Abstract

Abstract:

Using Hizbullah as a case study, this article acknowledges how different types of anashid fill a central function in Islamist organizations, not simply to stir up support for jihad. Dividing anashid into mainstream Islamist and jihadi genres and based on fieldwork observations of political events put on by Hizbullah, this article argues that anashid play a significant role in transmuting the group's shared goals and ideology. The core argument is that both types of anashid constitute a vital part in fostering a Hizbullah movement identity that underpins the group's political ambitions and mobilizes its supporters to action.
