Malcolm X (R.A.) Saved My Life And 52 Years After His Martyrdom, He Remains The Foundation For All Revolutionary Muslim Activists

by Jonathan Azaziah

Humanity died on this day 52 years ago, when Hajj Malik el-Shabazz (R.A.), better known to the world as Malcolm X, was gunned down in the Audubon Ballroom of Washington Heights. We are told by the Zionist-dominated mainstream media that the Nation of Islam killed him but we know better. Traitors within the NOI were indeed the triggermen but they weren’t the orchestrators. That distinction goes to the COINTELPRO tandem of the FBI and the Anti-Defamation League Of B’nai B’rith (ADL), which were both conducting heavy surveillance on Malcolm up until the day of his martyrdom and which both wanted the elimination of this giant at all costs because of his stances on Anti-Zionism, Anti-Imperialism and Black Independence.

Palestinian Activist-MC Mabous48’s 30-Track “Sum Power 4 Da Masses” Is A Hip-Hop Masterpiece

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

If you love Palestine and you love Hip-Hop, then what you need to do is go cop my dearest brother from another mother Ali Mabous’s new album “Sum Power 4 Da Masses”. Sometimes dark and sometimes beautiful, sometimes poetic and sometimes raw, but always, always, ALWAYS dope beyond measure, my beloved dun effortlessly delivers a 30-track masterpiece and his best work to date. The son of martyred Palestinian Resistance legend Muhammad Abbas (aka Abou Abbas) and an artist-activist of the utmost ability and passion, Mabous48’s story ***MUST*** be heard and should be cherished by anyone and everyone who considers himself (or herself) Mouqawamist-minded. I was (and am) so happy to be part of this gorgeous release, on the 21st joint, “Power Of Language (Language Is War),” and it is definitely one of the highlights of the record. My other personal favorites are “Power Trippin'”, “Tales of Power”, “Hip-Hop and I”, “Universal Movement”, “Mabous Da Masses” and “Pure Power” which features Hip-Hop legend Canibus. Mabous, habibi, you should be beyond proud of yourself for this project… It ain’t just your magnum opus but a gem and a half. From Iraq to Falasteen, Brooklyn to Montreal, Striking Star Salute and keep ’em coming!!

Million-Man Jummah March For Yemen’s Fallen: Al-Saud Cannot Defeat Ansarullah And The Yemeni Culture Of Martyrdom

by Jonathan Azaziah

Never lose track of the truth that steadfastness and faith, defiance and resistance are all interchangeable with the word “YEMENI”. Beginning at the crack of dawn yesterday for Jummah, the Yemeni Islamic Resistance and its supporters mobilized in their millions on the streets of Sanaa to offer their salutes to the moujahideen of Ansarullah who had fallen defending Yemen over the past week, as well as the many civilians who had lost their lives to US-UK-‘Israeli’-backed Saudi air strikes and siege. Yemen’s capital turned into a human sea of martyr portraits, Yemeni flags and banners of Ansarullah’s slogan–the best slogan there is. With bombs falling all around them, the first concern of the Yemeni Mouqawamah was to uphold the honor of its martyrs, a missive to the Wahhabi-Takfiri despots that no drop of blood that they spill is forgotten. You chilled up yet? I damn sure am. Continue reading Million-Man Jummah March For Yemen’s Fallen: Al-Saud Cannot Defeat Ansarullah And The Yemeni Culture Of Martyrdom

A Hip-Hop Hizbullah: Islamic Revolution International Center Interviews Jonathan Azaziah About Life, Music and Counter-Hegemony

Introduction (by Jonathan Azaziah): Jummah Mubarak! Been meaning to share this with y’all for a good while. Back in October, I had the honor and blessing of being interviewed by the Islamic Revolution International Center, a zine/think tank run by revolutionary Iranian students. We talked a little bit about where I came from and what drove me to become an MC; the origins of Islamophobia; Zionist control of the music industry; the fight to overthrow World Zionism’s system of hegemony; and the definition and aims of Mouqawamah Music. As a Khomeiniist, this meant a great deal to me and I pray all of you, my dear comrades, enjoy the read. I have to thank brother Abdullah Mohamadi for the beautiful opportunity and in these arduous times, I also want to once again extend all my love and solidarity to the resistant Islamic Republic of Iran and its most wonderful people.

