Lebanon's Hizbullah Publicly Condemns Libya's al-Qadhafi for "Massacres" and Backs Anti-Regime Forces in Memory of Musa al-Sadr

Musa al-Sadr and the logo of the party he founded in 1974, Afwaj al-Muqawamah al-Lubnaniyyah (Lebanese Resistance Detachments), known more commonly by its Arabic acronym AMAL.

UPDATE (March 5, 2011): English translation is now below the Arabic original

The Lebanese Twelver Shi'i political party Hizbullah (God's Party; Hezbollah, Hizballah) has condemned "massacres" committed by Libyan autocrat Mu'ammar al-Qadhafi (Qaddafi, Gaddafi, Kadafi) against his own people. The party issued an official statement on February 23 and said that it could no longer remain silent on the issue. It linked "the tyrant" al-Qadhafi to the disappearance of al-Sayyid Musa al-Sadr, a charismatic Iranian Shi'i leader of Lebanese descent and citizenship who disappeared on a trip to Libya in 1978. Hizbullah also condemned the corruption and injustice of the al-Qadhafi regime and prays for the victory of anti-Qadhafi forces.

حزب الله في بيان حول المجازر التي يرتكبها نظام القذافي في ليبيا:

تعليقا على المجازر التي يرتكبها نظام القذافي في ليبيا، أصدر حزب الله البيان التالي :

إنّ أي شريف وصاحب ضمير في هذا العالم لا يمكنه ولا يجوز له السكوت عن المجازر التي بات يرتكبها نظام القذافي يوميا وفي العديد من المدن الليبية وفي مقدمتها بنغازي، غافلا عن أنّ البطش والترهيب لا يحميان نظاماً قام على الفساد والغرور والجريمة أمام إرادة وعزيمة شعب اتخذ قراره الحازم .

إننا في حزب الله نعبّر عن إدانتنا الشديدة لجرائم نظام القذافي بحق أبناء الشعب الليبي المجاهد والمظلوم، كما ننحني إجلالاً أمام أرواح مئات الشهداء الأبرار الذين قتلوا ظلماً وفقط لأنهم طلاب حق، ونشد على أيدي الثائرين في ليبيا داعين لهم بالنصر على هذا الطاغية المتكبر .

ونحن كلبنانيين كنّا من أوائل من أصابهم إجرام هذا الطاغية بالصميم عندما قام باختطاف "إمام المقاومة" سماحة الإمام السيد موسى الصدر مع رفيقيه العزيزين، راجين من الله تعالى أن يوفق ثوار ليبيا الشرفاء لتحرير الإمام الصدر وصحبه كما تحرير ليبيا وشعبها من كل القيود .

Hizbullah Condemns Gaddafi Regime’s Massacres in Libya, Praises Revolutionists for Their Rightful Path

Commenting on the massacres conducted by the Gaddafi regime in Libya, Hizbullah issued the following statement:

Any man of honor and conscience in this world should not remain silent regarding the massacres now conducted by the Gaddafi regime on a daily basis in many Libyan cities including Benghazi.

Gaddafi is unaware that oppression and intimidation do not protect a regime based on corruption and crime, against the will and determination of a nation that adopted its firm decision.

Hizbullah strictly condemns the crimes of the Gaddafi regime practiced against the struggling oppressed Libyan people.

Hizbullah also pays tribute to the souls of hundreds of righteous martyrs, who were killed just for being seekers of right. We praise the revolutionists in Libya, hoping they achieve victory against this arrogant tyrant.

As Lebanese, we were the first to convict this tyrant of crime, when he kidnapped the Resistance Imam, His Eminence Sayyed Moussa As-Sader and his dear friends.

We ask Allah to be with Libya's honorable revolutionists until the liberation of Imam As-Sader and his friends, in addition to the freedom of Libya and its people from all constraints.
