On The 2nd Anniversary Of Saudi Arabia’s Aggression, Heroic Yemenis March In Their Millions To Condemn War & Siege

by Jonathan Azaziah

Yesterday witnessed one of the largest antiwar, anti-Saudi demonstrations in history as MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of Yemenis converged on the city blocks of their capital city Sanaa to mark 2 years of war, siege and ruin at the hands of the House of Saud. The murderous tyrants in Riyadh have launched around 90,000 air strikes on the people of Yemen since March 26th, 2015. They’ve murdered over 15,000 Yemenis and wounded tens of thousands more. And thanks to their all-out, air-land-and-sea blockade on the the whole of Yemen–a blockade mind you that is being assisted in full by ‘Israel’ and all major Western states, including America, Canada, the UK and France–more than 17 million Yemenis are either starving or “food insecure”, i.e. on the brink of starvation. What we are witnessing here in the poorest state in the Arab world (and among the poorest states in the entire Islamic world) is the greatest humanitarian crisis on Earth today and a crime against humanity that runs parallel to what Empire Zionica did to Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

BUT STILL THE YEMENI PEOPLE REBUKE DYING IN FAVOR OF SKYING. Indeed, this is what is most remarkable of all. So much death and destruction, chaos and carnage, horror and spilled hemoglobin all around them but the lions and lionesses of Yemen march and chant the slogan inaugurated by Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.) like there is no tomorrow: “God is Great! Death to America! Death to ‘Israel’! Curse be on the Jews! Victory to Islam!” This scream of defiance echoes in the demonic brains of the GCC tyrants and their Zio-Imperialist controllers in “Tel Aviv” and Washington. Valiant and steadfast, Yemen wills itself out of the jaws of oblivion time and time again to raise the banner of resistance to Heaven’s rafters. You would think with so much suffering permeating Yemeni society, the Yemeni Islamic Resistance would have been long defeated by now but the opposite is in fact true.

730 days of war and Ansarullah’s missile-firing capabilities are stronger than ever, their maneuverability is stronger than ever, their morale is higher than ever, all of its commanders and leaders remain touched and their popularity is through the roof. Dönmeh Al-Saud on the other hand is spending so much money it has had to take austerity measures on the “home front”–quotations apply because Arabia/Al-Hijaz does not belong to the Saudi “royals” but rather is occupied by them–it has seen the UAE, Academi and Dyncorp driven from Yemen in humiliation, its casualties are over 10,000 and it has lost territory in Jizan, Asir and Najran. The toll Saudi Arabia’s invasion has taken on Yemenis is catastrophic no doubt, and immediate humanitarian assistance is required, but in asymmetrical terms, Ansarullah has already achieved total victory over the despotic Wahhabi enemy and this is a triumph to be celebrated for all-time. Yes, the great Egyptian revolutionary Gamal Abdel Nasser (R.A.) helped inflict defeat on Saudi Arabia in the 60s, also in Yemen coincidentally enough, but that was a proxy fight. What the Houthis have accomplished is unprecedented in the two centuries that Al-Saud has wreaked havoc on the land where Islam was born.

Notice the sea of Yemeni flags in the absolutely epic protest. Men, women, children, elderly, disabled, civilians, politicians, clerics, moujahideen and soldiers were all present. Sunnis, Shi’a and Sufis too. This was the embodiment of everything Yemen is and everything that Al-Saud failed to transmogrify Yemen into. A unified state and an even more unified society standing as one to combat a most wretched enemy. The vile tactics of divide and rule did not (and will not) work in Yemen. The usurping Zionist entity’s dream of controlling Bab el-Mandeb and implementing the ethno-sectarian regime laid out in Oded Yinon’s “A Strategy For ‘Israel’ In The 1980s” has flopped on its hideous, six-pointed-star-encrusted face. And most tellingly, despite the fact that there were millions on the street, that Saudi Arabia’s crimes against humanity are certified and verified, that Western ZOGs are complicit in this genocide and that ‘Israel’ is the strategic mastermind of all of it, the mainstream media was nowhere to be found, instead choosing to report about a few thousand Soros-paid, NED-controlled stooges chanting against Vladimir Putin on the streets of Moscow. Zio-MSM has been the central cog in the war machine against Syria and the same can be said for Yemen. The complicity (and duplicity) of these agents of deception is truly unique to this epoch.

