An immense complications face the American offensive whenever it
approaches the Palestinian arena and the region.
H.E. Sayyed Muhammad
Hussein Fadlallah considered the last American threats as a call for
Arabs and Muslims to be disciplined. He also pointed out that these
threats serve as a warning that precedes the next political move that
Washington is trying, through it, to invest, what has happened in
Afghanistan in the Arab and Islamic arena.
that the region is not likely to assimilate the solutions that are
being talked about but rather it is apt to more chaos, conflicts, and
disturbances, he stressed that there are still some resistance
positions in the nation that may be able to face the next rounds of
American aggressions. These aggressions, added Fadlallah, will face
immense complications whenever it approached the Palestinian arena and
weekly lecture, H.E. was asked about the coming rounds of the American
war on the region, he said:
beginning we have to know an essential issue : we do not consider that
the Taliban represents the true image of Islam. In addition, there are
those who say that the end of the Taliban represents the beginning of
the end of the Islamic movements in the Arab and Islamic worlds.
However, we say that the U.S. could not have accomplished what it had
against the Afghani people, without making use of several weapons,
most prominent of which was the Arab and Islamic silence. Although
this silence has turned into an action but it was a very slow action
that did not exceed the level of condemnation and words.
fears that we had about
the Palestinian Intifada have remerged
today as we witness this
American aggression whose targets are expanding and dangers are
increasing pursuant to the relaxation and indifference
towards the continuous pressures on our Arab and Islamic
people. These pressures were also aimed at restricting the nation’s
concerns to their internal social and economic problems only.
feel that the dangers that threaten the nation’s causes come from
this horrible stagnancy that almost fell upon everything, we are
looking forward with hope to this newborn movement that began to
emerge as a result of the subjugations, repressions, killings, and
annihilations that have left traces in many areas and in which its
hard for the arrogant powers to void it or vent out the anger and
congestion resulting from this movement, even if that was through the
announcement about American initiatives coming to the region under the
Palestinian cause or the Palestinian state titles.
American threats, which harmonize with the rhythm of the war in
Afghanistan, wants to tell the Arabs and Muslims that they have to be
disciplined, so that they would serve as a warning that precedes the
next political move that Washington is trying to invest, through it,
what has happened in Afghanistan in the Arab and Islamic arena and in
what they call the “Middle
East” in particular.
We want to
assert that there are certain forces in the nation that can face the
next rounds of the American aggression and can produce new elements of
No matter how much this campaign may be heightened,
it will enter into immense complications whenever it approaches
the Palestinian arena and the region as a whole, because this arena is
totally different than the one in Afghanistan. If that is true, then a
new chapter of this crisis will begin in which we do not expect it to
move towards a settlement but to some kind of political chaos, which
expresses itself in new complications where political, economic, and
security elements overlap because the region is not likely to
assimilate the solutions they talk about, but is apt to more chaos,
struggles, and disturbances.
