Resistance Prevented Turning Lebanon to Israeli Settlements!
Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem slammed on Friday UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s report over the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1559 and accused the UN chief of implementing Israeli decisions.
Sheikh Qassem pointed to a WikiLeaks cable showing how the United States and Israel worked behind the scenes and pressured Ban to contain UN probes into possible war crimes committed during the 2008-2009 Gaza war.
His eminence said the UN secretary general can’t be appointed without getting the American and Israeli approval. “Ban Ki-moon implements Israeli decisions and therefore, he’s not appropriate to give us recommendations how to act in Lebanon. He can’t give us theories on ways to protect Lebanon’s dignity and to preserve security and stability in the country,” he went on to say.
Sheikh Qassem expressed belief that Lebanon would be more stable than all world countries thanks to his army, people and resistance, if the US and other countries stop interfering in its affairs.
Sheikh Qassem also criticized Ban’s report for claiming that the problem resides in the Resistance’s arms. His eminence noted that Ban seems to have forgotten that Israel is the real obstacle in the region since a hundred years. “Israel caused the aggression, occupation, massacre and emigration. Therefore, it is the origin of all the problems in the region,” his eminence noted. “If Israel was not created, the Resistance wouldn’t have seen birth. The Resistance came as a reaction to prevent the turning of Lebanon to Israeli settlements.”
His eminence said that without the Resistance and its sacrifices, Lebanon would have become under Israeli tutelage. “We’re proud to belong to the Resistance. We’re not ashamed of this fact and we don’t feel concerned by all their unfair accusations because they are issued by Israel, the US and their advisors.”
