It is an indisputable and now-widely-known fact that on this day 41 years ago, the CIA assassinated Argentine revolutionary, visionary and luminary Ernseto “Che” Guevara in the jungles of Bolivia. From the time that the ever-smiling, cigar-puffing, fearless-beyond-fearless hero had helped Fidel Castro foment the Cuban Revolution and overthrow the horrific dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, which was backed not only by the American regime but The Syndicate led by international Zionist criminal Meyer Lansky, Washington wanted Che in the dirt. And in La Higuera, October 9th, 1967, the hegemon got what it wanted. Using Bolivian special forces as proxies and the Barrientos coup regime as cover, the CIA had Guevara shot to death. What isn’t well-known at all is that the usurping Zionist entity had its hands in the assassination as well.
As early as 1963, the illegitimate ‘Israeli’ regime was using USAID money secured by the Jewish Lobby, which was meant for its own “development” (read: occupation and expansion), to spread its influence into Latin America under its “Nahal” and “Gadna” programs. In ’64, after Rene Barrientos toppled Víctor Paz Estenssoro, ‘Israel’ stuck its claws into him and solidified a hold in the resource-rich Latin American state. ‘Israel’ took him, his putsch partner Alfredo Ovando Candía and other high-ranking officials of the Bolivian army on a tour of Zionist occupation military installations of various types. Bolivian special forces were trained by IOF, Mossad, Shin Bet and Aman specialists in aviation, seamanship, spy tactics, signals, marksmanship and counter-guerrilla operations. Paramilitary youth groups were schooled too and ‘Israel’ established a stake in Bolivia’s agriculture industry.
This extensive military-intelligence relationship and training regimen continued even after Barrientos with the military dictatorship of Hugo Banzer Suárez, cementing ties with the new ruler in 1971 upon his ascent to power and then bringing him and his military-men to “Tel Aviv” in ’74. In other words, the CIA’s auxiliaries who ended the life of one of the world’s greatest revolutionaries in history were the ZIo-Tumor’s auxiliaries too and were bloodily inked with its training signature. The pernicious role of ‘Israel’ in Bolivia’s affairs was one of the many reasons Che was in the country to help the downtrodden push back against their imperialist-constructed plight.
Nobody should raise eyebrows over this revelation as ‘Israel’ hated Guevara, centrally for the removal of Bautista, which upended a major piece of business of the aforementioned Meyer Lansky, the Jewish big cheese of the global mafia who also was a prominent Zionist gunrunner. It’s a part of Che’s life that isn’t focused on anywhere near as much it should be. He was a militant, committed and passionate Anti-Zionist indeed. And it was this Anti-Zionism that led him to forge deep-rooted, almost-familial ties with Algeria, which was long targeted by the cancerous Judaic regime in cooperation with French colonialism. It’s also what led him to break bread with Arab Nationalism godfather Gamal Abdel Nasser (R.A.) and the Palestinian people of Gaza–who inspired him with their steadfast asymmetrical warfare against Zion. It even took him to the Congo. Yes, ‘Israel’ played a domineering role in the assassination of Patrice Lumumba too.
That he put himself in harm’s way against the headquarters of Dajjal on Earth, i.e. ‘Israel’, makes Che worthy of the title “Shahid”, not just “Martyr”. Remember that Shahid in the Arabic Mother Tongue not only means “one who achieved martyrdom” but “witness”–as in… witness to oppression, witness to tyranny, witness to injustice and witness to the courage shown by certain lionhearted individuals in defying it all. Che was undoubtedly a Shahid who displayed more Islamic tendencies than he knew and certainly acted in a more Muhammadi-Husseini way than a rather large chunk of colonized, Judaized, Westoxified Muslims today. He fought for the oppressed. Like Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Imam Hussein (A.S.) He challenged the hegemonic order. Like Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Imam Hussein (A.S.) He spoke truth to unjust rulers and was unmoved by their threats to silence him. Like Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) and Imam Hussein (A.S.)
And Che didn’t simply KNOW he’d ultimately end up six feet deep in the name of the cause, he embraced this destiny and ran towards it. Nothing more Muhammadi-Husseini than that. This is encapsulated by his famous sayings, “Wherever death may surprise us, let it be welcome, provided that this our battle cry may have reached some receptive ear and another hand may be extended to wield our weapons,” spoken at the Tricontinental Conference, and, “I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man,” which he bellowed with a smile to his murderer just prior to being martyred.
Che also said, “The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.” A notion that is congruent with Shi’a Islamic tradition that implores us to bring the revolution to the heavens so Imam al-Mahdi (A.S.) and Isa al-Masih (A.S.) can guide us when they return, not wait for the heavens to send a revolution because if that was the case, we’d be waiting for infinity. The Rosario Rengade instructed all he taught that, “One must endure without losing tenderness” and “The true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality.” It wasn’t enough to fight against what was wrong with the world, you had to feel it in your bones; in your heart; in your soul. You had to love the struggle and long for the victory with every fiber of your being. Hence his comment, “If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.”
These are not the words of a secular materialist, nor a godless communist. These are the words of a deeply spiritual individual who saw the world and the struggle against Empire in a deeply spiritual way. They could’ve been said by the likes of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah or Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.)! We can’t predict what Che would be if he wasn’t assassinated 41 years ago. All we can do is analyze. And what the signs say based on our analysis is that his Anti-Zionism, solidarity with all Moustazfeen and love of martyrdom would make him feel right at home today with Lebanon’s Hizbullah, Yemen’s Ansarullah and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Who knows? Perhaps that’s why Aleida Guevara, Che’s fiery daughter, met with Hizbullah Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Na’im Qassem in 2010 to receive an oil painting depicting her father with martyred Lebanese Islamic Resistance giant Hajj Imad Mughniyeh (R.A.)
One thing’s for sure, Shahid Che Guevara was a figure who transcended history; a man who left his mark in Mouqawamah. A champion of the poor; champion of the broken; and champion of the revolutionary-minded wherever they were across the planet, no matter their religious, ethnic or national background. He transformed the invaded and the colonized into avengers. And like all great Shouhada, he isn’t merely alive in every single individual who adheres to his righteous blueprints… He is himself alive. Receiving sustenance from our Creator. Guiding us to keep the revolution breathing and shooting at the Monsters; at the Imperium; at Dajjal; at the Synagogue of Satan who took his physical body but failed to snuff out his light. Rest in power, o’ glorious Shahid.
