Book Description:

Hizbullah is one of the prominent political parties in Lebanon, and Sheikh Naim Qassem its deputy leader. Qassem offers an insider's view of the workings of the party--from its inception as a resistance movement to its current governmental role. Backed by Syria and Iran, Hizbullah forced Israeli troops to withdraw from Lebanon in 2000 after a 22-year occupation and has used suicide bombings, which have contributed to it being classified as a terrorist organization worldwide. This Shi'ite party has now turned to the political arena, its long-term aim being to establish an Islamic state.

About the Author:

Naim Qassem was born in Lebanon in 1953. He holds degrees in chemistry and religious studies, and taught chemistry for many years at college level. A founding member of Hizbullah in 1982, and the party's Deputy Secretary-General since 1991, he is the author of numerous books on political and religious issues.

Book Description SAQI BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The resistance group Hizbullah ( Party of God ) formed in 1982 in response to Israel s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, and were instrumental in eventually forcing Israel to withdraw its troops altogether - thus ending a twenty-two-year-old military occupation. Many armed factions had sprung up in the face of Lebanon s descent into chaos, but few were as organised, disciplined, persistent and civic-minded as Hizbullah. In the 1990s, after many years functioning as both a guerrilla movement targeting the Israeli military on Lebanese soil and as a social-support provider to Lebanese victims of war, Hizbullah moved into mainstream parliamentary politics. Despite US condemnation of Hizbullah as a terrorist group , the party has never advocated attacking non-military targets, and was quick to condemn the events of September 11. Today they remain a force to be reckoned with on the Lebanese political scene. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780863565175
