As related by the Commander of the Faithful Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS), if one falls
sleep in a stronghold, it does not necessarily mean that the enemies are
sleeping in their strongholds as well. This shows that one is being negligent
and should be awakened. We should be vigilant about the fact that our Cultural
Revolution is endangered. Our very national and Islamic culture has been
endangered by the enemies. I remember certain reports from the early stages of
the Imposed War which told us the enemies had made advances on particular areas,
and that they were bombarding certain other areas. These reports were constantly
repeated by hezbollahi forces in various revolutionary places.
The Commander of the Armed Forces at that time constantly denied the reports and
kept rejecting them as false reports. He said:" Who says Iraq is attacking us?"
A rumor had then been spread among people which said the city of Ein Khosh had
been occupied. That commander took part in a TV interview afterwards, during
which he said: "They say Ein Khosh has been occupied, yet I'm holding an
interview in the city!" The city was later occupied by the enemies some 3 or 4
hours after he had left! The enemies were in fact positioned outside the city,
but that did not mean that they were not present.
