In Iraq’s Wartorn, Poverty-Stricken Najaf, An Iraqi Santa Claus Brings Joy To Children On Christmas

by Jonathan Azaziah

War, poverty and unhappiness have been staples of the Iraqi experience for the last five decades give or take. And in the holy city of Najaf, over the last thirteen years since the Anglo-Zionist invasion, these three dark forces (war, poverty and unhappiness) have been especially prevalent. What the US regime did to Najaf in August 2004, with heavy bombers, helicopter gunships, tanks and other armored vehicles, was unspeakable. Nearly the entirety of the Old City was reduced to ruins. Tens of thousands of Iraqis were murdered and wounded. Infrastructures, including running water and electricity, completely collapsed. These atrocities have led to a meteoric rise in PTSD in all of Najaf’s residents, children particularly. Now throw in the corrupt regime in Baghdad which has done NOTHING to alleviate any of the socio-economic woes and what you have is a situation immersed in misery truly beyond human comprehension. But despite all of this, Najaf and its people still find a way to live. Enter a man by the name of Moustafa al-Sudani.

“Long Live Syria III (Our Backbone)”, 3rd Single Off “Eternally Husseini”, Is Officially Out!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

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.

Defying The US ZOG and Takfiri Tyrant Erdogan, Hashd al-Shaabi Begins Fight For Tal Afar

by Jonathan Azaziah

Suck wind Erdogan! For months and months, the Mad Takfiri Tyrant of Turkey has told the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU/Hashd al-Shaabi) to stay away from Mosul and its surrounding regions, declaring to them as “sultan” of the imaginary “New Ottoman Empire” that they aren’t welcome in Mosul and that once it is liberated, it will only remain open to Sunni Arabs, Sunni Turkmen and Sunni Kurds. But with dozens of Assyrian Christian villages liberated by the Shi’a-led Hashd al-Shaabi already, the question has to be asked: How’s that working out for you Recep The Receptacle?! And now, today, since the operation that the PMU has been laying the groundwork for since the launch of the Mosul operation has officially begun, i.e. the fight for Tal Afar, ISIS’s central supply route to Syria, let us ask two follow-up questions: How you like THEM apples Recep The Reprehensible? You mad that your precious Daeshis are getting smashed by roaring, ferocious Iraqi lions? Continue reading Defying The US ZOG and Takfiri Tyrant Erdogan, Hashd al-Shaabi Begins Fight For Tal Afar
