Nasrallah slams Arabs for arming Syria rebels, but not Gaza

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah slammed on Monday the Arab countries that “are sending arms to Syria rebels but have not sent one bullet to Gaza ” and mocked Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani’s comments in Cairo.

In a televised speech via video link on the fifth day of Ashura, Nasrallah said Arab nations should be arming Gaza fighters instead of focusing on mediation between it and the Israeli enemy”.

Arab FMs met on Saturday at the headquarter of the Arab League in Cairo to discuss the Israeli assaults on Gaza.

Nasrallah said that he wants Hamas to be enabled “to continue to fight Israel and launch missiles into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and destroy many Israeli military vehicles.”

Nasrallah credited Iran and Syria for Hamas’ military capabilities

“Iran and Syria’s contribution to Gaza are apparent in this domain,” he said

Nasrallah  slammed Qatari PM’s comment during the Arab FMs’ meeting in Cairo , and said “there are still heroes and wolfs among Arabs, and if he considers himself a coward, he should not include the rest of the Arabs in this classification”.

Nasrallah said many governments, politicians, and journalists in the region and internationally have turned into coward “sheep” in the last 60 years since Israel’s occupation of Palestine, as many of them have let down Palestine and Lebanon, leaving them to face their own destiny with blood.

“Wolfs are going to shape the history of the region, similar to what they have done through their resistance in Lebanon and Gaza,” stressed Nasrallah.

The Qatari PM reportedly said “they (the Israelis) are not wolves, but most of us are sheep”.

Nasrallah concluded his speech by saying that “Iran, Syria and Hezbollah will not abandon Gaza despite differences of opinion with its leaders. A possible reference to the reports claiming that Israel  is colluding  with Syria in  punishing Hamas for opposing the Syrian regime.

The 20-month uprising in Syria against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime has sparked a growing rift between it and Hamas.

The Hamas Movement which runs Gaza quietly moved its offices from Syria and evacuated most of its members as soon as the peaceful demonstrations turned into an armed rebellion. The dispute with the Syrian regime went public when a news presenter on Syrian television accused Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal of having “sold out the Palestinian resistance” after he expressed his support for the Syrian uprising.

    we slam you and Iran for supporting such brutal Syrian regime that not oppressed Lebanon for 30 years but also its own people. We slam you for arming and fighting alongside a regime that has taken the freedom of Lebanese and destroyed every aspect of lebanon. They killed so many lebanese while supporting them. they destoryed our economy jailed our freedom fighters and resistance fighters. how dare you criticize the arabs for supporting FSA. When did you really care about Palestinians other then when it suits your and Iran Interests? how dare you even speak in Arabic you farsi speaking ape..

    Although I do not agree with the man politically on the Lebanese interior policies but in this case he is right when he says that Arabs are arming the Syrian opposition but not Gaza. Although we have to admit that sending arms to Gaza is pretty challlenging while sending arms to the syrian opposition is almost granted.

      In 1977, Israel arranged a $1 billion arms-for-oil deal around Operation Flower, a joint Israeli-Iranian project to build a nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missile. And like their American counterparts, certain Israelis also seem to have been part of the corrupt nexus through which top Iranian political and military leaders were enriched through arms sale commissions. “When the Israelis decide to change their policy,” one top State Department official told a reporter in the mid- 1 970s, “the first place the Israeli jet touches down is Tehran. Moshe Dayan is in and out of there quite frequently.”

      The Nuke plant of Bushar in Iran was built by USA . You may understand that if two countries jointly make nuke plant  and nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missile then they cant be each others enemy rather these party have strong bond among them. Now if they outwardly attack each other BY MOUTH then please apply the theory of political smoke screen and try to understand the dirty game

      The Arabs are not really helping the Syrian mujaheddin as the way they should. The Bashar Al-Qaeda regime used to be the biggest military aid receiver from Saudi Arabia even after Hafez did the hama massacre in 1982. It was the Saudi regime who helped Iran and America against the sunni regime in Iraq. All these Arab leaders are directly or Indirectly subservient to the west and are pro Iranian. The Saudi kingdom is facing a huge pressure from the majority sunnis in Saudi Arabia therefore they need to send some arms but so far we have seen the Mujaheddin are mugging arms from the Shabiha. But the Nasrallat accusation against the saudi regime helps the kingdom look good as if they are really helping the Syrian resistance.

