One Year On Since IRGC Officer Mohsen Hojajis (R.A.) Martyrdom: A Stoic Glimmer In The Raging Abyss Mouqawamah Music

by Jonathan Madd Cold Azaziah

Take a look at his face and then note

Not a flinch, not a wince, not even a pinch of fear as he has a blade to his throat

Death sits upon him but its light as a feather

Cause he knows he has eternity to spend with Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) and hell remain righteous forever

He went to Syria to fight the Sufyani

And smite the Anti-Christ Illuminati

Strike back against the spiteful blight-like Yahoudi Lobby

He gazed into Global Zionisms blackened grill and didnt blink

He waded through Global Zionisms bastions still and didnt sink

He didnt think

He didnt wink

He just fought, like it was Ashoura every noon and evening

Like he was the Islamic Revolution breathing

His post, he refused to leave it

Until Bilad al-Sham could rise from the ashes anew and gleaming

Like the embodiment, of ancient structures of Assyrian and Persian Civilization combined only this time with godliness, and imbued with the plumage of a whooshing, booming and blooming phoenix

And announce itself free of the Takfiriyeen and their masters, the Jewish demons

Look at his aura, it has shone and shimmered and it blazed through the mists

The sons of Yazid (L.A.) were upon him like hyenas and monsters but he stood tall, A Stoic Glimmer In The Raging Abyss

They took his head

Like what their predecessors did to Hussein (A.S.)

But what they actually took instead

Were their own souls, damning em to the fires of the spiritual plane

Mohsen Hojaji (R.A.), a miracle, yes, the Khawarij had a miracle slain

Such pitiful men immersed in such miserable bane

Ya Hojaji, in the middle of the night, you cling to their minds and are filling them with fright, like a weapon your spirit is, click, clack, blast and they shiver in pain

Ya Hojaji, in the vastness of the infinite, we hear the reverberations of your invincible name

Now compare your courageous luminosity to the worry and the horror

On the mug of your killer, not a pillar like you, but a filler of swill, tinier and weaker than krill, one not prepared for the fury of the Father (SWT)

Thats going to crush him for the crime he committed when he cut you, embers of Al-Naar will scorch him in flurries on top of flurries in a sauna

His anxiety will be frying him like the Zionist he is, an essence disconnected, dirtied and marauded

While you live on and glow like galaxy chains

For aspiring resistors who saw your picture spread across savvy domains&#823...


OPEN LETTER to Cllr Derek BASTIMAN North Yorks Enquirer


by TIM HICKS at a time when the local Johnston Press newspapers are in an apparently terminal decline, with the Whitby Gazette reduced to a single staff-member, working from home. Only the North Yorks Enquirer provides detailed and documented scrutiny of Scarborough Borough Council, widely considered corrupt even by some of its own elected members.


Cllr Derek Bastiman
Scarborough Borough Council
Town Hall,
St Nicholas Street
YO11 2HG

Dear Councillor Bastiman,

SBC misuse of RIPA and policy on designating all NYE Contributors as collectively causing distress to Councillors and Council employees

I hope this e mail finds you in good health and not suffering with the weather.

I write in response to the recent letter by Councillor Michelle Donohue-Moncrieff published in the North Yorks Enquirer, in which she alleges that the Leader and Cabinet Members Briefing from the councils Communications Officer has crossed the line into party political activity by officers on behalf of the ruling Conservative Group. I would ask that in the interests of openness, accountability and local democracy, you publish a copy of the Leader and Cabinet Members Briefing in the NYE along with any rebuttal you may want to make, so the electorate can come to its own conclusions.

I would like to raise again, a related issue.

Under your leadership SBC follows a policy that:

it is the Councils position that the collective actions and behaviour of persons who contribute to the NYE website are causing and have caused nuisance and distress.

This passage was obviously drafted by a lawyer and the use of the term distress is not accidental. The statutory definition of criminal harassment contained in Section 7 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, specifies that anyone who causes distress to another person is committing an offence of harassment. The effect of this policy is that the Council is treating anyone who contributes any article to the NYE in whatever capacity, as committing a criminal offence of harassment of Councillors and Council employees. Thereby bringing all contributors to the NYE within SBCs powers under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and criminal prosecution.

