Some souls are simply destined to be heroes, you know? The kinds of folks who, from very early on in their lives, have nothing on their minds but coming to the aid of their fellow humans even if it means losing the air in their own lungs in the process. Rachel Corrie was such a being. And it was on this day 14 years ago that she was murdered in cold blood by the Jewish supremacist entity. The Second Intifada was raging in Gaza as Palestinian Resistance forces heavily engaged settlers and occupation soldiers in a steadfast effort to liberate the Strip. Typically however, because fighting moujahideen face-to-face is something that the ‘Israeli’ enemy’s puny army has always failed to do, IOF decided to target civilians in an effort to convince Mouqawamah fighters from moving forward with their righteous mission. Disgustingly, ‘Israel’ rolled out its Caterpillar D-9 military bulldozers and began eviscerating homes in the strategic southern Gaza city of Rafah. And there stood Rachel Corrie.

Rest in peace, power and purity to Thomas “Tom” Hurndall, a genuine friend of the Palestinian cause and beloved champion of the Moustazafeen, who joined the ancestors on this day 13 years ago. On April 11th, 2003, in the midst of the Second Intifada in the Gaza Strip’s Rafah area, Tom was taking Palestinian children in his arms to protect them from ‘Israeli’ occupation forces’ artillery and bombardments. He escorted many to safety. But in doing so, he also put himself in the line of fire and a murderous, usurping Jewish sniper shot him in the head. Tom remained in a vegetative state for over 9 months before passing away on January 13, 2004. We could speak on the cowardice of the ‘Israeli’ enemy and its inability to stand face-to-face and eye-to-eye with the indigenous and their international allies who reject its Jewish supremacist claims and regional hegemony; we could speak of its anti-Gentile hatred and its insatiable bloodlust as well. But it would better serve the memory of Mr. Hurndall and the Palestinians he gave his life defending to instead speak of his selfless commitment to Palestine’s liberation; his bravery in the face of his monstrous disease known as ‘Israel’; and the sacrifice he made for a land that wasn’t his but a people who he considered his brothers in humanity. The humble hero Thomas Hurndall was the essence of what the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) was supposed to be and for a while, truly was.

Syria is, as I once described it on a previous song, “The heaven on earth that every man imagines/Graveyard of empires, land of jasmine/Genesis of civilization and the patron of resistance/Hallowed ground of the ancients and the scriptures/More than just a state, it is the basis of existence/Mother of the East, Father of the West/To the martyr, it is the harnesser of breath and to the invader it is the harbinger of death/” In short, Syria is EVERYTHING. It is for this reason that I wrote “Long Live Syria” almost four years ago. Then, because of the hideous failure of so-called “Anti-Imperialists” to expose the Zionist-Saudi chemical weapons false flag in Eastern Ghouta in August 2013 for what it was, I wrote the infinitely more vicious and enraged follow-up, “Long Live Syria II (Stay Silent O’ Cowards)” – of which the aforementioned lyrics are taken from. And yet here we are, three years after that, and the Western-Zionist-GCC media’s propaganda war on Syria continues unabated, as does the complicity of many segments of the “activist” population, Muslims and non-Muslims, Arabs and non-Arabs alike. This comes in spite of the fact that the Syrian Arab Republic has defended Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine and supported the resistance movements in the latter two with arms and blood. Continue reading “Long Live Syria III (Our Backbone)”, 3rd Single Off “Eternally Husseini”, Is Officially Out!

Jummah Mubarak to gorgeous, resistant Yemen! Just a few moments after midnight today, Ansarullah fired a Burqan-1 ballistic missile–a SCUD that was modified and strengthened by the brilliant engineers of the Houthis’ Missile Unit–at the murderous Saudi regime’s “King” Abdul Aziz Airport in Jeddah, scoring a direct hit and causing massive damage. This is reminiscent of the Palestinian Resistance’s spectacular assault on “Ben-Gurion” Airport in occupied Lydd during Operation Mighty Cliff (aka Protective Edge), which shut down the travels of usurping Jewish supremacist settlers and caused billions of dollars in damage to the ‘Israeli’ economy. Continue reading Jummah Mubarak Yemen! Ansarullah Hits Jeddah Airport With Burqan-1 Ballistic Missile!

