in his weekly seminar on how he views the strong return of the
Intifada, in such a regional climate, the Religious Authority Sayyed
Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah said: “We have to know, right from the
beginning, that the American talk about the efforts to establish a
Palestinian state is a kind of political hypocrisy that has been going
on since the “Oslo agreement” and all the ones that followed.
During all this period the enemy, with the help and coordination of
the Americans, has tried to gain time to be able to crush the
Palestinian Intifada. In this respect the new American plan, “Road
Map”, talks about a provisional Palestinian state to be agreed upon
in 2004, but it does not talk about its nature or its borders.
Moreover, it leaves the discussions of the issues of Jerusalem, the
refugees and the borders to the year 2005.
that all what Washington wants is to convince the Arabs that they
should help it, as well as Israel, in pressurizing the Palestinians to
end their Intifada. The United States is trying to prepare the
atmosphere in the region to be well suited with its offensive on the
region. It does not want any Arab political harassment or any
Palestinian military one…
We wonder: How
could a country whose president has signed an act considering
Jerusalem an eternal capital of Israel present itself as a sponsor for
peace in the region and for the negotiations concerning Jerusalem and
the refugees in particular?!
is getting ready to provide Israel with financial aid to save its
economy, it is trying to end the political presence of the Palestinian
and may be their human presence as well. All its movement in the
region is based on deceiving the Arabs and the Palestinians, to
facilitate Sharon’s plan of crushing the Intifada, or at least to
lead them to believe that all their sacrifices in the last two years
have been in vain and that they have to beg America to give them some
of the Israeli leftovers.
strong return of the Intifada, whether through the last operation or
the previous ones, means that the Palestinians are making a different
political map of their own, that is different than the one America has
drawn, the “Road Map” that America wants to define the deployment
of its troops in the entire Arab region. Furthermore, what Israel was
preparing for, to announce the death of the Intifada, has turned into
an announcement of a new phase in the Palestinian struggle that is not
intimidated by threats.
Palestinian Intifada has drawn the line that separates between
subjection and defiance to the attempts that aim to defeat the nation
and humiliate it. Nevertheless, we still face a big problem that lies
in the fact that although the nation admires the legendary
steadfastness of the Palestinians, it does not provide them with the
necessary help. If such help remains absent, and if the Intifada does
not turn into a political movement in the Arab and Islamic worlds, the
enemy will always feel that it is able to silence it.