Have the Saudis Gone Stark Raving Mad? Rigged Game

The blowup with Canada is the latest Saudi overreach. Will they ever pay a price?

By Mehdi Hasan and cross-posted from The Intercept

First, they pick a fight with Canada yeah, that Canada! Maple syrup-loving, hockey-playing, poutine-eating, liberal, multicultural Canada; the land with free health care and a prime minister who wears Eid Mubarak socks.

On Sunday, Saudi Arabia (over)reacted to a single tweet from the Canadian foreign ministry. The tweet called on the Saudis to immediately release imprisoned activist Samar Badawi, sister of Raif, as well as all other peaceful #humanrights activists. The Saudi foreign ministry lambasted the Canadians for an unfortunate, reprehensible, and unacceptable statement, announced the freezing of all new trade and investment transactions with Canada, demanding the Canadian ambassador leave the country within the next 24 hours.

At the same time, Saudi trolls took to Twitter to declare their loud support for  Quebecs independence. Who knew that an absolute Persian Gulf monarchy was so passionate about a French-speaking secessionist movement 6,000 miles away? (Hey, Canadian trolls if you even exist my advice would be to retaliate by offering Ottawas backing for independence in the restless, Shia-dominated Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. Itll drive them totally nuts.)

And Saudi Arabia was just getting started. On Monday, the kingdom escalated the row by suspending scholarships for about 16,000 Saudi students studying in Canada, the Toronto Star reported, and ordered them to attend schools elsewhere. (Can you think of a better example of biting your bigoted nose to spite your intolerant face?)

Then and this is my favorite part of this whole bizarre episode a Saudi group...


USA - North County UK Against Fluoridation

Fluoride study
Wednesday, August 8, 2018 - 5:56 am
In response to Cite Your Sources which appeared in the Aug. 1-7 issue of North Country This Week: The trusted Cochrane group of researchers could not find any quality evidence to prove fluoridation changes the existing differences in tooth decay across socioeconomic groups. Neither could they find valid evidence that fluoride reduces adults cavity rates nor that fluoridation cessation increases tooth decay. Fluoridation may reduce cavities in children (2 primary teeth or 1 permanent tooth). But Cochrane cautions these studies have high risk of bias and were mostly done before preventive measures were widespread, e.g. fluoridated toothpaste and sealants. There is clear evidence that small amounts of fluoride, at or near levels added to U.S. water supplies, present potential risks to the thyroid gland, according to the 2006 National Research Council's (NRC) first-ever published review of the fluoride/thyroid literature. Fluoride impairs thyroid hormones at lower water concentrations than dentists claim is safe, according to Impact of Drinking Water Fluoride on Human Thyroid Hormones: A Case Control Study, published in Scientific Reports (Feb 2018).


Montevideo, Uruguay: Invitation to the 7th Anarchist Book Fair Contra Info

7th Anarchist Book Fair in Montevideo. Coming soon, in September. Social Center Cordon Norte, J. Requena 1758 FERIAANARQUISTAMVD.WORDPRESS.COM

received  08.08.2018

From Montevideo-Uruguay, we invite all to participate in the 7th Anarchist Book Fair.

The machine of capitalism continues its colonization in every sphere of our lives, commodifying relations and ravaging the eco-system. Civilization remains framed in its routine of production and consumption, while development is making surveillance and repression devices increasingly sophiticated targeting all that break the imposed codes and change normality.

We live on times of over-information, where the media are increasingly efficient in the task of forming absolute truths, built through reports that promote fear and submission to those who make the game of state domain. The blindness put together by the spectacle`s media show is growing, generating a focus of attention manipulated and trimmed to the taste of the powerful. This ensures even more dependance and adulation to punitive and repressive institutions, as well as favoring old-style military and hard hand mechanisms, which are another symptom of social decomposition.

The planet is at the stage of environmental collapse, fruit of capitalist productive methods that overwhelm the surrounding environment, causing a systematic decay whose consequence is the murder and impoverishment of life.

While democracy offers a reassuring policy based on dialogue and mediation, right or left wing governments offer different ways to administer the same misery, leaving a free reign for exploiting macro-enterprises and multinationals. Reformist solutions spring up everywhere as sleeping pills, giving rise to the rearrangement of a system that perpetuates its hegemony and achieves a more benevolent and acceptable coverage.

