Hezbollah's war with Israel and its intervention in Syria stem from a moral view inspired by the controversial Wilayat al-Faqih doctrine, the party's deputy leader Sheikh Naim Qassem argued Thursday during a signing of his book titled, "The Modernizing Wali".Justifying the party's intervention in Syria, Qassem said Hezbollah pre-emptively sensed the takfiri threat and was facing the danger in Syria in order to protect Lebanon and the resistance.These people, argued Qassem, must be provided with concise material that briefs them on the idea of Wilayat al-Faqih.
