Happy Resistance and Liberation Day 2017: There Would Be No Iraq If It Wasn’t For Hizbullah

by Jonathan Azaziah

One could write for days and for weeks, for months and for years about Hizbullah’s legendary triumph on this day 17 years ago. Lebanon was liberated from a 22-year Zionist occupation and for the first time in the history of the “Arab-‘Israeli’ conflict”, the usurping Jewish terrorists were not merely defeated but humiliated on such a grandiose scale after all the damage and casualties the Lebanese Islamic Resistance had inflicted on them, that they fled in the middle of the night like the cockroaches and rats they are. The Party killed the “Greater ‘Israel'” scheme dead in its tracks, inspired the Second Intifada in Occupied Palestine that ultimately led to the liberation of Gaza–which Hizbullah was hugely involved in–and gave hope to hundreds of millions of Muslims and Moustazafeen worldwide.

We Remember Rachel Corrie, An Eternal Soldier Of The Intifada, 14 Years To The Day That ‘Israel’ Murdered Her

by Jonathan Azaziah

Some souls are simply destined to be heroes, you know? The kinds of folks who, from very early on in their lives, have nothing on their minds but coming to the aid of their fellow humans even if it means losing the air in their own lungs in the process. Rachel Corrie was such a being. And it was on this day 14 years ago that she was murdered in cold blood by the Jewish supremacist entity. The Second Intifada was raging in Gaza as Palestinian Resistance forces heavily engaged settlers and occupation soldiers in a steadfast effort to liberate the Strip. Typically however, because fighting moujahideen face-to-face is something that the ‘Israeli’ enemy’s puny army has always failed to do, IOF decided to target civilians in an effort to convince Mouqawamah fighters from moving forward with their righteous mission. Disgustingly, ‘Israel’ rolled out its Caterpillar D-9 military bulldozers and began eviscerating homes in the strategic southern Gaza city of Rafah. And there stood Rachel Corrie.

RIP Tom Hurndall, A Champion Of Palestine Who Died Because Of ‘Israel’ 13 Years Ago Today

by Jonathan Azaziah

Rest in peace, power and purity to Thomas “Tom” Hurndall, a genuine friend of the Palestinian cause and beloved champion of the Moustazafeen, who joined the ancestors on this day 13 years ago. On April 11th, 2003, in the midst of the Second Intifada in the Gaza Strip’s Rafah area, Tom was taking Palestinian children in his arms to protect them from ‘Israeli’ occupation forces’ artillery and bombardments. He escorted many to safety. But in doing so, he also put himself in the line of fire and a murderous, usurping Jewish sniper shot him in the head. Tom remained in a vegetative state for over 9 months before passing away on January 13, 2004. We could speak on the cowardice of the ‘Israeli’ enemy and its inability to stand face-to-face and eye-to-eye with the indigenous and their international allies who reject its Jewish supremacist claims and regional hegemony; we could speak of its anti-Gentile hatred and its insatiable bloodlust as well. But it would better serve the memory of Mr. Hurndall and the Palestinians he gave his life defending to instead speak of his selfless commitment to Palestine’s liberation; his bravery in the face of his monstrous disease known as ‘Israel’; and the sacrifice he made for a land that wasn’t his but a people who he considered his brothers in humanity. The humble hero Thomas Hurndall was the essence of what the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) was supposed to be and for a while, truly was.