As anarchists and anti-authoritarians, our position must remain firm and sustained. If we want to be protagonists pregnant with change, heading for a world of reciprocal solidarity where each individuality lives with the rest in total freedom, then we must fight the capitalist monster in all its facets and variants. Confrontation is inevitable as long as we mantain intact the conviction of transformation but we should think strategically. Drawing a revolutionary practical imaginary in the present is a necessary and vital challenge since taking responsability for a world that breaks down into piece...


Santiago, Chile: 1st public communiqu from the Anti-Prison Solidarity Network with Juan and Marcelo Contra Info

The A.S.N was presented during the Solidarity Rap activity (14.07.2018)

received 08.08.2018

What is a prison?

Prison is a material structure through which it is intended to inhibit the acts of any person who transgresses the conduct imposed by the State. Thus, punishment and the imposition of socially accepted discipline are the regime in which the captives have to live, by this seeking to annul their actions, ideas and beliefs. These acts may constitute crimes and like the ones that challenge order, be of revolutionary politics. It is with these that we again take a stand either by supporting or having solidarity with those companions who presently are encarcerated for having carried out subversive actions for a political idea of liberation. The commitment of these companions makes us want to support them in real ways, concretely because we share goals.

We, autonomous comrades and anarchists, have been carrying out libertarian initiatives and projects for some time from different places and contexts seeking to generate a break with the order, the norms and eveything that tries to impose the Capital and the State. It is under this light that several people have converged to collectively create the Anti-Prison Solidarity Network with Juan and Marcelo.

Who are Juan and Marcelo?

Juan Aliste Vega and Marcelo Villarroel Seplveda are subversive, autonomous and libertarian prisoners who are in the high security prison of Santiago, Chile, since July 2010 (Juan) and December 2009 (Marcelo).

Since very young these comrades have engaged in revolutionary struggles during military dictatorship and after it developing offensive actions against Capital and State. Attacks that were both to material structures and subjects that were part of the state apparatus. The times required positioning and determination, so they reasoned, trying to achieve this by joining Mapu-Lautaro, one of several political-military groups that existed in that period.

Their challange to the established order led to their arrest in 1991 and 1992, respectiv...

STRANGEWAY Discloses Massive ERYC Child Sexual Abuse Failure

NYE Guest Author, campaigner Andy STRANGEWAY (also an ERYC elected Ward Councillor), has published shocking revelations regarding the apparent cover-up of a horrific child sexual abuse case in the East Riding.


ERYC Silence On Child Abuse

Many will be aware of the St Williams child abuse case in Market Weighton yet few will be aware how ERYC officers misled Councillors and how Councillors accepted information from officers to be correct.

All of this on the watch of ERYC Leader Conservative Councillor Stephen Parnaby.

The following is reproduced by kind permission of Graham Baverstock who was one of the many children abused at St Williams.

  • Councillors Jefferies/ Brian  ERYC Liberal Democrat Councillor Brian Jefferies for Hessle
  • Tony Hunter ERYC Director Social Services

There is currently a culture at ERYC to accept everything an officer says as gospel. Indeed ERYC Leader Conservative Councillor Stephen Parnaby recently stated in full council:

Smoke Signals A conversation in the aftermath of G20 in Hamburg Contra Info

received 2018/08/06

First appeared as Ein Gesprch mit einigen Militanten ber die informelle Koordinierung im Vorfeld der G20 in Rauchzeichen, a magazine published by Autonomous Groups, Fall 2017 and now first published in English on . This is late, but not too late. We can use this conversation to prepare something for the coming black bloc attack next year in Biarritz/France, where the G7 summit will be end of Summer 2019.

AG: At the end of the summer of 2016, several communiques propose an informal coordination of radical groups in the run-up to the G20 summit in Hamburg. You took part in it. What interventions were you aiming for and which perspectives did it entail for you?

[Chuzpe]: On the occasion of several big events like the G8 in Heiligendamm in 2007 or around the Destroika prior to the inauguration of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt in 2015, there have been similar proposals and radical campaigns. It is not a very new idea. Starting from an anarchist analysis, I see the necessity of a permanent conflictuality and Im sceptical towards this staging of a political play where everyone has its role. Focusing on such an event leads often to the side-lining of everyday struggles. But at the same time, I see the possibility of a tension opening up in such moments, in which the scope of our interventions can amplify. Towards this end, I think that a focus on the practice of radical actions rooted in local struggles while referring to each other, can be a good way to resolve this contradiction and to work towards sustained action. Meanwhile, the practice of direct actions inside the mobilisation gives the possibility of showing this means of struggle, which can motivate and inspire other people.

