The Lebanese-based Hizballah has been careful for years not to implicate Iran in its actions until now, Israel's Foreign Ministry said in a statement on its website. In an interview last week with the the Iranian television station al Qawthar, Hizballah Deputy Secretary-General Naim Kassem said Teheran gives prior approval for suicide bombings, terror attack and artillery barrages against Israeli civilians. "The religious doctrine which dictates Hizballah's actions in general and those relating to the jihad in particular, is based on the rulings of the spiritual leader in Tehran. The spiritual leader has the power to permit our actions, and the spiritual leader can forbid them," Kassem was quoted as saying. "In order to know what is permitted and forbidden regarding the jihad, we ask for and receive overall permission and only then do we carry out the operation. Even with regard to the suicide bombings, no one is allowed to kill himself without religious authorization. Even the rocket attacks on Israel, against the civilian population...in order to apply pressure, even this required overall religious authorization.""
