Bhai abde53,
You have a good point about helping them, but I dont think its that easy to help them financial or sending them food which they really are in need off.. The saudi and their partner have a naval blockade and are trying to break the Houthis moral by staving them and the rest of the population , which they have failed miserably..
What I'm doing is giving them moral support and spreading informasjon about atrocities committed by the wahabbi rodents. I want everyone to know, how those imbeciles wahabbi are getting there butts kicked when they should have been winning with all that firepower..

04/04/2016 dozens of soldiers in another failed offensive at the Yemeni border
The Saudi Royal Army – backed by the Arab Coalition forces – made a second attempt to capture the strategic city of Rabuah after a failed attack on Sunday that resulted in heavy casualties. According to the Yemeni Army’s spokesperson, the Republican Guard forces repelled the Saudi forces attempting to infiltrate northern Rabuah, killing an estimated 3 dozen soldiers inside this border-city in Saudi Arabia’s ‘Asir Province. The Saudi Armed Forces, Arab Coalition, and Hadi loyalists have lost approximately 550-600 combatants in the last 8 days while trying to capture Rabuah and the Midi District in northwestern Yemen.

05/04/2016 launch counter-offensive inside Saudi Arabia
The Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – backed by the Houthi forces – have taken the initiative in Rabuah after repelling the Saudi Royal Army’s large-scale offensive over the weekend. According to the Saudi whistle-blower, Mutjahid, the Yemeni Army and Houthi forces liberated 4 points outside of Rabuah, killing several Saudi-led Coalition fighters in the process of their advance in the Asir Governorate of Saudi Arabia. As a result of their large loss of life, the Saudi regime has reentered negotiations with the Houthi delegation in order to dissipate the violence.

Former Yemeni president blames ISIS rise on Saudi Arabia

Former Yemeni president blames ISIS rise on Saudi Arabia

In an interview aired on the Lebanese Al Mayadeen channel last Friday, the former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh blasted Saudi Arabia for financially and ideologically supporting terror groups in the Arab world.

He added that the United States and its Israeli ally use Saudi Wahhabism to expand influence in the region and stoke instability to further their colonial ambitions. Saleh also revealed that he was offered millions of dollars through the former Saudi ambassador to Yemen in return for allying himself with the Saudi aggressors.

However, Mr. Saleh admit the presence of administrative differences between his party and the Houthis, though it was nothing to undermine the national unity of all Yemeni resistance forces against the Saudi invasion.


Saudi Arabia launched its military campaign against Yemen on March 26 of the previous year in a bid to restore power to the fugitive Yemeni president Hadi. With initial success quickly wavering, Saudi Arabia and its coalition allies found themselves stuck in a costly stalemate that is impacting their already fragile oil-based economies. ... di-arabia/

Houthi: Yemeni Nation Will Not Surrender

Leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement Abdel Malek al-Houthi has called for a “resolution based on justice” to the conflict in the country, saying the nation will not surrender to the demands by the Saudi-backed party to the peace talks.

On Thursday, the Saudi-backed delegation loyal to Yemen’s resigned president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, ended the UN-mediated peace negotiations with the Houthi delegation in Kuwait City.

“Our national delegation in Kuwait has presented all possible concessions and what they want from us is to surrender and this is impossible,” Houthi said in a televised statement on Friday.

“We are ready for a resolution based on justice but we will not surrender.”

Ansarullah and its allies said both the Hadi loyalists and the regime in Riyadh lack the political will to promote a diplomatic process aimed at settling the conflict in Yemen.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Houthi held the United States responsible for the deadly Saudi aggression against Yemen, describing Riyadh as a tool in the hands of Washington. He reiterated that the Yemeni nation is determinate to confront the campaign.

Houthi also stated that the US has returned al-Qaeda to southern Yemen after the militants were expelled by the Yemeni army and popular committees, adding that the militants fight alongside the Saudi forces.

Washington and its regional allies, especially Saudi Arabia, were angry when the Yemeni forces managed to purge several areas of al-Qaeda, he said.

Houthi said the United States uses the pretext of fighting terrorism to interfere in the internal affairs of the regional countries.

He said the US seeks fragmentation of Yemen for its own benefit.

Saudi Arabia launched the deadly military aggression against Yemen on March 26, 2015, in a bid to bring Hadi back to power and crush Ansarullah.

Islamists blow up 16-century mosque in Yemen
| News , Middle East | THE DAILY STAR

ADEN: Sunni Islamist radicals in Yemen have blown up a 16th century mosque housing the shrine of a revered Sufi scholar in the city of Taez, a local official said Sunday.

