The United Snakes of IsraHELL’s war on African-Americans and Islam continued in utterly wretched and absolutely vile fashion tonight as it was confirmed that Marzieh Hashemi, a journalist with the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Press TV, was detained at St. Louis Lambert International Airport in St. Louis, Missouri by the FBI this past Sunday. She has since been transferred to a detention facility in Washington DC. No charges have been filed against her and to add insult to injury, the Feds are also denying any information to her family as to why she was illegally nicked in the first place. She had traveled to America to visit her sick brother and other family members. Most despicably of all, she was shackled as if she was some sort of a murderer destined for a maximum security stint and her hijab was ripped off. The bag of swill that is the FBI even snapped mugshots of her once she arrived to the prison while her hair was still uncovered. And putting the cherry on top of the imperialist sundae, when they finally offered her some food, it was swine. She hasn’t had anything to eat but a small bag of crackers in the last 48 hours. Beyond unjust, the FBI’s actions — true to its historical behavior and raison d’être — are anti-Black and wildly Islamophobic.

Not much longer now, y’all! “Eternally Husseini” is just 16 days away!
But I do not write to you today from the apex of triumph and defiance that informs much of our identity as Shi’a. Instead, I write to you from the other side of the spectrum which is also very much a part of our being as the soldiers of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.): Agony, tragedy and heartbreak–all felt with unimaginable intensity by Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the Karbala 72 on Ashoura. For today is the 4th anniversary of the martyrdom of Malcolm Latif Shabazz (R.A.), the grandson of our eternal revolutionary teacher Hajj Malik el-Shabazz aka Malcolm X (R.A.) Young Malcolm was murdered under exceptionally murky circumstances in Mexico City, where he had traveled to express solidarity with a deported labor organizer as well as to build a broad coalition of strugglers against Zio-Imperialism, from the oppressed Mexican people to oppressed Muslims in the US. No such bridges were constructed however because the sole male heir of Malcolm X was beaten to death outside a bar, of all places. The official story shall not be repeated here because it shall not be dignified with a retort. In the same vein, the Zionist media’s coverage of Young Malcolm’s martyrdom was so insanely execrable, deliberately deceptive and overtly racist, with particular malice towards his blessed family, that it too shall not even be dignified herein.

Humanity died on this day 52 years ago, when Hajj Malik el-Shabazz (R.A.), better known to the world as Malcolm X, was gunned down in the Audubon Ballroom of Washington Heights. We are told by the Zionist-dominated mainstream media that the Nation of Islam killed him but we know better. Traitors within the NOI were indeed the triggermen but they weren’t the orchestrators. That distinction goes to the COINTELPRO tandem of the FBI and the Anti-Defamation League Of B’nai B’rith (ADL), which were both conducting heavy surveillance on Malcolm up until the day of his martyrdom and which both wanted the elimination of this giant at all costs because of his stances on Anti-Zionism, Anti-Imperialism and Black Independence.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Growing up in the Marcy Projects of Brooklyn, New York’s notorious Bedford-Stuyvesant, and having more than a few run-ins with the NYPD myself, including run-ins that ended in physical abuse, intimidation and my homies’ innocent blood being shed, I can say categorically that there wasn’t a damn thing “accidental” about this shooting, regardless of the pigs’ pathetic spin. The NYPD is a historically bigoted institution that has been murdering, maiming, beating, raping, wrongfully arresting and harassing Men and Women of Color since time immemorial. There’s nothing new here. What is not being reported however is that since 9/11, police militarization has gone through the roof, making a brutal institution like the NYPD even more ruthless than it already is. And at the heart of this matter is the usurping Zionist entity. The ties between IOF and NYPD now run so deep, that the latter opened up a branch in occupied Palestine. New York City’s cops have been trained by the illegitimate Jewish gangster “state” since 2002, and one only needs to look at the number of increased racist incidents against Blacks, Latinos and particularly Arabs and Muslims to see the direct correlation between the two happenings. This process of “Israelification” solidifies World Zionism’s stranglehold over Amerikkka and reinforces the need to establish community-based, self-defense organizations to take control of our neighborhoods as a means of protecting ourselves from these trigger-happy, Zionized maniacs who are nothing less than Blue Bacon. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Zionized NYPD Rookie Shoots Unarmed Black Man Dead In BK’s Pink Houses

In 1964, as Martin Luther King was still rising in stature as leader of the remarkably successful Civil Rights Movement, J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI agents sent King an astounding letter—which they hoped King would think was from an unidentified member of the public—urging the leader to kill himself or risk having his extramarital sexual wanderings released to the public.
While the existence of the letter has been known for some time, Yale history professor Beverly Gage stumbled upon an unredacted version of the letter while researching a book on Hoover. She writes about its shocking contents in today’s New York Times, calling the so-called “suicide letter” the “most notorious and embarrassing example of Hoover’s F.B.I. run amok.” Continue reading Shocking Find: Yale Prof Unearths Notorious Letter Hoover’s FBI Sent to MLK, Urging Him to Kill Himself

After the death a few weeks ago of the legendary editor of the Washington Post, Ben Bradlee, most obituaries celebrated his willingness to go after Richard Nixon. Charles Pierce at Esquire writes that Bradlee “rode the Watergate story when nobody else wanted it. It’s hard now even to imagine how very far out on the limb Bradlee went on that story.” But Pierce is largely alone in also noting that the Post under Bradlee “ultimately took a dive on Iran-Contra.” Bradlee himself described what he called a “return to deference” on the part of the press corps that took place under Ronald Reagan, saying that his colleagues were responding to a perceived public fatigue with journalists “trying to make a Watergate out of everything.” “We did ease off,” he said.

Palestinian activist and torture survivor Rasmea Odeh was found guilty of an immigration violation on Monday by a U.S. federal jury in Detroit, following what her supporters say was an unjust trial for trumped up charges aimed at crushing political movements.
“Make no mistake. Rasmea came under attack by the U.S. government because she is Palestinian and because for decades she has organized for Palestinian liberation and self-determination, the Right of Return, and an end to U.S. funding of Israeli occupation,” reads a statement from the Rasmea Defense Committee issued immediately following the verdict.
Presiding Judge Gershwin Drain revoked the 67-year-old’s bond, and Odeh was immediately taken into custody. She will remain incarcerated until her sentencing hearing. Continue reading Palestinian Activist Rasmea Odeh Found Guilty in ‘Travesty of Justice’

Huntsville City Schools (HCS) paid a former Federal Bureau of Investigations agent $157,000 to direct security last year, but critics contend that the system he implemented is designed to monitor the social media activity of black students, according to AL.com.
Chris McRae, the agent in question, was brought in to oversee the Students Against Fear (SAFe) program, which works by allowing students and teachers to provide anonymous tips to security personnel, who then scour social media sites like Facebook to determine the credibility of the threat.
