Calling for a broad
popular movement to pressurize the narrow political circles
H.E. Sayyed Fudlullah:
The Israeli threats to Lebanon are trying to draw a ceiling for the
Asked in his weekly
seminar in the Al-Zahra Hall of the Imamian Hassanian Mosque, about
the state if the Palestinian Intifada and its prospects in the light
of the recent security agreement with the enemy, The Religious
Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah said:
There is no doubt that the Israeli
threats to Syria and Lebanon, especially the recent ones, are fostered
by the climate of the American continuing threats to the Arab and
Islamic region that acts as a continuous state of pressure whether on
those the Americans describe as their friends to ensure that they
follow the American pace in an precise manner, or on those who still
show some kind of opposition or rejection to ensure that they do not
act in a way that undermines the execution of the plan drawn for the
region, or cross any red or yellow lines the Americans have drawn.
If the Americans believe that they have
almost gained full control on the region by the series of threats and
pressures on its governments, many of which do not need more than
vague hints to take a position that is against the causes of its
peoples, the Zionists in their turn are trying to suggest the they are
about to impose a new stage.
This new stage is characterized by the
admittance of the Palestinians that they have been defeated,
especially after the enemy has resorted to new forms of atrocity not
least of which is the killing of entire families.
In this respect, we believe that the
recent threats to Syria and Lebanon lie in the same context, although
the Zionists fear that there is a plan to open a new front north of
Palestine, which would lessen the pressure on the Palestinians. The
previous Israeli and American threats aimed at neutralizing the
Lebanese front, so that they could concentrate their efforts on
cracking down the blessed Intifada of the Palestinian people.
Therefore, we believe that the latest
threats aim at drawing a line the confrontation does not go beyond and
turn into opening a second front.
For the American threats and pressures,
including the talk about the coming American offensive on the Arabs
and Muslims, aim at preventing the Arabs and Muslims from giving the
Palestinians any practical support at a time they are being subjected
to a savage irradiation campaign.
A broad popular movement is urgently
needed to pressurize the narrow political circles, to bring back life
to the Arab and Islamic body, so that we would stop being the nation
that is always under threat and that has to choose between the
American and the Israeli cancers, or the one that always has to adapt
to the new threats.
The Arab and Islamic street should
voice its demands first, if we want our position to be heard in the
region and in the world.
