Happy Divine Victory Day to my beautiful, brave, brilliant, blistering and blazing Lebanese brethren, the most triumphant people in the entire Islamicate! And more sincere wishes on this blessed occasion to all of the Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) worldwide. Because truly, Hizbullah’s thrashing of the usurping Zionist entity over 34 days in the 2006 July War was a victory for all peoples of all types and all stripes. There were battles that were legendary (Wadi al-Hujeir and Bint Jbeil). There were martyred heroes who were larger than life–so large in fact that their spirits still and will forever tower over the world’s mightiest trees and buildings combined and multiplied (Khaled “Prince of the Battlefield” Bazzi [R.A.] and Ali “Bilal” Saleh [R.A.] to name a couple). And there was a leader whose razor blade wit, booming truthful promises and unforgettable smile shook the enemy in biblical fashion and changed the course of history (Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah).

And not merely a new phase of battle but a new phase of victory with it. Verily, their triumph in protection of their homeland in the summer of 2006 enabled and strengthened them in ways that they weren’t even aware of themselves until the time came that Malak al-Mawt (A.S.) called them to join the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) and all the Shouhada (R.A.) To call them legends would be understating it so vastly that it borders on insulting. So we’ll just let their Nour-filled faces, angel-like auras and stories of dauntlessness do the talking instead.
