IRGC Commander: Chain of Resistance Stretching Across Region

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The following statement from the IRGC’s lieutenant commander, while obviously lacking in detail, is still extraordinarily stunning and seems to confirm Mouqawamah Music’s analysis from October, “The Long Arm of the Resistance: From Yemen to Saudi and Back Again”, which theorized, using strong evidence, that Hizbullah and the IRGC are aiding the Houthis — aka Ansarullah — in Yemen against the US-“Israeli”-Saudi-backed regime in Sanaa. Brigadier General Salami’s words shouldn’t be seen as braggadocio but rather as a warning to the Judaic Power Configuration and its regional lackeys that despite their best efforts to subjugate, undermine and stifle mouqawamah, the Resistance Axis is not to be messed with as it has only prospered, increased steadfastness and added additional members. Inspiring doesn’t really seem to cut it… With the new year upon us, and a year of great victories but great sadness and terrible losses finally behind us, a much more appropriate word would be hopeful. Iran, Hizbullah, Syria and the Houthis are like a life-raft of hope and light in a pessimistic world drowning in darkness; may 2015 bring us more hope, exponentially, and may the “chain of resistance” spoken of by the IRGC second-in-command stretch out across the globe until World Zionism is choked into breathlessness. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)

Treasury Department Neocons and Zionists play dangerous games in Yemen

by Wayne Madsen, The Wayne Madsen Report

David Cohen, the Under Secretary of Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, and his band of neocon Zionists who randomly freeze accounts and bring sanctions against foreign officials and businessmen who do not comport with neocon diktats have now targeted Yemeni leaders. Cohen has systematically brought sanctions against any leaders who pose a threat to Zionist designs, whether they are leaders of Yemen who reject a Zionist plan conceived by former U.S. ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein to carve up Yemen into six provinces dominated by a pro-U.S. government, Hungarian anti-European Union nationalist politicians, or Russian-speaking leaders of Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

The emergent Egyptian-Gulf alliance: Libya and Yemen in the crosshairs

by Ahmad Jamaleddine, Al-Akhbar English

It seems clear that the ties between Egypt and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), with the exception of Qatar, are evolving dramatically in economic and military matters, at a time when the unrest in Yemen and Egyptian concerns over the continued chaos in Libya are leading to a profound military cooperation between the two sides.

Cairo – An Associated Press report published earlier this week, quoting Egyptian and Gulf officials, said that Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait were discussing the creation of a military pact to take on extremists in the region, particularly in Libya and Yemen, with the possibility of creating a joint force to intervene around the Middle East. The report said this alliance would operate separately from the anti-ISIS coalition led by the United States. Continue reading The emergent Egyptian-Gulf alliance: Libya and Yemen in the crosshairs

On Which Side Shall You Stand When The Skies Rain Blood? (Ya Hussein Is…)

by Madd Cold (Jonathan Azaziah, Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

When a tyrant puts his sword to the oppressed…

Will you watch and cower, your courage proper soured and your nerves got devoured at the thought of a man being tortured in duress…

Or will you raise your voice and tell him to stop it at once…

You make peace with your Creator because you made your choice and yelled at the top of your lungs…

That you won’t be silent as injustice unfolds…

And you tell the rest of the crowd, don’t be quiet, we can stomach the blows…

We can deal with the cuts, we can cope with the bruises…

But we cannot live with our dignity broken, snapped like necks choking in nooses… Continue reading On Which Side Shall You Stand When The Skies Rain Blood? (Ya Hussein Is…)