[Peter Pan]: I think that a lot of the actions that happened during the year are part of specific struggles. Each specific struggle is valid on its own and is important, but the articulation of shared points gets lost. To create a certain ambience, but more so, to find shared points in the different strategies and analyses, points of reference are important. Which are created rather well with this kind of coordination. Individuals, groups, but also movements, that dont k...


Inside Boris's mind Is the BBC biased?

What is in Boriss mind?               
"Take the vip from him! Why not?" 

That was from the sound-bite clip of Lord Sheikh that was shown at the head of Mark Urbans Newsnight, which was great fun. Hysterical.
After a couple of days of antisemitism, the Westminster pack has moved on to Islamophobia,
 announced Mark Urban.  The Westminster pack? The BBC is going ballistic over it today, so make that the BBC pack.

Newsnight says the P.M. and Brandon Lewis think Boris should apologise. Lord Sheikh (or is that Sheikh Lord) demands that the whip is taken away from Boris, (or was it that the whip should be applied to his backside?) I cant quite remember.

Tom Newton Dunn seems to think this is a deliberate manoeuvre by Boris, whom Jawed Iqbal describes in The Times () as a cynical political opportunist and not about the burka at all, but a much larger issue. (Even larger than a burka?)

Na sowas! Dass aus dieser Bundesregierung nochmal eine ... Fefes Blog

Na sowas! Dass aus dieser Bundesregierung nochmal eine gute Idee kommen wrde, damit habe ich nun wirklich nicht gerechnet. Hier ist sie: Entwicklungsminister Mller will die EU-Mrkte fr smtliche Gter aus Afrika ffnen, und zwar zoll- und quotenfrei.

Ich bin ehrlich gesagt erstaunt, dass das jetzt noch nicht so ist. Wir exportieren doch umgekehrt wie blde nach Afrika, machen mit unseren Lebensmittel- und Kleidungsspenden deren Bauern und Texilbranchen kaputt.

Und der Mller hat sogar einen Plan fr die Flchtlinge:

"Ich bin mir sicher: Afrikas Jugend will und wird sich nicht auf die Flucht begeben und in der Heimat bleiben, wenn es Arbeit und Zukunftsperspektiven gibt." Europa knne sich dennoch nicht vllig abschotten, sagte er.

Im Rahmen eines EU-Afrika-Abkommens mssten die EU-Staaten auch legale Mglichkeiten erffnen, um in Europa zu arbeiten. Um die illegale Zuwanderung mit Hilfe von Schleppern zu bekmpfen, mssten die EU-Mitgliedsstaaten in einem EU-Afrika-Abkommen zustzlich legale Mglichkeiten schaffen, um in Europa zu arbeiten. "Klar ist aber auch, dass wir von den afrikanischen Lndern im Gegenzug verlangen, abgelehnte Asylbewerber ohne Duldung zurckzunehmen."

Da bin ich mir ja nicht sicher, ob das wirklich so ist. Wenn da ganze Landstriche wegen Krieg und Klimaerwrmung unbewohnbar werden, dann knnen wir noch so viele Mrkte ffnen. Irgendwohin werden die Menschen dann fliehen mssen.

Update: Stellt sich raus: Die EU hat bereits ein Programm namens "Everything But Arms", das Lndern auf der "Least Developed Country"-List zoll- und quota-freie Exporte in die EU erlaubt.

Turkish Banks Scramble to Stave Off Debt Crisis, as Lira Plummets Rigged Game

Too little, too late?

Desperation is rising in Turkeys banking sector following months of escalating political and financial instability. Benchmark interest rates have been hiked 10 percentage points so far this year to over 17%, making it much more expensive for companies and families to service their debt. But even that hasnt stopped the Turkish Lira from plunging almost 25% since March.

Turkey is going through its first currency crisis of the floating era, explained Dani Rodik, a Turkish economist and professor at Harvard University. All the previous ones were when the rate was fixed or managed, and hence unfolded much more quickly. This one is stretched over time, and the government prefers to ignore it.

