Author: lecridespeuples

Address of Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, on May 5, 2021, as part of the joint speech of the leaders of the Axis of Resistance, in anticipation of the International Day of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) celebrated on May 7 2021.

This International Day was inaugurated by Imam Khomeini in 1979, the year of the triumph of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, to revive the Palestinian cause, and is celebrated on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan.

The military leaders of Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, AnsarAllah in Yemen and the Hashd al-Cha’bi in Iraq, as well as religious dignitaries such as the Imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Patriarch of the Jerusalem Orthodox Church and Sheikh Issa Qassem of Bahrain, along with other personalities, spoke during this virtual conference. Nasrallah’s intervention lasted only a quarter of an hour, while his speech on Al-Quds Day lasted almost an hour.

[..] There are negative developments, like the wave of normalization (of relations with Israel). When some Arab countries move towards normalization, it means that the rest of Arabs and Muslims, the rest of the countries and the living forces in the Islamic Community (Umma), must raise their voices even higher. This leads to greater responsibility: this negative point leads to more responsibility, more presence, and more expression of our position (condemning and) fighting the normalization process.

But despite everything, we are convinced that this normalization will not succeed in protecting this usurping entity (Israel), not at all! Certainly, it can somewhat lift the spirit of (the Israelis), give them more oxygen, possibilities, (a breath of fresh) air, but anyway, the countries who recently normalized have never been part of this battle (against Israel), thus their presence or exit (from our ranks) cannot have the least influence on the progress and outcome of this battle.

المنبر الموحّد لمحور المقاومة يوجه رسالة في يوم القدس العالمي
Speakers of the 2nd Axis of Resistance virtual conference in support of Palestine

Naturally, this set of factors, in addition to recent upheavals in the Middle East and around the world, the detente which is actually taking place in the region between certain countries, certain white flags which are starting to be raised here and there (by Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries), recognizing, in one way or another, their defeat and failure, or the dead end to which their horizon is confined, all of this makes us feel that we are closer than ever (to the liberation) of Al-Quds.

Of course, our responsibility for Al-Quds Day is to provide all possible help to the Palestinian people, to the Palestinian Resistance; the Axis of Resistance must be even more united and attached to the cause, and it already is, it must increase its readiness (for the final war), it must strengthen itself further, because it is the Axis of Resistance that will shape the future of the Middle East.

My last message will be for the Israelis themselves. I tell them this: you know well, in your heart of hearts, whether it is based on your religious texts or doctrines, on your books or your prophecies, and also based on what some of your leaders and experts say, and also some of your religious authorities, you know (very well) that this entity (Israel) has no future, that it is on the verge of extinction and that it has little time left to live, very little time. Therefore, in this battle you are wasting your energy, and your young people are wasting their youth and their blood, in vain and to no avail.

Either way, the sound logic that must be imposed on all occupiers and invaders is as follows: give back the land you have occupied to its true owners, and go back to where you came from. Otherwise you will be expelled in one way or another, by force or otherwise. This land belongs to the Palestinian people and the peoples of this region, in the diversity of their religious and doctrinal affiliations, but this land is by no means for Israel or for the colonizers, occupiers and settlers from all over the world.

We believe in this near future (where Israel won’t exist anymore), we believe in it very firmly, and this faith is not based only on religious and ideological bases, but is based (above all) on the data, on the events which occur, especially on those of the last decades, the last years and on what will happen (soon) in this region.

I would also like, in conclusion of this brief statement, to salute the grandiose soul of the great martyred leader, Hajj Qassem Soleimani, whose name, picture, soul, footprints, strategic thinking, presence on the ground and breathing remain strongly present, in all the battlefields and places of this Axis (of Resistance). It is impossible for us to forget him, nor to forget his grandiose martyrdom, nor do we forget his enormous benefits and his grandiose presence alongside all the forces of the Resistance in our region.

I must also conclude by greeting the Palestinian people, the young people of Al-Quds and all the children of this oppressed people, fighting, resistant, patient, who remain firmly attached to their rights. As I have always said on every occasion, this is the basis (of everything): as long as the Palestinian people remain committed to these rights, as long as they continue their fight, despite all the betrayals in the world, no one will succeed in liquidating the Palestinian cause.

The (massive) presence of the Palestinian people today (demonstrating) in the squares is awe-inspiring, a divine proof on any Arab, on any Muslim and on every free man in this world on whom weighs the responsibility to stand with strength and with all his capacities at the side of this people.

For Al-Quds Day, despite the Covid-19, any form of demonstration of support that does not contradict the health instructions, we call for it so that this expression of solidarity may be frank and strong, with the Grace of God.

May the peace of God be upon you, along with His mercy and blessings.

Hezbollah raises war readiness to 100%: Report

Hezbollah raises war readiness to 100%: Report

Description:

A recent news report by the Lebanese news outlet Elnashra claims that Hezbollah has gone to full-level war alertness amid rising regional tensions between Israel and the Iran-led Axis of Resistance.

– Elnashra sources: Hezbollah warned against the Israeli (military) exercise, as the Israeli army is currently repeating the same steps that preceded the July 2006 war

– Elnashra sources: The Israeli (military) exercise hands the decision of war and peace to Kochavi, and this is what raises concerns for Hezbollah

Confidential sources revealed to Elnashra that “the Israeli (military) exercise that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah talked about in his lastest speech is extremely dangerous”, explaining that “this exercise simulates a major war imposed on Israel on the southern and northern borders of Palestine, as well as the Sinai front and the (Israeli) interior. (This exercise also simulates a scenario) in which Israel is exposed to a huge amount of missiles being fired by the resistance forces of Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine and the Gaza Strip, and especially (simulates a scenario in which) protest movements (also) potentially erupt in the West Bank and the interior”.

The sources pointed out that “conducting the exercise in this way aims to ‘interlock arms’”, which means that the (Israeli) field commander who is present on the ground and is in charge of defending the Galilee (region) for example, ought to be able to deal with (various) land-based weapons i.e. armor, artillery, air and naval command and intelligence, and has to be able to regulate the course of the (various elements of the) operation”.

Explaining that “about two and a half months ago, Israel conducted a small exercise that lasted for seven days, yet this one is the first (of its kind) ever since the establishment of the (Israeli) entity, and it must be noted that this exercise is dangerous in that it gives the power (to declare) peace and war to the Israeli Chief of Staff, General Aviv Kochavi. Furthermore, the enemy has started and continues the mobilization of its elite brigades – six brigades (in total) – about a week ago”, stressing that “Hezbollah warned against this exercise because in past wars, Israel worked on transporting soldiers and military personnel from the training fields directly to the battlefield, and this is what is happening now at the southern front of Lebanon and the northern part of Palestine”.

The sources also pointed out that “Hezbollah has raised combat readiness in the South (of Lebanon), and in the various areas, formations and military classifications of Quneitra. (Hezbollah) has also kept on constant duty a portion of its members, called up a number of its forces, and raised its combat readiness from tonight to 100%, something that has not happened since the July 2006 war”.

Sayyed Nasrallah Warns “Israel” against Any Mistake, Balance In Favor of Resistance Axis 

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on the last Friday of the Holy Ramadan month a speech marking Al-Quds international Day.

At the beginning of his televised speech, Sayyed Nasrallah assured that he is neither infected with Covid-19 nor suffering any of its symptoms. “I’m just suffering from bronchitis which happens to me regularly due to seasons’ change,” His Eminence clarified.

Regarding the marked event, he stressed that “The Palestinian people grants the Resistance its legitimacy, given that they did neither abandon their state nor Al-Quds.”

“What we are witnessing today in the Palestinian squares and in Sheikh al-Jarrah Neighborhood is a good proof to this,” the Resistance leader added, noting that “The most important and dangerous development that must be affirmed is Gaza’s participation on the front line as this opens great horizons to the resistance.”

He further underscored that “the ‘Israeli” entity is fully aware that the involvement of Gaza in the conflict resembles a very serious threat.”

In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah urged the leaders of Palestinian resistance to “continue with this approach as it will change the rules of engagement [with the ‘Israeli’ enemy].”

Hailing the Palestinians’ steadfastness, he stated: “We are sure that the Palestinian people are suitable to preserve Al-Quds, its land, and rights.”

“The ‘Israelis’ thought that economic pressure and the atmosphere of desperation will affect the Palestinians, but they were shocked,” His Eminence went on to say.

Moving to the Iranian Front, Hezbollah Secretary General underlined that “All ‘Israeli’ bets regarding Iran have failed.”

“The Axis of Resistance’s solidness is very important to the region and it will reflect majorly on the Palestinian Cause and the struggle with the ‘Israeli’ enemy,” he added, noting that “Iran has greatly crossed the dangerous phase and the enemy’s bets to take Iran to war have ended. The bets of some regional countries on this have also ended.”

On the same level, Sayyed Nasrallah viewed that “Iran today is the strongest country within the Axis of Resistance and all American and ‘Israeli’ options to force Iran to give up its nuclear program have ended.”

His Eminence also recalled that “The biggest Iranian response to the Natanz attack was increasing the Uranium enrichment, which terrified ‘Israel’.”

According to the Resistance Leader, “Based on our experience with Iran in the past 40 years, Iran does not bargain at the expense of its allies; it does not negotiate on their behalf and it does not abandon them.”

Expressing Hezbollah’s support to every regional, international, or Arab dialogue, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “Dialogue strengthens the Axis of Resistance and weakens the enemy. We’re assured towards Iran’s [behavior].”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah commented on the talk about Saudi-Iranian talks by saying: “Many Arab states are in contacts with Syria, and Saudi Arabia can’t impose its conditions on Syria regarding its relations with Iran while it is itself negotiating Iran.”

“Those who should be concerned with the Iranian-Saudi talks are the Riyadh allies, not the allies of Iran,” His Eminence said.

Meanwhile, he mentioned that “Syria is on the path of recovery and the most dangerous challenge it’s facing is that of economy.”

“This challenge isn’t limited to Syria alone, but to several peoples in the region,” he stated, praising the fact that “The people of the region are determined to withstand and confront.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that “Yemen is a qualitative accumulation to the Axis of Resistance under its young and honest leadership.”

“There is a breakdown of some axes and alliances that appeared in face of the Resistance Axis,” His Eminence viewed, pointing out that “The moral balance is in favor of the Resistance’s Axis.”

Commenting on the “Israeli” scene, he explained that “The ‘Israelis’ are concerned today due to the growing capabilities of the Axis of Resistance.”

“The ‘Israeli’ entity is in trouble and its wall is cracking; there is a leadership crisis and this is a sign of collapse and weakness,” Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say, noting that “All signs of weakness and decline began to appear clearly in the enemy’s entity, while we are witnessing the renewed activity of the Palestinian people.”

In this context, Hezbollah Secretary General predicted that “The course in the enemy’s entity is heading to a civil war and there is serious concern in the enemy’s society over this reality.”

He also recalled that “The Syrian defense missile that hit Dimona worried the ‘Israelis’,” noting that “The enemy’s army is not confident of its ability to confront fire from several fronts should war erupt.”

“The ‘Israelis’ are worried due to the operations taking place in the West Bank and due to Gaza’s involvement in the developments taking place in Al-Quds.,” Sayyed Nasrallah unveiled, pointing out that “The ‘Israeli’ ground forces are worried and weak and this is why they are holding several military drills.”

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah sent the apartheid entity a sounding warning: “Hezbollah won’t tolerate any ‘Israeli’ mistake during the major ‘Israeli’ drill that begins Sunday. We will take calm and responsible precautions.”

“The enemy must know that we will be cautious, alert and prepared,” His Eminence added, warning that “Any wrong move towards Lebanon during the drill will be an adventure by the enemy. The enemy will be mistaken should it think that we will be afraid to confront any attempt to alter the rules of engagement or any security or military action.”

He also was clear enough to tell the “Israelis”: “We will not be lenient and we will not tolerate any mistake, violation or hostile move by the enemy across the entire Lebanese territory.”

Regarding the issue of maritime border demarcation, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “We [Hezbollah] don’t interfere in the issue of maritime borders and this is left to the Lebanese state.”

