The Lebanese Communist Party issued the following statement on July
Our Lebanese People:
The army of the Zionist enemy
is continuing its aggression against Lebanon for its third consecutive week.
From its very beginning stage, this aggression has taken the form of a savage
predatory war. Neither man nor stone is safe from its fiery hell, nor are human
and civil institutions, the media, or the infrastructure. The Zionist killing
machine has most recently targeted even international observers.
savage raging storm that took as its pretext the kidnapping of two Israeli
soldiers has exceeded all possible responses in such circumstances as it seeks
to wreak vengeance on Lebanon and its people in an attempt to inflict the
greatest possible harm to Lebanon under the heading of destroying the military
and command structure of Hezbollah with the most intensely destructive and
deadly weapons and with the most cowardly and barbaric means.
States has revealed itself as a vicious and shameless participant in this war.
Its administration has proclaimed openly that it hopes to see the “dawn of
a new Middle East,” completing its plan for seizing control of the region,
its resources, and the destinies of its people, a plan that was launched with
the American invasion of Iraq more than three years ago.
Zionist air force, navy, and artillery have continued to kill and destroy, they
have failed to achieve their assigned goals and so the Zionists have now been
compelled to launch a ground offensive, something they have tried to avoid since
their ignoble departure from Lebanon in the year 2000.
For a week now
they have been trying to advance in order to occupy Lebanese lands in the
district of Bint-Jbeil, specifically the Marun ar-Ras junction, the town of
Bint-Jbeil, and the surrounding area. Those murderers are trying to occupy and
desecrate our holy land once again, to impose their conditions and the
conditions of their masters by means of the killing, massacres, displacement,
and destruction at which the Zionist war machine excels in criminality and
And as usual, Washington is backing them up and supporting them;
even if that means that it must oppose the whole world!
The viciousness of
the aggression and the dangerous goals it has set itself place serious
responsibilities upon the people of Lebanon: to repulse, resist, and frustrate
its aims. They also obligate the Lebanese government to abandon the policy of
complicity, complacency, or dreaming about American or
The United States is a participant
in the aggression and it must be treated firmly on this basis.
and government must unite in the confrontation, taking all the necessary stances
and measures on the level of policy, military action, security, and
people’s livelihood. To this end we need a real government of national
unity that distinguishes between Lebanon’s friends and enemies in the
light of the results of the aggression, a government that constitutes a real
backer and partner with the heroes of the resistance who once again are the
makers of Lebanon’s glory, defending its land, sovereignty, unity, and
existence in the face of the criminal American-Zionist war machine.
Lebanese People: Israel is trying once again to occupy parts of the land of
Lebanon, to destroy its people, and its civilization.
resistance continues to make heroic sacrifices and score heroic victories. Our
army is standing steadfast after its officers and men were targeted in what
amounted to a cowardly assassination attempt. At this time duty to the homeland
calls on us to join in the resistance struggle and stand up to the occupiers and
This is our duty as political parties, leftist and
democratic patriotic forces, personalities, and fighters who once played an
honorable part in defending the homeland against aggression, who in the Lebanese
National Resistance Front in 1982 and afterwards performed acts of heroism that
our people remember with pride and glory.
We call on our youth to bring
back that experience, to take inspiration from it, and build upon it, joining
the resistance struggle by standing steadfast in their villages and towns. We
call on them to take up arms and meet the hordes of the aggressor in defense of
our land, our sovereignty, our people, and all things we hold sacred.
homeland is passing through a historic stage. Our people will triumph, bringing
in the dawn of freedom, sovereignty, and unity for our homeland and Arab nation,
vanquishing and routing all those who would plunder, invade, and occupy.
