Muharram From Occupied Kashmir: The Way Of Imam Hussein (A.S.) Is The Way To Azadi

by Jonathan Azaziah

We mourn this month for Imam Hussein and the Karbala 72, the peace, blessings and mercy of ALLAH (SWT) be upon them for eternity, recalling tragic heroes like Abdullah ibn Omayr Abou Wahab al-Kalbi, the Christian-turned-Muslim who was dismembered and beheaded after single-handedly killing dozens of Yazid’s (L.A.) mercenaries; Habib ibn Madhahir al-Assadi, the elderly warrior who led the Imam’s (A.S.) left flank and stayed by his side until martyrdom; Zuhayr ibn Qayn al-Bajali, a man who at first didn’t even want to speak to Aba Abdallah (A.S.), then wound up one of his fiercest defenders and the leader of his left flank as he divorced his own wife to fight with him on the Iraqi plains before being speared to death by Shimr’s (L.A.) savages; and many, many others.

Zionist-Phalangist Slaughter Of 3,500 Palestinians And Lebanese Shi’a At Sabra & Shatilah 36 Years Ago Invokes The Memory of Ashoura

by Jonathan Azaziah

Sabra and Shatilah Day. Very few sections of the calendar are associated with such sadness and savagery.

First though, a momentary flashback. When the Jewish terrorists who would found the artificial ‘Israeli’ regime began Plan D, i.e. the ethnic cleansing of Palestine aka the Nakba, there were a series of massacres they perpetrated that defied the parameters of humanity and reminded the world that Satan walks the Earth in human form. For Palestine itself, there was Deir Yassin, executed by the Stern and Irgun gangs, as well Dueima, carried out by the Haganah, in which upwards of 100 Palestinians were slaughtered, including children who were beaten dead with sticks and mothers and fathers who were pushed into their homes, locked in and dynamited.

For Lebanon, there’s Salha, where bloodthirsty Jewish colonizers marched 105 Lebanese men, women and children into the village’s small masjid and didn’t stop shooting until everyone was dead, along with Houla, where Jews burned 85 Lebanese civilians alive and ethnically cleansed nearly 11,000 Lebanese from their lands. In modern times, we think of the barbarity displayed in Jenin during the Second Intifada as well as Operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009 and Operation Mighty Cliff in the summer of 2014.

Yet nothing in the history of the usurping Zionist entity compares to the slaughter at aforementioned Sabra and Shatila which began on this day 36 years ago and ended on September 18th. The fanatical and hateful Phalangists, armed to the teeth, financed, trained and logistically supported by ‘Israel’, monstrously and sadistically slaughtered around 3,500 Palestinians and Lebanese Shi’a for 72 hours, engaging in the kind of debauched killing that you’d think only existed in horror movies. Pregnant women with their babies cut out of their stomachs. Men were sliced with knives from their genitals to their throats. Children had their skulls cracked wide open. Corpses were mutilated.

Yemen’s Ansarullah Fights Like Imam Hussein (A.S.) And Scores A Muharram Victory Over Al-Saud In Hudaydah’s Kilo-16

by Jonathan Azaziah

The curses of ALLAH (SWT) be upon the monstrous regimes of Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The blessings of ALLAH (SWT) be upon Yemen’s righteous Resistance forces led by Ansarullah. In what amounts to yet another crime against humanity carried out by Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, Kilo-16 in besieged Hudaydah was mercilessly bombed on Tuesday and at least 16 civilians were slaughtered. Dozens more were wounded and they are fighting for their lives right now in one of the many makeshift hospitals across Hudaydah, where hundreds of thousands of Yemenis are being starved to death by the US-UK-‘Israeli’-backed coalition of cowards. Following the atrocity, Ansarullahi legend and chief of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee in Sanaa Muhammad Ali al-Houthi said that the invaders’ attack was dangerously close to warehouses of humanitarian relief supplies and told them to beware of any further maneuvers.

Zaria Is Karbala: Sheikh Zakzaky, Now Unjustly Imprisoned For 33 Months, Embodies The Spirit Of Muharram

by Jonathan Azaziah

It is fitting that holy and somber Muharram comes just as we hit month 33–it is beyond an abomination of humanity that it has gone on this long–of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s unjust and entirely punitive imprisonment by the Nigerian ZOG. Along with thirsty and besieged Yemen and Gaza, there isn’t a place in the world that so similarly resembles Karbala on Ashoura more than the Nigerian Shi’a heartland of Zaria and there is no man whose sacrifices are so closely akin to those of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) than the Islamic Movement of Nigeria’s saintly leader. When we flashback to the Nigerian military’s savage and psychopathic attack against the innocents of the Husseiniyyah Baqiyatullah on December 12th-14th, 2015, in which over 1,000 Nigerian Shi’a were slaughtered, the 10th of Muharram in the year 680 becomes as vivid as if it was happening again right here… Right now… Right in front of your face.

Iraqi Islamic Resistance Group Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba Stages A Festival For Yemen In Holy Karbala

by Jonathan Azaziah

No limit for the love I have for my countrymen, the warriors of Iraq’s Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba (HHN). Here they are, fighting on not one, not two, but THREE fronts–the homeland, scouring numerous Iraqi cities for the remnants of Daesh and picking apart Zionist spy networks; all across Syria, assisting the Syrian Arab Army to finish off the Takfiri scourge; and the occupied Golan Heights in direct confrontation with the ‘Israeli’ enemy, continuing to prepare for the upcoming battle to liberate the area–and yet what do they do in the midst of it all?! Launch an impromptu festival in the holy city of Karbala to honor the Yemeni people, the Yemeni Resistance and the Yemeni struggle against Zionist Al-Saud!! Attended by representatives from both the Sunni and Shi’a communities, including prominent Mouqawamist Sayyed Hashem al-Haidari, in a large and important showing of Islamic unity, HHN is determined to live up to Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr’s (R.A.) standards of raising your fist for the downtrodden no matter how oppressed YOU happen to be. Indeed, HHN’s message couldn’t be anymore elucidated: Iraq and Yemen are two fingers on the same fist punching through the three-headed beast comprised of America, ‘Israel’ and Saudi Arabia. Iraq and Yemen are intertwined in blood and defiance. Iraq and Yemen are day in and day out seeing their Martyrs depart this miserable world and head towards somewhere better… Hand in hand. There is no separation between the Iraqi and Yemeni struggles. And no matter what battlefield Harakat al-Nujaba’s moujahideen are on, Yemen never stops moving through their hearts like shooting stars.

