warns of attempts to ripen the conditions for new plots in
Fadlullah: I warn of a series of assassinations that
Israel may be planning to destabilize Lebanon.
Religious Authority H.E. Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah was asked
in his weekly seminar about his reading of the recent security events
in Lebanon, and more specifically about if these events are a prelude
to more dangerous ones, he replied:
have to view what is going on in Lebanon, in relation with what is
going on in the region in general, and in occupied Palestine in
particular. The enemy there has failed in his attempt to end the
Intifada despite all the aggressions against the Palestinian people
and the pressures on the Palestinian Authority that are coupled with
Arab and international pressures to characterize the Intifada
as a kind of violence and terrorism.
the Lebanese government, people and Resistance rejection of the
political and security conditions that Israel had demanded, since it
was forced to withdraw and has tried lately to impose through
intimidation and successive diplomatic messages, has led the enemy to
choose new means of aggression. Through these new schemes, the enemy
is trying to prove that it can change the battlefront to Lebanon,
which continues to support the Intifada especially after it was
surrounded by the international and Arab demands and pressures.
understand what is happening in Lebanon, we have to follow up the
American movement in the region as well as the most recent Israeli
threats… We are afraid that there is a plan to benefit from the
political, security, and even economic instability in Lebanon to ripen
the conditions for the execution of a new plot in the region, or to
exert pressures on several Arab and Islamic parties to force them to
change their positions towards the Palestinian cause, or towards the
America-Israeli project in general.
call on the Lebanese to be aware of what has happened and of what is
going to happen: The enemy is plotting for a series of assassinations
that resemble what it did with the leaders of the Palestinian Intifada,
to influence the Lebanese rejection movement that might induce other
Arab and Muslim movements to oppose the American-Israeli dictates. In
addition, the enemy aims at exploiting all these developments to
incite internal strife in the country.
we know that the enemy does not have free access in Lebanon to execute
its plots, and that the official security agencies have managed to
dismantle many of its networks, we call on all Lebanese to play the
role of political and security guards so as not to give the enemy an
opportunity to reenter the Lebanese internal social and political
structures. Moreover, we are in a stage that demands consolidation of
our national unity to be ready for all the coming threats before
it’s too late, and stop being preoccupied with these absurd internal
feuds and mutual provocations that suggest that we underestimate how
critical the situation really is.
