“Kill us! Our nation will awaken even more.” – Imam Khomeini (r)

 

Karbala, Iraq - July 15, 2013 – In the late afternoon on May 9, 2013, I received a series of text and voice messages asking me to confirm Malcolm Shabazz’ death. The ensuing hours and days are a blur. We came together as a community to bury, mourn and remember our fallen brother, tragically taken from us much too soon. We also witnessed a vicious character assassination in the media and within our own communities. I had been unable to articulate my feelings or place Malcolm’s life and death into context until reaching this land and the blessed tomb of the Master of Martyrs, the Chief of the youth of paradise, Imam Hussain ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib (a).

 

Like many Americans and people of conscience, I grew up deeply inspired by Shaheed Malik Shabazz (“Malcolm X”). Shaheed Malik journeyed from the lowest depths of society to reach the lofty status of martyrdom. He did so by standing up for the oppressed and being uncompromising in his quest for truth. He was humble and sincere enough to admit his errors and always accept rational arguments. He accepted as much of the truth as he received, even at the cost of tremendous power and eventually his life. He was ruthlessly martyred in the presence of his wife and daughters because his existence was a threat. He will forever remain a symbol of incorruptibility, rational thinking and courage.

Right now the eyes of the world are focused on two hunger strikes..One just kicked off in California at Pelican Bay with inmates, demanding improved conditions including an end to solitary confinement…Yesterday (July 8th) more than 30 thousand inmates refused food…

The other big hunger strike is the one in Guantanamo Bay which was started by detainees and has been going on for more than 100 days.. Yesterday Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def made a video where he demonstrated how striking prisoners were being force fed food. It was grueling and beyond disturbing. Yasiin because of the extreme pain, could not complete what detainees are forced to endure everyday.

There is a 3rd hunger strike that we should pay attention to…This one involves Afro-Mexicans in Mexico City who launched a hunger strike last week to protest the brutal slaying of Malcolm Shabbazz who was the grandson of Malcolm X.. Below is a video of the news report coming out of the DF.. Below that is a link to their blog explaining whats going on in their own words.. We took the liberty of translating two of the entries, but encourage folks to stay up to date

Here is a link to the Citizens’ Committee Defense not Naturalized and Afro-Mexicans blog

Letter of Thanks to supporters, friends and lovers of Malcolm Shabazz,


We would like to first send out thanks and much love to those of you all who sent money to the Hajj Malcolm Shabazz funeral fund that was on the internet. We are totally in awe of not only the response but how people donated from small amounts to large amounts. We can truly say that the "people" by the Grace of God buried young Malcolm. When we saw how people stepped up during such a hard time for Ms. Qubilah Shabazz and helped to bury her son it was a testament to the saying, by God's leave, that "Power is in the hands of the People".


We would also like to thank all of the different people and organizations that helped finance this funeral. There are too many names to mention and with fear of forgetting any individual we will refer to everyone in groups.

 

 
Hajj Malcolm El Shabazz's Official Statement Concerning His Arrest And Detainment Print E-mail

Several weeks ago Oppression.org issued several tweets after finding out about the arrest of Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of the great civil rights leader Malcolm X. Below is the official statement from Malcolm himself explaining what really happened. -Oppression.org

I sincerely appreciate the care & concern of the People over my well-being after Press TV's report of the most recent events which have transpired regarding the F.B.I.'s harassment of me.

 

Given the storm of lies, and half-truths that come with being associated with being the descendant of El Hajj Malik el Shabazz, also known as Minister Malcolm X, any and everything that I do; great or small, good or not so good, real or imagined is subject to controversy. However, in this missive I will take this opportunity to properly & fully disclose what transpired.

 

In the beginning of 2012 I had been informed that I was under investigation by the F.B.I.'s Counter Terrorism Task Force Unit located in Goshen, N.Y.

 

The agents of this division-and in collaboration with others-have visited several residences of which I was known by them to frequent. However, they would never come when they knew me to actually be there. They would leave their cards with the residents asking them to tell me to call them, and then would tell surrounding residents to observe the house and to notify them if they saw me.

 
Pilot reports spotting 'drone' over Brooklyn Print E-mail

Was there a drone flying over Brooklyn Monday afternoon?

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a report from a pilot of an Alitalia passenger jet who says he saw an unmanned aircraft while landing at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.

"We saw a drone, a drone aircraft," the pilot can be heard telling controllers on radio calls captured by the website LiveATC.net.

"The FAA is investigating a report... he saw a small, unmanned or remote-controlled aircraft while on final approach to Runway 31 Right," according a statement sent to CNN by FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown. "The sighting was approximately four to five miles west of the airport at an altitude of approximately 1,500 feet," she said.

That description puts the aircraft somewhere over Brooklyn and on the other side of the airport from where the plane was coming in for a landing.
