Hezbollah Secretary General Syed Hasan Nasrallah noted on Monday that the Israeli enemy was forced to change its tone and to seek pacification on its northern border,Â warning that the choice of war has major and dangerous implications and it is not limited to Israel. While emphasizing that the resistance is strong because it is embraced by its people, the thing that frightens Israel, According to Shiite News Correspondent,Syed Nasrallah addressed Israeli President Shimon Peres who declared Israel’s failure and that it pulled out from Lebanon for good, saying: â€œYou will never return to Lebanon.â€ Syed Nasrallah was speaking through a large TV screen to mark the Prophetâ€™s birthday as a part of the Week of Islamic Unity in the Syed As-Shouhadaaâ€™ complex at the southern suburb of Beirut. Syed Nasrallah started his speech by stressing the importance of Islamic unity given the current situation. His eminence noted that points of disagreement between Muslims can be turned into points of unity, emphasizing that there should be no reason for the Muslim to be divided when there is a willingness for them to be united. Turning into politics, Syed Nasrallah noted that the Israeli enemy is indifferent to the one billion Muslims in the world and is seeking to include occupied Jerusalem within its territory and to include the Muslimsâ€™ holy sites in a so-called Israeli national heritage. â€œAll this happens amid an Islamic and Arab silence only violated by minor denouncement statements,â€ his eminence said, adding that nobody is actually defending the Muslimsâ€™ holy sites except the Palestinians who are falling victims day after another. â€œIsrael doesn’t expect any response from the Arab street nor from Arab governments. It rather takes into account the minority found in Lebanon and Palestine as to peoples; and in Iran and Syria as to governments,â€ Syed Nasrallah said.Â â€œThis resistant minority has perceived its strength and refused to surrender,â€ his eminence emphasized, adding that it doesnâ€™t fear death but rather wants to live with honor and dignity. While calling on the nation to assume its responsibilities over whatâ€™s happening in Palestine, Syed Nasrallah said that the entire Arab Nation has to thank Syria and Iran for standing by the resistance and to emulate these two nations. â€œIt is unacceptable to doubt Iran’s intentions that aim at intervening to support the Palestinian cause,â€ his eminence stressed. Hezbollah Secretary General pointed to the change in the Israeli â€œdialectâ€ following his latest speech believed to change the strategic balances in the conflict with the Israeli enemy. Addressing Israeli President Shimon Peres who declared Israel’s failure and that it pulled out from Lebanon for good, his eminence said: â€œYou will never return to Lebanon.â€ “You have exited Lebanon once and for all, and I tell you, you will never be able to come back to Lebanon.” â€œWhen Israel was confronted with a stern and unyielding rhetoric, it was forced to change its tone and to seek pacification on its northern border,â€ Syed Nasrallah said, noting that even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now saying that his country is unwilling to launch a war against any state. â€œThey noticed that there is a new atmosphere in the region.â€ His eminence noted that what has been said in the Martyr Leadersâ€™ Day was only a part, stressing that the Resistance has yet many surprises that will be uncovered at the appropriate time. â€œThe Israelis know very well that everything we have said can be achieved,â€ his eminence added.Â “When we threaten Israel, we mean what we say, andÂ Israel knows quite well that every word said would not have been iterated had there not been absolute conviction in the possibility of implementing and realizing it. What we have said is only part, not all, as we harbor surprises.” The Resistance leader, meanwhile, said that the choice of war has major and dangerous implications and it is not limited to Israel. â€œThe resistance is strong because it is embraced by its people, the thing that frightens Israel,â€ his eminence pointed out. Syed Nasrallah expected that the upcoming stage would be marked by a sort of â€œpressureâ€ on the Lebanese government but hailed the latterâ€™s stance as well as President Michel Sleimanâ€™s one as excellent. In the same context, Syed Nasrallah rejected claims that the call to re-vivify the national dialogue roundtable came in harmony with American pressures. Hezbollah Secretary General said the Damascus summit is believed to be a sufficientÂ response to the American messages to Syria. â€œAll claims about a divergence between Syria, Iran and the Resistance in Lebanon are mere lies,â€ Syed Nasrallah asserted, calling for an official defiance in the face of the Israeli pressures and threats. According to Syed Nasrallah, the Israeli enemy will continue to collect data from Lebanon. His eminence recalled that the Israeli enemy has never suspended its security war against Lebanon through its agents, emphasizing that the Israeli is seeking through this form of war to collect data on the Resistanceâ€™s arms by quantity and quality. â€œIf we prevent the Israeli enemy of reaching the data heâ€™s seeking to collect, we delay the war,â€ Syed Nasrallah said, adding that one of the main characteristics of the Resistance is its â€œsecrecy.â€ His eminence turned into the issue of agents and spying networks operating in Lebanon. Addressing the agents and all those who can be induced, Syed Nasrallah said: â€œWhat you are doing is not only a crime against some people but a treason of a whole nation.â€ His eminence called on them to take lessons from past experiences. Syed Nasrallah renewed his call to execute the death sentences against those who have betrayed their nation. Yet, his eminence called on those agents to return to their nation and ask for Godâ€™s pardon, warning that more agents would be uncovered in the upcoming stage.Â “I have said before, and I repeat today, yes to the death sentence for these spies. They should hang, and not just rot in jail for life.” Hezbollah Secretary General concluded his speech byÂ warning the Lebanese government against sharing telecommunications information with the United States, saying any such move would be tantamount to collaborating with the Israeli enemy. â€œWe hope that no party is involved with the US embassy,â€ Syed Nasrallah said. â€œOtherwise, we will need a determinant stance.â€ “This is dangerous as it is a violation of Lebanon’s sovereignty, but its real danger lies elsewhere,” his eminence said. “Because of the strategic relationship and unity between the United States and Israel … any information gathered through such requests, like spy rings, reaches Israelis. In other words, it is giving Israel information by proxy on a silver platter, and we hope there are no Lebanese citizens collaborating with the US embassy in the matter,” his eminence added.
