Lebanon: Who is smuggling money to the army kidnappers in Ersal?

The kidnappers of the Lebanese army soldiers on the outskirts of Ersal do not seem to be in a rush. They continue to blackmail the Lebanese government and have their demands met. Money and medical and food supplies have allowed them to continue their occupation of the barren areas surrounding Ersal, while the government is unable to give any assurances or guarantees to the families of the abductees. Continue reading Lebanon: Who is smuggling money to the army kidnappers in Ersal?

Lebanese military, Hizbullah and Syrian Arab Army Stop Nusra Infiltration

Lebanese security forces have exchanged fire with al-Qaeda-linked militants in the Bekaa Valley near the border with Syria.

Takfiri groups in north Lebanon admit to defeat in battle against the army

(EDITOR’S NOTE: A typically solid report from Radwan Mortada but we at Mouqawamah Music strongly object to the phraseology used here, i.e. the description of the depraved Takfiris as “Jihadis” and/or “Jihadists”. Indeed, we abhor and reject this phraseology generally speaking. Even many within the “resistance camp” and “alternative media” spew these words at will and it is both incorrect and an aberration of their true meaning. Hizbullah, the Qassam Brigades of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, etc., all refer to their disciplined, righteous, Islamic fighters as “Jihadis” and/or “Jihadists” because they are engaged in Jihad against the most shaytanic enemy known to mankind: World Zionism. Translated into English as “struggle”, Jihad is a Qur’anic-Islamic concept that is rooted in walking the path laid out for us by ALLAH (SWT), literally “struggling” in His (SWT) way. Jihad can be understood in perfect dichotomy as Jihad al-Akbar, “the greater struggle”, which is the struggle within one’s self against the ego, and Jihad al-Asghar, “the lesser struggle”, which can manifest itself politically, militarily, poetically, and numerous other ways, depending on the arena in which one is confronting the enemies of Islam. A Jihadi/Jihadist/Mujahid, truly defined, is one who has mastered Jihad al-Akbar, and since he/she has bested his/her ego in combat, he/she can now engage the enemy in Jihad al-Asghar. The Takfiris are too far disconnected from Islam to understand such things, and if they were around in the time of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), they would undoubtedly be the ones clinging to the Jahiliyyah and fighting him.  With all this said, journalists, analysts and commentators must stop using Jihadi/Jihadist/Mujahid to refer to these demonic creatures doing the bidding of the Jewish gangster regime occupying Palestine and NATO, it’s an insult to real Jihadis like the brave men of Hizbullah. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Takfiri groups in north Lebanon admit to defeat in battle against the army

by Ali Hashem, Al-Monitor

Two-thirds of Lebanon’s Christians believe Hezbollah is protecting country

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The photo above is from the ancient Syrian village of Maaloula, the only place in the world where Aramaic, the language of Prophet Jesus The Messiah (A.S.) is still spoken. Hizbullah, alongside the Syrian Arab Army, liberated Maaloula and the rest of the strategic Qalamoun Mountains from Zionist-backed Takfiri control earlier this year. The love and support for Hizbullah ain’t just a Lebanese thing but a Syrian thing as well, masha’ALLAH. Takfiris and their masters in Washington, “Tel Aviv”, Ankara and Riyadh have failed to achieve sectarian-communal division in Bilad al-Sham and both these pieces of evidence validate this reality beyond a shadow of a doubt. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)

Two-thirds of Lebanon’s Christians believe Hezbollah is protecting Lebanon from the threat of takfiris (extremist groups), a recent survey by the Beirut Center for Research and Information revealed. Continue reading Two-thirds of Lebanon’s Christians believe Hezbollah is protecting country