Gunmen led by a Salafist local chief known as Abu al-Abbas blew up the mosque of Sheikh Abdulhadi al-Sudi on Friday night, the official told AFP, confirming media reports of the attack.

Yemen's commission for antiquities and museums condemned the destruction of the site that is considered the most famous in Taez.

It said the mosque's white dome was "one of the biggest domes in Yemen and one of the most beautiful religious sites in old Taez".

Images of the site before destruction showed a white square-shaped, single-storey structure topped by a large central dome circled by smaller ones.

Sufism is a mystical movement of Islam that is frowned upon by the ultraconservative Salafist brand of Islam.

Taez city is besieged by Shiite rebels, but the city itself is controlled by a combination of forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and allied militias.

Residents have complained of the growing influence of radical Salafists, who have been imposing curbs on mixing between men and women.

While Al-Qaeda and ISIS militants have been under attack by both government and rebel forces as well as US drones, Salafists operate under the banner of pro-government militias fighting the Iran-backed Shiite rebels. ... yemen.ashx

Saudi grand mufti piggy asks money for war on Yemen

Saudi grand mufti piggy asks money for war on Yemen

"The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism ... have nothing to do with Islam and (their proponents) are the enemy.
Saudi Arabia’s most influential religious and legal authority has asked followers as well as businesses to make financial donations to the kingdom’s ongoing war on Yemen.

Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al ash-Sheikh has urged adherents to raise money for troops stationed in the southwestern border regions of Najran, Asir and Jizan, characterizing their campaign as “a holy task.”

The grand mufti is known for issuing highly controversial fatwas. In June, ash-Sheikh exempted all troops waging the war on Yemen from observing the religious obligation of fasting during Ramadan.

Fatwas issued by Saudi religious authorities are based on Wahhabism which sharply contradicts the essence of Islam. A main feature of the Wahhabi ideology is Takfirism which is practiced by violent radical groups such as Daesh.

Some of the Wahhabi fatwas include allowing men to divorce their wives by only texting them, banning fathers and daughters from staying at the house at the same time, ruling that female sheep be buried alive, and forbidding seat belts under the pretext that they get in the way of fate.

Yemen has been under Saudi attacks almost on a daily basis since March 2015. The onslaught has killed thousands of civilians and destroyed Yemen’s civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, schools, and factories.

On Thursday, Yemeni snipers shot and killed a Saudi border guard at the Qaim Zubaid military camp in the Jizan region, located 967 kilometers (601 miles) southwest of Riyadh.

Yemeni forces and allied fighters from Popular Committees also fired a barrage of rockets at a position of Saudi-backed militias in Khabb ash-Sha’af district of the al-Jawf province, with no immediate reports of casualties.

The attacks came a day after Yemeni snipers fatally shot a Saudi border guards at the Jalah military camp in Jizan.

Yemeni forces also destroyed an M1 Abrams battle tank and a Bradley military vehicle at the Ramih military camp in the region on Wednesday.

The Saudi war was launched in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to reinstate former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi to power.

Acceptable Losses

Just a few short years ago, Yemen was judged to be among the poorest countries in the world, ranking 154th out of the 187 nations on the U.N.’s Human Development Index. One in every five Yemenis went hungry. Almost one in three was unemployed. Every year, 40,000 children died before their fifth birthday, and experts predicted the country would soon run out of water.

Such was the dire condition of the country before Saudi Arabia unleashed a bombing campaign in March 2015, which has destroyed warehouses, factories, power plants, ports, hospitals, water tanks, gas stations, and bridges, along with miscellaneous targets ranging from donkey carts to wedding parties to archaeological monuments. Thousands of civilians — no one knows how many — have been killed or wounded. Along with the bombing, the Saudis have enforced a blockade, cutting off supplies of food, fuel, and medicine. A year and a half into the war, the health system has largely broken down, and much of the country is on the brink of starvation.

This rain of destruction was made possible by the material and moral support of the United States, which supplied most of the bombers, bombs, and missiles required for the aerial onslaught. (Admittedly, the United Kingdom, France, and other NATO arms exporters eagerly did their bit.) U.S. Navy ships aided the blockade. But no one that I talked to in Washington suggested that the war was in any way necessary to our national security. The best answer I got came from Ted Lieu, a Democratic congressman from California who has been one of the few public officials to speak out about the devastation we were enabling far away. “Honestly,” he told me, “I think it’s because Saudi Arabia asked.”

