Buhari Just Can’t Stop Slaughtering Nigerian Shi’a: New Massacre Brings Arbaeen Martyr Count To 42

by Jonathan Azaziah

Death to the Buhari regime. And then another death to the Buhari regime. And one thousand… NO… TEN THOUSAND MORE deaths to the corrupt and criminal, traitorous and treacherous, venal and villainous, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed Buhari regime. Barely 24 hours after massacring nearly a dozen Nigerian Shi’a activists of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria as they marched for Arbaeen near Zuba in Abuja’s barrens, Shabbos Goy Buhari’s goons were at it again, this time slaughtering 32 more innocent souls as the march continued through Maraba, also on the capital’s outskirts. Martyr count for the Arbaeen Symbolic Trek now stands at 42 and it may get higher in the morning because many of the wounded are in critical condition.

Arbaeen Isn’t Merely A “Religious Gathering”, It’s A Revolutionary Affirmation Of Counter-Hegemony

by Jonathan Azaziah

With 30 million Husseinis converging on Iraq’s holy city of Karbala for Arbaeen 2018, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s sharp words about the event come to mind, “The march for Arbaeen is like a soft war that splits the enemy from the inside without firing a bullet.” The Imam of the Islamic Revolution couldn’t be more correct. Arbaeen isn’t merely a religious gathering–and the largest one in the world at that–which marks 40 days of mourning following the paradoxical tragedy and triumph of Ashoura. It’s a revolutionary affirmation of counter-hegemony, anti-terrorism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Parasitism, Anti-Imperialism, Anti-Takfirism and counter-hasbara. It’s an impregnable defense of Islam and a reminder to the various tentacles of World Arrogance that the lovers of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the defenders of the Pure Household (A.S.) that he’s the beating heart of shall not be kept from him. Not now. Not ever.

Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.): The Spring of Righteous Vengeance Who Brought Honor To Imam Hussein (A.S.) And Crushed His Killers

by Jonathan Azaziah

My uncle Ishaq-Hussein Azaziah (R.A.) told me many a time before ‘Israel’ gunned him down in cold blood that there are two Kufas: The one which betrayed Imam Hussein (A.S.) to the tyrannical terrorist Yazid (L.A.) in 61 A.H. and the one which avenged Imam Hussein (A.S.) in grandiose revolutionary fashion in 66-67 A.H. The latter was led by the hero of heroes and the blade of blades, Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.) And the reflection period between Ashoura and Arbaeen wouldn’t be complete without the remembrance of his unbridled and glorious rebellion, which not only saw an uprising against despotism in the name of the one, true, Muhammadi-Husseini Islam but also the pursuit of the psychopathic perpetrators of the massacre on Ashoura.

Imam Ali (A.S.), in Saying 324 of Nahjul Balagha, wrote, “Throw a stone in return from where one comes to you because [there are times that] evil can only be met with evil.” Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.) took this to heart and pursued the manglers and stranglers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) to the proverbial ends of the earth. The Commander of Commanders appointed Ibrahim al-Ashtar (R.A.), the son of Imam Ali’s (A.S.) right hand Malik al-Ashtar (R.A.), as his own vicegerent. A most fitting selection.

Amid Global “Muslim” Silence, Buhari Regime Slaughters Nigerian Shi’a Marching For Arbaeen And Sheikh Zakzaky

by Jonathan Azaziah

Muhammadu Buhari, the tyrant of Nigeria barely clinging to power thanks to a “democratic” veneer, just can’t stop persecuting the Nigerian Shi’a community led by Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s Islamic Movement of Nigeria. With just 48 hours before Arbaeen, in which tens of millions of Shi’a Muslims, Sunni Muslims, Sufi Muslims, Christians and many others flock from all around the world to Karbala to honor Imam Hussein (A.S.), the “democratic” despot’s trigger-happy, bloodthirsty, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed military opened fire on the imprisoned Sheikh’s partisans as they marched through Zuba on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital of Abuja in what they’re calling the “Arbaeen Symbolic Trek”–to show solidarity with their brethren in Iraq and of course call for the freedom of Sheikh Zakzaky. At least 10 innocents were martyred and scores more were wounded. The followers of Africa’s Khomeini have vowed to continue their quest for the next 72 hours, declaring that nothing, including the Buhari dictatorship’s bullets, will keep them from Sayyed al-Shouhada (A.S.)

