for weeks and months), capacities, weapons, the ability to fight (victoriously), etc. Their capacities are great, much more than what Israel can imagine.

Journalist: I am told in my earphone that Ben-Gurion Airport has just been targeted. What does this indicate? Is it a strong symbol?

Sayed Safi al-Din: To strike Tel Aviv is a very important thing, a remarkable qualitative development in terms of acts of Resistance. The same goes for the attack on Ben Gurion Airport. This is all due to the grace of God and the blessings that come with standing up for Al-Quds. The fact that Gaza has come into action in defense of Al-Quds brings great (divine) blessings. When the Islamic Community decides to defend Al-Quds, God pours out (huge) opportunities and benefits upon them.

Of course, all of this cannot happen without sacrifices. Whenever in a battle, the Islamic Resistance achieves great achievements, we must always remember that these exploits happen thanks to the grace of the blood of martyrs, the efforts of the fighters, the sacrifices, the patience and the endurance displayed by the Resistance, whether in Palestine, Lebanon or any other place.

Palestine was reflected in Anis al-Naqqash’s entire life: political activist

March 12, 2021 – 10:53

TEHRAN – An Iraqi political activist says that Anis al-Naqqash’s life was greatly impacted by the Palestine cause as he spent his life to support the oppressed Palestinian people.

“Palestine was reflected in the whole life of the late Anis al-Naqqash from cradle to grave, until he was called ‘friend of Palestine’ and the Palestinian flag did not leave him until his honorable coffin was wrapped in it,” Hussein al-Dirani tells the Tehran Times.
“His relationship with Palestine is like the relationship of the soul to the body, oxygen to the lung, and the mother to her child,” al-Dirani comments.
Anis al-Naqqash, a seasoned Lebanese political activist concerning Islamic resistance, died at the age of 70. He died on February 22 after contracting the coronavirus.  
He was also a comrade of Imad Mughniyeh, a senior Hezbollah member who was assassinated in Syria in 2008, and the CIA claimed credit for his unlawful murder.

Following is the text of interview with al-Dirani:

Q: What are the achievements of the late Anis al-Naqqash as a resistace figure in the Islamic world?
 A: None of the writers, researchers, thinkers and politicians can comprehend the volume of organizational works and achievements of the late Anis al-Naqqash. 

He spent his honorable life in struggle, jihad, and thinking in order to support the deprived and the vulnerable people.

He was crafting and developing practical strategies to be practiced and applied on the ground. He made every effort to establish a school of thought by which everyone who believes in resistance, jihad, and change in the Arab and Islamic world could join in.

Q: Why did he focus on research and studies after a period of struggle and Jihad?

A: I think that Anis al-Naqqash believed that a continuous struggle entailed delving into the field of research and studies, therefore, he harnessed all his intellectual energies to secure and protect the achievements of the resistance movement. 

Just as the revolution needs honest revolutionaries who believe in the sacrifice for the message of the revolution and its success and victory, it requires sincere leaders, thinkers, and geniuses to maintain its dynamism and progress towards the goals and interests of peoples and nations in the region and the world.

Q: What are the works of Anis al-Naqqash in the field of research and science?
A: Naqqash had great and huge achievements in the field of research and science; he was the head and coordinator of the Aman Network for Strategic Studies, an analyst, and a global strategic political expert, brilliant in his insightful political outlook.

Anyone who wants to know and analyze the developments in West Asia, as well as conflicts and wars that are taking place in our Arab and Islamic world, was waiting for his media appearances.

One of his most important scientific and political researches that will see popularity among politicians, researchers, and thinkers after his death is his book “The Eastern Confederation; A Struggle between Identities and Policies”.

In this book, Naqqash sets out a strategy for uniting intellectual, political, and military efforts and energies in the Middle East (West Asia) in order to form a coalition to resist Zionist-American hegemony and authoritarianism.

Q: What are the main sources that actually inspired Anis al-Naqqash in his struggle and scientific life?

A: Before the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the late Anis al-Naqqash was a fighter in the front ranks of the Palestinian resistance in Lebanon and one of the most prominent security and military figures in it. He participated in military operations outside Lebanon for the sake of the Palestinian cause.

After the victory of the Islamic Revolution, Naqqash was associated with the Iranian revolutionaries, where he found his intellectual and revolutionary goals in line with this great revolution.
He served as a coordinator between the Islamic revolution and the Palestinian resistance and regarded the late Imam Khomeini, his honorable leader, and inspirer who possesses all the elements of leadership for the Ummah.

Q: What is the position of Palestine in Anis Naqqash’s thinking?

A: Palestine was reflected in the whole life of the late Anis al-Naqqash, from cradle to grave, until he was called “friend of Palestine” and the Palestinian flag did not leave him until his honorable coffin was wrapped in it.

His relationship with Palestine is like the relationship of the soul to the body, oxygen to the lung, and the mother to her child.

He gave Palestine all his breath, thought, and genius in support of Palestine, the resistance fighters, and the oppressed people.

General Suleimani, Imad Mughniyeh… Sayyed Nasrallah’s Devoted Comrades in Arms

February 18, 2021

Sayyed Suleimani Mughniyeh

Al-Manar Website Editor

In one of the stories told by General Qassem Suleimani on the 2006 July War in Lebanon, the iconic Iranian commander was about to face death along with Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah and prominent military commander in the Lebanese Resistance’s group Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.

“Once during the war, I was with Sayyed Nasrallah and Hajj Imad. We were about to face death,” Suleimani said in an interview in October 2019, referring to Mughniyeh, who was assassinated by Israeli Mossad in Damascus in February 12, 2008.

One of the places where the three were residing in during the war, in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh), was no longer safe, as narrated by Suleimani.

After leaving the site, the three men reached a place where they sat under a tree to take rest. Mughniyeh asked Suleimani to protect Sayyed Nasrallah, the Iranian general told the office for preservation and dissemination of the works of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei during the 2019 interview.

“Minutes later, Hajj Imad returned, driving a car. Just few moments after Sayyed Nasrallah and I rode the car, Israeli missiles hit the site,” General Suleimani said.

“Hajj Imad drove the car fast and just in few minutes we reached a remote area. As we realized that we were safe we had one reaction: we started to laugh,” General Suleimani added.

Smiling while narrating the story, General Suleimani concluded it by saying: “Till now, I can’t stop thinking about something that I couldn’t ask Hajj Imad about: Where did the car come from?!”

The interview with General Suleimani was just few months before his martyrdom in January 3, 2020, in a US strike near Baghdad airport. He was martyred along with Deputy Commander of Iraq’s Hashd Shaabi Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis.

Sayyed Nasrallah to the ‘Israelis’: Stop Playing with Fire, It Is the Era of the ‘Axis of Resistance’

Sayyed Nasrallah to the ‘Israelis’: Stop Playing with Fire, It Is the Era of the ‘Axis of Resistance’

By Zeinab Abdallah

Beirut – Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned the ‘Israeli’ enemy that the Lebanese resistance movement will strike sensitive Zionist military targets in case the enemy used a similar pretext to bomb Lebanese cities.

In a televised speech on Tuesday marking Hezbollah’s Martyr Leaders Day, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the occasion follows the 42nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution in Iran, which is an example on maintaining sovereignty and independence.

The resistance leader’s speech commemorated the martyrdom anniversaries of Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.

“Forty-two years have passed on the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran; The Isalmic Republic resisted and developed on every level until it became a great and considerable regional power,” His Eminence stated.

Regarding the Bahraini revolution’s February 14th anniversary, Sayyed Nasrallah further hailed the Bahraini people who sacrificed a lot to obtain their freedom, atop of them is Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, adding that “the Bahraini people are struggling to return their country to its normal situation after its rulers have turned it into a base for normalization with ‘Israel’.”

Praising the common characteristics of martyr leaders enjoyed, Sayyed Nasrallah said that they were dedicated to resistance and tolerated all hard circumstances to develop the project of resistance.

