In summary, Mohammad Hussein Fadallah was too moderate, progressive and too effective a spokesman advocating for the deprived to be tolerated by the US administration and Israel. Both required more stereotypical radical Muslim clerics to smear the region. The Mossad isbelieved to have targeted him more than half a dozen times including during the July 2006 Israeli attack.
In Lebanon and in Washington, the CIA is widely thought to have been behind the 1985 bombing outside his home and American author Bob Woodward wrote in his book, "Veil: The Secret War of the CIA," that the late CIA director William Casey ordered Lebanese agents to plant the car bomb in frustration and retaliation for unsolved attacks on U.S. interests in the Middle East. Fadlallah escaped death but 80 civilians outside his Mosque did not and more than 200 were injured.
Fadallah's role as a mentor for resistors to Israeli aggressions and his complicated relations with Hezbollah, including false US allegations that he was the "spiritual guide of Hezbollah" is treated in some detail in Chapter IV of a volume entitled: "Hezbollah: Inside-Out", to be finalized and released following the achievement of Palestinian Civil Rights in Lebanon.
A generation was inspired by Sayeed Fadallah and listened to him and studied his voluminous writings. Two generations feel the emptiness of his passing away.
Some of his thoughts and commentary:
On the US dominated UN Security Council: "But we observe that the
international community in the United Nations does not speak about Israel's
gradual annihilation of the Palestinian people or the missile holocaust that
targets them daily with US weapons that give Zionists the capabilities to kill
these people, destroy their infrastructure, and brand those who demand freedom
and removal of the occupation from their land with the charge of terrorism. It
is as if people's freedom is a terrorist demand".
"The massacres of Qana, Sabra and Shatila, and Jenin and Gaza have passed without the international community pausing for a moment to condemn Israel, which is now commemorating the holocaust by wreaking vengeance on the peoples of the region. We ask in our talks with the European Union: If Jews were subjected to this holocaust at your hands, why do we have to pay the price when the Arab and Islamic world had harbored Jews in its countries and offered them security and economic privileges as well as religious freedoms? Jews have lived among us in full freedom and dignity because Islam teaches us to respect religious minorities." 11/5/2005