ISIS Slaughters Dozens Of Iraqi Shi’a In A Busy Baghdad Market To Close Out 2016

by Jonathan Azaziah

Even on New Year’s Eve, Iraq has to tear at my heart strings… Because of course the Takfiri terrorist menace of ISIS had to carry out just one more massacre before 2016 came to a close. As Iraqis flocked to the busy Al-Sinak market in central Baghdad, gathering up food and gifts for year-end celebrations, two Daesh suicide bombers made their way into the huge crowds and then detonated their explosives-laden vests. At least 28 men, women and children, all Shi’a, were martyred and over 54 others were wounded in the blasts. Death toll, as usual, is expected to rise as city police and medics pull more bodies out of the rubble. There are so many, so, SO many, to direct our anger at: The killers themselves, for being so foolish to be tricked by the hateful, murderous, cultish doctrine of Wahhabism; the financiers of the killers in Riyadh, Doha and Kuwait City, for keeping the petro-cash flowing into terrorist coffers whilst claiming they stand against the very terror they fund; the masters of the killers in Washington, London and “Tel Aviv”, for keeping the P2OG and Gladio/B programs alive and well to keep Iraq in chaos; and the corrupt persons who should be preventing the killers from ever perpetrating such crimes, i.e. the Iraqi government, for failing time and time again to provide the people of the Iraqi capital with real security.

Dazzling: Russian Shi’a March 79 Days In Subzero Temperatures To Reach Karbala For Arbaeen

by Jonathan Azaziah

This is not only one of the most dazzling sights to behold in 2016 but one of the most dazzling sights one will EVER behold. Pictured here are Shi’a Muslims from Russia traveling to Iraq’s Karbala for Arbaeen, a spiritual event which marks the end of 40 days of mourning after Ashoura, the day in 680 A.D. (61 A.H.) when Imam Hussein (A.S.) was martyred at the hands of the maniacal, drunkard, murderous bandit-tyrant Yazid (L.A.) These inspiring souls travel for 79 days in subzero temperatures, braving snowstorms and icy winds ON FOOT. They march from Moscow and Saint Petersburg into Azerbaijan, where they are routinely harassed by the Azerbaijani authorities which are aligned with the US ZOG and the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity. They defy this Zio-Imperialist abuse and walk onward until they reach the Islamic Republic of Iran, where they are warmly received and given food and drink to replenish them after the arduous journey. And then of course, the next stop is Iraq, where they walk just a couple hundred more kilometers before finally reaching the holy sands of Karbala and completing their epic-beyond-epic pilgrimage.

Yemenis Celebrate Mawlid al-Nabawi In Their Millions, Upholding Muhammad’s (S.A.W.W.) Revolutionary Legacy

by Jonathan Azaziah

Is there anything or anyone in this universe more remarkable than the people of Yemen? In defiance of Saudi Arabia’s bombs, in defiance of AQAP-ISIS terrorism, in defiance of an American-‘Israeli’ plot to divide their land into statelets, Yemenis marched through the capital of Sanaa’s ancient streets in their MILLIONS for Mawlid al-Nabawi. Just as the steadfast souls of the nation once known as Saba refused to be kept from their rights and rose up in revolution to depose US-Zionist-Saudi puppet Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi; and just as these militant marvels refused to be kept from the path of resistance in their righteous confrontation with the tyrannical Wahhabi invaders; and just as these chivalrous champions rebuked the idea of being disconnected from Imam Hussein (A.S.) and showed up millions-deep for Ashoura and Arbaeen, Yemenis rejected the very notion that they would be prevented from celebrating the birth of the man who is the heart, soul and backbone of their religion and their fiery socio-political ideology: Our precious, beloved, noble, Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.)

