“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.

Iraq: Daesh Murders Shi’a Pilgrims With Ambulance Bombs Today As US Air Strikes In Mosul Keep Killing Civilians

by Jonathan Azaziah

The perversions inflicted on Iraq by Daesh never cease to horrify, do they? Earlier on today, suicide bombers from the Zionist-US-GCC-created Takfiri terrorist group rammed ambulances– vehicles normally used to save lives–into the city entrance of Tikrit as well as a car park in the holy city of Samarra, slaughtering at least 31 innocents and wounding dozens more. The martyrs, including ten Iranians, were Shi’a pilgrims on their way to the shrine of the eleventh Shi’a Imam, Hassan al-Askari (A.S.), as preparations are underway for Arbaeen, the ceremony held to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period over the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (A.S.), not to mention the largest religious gathering in the world. Even as ISIS is being attacked from every side in Mosul, with the Iraqi army advancing on the eastern and western flanks of Iraq’s second city and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) clearing out the terrorist poison on the outskirts and in the strategic town of Tal Afar, the MossadDaeshis still manage to find time to torment civilians outside of the “conflict zone”–like their ‘Israeli’ masters across every inch of Palestine and their Saudi financiers in Yemen, it’s just what they’re programmed to do.

RIP Iraqi Moujahid Hussnayn al-Sa’adi: Nubl And Al-Zahra Will Never Forget Your Heroic Sacrifice

by Jonathan Azaziah

This is the story of martyred Iraqi moujahid Hussnayn al-Sa’adi of Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba, may he rest in power and in dignity and be appreciated by the Angels (A.S.) until the end of time. He was martyred in Syria on February 2nd, 2015 and it is a story that has never been told before up until now. The reason for writing it at this very moment in time is rather simplistic: We are in the midst of the first 10 days of the Muharram, that painful time when we relive the suffering of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, as well as reflect on how the sacrifices made on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.) affect us all today when thrown against the backdrop of the current geopolitical landscape. So what better time to recount the life of a Shahid as Husseini as Hussnayn al-Saadi than this one?! Born in Kufa and raised in Karbala, Hussnayn would begin his life as a moujahid at the tender age of 18 when the American-Zionist aggression was launched against Iraq. He joined the ranks of the Mahdi Army before heading towards Asa’ib Ahlul Haq and was known for his fiery demeanor, love of Palestine and passion for the Holy Qur’an, attributes which he put to good use on the battlefield, hyping up his fellow fighters in the confrontation against the invaders. Hussnayn would partake in liberating Basra from US-British occupation as well as several key battles in and around Baghdad.

Funeral held for Iranian general martyred in Iraq

The funeral procession for General Hamid Taqavi, a senior IRGC figure killed in the Iraqi city of Samarrah during an advisory mission against terrorist groups, was held in Tehran on Monday morning.

 A one-time commander during the 8-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s, General Taqavi lost his life in Samarrah while defending the shrine of Imam al-Askari (pbuh) through his performance of “an advisory mission in the fight against the Takfiri and the ISIL (the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) terrorists,” the Public Relations Department of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) stated on Sunday.
