Nakba Day Special – Eleventh & Twelfth Pieces Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Are Now Out: Archbishop Atallah Hanna and Fathi Shaqaqi

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Y’all better have your calendars marked! “Eternally Husseini” is just 10 days away! And since today is the 69th anniversary of the Nakba, yours truly and Intifada Street’s Mohammad Hamza, who did both of these absolutely remarkable pieces, decided to release something special for the occasion: Archbishop Atallah Hanna and martyred Islamic Jihad founder Fathi Shaqaqi (R.A.)

Some may object to us displaying a Christian figure, even one as revolutionary as the Archbishop, with the Zulfiqar Mic-Sword but we wholeheartedly reject such objections and criticisms. The Zulfiqar Mic-Sword represents a person who speaks the truth no matter what–just like Imam Hussein (A.S.)–and who fights for truth no matter what–just like Imam Hussein (A.S.) And there are very few in the Arab-Islamic world who do either of those things quite like Atallah Hanna. This is a man who has spoken up in defense of Islam while many of his fellow clergymen cowered; who has exposed the Zionist plot to foment Muslim-Christian division when many other “Arabs” and “Muslims” and “Christians” signed on to the scheme; who has stood upright for the Syrian Arab Republic when too many “Palestinians” and other “Arabs” betrayed their brothers and aided the destabilization plot; and who has not stopped fighting for the Palestinian Right of Return when large chunks of the “Palestinian leadership” have sold out to the Zionist occupation. Lest we forget that it was a Lebanese Christian, George Jordac, who wrote the best biography on Imam Ali (A.S.), “The Voice of Human Justice”. And lest we also forget that Christians flock to Karbala every year for Arba’een. Indeed, Imam Hussein (A.S.) and Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) are not merely personalities to be venerated solely by Shi’a nor just by Muslims but all of humanity. While I do not mention Archbishop Atallah Hanna by name on “Eternally Husseini”–he’s featured on another album of mine, “Enemy of the Entity”, in the closing track “Beautiful Corpse”–everything that he stands for is everything that the record embodies.

Today’s Jummah Supplications Are With The Palestinian Prisoners On Hunger Strike Across The Zionist Entity’s Dungeons

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to all you defiant and dauntless Mouqawamists. My supplications today are with occupied Palestine, the most oppressed nation on Earth, and its more than 1,500 hunger strikers rising up in the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity’s dungeons. Over 500 officials of Islamic Jihad have now joined in yet another Revolution of Empty Stomachs from besieged Gaza. A general walkout has been carried out in the West Bank, with schools, business and public transportation shutting down as solidarity spreads. The ’48 Lands will follow any moment now and the long-awaited Third Intifada just may be upon us if any of the starving moujahideen achieve martyrdom, including leader Marwan Barghouti. The Falasteeni prisoners are united, as activists from Fatah, Hamas, the PFLP, the DFLP, Islamic Jihad and the PRC are depriving themselves of food together in full rejection of the Zionist enemy and its barbarity. Their land stolen, their homes destroyed, their culture appropriated, their families broken, their olive trees burned, their weapons taken but their wills and their spirits, their hearts and their souls, UNMOVED. That is Palestine. Continue reading Today’s Jummah Supplications Are With The Palestinian Prisoners On Hunger Strike Across The Zionist Entity’s Dungeons

Lebanese Shi’a In Dahiyeh Chant “We Are All Yemen!” In Response To Al-Saud’s Sanaa Funeral Massacre

by Jonathan Azaziah

Long live the resistant Lebanese Shi’a of Dahiyeh (Beirut’s Southern Suburbs)! In the middle of an Ashoura procession, news about Saudi Arabia’s massacre of 700+ Yemeni civilians at a Sanaa funeral came in over the wires and immediately thereafter, the ever-defiant people starting belting out “Koulina al-Yemen!”, which literally translates to “WE ARE ALL YEMEN!” Talk about being overwhelmed with the spirit of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and his late descendant Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.)! There has been support for the Yemeni struggle against the Saudi regime from the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization, specifically from Harakat al-Nujaba chief Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi and Imam Ali (A.S.) Brigade Commander Abou Azrael. There has been backing from the Syrian Arab Republic, Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky of Nigeria and Palestine’s Islamic Jihad as well as the PFLP. But no people in the world have defended Yemen and raised their voices with eardrum-busting loudness for Ansarullah and the Yemeni people quite like the Lebanese and their heroic Mouqawamah. None.

