attacks in Saudi Arabia and Morocco
attacks are unlawful crimes
recent attacks that killed scores of Arabs and Muslims, in
addition to some westerners in Saudi Arabia and Morocco,
especially that the Western media is trying to link them with
the recent heroic operations in occupied Palestine, Sayyed
Fadlullah was asked about how he views these attacks in view
of the difficult times the region is witnessing.
that governs those who are behind these attacks that had a
negative impact is probably a blocked one of a limited scope.
They were faced with a political impasse and an international
arrogance that seized the region and sought to promote its
interests as well as those of Israel.
They thought that
the best way to break this impasse is by resorting to such acts
of violence that could not have any legal justifications being a
direct aggression on innocent civilians who happened to be in
We believe that
these operations are dangerous in at least two aspects: They
represent, firstly, a continuity of an unsound logic that
distorts the image of Islam and present it as a religion that
encourages murder and does not mind an uncalled for blood
Secondly, such acts constitute an indirect
call for the arrogance to go on with their wars against Muslim
countries under the pretense of fighting terrorism, thus
enabling them to dominate the resources of the region and stop
looking at the American presence as an occupation force and
perhaps even call upon them occupy new countries.
Despite the fact
that America is the one that is mainly responsible for the
spread of this phenomenon, nurturing it in the beginning and
then practicing every kind of pressure against the Arabs and
Muslims, as well as impoverishing the region to an unprecedented
level, following all the direct and indirect looting that has
been taking place, these attacks are not justified from the
Islamic point of view. Moreover, they render a big service to
the arrogant by giving them the excuse to claim that they are
coming to plant the seeds of freedom and democracy in a region
that has no values.
We have always
emphasized that the real battlefront is Palestine, where martyr
operations against the occupier gain their legitimacy, for the
Israelis, there, have practiced virtually every crime and
atrocity to kill the Palestinian security.
Palestine, thus is
the place where martyr operations are acts of pride and honor. It is
the compass that guides the lost to the proper place that they ought
to sacrifice for.