“The resistance of our martyr leaders developed and became followed by the enemy before the friend because it threatens its existence,” His Eminence underscored, noting that in our time, “We need stances similar to those of Sheikh Ragheb Harb to confront normalization with ‘Israel’.”

We preserve the will of Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi by preserving the resistance and serving the people, Sayyed Nasrallah added, stressing that “The most important service we offer to the people is to preserve their existence and defend their lands, dignity and country.”

“We carry on the will of Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi and work within it in all fields, and when an ‘Israeli’ or a terrorist threat endangers our people we won’t hesitate in defending our honorable people.”

In the same context, the Hezbollah leader stressed that “We need the spirit of martyr Imad Mughniyeh to develop the project of resistance, and the brothers of Hajj Imad are doing this nowadays.”

Internationalizing Lebanese Affairs

Elsewhere in his remarks, His Eminence slammed any talks about an international resolution under the United Nations Charter VII regarding the formation of the Lebanese government, which he referred to as a call to war towards which we mustn’t remain silent.

“Calling for internationalization to resolve domestic issues is unacceptable regardless of who said so, and it can pave the way for undesirable consequences,” His eminence added.

“Internationalizing the Lebanese issue contradicts the country’s sovereignty and could be a cover to a new occupation. It would open the door wide to settling Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. We reject any form of internationalizing the Lebanese issue, which we find a danger that threatens Lebanon,” Sayyed Nasrallah outlined.

The anti-Hezbollah Chorus

Commenting on the electronic armies and the media outlets that grab any incident to point the blame on Hezbollah, Sayyed Nasrallah described those sides as saying “There is a chorus in Lebanon whose goal is to insult Hezbollah without any pretext. This only represents them, and all of their acts won’t affect us.”

In this respect, the resistance leader called on its audience not to be dragged to this chorus’ behavior as all the blamed accusations contradict all norms, laws and traditions.

“There is a systematic, managed and paid targeting of Hezbollah. This campaign has failed to distort the image of resistance within its people. Some reactions by some of the resistance’s audience as a result of this campaign shouldn’t be considered as an act of the entire audience, although they should be dealt with,” Sayyed Nasrallah made clear.

The Beirut Port Mystery?

In reference to the yet unannounced results of investigations regarding the Beirut Port blast which have already ended, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that he had previously called on the Lebanese Army, the Internal Security, and the Judiciary to announce the result.

“It is the duty of the concerned parties in the Lebanese Judiciary to announce the results of the investigations regarding the Beirut Port blast, and we have been told that the due amounts of insurances for the families of the martyrs and the owners of damaged properties is estimated at $1.2 billion,” His Eminence said while renewing calls for announcing the results of the investigations.

Lebanese Government Formation

“Nobody doesn’t want the formation of a Lebanese government,” the Hezbollah leader emphasized, adding that “It is in everybody’s interest to form a government, and talking about waiting the Iranian nuclear issue is baseless.”

“Waiting foreign powers is futile and pressures may push some sides to adhere to their stances. It is unjust to hold the president responsible for not forming the government.”

Pointing that Hezbollah understands other parties’ demands to hold certain portfolios, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that “We don’t understand insisting on forming an 18-minister government while some sides believe that the aim behind this is to eliminate their participation.”

The Hezbollah-FPM Understanding

On the 15th anniversary of the understanding that was made between Hezbollah and the Free Patriotic Movement, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed to that the resistance movement wanted it to be a base for wider understandings with other powers.

“The understanding has made a group of achievements that served Lebanon, Hezbollah, and the FPM. We don’t agree on some negative remarks that were made by the FPM as they serve as a material for those who are waiting such things.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah affirmed the solid relationship with the FPM and expressed keenness to develop it.

Lebanon As Seen Via Social Media

Sayyed Nasrallah made clear that Tel Aviv, Washington, and their allies announce that they form electronic armies to cause strife and disputes.

“There are sides that want to cause an explosion in Lebanon via what is happening on social media platforms,” Sayyed Nasrallah said before calling for strong presence on social media platforms while adhering to awareness, politeness and not harming anybody.

The post-Trump Region

Pointing to the major developments that took place in the region and the world after Trump’s departure, Sayyed Nasrallah insisted that Lebanon is a key part in the region which is affected by all the developments that take place in it.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has shown endurance and braveness regarding its nuclear issue, and there are clear ‘Israeli’ and Saudi concerns regarding it.”

As for the revival of Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group], Sayyed Nasrallah said that “The Americans’ talking that their mission doesn’t include protecting the oil in Syria anymore came along with reviving Daesh,” making clear that the Americans want to remain in Syria and Iraq.

“They might mobilize Daesh in both countries, and the new US administration is using this pretext to remain there,” His Eminence noted, stressing however that “those who defeated Daesh in the past will defeat it again, and working to defeat the terrorist organization should be crushing so that it won’t be able to be revived.”

The Steadfast Yemen

In reference to the new US administration of Joe Biden, Sayyed Nasrallah said that Washington’s announcement of ending its support for the war on Yemen is a positive step that is a result of the Yemenis’ steadfastness, noting that any call for ending the war on Yemen is positive, and the brothers in Yemen are aware of the situation, which is normal and required.

“The Yemenis steadfastness and tolerance of the siege, the pain, and the bombing pushed the silent world to issue daily reports to defend the aggressive Saudi Arabia, and the Yemeni Army today is in an advanced place, and the other side is screaming in Marib due to the progress the Yemenis are making,” Sayyed Nasrallah explained.

“The honest and steadfast Yemenis will bear the fruits of their steadfastness, and the concerns are growing among Saudi Arabia and the enemy’s entity.”

The Declining ‘Deal of the Century’

Mentioning that the ‘Deal of the Century’ has majorly decreased, Sayyed Nasrallah found it as a clear explanation that it either ended or is declining. “This is a source of concern for the ‘Israelis’ and the Saudis.”

The persistence of the Palestinians and the Axis of Resistance in the face of Trump resulted in the decline of the ‘Deal of the Century’, His Eminence noted, criticizing the Zionists exaggeration regarding the Arab acceptance of normalization: “We’ve seen the stances of the Bahraini people, and before them the Egyptian and Jordanian people against the normalization.”

He then urged boycotting the ‘Israeli’ enemy and rejecting normalization as an important step that represents the religious and national sense of belonging.

“Rulers in Sudan will realize that normalization won’t solve their economic problems, which already happened with countries that normalized ties years earlier,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that some people’s visits to the enemy’s entity or the actions of some electronic armies don’t express the Arab and Muslim popular mood.

It Is the Era of the ‘Axis of Resistance’

In response to hollow remarks made by ‘Israeli’ military chief Aviv Kochavi, Sayyed Nasrallah concluded with a clear and precise message.

His Eminence warned that the game of combat days is a dangerous one for the ‘Israelis’ as nobody can guarantee that such a game won’t lead to an inclusive and major war.

Kochavi claimed that the Zionist military will not hesitate to launch an attack in full force against any civilian neighborhoods, installations or even residences where unmanned missiles, rockets and aircraft are being stored or launched from.

“We will take part in any confrontation imposed on us, and I say it clearly: bombing cities for bombing cities, and bombing settlements for bombing villages.”

Using pretexts of striking military targets inside cities will be responded to by bombing military targets inside the enemy’s cities, the resistance leader insisted.

“In a case a war broke out, the ‘Israelis’ shouldn’t brag about their strength as the enemy’s internal front will face incidents that it didn’t witness since the establishment of this entity in 1948.”

“This is why I tell you to stop playing with fire,” Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized, telling the enemy that it should be aware of its limits.

“The time when the enemy threatens people and they remain silent has gone! There is a resistance from Gaza to Lebanon to the entire regional countries.”

This matter cannot be run the same way they used to in old mentalities, Sayyed Nasrallah said. “It is a different time; it is the era of the Axis of Resistance which is following all developments quietly and precisely.

