The Narcissism of Hezbollah

From The Islamic Counterterrorism Institute
Jump to: navigation, search
No doubt, terrorist mullahs are liabilities to their communities!

Hezbollah is the international terrorist organization based in Lebanon but with operatives deployed throughout the world. This oppressive organization is a classic case of mass-narcissism. Hezbollah behaves collectively as a mega narcissistic entity (Arabic: الكيان النرجسي). Its individual members are also narcissistic. There should be no surprise about this diagnosis: Hezbollah (Arabic: "حزب الله") is a Quranic expression and classic Arabic for "those which are with God." In modern Arabic, the word "Hezb" (Arabic: حزب) has come to also mean "party" as in "political party." As such, in modern Arabic, Hezbollah also means "Party of God;" however, at the time of the revelation of the Qur'an to Prophet Muhammad, PBUH&HF, the concept of political parties was still non-existent among the Arabians. Indeed, the concept of organized political parties emerged among the nations of Europe during the Age of Enlightenment and then made its way to the Arab and Islamic Worlds as the major European powers colonized them. In 1982, the pro-Velayat-e Faqih founders of so-called Hezbollah chose (rather stole) the name of their party from the Holy Words of the Qur'an. Ever since, the ideologues and demagogues of Hezbollah have been marketing their party as the literal, true to fact, Party of God. They ignored the Islamic fact that "Hezbollah: those which are with God" is a term for all devout people, in all times, all places, and all universes, and shamelessly monopolized it and God for themselves. Is this narcissistic or is it!?

حزب ولاية الفقيه مصاب بالنرجسية وداء العظمة!

There are further flaws in the naming of this organization: Hypocrisy! Day and night, the demagogues of Hezbollah preach anti-Western hatred among its adherents, yet they chose a Western party political system for their organization. Indeed, the preferred title of master terrorist Hassan Nasrallah (Arabic: حسن نصرالله) is "his eminence the Secretary General" (Arabic: "سماحة الأمين العام"), a non-Islamic Western title.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

American Description

Diagnostic Criteria

A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

1. has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).

"حزب الله" يظن أن أتباعه "أشرف الناس!"

On Hezbollah: Its devastating and destructive wars with Israel and fellow Lebanese Muslims are "holy victories" (Arabic: "إنتصارات إلهيّة"); its members are "the purest people" (Arabic: "أطهر الناس"), "the most generous people" (Arabic: "أكرم الناس"), and "the most honorable people" (Arabic: "أشرف الناس"); its money is the "Clean Money" (Arabic: "المال النظيف") and the "Pure Money" (Arabic: "المال الطاهر").

"حزب الله" مصاب بعقدة نقص!

The photo above is an example of a very bizarre exaggeration of an accomplishment by a unfortunate Hezbollah militiaman: At the funeral of Bachir Ali Alawiyeh (Arabic: بشير علي علوية), who was killed during Hezbollah's futile war with Israel in 2006, the narcissistic organization made sure to have an over-enlarged copy of the master's degree certificate of the deceased young man carried ahead of his coffin! It seems that the organization suffers from an inherent inferiority complex (Arabic: عقدة نقص) manifested by its ill desire to show-off and tell the world that its terrorists do indeed pursue higher education! This whole behavior contradicts the traditional Islamic doctrine, which teaches that man takes nothing with him to his grave except his deeds and misdeeds. Nevertheless, the shameless propagandists of Hezbollah cannot resist the urge to use the tragic death of one its misguided young members to gain public relations and propaganda points. We cannot help it but ask ourselves: "Is the unfortunate Bachir taking his gigantic certificate with him to his grave? Having died, does the misguided Bachir even think about his master's degree?" Obviously he does not, but the grotesque propagandists of Hezbollah very much do...

2. is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

"حزب الله" يظن أن حروبه المدمرة "إنتصارات إلهية!"

On Hezbollah: Indeed, it considers its limited military achievements as mega holy successes and fails to see the cost and long term consequences of its destructive actions. It surely believes that every one should love and appreciate it even when they are suffering from its mass bullying, oppression, and persecution.

3. believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).

"حزب الله" يظن أن منظمته مذكورة في القرءان!

On Hezbollah: Same as number 1. Indeed, in its thinking, only the very few have enough foresight to understand it, for it is "selfless" and holy and does what it does for the sake of God — not to gain more power and wealth and violently impose itself on others. Indeed, Hezbollah indoctrinates its misguided members to believe that their terror organization was revealed by God in the Holy Qur'an, hence they are literally members of God's political party! Ridiculous yet unbelievable!!

4. requires excessive admiration.

It's Samir Quntar & the Motto Is Always:
Every Night is Halloween
And Every Land is Terroristan!

In ancient times, the face of Helen of Troy is said to have launched 1,000 ships. In 2006, the face of Samir Quntar (Arabic: سمير القنطار) launched more than 4,000 Hezbollah rockets, 12,000 Israeli air combat missions, 2,500 Israeli navy shells, and over 100,000 Israeli army artillery shells. Quntar, a Lebanese Druze (Arabic: درزي), was imprisoned in Israel for killing Jewish civilians, including a four-year old girl, there in 1979. He was a member of the Palestine Liberation Front (PLF) — not Hezbollah. In fact, he raided the Jewish State three years prior to the unfortunate establishment of Hezbollah. The 2006 devastating conflict, which was ignited by Hezbollah under the pretext of "liberating" Quntar, caused the death of thousands of Lebanese and hundreds of Israelis. In 2008, seeking to deny Hezbollah further "legitimate" excuses for attacking it, Israel eventually released the Quntar to Hezbollah, which as usual made a mega propaganda show out of the pathetic event.

"حزب الله" يتطلّب إعجاب الشارعين الإسلامي والعربي!

On Hezbollah: Even as it caused the devastation of much of Lebanon by provoking Israel in the summer of 2006, Hezbollah insists that its destructive war is a "Holy Victory" and its goal to free Samir Quntar, a hostage-taker and killer of civilians and children, is a "True Promise" (Arabic: "الوعد الصادق"). Yet, when Israel chose to release Quntar in 2008, the heads of the Lebanese state had to succumb to the proudly violent Hezbollah and give a hero's welcome to Quntar at the Rafic Hariri International Airport. Indeed, had Lebanon's leaders failed to offer special greetings to Quntar, Hezbollah would have labeled them as "traitors" and "Zionist Agents."

5. has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.

"حزب الله" يظن أن "النصر مطبوع على جبينه!"

On Hezbollah: Same as above. While all other Lebanese must disarm, Hezbollah maintains its own independent standing army; Hezbollah monopolizes Lebanon's choices of war and peace and the fate of the country; Hezbollah can and does bypass the Lebanese state and militarily attacks Lebanon's other pro-independence communities; Hezbollah can and does maintain its own state within the Lebanese state! Indeed, according to master terrorist Hassan Nasrallah, "Hezbollah was born with 'victory' stamped on its forehead!"

6. is inter-personally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.

"حزب الله" يخدع الهمج ويستغل الرعاع!

On Hezbollah: A classic example is its taking advantage of Michele Aoun (Arabic: ميشال عون), the power-hungry discredited 'Maronite' leader, to gain legitimacy for its wars and projects among some of Lebanon's Christians. Aoun ran in the 2005 Lebanese parliamentary elections on a pro-independence anti-Syrian hegemony platform only to turn his back on his promises and sell the country wholesale to the oppressive Velayat-e Faqih Regime of Iran in exchange for "Clean Money" and the support of Hezbollah against his more popular Christian rivals.

General Michele Aoun:
Bewitched by Nasrallah and his "Clean Money"

General Aoun deceived his very own people and betrayed all of Lebanon. He sold the independence and freedom of his country to the rogue Velayat-e Faqih Regime of Iran for "A Fistful of Khomeinis[k 1]."[k 2]

The Obverse of the "One Khomeini" Bill
Take a very good look! This is the "Clean Money" of the Velayat-e Faqih Regime!

