Another proud day to be an Iraqi. Abou Walaa al Wa’eli, Secretary-General of Iraqi Islamic Resistance group Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada, delivered an impassioned speech over the weekend in which he ripped into the toxic Saudi regime and saluted the Yemeni Islamic Resistance like nobody before him ever has. Not even Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari. Not even Abou Azrael, who has hosted multiple Ansarullah delegations. What the battlefield legend said verbatim was, “I announce here today that Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada is a brigade among your brigades, o’ Ansarullah. Our men who anticipate and look forward to martyrdom for our land, also anticipate and look forward to martyrdom for your land. I declare that I am nothing but a lowly soldier anxiously standing at the signal of Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi!” Yemen’s Sayyed responded with gratitude and humbleness in a statement yesterday, telling Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada that, “We express our thanks and appreciation to the free and loyal people of Iraq. Just as you are with us, we swear by God that we are with you!” If that doesn’t make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, you must have lost your ability to feel. The Iraqi-Yemeni bond is beyond just tight and strong at this point. It has now entered a realm of boundlessness.
For those who have never heard his blessed name before, Abou Waala al-Wa’eli, like Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, was personally trained by Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.) and has survived torture at the hands of the Saddam Hussein regime and the Zio-Amreeki occupation. Al-Wa’eli was involved in both the liberation of Basra from a British-led invasion force and led a small special operations team in Fallujah that aided our Sunni brothers fighting off US aggressors. He’s also been at the forefront confronting the Takfiri Goy Golem both in the homeland and in Syria, from Damascus to Aleppo to Deir Ezzor. Case in point: His words about Yemen are not akin to dust in the wind but rather the roots of a 250-year old tree. If and when Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi takes Commander al-Wa’eli on his word, you will see Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada moujahideen on Yemen’s front lines battling the Wahhabi-Najdi filth.
When we look upon the Nour-filled faces of Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada, as well as Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba and Kata’ib Hizbullah, not to mention the Lebanese Islamic Resistance and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), we feel a wave of inner peace because we know that in spite of so much treachery and corruption throughout the Islamicate, these heroes stand above it anointed. “The Ummah” may have forgotten Yemen but the Resistance Axis most certainly has not. And while such hypocrites have nothing but an afterlife of degradation to endure for their atrocious silence on the world’s most pressing struggle outside of Palestine, the likes of Abou Waala al-Wa’eli and the warriors he commands are guaranteed a spot in the company of Imam al-Mahdi (A.S.) and Jesus Christ (A.S.) when they return to lead the final phase of the ongoing global revolution against Dajjal. Forgive the repetition but thanks to Kata’ib Sayyed al-Shouhada, it is another proud day to be an Iraqi. Damn proud indeed.
