Like Obama Before Him, Trump Is Now Bathing In The Blood Of The Zakzaky Family

by Jonathan Azaziah

Obama was smooth. A soothsayer on steroids. The sonnets of demagoguery that he spewed had large swathes of “the left” — including the so-called “radical” left — in an epizootic stupor. I say epizootic because Barack, or better still, BARUCH had liberals and their allies running around like animals with a brain malfunction. Well, a specific animal actually: The lemming. And off the cliff “the left” has gone and continues to go for Obama. Thankfully however, in the waning years of this deceiver’s reign as World Zionism’s Goy Golem, the voices of the underground began to make it to the surface and expose both the Obama-led and Obama-backed crimes. The devastation of Libya. The destabilization of Syria. The unleashing of (Mossad)Daesh on Iraq. The ‘Israeli’ massacres in Gaza. Saudi Arabia’s genocide in Yemen. The push to overthrow Bolivarianism across Latin America. The spying. The deportations. The psychotic militarization of the blue bacon (police). The crackdown on journalists and whistleblowers. But there is still one crime that never really made it out in the open although its barbarity is immense, multi-pronged and ongoing: The eliminationist scheme against Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky and his Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN).

Now 930 Days After The Zaria Massacre and Sheikh Zakzaky’s Illegal Imprisonment, Why Is The Silence Of “The Ummah” Still So Deafening?

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to everyone but most of all to our steadfast and unbreakable Nigerian brethren who to this very moment continue to fight for the freedom of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky. It has now been 930 days–read that again and after you shake your head in disgust, read it one more time–since the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and perhaps the greatest Islamic revolutionary to grace the African continent in history was locked up by the utterly atrocious, completely servile, downright pathetic regime clinging to power in Abuja. 930 days. The Sheikh’s imprisonment immediately followed the unspeakable Zaria Massacre which lasted 72 hours. December 12th to December 14th. Almost 1,000 Nigerian Shi’a slaughtered, countless others disappeared and on top of Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat being throw into a dungeon, hundreds of IMN activists were tossed in with them. Their fates remain unknown. Since being unjustly put behind bars, the Sheikh has lost vision in one eye, had a stroke–as confirmed by his iron-souled daughter Suhaila–and has been denied proper medical care by the brutal, collaborationist, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed tyrant Muhammadu Buhari. Sure as hell seems to fit all the criteria that “The Ummah” needs to make some noise, right?

Happy 67th Birthday To Martyred Burkinabé Revolutionary Thomas Sankara, You Are Missed Today More Than Ever Before

by Jonathan Azaziah

Happy, happy birthday to Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara, the revolutionary godfather of Burkina Faso. Africa’s Che Guevara would’ve been 67 today and there is a deep sense of melancholy knowing that he was martyred at the tender age of 36. One of the world’s least known but nevertheless most historically important revolutionaries, Sankara came to power in 1983 after spearheading a masterful Anti-Imperialist coup. From the moment he took the reins, he began to implement radical changes that affected countless lives for the better in a nation ravaged by decades of French colonialism. From anti-capitalist land reform to the immediate implementation of total women’s rights, Cuban-style literacy promotion to education, a declaration of war on famine to resource nationalization, the removal of colonialist structures to national, public, free health care, rejection of neoliberalism to the punishment of collaborators and colonialists, Pan-Africanism to staunch Anti-Zionism, the incorruptible Burkinabé firebrand was like a shooting star in the solidification of all these policies. Never before in the post-colonial era on the African continent had such revolutionary shifts occurred in such a short period of time.