MossadDaesh Slaughters Dozens of Shi’a Muslims In Southern Iraq… Jummah Mubarak To Our Martyrs…

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to the blessed martyrs of today’s MossadDaesh attack on the Iraqi Shi’a Muslims of Moussayib near Karbala. At least 31 of our people have been slaughtered and more than 35 more have been wounded after ISIS unleashed a female suicide bomber in a crowded souk. Death toll is expected to rise. I have just three words for you Takfiri terrorist pieces of filth: HAYHAT MINNA ZILLA. You strike our women and children in markets as they fast, we will strike you in your bases and crush you. You blow yourselves up at an ice cream shop as our families are breaking their fasts, we will chase you down into the holes you crawled up out of and make sure you never emerge again. You harm the innocent and most defenseless among us, we will, whether your American-‘Israeli’-Saudi masters want it or not, eventually meet you on the battlefield and return you to the demons who spawned you. HAYHAT MINNA ZILLA. Continue reading MossadDaesh Slaughters Dozens of Shi’a Muslims In Southern Iraq… Jummah Mubarak To Our Martyrs…

The Brotherhood Between Malcolm X (R.A.) and Dr. Mohammad Taki Mehdi (R.A.): How Shi’a Islam Changed Malcolm X Forever

by Jonathan Azaziah

To mark Malcolm X’s (R.A.) 92nd birthday, I’m going to go ahead and drop a gem on y’all that is going to both wow you and put a great many things into perspective about the revolutionary giant’s life and martyrdom–a gem that you’ve never encountered before because Saudi-funded “Muslim” groups and “Muslim” Brotherhood types have attempted to falsely and maliciously portray Malcolm’s reversion to Islam as a “victory” for Salafi-Wahhabism. While El-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz was indeed guided by the great Sunni scholars of Al-Azhar, and while he famously wrote in the Egyptian Gazette on August 25th, 1964 that he was trying with all his heart “to live the life of a true Sunni Muslim”, the man who had the most profound impact on him and who represented the guiding force that led him away from the heterodox beliefs of the Nation of Islam, was Iraqi-American Shi’a scholar, activist and father of the Arab nationalist struggle in the US, Dr. Mohammad Taki “M.T.” Mehdi (R.A.) Born in Karbala where his father owned a coffee shop and raised in New York City, M.T. was Husseini to the core and a towering figure himself, fiercely campaigning for the Palestinian cause until the day of his death and routinely exposing Zionist domination of media, politics and entertainment within the United Snakes of IsraHELL. He was harassed, bullied, attacked and there were multiple attempts on his life by Jewish terrorists throughout his time on this plane. The Iraqi legend first met Malcolm X in 1958 and they maintained close contact over the next 7 years.

Tenth Piece Of “Eternally Husseini” Promo Artwork Is Out: Malcolm Latif Shabazz

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Not much longer now, y’all! “Eternally Husseini” is just 16 days away!

But I do not write to you today from the apex of triumph and defiance that informs much of our identity as Shi’a. Instead, I write to you from the other side of the spectrum which is also very much a part of our being as the soldiers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.): Agony, tragedy and heartbreak–all felt with unimaginable intensity by Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the Karbala 72 on Ashoura. For today is the 4th anniversary of the martyrdom of Malcolm Latif Shabazz (R.A.), the grandson of our eternal revolutionary teacher Hajj Malik el-Shabazz aka Malcolm X (R.A.) Young Malcolm was murdered under exceptionally murky circumstances in Mexico City, where he had traveled to express solidarity with a deported labor organizer as well as to build a broad coalition of strugglers against Zio-Imperialism, from the oppressed Mexican people to oppressed Muslims in the US. No such bridges were constructed however because the sole male heir of Malcolm X was beaten to death outside a bar, of all places. The official story shall not be repeated here because it shall not be dignified with a retort. In the same vein, the Zionist media’s coverage of Young Malcolm’s martyrdom was so insanely execrable, deliberately deceptive and overtly racist, with particular malice towards his blessed family, that it too shall not even be dignified herein.

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.

Millions of Pilgrims Mark Arbaeen In Karbala, Defying Daesh, ‘Israel’, the US ZOG and Saudi Arabia

by Jonathan Azaziah

Feast your eyes on a sight–beautiful, dazzling, shimmering Iraq–that can only be described as breathtaking. Over 20 million pilgrims from 60 different countries entered the holy Iraqi city of Karbala to mark Arbaeen today, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) martyrdom. It is not only we Shi’a who are marching and demonstrating on these santicified sands to celebrate the sacrifice, the heroism, the steadfastness and the RESISTANCE of Aba Abdallah (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, martyred at the hands of the maniacal tyrant Yazid (L.A.) on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians, Shabakis, Ezadis, Zoroastrians and even some Hindus too. Regardless of Islamic school of thought or faith, the people of spirituality, dignity and anti-oppression stand as one Husseini unit on Arbaeen because the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) is a symbol of defiance and rejection of despotism for all of humankind.
