Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah reiterated on Wednesday that the ‘Israeli' deadliest offensive against Gaza launched since Saturday was identical to what had taken place in Lebanon during the July 2006 war and expected that the Palestinian Resistance would achieve victory and Zionist entity would be defeated once again. His eminence stressed that the Palestinian Resistance was still tenacious and solid, pointing out that its base wasn't affect by the massacres committed until now.
Sayyed Nasrallah was speaking through a large screen as he marked the fourth night of Ashoura at the Sayyed Shouhadaa complex in Beirut's southern suburb (Dahiyeh).
His eminence pointed that there was more than one aspect in the offensive against Gaza, noting that the air raids against Palestinians, the martyrs who have fallen, the destruction which is taking place were not the whole picture. Sayyed Nasrallah praised the Palestinian Resistance for its steadfastness and firmness, the Gaza people for their sense of responsibility and support for the Resistance.
The Resistance leader noted that the Palestinian Resistance was benefiting from the July 2006 war better than the ‘Israelis', noting that the lessons are making ‘Israelis' appear even weaker. His eminence remarked that the Israelis didn't have any "declared goal" for the war they are launching on Gaza. "In Lebanon, they announced very high goals since the first day but they failed to achieve anyone of them," Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out, noting that for these reasons, they seem really perplexed in Gaza. "They didn't even say that they seek to tumble the Hamas government or put an end to the Resistance status," his eminence said. "They don't even dare to say that they aim at preventing resistance factions of launching rockets," his eminence noted, mocking at the "rubber title" of "changing the situation in the ground."
"Israelis doubt their own ability to achieve the goals and this is complete failure," Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, noting that the Palestinian Resistance seems, in contrast, committed to victory. His eminence expected that the Resistance would triumph at the end given that time was not in ‘Israel's' interest, recalling that air raids could not settle the battle.
Sayyed Nasrallah uncovered an international plot to impose a humiliating settlement on Palestinians, saying that Hamas was the only obstacle for such a conspiracy. "They are preparing for an international conference to be attended by Americans, ‘Israelis', Europeans and the so-called moderate Arabs in order to end the conflict and impose a humiliating settlement on Palestinians," his eminence asserted.
However, Sayyed Nasrallah expressed belief that the Palestinian Resistance was strong and would achieve victory just like Resistance in Lebanon did in August 2006 "when the ‘Israeli' PM announced victory only four days after launching war." His eminence said that the Palestinian Resistance actually absorbed the first blow and its base wasn't affected by it. "This Gaza, although deemed weak, is putting today 208 settlements and 635 thousands ‘Israelis' in the danger zone," his eminence said.
"Because of resistance and steadfastness, because of rejecting compromises or surrender, the Gaza strip is already triumphing and ‘Israel' witnessing defeat," Sayyed Nasrallah declared, calling on everyone to believe on the Palestinian Resistance and back it through all possible means. His eminence renewed his calls to the Arab regimes to support Gaza and the Egyptian government to open crossings for Palestinians.
Sayyed Nasrallah recalled that a majority of Lebanese has assumed responsibility and fought against occupation until throwing it out. "This national sense of responsibility allowed the Resistance to persist and develop since 1985," renewing commitment to the Resistance choice. "It's not that we want to have a Resistance and weapons, but it's our responsibility to commit to the Resistance," his eminence said, recalling that Lebanese had to choices "whether we live with honor and dignity or with degradation, and if we choose the dignity, then we have responsibilities to assume."
Sayyed Nasrallah has started his speech by focusing on the principle of "responsibility" in general. Sayyed Nasrallah pointed that responsibility wasn't limited to a specific geographic surrounding or dimension. His eminence stressed that whenever the human being is given a mind, freedom, choice and will, this means that he's responsible and he has to assume this responsibility.
His eminence emphasized that responsibility should include everything that surrounds us, noting that everyone should assume his responsibilities towards others but also towards the environment, trees, water, nature, and even animals. Noting that the youth generation was a generation of responsibility, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the highest level that produces a sense of responsibility within the human being was the spiritual and religious factor.
Sayyed Nasrallah tackled the issue of "greenhouse effect," noting that it constitutes nowadays one of the toughest challenges within the international community. His eminence pointed to a role for the US administration or the "greatest Satan" in this field, stressing that the US crimes are not limited to invading Iraq and Afghanistan but extend to the environmental cause. "The US is, until today, refusing to engage into any agreement that would restrict the Greenhouse effect due to the American greediness and avarice," his eminence said. "No matter how many millions of people are killed, the important thing for the American Administration is that US companies continue manufacturing and earn ill-gotten gains," Sayyed Nasrallah added, warning that such gains would lead one day to cause the biggest catastrophe and greatest Divine punition as to the American administration.
