Nasrallah: We Can Turn Millions of Zionists’ Lives into Real Hell

Update: Another Version (Translation)


Marwa Haidar

As his eminence stresses that the Palestinian cause is a central one, Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, says that the resistance can turn lives of millions of Zionists into real hell. Nasrallah threatens “hell” if Israel strikes LebanonSayyed NasrallahNasrallah threatens “hell” if Israel strikes Lebanon

Commemorating the International al-Quds day, Hezbollah held a ceremony in Beirut’s southern suburb, in which Sayyed Nasrallah addressed crowds, stressing that the resistance would defend the country against any Israeli attack, and would not wait for any permission to do so.His eminence noted that the price of this attack would be very expensive to the extent that “we can talk about tens of thousands of killed.”

Hezbollah S.G. affirmed that the issue of al-Quds “is over all disagreements”, adding that the Islamic Republic has been committed to the Palestinian cause. Concerning the events in Lebanon in the last two days, Sayyed Nasralla said that Hezbollah following the abduction of the Lebanese pilgrims in Syria had asked people to go out of streets. However his eminence stressed that now after three months of the abduction, the condition in the country was over control of Hezbollah and Amal Movement.

Sayyed Nasrallah also slammed media channels for their performance, saying it was “catastrophic” especially regarding the responsibility towards the kin of the abductees.



Sayyed Nasrallah stressed on the importance of making al-Quds the central cause, saying that it is over all disagreements within the Arabs and Muslims.

“We meet today in al-Quds day which Imam Khomeini had chosen as an international day in the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan,” his eminence addressed crowds.

“Imam Khomeini chose this day for al-Quds in an indication that this spiritual condition that we live in Ramadan should be concentrated in the favor of al-Quds.”
“In every year, and especially in Ramadan, we need to return to al-Quds and Palestine in order to recognize our religious, moral and humanitarian responsibilities toward them.”

Concerning Hezbollah’s stance towards al-Quds, Sayyed Nasrallah wanted to “reassure the enemy and the friend that the issue of al-Quds and Palestine is over all disagreements, and our faith in it would not be shaken.”

His eminence said that the Israeli enemy has been working on judaizing al-Quds, as he noted that the issue of al-Quds is an issue of consensus within the Israelis.
“We can’t talk about the future of al-Quds without talking about the fate of the enemy’s entity because the Zionists agree upon this issue whatever they disagree on other issues.”

“Zionists agree upon al-Quds and they are working on judaization of it, while the Arabs are not agreeing upon this cause,” his eminence noted.

He said that the occupation has been building settlements and trying to force the Palestinians out of their land.

“One of the causes of the poverty among the Palestinians is the racial wall which the Zionist have built, while the Arabs are sinking in the quagmire of their divisions and disagreements,” his eminence added.



al-quds day ceremonyTalking about the changes within the region, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Israeli enemy was first concerned over the revolutions across the Arab world, but then, when the crisis started in Syria, the Zionist entity was more comfortable, his eminence said further. “During the last two years, when the Arab world witnessed several changes, the Israeli enemy was concerned and they considered that the strategic danger on them was high.”

“Following these events, the Israeli enemy is standing aside, looking forward to developments with delight,” Sayyed Nasrallah added, noting that there are some sides who are exploiting Iran’s stance over the Syrian crisis in order “to create enmity between the Arab countries and the Islamic Republic.”

Hezbollah S.G. also tackled the recent threats by the Zionist entity over a strike against the Islamic Republic.

“In the last months the Israeli staged unprecedented escalation towards Iran, Syria or even Lebanon. This escalation is built on the last developments taking place in the region.”

Sayyed Nasrallah said that Israel’s problem with Iran is that the Islamic republic is committed to the Palestinian cause and al-Quds.

“The Zionist entity is mulling Iran attack and there is disagreement between the military institutions and the political ones. The base of this disagreement is not moral, but it’s over the utility of this military action and the price which Israel would pay,” his eminence noted.

“Why Israel is mulling the attack?” resistance leader wondered, adding: “If Iran was weak or coward the Zionist entity would not hesitate to attack the Islamic Republic.”

“Based on information and not analysis Iran’s response to any Israeli attack would be stunning and very powerful,” Sayyed Nasrallah said adding that the Israeli attack on Iran would be “the golden chance that the Islamic Republic has been waiting for years.”



