Only Three Words Needed On the 69th Nakba Day: Death To ‘Israel’

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

After 69 years of Nakba in Palestine; after 69 years of destruction, from the 531 villages, towns and cities eviscerated during the Zionist terror gangs’ Plan D to the ongoing IOF demolitions of homes and infrastructures in the West Bank and sacred Al-Quds; after 69 years of mass murder, from the 10,000 martyrs in 1947-1948 to the ritualistic slaughter of over 2,200 Palestinians including more than 500 children in Operation Mighty Cliff (Protective Edge); after 69 years of environmental ruination that didn’t make the “desert bloom” but rather made the God-blessed, green paradise that Palestine was into an industrialized nightmare, from the uprooting, burning and destroying of olive trees, to the poisoning of wells, to the drying up of bodies of water, to the contamination of soil and air from the illegal nuclear weapons program in Dimona; after 69 years of devilish destabilization through the arming and backing of ethno-sectarian proxies, from the Kurdish Barzani mafia in Iraq in the 1950s, to the Phalangists in Lebanon during the Zionist-engineered Lebanese “Civil” War, to the Takfiri terrorists wreaking havoc across our region today; after 69 years of ethnic cleansing and expansionism that have turned 7.5 million Palestinians into refugees; after 69 years of hateful Jewish supremacist aggression against the sanctities of Islam and Christianity; after 69 years of Zionism manifesting as a “state”, and after 133 some odd years of Jewish colonization in the Holy Land, there are only three words that properly encapsulate our pain, our sadness and our rage: DEATH TO ‘ISRAEL’.

Sayyed Nasrallah At His Best: Destroys Al-Saud For Its Attack On Imam al-Mahdi (A.S.) and Tells ‘Israel’ That No Fence Will Stop Hizbullah From Entering Palestine

by Jonathan Azaziah

And the final word, not to mention the best word, goes to his Eminence, our guide and our pride, the liberator of Lebanon, the leader of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance and the chief representative of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) legacy in our age, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah! In his latest speech 48 hours ago, Hizbullah’s Secretary-General took to task Saudi Arabia’s “Crown Prince” Mohammad Bin Salman in a way that only Nasrallah himself could and delivered what can solely be described as a megaton-knockout blow on the matter of Imam al-Mahdi (A.S.): “The advent of Al-Mahdi is not conjecture but an absolute fact. It is an inevitability. He will emerge in the holy city of Mecca and the people of the Arabian Peninsula will pledge allegiance to him and follow him. When he arrives, there isn’t any unjust king or tyrant who will survive. That day is coming and neither you o’ Saud, nor your children, nor your fathers, nor your grandfathers can change this Divinely-mandated destiny.” BANG! Sayyed Abou Hadi went on to say, in a full-on reinforcement of just how important Islamic unity is to the Resistance Axis, that there is no dispute among Sunnis or Shi’a about how the prophesied reign of Imam al-Qa’im (A.S.)–regardless of the difference in opinion of some whether his birth happened or is set to come–will eradicate oppression and topple tyranny. Typically, as the whole “Islamic” world sat on its hands, choked and silenced by Khaleeji petro-cash, while Al-Saud insulted a core belief held by just about the entirety of the Ummah, it was none other than Nasrallah who once more came to our rescue.

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.

A Special Stab At Saudi Arabia On Imam al-Mahdi’s (A.S.) Birthday Today

by Jonathan Azaziah

Happy birthday to the Imam Of The Age (A.S.)! Imam al-Zaman, Imam al-Asr, Imam al-Qa’im, Imam al-Mahdi (A.S.)! Just as the ancient soils of Iraq and Syria are perfectly fertile for the planting of crops needed to nourish our bodies, it is the duty of every Muslim to make the proverbial earth fertile for the planting of revolutionary seeds needed to nourish The Ummah so we can expedite the return of our Imam (A.S.)! As Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei reminds us of constantly, fighting oppression and getting hidden truths out to the masses are obligatory acts that cannot be separated from our other duties as Muslims. On that note, as Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (R.A.) famously put forth, fighting the usurping Zionist entity, in this day and time, is as important as prayers and fasting, if not more so. Simply put, being a Muslim in this epoch, which is currently governed by the Jewish-Zionist system of Dajjal, is not complete unless we are actively resisting those who are trying to destroy our religion and our people, i.e. the Empire of Zion and its minions. At the center of our struggle is the remembrance that every act of Mouqawamah, every idol torn down, every evil and criminal power structure brought to light, every instance in which we uplift the people of the Global South and ALL THOSE who are suffering, is a step closer to the Imam’s (A.S.) return and implementation of triumphant justice on Earth.

While Two-Faced “Arab” Regimes Are Silent, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Salutes & Declares Hizbullah’s Solidarity With Palestine’s Heroic Hunger Strikers

by Jonathan Azaziah

Labaykah Ya Nasrallah! Unlike fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, uncles and aunts, cousins and siblings, children and friends, all of whom may disappoint us at one point or another in our complicated lives, Sayyed Abou Hadi never lets us down. And I do mean NEVER. Like lions who are biologically inclined to defend their prides, like dolphins who protect their pods against any intruder, like angels who were designed to uphold the heavens and record the deeds of creation, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is simply MEANT to always tell the unfiltered truth, unequivocally stand for what’s right and unrelentingly raise his blessed fist against oppression. That’s just what he does. That’s what he was PUT HERE for. Today is no different either. While two-faced “Arab” regimes and the worthless, servile “Arab” League are feloniously silent on the the plight of Palestine’s 1,600 hunger striking prisoners, the Secretary-General of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance saluted the Falasteeni Empty-Stomach Revolutionaries and declared Hizbullah’s unequivocal solidarity with their struggle. He rhetorically wondered aloud where these so-called “defenders of Arabism”, led by Al-Saud, had gone… Why had they vanished into thin air when Palestine, our compass, needs us most… Why?! Because they’re too busy normalizing with the Zionist cancer, that’s why!! The Sayyed also said that the usurping Zionist entity was deathly mistaken if it thought by simply waiting the Palestinian hunger strikers out that they’d abandon their courageous undertaking. Victory or martyrdom is their goal and the Mouqawamah stands with them to that end.

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

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.

Israeli prison service starts to punish hunger-strikers

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – The Israeli prison service has started serious punitive procedures against Palestinian prisoners who recently started a hunger strike in solidarity with cellmates held in solitary confinement.

Issa Qaraqe, a former minister of prisoners affairs and currently chairman of the prisoners affairs committee, told Ma’an Sunday that some hunger-strikers were sent to wards of criminal prisoners, some were ordered to pay fines, others were deprived of family visits and still others of buying from the prison cantina for two months.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society said in a statement that more than 30 prisoners have recently joined 70 others who started a hunger strike seven days ago. The move was to exert pressure on the Israeli prison service to end the solitary confinement of Nahar al-Saadi. Continue reading Israeli prison service starts to punish hunger-strikers

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Seventy prisoners held in Israeli jails on Tuesday launched hunger strike action in protest against Israel’s policy of solitary confinement, a prisoners’ group said.

The protest action was launched in solidarity with detainees being held in solitary confinement, some of whom had already gone on hunger strike to protest the policy. Continue reading 70 Palestinian prisoners launch hunger strike action
