Buhari Just Can’t Stop Slaughtering Nigerian Shi’a: New Massacre Brings Arbaeen Martyr Count To 42

by Jonathan Azaziah

Death to the Buhari regime. And then another death to the Buhari regime. And one thousand… NO… TEN THOUSAND MORE deaths to the corrupt and criminal, traitorous and treacherous, venal and villainous, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed Buhari regime. Barely 24 hours after massacring nearly a dozen Nigerian Shi’a activists of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria as they marched for Arbaeen near Zuba in Abuja’s barrens, Shabbos Goy Buhari’s goons were at it again, this time slaughtering 32 more innocent souls as the march continued through Maraba, also on the capital’s outskirts. Martyr count for the Arbaeen Symbolic Trek now stands at 42 and it may get higher in the morning because many of the wounded are in critical condition.

Arbaeen Isn’t Merely A “Religious Gathering”, It’s A Revolutionary Affirmation Of Counter-Hegemony

by Jonathan Azaziah

With 30 million Husseinis converging on Iraq’s holy city of Karbala for Arbaeen 2018, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s sharp words about the event come to mind, “The march for Arbaeen is like a soft war that splits the enemy from the inside without firing a bullet.” The Imam of the Islamic Revolution couldn’t be more correct. Arbaeen isn’t merely a religious gathering–and the largest one in the world at that–which marks 40 days of mourning following the paradoxical tragedy and triumph of Ashoura. It’s a revolutionary affirmation of counter-hegemony, anti-terrorism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Parasitism, Anti-Imperialism, Anti-Takfirism and counter-hasbara. It’s an impregnable defense of Islam and a reminder to the various tentacles of World Arrogance that the lovers of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the defenders of the Pure Household (A.S.) that he’s the beating heart of shall not be kept from him. Not now. Not ever.

Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.): The Spring of Righteous Vengeance Who Brought Honor To Imam Hussein (A.S.) And Crushed His Killers

by Jonathan Azaziah

My uncle Ishaq-Hussein Azaziah (R.A.) told me many a time before ‘Israel’ gunned him down in cold blood that there are two Kufas: The one which betrayed Imam Hussein (A.S.) to the tyrannical terrorist Yazid (L.A.) in 61 A.H. and the one which avenged Imam Hussein (A.S.) in grandiose revolutionary fashion in 66-67 A.H. The latter was led by the hero of heroes and the blade of blades, Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.) And the reflection period between Ashoura and Arbaeen wouldn’t be complete without the remembrance of his unbridled and glorious rebellion, which not only saw an uprising against despotism in the name of the one, true, Muhammadi-Husseini Islam but also the pursuit of the psychopathic perpetrators of the massacre on Ashoura.

Imam Ali (A.S.), in Saying 324 of Nahjul Balagha, wrote, “Throw a stone in return from where one comes to you because [there are times that] evil can only be met with evil.” Mukhtar al-Thaqafi (R.A.) took this to heart and pursued the manglers and stranglers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) to the proverbial ends of the earth. The Commander of Commanders appointed Ibrahim al-Ashtar (R.A.), the son of Imam Ali’s (A.S.) right hand Malik al-Ashtar (R.A.), as his own vicegerent. A most fitting selection.

Amid Global “Muslim” Silence, Buhari Regime Slaughters Nigerian Shi’a Marching For Arbaeen And Sheikh Zakzaky

by Jonathan Azaziah

Muhammadu Buhari, the tyrant of Nigeria barely clinging to power thanks to a “democratic” veneer, just can’t stop persecuting the Nigerian Shi’a community led by Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s Islamic Movement of Nigeria. With just 48 hours before Arbaeen, in which tens of millions of Shi’a Muslims, Sunni Muslims, Sufi Muslims, Christians and many others flock from all around the world to Karbala to honor Imam Hussein (A.S.), the “democratic” despot’s trigger-happy, bloodthirsty, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed military opened fire on the imprisoned Sheikh’s partisans as they marched through Zuba on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital of Abuja in what they’re calling the “Arbaeen Symbolic Trek”–to show solidarity with their brethren in Iraq and of course call for the freedom of Sheikh Zakzaky. At least 10 innocents were martyred and scores more were wounded. The followers of Africa’s Khomeini have vowed to continue their quest for the next 72 hours, declaring that nothing, including the Buhari dictatorship’s bullets, will keep them from Sayyed al-Shouhada (A.S.)

Disgrace To Iraq, Disgrace To Islam: Neocon War Criminal Michael Rubin Defiles Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Shrine With His Presence

by Jonathan Azaziah

Zionist Jew and neocon war criminal Michael Rubin speaking inside Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) shrine. Abomination. Just… an abomination. Still completely whammied that this isn’t something out of our worst nightmares. It actually happened. This vile and monstrous creature was inside the haram of our beloved Aba Abdallah (A.S.) to give a talk about Iraq’s future on the somber occasion of Imam Zayn al-Abideen’s (A.S.) martyrdom anniversary–something this hateful and parasitic demon mistakenly, insultingly and despicably declared to be a “festival”. The first question is: Who the f*** invited him there? Was it the MI6-Mossad-linked Shirazis? Was it the “moderate” (read: Westoxified) Modaressis, who basically take orders from the Shirazis? Was it Saudi-owned Muqtada al-Sadr? Was it the new stooge in charge of the Iraqi government, Adel Abdul Mahdi al-Mountafiqi? Who? The second and perhaps more important question is: Why the f*** didn’t anyone remove his sanguinary Yahoudling hide from the maqam the moment that they knew who he was?