 On the Israeli threats against Lebanon, the resistance leader was clear: the resistance can reach any target in the occupied territories and is able to change the phase of Israel.

“We can turn the lives of millions of Zionists to a real hell and we can change the phase of Israel,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“I say to enemy: the war against Lebanon is very, very, very… expensive!”
His eminence talked about very advanced missiles the resistance owns, saying they are capable to hit very accurate targets in the occupied territories.
“There are targets in the occupied territories which we can target by small number of accurate missiles, and these missiles can turn the Zionists’ lives into hell and can claim the lives of tens of thousands,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“In the year of 2006 there were two idiots (Olmert and Peretz) who committed an idiocy, bringing a huge defeat for Israel. And today I say to the Zionists that you have two other idiots: Netanyahu and Barak and if they committed an idiocy especially concerning Iran attack then it would be the end of Israel.”
Hezbollah leader said the resistance has enough courage and ability in order to defend Lebanon, adding: “when our country is attacked we won’t wait for a permission to defend it.”



Sayyed Nasrallah also tackled Mecca summit which took place two days ago. His eminence considered that there were some positive points which were announced at the end of the summit which was called by the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Sayyed Nasrallah welcomed the announcement of establishing a center for dialogue between Islamic sects. However his eminence said that the first step for this dialogue to succeed is to stop the accusations of unbelief by some sects to others, noting that the Saudi Arabia should stop funding some satellite channels.
Hezbollah S.G. also criticized the final statement of the summit, saying it talked a little bit about Palestine.

“If any Israeli read this statement he will say that if the Palestinian cause was put down then there is no an Islamic world to defend it.”

“To Palestinians I say that betting on the Arab regimes is fruitless,” his eminence said.

He noted that what has been going on in Syria is aimed at weakening Palestine.

“We voice concern over Palestine and Gaza strip. Regarding what’s going on in the region, especially in Syria, some Arabs are trying to crush Syria in order to weaken Palestine. When we take stance on Syria, we take it in consideration with the Palestinian cause.”

Sayyed Nasrallah said that Syria should have been invited for the OIC meeting.

“If the Arab leaders were responsible then they have should invited Syria to the summit and discuss all issues.”



On the issue of the abducted Lebanese pilgrims, Sayyed  Nasrallah said that at the first Hezbollah decided not to talk in the case and  to let the Lebanese authorities do their duty.

“However after months on the abduction, the pilgrims are not released and the  issue becomes over control.”

His eminence slammed the media’s performance  regarding the issue of the abductees, saying it was “catastrophic.”

“Due to this political and media performance the issue is now over control an  Hezbollah along with Amal movement can’t control the reaction of  people.”

“The case of the abductees becomes a humanitarian one. It also  becomes a political and media farce.”

Last month, the European Union turned down Israeli request to declare Lebanese Islamic Resistance group Hizbullah “a terrorist organization”.

There is no consensus for putting Hezbollah on the list of terrorist organisations,” said Cypriot Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis, whose country currently holds the rotating EU presidency.

As a result, some paranoid Zionist idiot by the name Nicholas Kulish whined at The New York Times (August 15, 2012) that thousands of Hizbullah members and supporters in Europe raise money that is funneled to the leadership in Lebanon. However, he did not mentioned if the the amount funneled to Hizbullah leadership is greater than US$6-14 billion funneled to Israel each year by the US government, Israeli lobby groups and Israel’s supporters.

Nicholas Kulish also claim that had EU declared Hizbullah a terrorist organization, it would have “destroyed Hizbullah”. In other words what 30,000-strong Jewish army could not achieve during the 34-day war in 2006 – EU’s declaration would have done it. First of all, Hizbullah doesn’t receive money from EU but Israel does. Furthermore, Hizbullah’ main backer, Iran is under EU’s several ‘Crippling Sanctions. To prove his case against Hizbullah, Nicholas Kulish, quoted several sources from the US State Department and European think tanks – all Zionist Jew individuals.

The EU is not an ‘honest broker’ when it comes to Israel-Arab conflicts. Most of the EU countries are ruled by Zionist-controlled politicians who would rather let Arabs pay for the Europeans’ past crimes against Jewish communities which were expelled 108 times from European countries. Furthermore, several polls had proved that a great majority of Europeans still don’t trust Jews – and therefore, they would not accept Israeli Jews back.