He reminded that after 2000 liberation, “Hezbollah interfered in the issue of Shebaa Farms and Kafrshouba Hills after the Lebanese state confirmed that they are Lebanese.”

Commenting on those who interpret Hezbollah’s silence over the issue as “embarrassment towards the allies,” His Eminence said: “This is not true… We, as a resistance, have not and will not interfere in the issue of the border demarcation. Let the State shoulder its historic responsibility as to the demarcation of the border and the preservation of the Lebanese people’s rights and let it consider that it is relying on real strength.”

“We have found that it is in Lebanon’s interest and in the certain interest of the resistance that we stay away from this issue,” Hezbollah’s leader added, noting that “Lebanon is not weak at all” and that “the United States and ‘Israel’ can’t impose on the Lebanese what they want.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

COVID-19 Infection?

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

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

International Al-Quds Day

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

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

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

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

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

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

Powerful Iran

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

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

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

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

Syria, Iraq and Yemen

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

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

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

‘Israel’ Weakened

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Israeli Drill

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

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

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

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

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

By Staff

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

نصرالله عصر التنوير وماكرون محاكم التفتيش Nasrallah – the Age of Enlightenment, Macron – the Inquisition

ناصر قنديل

العلمانية التي ظهرت كنظام سياسي وعقد اجتماعي للدولة الأوروبية المعاصرة، هي منتج سياسي وقانوني لثقافة أعمق نهضت على أكتاف الثورة الصناعيّة وتجسّدت في القرنين الثامن عشر والتاسع عشر بثورة العقل والمنطق. وما عُرف بعصر التنوير الذي قاده عمالقة بحجم فولتير وروسو ومونتسكيو، وتبلورت شعاراتها السياسية بالحرية والأخاء والمساواة في الثورة الفرنسية، بينما تبلورت فلسفته العميقة بالاحتكام للعقل، وكانت قطيعة مع تاريخ معاكس مثلته محاكم التفتيش الكاثوليكية التي دفع فيلسوف كبير مثل برونو وعلماء كبار مثل كوبرنيكوس وجاليلو ثمناً باهظاً لها بتهمة الهرطقة على قاعدة تحريم الاحتكام للعقل والعلم، بينما سياسياً واجتماعياً طورد الإصلاحيون باسم التبرؤ من البدع كما حدث مع الفيلسوف ميشال سيرفيه الذي أحرق حياً في جنيف بتهمة رفض عقيدة التثليث، فيما شكلت جرائمها بحق المسلمين في الأندلس أبرز ما حمله سجلها التاريخي تحت عنوان فحص الولاء لله، وشكلت فكرياً وثقافياً وجهاً من وجوه استمرار الحملات الصليبية.

في ما يشبه استعادة مناخات الحروب الصليبية يتبادل الرئيسان الفرنسي والتركي عبثاً بالعقائد والعواطف والانفعالات المنبثقة عنها، حيث يصب كل منهما من طرفه وفي البيئة التي يخاطبها زيتاً على نار حرب عبثية، لا يتورّع فيها الرئيس الفرنسي امانويل ماكرون عن التحدث عن أزمة في الإسلام، وإرهاب إسلامي، وفاشية إسلامية، أملاً بأن يتزعم جبهة تضم العلمانيين بداعي الدفاع عن حرية التعبير في شقها المتصل بالتغطية على ما يطال المقدسات الإسلامية، وتضم المتطرفين المسيحيين، الذين لا يخفون ضيقهم من تنامي حضور وتعداد المسلمين في فرنسا خصوصاً وأوروبا عموماً، وإلى الفريقين تضم اليمين الوطني الرافض لتكاثر المهاجرين من البلاد الإسلامية، أملاً بأن يشكل هذا الثلاثي مصدر زعامة تشبه زعامات بناها قادة الحروب الصليبية، بينما يسعى الرئيس التركي رجب أردوغان، وفي ظل نزاع مصلحي بين الدولتين الفرنسية والتركية، لقيادة جبهة تضم الجاليات الإسلامية المقهورة تحت ظلم سياسات عنصرية في أوروبا، وتضم التنظيمات الإرهابية التكفيرية التي تشغّلها تركيا، وكانت فرنسا شريكها في التشغيل طوال سنوات الحرب على سورية، وتضم ثالثاً الشعوب العربية من المسلمين التي تسمع بصعوبة كلاماً منخفض الصوت لحكوماتها الواقعة تحت تبعية ذليلة لحكومات الغرب، فتعجز عن التجرؤ لمخاطبة الحكومات الغربية، والرئيس الفرنسي في المقدمة بلغة شجاعة تنتقد وتصحح وتعترض. وهذه الحكومات التابعة هي شريك لحكومات فرنسا وأوروبا في رعاية الجماعات الإرهابية وتشجيع الفكر التكفيري، لكن بغرض استعمال نتاج هذه الرعاية في ليبيا وسورية وليس في أوروبا.

في هذا القحط الفكري، والانفلات القاتل للعصبيّات، يخرج رجل دين معمّم من أتباع الرسول وعشاقه ليقود الدعوة للتعقل وتحمّل المسؤولية، ووضع النقاط على الحروف، مستعيداً المعاني العميقة لشعارات الثورة الفرنسية ودعوات روسو وفولتير، حيث الحرية هي الاحترام العميق لحرية المعتقد. وهو في الأولوية معتقد الأقلية والضعفاء والمقهورين، والأخاء هو الترفّع عن منطق التمييز العنصري على اساس الدين والعرق واللون والجنس، والمساواة هي نزاهة تطبيق معيار المحاكمة العقلية للمفاهيم قبل أن تكون المساواة أمام القانون، حيث لا يستوي نص تحريم الحرية والعقل تحت شعار معاداة السامية، ولو التزما كل التحفظ العلمي والضوابط الأخلاقية، وتطلق حرية بث الكراهيّة، ولو تمت بصورة عبثية تستخف بالضوابط الأخلاقية والقيمية للأخوة الإنسانية، تحت شعار حرية التعبير، فجادل رجل الدين المعمم، بلغة عصر التنوير كوريث لمنجزات الحضارة الإنسانية، من يفترض أنه الوصي على تنفيذ منتجاتها من الموقع الدستوري والسياسي، بعدما ارتضى أن يتحول إلى قائد جيش في الحرب الصليبية أو رئيس غرفة من غرف محاكم تفتيش.

كلام السيد حسن نصرلله في ما تشهده علاقة المسلمين والجاليات الإسلامية بالقضايا المثارة على مساحة أوروبا من وحي قضية الرسوم المسيئة للرسول والجرائم الإرهابية المتذرّعة بها، مرافعة فلسفية عقلانية تستعيد روح عصر التنوير والاحتكام للعقل، والحل الذي تبنّاه ختاماً لمرافعته، مستعيداً مقترح الأزهر بتشريع عالمي لتحريم النيل من المقدسات، حجر متعدد الأهداف في يوم الوحدة الإسلامية، بينما يتساءل بعض رجال القانون في فرنسا، لماذا لا تتم محاكمة أصحاب الرسوم المسيئة للرسول تحت بند العداء للسامية، أليس الرسول من أحفاد سام بن نوح، وقد روى الترمذي أن الرسول هو القائل بأن “سام أبو العرب ويافث أبو الروم وحام أبو الحبش”؟

Nasrallah – the Age of Enlightenment, Macron – the Inquisition

2/11/2020

Written by Nasser Kandil,

Secularism is a political regime and a social aspect of the contemporary European state, it is a political and legal outcome of a deeper culture that emerged as a result of the Industrial Revolution and was embodied in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the revolution of reason and logic or as was called the Age of Enlightenment led by the giants as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Montesquieu. Its political slogans called for freedom, brotherhood, and equality during the French Revolution. But this movement was faced with counter thinking represented by the Catholic Inquisition which a great philosopher as Bruno and great scholars as Copernicus and Galileo had paid a high cost in charge of heresy based on the prohibition of resorting to reason and science. Politically and socially, many reformists were chased under the name of the disavowal of heresies, as happened with the philosopher Michael Servetus who was burnt alive in Geneva on the accusation of rejecting the doctrine of Trinity. Its history was known for its crimes against Muslims in Andalusia under the name of loyalty to God, so intellectually and culturally it formed an aspect of the continuation of the Crusades.

As in the Crusades, the French and the Turkish Presidents exchanged in vain beliefs, emotions, and the outcome feelings. Each one of them has tried to evoke a futile war. The French President Emmanuel Macron did not hesitate to talk about a crisis in Islam, Islamic terrorism, and Islamic Fascism, hoping to lead a front that includes the secularists in order to defend the liberty of expression about Islamic sanctities, the Christian extremists, who are fed up with the growing number of Muslims in Europe in general and in France in particular, and the National right which rejects the growing number of immigrants from Islamic countries, hoping that this front can be a source of leadership as the leaderships of the Crusades. While the Turkish President Recep Erdogan was seeking to lead a front that includes the oppressed Muslim communities due to the tyranny of the racist policies in Europe, the takfiri terrorist organizations backed by Turkey, and the Arab Muslim nations who are suffering from their governments that are subordinated to the governments of the West, and do not dare to address them bravely, criticize or oppose. These governments are partners of the governments of France and Europe in sponsoring the terrorist groups and supporting the takfiri belief in order to be operated in Libya and Syria not in Europe.

In this intellectual aridity and fatal chaos of fanaticism, a religious man from the followers and lovers of the Prophet emerged to lead the call to be rational, to bear the responsibility, and to be clear, recalling the deeper meanings of the slogans of the French Revolution and the calls of Rousseau and Voltaire where freedom means the respect of the freedom of belief which is the belief of the minority, the weak, and the oppressed, and where brotherhood means to be away from the logic of the racial discrimination on the basis of religion, race, color, and gender, and where equality is the fairness of applying the mental judgment of concepts before it is governed by law, and where the texts of prohibiting freedom and reason cannot be dealt with under the slogan of anti-Semitism even if scientific reservation and moral controls were taken into consideration, and the freedom of  feeling hostile cannot be spread irrationally underestimating all moral controls of the human brotherhood under the slogan of the liberty of expression. Therefore, this religious leader has argued in the language of the Age of Enlightenment “as a heritage of the achievements of the human civilization” the man who is supposed to be the trustee constitutionally and politically not an army commander in the Crusades or a head of one of the inquisitions.

The words of Al Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah regarding the relationship of Muslims and the Islamic communities with the issues rose in Europe after the offensive drawings against the Prophet and the terrorist crimes relating are a philosophical and rational argument that recalls the spirit of the Age of Enlightenment and the resorting to reason. He adopted the suggestion of Al Azhar of an international legislation to prohibit the underestimation of sanctities as a base in the Day of the Islamic unity. While some jurists in France are wondering why the owners of the offensive drawings are not prosecuted under the name of anti-Semitism, Is not the Messenger one of the grandsons of Sam Bin Noah?! Al Tirmidhi narrated that the Prophet “peace be upon him” said: “Sam was the father of Arabs, Ham the father of the Ethiopians, and Yafith the father of the Romans”.

Nasrallah: US’ top priority is preventing a China-Russia-Iran alliance

April 05, 2021

Description:

In a recent televised speech, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah claimed that the Biden administration’s top priority today was to prevent the formation of a major alliance or axis between China, Russia, and Iran.

Nasrallah also claimed that the United States and Israel were today in a state of decline, while the Iran-led ‘Axis of Resistance’ was on an upward trajectory.

The ‘Axis of Resistance’ broadly refers to a strategic anti-Israel/anti-US imperialist alliance composed of, but not limited to, Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Iraq’s Hashed al-Shaabi, Yemen’s Ansarullah, and various Palestinian armed factions.

Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah:

Of course, the Israelis too – (staying on) the Israeli file – the Israelis these days, I mean in the past few weeks and months, almost every day, despite the (many military/security) manoeuvres, they (nevertheless) express very publicly their concerns and worries over the fact that the Axis of Resistance is developing, that it is developing its capabilities. On the other hand, yes indeed, the Resistance (Axis) is working on the development and accumulation of its capabilities. This means that their worry has (real) foundations, (the Israelis) are not making up (this sense) of worry and concern.

