'Arab FMs Gave Israel Until Monday to Achieve Mission'


"02/01/2009 Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah reiterated on Friday his belief that the Palestinian faithful Resistance would achieve victory against the Zionist occupation in its deadliest offensive against Palestinians in the Gaza strip. His eminence criticized the Arab leaders for their stance over the aggression, calling on them, at least, to let their people express themselves freely and declare solidarity with their Palestinian brothers.

Sayyed Nasrallah was speaking through a large screen as he marked the sixth night of Ashoura at the Sayyed Shouhadaa complex in Beirut's southern suburb (Dahiyeh).

His eminence criticized some Arab leaders who are colluding with the Zionists and betting on wiping the Resistance movements out of the region. "Those who think that events similar to the 2006 July War and Gaza war could destroy the resistance in Lebanon and Palestine are definitely wrong," Sayyed Nasrallah asserted.

The Resistance leader pointed to the Arab official stance over the deadliest Israeli offensive against the Palestinians in the Gaza strip. "The offensive was launched on Saturday, they met only at the level of foreign ministers on Wednesday, just five days following the aggression," Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out. "It is shameful that the Arab foreign ministers met five days after the attack on Gaza, and still we have seen no results," his eminence added.

"All what they were able to achieve was forming a delegation to go to the UN Security Council next Monday. This is really shameful," Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out, wondering about the reasons of delaying "action" until Monday. "Why wait until Monday for an Arab delegation to go to UN Security Council? Why didn't it go to the UNSC on the same day, on Wednesday or on Thursday or on Friday or on Saturday? Why wait until Monday?" his eminence asked, before answering. "They waited until Monday to give Israel more time to achieve the mission," his eminence declared.

Sayyed Nasrallah, meanwhile, emphasized that, if the Israelis failed to achieve the recommended mission by Monday, "then this doesn't mean that they won't be given another delay." His eminence recalled that the same thing happened in the July war "when they gave Israel delays for weeks and weeks; yet, Israel failed to achieve the mission and was defeated."

"Bargaining on Gaza's surrender will fail," Sayyed Nasrallah announced. His eminence went on to express disapproval of the Arab general behavior towards Gaza. "If the Arab official positions reflect their population’s views, then why are the police deployed in the streets to forbid demonstrations?" his eminence wondered, calling on Arab leaders to let people express themselves freely. "But those rulers cannot tolerate the call of crowds requesting their leaders to shoulder their responsibilities," Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out.......

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the Israelis are reluctant in launching a ground offensive into Gaza because of their experience in Lebanon ."Everybody in Israel senses reluctance in the much-talked about ground offensive," Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out. "This is one of the repercussions of the 2006 July War," his eminence explained. "It is true that there is a bloody scene in Gaza, but there is on the other hand hesitance in Israel," he noted.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that what had been taking place in Gaza since Saturday was identical to what happened in Lebanon during the July 2006 war launched by the Zionist entity against the country....... "