The latest spark of concern was the U.S. governments decision to declare sanctions against two Turkish cabinet ministers over the detention of an American pastor. The Trump administration said it was also reviewing Turkeys duty-free access to the U.S. market, which could affect $1.7 billion of Turkish exports. Bloomberg reported that the US has prepared a broader list of Turkish entities and individuals that could be subject to further sanctions.

On Monday the Lira shed 5.5% of its value, before recovering slightly following intervention from the Bank of Turkey. The central bank changed its rules to loosen the upper limit of banks reserve requirements in a desperate bid to support the crumbling currency. The bank announced it was reducing the maximum amount of foreign currency lenders can park at the regulator as part of their required reserves.

The move will provide lenders with an additional $2.2 billion of funds, the bank said. But that pales in comparison with the money lenders are losing as a result of the plunging currency, capital flight, rising inflation now at 16%, its highest level since 2004 and surging non-performing loans

RIP To Syrian Scientist Dr. Aziz Asber, Murdered By Mossad For Taking Resistance Axis Arsenals To New Heights Mouqawamah Music

by Jonathan Azaziah

Another day, another crime against Bilad al-Sham by International Zionism. Syrian scientist Dr. Aziz Asber (R.A.) has been martyred after a car bombing in Masyaf, Hama that was planned and executed by the illegal Jewish cancers Mossad. Dr. Asber was the chief of Syrias Scientific Studies and Research Center and a key revolutionary figure in the weapons programs of his homeland and the Resistance Axis, coordinating directly with Quds Force Commander Qassem Suleimani himself and Hizbullah. He had a mind matched by only a very small few in his field and was in the midst of working on special long-range missiles that could run on solid fuel instead of liquid. Dr. Asber was also mapping out a framework with Irans IRGC to begin production of precision-guided missiles by adapting heavy Syrian SM600 Tishreen rockets. The martyred Syrian scientific giant and his students were also the brains behind the top-notch mods on Syrias air defense systems that have been clipping the wings of Israeli F-16s and drones as well as the mods on the T-72 tanks that propelled the Syrian Arab Army to victory in brutal fights with the Takfiris in Rif Dimashq and Daraa. Needless to say, the Jews occupying Falasteen hated the man and were fearful of his erudite mind to the point it made them shake. Hence why they slaughtered him in such a cowardly fashion.

Dr. Asber isnt the first Syrian scientist whose life was taken by Israel (and its Takfiri proxies). It began on April 18th, 2011, just a month after the Zionist-led destabilization of Syria had kicked off. The bright light Issa Aboud, from Hadida, Homs, who was Syrias most prominent young scientific mind, had over 100 patents to his credit and was the 2004 recipient of the WIPO Gold Medal Award for being the worlds youngest inventor, was shot dead. In June of 2011, Professor of Petrochemical Studies Dr. Ahlam Imad was murdered not too far from Baath University where she taught along with five of her family members. Then in September of 2011, nuclear engineers Dr. Aws Khalil, Dr. Nael Dakhil and Dr. Muhammad Aqeel were assassinated in a hail of bullets in Homs. Dr. Nabeel Zoghreib was killed in July of 2012 along with his wife and two sons in Damascus. Brigadier General Dr. Issa Al-Khouli, the head of Hamish Military Hospital, and rumored to have been on Lebanons front lines during the July War treating the wounded moujahideen of Hizbullah, was killed in February of 2012 right outside his home. November 2014 saw five more Syrian nuclear engineers martyred. Going down the line, it is actually even further back that we must look. During the Muslim Brotherhoods Zionist-backed insurgency against the Syrian state from 76-82, several scientists including Dr. Muhammad al-Fadel, Dr. Shehadeh Khalil and Dr. Ibrahim Naama were assassinated....


These 5 Trump Policies Are Leading Us Toward Economic Chaos Rigged Game

The question is not if but when.

By Nomi Prins and cross-posted from The Nation

Here we are in the middle of the second year of Donald Trumps presidency and if theres one thing we know by now, its that the leader of the free world can create an instant reality-TV show on geopolitical steroids at will. True, hes not polished in his demeanor, but he has an unerring way of instilling the most uncertainty in any situation in the least amount of time.