Today, the Axis of Resistance is not silent, it is not an axis experiencing stagnation. On the contrary (my) honourable brothers, the Axis of Resistance has (successfully) passed – in these past 10 years – through the worst, most dangerous phase of its life and history. This is evident in what happened in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq (these past 10 years), as well as (what happened in) the entire region, and in the severe embargo and maximum sanctions (campaign) on Iran and so on.

Indeed, this axis is facing these threats with increased work, hard work, diligent work, away from any type of showing-off (i.e. fruitless muscle-flexing). (The goal of all this work) is to accumulate the capabilities and power (of the Resistance Axis), (capabilities) that will decisively decide the future.

I would like to conclude with the following words; I wish to depict the international and regional scene, and share some advice too, advice to (some in) Lebanon and to the region as a whole, not only to the Lebanese. Today, there is definitely a (particular) scene in the world, and I will be brief here, as I have already taken a lot of time and I have only got a few more minutes according to the brothers. They gave me limited time, otherwise, these days I’m taking much time – I’m delivering long speeches.

There are significant international developments (occurring today), and it is clear that the top priority of the US administration is China and Russia. China as an economic force that can become the top economic force in the world, which Biden says will not happen (as long as) he is around. Russia, of course, is not an economic threat. They rather view it more from the military, political and security angles, in addition to competition (with it) on the global (level).

There are ongoing American efforts to prevent the formation of a coalition, front, axis, or something of this nature, whereby Iran stands besides China and Russia. For this reason, they are seeking to address the nuclear file issue with Iran, with an emphasis on diplomacy. Of course, the emphasis on diplomacy here is not an American act of kindness; it is a testament to the power of Iran. By the way, Iran’s position on this issue is powerful and firm. What (Iran) did not give to Trump under the maximum sanctions (campaign) and daily war threats, it will not give (Biden) today while it stands on the verge of (successfully) overcoming the embargo and sanctions phase.

So, these are the priorities of the Americans, they are trying to work out how to deal with the files of the (Middle East) region in one way or another; let’s go to Yemen and see how we can extinguish the Yemen war, or let’s go to Afghanistan and see how we can clean up the situation in Afghanistan. (This is what is on their mind), but their approach is not clear yet, because they have not taken final decisions (on these high-level matters), according to the information (we currently have).

Regardless of what some analysts say, concerning Syria and Lebanon, it is obvious that the (the American side) is distracted from Palestine. What I want to say – through this quick analysis – to the friends of America in our region, and to whoever is betting on the American administration in our region, I say to them that (America’s) priorities – or in other words, there are new developments that they need to take into consideration.

The first development is that the new American priorities are not (related to) our region, except for what relates to Israel. Their priorities now are Russia, China, and how to resolve the issue with Iran. Thus, if you want to resolve your crises, end your wars, solve your problems, improve your situation and achieve compromises, if you are waiting for the Americans to achieve all of this, then the wait will be very long.

Secondly, America is no longer the America that you know. There is a new term that his eminence Imam Khamenei presented last year, and he had placed a lot of emphasis on it. I hereby call for reflection on (this term) so that we don’t take it as a mere headline or form of political rhetoric: “The decline of America”. America is in decline. In the words of some literature, it can be described as (on a) “descending arc”. America is now in a state of fall; in a state of descent.

America’s upcoming challenges today, most of them are related to internal problems, regarding the Corona Virus; the economic situation and its consequences; the white race (and race-related issues), fanaticism, infighting and associated dangers. America has never experienced internal dangers the likes of which it is facing today. This requires a prolonged discussion, but there is a (certain) outlook (on this issue which I will share later).

Of course, when we talk strategically, we are not talking about one year, or two, three, four or five – we are talking about a trajectory. The trajectory of the US is a trajectory of decline, descent, and downfall. Whereas the trajectory of the Axis of Resistance in the region, (with its) states, movements, and peoples, is an upward trajectory.

Priorities will (thus) be different. Therefore, I hereby call on you all, as states, peoples, regimes, movements, peoples, sects, groups, and whatever else: let us not wait for America, let us not wait for the (rest of the) world. Let us not wait for international developments. Let us hold dialogue on the regional and national (levels). Let us hold dialogue among all the states of the region, and dialogue among the peoples of the region, in order to resolve our problems and crises.

Let us not put off until tomorrow what we can do today, as the present day is better for you than tomorrow. I believe that all those who belong to the Axis of Resistance, as a result of the honesty, sincerity, and concern (they have) for their homelands, they are ready to reach certain resolutions, solutions, and compromises that would allow us to overcome all these difficult phases. This is the horizon that we see before us.

Of course, in light of this international and regional shift, Israel, just like its master, is on a path of decline. It is on “the descending arc”. The earnest wish of his eminence, (the late) Sheikh Ahmad Zein, that which the brothers spoke about before me, this wish is strong and vibrant. God willing, some of us – at the very least – will enter (the city of) al-Quds and pray in al-Quds, God willing. This is the horizon which we can see.

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassasn Nasrallah delivered on Wednesday a speech on the memorial ceremony held by the Association of Muslim Scholars to honor its late Chairman of the Board of Trustees, judge Sheikh Ahmad Zein.

As His Eminence renewed Hezbollah’s condolences on the demise of the great Sheikh, dear resistance fighter, father and teacher Sheikh Ahmad Zein, His Eminence hailed “Sheikh Zein as a sublime model of faith, religiosity, knowledge and sincerity.”

“Sheikh Ahmad Zein resembles a model of ethics, humility, transparency, tenderness, friendliness, love and kindness,” Sayyed Nasrallah added, noting that “Sheikh Ahmad Zein is a model of the revolutionary resistant who was clear in his stances, vision, and bravery.”

In parallel, the resistance leader underscored that “Sheikh Ahmad Zein was stable and solid in the path of [Muslim] unity and resistance.”

“Unlike Sheikh Ahmad Zein, other people’s stances changed due to personal desperation, Petrodollars and authority,” he confirmed, praising “Sheikh Ahmad Zein, who walked a path of an intellectual, juristic, and religious basis on which he remained firm.”

According to Sayyed Nasrallah, “Sheikh Ahmed placed before him the constants of Palestine, its people, Al-Quds and the occupied land from the sea to the river. He took upon himself the cause of confronting the ‘Israeli’-American scheme to dominate the region.”

“Sheikh Ahmed, from the beginning to the end, was with Palestine and against the liquidation of its cause and with everyone who stood with it,” His Eminence highlighted, recalling that “Sheikh Ahmad Zein stood from the beginning with the revolution in Iran, because it supported Palestine.”

Moreover, Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say: “Sheikh Zein backed and supported all resistance fighters and scholars. He offered all what he could for the sake of resistance.”

He further said that “The most difficult situation for Sheikh Ahmed Zein was in Syria, and he endured a lot for that stance.”

“The most important reason behind targeting Syria was because of Palestine and the resistance, which Sheikh Zein had been aware of,” His Eminence mentioned, reminding that “Sheikh Zein rejected the regime’s practices in Bahrain and the war on Yemen despite all the pressures, and he was one of the scholars who uncovered the fabrications and misleading regarding the talk of the so-called sectarian war in Yemen.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also hinted that “The most difficult level of Sheikh Zein’s and the resistance scholars’ political life was in this decade. Recently, stances made by Sheikh Zein and other scholars were of great importance.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “In the last stage, the position of Sheikh Zein and other scholars had great significance. One of the most dangerous and difficult problems was those who tried to turn the battles into a sectarian war.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the historic role of many scholars who buried the sectarian division long sought by conspiring states, noting that what happened in many countries was intended to be turned into a Sunni-Shia strife as in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, etc…

“Those who broke the strife in this war are the wonderful and distinguished Sunni elite,” he elaborated.

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “There is a new political and media war against the oppressed Yemeni people through showing that Saudi Arabia wants to end the war while Ansarullah refuses this.”

“What is proposed to the Yemenis is not an end to the war. It is just a ceasefire while all other forms of war continue such as blocking the airport, seaports, and borders,” he emphasized, noting that “What is proposed to Yemenis is a major deceit that neither Sayyed Abdul Malik Al-Houthi nor the Ansarullah movement or the Yemeni scholars will be deceived with, not even the Yemeni children will accept this.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed “The Yemeni people who are as great in politics as in resistance.”

He further advised the Saudis and the Americans not to waste time after they have touched the Yemenis could not be deceived. “Ceasing the fire without lifting the siege is misleading and reflects the desire to achieve what they were unable to score in the military field.”

To the Saudis, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a sounding message: “Don’t waste time as your game won’t deceive the Yemenis. Just stop the war and end the blockade.”

On the Palestinian front, His Eminence viewed that “Palestinian steadfastness is the reason behind ‘the deal of the century’s’ failure, particularly disappearance from circulation.”

“The axis of resistance passed and crossed the worst and most dangerous stage in its history, and it continues to meet threats with hard work and the accumulation of capabilities,” Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, underlining that “Iran will not give today what it didn’t give during the harshest stage of sanctions and the daily threat with war.”

Moreover, he underlined that “Iran is on the threshold of overcoming the blockade and sanctions, and it has proven its strength and abilities.”

“Biden’s admin is seeking not to let Iran be part of an alliance that includes Russia and China. However, what Iran did not offer amid the harshest sanctions and daily threats of war it won’t offer now. It’s on its way to overcome the blockade and sanctions. It [Iran] proved strength.”

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah predicted that “The US is moving in decline, while the axis of resistance is moving in an upward progression.”

To the Lebanese, His Eminence sent the following advise:“Let us not wait for America, the world, and developments. Let us set internal and regional dialogues to solve our problems.”

“America’s allies should know that the current US administration’s priorities are not in our region anymore, and that the US is sinking,” he said, warning that “Everybody should learn that Lebanon has exhausted its time. And it is now that we must reach a solution.”

[…] Those (Hezbollah fighters) war-wounded who fought and made sacrifices, as well as the wounded people who bore the burden of these struggles —I am talking about the many wounded civilians affected by Israeli aggressions and abuses by collaborators during the occupation (of Lebanon), whether they are war-wounded among combatants or civilians due to the consequences of the battle against Takfiri (terrorist) groups, those who were injured by the car bombs that were sent to our towns and villages in previous years, or even during the Israeli occupation, because (the Zionists) also used car bombs against our towns and villages to kill our cadres and our fighters…

Anyway, day after day, these war-wounded become more lucid, as is the case of the families of martyrs, and of all the resistance fighters, mujahideen and supporters of this path (of Resistance): their awareness, understanding and faith are constantly increasing thanks to (new) facts and (new) data, confirming and convincing them that the struggle in which they entered, fought and were injured, that the place where they were injured, paying the price for their stance (in favor of Resistance), was rightful and appropriate. Regarding the fight against Israel, the legitimacy of this fight is clear, and concerning (the fight against) the terrorist takfiri groups, I will limit myself to pointing out only one thing before evoking the internal situation (in Lebanon): day after day, as we now commemorate the tenth anniversary of the outbreak of the universal war against Syria, the role and true identity of these armed Takfiri terrorist groups appear day after day with ever greater clarity, as well as the role and identity of those who use them, direct them, protect them, support them and push them to act (in such and such a direction).

In addition to the confessions and previously revealed documents that prove all of this, new evidence is emerging day by day, and I hope that despite the attention of the Lebanese being monopolized by (the acute economic crisis of the) dollar and its parity with the Lebanese pound (which has reached its lowest threshold in history), the Lebanese people and peoples of the region will take into consideration what was published yesterday in the media by our brothers in Yemen, in Sana’a.

Living evidence, a sound recording, shows that the Director of the CIA himself (George Tenet), expressed concern for the fate of a well-known al-Qaeda leader (Anwar Al-Awlaki), who was detained in Sana’a during the time of the former President of Yemen (Saleh), to the point of contacting the latter directly to ask him to release this top leader of the Al-Qaeda organization. And this while it is a terrorist group, and that you (Americans) have torn apart the whole Middle East from (the invasion of) Afghanistan (in 2001) to (the invasion of) Iraq (in 2003) and the whole world on the pretext of fighting Al-Qaeda. But that does not prevent Tenet from demanding the release of this terrorist leader, demanding that he be handed over (to US forces). Of course, (Anwar Al-Awlaki) was released, and for a while he carried out a lot of (terrorist) operations. Then when they no longer needed him they killed him. All of this is clearly said in an explicit sound recording.