CAIRO, EGYPT (9:00 A.M.) - The Egyptian Air Force has reportedly withdrawn from the Saudi-led Coalition of countries attacking Yemen after a 12 month-long operation,.

According to locals in Cairo, this move by the Egyptian government comes just hours after the Egyptian Intelligence Chief met with his Syrian counterpart.

No formal announcement has been issued by the Egyptian government to corroborate these reports; however, if true, Saudi Arabia will lose a key ally in this bombing campaign against the Yemeni people. ... n-reports/

"If there is some trouble, war, disease, heads getting chopped or young men killing in the name of the of Islam , you can bet your money it is those medieval imbeciles apes, wahabbi saudi rodents behind it.... The sewage of human waste!!! "

Ron Paul Asks "Why Are We Helping Saudi Arabia Destroy Yemen?"

It’s remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored.

A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us “how things got so bad” explains to us that, “it's a complicated story” involving “warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.”

No, Washington Post, it’s simpler than that. The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country. It started with the “Arab Spring” which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015’s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to re-install Riyadh’s preferred leader. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk as starvation and cholera rage.

We are told that US foreign policy should reflect American values. So how can Washington support Saudi Arabia – a tyrannical state with one of the worst human rights record on earth – as it commits by what any measure is a genocide against the Yemeni people? The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs warned just last week that Yemen faces "the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims." The Red Cross has just estimated that a million people are vulnerable in the cholera epidemic that rages through Yemen.

And why is there a cholera epidemic? Because the Saudi government – with US support – has blocked every port of entry to prevent critical medicine from reaching suffering Yemenis. This is not a war. It is cruel murder.

The United States is backing Saudi aggression against Yemen by cooperating in every way with the Saudi military. Targeting, intelligence, weapons sales, and more. The US is a partner in Saudi Arabia’s Yemen crimes.

Does holding hands with Saudi Arabia as it slaughters Yemeni children really reflect American values? Is anyone even paying attention?

The claim that we are fighting al-Qaeda in Yemen and thus our involvement is covered under the post-9/11 authorization for the use of force is without merit. In fact it has been reported numerous times in the mainstream media that US intervention on behalf of the Saudis in Yemen is actually a boost to al-Qaeda in the country. Al-Qaeda is at war with the Houthis who had taken control of much of the country because the Houthis practice a form of Shi’a Islam they claim is tied to Iran. We are fighting on the same side as al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Adding insult to injury, the US Congress can’t be bothered to even question how we got so involved in a war that has nothing to do with us. A few conscientious Members of Congress got together recently to introduce a special motion under the 1973 War Powers Act that would have required a vote on our continued military involvement in the Yemen genocide. The leadership of both parties joined together to destroy this attempt to at least get a vote on US aggression against Yemen. As it turns out, the only Members to vote against this shamefully gutted resolution were the original Members who introduced it. This is bipartisanship at its worst.

US involvement in Saudi Arabia’s crimes against Yemen is a national disgrace. That the mainstream media fails to accurately cover this genocide is shameful. Let us join our voices now to demand that our US Representatives end US involvement in Yemen immediately! ... troy-yemen

"What did the Yemeni people do to deserve this?"

The US-Saudi Starvation Blockade

Our aim is to “starve the whole population — men, women, and children, old and young, wounded and sound — into submission,” said First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill.

He was speaking of Germany at the outset of the Great War of 1914-1918. Americans denounced as inhumane this starvation blockade that would eventually take the lives of a million German civilians.

Yet when we went to war in 1917, a U.S. admiral told British Prime Minister Lloyd George, “You will find that it will take us only two months to become as great criminals as you are.”

After the Armistice of Nov. 11, 1918, however, the starvation blockade was not lifted until Germany capitulated to all Allied demands in the Treaty of Versailles.

As late as March 1919, four months after the Germans laid down their arms, Churchill arose in Parliament to exult, “We are enforcing the blockade with rigor, and Germany is very near starvation.”

So grave were conditions in Germany that Gen. Sir Herbert Plumer protested to Lloyd George in Paris that morale among his troops on the Rhine was sinking from seeing “hordes of skinny and bloated children pawing over the offal from British cantonments.”

The starvation blockade was a war crime and a crime against humanity. But the horrors of the Second World War made people forget this milestone on the Western road to barbarism.

A comparable crime is being committed today against the poorest people in the Arab world — and with the complicity of the United States.

Have something to say about this column?
Visit Pat's FaceBook page and post your comments….