For Quds Day 2016, Let Us Have Certainty (Yaqin) That Palestine Will Be Free!

by Jonathan Azaziah

Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) didn’t inaugurate International Al-Quds Day merely as an affirmation of the Anti-Zionism that is intrinsic and foundational to the Islamic Revolution, or even as a political declaration of the utmost solidarity in Islam’s Holiest Month for the world’s most oppressed people. The TRUE meaning of Youm Al-Quds, as understood within the unique framework of Imam Khomeini’s (R.A.) incomparably brilliant strategic, socio-economic, geopolitical and Islamic Liberationist thinking, is that just as it is SO important for Muslims to fast and pray with Yaqin (Certainty) during Ramadan–the time when the Holy Qur’an was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), the Battle of Badr was won and Imam Ali (A.S.) achieved martyrdom–it is also important to internalize the truth that that there is nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, more vital to the well-being of the Ummah than eliminating the ‘Israeli’ cancer and this battle must be waged with that very same Yaqin.

Khomeini (R.A.) was laying it out in no uncertain terms for all Muslims that the fight against World Zionism and the quest to restore Palestine is as important as any other Islamic pillar; he even told us, “If Muslims were united and each poured a single bucket of water on the Zionist entity, an unstoppable flood would wash it away.” Is there any doubting this?! Subhan’ALLAH! There is no GCC tyrant, no “Muslim” Brotherhood “cleric”, no so-called “leader” of any “Arab” government or regime, and damn sure no “Palestine Solidarity Movement” activist who has ever been bold enough to ideologically integrate Palestine’s liberation into the very everyday praxis of our religion. And who else but the spiritual sons of Imam Ruhollah (R.A.) who toppled a tyrant and made the Empire quiver is truly defending Falasteen with blood and sacrifices today? Who?!

Naksa Day 2016: We Shall Not Be Sad Or Broken But Hopeful

by Jonathan Azaziah

On Naksa Day 2016, 49 years after the Zionist abomination stole the rest of Al-Quds, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip (which has since been liberated though is still besieged), the Egyptian Sinai (which the ‘Israelis’ still control though they dismantled the ‘Yamit’ settlement) and the Syrian Golan Heights (which Syria regained a part of in the ’73 October War), I am going to refrain from thinking about the hundreds of thousands of refugees brought about by this Zionist aggression, the tens of thousands of innocents murdered, the hundreds of destroyed Palestinian and Syrian villages, the new hideous Jewish colonies that have been constructed and every other monstrosity inextricably linked to the criminal ‘Israeli’ entity’s putrefying presence. Though it is indeed the “day of the setback”, I am going to try with every fiber of my being not to dwell on the sadness, the tragedies, the shattered hearts and the broken dreams, for if we stay in that dark space, we shall be swallowed.