This rare audio (with English subtitles) recording gives us an eloquent glimpse into how the CIA operates behind the scenes, even with heads of States who have no choice but to oblige to any kind of request. The fact that this sensational revelation has been completely ignored by the Western media is indicative of the invincible omerta imposed on the so-called “War on Terror”, which is only an instrumentalisation of terrorism to justify the perpetual military occupation of the Middle East. That the al-Qaeda attack referred to in this phone call, a suicide bombing attack on the USS Cole on October 12, 2000, killed 17 US Marines and injured 39 others, shows the extent of US cynicism. For more details about Anwar al-Awlaki, the first Muslim in history to conduct a prayer service in the U.S. Capitol in 2001, see Did the CIA pressure Yemen to release al-Qaeda propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki?

Other new documents were (recently) released indicating that the US secret services recruited prisoners who were being held in US prisons in Iraq, in order to create what has been called the Islamic State in Iraq, then the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) and finally the Islamic State Organization. The role of the US secret services in recruiting, (training) and releasing leaders from what would become ISIS (has been proved in new documents), as well as their role in the creation of the Front al-Nosra, resulting from a split with ISIS. And until now, the role of the American secret services in the release of ISIS members who were prisoners of the Qasad militia (Syrian Democratic Forces, Kurdish separatists and pro-Americans) east of the Euphrates, and sending them to Iraq to revive ISIS there, while others were brought to the US base in al-Tanf in Syria, near the Jordanian border, to push them towards the Badia (a vast semi-desert region in central Syria) and to perpetrate the (terrorist) actions that we see almost daily in this region.

Therefore, they are by no means Islamic / Islamist groups, nor groups that aspire to justice, welfare, (political) participation, democracy or elections. We are facing armed Takfiri terrorist groups that are created, trained, armed, supported, directed and financed by the American secret services, which organize and facilitate their travel, and advise and guide them in their various actions aimed at destroying armies, destroying peoples, destroying societies, and enabling US hegemony in the region, so that Israel would be the refuge, the hope, the pearl, the jewel of the Middle East (while all other countries would be ablaze). This is the old and new project of successive American administrations.

I only wanted to recall this and say that these war-wounded (Hezbollah fighters and supporters), who are in very large numbers, and who took part in this battle (against ISIS, Al-Nosra, etc.), contributed to defend Syria, of course, but also to defend Lebanon, the Resistance, Palestine and the future of this region and this Umma (Muslim community), especially since these documents speak clearly of the purpose of the creation of these (terrorist) groups during these last decades. And these goals are still relevant today.

Anyway, on this day of yours, O my dearest war-wounded, O my brothers and sisters, I address you and your noble families, especially the mothers and wives of the wounded. To all these noble families, I address my congratulations on this day, on this occasion and on this commemoration of the birth (of Abu Fadhl al-Abbas, half-brother of Imam Hussein). […]

حملة إعلاميّة على كلام السيد… من دون خطاب إعلاميّ

ناصر قنديل

خلال سنتين يمكن إحصاء انخراط عشرات المنابر الإعلاميّة القديمة والجديدة والمستجدة في حملات مبرمجة تستهدف موقف حزب الله وتسعى إلى شيطنته، ربطاً بكلام قاله سابقاً وزير الخارجية الأميركية السابق مايك بومبيو، عن تحميل حزب الله مسؤولية كل أزمات لبنان، وإقفال الطريق على كل الحلول، وكلما كان للحزب موقف لافت تجاه الشأن الداخليّ خصوصاً على لسان أمينه العام السيد حسن نصرالله، تنطلق موجة من الصخب الإعلامي والسياسي، تحت عناوين تصل حد المبالغة في تضخيم أو تحجيم الوقائع التي ترد في الخطاب، للوصول الى نظرية محورها، أن حزب الله يرهن مستقبل لبنان وأوضاعه خدمة لعلاقته بإيران ومصالحها، ودائماً من دون تقديم أي دليل مقارن علمياً، بين حجم التدخل الأميركي وحجم التدخل الإيراني، طالما أن القضية تدور على توظيف النفوذ في لبنان ضمن مفاوضات طرفها الأول طهران وطرفها الآخر هو واشنطن، من دون أن ينتبه الذين يقولون إن طهران هي المشكلة وإن واشنطن هي الحل، فهم بذلك أول من يربط مستقبل لبنان يهذا التفاوض، ويجعل لبنان ورقة قوة لأحد الفريقين.

يترافق ذلك مع استنتاجات من نوع، التحذير من خطورة الحملة الإعلامية وقوتها واتساع مداها، بالاستناد إلى حجم المجندين فيها من سياسيين وإعلاميين ومنابر، لتأتي محطة حدث لاحق لتقول إن موازين القوى الإعلامية والسياسية لم تتغير، وإن حملة جديدة تنطلق، فيظهر ان حلفاء حزب الله لا زالوا حلفاءه، وأن بيئة حزب الله الشعبية لا تزال بيئته المتماسكة، وهنا تبدو دعوات جلد الذات التي يقوم بها بعض المؤيدين للحزب والمقاومة، تحت عنوان اختلال التوازن الإعلامي بين المقاومة وخصومها، في غير مكانها، بل يصحّ الحديث عن فشل الحملات، خصوصاً عندما يكون معيار النجاح والفشل، هو في مدى القدرة على تغيير الاصطفافات سواء للتحالفات، أو للبيئة المحيطة بالمقاومة. وهذا ما تقول أحداث السنتين رغم كثافة الحملات، إن شيئاً فيها لن يتغيّر، وإن حدث تغيير فهو باتجاه شدّ عصب البيئة الحاضنة للمقاومة لتتمسّك أكثر بخياراتها، وهذا يعني نجاحاً في الإعلام المقاوم، الذي يشكل كلام السيد نصرالله صواريخه الدقيقة، التي لا تصمد أمامها لا جبهة داخلية ولا جليل ولا قبة حديدية لدى الخصوم، تماماً كما لا تصمد الإمكانات الهائلة لجيش الإحتلال أمام التحدّي الذي تمثله المقاومة بإمكانات متواضعة قياساً بما لدى كيان الاحتلال.

كما هو الفارق بين جيش الاحتلال والمقاومة هو في الروح، وهو الذي يرتب نتائج معاكسة لموازين الإمكانات، يبدو الفارق بين كلام السيد نصرالله والحملات المنظمة ضده، هو في أن كلام السيد يقدم خطاباً إعلاميّاً تفتقده الحملات التي تستهدف خطابه، ونبدأ بالخطاب الأخير، أعلن السيد قبوله والتزامه بتعهّده السابق لجهة تسهيل حكومة اختصاصيين معلناً تفضيله حكومة تكنوسياسيّة أو حكومة سياسيّة، فقامت حملة ترى في كلامه تخلياً عن المبادرة الفرنسيّة، وتراجعاً تمهيداً للتعطيل، ونسي أصحاب الحملة ان يصيغوا خطاباً يجيب عن حقيقة أن الحكومة التي نصّت عليها المبادرة الفرنسيّة قامت على حكومة من غير السياسيين رئيساً وأعضاء، وأن هذه المبادرة تحورت إلى تكنوسياسيّة عندما صار رئيسها سياسياً ومن الصف الأول، وكل دعوة السيد تقوم على مواءمة تركيبة الحكومة مع هوية رئيسها، من دون جعل ذلك شرطاً. فهل هذا تعطيل ام تسهيل، أن يقول السيد رغم ان الحكومة صارت تكنوسياسية بشخص رئيسها فنحن لا نمانع ببقاء أعضائها من غير السياسيين ولا نعتبر ذلك ضرباً للمبادرة الفرنسيّة وتخلياً عن حكومة الاختصاصيين ونقترح توازناً يتيح شراكة سياسية أوسع تحمي الحكومة، لا تنحصر برئيسها فقط، لكننا لا نضع ذلك شرطاً مساهمة في تسهيل الحكومة.

في الماضي قال السيد إن داعش موجودة في عرسال، فقامت القيامة كما اليوم، وخرج وزير الدفاع يومها فايز غصن يتحدّث عن تقارير أمنية يؤكد ذلك، فنالته سهام الاتهام، وطبعاً قالت الأحداث بعدها إن كل الحملات كانت متواطئة مع وجود داعش ضمن رهانات ضيقة الأفق. واليوم عندما يحذّر السيد من حرب أهلية ويخرج وزير الداخلية ويقول إن هناك تقارير تؤكد وجود مخططات إسرائيليّة لتعميم الفوضى وإشعال حرب أهلية، يتذاكى البعض فيتهم السيد بالسعي للحرب الأهليّة، وهو نفسه يتهم الحزب بالسيطرة على مفاصل القرار في البلد، والاتهامان لا يستقيمان، بحيث يفرط حزب ممسك بالبلد بإنجازه بالذهاب الى حرب أهلية، وبالتوازي يخرج اتهام الحزب بالسيطرة على الدولة، وفي الدولة جيش يقولون عنه إنه جزيرة خارج سيطرة الحزب يدعمونها، وأجهزة أمنية تتباهى السفارات الغربية برعايتها والتعاون معها، ومصرف لبنان الذي قيل عنه خط دولي أحمر، وهو الممسك بالوضعين المالي والنقدي، وكلها خارج سيطرة الحزب، وبجانبها قضاء يُفرج عن العملاء، فأين تقع جزيرة نفوذ حزب الله في الدولة؟

بعض الحملات ارتكز على اللغة التي خاطب من خلالها السيد نصرالله، المعنيين في حالتي الارتفاع غير المبرّر في سعر الصرف، وقطع الطرقات، وحاول البناء عليها استنتاجات من نوع التصرف بلغة الحاكم مرة وبلغة التهديد مرة، والتدقيق في كلام السيد نصرالله يوصل لنتيجتين، الأولى أنه في شأن قطع الطرقات شرح وأوضح أنها ليست جزءاً من أي عمل ديمقراطي وان مظلة الحماية التي جيب توفيرها لكل احتجاج لا تطالها، وأنها عمل تخريبي وتحضيري للحرب الأهلية وإثارة الفتن الطائفية، ليصل الى مطالبة القوى الأمنية والعسكرية بمعاملتها على هذا الأساس، ولم نسمع أحداً من الوزراء او المراجع الأمنية يقول إن قطع الطرقات تعبير ديمقراطي سلمي، ما يطرح سؤالاً عن كيفية التصرف مع هذا الخطر إذا لم تقم القوى الأمنيّة بواجبها، بغير التعبير عن الغضب، وإعلان الاستعداد لتحمل المسؤوليّة، لمنع شرارة فتنة وليس سعياً لفتنة، ومن يريد الفتنة يشجع استمرار الاحتقان الناتج عن قطع الطرقات بدلاً من أن يحذّر منه، ومن لا يريدها هو من يحذّر وبالتالي فإن تصرّفه سيكون محكوماً بتفادي الوقوع في الفتنة، ومثله موضوع سعر الصرف الذي جنّ جنون الناس بسببه، فهل يعتبر التحذير من خطورته تجاوزاً؟ وهل تحميل مصرف لبنان وحاكمه المسؤوليّة تجاوز للأصول، أم ترك الناس تقتحم المصرف والمصارف هو الالتزام بالأصول؟

هناك حملات وليست حملة، لكن ليس هناك خطاب إعلاميّ، ولذلك تتحول الحملات الى مجرد صخب وضجيج وصراخ، لكنها في النهاية زبد، والزبد يذهب جفاء وما ينفع الناس يمكث في الأرض.

عندما يقول السيّد كلمته !

د. عدنان منصور

يتوقف المرء ملياً في كلّ مرة يطلّ فيها الأمين العام لحزب الله السيّد حسن نصر الله، لتناول حدث ما في مناسبة من المناسبات. قد يختلف البعض مع السيّد في النظرة للأمور، وطرق العلاج للمسائل الشائكة التي يشهدها البلد أو المنطقة أو العالم، فهذا رأيه، إلا أنه لا يمكن لأيّ عاقل يتصف بالقليل من الحكمة والرصانة بالموضوعية والعقلانية، وببعد النظر، وهو يتابع السيّد عن قرب إلا أن يتوقف أمام حقائق لا يمكن تجاهلها، أو التحامل عليها نتيجة أحقاد البعض من هنا، أو كراهية البعض الآخر من هناك، أو بسبب مصالح فردية ومنافع ومكتسبات وامتيازات لفئة أو أفراد، أو جماعات استحكمت عقولها وتفكيرها وسلوكها الأهواء الطائفية، والنزعات الأصولية والمذهبية، والمناطقية المتطرفة.

