Al-Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah, the secretary-general of the Lebanese Shi'i socio-political movement, annually delivers a speech on the tenth day of the Islamic lunar month of Muharram, the day of 'Ashura, in commemoration of the martyrdom of the third Shi'i Imam, Husayn bin 'Ali who was killed in 680 C.E. on the barren plain of Karbala in Iraq in the culmination of a brief, failed revolt against the Umayyad caliph Yazid bin Mu'awiya (Yazid I). In the videos below, Nasrallah delivers a speech on 'Ashura, Imam Husayn, and politics in the Islamic year 1428 (2007).
