Hizbullah Helped Save Syria From Complete Destruction… We Should All Be Thankful


One of the key participants in the Syrian conflict, Hizbullah, is also one of the most overlooked players in the region. Since the start of the civil war, Hizbullah played a key role both militarily and politically, in order to protect Syria and it government from outside meddlers and illegal foreign interventions. Hizbullah is a predominantly-Shi’ite Muslim political party in Lebanon, which boasts one of the strongest militaries in the Middle East. Hizbullah isn’t new to military success; in 2006, it swiftly defeated the Israeli army in under two months and expelled it from south Lebanon.

Since the start of the conflict, Hizbullah was part of the military operations in Syria with great success. Since 2012-13, around 2,000 to 5,000 Hizbullah soldiers participated or are currently active in the conflict; however, this number could be higher or lower due to variable sources. Hizbullah played a crucial role in many operations with the Syrian Arab Army in areas such as Aleppo, Homs, and Rif Demashq regions. The West criticised Hizbullah for its involvement in the Syrian conflict, which doesn’t come as a surprise as the EU, Canada, France, Israel, the Netherlands, the UK, and the USA wrongfully designated the group has been as a terrorist organisation… all the usual suspects. Of course, the true terrorists are the countries listed above. Without them, the Middle East would be stable and terrorism wouldn’t exist as it does today. Hizbullah is one of the few players in the world that actually fights terrorism alongside Russia, Iran, and Syria as well as others, yet the West criticises them for it.

The West had a plan to destabilise Syria; they thought they could isolate Syria just as they did with Iraq… but they failed. So naturally, they now vilify those who defended Syria from the real terrorists. Despite its critical role in helping to save Syria from destruction, Hizbullah keeps a relatively low profile. Contrast their efforts to the US-led coalition bragging about bombing empty desert, and you’ll begin to understand why the Western narrative about the war in Syria is completely upside-down. Of course, Syria’s fate is far from decided. However, like so many human triumphs over evil, Washington once again maligns and vilifies the true heroes.

Hizbullah Condemned the ISIS Massacre of Egyptian Christians


Hizbullah urged Muslims to unite in order to protect Christians from violence. Hizbullah, which the USA considers a terrorist organisation, released a statement condemning yesterday’s terrorist atrocities in Egypt that slaughtered scores of Christians on Palm Sunday. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks. The statement read (and here):

The continuous and escalating killing carried out by criminal gangs in the name of religion is one of the greatest catastrophes our Ummah (global Islamic world community) has seen. This crime is part of a large scheme to displace Christians from the Sinai Peninsula and other areas across Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon, paving the way for sectarian and ethnic federalisation in favour of the Zionist entity.

Hizbullah forms part of the so-called 4+1 coalition fighting Salafi/Wahhabi terrorism. Other members of the coalition include Russia, Iran, Syria, and Iraq. It remains a source of shock for many that the USA condemns Hizbullah in spite of its role in the fight against ISIS and al-Qaeda as well as their support of Christians throughout the wider Arab and Islamic world.

Washington Wants Coalition of Sunni Régimes to Fight Iran

00 Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi. 06.12

The Saudis can’t even defeat the poorly-equipped Houthis in Yemen… good luck fighting a well-trained well-armed Moscow-backed military. We know it’s a badly abused cliché, but we really did laugh out loud after reading that Washington is “working to create a military alliance of Sunni Arab nations” to “counter” Iran. Close your eyes and imagine NATO. Are you seeing visions of an incompetent useless dinosaur that can’t tell the difference between a wedding party and a terrorist pow-wow? Now, clear your mind and imagine a NATO-like coalition with Egypt, Jordan, the KSA, and the UAE as members. Imagine that this coalition of medieval failures had one mission and one mission only… to provoke a war with Iran.

Typical. Washington finally realised that Americans have zero interest in starting a war with Iran, despite years of tireless propaganda portraying Tehran as an existential threat to humanity… or Israel, but what’s the difference, right? They’ve tried everything… even lobbing accusations that one can easily debunk with a simple Google search. Hey, wait a minute… maybe, our medieval Sunni allies would fight Iran for us? That’d be swell. Isn’t that what friends are for? This is true desperation seeping out of Washington’s adult diapers.

Iran isn’t Syria. It doesn’t have to worry about appeasing 1,000 different ethnic and religious groups. It’s a proud country with a long history of fighting off foreign parasites. A Sunni war against Iran would’ve likely been a disaster even ten years ago. Today? It’d be suicidal. Russia is Tehran’s dependable political and military ally, and the idea that Washington would somehow drive a wedge between Moscow and Tehran is ludicrous. Russia would do everything it could to help Iran fight off Sunni fanatics, for the same reason it intervened in Syria… if Washington’s “moderates” were to overrun the Middle East, Russia would be next.

Forget the fact that Iran already deploys Russian-made S-300 SAMs, or that Russia and Iran coördinated a miraculous military campaign to turn the tables in Syria in less than a year… an experience that’d be invaluable if there were a Sunni-led war against Iran. Just for a moment, consider that Russia has gone so far as to ask Washington to acknowledge Hizbullah as a crucial part of anti-ISIS efforts in Syria. Hizbullah! The very name sends shivers up the crooked spines of every Israel First blowhard with an American passport.

People worry that Moscow would abandon Tehran? For Russia, Iran is a holy grail of business opportunities and security coöperation. There’s one takeaway from Syria… Washington loves to stir up trouble in countries that can’t defend themselves. However, when a formidable force such as Russia steps into the ring, the Americans run for the hills (crying foul, of course). Even with full support from Washington and Israel (Israel would stay in the shadows, to keep up appearances), the KSA, Qatar, and the UAE would get a Russian-backed Persian beating that they’d never forget. The icing on the cake would be that this “anti-Iran” bloc includes some of the most autocratic states on earth… anti-women, anti-democratic, anti-everything… it’d be a true joy to watch Washington claim that the KSA and Qatar were fighting Iran to protect democracy in the Middle East.

Of course, we’re probably getting ahead of ourselves. Following NATO’s model, this coalition of medieval head-choppers would first surround Iran with defensive military bases. Then, the provocations and (more) sanctions would begin. It won’t work. Iran isn’t Iraq. It isn’t Libya. It isn’t Syria. It already has the full backing of Russia. If Washington were smart, it’d take note.
