You can say that again, Mr. Haydar. It is encouraging to see that this was published. From MEMRI:
In an article published February 1, 2007 in the English edition of the London daily Al-Hayat, columnist Hassan Haydar denounced the “culture of death” that Iran is spreading in the Arab world by means of the resistance movements in Lebanon and in Palestine.
The following are excerpts from the article, as they appeared in English:(1)
“According to a Reuters news report from Monday, a little Lebanese girl who appeared on a… children’s show on Al-Manar — Hezbollah’s TV channel — said that she had often prayed for her father to be martyred in battle with Israel, and that she was very proud that he was killed in the war last July, and that she was ‘very happy for him,’ because she felt that God had heard her prayers.
“The mother of the Palestinian suicide bomber who blew himself up in Eilat three days ago also told Agence France-Presse that she was happy her son was martyred. She revealed that she had said goodbye [to him] before he left for his mission and had wished him success, and that she was happy that ‘God had heard her prayers.’
“These two examples are no different from the Iranian ‘human waves,’ in which the victims wore keys to Paradise around their necks as they marched through Iraqi minefields. They are also no different from the majority of operations that have been carried out by the Lebanese and Palestinian Islamic resistance movements over the last two decades.”
“[The Culture of Death] Reflects a State of Collective Psychological Detachment, in Which a Child Can Celebrate the Loss of a Father and a Mother the Loss of a Son”
“Most important, such examples confirm the growing influence that Tehran has today, and the extent to which the culture of death and the glorification of martyrdom have proliferated in more than one Arab country. [Tehran spreads this culture by] exploiting its sectarian affiliation… with Shi’ites in Iraq and Lebanon, and [by means of its support of] the Palestinian Hamas and the Islamic Jihad movements.
