Iran's Ahmadinejad receives rapturous welcome in Lebanon

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad received a rapturous welcome from tens of thousands of well-wishers, most of them supporters of the militant Shiite Hezbollah, when he arrived Wednesday for his first state visit to Lebanon.

At the airport, Mr. Ahmadinejad was greeted by Nabih Berri, the Lebanese parliamentary speaker and leader of the Shiite Amal Movement, before heading to the presidential palace in a motorcade flanked by armed guards for the first of a series of meetings with top Lebanese officials.

“Lebanon is the focus point of resistance and standing against those who demand too much,” he was quoted as saying on Iranian state television. “It is playing an excellent role in this regard.”

Hezbollah’s relentless campaign of resistance against the Israeli occupation of south Lebanon led to a unilateral Israeli troop withdrawal in 2000. Six years later, Hezbollah stunned Israel by fighting its troops to a standstill in the hills and valleys of south Lebanon. More than 1,100 Lebanese were killed and Lebanon suffered immense infrastructure damage.

But Hezbollah declared a “divine victory,” and since then has strengthened its military capabilities even further in anticipation of yet another war with Israel. Hezbollah is believed to have acquired new anti-aircraft systems and surface-to-surface rockets with guidance capabilities allowing it to accurately strike strategic targets in Israel for the first time. Thousands of recruits have been trained since 2006 and new battle tactics have been prepared for a confrontation that many on both sides of the Lebanon-Israel border believe is inevitable.

Ahmadinejad's vision of Israel being 'wiped from the map'

Ahmadinejad has repeatedly claimed that the next war with Israel will be the last, and that it will lead to the end of the Jewish state. 

In February, he urged Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s leader, to prepare his forces so that if the Israelis want to “repeat the mistakes of the past, then their case should be closed once and for all and the region delivered from their evil ways forever.

Hezbollah leaders constantly echo the refrain that Israel will be defeated in the next war. While there is an element of psychological warfare in such pronouncements, the grassroots Hezbollah fighters hold the promise of Israel’s demise as an article of faith.

“We believe what our leaders tell us and we believe that we will finish off Israel in the next war, God willing,” says Ali, a veteran Hezbollah combatant from the village of Addaisseh on the border with Israel.

Political and sectarian tensions are on the rise again in Lebanon amid unconfirmed reports that an international tribunal is set to issue indictments against members of Hezbollah for the assassination in 2005 of Rafik Hariri, a former Lebanese prime minister. An Al Qaeda-affiliated group issued threats on the eve of Ahmadinejad’s visit. On Wednesday morning, a small bomb destroyed a parked car in north Lebanon belonging to a Sunni cleric who is allied to Hezbollah.

But in south Lebanon – Hezbollah’s frontline with Israel – attention remains concentrated on war with Israel.

“The fighters in the south do not bother themselves with the tensions in Beirut. They are completely focused on the struggle against Israel,” says Ali.

Ahmadinejad is to attend a rally in the Hezbollah-controlled southern suburbs of Beirut Wednesday evening.

But the highlight of his trip will be his visit to south Lebanon on Thursday. He is scheduled to attend rallies in Bint Jbeil, a town that was heavily damaged in the 2006 war, and the village of Qana, scene of two Israeli massacres of Lebanese civilians in artillery shelling and air strikes in 1996 and 2006."

"Huge pictures of the Iranian leader were also on display along with flower baskets placed along the airport road and large balloons in the red, green and white colors of the Iranian flag."

Many streets leading to the airport, located near Hizbullah's stronghold in the southern suburbs, were cordoned off amid tight security. The downtown area near the hotel where Ahmadinejad is staying was also off limits to traffic.

"I am here to express my support for the Islamic Republic of Iran," said Afaf as she stood outside the airport with her two children waving Iranian flags.

"Along with Iran, we are engaged in the same battle against Israel".

Although Ahmadinejad is sure to receive a rapturous welcome from Hizbullah and its allies, his two-day official trip has sparked criticism among Lebanon's parliamentary majority who see it as a bid to portray Lebanon as "an Iranian base on the Mediterranean."

"Ahmadinejad's visit is Iran's way of sending a clear message about its influence in the region, especially to the United States and Israel."

