One could write for days and for weeks, for months and for years about Hizbullah’s legendary triumph on this day 17 years ago. Lebanon was liberated from a 22-year Zionist occupation and for the first time in the history of the “Arab-‘Israeli’ conflict”, the usurping Jewish terrorists were not merely defeated but humiliated on such a grandiose scale after all the damage and casualties the Lebanese Islamic Resistance had inflicted on them, that they fled in the middle of the night like the cockroaches and rats they are. The Party killed the “Greater ‘Israel'” scheme dead in its tracks, inspired the Second Intifada in Occupied Palestine that ultimately led to the liberation of Gaza–which Hizbullah was hugely involved in–and gave hope to hundreds of millions of Muslims and Moustazafeen worldwide.
It was no longer a question of ***if*** the artificial ‘Israeli’ regime would disappear from our midst, but when. From the hallowed ground of Bint Jbeil, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah declared that ‘Israel’ was weaker than a Spider’s Web and that the era of defeats was over. It was a historic moment. All of this is well-known. But what is less-discussed is that Hizbullah’s triumph allowed the Mouqawamah to expand its role regionally and help those oppressed ones needing assistance in the face of Empire Judaica. It is from this angle that I write to you today as a thankful and awe-inspired Iraqi Mouqawamist, because without Hizbullah, there would be nothing left of my homeland but a gigantic American-British-Zionist colony that extended from Erbil to Baghdad to Basra.
Thanks to interviews from Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba (HHN) Secretary-General Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi and a recent speech by our guide and our pride Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, we know that Hizbullah’s brightest beacons were deeply involved in training and arming the young lions who would come to make up the infrastructures of HHN, Kata’ib Hizbullah, Asa’ib Ahlul Haqq, the Imam Ali (A.S.) Brigade, the Abou Fadhl al-Abbas (A.S.) Brigade, Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada and more. Both Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.) and Hajj Moustafa “Sayyed Zulfiqar” Badreddine (R.A.) traveled to Iraq frequently during their stays on this earthly plane, and both of these warrior-angels would instill in Iraq’s moujahiden the same ferocity, the same commitment to Imam Hussein (A.S.), the same passion and the same Anti-Zionist consciousness that they instilled in the dauntless fighters of Hizbullah. While the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran also provided logistical, spiritual and military support, often alongside the aforementioned Hizbullah architects, it was the Lebanese Islamic Resistance that played the most game-changing role in Iraq’s fate.
Mughniyeh (R.A.) is said to have advised Iraq’s youth in their fierce and vicious battles for Najaf, Basra, Karbala and Hilla that would drive the Brits out of Iraq’s south. Badreddine (R.A.) helped free the Baghdad Belt from Daesh and had also traveled to Fallujah and Tikrit to guide the Iraqi defenders not only against the Takfiris but their Amreeki backers as well. And the love that we Iraqis have for Hizbullah is as natural to us as breathing. Photographs and Hizbullah insignias are routinely seen engraved into the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units’ weapons and uniforms and “Labaykah ya Nasrallah!” has become a battlecry heard across various Iraqi arenas in the fight against the Mossad-CIA-birthed ISIS Frankenstein. Truly, the Iraqi Islamic Resistance has embraced and exemplified the Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.) School of Fighting. Much to the detriment of Zio-Imperialists and Wahhabi interlopers everywhere.
If the Men of God never entered Iraq in late ’03, teaching the poor Shi’a Shabab of Sadr City and the holy cities of the South how to effectively combat the enemy occupiers, Iraq today would not be a nation on the verge of liberating itself from the shackles of both the US ZOG and ISIS, it would be a colonized pseudo-state, devoid of resistance and totally overrun by Western corporations, ‘Israelis’ and mercenary armies like Blackwater and DynCorp. Of that, there isn’t even the smallest doubt. And Iraq’s preservation would not have been possible had Hizbullah’s Mighty Moujahideen not prevailed over the cancerous Yahoudling entity, allowing them to restore Lebanon’s sovereignty and open up their treasure chests of Mouqawamist know-how and prestige to starving and martyrdom-loving Iraqis. Yemen’s Ansarullah, the Palestinian Resistance and Syria’s NDF all bear Hizbullah’s signature also. To thank Hizbullah for its sacrifices and its heroism would be too little. So this Iraqi MC will humbly bow his head and kneel at the Mouqawamah’s feet instead. That is certainly much, MUCH more fitting. Happy Resistance and Liberation Day o’ Party of God! Without you, the Mesopotamian nation and our people would have ceased to be!