“Don’t think for a moment that all the ongoing developments would affect the will of the resistance to confront or change the equations,” Sayyed Nasrallah conluded.

السيد نصر الله: ستواجه الجبهة الداخلية الإسرائيلية في الحرب المقبلة ما لم تعرفه منذ قيام “إسرائيل”

المصدر: الميادين نت


الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصر الله يؤكد أن أي كلام عن قرار دولي تحت البند السابع بشأن الحكومة هو دعوة إلى الحرب، ويشدد على أن الجبهة الداخلية الإسرائيلية ستواجه في أي حرب مقبلة ما لم تعرفه منذ قيام “إسرائيل”.

  • كلمة الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصر الله بمناسبة الذكرى السنوية للقادة الشهداء

قال الأمين العام لحزب الله، السيد حسن نصر الله، بمناسبة الذكرى السنوية للقادة الشهداء: “من الصفات المشتركة للقادة الشهداء هي التمحض في المقاومة، وهم تحملوا كل الظروف الصعبة من أجل تطوير مشروع المقاومة”.

وأضاف السيد نصر الله: “نحن بحاجة إلى مواقف الشيخ راغب حرب لمواجهة التطبيع، وروح الشهيد عماد مغنية من أجل تطوير مشروع المقاومة، ونحن نحفظ وصية السيد عباس الموسوي بحفظها وخدمة الناس، والخدمة الأهم للناس هي الحفاظ على وجودهم وأرضهم وكرامتهم وبلدهم”.

وبمناسبة الذكرى العاشرة للثورة البحرينية، قال: “الشعب البحريني يناضل لإعادة بلاده إلى مكانتها الطبيعية بعدما حولها حكامها إلى قاعدة للتطبيع. نحيّي شعب البحرين الذي دفع الكثير من التضحيات للحصول على حريته، وفي مقدمة قادته سماحة آية الله الشيخ عيسى قاسم”.

وحول مرور 42 سنة على انتصار الثورة الإسلامية في إيران، قال إن الأخيرة “صمدت وتطورت على كل الصعد، وباتت قوة إقليمية كبرى يحسب لها ألف حساب”.

نصر الله: تدويل ملف الحكومة اللبنانية قد يكون غطاء لاحتلال جديد

وفي الملف الداخلي اللبناني، أكد السيد نصر الله أن “أي كلام عن قرار دولي تحت البند السابع بشأن الحكومة هو دعوة إلى الحرب، والتدويل يتنافى مع السيادة، وقد يكون غطاء لاحتلال جديد، وقد يفتح الباب على مصراعيه، وقد يفرض توطين الفلسطينيين”.

وأكد رفض أي شكل من أشكال التدويل، مضيفاً: “إننا نراه خطراً على لبنان، ونشعر بأن فرض فكرة التدويل هو لاستقواء بعض اللبنانيين على بعضهم الآخر”.

وعن تشكيل الحكومة اللبنانية، قال السيد نصر الله: “لا أحد لا يريد تأليف حكومة جديدة في لبنان، في وقت من مصلحة الجميع أن تتألف حكومة، والكلام عن انتظار الملف النووي الإيراني ممجوج ولا مكان له. سابقاً، كان الكلام عن انتظار الانتحابات الأميركية وغيرها.. انتظار الخارج لن يؤدي إلى أي نتيجة، والضغوط قد تدفع البعض إلى التمسك بمواقفه”.

واعتبر أن “من غير المنصف تحميل مسؤولية عدم تأليف حكومة لرئيس الجمهورية. نحن نتفهم مطالبات بعض الجهات بحقائب معينة ووجود قلق من حصول حزب واحد على ثلث معطل”.

وتابع: “لا نتفهم الإصرار على حكومة من 18 وزيراً. هناك شرائح تعتقد أن إلغاءها هو الهدف من ذلك”.

وعن التفاهم بين التيار الوطني الحر وحزب الله في 2006، قال السيد نصر الله: “15 عاماً مرت على تفاهم مار مخايل. كنا نريده أساساً لتفاهمات أوسع مع قوى أخرى”، لافتاً إلى أن “التفاهم حقق مجموعة من المصالح للبنان ولحزب الله وللتيار”، وقال: “لا نوافق على خروج بعض الملاحظات السلبية حول التفاهم في بيان للتيار، فهي تعطي مادة للمتربصين”، مؤكداً “متانة العلاقة مع الوطني الحر والحرص على تطويرها”.

نصر الله: هناك استهداف ممنهج ومدفوع الثمن ضد حزب الله

وفي سياق آخر، قال السيد نصر الله إن “هناك جوقة هدفها السباب والشتائم لحزب الله من دون أي حجة، وهذا يعبر عن أصحابها. كل أفعال هذه الجوقة لا تؤثر فينا. أدعو جمهور المقاومة إلى عدم الانجرار لسلوكهم”. 

وتابع: “هناك استهداف ممنهج ومدبر ومدفوع الثمن ضد حزب الله، وما يجري معنا من اتهامات خارج كل الأعراف والتقاليد والشرائع، وما يجري أن هناك من يتعامل مع حزب الله على أنه متهم وقاتل ومسؤول حتى تثبت براءته”. 

كلام السيد نصر الله يأتي في سياق الاتهام الذي وُجّه إليه من قبل أطراف سياسية وإعلامية باغتيال الناشط السياسي لقمان سليم. وقد أكد في هذا السياق أن “إسرائيل تقتل مواطنيها من أجل خدمة مشروعها، والمجازر الصهيونية لم تقتصر على المسلمين والمسيحيين فقط، بل شملت يهوداً رفضوا الهجرة إليها”.

وشدد على أن “هناك استهدافاً ممنهجاً ومدبراً ومدفوع الثمن ضد حزب الله. وقد فشل في تشويه صورة المقاومة لدى بيئتها وجمهورها”، مشيراً إلى أن “انفعال بعض جمهور المقاومة نتيجة الحملة يجب ألا يحسب على كل الجمهور، وإن كان يجب أن يعالج”.

وفي سياق الحديث عن الحملات الممنهجة في مواقع التواصل، شدد السيد نصر الله على أن “تل أبيب وواشنطن وحلفاءهما يعلنون أنهم يشكلون جيوشاً إلكترونية لإثارة الفتن والخلافات، وهناك من يريد أن يأخذ البلد إلى الانفجار من خلال ما يجري في وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي”، داعياً إلى “الحضور القوي في وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي مع الالتزام بالوعي والأدب وعدم الإساءة”.

وفي ملف انفجار مرفأ بيروت، قال السيد نصر الله إن “التحقيق في التفجير انتهى. طالبت سابقاً الجيش والأمن الداخلي والقضاء بإعلان نتيجته، ومن واجب الجهة المعنية الإعلان عن نتائج التحقيق”.

نصر الله: هناك قلق إسرائيلي وسعودي واضح حيال الملف النووي واليمن

إقليمياً، قال أمين عام حزب الله إن “تطورات كبيرة تحصل في المنطقة والعالم بعد رحيل الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب غير مأسوف عليه، ووصول إدارة أميركية جديدة، ولبنان جزء أساسي في المنطقة، وهو يتأثر بكل ما يجري فيها”.

وأضاف أن هناك “قلقاً إسرائيلياً وسعودياً واضحاً حيال الملف النووي الإيراني”.

وعن إعلان واشنطن وقف دعمها للحرب على اليمن، اعتبر السيد نصر الله أنها “خطوة إيجابية. وقد جاءت نتيجة صمود اليمنيين. الجيش اليمني واللجان الشعبية في موقع متقدم في كل الجبهات. أيضاً، نجد أن القلِق هو السعودي والإسرائيلي”.

وعن الملف السوري، قال: “حديث الأميركيين عن أن مهمتهم لم تعد تشمل حماية النفط في سوريا ترافق مع إعادة إحياء داعش”، مؤكداً أن “من هزم داعش سابقاً سيلحق الهزيمة به مجدداً، وأي عمل بمواجهته يجب أن يكون هجومياً لا دفاعياً”.

