Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday during a forum entitled “Declaration of Al-Quds as the capital of Palestine, the Arabs and Muslims,” which took place in Resalat hall, Beirut, that Al-Quds is a unique case as it is a holy city for Muslims and Christians all over the world.
“Every Palestinian, Arab, Muslim, and Christian has a national, popular, and ethical responsibility towards Al-Quds. It needs from all of us seriousness and action,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
“We are not responsible for the occupation of Al-Quds, but we bear the responsibility of the continuation of Al-Quds under the occupation until today, and every faction and people should be prepared for questioning in the Judgement Day for what he did towards Al-Quds liberation,” His eminence indicated.
Negotiations Choice Doomed to Fail
“There are extended efforts to declare Al-Quds as the eternal capital of the Jewish people and about that there is a bill in the Knesset,” Sayyed Nasrallah said explaining that “Al-Quds was the center of conflict in the region throughouthistory and will remain so in the future.” He pointed out that “the Sykes-Picot agreement divided the region based on the notion of controlling Al-Quds and for the same end, the New Middle East scheme was developed and thus future schemes will be put in order to liquidate the Palestinian cause.” Thus negotiations efforts are doomed to fail. “The choice of negotiations to return Jerusalem to the Palestinians is not realistic because Israel considers the city to be its permanent capital something being adopted by the West and this is what US President Barack Obama indicated in his ‘holy commitment’ towards Israel’s security.”
“Tell me where Al-Quds will be, I’ll tell you where the region would be,” His eminence said as to the fact that the fate of Al-Quds and the whole region is undivided.
Sayyed Nasrallah warned that Al-Quds is being Judaized and desecrated by Israeli settlers, calling for action and seriousness from everybody to defend Al-Quds and confront enemy efforts to Judaize it.
Major Changes Signs Al-Quds Liberation is Closer
Major regional changes, which the Resistance had a great role in creating, as well as global ones, make us believe that the liberation of Al-Quds is closer than ever, Hezbollah Secretary General announced. “The resistance’s achievements in Palestine, Iraq and the significant changes in Iraq, Egypt and within the Zionists entity indicate that Al-Quds’ liberation is near.” His eminence added that the firmness of the resistance axis from Iran to Al-Quds makes the goal of liberating the holy city a realistic one.
“We have emerged from maze and the signs of this became clear after the liberation of the south of Lebanon in 2000 and the victory of the resistance in Gaza at the end of 2008 as well as the victory of the resistance in Lebanon in July 2006. All these indications imply that we have entered the time of victories,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
‘He Who Abandons Us Won’t Attain Victory’
The secretary general concluded that Imam Hussein bin Ali (AS) said one day that “he who follows us, shall become a martyr, and he who doesn’t will not attain the blessed victory”, and today the resistance heroes say to the whole world that “he who follows us is victor, and he who doesn’t will not attain the conquest.”
