America’s new Middle East
Fadlullah : We call on the Arab and
Muslim people to take to the streets following the example of the
Palestinians who have proved that with limited resources, they can
through patience and dedication confront and obstruct the enemy’s
in his weekly seminar the following question about: the
neo-conservatives project for the region
Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah said:
The project the
Americans are proposing represents the lever the Americans want to
use to facilitate their second phase of invading the region. This
American invasion has started with Afghanistan and wants, now that
it has occupied Iraq, to expand to the other parts of the Arab and
Islamic world, to ensure its hegemony over the entire region,
confiscate its wealth and markets, and direct its political
decisions in the way that serves both American and Israeli
That is why the
American Administration seeks in this stage in particular to
marginalize the Palestinian question or to deal with some of its
details in a way that turns them to major issues.
Bush’s America does
not have any solution for the Palestine issue. It has a project to
dominate the entire region that would enable it to dictate the
Israeli demands on the Palestinians.
Towards this end, the
Americans are practicing a lot of political hypocrisy towards the
Palestinian issue in particular, that intersects with the Israeli
hypocrisy and brutality.
On its part, Israel
destroys the Palestinian infrastructure and the Palestinian
Authority. Then the American Administration would accuse the
Palestinian Authority of not doing enough to fight what it calls
“terrorism” in the Palestinian resistance against
occupation… thus killing any initiative for any solution even an
interim one, and even if it was proposed by parties that are
customary considered pro-American, like the Egyptians…
All parties should
know that America, that holds democracy and human rights in one
hand and the war against terror in the other hand, is the one
responsible for enhancing radicalism in the region and supporting
several backward and fanatic movements, and even financing them.
And now it is proposing to treat this illness with a magical
prescription called moderation, which means according to America,
total submission to the details of its projects, which does not
respect the values and rights of the peoples of the Islamic and
Arab world as well as the Third World in general.
We warn against being
involved in the American plan of inciting a sectarian strife
between Shiites and Sunnis in the region, by benefiting of what is
going on in Iraq, especially that some of those who claim to be
confronting the American project are actually serving it by their
sectarian practices. We would like all parties in Iraq to
understand that America does not care about the interests of any
Iraqi sect, and wishes to confiscate the interests of all them to
promote its own interests and that of the Israelis.
Faced by these facts,
and on the basis of our Islamic and juristic responsibility, we
call upon the Arabs and Muslims not to remain silent and to
confront these threats in a responsible and conscious manner. We
call on the Arab and Muslim people to take to the streets
,following the example of the Palestinians who have proved that
with limited resources, they can, through patience and dedication,
confront and obstruct the enemy’s plans.
They are the living
example of the meaning of Ashoura in which the blood defeated the
sword, and the few were able in the end to be victorious.