وحيال “صفقة القرن”، قال السيد نصر الله: “لا أحد يتحدث اليوم عن الصفقة التي يبدو أنها انتهت أو باتت في حالة تراجع وتلفظ أنفاسها، نتيجة صمود الشعب الفلسطيني والقيادات الفلسطينية ومحور المقاومة”.

وحول تطبيع الدول العربية مع الاحتلال الإسرائيلي، أكد أن “موقف الشعبين المصري والأردني نموذج واضح لرفض التطبيع، وهو ينسحب إلى باقي الشعوب. ثمة دول عربية وإسلامية، كالجزائر وتونس وباكستان وغيرها، ما زالت صامدة ومتمسكة برفضها للتطبيع”.

وأكد أن “أصحاب الأوهام، كحكام السودان، سيكتشفون أن التطبيع مع إسرائيل لن يحل مشاكلهم الاقتصادية”، لافتاً إلى أن “الإسرائيليين يعطون موضوع التطبيع أكثر من حجمه، والجيوش الإلكترونية لا تعبر عن مزاج الأمة والشعوب”. 

ولفت السيد نصر الله إلى أن “إسرائيل لم تلتزم يوماً بالقانون الدولي، ودمرت مدناً، وقتلت المدنيين في كل حروبها”، وأضاف: “أقول لرئيس الأركان الإسرائيلي إننا لا نبحث عن مواجهة وعن حرب، ولكن إن فرضتم حرباً فسنخوضها. وإذا ضربتم مدننا، فسنرد بالمثل. وإذا استهدفتم قرانا، فسنقصف مستعمراتكم. وفي أي حرب مقبلة، ستواجه الجبهة الداخلية الإسرائيلية ما لم تعرفه منذ قيام إسرائيل”، مشيراً إلى أن “لا أحد يضمن ألا تتدحرج “الأيام القتالية” إلى حرب واسعة”.

أنت كتبتَهُ بدمك…

مرة كتبته بمسيرة عماد لبنان ومرة كتبته بمسيرة مهندس العراق ومرة كتبته بمسيرة صماد اليمن وفي كلّ مرة كتبته بمسيرة رموز العزة في غزة وبوابات الشام وعند سفوح وهضاب أفغانستان الفاطميّة وشبه القارة الهنديّة الزينبيّة، وبوصلتهم جميعاً إلى القدس من دون مواربة ولا التواء أو درجة انحراف..!

دمك كان يتدفق في أجسام متفاوتة روحها واحدة..!

اليوم وأنت ترقد في كرمان قرير العين صار بإمكانك أن ترى وتشاهد بعين اليقين من رافقوك من القادة كما من ربّيتهم من الكوادر على امتداد البصر أقرب وأشبه ما يكونون بجيش العشرين مليون لتحرير بيت المقدس، كما كان يتمنّى ويخطط إمامك وإمامهم الخميني العظيم..

Soleimani The Leader and The Role Model

Soleimani The Leader and The Role Model

In the name of Allah the Merciful the Most Gracious

Images of his face were circulated all over the world, his name filled the horizons of the globe, and his star cast a shade over the Mujahideen. He was dedicated to obeying the guardian, the Imam and the Leader Khamenei. He journeyed the squares as a Mujahid, carrying his blood in his hand. Every moment of his life was counted as Jihad, for everything in it and everything he owned was for the sake of Allah. He was Lieutenant General Hajj Qassem Soleimani (may God Almighty be pleased with him), the martyr of the Ummah and Palestine and the leader of the martyrs of the axis of resistance.

All that is in him and what he has is for God and for the sake of God. He is Lieutenant General Hajj Qassem Soleimani (may God Almighty be pleased with him), the martyr of the Ummah and Palestine, and the leader of the martyrs of the axis of resistance.

Martyr Soleimani: A leader and role model

He was the expert leader in the fields of jihad and battle. He mastered his plans, succeeded in his operations against the enemies, he was well-versed in politics, understood international, regional, and local equations, and approached matters using his clear and insightful vision. He was loyal and devoted to the love of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his pure family (PBUT). He knew exactly the limits of Sharia law and the history of Muslims. He realized what was most important for the path of Islam and Muslims. It was he who set his sights on the liberation of Al-Quds and Palestine, heeding the call of Imam Khomeini, the Imam of the Ummah, the revolution, and the path – “‘Israel’ is a cancerous gland that must be eradicated from existence.” He was aware of the path of salvation by following the orders and approach of the nation’s leadership represented by the wali al-faqih Imam Khamenei. He was the leader who knew the features of the road with inclusiveness, awareness, and jihad. He is the leader of the martyrs of the axis of resistance.

He was the role model who lived with the Mujahideen in the heart of the battles and guided them through what he was doing. He was the security link between them and the leadership.

In 2013, the New Yorker wrote: “Soleimani indeed believes in Islam, and he is more polite compared to others. Perhaps the naming of Lieutenant General Soleimani as Haji or Hajj Qassem instead of his military titles in Iraq, Syria, and the Gulf states in general, is an indication of the predominance of his religious character in his behavior and dealings.”

Martyr Soleimani was distinguished by the charisma of the popular leadership, and he was the one who led the mujahideen in prayer before setting off to battle. He received blessings from the martyrs and delivered enthusiastic words full of faith and divine adoration before and after the military operations. [These words] were mixed with weeping and supplication, asking for forgiveness from the martyrs because he did not die like them. Before each attack, he embraced all of his fighters, one by one, tearfully bidding them farewell.

His life was modest, and he rarely met with his family because he spent most of his time on the battlefields of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Afghanistan. From there, he looked over Palestine and Yemen and visited other countries for political and practical purposes.

With Hezbollah

Since martyr Soleimani assumed the leadership of the Quds Force in 1998, we in Hezbollah noticed an exceptional interest in our movement, in terms of equipment, armaments, training, and overall capabilities. He was part of setting up the main plans that developed the party’s work. He was part of the liberation in 2000, and was in the operation room crafting plans to repel the “Israeli” aggression in July 2006. He was the field commander who enabled the collapse of ISIS, from Iraq to Syria and until their project was uprooted in Lebanon that resulted in the second liberation – this time against the Takfiris in 2017 in the Battle of Jaroud.

The martyr would meet with the leaders of the Hezbollah Mujahideen from time to time and inform them of his view regarding developments and battlefield plans to confront “Israel” and the enemies. We were eager to hear his analyses, vision, and information and the data he possessed at the regional level.

During presentations, he was a lover of the party. He had a special relationship with His Eminence the Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah (may God preserve him). They had many meetings, and absolute trust in one another. The martyr also had a special relationship with the great jihadist leader Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (may God be pleased with him) with respect to minute details that translated into successful confrontations and achieving victories. The same goes for his relationship with jihadist leader Sayyed Mustafa Badr al-Din (may God be pleased with him) when he assumed his duties, especially in Syria.

Martyr Soleimani was a direct field commander in Hezbollah, and he was never far away, neither geographically, nor in terms of politics. Rather, he was at the center of Hezbollah’s march, successes, jihad, developments, and prestige.

America is defeated

Had martyr Soleimani not caused the most pain to America and its aggressive, arrogant project in this world, Trump would not have decided to assassinate him in such a clear and deliberate manner. And if he had not achieved successes and many victories for the resistance axis, he would not have held such a special place in the hearts of the people.

The modern-day world has never before seen the million-man funeral procession in Iran and several other countries that they saw with Imam Khomeini and after him martyr Soleimani. The masses that gathered spontaneously and passionately in squares only validate the role, status, and importance of this commander in the eyes of the Ummah – {Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer].}

He faced America and “Israel” in his life and achieved victories in Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, Yemen and Afghanistan, and in all the known and unknown battlefields where he operated. He also confronted the US in his martyrdom: the response at the Ain al-Assad base, the decision of the Iraqi parliament to expel the American forces that was achieved through his martyrdom and the that of dear and beloved brother Hajj Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in addition to the decision to expel America from the entire region and the rallying of the supporters of the resistance axis, especially in beloved Palestine, around the cause of liberation and determination to prioritize Al-Quds And Palestine.