Whether through executive orders, tweets, cable-news interviews, or rallies, he regularly leaves diplomacy in the dust, while allegedly delivering for a faithful base of supporters who voted for him as the ultimate anti-diplomat. And while hes at it, he continues to take a wrecking ball to the countless political institutions that litter the Acela Corridor. Amid all the tweeted sound and fury, however, the rest of us are going to have to face the consequences of Donald Trumps getting his hands on the economy.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, entropy is a process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder. With that in mind, perhaps the best way to predict President Trumps next action is just to focus on the path of greatest entropy and take it from there.

Let me do just that, while exploring five key economic sallies of the Trump White House since he took office and the bleakness and chaos that may lie ahead as the damage to the economy and our financial future comes into greater focus.


When Trump ran for the presidency, he tapped into a phenomenon that was widely felt but generally misunderstood: a widespread anger at Wall Street and corporate cronyism. Upon taking office, he promptly redirected that anger exclusively at the countrys borders and its global economic allies and adversaries.

In 2015, the Department of Health and Human Services recommended a then-newly calibrated ratio of fluoride to water at .7 mg/L, or parts per million. The ADA supported the recommendation.

Now the government said it is proposing the operational control range of .6 mg/L to 1.0 mg/L "based on analysis of available data." 

Managers of adjusted water systems at state and local levels need the updated operational control range to ensure the maintenance of consistent monthly averages in fluoride concentration that maximize prevention of tooth decay, the department said in its call for comments.

The department is accepting comments on the existence of any "evidence-based concerns about the appropriateness of the proposed operational control range."

Spike in Americans using toothpaste WITHOUT fluoride: Dentists urge people to stop 'ridiculous' trend as they warn 'brushing alone is note enough'
  • Fluoride has been widespread in toothpaste and drinking water since the 1960s
  • The chemical is thought to help fight cavity by bolstering tooth enamel 
  • But some dentists and patients say the simple act of brushing is enough 
  • A review of studies by the University of Washington suggests there is little proof that this is the case 
  • Still, dentists remain divided and fluoride-free toothpaste companies are flourishing 
Dental health experts worry that more people are using toothpaste that skips the most important ingredient - fluoride - and leaves them at a greater risk of cavities.
Most toothpastes already contain fluoride, but in recent years, some dentists have suggested that the chemical may be superfluous and even harmful.
While health authorities recognize fluoride as a cavity blocker, the internet is dotted with claims, often from 'natural' toothpaste marketers and alternative medicine advocates, that fluoride-free toothpaste also prevents cavities....


Letterbox gate Is the BBC biased?

This hooha about ladies dressed as a pillar-box has seen the BBC pushing the correlation between antisemitism in the Labour Party and Islamophobia in the Conservative Party. There is no real correlation; only fakes.

The Corbynites insist that the antisemitism crisis has been confected to discredit Jeremy Corbyn, while your average puzzled onlooker observes as letter-box-gate is increasingly inflated, hour by hour, for the purpose of vilifying Boris Johnson, who, according to the BBC, is cynically courting the populist vote en route to the top job.

Many believe the Labour Partys anti-Israel rhetoric is a cynical way of courting the considerable Muslim vote en route to Number Ten.

On the one hand we have Nazi-like antisemitism in the Labour Party (emanating from the hard left and Judaeo-phobic Muslims) which is either being flatly denied by camp Corbyn, or dismissed by foolish left-wing politicians and media pundits as justifiable opposition to the policies of the Israeli government. (Which always comes under the heading What Israel is doing)

On the other side of the coin, it is argued that the very concept of Islamophobia is false and that opposing or criticising Islam is not a psychological condition but a rational response to the creeping Islamisation that the BBC appears to be foisting upon us, which we have to pretend is fine or be deemed racist.

Genuine anti-Muslim bigotry may be a real phenomenon, but being flippant about pillar boxes is not it. 

Why should we have to pretend that extreme Islamic garb is unremarkable? Its ludicrous, impractical and medically inadvisable. Extreme fashions come and go; piercings, tattoos, crippling high-heeled shoes, all statements, like Look at me. Im a bit of an idiot. 

Wearing the Islamic, 'extreme modesty' costume in public is equally impractical, inappropriate and idiotic, but with an implicit message: Look at me!  Im more pious than you, and unlike you, Im virtuous and modest. You are debauched and immoral, but I am good.

