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.”

 

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.

Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly

The Ahl al-Bayt World Assembly  is an international non-governmental organization (INGO) that was established by a group of Shiite elites under the supervision of the great Islamic authority of the Shiites in 1990 to identify, organize, educate and support the followers of Ahl al-Bayt.