    … Israeli interests in non-Arab Iran became prominent as early as the 1 950s, when Mossad, Israel’s foreign intelligence agency, cooperated with the CIA in establishing the Shah’s secret police, SAVAK. A 1979 CIA report on Mossad notes that:
    The main purpose of the Israeli relationship with Iran was the development of a pro-Israel and anti-Arab policy on the part of Iranian officials. Mossad has engaged in joint operations with SAVAK over the years since the late 1950s. Mossad aided SAVAK activities and supported the Kurds in Iraq. The Israelis also regularly transmitted to the Iranians intelligence reports on Egypt’s activities in the Arab countries, trends and developments in Iraq, and Communist activities affecting Iran.”

    We may ask from where the Shias are inspired being anti Arab bigot, we find the answaer in the SHia holy book. Here is some of them

    “There will be nothing left between us and the Arabs, except slaughter.” (Baqir Al-Majlisi, Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 349 and Al-Numani, Al-Ghaiba, p. 155)

    “Al-Muntazar (the Awaited One, meaning Shia’s 12 imam) will walk amongst the Arabs and kill them.” (Baqir Al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 318)

    “Fear the Arabs because there will be very bad news for them, which is that none from amongst them will come out with Al-Qa’im (Shia’s Mahdi).” (Baqir Al-Majlisi, Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 333, and Al-Numani, Al-Ghaiba, p. 254) This Shia narration is warning the Arabs of bad things that will happen

    Well the Shia religion was invented by a Jew named Abdullah Ibn Al Saba.

    Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon told the Washington Post in May 1982, justifying Israeli arms sales to Tehran, “Iraq is Israel’s enemy and we hope that diplomatic relations between us and Iran will be renewed as in the past.” Four months later he told a Paris press conference, “Israel has a vital interest in the continuing of the war in the Persian Gulf, and in Iran’s victory.” Such views were not Sharon’s alone; Prime Ministers Itzhak Shamir (Likud) and Shimon Peres (Labor) shared them too.

    One other consideration, rarely articulated, also swayed successive Israeli leaders: money. According to Gary Sick, an expert on Iran who served on the NSC under Presidents Ford, Carter and Reagan, “Israel acknowledged that arms sales were good business. One out of 10 Israeli workers is employed in arms-related production; military items constitute more than a quarter of Israel’s industrial exports.” The distinguished Israeli defense correspondent Ze’ev Schiff states that Israel’s pro-lran policy has been “guided by a ravenous hunger for profit rather than by strategic considerations…”

    Israel have been arming Iran for decades

    Israel lost no time supplying the new Khomeini regime with small quantities of arms, even after the seizure of the U.S. embassy. The first sales included spare parts for U.S.-made F-4 Phantom jets; a later deal in October 1980 included parts for U.S.-made tanks. Israel informed Washington, only “after the fact, when they were far down the line and right into the middle of the thing,” according to a former State Department official. To Begin’s ex post facto request for approval, “the answer was instant, unequivocal and negative,” writes Gary Sick, the Iran expert on Carter’s NSC.
    The White House was in fact aghast to find that its embargo had been flatly violated. “We learned much to our dismay,” Brzezinski noted later, “that the Israelis had been secretly supplying American spare parts to the Iranians without much concern for the negative impact this was having on our leverage with the Iranians on the hostage issue.” Secretary of State Edmund Muskie demanded that Israel cease its shipments; Prime Minister Begin promised to comply. In fact, however, the supply line stayed open without Washington’s approval, carrying tank parts and ammunition.