A 2003 poll conducted by Taylor Nelson Sofres/ EOS Gallup Europe in October 2003 among 15 EU countries showed that 57% of participants considered Israel to be the greatest threat to world peace. Early this year, Israel lobby group, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) released the results of its survey among EU countries. It showed that great majority of participants considered Jews more loyal to Israel than the countries they live in. Hungary (63%) topped hatred toward Jews and Israel followed by Spain (53%), Poland (48%), France (45%), Austria (28%), Germany (21%) and UK (10%) among the ten EU countries polled. A 2011 survey conducted among eight European Union (EU) nations by Friedrich-Ebert Stiftung, a prestigious Berlin-based think tank, associated with German Opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP), had found that 72.2% of Polish people believed that “Jews try to take advantage of having been victims during the Nazi era”. 68.1% Hungarians and 49.8% German participants agreed with Polish view.

On August 14, Hizbullah members and supporters celebrated the ‘Victory Day’. The event signifies Hizbullah victory over Israel in Summer 2006. It was the 5th Israeli war on Lebanon. Since then the Zionist entity did not attack Lebanon. The Resistance won for the second time. Hizbullah is not just a Shia resistance group as the western and Salafi-Wahabi propagandists like people to believe. In reality, Hizbullah, is a national resistance movement which have members and supporters from all sectors of Lebanese population, Shias, Sunnies, Christians and even atheist Ba’athists.

Franklin LambIn November 2010 – Dr. Franklin Lamb wrote that Israel doesn’t know how to defeat Hizbullah.

The skills that Hizbollah fighters used to force repeated errors by Israeli forces during the July 2006 war, and although not widely reported, during its 18 years of occupation of Lebanon (1982-2000). Errors, that the Israeli Winograd commission called “ the worst kind of mistakes and failures of the ground forces.” Among the examples  still discussed in Dahiyeh, and presumably in Tel Aviv and Washington, include  the Hizbollah forces routing of the Israeli  “elite” Golani, Egoz and Magland Brigades at Maron al Ras on the Lebanese-Palestine border between July 25-30, 2006,” wrote Dr. Lamb.

Increasingly during the 33 day July 2006 War, Israeli forces refused orders to advance against Hezbollah fighters, happily opting for 14 day jail sentences for failure to obey orders.  Concerning IDF recruitment and  AWOL problems, according to IDF Captain Arye Shalicar of the IDF Recruitment Fraud unit, it is US taxpayers who  foot the bill  for eight companies of private investigators recently hired to track down Israeli draft dodgers.  The popular social networking site, Facebook,  is being used  to track down thousands who lied about being religiously observant and seeking to avoid facing Hezbollah,” added Dr. Lamb.

Hizbollah, has smashed the myth of Israel’s invincibility, broken the barrier of fear, increased the popular demand for resistance, exposed the fake peace process and rejected appeasement, acquiescence and surrender. Hezbollah forces taught the world that Arabs can and will liberate Palestine because  they possess the qualities and acumen to do it. The kings and the presidents in the region, who for six decades chose their thrones over Jerusalem  quake as does Israel,” says Dr. Lamb.

    The zionists are cowards when it comes to man to man combat on the ground but this man is just seeking more suffering for the Lebanese people who have suffered for decades through a civil war and zionist aggression. “Israel” regularly violates Lebanese airspace with their fighter jets. Until hezbullah can do the same he should perhaps think before he talks.

    • pgg804 August 18, 2012 at 3:09 am #

      I don’t know if he is bluffing or if he really has the weapons he suggests. I’m not sure what he said is bad though. Hezbollah has never started a war with Israel and won’t now and I think there is a greater chance Israel attacks if they think they can strike a blow with minimal losses. I don’t sense that talking nice to Israel makes it less likely they will attack and if Nasrallah is only bluffing, his words may be enough to keep the cowards from attacking.

    an interesting question for a poll might be:

    if any nation armed with nuclear weapons were to use them in a first strike, whom do you think would be the most likely to do it?

