Speech by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on May 13, 2022, during the last electoral meeting before the legislative elections in Lebanon held on May 15.
[…] Before I address the specific issues of this meeting and our upcoming (electoral) battle in two days, let me spend a few minutes on the crime perpetrated by the soldiers of the Zionist occupation that led to the martyrdom of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.
On the one hand, Shireen Abu Akleh was a witness to the crimes of the enemy for many years, as well as a witness to the oppression of the Palestinian people and the daily crimes, massacres, aggressions and violations that they suffer, both in terms of the (oppressed) population and the (desecrated) holy places. And today, she has become the oppressed martyr, the victim of one of these crimes. She is therefore both the witness (chaahid) and the oppressed martyr (chahiid) [in Arabic as in the Greek root of this word, “martyr” has the double meaning of witness and martyr, designating a person who died to attest to the truth of religion].
On the other hand, such is the true face of this enemy. Such is his bestiality which has never changed one iota. From the massacres of Deir Yassin (in 1948) to all the massacres in Palestine, to the massacres in Lebanon, in Qana, Sohmor and the other villages, to the massacre of the Egyptian soldiers trapped in Sinai, etc., etc., etc. This is the true identity of Israel, its essence and nature: monstrosity, tyranny, arrogance, bloodshed, and, in the depths of history, the murder of the Prophets [mentioned by the Bible and the Quran]. Nothing has changed, nothing at all.
Those who should feel ashamed, humiliated and degraded in the first place are (all Arab-Muslims who) normalize with the enemy, be it regimes, governments, elites and particular individuals who try to persuade our peoples that Israel is an entity whose existence is natural (and irrevocable), an obvious choice, a well-established and developed State with which one can coexist in peace. The first thing that came to my mind as I watched this martyr and her blood on TV is that her blood is on the hands of the (Arab-Muslim) leaders and elites who normalize their relations with Israel. This blood is on their face, on their cheeks, on their temples, on their lips and on their hands.
The message of this (tragic) event, O my brothers and sisters, is very strong, both for the Palestinian people, the Arab, Muslim (and Christian) peoples and the whole world. Unfortunately, some have been quick to try to shift the debate on this dangerous crime perpetrated by the enemy, turning it into a debate on Shireen Abu Akleh’s religion and her religious affiliation. I declare to you that the strongest message in the martyrdom of this oppressed woman is that she is a Christian. The strongest message in the martyrdom of this oppressed woman is that she is a Christian. This message declares to all that Israel, the temporary usurping entity, has attacked both Muslims and Christians, both the Palestinian people and the peoples of the region, and has killed, oppressed, expelled, imprisoned and destroyed the homes of both Muslims and Christians. Israel, the usurping occupying entity, has attacked both Muslim and Christian holy places. And just a few days ago, during the month of Ramadan, we saw the aggressive Zionist behavior against Muslim worshippers praying on Friday at Al-Aqsa Mosque, and against Christians during the Great Saturday of Holy Fire at the Basilica of the Resurrection (Church of the Holy Sepulchre).
The message of Shireen Abu Akleh’s martyrdom states that all are in danger (against Israel), whether it is their lives, their blood, their children, their property, their homes, their future and their Muslim and Christian holy places. The message states that this racist entity… Today, the only entity on the face of the earth that openly declares its segregationist (Apartheid) regime is Israel.
This inhuman, tyrannical regime against all human beings (non-Jews) will never change one iota, because this is its real identity and essence. No matter what the normalizers do, and no matter what it may do in demonstrations of hypocrisy, its bestial and criminal nature will always drive it to perpetrate such mistakes and acts of imbecility that will (reveal its true face and) destroy all its efforts to appear as a normal State (with a human face).
We hope that the blood of Shireen Abu Akleh, and the blood of the men and women, young, adults and children of Palestine will awaken the dead and withered consciences, and cause all the good and dignity that remains in this (Arab & Muslim) Community, both among Muslims and Christians, to rise up.
Allow me also today to extend my condolences to the families of the martyrs in Nubl and Al-Zahra of the local defense forces attached to the Syrian Arab Army who saw more than 10 martyrs fall today in a brazen and open attack by the terrorist armed groups in northern Aleppo.
I ask God the Most High to grant their families the strength to endure this loss and console their pain. […]

When Western World govs can murder a Western World journalist and not have any righteous indignation by any civilians tell you ,we are living in times of great trouble and potential change.
She did after all ,work for a Western outfit where there are many US and Turkish bases. Are they not Natoish enough for you,Israel?
The Hebraic Pharisees of old crucified Christ. And today, the converted Pharisees of Eastern European descent in Apartheid Israel are still crucifying His followers.
But not to worry, the Almighty is keeping track, and His riposte will not be late in coming.