With the “Arab” petrodollar monarchies led by Saudi Arabia against them, the global press lying about them or ignoring them, “The Ummah” brainwashed and apathetic towards them and nobody but Iran, the Syrian Arab Republic, Hizbullah, Sheikh Zakzaky of Nigeria and a handful of REAL activists scattered across the world speaking up in defense of them, Yemenis remain unbroken and upright two years into this Zionist-planned aggression. May peace return to their ancient civilization soon. ALLAH (SWT) knows they need it and deserve it after delivering blow after blow to the Takfiri Kingdom of Darkness on behalf of every single living, breathing creature on this planet. Striking Star Salute o’ Yemenis! The people of Mouqawamah are forever in awe of you! And history will remember you as CHAMPIONS! #LongLiveYemen #LongLiveAnsarullah #DeathToSaud

U.S. To Escalate Its Two Years War On Starving Yemen

Source


bigger source drone video

The picture shows yesterday’s rally in Sanaa,Yemen where up to 1 million people were condemning the war Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and the U.S. have been waging on them for two years.

Nether the New York Times nor the Washington Post reported of the million strong rally. Both though reported widely of a 8,000 strong demonstration in Moscow led by the ultra-nationalist anti-semitic racist Alexey Navalny (vid). Navalny, who polls less than 1% in Russia, is their great and groundless hope to replace the Russian President Putin.

The war on Yemen was launched to show the manliness of the Saudi princes. Well, that may not be the proclaimed reason but it is the only one that makes sense. The U.S. takes part in the war because … well – no one knows:

The morning after that NSC news release was posted on the White House webpage two years ago, Gen. Lloyd J. Austin, commander of the U.S. Central Command, was asked about the objectives of the U.S. support. His stunning reply remains the most accurate characterization from a U.S. official: “I don’t currently know the specific goals and objectives of the Saudi campaign, and I would have to know that to be able to assess the likelihood of success.” Other than dropping weapons with an unconscionable lack of discrimination and proportionality, it appears there are no clear goals and objectives to this day.

The Saudis claim their coalition has dropped 90,000 bombs during the two year war. That are 123 bombs per day. 5 each and every hour for no good reason. It hasn’t helped them at all. The Houthi/Saleh alliance the Saudis fight claims (vid) to have destroyed 176 AFVs, 643 MRAPs, 147 MBTs, 12 Apaches, 20 drones, 4 aircraft. Additionally 109 tactical ballistic missiles were fired. Many of those (certainly exaggerated) Houth/Saleh successes happened on Saudi ground. Its southern desert does not protect Saudi Arabia, it opens it up to attacks.

The U.S. provides planning, intelligence, air-refueling and the ammunition for the Saudi bombing. Without U.S. support this war would not happen at all!

The United Nation claims that the death toll of the war is a mere 5,000. Others speak of 7-8,000. These numbers are laughable. One Saudi attack alone, a “double tap” on a Sanaa funeral hall, killed more than 800. The real death toll of the war is by now likely beyond 100,000. Especially in north-west Yemen, along the Saudi border, each and every Yemeni town and city has been bombed into ruins. Where are the people who once lived there?

The Saudis have simply threatened the UN that they will stop to provide any money for any of its relief efforts should it it make any noise. The UN folded.

Yemen is starving. Even before the war 90% of Yemen’s staple food was imported. The Saudis have since bombed each and every food production facility, chicken farm and port. All larger bridges have been cut. There is no longer any way to import food into the capital Sanaa and the other areas the Saudis besiege. Too small official relief efforts are still running through the Hodeida port on the western coast. The port itself is controlled by the Houthi/Saudi alliance the Saudi want to eliminate. But the port is blockaded from the water side. The Saudis navy and airforce destroys all ship who try to enter or leave it. Some official relief ships are allowed to pass but they have difficulties to unload. All large cranes in the harbor have been destroyed by air attacks.

Still – to deliberately starve off all of the 17 million Yemenis who are “food insecure”, i.e. extremely hungry and nearly starved, the port needs to be closed down for good. That is why the UAE and the Saudi plan to invade, conquer and occupy it. The fighting about the port will be a good excuse to close it down for good until no one in Sanaa is left alive.

The Pentagon is now requesting a free hand to help the Saudis to conquer and occupy the Hodeida harbor. Why the U.S. would do this? Well – the reason is at least as good as the one given two years ago:

[I]f decisions are not made soon, the senior administration official said, “we’re afraid the situation” in Yemen may escalate, “and our partners may take action regardless. And we won’t have visibility, and we won’t be in a position to understand what it does to our counterterrorism operations.”

So if the U.S. does not “help” (i.e. organizes) to close down the last source of food for the millions besieged by the Saudis then it may not be able to understand what that means.

Now there is a really good reason to put boots on the ground! “Unless we do it, we will not know the consequences and that is something we would want to know, right?”

Sayyed Houthi: Saudi Aggression on Yemen A Failure

March 26, 2017

Sayyed Houthi

The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionary movement, Sayyed  Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, stressed on Saturday that Saudi Arabia has not reached any of its goals despite its relentless attacks against its impoverished neighbor.

Speaking during a speech marking the second year anniversary of the brutal aggression by Riyadh, Sayyed Houthi assured that targeting Yemenis is a part of a scheme aimed at targeting the Muslim Ummah (nation).

