On This 3rd Anniversary Of Maaloula’s Liberation, Never Forget Hizbullah’s Role In Freeing The Ancient Christian City

by Jonathan Azaziah

April 14th, 2014 is a day that should be celebrated by anyone and everyone in the world who considers himself or herself a follower and student of Jesus Christ (A.S.) Because it was on this day 3 years ago that the Syrian Arab Army, flanked by moujahideen from the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah on every side, liberated ancient Maaloula, the oldest continuously inhabited Christian town in the world and one of the only places left on the face of the planet where Christ’s (A.S.) native tongue of Aramaic is still spoken. It was Hizbullah in fact which spearheaded the operation under the direction of martyred Commanders and founding members of the Mouqawamah Sayyed Zulfiqar Hajj Moustafa Badreddine and Hajj Ali “Alaa Bosnia” Fayyad. The liberators of Lebanon sacrificed several fighters in the battle and after Al-Qaeda was humiliated and driven from this picturesque, archaic town in the strategic Qalamoun Mountains, they stayed behind and helped Maaloula’s residents rebuild their homes and churches. This is why those who travel through Maaloula today find Hizbullah’s yellow banner draped alongside crosses, portraits of Maryam (A.S.) and the Syrian Arab Republic’s flag. Muslim-Christian unity and Co-Resistance in its most gorgeous form.

Two Years Since ‘Israel’ Assassinated The Quneitra Seven And Hizbullah Still Blazes As Fierce As A Phoenix

by Jonathan Azaziah

On January 18th, 2015, ‘Israeli’ warplanes illegally breached Syrian airspace and fired missiles at a two-car convoy traveling along the roads of Mazraat Amal in Quneitra. In the vehicles were IRGC Brigadier General Muhammad Ali Allahdadi and Hizbullah moujahideen Muhammad “Abou Issa” Issa, Jihad “Jawad” Mughniyeh, “Sayyed Abbas” Hijazi, “Daniel” Ghazi Ali Dawi, “Kazem” Abou al-Hasan and “Ihab” Ali Hassan Ibrahim. Much of the focus was (and remains) on Jihad Mughniyeh because he was a rising star in the Lebanese Islamic Resistance, the son of martyred Hizbullah architect Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and the nephew of martyred Hizbullah giants Fouad and Jihad (of whom he was named after), as well as the Iranian general who had for years been integral to the Resistance Axis project by keeping the Mouqawamah movements in both Lebanon and occupied Palestine flush with weapons.

Bashar and Asma al-Assad Visit Saidnaya Monastery For Christmas, Reaffirming Their Status As Protectors Of Syria’s Pluralism

by Jonathan Azaziah

Gotta love Bashar and Asma al-Assad. The Syrian Arab Republic’s President and First Lady, as well as their daughter Zein and two sons Karim and Hafez, spent Christmas Day at Our Lady of Saidnaya Monastery in the ancient Aramaic-speaking town of Saidnaya, which rests on the slopes of the rugged Qalamoun Mountains that were liberated from Takfiri terrorist occupation by Hizbullah and the Syrian Arab Army last Spring. The Assads visited with the nuns and orphans of the Monastery and spent the day eating, laughing, snapping photos, unwrapping gifts and just generally enjoying the holy occasion. “God bless you!” is what Bashar and Asma were hit with when they first entered the Monastery, and as they made their way down into the courtyard where they were adorably mobbed by loving children, they were also told by the nuns, “Now we are truly feeling the holiday spirit!” ‘Twas one of those moments in which you realize that these individuals, Dr. Assad and First Lady Asma, truly are FOR the people, OF the people and BY the people. This is the kind of popular support that cannot be bought, nor staged, nor forced. One simply has it or one does not. Clearly the Assads ABSOLUTELY have it.
