The Concept of Islamic State in Political Ideology and Program of Hizbullah

Cover Page

Abstract


Hizbullah is an important actor both in the Lebanese politics and at the international arena of the Middle East. It evolved from a marginal military organization to a full-fledged political party. Since its inception Hizbullah employed the Ayatollah Khomeini’s concept of wilayat al-faqih and Islamic state as a cornerstone in its political ideology. From the early 1990s Hizbullah readjusted its policy by endeavoring to control the Lebanese politics through the gradual participation in political processes.
