Hizbullāh: da movimento di resistenza a partito di resistenza

Busacchi, Melania (2012) Hizbullāh: da movimento di resistenza a partito di resistenza. [Doctoral Thesis]



Hizbullāh, the shiite muslim Party of God, was born in Lebanon in the early 1980s in response to the 1982 israeli invasion of Lebanon. The members of the Party of God were trained and organized by 1500 Iranian Revolution Guards, commonly known as the Pasdaran, to wage an guerrilla war against Israeli Forces. Hizbullāh’s founding principles were its militant resistance to foreign occupation and the establishment of an Islamic system in Lebanon based upon the ideology derived by ayatollāh Khomeinī in the Iranian Revolution: the wilāyat al-faqīh or “rule of the jurist”. From 1982 until the present, Hezbollāh’s most visible activity has been its resistance against the Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon, but in the 1990s (within the structure of the Ta’if Agreement) the Party of God has transformed itself from a radical and clandestine militia to a legitimate political party whit a resistance wing, playing an active part in the Lebanese political system. The Party of God has also a highly organized system of health, educational and social organizations that provide services to the impoverished people of Lebanon. The following pages will discuss a review of the Party of God, its political, social and ideological evolution.
