We are afraid that the American Administration has
begun to plan to create internal chaos in Lebanon, having felt that the
Lebanese left on their own could reach reconciliation and agree on a
formula of the future of their country.
We warn the
Lebanese; especially those in charge, against getting involved either
directly or indirectly in this plan. We also warn those who are trying to
escalate the tension that this escalation will have a negative effect on
the entire country, and that it will hit them before it hits the others.
his weekly seminar the following question: Does initiatives have
a role in Islamic legislation, and how does Islam view it?
The Religious Authority, Sayyed
Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, said:
Islam has urged people to do good,
and wanted all Muslims and all human beings to participate in spreading
the culture of social and economic solidarity. It encouraged all the
initiatives that aim at serving people whether Muslims or non-Muslims, on
the basis that good is a universal phenomenon, and that continuing to do
it is an Islamic duty that Islam embraced and that was called for by all
That is why we emphasize that Islam
encourages all initiatives of good whether in the form of charity and
whether they are individual or collective projects.
Islam has considered the latter as a
continuous form of charity whose initiators would be forgiven by Allah,
especially when these projects are not confined to humane services, but
extend also to the political and social aspects of the community.
As for the political issues that
determine the destiny of the nation, Islam has emphasized the importance
of initiatives of reform that aim at preserving the unity of the social
entities as well as the reconciliations between states, provided that it
does not undermine bigger reform projects on the level of the Islamic
nation. It should rather integrate with it and play a role in promoting
On this basis, we have always viewed
positively all political reform initiatives that tried to reconcile
between various parties, so as to prevent the chaos in one place from
spreading to the other places, and diffuse the conflict of civil strife
that is planned to spread in the entire Arab and Islamic world where
tensions are rising especially in Lebanon.
As we appreciate certain responsible
initiatives that certain parties within the nation have initiated to
secure the internal peace in Lebanon, and guarantee Lebanonís good
relations with the Arab and Muslim environment, and as we appreciate too
the Lebanese initiatives that seek reform and whose only goal is to
preserve the unity of the country, its sovereignty and the future of its
generations, we notice that there is a big octopus that moves quickly to
undermine any initiative that does not promote its interests or that does
not conform with its vision for the future of the region or the place
and role of Lebanon in its plan.
We notice an intensification of the
efforts of the Western powers, and especially the Americans, to prevent
the Lebanese from drawing an agenda for reconciliation, planning for
their future and determining their own destiny.
Thus, the American political
diplomatic efforts in Lebanon do not represent an American commitment to
help the Lebanese. It is a subversive effort that aims at hindering the
efforts of the Lebanese to reconcile, whether on their own, or with the
help of the Arabs and Muslims.
We are afraid that the American
Administration has begun to plan to create internal chaos in Lebanon,
having felt that the Lebanese, left on their own, could reach
reconciliation and agree on a formula of the future of their country.
We warn the Lebanese; especially
those in charge, against getting involved, either directly or indirectly,
in this plan. We also warn those who are trying to escalate the tension
that this escalation will have a negative effect on the entire country,
and that it will hit them before it hits the others.
