As usual, leave it to Yemen’s Mighty, Mighty Ansarullah to show the entire planet–especially the increasingly apathetic Arab-Muslim part of it–what principled Anti-Imperialism, unrelenting Anti-Zionism and true Striking Star Solidarity with another oppressed nation look like. Last week, Yemen’s defenders held a massive rally for Venezuela, condemning US-Zionist aggression against the Bolivarian Revolution in the harshest possible terms and letting Nicolas Maduro know that he, as well as the Venezuelan people, have friends, comrades and family on Yemeni soil. The Ansarullahis mocked the Tangerine Terrorist Donald Trump. They trampled upon the American and ‘Israeli’ flags. They displayed portraits of Nicolas Maduro and El Comandante Hugo Chavez (rip). Nasserists and socialists of various types joined in–an example of the Houthiyeen putting politics aside for the sake of fighting the Imperium. Pictures of Fidel Castro (rip) could be seen too. The Yemeni and Venezuela flags were rocked together in a sea of Sarkhas. Beauty doesn’t even come close to describing it.
Last month marked the 3-year anniversary of the Zaria Massacre in which over 1,000 Nigerian Shi’a were murdered by Muhammadu Buhari’s US-‘Israeli’-Saudi-backed military on orders from “Tel Aviv” and its Washington ZOG-dog. The slaughter culminated in the imprisonment of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, his wife Sayyeda Zeenat and several hundred activists from the Islamic Movement of Nigeria. We are now at month 37 since this horrific atrocity was committed with impunity and the Khomeini of Africa was thrown into a cell on completely, utterly, massively, ABSURDLY false charges.
While there is certainly enough blame to go around vis-a-vis the failure to raise awareness for the Lion of Zaria and the Shouhada (R.A.) of his movement… From Shirazi extremists masquerading as Shi’a to Wahhabi-Takfiris masquerading as Sunnis… To actual Shi’a and Sunnis whose politics are terrible and whose courage-levels are minimal… To “human rights” activists and “Palestine Solidarity” campaigners who are all immersed in globs on top of mounds of hypocrisy and racism… That shall be set aside for another today. The world at large, specifically those young and fiery souls across the Islamicate who are hungry for a champion of the oppressed that they can call their own, should get to know the man… The Sheikh… the revolutionary… the Saint that is Zakzaky. If you know him, you will love him. And if you love him, you will fight for him.
With 30 million Husseinis converging on Iraq’s holy city of Karbala for Arbaeen 2018, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s sharp words about the event come to mind, “The march for Arbaeen is like a soft war that splits the enemy from the inside without firing a bullet.” The Imam of the Islamic Revolution couldn’t be more correct. Arbaeen isn’t merely a religious gathering–and the largest one in the world at that–which marks 40 days of mourning following the paradoxical tragedy and triumph of Ashoura. It’s a revolutionary affirmation of counter-hegemony, anti-terrorism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Parasitism, Anti-Imperialism, Anti-Takfirism and counter-hasbara. It’s an impregnable defense of Islam and a reminder to the various tentacles of World Arrogance that the lovers of Imam Hussein (A.S.) and the defenders of the Pure Household (A.S.) that he’s the beating heart of shall not be kept from him. Not now. Not ever.
It is all types of despicable that the Zionist media has hijacked the martyrdom of Jordanian Mouqawamist writer, journalist and thinker Nahed Hattar in an attempt to spread fitnah between Muslims and Christians. The New York Times, The Guardian, BBC, CNN, The Telegraph, Al-Jazeera and numerous other mainstream outlets have all made it a point in their reportage of Nahed’s killing to repeatedly highlight–in the fashion of typical psychological warfare and hasbara operations–his Christian background against a backdrop of rampaging, bloodthirsty, ever-advancing, basically-sentient “Islamic extremism” which is consuming every non-Muslim voice of “moderation” and “tolerance” in our region. There is no nuance. There is no political or geopolitical analysis. There is no notation of the social and religious peripheries, particularly in Jordan. Nor is there any historical context whatsoever. The Parasites’ Press simply wants everyone to follow Hattar’s murder strictly through the lens of the lone event which Zion says is the reason he was killed: His Facebooking of a cartoon that led to him being put on trial for “insulting Islam”. And then on the day of that trial commencing, an “Islamic extremist” gunned him down in front of an Amman courthouse for that very cartoon. The Parasites’ Press however, as if this really even needed to be articulated, is lying through its corroded teeth.
