The Fate of the Islamic Unity
nation should adopt a unified Islamic position that affirms the right
of its states to possess the essential scientific capabilities to
serve and defend its economic and political future in the face of the
American and Zionist ghoul that is targeting not only their present
but their future as well.
Asked in his weekly
seminar the following question:
the International Atomic Energy time limit for Iran to stop enriching
Uranium ends at the 25th
of this month. Meanwhile, several American, European and Israeli threats are
being made, making the entire region look like it is about to witness a big
How do you view the
repercussions? And what is the Islamic stance regarding the acquiring of
elements of scientific and technological strength including the nuclear
Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, said:
has been trying to convince Iran to give up enriching uranium, with the US
and Israel making threats while Europe providing some incentives. All this
aims at thwarting Iran's progress in nuclear technology and hindering its
right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, despite the fact that
other states in the world like Brazil and South Africa are continuing their
nuclear program without any Western objection.
It is evident that the American
Administration that serves the Israeli interests in the region wants to go
all the way in besieging Iran politically and economically to prevent it
from joining the club of advanced technological nations.
But this is only one of two
goals. The other being trying to persuade the Iranians by means of
temptations to withdraw from its strategic Islamic role in defending
Palestinian rights. Since the Palestinian cause is still and will remain the
major Arab and Islamic issue, the Americans want Iran and all Arabs and
Muslims to stop their support to.
In this respect, we notice an
American and European commitment to the security of Israel, at the expense
of the security of the entire region.
Although there are certain differences between the American
and European positions, Israelís security even when it means setting the
entire region on fire, or putting it in a political and economic chaos, is
still the first priority of the Western powers.
Israel's supremacy is an American principle but it is being executed by
both America and Europe. This principle is based on the presumption that
whatever technology Iran might possess could benefit some of the liberation
movements the West considers as terrorist movements, where as Israel's
possession of nuclear weapons means the possession of strategic weapons it
uses to defend itself in the middle of the Arab and Muslim world.
On the other hand, the possession of any Arab or Muslim country of any
strategic weapon or advanced technology is considered a threat to world
The West is presenting Iran as a strategic threat to intimidate the
Islamic Republic and prevent it from acquiring the bombs, despite the fact
that it knows the Islamic ruling that deems unlawful the possession of
weapons that endangers man and the environment except in extreme cases of
They want Iran not even to think about a nuclear program, for they wish
to calm any Israeli fears, and keep the Arab and Muslim region void of any
presumed threat to their Zionist enemy so as to say to Sharon and other
Zionist officials that the elimination of the Iraqi military threat was only
the first step, and that the political and economic means precede other
direct ways of dealing with the Iranian threat.
Although we do not wish to underestimate the threats Iran is facing and
the wise and cautious way Iran is dealing with them, we know that Iran is no
Iraq, and that America today which has sunk in the Iraqi quicksand is not
the same as yesterday.
Furthermore, the entire region will destabilize, if America
or Israel hit Iran. That is why we find that the law passed by the Iranian
parliament ordering the government to continue to enrich uranium is a
rational and a carefully studied move, despite all the surrounding dangers.
In addition, we call on all Arab and Muslim countries to consider that
they too are concerned with the threats since they target the Islamic
political, economic and scientific capabilities of the whole nation. We also
call on them not to listen to what Israel and America are trying to convince
They should not be afraid of any Iranian force, for Iran, as
it has proven, is not a force of aggression. It only aims at protecting the
nation and its causes. This nation should adopt a unified Islamic position
that affirms the right of its states to possess the essential scientific
capabilities to serve and defend its economic and political future in the
face of the American and Zionist ghoul that is targeting not only their
present but their future as well.
