The Second Sermon

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

It is the war. America’s Israeli war against all movements of freedom by those who are defending the will of their peoples, the sovereignty of their political decisions , the national resources and their strategy of building a new future . It is the new Vietnam war in Palestine and Lebanon in which America faces an Arab and Muslim people that possesses a free willpower, a firm stand, and a dignified spirit that seeks one of the two good ends : victory and martyrdom.
It is the war that began to claim the elite Israeli soldiers in Bint Jubail and Maroon Arrass ,destroying their tanks, haunting and besieging their intelligence units and imposing defeat on them in several battlefield fronts. It is the Resistance that believes in its God Who wishes the Believers to be strong and dignified, the Resistance that has confidence in its cause and nation and knows how to plan , execute and move towards victory
If the so-called international community, and some of the Arab regimes who are controlled by the US are confronting this Resistance, the peoples stand with it in this war to retrieve their dignity. The nation has found in this Resistance an opportunity to erase the history of defeat that was imposed on the nation by some of the regimes that are subjected by the American strategy that sought to keep the Arab World weak, and provided the enemy with all the means that enable it to be the strongest force in the region and impose its will on these regimes on all political , security and economic levels ….
The Resistance is fighting to emphasize God’s saying in the Quran that asked the Muslims not to be sad or feel frustrated, because if the are suffering the enemy is suffering too and God promised the believers that they are the ones who will gain the upper hand in the end . Thus the Resistance will not flee and will fight the enemy till this victory will be achieved ,regardless or how great the sacrifices might be.
The US Secretary of State came to the region to give those concerned the American Israeli instructions to continue the war of destruction , demanding that the other parties shoed be neutral in this war hat they claim its against Hizbullah only. She might have even asked that they should be on the US side politically …She announced that America rejects the ceasefire as long as it does complies with the American-Israeli conditions of building the new Middle East that is under American hegemony .
Then the Secretary of State gave Israel an extension to destroy Lebanon despite all the talk about not targeting the civilians .It is as if the Americans have told the Israelis secretly that they should continue to brutally kill the civilians , just like they themselves are doing in Iraq .
In the Rome Conference, the US prevented it from deciding on a ceasefire and to give Israel all the time it needs to finish its war on Lebanon
