US, I$raHell two sides of same coin, trying to destroy Yemen

NOVANEWS

Leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, speaks during a televised speech in Sa’ada, on April 23, 2017.

Leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, says the United States and the I$raHell regime are two sides of the same coin and together they seek to destroy Yemen through a brutal military campaign launched by Saudi Arabia.

Addressing a group of Yemenis in Sa’ada, thorough a video conference, Houthi further said on Sunday that the US, I$raHell and their allies are trying to impose their values on regional nations, adding that enemies view Yemenis as a worthless tool to sustain their own interests in the region.

“Independent forces in the region from Yemen to Syria, Lebanon and Iraq are considered as rogue from the American perspective, and sympathy for the oppressed in these countries is viewed as a crime,” he said, adding that Washington is trying hard to turn regional players into its own puppets.

The Yemeni leader also noted that collusion in the atrocities committed against the Yemeni people is not an issue in the eyes of the American leaders, but when the oppressed and independent forces cooperate with each other, the US perceives it as a crime.

He called on all Yemenis to stand united against the aggressors and defend their country.

“[When] anyone says Israel is a threat to our nation, the United States and its allies say they are supporters of Iran, and with the help of this false justification, they (Washington and allies) target anyone that does not accept adopting a hostile attitude towards Iran,”  he added.

He also said the only sin committed by Iran, from the perspective of the United States, was that it freed itself from being a puppet country in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

‘US, Israel main source of terrorism worldwide’

The Yemeni leader added that Washington considers regional or international threats all those countries that are not its ally, “but the reality is that the US and Israel are themselves the main source of terrorism worldwide.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, Houthi said the Yemeni nation, from all walks of life, should boost their awareness of the realities of regional developments and use it as a tool to battle the US propaganda against the Arab country. Ignorance, he said, makes people an easy target for the US and the Zionists.

Houthi also stated that only Yemenis can decide about their future and the internal affairs of their country and that absolutely no other country or organization, even the United Nations and the Arab League, can impose their so-called solutions to the crisis in Yemen.

He described as utterly ridiculous Washington and Riyadh’s claim that they want to liberate Yemeni cities from “Yemeni occupation.”

“You are Yemenis, who have occupied the capital Sana’a? The US wants to liberate Sana’a from Yemenis?!” he asked.

Houthi reiterated that the Yemeni nation’s resistance against the Riyadh regime’s incessant attacks was deeply rooted in religious orders and was meant to safeguard national sovereignty and freedom.

Saudi Arabia launched its deadly campaign against Yemen in March 2015 to push back the Houthi Ansarullah fighters from Sana’a and to bring back to power Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, Yemen’s president who has resigned and is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

The campaign, which lacks any international mandate and has faced increasing criticism, has claimed the lives of more than 12,000 people, most of them civilians.

Certain Arab countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar, are partners to the military aggression.

Trump Wants Regime Change in Syria, Extended US Led Wars in Yemen, Afghanistan, South Sudan

NOVANEWS
 

In March 2011, Obama launched war on Syria to destroy its sovereignty and replace Assad with pro-Western puppet rule.

Trump upped the stakes. He escalated war, increased US terror-bombing, and doubled the number of US forces on the ground ahead of likely larger numbers coming.

His hugely dangerous war plan risks direct confrontation with Russia. Instead of governing responsibly, he’s recklessly risking possible nuclear war in the Middle East and on the Korean peninsula.

In northern Syria, hundreds of thousands of civilians are threatened by US terror-bombing – targeting infrastructure and government sites on the phony pretext of combating ISIS America created and supports.

On Monday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ spokesman Staphane Dujarric issued a briefing on catastrophic humanitarian conditions in Yemen, Mosul, Afghanistan, South Sudan, and the safety of over 400,000 Syrians in Raqqa.

Around 10 million Yemenis

“require immediate assistance to save or sustain their lives,” he stressed. The country is “the largest food security emergency in the world…on the brink of (catastrophic) famine.”

Fighting and terror-bombing of Mosul continues, up to 400,000 displaced so far – in desperate need of aid. The lives and welfare of around two million Iraqis are endangered by ongoing conflict. The civilian death toll keeps mounting.

“(D)etainees in Afghanistan continue to face torture and ill-treatment in government detention facilities.”

America’s longest war continues endlessly with no prospect for resolution.

In South Sudan,

“lack of accountability for crimes perpetrated during the conflict remains one of the country’s biggest challenges.”

Syrians in and around Raqqa are exposed to daily ground fighting and US-led terror-bombing – including against infrastructure, hospitals, schools, mosques, markets and residential areas.

Unknown numbers of civilians are being killed daily, perhaps thousands before the campaign ends.

According to Dujarric,

“(i)n past weeks, civilians have been exposed to daily fighting and airstrikes which resulted in an escalating number of civilian deaths and injuries…”

“Some 39,000 (were) newly displaced,” most in open areas without shelter or protection from fighting and bombing. Desperate people are without humanitarian aid.

Russia’s intervention in Syria improved conditions greatly for its people – liberated from hundreds of areas previously controlled by US-supported terrorists, provided with humanitarian aid by Moscow and Syria to sustain them.

Separately on Monday, the US Treasury Department announced sanctions on 271 Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center personnel – on the phony pretext of involvement in chemical weapons development.