***Just a quick note regarding the title: “Hip-Hop Hizbullah”, which I mention in the interview, is a lyric from my song “The Liberators“, featuring my beloved brother Khanverse KV, off my 2015 album “Son of Kufa Vol. 1: Rise Of The Anomaly”. With the subject matter at hand, I consider it most apt 😀 ***

Islamic Revolution International Center: Can you give us a brief bio of yourself?

Jonathan Azaziah: My name is Jonathan Azaziah–which is Arabic for “powerful light”–and am known on the mic as Madd Cold, a moniker I earned because of the harsh truths I would spit whilst rap-battling in the streets of Brooklyn (or Iraqlyn as I like to call it), New York City, where I was born and raised. I am 29 years old and am the son of an Iraqi father and a Moroccan-Russian mother. DTI (Death to ‘Israel’!) is my motto, “Ya Hussein (A.S.)!” is my battlecry, Mesopotamia is my soul, Palestine is my compass and Yemen is my heart! Don’t have anything else on my mind 24 hours a day except playing my part in the liberation of our people from the clutches of World Arrogance.

Today We Remember Sheikh Ragheb Harb and Sayyed Abbas Moussawi: Martyred Hizbullah Titans Who Paved The Way For Victories Over ‘Israel’

by Jonathan Azaziah

February 16th will forever live in sanctity and fury. For it is the day in which two of the most important and beloved figures in humanity’s struggle against World Zionism ascended to Jannah via martyrdom. You should know their blessed names but we will nevertheless speak them for posterity: Sheikh Ragheb Harb (R.A.), martyred in 1984, and Sayyed Abbas Moussawi (R.A.), martyred in 1992. Hizbullah commemorates their sacrifices and heroic lives every year (along with Hajj Imad Mughniyeh [R.A.]) at this time, in a ceremony known as Martyred Leaders’ Day, and what they represent for the Lebanese Islamic Resistance, its history, its foundation and its victories cannot be stated enough.

Western “Muslims” Screech Over Trump’s “Refugee Ban” But Still Say ZERO About Nigeria’s Sheikh Zakzaky 14 Months Into His Illegal Jailing

by Jonathan Azaziah

What a miserable world of hypocrites and cowards we live in, huh? It’s now been 14 months and 430 days to be exact that Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Africa’s torchbearer of the Palestinian cause and the foremost preacher of Islam on this lil’ thing we call Earth, has been wrongfully imprisoned by the corrupt and murderous regime of Muhammadu Buhari. Another statistic: It’s now been 74 days since the Nigerian Federal High Court in Abuja, the most important legal body in the nation’s capital, ruled that Sheikh Zakzaky MUST be released immediately. Do the math. The Sheikh’s release–and do note that he and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat NEVER, NEVER, NEVER should have been imprisoned to start with–is now 29 days overdue.

Now 9 Years Since His Assassination, Hizbullah Grand Martyr Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.) Still Strikes Fear Deep In The Blackened Hearts Of Zionists

by Jonathan Azaziah

Striking Star Salutes, salaams, bent knees, bowed heads, tilted fitteds, RIPs, raised fists and Al-Fatiha for Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.), assassinated by the usurping Zionist entity’s Mossad 9 years ago today in the Kfar Sousa area of Damascus. The architect of Hizbullah’s hybrid conventional-asymmetrical military doctrine and the most formidable moujahid of the last 100 years (and then some) hands down, left this world fighting the enemy he spent his whole life outmaneuvering, outthinking, outfighting and defeating at every turn. It may ***seem*** contradictory or incorrect even to make such a statement, considering it was indeed the Jewish supremacist tumor which murdered Mughniyeh in the “end”. But… Funny word, “end”, isn’t it? Because when we look at what Hajj Imad left behind in the wake of his martyrdom, it should be as evident to all as the night sky is black and the day sky is blue that the only thing ‘Israel’ killed on February 12th, 2008, and the only thing ‘Israel’ brought an “end” to, is the physical body of the larger-than-LIFE Hizbullah Commander.

