The victory was accomplished by less than 1000 Hizbullah freedom-fighters as result of their 18 years of military resistance against the Israel Occupation Force (IOF) and their Lebanese militant Christian allies (Phlangists).
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary-General of the Islamic Resistance Hizbullah in a televised speech on the ocassion blasted both Barack Obama and Benji Netanyahu for killing the 2002 Saudi peace plan for Palestine.
Sheikh Nasrallah urged Arabs and Muslims to support current regimes in Syria and Islamic Republic. “The difference between the Arab uprisings and Syria… is that President Assad is convinced that reforms are necessary, unlike Bahrain and other Arab countries,” he said.
“We must refuse these sanctions that the United States and the rest of the West are marketing and trying to convince Lebanon to abide by, added Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah.
“The resistance will remain loyal to its goals, its path, its sufferings and the blood of its martyrs. Fear was in Netanyahu’s eyes two days ago when he was speaking before Congress about Hezbollah’s and Hamas’s missiles… we are neither frightened by Netanyahu nor by Obama and all their fleets. We belong to a land that has vanquished all the fleets and we are not scared by anyone’s threats, intimidations or accusations” Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah told told tens of thousads Lebanese assembled to mark the event.