    How Israel supply arms to Iran: 

    US administration could rarely prove what it suspected. Israel did its best to disguise these arms shipment shipments by using layers of foreign brokers to cloak their source. Notes Ha’aretz correspondent Yo’av Karny “The cloak of secrecy that surrounds Israeli arms exports is so tight that one can compare it to the technique for smuggling hard drugs.” When caught in the act, Israeli officials maintained they were simply selling domestic arms, not embargoed U.S. weapons. “Whenever we would get word of shipments,” one American official explained, “the State Department would raise the issue with Israel, and we would get the standard lecture and promises that there were no U.S. weapons involved.”

    That standard lecture was clearly false, though Washington may have lacked usable evidence to prove it. U.S.-made weapons were very much for sale. On 24 July 1981, Israeli arms dealer Ya’acov Nimrodi-later to play a vital role in the arms-for-hostages negotiations-apparently signed a deal with Iran’s Ministry of National Defense to sell $135,842,000 worth of arms, including Lance missiles, Copperhead shells and Hawk missiles. A sale of such magnitude must have had Israeli government acquiescence. Nimrodi’s close personal friend Ariel Sharon, a wartime comrade from the 1948 struggle, likely kept tabs on, if he did not direct, the private dealer’s sales with Iran.

    Between Israel and USA it is Israel who is more interested in Arming Iran !!!

    In the Year 1981 David Kimche, director general of Israel’s foreign ministry, apparently approached Secretary of State Alexander Haig and his counselor Robert McFarlane to discuss proposed Israeli shipments of $10 million to $15 million in spare parts to “moderates” in Iran. Kimche may have been referring to a contract to supply 360 tons of tank spares and ammunition-worth about $28 million, twice his estimate-to Iran by air via Cyprus. But Haig denies that he ever approved any such shipments, a claim strengthened by the admission of Israeli officials that they went ahead based only on Haig’s alleged failure to disapprove. In any case, the shipments in question paled beside what Nimrodi was then arranging.

    In November 1981, Israeli Defense Minister Sharon visited Washington, shopping for approval of similar arms sales. His U S. counterpart Caspar Weinberger, flatly turned him down. Sharon then went to Haig, hoping for acquiescence from the State Department. Again, McFarlane handled many of the discussions with Sharon and Kimche; this time Haig unequivocally opposed any violation of the embargo.
    In numerous discussions with Israeli officials thereafter, administration decision makers flatly refused requests for permits to ship U.S. arms to Iran, and strenuously discouraged Israel from sending its own weapons to the radical Khomeini regime. Undersecretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger at one point summoned the Israeli ambassador to protest his country’s continued sales-only to be assured that they had been stopped. And officials who ran Operation Staunch, the project to block Iran’s access to the world arms market, were never discouraged from extending their efforts to Israeli-linked deals.

    Huge amount of Arms going to Iran via Israel !!!
     
    In 1979-80, Israel pursued its policy to sell arms to Iran anyway, in flat violation of its arms re-export agreements with the Pentagon. In a May 1982 interview with the Washington Post, Sharon claimed that Israeli shipments had been cleared “with our American colleagues” months earlier and that details of all the shipments were supplied to the administration. Later that year, Israel’s ambassador Moshe Arens declared that Israel’s arms sales were cleared at “almost the highest levels” in Washington, “inconsequential” in size, and designed to undermine the Khomeini regime. Both times the State Department flatly contradicted the Israelis’ claims. At least Sharon and Arens were more credible than Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, who declared after the Irangate scandal broke in 1986 that “Israel’s policy is not to sell arms to Iran.”

    All the standard propaganda themes and practices were in place. Israel would continue seeking approval for arms sales on the basis of their potential political leverage, but would ship arms willy-nilly while falsely claiming Washington’s sanction.
    And those shipments would continue to be enormous in size, estimated by experts at the Jaffee Institute for Strategic Studies in Tel Aviv at $500 million in value from 1980-83. Other arms market experts have put the total value at more than S500 million a year, including aircraft parts, artillery and ammunition.

