Israeli interests are not necessarily in harmony with the American interests.
I am not a puppet. I was not made by the West to go to the West or to any other country.
You in Lebanon, your power is no match to Israel. Israel, militarily, is more powerful than you and maybe it is more powerful than all the Arab countries, or most of them.
We have more difficult circumstances than most of the Arab countries but in spite of that Syria is stable. Why? Because you have to be very closely linked to the beliefs of the people. This is the core issue.
The Israeli lobby has clout in the U.S., which means that re-arranging the region and controlling its resources one way or another, will serve Israel through its control over the American administration.
No doubt that the U.S. is a super-power capable of conquering a relatively small country, but is it able to control it?
Is there an equality of power between America and Iraq? Definitely not; however, the Iraqi people are standing fast and are defending their land courageously.
When we analyze this war in a materialistic way and ask when is it going to end and who will be the winner and the loser, it means that we do not see the endgame.
The most significant indicator that there is no disaster in Iraq is the fact that there is no exodus.
It is even more so when it comes to Iraq, which is a large Arab country with scientific, material, and human resources and is able to accomplish, at the least, what Lebanon accomplished, and more.
Since its very inception, Israel has been a threat.
As soon as the legitimate Lebanese government is convinced that the conditions have ripened and that Lebanon is able to maintain stability on its own... Then, the Syrian forces will return to their homeland.
The logical thing is to implement the Arab Defense Agreement.
Hizbullah is not a militia.
We, in Syria, our point of view stems from our experience.
Worry does not mean fear, but readiness for the confrontation.
Despite the ethnic diversity within each nation, the social fabric of the region by and large is one.
I am Syrian, I was made in Syria, I have to live in Syria and die in Syria.
It should be known that Israel is based on treachery.
We are dealing with treachery and threats, which accompanied the establishment of Israel.
