Origins Of Hezbollah, Explained

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


 

 

Hello there guys. I've recently tried to start vlogging again and the first video in a series about Hezbollah's relationship with Iran is online. The video posted is a short overview. Here's a brief description:

 

 

Where does Lebanon's Hezbollah come from? What are the grievances that contributed to its establishment? A short introduction to how it all got started, in English.

 

In August of 1994, then-State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism Barbara Bodine referred to Hezbollah as an Iranian creation. Despite the political color of her statement and of those preceding and succeeding her, the theory that Hezbollah is a foreign-imposed construct in Lebanon has also remained afloat in more serious discussions and literature. 

 

This short introduction corrects that view, arguing that Hezbollah is an organic and natural evolution within Lebanon. An evolution that gradually took place within the Shiite community following the end of the Great War.

Here are three short reads on the Origins of Hezbullah:

 

Nicholas Blanford, a review from his book "Warriors ..." in Cairo Review of Global Affairs

"Profiles in Terror"  page 146

http://books.google.com/books?isbn=0742535258

 

"Terror, Insugency ..." page 159

http://books.google.com/books?isbn=0812239741

 

 

One point I found interesting is how the Hostage Crisis got started and why there were no recriminations.

Before Hezbollah, and after Shia were going into Left wing movements, we shouldn't discredit Imam Moussa Sadr and the establishment of Amal Movement, which many later left it and formed Hezbollah after Imam Sadr was kidnapped by Kaddafi. Sayed Nasrollah was in Amal Movement.
