Ensuring that the American Administration is helping Israel to surpass international resolutions
Fadlullah asserts that America
has transformed the UN into a vehicle to its aggressions...
the continuous threats entail the very existence of the Nation.
Asked in his weekly seminar about the meaning of
holding to the international resolutions, and working under the UN
umbrella, especially that it has become evident that these resolutions
do not protect the wronged nor does it defend their rights. The
Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah stated:
It is no longer difficult to pass a judgment on the
role of the UN, especially in this stage whereby it has become
dominated by the US
to the extent that it cannot be made use of even as forum for just
causes. The American hegemony has reached a very critical stage that
no right of any wronged nation can be attained through the UN, if it
runs counter to the interests of the super powers or the Zionists.
It is quite ironic that the President of the Untied
States should address the UN to talk about Iraq ’s
violations of UN resolutions, knowing that it was America
that helped him in violating these resolutions, through its
encouragement of the Iraqi war against Iran
and using mass destruction weapons in this war. It then gave him a
yellow light to invade Kuwait ,
using it as a scarecrow to the whole Islamic and Arab region.
And now it wants to get rid of the Iraqi regime,
under the pretense of not executing the UN resolutions, while in fact,
it is planning to dominate the entire region.
Furthermore, the US
have constantly helped Israel
to pay no attention to any international resolution, whether UN
Security Council resolutions 194 (the refugees). 338 and 242 or many
others, which Israel
in effect rejected, by annexing the Golan, the West
Bank , and Gaza …
And now it wants to try the Arabs and Muslims in the name of these
resolutions having helped Israel not only to violate them but to
create a new statuesque in the region that not only does not take
these resolutions into consideration, but it also cares not about the
rights of nations and humans.
Thus, as we witness this unfavorable international
change against our nation’s causes and interests, we do not want the
Muslims and Arabs to act against the international resolutions that
recognize some of their rights, but we want them to think of another
way in dealing with the UN and international forums, even if they have
to withdraw from this forum which no longer offers any protection to
their rights and peoples. On the contrary, it has become a suitable
cover for America
to wage a continuous aggression on them.
The nation nowadays is subjected to the most
dangerous threats that surpass the current pressures and threatens its
very existence. America’s support for Israel in eradicating the
Palestinians, destroying their infrastructure, and preventing the
Palestinian people from exercising the right of self-determination in
accordance with the UN resolutions that America itself took part in
formulating is but a specimen of what the Arab and Islamic worlds are
going to witness... Thus, we need to take a firm stand which might
well be a bold decision concerning the usefulness of our acting under
the banner of the UN.
On the other hand, the Arab street should move fast.
If the regimes are afraid from it, the time has come that they should
try to make use of this street to guarantee their own continued
existence by ensuring that the interests of this street and this
nation are defended.
