Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah warned that the current stage in Lebanon is so critical, saying there are some sides who have been working hard to create sedition among Muslims.
His eminence urged prudence and wisdom in order to face this sedition, quoting the holy Ayah (verse) of al-Qura'an: "If a troublemaker brings u a news, verify it."
During a ceremony held at Sayyed Shuhadaa complex in Beirut’s southern suburb for the occasion of Hezbollah’s Martyrs Day, Sayyed Nasrallah promised the martyrs to continue their path of resistance, stressing that the resistance is advancing and it would not abandon its path.
His eminence said that the resistance has settled the equation of deterrence against the Zionist entity, noting that “Ayyoub” drone, which was sent by Hezbollah last month over the Palestinian occupied territories, was part of this equation.
As he stressed that the issues of unity government is to be discussed through dialogue, he considered that the ball was in March 14 camp’s court as he gave them the option to return to dialogue or not, noting that it was “of Hezbollah’s high values to sit for dialogue.”
On regional issues, Hezbollah S.G. said that both the Syrian and the Bahraini conflicts are to be solved peacefully and through halting violence.
ABOUT THE OCCASION
Talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah recalled the operation of martyr Ahmad Kassir which took place in November 11, 1982, killing dozens of Israeli occupation soldiers and officers.
His eminence said that the operation of the “Prince of Martyrs”, referring to Kassir, is still considered the most powerful operation against the Zionist entity.
“The era of “the enemy defeat and the resistance victory” was declared following Ahmad Kassir’s operation, Sayyed Nasrallah addressed crowds.
“In this anniversary of Martyrs Day the resistance has completed its 30th year… In this day we promise our martyrs that to continue this path and to keep their promise, his eminence added.
Sayyed Nasrallah also regretted that some Martyrs need a “certificate of nationalism”, while other collaborators are considered national people.
“Some want us and the Ummah (nation) to forget our history as well as their history… It’s regrettable that some Israeli collaborators request certificates of nationalism for our martyrs.”
“We will continue our efforts, and don’t think that the campaign against the resistance would turn us away from our work to deter the enemy,” his eminence pledged.
RESISTANCE AND EQUATION OF DETERRENCE
Hezbollah leader stressed that the resistance has been advancing, noting that the resistance has settled the equation of deterrence through the concept of army-people resistance.
“Following July war in 2006 the Israeli enemy acknowledged the reality of Lebanon’s deterrence against Zionist entity.”
“The concept of army-people-resistance represents the equation of deterrence against the Zionist enemy,” his eminence added.
He said that “Ayyoub” drone is a part of this equation, noting that the enemy has said nothing about the drone, while some local sides have condemned the action.
“The enemy knows very well what does the resistance’s possession of right and clear information mean.”
“Thanks to deterrence equation, the enemy has done nothing when we sent Ayyoub drone. However some Lebanese part condemned such actions, giving the Israeli enemy the “right” to attack Lebanon,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
Talking about the rightfulness of the resistance choice Hezbollah S.G. stressed that March 14 camp has not believed in this choice, saying that relying on other “peaceful” choices has no results.
“March 14 camp had never believed in the resistance choice as it had never considered the Zionist entity an enemy.”
“If we have relied on the Arab League then there would be Israeli settlements in Lebanon,” his eminence stressed.
“Where is the Arab League when the Israeli enemy had attacked Sudan’s sovereignty as it raided the weapons factory there? Where is the Arab League of all the issues that are agreed on? Where is the Arab League of what is going on in Burma,” Sayyed Nasrallah wondered.
“The resistance choice is the only one which protects Lebanon, and its abandonment is foolishness. “
“IT’S OF OUR HIGH MORALS TO SIT FOR DIALOGUE”
On the Lebanese political condition, Sayyed Nasrallah considered the ball at March 14 camp’s court, saying the unity government issue is to be solved only through dialogue.
“It's of our high morals to sit for dialogue and discuss the defense strategy and the resistance’s weapon.”
“If You want to sit for dialogue you are welcome, but if you don’t.. it’s up to you, we have no problem,” his eminence said.
Sayyed Nasrallh also considered excluding some sides from the dialogue as injustice.
“Is it justice to exclude sides that have resisted the enemy while other collaborators are included,” he wondered.
CRITICAL STAGE NEEDS PRUDENCE
Hezbollah leader warned against the critical condition in Lebanon, noting that some sides in March 14 camp which have been trying to create sedition between Sunni and Shiite.
“The region around us is strained, including Lebanon. For that we should behave wisely in order to prevent the country’s explosion.”
“Some are exploiting the assassination of Maj. Gen. Wissam Hasan in order to create sedition between Sunni and Shiite in Lebanon,” he said further.
“There is confirmed information that some sides in March 14 who are trying to ignite Lebanon through sedition between Sunni and Shiite,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that these sides are March 14’s Christians and some figures in al-Mustaqbal (Future) party.
“Some people want to exploit any incident in a bid to create a Sunni-Shiite sedition, and what happened yesterday in Sidon was aiming to do so,” his eminence said, adding that the authorizes have abandon it’s duty in this context.
Furthermore, Sayyed Nasrallah assured that Sidon is the capital of resistance and unity between all Lebanese whatever their sects are.
He addressed all the Lebanese “especially the Sunni and the Shiite that this stage is so critical, we should watch out and not be taken by the incitement, lying and delusion.”
Hezbollah Leader here quoted a holy Ayah (verses) of the Qura’an that says: ““O you who believe! If a troublemaker brings you any news, investigate, lest you harm people out of ignorance, and you become regretful for what you have done.”
Sayyed Nasrallah also urged dialogue between all Muslims, stressing the importance of the contact between the scholars and figures in order to prevent sedition.
“Preventing sedition recommends patience. If any side has committed a mistake the other should work to solve the issue, and the authorities also have to do their duty.”
SYRIAN, BAHRAINI CONFLICTS
On the Syrian and Bahraini issues, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that they should be solved through dialogue.
“It’s for Syria and the Syrians’ sake to be engaged in dialogue and to halt violence.”
“However, the others are pushing towards refusing dialogue. They have gathered at Doha and created a new formula for the opposition as Clinton wanted. The more dangerous issue is that this opposition is refusing dialogue and preferring more and more killing and destruction.”
Talking about Bahrain, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the Bahraini authorities are fed up with the peacefulness of the opposition’s moves, to the extent that the regime has been blaming Hezbollah for the blasts which took place in the Kingdom recently.
In this context Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the regime was searching for a pretext to hit the opposition and to arrest the peaceful opposition figures.