تستمع الى السيّد بعقلك وروحك المتحرّر، فتجد فيه المسؤول الرفيع، والمقاوم الشهم، والزاهد المؤمن، ورجل الدولة الرفيع، والصادق الشريف، في زمن كثر فيه المنافقون والدجّالون، والمشعوذون، والمنحرفون، والمأجورون، والمرتمون في أحضان الخيانة والعمالة، والملوِّثون أياديهم بالمال الحرام ودماء المسحوقين. هو السيّد يا سادة، والد الشهيد، ورفيق الشهداء وحاضن الأحرار، هو التقي النقي، الذي يضع النقاط على الحروف بعقل متميّز ووجدان عالٍ وضمير حيّ قلّ نظيره، لا يبغي من ورائه مغنماً أو مكسباً، أو ربحاً، أو جاهاً أو منصباً، أو مالاً، أو زعامة كما يفعل تجار السياسة وبائعو الأوطان، ومذلّو الشعوب.

هو السيّد المؤمن بحق، والمدافع بحق، والمقاوم بحق، والرافض للظلم والفساد بحق، والناقم على حيتان الطبقة الفاجرة بحق، والمناهض بكلّ قوة للصوص المال وناهبي ثروات الشعب، والمطالِب بملاحقتهم ومحاكمتهم بحق.

لماذا يختزن البعض هذا الحقد الدفين وهذه الكراهية الشديدة، وهذا التعصّب الأعمى تجاه السيّد! ألأنكم أدمنتم على الفساد، أم لأنكم تكرهون الله وتكرهون الوطن وتكرهون أنفسكم، وتكرهون بناء الدولة القادرة المقتدرة، العادلة المقاومة لكلّ ظلم وعدوان وإرهاب! لماذا يكره البعض وجود مقاومة في بلد مهدّد دائماً من قوى الهيمنة والاحتلال! لماذا يشذّ البعض عن التمسك بكرامة وطنه وشعبه أسوة بالشعوب التي تحافظ على كرامتها ومقاومتها وعزّتها! هل عداء البعض من الطغمة السياسية الفاسدة للسيد، تأتي نتيجة فضحه لهم ومطالبته لهم بالإصلاح، وكشف عوراتهم السياسة والأخلاقية، وسلوكهم الإداري والوظيفي والمهني، وهذا ما يزعجهم، ويزعج حلفاءهم من الفاسدين الناهبين والسارقين للمال العام والخاص! لماذا يزعجكم ويضيق صدركم بمنطق السيّد وهو يطرح أمامكم كلّ الحلول العملية الواقعية، العادلة، وأنتم ترفضونها، لكونها تتعارض كلياً مع صفقاتكم، وأهدافكم، ونهجكم المقيت في السياسة والإدارة والحكم؟ هل سمعتم السيّد يدافع يوماً عن اللصوص الفاسدين تجار الهيكل! هل سمعتم مرة السيّد، يشيد بطائفة دون أخرى، او يسيء إلى فئة ويتبنّى أخرى! هل قال كلمته مرة، وخرجت عن الأصول واللياقات، والأخلاق، والتقاليد، والأعراف، والشعور الأخويّ والحسّ الوطني، والايمان الحقيقي بالله والشعب وكلّ الأحرار! هل وجدتم السيّد يوماً يستفزكم وهو يسكن قصراً، ويعيش ترف الدنيا وغرورها، كما يفعل الآخرون!

نعم السيّد بنظركم، وببصيرتكم العمياء مذنب! ألأنه حرّر الأرض من المحتلّ «الإسرائيلي»، وحرّر مناطق لبنانية من قوى الإرهاب الداعشيّة، وحافظ على وجود وكرامة كلّ الطوائف فيها، أم لأنه قدّم عشرات الشهداء من أجل حماية لبنان وشعبه ودرء الخطر عنه. نعم! السيّد مذنب

يا عمي البصيرة لأنه حافظ على أرض وطنكم وكرامة بلدكم وعزة شعبكم، ولم يلتفت إلى مصالحه الشخصية كما فعلتم، وتفعلون، ولم يغط عيوبكم وفجوركم ونهبكم كما تبتغون وتريدون !

السيّد مذنب، لأنه لم يركع لمحتلّ، ولم يستجدِ قوى التسلط والاستبداد، ولم يخضع لقراصنة العالم، ولم يقبل بالمساومة على حقوق شعبه وأمته، ولا بالابتزاز الرخيص، والعمالة المدفوعة الأجر.

فقليلاً من المنطق والحياء، والصدقية يا تجار الأوطان، وأنتم تتعاطون مع هامات مؤمنة تظلّ تسطع على جبين الوطن، وتبقى بينكم الأشرف والأصدق والأتقى والأعلم، والأنزه، والأنظف…

فإنْ كنتم تدمنون على المعارضة من أجل المعارضة، فعارضوا، وهذا شأنكم. وهي مسؤوليتكم أمام الشعب وأمام الديان، لكن عارضوا بشرف، ولا بحقد مسبق، ومنطق أعوج، بعيداً جداً، عن الإباء والكرامة! عارضوا لكن لا تعارضوا رهبة أو رغبة أو عبودية، وما أكثر العبيد وتجار الأوطان في زمن فقد فيه العملاء والخونة كلّ القيم ومقومات الأخلاق، والتحقوا بقطار الخنوع والذلّ والتبعية.

إنه السيّد، يا سادة، في زمن كثر فيه المنافقون، وقلّ فيه الرجال. عارضوا متى شئتم عارضوا، لكن لا تتحاملوا ولا تظلموا، ولا تحملوا سيوفكم المسمومة يميناً وشمالاً، فأنتم لستم أهلاً لها، وكونوا من الرجال ولا من أشباه الرجال، فبعدها لكلّ حادث حديث…

*وزير الخارجيّة والمغتربين الأسبق

نصرالله: ماذا لو فشلت مساعي الحلول؟

ناصر قنديل

فتح الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله الباب واسعاً لنجاح مساعي ولادة حكومة جديدة من اختصاصيين غير حزبيين ومن دون ثلث معطّل، وفقاً لرؤية الرئيس المكلف سعد الحريري، رغم الشرح الذي قدّمه حول أسباب الأزمة وحجم الأعباء التي يفرضها الحلّ الإنقاذيّ واستحالة أن تقوم به حكومة غير سياسيّة، لكن الأهم في كلمة السيد نصرالله يبقى في بدء شرحه للخطة “ب” وملامح الخطة “ج”، ماذا لو لم تنجح مساعي تأليف الحكومة الجديدة، وماذا لو استعصى التفاهم على حل دستوريّ راهن لقضية استعصاء التأليف، سواء عبر وضع مهلة للتأليف أو ربط البت بالثقة بالحكومة الجديدة إذا رفض رئيس الجمهورية صيغة الرئيس المكلف، عبر إرسالها إلى مجلس النواب والتصويت عليها بأغلبية الثلثين، وكلها حلول تتوقف على حجم من الوفاق السياسي يشمل كل القوى السياسية من حلفاء حزب الله والشركاء وصولاً للخصوم؟

يجيب السيد نصرالله على السؤال بعرض الخطة “ب”، وتقوم على تفعيل حكومة تصريف الأعمال، بكامل معاني التفعيل، والاجتهادات الدستوريّة واضحة لجهة إمكانية عقد اجتماعات لحكومة مستقيلة، خصوصاً في زمن الأزمات الكبرى، وأكثر من ذلك يقول الوزير السابق الدكتور بهيج طبارة أن حدود تصريف الأعمال هي حدود القرارات اللازمة لمواجهة هذه الأزمات، وهذا يعني أن بمستطاع الحكومة المستقيلة ليس أن تجتمع فقط، بل أن تقوم بإقالة موظفين وتعيين موظفين، من الفئة الأولى وغيرها، وإعلان حالة الطوارئ، وعقد اتفاقات مالية داخلية وخارجية، ورسم خطط إنقاذ لمواجهة أي خطر لا يمكن إرجاء مواجهته، وكلفة الزمن في التعامل معه تصل حد التسبب بكارثة.

الدعوة لحكومة تصريف الأعمال تتضمّن دعوتها للتعامل مع أربعة ملفات حيوية، الأول إصدار الأوامر للجيش والقوى الأمنية بفتح الطرقات، والثاني التعامل مع حاكم مصرف لبنان بصفته مسؤولاً عن ضبط أسعار الصرف، وحماية النقد الوطني وودائع اللبنانيين، وصولاً إلى إقالته وتعيين بديل عنه إذا اقتضى الأمر، والثالث اعتماد آلية تتيح الإفادة من العرض الإيراني لتأمين الفيول اللازم لكهرباء لبنان، والمشتقات النفطية التي تحتاجها الأسواق، مقابل سداد قيمتها بالليرة اللبنانية وبأسعار تشجيعيّة، والآلية قد تكون فتح باب استيراد الفيول والمشتقات النفطية أمام الشركات اللبنانية من دون المرور بوزارة الطاقة، إذا طابقت المواصفات وسدّدت الرسوم وأمنت أسعاراً منافسة بالليرة اللبنانية، بمعزل عن هوية المصدر على أن تتحمل هذه الشركات تبعات اختيارها للمصدر، أما الملف الرابع فهو ملف التفاوض مع صندوق النقد الدولي وفقاً لأرقام الخطة الحكومية الأصلية، وتوزيعها للخسائر على مصرف لبنان والمصارف، سعياً لاتفاق يلائم المصلحة اللبنانية.

يفترض السيد نصرالله أن هذا الحل الذي تقوم عليه الخطة “ب” يحتاج إلى توافق الحلفاء فقط، وهم المشاركون في حكومة تصريف الأعمال، قد لا يبصر النور هو الآخر. فما هو العمل؟ يجيب السيد أن هناك خطة “ج”، تتضمّن حلاً سيضطر الى سلوكه كخيار لفتح الطرقات، وحلاً آخر لعدم ترك الناس للجوع والبلد للانهيار إذا لم تقم الدولة بما عليها كدولة، وبين السطور نقرأ، أنه سيطلق للناس حق الغضب على إغلاق الطرقات، إذا لم تتحمّل الدولة مسؤوليّتها، وأنه سيفتح الباب لاستيراد المشتقات النفطية والأدوية والمواد الغذائية وتأمينها إلى الأسواق لكل اللبنانيين، من دون المرور بالدولة ومؤسساتها إذا وقعت الواقعة وصار الجوع والانهيار تحدّياً داهماً.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Won’t Let Lebanese People Starve

Marwa Haidar

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah offered on Thursday a number of suggestions that can be considered a roadmap to the current political and economic crisis in Lebanon.

In a televised address on the occasion of Hezbollah’s Wounded Fighter Day, Sayyed Nasrallah vowed that the Resistance party won’t abandon its people and will defend them against starvation.

He stressed that the priority in this regard is for the state to solve the current crisis, but noted that if the state fails to deal with the crisis, Hezbollah won’t keep away and will stand by the Lebanese people.

Highlighting importance of defining the nature of the economic and financial crisis in Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the situation is a result of long years and can’t be solved in one or two years.

His eminence stressed that the first step to deal with the crisis is to form the new government. In this regard, he called on PM-Designate Saad Hariri to review his plan in forming a technocrat government, noting that the situation in Lebanon needs a techno-political government that is capable of taking national decisions.

Sayyed Nasrallah warned that foreign powers through their embassies in Lebanon have been plotting to drive Lebanon into a civil war, stressing that such scenario is a red line according to Hezbollah.

The Resistance leader also slammed those who have been blocking roads in the country, calling on the Lebanese Army to assume its responsibility in preventing such acts that destabilize Lebanon.