We lost him in our lives, but he won the martyrdom that he wished for. {And those who have believed in Allah and His messengers – those are [in the ranks of] the supporters of truth and the martyrs, with their Lord. For them is their reward and their light.}

We benefited from the achievements of his work and what he planted during his jihad career. America has accumulated many defeats in our region despite the aggression it sponsored through “Israel” against Palestine and Lebanon, through Saudi Arabia and the Emirates against Yemen, through the Takfiris and Daesh against Iraq and Syria, directly attacking Afghanistan and Iraq, and through sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran and the axis of resistance. America today did not achieve its goals, and its stepdaughter, “Israel”, did not attain the assertion of its borders.

Even though the results of the U.S. elections do not concern us, we consider the fall of the tyrant, Trump, a lesson for the oppressors. As for Biden’s presidency, he follows his policies. Let him know that we adhere to our land and independence, and we will carry on as a resistance movement regardless of the sacrifices. Those who stood firm and defeated “Israel”, faced sanctions, and did not change their positions under the most difficult circumstances will never squander their achievements and the blood of the martyrs. Hezbollah will be strong and ready in terms of its jihadist position, preparing all its deterrence capabilities in defense against “Israel” and the annexes of its occupation.

The presence of the axis of resistance, its steadfastness, and the balance of deterrence that it created are strong. Through a quick and comprehensive reading of what the axis of resistance is, and despite the aggression, pressures, and threats, we will find that it owes a lot of its strength that enables more victories to the leader of the Quds Force, martyr Soleimani. The people and Mujahideen of this region are determined to continue the march of martyr Soleimani and confront America and “Israel” to achieve liberation and independence from subordination. {And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose.}

«تيكون عولام» تكشف قائد وحدة «شلداغ» الصهيونيّة

يجب أن يخضع الجيش «الإسرائيليّ» للمحكمة الجنائيّة الدوليّة لارتكابه جرائم حرب

كشفت مدوّنة «تيكون عولام» اسم قائد وحدة «شلداغ»، وهي «وحدة كوماندو النخبة في سلاح الجو». ويدعى قائد الوحدة أيوب كيوف.

وأضافت المدوّنة أن «قائد وحدة شلداغ أيوب كيوف «عربي درزي» من بلدة عسفية»، مشيرة إلى أن «الكشف عن اسم قائد وحدة شلداغ هو ثاني انتهاك للرقابة العسكرية في الجيش الصهيوني».

وقالت «تيكون عولام»، إنها «المرة الأولى التي يتم فيها تعيين ضابط «درزي» في منصب قائد وحدة شلداغ»، لافتةً إلى أن «التكتم على هويات كبار ضباط الجيش يهدف إلى حمايتهم من مهاجمتهم أثناء الخدمة العسكرية وبعدها.. كما أنه يهدف أيضاً إلى حمايتهم من المحاكمة من قبل المحكمة الجنائية الدولية».

وتحدثت «تيكون عولام» عن أن «يكون الجيش الصهيوني ارتكب جرائم حرب، ويجب أن يخضع للمحكمة الجنائية الدولية»، مؤكدة أن «ارتكاب الجيش الصهيوني جرائم حرب هو أحد الأسباب التي تجعلها تفضح أفراده».

كما أشارت المدونة إلى أن «من ممارسات الجيش العنصرية أنه ترك وراءه خلال عملية في غزة أخيراً المقدم محمود خير الدين لأنه درزي».

وأضافت: «بينما كان خير الدين على قيد الحياة، تقدّم بطلب دون جدوى للحصول على تصريح لبناء منزل لعائلته»، مشدّدة على أن «نظام الفصل العنصري في «إسرائيل» يرفض بشكل روتيني طلبات لغير اليهود».

أيوب كيوف سبق أن ورد اسمه في «موقع آي 24 الصهيوني في 20 تشرين الأول/أكتوبر 2019، حين نشر الموقع تقريراً حول مواجهات بين قوات الاحتلال الصهيوني ومستوطنين في مستوطنة «يتسهار» قرب نابلس، أسفرت عن جرح جندي، وقال إن «الجيش أجرى تدريباً في المنطقة، وكان يفترض أن يمر قائد كتيبة المشاة في لواء النخبة «غولاني»، أيوب كيوف، بسيارته عبر المستوطنة، إلا أن سيارتين للمستوطنين اعترضتا طريقه، وتجمّع حوله العديد منهم، وبدأوا بشتمه واعتدوا عليه».

و»تيكون عولام»، وتعني «إصلاح العالم»، هي مدونة سياسية يقع مقرها في سياتل في الولايات المتحدة، وعادةً ما تكتب عن قضايا أمنية صهيونية. وقد أنشأها في العام 2003 ريتشارد سيلفرستاين، وهي تغطي كل ما يتعلق بـ»الأمن القومي الصهيوني».

وكان الموقع كشف، أول أمس، عن اسم قاتل القائد العسكري في المقاومة الشهيد عماد مغنية الذي اغتيل في العام 2008.

Their Horror is A Reflection of Our Safety

Their Horror is A Reflection of Our Safety

By Laila Amasha

The balconies of the houses in South Lebanon were crowded until Tuesday’s night. The night was disturbed by the sound of “Israeli” artillery coupled with the voices of locals on the roads overlooking the borders of occupied Palestine.

The people of the resistance joked about the horrified “Israelis”. The jokes advanced the portrayal of the enemy’s humiliation and terror. And then, eyes slept filled with pride and hearts were able to witness an overflow of tranquility between each beat. The scene seemed magical, especially when looking at the state the Zionists were in – the settlers were forced to stay in their homes, in safe rooms close to shelters, while their defeated soldiers were flopping in a funny, hysterical act of terror, throwing all their flares accompanied by screams of panic.

Without delving into the course of events that transpired on Tuesday night, we pause at the people’s reaction to what happened. It takes us back to the days of the occupation. A comparison forces itself on us. The deeper meaning of the phrase “the time of victory is here” is translated on the ground.

During those days, the enemy’s army and its tools, the Lahad Army, mastered the art of spreading terror and anxiety among the steadfast residents of the border villages and towns on a daily basis. The setting of the sun was a sign for people to go home and not go out at night except when absolutely necessary.

At some point, lights in houses were turned off early so as not to arouse the curiosity of a patrol of Lahad militias or Zionists. The voices of people during evening gatherings were so low they were not heard in nearby homes. The oppression and the feeling of insecurity were like daily bread and a lifestyle that people were forced to adopt to. It was enough for the Zionist to throw a single flare bomb in order to plant anxiety in the hearts of the people. The scene was full of sadness. Even the moments of joy after operations by the resistance against the occupation positions and its agents were shrouded in silence in order not to provoke the anger of the occupier and the resentment of the traitors.

Quickly, the heart moves from this scene and the one we saw on Tuesday. There was joy accompanied by security and the eagerness of people to watch the Zionists’ panic attacks, especially with the news that the Zionists hid in their homes. Through their fear of moving around and their horror, people saw the fragility of the spider’s web and its inability to have a single moment of safety.

A common denominator in these two scenes is an army of passionate resistance fighters who created freedom through the qualitative accumulation of resistance and organized military action and are certain of the inevitable victory.

This sacred crowd of the men of the sun, the martyrs and those awaiting martyrdom, was there on Tuesday night in the sky of the south and in the hearts. All the pure hearts were praising God for their chance to be living in a time when the eye broke the spear and horrified it. Others were thanking every resistance fighter.

The people of Jabal Amel [Mountain] and the supporters of the resistance stayed up all night adorned with their pure instinct. This instinct shows only dignity and honor. The resistance excelled in fortifying this instinct in a way that prevents it from falling into the swamps of “neutrality.”

