ISLAMIC-TERRORIST HEZBULLAH’S “SPIRITIUAL” SHEIK FADLALLAH – GOOD RIDDANCE

July 24, 2010

ISLAMIC-TERRORIST HEZBULLAH’S “SPIRITIUAL” SHEIK FADLALLAH – GOOD RIDDANCE

Fadlallah – When mass suicide [homicide] bombing was invented.

The new dimension of international terrorism – Page 115
Stefan M. Aubrey – 2004 – 312 pages [p. 115-116]
A further extension of this philosophy can be found in the teachings of the Lebanese spiritual leader Shaykh Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah. While Fadlallah agreed that the teachings of the Koran provided for the use of force and jihad for defensive purposes, the contemporary situation of the Middle East creates a scenario that tends to breed violence.
[…] justification of violent action in the name of jihad also included the usually non-legitimate practices (according to Koranic law) of kidnapping, hijacking and assassination, justifying these actions as reactions to US presence and influence in the Muslim lands.

http://books.google.com/books?id=VJJG14mHbGAC&pg=PA116

International Terrorists – Page 130
Thomas Streissguth – 1993 – 160 pages
Religious leader Sheikh Mohammad Hassan Fadlallah, a follower of the Ayatollah Khomeini, helped to organize the Hezbollah in Lebanon. To attack the multinational forces, Hezbollah invented a terrible new weapon — the suicide truck bomb.

Encyclopedia of terrorism – Page 128
Harvey W. Kushner – 2003 – 523 pages
The New Jackals: Ramzi Yousef, Osama bin Laden, and the Future of Terrorism. Boston: Northeastern University Press, 1999. … In his impassioned speeches, Fadlallah has called for Lebanon to be organized as a theocratic Islamic state…

Fighting suicide bombing: a worldwide campaign for life – Page 27
Israel W. Charny – 2007 – 283 pages
… Ayatollah Fadlallah, offered a justification for suicide bombing notwithstanding the fact that suicide is strictly prohibited by the Koran. In an important work on “political paranoia,” Robert Robins and Jerrold Post explain, “Fadlallah asserted that killing oneself as a means of killing an enemy ‘differs little from that of a soldier who fights and knows that in the end he will be killed.”

Fighting back: winning the war against terrorism
Neil C. Livingstone, Terrell E. Arnold – 1986 – 268 pages [p. 6]
… and Fadlallah himself reportedly not only helped plan the attacks but blessed the suicide bomber who drove the bomb-laden yellow Mercedes truck into the lobby of the marine barracks.

http://books.google.com/books?&id=1rrcAAAAIAAJ&q=Fadlallah

Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah dies at 74; Lebanon’s top cleric was … Jul 5, 2010 … Fadlallah is best known to Americans as the black-turbaned cleric accused of masterminding the bombing of a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut …

… Fadlallah had a long history of terrorism and extremism, … closely tied to Hezbollah when the terrorist group was carrying out kidnappings …Journalist Con Coughlin says that when he interviewed Fadlallah in 1985, one of his bodyguards checked his passport. Coughlin later found out that the bodyguard was a Hezbollah operative looking to see if he was an American that could be taken hostage…

Sheikh Fadlallah was the terrorist mastermind behind the Lebanon hostage crisisBy Con Coughlin World Last updated: July 5th, 2010Don’t be fooled by all the tributes that are pouring out following the death in Beirut at the weekend of Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, the so-called spiritual leader of the radical Shi’ite Muslim militia Hizbollah. The U.S. State Department’s classifaction of Fadlallah as a terrorist was spot on, and when you look back at his track record you can see he was right up there with other infamous terror masterminds, such as Abu Nidal and Carlos the Jackal.One of Fadlallah’s last acts before he died was to issue a fatwa authorising the use of suicide bomb attacks. The mystery here is why he waited so long. For as a founder member of Hizbollah – he sat on the organisation’s ruling council – Fadlallah gave his personal approval to the massive suicide truck bomb attacks that levelled the American Embassy and Marine compound in Beirut in 1983, killing more than 300 people, including the then CIA station chief. Fadlallah gave his personal blessing to the suicide bombers before they left for their deadly mission.Fadlallah also masterminded the hostage crisis in Lebanon in the mid-1980s. I remember interviewing him at his house in Beirut’s southern suburbs in 1985 at the height of Terry Waite’s mission to free the Americans then being held by Hizbollah on Iran’s orders (Fadlallah was a close friend of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran’s Islamic revolution.)