Hezbollah’s Wounded Fighter Day

Starting his speech by talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah said that Hezbollah chose the birth anniversary of Al-Abbas (a.s.) on the fourth of Shaaban holy month to mark the Wounded Fighter Day since this figure represents all of loyalty, devotion and courage.

“Al-Abbas (a.s.) insisted to stay and fight beside his brother Imam Hussein (a.s.) despite major injuries that he sustained during the battle of Karbala.”

His eminence praised Hezbollah wounded fighters, likening them to Al-Abbas (a.s.).

“Just like Al-Abbas (a.s), Hezbollah wounded fighters insisted to stay on path of Jihad despite their injuries and all forms of difficulties.”

Sayyed Nasrallah, meanwhile, pointed to the US ties with Takfiri groups like ISIL and Al-Qaeda.

“Day after another, the reality of Takfiri groups is revealed, as well as the identity of their operators and those who back them. I think it is important to be aware of a report on a request by former CIA chief (George Tenet) to ex-president Ali Abdallah Saleh to release Al-Qaeda member in Yemen.”

“We are not before an Islamic group, but rather we are before a Takfiri terrorist group that is formed, operated and backed by the US intelligence service in a bid to destroy our people and our armies.”

Chaos and Civil War

Shifting to the local issue in Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the crisis has political and economic aspects, noting that it can also be described as a crisis of the establishment.

“In light of the rage over the dire economic situation we don’t have to forget that we must act responsibly and wisely,” his eminence said, stressing that the chaos taking place in Lebanon is aimed at driving the country in to a civil war.

Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that foreign powers have been plotting to create chaos aimed at diring the country into a civil war, stressing that such scenario is a red line for Hezbollah.

“We have reliable information that foreign powers, through their embassies in Lebanon have been working to sue sedition and create chaos in a bid to make Lebanese people go for internal fighting. A civil war is a red line for Hezbollah.”

Sayyed Nasrallah hit back at those who say that Hezbollah is the only Lebanese party that has weapons.

“Such rhetoric is baseless, for the civil war can be erupted by light arms. Those who fight can use Kalashnikovs in a civil war, they don’t need long-range rockets and precision missiles in such kind of fighting.”

In this regard, Sayyed Nasrallah said it clear: “Hezbollah has no intention to resort to his weapons in a bid to form a government or to deal with the economic and financial crisis.”

Lebanese Government Formation

Talking about the reasons behind the economic crisis in Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that it is deep rooted and a result of long years.

“The main reasons behind the current crisis are the corruption, loans which have been with high interest rate, money laundering, freezing of deposits, Beirut Port blast and many others causes.”

“The current crisis is result of long years of wrong policies and can’t be solved in one or two years.”

Sayyed Nasrallah said there have been fears in Lebanon to allow China, Russia or Iran to invest in Lebanon, noting that the US has been preventing the country from heading towards these countries.

“Even more, the US has been also blockading Lebanon in a bid to force our country to subdue to their conditions. The US wants Lebanon to starve and I said it clear before: we won’t starve!”

On the issue of government formation, Sayyed Nasrallah said Hezbollah had agreed on what Hariri called a technocrat government. Meanwhile, the Hezbollah S.G. advised Hariri to form a techno-political government warning that the government of specialists would be unable to take political and national decisions like clinching deals with Russia, China or Iran.

“We in Hezbollah announced that we don’t reject forming a government of specialists. However, my advice is to form a techno-political government that will be capable of taking national decisions.”

Sayyed Nasrallah meanwhile, called on the outgoing government, which resigned following Beirut Port blast last August to assume its responsibility in case the formation of the new government is delayed.

“We wait till Monday and see the meeting between Hariri and President (Mishel) Aoun. But if the government formation is delayed again, caretaker PM Hassan Diab and his government must assume responsibility and deal with the current crises facing the country.”

BDL Governor and Blocking Roads

Elsewhere in his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the Riad Salameh, Governor of Banque Du Liban (BDL)- the country’s central bank- bears responsibility in failing to defend the national currency from falling in exchange for the US dollar.

“You can prevent the collapse of the Lebanese pound. Your presence in such post is to do this task. What’s going on is not acceptable, and you have to assume your responsibility,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed Salameh.

His eminence, meanwhile, lashed out at bandits who have been in the latest weeks cutting off roads across the country, stressing that such acts don’t solve the crisis, but rather they complicate it and drive Lebanon into civil war.

“Blocking roads is unacceptable and immoral. I am one of the people who are fed up with such behavior.”

“You are suspicious and contributing to a scheme aimed at driving Lebanon into a civil war,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, addressing those who have been blocking roads.

“It’s the Lebanese Army’s duty to prevent such acts, and if the bandits don’t refrain from blocking roads then this discussion is to be continued,” Sayyed Nasrallah said in a clear message that Hezbollah won’t keep mum regarding this issue.

Hezbollah Plan of Social Solidarity

Hitting at those who slam Hezbollah environment for gaining salaries in US dollars, Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that 80% of Hezbollah’s incubation are volunteer people who are not paid.

He also noted that not all the organized members of Hezbollah are paid in US dollars.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah called on Hezbollah servicemen who are paid in US dollars to help all those who are in need, announcing a plan to organize such aids.

“A few years ago, those people who are slamming now our brothers and sisters, they were mocking at Hezbollah fighters who were monthly paid $400 or $500.”

Sayyed Nasrallah concluded his speech by assuring that Hezbollah won’t abandon its people and won’t let Lebanese people starve.

“The priority to solve the current crises is through Lebanese state, but if the state fails to do so we won’t stay away. I will not elaborate on this issue, but I say: we have several options in this regard.”

الانحطاط الاستخباريّ الإسرائيليّ:
من تقرير فينوغراد إلى تقرير أمان

ناصر قنديل

فضلنا أن ننتظر نشر النص الكامل لما عُرف بالتقرير السريّ لوكالة «أمان» الاستخباريّة عن شخصية الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله، قبل أن نعلق أو نحلل ونفهم التقرير وإيحاءاته ووظيفته، وما يعكسه من مستوى تماسك أو ارتباك، قدرة على امتلاك مجسّات الإنذار المبكر، أم وقوع في البروباغندا المبتذلة، نجاح في فك شيفرة حزب الله وقائده، أم تغميس خارج الصحن لزوم تعزية الذات المهزومة، توصيف يحاكي ما يمثله العدو الأول للكيان بمقدار من معايير العلم، أم شعوذة تعبّر عن انحطاط مستوى التقييم الاستراتيجي ما يعني أبرز مؤشرات أفول الدول القائمة على القوة، خصوصاً أن التقرير هو الأول من نوعه عملياً، وهو من صناعة المؤسسة النخبوية الصانعة لمعطيات صناعة القرار الاستراتيجي في كيان الاحتلال، التي تتقدّم أمان صفوفها الأولى، وفي أجهزة استخبارات الدول التي تشكل الحروب مكوناً عضوياً من مكانتها، وتشكل الاستخبارات عصب المعطيات والمقدمات التي تبني عليها قراراتها، ومنها كيان الاحتلال، ثمة وحدات متخصصة برصد شخصيات «العالم الآخر»، سواء الأعداء أو الحلفاء، ويصل بعضها إلى بناء نماذج محاكاة تتمثل الشخصية المعنية وتحاول تلبّس قيمها ومفاهيمها وردّات فعلها، يتم اعتمادها للتنبؤ بمواقف هذه الشخصيات، بمثل ما قيل عن شخصيات كانت تلعب دور جمال عبد الناصر وياسر عرفات وحافظ الأسد، وشخصيات بريجنيف وأندروبوف، وكاسترو في دوائر الاستخبارات الإسرائيلية.

ليست القضية في المعلومات التي تمّ نشرها في التقرير، والتي يعرف أبسط الناس أنها دون مستوى الحديث عن ملف سري أو عمل استخباريّ، في الصحيح منها، وهو علني ومعلوم للعامة، أو أنّها جزء من حملة إساءة متعمّدة بتسويق صفات وخصال يعرف كل متابع أنها بعيدة كل البُعد عن شخصية السيد نصرالله، القضية تكمن أولاً وأخيراً في درجة الجدية التي يظهرها التقرير لفهم الخصم الأول، وسبر غور شخصية القائد الذي يعترف قادة كيان الاحتلال أنه مصدر القلق الوجودي لكيانهم، وليس المعيار هو النجاح أو الفشل، بمقدار ما هو الجدية، والاستناد إلى درجة من المقاربة الموضوعية العلمية التي يجب ان يتحلى بها العدو عندما يحلل نقاط قوة ونقاط ضعف عدوه. فعندما نقرأ تقرير فينوغراد الذي أعدّته لجنة التحقيق الخاصة بحرب تموز 2006، نقع على هذه الجدية وهذه المحاولة لمقاربة الوقائع بعيداً عن روح تزيين الهزيمة وتحويلها الى نصر، أو تهوين العدو والاستخفاف بمقدراته وإنجازاته، فقيمة تقرير فينوغراد تكمن في أنه أظهر أن الكيان الذي أصيب بفشل استراتيجي كبير في الحرب التي فشل بتحقيق أهدافها، لا يزال قادراً على التصرف بمعايير «الدولة»، أي فصل التقييم عن الموقف، وامتلاك مساحة للقراءة تحتكم لمعايير على درجة من محاكاة الوقائع بعيداً عن «النرجسية»، التي تختصرها معادلة إخضاع الوقائع للتمنيات والرغبات، وتجاهل الحقائق لخدمة السياسات.

بمعزل عن أي قراءة في المعلومات والتحليلات التي تضمّنها تقرير أمان حول السيد نصرالله، ستقدّم لأصحابها خدمة مجانيّة في النفي والتأكيد، تقول سيرة المواجهة بين الكيان وحزب الله، وفقاً للرواية الإسرائيلية الصادرة عن أعلى المستويات السياسية والعسكرية في مؤسساته، أن حرب عام 2006، التي يصنفها التقرير كنقطة صدمة في مسيرة حزب الله، هي نقطة التحوّل إلى قوة استراتيجية عظمى، بينما هي بداية عدّ تنازلي للقيمة الاستراتيجية للكيان وقدرته على شنّ الحروب. والمعيار هنا ليس بالرغبات بل بالوقائع، هل شكل القرار 1701 مدخلاً لإضعاف حزب الله كمصدر لقلق جيش الاحتلال على الحدود اللبنانية، كما قال قادة الكيان في تسويقه، أم أنه شكّل إطاراً لتعاظم مقدرات حزب الله كتهديد جدّي ووجوديّ للكيان. وهل شكلت الحرب في سورية سبباً لإغراق حزب الله في حرب استنزاف، كما راهن قادة الكيان، أم تحوّلت الى فرصة لتعملق حضوره الإقليميّ ومصدر شراكته في انتصارات كبرى، وامتلاكه خبرات استثنائية وتحالفات عابرة للمنطقة وما وراءها، كما تعترف تقارير المؤسسات الإسرائيلية واعترافات قادته؟ وهل ظهر حزب الله منذ حرب 2006 صاحب خطة لبناء المزيد من عناصر القوة التي تجعله أقرب لرفع درجة التهديد لأمن الكيان، بينما ظهر الكيان يراوح مكانه في السعي لردم الفجوة التي ظهرت بينه وبين الحزب في حرب تموز 2006 والآخذة في الاتساع لصالح الحزب، مع فشل سياسات ترميم قدرة الدرع، سواء على صعيد الجبهة الداخلية، أو على صعيد القوات البرية، أو على صعيد القبة الحديديّة؟ وماذا عن قطع حزب الله لأربع مراحل إضافية من التهديد بعد تموز 2006 يعترف بها كل قادة الكيان، القدرة على الدخول الى الجليل، الانتقال من صواريخ محدودة المدى والقدرة التدميريّة الى صواريخ ثقيلة بعيدة المدى، وثالثا الانتقال الى عهد الصواريخ الدقيقة، وأخيراً هل نجح حزب الله بالانتقال من حرب الجبهة الواحدة الى حرب الجيهات المفتوحة عبر تأسيس محور المقاومة الممتدّ بين لبنان وفلسطين وسورية والعراق وإيران وصولاً إلى اليمن؟

يأتي تقرير أمان في غربة عن الواقع أمام حجم التحديات والتحولات التي تمثلها لصالح حزب الله وقائده، ليخبرنا عن شخصية مأزومة بعد صدمة 2006، متردّدة، نرجسيّة، وهو ما يصحّ فعلاً في حال الكيان وليس أفراد قياداته، بل روحه الجماعيّة، التي تبدو قد دخلت آخر مراحل الانحطاط التي تسبق عادة الأفول، عندما تعيش حالة اغتراب ومفارقة وانفصام تجعلها تزين الواقع لتعزي نفسها المأزومة والمهزومة، بعدما فشلت في تغييره، ويكفي كمثال أن نتذكر ونذكر، أن السيد نصرالله الذي يقول التقرير إنه خفّض لهجة تهديداته وصار يشترطها بشنّ حرب إسرائيليّة ويحصرها بحال الردّ على هذه الحرب، لم يغادر هذه المعادلة يوماً، ولم يتحدّث يوماً عن حرب يبادر اليها، بينما مَن فعل العكس هو الكيان، الذي كان يتحدث دائماً عن حرب استباقية تؤكد قدرة الدرع، ثم حرب استباقية ترمم هذه القدرة، وصار اليوم يتحدث بلسان كل قادته عن قدرته التدميريّة في أي حرب مقبلة يشنّها حزب الله، وحزب الله لم يقل يوماً إنه سيشنّ حرباً. وذروة الانحطاط في حال الدول والكيانات قبل الأفول، عندما تزيّف الحقائق لترضي غرورها وتطمئن ولو كان التهديد وراء الباب يقترب، وتصير القراءات التي يفترض أن تستند الى العلم مجرد ادوات لبروباغندا قائمة على الأكاذيب والتلفيقات.

