grand Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah:
What interests America is the Zionist security in the region.
U.S. is utilizing the event of September 11 to exercise pressures in
all directions. As
Lebanese, it is necessary to consolidate our national unity to
confront these challenges.
Sayyed Fadlallah indicated that the U.S would not exert any pressure
to help Lebanon out of his economic crisis.
Because, for the U.S the issue Israel’s need for security in
occupied Palestine and along the border with Lebanon.
stressed that the U.S is trying to exploit what happened on September
11 to exercise pressures in all directions and particularly the Arab
and Islamic arenas in order to prepare the region to the post –
Afghanistan war stage.
E. viewed the threat to void Lebanon as a state and as an entity and
as an existence does not possess any politicall reality.
What is important for the Lebanese is to consolidate their
national unity against all the threats.
was asked about these American threats,
and he replied that
no doubt these new threats, are essentially
Americans , did talk about this issue before and
particularly after Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon.
They have worked out a plan against Lebanon to the effect that
Lebanon will not reach a stage of economic development unless Israel
feels that its security conditions, are met and a top of this the
issue of deploying the army along the border and the disarming of the
added, when we used to say, in the past, that the U.S. that the U.S.
will not exert any real effort to help Lebanon out of its economic
crisis, the issue is not different today than before.
However the U.S. which is responsible – one way or the other
– for Lebanon’s deteriorating
economy, will try to complicate the issue, even if Lebanon yields to
its conditions. Because
its only concern is the Israeli
security inside occupied Palestine and along the front with Lebanon
especially the Sheba farms .thus,
we have seen U.S secretary of state ,Colin Powell. openly asks Syrian
counterpart to pressure the Lebanese resistance in order to calm then
conflict with Israel.
do not want to categorize the American threat as an act of We because
we know that the U.S in trying to take advantage at the September 11
attacks in order to actuate new path of pressure in all directions,
and especially the Arab and Islamic nation.And also to prepare the
region to the post – Afghanistan war stage .In
the mean time, we feel that these threats to void Lebanon as a
state and as en entity and a an existence does not possess any
political reality even on the economic threats level.
added, Lebanon, people and government, possesses, more than one source
of power which it can use to confront the threats that come
successively in a way that keeps the statuesque , especially that
the U.S. fears from any change
in the South.
U.S wants, these threats to act as a counter weight that prevent the
Lebanese from toppling its political plan in the region as a whole.
But at the same time it
knows how important Lebanon
is in to Arab-Islamic
worlds . And, that
Lebanon can resort to any of several alternatives to fail the American
concluded saying: the U.S. does not have the absolute power in the
region and it is very difficult for the U.S. to obtain any
international empowerment in any political, economic, war against
Lebanon as a whole, because it
enjoys international sympathy from several channels.
the issue is not what others we planning, but what the Lebanese do in
regard to their internal unity to confront all the dangers ,encircling
Lebanon economically, politically and security wise .
Because if the Lebanese wanted their country to always be in a
strong position in the region, there is
no power that can defeat their will.
it they decided to continue in the line of dispute, disagreements and
political contradictions, then what awaits, them in the future is far
more dangerous than what they had suffered in the past and what they
are suffering from now.