It also reveals, Brother Ma, that the US is at the beck and call of the ‘Chosenites’. The US is the Step and Fetch It for the Mossad. Just like the USS Liberty, I think it was, where they strafed and bombed a US ship for hours, and nearby US vessels were ordered NOT to intervene so that they could be sure there were no survivors to tell the tale. Someone didn’t follow orders, and some were rescued but still … in the world of media … crickets.
Zionist israel & the US Nato is the real Axis of Evil, the great satan, not North Korea.
How many countries has DPRK invaded? How many foreign military bases do they have?
. . . . . and yet the satanic Empire & pet mongrel Israel call them a threat.
The message states that this racist entity… Today, the only entity on the face of the earth that openly declares its segregationist (Apartheid) regime is Israel.
He seems to not have taken notice of many other western projects like the most recent one beeing ukraine. Open Apartheid against everything perceived as “russian”.
The jews may be the enemys of both christians and muslims but will this muslims be different than to others in history? Will they this time not turn around and murder the christians at the first chance?
I am not convinced but the hezbolaz seems to be the best candidate to show that times have changed,
since they did indeed send their troups to syrian villages to protect them including christian ones.
Many very important Catholic movements (I cannot speak of Protestants because I do not know them) such as the Neocatechumenal Way with millions of members worldwide. Have developed a Judaizing liturgy and aesthetics and with strong ties with Jewish leaders in the world, to the point to consider them, the Jews, our older brothers. The Catholic Church now afraid of Jews, denounced as if he did centuries earlier, that the Talmud slanders, in some parts, Christ and the Virgin (not your course name) this instance. The late Mrs. Shireen Abu Akleh, may she rest in peace, was a Catholic and it is certain that she knew this more well.
Israeli apartheid is way worse than the South African apartheid.
Shireen Abu Akleh was an AMERICAN CITIZEN. And I have heard NO CONDEMNATION from Washington and little from the American mainstream media. Let that sink in for a minute. And recall the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967, killing US naval seamen, and the pass from the US government that Israel received after that occasion as well. The US government is despicable and incorrigible.
I do not know what power it is they hold but neither the US nor Russia dare to
do something open about Israel i don’t know what China’s stance is here.
I guess for now they are just a watcher from afar.
and JFK, RFK and 9/11
Not to forget Rachel Corrie….the list is long and the 3000 killed WTC on sept 2001
Let us not forget the collaboration between the US Government-CIA and Israeli Mossad to murder/main thousands of American, 9/11.
If they’d murder their own people just as an excuse to invade Iraq & Afghanistan then they’re cut from the same cloth.
Israel is a US proxy in the region. Both will genocide millions in pursuit of their lands/resources. No surprise there.
I get a “this domain is available for sale” msg when i hit the Resistance news link?🤷♂️
Go to resistancenews.org The link is for resistancenews.com, which is a mistake.
Us and israel are preparing for a huge war
US and Israel are not preparing for a huge war. The ones who are preparing are on the other side. The daily threats emanating from the west fully backed by the owned MSM gives the masses a sense of superiority.
Those days of superiority is actually over, but the recession is here to stay. That is one of the main reasons that the population is given outliers to deflect from this reality.
Years ago, Israel bombed Lebanon for almost 3 weeks before moving in on the ground. They were soundly beaten by Hezbollah who had a network of tunnels, and completely surrounded the tanks and troops. The weeks of bombing by NATO in Yugoslavia never saw western troops sent in , for the Serbs were waiting on them.
The Jews have been threatening Iran with attacks, but have not done so. Iran now has missiles that can reach any part of small Israel. Hezbollah and Hamas have rockets that can go deep into Israel and none are not prepared to die.
Both Russia and China have airpower that is superior or equal to Zion USA, and committed military determined to protect their homelands. Israel launches airstrikes against Syria and many believe that this is a sign of strength, but Syria fends off most and doesn’t seem to care. The Russian s-300s have been activated and those attacks will soon dwindle.
What they have is paid traitors all over the world (mossad) carrying out assassinations, but they will pay a price soon.
When Qatar owned Al Jazeera started years ago, it was a neutral site but soon half of it was bought up by a Jew. Since then, Al Jazeera pays lip service to the Palestinian cause, but is firmly pro USA and hateful towards Russia and China and anything USA tells them to hate.
The Arabs who are a backstabbing bunch had no choice but to go along with Zion USA , but times have changed. The Al Jazeera journalist was not the first one killed by the west, for in the Iraq war they bombed the Al Jazeera station where many died. The fact that she was American means nothing, as coloured person’s in the united States is in a different category, despite the uncle Tom’s they put into power. It is smoke and mirrors.
America can keep piling on their threats, but they are waiting for you. All of them.
Thanks for your views. I really do hope that what you say is true and it is all posturing.
Please. Please, please.
Do not repost a complete translation of the Nasrullah speeches. It is too long. We don’t have enough time during the day to read all of it and everything else. I am sure it is all useful for the Lebanese audience. But here, we need a brief bullet point of the key issues he has addressed. I have stopped reading the whole speach. Too long.