Washington holds them responsible for developing the toxic agent used in Kahn Sheikhoun on April 4 – an incident  Syria had nothing to do with, a false flag irresponsibly blamed on its military and Bashar al-Assad.

Last Friday, Sergey Lavrov said Russia’s call for an independent, unbiased on-site investigation was “blocked by Western delegations without any explanations.”

“(O)bvious false information” is being used by America and its rogue allies to topple Assad – likely by escalated war, involving larger numbers of US forces.

US seeks political solution to Yemen conflict: Pentagon chief

Press TV 

US Defense Secretary James Mattis says the conflict in Yemen needs to be resolved “as quickly as possible” through UN-brokered peace negotiations.

“Our aim is that this crisis can be handed to a team of negotiators under the aegis of the United Nations that can try to find a political solution as quickly as possible,” Mattis told reporters on Tuesday as he flew to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

“We will work with our allies, with our partners to try to get it to the UN-brokered negotiating table,” the Pentagon chief said.

Mattis is expected to meet senior Saudi Zio-Wahhabi officials, including Zio-Wahhabi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Zio-Wahhabi Mohammed bin Salman.

Several UN brokered ceasefires and peace talks have so far failed to end the conflict in Yemen.

Mattis gave no details on what additional support, if any, the United States would provide to the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi led coalition. Washington already provides intelligence as well as aerial refueling to coalition warplanes carrying out air strikes in Yemen.

Human rights groups have repeatedly criticized the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi led bombing campaign in Yemen for causing civilian casualties. The campaign has claimed the lives of more than 12,000 people, most of them civilians.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime launched its deadly campaign against Yemen in March 2015 with the alleged goal of pushing back the Houthi Ansarullah movement from the capital, Sana’a, and to reinstate the regime of Yemen’s former CIA puppet, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Saudis Zio-Wahhabi regime and their allies have also suffered considerable casualties in the operation on Yemen as official estimates say more than 500 soldiers from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain have been killed since March 2015.

Some officials in US President Donald Trump’s administration have called for more American military support for the Saudi-led coalition.

In late January, US special forces carried out an attack against a purported position of al-Qaeda militants in the central Yemeni province of Bayda, killing about 30 civilians.

The raid, in which just about everything went wrong, was the first known American-led ground mission in Yemen since December 2014.

The White House hailed the operation as a success, but critics said it was a failure since it resulted in the death of civilians and 36-year-old Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.

The US military carried out a flurry of air strikes in Yemen after the botched raid, involving a mix of manned and unmanned aircraft.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has taken advantage of the chaos and breakdown of security in Yemen to tighten its grip on the southern and southeastern parts of the Arab country.

A Tale of Two Murdered Children & the Unending ‘WAR on TERROR’

NOVANEWS

anwar_awlaki-daughter1

You couldn’t really get a better – or more tragic – illustration than this of the continuity of agenda when it comes to US foreign policy and of how it doesn’t actually matter what administration happens to be in the White House.

It’s all about perspective, of course: but if you’re a child in Yemen, for example, it makes little difference to you whether you’re being murdered by US soldiers under a Donald Trump administration or by US soldiers under a Barack Obama or George W. Bush administration (or by Saudi airstrikes).

The striking story that illustrates this point came to my notice initially via the Free Thought Project, primarily citing Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept and the work of Jeremy Scahill: it involves two children from the same family, both having been murdered by American actions – one of them during the Obama administration and the other now in the Trump administration.

One of the new White House’s first acts in the manufactured War On Terror it has inherited from previous administrations was a raid in Yemen, targeting a compound that was claimed to have housed Al-Qaeda officials. Both President Trump and sections of the US media mourned the death of a SEAL Team member killed in the assault (who was hailed a ‘hero’ in that same strange way that Iraq War sniper/assassin Chris Kyle was): but most media outlets didn’t bother noting the women and children – as many as 10, according to on-the-ground reports in Yemen – also killed in the raid.

Official US military statements denied any civilian casualties at first, but even the largely anti-Trump media outlets either downplayed or entirely omitted reference to civilian deaths until days later. Even the Fake News, Anti-Trump CNN reports neglected to mention civilians.

Yemeni reports suggested that up to 30 people were killed, some of these being – presumably – Al-Qaeda-related individuals, others being civilians caught up in the situation.

And among those killed was the 8-year-old granddaughter (see here) of Nasser al-Awlaki. What was particularly striking – and illustrative – about this murder is that her (American) 16-year-old brother had also been previously killed by US military action in Yemen (under Obama).

Which perfectly illustrates the ‘continuity of agenda’ when it comes to foreign policy and military activity, which pre-dates and transcends party politics or the government of the day.

Award-winning investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill – who extensively interviewed the grandfather, Nasser al-Awlaki, in Yemen for his book and award-winning film Dirty Warsreported that the girl’s grandfather said she was “was shot in the neck and killed” and subsequently bled to death for two hours.

anwar_awlaki_granddaughter

If the child was shot in the neck, it rather rules out the popular notion (which video games and movies have helped desensitize people to) of “collateral damage” via drone strike (which happens a lot in Yemen, like this and this). This was an on-the-ground, face to face killing.