Saudi Arabia, which attacked and invaded Yemen in 2015 after Houthi rebels dumped over a pro-Saudi regime in Sanaa and overran much of the country, has imposed a land, sea and air blockade, after the Houthis fired a missile at Riyadh this month that was shot down.

The Saudis say it was an Iranian missile, fired with the aid of Hezbollah, and an “act of war” against the kingdom. The Houthis admit to firing the missile, but all three deny Iran and Hezbollah had any role.

Whatever the facts of the attack, what the Saudis, with U.S. support, are doing today with this total blockade of that impoverished country appears to be both inhumane and indefensible.

Almost 90 percent of Yemen’s food, fuel and medicine is imported, and these imports are being cut off. The largest cities under Houthi control, the port of Hodaida and Sanaa, the capital, have lost access to drinking water because the fuel needed to purify the water is not there.

Thousands have died of cholera. Hundreds of thousands are at risk. Children are in danger from a diphtheria epidemic. Critical drugs and medicines have stopped coming in, a death sentence for diabetics and cancer patients.

If airfields and ports under Houthi control are not allowed to open and the necessities of life and humanitarian aid are not allowed to flow in, the Yemenis face famine and starvation.

What did these people do to deserve this? What did they do to us that we would assist the Saudis in doing this to them?

The Houthis are not al-Qaida or ISIS. Those are Sunni terrorist groups, and the Houthis detest them.

Is this now the American way of war? Are we Americans, this Thanksgiving and Christmas, prepared to collude in a human rights catastrophe that will engender a hatred of us among generations of Yemeni and stain the name of our country?

Saudis argue that the specter of starvation will turn the Yemeni people against the rebels and force the Houthi to submit. But what if the policy fails. What if the Houthis, who have held the northern half of the country for more than two years, do not yield? What then?

Are we willing to play passive observer as thousands and then tens of thousands of innocent civilians — the old, sick, weak, and infants and toddlers first — die from a starvation blockade supported by the mighty United States of America?

Without U.S. targeting and refueling, Saudi planes could not attack the Houthis effectively and Riyadh could not win this war. But when did Congress authorize this war on a nation that never attacked us?

President Obama first approved U.S. support for the Saudi war effort. President Trump has continued the Obama policy, and the war in Yemen has now become his war, and his human rights catastrophe.

Yemen today is arguably the worst humanitarian crisis on earth, and America’s role in it is undeniable and indispensable.

If the United States were to tell Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that we were no longer going to support his war in Yemen, the Saudis would have to accept the reality that they have lost this war.

Indeed, given Riyadh’s failure in the Syria civil war, its failure to discipline rebellious Qatar, its stalemated war and human rights disaster in Yemen, Trump might take a hard second look at the Sunni monarchy that is the pillar of U.S. policy in the Persian Gulf. ... ade-127888

Who Killed Yemen's Former President Ali Abdullah Saleh?

Yemen took front pages and headlines around the world this week not because of the genocide that has been taking place for the past two and a half years, or the famine, or the rising number of deaths as a result of the outbreak of Cholera and Diphtheria due to the continuous Saudi blockade on the country, but because an old page in Yemen’s history has been folded for good. The "historic" Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh ended up drowning in his blood after fleeing the failure of his coup against his own allies Ansarullah.

Ali Abdullah Saleh dominated the political life of his country for close to four decades. He was president for 33 years and survived the 2011 upheavals that rocked the Arab world, stepping down after political negotiations while tyrants elsewhere were cast out or killed. He later reemerged, allying himself to a resistance that ousted the weak Saudi-backed government that had replaced him, and became a key player in the Saudi relentless war that has ravaged Yemen for almost the past three years.

Many questions and scenarios surfaced after the killing of a "man of all phases", ranging from partisan and tribal reactions to the political and military situation, to the reading of Riyadh and Abu Dhabi for the loss of a new "proxy" battle with Ansarullah.

Yesterday, the once man of all trades emerged from the political arena, which he had memorized its corridors and moved from one level to another in a sneaky way, he emerged as a blood-stained body mounted on a blanket.

It was “The End”, declared the leader of Ansarullah Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, a blow to “the forces of aggression and the Al Saud regime, and the US and Britain behind them”, while he addressed the Yemenis yesterday making it clear to the Saudis and their allies that their “aggression is a failure” and that “it won’t get them anywhere" in Yemen.

The 75-year-old ousted president was apparently killed on Monday by Tribes allegiant to the Ansarullah Resistance Movement. Though the circumstances of his death were not clear, some reports suggested he attempted to flee the capital, Sanaa, but was stopped and killed at one of the checkpoints outside Sanaa.

