Hezbollah representative invited to speak at Fatah rally

“The PLO celebrated the anniversary of the the Launch (Intilaqa – i.e., the launch of Fatah on Jan. 1, 1965, when it carried out its first terror attack against Israel, attempting to bomb Israel's National Water Carrier - Eds.) with a central mass rally in the Lebanese capital Beirut, with the participation of the Palestinian ambassador to Lebanon, Ashraf Dabbour… and representatives of the various Lebanese, Arab and international parties, [security] forces, factions and institutions.
Hassan Haballah gave a speech on behalf of Hezbollah, in which he said: ‘The meaning of the outbreak of the resistance and the revolution is that we will attain liberation. Every nation in which the flame of resistance burns, or which strives to regain its rights, will doubtless attain their goal and triumph – even if it takes a long time. This is the lesson we’ve learned from all our experiences and those of human history.’
He said: ‘Today marks 50 years since the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution. 50 years is not long in the history of nation, and there are revolutions that lasted longer. This is no cause for despair, and today we are closer to victory, despite the difficult situation in our land, and no matter how difficult the circumstances – for the enemy has understood that the resistance is now close to victory.’”