Not that the type of killing matters as much as the fact that innocent people are being killed: but Yemen is well used to this by now.

The United Nations’ humanitarian aid official in Yemen has recently announced that the civilian death toll since the start of the conflict two years ago has reached 10,000, and that some 10 million civilians are in need of ‘urgent assistance’.

Over a year ago, even at the point where it was being (under) reported that some half-a-million children in Yemen were starving and on the brink of death, US support for the Saudi-led bombing campaign and humanitarian blockade continued.

The UN has accused both sides of the conflict of having committed war crimes, but has also specified that the Saudi-led coalition has killed three times as many civilians as the Houthi rebels. Hundreds of millions of dollars worth of US weaponry is being used by Saudi-led forces in their Yemen campaign, despite some of President Obama’s scaling back of US arms support (due to the excessive civilian casualties). The US is also still providing logistical support.

Not that there is necessarily any ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ side in this conflict (though the sheer scale of the Saudi-led devastation serves to single them out as the worst perpetrator) – there appears to be no real ‘moral’ victor or cause, just a conflict of interests that has spiraled out of control – but it is the civilian population of the poorest country in the Middle East that has paid and is still paying the price.

Events like this SEAL Team 6 attack – and the very selective way in which they are reported – are also echoed across conflicts. This one is particularly reminiscent of three of Muammar Gaddafi’s infant grandchildren being wiped out in a NATO bombing in 2011, with no official statement or acknowledgement from NATO officials or Western leaders (with the implication therefore being that they were somehow legitimate targets).

The civilian deaths in an operation like this one could still be waved away as ‘collateral damage’: but we should also ask questions about who these people were carrying out the operation. Weeks ago, in a report for The Intercept, Matthew Cole characterised this SEAL Team (SEAL Team 6 – also known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group) as being notorious for engaging in “revenge ops, unjustified killings, mutilations, and other atrocities.”

There is a danger that this type of cut-throat special ops activity might prove to be something the current White House administration goes to as a first – and not a last – resort.

The presence in the Trump/Bannon circle, as previously reported, of the infamous Blackwater mercenary firm founder Erik Prince could indicate the kind of direction the new administration wants to go in. Prince got his hands bloody in both Iraq and Libya and he is now advising the Trump administration, as well as having his sister, Betsy DeVos, in Trump’s Cabinet.

It has been reported elsewhere recently that Trump’s hand-picked national security advisers (including Steve Bannon and, until recently, Michael Flynn) have been pushing him to lift or loosen current restrictions that are designed to minimise civilian casualties: the idea being that such ‘restrictions’ make tactical or military objectives more difficult than they should be.

_____________

How significant this raid was in ‘War On Terror’ terms is unclear; though of course Donald Trump and the White House spokesman have celebrated it as a great ‘victory’.

Of course, one of the key things that revealed to most intelligent observers that the ‘anti establishment’ aspect of the Trump campaign was a fraud is that – at no point – did Trump or anyone associated with Trump acknowledge the fraudulent nature and origins of the ‘War on Terror’.

In fact, if you track most ‘Alt-Right’ media, you will also note that those outlets too no longer talk about the War on Terror in terms of false-flag ops or manufactured crises but purely in terms of a ‘Clash of Civilisations’. Which suggests that they’re no longer interested in investigating or understanding 9/11, intelligence agency psy-ops and false-flags or the cultivation of jihadists and extremism as proxies for foreign policy objectives, but are firmly focused instead on creating or amplifying the divide-and-conquer meme instead.

yemen-civilians-poor

It is also a little perverse that the US-backed Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen has been perceived by some analysts to have actually strengthened Al-Qaeda’s position – something that I predicted would be the case as soon as the campaign started back in March 2015. As was noted back then, the Saudi assault against Houthi rebels in Yemen seemed to happen at a point where Al-Qaeda in Yemen were reportedly on the brink of defeat by Houthi-led forces.

In terms of this specific SEAL Team 6 assault, I’m not suggesting they didn’t genuinely take out some actual Al-Qaeda operatives or terrorists (or that the Obama administration wouldn’t have green-lit the exact same mission). But when we look at events like this – particularly when we look at the civilian cost in life – we have to look at it in its much broader context.

The 8-year-old girl murdered by SEAL Team 6 was the daughter of the notorious Anwar al-Awlaki.

Anwar al-Awlaki, the Al-Qaeda ‘figurehead’ (already assassinated by US drones in Yemen some years ago) who these latest killings center around, was long held to have been a US/CIA/Pentagon asset or agent in the Cheney/Rumsfeld regime. A chief Al-Qaeda propagandist, he was regarded to have been involved in 9/11, had a pre-existing relationship with the FBI, and was even invited to dine at the White House just months after the 9/11 attack.

He was allegedly connected to numerous terror activities and foiled plots and is generally thought to have been a major handler for intelligence-agency patsies (including the failed underpants bomber, the Fort Hood Shooter and even the Charlie Hebdo patsies), as well as a recruiter and motivator of extremists and would-be terrorists. More than all of that, he was a major extremist preacher, whose sermons and videos are credited with having inspired or radicalised scores of young men all over the world (including the Boston Marathon brothers) – all the while, he was most likely an actor in the complex fraud that was the ‘War on Terror’.

robincook-lasttestament

Just like Al-Qaeda itself was a manufactured fraud that eventually became a reality, as was the phony ‘hunt for Bin Laden’ that lasted ten years, Anwar al-Awlaki was simply a US intelligence asset playing a scripted part like Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin.

