Now 930 Days After The Zaria Massacre and Sheikh Zakzaky’s Illegal Imprisonment, Why Is The Silence Of “The Ummah” Still So Deafening?

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to everyone but most of all to our steadfast and unbreakable Nigerian brethren who to this very moment continue to fight for the freedom of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky. It has now been 930 days–read that again and after you shake your head in disgust, read it one more time–since the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and perhaps the greatest Islamic revolutionary to grace the African continent in history was locked up by the utterly atrocious, completely servile, downright pathetic regime clinging to power in Abuja. 930 days. The Sheikh’s imprisonment immediately followed the unspeakable Zaria Massacre which lasted 72 hours. December 12th to December 14th. Almost 1,000 Nigerian Shi’a slaughtered, countless others disappeared and on top of Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat being throw into a dungeon, hundreds of IMN activists were tossed in with them. Their fates remain unknown. Since being unjustly put behind bars, the Sheikh has lost vision in one eye, had a stroke–as confirmed by his iron-souled daughter Suhaila–and has been denied proper medical care by the brutal, collaborationist, US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed tyrant Muhammadu Buhari. Sure as hell seems to fit all the criteria that “The Ummah” needs to make some noise, right?

FLASHBACK: Sheikh Zakzaky Visits Tombs Of Hizbullah’s Greatest Martyrs, Salutes Hajj Imad & Jihad Mughniyeh (R.A.) and Sayyed Hadi Nasrallah (R.A.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

As we are in the midst of both the 11-year anniversary of the 2006 July War in which Hizbullah prevailed over ‘Israel’, as well as the 18-month anniversary of the Zaria Massacre that led to Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s illegal jailing by the ‘Israeli’-aligned Nigerian regime, the timing could not be more apt to flashback to July 29th, 2015 for the International Union of Resistance Conference in Beirut’s Southern Suburbs– a summit to build unity and solidarity in the Islamic world as well as devise new strategies to confront and eliminate the usurping Zionist entity. Zakzaky, the ideological Nigerian son of Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Africa’s foremost Anti-Zionist personality and one of the most critical revolutionary minds to emerge from The Ummah in centuries, was one of the premier participants in the event.

The Ummah Has Failed Nigeria’s Sheikh Zakzaky: 18 Months Into His Illegal Imprisonment And Still No Justice In Sight

by Jonathan Azaziah

What do you call a man who has brought millions of Nigerians to Islam in the last 40 years; who wages a peaceful unarmed struggle against an oppressive regime; who opposes Zionism on a regional and global level and has instilled an understanding of it deep in the consciousness of his partisans; who opposes the American ZOG; who opposes the British ZOG; who has exposed Boko Haram and other Takfiri terrorist groups as false flag black ops controlled by Western-Zionist powers; who has shredded Saudi Arabia and the other petrodollar monarchies; who has seen 6 of his sons become martyrs in the fight against Dajjal; who stands with Resistance anywhere and everywhere but whose plight is still ignored by the overwhelming majority of the so-called “Ummah”? You would call such a man SHEIKH IBRAHIM YAQOUB AL-ZAKZAKY. It has now been 18 months since Nigeria’s revolutionary of revolutionaries–and the most important Mouqawamist figure in all of Africa bar none–was unjustly thrown into the Buhari regime’s dungeons after 1,000+ followers of his were mercilessly murdered by the Nigerian army in the Zaria Massacre. The African Ashoura. 18 months of cruelty. 578 days of atrocities. 13,782 hours of injustice. Baseless charges. Worsening health. Routine torture. His wife Sayyeda Zeenat locked in the hellishness as well. His students and deputies languishing in horror near him. His Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) continuously brutalized in his absence. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE? WHERE ARE THE SCREAMS? WHERE IS THE HUMANITY. Nowhere… All of it… Is simply… Nowhere.