The ultimate question that so far no one has been able to answer is: what was it that changed the rules of the game and made Saleh switch sides to begin with leading up to his death?

Well as reported yesterday by Iranian researcher Dr. Mohamed Sadiq al-Husseini, Saleh was being prepared to lead a coup against the supporters of Ansarullah for his return to the Yemeni scene and eventually install his son Ahmed, who is based in the UAE, as Yemen’s president under the patronage of the UAE.

In the details of this coup, Hussieni reported that the coup against Ansarullah began about eight months ago. Mohammed Ben Zayed, General Shaul Mofaz, former Israeli War Minister, Mohammed Dahlan, former Fatah Central Committee member, and Ahmad Ali Abdullah Saleh, the son of the slain Yemeni president, were all involved in the planning. The planning of the operation was initiated in Abu Dhabi, where the coup plan was penned by Mohammed bin Zayed. After that, the headquarters of the meetings was transferred to the island of Socotra, which was sold by the ousted Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi to the Emiratis. A total of nine meetings were held on the island, involving UAE officers deployed in southern Yemen and Israeli officers recommended by Shaul Mofaz.

Husseini continued, that as part of the plan, it was decided to train 1,200 close associates of Ali Abdullah Saleh in the camps of the UAE forces in the city of Aden to be the leading forces for those to be later recruited and trained in Sanaa and its environs, which will then be responsible for carrying out the coup d'état.

And then it began, funds were allocated to cover the training costs of a total of 6,000 of Saleh’s men in Sanaa and its environs under the umbrella of training for the reinforcement of fronts. Mohammed bin Zayed's operations room transferred a total of 289 million USD from Aden to Sanaa through intermediaries of Ali Abdullah Saleh's relatives between February and June 2017. In addition, 100 million USD were transferred to Saleh between August 2017 and the end of October 2017.

The coup was supposed to be carried out on the 24th of August, but the UAE and Israeli officers postponed the operation to a later date for two reasons: first, the lack of readiness of Saleh's forces, and second was Ansarullah supporters discovering the coup plan and controlling all entrances to the capital and its perimeter tightly.

A new decision was taken by the coup planners to arm and train the total of 8,000 fighters in Sanaa and its surroundings. The mission was entrusted to local smugglers, along with 16 supply experts from ISIS who had been transferred from Iraq to the Sheikh Osman area of ​​Aden earlier this year as well as four former Israeli officers who had entered the Aden area with the help of the Emiratis.

According to Ansarullah supporters, weapons were covertly stored in 49 different secret points in Sanaa, as per a specific mobilization plan that depends on the distribution of weapons to individuals to be deployed in the city at zero hour determined by the military operations room to certify the element of surprise and to secure speed of decisiveness when starting to move against the supporters of Ansarullah in the capital Sanaa. This plan did eventually work from a military technical point of view late last week, which made Ali Abdullah Saleh refuse to make any concessions to Ansarullah until the night of December 3rd, as he believed he had enough weapons and gunmen to control Sanaa within a maximum of six hours but eventually failed.

When the leadership of the Ansarullah movement realized that the negotiations with Saleh will not work, they informed the mediators that they can guarantee a safe exit for Ali Abdullah Saleh in exchange for ending the coup, warning that if he did not agree, they would resolve the situation militarily and control Sanaa and its surroundings within three hours, which is what happened between the 2nd and 3rd of December 2017.

After the situation was completely resolved in Sanaa by Ansarullah, Ali Abdullah Saleh was forced to flee outside the capital. This was done in coordination with the UAE through his son, where the coalition warplanes escorted his motorcade, consisting of three armored vehicles. The convoy also included six four-wheel-drive vehicles equipped with 23 mm machine guns and two Toyota Pickups with 37 mm machine guns.

Lebanese based Al Mayadeen TV channel reported that 11 checkpoints were bombed by the coalition warplanes to secure a passage way for Saleh to flee from Sanaa.

This led to an exchange of fire at one of the checkpoints in Sayyan south of Yemen with Ansarullah supporters. The coalition aircraft bombed the site of the clash to prevent Ansarullah fighters from arresting Ali Abdullah Saleh alive so as not to reveal the details of the plot carried out in coordination with the UAE, the Saudis and the Israelis.

Hence, the decision to terminate Ali Abdullah Saleh was taken by the leadership of the coalition to cover up direct military and security cooperation with Israel in order to take control over the capital Sanaa. ... saleh.html