Notes on the 10K Khomeini bill:

  1. The official currency of Iran is the Rial (Farsi: ريال). The Iraqis living in Iran refer to the 10,000 Rial bill as a "Khomeini" because the picture of the Departed Imam (i.e., Khomeini) is imprinted on its obverse. 10,000 Iranian Rials are equal to roughly one U.S. dollar. Yes, the Iraqis got it right: Khomeini is worth one dollar. As for Aoun, since he is an Arab too (a Levantine Arab for this matter), it is only natural that he too will refer to the Rial as a "Khomeini!"
  2. This expression is inspired by the famous Italian Spaghetti Western movie "A Fistful of Dollars," which is the first of a trilogy known as the "Man With No Name" and starring Clint Eastwood.

7. lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.

"حزب الله" عديم الإحساس!

The "Lions of Dahieh" terrorizing the natives of Beirut!

On Hezbollah: To it, the choices of the other Lebanese are irrelevant, even when they constitute a legal majority. What matters are the wishes of Vali e Faqih, Ali Khamenei, in Tehran, Iran. When others oppose Hezbollah, the military option is always present: The brave "Lions of Dahieh" can be unleashed on them to humiliate and kill their youths, destroy their homes, and steal their properties.

8. is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.

"حزب الله" حاسد يظن أنه محسود!!

On Hezbollah: It labels every one who opposes it is as a "traitor." Every one who disagrees with it is an "agent of the West," and "agent of Zionism," and an "American agent." Hezbollah militarily subdues the pro-independence Lebanese communities to "protect its back" and "protect its soft-hip." Over the years, Hezbollah has clashed with every sectarian and political community in Lebanon. Indeed, Hezbollah has mercilessly fought even fellow Lebanese Shiites. Throughout the 1980's, Hezbollah has repeatedly clashed with its Shiite rival, the Amal movement, in an effort to achieve supremacy and control over over the Shia sect in Lebanon. Hezbollah has eventually absorbed and contained Amal and the other Shia forces. The consequences have been grave: Today, the fate of Lebanon's unfortunate Shiite community, and by extension the whole country, is controlled by the rogue Velayat-e Faqih Regime of Iran and, to a lesser extent, the oppressive Syrian Alawite Baathist regime. Hezbollah violent and aggressive drive to crush and subdue all its political competitors is envy at its height!

9. shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.

"حزب الله" مصاب بمرض الغرور!

On Hezbollah: What is more arrogant than calling itself the "party of God"? What is more arrogant than stealing its name from the Holy Verses of the Qur'an? What is more arrogant than violently imposing itself on the other Lebanese communities? What is more arrogant than labeling its opposition "traitors" when it has in fact sold Lebanon to the alien, rogue, and troublesome, Velayat-e Faqih Regime of Iran? What is more arrogant than calling its misguided followers "the purest people".

Do these symptoms of narcissism sound like Hezbollah or do they?!

حزب ولاية الفقيه نفسه إبليسية سقيمة وأمته العليلة:

حزب الشيطان!


Vulnerability in self-esteem makes individuals with this disorder very sensitive to criticism or defeat. Although they may not show it outwardly, criticism may haunt these individuals and may leave them feeling humiliated, degraded, hollow, and empty. They may react with disdain, rage, or defiant counterattack. Their social life is often impaired due to problems derived from entitlement, the need for admiration, and the relative disregard for the sensitivities of others. Though their excessive ambition and confidence may lead to high achievement; performance may be disrupted due to intolerance of criticism or defeat. Sometimes vocational functioning can be very low, reflecting an unwillingness to take a risk in competitive or other situations in which defeat is possible. Individuals with this disorder have special difficulties adjusting to growing old and losing their former 'superiority'.

Differential Diagnosis

Histrionic Personality Disorder; Antisocial Personality Disorder; Borderline Personality Disorder; Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder; Schizotypal Personality Disorder; Paranoid Personality Disorder; Manic Episodes; Hypomanic Episodes; Personality Change Due to a General Medical Condition; symptoms that may develop in association with chronic substance use.
