Zionists digging their own grave in Lebanon

July 30, 2006
The Zionist regime’s brutal attacks on Lebanon have entered their third week as the world witnesses Lebanon’s brave Islamic resistance with astonishment.

Although unbiased international analysts and observers believe that this war was inevitable because the United States has been seeking an opportunity to implement its Middle East Initiative and the Zionists have been pursuing their Nile to the Euphrates strategy, such a show of resistance by Hezbollah forces was quite unimaginable.

Israel thought that the war would have an outcome similar to the Arab-Israeli wars of 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973, which ended with the Arabs agreeing to make concessions to the Zionist regime. The Zionists also believed that by occupying an extensive part of southern Lebanon through ground attacks and destroying the country’s infrastructure through air raids in a maximum of seven days, they would be able to turn the Lebanese people against Hezbollah and force Lebanese officials to negotiate the disarmament of the guerilla group.

However, with the prolongation of the war, Israel’s hopes have been frustrated. Facing a situation it had not predicted, Israel is about to become the main loser of the war. The following can be cited as proof: (1) The Israeli public’s opposition to a prolonged war

The Israelis cannot bear a prolonged war and continued fighting could give rise to an anti-government Israeli uprising, signs of which have already emerged in minor incidents.

After Hezbollah missiles targeted the important port city of Haifa, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told the country’s media that the Israeli people and army would support operations against Lebanon and Hezbollah.

But Olmert lied to himself and to the people, since he is well aware that Israeli Jews cannot tolerate a prolonged war. Israeli troops are also harassed by the constant guerilla operations of Hezbollah forces and tremble at the thought of engaging the Islamic resistance in battle.

On the other side are the martyrdom-seeking forces of Hezbollah and the Lebanese people, who are continuing their normal lives despite Israel’s incessant air raids and missile attacks on the country. It seems that they feel prepared to face months of military operations. (2) Military power

The Zionist regime has used many types of high-tech weapons and U.S.-imported laser bombs to target almost every spot in Lebanon it considers strategic and important. However, it has failed to reach its goals.

According to Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah has only used half of its military power so far. Therefore, the Israeli general public and Zionist officials are very worried about the possibility of more intense missile attacks by Hezbollah on the occupied territories, particularly Tel Aviv. (3) Growing animosity toward the Zionist regime

As acknowledged by Zionist media outlets, the wave of hatred of and disgust with Israel for its barbaric bombardment of residential areas and its massacres of innocent Lebanese women and children is growing. Israel’s Haaretz daily recently published an article saying that the cost of the war is increasing day by day and that international animosity toward the Zionist regime has grown, a factor that will negatively impact national security.

Elsewhere in the article, the daily pointed out that, contrary to the false belief in Israel that the Zionist regime enjoys the support of the international community, the images of war in Beirut will inflict serious damage on Israel, increasing hatred of the occupier regime not only in the East but also in the Western world.

On the other hand, the popularity of Hezbollah, and particularly Nasrallah, among Arab nations and some European countries is increasing day by day, to the extent that he is even being called “the hero of the resistance”.

Many Arab politicians, particularly Sunni clerics, also admit that no one in the Arab world has ever shown such resistance against aggressors and bullying powers.