Imam Khomeini: The Seed From Which All Mighty Trees Of Resistance Grow Strong

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

An angelic birth…
That brought heavenly Nour to this hellish earth…
Our Noble Prophet’s (S.A.W.W.) son…
Whose life of greatness would solidify that our Noble Prophet (S.A.W.W.) won…
An orphan child…
Whose wings were magnificent, he couldn’t help but soar in style…
The winter downpour, it’s quite…
Incredible, it’s you who made the ground roar with life…
The summer’s blessed shower…
Who gave the globe’s oppressed power…
The spring’s newness…
Whose very aura was so enchanting it could bring music…
Whose fearlessness left kings clueless…
The autumn’s wonder, beauty personified…
Who sowed hope in the broken, the downtrodden and the brutally colonized…
The red rose…
Whose fragrance gives breath to dead souls…
The tiny seed…
Eternal in nature, from you grew the most mighty trees…
The giant voice…
Whose sound is so loud it crushes crowns and any and all flags that the tyrants hoist…
The thunderous speech…
That shook thrones and made corrupt governments weak…
That shook drones and awakened the dumb as they were slumbering deep…
That made the plunderers weak…
The white light…
Who made the night bright…
The black blade…
Who left the vultures, the vipers, the hyenas and the rats slayed…
Justice in the flesh…
Every attribute of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) encrusted in your chest…
The shine of stars…
Whose vision was so strategic it exceeded telescopes that could see the other side of Mars…
The fire burning up the sires of entropy…
Who filled the Empire with enmity…
Because you made the Empire a memory…
And petrified the Zionist enemy…
To the point it began recognizing its chemistry…
As unstable, unsustainable, it wouldn’t be embedded in the future…
‘Cause the Seed From Which All Mighty Trees of Resistance Grow, said it was tumor…
Said it would vanish from the pages of time…
You were and are too amazing to ever rate or define…
Such a militant, phoenix-like, sensational rise…
Could have only come straight from the Creator Divine…
You were and are our most wonderful sage and sublime…
The instigator of historical changes that basically flowed with cadence and rhyme…
The obliterator of swine…
The maker of Revolution who gave us a reason to be unafraid and ALIVE…
Your spiritual children, those of Wilayat al-Faqih, grow everyday like they were berating the skies…
The Coast Redwood of Hizbullah, stands the highest, the most vibrant and pure…
The Mountain Ash of Ansarullah, moves untouched and achieves triumphs in the violence of war…
The Giant Sequoia of the Iraqi Resistance, fights like you taught them, so God-reliant and raw…
Sheikh Zakzaky the Southern Blue Gum, every precious word he speaks is so defiant and sure…
The Alpine Ash of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, every moujahid ready to die for the cause…
And Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, your reflection, guiding them all…
Ya Imam Khomeini (R.A.), 27 years ago your spirit had to go on…
But you’re still here, and we still cheer and rock to your every rhythm like a classical slow song…
Ya Imam Khomeini (R.A.), because of you we will liberate our world from those who think they’re “chosen” but they’re so wrong…
Like you, the Ever-Rushing River of Truth, we will flow on…
Because you, Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah (R.A.), are the Seed From Which All Mighty Trees Of Resistance Grow Strong <3

Hamas About To Officially Return to the Resistance Axis

by Qassem Qassem, Al-Akhbar English

Iran and Hamas have almost mended their relationship, even though Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal has yet to visit Tehran. The two sides held long discussions in the last few days, which culminated with the Hamas delegation passing on the requests of their military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades. These included requests for supplies of Iranian weapons in preparation for any future conflicts.

Hamas’ political experience with the so-called “moderate Arabs,” and those close to the Muslim Brotherhood, has shown that Iranian support for the Palestinian cause and resistance to the Israeli occupation is more consistent. According to Hamas leaders, the last Israeli attack on Gaza — the third in six years — showed that the axis of Arab moderates, with which the organization tried to establish closer relations, stood against Hamas during the war.

Palestinian parties gather in support of Hizbullah in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Leaders representing major Palestinian parties and resistance groups in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday gathered to express their support for Hezbollah’s strike against the Israeli military earlier in the day, calling for a “joint front” with the Lebanese movement.

The event, which brought together representatives of Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and a number of others, was held to celebrate the attack that left at least two Israeli soldiers in the occupied Shebaa Farms dead.

Zionist Oppressors Stripping Palestinian Prisoners of Hunger Strike Gains

Palestinian prisoners wait for an opportune moment away from Israeli surveillance to call their parents and reassure them of their well-being in this harsh winter. Palestinian prisoners in various prisons talked about the rights they were stripped of recently by the Israeli prison authorities, and what they plan to do in the next few months in the absence of local and international attention.

Gaza – Taking advantage of the current situation in the Palestinian political and security establishment, the Israel Prison Service stripped Palestinian prisoners of all the rights they had won via individual and collective hunger strikes, some of which were record-breaking.

Since the kidnapping of three Israeli settlers in Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank in June 2014 — and during the recent war on Gaza in July and August 2014 — the Israeli authorities has reversed the previous gains achieved by Palestinian prisoners. Israel added hundreds of prisoners to the thousands already in prison. Scores were subjected to administrative detention, including prisoner Khader Adnan, who launched the hunger strike battle. On January 6, Adnan launched another hunger strike to protest his ongoing imprisonment without being formally charged with any crime.