What happened last night was clear evidence of the resistance’s role in enhancing the security of the people; they are no longer frightened by the army that considers itself and is regarded by those who are delusional and traitors as one of the strongest and most equipped armies on earth.

It also forms an evidence that people support those that got them dignity and freedom, liberated their land from the abomination of occupation, and freed their souls from the chains of anxiety.

Here, the square embroidered with the emeralds of resistance becomes a small part of the change that it has made. The most prominent field was carrying people’s souls from the darkness of fear to the dawn of victories, from the daily tension over what the enemy has committed or might commit to comfortably watching what the terrified enemy is doing.

In short, the resistance that liberated the land, preserved homes, and protected livelihoods, fortified the instinct of people and crowned their souls with an abundance of glory and freedom. Is there free action that resembles this – possessing this strength and love?

On Tuesday night, we witnessed a panic attack during which the Zionists floundered. We exchanged developments with overwhelming joy while repeating the phrase of the resistance’s secretary general: “The ‘Israelis’ are standing on a leg and a half!”

With our eyes, armed with certainty and safety, we saw Mughniyeh’s specter that came with an army of men of God repeating with one roaring voice: The time of defeat is over.

Hajj Qassem Soleimani Repeatedly Risked His Life to Protect Sayyed Nasrallah; Precision Missiles Some of His Touches

Hajj Qassem Soleimani Repeatedly Risked His Life to Protect Sayyed Nasrallah; Precision Missiles Some of His Touches

By Staff, Agencies

This is the first time that the July 2006 war is being commemorated in the absence of the martyred commander who knew its every detail and lived through its perils. He was there alongside Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and Sayyed as well as the leaders overseeing the course of the war. But today, the commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, Hajj Qassem Soleimani, is strongly present in spirit.

Member of Hezbollah Central Council His Eminence Sheikh Nabil Qaouk recalls the role Hajj Qassem played during the war. In an exclusive with Al-Ahed News, he makes some interesting revelations.

“The precision missiles that established new equations in the conflict with the enemy, exposed the entity’s depth for the first time since 1948, and encircled this usurper entity is a strategic achievement recorded by Hajj Qassem Soleimani,” he said.

According to Sheikh Qaouk, “Hajj Qassem Soleimani insisted on staying in the heart of the battle, along with Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, Sayyed, and the rest of the brothers. He was one of the leaders on the battlefield. Hajj Qassem Soleimani put his life on the line. He was ready to be martyred at any moment. He employed the entirety of his jihadist experience in the service of the resistance, and he harnessed all his capabilities to defend Lebanon and defeat the enemy.”

Sheikh Qaouk also touched upon the spiritual relationship between the Secretary General of Hezbollah and the commander of the Quds Force.

“Hajj Qassem Soleimani was concerned with preserving the safety of the Secretary General, His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and for that he faced death several times.”

While talking about Commander Soleimani and the Divine Victory in July 2006, the capabilities of the resistance automatically come to mind.

“Today [the resistance is] at the peak of its strength, ability, and readiness, and the enemy can never underestimate or ignore the resistance’s strength, and its surprises,” Sheikh Qaouk warned.

He promises that “there are surprises that will take place on the battlefield that are not included in the enemy’s calculations, and, God willing, the greatest victory will be ours.”

“The period after 2006 is not the same as the period before it.” This is according to the resistance, and the most important lessons revolved around the realization that “[we needed] to be strong in a world ravaged by wolves and ruled by monsters.”

“We realized that we should not abandon our weapons and surrendering them is a betrayal of the homeland and the nation, and that we must protect these weapons with our bare hands. We realized that permanent readiness to confront the enemy must be achieved.”

On the anniversary of the 2006 war, Sheikh Qaouk congratulated the wounded, whose scars bear witness to their heroism and the barbarism of the enemy. He congratulated the resistance fighters, who are the Men of God who continue to protect this nation – away from the limelight – and pose as the homeland’s dignity and pride. He also commended our loyal and faithful people – the most honorable and purest people on their steadfastness and their glorious victory. Moreover, he asked God to have mercy on the souls of the martyrs, who achieved this great victory.

Below is the full text of the interview:

* For the first time, you mark the anniversary of the July 2006 aggression in the absence of Hajj Qassem Soleimani. What do you remember about his role alongside Hajj Imad Mughniyeh in that war? Did you meet him during the 33 days of war?

The name of Hajj Qassem is resounding. It exudes dignity and pride. The name has an impact on friend and foe. To the enemy, his name is frightening – a nightmare for which every account is calculated. To the friend, it is a symbol of confrontation, will, challenge, and resistance.

When Hajj Qassem is mentioned, victories throughout the region and the world are remembered. I recall beautiful memories, most of which were on the battlefields, in confrontations, and on the front lines.

In fact, Hajj Qassem’s personality is ever-present in us because it is a unique model that possessed all the characteristics of a distinguished Islamic leader.

Hajj Qassem is party to all major accomplishments. He strengthened and developed the capabilities of the resistance. He led it to victories that changed the face of the region.

The precision missiles that established new equations in the conflict with the enemy, exposed the entity’s depth for the first time since 1948, and encircled this usurper entity is a strategic achievement recorded by Hajj Qassem Soleimani.

* When martyr Soleimani’s name is mentioned, what is the first thing that you remember?

As a reminder, Hajj Qassem refused to leave Lebanon during the July 2006 aggression, despite the brothers’ insistence that he leave for his own safety.

Hajj Qassem Soleimani insisted on staying in the heart of the battle, along with Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, Sayyed, and the rest of the brothers. He was one of the leaders on the battlefield. Hajj Qassem Soleimani put his life on the line. He was ready to be martyred at any moment. He employed the entirety of his jihadist experience in the service of the resistance, and he harnessed all his capabilities to defend Lebanon and defeat the enemy.

He was a partner in the 2006 victory, just as he was a partner in the 2000 victory. One of his main concerns during the aggression was preserving the safety of the Secretary General, His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and for that he faced death several times.

* 14 years after the July 2006 aggression, the resistance misses senior leaders such as Hajj Qassem, Hajj Imad, and Sayyed Zulfiqar. Did this loss cause a decline in the military capabilities that might be reflected in the readiness of the resistance in any future war?

The martyrdom of senior leaders along this jihadist path has always strengthened the resistance’s momentum, made it tougher, strengthened its resolve, and sharpened its will.

In the beginning, many leaders were martyred, including the sheikh of the martyrs, Sheikh Ragheb Harb, and the master of the martyrs of the resistance, Sayyed Abbas Al-Musawi and others. But the resistance march was not broken or weakened. It did not lose. Rather it grew and expanded. It deepened and became a choice and took root in the people’s consciousness, awareness, and conscience.

Today, years after the martyrdom of Hajj Radwan and Sayyed Zulfikar, we ask: Was the resistance in 2008 stronger, greater, and more capable or is it so today after their martyrdom? It is evident that today it is stronger, more powerful, and more capable!

What can we conclude from that? We conclude that the march, which is linked to God, is capable, with divine intervention, of overcoming all the difficulties and all its wounds. And with the martyrdom of its leaders, it does not retreat, but rather progresses and becomes more capable than before.

The same thing is true of the martyrdom of Hajj Qassem. We are not worried about the path of Hajj Qassem despite his absence because the source is present. The authentic Mohammedan Islam that made Hajj Qassem, Hajj Imad, Sayyed Zulfiqar, and their brothers is capable of making many Qassem Soleimanis, Imad Mughniyahs, and Mustafa Badreddines.

On this basis, the martyrdom of the leaders did not constitute any regression in terms of the capabilities, readiness, and spirit of the resistance. That spirit, which the enemy admitted that it had defeated in July, is still present and is today more driven.

The resistance today is at the peak of its strength, ability, and readiness, and the enemy can never underestimate or ignore the resistance’s strength, ability, and surprises.”

*During the aggression, you were in the south. What do you remember most about that war?

