|Reception of a delegation from the "Leadership of the Alliance of the Palestinian Organizations"|
Fadlullah called for re-launching the Resistance and increasing the percentage of the Jewish immigration from occupied Palestine
His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, received a delegation from the "Leadership of the Alliance of the Palestinian Organizations" in Lebanon, headed by Hamas's political affairs official in Lebanon, Ali Barakah. The delegation thanked the Sayyed for his latest Fatwa that deemed normalization with the Israeli enemy as unlawful, and in which he confirmed that no one can concede even the smallest part of the Palestinian lands… They also went through the challenges facing the Palestinian cause, as well as the Israeli- American scheme that aims at putting an end to this cause.
His Eminence noted that the Palestinian cause represents a universal Arab and Islamic responsibility, pointing out that the leaders and religious authorities, be they Muslims or Christians, should bear full responsibility. Moreover, they ought to confront the oppression exercised against the Palestinian people based on their legal and religious obligations and to expose the big conspiracy through which it is meant to approve the usurpation of entire Palestine by the Jewish occupiers.
His Eminence emphasized the necessity of initiating the Islamic- Christian campaign with the participation of the international liberation forces at the media, cultural, and political levels…etc. to support the Palestinian people and work real hard to return the cause to square one. Moreover, the conspiracy that was plotted with wit and spite focused, from the very first, at keeping the Arabs, Muslims, and Palestinians preoccupied with the details and the security and colonial titles…etc. so that they would forget all about the cause and the occupation and deem the Jews innocent from committing big terrorist crimes, as well as from expelling a whole people from its own land!
His Eminence confirmed the necessity of launching the resistance against the enemy, for if we could not liberate Palestine in the foreseeable future, then we should at least make the Israeli presence as unstable as it could be which would increase the percentage of the Jewish immigration from inside occupied Palestine to the outside.
His Eminence also confirmed that we ought to work at all levels to support the Palestinian people and protect their civil rights, especially in Lebanon and the other Arab and Islamic countries. Actually, the international plot aims at persecuting the Palestinian people, as well as exhausting and wearing them out to displace them once more so as to automatically fail the right of return and bring naturalization in the internal Arab arena and the international aspect to the forefront.
His Eminence emphasized the necessity of the unity of all the Palestinian factions and that they should hold open and closed conferences in which they discuss how to confront the political, field, and popular developments that enjoy the support and follow-up of the live forces in the nation.
After the meeting, Ali Barakah issued the following statement:
It was an honor for the "Leadership of the Alliance of the Palestinian Organizations" in Lebanon to visit His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, and we have thanked him and expressed our appreciation for his latest Fatwa in which he deemed the normalization with the enemy as unlawful, and for his supportive and constant positions towards the Resistance and the Palestinian cause. Moreover, we briefed him on the general Palestinian situation, especially in the Lebanese camps, and we talked about the situations in both the Arab and Islamic world. We also asked him to interfere and work on realizing the civil and human rights of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, as well as hastening to build the camp of Nahr Al-Barid. His Eminence promised us to exert more efforts to support the Palestinian people in Lebanon, and confront all the new projects that are schemed to fail the right of return and impose naturalization and displacement on the Palestinian people.
We also assured His Eminence that we are holding fast to the option of struggle and resistance, since it is the strategic option of the Palestinian people.