Striking Star Salute To Fidel Castro: A Skying Revolutionary Life Comes To A Close At 90

by Jonathan Azaziah

I was only 10 years old when my Bedstuy, Brooklyn neighborhood was lit ablaze by the classic joint “Victory” and I heard legend Biggie Smalls spit the following bars: “… Used to call me fatso/Now you call me Castro/My rap flow’s, militant…” I remember asking all the old heads on my block who “Castro” was, thinking he was some Nostrand Avenue OG so fearsome and slick that he was never caught by “the authorities”. And to my surprise, when a gentleman put me on game–a Cuban brother who was down with the 1959 Revolution and wanted to go home but ended up getting pinched for gun-running–that’s actually ***EXACTLY*** who he was, albeit in an entirely different setting. This man who the Notorious B.I.G. name-dropped was indeed an OG, but a Cuban not a Brooklynite, and he was indeed as hardcore, slippery, fiery and brilliant as they come, but the “authorities” he defied weren’t Blue Bacon and Feds but the American regime, especially its CIA, the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity and the global Zio-Imperialist system at large. And from this moment forward, I, like y’all, and not millions or even tens of millions but HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of other Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) worldwide, was infatuated with, in awe of, and inspired by this sky-toppling giant known as Castro.

And It Gets More Heinous Still: Shi’a Massacred Again Today By The US-Saudi-Zionist-Backed Nigerian Army

by Jonathan Azaziah

Another bloody, heartbreaking massacre in Nigeria today. Over 100 Nigerian Shi’a of the IMN (Islamic Movement of Nigeria), including women and children, were savagely murdered and hundreds more were badly wounded when the Buhari regime’s army opened fire with tear gas and live ammo from three different directions on a peaceful procession as demonstrators were marching from Kano City to Zaria for Arbaeen, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein (A.S.) And it gets more heinous still. The criminal thugs of the Nigerian army also took a tactic right from the ‘Israelis’ who trained them, planting weapons on the unarmed Shi’a that they brutally killed and then reporting to mainstream media that there were “clashes”. But anyone who knows even the tiniest bit of information about the IMN knows that in its four decades of existence, it has never once carried even a single bullet, let alone stockpiles of weapons. It is entirely peaceful, just like the Islamic Revolution of Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) that the IMN is modeled after.

With The US Presidential Election Nearly Over, Never Forget What Zio-Killary Clinton Did To Libya

by Jonathan Azaziah

With the circus that is the US presidential election just about over, I look upon the hideous, lizard-like, psychopathy-filled face of Zio-Killary–a mug so ugly it makes the dying wish they were dead already and the living wish they were never born–and there are only six words that my brain seems to be able to process: “We came, we saw, he died.” This is what Secretary of State Succubus said after Muammar Qadhafi, the Pan-Africanist godfather of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, was bombed by NATO and ruthlessly tortured, raped and murdered by Takfiri Libyan rebels on the Zionist-NATO-Saudi-Emirati-Qatari alliance’s payroll.

Nine Months Since Zaria Massacre, We Ask: Where Are The 50 Nigerian Shi’a Women Abducted By Buhari’s Army?

by Jonathan Azaziah

Nine months! Nine months now! A brutal nine months have passed since the tyrannical Buhari regime carried out the inhuman Zaria Massacre and unjustly locked up Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, the saintly and knightly founder and leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), for no other “crime” than being a revolutionary incapable of holding his tongue on injustices committed against the Palestinian, Syrian, Iraqi, Yemeni and Bahraini peoples by the US-‘Israeli’ Empire, and still the deafening, atrocious, infuriating silence from so-called “Muslim Solidarity” activists and “human rights” organizations persists. In light of this horrific indifference, it is time we raise our voices about perhaps the darkest aspect of this atrocity–as if the wanton slaughter of hundreds (possibly thousands) of Nigerian Shi’a and the Zionist-style bulldozing of the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah weren’t dark enough–and shed beaming sunlight, moonlight and starlight upon its ugly head: The 50 young Nigerian Shi’a women abducted by Buhari’s cowardly, ‘Israeli’-trained, Saudi-funded, US-backed military. Where are these sisters and what the hell are the Nigerian regime’s goons doing to them?! We quiver at the mere thought. Continue reading Nine Months Since Zaria Massacre, We Ask: Where Are The 50 Nigerian Shi’a Women Abducted By Buhari’s Army?