The 1305th Martyrdom Anniversary Of Imam Zayn al-Abideen (A.S.): Time To Remember Him As A Pioneer of Resistance

by Jonathan Azaziah

We mourn today. But we also reflect and give thanks for the immortal gift we’ve been given in Ahlul Bayt (A.S.), specifically the 4th Imam, Ali Ibn Hussein (A.S.), aka Zayn al-Abideen, aka Imam Sajjad, who was martyred on this day 1,305 years ago. The Umayyad tyrant of the time, Al-Walid ibn Abdul Malik (L.A.), a man who hated the Household of Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) more than his father Abdul Malik ibn Marwan (L.A.) and maybe even more than Yazid (L.A.), couldn’t bear to live in a world with the Imam (A.S.) breathing the same air that he breathed, declaring, “I cannot rest as long as Ali ibn Hussein is in this world!” So he ordered Uthman ibn Hayyan al-Murri (L.A.), the ruthless Governor of Medina, to have the son of Sayyed al-Shouhada (A.S.) poisoned. But we prefer not to dwell on the tragical end of Imam Sajjad’s (A.S.) life, as he, like his father, knew that martyrdom was his fate and he embraced it with a clear heart.

So instead, we’d rather focus on Imam Zayn al-Abideen’s (A.S.) Mouqawamah, his words which were as akin to precious gemstones as those of Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Imam Ali (A.S.) themselves, and his prayers, which were of such astonishing exquisiteness and brightness that the songs of Angels (A.S.) could be composed from them and stars could be eclipsed by them. Indeed, what Al-Sajjad (A.S.) taught us is that words… Matter. Words… Can topple tyranny. Words… Can remake the machinery of history in mid-production for the Moustakbireen and send it in a completely different direction on behalf of the Moustazafeen.

Unseen In Zio-Khaleeji Media: Massive Processions For Imam Hussein (A.S.) In Saudi-Occupied Qatif

by Jonathan Azaziah

Qatif in Saudi-occupied Al-Sharqiyyah. The land of Shahid Ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr (R.A.) The land of the oppressed but defiant. The land of the poverty-stricken but spiritually abundant. The land of the terrorized and repressed but unbroken. The land of the 1979 uprising that shook the illegitimate throne of the Saudi “royals” like a baby in the arms of violent, unfit parents, reminding them how finite their reign really is; that wrote the legend of another Shahid, the 19-year old revolutionary Hussein Mansour al-Qalaf (R.A.), whose example was so inspiring that Al-Saud murdered him and ordered his family to bury him in secret; that paved the way for the struggle of courage and dignity that is raging to this very moment. And raging it most certainly is. For despite the miserable, hateful and sectarian Saudi regime implementing clamp-down measures on Qatif and the rest of Eastern Province for the month of Muharram, these tiger-like souls gathered in their thousands and let the pounding of their chests and cries of “Labaykah ya Hussein (A.S.)!” and “Labaykah ya Zaynab (A.S.)!” instill fear in the Najdi “princes” like it was ’79 all over again.

Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi On Ashoura: The Light That Humiliates The Darkness

by Jonathan Azaziah

Like Hizbullah gliding on the path to victory through the leadership of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria standing taller than mountain peaks under the guidance of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, the Yemeni Islamic Resistance of Ansarullah fights how it fights and wins how it wins because Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi is at the helm. On Ashoura this year, Yemen’s Wa3d al-Sadeq (Truthful Promise) simply astonished, declaring that in perfect lockstep with Imam Hussein (A.S.) on the 10th of Muharram in 61 A.H., the Yemeni nation won’t surrender. “No matter how far the coalition of aggression goes in its criminality and brutality, we are as steadfast as steadfast can be and will not give up. Never, ever.” The Karameh (dignity) and Hob al-Houriyeh (love of freedom) possessed by Yemen’s people are embedded in their very DNA. It is for this reason that Al-Saud, the UAE and their Western ZOG backers will not find it improbable but IMPOSSIBLE to prevail. The Dahyan Dazzler reaffirmed his support for all free, independent and resistant nations and struggles, chiefly Palestine and Bahrain. And then he boomed that Yemen will remain at the forefront of the confrontation with US-Zionist hegemony.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Electrifies On Ashoura, Tells ‘Israel’ That Its Scheme Is Over And Hizbullah Has Precision Missiles

by Jonathan Azaziah

The moment that we’ve all been waiting for is here: Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s Ashoura speech. After 9 days of predominantly religious lectures, the 10th day of Muharram always sees the Two-Time Liberator of Lebanon merge commemorations of Imam Hussein (A.S.) with the current events around the region and GOOD GOD did he deliver! Firing on all cylinders, Sayyed Abou Hadi reminded us all that Aba Abdallah’s (A.S.) famous saying, “Hayhat minna zilla (Us? Humiliated?! Never, ever!)”, is immortal and triumphantly bellowed that the massive crowds in Lebanon’s Dahiyeh and all throughout the Islamicate are a solidification that the blood of Hussein (A.S.) truly prevailed over the sword of the drunkard despot Yazid (L.A.)

While India’s Modi Tweets About Imam Hussein (A.S.), His Occupation Army Brutalizes Ashoura Processions In Kashmir

by Jonathan Azaziah

Something straight out of the Twilight Zone happened last week. Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi tweeted the following at 5:23 am on September 14th, “Imam Husain (SA) sacrificed himself instead of accepting injustice. He was unwavering in his desire for peace and justice. His teachings are as relevant today as they were centuries ago.” Now… As you read that once and then read it again… Do remember that this is the same Modi who oversaw the butchery of thousands of Muslims in Gujarat; the same Modi who expanded ties with the usurping Zionist entity to unprecedented levels; the same Modi who also increased relations with the House of Saud, which is slaughtering Muslims directly in Yemen and by proxy across our region; and the same Modi who has given the green light to the wanton violence dished out against Muslims over the last several years by the Hindutvadi radicals of the BJP, VHP and RSS.