As Tom Burghardt suggested, back in 2011, al-Awlaki’s unlawful execution (an American citizen executed with no trial and with no proof provided of his crimes – because a trial and all the accompanying ‘evidence’ would’ve been too damaging to American agencies and institutions) was – along with the raid to kill Osama bin Laden – probably ‘part of a larger CIA/Pentagon operation to remove inconvenient participants and witnesses from the scene who might have a thing or two to say about the crimes and intrigues hatched by the imperialist Empire.’

In other words, they were wiping out their own assets once those assets had outlived their usefulness or could’ve become a liability.

I am not, by any means, proposing sympathy for the likes of Anwar al-Awlaki – I am, however, proposing a great deal of sympathy for his family members and the 8-year-old girl that was shot in the neck and left to die for two hours.

Was she simply in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’? Was it death by association? Yemen, by the way, is on the travel ban list – so she couldn’t have come to America for a safer life even if she had wanted to… despite the sterling work her father did with his American sponsors in helping manufacture the ‘Clash of Civilisations’.

The whole thing – Al-Qaeda, 9/11, the War on Terror – was a fraud every step of the way. It is odd – perhaps even telling – that Donald Trump, during the presidential campaign, was willing to talk about Hillary and Obama and the role they played in the creating of ‘ISIS’ or the so-called Islamic State in Syria, Iraq and Libya, but never said a word about the pre-Obama creation of Al-Qaeda and the phony ‘War On Terror’ from which the current ‘ISIS’ phenomenon came.

A phony, unending conflict created in 2001 to service geo-political, corporate and military-industrial agendas, and which has by now claimed millions of lives. With more being added to that toll every day.

Mass rally held in Sana’a against Saudi Zio-Wahhabi onslaught on Yemen

NOVANEWS

d65c47f1-4c79-4d7a-9584-6bd731cad551

People take part in a demonstration in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a on March 3, 2017 to denounce the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi military campaign against their country.

Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a to express outrage over Saudi Zio-Wahhabi deadly military campaign against the impoverished Arab country.

The protesters converged in the Old City of Sana’a following Friday prayers, carrying Yemeni flags and banners in condemnation of the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi aggression.

Participants in the demonstration, under the motto “Tough against Disbelievers”, also held up pictures of civilians injured in the deadly Saudi Zio-Wahhabi airstrikes, calling on the United Nations to fulfil its responsibilities and stop the Riyadh regime’s atrocious military offensive.

They also warned the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi leadership that the continued attacks on the people in Yemen will only strengthen the steadfastness of the nation.

Protesters also accused the United States of being complicit in the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi crimes against the Yemeni nation by providing the Al Saud regime with various munitions.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi has been engaged in a deadly campaign against Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall C.I.A puppet Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a close Riyadh ally.

The airstrikes have taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.

The United Nations humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, says the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi campaign has claimed the lives of 10,000 Yemenis and left 40,000 others wounded.

McGoldrick told reporters in Sana’a earlier this year that the figure was based on casualty counts given by health facilities and that the actual number might be higher.

On February 23, Yemen’s Legal Center for Rights and Development, an independent monitoring group, put the civilian death toll in the war-torn Arab country at 12,041.

The fatalities, it said, comprise 2,568 children and 1,870 women.

العصابة الخليفية تعلم ان القضية في البحرين لا تنحصر بالانتهاكات الفظيفة لحقوق الانسان، بل تتصل بالتحول السياسي نحو نظام حكم يلبي مطالب الشعب ويمنحه حق تقرير مصيره واختيار النظام الذي يناسبه. وتعلم ايضا انها لا تستطيع البقاء في الحكم بدون ممارسة الانتهاكات بدون توقف. وتعتقد ان القمع هو السبيل للبقاء في الحكم، وبدونه ستتصاعد ثورة الوطن ضدهم حتى تسقطهم. ويعلم العالم كذلك ان الاستبداد لا يمكن ان يحترم حقوق الانسان، فهو عدو للانسانية والاخلاق والحياة. فالطاغية يستضعف البشر ويضحي بهم من اجل ان يبقى.

يخوض الطغاة الحروب بابناء غيرهم، اما هم وابناؤهم فيعيشون في ابراجهم العاجية بعيدا عن هموم الناس ومصائبهم. في السابق كان الحاكم العادل هو الذي يتقدم الصفوف مدافعا عن الدين والوطن والشعب، هذا ما كان يفعله رسول الله محمد عليه افضل الصلاة والسلام، الذي كان يتقدم الجنود ويقاتل اعداء الله، حتى قال علي عليه السلام: كنا اذا اشتد الوطيس لدنا برسول الله. وعلي هو الآخر كان قائد المعارك ضد المشركين. يتصدى لمقاتلي المشركين ليحمي بيضة الاسلام. لم يتخلف علي عن معركة قط في عهد رسول الله وحتى عندما كان خليفة للمسلمين. اما حكام اليوم فيخوضون الحروب بأبناء غيرهم، ويستخدمون اموال الناس لاستقدام المرتزقة الذين يضطرون للتضحية بارواحهم للاسترزاق لعيالهم. هؤلاء مستعدون لارتكاب جرائم الحرب تنفيذا لاوامر الطغاة والديكتاتوريين. فالسعوديون يستاجرون شباب السنغال لاستخدامهم ادوات لقتل اليمنيين. ثم يقدمون المال لديكتاتور السودان العسكري ليبعث بشباب ذلك البلد لكي يخوضوا حروب غيرهم في مقابل الحصول على المال. ويشن حكام الامارات الحروب الجائرة على الآخرين ليحققوا لانفسهم انتصارات زائفة، يدفع ثمنها الآخرون بارواحهم.

