A Mouqawamah legend has been assassinated. Moustafa “Sayyed Zulfiqar” Badreddine, a truly special Hizbullah commander who kept Mossad, Aman and Shin Bet intelligence chiefs awake at night in cold sweats with his elusiveness and tactical brilliance, was killed in a cowardly, Zionist-backed Takfiri shelling attack near Damascus Airport. As sad, infuriating and gut-wrenching as this development is however, we aren’t going to allow the monstrous, maniacal, satanic Jewish supremacist entity to bring forth our tears and turn our wills, spirits and hearts to mush. Instead, we are going to celebrate the resistant, epic life of Sayyed Zulfiqar, a man who gave life to the word hero and helped build up Hizbullah into the juggernaut it is today alongside his brother-in-law, the Lebanese Islamic Resistance architect, Hajj Imad Mughniyeh. Have no fear! Just like Hizbullah didn’t kneel after Ghaleb Awali was martyred in July 2004; just as Hizbullah didn’t flinch when the greatest of the greats, Mughniyeh himself, was martyred in February 2008; just like Hizbullah didn’t bow after Hassan Lakkis, “the Digital Mughniyeh” who was responsible for adding modern technology and cyber warfare to the Mouqawamah’s arsenal, was martyred in December 2013; just as Hizbullah didn’t break down after Commander and founding Hizbullah moujahid Muhammad “Abou Issa” Issa, along with Mughniyeh’s son “Jawad” Jihad, and fellow moujahideen “Sayyed Abbas” Hijazi, “Daniel” Ghazi Ali Dawi, “Kazem” Abu al-Hasan and “Ihab” Ali Hassan Ibrahim were killed in the Zionist enemy’s Quneitra operation in January 2015; and just as Hizbullah didn’t crash and burn after Samir al-Quntar, Mouqawamah commander of the occupied Golan Heights and the Dean of the Liberated Detainees from ‘Israeli’ Prisons, was martyred in Jaramana just six months ago, the death of Moustafa Badreddine will not make the Lebanese Islamic Resistance fold, crumble or yield even a single inch to the cancerous tumor called ‘Israel’. Very much to the contrary, Hizbullah is only going to grow stronger, gain more experience, add more weapons to its armory, develop new offensive and defensive capabilities and continue aiding the anti-Zionist oppressed people wherever they are, be it in Syria, Iraq or precious Yemen. You can rest in power and rest in salaam for real Sayyed Zulfiqar, because there are countless, martyrdom-loving warriors on the front lines bearing your mark, ready to avenge you and keeping the spirit of ‘Death To Israel’, the principle which you embodied the most, burning bright until one day soon when it finally comes to pass. ALLAH yerhamak.