    (choose one or more of the following options)

    North Korea

    • who_me August 17, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

      of course the correct answer would be syria or iran, so it is imperative that they get nuked first. 😉

      • etominusipi August 18, 2012 at 6:17 am #

        yes, good point, i should have included them. whilst they are not technically nuclear powers, according to credible intelligence delivered by Mr Blair to a closed session of the Chilcott enquiry, either country could produce a nuclear warhead and deliver it within 45 minutes

        • who_me August 18, 2012 at 8:36 am #

          “according to credible intelligence delivered by Mr Blair”

          ah, yes, after fox news, blair is the most credible source of valuable intelligence we in the west have. we are fortunate blair’s warnings about iraqi nukes were taken seriously. and none too soon, either. saddam would have gleefully killed us all in 45 minutes.

      I think Israel is most likely to use them, but probably only if they would otherwise be overrun. The problem is, if they use them the wind may blow the radiation back over their land and put hundreds of thousands of Israelis in the hospital.

      Of course if Israel attacks with conventional forces and the war turns against them, there is no telling what these psychopaths will do.

    “this man is just seeking more suffering for the Lebanese people who have suffered for decades through a civil war and zionist aggression.”

    This HERO is not seeking more suffering for his people. He is responding to Zionist threats.

    danny yatom
    Let us hear Danny Yatom, former Mossad Chief.

    According to Yatom ” an Israeli attack on Iran could destroy parts of Gaza and Lebanon,” because the main concern in the coming war was not Iran but Hezbollah and Hamas rockets.

    In an interview with the Israeli radio, Yatom warned about “the folly of painting an existential threat for Israel if it attacks Iran.”

    He acknowledged the fact that the Islamic Republic possesses a few hundred missiles which can reach the Zionist entity but stated that the main concern should be the tens of thousands of rockets possessed by Hezbollah and Hamas.

    He warned that these rockets have the range to “cover all of Israel, and that is the main problem.”

    Recognizing July War of 2006 Yatom said that if in the event of a war in the near future the Zionist entity “will have to stop the firing of missiles, both from the north and from the south, as quickly as possible.”

    In a cynical prediction of such an outbreak of war he said that “Israel will need to act with great force against infrastructure in Lebanon and Gaza, and it is possible that the price that Lebanon and Gaza will pay will be horrible.”

    The Zionist entity would be “liable to destroy, or likely to destroy, parts of Lebanon, and parts of Gaza, so that our citizens will not suffer and be killed,” Yatom added.

    Iran on Tuesday said it is dismissing Israeli threats of an imminent attack against it, explaining that even some Israeli officials realized such a “stupid” act would provoke “very severe consequences.”

      Alex, I get what you are saying and as my dearest friend in Beirut (half Sunni Palestinian, half Shia Lebanese) thinks he is a hero too, we often get into discussions with about Nasrullah with differing opinions. To say he won the war against the usurping zionut entity when so many innocent children/civilians died in Lebanon getting cluster bombed and so on, when few “Israelis” died is a bit cynical imo. A life is a life. I put myself in the shoes of the suffering and oppressed and imagine myself in that situation of bombs reigning all around when all hezbullah have are some rockets which mainly fall in open fields not harming anyone.

      • Alex August 17, 2012 at 10:20 pm #

        “I put myself in the shoes of the suffering and oppressed and imagine myself in that situation of bombs reigning all around when all hezbullah have are some rockets which mainly fall in open fields not harming anyone.”

        The so-called “some rockets which mainly fall in open fields not harming anyone.” continued to reign Israel till last day of July war.

        During the past 6 years “Israel” spent hundreds of million dollars in drills, Iron domes etc..

        Nasrullah is sending a messege to the idiots Natanyaho, and Barak.
        Nasrallah threatens “hell” if Israel strikes Lebanon
        Put yourself in the shoes of those Idiots and imagine few accurate missiles hitting, ammonia and perto-chemical stores in Haifa or Ashdod.
        I wonder if the other idiots(Olmert and Peretz)would have dared to attack Lebanon if nasrallah sent a similar message before the war?

  4. Alex August 17, 2012 at 9:18 pm #

    given the cynical use of numerology in elaborating the holohoax pseudo-myth, to store 6 million zionists in one small corner of the middle east might seem to be offering up a rather obvious hostage to fortune should the human race as a whole wake up to the threat it is now facing.

    some people act as if they think G_d has no sense of humor.

    however not everyone accepts that G_d ‘exists’ – e.g. some worship an alternative technogenic entity they call The Iron Doom*. what a faith to bring your kids up with!

    * the name Dome is used in sales literature, so the purchasor nation’s population is not unduly alarmed.

    caveat emptor.