في عالم يمتهن حقوق الانسان ويستخدمها دعاية اعلامية لنظام عالمي يقوده الغرب ضد الشعوب الاخرى. والخليفيون الذين بعثوا بابناء غيرهم الى اليمن والى شوارع القرى والمدن البحرانية انما يمارسون تلك المهمة القذرة لكي يحافظوا على الحكم الذي اغتصبوه من الشعب البحراني الاصلي (شيعة وسنة) بقوة غيرهم. ومن يحضر الى جنيف يشاهد مرتزقة الطغاة الخليفيين والسعوديين يقدمون شهادات الزور لنظام مجرم ارتكب ابشع الجرائم بحق الوطن والشعب، مستغلا الاموال التي نهبها من بطون الجياع.

يسعى الخليفيون المجرمون لاستبدال شعب البحرين بغيره، بعد ان وضعوا ايديهم على امواله ومقدراته، واستخدموها لقتله وابادته واستبداله بالاجانب. في جنيف يتجسد الزور الخليفي بابشع صوره واشكاله، مستفيدا من قوة المال النفطي السعودي الذي يستخدم لشراء مواقف الدول الا خرى وشهادات الزور بهتانا وظلما. ويشعر نشطاء حقوق الانسان انهم يخوضون معارك لا يضمنون نتائجها.

فالحقوقيون البحرانيون ممنوعون من حضور دورات مجلس حقوق الانسان، باوامر رسمية، ومن يخاف ذلك يعتقل بعد عودته. وهذا ما حدث للناشطة الحقوقية السيدة ابتسام الصايغ التي اعتقلت مطلع هذا الاسبوع لدى عودتها من جنيف. فقد تعرضت للاعتقال وسوء المعاملة والتهديد بالانتقام من عائلتها مع سحب جواز سفرها ومنعها من السفر لجنيف مستقبلا. وما تعرضته له تلك السيدة اصبح ممارسة للعصابة الخليفية المجرمة مع نشطاء حقوق الانسان البحرانيين. انه فصل آخر من الصراع بين السكان الاصليين (شيعة وسنة) مع هذه العصابة المجرمة التي تمارس العدوان بحق الشعبين اليمني والبحراني.

ومن الضرورة بمكان استحضار معاناة الشعب اليمني في الذكرى الثانية للحرب المفروضة التي يشنها السعوديون ومرتزقتهم على ابناء اليمن منذ 26 مارس 2015. عامان من العدون الذي تقوده السعودية كانا الاشد عنفا في التاريخ اليمني الحديث، لكنهما واعدان بسقوط قوى البغي والعدوان طال الزمن والقصر. لقد استغرب العالم من صمود اهل اليمن امام العدوان الذي تشارك فيه قوى كبرى طالما خدعت العالم بمقولات الديمقراطية وحقوق الانسان، بينما تشارك في ابشع حرب عرفتها المنطقة في السنوات الاخيرة.

وازاء هذا العدوان يقف العالم مدانا بالتواطؤ في العدوان، والصمت على المجازر التي يرتكبها السعوديون وعصاباتهم المجرمة التي لا تعرف الرحة ولا مكان للاخلاق في قاموسها. انها نسخ من العصابات التي تصدت لرسول الله وسعت للقضاء على رسالته واستئصلا دينه، ولكن كان الله لها بالمرصاد. فتصدى لها ابطال الاسلام وفي مقدمتهم محمد بن عبد الله وابن عمه علي ابن ابي طالب، وهزموا فلولهم مرارا وسحقوا رموزهم وارسلوهم الى مزبلة التاريخ.

ان قصة الاسلام عنوان للصراع بين الحق الالهي الذي تمثله الرسالات السماوية وآخرها الاسلام المحمدي، والشر الذي تمثله قوى الطغيان وآخرها التحالف القبلي الذي تصدى لذلك الدين. خمسة عشر قرنا مرت على ذلك الصراع وما تزال اطرافه في مواقعها، فلم يهزم الاسلام او يتقهقر ولم تنتصر قوى التحالف القبلي التي تعادي قيم الدين المتمثلة بالايمان والحرية والعدالة. مع ذلك فاتباع محمد بن عبد الله الداعون الى تلك القيم يعانون اليوم، كما عانى بلا وسلمان وعمار وسواهم في مطلع عهد الرسالة. ما تزال “شورى التجار” حسب المصطلح الذي استخدمه الشاعر مظفر النواب تحارب حملة راية الحق ودعاة الايمان والحرية والعدالة. وهيهات تهزم رايتهم، او يتلاشى وجودهم او يتصدع صفهم. فهم يحملون رسالة الله الى البشر ويدافعون عن تلك القيم لكي يحرروا الانسان “يضع عنهم إصراهم والاغلال التي كانت عليهم