Sheikh Zakzaky And His Wife Moved To Safety After Buhari Regime Tried To Assassinate Them

by Jonathan Azaziah

Everyone, please pray for Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat. Something that can only be described as frightening and disturbing took place yesterday evening, as social media screamed that there was an assassination plot afoot against the Sheikh. Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) members began posting on both Facebook and Twitter that DSS, Nigeria’s Department of State Security, an institution thoroughly infiltrated by CIA and Mossad, was preparing to deliver a lethal injection to both Zakzaky and his wife. Reading hashtags like “DontKillZakzaky” and “FreeZakzaky”, one could tell just how frantic the Sheikh’s loving and loyal partisans were (and assuredly, still are). After a flood of tweets were sent out, Iranian media followed up and confirmed there certainly was an attempt on the Sheikh’s life before subsequently reporting that Zakzaky and Sayyeda Zeenat were moved to an undisclosed facility inside the Nigerian capital of Abuja as a means of protecting them.

Saudi-Bought Kaduna State Governor Rejects Nigerian High Court Ruling, Calls For Zakzaky’s Prosecution

by Jonathan Azaziah

Goddamn the Buhari regime to the hellfire. As expected, and despite the ruling of the Federal High Court of Nigeria in Abuja which ruled that Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky is to be released immediately along with his wife and compensated with funds and a new home for his unlawful imprisonment, the Kaduna State government led by Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, an ally of Muhammadu Buhari, has ignored the decision and called for the Sheikh and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) to be prosecuted for “lawlessness” and, astonishingly, “allegiance to a foreign power”. It is not a coincidence that Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai is the same scoundrel who banned Shi’a Islam in Kaduna State, getting the sectarian ball rolling in five other Nigerian regions. It is also no coincidence that this blatant disregard for the law comes in the same week that the murderous, baby-killing, Takfirism-spreading Saudi Kingdom of Darkness sentenced 15 people, mostly Shi’a, to death on baseless charges of “spying for Iran”. Indeed, in states bankrolled by Riyadh’s petrodollars, “foreign power” is a code phrase exclusively reserved for the Islamic Republic of Iran. And make no mistake, this move by el-Rufai is not coming from his person, nor even Buhari, but the devilish Saudi tyrants who are seeking more bloodshed just days before the one-year anniversary of the Zaria Massacre.

Muslim Press Interviews Jonathan Azaziah About Arbaeen, Iraq And Islamic Unity

In an interview with Muslim Press, Muslim poet Jonathan Azaziah says, “This year’s Arbaeen march, as well as the marches of the previous two years, can be considered the largest peaceful protest against Daesh, Takfirism generally, Zionism and Imperialism on the face of the planet.”

Read the full text of the interview:

Muslim Press: Millions of Shia Muslims have defied ISIS terror attacks by visiting the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) in Arbaeen. How do you see this event?

Jonathan Azaziah: I see it in an ultra-straightforward manner: It’s the most beautiful thing in the world! You have more than 20 million human beings, mostly Shi’a Muslims of course, but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians of all stripes, Shabakis, Ezadis and even a handful of Hindus, traveling to the holy sands of Karbala to renew their commitment to the person of Imam Hussein (A.S.), the original revolutionary; the primordial defier of tyranny; the master of martyrs and the grandsire of resistance. Ever since Aba Abdallah (A.S.) achieved victory through his sacrifice on Youm al-Ashoura in 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), a divide has existed in the world that can accurately be described as the Husseini-Yazidi split. Those who stand with justice are the partisans of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and those who stand against what is right are the partisans of the degenerate despot Yazid (L.A.) Anyone who would attempt to harm the former–i.e. these beautiful people, these souls of remarkable spirituality who love Imam Hussein (A.S.) more than they love anything–are agents of evil. And of course, from the modern geopolitical perspective, this year’s Arbaeen march, as well as the marches of the previous two years, can be considered the largest peaceful protest against Daesh, Takfirism generally, Zionism and Imperialism on the face of the planet. Yet this dazzling event remains largely under the radar among Western audiences on the one hand due to extraordinarily limited (essentially nonexistent) media coverage and primarily unknown to Arab-Islamic audiences outside of the Shi’a school of thought on the other hand because of the slanted, shameful, sectarian “reportage” from the likes of brutal dictatorships Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
