[color=red]The Palestinian problem is outside the scope of light [/color]
The light is no longer focused on the Palestinian problem in this stage. America sends a second rate envoy who can do nothing… For all he came to do was to emphasize the American support for Israel against the Palestinians, and advising the Palestinians to engage in a "security reform"; that is stopping the Intifada…etc.
The European Union, on its part, is launching a new initiative that has no real chance of being implemented, while the Arabs have put the Palestinian issue in the drawers of the Arab league, for they feel politically incompetent and unable to face the American pressure, and the Zionist muscle flexing.
The Arab and Muslim peoples follow up the news about the massacres the Israelis commit against women, children, the elderly and youth, as well as all the arbitrary arrests, brutal assassinations and the demolitions of the country's infrastructure. Although, they feel the pain they protest in a clam and ineffective way.
Moreover, the world is not concerned with the violations of the Palestinian human rights, nor is there any country to remind the Israelis that they have to abide by the international law that prohibits deporting innocent citizens… In short, the Palestinians are living a human tragedy of hunger, starvation and dislocation, but nobody cares.
As to the security aspect of their life, it has to wait for the occupation to end, which is conditioned by ensuring absolute security to Israel without any attention to the Palestinian security despite all the calls to the Security Council to send troops to protect the Palestinians from the Israeli atrocities.
The American president talked about giving 50 million Dollars in humanitarian aid to the Palestinians, but he also gave Israel an additional 200 million Dollars to kill the Palestinians… The massacre goes on, with the world either watching or conspiring. The Palestinians are left alone to confront the Zionist war machine with their bare flesh, and their incredible steadfastness and resolve that are supported by their firm national unity. Yet no right will be lost as long as there are those who fight for it:
And Allah (S.W.T) is the one who provides victory for whom He wills.
[color=red] Do not trust America[/color]
The Iraqi problem is still under the influence of American political and informational intimidation, as well as international disagreement between those who are with the war on Iraq and those who are against it.
Meanwhile, the American -British preparations for the war continue, especially with the much anticipated meeting between Bush and Blair about to take place, all within the context of the American offensive that wishes to dominate the region by exerting pressures, making threats and resorting to the diplomacy of the stick.
Throughout all this, nobody is paying attention to the Iraqi people with all their sufferings in the big prison they are living it, and which have grown even greater with the iron fist that is being more tightly held under the pretense of the necessities of war.
Moreover, the Iraqis are also suffering from dislocation outside Iraq where they live in poverty and humiliation. Yet there are those who dream of salvation through the Americans… But is it possible that the fox will save the lamb with all this long and bloody history of treachery, deception and preying?
We call upon the Iraqi opposition for a political militant unity that plans and acts inside Iraq, for no opposition can achieve victory from the outside. On the contrary, it will remain subjected to exploitation of various powers of conflicting interests…
[color=red]A need for wisdom to solve problems in Lebanon [/color]
In Lebanon, the enemy continues to make threats and violates our air space. It is also trying to prevent us from using the waters of the Wazani River to crush our thirst and irrigate our lands, while America and the United Nations call for calming down in a way that is, at times, more threatening than diplomatic.
Amid all these disturbing developments, Lebanon was busy with the fight with the Palestinian refugee camp in Baa'lback in the East of the country, where the blood was spilled and the security with all its political implications was destabilized, although the people living there are among the most impoverished who were never known to emerge in a civil rebellion against the government.
Why did all this take place? Why did not the government deal with the problem with wisdom and prudence, coordinating with the officials and the popular committee of the camp, without spilling blood and creating tensions at a time the Palestinian blood flows like rivers in the occupied territories.
Then, there was the surprise of the so-called precautionary measures that the Lebanese were unable to accept, of closing the Lebanese Television station (M.T.V.), an action that renewed the battle for political and press freedoms in Lebanon, the central issue that represents Lebanon-being the oasis of freedom in the region. We wished that things would have been dealt with more wisely in a way that corresponds to the issue of freedom and takes the political and security balance in Lebanon into consideration.
We hope that these two issues will be dealt with in a way that upholds justice, safeguards freedom, encourages self-censorship that refrains from all what distorts national unity and does not undermine the Lebanese -Palestinian relationship and unity against the mutual enemy.
The current circumstances in Lebanon make him unable to endure such political and security shocks, especially that the Lebanese are concerned about the effects of the new annual budget on their daily lives, with the new taxes that are being imposed and even the threats that entail their social security benefits.
In these circumstances in which Lebanon seems to be on a course that leads him to bankruptcy and collapse, due to the increase of the national debts in billions of Dollars, we believe that Lebanon needs to solidify and enhance its national unity that guards the country against all future tempests, and not creating additional problems which only aggravate things.