On This 38th Annual International Al-Quds Day, We Must Treat ‘Israel’ As A Global Problem And Strive To End It

by Jonathan Azaziah

Happy International Al-Quds Day! Long live Palestine! And something like 6 MILLION ACTUAL DEATHS–see what I did there?! :D–to that cancerous project called ‘Israel’! Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), inaugurated this blessed occasion 38 years ago to re-center Al-Quds specifically (and the whole of Palestine generally) in the hearts and minds of Muslims as a cause that is to forever be linked with Islam. One can pray and one can fast, one can pay Zakat and make Hajj, but all of it amounts to mere ritual if you are not raising your voice and enjoining good for the Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) of the Ummah who are being aggressed against daily by Earth’s Most Evil. ‘Israel’ represents the head of that darkness. Imam Khomeini’s (R.A.) successor, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, says that the illegitimate ‘Israeli’ regime has about two decades of viability–if that–to go. So as we enter into this final phase of the serpentine entity’s malignant, parasitic, artificial, accursed and criminal existence, it is integral to understand what kind of tumor that we are dealing with so it can be zeroed in on, cut out and ultimately eradicated. ‘Israel’ is a global problem. Not a regional one. And we can encapsulate this conclusion with a simple phrase: WE ARE ALL-QUDS!

With Al-Quds Day Just 24 Hours Away, Never Forget The Nigerian Shi’a Martyrs Of The 2014 Al-Quds Day Massacre

by Jonathan Azaziah

Imam Khomeini (R.A.) said that Al-Quds Day, while rooted in the struggle for the total liberation of Palestine and restoration of holy Al-Quds to Palestinian/Muslim sovereignty, is NOT an exclusive day for Jerusalem itself but a day for the Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) to rise up as one against the world’s arrogant powers. The father of the Islamic Revolution also said that Al-Quds Day is the day in which the oppressed nations stand on their own two feet and determine their destinies in defiance of empires. And apart from Palestine itself and Yemen, there are none more oppressed today than the Shi’a Muslims of Nigeria and their fearless, saintly leader Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky–the African continent’s foremost champion of the Palestinian cause.

Sheikh Zakzaky Is Now Spending His 2nd Straight Ramadan Unjustly Imprisoned… Where Are The Muslims Speaking Up For Him?

by Jonathan Azaziah

As we reach the midway point of Ramadan, we come to an exceptionally dark and painful anniversary that all Muslims, regardless of their school of thought, should be reflecting on, praying about and doing everything in their power to change: It’s now been 17 months since Nigerian revolutionary shooting star Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky was unjustly thrown into prison along with his wife Sayyeda Zeenat, a giant in her own right, and several of his companions, directly after the US-Saudi-Zionist-backed Nigerian Army of criminals massacred over 1,000 of his partisans in Zaria. It is one of the most horrifying (ongoing) injustices of our time and yet, the overall response from Muslims in the Arab-Islamic world itself as well as the Western Diaspora has been a fusion of pathetic, shameful and abysmal. The silence on the Sheikh, a saintly personality who has brought millions upon millions of Nigerians to Islam, taught them how World Zionism dominates the globe and instilled in them a fierce commitment to the Palestinian cause, continues even at this moment in our Holiest of Holy Months.

From Palestine To Lebanon, Syria To Iraq, Yemen And Beyond, Happy Mother’s Day To The Mouqawamist Mothers Of The Moustazafeen And The Martyrs

by Jonathan Azaziah

I could tell you that there is no steadfastness in the world like that of Palestinian Mothers, who now wait with bated breath as their sons maintain their hunger strike in the caverns of the ‘Israeli’ demon’s prisons; those Mothers who have endured 69 years of Nakba and 132 years of colonization at the Jewish supremacist thieves’ hands. But then you would ask me, what about the Mothers of Lebanon?

So I tell you that there is no strength on Earth like that of Lebanese Mothers, especially those of Dahiyeh, the Jnoub and the Bekaa Valley, who have prevailed over war and occupation and who have proudly and happily given their sons to the Lebanese Islamic Resistance that defends all of humanity against Zionist hegemony and Takfiri barbarity. But then you would ask me, what about the Mothers of Syria?

