Hezbullah Chief Praises Khamenei; Says U.S. Seeks to 'Hijack' Arab Revolts


Were protests along the Golan Heights on Sunday, during which Israeli troops opened fire on Palestinians seeking to cross from Syria, a sign that the U.S. seeks to 'hijack the Arab Revolutions'? According to this item from Iran's state-run Kayhan, Hezbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah spent Sunday praising Iran and the protesters, while omitting the likelihood that the Syrian regime staged the protests to deflect attention from its massacre of peaceful protesters in their own country.

BEIRUT: On Monday, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, secretary general of Hezbullah, saluted the foresight and decisiveness of the leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. He also praised those who courageously gathered on the 44th anniversary of Naksa Day along the border of the occupied Golan Heights.


“We must stand with dignity and great appreciation for the Palestinians and these young people who gathered yesterday, and their insistence on confrontation,” Nasrallah said in a speech at the opening of a conference on Ayatollah Khamenei.


Nasrallah described Ayatollah Khamenei as a "unique personality," saying that people in the region should be taught more about why he holds such an eminent place.


“We find ourselves in front of a great and exceptional personality who is criticized - even in Iran. Our responsibility is to introduce this great Imam to the nation, This is the very important and sensitive mission of this conference,” he added.


Nasrallah touched on some of the regional issues that Ayatollah Khamenei has had the "strategic vision" to predict the unpredictable.


“In 1996, we [members of Hezbullah] were told not to bother ourselves and that there was no need to sacrifice our blood. But there was one man who called on us to raise our concerns and continue our Jihad and resistance on the basis that an Israeli-Syrian settlement would not be executed. In late 1999, Imam Khamenei told us that our victory in Lebanon was very, very close - much closer than we might expect. This was contrary to all the analysis and information at the time,” Nasrallah said. “In the early days of the July 2006 war, we received a message from Imam Khamenei that we would definitely be victorious and emerge as an undefeated power after the war,” he went on to say.


The Hezbullah secretary general said that after events of September 11, Ayatollah Khamenei said "not to be worried, that this was the beginning of America’s collapse and that when they entered Iraq and Afghanistan, it would be the beginning of their end. … “He said that when the U.S. finds itself unable to protect its interests through regimes in the region or through armies and fleets, and becomes obliged to deploy all of its fleets to the region, this would be a sign of weakness.”


The Hezbullah chief went on to say that Ayatollah Khamenei was the only leader during the confrontation with the U.S. over its war for a new Middle East, "that offered the reasoning, wisdom and courage when we couldn't understand many aspects of this war - which is even the case now. … Imam Khamenei believes that the Zionist regime is moving toward its demise, and that its collapse will happen soon. … He believes that peace and compromise with the Zionist regime will lead nowhere. He also believes and that what is happening in Palestine and elsewhere in the region demonstrates that the Palestinian nation will continue to resist the Zionist regime and will never accept concessions."


"When we compare Imam Khamenei's forecast about Israel with the conditions dominating the region, and when we consider Lebanon's success in its 33-day war and the success of the Palestinians in the Gaza war, we realize that God willing, the demise and collapse of the Zionist regime is imminent, and that it will take place in the near future," the Hezbullah leader added.   



Beyond praising the Palestinians who protested in the Golan Heights on Sunday, Nasrallah accused Washington of seeking to hijack the Arab revolutions.


On Sunday, in Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights, Zionist troops opened fire as demonstrators sought to push through the mined ceasefire line, which had been reinforced with several rows of barbed wire to block access to a fence. Damascus said 23 protesters were killed.


“We honor Palestinians who gathered at the borders of the Golan Heights on Sunday in a clear message of determination,” Nasrallah said. “What happened on the Golan Heights yesterday on the anniversary of the Naksa reveals that the U.S. administration wants to hijack the Arab revolutions,” Nasrallah said. “What happened also demonstrates Washington’s absolute commitment to Israel’s security,” he said. “This is Washington, which talks about human rights and freedom,” he added.
