Fadlullah: We notice an American pursuit to revive the files that aim at inciting strife in the Islamic reality
His Eminence, the Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, warned from an American pursuit to revive, inside Lebanon and at the level of the region, a few files that aim at inciting strife in the Islamic reality, calling the scholars and the nation's vibrant forces not to slacken and to get set to face this scheme. He also warned that the big project that aim at fragmenting the nation is still being considered even by the new American Administration that is seeking to market a few titles that have to do with its need for inciting strife between the Sunnis and Shiites. His Eminence called for taking advantage of the state of mutual understanding Lebanon is witnessing nowadays, warning from the suggestions of a few foreign ambassadors in the backstage who consider that what is going on does not exceed being a truce that actually overlooks a big war, emphasizing on the necessity of not falling for these intimidations.
His Eminence received a delegation from the Administrative Board and the Board of Trustees of the Muslims Scholars Gathering, headed by Sheikh Ahmad Al-Zein. The delegation visited the Sayyed to check on his health, and they went through the general Islamic situations.
His Eminence addressed the delegation warning from any political, cultural, or practical slackening in terms of the current situations, pointing out that the current scene actually hides future developments and situations that the nation's vibrant and active forces ought to be aware of. Moreover, we notice an American pursuit to revive, inside Lebanon and at the level of the region, a few files that aim at inciting strife in the Islamic reality particularly.
He added: We believe that the American Administration will work at later stages to market a few titles that have to do with its need for inciting strife between the Sunnis and Shiites. Therefore, the scholars ought to be quite ready to face all that and to take prompt actions to deter the attempts of the nation's enemies, for the big project that aim at fragmenting the nation is still put on the table by the Americans who find no problem in the ongoing bloodshed in the nation, starting from Yemen, extending to Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and reaching Iraq. They also find no problem in the destabilized situation inside Turkey, as a result of the tense relation with the Kurds, not to mention the continuous attempts to sabotage the Iranian internal situation.
He continued: Therefore, we ought not to fall before the current situation, for as much as we believe that the arrogant project has suffered from several setbacks in different locations in the region, we must keep in mind that this project is reviving itself via new means and methods and trying to stand on its feet, once again and seeking to control the region at the political and security levels, with the direct cooperation of the Zionist entity. Actually, this entity finds that the shortest way to achieve its destructive goals in the nation is via inciting sectarian strife that moves from one place to another, and making use of other titles, be they tribal, regional or others.
His Eminence called on the Lebanese to make use of the current mutual understanding and prevent others, especially a few foreign ambassadors, from undermining it by bringing up titles of disagreement and from creating tense ambiences here and there, and suggesting in the backstage that Lebanon is going through a truce, whether internally or at the level of its relations with Syria, and that it is overlooking an internal war or that a dangerous Israeli war will be conducted against it; which represent different methods of intimidations and deceit that the popular and political parties ought not to fall for.
His Eminence also received the Iranian chargé d'affaires in Lebanon, Meer Mas'oud Husayniyyan, accompanied by the Iranian Cultural Counselor, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Ra'is Zada, and they went through a number of general affairs.
His Eminence, Sayyed Fadlullah, also received the First Vice-Governor of the Central Bank of Lebanon, Sayyed Raed Charafeddine, accompanied by his mother, Mrs. Rabab Charafeddine, and his father, Sayyed Hussein Charafeddine.