    Anecdotes abound in the world press relating to Israeli sales to Iran:

    * In March 1982, the New York Times cited documents indicating that Israel had supplied half or more of all arms reaching Tehran in the previous 18 months, amounting to at least $100 million in sales.
    * Foreign intelligence sources told Aerospace Daily in August 1982 that Israel’s support was “crucial” to keeping Iran’s air force flying against Iraq.
    * An alleged former CIA agent reportedly visited Israel in 1982, met with the chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces and head of military intelligence, and “struck a deal with them involving the transfer of weapons and equipment, captured by Israel during the Lebanon war, to Iran.”
    * Israeli sources told Newsweek that “they sold the Iranians much of the light weaponry and ammunition that the Israeli army had captured during its invasion of Lebanon; subsequently, they sold overhauled jet engines, spare parts for American-made M-48 tanks, ammunition and other hardware-S100 million worth in 1983 alone.”
    * Newsweek also reported that after an Iranian defector landed his F-4 Phantom jet in Saudi Arabia in 1984, intelligence experts determined that many of its parts had originally been sold to Israel, and had then been re-exported to Tehran in violation of U.S. Iaw.
    * In 1984 and early 1985, a single one of Israel’s many European brokers, based in Sweden, reportedly shipped hundreds of tons of TNT and other explosives to Iran, often by way of Argentina, worth 500 million kroner.
    * The Milan weekly Panorama reported that Israel had sold the Khomeini regime 45,000 Uzi submachine guns, antitank missile launchers, missiles, howitzers and aircraft replacement parts. “A large part of the booty from the PLO during the 1982 Lebanon campaign wound up in Tehran,” the magazine claimed.
    * Manila newspapers have reported since the Irangate scandal broke that former armed forces chief of staff Gen. Fabian Ver, a crony of Ferdinand Marcos, supplied phony end user certificates to allow Israeli intermediaries to divert U.S. arms to Iran in 1984.

    * An alleged former CIA agent reportedly visited Israel in 1982, met with the chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces and head of military intelligence, and “struck a deal with them involving the transfer of weapons and equipment, captured by Israel during the Lebanon war, to Iran.”
    * Israeli sources told Newsweek that “they sold the Iranians much of the light weaponry and ammunition that the Israeli army had captured during its invasion of Lebanon; subsequently, they sold overhauled jet engines, spare parts for American-made M-48 tanks, ammunition and other hardware-S100 million worth in 1983 alone.”
    * Newsweek also reported that after an Iranian defector landed his F-4 Phantom jet in Saudi Arabia in 1984, intelligence experts determined that many of its parts had originally been sold to Israel, and had then been re-exported to Tehran in violation of U.S. Iaw.
    * In 1984 and early 1985, a single one of Israel’s many European brokers, based in Sweden, reportedly shipped hundreds of tons of TNT and other explosives to Iran, often by way of Argentina, worth 500 million kroner.
    * The Milan weekly Panorama reported that Israel had sold the Khomeini regime 45,000 Uzi submachine guns, antitank missile launchers, missiles, howitzers and aircraft replacement parts. “A large part of the booty from the PLO during the 1982 Lebanon campaign wound up in Tehran,” the magazine claimed.
    * Manila newspapers have reported since the Irangate scandal broke that former armed forces chief of staff Gen. Fabian Ver, a crony of Ferdinand Marcos, supplied phony end user certificates to allow Israeli intermediaries to divert U.S. arms to Iran in 1984.

    Please note this arming Iran is still going on and Israel is taking full advantage of US embargo on Iran so it is Israel who is monopolizing the business by buying arms from USA and then selling it to Iran. Now tell us why Israel and Iran should attack each other ? 

    Its the Sunni mujaheddin who will attack the Israeli stooge for a just cause inshallah.

    How can a so-called “spiritual leader” be angry ALL THE F***ING TIME?! What kind of spiritual leader is that? And what kind of people can possibly follow such an abomination? Always angry. Always upset. Always unhappy. Always complaining about this or that misery. Always preaching violence. Always frowning. Never satisfied—with anything. Never smiling—except in contempt or in sarcasm. Always shouting. Always wiggling that ugly index. Always. No exception. Any day. Whatsoever.

    How can you look at this perpetually angry Tasmanian Devil and say this thing is, proudly, MY spiritual leader?! What kind of spiritual leader is that?!! Go lookup “spiritual leader” in the goddamn dictionary.