He stressed that the Saudi aggression on Yemen serves the Israeli enemy’s interests because Tel Aviv looks to the Yemeni people as an obstacle in face of its schemes.

“Yemeni people reject US hegemony as they show hositility to the Zionist entity and voice support to the Palestinian cause,” Sayyed Houthi said in a televised speech.

Meanwhile, Ansarullah leader stressed that the kingdom’s almost daily airstrikes against civilians in Yemen are nothing short of war crimes.

He noted that the Saudis, backed by several regional and international countries, were using some of the most lethal armaments against the people in Yemen.

Sayyed Houthi also slammed Saudi Arabia’s constant destruction of Yemeni infrastructures such as schools and hospitals.

He praised the people of Yemen for their resilience and for safeguarding the country’s dignity.

Yemen has been under an aggression by Saudi-led coalition since March 2015. The brutal aggression has killed and injured tens of thousands of Yemenis, the vast majority of them were civilians.

Yemen ports and airports have been also under a blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition, which also includes UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.

Yemen’s Legal Center of Rights and Development announced on Saturday that the Saudi campaign has claimed the lives of over 12,040 Yemenis and left more than 20,000 others wounded.

The center added that there were a total of 2,568 children and 1,870 women among the fatalities, noting that the atrocious onslaught had also destroyed 757 schools and institutes, 111 university facilities, 271 factories besides 1,520 bridges and roads.

PRESS RELEASE


Yemen: 17 Million People Threatened with Starvation by Saudi War

March 23, 2017 (EIRNS)—U.N. aid agencies are warning that Yemen is “at the point of no return” as some 17 million people (out of a total population of 28 million) are facing severe food shortages. A total of 6.8 million people are deemed to be in a state of emergency one step from famine on the five-point integrated food security phase classification (IPC), the standard international measure—with a further 10.2 million in crisis, reports the Guardian. Taiz and Hodeidah governorates, home to almost 25% of Yemen’s population and the scene of intense conflict since the outbreak of civil war in 2015, are at particularly heightened risk of famine. “We keep on talking about a country that’s on the brink of famine, but for me these numbers highlight that we’re at the point of no return,” said Mark Kaye, Save the Children’s Yemen spokesperson.

“If things are not done now we are going to be looking back on this and millions of children will have starved to death, and we’ll all have been aware of this for some time.”

According to the Guardian, the Saudi excuse for not opening the ports, particularly the Red Sea port of Hodeidah, where 80 percent of Yemen’s food imports entered the country prior to the war, is to keep Iranian arms out. “They are using the port as a military base to import guns, and rockets,” one Saudi source said, though no evidence of this has been presented. In any case, the complaint about Iranian arms becomes an excuse to allow millions of Yemenis to starve to death, deaths that could otherwise easily be prevented.

A U.S. News/Al-Monitor article from two years ago, when the Saudis began their aggression with Obama’s support, shows that the same legislators who are now leading the chorus of fake-news attacks against the President, were then in the lead for this genocidal war. Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) issued a joint statement which said,

“Saudi Arabia and our Arab partners deserve our support as they seek to restore order in Yemen, which has collapsed into civil war…. We understand why our Saudi and other Arab partners felt compelled to take action. The prospect of radical groups like Al-Qaeda, as well as Iranian-backed militants, finding safe haven on the border of Saudi Arabia was more than our Arab partners could withstand.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said the Obama Administration had “made the right decision” in supporting the Saudi war.

Increase in Infant deformities in Yemen suggests USA/UK has supplied Saudi with depleted uranium weapons

Doctors in Yemen have been warning about the rise in stillbirths and deformities as a result of the war for some time.

“Fetal malformations could occur due to several reasons, including mothers’ diseases and subsequent viral infection of the faction and/or poor nutrition,” Wafa al-Mamari, an obstetrician at al-Rahma Hospital in northern Sana’a, told Press TV in July.

“The strange thing is that the rate of fetal abnormalities is growing and doctors cannot explain the causes, meaning that the phenomenon could be attributed to war and ordinances, given the fact that a great proportion of women with deformed fetuses hailed from bombarded areas in the provinces of Sa’adah, Sana’a, Ta’izz and Hudaydah,” she said.

Yemen is suffering a humanitarian crisis as the two-year conflict continues between a Saudi-led coalition and the Houthi rebels. The people of Yemen are at the brink of famine, with food and aid supplies cut off and almost seven million being pushed towards starvation, Oxfam warned in its latest release.

The UN estimates at least 10,000 civilian casualties have occurred since March 2015, when Saudi Arabia began bombing the country in support of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, who fled Yemen in 2015. The bombardment began to remove the Houthi rebels from the capital, which they had captured in 2014.

