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.”

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.

A Message For American Muslims, Especially Those SJW, Anti-Trump “Progressives”: Stop Acting Like Jews

by Jonathan Azaziah

I can’t for the life of me understand how American Muslims are “fearing for their lives” in the wake of Donald Trump ascending to the presidency. My brothers and sisters… Chill out and get a damn grip on yourselves. Seriously. What the hell is wrong with you? Y’all aren’t just being completely delusional and totally Judaized but an excessive combination of both. You know when it was bad? Like… STUPID bad? Like… Blood-spilling-in-the-streets bad? After Mossad and its allied criminal network of Jewish supremacists in New York City knocked down the Twin Towers. THAT was a scary time. The neocon-run Bush regime had all types of Americans ***actually*** believing that every Muslim was in league with “Al-Qaeda” and there were beatings, robberies, aggressions, mass arrests and even killings–in other words, REAL hate crimes–all over the country. Hard to find a Muslim in the United Snakes of IsraHELL who didn’t deal with some form of sanguinary Islamophobia, including myself.

From The Soccer Field To The Battlefield: RIP To Hizbullah Fighter Qassem Shamkha

by Jonathan Azaziah

This is why the Southern Lebanese people are the most beautiful people, bar none. Tip your fitteds and bow your heads to martyred 19-year old Hizbullah fighter Qassem Shamkha, born in the Jnoubiyeh village of Bourj Qallawiyah and raised in the Dahiyeh neighborhood of Bourj el-Barajneh. Qassem was a beloved football player for Al-Ahed, Hizbullah’s soccer club and the best team in the Lebanese Premier League, not to mention a key part of its championship run last year. As a midfielder, he had otherworldly talent and was on the fast track to becoming a bonafide superstar at home and obviously, the longer he would’ve played, he certainly would’ve been scouted by an international squad at some point.

Portrait Of Virgin Mother Maryam (A.S.) Shines Bright In Iraq’s Liberated Qaraqosh

by Jonathan Azaziah

ALLAHU Akbar! Portrait of the Virgin Mother Maryam (A.S.) still stands luminously in the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Iraq’s Qaraqosh despite being nearly burnt to ash by Daesh. Looks like the Talmudic, Christ-hating terrorists couldn’t destroy everything, could they? Striking Star Salute to the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), most especially Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba and Kata’ib Hizbullah who spearheaded the offensive, for liberating Qaraqosh and preserving its sanctities. The commitment that the people, resistance movements and soldiers of Iraq have to upholding Islamic-Christian unity is, in and of itself, a dagger and a half, nay, TWO daggers right in both eyes of the Zionist New World Order. Continue reading Portrait Of Virgin Mother Maryam (A.S.) Shines Bright In Iraq’s Liberated Qaraqosh

Jummah Mubarak Yemen! Ansarullah Hits Jeddah Airport With Burqan-1 Ballistic Missile!

by Jonathan Azaziah

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!

With ISIS Slaughtering Dozens Of Shi’a In Baghdad Today, It’s Time To Declare “We Are All Karbala!”

by Jonathan Azaziah

Iraq, my love, you tear me up inside. It’s been one of those days in which you make me wanna scream until my voicebox collapses. At least 43 Iraqi Shi’a mourners were slaughtered and over 63 others were terribly wounded when an ISIS terrorist detonated a suicide vest in a crowded market of Baghdad’s Al-Shaab district during an Ashoura possession today. Al-Shaab is the same area that was also struck last July on the day of Iraq’s worst bombing ever in Karrada… Now it can mark its own blocks and street-lamps with the names, faces and stories of martyrs. And since these forces of Wahhabi-Takfiri malevolence also seek to spread division and sedition, just to show that they are equal-opportunity slaughterers, they also gunned down 8 Iraqi policemen–4 Shi’a, 3 Sunnis, and an Ezadi–in Moutaybijah and killed four family members of an anti-ISIS Sunni militia chief in Ishaq, bringing the total number of Shouhada today to at least 55. Since it is Muharram, perhaps it is time that we not only declare that “We Are One Hand!”–and make no mistake, we absolutely are–but “We Are All Karbala!” as well. Continue reading With ISIS Slaughtering Dozens Of Shi’a In Baghdad Today, It’s Time To Declare “We Are All Karbala!”