وفي الذكرى الثانية للعدوان على اليمن، تتضح حقيقة القوى التي تمارس العدوان، ويتضح عداؤها للقيم التي طرحها الاسلام وروجها محمد واصحابه. وقد تحالفت الاحزاب مجتمعة على الباطل ليقتلوا اهل اليمن، ولكن ما ابعدهم عن النصر واقربهم للهزيمة. شعب البحرين وقف مع اهل اليمن، وشجب ابناؤه تلك الحرب الجائرة، وغضب الخليفيون المشاركون في ذلك العدوان الاجرامي، وسجنوا من انتقد ذلك العدوان، واولهم المناضل فاضل عباس الذي حكم الطاغية الخليفي عليه بالسجن خمسة اعوام لانتقاده الحرب على اليمن. ونبيل رجب هو الآخر، يدفع ثمن مواقفه الرافضة للحرب. مع ذلك هزمت الاحزاب المعتدية، وبدأ الوعي العالمي يتصدى لعدوانها، ويضغط على الحكومات الغربية لوقف السلاح عن السعودية، رأس الحربة في المشروع العدواني البغيض.

وقد فات هذه الدول ان دعمها انما هو دعم للارهاب الذي ضرب اليمن والعراق وسوريا وليبيا، ثم امتد الى فرنسا وبلجيكا، ووصل الآن الى لندن. هذا الارهاب الذي تأسس على الفكر الوهابي الذي يتبناه آل سعود ويوفرون الملياات لنشرة، مدعوم كذلك بسياسات الرياض التي استخدمته سلاحا ضد مناوئيها. وما الاعتداء على البرلمان الذي يعتبره البريطانين رمزا لديمقراطيتهم، الا حلقة اخرى ضمن المشروع السعودي الذي يرى في الديمقراطية تهديدا للحكم القبلي الذي يقوم على اساسه. فليس من الاسلام في شيء استهداف الابرياء وقتل المدنيين ونشر الرعب بين البشر، فذلك فساد في الارض يمقته الله ورسوله وكل من لديه ايمان او انسانية او اخلاق.

لهذا يصر شعبنا على مواصلة ثورته المظفرة باذن الله، ليشارك في تحقيق التغيير المنشود الذي يستبدل الحكم القبلي بحكم عادل بايدي الشعب، ويمنع الفساد ويتصدى للارهاب والاحتلال� ويسعى لاقامة نظام سياسي على اسس العدل والمساواة. تلك هي رسالة شعب البحرين في الذكرى الثانية للعدوان السعودي الاجرامي على اليمن، وسيواصل لتحقيقها معتمدا على الله وعلى نفسه وصابرا محتسبا حتى يأتي الله بأمره.

اللهم ارحم شهداءنا الابرار، واجعل لهم قدم صدق عندك، وفك قيد أسرانا يا رب العالمين

Pentagon Heads Toward Escalating Genocide in Yemen

NOVANEWS
 
Donald-Trump-ISIS-Al-Qaida-Plan-Middle-East-Barack-Obama-Yemen-Terrorists-9-11-Airstrike-581053

Yemen is Obama’s war, now Trump’s, complicit with Saudi terror-bombing, massacring civilians indiscriminately, causing vast destruction, human suffering and starvation.

A previous article explained millions of Yemenis face slow, painful deaths from lack of food needed to survive, blockaded coastal areas preventing it from entering the country.

Amounts airlifted in are woefully inadequate. The mainstream media suppress the ongoing horror, ignoring US responsibility for genocide.

On March 26, the Washington Post-owned Foreign Policy magazine headlined “Pentagon Weighs More Support for Saudi-led War in Yemen,” saying:

“Several Defense officials told Foreign Policy the prospect of more American help for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen was under discussion even as the administration examines its broader strategy in the region, including looking at ways to counter Iran and to defeat Islamic State militants.”

“The Pentagon views increased support for the Saudi-led coalition as one way of potentially pushing back against Iran’s influence in Yemen, as well as shoring up ties with an ally that felt neglected by the previous administration.”

What’s likely is escalated US-orchestrated aggression in a nation already devastated by two years of imperial war – besides years of US drone war since launched by the Bush/Cheney administration in January 2002, civilians overwhelmingly harmed.

Intensifying combat operations assures far more mass slaughter, destruction, chaos and human suffering, besides what’s already intolerable – achieving nothing but endless conflict, benefiting war-profiteers at the expense of countless numbers of innocent victims.

According to one unnamed Defense Department official, “(w)e’re interested in building the capability of the Saudis” to operate in Yemen and elsewhere regionally – free to commit atrocities with US help.

In a Saturday address, marking the second anniversary of imperial war on Yemen, Ansarullah movement leader Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi denounced Saudi terror-bombing war crimes, including use of chemical and other banned weapons – accomplishing nothing but mass slaughter and destruction.

Denouncing aggression on its second anniversary, hundreds of thousands of Yemenis demonstrated in Sana’a’s al-Sabin Square, waving national flags, chanting anti-Saudi slogans.

