Ibrahim Mousawi, foreign news editor of the Hezbollah TV station, al-Manar TV, will talk on "War, Islam & Resistance". Mr. Mousawi is on a speaking tour of Ireland, as a guest of the Irish Anti War Movement.

Monday 30th October 2006

For 33 days this summer, the Israeli military laid siege on the people of Lebanon. Using the deadliest of modern weaponry, including bunker busters manufactured by Raytheon, Israel was confident it could win a swift decisive victory.

But the long-planned attack aimed at destroying Hizbollah ended in humiliation for Israel. A small band of irregulars kept at bay one of the world's most powerful armies for more than a month. For the first time ever, the Israel Defence Forces were unable to prevail.

This outcome was not only a shock to the Israeli military. It was also a devastating blow to George Bush and his junior partner Tony Blair in their attempt to rescue US global hegemony from the debacle in Iraq .

"The meeting at Sandino's on Wednesday will give opponents of the war an opportunity to discuss one of the major turning points in the conflict---the defeat of US/Israeli forces in Lebanon.

Ibrahim's speaking tour also provides an opportunity for anti war supporters to hear more about the real nature of Hezbollah and how its resistance forced the Israeli defeat.

All are welcome to come along and join in the discussion, irrespective of their political views.
