Secretary General of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance Movement, Sayed Hassan Nasrallah underlined that the West's goal was isolation of the Resistance, so they focused on religious and tribal conflicts.

"They tried to pretend that this victory was for a certain party or tribal but as I said in August 2006, the victory belongs to all of Lebanese people, all Arabs and all of the Muslims and freedom seekers around the world," Nasrallah said.

"The West wants to sow the seeds of discord among us. This is their plot. When we fight each other, they will succeed and we will defeat," he added.

"We said that we were fighting as representative of Islamic Ummah. If we were defeated in that war, it would have affected the fate of Palestine, Syria, Iraq and even Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt," Nasrallah said.

"If the Resistance had been failed, Jordan would have changed into the everlasting residence for Palestinians and the Saudi Arabia would have been separated," he revealed.

"We nipped the new Middle East plan in the bud, Nasrallah said, warning that "they want to revive it again."

Pointing to remarks of the World Zionism founder, Teodor Hertzel that had said" we should establish common wealth union in the Middle East in which the 'Jew state' has an active role," Nasrallah warned all of Lebanese and Arabs about Zionists' old plot.

"The West wanted to carry out two plots. First, they planned to make a powerful human shield to separate the Arab countries in west of the Suez Canal from those in eastern part of the Canal. Second, they wanted to make the Suez Canal, enemy of the regional nations. So they established 'Israel' in line with the mentioned goals, he added.

"The West tried to separate the Arabic homeland to smaller parts and it was happened," Nasrallah said.

"America tried to establish some states in the region to put them in permanent religious and racial enemity. It wants to make the Zionist regime the gendarme in the region," Nasrallah warned.

"We (Islamic Ummah) should be vigilant. We should recognize priorities and resist against the plots with unity and solidarity," he added.

"We are the nations of this region. We are the owners of it. We are the inhabitants of the region and we have right to live here with freedom and take advantage of its natural properties," Nasrallah reiterated.
A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict -- 'Occupation 101' presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions. The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.

The film covers a wide range of topics -- which include -- the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880's, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.
