NCRI - The Iranian regime-backed Lebanese terrorist cell Hezbollah denied on Tuesday a report from Iran’s Farda News Agency that their Secretary General, Hassan Nasrallah, had said that the guardianship of the Islamic jurist (Vilayat-e Faqih) was above the Lebanese constitution, and that Lebanon should implement its orders.

Vilayat-e Faqih is a theory in Shiite Islam that forms the basis of Iran's constitution. It states that Islam gives a custodianship over people, which is why Iran has a Supreme Leader as its head of state.

Farda News, which is affiliated with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, has apologised for the report and blamed the “mistake” on its correspondent.

Video Evidence

However, many Lebanese people have been sharing old videos of Nasrallah in which he can be seen stating that he wants Lebanon to become part of the “Greater Islamic Republic”.

Nasrallah has also repeatedly promised that Hezbollah will make sacrifices for the sake of the Iranian Regime and Khamenei, whilst also confirming that Hezbollah is merely an extension of the Iranian Regime’s overall goal of dominating the Middle East.

Why would Hezbollah deny something that can be so easily proven?

According to a source familiar with the subject, Hezbollah (and possibly other terrorist proxies) are looking to distance themselves from the Iranian Regime because of the ongoing anti-regime protests in Iran.

The nationwide protests by the Iranian people may yet see the end of the Iranian Regime and even terrorist groups can see that.

Iran’s funding of Hezbollah

Nasrallah has even previously reported that Hezbollah’s money and arms come directly from the Iranian Regime, something backed up by an independent report from Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a Washington DC-based think tank, in January.

That report revealed that Hezbollah receives between $700 million and $800 million from Iran each year, up from $100 million per year in the 1990s and $200 million per year in the early 2000s.

This rose even more sharply in the period 2006-2009 when, due to high oil prices, Iran provided over $1 billion in direct aid in total. This did decrease by 40% in 2010, but only because Iran was suffering financial problems due to decline in oil prices and the introduction of international sanctions.

However, since the sanctions were lifted again in 2016, it is likely that Iran’s funding of Hezbollah and other terrorist groups will only increase, unless something is done to stop them.