    If Hezbulla attack Israel as a result of a conflict between Israel and Iran. The people of Lebanon will finally wake up to the fact that Hezbulla isn’t there to serve the interests of the people of Lebanon but those of the Shia’s in Iran. If Hezbulla will drag Lebanon into a war it has nothing to do with it will bring unprecedented destruction to Lebanon. Now that Hezbulla is part of the government the scale of IDF attack will be much greater. It won’t be just the Dahiya in Beirut under attack this time. Hopefully this will be wake up call in Lebanon to start disarming Hezbulla as UN resolutions require otherwise that terrorist organization will force Lebanon back to the stone ages every few years to wars with Israel it can’t win and Lebanon has nothing to gain from.

    • pgg804 August 18, 2012 at 1:49 pm #

      As we all know from history, Hezbolah has never attacked Israel and in fact Israel has started all the wars it has had; now they are threatening Iran. If Hezbollah chose to help Iran after Iran was attacked that would be because Iran has been helping Hezbollah protect the Lebanese people for years.

      One thing is for sure, the world is getting tired of Israel and as can be seen from websites flourishing on the internet, the world is getting tired of the zionists that support them. It appears they are managing to do it again. For the umpteenth time in history, they are getting the other people they live with to hate them, only this time its the whole western world – and its completely justifiable.

      Its too bad these monsters are shouting hatred at the Atzmon’s and Eisen’s of the world, when these are the people that could help them.

      • Cosmo August 18, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

        Not sure which history book you have been reading but in reality Hezbulla has been attacking Israel in cross border raids and barrages of rocket attacks on Israeli civilian towns.
        The 2006 war stared with another Hezbulla war crime attacking civilian cities all across northern Israel. Hezbulla will chose to help Iran in return for its help. Just like Hezbulla chose to help Assad massacre civilians in Syria in return for his help.

          George Galloway explains the 2006 Israeli attack on Lebanon. The biased reporting is from SkyNews owned by the Zionist Jew Rupert Murdoch. Galloway sums up the racist attitude of the media outlet at the end of the report, saying the reporter believes “Israeli blood is more valuable than the blood of Lebanese or Palestinians”. Whether she actually believes it might be questionable, but she knows what she has to say to keep her job.

          In “Robert Fisk: Why I had to leave the Times” Fisk explains what its like working for a Zionist-Jewish newspaper. Speaking of Murdoch he says “Oddly, he never appeared the ogre of evil, darkness and poison that he’s been made out to be these past few days.”

          I think the situation faced by “NAZI” Germany in the 1930’s is somewhat similar to that of Lebanon and Palestine. The new country of Poland was created from German, Austrian and Russian land in 1919 and over a million Germans were forced to live under this new regime and they were treated like second class citizens also. Similarly, Israel was created from stolen land.

      his opinions, whatever they may be, have been forged in a particular crucible which he, any more than of the rest of us, had no role in choosing. also he is younger than most of us, and therefore has had less time to engage in a long internal ‘dialogue’ about the nature of his personal conception of reality.

      as a perennially confused individual myself, i feel happy to engage in dialogue with anyone who is prepared to abide by the rules of mutually respectful intellectual argument – i.e. the kind of discussion from which all participants may emerge with enhanced self-knowledge, and a clearer definition of where they agree, and where they disagree, with other people.

    once there was a young IDF conscript called Gilad Atzmon…he was troubled by a condition called intellectual honesty and blessed with a fine musical talent. undoubtedly, if it had not been for the dreadful ravage wrought by the disease on his central nervous system, he could have become the director of the Tel Aviv philharmonic. sadly, this was not to be.

    that was then. now, however, i am happy to be able to report that this dangerous epidemic of intellectual honesty has been almost eliminated in Israel by advances in medical psychology.

    may i be permitted to add a personal note here, which i hope the moderators will not deem too far off topic?

    some years ago my colleague (and longtime personal friend) Dr Lev Jacobson (director emeritus of the Jerusalem Institute of Juvenile Development) contributed to the eradication of this scourge with his ground-breaking discovery that if very young children are groomed to write messages on bombs and missiles, they are almost 100% protected. as readers of deLiveration will no doubt be aware this ground-breaking discovery has now been integrated into the official educational policy of the State of Israel (trademark pending).

