During an August 14 Friday sermon delivered during a visit to Tehran, Deputy Secretary-General of Hizbullah Sheikh Naim Qassem stated that the organization has pledged allegiance to Imam Khomeini. Sheikh Qassem told the Iranian audience that "all the victories you are seeing in Lebanon and the region" stem from Hizbullah's commitment to the authority of the "Jurisprudent Ruler, Imam Khamenei."

Following are excerpts:

Naim Qassem: Hizbullah has believed in Islam, and pledged allegiance to Imam Khomeini... Through this great man and his pioneering erudition, Hizbullah has learned how to reach happiness in our lives, and how to reach a complete understanding of Islam.


Everything we have been blessed with, all the victories that you are seeing in Lebanon and in the region, and all the Islamic glory of which we are proud, stem from our commitment to follow the authority of the Jurisprudent Ruler, Imam Khamenei.
