This is the
final surgery to extract the cancer named Hezbollah from our homeland, Lebanon
By: Charles Jalkh
In the seventies, Palestinian terrorists used to hijack a plane and take
couple hundred people hostages and shock the world. On July 13, Hezbollah
took 3 million Lebanese hostages and pushed them into an inferno. He
brought 6 billion humans one step closer to their third world war. This is
the largest act of terrorism in history. This is a weapon of mass destruction
that has been used. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nassrallah has earned his place in
the trash bin of human history. His name will be engraved for ever next to Bin
Laden, Adolf Hitler, Genghis Khan down there in the demons underworld.
Nassrallah cowardly struck the Lebanese people in the back, and shamelessly declared on his TV station, that the “war is here whether the Lebanese accept or refuse it”. Such arrogance! Such complete disregard of the basic human norms of decency! All Lebanese groups had urged and negotiated tirelessly with Hezbollah for 15 months offering creative scenarios to convince Hezbollah to integrate in the Lebanese society as full and respected citizenry under the laws the nation but they refused obstinately and finally declared a total war on Lebanon and Israel, to serve their black hearted masters in Damascus and Teheran.
There is a different spirit in the air nowadays among the world public opinions. All nations are united in condemning Hezbollah’s war, including the vast majority of the Arab League, all except Syria and Iran. The Israeli public is also solemnly united and determined to permanently erase Hezbollah from existence as we know it today. I, as a Free Lebanese, also full heartedly support the full and unconditional surrender of Hezbollah which must be dismantled immediately. Other Lebanese however, are not yet voicing their opinions clearly. They lived as hostages under 30 years of Syrian instigated wars and became free just last year.
But I predict that as the days pass, and as Hezbollah’s military strength dwindles down towards 10 or 5 percent of its former strength, more Lebanese voices shall rise with greater clarity to explicitly condemn Hezbollah’s actions and even take action against it. The arrest and trials of all Hezbollah leadership for crimes against humanity is now a very strong possibility.
The critical element here is that the world community should not backup from
complete victory against Hezbollah thus leaving the Lebanese alone and exposed
to the wrath of Hezbollah, Syria, and Iran. In 1982, the world committed
that mistake by ending the fight with the Syrian regime standing, thus giving
it a second chance to create Hezbollah and continue its mischief. This time
around, the civilized world must finish the job, and crush the Assad
Dictatorship, free the Syrian people, then confine Iran back to its own
borders, and then Middle East peace will be established.
There will be lots of work ahead. The Lebanese Shiites will need to be de-programmed from decades of Syrian/Iranian indoctrination. They need to be brought into their proper and respected role in Lebanese society equal under the law of the land. The current materiel, emotional, and psychological pain inflicted on half a million Shiites refugees in Lebanon is a form of collective incentive to associate Hezbollah with their pain. A tragic Cause and Effect.
The rest of the Lebanese; the Druze, Sunnites, and Christians, and many patriot Shiites as well, are clear minded about our Lebanese distinct identity, our independence, our cherished freedoms, and we are all united under the Cedars Revolution. We all support the International community in its decision to disband Hezbollah.
We must answer the call to courage, launched by Israel’s UN Ambassador to
join forces and rid ourselves of a common, deadly, and savage enemy. This is
the final surgery to extract the cancer named Hezbollah from our homeland.
Lebanon has been destroyed many times before and we Lebanese have rebuilt Her, and shall rise again.
There is unbearable pain, but I am confident that after this crisis, Lebanon shall rise up again and 100 years Golden Age of peace and prosperity shall follow.
