In an era where people do not understand the religion, nor fathom the correct, authentic aqidah, and nor have an appreciation for the study of history, parties such as Hizbollah come along in this type of environment to play a dangerous role against the Islamic nation. Hence, it is upon Ahl al-Sunnah to know the dangers of this subversive group, " that the way of the criminals becomes evident" (6:55).

The Founder of Harakah Amal al-Shi'iyyah

The founder of the original parent group is Musa al-Sadr, an Iranian national, he was born in 1928 and reached Lebanon in 1958, he was given Lebanese nationality. And he is a student of al-Khomeini and also has close ties with al-Khomeini. The son of al-Khomeini, Ahmad is married to the neice of Musa al-Sadr, and the nephew of Musa al-Sadr, Murtaza al-Tabtaba'i is married to the granddaughter of al-Khomeini. Musa al-Sadr set up Harakah Amal al-Shi'iyyah as an armed group in the north of Lebanon and in Beirut and there was cooperation between it and the national forces. Al-Sadr also played the right-hand man for any Nusayri that entered Lebanon from Syria, and when the Nusayri Syrian army entered Lebanon, al-Sadr changed face from a Lebanese nationalist to a Nusayri Batini colonizer, and he took certain steps, from them a) ordering the officer Ibrahim Shahin to split from the Arab army and he set up a Lebanese army allied to Syria (the Nusayri Batinis), and in the south, the leader Ahmad al-Mu'aamiree also split and joined the Nusayri Batini army (that had come in from Syria, and b) he (al-Sadr) set up meetings with the Roman Orthodox and Roman Catholic bishops and other individuals and representatives. All of this was to help form a regional government that would be controlled by the Syrian Nusayris. These activities indicate the true loyalties of Musa al-Sadr, which is to the Shi'ites of Iran and the Syrian Nusayri Batinis (who themselves are an extreme sect of the Imaamiyyah Shi'ah - see here) against a general Sunni Arab population. In 1985 the Harakah Amal al-Shi'iyyah's forces besieged the Palestinian refugee camps in South Lebanon (and were aided by some Christian factions). This was supported by the Nusayri Baatinee leader of Syria, al-Assad, who did not want the presence of Palestinians in the south to invite any major invasion from Israel and also because he wanted the area to be dominated by the Shia. The battles became known as "the war of the camps" and the Shia committed great atrocities against the Palestinians in the camps. They killed old men, women and children in refugee camps, they also killed some Palestinians in the hospitals of Beirut, slitting their throats (reported in the Sunday Telegraph 27/5/1985), and their militias gathered tens of wounded into the camps and killed them, and witnesses also reported that they saw the militias of Harakah Amal kill more than forty-five wounded in the Gaza Hospital and its surrounding areas. These militia, after taking over the refugee camp of Sabra, went into the streets of Western Beirut on 2/6/1985 chanting, "Laa ilaaha illallaah, al-'Arab a'daa Allaah" (...the Arabs are the enemies of Allaah...). And Kuwaiti News (4/6/1985) and al-Watan (3/6/1985) both reported that the Militia of Harakah Amal kidnapped twenty-five Palestinian girls from around the camps of Sabra. All of the above indicates that the Harakah Amal al-Shi'iyyah major objective was to get rid of Palestinian Sunni presence in the region, and there was understanding and co-operation between the Jews and the Shia from years prior. Haydar al-Daayikh one of the leaders of Harakah al-Amal said, "We used to carry weapons in the face of Isael, but Israel open its arms to us and loved to aid us, Israel aided us in exterminating the Palestinian Wahhabi terrorist from the South (of Lebanon)" (Meeting with Haydar by Arab News Weekly, 24/3/1983). And Subhee al-Tufaylee in his meeeting with al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper (25th September 2003 / 29th Rajab 1424H) said that when the Israeli army entered Lebanon and destroyed the Palestinian factions (in the South) with participation of the Shia, the Shia of South Lebanon stood to receive the Zionist Israeli troops, and this is confirmed by Hasan Nasr Allaah as documented in the book Sajal al-Noor (p. 227) issued by Hizbollah itself.

What Are the Names of the Founding Members of Hizbollah in Lebanon

The Rafidi state of Iran set up the new movement, Hizbollah, through the agency of the following Shites: Muhammad Husayn Fadl Allaah (labelled "the Khomeini of Lebanon"), Subhee al-Tufaylee, Hasan Nasr Allah (labelled as "the Khomeini of the Arabs"), Ibraaheem al-Ameen, Abbaas Mawsawi, Na'eem Qaasim, Zuhayr Kanj, Muhammad Yazbik and Raaghib Harb. Both the Harakah Amal Shi'iyyah and Hizbollah take directions from Iran and are essentially proxies for Iran in the region. As for Hasan Abd al-Kareem Nasr Allaah, the "Khomeini of the Arabs", he was born in 1960CE. He travelled to al-Najaf, Iraq to study religious knowledge (i.e. the Imaamiyyah Shi'ah knowledge) He was made an official for Harakah Amal al-Shi'iyyah in 1982 but he later separated it to join Hizbollah (a child organization), and he was an official for it in Beirut in 1985, and he worked his way up until he became the general leader in 1992 after the assassination of the previous leader al-Mawsawi.

Openly-Declared and Hidden Goals

The openly-declared goals of the Hizbollah in Lebanon are that it is an organization opposed ot the Israeli occupation of Lebanon and that it wishes to liberate the sanctified place of Palestine (Bayt al-Maqdis), but this is simply a means of deceiving the Muslims, to blind them and divert them (the Muslims) away from their (the Shia's) real goals, and to make them (the Muslims) inclined towards them, and this they achieve through a policy of serving social and human needs in the society with support from Iran. As for the true and real hidden goals they are to spread Shi'ism in Lebanon, to maintain a permanent Shia presence and to take control over all elements of strength in the country (political, social, military, economical). And this is part of an overall agenda to prepare the region for the advancement of Iran and its religous and political objectives.