Long Live Khomeini (R.A.), Long Live Wilayat al-Faqih: On The 38th Anniversary Of The Islamic Revolution, Iran Is Mightier Than Ever

by Jonathan Azaziah

On this blessed day 38 years ago, the ground opened up beneath the Empire of Zion and an integral piece of its satanic machinery fell through to hell. Muhammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran installed in a Mossad-CIA-MI6 coup in 1953, had been overthrown. For 26 years, the secular extremist Shah ran the Iranian state savagely and tyrannically, with an iron fist and iron boots, choking and stomping upon any and every dissident who opposed his despotic rule, no matter their religious, political or ethnic background. His murderous intelligence apparatus, SAVAK, created with the help of Mossad, the CIA and MI6, killed tens of thousands of Iranians during his reign as “Persian ‘God’-Emperor”, disappeared tens of thousands of others and tortured too many more to even fathom, let alone count.

Now 38 Years On, Iran And Its Islamic Revolution Kowtow To No One! Not Obama, Not Trump!

by Jonathan Azaziah

NOW 38 YEARS ON, THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION KOWTOWS TO NO ONE!

Donald Trump’s incessant barking against Iran has put him on the map as something equivalent to a whiny, rabid and diseased dog. And all around President Supercilious Orange are chicken-hawks itching to see the collapse of the Islamic Republic. Yes. A dog and some chicken-hawks. But in Iran, MIGHTY Iran, there were tens of millions of lions and lionesses on the streets today across 1,000 Iranian cities to commemorate 38 years of defiance; 38 years of independence; 38 years of RESISTANCE AGAINST THE GREAT SATAN. And what is the name of the group that these big cats travel in? PRIDE. The Iranian people have immovable, magnificent PRIDE in their Islamic Revolution and there is no threat from the American regime, whether the figurehead of Empire Judaica’s name is Trump or Obama, Bush Jr. or Clinton, Bush Sr. or Reagan or Carter, that will alter their identity which was forged with blood, martyrdom and the screams of “Ya Hussein (A.S.)!” Officials in the Trump regime, especially the war criminal trifecta of Mattis, Kelly and Flynn, along with MEK shills like Chao and Giuliani, and the murderous, Jewish supremacist sanctions czar Adam Szubin, actually thought the new economic terrorism imposed on Iran, which includes bans on medicines and medical equipment, would get the Iranian people to “fall in line”. Guess again, Zio-Imperialist scum! Continue reading Now 38 Years On, Iran And Its Islamic Revolution Kowtow To No One! Not Obama, Not Trump!

Syrian Women’s Sports Team In Mhardeh, Hama Fights Takfiri Barbarism By Continuing To Play And Continuing To Live

by Jonathan Azaziah

If you asked Syrians 6 years ago if they thought that playing sports would one day be considered an act of resistance key to overthrowing a Zionist project targeting our region, they would’ve laughed in your face. Hysterically. But, as odd and upsetting as it may sound, that is exactly the case at this current time. Say salaam to the Women’s Sports Team of Mhardeh in the Hama countryside. By doing what they do–playing volleyball, basketball and handball–and taking such photos, these courageous women are taking their lives in their hands. Why, you inquire? Why would gorgeous and gifted athletes like these have their very existence put at risk by virtue of their profession? Because their beautiful, picturesque Orontes River town is currently being besieged by Takfiri terrorist gangs, among them a particularly vile FSA brigade known as Jaysh al-Izza, which has received money, training and anti-tank missiles from the US ZOG. The residents of Mhardeh are predominantly Christian and have lived side by side with their Muslim neighbors in communal harmony for hundreds of years. Zio-NATO’s mercenaries want to destroy the town, burn the churches, convert the mosques into Wahhabi bases and wipe out all aspects of the Syrian way of life–ESPECIALLY women’s sports and everything else pertaining to the equal status that women have in the Syrian Arab Republic.