Hizbullah Fiercely Condemns US-Israeli Assassination Attempt On Maduro, Salutes The Bolivarian Revolution Mouqawamah Music

by Jonathan Azaziah

The alliance between the Resistance Axis and the Bolivarian Revolution remains robust! Hizbullah has fiercely and unabashedly condemned the US-Israeli assassination attempt on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, saying it comes amidst Zio-Imperialist conspiracies against all states across the globe which stand with the Palestinian cause and Washingtons desire to futilely uphold its hegemony. The Lebanese Islamic Mouqawamah also slammed the American ZOGs intervention in the affairs of Caracas and its seemingly never-ending desire to topple Bolivarianism by military, political and economic means.

Congratulating Maduro on surviving the attempt on his life and coming out not merely unscathed but also stronger, the Men of God saluted him for his courage, his steadfastness and his commitment to defying US pressures on his nation. They also hailed the Venezuelan people for their own indomitable will and the fact theyve come together and shown full support to their president, their government and their army. Hizbullah knows better than anyone what US-Israeli intimidation looks like. For nearly four decades, the Party of ALLAH (SWT) has dealt with occupation, multiple invasions, murders of its top officials and commanders, sanctions (albeit totally ineffective in the grand scheme of things), psychological warfare, media attacks, political subversion, internal instability and terrorism. All because Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the moujahideen he commands have said, No. We kneel before ALLAH (SWT) and ALLAH (SWT) only. Not you or your hegemony. The Chavistas have said and done the same. It this unshakeable rejectionist position that bonds Hizbullah and the Bolivarian Revolution so closely and powerfully together.

Indeed, the Lebanese Islamic Resistance concluded its statement by stating it is proud of its friendship with President Maduro and it is honored to have the loyalty of the Venezuelan people in their quest to resist. This has a historical context. During the 2006 July War which we are still commemorating El Comandante Hugo Chavez (rip) tore Israel and its American backers to shreds for their genocidal war on the Lebanese people. The Bolivarian Revolutions godfathers heroic stance came as the Arabs and Muslims of the GCC aligned themselves with Tel Aviv in the exterminationist plot against the Resistance. Of course it goes without saying that Hizbullah not only got through it but decisively and emphatically won the battle in a Divine Victory. Sayyed Abou Hadi publicly saluted...

Chile: Communiqu from anarchist Juan Aliste Vega Latest medical reports and revolutionary solidarity Contra Info

Juan Aliste Vegas message from the Prison Hospital

Our negotiations and tenacity inside and outside prison over the past four months have achieved a first result: on Thursday 19th July I was transferred from the High Security Prison to the Prison Hospital to have an ECG and other tests I needed. The following morning, Friday 20th July, I was transferred again amidst a huge deployment of police and prison guards to the INCA (Institute of Neurosurgery) to finally have an angiography, a test in order to get a more detailed image of the area where the cerebral damage I sustained from blows inflicted in the past is to be found.

It is worth mentioning that this test is crucial and necessary for the operation that I will need to have very soon. In the end the test was carried out without any problem and the medical team involved treated me in a dignified and correct way.
After the test I was transferred to the Prison Hospital by ambulance; from there I will be discharged soon to be taken back to the High Security Prison.
Medical language and its technical details can only partially describe my current situation. There are still many obstacles to be overcome, just as difficult or even more difficult than this test, before I can undergo the brain operation, which had already been defined urgent last March: obstacles and barriers erected because for the State I am an outcast, closely watched by the local police who act according to the hard logic of revenge and fury, and moreover Im submerged in a disgusting bureaucratic quagmire.
These words are far from victimization and lament, but are full of revolutionary, untameable and subversive vitality. In the constant practice of reciprocal revolutionary solidarity, which we subversive political prisoners have been carrying out for years, it becomes necessary to relate any step taken in this battle. It wasnt the first nor will it be the last battle we have to face as outcasts of the State.
Id like to take the chance to rejoice in the various initiatives carried out in Santiago, Concepcin, Valdivia, Temuco and other places, as well as the internationalist initiatives that were able to cross the borders of Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Spain Initiatives and gestures with which we put solidarity into practice, solidarity that builds and strengthen...
