Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Fathi Yakan, head of the Lebanese Islamic Action Front, which aired on Al-Manar TV on October 20, 2006.
Fathi Yakan: Tomorrow, Allah willing, the "true promise" will be fulfilled in Palestine, all of Palestine - not just in Jerusalem, not just in the 1967 territories, but on all Palestinian soil, the land of the frontline. Then, brothers, the greatest victory awaits us - the promise of the world to come. These promises will be followed by other promises, and then the greatest promise will be fulfilled, through the words of the Prophet Muhammad: "Judgment Day will only come when the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them." This is the promise of the world to come. Through the true promise in Lebanon and in Palestine, we proceed, Allah willing, to the final promise, when the state of Israel, this cancerous growth, will be eliminated, Allah willing.
Every day, the Israeli enemy opens a small window, and looks out at what happened in Lebanon, confirming that the resistance and Lebanon were victorious, and that defeat was the lot of Israel and this accursed Israeli people - this accursed nation, the offspring of apes and pigs. I say to you, brothers, with all honesty: I suggest that the Lebanese who feel [Israel won the war] should go see a doctor, because they may be afflicted with psychological or mental AIDS.
