[list_indonesia] [ppiindia] memahami *Hezbollah* di Lebanon

** Mailing-List Indonesia Nasional Milis PPI-India www.ppi-india.da.ru **




baru-baru ini, setelah didesak oleh Perancis,
pelan-pelan Amerika mulai merubah sikapnya
terhadap Hezbollah, dan akhirnya mengeluarkan 
pernyataan "mengakui" keberadaan Hezbollah 
sebagai bagian nyata dari bangunan bangsa 
Libanon.

Propaganda Amerika bahwa Hezbollah organisasi
"teroris" adalah propaganda rutin yang 
membodohkan publik, khususnya publik Amerika
sendiri. Perang saudara di Lebanon tahun
70an-80an adalah perang saudara dengan
konstelasi politik yang pelik. Jika pada
saat itu Amerika merasa diserang dan dirugikan
oleh gerilyawan Hezbollah, adalah karena pada
waktu itu Amerika turut campur (seperti biasa)
dan memihak milisi Falangiz yang bermusuhan
dengan milisi Hezbollah. Demikian pula Israel
juga berpihak pada unsur-unsur yang berlawanan
dengan Hezbollah.

Bagi Lebanon, Hezbollah lah yang berjasa 
mengusir Israel dari Lebanon selatan. Hezbollah
bukan hanya organisasi milisi, tetapi sudah
menjadi suatu *social order*. Organisasi ini
juga mendirikan berbagai institusi sosial,
ekonomi, politik, termasuk sekolah dan rumah
sakit di Lebanon.

Menurut jurnalis kawakan di Jerman, Peter S.
Latour, yang telah banyak melakukan perjalanan 
dan riset di berbagai negara-2 Muslim, Hezbollah
mungkin adalah satu-2 nya komunitas Muslim di 
di dunia yang sangat sulit ditembus oleh
organisasi intelijen Israel (Mossad).

Desakan "masyarakat internasional" - yang sebetulnya
dimotori oleh Amerika - agar Pasukan Syria ditarik
dari Lebanon, memang sulit dibantah dari kacamata
prinsip-2 kedaulatan Lebanon. Tetapi orang tidak
bisa melupakan begitu saja peran atau jasa pasukan
Syria sebagai pasukan * stabilisator * yang akhirnya
juga berperan dalam * nation rebuilding * nya Lebanon,
membantu Lebanon mencapai suasana damai kembali yang
hari ini mereka nikmati. 

Jadi secara hakekat apa bedanya peran pasukan Lebanon
(dengan berbagai aparat intelijennya) di Lebanon
dengan peran pasukan *stabilisator barat* yang selama
ini bercokol di berbagi tempat di muka bumi? :
Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, dan Iraq?  Apakah
kedatangan pasukan Amerika dan Inggris di Iraq tahun
2003 benar atas "undang"an rakyat Irak? apakah
benar kedatangan mereka atas "undangan" PBB?

Pasukan Syria tidak boleh bercokol di negara lain,
karena kulit mereka tidak bule, .. as simple as
that ...

Understanding Hezbollah
------------------------

Of Lebanon
By Sam Hamod, PhD
3-13-5
 

It is time America understood Hezbollah for what it really is, not
what the Israelis and their Zionist friends say it is. Unfortunately,
our President, Bush, and Conde Rice, misunderstand, or prefer to
remain ignorant of, the truth about Hezbollah.
 
Hezbollah is a social, political, educational, medical and military
organization based primarily among the Shi'a of Lebanon. In addition,
Hezbollah also includes many Sunni and even Christians who ally
themselves with Hezbollah because of the good this organization does
in Lebanon. Many of the doctors who work in their centers, as well as
teachers in their schools are Christian and Druze.
 
As the Christian President of Lebanon, Emile Lahoud said of Hezbollah,
when it was under attack by Presiden Bush, "Hezbollah is an integral
part of the Lebanese government, it is also part of our military, it
part of our social order." This was echoed by the late, beloved, Prime
Minister, Rafik Harriri.
 
This is the truth about Hezbollah; not what Bush and his Zionist
cronies, and the uneducated Conde Rice has to say about the organization.
 
Let us look at what Hezbollah has done in Lebanon: it has set up over
50 hospitals; it has set up over 100 schools (secular schools
primarily) and many libraries; it has participated in the governing of
Lebanon in the parliament and in the life of the country; it has
driven the Israelis out of southern Lebanon and kept them out-to this
day, it is the force that stands guard against another Israeli
invasion of Lebanon. Many of us who witnessed that, and Robert Fisk,
the esteemed, award-winning columnist for the Independent of the
United Kingdom, will back me up on this, we saw Hezbollah fighters,
armed with small arms, mines, bazookas chase the Israeli tanks,
Bradley fighting vehicles, armored cars and troops out of Lebanon. It
was an amazing sight to behold; this is fact. Even with planes and
helicopters, the Israelis could not sustain themselves in Lebanon;
they were defeated by the Hezbollah. They have sought political
revenge ever since.
 
Thus, at this point, Israel is the biggest campaigner to have
Hezbollah labeled a "terrorist organization" by the world-but all that
Hezbollah did was to kick the Israelis out of Lebanese land-to kick
the occupying Israeli IDF off of Lebanese soil This was defensive
action; not offensive action.
 
Hezbollah has never invaded Israel, nor has Hezbollah ever attacked
Americans-though the U.S. media said it has.This is nothing but a lie.
True, some of the Shi'a did fight back, as Amal, against the Americans
when the American troops were siding with the Falangist Gemeyal family
in attacking the Muslims, especially the Shi'a-but it was not then
Hezbollah and every honest historian knows this. But there is no end
to lies that the Zionists will go to because of 
their shame at being beaten by Hezbollah.
 
So why is Hezbollah labeled as a "terrorist organization"-it's pure
and simple, because it is a strong nationalist Lebanese force that
refuses to bow to Israel or America or the Falangists.
 
Remember in America the patriots who fought against the British;
Hezbollah is like those American patriots-just fighting for their
land, their country. As an American, I am all for that. Any decent,
educated and moral human being is for that.
 
We must call those who label as liars those who call Hezbollah a
"terrorist organization" because they have no facts to back up their
assertions. That Hezbollah defeated the Israelis is a fact, that the
Israelis were an illegal occupying force in southern Lebanon (the area
of the Shi'a) is a fact, that Hezbollah is now part of the Lebanese
defense forces is a fact, that Hezbollah ever attacked American troops
is an out and out lie.
 
It is time the world, especially the American people, knew the truth
about Hezbollah and its charitable work, its social work, its medical
work, its educational work and its standing in the hearts of most
Lebanese and its standing in the Lebanese government. The lies of
President Bush and his mistress of state, Conde Rice, must be undone.
Tell your friends the truth; perhaps in that way, the truth will
prevail over the propaganda Bush and Rice are putting out in the world.
