Of Masters and Their Slaves

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." ―Ayn Rand

Malcolm Shabazz, a maternal grandson and the namesake of the late African-American civil rights leader Malcolm X, was beaten to death on Thursday, May 9, 2013, in The Palace Club, a rough dive bar/brothel located near Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico City, Mexico. He was 28.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2013, Shabazz went to The Palace along with his friend Miguel Angel Suarez, an organizer of RUMEC, a labor and construction group based in California. Shabazz was relaxing, sipping beer and enjoying the company of female dancers, but during the early hours of Thursday the duo became involved in a violent dispute over a $1,200 bar tab. Shabazz was separated from Suarez and several club employees assaulted him. After severely beating Shabazz, his assailants left him next to a nearby sewage. He later died from several blunt-force trauma injuries.

Prior to his murder, Shabazz, a convert to Shia Islam, was highly active at various Khomeinist Shia centers in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Saba Center of San Jose, Fatimiyya Islamic Center of Hayward, and others. Shabazz promoted the Iranian and Syrian regimes as well as Hezbollah among his audiences.

While the Saba Center Monitor considers Shabazz a traitor and agent of the oppressive anti-America Velayat-e Faqih Iranian regime and totally rejects his radical message and Khomeinist political stance, we also strongly condemn his tragic murder and call on authorities to arrest and prosecute his killers to the fullest extent of the law.

The Monitor also denounces those who are alleging that Shabazz was assassinated by Western intelligence services such as the CIA, FBI, etc.

Rafic Labboun Scheduled for Release from Federal Prison Again

During the past four years, Rafic Labboun (a.k.a. Wilhelm Dyck; a.k.a. Raffic Mohammed Labboun Allaboun; a.k.a. Hajj Rafik), a leading Hezbollah operative, convicted felon, fugitive, impersonator, and Imam with Saba Islamic Center of San Jose, California (Shia Association of Bay Area), has spent much of his time touring U.S. Federal prisons.

Labboun is now scheduled for release from the custody of Federal authorities on Saturday, May 11, 2013. However, Labboun might still face charges in Belize for all the troubles he caused during his adventure there last year (2012).
