Resistance is the One and Only Option

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

His Eminence, Sayyed Jaafar Fadlullah, delivered the two Friday prayer sermons at the Imamain Al-Hassanain Mosque on behalf of His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah who is recovering from a surgical procedure. The sermons were delivered on Thul-Hijja, 10th 1430 H. - November, 27th 2009. Several prominent religious scholars, dignitaries and thousands of believers attended the Jumu’a prayer. 

His Eminence talked in the first sermon about the moral and behavioral implications of piety and about the concept of Prophet Ibrahim's surrender to Allah, the Most Exalted.

Following is the text of the second sermon:


Maintaining the policy of settlement in Palestine

On the Palestinian level, the enemy's Prime Minister delivered a new message to the Arabs and Muslims, in the presence of the Egyptian President, saying that Jerusalem "is under Israeli sovereignty and not a settlement," thus hinting that it has nothing to do with any upcoming negotiations over the settlements, let alone being the capital of the supposed Palestinian state. Nevertheless, the Palestinian Authority is still talking about the necessity of freezing and stopping the colonization activities, at a time the enemy is cementing its colonization bases on the ground and throughout the West Bank.

Resistance is the only option

On another level, some Palestinian resistance factions are talking about commitments to reassure the enemy, at a time we believe that there is no option other than the policy of exhausting the enemy and picking out on its nerves, for occupation is never to be assured, and there is no way to drive the occupation out except by means of resistance that is the least of the duties of any people towards their land and fate.

Israeli control over Arab water

In the same context, we deem it extremely dangerous to engage the enemy's entity in the NATO's patrols in the Mediterranean Sea; a step that turns the occupier into a supervisor who oversees the movement of ships in and out the region, so as to execute its internationally supported piracy under the pretext of fighting terrorism and arms smuggling. We also warn NATO from placing itself at the front of enmity against the Arabs and Muslims through this step, or any other similar one, which is of no benefit to anyone.

Political stability in Lebanon

On the Lebanese level, everyone ought to seize the opportunity of the return of balance to the political arena to work together to resolve all the economic, social, and health problems besieging the Lebanese, and to lift the cover off those who mess with the people's food, medications, and means of living, and all those who have wasted the country's potentials throughout decades.

Enhancing subjective potentials  

At the same level, we confirm that all the Lebanese ought to live up to the big challenges that the enemy wasted no time in directing them towards Lebanon, not only as a country of resistance that has revolted against the occupation and proved its ability to achieve victory, but also as a model of diversity and joint living. Actually, all this requires enhancing Lebanon's ability to face any possible aggression, through its army and resistance forces, and consecrating the elements of Islamic and national unity, based on the unified values of the Divine messages; the values of dignity, love, and cooperation for the sake of the good.
