Muqtada Al-Sadr’s Traitorous Statement On President Assad Does Not Represent Iraq or Iraqis

by Jonathan Azaziah

As an Iraqi whose family comes from Kufa, and on behalf of all Iraqis who not only stand with Syria in word but also in deed and blood, I would like to sincerely and deeply apologize to all my Syrian brothers and sisters for the absolutely despicable new statement of Muqtada al-Sadr. What actually came out of his mouth is shocking… Simply shocking: “I think it would be fair for President Bashar al-Assad to offer his resignation and step down in love for Syria, to spare it the woes of war and terrorism and take a historic, heroic decision before it’s too late.” Not only is this asinine and traitorous, it is also patently false.

RIP Iraqi Moujahid Hussnayn al-Sa’adi: Nubl And Al-Zahra Will Never Forget Your Heroic Sacrifice

by Jonathan Azaziah

This is the story of martyred Iraqi moujahid Hussnayn al-Sa’adi of Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba, may he rest in power and in dignity and be appreciated by the Angels (A.S.) until the end of time. He was martyred in Syria on February 2nd, 2015 and it is a story that has never been told before up until now. The reason for writing it at this very moment in time is rather simplistic: We are in the midst of the first 10 days of the Muharram, that painful time when we relive the suffering of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, as well as reflect on how the sacrifices made on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.) affect us all today when thrown against the backdrop of the current geopolitical landscape. So what better time to recount the life of a Shahid as Husseini as Hussnayn al-Saadi than this one?! Born in Kufa and raised in Karbala, Hussnayn would begin his life as a moujahid at the tender age of 18 when the American-Zionist aggression was launched against Iraq. He joined the ranks of the Mahdi Army before heading towards Asa’ib Ahlul Haq and was known for his fiery demeanor, love of Palestine and passion for the Holy Qur’an, attributes which he put to good use on the battlefield, hyping up his fellow fighters in the confrontation against the invaders. Hussnayn would partake in liberating Basra from US-British occupation as well as several key battles in and around Baghdad.

From Deir Ezzor To Aleppo To Damascus, Pluralistic Syria’s Communities Fight Zio-Imperialism Together

by Jonathan Azaziah

One of the greatest lies of the entire conspiracy against the Syrian Arab Republic, if not the single most ubiquitous and oft-repeated lie of all, is that the Syrian Arab Army is a predominantly Alawi force and that it really operates more like a “sectarian militia” or a “gang of shabiha” than a national military. And whilst anyone who considers himself or herself pro-Syria has debunked this falsehood with such repetition that it has become a central talking point for putting sleeping lemmings through the class of “Understanding The Conspiracy Against Syria 101”, we nevertheless continue to say it over and over again that the SAA is not sectarian, nor is it minoritarian. The SAA is in fact mostly Sunni, as Syria itself is mostly Sunni, as well as multi-communal, with all types of Syrians from all walks of life comprising the lower and upper ranks of the righteous institution, as Syria is the most pluralistic country in our region. This truth shines particularly bright in the wake of the massacre that the American regime committed against Syrian soldiers in Deir Ezzor. There were Sunnis, Shi’a, Alawis, Druze and Christians among those martyred and wounded, and their origins can be traced back to every corner of Syria, from the smallest villages to the grandiose lights of the provincial capitals.

RIP To Sheikh Rafid Al-Gharebawi: An Iraqi Hero And True Son Of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

Pains me greatly to say that Sheikh Rafid al-Gharebawi, a native son of Karbala as well as one of Iraq’s fiercest lions and most knowledgeable young moujtahids, has been martyred. The bloodthirsty killers of MossadDaesh kidnapped Shahid Rafid with the hope of extracting intelligence on numerous groups within the Iraqi Popular Mobilization. But the Sheikh, despite the torture that would be inflicted upon him by these demented Wahhabi monsters, refused to break and maintained silence even though this spelled his end. ISIS, infuriated with its failure, shot him in the head and then dumped his body on the streets of Baghdad. The Takfiri bastards of Yazid (L.A.) failed to realize that they were dealing with a man who knew only the way of the beaming, burning light that is Ahlul Bayt (A.S.), and there was nothing, literally NOTHING in the world that they could do, no matter how depraved, which would force him to deviate from his principles. The terrorist children of Yazid (L.A.) failed to realize that they were in the presence of a man who knew no other path but that of Imam Hussein (A.S.), whose motto was “Death with dignity is better than life with humiliation”; and there is no greater dignity than defending one’s people until life ceases to reside in one’s body. His sanctified sacrifice bears witness to this. Continue reading RIP To Sheikh Rafid Al-Gharebawi: An Iraqi Hero And True Son Of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)
