Mleeta the Pride

I had the honor to visit Mleeta tourist edifice after I
received a generous invitation from Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah.
I toured the parts of this town of courage, closely
encountered this tourist landmark that the resistance brave
fighters built to become a beacon for each visitor who
should be proud of what the achievements of the
When I arrived in Mleeta, I was welcomed by the resistance
men who accompanied me for a tour throughout this historic
village, the landmarks of which witnessed the best battles
that the resistance militants fought successfully, giving
the Israelis a hard lesson, which they will never forget.
I felt that the spirit of heroism was inspiring faith into
the hearts of the Mujahideen. I saw with my own eyes the
enemy tanks, weapons, equipment and arsenal being taken by
those proud and highly-esteemed men. I could even sense how
enemy soldiers ran away from battlefields, leaving behind
their helmets and shoes, in fear of meeting the resistance
heroes and their brave army. They also showed me a movie and
pieces of the film of the great victory inside a hall that
also displayed accurate and valuable information on the
enemy and its weapons, army, structure, system, programs,
and other things the enemy thought was unreachable.
Everyone who visits this edifice will find all enemy taboos
available on sight. Hence, where is the legend of that army,
which claims to be invincible? What drew my attention most
was the reality of that board that noted words of the
Zionist entity leaders, settlers and soldiers, admitting the
might and readiness of the resistance coupled with rigidity
and strong will of its men.
I was moved to tears by a grave that was prepared by one of
those heroes for his final rest, informing the enemy that
the Mujahidoon have sworn to death in the way of Allah, and
that they love to meet Allah the Exalted unlike the enemies
who love adhering to this mortal life. However, the shells
of the enemy army deprived him of his sight and of
fulfilling his wish. Hence, he would cry in tears because he
did not win the honor of being martyred and buried inside
I was truly impressed by the information on the enemy, which
the resistance men had in possession. “Abu Ali” one of the
heroes explained to me their psychology, shattered morale,
how they swiftly ran away from the battlefield, how the
enemy tried to inspire this spirit of defeat within our
lines in an attempt to frustrate us to reach the point where
we would subdue to coexist with them; away with them.
“Abu Ali” gave me an example, “A small fish and a large fish
with a glassy barrier between them. Whenever the large fish
tries to reach the small fish it bumps into the glassy
barrier. In the end, the large fish accepts coexistence with
the small fish; but in our case, away with them. Besides,
the enemy in all cases tries to resolve the battles quickly
in order to avoid costly losses and keep its soldiers morale
high, otherwise it would lead to losing the battle.
Therefore, the Mujahidoon worked on stretching the fight
hence, the Islamic resistance succeeded in inflicting defeat
upon the Israeli army. All its intelligence attempts failed
in guessing the time and place of the resistance attacks,
thus lost the advantage for a pre-emptive strike.
The enemy’s culture is based on initiation and surprise
attack thinking that this issue will break the bones of the
resistance. This was never the case. The resistance fighters
broke this rule along with all these illusions and they
refused all methods of coexistence with the enemy. They
managed to defeat the enemy, which was the one that
initiated tyranny and attack, which in fact was a suicide
mission for the enemy. In fact, describing the case can take
long time. The issues that I saw gratified me.
I advise my fellow Arabs, should they visit beautiful
Lebanon some day, to give part of their time in order to
visit this great fort because it contains images of pride
and self-esteem. I assure my fellow Muslims and Arabs that
anyone who visits Mleeta will be graced and will breathe the
pure air that is filled with dignity, pride and self-esteem.
It is the production of the blood of martyrs who are living
in a paradise of eternity, God willing.
Finally, I repeat my appreciation and gratitude to the
resistance heroes and the master of the divine victory who
made me proud. To them I say, “God bless you all.
Congratulations for the anniversary of the glorious
liberation, which broke the legend of the Zionist army.
Congratulations to all Moslems and Arabs for these heroes
who made us proud with our heads high. They struck the
Zionist enemy right in its weak spot. God bless you all and
rendered you succeed on your way to defeating your enemies.
God strengthen you with righteousness.”
“If ye will aid (the cause of) God, He will aid you…”