    Former Netanyahu deputy warns of “disastrous” Iran attack
    A former deputy of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday a preemptive military strike against Iran over its nuclear program could embroil Israel in a “disastrous war.”

    Shaul Mofaz, a parliamentary opposition leader who quit Netanyahu’s cabinet last month where he served as vice premier, said on Israeli television he thought Israel was “planning a hasty, irresponsible event.”

    The former general and defense minister said he thought Israel could not do anything to force a strategic change in Iran’s nuclear program, which the West suspects is aimed at producing atomic weapons.
    Tehran says it is for peaceful purposes and highlights Western silence over Israel, which maintains the Middle East’s only nuclear arsenal.

    As a member of Netanyahu’s security cabinet for two months, Mofaz was privy to deliberations on Iran’s nuclear program.

    He told Channel 2 television in a studio interview that any Israeli military action “can at the most delay it (Iran’s program) by about a year, and it can bring upon us a disastrous war.”
    Naming both Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, he said he was “very worried at what they are preparing.”

    He added: “I hope very much we don’t reach such a war because it would be a disaster.”

    Days after he quit the cabinet late in July in a dispute about military conscription policy, Mofaz, who heads the Kadima party, cautioned he would not back any Israeli military “adventures.”

    His comments echoed those of other former Israeli security officials who have spoken against any unilateral attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, with some saying such an assault could spur Tehran to speed up uranium enrichment.

    There has been an upsurge in rhetoric from Israeli politicians this month suggesting Israel might attack Iran’s nuclear facilities ahead of US presidential elections in November.

    Netanyahu is frustrated that the US has refused to back an attack and has been pushing for Western support for a bombing campaign.

    Cosmo is living in typical Zionists’ illusion. He post Zionist-Jewish Wikipedia to cover his ignorance about Hizbullah and Lebanon,

    Israeli Gen. Giora Eiland, former military adviser to Sharon and Olmert, admitted last year: “Israel does not know how to beat Hezbollah”.

    Robert Fisk wrote in British daily Independent on January 21, 2010: “Israeli government have been announcing that the only “army” of Lebanon is the Hizbollah. The Hizbollah claimed that the 2006 war with Israel was a “divine victory” – it didn’t feel that way to us in southern Lebanon at the time – yet even Israel admits it was a near-defeat for its own ill-trained soldiers“.

      Israel doesn’t know how to eradicate Hezbulla in a short war that doesn’t include a long occupation of Lebanon. Just like most armies in modern history that had to fight against a local guerrilla. Look at how long the best army in the world is in Afghanistan and they are still fighting. Hezbulla can’t defend Lebanon, The IDF can reach Beirut in three days. The Israeli air force can rain fire and bring Lebanon back to the stone ages whenever it wishes. Hezbulla will claim victory as long as they can continue to fire their rockets at civilian towns. You can be sure Israel’s ability to fire will still be much greater.
      Israel might not be able to make rocket attacks come to a complete stop with in a few weeks of war since all it takes is for one person to pick up a rocket stored in his house go to the back yard for 5 minutes launch it and then go back in to eat breakfest.

          ”The existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to all humanity”. They hate it when he says things like that and that’s why I like him so much.

    it is true that

    1. warfare inevitably involves some nastiness

    2. the technically advanced countries have not set a very good example

    nevertheless some people might think that a strategy aimed at bombing another country back to the stone age sounds like a war crime.

    isn’t it a bit paranoid to think of military matters in such stark terms?

    and perhaps just a tad inhumane?

    or are such thoughts just me, as usual, being too sentimental?

    concerning two other war crimes: the first was a thermobarbaric atrocity and the second a cynical swindle with costly consequences.

    Following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on August 2nd, 1990, on January 16th of 1991 the United States and Britain began an aerial bombing campaign of targets within Iraq. On 24th February the ground campaign commences which lasts 100 hours until on February 28th a horrendous war crime occurs.

    This crime is the slaughter of 150,000 Iraqi troops with fuel air bombs. These Iraqis are fleeing on a crowded highway from Kuwait to Basra. President George Herbert Walker Bush orders United States military aircraft and ground units to kill these surrendering troops, who are then bulldozed into mass unmarked graves in the desert, some of whom are still alive.

