Shaker: Golan Heights allows Israel to launch short-range missile strikes against countries in region

Shaker: Golan Heights allows Israel to launch short-range missile strikes against countries in region

Saturday, 12 June 2021

 

 The book, “The Importance of the Golan Heights from the Perspective of Israel’s ‎Security and Its Survival” was unveiled at a ceremony attended by advisers to the ‎Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and the President, the ambassadors of ‎Palestine and Syria, representatives of Islamic Resistance groups and a group of senior ‎government officials.‎ This book was published by the Abna al-Rasul Institute with the participation of the ‎Political Office of the al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Movement in Iran and the Committee ‎for the Support of the Islamic Revolution of the Palestinian People.‎


Ali Shaker, the author of the book “The Importance of the Golan Heights from the Perspective of Israel’s ‎Security and Its Survival,” stated, “The loss of the Golan Heights is a problem for the Zionist regime in terms of security and survival” and noted, “That is why the Zionist movement, in its manifesto published in August 1967, declared that no Jewish state had the right to return the region.”


Explaining the historic process that has led to the promotion of the Golan Heights in Israel’s national security strategy, Shaker said, “This region is a highland that is a short distance from the sensitive political and security centres in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and even Jordan. Golan is 50, 60, 85 and 110 kilometres from the Syrian Presidential Palace in Damascus, the Lebanese Presidential Palace in Beirut, the Jordanian Royal Palace in Amman, and the Zionist Prime Minister’s Palace in al-Quds, respectively.”


He added, “In military literature, for ballistic missiles, the range of less than 180 to 200 kilometres is considered short-range and therefore the Golan Heights is a complete security advantage for the government or its ruling regime.”


The author explained, “Israel established settlements in the Golan Heights just six days after its occupation of the region, which it later renamed ‘Nahal’” and emphasized, “This may at first bring to mind a normal social matter when it is precisely a discussion of strategy. After serving in the army, the Zionists are obliged to engage in farming in these settlements for three months – settlements built mainly on the Golan Heights.”


Shaker continued, “This means that the Zionist regime seeks to create buffer zones to compensate for the strategic shallowness of the occupied territories in Palestine. It should be noted that approximately 70% of Israel’s major infrastructure, such as Ben Gurion Airport, the Trans-Israel Highway (known as Highway 6), the National Water Carrier and the high-pressure Israel Natural Gas Lines are compactly located in a narrow strip between the Mediterranean Sea and the West Bank.


Through these actions, this regime also de-secured the international community and human rights for the international community and put a civilian strategy at the forefront of the Syrian side.”


In conclusion, he described the design of Israeli fortifications in the Golan Heights as based on the principle of surprise and stated, “Although Zionist settlements in the region appear to be civilian, in fact, these settlements became part of the Zionist regime’s military network after the 1973 [Ramadan] War. They were connected to act as a dormant military base in the event of any possible threat or attack.”

 

Syria pays every price for liberation of Golan Heights: Dayoub

Syria pays every price for liberation of Golan Heights: Dayoub

Saturday, 12 June 2021

The book, “The Importance of the Golan Heights from the Perspective of Israel’s ‎Security and Its Survival” was unveiled at a ceremony attended by advisers to the ‎Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and the President, the ambassadors of ‎Palestine and Syria, representatives of Islamic Resistance groups and a group of senior ‎government officials.‎ This book was published by the Abna al-Rasul Institute with the participation of the ‎Political Office of the al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Movement in Iran and the Committee ‎for the Support of the Islamic Revolution of the Palestinian People.‎


Following the ceremony, Dr. Shafiq Dayoub, the ambassador of Syria to Iran, thanked the Palestinian Committee and the Office of the President of Iran for holding the ceremony and said, “I thank the author of the book and also Iraq’s al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Movement Nujaba for publishing the book at this important time because the publication of this book coincided with the anniversary of the occupation of the Golan Heights, and in particular the fact that Syrian citizens living in the Golan Heights were prevented from participating in the Syrian elections. Therefore, on behalf of all my compatriots, I thank you for publishing this book.”


Dr. Dayoub assessed the composition and level of the participants at the book launch as an indication of the importance of the Golan Heights for the Islamic Resistance Axis and said, “The dispute over ten metres from this region led to the failure of the Syrian-Israeli talks and the enemy realized that every part of the Golan Heights was worth as much to us as the whole country.”


He added, “The honour of the Golan Heights is like the honour of al-Quds, the honour of the Gaza Strip and the honour of the Shebaa Farms. Syria has always been and will remain by the side of the issue of Palestine and we declare that we are ready to pay any price for this important issue.”