There is no doubt that wars burry themselves deep in the human conscience. There are two images that remain deep inside everyone who witnessed the war. The first is the image of blood spilled unjustly and the massacres. No one can forget the blood of his family and people. The image of the destruction the enemy caused is unforgettable, even if – thank God – our homes are better than they were.

The other is the image of the amazing resilience of our people. The victory trumpeted by dignity. It is the first victory of the nation in a direct confrontation with the enemy. The July victory officially documented to history and to the whole world that “Israel” was defeated, and that it was weaker than a spider’s web.

What does it mean when the resistance that has limited capabilities triumphs in the face of a global war waged by the fiercest usurping country in the region?

What does it mean when the enemy’s army that defeated the Arab armies within days was crushed near Aita al-Sha`b and Maroun al-Ras? What does it mean when it couldn’t reach Bint Jbeil, which is hundreds of meters away from its entity?

It is the historic divine victory that we should be proud of forever, and we thank God Almighty day and night for the great victory.

* After the July 2006 aggression, the Islamic resistance faced more than one internal and external challenge. It fought battles and lost martyrs on more than one front. How did the resistance benefit from these experiences to raise the level of its readiness? What do you promise the enemy in any future war?

Certainly, the experiences, capabilities, and techniques of the resistance after its defensive battles against the takfiri terrorists, whether in Lebanon or Syria, cannot be compared to what it had before these confrontations.

We must not forget that the capabilities and methods of the terrorists are a summary of the capabilities, ideas, and methods of major international intelligence services that were harnessed in these confrontations to support the terrorists.

In its battles, the resistance reaped the outcome of all these capabilities, methods, and experiences, and this in itself is a tremendous achievement. Therefore, we constantly hear and sense the “Israeli” concern about the tremendous quality and quantity of achievements gained by the resistance in those confrontations.

It is possible today to confirm with full confidence that all this is strongly present in the readiness of the resistance. The resistance employs all these experiences to amplify its high degree of readiness, which is the largest and only obstacle to the enemy and its ambitions. And because the enemies of Lebanon and the resistance cannot overcome the resistance and its equation, they have resorted today to other methods of confrontation. Hence, the economic aggression. As the truthful promise was achieved by the military resistance, the truthful promise will also be achieved by the economic resistance.

* How will the next war look like? Will it be between Lebanon and the Zionist entity, or do you see it as greater?

It is true that brutality and aggression are the enemy’s inherent features since its inception, but we cannot approach reality on the basis of this trait alone. Therefore, we do not see that an “Israeli” war on Lebanon is an absolutely imperative issue.

The period after 2006 is not the same as the period before it!

14 years ago, the resistance achieved victories, and its capabilities accumulated in full view of the enemy, but it could not do anything.

The cost of the aggression that prevented the enemy from waging a war during the past stage is higher and more severe today. If the enemy before was unable to bear the costs of the war, today it is even more incapable of doing so.

Talk by the enemy’s leaders about waging a war in recent years is an attempt to restore cohesion, to reestablish some of the prestige they lost, and to dispel the inability that is eating them. The enemy knows best that any mistake it makes will be a great and destructive sin. The calculations of any confrontation – if it happens – will be unusual and unpredictable, not at the level of its image, its geography, nor at the level of the elements of this confrontation.

Today, the “Israeli” enemy trembles from the equation of the destructive missiles that will fall on the entire usurper entity. It also trembles from the Galilee equation – an equation it has never witnessed since its inception. This is in addition to the great surprises that will trample the enemy and its position.

The strategy of the resistance has proven to be a powerful dam against the enemy’s ambitions and goals, and it is the strong shield that protects and maintains its existence.

* What about the divine intervention in July 2006?

The divine intervention was present in every detail of the July war as well as previous operations – from Operation Truthful Promise to the first moments of the aggression until the moment of victory.

There was divine kindness and intervention in the timing of the aggression. The enemy was forced to launch its aggression at the wrong time in which it did not complete its preparations, while the resistance was on high alert. Thus, the enemy lost the most important element of the war, the element of surprise.

The missile hit the Sa’ar ship at sea when the enemy turned off its radar and its protective equipment. Who told the captain to turn off the devices at that moment?

The enemy’s helicopter crashed in Yater at the time when the enemy was preparing to expand and change the pattern of the aggression. That crash caused frustration.

The Katyusha rockets rained down on paratroopers who were gathered at the

Kfar Giladi colony, killing and wounding dozens of officers and Zionist soldiers.

The feeling of tranquility among the resistance fighters along the front lines was divine. God Almighty planted love for the resistance and its secretary general in the hearts of the people in the most difficult, darkest, and bloodiest days.

The loyal people who sacrificed everything remained steadfast. They saw their life’s work burned and destroyed. However, the only word you hear from them is loyalty. This steadfastness and loyalty were divine intervention and kindness.

The entire course of the war was a intervention to the extent that even Shimon Peres had to declare that “God was with Hezbollah during the war.”

* What are the conclusions of the July 2006 war?

The main lessons of this war lie in the demise of the era of “Israeli” triumphs. The July victory is still continuing, and the enemy is still writhing at defeat.

During the war, we realized that we needed to be strong in a world ravaged by wolves and ruled by monsters.

We realized that we should not abandon our weapons and surrendering them is a betrayal of the homeland and the nation, and that we must protect these weapons with our bare hands. We realized that permanent readiness to confront the enemy must be achieved.

The essence of this war is that the enemy used everything and exhausted everything until it was threatened with a resounding fall. Meanwhile, the resistance proved that it is able to change the path of the region and turn dreams into reality by relying on God.

The Humiliation of ’Israel’ in the Eyes of Imad Mughniyeh

The Humiliation of ’Israel’ in the Eyes of Imad Mughniyeh

By Latifa Al-Husseiny

Beirut – You never run out of stories about the time of liberation. It is like a spring of fresh water on a high mountain pouring on the ground. Twenty full years of Imad Mughniyeh and his comrades in jihad. There was planning, implementation, and then achieving an Arab victory that was only difficult in the dictionary of the weak.

It is May 18, 2000. The beginning of the “Israeli” withdrawal from southern Lebanon begins to unfold. The resistance and its mujahideen are prepared and aware of what is going on. Its military leadership and its cadres are meeting in a village.

The goal is to continuously assess the situation to develop hypothetical scenarios in the event of any major retreat by the enemy. Hajj Imad is heading the meeting. He, along with his cohorts of resistance officers, are providing estimates while examining hypotheticals and sny potential plans the Zionists might adopt. Before those in attendance, he repeats one chorus: the “Israeli” enemy must leave humiliated and under fire.

For this purpose, numerous meetings with the command of military operations and mobilization forces were held. Various sources of fire including the artillery and launchers were stationed in the south. Reconnaissance of the enemy’s movements and soldiers was carried out a week before the liberation of the south, especially in light of the evacuations that were taking place along some of the posts. All this was overseen by Hajj Imad personally.

The enemy’s retreat rolled on. Qantara, Al-Qoussair, Deir Siriane, and Tayibe were liberated from the occupation under the strikes of the Mujahideen, while the locals headed to the occupied gate and removed it.

The resistance leadership drew up alternative plans on how to pounce the Lahad army at the time. It also deployed military police to the southern border villages to prevent any disturbances during the “Israeli” escape.

Indeed, some Lahad forces surrendered in Adaisseh, while others fled under fire from the resistance. Bint Jbeil and the towns in that district were liberated. The liberation rumbled from Tayibe to Hula to Beit Yahoun until the miniature security belt drawn up by the then “Israeli” War Minister Ehud Barak to protect the northern settlements collapsed.

A leader in the Islamic Resistance tells al-Ahed about those days.

“We stayed in the south, watching closely how the “Israelis” fled. Hajj Imad managed the military missions and distributed tasks. When the operations began, he was at the helm of those checking the situation. He went to the Palestinian border without escort.”