السؤال الذي يطرحه التقرير، ماذا لو فعل حزب الله الشيء نفسه، أي قرأ كيان الاحتلال بالعيون الزائفة التي يظهرها التقرير في القراءة الإسرائيليّة؟ فالحزب يبني قوته بالتوازي مع الحفاظ على قراءة موضوعيّة لمصادر قوة الكيان، وسعي لاستكشاف نقاط الضعف، لبناء خططه على العلم، والعلم وحده. وهذه المفارقة التي تبدأ مع انتقال الكيان من مرحلة فينوغراد الى مرحلة أمان، تفتح سياقاً جديداً للتعبير عن تفوّق حزب الله، الذي بدأ أساساً كتفوق أخلاقي، في القضية والبنية والعقيدة والسياسة والقيادة، وفي آلية الأداء وقراءة العدو وفهمه. وهذا التفوّق ينمو كما تنمو فجوة القوة، ويستمر كما تستمر.

فضيحة صحافة واستخبارات في «إسرائيل»: أهوَ عقل «أمان» أم عقل نصر الله؟

الأخبار

ابراهيم الأمين

السبت 13 آذار 2021

أتابع الإعلام الإسرائيلي منذ تسعينيّات القرن الماضي. كنّا نحصل على صحف العدوّ من خلال بريد خاص في قبرص. صديق لديه اشتراك في صحف «إسرائيل» يرسلها مع صديق يعمل في شركة طيران الشرق الأوسط، وينتظرها زميل تعلّم العبريّة عن بُعد. قبل أن يصل إلى بيروت مترجمون عاشوا في السجون الإسرائيلية، ثم انطلق عالم الإنترنت في بلادنا، وكانت «إسرائيل» سبّاقة، ما أفادنا في الحصول على كلّ دوريّاتها، سواء الصحافية أو نشرات دراسية أو خلافه. ولطالما تميّز الكثير من الصحافيّين والكتّاب في «إسرائيل» بمعرفة واسعة، والأهم، بدرجة عالية من الاستقلالية، برغم مقصّ الرقابة العسكريّة الصارم. وكان الأفضل في تلك الفئة من الإعلاميين الإسرائيليين، عدم الانجرار الى البروباغندا الرديئة، حتى لو اقتضت المصلحة العليا لبلادهم ذلك.

مفاجأة أمس، ليست سوى إشارة إضافية الى تدهور يحصل في «إسرائيل» على مستويات كثيرة، من بينها الصحافة نفسها. لا أعرف كيف قبلت إدارة التحرير في صحيفة «يديعوت أحرونوت» تلقّي هذه الإهانة المهنية ووافقت على إنتاج مادة كان يمكن لطالب في كلية الإعلام أن يعدّ ما هو أفضل منها لو طلب منه أستاذه إعداد بحث موجز عن شخصية عدو إسرائيل الأبرز، أي السيّد حسن نصر الله.
على مدى أيام، روّجت الدعاية الإسرائيلية لحدث صحافي سينشر يوم الجمعة (أمس) ويتعلّق بكشف شعبة «أمان» (الاستخبارات العسكرية في جيش العدوّ) معلومات مصنّفة تتعلق بالسيّد نصر الله. وتم أمس نشر التقرير المفصّل تحت عنوان «الملفّ السرّي لنصر الله، في أمان». ومع أن الموجز الذي سرّب في الأيام الماضية لم يكن يحمل عناوين مغرية، إلا أن الصدمة كانت في التقرير نفسه الذي كان من الأفضل نشره في موقع «ديبكا» وبقلم رئيس تحريره المشهور بنقص صدقيّته، غيورا شاميس، وليس عبر كاتبين مخضرمين وبارزين مثل يوسي يهوشع ورؤوفين فايس.

من المفيد الإشارة أولاً، إلى أن التقرير يستند إلى مقابلات مع عاملين في «أمان»، وهي أكبر الأجهزة الاستخبارية الإسرائيلية وأكثرها كلفةً من حيث الموازنة. ويتركّز نشاطها حول جمع وتحليل المعلومات العسكرية من خلال المصادر المختلفة، وتتولّى مهمة تشخيص الإنذار المبكر ضد الحرب والأنشطة العسكرية المعادية بشكل عام. إضافة إلى أنها مكلّفة بإعداد التقدير الاستخباري الاستراتيجي لوضعه أمام صانعي القرار في «إسرائيل». ولذلك يجري وصف «أمان» بأنه جهاز «التقدير القومي» لدى العدوّ، ولأوراقه دور بارز في صياغة سياسات تل أبيب تجاه الأطراف المعادية. ويشكّل قسم الأبحاث (الذي ينتمي إليه الضبّاط الذين أجروا المقابلة) نواة «أمان»، بوصفه الجهة التي تتجمّع فيها كلّ المواد الاستخبارية الواردة ليقوم بمعالجتها وتحليلها واستخلاص التقديرات اللازمة منها. ومن بين هؤلاء، عناصر من متخرّجي برنامج «حبتسالوت»، وهو البرنامج العَلَم لسلاح الاستخبارات الذي يجمع بين الخدمة الدائمة ودراسات العلوم السياسية وعلوم الشرق الأوسط، بالاندماج مع الأقسام التحليلية الآتية: علوم الكومبيوتر، الرياضيات، الاقتصاد والسياسة. ويتطوّع لاختبار برنامج «حبتسالوت» (تعني بالعربية زهرة الزنبق أو النرجس، سبق أن ذكرت في التوراة وطبعت على عملة الشيكل) نحو 50 متدرباً ومتدربة سنوياً، يتمّ العمل على تأهيلهم لدور ضباط الاستخبارات الرائدين الذين يتعاملون مع القضايا المركزية على جدول الأعمال الوطني والعسكري.

كان من الأفضل نشر التقرير نفسه في موقع «ديبكا» وبقلم رئيس تحريره المشهور بنقص صدقيّته، غيورا شاميس


حقيقةً، يحتار المرء في تقييم الصحافيين الذين نشروا التقرير للذين قدّموا لهم المعلومات. كان عليهم التدقيق فعلياً عمّا إذا كانوا أمام محلّلين وضبّاط جهاز محترف، أم أمام مجموعة هواة يحترفون الرصد الإعلامي. وبداهةً، كما يحلو لهم القول تكراراً، كان على الصحافيين إدراك أن «إسرائيل» في قلب معركة محتدمة وقاسية جداً. وفي هذه الحالة، لا تخسر الاستخبارات معلومات ذات قيمة من دون ضمان نتائج توازي أهمية المعلومة. وهذا ما ظهر في مضمون التقرير الذين يمكن الجزم بأنه «يخلو من أي معلومة ذات طابع استخباري»… لم تقدم لكم «أمان» أي معلومة ذات قيمة استخبارية، وهو أمر بالمناسبة يمكن فهمه لمن يعيش في قلب صراع بهذا الحجم. وحتى لا يتكرر الاستخفاف بكم مرة جديدة، سأروي لكم ماذا يجري من صوبنا نحن. هل تعتقدون مثلاً أن أجهزة الأمن السياسية والعسكرية التابعة للمقاومة، يمكنها أن تتسلّى بما يؤذي احترافيّتها عبر ضخّ معلومات ساذجة وسخيفة في الإعلام بقصد التبجّح؟ كان يفترض بصحافيّي العدوّ المحترفين ألّا يقعوا في هذا الفخ، وأن تتصرّفوا ــــ وإن كان هذا الكلام لا يُسعدكم ــــ بمنطق التماثل. وأنا أفيدكم هنا، بأنه لا يجدر بكم تخيّل أن حزب الله مستعدّ لمنحنا مقابلة مع متخصّصين في رصد قيادات العدو الاستراتيجيين، وتوفير تحليلهم ومعطياتهم لنا… أبداً هذا لن يحصل!

لكن، لنعد قليلاً إلى يوم قبل نشر التقرير، حين جرى حوار في القناة 12 الإسرائيلية حول التقرير. وفيه يسأل المحاور عن الهدف من التقرير، فيأتي الجواب مباشرة ومن دون تحضير على لسان يعقوب أخيمئير، وهو صحافي مخضرم ومقدم برامج سابق في قناة «كان»: التبجّح، التبجّح…

يحاول آفي بنياهو، وهو ناطق باسم الجيش الإسرائيلي سابقاً كبحَه بالردّ: كلا. لكن أخيمئير يكمل حديثه: كل أسبوع هناك مسرح، يقول لنا نجحت ونجحنا وفتحنا ملف نصر الله، كفى، حقاً كفى!
لكن بنياهو يحاول رتق الموقف: من الممكن أننا نريد أن نريه إلى أيّ مدى هو مكشوف، ومن الممكن أن هناك أموراً أخرى مكشوفة، كي يعلم بألّا يتعاطى معنا. كل ذلك عمل استخباري، تخفيض التصنيف الأمني لمعلومات استخبارية من أجل احتياجات عملانية، أفترض أنه يوجد هنا اعتبار من هذا النوع، لم يقم أيّ أحد بأيّ أمر سياسي إن قام طاقم من عناصر الخدمة النظامية في وحدة الأبحاث في أمان..

ومع ذلك يعود أخيمئير ليصدم الحضور: أكره هذا التبجّح كثيراً، بالتأكيد الأسبوع المقبل أيضاً سيكون هناك «انتصرنا» مرة أخرى…
الأمر هنا ليس سباقاً بين من يسجّل النقاط على الآخر. المسألة هنا في التواطؤ السيئ بين الصحافة وأركان المؤسسة العسكرية والأمنية في «إسرائيل» لمواجهة «عجز ما» أو حتى «عقدة نفسية». وهو عجز يتّصل بعدم قدرة العدوّ، ليس على عدم تحمّل تعاظم قوة المقاومة العسكرية وحسب، بل أيضاً على عدم تحمّل الموقع المتقدّم جداً الذي يحتلّه نصر الله في الوعي عند الجمهور الإسرائيلي، وليس حصراً عند أهل القرار في «إسرائيل». ويبدو أن حجم الأضرار والخشية لدى الجمهور الإسرائيلي، هو ما دفع بالقيادة العليا للجوء إلى الاستخبارات العسكرية، من أجل الترويج لبعض المفردات حول شخص السيد نصر الله، وإنْ مع إقرار لا بدّ منه، بصدقيّته وجدّية تهديداته وقدرته على تنفيذها، وتحديداً ما يتّصل باستهداف العمق الإسرائيلي.