"Of course that usually is portrayed to mean that the Iranians are going to warn how much trouble they can cause, but the flip side of the message has always been, especially in recent years, look how much good we can do, look how much influence we have to help restrain things," Middle East analyst Marc Sirois said."

'We'll stand by Lebanon'

"Following the meeting, Ahmadinejad thanked his hosts: "I would like to thank everyone, and especially the Lebanese people who came out to welcome their brothers. They showcased Lebanon's power and we thank them for that. I feel as though I'm at home, in my homeland among my brothers."

Turning his attention to the Iran-Lebanon relationship, Ahmadinejad said: "Lebanon changed the hostility equation in the region and tilted the balance in favor of its people. We are two peoples that love each other. We have joint interests. The discussions were positive and constructive, and we signed a series of agreements."

"We want Lebanon to be united and strong," he said. "We'll stand by it with all our power."

Ahmadinejad ended his joint press conference with Suleiman with a "surprise." He said he granted Lebanon an advanced technological device developed by Iranian scientists that is only possessed by six countries in the world. For the time being, he did not say which device he was referring to"

"The Iranian nation will always stand beside the Lebanese nation and will never abandon them ... We will surely help the Lebanese nation against animosities, mainly staged by the Zionist regime (Israel)," he said."

In a message apparently aimed at easing months of tension between pro-Western politicians and Tehran's Shi'ite ally Hezbollah, Ahmadinejad said Iran supported a strong and unified Lebanon.

"Wednesday's rally, which saw masses gather at a local soccer field, waving Iranian flags and chanted "Welcome" in Persian"

Hezbollah Chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, who welcomed Ahmadinejad to Lebanon via a video feed from his bunker: "I welcome you here on behalf of the injured, the dead, the released prisoners and this people, who have fought to create the miracle of victory. You are a steadfast staff for the resistance."

"I come from the land of the Imam Khomeini, bearing the best wishes of the Iranian people and its leaders," Ahmadinejad told the masses.

"Lebanon is the an example and school for unwavering resistance to the world's tyrants and a university for Jihad. Visiting Lebanon and meeting the leaders is a dream come true for me."

Ahmadinejad spoke in Persian and used an interpreter.

The Iranian leader wasted no time in attacking Israel for violating the Palestinians' rights: "Do you see anything but crimes in the past actions of the Zionist regime? The massacre of innocent people, the use of weapons, razing homes, confiscating medicine, food and water, attacking civilians in international waters and threatening the world is an everyday occurrence for them."

The West, he added, considers Israel "means of dominating the world," and to that end it has given it nuclear weapons.

Turning his attention to the Second Lebanon War and Operation Cast Lead, the Iranian president said the two military campaigns "exposed Israel's weakness… it is also possible that those barbaric Zionists will seek a new regional adventure to try and compensate. I say – any attack will only bring this phony regime closer to its end."

As for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the talks are taking place while Israel "is perpetuating the occupation and disrespects International Law," he said. "The only way to resolve the problems in Palestine and bring peace to the region is to recognize the rights of the Palestinians, allow the refugees to return to their land and send the conquerors back to their homelands"

Ahmadinejad accused Israel once more of kidnapping four Iranian diplomats 28 years ago. Israel has denied any involvement in the case, but according to the Iranian leader, "There is clear documentation that they are alive and held in a Zionist prison. The Zionists are responsible for their well being and must allow the Red Cross to visit them."

"The Iranian and Palestinian plan is to see all the land, from river to sea, return to its owners. This was Khomeini's stand and Ahmadinejad said as much in his UN address – Israel is not a legitimate country. As for Lebanon, they want it to be a liberated, respectable country."

"Speaking via video link during a mass rally organized by Hizbullah in honor of visiting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad"

Nasrallah added: "There are those ... who speak of an Iranian scheme for Palestine, for Lebanon, for the Arab region ... and work to strike fear into governments and peoples."

"What Iran wants for Lebanon is what the Lebanese want. What Iran wants in Palestine is what the Palestinians want. That is the Iranian scheme."

"President Ahmadinejad is right when he says Israel is illegitimate and should cease to exist," Nasrallah told an ecstatic crowd of tens of thousands that gathered at the Raya stadium in Beirut Southern Suburbs.

Ahmadinejad, who has called Israel a "tumor," has denied the Holocaust and repeatedly said the Jewish state is "doomed to be wiped off the map."