    President Bush then orders a cessation of hostilities. What was the significance of this slaughter and President Bush declaring the war over on this day? Well it was the day the, “Day of Purim,” fell on this year. This the day the Jews celebrate their victory over Ancient Babylon, now based within the borders of Iraq and a day when the Jews are encouraged to get bloody revenge against enemies, which Purim declares are basically all non-Jews.

    Of approximately the 697,000 American servicemen and women deployed to the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm, some 40,000 end up dead and a further 400,000 end up suffering from various maladies associated with what has become known as Gulf War Syndrome.
    It is subsequently discovered that the military obtained 800,000 chemical and biological protective suits from the Isratex Company of Rainelle, W.V., which were defective, and contained holes and tears, that can allow in sufficient biological or chemical material to kill the person wearing it. Isratex, which netted $44 million in defence contracts in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s to make these protective suits, declared bankruptcy in 1995. For committing this genocide on American soldiers, for nothing more than financial gain, this is how the United States judicial system dealt with the principals of Isratex.

    Abe Brin, the former president, receives four months detention, three years supervised release and a $4,000 fine. His brother, Yehudah Yoav Brin (who had been a fugitive until he was captured at JFK airport), receives six months plus one day in jail, two years supervised release and a $40,000 fine. Zvi Rosenthal, formerly the company’s production manager, has to serve six months home detention, three months probation and receives a $20,000 fine.

    The real reason for this war in Iraq is revealed in Victor Ostrovsky’s book, “The Other Side Of Deception,” in which he states on page 315,

    “What the Mossad really feared was that Iraq’s gigantic army, which had survived the Iran-Iraq war and was being supplied by the West and financed by Saudi Arabia, would fall into the hands of a leader who might be more palatable to the West and still be a threat to Israel.

    The first step was taken in November 1988, when the Mossad told the Israeli foreign office to stop all talks with the Iraqis regarding a peace front. At that time, secret negotiations were taking place between Israelis, Jordanians, and Iraqis under the auspices of the Egyptians and with the blessings of the French and the Americans. The Mossad manipulated it so that Iraq looked as if it were the only country unwilling to talk, thereby convincing the Americans that Iraq had a different agenda.

    By January 1989, the Mossad LAP (Israeli psychological warfare) machine was busy portraying Saddam as a tyrant and a danger to the world. The Mossad activated every asset it had, in every place possible, from volunteer agents in Amnesty International to fully bought members of the U.S. Congress. Saddam had been killing his own people, the cry went; what could his enemies expect? The gruesome photos of dead Kurdish mothers clutching their dead babies after a gas attack by Saddam’s army were real, and the acts were horrendous. But the Kurds were entangled in an all-out guerrilla war with the regime in Baghdad and had been supported for years by the Mossad, who sent arms and advisers to the mountain camps of the Barazany family; this attack by the Iraqis could hardly be called an attack on their own people…

    The media was supplied with inside information and tips from reliable sources on how the crazed leader of Iraq killed people with his bare hands and used missiles to attack Iranian cities. What they neglected to tell the media was that most of the targeting for the missiles was done by the Mossad with the help of American satellites. The Mossad was grooming Saddam for a fall, but not his own. They wanted the Americans to do the work of destroying that gigantic army in the Iraqi desert so that Israel would not have to face it one day on its own border. That in itself was a noble cause for an Israeli, but to endanger the world with the possibility of global war and the deaths of thousands of Americans was sheer madness.”

    we seem to be forgetting the most important element in winning this war between these two parties and that is the moral courage and other values that make braves. the warriors of Hizbullah are made to win and the morally delinquent army of israel is made to lose

    28 years of fighting the Israeli occupation in South Lebanon, Hezbollah’ first priority was the residents safety. It never tried to hold any town because it knew the catastrophic consequences of such an act. Instead, its focus was on making the occupation’s life a hell by attacking the checkpoints and military barracks of the Israelis and their agents of the South Lebanon Army using the guerrilla warfare.

    Throughout this period, we never heard of the fall of a single civilian as a result of the resistance activities.

    But the Syrian “revolutionaries”, in their savage fighting to topple the Syrian regime, don’t care about the fate of the innocent civilians. By, deliberately, transferring the battle to the populated centers, the rebels are, partly, responsible for the destruction of cities and the killing and the displacement of the people they pretend to protect. They are, clearly and unethically, willing to drag the Syrian regime to commit atrocities in order to obtain the long- awaited western military intervention …”
