RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the Beirut suburb of Haret Hrayk’s Imamayn al-Hasanayn Mosque, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Ali Fadhlullah referred to the issue of Palestine and said, “Forgetting al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the right of return of the Palestinian people to their lands is part of the so-called ‘Deal of the Century.’”
Referring to a upcoming conference which will be held in Bahrain in regard to Palestine, the renowned Lebanese Shi’ah scholar said, “The people of the Arab and Islamic countries, as far as they know, have no political solution to the Palestinian issue, and with such issues, the lost rights of the people of Palestine cannot be resurrected.”
Hujjat al-Islam Fadhlullah said that the Palestinian people have suffered for many years and hunger has been imposed on them but they will never accept humiliation and added, “Therefore, they must not be treated like people who are looking for food – rather they demand freedom, dignity and the full realization of their rights in their own lands.”
He celebrated Liberation Day, named for the victory over the Zionist regime and the liberation of Lebanon from the Zionist regime and said, “This small country defeated the Zionist occupying regime despite all its strength and supporters, and forced them to retreat from the occupied territories of Lebanon without any condition. For the first time in its history, Israel suffered such a defeat.”
It is worthy to note that May 25th, 2000 was a brilliant day in Lebanon. It marks Liberation Day, the day which marks the peak of the years of struggle, resistance, and heroism wherein the people of Lebanon confronted the Israeli enemies and expelled the Zionist occupiers from all of the territory it had occupied in southern Lebanon, marking the end of the South Lebanon conflict (1985–2000) and a great victory by the Islamic Resistance against the Zionist regime.