As recently as last month, he said the people of the Middle East are "capable of removing the Zionist regime" from the world scene."

"Ahmadinejad went on to denigrate "the Zionist entity

as the embodiment of the deception of the capitalist world order and the materialistic ideas."

He spoke of major change awaiting the world starting from "our region" and explained: "A resistance front has been formed by the peoples of Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Turkey, Iran, Iraq and all the region."

Iraq's Maliki in Syria to mend strained ties

"The leaders of Iraq and Syria met on Wednesday for the first time since withdrawing envoys from each other's capitals last year, as Iraq's Nuri al-Maliki seeks regional support to remain in power.

He has had a troubled relationship with Syria but has recently sought to mend ties. Last month the two countries agreed to restore ambassadors which both sides withdrew last year after Maliki accused Damascus of shielding bombers that killed 100 people in Baghdad.

A Syrian official statement said President Bashar al-Assad had emphasized "the importance of coming up with a unity cabinet" for Iraq during his meeting with Maliki.

Maliki, a Shi'ite, has already received backing for his bid to remain in power from Shi'ite groups with links to Iran."

"Assad said he was "happy" that improving ties between Baghdad and Damascus "will be strengthened and completed with the formation of the Iraqi government soon,"

according to a statement from Maliki's office, "Our attitude about the formation of the government is clear: the solution must be Iraqi," Assad was quoted as saying.

"Iraq has a great history, no one can order" it what to do, the Syrian leader said, adding: "Iraqis own that decision."

The statement was issued after Maliki arrived in Damascus and held talks with Assad following a year-long row as the Iraqi leader seeks to win support for his bid to remain in power.

It said the two leaders "discussed the improving of relations between the two countries to serve the joint interest and strengthen security and stability in the area."

These horns shall bring about more failure for Israel (lost & found)

Nato troops killed in Afghanistan

"Six Nato soldiers have been killed in three separate attacks in Afghanistan, the latest casualties as the war enters its tenth year.

A bomb explosion in the south killed four of the soldiers, the international alliance announced on Wednesday. Two other soldiers died in separate attacks, as military deaths hit record highs since the war began in 2001.

More than half of the 2,000 foreign troops who have died since then were killed in the last two years.

In keeping with Nato policy, the nationalities of the victims were not given.

The surge in military deaths has been attributed to increased operations by coalition forces and their Afghan partners in some of the most dangerous parts of the country where the Taliban have a strong presence.

About 40,000 extra US troops were deployed this year under the White House's new war strategy for Afghanistan.

The military build-up is aimed at rooting out Taliban and other armed groups before Washington starts drawing down the number of troops next year"

Do you also see how the May 15th Prophecy have steered you to the correct truth of the realities on the ground?

As oppose to the fairy tales lies; like those of the false prophets, remember how they where telling you how a great Christian revival was happening in Iraq trying to get you to support the war effort there?

But the true reality was proclaimed by the May 15th Prophecy

Mideast conflict blamed for Christian exodus

"Bishops summoned to the Vatican to discuss the flight of Christians from the Middle East have blamed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for spurring much of the exodus and warned that the consequences could be devastating for the birthplace of Christianity.

Some bishops have singled out the emergence of fanatical Islam for the flight. But others have directly or indirectly accused Israel of discriminating against Arab Christians and impeding solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

In Iraq alone, Catholics represented 2.89 percent of the population in 1980; by 2008 they were just .89 percent. In Israel, home to important Christian holy sites, Catholics made up 3.8 percent of the population in 1980; by 2008 they were just 1.82 percent.

Some 185 bishops are taking part in the synod from Latin and Eastern rite Catholic churches across the region and from the diaspora. In addition, two Muslim imams and a rabbi were invited to address the synod.

Patriarch Gregory III, archbishop of the Greek-Melkites in Damascus, Syria, said fundamentalist movements such as Hamas or Hezbollah had been born from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and warned Tuesday that the resulting flight of Christians would make a "society with only one color: only Muslim."

"While many including the Holy See have suggested a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, the more time passes, the more difficult such a solution becomes, as the building of Israeli settlements and Israeli-controlled infrastructure in East Jerusalem and in other parts of the West Bank make increasingly difficult the development of a viable and integral Palestinian state"