Deviant, Disturbing Innovations Of Tatbir and Zanjeer Are Promoted By Zionist Media To Spread Shiaphobia

by Jonathan Azaziah

To all my non-Shi’a Muslim brothers and sisters as well as my non-Muslim comrades: DO NOT FOLLOW THE SHAMEFUL ZIONIST MEDIA AND THE EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL ALTERNATIVE MEDIA (here’s looking at your despicable “reportage” RT and Sputnik) ABOUT WHAT SHI’A MUSLIMS DO ON ASHOURA. The bloody pictures that are being promoted across the spectrum of extremist Shi’a disgustingly self-flagellating and cutting their children DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT represent Islam in any way, shape or form, whether the Shi’a school of thought or otherwise. These barbaric practices, known as Tatbir and Zanjeer, are alien to Islam and have been forbidden by just about major Shi’a authority on the planet, including (but not limited to) Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari and others.

The Quintessential Ashoura Anthem Is Here: “Blood Of The Lion”, Second Single Off “Eternally Husseini”

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Salutations brothers and sisters! On this most revolutionary day, this most magnificent occasion, this 1,336th Ashoura when blood triumphed over the sword–to borrow the expression of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah–and Imam Hussein (A.S.) as well as his partisans achieved martyrdom at the hands of the vile Yazid (L.A.) on the hallowed ground of Karbala, I present to y’all my soul on wax; my beating, bleeding heart in lyrical form; an ode to Abou Abdallah (A.S.) to end all odes: “Blood Of The Lion”, the second single off my upcoming album “Eternally Husseini”, produced entirely by my extra-exceptionally gifted dear brother Iron Galaxy and filled with the illustrious artwork of Intifada Street founder Mohammad Hamza. This song–which is more like a Hip-Hop Nasheed than a traditional grouping of bars and hooks–doesn’t merely encapsulate the pain of the 10th of Muharram and apply that agony to the difficulties we are warding off today as an Ummah generally and as Shi’at al-Hussein specifically, it bangs like Hizbullah rocketry crashing down on occupied Haifa and making the settlers run for their miserable lives!

On Ashoura Eve (Tasu’a), Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Reminds Al-Saud That “We Are All Yemen!”

by Jonathan Azaziah

Leave it to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the Luminous Light of Lebanon, to turn Tasu’a, the 9th Day of Muharram and what we call Ashoura Eve (the 24-hour period before Imam Hussein’s [A.S.] martyrdom on the sands of Karbala), into a bonafide, empire-shaking spectacle of Mouqawamah. The Hizbullah Secretary-General covered the usual array of topics as he appeared live before a blistering crowd in Dahiyeh’s Sayyed al-Shouhada Complex, saluting the Syrian people for their steadfastness in the face of the “regime change” conspiracy and lambasting the American ZOG for attempting to break off Raqqa and Deir Ezzor from Syria in service of ‘Israel’, but it was when the Sayyed touched on Yemen that those in attendance really went HAYWIRE, masha’ALLAH! The moment that Sayyed Abou Hadi slammed the Saudi regime for its criminal massacre at the funeral in Sanaa three days ago, the gorgeously resistant people of the Southern Beirut Suburbs started chanting, “Death To Al-Saud!” So loud were their cries in fact that the Wahhabi tyrants themselves could most likely hear it in their fortified but finite palaces in Riyadh and Jeddah! And when Nasrallah bellowed “Koulina al-Yemen (We Are All Yemen)!” like only he could bellow, the crowd cried out in unison and erupted even further, like a zillion bursts of thunder rattling the skies. Lubnan’s Liberator said that the blood of the Yemeni people will drag Al-Saud into the abyss of history and that it has no chance whatsoever of prevailing. The Moustazafeen of Yemen, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah matter-of-factly said, will be and already are victorious. Like he has been Palestine’s undisputed champion for decades, the Sayyed is, without a doubt and without competition, the foremost champion of Yemen on Earth.

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.