Supreme Political Council president Saleh al-Samad praised effective resistance against Saudi aggression, despite unlimited resources, weapons, munitions, and US-led Western aid.

Now in its third year, Washington apparently wants conflict escalated, not ended. The longer it continues, the greater the human toll.

The lives and welfare of millions of Yemeni civilians are at risk. Countless more numbers may perish before conflict ends.

US-NATO is Using Saudi Arabia, The West is the True Perpetrator of Genocide in Yemen Genocide

yemen

An American political commentator said the West is using the Riyadh regime as a tool to advance its political agenda, stressing that certain Western countries, which claim to be champions of human rights, are in actual fact the perpetrators of the ongoing genocide in Yemen.

“What is undeniable is the fact that those who ‘promote human rights’ are the perpetrators of the most heinous crimes, including the Genocide in Yemen. To deny their complicity is to deny humanity,” Soraya Sepahpour Ulrich, an independent researcher and author from Irvine, California, told the Tasnim News Agency ahead of the March 26 anniversary of the start of Saudi Arabia’s aggression against Yemen.

She added,

“Today, while Saudi Arabia is being armed and directed to massacre fellow Moslems, it remains deaf to the chant ‘death to Saudis’ coming from the four corners of the ‘international community’. In spite of killing and dying for the political agenda of the US and its allies, the Saudis continue to be despised, hated – set apart. They will not be protected. They are dispensable”..

Following is the full text of the interview.

Tasnim: The Saudi-led coalition has been launching deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement for two years. According to the UN, the Saudi military campaign has claimed the lives of more than 11,000 Yemenis and left 40,000 others wounded. Local Yemeni sources have already put the death toll from the Saudi war at over 12,000, including many women and children. As you know the international community has remained passive in the face of the ongoing Saudi crimes. What is your take on this? Why do you think this issue, the war on Yemen, has been less received by Western media?

Ulrich: I tend to think of the “international community’ as the US and its allies and differentiate between the term ‘international community’ and global community. The indifference toward the plight of the Yemenis is owed to several factors one of which is the media.

There are 6 corporations that own and dominate the media.  It is important to note that what was once known as the military-industrial complex has become the ‘military-industrial-media complex’. Media magnates and people on the boards of large media-related corporations have close links with the military industry and Washington’s foreign policy. This industry not only informs the public but frames issues.

This complex fails to inform the public of the plight of the Yemenis. Since the internet has managed to curb the monopoly of the media industry (alternate news sites and social networking), from time to time, the media industry is forced to acknowledge the horrors of Yemen, but it frames it in such a way so as to change the narrative. For example, it falsely presents the conflict as a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Through repeated lies, the ‘international community’ has been indoctrinated to see Iran as an aggressive country and the Yemenis resisting the invasion of the Saudi-led war as the assailants, putting the blame on the victims.

In addition to the blame game, the international community is being distracted with news on its domestic front. The best example of this are the refugees in Europe and the pending elections there, and in the United States, it is the Donald Trump presidency that occupies the airwaves and censors all other news.

But censorship, framing, and propaganda do not mean that the governments in these countries (international community) are not aware. They are fully complicit either through their actions or inaction.

Tasnim: Certain Western countries are continuously claiming that they are champions of human rights. However, it seems that they are pursuing double standard policies on Saudi Arabia’s atrocities. On March 10, 2017, the administration of US President Donald Trump approved the resumption of weapons sales to Saudi Arabia which critics have linked to Riyadh’s killing of civilians in Yemen. What is your take on this?

Ulrich: Human rights is simply another tool in the arsenal of these nations used to justify their policies. (War on terror being another useful tool of theirs). Consider this and dwell on the irony of it: When the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in 1948 (UN General Assembly), there were less than 60 UN members while dozens of countries were colonies. How could this be considered ‘rights’? Certainly, it is not universal or ideal else there would not have been a need for subsequent declarations such The American Declaration of Rights and Duties of Man (Bogota, 1948), the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (known as the European Convention for Human Rights – Strasbourg,1950), African Charter on Human Rights (Nairobi, 1981), the Universal Islamic Declaration of Human Rights (Paris, 1981) , the Arab Charter on Human Rights (1994), the European Center on Fundamental Rights (2000), and so on.

What is undeniable is the fact that those who ‘promote human rights’ are the perpetrators of the most heinous crimes, including the Genocide in Yemen. To deny their complicity is to deny humanity.

Tasnim: Since the start of its war on Yemen, the Saudi regime and its regional allies have failed to reach their objectives. Why are they continuing their heinous attacks on the Arab country despite their failures? How do you see the role of other regional Arab states in the ongoing war against the Arab country?

Ulrich: It is important to recognize that Saudi Arabia is not solely responsible nor is it the country that is independently fueling and promoting this conflict. One country often ignored is the UAE. As the world turns its anger and hatred towards the Saudis (with help from Western media which points their fingers at the Saudis for their actions in Yemen), UAE is kept above the fray. Whereas in fact, the UAE is home to Erik Prince, the founder of notorious Blackwater. It is training a UAE-led militia force and UAE’s complicity in the crimes deserve to be discussed separately. Suffice it to say that as the Saudis fall from grace, the UAE continues to climb (in America’s plots and those of her allies).

