Lebanese "Spiritual" Leader Calls On Palestinians To Revive Intifada
During Friday prayers, the “spiritual” leader of Hezbollah called on Palestinians to revive their intifada against Israel.
Iranian Fars News reported:
TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Lebanon’s most senior Shiite Muslim cleric Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah called on the Palestinian nation to revive its popular uprising – the Intifada – against the Zionist regime.
“While the United States claims that it is promoting freedom and democracy in different world countries, particularly in our Arab and Islamic region, a review of its political and security strategies shows that the US seeks to undermine the oppressed nations of the world in a bid to attain its interests and control the world economy, specially through dominating the Middle-East oil reserves,” he said.
Beirut’s Friday prayers leader further described the Zionist regime as an aggressor and enemy of Arabs, Muslims and Palestinian nation, and slammed the US and certain European states for praising Israel as the only democratic country in the region.
He also criticized Arab leaders for giving concessions to the Zionist regime and serving interests of the Tel Aviv as a result of US pressures.
“Following the US pressures, some of the leaders of the Arab states gave big concessions to the Zionist regime and regulated their plans and programs in line with the interests of the Zionist regime in such a way that the strategic Arab-Zionist regime issue has now been restricted to the Palestinian-Zionist regime conflict,” Fadlallah said.
“The situation has grown so worse that some of the Arab officials describe the Zionist enemy as their friends and view the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance as the only impediment to their friendship,” he added.