The Syrian ambassador concluded by stating that “the situation in Syria will improve day by day with the support of its allies, especially Iran under the leadership of Imam Khamenei” and added, “We will be victorious with the help of the Islamic Resistance Axis and the Islamic Resistance Front will continue on its path to achieving all its goals, including the liberation of the Golan Heights and the liberation of Palestine.”

Endurance, patience in the face of enemies, hardships, factors of victory of Islamic society: Ayatollah Ramazani

Endurance, patience in the face of enemies, hardships, factors of victory of Islamic society: Ayatollah Ramazani

The Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly delivered a speech at the birth ceremony of Imam Ali (a.s.) in the presence of Shiites and the followers of this Imam on the night of Thursday, February 25, 2021, at the Assembly of Hazrat Fatemeh Al-Zahra (a.s.) in Syria.


“According to a narration of Imam Ali (a.s.), in order to strengthen the Islamic society, it is necessary to pay attention to four points: First, man must be pious. The Quran says that piety is the best clothing for man. A society without God would be naked and worthless. The enemies of Islam have always sought to erase the name of God because they seek to erase Islam. God’s name gives meaning to human life and the identity of society takes on a transcendent form in connection with God,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani in the ceremony.


“The West seeks to promote liberalism and indecency in Islamic society. To this end, the West has targeted our women, girls, youth, and families to separate them from God. Therefore, to create a healthy society, we must pay attention to the necessities,” he added.


“Islam opposes laziness. Therefore, the Qur'an advises us to do righteous deeds. “[to see] which of you is best in conduct” (Holy Quran 67:2) means to seek the best action, not the most action. The effort is the key to the success of Islamic society. In order to achieve a pure life, we must strive day and night, and this effort is not about the quantity of actions, but according to the Quran, we must also increase the quality of them,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, introducing ijtihad and effort as the second issue from Imam Ali’s point of view to strengthen the Islamic society.


“The third point in the statement of Imam Ali (a.s.) is “chastity and purity”. Imam Ali (a.s.) says, “Pure people are about to become angels”. Chastity is the adornment and beauty of divine life. Maintaining hijab and chastity is a must for girls and boys against the cultural invasion of the West. The enemies of Islam are trying to destroy the Islamic society from within by creating a breach in the chastity of the family through the youth. In the face of these attacks, it is our duty to maintain the family and emphasize public decency,” he continued.


“The fourth point from Imam Ali’s point of view to strengthen the Islamic society is “stability and endurance”. Everything we are going to do must be right and correct. That is, to pray correctly and pay zakat correctly, and so on. Therefore, we must be strong and powerful in performing our duties and avoiding Haram things. Therefore, endurance and patience in the face of enemies and hardships is another factor in the victory and success of Islamic society,” Ayatollah Ramazani also stated.

Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon has established true position of Shiites in region, world: Ayatollah Ramazani

Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon has established true position of Shiites in region, world: Ayatollah Ramazani

 During his visit to Syria on Thursday, February 25, 2021, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly met Hojat al-Islam Sayed Abdullah Nezam, the President of the Assembly of Hazrat Fatemeh Al-Zahra (a.s.).


“Michel Foucault believed that there would never be a religious revolution and that all revolutions would be secular and atheistic. But the Islamic Revolution of Iran rejected his theory and caused him to change his theory. Previously, Muslims did not have scientific power and global status and were considered third world and underdeveloped countries. But today, Islamic centers have expanded in the world. In Germany, for example, there were 100 Islamic centers, which has grown to 200 today. We are faced with the quantitative development of Islamic centers. But, more important than quantitative development, we need the qualitative development that exists. It is also one of the most serious discussions in scientific centers of the world such as Harvard, Cambridge and Sorbonne, are Islam and approaches to understanding Islam,” Ayatollah Reza Ramazani stated in this meeting.


“In the past, Muslim countries and cities were the center of science, but the West stole this science from Muslims and now rules the world with it,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“Thanks God, the Islamic Republic of Iran, has been able to achieve an important scientific position. For example, in the medical sciences, Islamic Iran was able to produce the covid-19 vaccine, and in the next few months, this vaccine will overtake the French and British vaccines and will become international,” He said about the progress of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.


“Shiites could not have lived normally if the idea of resistance had not been accompanied by scientific development. The Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon has established the true position of the Shiites in the region and in the world,” Ayatollah Ramazani said about the position of thought and the role of resistance among Shiites.


“Allame Mujahid Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Hezbollah in Lebanon, has a precise speech that gave me double morale and dignity. It was that “We will not allow Hazrat Zainab (a.s.) to be captured again.” This shows that the Shiites resisted the extremist elements with all their might. Let us remember the martyrs of the resistance and the honorable martyr, Sardar Haj Qasem Soleimani, for whom the funeral of a large number of people in Iran and Iraq was held. The funeral procession of the martyrs of the resistance shows the people’s acceptance of the culture of resistance and brought to fruition the words of the late Imam Khomeini, who said that “America can do no wrong”. Today, thanks to the struggles of the warriors of Islam, the power of resistance has increased and the enemies can do nothing,” he stated.


