Sample text

Undoubtedly, the party is not oblivious to the invidiousness that comes with being in power under dire economic straits, or to the luxury of being out of power in such circumstances. In the final analysis, the extent of Hizbu’llah’s political accommodation with Lebanese governments has as much to do with political considerations as with ideological ones, related to the peace process. This juxtaposition of the ideological and the political has Political Accommodation and Violence in Non-Islamic States 33 enabled the party’s opposition to the Hariri regime, and its semisupport for the Hus administration, to assume a politically constructive form and a politically mature content – the requisites for any party’s institutional longevity.

Since the Wilayat al-Faqih concept is also the foundation of the Islamic state, it follows that those who do not respect this principle would be politically marginalised. Moreover, just as the Islamic party cannot withstand ideological differences, the Islamic state cannot encompass more than one ideological orientation or it too would defeat the whole purpose of its existence. Accordingly, parties and individuals would have to be distinguished from one another purely on the basis of political flexibility and realism.

131 As it turned out, the economic legacy left by Hariri’s overambitious reconstruction project had left the new government with little room to manoeuvre and therefore prevented it from implementing many of its development schemes. The party claimed that, even it had been afforded the opportunity to join such a government, it would have declined from doing so. 132 The upshot of all this is that Hizbu’llah’s participation in any future government is not only governed by developments in the peace process, and the consequent likelihood of the conclusion of a Lebanese-Israeli peace accord, but is also contingent upon the state of the economy.
