Of course Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was going to speak about Umm Imad, Hajjeh Amina Salameh (R.A.), who passed away at the age of 80 just a few days ago. Of course it was going to be profound. And of course we were going to be moved by it like houses are moved by tornadoes. This was a big loss–in terms of the emotional impact, not the strategic or operational impact on the Mouqawamah itself–and one that is very close to the Hizbullah Secretary-General’s blessed and pristine heart. Sayyed Abou Hadi revealed that the Matriarch of Mouqawamah (R.A.) was key in establishing several think tanks and foundations affiliated with the Resistance from its earliest days and said that her house was more like Hizbullah’s House, especially after Hajj Redwan’s (R.A.) martyrdom as well as during sensitive periods in intelligence battles with the enemy.
He praised her strength, her steadfastness and her faith, pointing out that anyone who came in contact with her was touched by her seemingly unlimited Nour, and also noted that she was a true moujahida, playing a key role in aiding the Mouqawamah’s psychological warfare operations. The Mother of Martyrs (R.A.) was always present in the homes of the Shouhada, Nasrallah went on, and she gave hope to families in their darkest hours, consoling them, guiding them and providing them with the wisdom they needed to fight on.

Hajjeh Amina Salameh (R.A.) Umm Imad Mughniyeh. The Matriarch of Mouqawamah. The Mother of Victories and Mother of Martyrs. From her womb, emerged an undefeated nation. Through her hands, the greatest moujahideen since the time of Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) were nurtured, raised and sculpted into the architects of triumph; the builders of buildings that rest on a foundation of eternal freedom. Through her words, a special soul, Hajj Redwan (R.A.), was inspired to be the champion Islam required and constructed the School of Fighting used by the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah to this day and hated by the enemies of humanity across the globe. It began with Hajjeh Amina. No woman in the whole of the Ummah apart from Sayyeda Zeenat Zakzaky has sacrificed more in the fight against Zio-Imperialism. Early yesterday, she was finally called home by ALLAH (SWT) to be with her sons and her grandson in a palace in the Akhira so awe-inspiring that very few in all of Islamic history, male or female, revolutionary or aesthetic, can claim a station as high. She was 80 years old.

As we are in the midst of both the 11-year anniversary of the 2006 July War in which Hizbullah prevailed over ‘Israel’, as well as the 18-month anniversary of the Zaria Massacre that led to Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s illegal jailing by the ‘Israeli’-aligned Nigerian regime, the timing could not be more apt to flashback to July 29th, 2015 for the International Union of Resistance Conference in Beirut’s Southern Suburbs– a summit to build unity and solidarity in the Islamic world as well as devise new strategies to confront and eliminate the usurping Zionist entity. Zakzaky, the ideological Nigerian son of Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Africa’s foremost Anti-Zionist personality and one of the most critical revolutionary minds to emerge from The Ummah in centuries, was one of the premier participants in the event.

One could write for days and for weeks, for months and for years about Hizbullah’s legendary triumph on this day 17 years ago. Lebanon was liberated from a 22-year Zionist occupation and for the first time in the history of the “Arab-‘Israeli’ conflict”, the usurping Jewish terrorists were not merely defeated but humiliated on such a grandiose scale after all the damage and casualties the Lebanese Islamic Resistance had inflicted on them, that they fled in the middle of the night like the cockroaches and rats they are. The Party killed the “Greater ‘Israel'” scheme dead in its tracks, inspired the Second Intifada in Occupied Palestine that ultimately led to the liberation of Gaza–which Hizbullah was hugely involved in–and gave hope to hundreds of millions of Muslims and Moustazafeen worldwide.

A bolt from the blue. That’s what it was. We all felt it. Piercing our hearts like the knife of a cardiothoracic surgeon. Only in this instance, there was no anesthetic to numb the excruciating pain. It just penetrated our beings, deep and merciless, and filled us with a sadness so sudden and so severe that even attempting to catch our breaths would feel like death. On this day, one year ago, Hajj Moustafa “Sayyed Zulfiqar” Badreddine (R.A.), the Hizbullah Commander who constructed the Lebanese Islamic Resistance’s hybrid warfare doctrine alongside Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.), was martyred by Zionist-backed Takfiri terrorists in the Syrian capital of Damascus. The legendary moujahid, who had guided the Mouqawamah to every major victory it had ever achieved since its very inception, was a personality of such stature and uniqueness that his likes will never be seen again. Not in this epoch or the next. Not ever. He wasn’t a mere revolutionary but who revolutionaries model themselves on. He wasn’t just a struggler but who struggles are waged for and named after. Sayyed Zulfiqar, an angel who temporarily took human form, inflicted countless defeats on the usurping Zionist entity during his time on Earth and his departure back to his heavenly home has a left a void in our souls. The enemies of Islam hoped that his martyrdom would leave a void on the battlefield too. Unfortunately for these demons however, that just isn’t so.

The march to “Eternally Husseini” continues! Only 54 days away now!
In the wake of Iraqi Islamic Resistance group Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba (HHN) forming the Golan Liberation Brigade, a very dear Iraqi-Syrian brother of mine said to me just the other day that never before has he been as proud to be Iraqi as he is right now. And I couldn’t agree more. That our dauntless moujahideen–who are already in the midst of fighting the merciless Takfiri enemy not only on our own soil but also across the western Iraqi border on multiple fronts in the Syrian Arab Republic–would make the strategic decision to put their best and brightest on the front lines of another arena in direct confrontation with the ‘Israeli’ enemy is a testament to their heroism, their Anti-Zionist vision, their love of martyrdom, their deep-rooted commitment to the path of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and their passion for the Palestinian cause. Leading HHN’s brave fighters of course is the one and only Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi. Rendered gorgeously and perfectly here by Mohammad Hamza aka Dr. Ever-Brill (founder of Intifada Street and my beloved brother), Harakat al-Nujaba’s fiery and exceptional chief is a moujahid paralleled by very, VERY few in the Ummah today. A son of Iraq’s fiercely Husseini and poverty-stricken Shi’a south, he began his revolutionary career as a student of Al-Shahid Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr. He was a rising star at the Hawza of Najaf al-Ashrad and completed his studies with the highest honors. Despite all his accolades however, he has always remained a humble servant beholden to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) and Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)

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.

On the seventh anniversary of the martyrdom of Hezbollah military leader Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, a biography, which includes unpublished pictures and a rich material that tackle his life, was circulated recently.
Replicas was written in Arabic and translated to English and Persian under the supervision of Hajj Imad Mughniyeh’s daughter, Fatima.
Two of the pictures were published in public for the first time showed Hezbollah military commander with the Lebanese former minister and Marada Movement leader MP Suleiman Franjiyeh. Continue reading Mughniyeh to Franjiyeh: Our Most Important Instructor Is the Israeli Enemy

One of the main “lessons learned” from the war of July-August 2006 is that the modern concept of asymmetric warfare, which emerged in the late 1990s in the United States, is already in dire need of revision. Hizbollah’s military performance during the war demonstrates that asymmetric warfare can no longer be identified exclusively with political actors who adopt “non-traditional” methods “that differ significantly from the opponent’s usual mode of operations” (as per the US military’s definition).
