Striking Star Salutes, salaams, bent knees, bowed heads, tilted fitteds, RIPs, raised fists and Al-Fatiha for Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.), assassinated by the usurping Zionist entity’s Mossad 9 years ago today in the Kfar Sousa area of Damascus. The architect of Hizbullah’s hybrid conventional-asymmetrical military doctrine and the most formidable moujahid of the last 100 years (and then some) hands down, left this world fighting the enemy he spent his whole life outmaneuvering, outthinking, outfighting and defeating at every turn. It may ***seem*** contradictory or incorrect even to make such a statement, considering it was indeed the Jewish supremacist tumor which murdered Mughniyeh in the “end”. But… Funny word, “end”, isn’t it? Because when we look at what Hajj Imad left behind in the wake of his martyrdom, it should be as evident to all as the night sky is black and the day sky is blue that the only thing ‘Israel’ killed on February 12th, 2008, and the only thing ‘Israel’ brought an “end” to, is the physical body of the larger-than-LIFE Hizbullah Commander.

If you don’t believe in miracles, it is only because you never heard of Ali “Bilal” Saleh. This legendary Hizbullah martyr, who was also known for being a leading moujahid on the Nabatiyeh front prior to the historic liberation of Lebanon in May 2000, singlehandedly changed the course of the 2006 July War. Before the aggression came to a close, the ‘Israelis’ (Unit 162) had made their way into the ultra-vital arena of Wadi al-Hujeir with a horde of their allegedly “invincible” Merkava tanks and were looking to set up shop on the Litani River, not only for military positioning but also for energy purposes, as stealing precious Lebanese water resources has always been a strategic goal of the Zionist occupation.
But Bilal, a glorious guerrilla veteran with genius-level battlefield intellect and the “eyes of an eagle” who had accuracy with projectiles unlike anything ever seen before in the Resistance’s history, was NOT about to let such a calamity happen on his watch. He declared that the advancement of the Zionists’ tanks had be halted and with his comrades wounded all around him, he adopted this mission as his alone. Bilal himself was hurt as well but it didn’t matter! He moved from Syrian-provided Kornet launcher to Syrian-provided Kornet launcher, neutralizing tank after tank while taking cover behind the rocks and trees of Lebanon’s heavenly landscape like the true son of the Jnoub he was; like a formidable, elusive, Mouqawamist ninja-jinn! For the last 30 years, the ‘Israeli’ military leadership has routinedly described Hizbullah’s moujahideen as “ghosts” the way they deliver an attack on a target and then collapse into the background like they never were even there to begin with. Ali “Bilal” Saleh, may ALLAH (SWT) be pleased with him, proved himself to be the Prince of the Ghosts. Continue reading Hizbullah Martyr Ali “Bilal” Saleh: One Man Army, Miracle-Maker and Superhero

“The game is over,” Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said. “All hostile attempts to execute plans in Syria and Iraq failed,” he said in the three-hour interview with the pan-Arab news channel Al-Mayadeen on Jan. 15.
Nasrallah’s interview was packed with messages on Israel, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Iran; in rhetoric, it seemed offensive, non-conciliatory and threatening, yet between the lines, there were stances that could be seen as new and promising, mainly on Syria. Continue reading Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: The game is over in Syria

One of the main “lessons learned” from the war of July-August 2006 is that the modern concept of asymmetric warfare, which emerged in the late 1990s in the United States, is already in dire need of revision. Hizbollah’s military performance during the war demonstrates that asymmetric warfare can no longer be identified exclusively with political actors who adopt “non-traditional” methods “that differ significantly from the opponent’s usual mode of operations” (as per the US military’s definition).
