Hizbullah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah confirmed that the Resistance is going to respond on the “Israeli” assassination of Leader martyr, Samir al-Quntar, and that the “Israeli” must continue to fear this response.
He further extended the party’s condolences over the death of ex-MP Ali Eid. In parallel, the Resistance leader condoled the families of martyrs who fell alongside al-Quntar in Syrian Jaramana.
On the traits of martyr al-Quntar, Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed that the acts of sacrifice carried out by the martyr to serve the Resistance cause, in Lebanon or Palestine, in face of the “Israeli” occupation would end either in martyrdom or imprisonment.
Hailing the characteristics of al-Quntar, the dean of all the prisoners in”Israeli” jails, His Eminence highlighted that al-Quntar turned to become an icon for the school of Resistance.
“On this particular day we are in need to regain the readiness to sacrifices as al-Quntar did all along his 30 years in prisons that presented him as a model of sacrifice,” he mentioned.
According to Sayyed Nasrallah, al-Quntar was a school in everything. “As al-Quntar was sentenced to life in the Zionist prisons, his spirit never found a way towards desperate.”
“From behind the bars, he continued his education, used to lift morals of other prisoners, and exerted efforts in flourishing the Palestinian cause.”
His Eminence also elaborated that the traits of the great model were present in al-Quntar’s positions during the 2000 swap with the apartheid entity. “Samir affected me most after the year of 2000 when we were negotiating a swap deal and the German mediator told us the freedom of al-Quntar was impossible. That day, al-Quntar was selfless and told us not to stop the deal.”
“As we are commemorating al-Quntar, we must revive the spirit of sacrifice, because this is a key condition for the rise of the people, the persistence of Resistance and the creation of the future.”
This comes, His Eminence added, as many regional regimes are spreading desperate among the nation. “Hundreds of Arab and non-Arab satellite channels are promoting defeat, discouragement and responsibility evasion.”
On the same level, he denounced the fact that many regional government turned to act and promote that “Israel” is a “fact” that we must acknowledge and not confront.
In face of humiliating example, Sayyed Nasrallah offered the example of martyr al-Quntar. “After he was freed from “Israeli”prison, Samir could have lived a normal life among his family and friends, and he could have stayed in the axis of Resistance without getting involved militarily, but he refused to do so. It was one of the ideas I proposed to him and I told him that he could play an intellectual role.”
He further revealed that al-Quntar requested to help the resistance in its struggle against the Zionist entity and offered to give his expertise to the Resistance, especially after he was highly trained.
He, meanwhile, underscored that al-Quntar’s sin was that he took responsibility of the Golan front, at the time when the “Israeli” enemy doesn’t want this front to ignite.
“It’s possible that the “Israeli” enemy misinterpreted, this enemy doesn’t understand what brotherhood means as al-Quntar said in his will ‘we are equal in arms’. “Moreover, he affirmed that the martyr and his brothers helped in transferring expertise to the Syrian youth Resistance, which the enemy fears.
“The “Israeli” wanted to abort the Syrian resistance and the new resistance project since its early beginnings because of the sensitivity of the occupied Golan front.”
His Eminence stressed that “when the activities of the Resistance started near the Golan, “Israel” grew very anxious, and it started retaliating in a disproportionate manner to any shelling or gunfire on the border, even if it did not cause casualties.”
“Netanyahu has sought to obtain international recognition of the annexation of the Golan under the excuse of the Syrian conflict,” he said, pointing out that “al-Quntar and the Quneitra martyrs played a role in providing support to the resistance movement in the Golan [Heights] and this is what “Israel” feared.”
From martyr al-Quntar, Sayyed Nasrallah moved on to talk about the battle of hope the Palestinians are launching in face of the “Israeli” tyranny. On this level, he asserted that the main part of the Resistance is the continued presence of Palestinians in the occupied lands.
His Eminence went on to say: “”Israel” resorts to all means, including deploying its army, one of the strongest in the world, which enjoys the support of the United States, putting every Palestinian into prison before releasing them, and maintaining a crippling siege on the Gaza Strip, so that Palestinians would reach a state of hopelessness.”
“The whole world has, meanwhile, opened its doors to migrating Palestinians so they easily depart from the occupied territories,” he said.
In addition, he stated: “From the very first day of the usurpation of Palestine, the enemy has been seeking to strip the Palestinians and the people of the region of any hope on the removal of “Israel”. They have been seeking to influence our minds, will and resolve through a psychological war.”
n response, Sayyed Nasrallah, instead, advised all those favoring the liberation of the Palestinian territories from Israeli occupation to stage a “battle of hope” by asserting that it is the Zionists, who should leave the lands.
He cited a Palestinian female as telling an “Israeli” interviewer after release from an “Israeli” prison as saying, “This is our territory. This is our land. You must leave our land.”
“This is the battle of hope,” His Eminence said, compared to the battles of desperate and surrender the regional regimes are presenting.
He also slammed Arab nations for their incompetency and inability to face “Israel”, ridiculing the anti-terror coalition Saudi Arabia recently announced.
“Do not wait for Arabs to do anything about “Israel’s| crimes against the Palestinians, their homes and their holy places … What do you expect from Arab regimes? What have they done for the last 67 years? They have left no place for hope, but have rather brought despair,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
He further noted: “If all efforts in Syria, Iraq and other countries where conflicts are taking place were joined together, the “Israeli” entity would be wiped out.”
ddressing Palestinians, the Hizbullah Secretary General said that “Israel” only gives them two options: either to accept a semi-autonomous state, or migrate to other countries, denying that any party in “Israel” – whether left or right-wing – would accepted a so-called two state solution.
“A two state solution is out of the question for the “Israelis” … But an empire falls even after 100 or 200 years, so nobody should bet on “Israel’s” eternity.”
Back to the response to the “Israeli” assassination of al-Quntar, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Israel” decided that eliminating such an important target is worth the adventure and the sacrifice … They thought that al-Quntar is not that important to Hizbullah.
“We will not forgive those who have shed the blood of our fighters … We tell “Israel” to keep an eye on all the border – and even beyond them – as Hizbullah’s retaliation could happen anywhere,” he vowed.
“We do not fear any repercussions or threats and we cannot tolerate that the blood of our jihadist fighters and brother be shed anywhere in this world,” Hizbullah’s leader stressed. Wondering if the “Israelis” undermine Samir al-Quntar or the Resistance, why are they such frightened and seeking refuge in slums like rats?
In conclusion, His Eminence noted that the timing and place of retaliation is now in the hands of the faithful Resistance fighters and military commanders.
