Surprised by the silence of the Arab and Islamic “street” towards the escalating Zionist Massacres.
Fadlullah considers Sharon’s visit to Washington as one of the most
dangerous visits, due to the plots that will be contemplated in it.
Asked in his weekly seminar about the
Israeli-American relations before the anticipated American offensive,
the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah stated:
I believe that the talk about Sharon being summoned
to the US does not reflect the real American stance towards Israel.
What is going on-especially in this stage- is an American-Israeli
coordination at the highest levels to run the war against our region.
This comprehensive coordination includes both the strategic issues,
and the minor details in which the two parties divide the roles among
Thus, we believe that Sharon’s coming visit to
the States is one of the most dangerous visits due to the plots and
projects that the Americans are going to tell the Israelis about so
that the latter can follow their rhythm in the political and military
steps they take, either in occupied Palestine or in the entire region.
This is because the American Administration wants

It is quite tragic to see that some European
capitals are witnessing demonstrations to protest against the
massacres or the American war on Iraq, which have also reached
Australia and even the United States, without any similar movements in
the Arab and Islamic world.
As if the American aggression is something that you
cannot prevent or confront, but only deal with its consequences after
We are witnessing one of the most dangerous stages
in all our contemporary history, since the American and Israeli
projects have coincided in an unprecedented manner, in both the
tactical and strategic levels…
If the Arab regimes believe that they will not or
cannot use their armies to face the aggression why do they prevent
their peoples from trying to fight the coming aggression, especially
that they know that at least some of them are meant to be changed or
pay a heavy political economic and security price if the Americans and
Israelis execute their plans.
You still have ample time to do something instead
of waiting for the fire to reach your houses, or more accurately, your
