The Annual American Terror Report
All attempts to boost Americaís image through various media means
are doomed to fail, for it will not be able to change its ugly face or
to erase the horrific memories it implanted in the minds of the Arabs,
the Muslims and all peace loving nations.
Asked in his
weekly seminar the following question: Until
when would this report continue to act as a means of intimidating
those who oppose the US policies in the region?
Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah said:
One of the most
obvious examples of political terror in our contemporary world is
demonstrated by the US Department of State annual report
concerning international terrorism. This report that tries to list
events in a factual manner that serves the American political and
strategic interests has turned into a tool to intimidate the
states that still oppose the American policies in the region,
especially the states that still adopt the legitimate rights of
the Palestinian people, like Syria and Iran.
But if the previous
reports focused on Syria and Iran to drive them to change their
stances towards the Palestinian cause, the last report aims at
forcing them to take part in the American game in Iraq. The
Americans want these countries to provide suitable conditions that
would enable the occupation to last for years and accept all the
decisions and projects the occupation intends to execute.
To do so, America has
been interfering in Iranian internal affairs, and waging an
informational and political war against it. Syria too has received
the same treatment, and the Americans are about to impose new
sanctions against it in accordance with the new Syrian
Accountability Law that was passed in the first place as a result
of the Jewish lobbying to serve Israeli interests that were
adopted by the Bush Administration.
Yet, the last
American report about terrorism and the countries that sponsor it
does not have any credibility, just like the American
Administration itself has begun to lose its international
credibility, and turn, in the eyes of the regionís peoples, into
an administration that protects the Israeli monster and that
practices state terror in Iraq. Many other European and Western
nations have begun to share them this view having seen the
American atrocities in Iraq, whether that of killing civilians or
torturing prisoners that are much like what the Nazis practiced in
the past and what the Israelis are practicing now.
The way the Americans
have acted in the region, that ignored all UN restorations that
have to do with Palestine and tried to empty them of their content
and to take them out of their historical context, and the cover
they provided for the Israeli acts of terror against the
Palestinians have given America an image of a first class sponsor
In the light of these
practices and the American support of Israelís occupation that
represents the highest degree of terrorism, such reports represent
sheer political hypocrisy for the US is the solely responsible for
state terror and for founding terrorist groups in the region as
well as in the entire world.
Moreover, if the
American Annual report on terrorism has excluded Iraq from the
list of states that sponsor terrorism, Iraq itself has become the
first front for International terror in the world. It is the place
where America kills all those who oppose its polices and raids
civilian targets. It is also the place where civilians are killed
by other factions in cold blood.
Americaís image in
the world is the image of a state that sponsors and supports
terrorism, a state that kills civilians and violates international
laws regarding the prisoners and the rules of war. Thus, all its
attempts to boost its image through various media means are doomed
to fail, for it will not be able to change its ugly face or to
erase the horrific memories it implanted in the minds of the
Arabs, the Muslims and all peace loving nations.