Thank you Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. Watching the Hizbullah Secretary-General deliver yet another classic speech yesterday, I was reminded of “Spider’s Web”, the 25th and final song of my 2015 album “Son of Kufa Vol. 1: Rise Of The Anomaly”. I wrote the joint out of incredible inspiration after reading the Sayyed’s famous May 26th, 2000 speech in the legendary Southern Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil for the billionth time. Those seven little words, “‘Israel’ is weaker than a spider’s web”, have resonated with me for as long as I can remember and they represent the very cornerstone of my worldview when it comes to the cancerous existence of ‘Israel’ and International Zionism generally. Those seven little words represent hope, truth and victory all at once. Those seven little words are our comfort in times of what can feel like overwhelming gloaming. Because if Hizbullah could prevail then, and if Hizbullah could prevail again in the 2006 July War, and if Hizbullah and its allies can prevail today in Syria against Zio-Takfirism, then Palestine, ALL OF PALESTINE, can and will prevail tomorrow. Continue reading Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah 8-13-16: ‘Israel’ Today Is Still Weaker Than A Spider’s Web!

The Saudi invaders really fight like the usurping, occupying Jews, don’t they? Mere hours after Ansarullah entered the heart of Saudi Arabia’s Najran City, capping off a lightning advancement into the historically Yemeni region and solidifying one of the true game-changing successes of the Yemeni Mouqawamist struggle, murderous, monstrous, marauding Al-Saud decided to drop US-UK-made bombs on not one, but SEVERAL children’s schools in Saada, slaughtering dozens of Yemeni little ones and wounding scores more. The pictures are gut-wrenching. The videos will make your blood boil to temperatures hotter than the core of Venus. And all of this footage is a reminder that the corroded Saudi “royals” are lashing out at the most innocent and defenseless of Yemenis because these cowardly maggots can’t stand toe-to-toe with the Houthiyeen. They’re just not capable of fighting with honor. Syrian President Dr. Bashar al-Assad famously called the Wahhabi Najdis “half-men” and he couldn’t be more right.

Al-Khalil (Ma’an) — A Palestinian man was shot dead after stabbing an Israeli soldier at the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern West Bank city of Al-Khalil.
The mosque’s director Munther Abu al-Failat told Ma’an he had been told by witnesses that the soldier was stabbed about three times before he shot back at the Palestinian. Early reports in Israeli and Palestinian media named the Palestinian as Assad al-Salayma, although local sources told Ma’an the man, believed to be in his 20s, had not yet been identified. AFP reported that Israeli soldiers had been preventing Palestinians from accessing the mosque when the incident took place. Both the Israeli soldier and the Palestinian were moved from the mosque by ambulance, although the Palestinian was confirmed dead before he arrived at the hospital.

sraeli media outlets have been publishing, in an unprecedented move, the 2014 Gaza war diary since early April 2015. These documents discuss the Israeli army’s failures in the face of Hamas. The most serious Israeli avowal was that of Ofer Shelah, a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, which was made public on April 2 and caused vehement reactions.
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — A Palestinian was critically injured after being shot in the eye with a rubber-coated steel bullet during clashes with Israeli forces in the al-Issawiya village of occupied East Jerusalem late Wednesday.
Member of a local committee in al-Issawiya, Muhammad Abu al-Hummus, said that Suleiman Mahmoud al-Tarbi, 20, was leaving his home when he was “directly” targeted by Israeli forces from a short range.
Abu al-Hummus added that al-Tarbi fell to the ground when he was injured, before being assaulted and detained by Israeli forces despite his injuries.
Al-Tarbi was taken to the Hadassa Ein Karem Hospital. Continue reading Jewish occupation forces shoot Palestinian in eye during clashes