Alhamdulillah For The Resistance Of Nigeria’s Shi’a, Yemen, Palestine’s Hunger Strikers, Venezuela And Syria’s Aleppo

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak, Jummah Karim to all y’all wonderful people. Today, we make noise for all the Nigerian Shi’a marching for Sheikh Zakzaky’s immediate release in multiple Nigerian cities. We sound off for the MILLIONS of Yemenis on the streets of Sanaa slamming Al-Saud and letting the Wahhabi tyranny as well as its masters know that Yemen is a NATION ON ITS FEET, thus making the act of kneeling an impossibility. We let it rip for the 1,700+ Palestinian prisoners who are now on day 26 of their epic mass hunger strike. The tenacity of these Cast Iron Stomach Warriors in the face of Zion’s violent raids and psychological warfare humbles even the most selfish and arrogant among us. We bow our heads in du’a for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela which is in the throes of a vicious “regime change” conspiracy and we tip our hats to the Chavistas refusing to break before the Empire as they defend El Comandante Chavez’s legacy with their very lives. And lastly but most certainly not least, we raise our glasses of the finest Iraqi pomegranate juice to the 30 soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army and their breathtakingly beautiful brides who got married today in liberated Aleppo City, the largest wedding celebration in Syria’s economic capital in over 6 years. The Syrian will to live, rooted in more than 1,000 centuries of civilization, prevails over the barbarity of Zio-Imperialism and its Takfiri scourge once again. Moral of the story on this blessed Friday? The peoples of Mouqawamah… OUR PEOPLES… be they Arab or Latino, Muslim or Christian, shall not relent in their struggles, giving us hope, oh so precious hope, that a better world, one without Jewish-Zionist hegemony, is not merely possible but inevitable. And for that, we simply say… Alhamdulillah.

On Sheikh Zakzaky’s 66th Birthday, He Remains Unjustly Imprisoned For The 17th Month In A Row

by Jonathan Azaziah

Never before have the words “Happy Birthday!” ever been filled with so much despondency and immeasurable sadness. For the 15th of Sha’ban is not only Imam al-Mahdi’s (A.S.) birthday but that of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky of Nigeria. The revolutionary Shi’a cleric, who has been a defender of Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Iran and Bahrain in the face of Zionism and Takfirism, is 66 today and is spending what should be a most wonderful and electric occasion in the monstrous Nigerian regime’s dungeons for the 17th month in a row. Bogus charges. No evidence. A decision from Nigeria’s Federal High Court that the Sheikh and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat be released immediately, but an intransigent tyrant in the pay of Saudi Arabia, ‘Israel’ and the US ZOG so subservient that he defies his own nation’s legal bodies and laws in favor of the Zio-Imperialist project. An “Ummah” that is as silent on Zakzaky’s plight at this very moment as it was when the Zaria Massacre was unleashed by the murderous Zionist-trained Nigerian army on December 12th, 2015. We now stand at 517 days that the Sheikh, Africa’s foremost Mouqawamist personality, has been unjustly locked away. How much longer is this nightmare going to continue you ask? As long as Muslims and those who consider themselves seekers of truth and fighters of injustice keep their eyes and mouths closed. I’d call it egregious but these are the very same “Islamic activists” and “human rights” groups who haven’t come across a single lie against Syria and Yemen that they didn’t gleefully peddle on Empire Judaica’s behalf, so such outrage won’t be feigned here.

Islamic Movement of Nigeria Plans Huge March To Mark 500 Days Of Zakzaky’s Illegal Imprisonment

by Jonathan Azaziah

Word just came in from a very dear brother of mine in Sokoto that the blessed people of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) will be marching today with their Sunni, Sufi and Christian allies to mark 500 days since Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky was unjustly thrown into prison by the cruel and torturous Buhari regime. There won’t be any Zionist media coverage. There won’t be any little trendy hashtags put out by the “Palestine Solidarity Movement”–which despicably ignores the plight of the Sheikh to this day EVEN THOUGH he is the foremost champion of the Palestinian cause on the African continent. The “Muslim” Brotherhood will be mum. And the “human rights” organizations won’t make a peep because supporting the oppressed Shi’a of Nigeria isn’t in line with any US-‘Israeli’ stratagem. But those of us with a heart, a soul and a conscience don’t take leads from these devils or hypocrites ANYWAY so prayers for our Nigerian brethren are absolutely in order and then some. Because the murderous tyrant in Abuja has shown a tremendously brutal propensity towards massacring the peaceful members of the IMN on important occasions. Al-Quds Day ’14 comes to mind. The Zaria Massacre of ’15. The Kano City slaughter of ’16. Continue reading Islamic Movement of Nigeria Plans Huge March To Mark 500 Days Of Zakzaky’s Illegal Imprisonment