On May 23 and May 24, “Israeli” soldiers continued their withdrawal. From Ainatha to Kfar Tibnit to the Khiam detention center, the Zionists withdrew defeated. Hajj Imad was waiting, while the resistance men spread around and targeted them.

On the final day of throwing out the occupiers, the battle ended at the Fatima Gate at the border. Through it, the last “Israeli” soldier fled. That moment was historic.

While Benny Gantz, the commander of the so-called Lebanon Liaison Unit in the “Israeli” army, closed the gate and put the key under one of the rocks, Hajj Imad was a few meters away looking at how the “Israelis” were humiliated.

He stood in front of the Fatima Gate, while the resistance apparatus deployed and secured all the villages. Inhaling the breath of freedom and the fragrance of Palestine, he did not care about the people who had been trailing him for years. Those people were fleeing broken, looking for a refuge to hide their failures and surrender. On the other hand, Hajj Imad was defying everything to take a look at the Galilee and beyond. He had accomplished the first step of the inevitable liberation.

Six years after the 2000 liberation of the south, the July War came. Hajj Imad led 33 days of confrontations with the enemy. He thwarted the Zionists’ promise. It was another divine victory on the road to Palestine. Angered by the defeat, “Israel” decided to take revenge. For this purpose, it utilized its tools and agents. The meeting was in Syria.

Away from the commotion of the world, a group of leaders of the resistance axis gathered in one of the party’s centers in the Kafr Souseh area in Damascus.

On the evening of February 12, 2008, a group of leaders of the Revolutionary Guards headed by the commander of the Quds Force, Hajj Qassem Soleimani, met leaders of the Islamic Resistance, headed by Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.

It was a military summit that lasted for about an hour. One of the leaders who attended the meeting explained that the main reason for the meeting was to conduct an evaluation of the general situation at the level of the resistance factions. However, the special relationship between Hajj Imad and Hajj Qassem set the tone of the meeting.

There was laughter and smiles as if they felt that this would be a farewell. Hajj Qassem told our interlocutor, “What Hajj Imad says, I implement. I am a soldier of Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.” When the latter heard that sentence, he quickly said, “No, we are brothers.”

The evaluation session was over, and it was time to depart. Hajj Qassem Soleimani stood at the elevator and embraced Hajj Imad with great affection. That moment was engraved in the memory of the people present. It was proof that the relationship between the two men surpassed the cause. It was a relationship of spirit and sacrifice similar to the relationship between al-Hussayn and al-Abbas (PBUT). They shared redemption, responsibility, and a high jihadist spirit.

Five minutes later, Hajj Imad left to carry out an important mission. When he got to his car, he was martyred.

Hajj Qassem never knew Hajj Imad’s destination. He heard a loud explosion and was informed of the news. He went back to find his companion dead.

What was the nature of the meeting they agreed on minutes earlier? It was a painful separation. However, 12 years later that conclusion was repeated with Hajj Qassem’s spirit rising to the supreme kingdom. Both men’s blood was spilt on the road to Palestine for the sake of Al-Quds.

Deputy Head of Hezbollah Executive Council Tells Al-Ahed the Untold Stories of Lebanon Liberation on 20th Anniversary

Deputy Head of Hezbollah Executive Council Tells Al-Ahed the Untold Stories of Lebanon Liberation on 20th Anniversary

By Al-Ahed News Website

The resistance from Taklif until the glory of May

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the glory of May – the Resistance and Liberation Day, Al-Ahd journeys back to the early days of the resistance and how Imam Khomeini (may God sanctify his secret) was the first to embrace it.

The deputy head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council Hajj Abdallah Kassir, a key witness from that period, recalls some of his expreeinces.

In 1982, Hajj Abdallah Kassir was with a group of al-Shabab al-Mu’min [Believing Youth]on a visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran to attend the Shaaban 15 Conference – The Day of the Vulnerable. The visit coincided with the “Israeli” invasion of Lebanon.

“At the time, the Imam sent a delegate to us after failing to secure an urgent appointment since we had decided to return to Lebanon after the invasion,” Hajj Kassir said.

He then quotes what the delegate conveyed to them from Imam Khomeini, “Your taklif [religious obligation] is to fight ‘Israel’, and ‘Israel’ fell into the trap as a mouse falls into a trap. You will definitely be victorious, and you must fight it with the capabilities available to you.”

According to Kassir, it was a religious position. “Therefore, everything that was built after our return – we returned to Beirut the day after the battle of Khaldeh – was built by the al-Shabab al-Mu’min based on this fatwa and Imam’s directions regarding the issue of fighting ‘Israel’.”

This impulse and sincerity – and thanks to the blood of the martyrs as well as the blessing of the leadership of Imam Khomeini and Imam Khamenei after him – led to the glory of May and the victories during that month.

Those victories were distinctive historical events in the Arab-“Israeli” conflict because the “Israelis” were forced to withdraw unconditionally for the first time. The May victory was called the clean victory since the enemy withdrew under fire from the resistance without any pledges or agreements.

The glory of May in Taybeh: One of God’s days

The second part of our overview of the history of the resistance with the deputy head Hezbollah’s Executive Council Hajj Abdallah Kassir, focuses on the liberation of Lebanon’s southern town of Taybeh. Hajj Kassir participated in that liberation and left his mark.

In May 2000, Kassir was a deputy for the south. He received a call from the resistance leadership telling him to head to the south.

“I arrived in Taybeh. In the town square, there was a popular celebration. Young men from the resistance asked us to wait until they cleaned the area. We went up with the men and women to Kamel Al-Assad’s old house, which was a headquarters for the Lahad forces. That house was overlooking the entire area. There we met a lot of our brothers that we knew, but we were separated by barriers that the occupiers had set up,” he said.

According to Hajj Kassir, the joy was “indescribable”.

“It was the happiness of a lifetime and one of God’s days … because it was a day of victory where people felt that the blood of the martyrs bore and yielded this beautiful, kind, and clean victory. No one can deny that this victory was the fruit of the Mujahideen’s jihad for 18 years – from 1982 until 2000.”

Hajj Kassir concludes by praising the role of the people who paved the way to liberation.

“We have people worthy of these sacrifices because they are the ones who supported and embraced the resistance. Therefore, this jihad and support for the resistance is what produced the glory of May.”

The untold story about Hajj Imad in his role in the media and arts

When speaking about liberation, the memory of the person who had a hand in it automatically comes to mind – the great jihadi leader Hajj Imad Mughniyeh whose spirit hovered over all the victories of the resistance.

The deputy head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council Hajj Abdallah Kassir has memories with Hajj Imad that must be written down.

“Hajj Imad was not only a military or security leader, he was also a strategic leader, meaning he looked at matters concerning the media, culture, spirituality, psychology and propaganda from a military and security point of view,” Hajj Kassir said. “Hajj Imad came up with the idea to employ media production in coordination with the military. He directly funded some artistic works that we, as a media department, did not have enough of a budget for.”

Hajj Kassir recalls the song “Your Victory Shook the World” during the July 2006 war. It was one of the artistic productions that had Hajj Imad’s fingerprints.

“The idea of the clip as well as the idea of Arab artists participating in and shooting it using a drone all came from Hajj Imad.”

In another clip, Hajj Imad gathered 40 launchers in the Bayt Lif valley. The move was forbidden within the rules of the military establishment.

“But Hajj did it because his priority was to portray a terrifying scene to the enemy and send it a message,” according to Hajj Kassir.

One of the first security documentaries produced was also the brainchild of Hajj Imad. He supported and funded it.

“Hajj Imad was the one who was following up with the directors, and he also produced the movie ‘Al-Mersad’ which documents the war between the resistance and the ‘Israelis’,” Kassir says.

Hajj Kassir goes back to 1984-1985 during the days of the Technical Committee for the Islamic Media.

“The first artistic work and the first camera that filmed the resistance at the time, was supported by Hajj Imad. He sponsored the volunteers in this committee and created the conditions for them to work. In some very special events, he asked for their presence,” Hajj Kassir adds.
