The joint military maneuvers that are underway in the Red Sea region involving the UAE, Bahrain, the US, and the illegal Zionist entity have been aptly called “a dagger in the heart of al-Qods, Palestine and all the nations of the region.”
According to a senior official of Lebanon’s legendry anti-terrorist movement, the Hezbollah these nefarious naval exercises “encourages the Zionist enemy to carry out further acts of aggression against Lebanon and Palestine, and is a stain of shame on the foreheads of the leaders of the normalization with the Zionist regime.”
Hojjat al-Islam Nabil Qaouk was not exaggerating. He was simply pointing to facts by noting the bragging to reporters of an Israeli naval that “such military cooperation under US auspices could help counter Iran in the region.”
What has the Islamic Republic of Iran done to become the target of the US and its accomplices in the region – the rootless and unrepresentative Arab regimes and the Zionists?
Nothing wrong, except calling on regional countries to rid the region of “extra-regional forces” in order to establish sustainable security cooperation and coordination!
As a matter of fact, the Arab-Israelite alliance, whether covert or overt, is not a new phenomenon resulting from the so-called ‘Abraham Accord’ of the US that emboldened the UAE and Bahrain to establish open diplomatic ties and exchange ambassadors after funding takfiri terrorists to destabilize Syria, branding Lebanon’s Hezbollah as ‘terrorist’, backstabbing Palestinian Muslims, and vilifying the Islamic Iran for its selfless efforts to foster Islamic unity for the cherished goal of liberating Islam’s former qibla the al-Aqsa Mosque.
In the light of historical realities, this unholy alliance has always been a dagger aimed at the heart of Islam and Muslims ever since the time of the Almighty’s Last and Greatest Messenger.
Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) had blunted this dagger by expelling from Medina the treacherous Israelite tribes of Banu Nadhir and Banu Qaynuqa which then ganged up with the pagan Arabs to launch the abortive Battle of the Confederates.
He then broke the Arab-Israeli alliance into pieces during the famous campaign of Khaybar, thanks to the flashing blade of his cousin, son-in-law, and vicegerent, Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (AS).
In due course, the Israelite tribes of Arabia and the diehard pagan Arabs felt no other choice other than paying lip service to Islam, but they never became true Muslims and turned out to be hypocrites harbouring malice deep down in their hearts against the solidarity of the Ummah.
With the illegitimate birth of Israel on Palestinian soil in 1948 when several Arab Muslim countries started their joint campaign to nip the Zionists in the bud, the hypocrites serving Anglo-American imperialist interests schemed to turn the tide of the war from victory into defeat – a scenario that was repeated in 1967 and 1973, before reaching climax in 1978 at Camp David, US, with Anwar Sadaat’s scandalous accord.
The grand victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 and the dynamic measures of Imam Khomeini in designating the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) as Islamic Unity Week and the Last Friday of the month of Ramadhan as Qods International Day for mobilizing world Muslims for the campaign to liberate Palestine, horrified the hypocrites who now clung more firmly to the US apron and under its cover, to Israel.
As Iran braved the illegal American sanctions to emerge as the paramount power in the region by working closely with like-minded independent forces in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq, Yemen, and elsewhere, the hitherto covert Arab-Israeli alliance was encouraged by godfather US to come out into the open.
It is now the major threat to the security of the independent countries of the region, especially Syria and Iraq, which have defeated a devilish plot by the Americans, the Zionists and the Arab reactionaries.
It is, however, not invincible, as the conspirators make it out to be. It could be defeated provided the heads of the countries of the region come to their senses and realize the avowed enmity of the Israelites against Islam and the hypocrisy of their allies, the rootless and unrepresentative regimes of the Persian Gulf.
