Fadlullah: The World should in these days in particular voice its
rejection to the American policy of deceit, and the terrorist acts the
occupation is committing in cold blood, just as it condemns the other
acts of terror practiced by individuals or groups.
Asked in his weekly
seminar the following question:
On the anniversary of 9-11, several observers and pundits are
asking about the military and political means especially the
policy of lies and deceit the US resorted to invade many
countries in the region.
How successful can
such a policy be?
Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, said:
It has become known
in the international political circles that the major
superpowers especially the US depend largely on their
intelligence agencies to implement their policies.
The role of such
agencies has cased to be merely gathering information; they now
fabricate lies and present them to the media as facts so as to
create an international impression of a need for change. This is
how several regimes have fallen and were replaced by others that
work for the CIA.
Yet, things took an
additional dimension after 9-11, the US started not to care
about fabricating lies or even justify its moves. It is now and
as a result of its imperial mentality looking for any
opportunity to execute the previously drawn plans regardless of
Thus, we saw how
the US Administration did not care about the UN when it invaded
Iraq, and did not give the UN inspectors the time they needed to
verify the presence of weapons of mass destruction.
Then, in the
aftermath of the invasion and when the Americans talked about
certain mistakes regarding this matter, they did not feel sorry
that these mistakes led to the invasion of a country and killing
tens of thousands, of its people. Instead they changed the goals
of the invasion to talk about the need to remove the tyrant whom
nobody feels sorry forů But this is not the point, since the
question is: who gave America the authority to appoint dictators
and then remove them when they are no longer needed.
Administration feels that it no longer needs to resort to
deceit, giving its forces the freedom to use all terrorist
means, claiming that this is justified by its war on terrorism.
It is also not concerned with the results of this devastating
In doing this, the
American president was able to make a few new 9-11s, in the Arab
and Islamic region. He is planning for additional massacres and
tragedies, at a time he presents himself to the American voters
as the general who seeks to eradicate terrorism in the world.
We believe that
Bush is getting ready to commit additional massacres in the
region in the relatively short period before the elections.
He believes that
this would attract additional voters to vote for him, claiming
that terrorism is an Islamic phenomenon, and that the best way
to confront it is to go to it before it comes to himů
This policy has
made America kill multiples of those killed in 9-11 turning the
world to a state of globalization of terrorism.
We notice that the
mass killing operations that are committed by the occupying
forces in Iraq resemble the way Sharon is eradicating the
Palestinians, and tell the world that General Bush is no
different than General Sharon.
It is also intended
to act as a message to the Arab and Muslim peoples that spilling
their blood is lawful not just to execute the American strategy,
but even to renew Bush's term in office.
That is why
American war planes raid the civilians whether in the streets or
in their houses, while talking about the democracy they are
trying to build in Iraq.
The World should,
and before it is too late, voice its rejection to the American
policy of deceit, and the terrorist acts the occupation is
committing in cold blood, just as it condemns the other acts of
terror practiced by individuals or groups. Europe in particular,
has an ethical and political responsibility to condemn these
acts before the killings and violence extend to new places that
have so far been safe.
