Millions of Pilgrims Mark Arbaeen In Karbala, Defying Daesh, ‘Israel’, the US ZOG and Saudi Arabia

by Jonathan Azaziah

Feast your eyes on a sight–beautiful, dazzling, shimmering Iraq–that can only be described as breathtaking. Over 20 million pilgrims from 60 different countries entered the holy Iraqi city of Karbala to mark Arbaeen today, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) martyrdom. It is not only we Shi’a who are marching and demonstrating on these santicified sands to celebrate the sacrifice, the heroism, the steadfastness and the RESISTANCE of Aba Abdallah (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, martyred at the hands of the maniacal tyrant Yazid (L.A.) on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians, Shabakis, Ezadis, Zoroastrians and even some Hindus too. Regardless of Islamic school of thought or faith, the people of spirituality, dignity and anti-oppression stand as one Husseini unit on Arbaeen because the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) is a symbol of defiance and rejection of despotism for all of humankind.

Six Nigerian States Have Effectively Banned Shi’a Islam: Ring The Alarm And Raise Your Voice Against This Injustice

by Jonathan Azaziah

I don’t think people fully comprehend just how horrific the plight of the Nigerian Shi’a really is. Last month (October 6th to be exact), Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State–of which Zaria, the birthplace of Nigeria’s Shi’a community, is a major city–issued an order declaring the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), founded by unjustly imprisoned revolutionary Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, an “unlawful society whose activities are dangerous to the security and good governance of the state.” The order, using language identical to that of the murderous Zionist entity, referred to last December’s massacre of IMN members in Zaria, a killing spree tantamount to genocide, as “regrettable”. Membership in the IMN now carries a prison sentence of up to 7 years. And, to make matters worse, the ban has already become law in six other Nigerian states. Look at the carefully chosen, utterly malicious language that Buhari’s lackey uses – not group, organization or movement, but “society”. Why? I’ll tell you!

Now 10 Months Since Zaria Massacre And Arrest Of Zakzaky, Brutal Oppression Of Nigeria Shi’a Continues

by Jonathan Azaziah

Between December 12th and December 14th of 2015, the Nigerian army carried out one of the most barbaric atrocities in recent memory as it shot, bulldozed, beat and maimed hundreds (and possibly thousands) of Nigerian Shi’a to death at the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah in Zaria. Thousands of others were wounded and at least 705 innocents on top of that have been disappeared. The slaughter concluded with Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, Africa’s most important revolutionary, being unjustly imprisoned alongside his wife and several of his companions. Fast forward 10 months later, and not only are the Sheikh and his dearest ones still imprisoned, still tortured and still in terrible health as a result of these aggressions, but the Nigerian army– an institution of oppression backed, armed, trained and financed by the American regime, the usurping Zionist entity and the Saudi Kingdom of Darkness–is at it again, carrying out yet another massacre of Nigerian Shi’a as they were mourning for Imam Hussein (A.S.) At least 14 unarmed demonstrators, including several women, were shot dead at Ashoura processions in Funtua and Kaduna on Youm al-Ashoura.

Deviant, Disturbing Innovations Of Tatbir and Zanjeer Are Promoted By Zionist Media To Spread Shiaphobia

by Jonathan Azaziah

To all my non-Shi’a Muslim brothers and sisters as well as my non-Muslim comrades: DO NOT FOLLOW THE SHAMEFUL ZIONIST MEDIA AND THE EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL ALTERNATIVE MEDIA (here’s looking at your despicable “reportage” RT and Sputnik) ABOUT WHAT SHI’A MUSLIMS DO ON ASHOURA. The bloody pictures that are being promoted across the spectrum of extremist Shi’a disgustingly self-flagellating and cutting their children DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT represent Islam in any way, shape or form, whether the Shi’a school of thought or otherwise. These barbaric practices, known as Tatbir and Zanjeer, are alien to Islam and have been forbidden by just about major Shi’a authority on the planet, including (but not limited to) Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari and others.

Eid al-Ghadeer Mubarak To The Suffering But Steadfast Syrian Shi’a Of Al-Foua’a And Kefraya

by Jonathan Azaziah

Eid al-Ghadeer Mubarak to all the lovers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.), no matter if you are Shi’a, Sunnis, any other Islamic school of thought, or even non-Muslims who simply have a heartfelt adoration for Imam Ali (A.S.) and his grace, intelligence, wisdom, eloquence, military genius, strength, poetic prowess, diplomatic skill, knowledge, lionheartedness and all-around lofty aura. And a special Eid al-Ghadeer Mubarak goes out to the suffering Syrian Shi’a of Al-Foua’a and Kefraya, two villages in Idleb’s outskirts that have been barbarically besieged by the Takfiri terrorist maniacs–chiefly Jabhat al-Nusra and “moderate” Ahrar al-Sham–since March 2015. These people, whose dauntlessness is of an unparalleled status, are enduring starvation, malnourishment, the rapid spread of too many infectious diseases to count, medicine shortages and near-daily shellings with all sorts of Western-provided weaponry. All of which is happening with ZERO mainstream media coverage and very little alternative press reportage either.

The martyr count is in the hundreds since the blockade began and the wounded count is in the thousands. Children, including infants, are among the dead and the injured. And if it wasn’t for the Hizbullah-trained NDF fighters from among the people and the handful of moujahideen from Iraq’s Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba defending the twin towns, the Takfiris would have already descended upon them and, in their rabid anti-Shi’a bloodthirstiness, carried out a genocide. Imam Ali (A.S.) once said “Anyone who loves we Ahlul Bayt must be ready to face a life of hardship.” Our Mawla (master) must have been talking about Al-Foua’a and Kefraya because their struggle embodies this saying to a frightening letter.

ISIS Murdered More Iraqi Shi’a Today, But We Won’t Abandon Imam Kazim (A.S.)

by Jonathan Azaziah

Pain in the homeland never stops. Iraq has now had its third day in a row with a massive car bombing, this time a triple attack hitting three separate locations across Baghdad. Casualty count is at least 18 martyrs and over 45 wounded, the majority of the victims once again being Iraqi Shi’a pilgrims marching to commemorate Imam Moussa al-Kazim’s (A.S.) martyrdom in 799 AD. ISIS and its Zionist-Saudi controllers hate the Shi’a so much that even when they are on their last legs and are being pushed back on every front in Iraq–except wherever the American ZOG and the ‘Israeli’-controlled Kurdish forces are, the Takfiris are protected and thus proliferate in those areas–and should, strategically speaking, find a way to counteract their losses, they find ways to slip through security cracks and kill us because spilling our blood is what fuels them.