On Thursday, Amnesty International again condemned both the US and the UK for supplying arms to Saudi Arabia which have been used to kill civilians. Both countries provide intelligence and logistic support to Saudi Arabia and have, according to Amnesty, sold more than $5 billion in weapons to the kingdom in the last two years

Yemen war: More than half of British people unaware of ongoing conflict seeing UK weapons deployed by Saudis

More than half of British people are unaware of the “forgotten war” underway in Yemen, despite the Government’s support for a military coalition accused of killing thousands of civilians.

A YouGov poll seen exclusively by The Independent showed 49 per cent of people knew of the country’s ongoing civil war, which has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced three million more and left 14 million facing starvation.

The figure was even lower for the 18 to 24 age group, where only 37 per cent were aware of the Yemen conflict as it enters its third year of bloodshed.

More than 2,100 people were given a list of 16 countries and asked to identify any “currently involved in an ongoing armed conflict” for the research, with 84 per cent naming the Syrian civil war.

The Human Appeal, a Manchester-based charity that commissioned the poll, warned a lack of international awareness was worsening a worsening humanitarian crisis in the Yemen.

“The crisis in Yemen has been forgotten about or ignored completely,” said CEO Othman Moqbel.

“We believe this is because that the conflict has not generated a huge amount of refugees coming to Europe and there is the misperception amongst the public that it’s only a regional crisis.

“To treat what is currently happening in Yemen, and has been happening for two years, as something insignificant is turning a blind eye to the escalating humanitarian emergency.”

At least 75 people are estimated to be killed or injured every day in the conflict, which has pushed the country to the brink of famine as 14 million people lack a stable access to food.

Almost 3,800 civilians have been killed by the conflict, where President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi’s government is fighting Houthi rebels and fighters loyal to the former President, President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The conflict started in March 2015 after an opposition offensive drove the government out of the capital Sana’a, sparking an intervention by Saudi Arabia and its allies to support the internationally recognised government.

The UN human rights office said the Saudi-led air campaign, seeing rebel-controlled areas heavily bombarded, was responsible for 60 per cent of civilian deaths – almost 2,300 lives.

British-manufactured weapons, including cluster bombs, have been used in the strikes, despite calls by MPs to suspend sales to Saudi Arabia over war crimes allegations.

Peter Salisbury, a senior research fellow in the Middle East and North Africa programme at Chatham House, said Britain was the principal sponsor of a UN Security Council resolution used by Saudi Arabia to justify its intervention.

“The UK is also a huge arms supplier and provides a great deal of logistical support to Saudi forces,” he told The Independent.

“Arguably the UK has also given political coverage to the Saudis by preventing various resolutions and investigations from happening.”

Mr Salisbury said that while opposing the attempted coup in Yemen, the British Government was “quiet” about the military overthrowing Egypt’s elected government in 2013.

“The decision was made that Yemen was a ‘bad coup’,” he added. “And that in many ways comes down to where allies sit.”

Iran supports Houthi forces in Yemen, with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf allies supporting the Hadi government.

As battles continue, the Human Appeal is among international charities attempting to provide aid to Yemen’s impoverished population.

It has provided food parcels to thousands of families, clean drinking water for 37,500 people, blankets, clothing and healthcare projects including supporting the Al Jumhori public hospital.

Hundreds of Somali refugees who originally fled conflict in their home country are among those caught up in the violence in Yemen, with more than 40 massacred by a helicopter gunship as they attempted to flee on a boat on Thursday night.

While the humanitarian situation deteriorates, the conflict has largely reached a stalemate, with rebels controlling much of densely populated western Yemen, the Hadi government in the centre and east and pockets of territory held by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsuala (AQAP), Islamist militias and Isis.

But the UN Refugee Agency has warned of intensified hostilities in recent weeks, forcing more than 62,000 people from their homes in western and central Yemen, who are now sleeping in public buildings, tents, on the streets or in ruined buildings.

Calling Yemen a “forgotten war”, Mr Salisbury said neither a peaceful resolution nor an outright victory for any party was likely in the near future.

“The Trump presidency could see US play a more decisive role,” he added, although American forces have mainly been targeting AQAP terrorists, including in a botched raid that killed dozens of civilians earlier this year.

“Yemen is not an island, it is connected to other countries and the rest of the world and we’re seeing this massive growth in sectarian violence.

“All of these things have long-tern consequences for countries outside of Yemen.”

The British Government stresses that although it the Saudi-led intervention “to deter aggression by the Houthis and allow for the return of the legitimate Yemeni Government”, it is not part of the coalition.

“British personnel are not involved in carrying out strikes, directing or conducting operations in Yemen, nor involved in the Saudi targeting decision-making process,” a spokesperson for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office told The Independent

“Peace talks are the top priority. The UK has played a leading role in diplomatic efforts, including bringing together key international actors to try and find a peaceful solution.”

The UK is the fourth largest donor to Yemen, committing £103 million in humanitarian aid last year.
