Since the victory of the Lebanese Resistance over Israel –consecutively in years 2000 and 2006, the world order scheme has been disturbed and disrupted. This disruption had started of course with the Iranian Revolution that marked the turning point in modern history. Before that Iran was part of the axis controlled by US since the fifties that grouped several Muslim countries including Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Iraq, KSA with the failed attempt at having the Egypt of Nasser join in. This Revolution in Iran with the creation of the Resistance in Lebanon has become a major player on the ground. It has materialized the will of people and their determination and hope to see Israel defeated, not just the hopes of Lebanese but that of all Arabs. The attempt at disarming the powerful victorious Resistance came as early as year 2005 with 1559 UN resolution that called for the disarmament of the Resistance.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrullah was clear when he said -in his last speech -that by disarmament were not meant the light weapons found in abundance in Lebanon within the hands of most factions; what was meant were the weapons threatening Israel like rockets and missiles. The other weapons threatening the internal local security were meant to stay in the hands of the various factions to be used in civil warfare and internal conflict. When implementing the 1559 Resolution failed, Israel and the world order resorted to war. The war that was supposed to last only one week had two goals beside freeing the two prisoners : to destroy the military capacity of Hizbullah and to destroy the infra structure so that people –dissatisfied- rally against the Resistance. After one month of war none of the goals were achieved, the prisoners were not delivered since the leader of the Resistance had said, that even if the whole world gathered together against the Resistance the prisoners shall not be delivered to the Israelis except in an exchange deal through a third party.
The weapons were not found and the Israelis were tricked and cheated into thinking that they had destroyed most of the long range missiles within the first 24 hours while the weapons were not touched. They continued the war thinking that the Resistance will fall soon short of the missiles that were falling inside the occupied territories. Also the people did not turn against the Resistance, on the contrary, people rallied to support the Resistance, they were ready to sacrifice and to assist each other and to back Hizbullah fully in their struggle .
Those who plotted and conspired were among politicians and certain officials affiliated to KSA or to the US administration and were a minority. The Resistance had really achieved victory, chased the Israelis out and defeated them, but the war continued through the International Court to prosecute the Resistance, through the sectarian warfare and media mobilization against the Resistance and –lately-through the assault on Syria by the fanatic thugs armed and funded by Qatar and KSA and trained in Turkey.
In all these places it is the same war against the Lebanese Resistance and its allies that is being launched targeting its strength and unity and its capacity to polarize the whole Arab and Muslim world that is the most threatening thing the world order ever confronted. The war on Syria is not different where what is sought is not of course democracy or the fall of a so called dictator. The three demands sent from Washington to the president of Syria -through an Arab mediator – were:
which -if met by Syria -will prevent any foreign interference within the country.
But president Bashshar did not surrender, he stood beside his country and his people and the Resistance as he always did. Previously in 2004 a similar deal was offered to Assad according to which, Syria will be given full authority over Lebanon and will be given the permission to bring Syrian troops to the Lebanese Southern region, to the Lebanese borders with the occupied territories, if it takes upon itself to disarm Hizbullah, but president Bashshar refused saying that the Resistance is more fit to defend the Lebanese borders and the Syrian army cannot take upon itself such a task.
Internally the weapons of the Resistance are still a subject of controversy on behalf of local politicians who are affiliated to the US administration and who work for a US/Israeli agenda, they want the Resistance to surrender its weapons while they introduce tons of weapons to arm the thugs of the Syrian opposition, they will not say what to replace the Resistance with and how to defend the land and provide security for the villagers living in the south since the Lebanese army is neither equipped nor trained nor ready to take upon itself this difficult task. They have no answer to this question, of how to defend the people and the land and it is the least of their worries; all they care about is carry on the wishes of their US masters.
No one can disarm the Resistance let alone finding the mysterious weapons; no one knows the secret of the strength of the Resistance of which the weapons are only a part and not even an essential part, it is the strength and determination and faith that brought the weapons and not some deal or exchange of some sort; and where the determination and faith came from is another mystery more difficult to elucidate than the mysterious weapons. But the truth of the matter is very easy, the truth of the matter is that some people in a certain locality refused to surrender body, heart and soul to the enemies who came to invade their country and occupy and exploit their land threatening their lives and that of their parents and children .
These are people who simply refused to undergo this treatment imposed by the enemy and decided to face it and defeat the purposes of their enemy however powerful he is. They decided to develop their own inner strength, strength that they drew from whatever is theirs, be it culture or religion or environment or nature. Wherever they found strength they went for it, they did not rely on anything alien or foreign, it was all home made, things that they understood and could handle and deal with and use fully to their benefit, things that were part of them and of their fathers and ancestors. When they drew this strength and this self reliance the weapons became a mere extension of what already existed and had always been but has unfolded –fully- and developed to a great extent and become within reach; it is the man’s deep faith in what he has and what he is and what he is capable of by God’s help. All the heritage of their Holy Religion was at their disposal, the life of their Prophet, the struggle of their Imam and Karbala’ the saga of Karbala,’ , of unequaled heroism and Resistance and incomparable dignity and courage. This is Hizbullah, it is all these high qualities and divine meanings that became embodied and actualized in people, in simple villagers and average citizens who have acquired this strength from the righteousness of their cause and their commitment to the deepest meaning of religion. This what turned the Resistance into something that cannot be defeated and this is the mightiest of weapons that the enemy can neither find nor acquire.
