Daddy is a martyr by Mohr, Daisy
HezbollahÂ’s social programs, which are staffed by welleducated employees, offer some of the best social welfare services in Lebanon and are the essence of HezbollahÂ’s power. Through these programs, Hezbollah in turn creates a sense of indebtedness among poor Shiite families; traditionally neglected by the state, they are now willing to sacrifice their men for the cause. This cycle of martyrdom is crucial to HezbollahÂ’s survival and future strategy.
The film shows how Hezbollah takes the Mouazzi family under its wing, offering spiritual counseling and social support. Hezbollah regards the children of martyrs as ideal future fighters. We witness how the Mouazzi children are socialized by Hezbollah and their community to love and respect the concept of Jihad. These private moments give unique insight into the lives of members of HezbollahÂ’s Shiite Muslim community. We see how the Party of God, which is considered a terrorist organization by many Western countries, encourages its supporters to become martyrs by glorifying the concept of Jihad and creating a sense of loyalty by providing social support.
