Ali Hamiyeh, a Lebanese boy who is learning Hebrew, appeared on a show on OTV (Lebanon) on December 25, 2018, and he explained that he is studying the language of his enemies in order to understand how they think. He said in Hebrew: "We are the golden triangle – the army, the people, and the resistance. With the help of God, we will win, because Israel is weaker than a spider's web." He also warned Israel that the resistance in Lebanon has thousands of precision missiles that can strike "Netanyahu Eichmann" and "Avichay [Adraee] Heydrich", who is the IDF's Arabic-language spokesman. He added: "They brought us Avichay [Adraee], and we will bring them 1,000 children who can speak Hebrew just like that chick Avichay."
Following are excerpts:
Rosanna Rammal: You are one of very few children who learn Hebrew. Why?
Ali Hamiyeh: I want to know my enemy. How can I understand the enemy and talk to him if there is a war? How can I understand his way of thinking? That’s why.
Rosanna Rammal: You’d like to know what your enemy thinks about you?
Ali Hamiyeh: Yes.
Rosanna Rammal: You are still young. Why do you think you should know what your enemy thinks?
Ali Hamiyeh: Because when I grow up, my head will be like a sponge, and I won’t be able to learn anything.
Rosanna Rammal: What would you say to the Israelis?
Ali Hamiyeh: I’ll tell them that they should listen well and understand well. [in Hebrew:] We are the golden triangle – the army, the people, and the resistance. With the help of God, we will win, because Israel is weaker than a spider’s web.
I warn them not to start a war with us, because we have thousands of precision missiles, which can reach Avichay Heydrich and Netanyahu Eichmann.
They brought us Avichay [Adraee, IDF Arabic Spokesman], and we will bring them 1,000 children who can speak Hebrew just like that chick Avichay.