“The manifestation of the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) has reached a point where the former Secretary General of the United Nations said, “I wish Imam Khamenei would be the Secretary General of the United Nations to defend the people.” This statement is taken from the fact that Imam Khamenei is the son of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school,” emphasized the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

Anyone who doubts faith of Abu Talib sinned: Sunni Mufti of Aleppo

Anyone who doubts faith of Abu Talib sinned: Sunni Mufti of Aleppo

The closing ceremony of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Thursday evening, March 11, 2021, at the Imam Khomeini School in Qom.


On this day, after three years of activity, this important scientific and cultural event ends its work in a three-day conference, by presenting dozens of books and articles, translating dozens of valuable works, and holding 42 scientific pre-sessions, several art events, and cultural festivals, and holding sessions for five specialized committees.


As the first speaker at the closing ceremony of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)”, Sheikh Mahmoud Akam, the Sunni Mufti of Aleppo, Syria, delivered his speech via video conference.


At the beginning of his speech, he appreciated the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and organizers of the conference for holding it.


“Anyone who doubts the faith of Aboutaleb has sinned. Abu Talib supported, defended, and protected the Prophet, and for the sake of him and the religion of Islam, he confronted the violence of the polytheists,” added Sheikh Akam, emphasizing that Abu Talib (a.s.) had faith.


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) confirmed the Prophet with his actions, words, thoughts, and positions, and when he died, Hazrat Khadijeh, the wife of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), died in the same year,” he stated.


“All you have to do is adapt this verse to your position on Abu Talib,” said the Syrian Mufti, referring to verse 23 of Surah Al-Shura which says, “Say, ‘I do not ask you any reward for it except the love of [my] relatives.”


“There are many similar and converging Quranic verses,” added Sheikh Akam, referring to verse 107 of Sura al-Kahf which says, “As for those who have faith and do righteous deeds, they shall have the gardens of Firdaws for abode.”


“Abu Talib (a.s.) apparently did not convert to Islam and did not say the Shahada, which is one of the pillars of Islam. But he also did not say anything that was clearly in conflict with it. His words and deeds have been narrated as evidenced to his loyalty to his nephew’s religion (Islam),” Syrian Mufti continued.


“The reasons for faith are located in the heart of Abu Talib (a.s.). There is direct evidence that shows that he praised the Prophet with his firm words, and in his clear poems, he has praised his religion. Ibn Abi al-Hadid has mentioned these poems in his commentary on Nahj al-Balaghah,” said the prominent mufti of Aleppo, Syria.


“There are some positions that prove the faith of this great man. Abu Talib’s certificates of faith are valid. Abu Bakr said in this regard, “I swear to the one who sent you the truth, I am happier with Abu Talib’s Islam than my father’s conversion to Islam”,” he added.


“Suyuti mentions in al-Khasais that at the time of his death, Abu Talib invited the sons of Abd al-Muttalib and told them in his will, “You will not prosper in the end unless you listen to Muhammad, follow him, and follow his command. So, follow him and help him to be guided”,” continued Sheikh Akam.


“Qarfi al-Maliki in his commentary on Tanqih al-Usul said that Abu Talib was a believer in appearance and inwardness. But he did not follow the rules of Islam publicly. Many Sunni scholars have written books proving the faith of Abu Talib, of which we refer to al-Suyuti, Zayni Dahlan, al-Barzanji, al-Sha’rani, al-Sabki, al-Qurtubi, Abu Zuhra, al-Orf, and so on. They are so numerous that they are difficult to count,” said the Syrian Mufti.


It should be mentioned that by the initiation of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and support and cooperation of the similar institutions, including, “Imam Hossein (a.s.) Holy Shrine”, “Hazrat Aboutaleb Research and Publishing Institute”, “The World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought”, “Islamic Sciences and Culture Academy of Islamic Propagation Office”, “Al-Mustafa International University”, “Hawza Language teaching center”, “International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.)”, “Mirath-e Nabowat Cultural Institute”, “Jamiat al-Zahra Seminary University”, “Zorria al-Nabawia Research Center”, “Qasem ibn al-Hassan (a.s.) Religious-Cultural Institute”, and “Abna al-Rasoul Cultural and Artistic Institute”; international conference “Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Rajab 25, 26 and 27, 1442 (March 9, 10 and 11, 2021) on the anniversary of the demise of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).