“Ummah” Doesn’t Cry or Speak For Zakzaky ‘Cause Zakzaky Is Shi’a

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak. Please do keep Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, who remains unjustly imprisoned alongside his wife in a Nigerian regime dungeon, sincerely present in your prayers today, as well as all the families of the Zaria Martyrs whose hearts are still in shambles. “The Ummah” has not only forgotten them, but abandoned and betrayed them; the Saudi regime’s ever-corrupting money, fused with the heavy-handed brainwashing techniques of the US-‘Israeli’ Empire, has created the vilest of vile fitnah. Reflecting further on Zakzaky’s plight and the failure of the Muslim world as a whole to come to his aid, I am reminded of the Wahhabi-Salafi doctrine of fighting the “internal oppressor” or “immediate enemy”, prioritized by the likes of the “Muslim” Brotherhood, Hizb ut-Tahrir, CAIR, etc., before fighting the “external oppressor” or “enemy from afar”. One would think that the Islamic Movement of Nigeria’s bright-faced leader fits this description to the letter, for Zakzaky is one of the world’s premier ‘Ulama who has been monstrously persecuted by a secular tyrant for preaching Islam that is both anti-Imperialist and anti-Zionist in solidarity with the globe’s Moustazafeen. Muhammadu Buhari and Goodluck Jonathan before him are the very embodiment of “internal oppressors”. Continue reading “Ummah” Doesn’t Cry or Speak For Zakzaky ‘Cause Zakzaky Is Shi’a

Today We Celebrate 54 Years Of Algerian Liberation; Tomorrow We Will Celebrate For Palestine

by Jonathan Azaziah

LONG LIVE ALGERIA! Since the dawn of Rothschild-financed colonialism in the Arab-Islamic world, Algerian Independence undoubtedly stands alone as the greatest of all our victories. After 132 years of French colonial occupation, the Algerian Resistance prevailed on this day in 1962, securing a triumph that now stands as one of modern history’s most important moments. A million and a half martyrs were given in the glorious armed struggle against the arrogant French Imperialists from 1954-1962, and despite every subversive, corrosive, destructive trick employed by Paris, Ahmed Ben Bella and the FLN, backed by the revolutionary godfather of Arab Nationalism Gamal Abdel Nasser, stood their ground, WON, and solidified themselves as paragons of steadfastness and decolonization to be emulated until the end of time.

It is also imperative to note that it was not only France whom Algerians battled against but the ‘Israeli’ monsters as well. Since 1870, when a French Zionist-Freemasonic Jew named Adolphe Crémieux helped pass the Crémieux Decree that facilitated the settlement of over 35,000 French Jews on Algerian soil, French Jews played a prominent role in colonizing the North African giant. And when the liberation struggle kicked into full force, it was the French Jews’ other genocidal project, ‘Israel’, that they turned to for assistance to preserve their presence as hegemons in Algeria.

Nigeria: Four Zaria Massacre Martyrs “Human Rights Activists” Never Speak Of

by Jonathan Azaziah

DEATH TO THE BUHARI REGIME IN ABUJA. The depth of depravity that unfolded at Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky’s home in Zaria from December 12th-14th, 2015 will probably never be fully uncovered. Thousands of murdered and wounded, with the dead being buried under the rubble of the Sheikh’s house and the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah which were razed to the ground in the US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed Nigerian Armed Forces’ savage raid. The three beautiful young women and the absolutely adorable little girl pictured here are the niece (A’isha), 18-month old grandniece (Fatima-Batoula) and the two daughters (Nusayba and Fatima) of Malam Abou Bakr Zaki, Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky’s deputy in Gwagwalada. The heartbreak this man is experiencing, despite being a Khomeiniist-Husseini lover of martyrdom and Ahlul Bayt (A.S.), must be unfathomable–even Imam Zayn al-Abideen (A.S.) is said to have cried everyday for 20 years straight after what happened in Karbala on Ashoura–as all four of these angels plus A’isha’s husband Buhari Bello Jega were slaughtered in the Zaria Massacre by the monstrous, malicious, Zionized Nigerian army.