ماذا يريدون أن يقولوا لنا؟ هل هي رغبة في ادّعاء المعرفة لدى الاستخبارات العسكرية، الى حدّ الزعم بأنه لم يبق شيء لا تعرفه «إسرائيل»، حتى لو كان في خانة النيّات المبيّتة، ومن دون أن يسأل من يفترض أنه يجري مقابلة: كيف لإسرائيل ألّا تُجهز على قيادة حزب الله دفعة واحدة ومن دون بصمة، طالما هي قادرة على معرفة النيّات في الصدور، وليس حصراً أماكن وجود قادة حزب الله وتدابيرهم…

ماذا يعني أن تخرج المقابلة مع 15 ضابطاً ومتخصّصاً وباحثاً ــــ يعملون ليل نهار لجمع المعلومات عن نصر الله وتحليلها ــــ بهذه المعطيات التي لا تزيد عمّا هو موجود في الإعلام العربي عن حزب الله وأمينه العام وعن عائلته وما يرتبط به، صحيحة كانت أو مختلقة أو محوّرة، وجرى عرضها للجمهور الإسرائيلي في سياقات محدّدة وموجّهة، للإيحاء بالقدرة على تحصيل المعرفة والربط بين الأمور، ومن بينها مقابلة نصر الله مع «الأخبار» عام 2014.

«أمان» تعرف الكثير، غير ما أعطته للصحافيين الإسرائيليين. وحتى لا تخرجوا من المولد بلا حمّص، سأفيدكم بالآتي:
نصر الله لا يعيش تحت الأرض، وهو يسافر خارج لبنان، ويتنقّل بين المدن والقرى وفي الشوارع والأحياء. ولديه فرق متخصّصة في كلّ شيء، وجدول أعمال فيه من جو بايدن إلى مختار ميس الجبل ورئيس المجلس المحلّي في مستوطنة شلومي.. وبالمناسبة، يداه تلامسان الأشجار دوماً!

Sayyed Nasrallah Has Consecrated “Spider Web” Theory in Confrontation with ‘Israel’: Zionist Studies Institute

March 5, 2021

Capture

The Zionist circles continued scrutinizing the recent speech of Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah in which his eminence warned the Israeli officials against waging an all-out war on Lebanon.

Experts at the Zionist Institute for “National Security” Studies considered that Sayyed Nasrallah is determined to maintain the balance of deterrence by striking the Israeli cities in response to any aggression on the Lebanese cities and killing an Israeli soldier whenever ‘Israel’ kills any of Hezbollah fighters.

The experts also indicated that Hezbollah aims at accumulating its military power and focuses on obtaining precision-guided missiles, adding that such capabilities will inflict heavy losses upon the Israeli ‘home front’ during any upcoming war.

The Zionist experts stressed that Sayyed Nasrallah has consecrated the “Spider Web” theory in the confrontation with ‘Israel’, adding that this notion managed to target the collective conscience of the Israelis.

Hezbollah “Will Make Israel See Stars” in Case of Any Attack on Lebanon: Sheikh Qassem

 March 4, 2021

Hezbollah deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem warned that the Resistance movement will make the Zionist occupation ‘see stars’ if it attacks Lebanon.

In an interview with Al-Mayadeen on Wednesday night, Sheikh Qassem said Hezbollah “remains in state of defense, but we will make ‘Israel’ see stars if it attacks” Lebanon.

“Hezbollah clearly declares that it has no intention of starting a war. Israel must understand that the arena is not open to it, and today the battle will be within the Israeli entity.”

On Hezbollah’s retaliation to the killing of one of Hezbollah fighters in Syria last summer, Sheikh Qassem stressed that the equation set by Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah is still in place.

“When they attacked a brother of ours in Syria, we decided that we will respond to this attack, and such decision is still in place,” Hezbollah deputy chief added.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Qassem revealed that the US Embassy in Beirut has contracted two Lebanese media outlets in a bid to tarnish Hezbollah’s image.

“The US Embassy in Beirut is paying much money to these two media outlets in order to publish daily reports on Hezbollah,” Sheikh Qassem told Al-Mayadeen.

On the issue of Beirut Port blast, Sheikh Qassem said the investigation is ongoing and is aimed at trying to determine whether the incident was caused by an act of sabotage, errors or an Israeli attack.

Investigations conducted by the US, France and Germany that were leaked found “mistakes committed, not an intentional criminal act.”

He demanded that the investigations be revealed so that families can receive compensation from insurance companies and stressed that it’s not Hezbollah’s job to announce the results of the investigation, but rather the job of the judiciary and concerned authorities.

In this context, Sheikh Qassem pointed to “a group of Lebanese politicians whose primary job is to link any incident directly to Hezbollah to discredit him.”

Touching upon the issue of forming government, he stressed that the problem lies in disagreements between President Aoun and Designate-PM Saad Hariri, stressing an urgent need to solve this crisis.

In this regard, Sheikh Qassem voiced Hezbollah’s continuous readiness to help solve disagreements between Aoun and Hariri.

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.

Speech by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on January 9, 2021, three days after the Capitol riots.

Speech by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on January 9, 2021, three days after the Capitol riots.

Transcript:

[…] My first comment (concerns the Capitol Hill riot), because it would be unwise to ignore an event of such magnitude, namely the major incident that occurred in recent days in the United States, in Washington. Trump called for a protest in Washington, interrupting his New Year’s Holiday to come to Washington and call for a (big) protest, addressing protesters behind a bulletproof glass the same day, and urging them to march on the Congress, and on the Representatives and Senators assembled nearby to (officially) establish the result of the presidential elections.

Then, during the meeting of Representatives and Senators, the two Houses of Representatives and Senators, the demonstrators invaded the Congress building (the Capitol), in a scene [of a coup or “color revolution”] that the United States have the habit of fomenting in other countries of the world to bring down regimes. But now Trump has implemented it in his own country! This is the very thing they have perpetrated in many countries of the world, and which they have been trying to do for a year and a half in Lebanon! Either way, the protesters walked towards the building, passed through the security gates, and entered (the Capitol). There were a number of deaths, dozens of injured, dozens of arrests, bloody clashes… The Representatives and Senators fled, ending their meeting, hiding (where they could)… Then various measures were taken, and clamors (of condemnation) arose from all sides.

Of course, this is a very important and very dangerous event, which cannot be minimized or considered minor, despite the efforts of some. And its consequences are also (major and) dangerous. In Lebanon and in the Arab world, the darlings (vassals) of the United States have endeavored to downplay the significance of this event, to belittle and underestimate it. But (to know its real scope), it suffices to ask the inhabitants of Mecca, who are the most aware of what is happening at home (Arabic proverb inviting to question those first concerned). Let’s rely on what the people of the United States have said, what Biden said, what his vice-president (Harris) said, what top Democratic Party officials said, within the Republican Party, etc. How did all these people describe this event? What has been the reaction within the Trump administration itself, the resignations etc.? If it were only a minor and marginal incident, under control, it would not have had all of these consequences, which still continue, and can lead to impeachment proceedings against Trump by Congress.

It was not the (intended) topic of my speech, but since this event has occurred, I will say two words about it.

First, this is obviously a (major) event that we must ponder and analyze carefully, and from which we should draw lessons. This event reveals to us the reality of the current (domestic) situation in the United States, and reveals the true face of this (so-called) democracy and its (vain) pretenses. But among the things to stress in this event is that the people of the United States themselves have tasted first-hand the consequences of Trump’s policies, and his willingness to kill even Americans –who he was already killing during the past year during demonstrations [against police brutality and institutional racism]– to stay in power. We have long warned of the dangers of the policies of this assassin, and what Americans and the world have seen is only a small glimpse of what Trump perpetrated over four years in many countries around the world, such as Yemen, Iraq, Syria, the siege imposed on Iran, Venezuela, etc., and his support for Zionist crimes against the Palestinian people. The whole world has remained silent, as have many Americans, in the face of its atrocious crimes against other peoples, in particular its manifest, official and scandalous crime against the two Commanders (who defeated ISIS), Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al- Muhandis. And today, Trump’s criminal truth has been revealed to the eyes of his own people. Trump exemplifies the American political and military arrogance which has long imposed its hegemony on peoples, monopolized their choices and chained their sovereignty.

What has happened in recent days is an example of the sterile and catastrophic nature of this (bogus) American democracy which has no real guarantees, and allows individuals like Trump to come to power. How could an election allow the rise to power of a figure so puffed up with arrogance, so criminal, so mad and so stupid, to rule not only the United States, but the whole world, holding the future of humanity in his hands?! (This experience at least) revealed the true face of this American (pseudo-)democracy that they wanted to impose on the world. And with his allies and accomplices in the Middle East, Trump exemplifies power-hungry tyrants, (ready for anything to cling to power), even at the cost of the blood of their own people. Of course, we must also mention Pompeo, who always urged us to preserve the popular vote, while he and his President did everything possible to impose themselves and alter the outcome of the elections, by force and threats. He was talking to us about the respect due to protesters, and we saw the (unarmed protesters) killed and wounded in the heart of Washington.

I will conclude on this point with two words.

(First, I want to say) that God the Most High and the Exalted has protected the peoples of the world and the whole Earth during these four years (of Trump’s presidency), and we must all pray to Him, invoke Him and intercede with Him so that He continues to preserve us during the days that remain before January 20, because the nuclear codes are still in the hands of this mad, stupid, racist and arrogant character that is Trump, a real tyrant who when he gets angry, he no longer knows what he is doing. May God continue to preserve the world for the few days remaining until January 20.

See Nasrallah: Trump heads for Armageddon

And my last point is this: when I saw Trump’s recorded speech yesterday (it was not broadcast live), and in which he condemned the protesters, those who had engaged in violence, vowing to abide by the law and calling everyone to respect the law, he reminded me of this Quranic verse which says: “They are like Satan when he lures someone to disbelieve. Then after they have done so, he will say ˹on Judgment Day˺, ‘I have absolutely nothing to do with you. I truly fear Allah—the Lord of all worlds.’ ” (Quran, 59, 16).

Up to 4.55 minutes, excerpts from Trump’s speech before the assault on Capitol Hill. From 5.10 minutes, Trump’s repudiation the next day.

It was Trump who organized this demonstration, he is the one who incited them to march on Congress, it is he who sent them there, and when they took the Capitol, he disassociated himself from them, saying he had nothing to do with any of this and was abiding by the law. This is the real face of Trump, the way he behaves with those who support him, let alone his allies.

In conclusion, this is a major event, and the developments underway in the United States are very important and will have consequences domestically but also on the whole world. We must follow all of this closely. […]

Khamenei: the post-American era has begun

Speech by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Sayed Ali Khamenei, February 7, 2021, commemorating the Iranian Air Force’s allegiance to Imam Khomeini.

Imam Khamenei invited those who have unrealistic estimations of US power and that of some other countries to look at recent events in the US. He explained, “The scandalous events that have taken place in the US recently are not minor events, and they should not be considered to be the mere downfall of an incompetent President. Rather, they are a manifestation of the decline of the US reputation, power and social system.”

Referring to statements made by some eminent political personalities in the US, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said, “They themselves state that the social system of the US has deteriorated from within, and some have even spoken of a post-US era.”

His Eminence added, “If something similar to what occurred in the US had occurred in any other part of the world – particularly in countries with which the US is at odds – they would not have stopped covering it in their news, but the mass media empire is in their control. So they try to show that the conflict has finished, but it is far from over.”

The Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces stated that the reason why some regimes that are dependent on the US – in particular, the Zionist regime – are distressed and stunned and the reason for their recent ranting and raving is their fear and anxiety about the reality of the US decline in international and domestic areas.

Stating that one of the ways for increasing a country’s power is to strengthen the Armed Forces in proportion with regional and international events, Imam Khamenei praised recent military maneuvers and said, “Carrying out such great, impressive maneuvers, despite the existence of sanctions, gives us confidence that national security has been ensured by the children of the country who are in the Armed Forces. This is truly a source of pride.”

The occasion also marks the anniversary of late Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi who was martyred, along with his wife and son, when an Israeli airstrike attacked his convoy as he was attending the commemoration anniversary of Sheikh Ragheb Harb on February 16, 1992.

The martyr Sheikh Harb was assassinated by an Israeli agent on February 16, 1984.