The Saudis, on the other hand, are being used by the West and sadly for them (and their victims), they continue to play the role of gladiators. As Cicero acknowledged of the Roman gladiatoria muner thattheir sponsorship was a political imperative. Even though the Roman gladiators were adulated, they were segregated and despised. The Saudis share the same fate. It is worthwhile remembering that in 2012 it was revealed that a course for US military officers had been suggesting that Mecca and Medina be obliterated without regard for civilian deaths, and it even suggested “Saudi Arabia threatened with starvation … Islam reduced to cult status”.

As President Donald Trump wrote in his book Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again.:  ”Then look at Saudi Arabia. It is the world’s biggest funder of terrorism. Saudi Arabia funnels our petro dollars—our very own money—to fund the terrorists that seek to destroy our people, while the Saudis rely on us to protect them!”

Today, while Saudi Arabia is being armed and directed to massacre fellow Moslems, it remains deaf to the chant ‘death to Saudis’ coming from the four corners of the ‘international community’. In spite of killing and dying for the political agenda of the US and its allies, the Saudis continue to be despised, hated – set apart. They will not be protected.   They are dispensable.

UN Rejects Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Call to Oversee Yemeni port

NOVANEWS
Yemen 4

The United Nations has rejected a call by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi family and its Zionist allies to supervise a Houthi-held Yemeni port, where tens of refugees were killed last week in an aerial attack blamed on Riyadh.

The Saudi Zio-Wahhabi call came after more than 40 people lost their lives and dozens of others were injured in an apparent Saudi Zio-Wahhabi airstrike that hit a boat carrying Somali refugees near Bab al-Mandeb Strait on Friday.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi family and its Zionist allies have denied being behind the air raid despite witness accounts citing an Apache helicopter – which is only used by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi family in the war on Yemen – to have attacked the vessel.

Reacting to the call on Monday, UN spokesman Farhan Haq said the warring sides in Yemen are responsible for protecting civilian infrastructure and civilians, adding, “These are not obligations they can shift to others.”

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi family called for jurisdiction over Hudaydah port to be transferred to the UN while the humanitarian situation in Yemen has dramatically deteriorated amid a Saudi Zio-Wahhabi family blockade, which has put the impoverished country on the brink of widespread famine.

Last week, the World Food Program (WFP) warned that 60 percent of Yemenis, or 17 million people, were in “crisis” or “emergency” food situations.

“The humanitarian community delivers assistance in Yemen solely based on needs and not on political considerations, and will continue to do so through all available means,” added Haq.

The United Nations also called on Monday for an inquiry into the attack.

Janjaweed militiamen gang-rape 3 Darfur women: IDP spokesman

NOVANEWS

Janjaweed may head to Sanaa 

Three Darfuri women were gang-raped after they left their camps to gather firewood, a spokesperson for Darfur displaced said today.

“This happens at a time when government officials claim that Darfur is enjoying security. The crimes and human right violations continue” Hussein Abu-Sharati the spokesperson of Darfur displaced and refugees at the Kalma camp in South Darfur told Sudan Tribune.

Abu-Sharati said that the women were intercepted by a group of Janjaweed militiamen who were present in the area of Wadi Bargo in South Darfur.

He listed the names of the victims as Tayba Adam Al-Tahir 15 years old; Aicha Youssef 17 years old; Kaltouma Salih 55 years old.

“The three women are at the Kass hospital in South Darfur in case anyone has doubts” he added.

The Janjaweed is a heavily armed militia blamed for waging a campaign of rape, killing and pillage in Darfur.

Rights groups and Western governments say that Khartoum used the Janjaweed as a proxy militia against Darfur rebels and civilians suspected of rebel sympathies. However the government denies this and says that the Janjaweed are outlaws.

Abu-Sharati said that an Egyptian officer with the United Nations – African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) was notified of the incident “but took no action”.

“We also informed the UN officer in charge of humanitarian aid to be our witness. There can be no peace in Darfur without giving us security” he said.

In mid-July the ICC’s prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo submitted to the judges of Pre-Trial Chamber I an application for an arrest warrant against Sudanese president Omar Hassan Al-Bashir.

Ocampo filed 10 charges against Al-Bashir: three counts of genocide, five of crimes against humanity and two of murder against the African tribes of Fur, Masalit and Zaghawa.

Ocampo alleged that rape in Darfur “has been committed systematically and continuously for 5 years”.

“Rape is an integral part of the pattern of destruction that the Government of the Sudan is inflicting upon the target groups in Darfur” the prosecutor stated in the summary of his application submitted to the judges.

In a separate incident Abu-Sharati said that Sudanese security officers arrested families of the IDP’s who came to visit them.

“Last week they took away around 73 people. They stopped cars at checkpoints leading to Kalma and Abu-Shouk camps and ask passengers to get out. They picked a number of them and took them to an unknown location” Abu-Sharati said.

“Their families know nothing about them. The Sudanese authorities must release them and guarantee their legal rights” he added.

UN experts estimate some 300,000 people have died and 2.5 million driven from their homes. Sudan blames the Western media for exaggerating the conflict and puts the death toll at 10,000.
