events in Palestine
his weakly seminar, H.E. Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlullah said that
the Martyrdom operations in Occupied Palestine express frustration and
rage against the continuing international collusion against the
Fadlullah stressed that these operations are legitimate. He also
pointed out that the American Administration is the first one to blame
for the last events in occupied Palstine and all the Palestinian
Sayyed believes that the Intifada has give the whole nation a moral
force so huge that it could change it with resolve and determination
to confront on going American Aggression..
his view regarding the latest developments in occupied Palestine,the
We view the
latest Martyr operations and the continuing Palestinian confrontation
of the occupation, from two angles:
represent the legitimate right of the people
whose land has been occupied and who were besieged from all sides in
such a way that they could not find any other way
to face Israeli terrorism.
These operation express frustration and anger as a result of the
international collusion against the Palestinians, for they have
witnessed all the Zionist massacres and brutal crimes without saying a
word, owing to the continuous American pressure.
added: The prime responsibility on what had happened lies on the
American Administration that justified, right from the beginning, all
these massacres. To those who say that America has given Israel a
green light for this new round of aggression, I would like to remained
them that America has given him the green light since the day he took
office, just as it had given Barak. And it will continue to provide
him with a political cover as long as silence remains the only Arab
response, and as long as
the Islamic and Arab Summits make promises to the Palestinians and
then dance over their grievances.
went on to say: We believe that the latest operations represent a new
upheaval and a_new stage in the life of the Intifada, especially as it
redirected the political struggle towards the Arabís major cause;
that of Palestine and Jerusalem, being the real and fundamental
struggle against the American and International Octopus that tried to
impose on the nation a war that it did not choose its time or place,
so as to inflict a new defeat.
Palestinian Mujahideen were able to prove, through their incredible
sacrifices that the true battle the nation should dedicate all its
resources to, is the battle of Jerusalem, the symbol of Palestine.
believe that the Intifada is not only the umbrella that shelters the
Palestinians and their cause, but it has also been able
to provide the whole nation with a moral boast that will charge them
with the resolve and determination to confront the current American
aggression against it.
Those who are
saying that the latest operations have closed the new window of
opportunity to find a solution ought to be silent, for America was not
going to provide any magical solutions.
their envoys to kill the Intifada as a prelude for a new war against
the Palestinians and than the whole nation.
concluded: At these times in which we
feel that words are without any value compared with these huge
sacrifices the Mujahideen of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fateh and the rest,
we would like to say to the Palestinian Authority, that it has to
choose between two alternatives. It would
either stand with its people and continues the Intifada, in spite all
the Americans, European and Arab pressures, or choose the other road
which will make her loose what ever political credibility it has left,
knowing how badly it needs this credibility in this critical stage.
In any case,
the Palestinians will not choose the road of defeat , for they have
surpassed the stage where
fear used to shake their hearts, and they have entered into an all-out
confrontation that will inevitably lead them to achieve their goals,
regardless of how big the sacrifices are.
