Ibrahim Mousawi 's info
CATEGORY: Journalists
DATE OF BIRTH: 1965-00-00
BIRTHPLACE: Baalbeck, Lebanon


Ibrahim Mousawi is a journalist and Hezbollah media relations officer. He was born in 1965 to a family from Baalbeck and grew up in the southern suburbs of Beirut. He has two BAs in Journalism and English literature from the Lebanese University and has worked as a head master at secondary schools. Mousawi is editor of the weekly Hezbollah newspaper al-Intiqad (Criticism) in Beirut. He has been quoted as a Hezbollah spokesman since at least 1998.

He joined the Hezbollah TV station Al Manar (the beacon), which practices partisan journalism and does not include Israeli officials in its broadcasts. According to Mousawi because "It [Israel] is an enemy state," and "why would you put spokesmen for an enemy state on the air?" He hosted a political talk show and worked as editor-in-chief of foreign news at Al Manar. 

Mousawi rose to prominence during the 2006 Lebanon War as a spokesman for Hezbollah. He said that "pain is the only language that the enemy understands". Following the cessation of hostilities, Mousawi was invited to speak to European audiences in Ireland, Germany and the UK, where he was announced as a Hezbollah spokesman on posters of the Stop the War Coalition. Mousawi received a PhD in Political Islam from Brimingham University in 2007. The title of his dissertation was "Compatibility between Islam and democracy; Shiism and democracy under Wilayat Al-Faqih, Iran as a case study". He coauthored an article on "Hizbullah's Jihad Concept" and lectures on political science at AUB.

In October 2007, Mousawi was refused entry to Ireland on security grounds following a recommendation from the Gardai and he is also barred from entering the United States because of his links with Hezbollah. The British Conservative Party tried to have Mousawi banned from Britain like Yusuf Al-Qardawai and Moshe Feiglin in February 2008, but failed. Mousawi's visit has been condemned by Leader David Cameron in the House of Commons and by shadow Defence Minister Baroness Neville-Jones, a former chairwoman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. In February 2009, Hezbollah publicly appointed Mousawi as its new media relations officer. When Mousawi was announced for a UK visit in March 2009, campaigners from the Centre for Social Cohesion pledged to seek an arrest warrant for him. He was banned from the UK in March 2009.
