The Bedouins from Najd, the "Saudi" clan has never fought the enemies of Islam but they are quick to attack Muslims. Their forces have brutalized the people of Bahrain; they have unleashed the liver-eating terrorists in Syria and Iraq and have now started bombing revolutionary fighters in Yemen. Perhaps, they may have overstretched themselves. Their Yemeni misadventure may turn out to be their undoing. If so, it would come none too soon!

Having never fired even a sling shot at the Zionist occupiers of Palestine, the “Saudi” regime has launched an attack on another Muslim country: Yemen. This was announced by the “Saudi” ambassador Adel al-Jubeir in Washington DC today. Speaking at a hurriedly convened press conference at the embassy, al-Jubeir said “Saudi” Arabia had launched a military operation in Yemen against Houthi “rebels”. The putative “Saudi” envoy said the kingdom acted to “defend the legitimate government” of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. Hadi had escaped from the Yemeni capital Sana‘a last month and was hiding in the southern port city of Aden.
He was forced to resign in January and was place under house but he made his escape. Making Aden his base, Hadi was challenged there as well. On March 19, there was an attack at Aden International airport by forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. That ended in a stalemate but this morning (Wednesday March 25) an un-identified plane bombed Hadi’s hilltop house in Aden forcing him to flee. Members of the Houthi militia, Ansarullah quickly gained ground in Aden after capturing Al-Anad airbase on Saturday (March 21) and Taiz in quick succession.
Reports from Aden earlier today said Hadi had fled the country in a boat, most probably heading for “Saudi” Arabia, the favorite abode of all fugitives from justice. The Houthis have launched a general mobilization and are not only armed but also good fighters. They also have the backing of forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh who was forced to resign under “Saudi” pressure in February 2012.
While the “Saudis” have never fought the enemies of Muslims, such as the Zionists, they have always been in the forefront of fighting revolutionary Muslim forces. In February 2011, “Saudi” forces invaded Bahrain to frustrate the aspirations of the Bahraini people. The minority Khalifah family was propped up in power. Now they are using their US-supplied fighter-bombers to attack Yemen. The Yemeni venture is not likely to be as easy as the experience in Bahrain.
The Houthis are very good fighters and are not afraid to die. In December 2009, when “Saudi” forces attacked the Houthis, they were given a thorough beating. Scores of “Saudi” soldiers quickly surrendered instead of fighting. With a general mobilization of Houthis who enjoy the support of other groups inside the country, the “Saudis” may have bitten more than they can swallow. They may have signed their own death warrant.
The “Saudi” regime had convened a meeting of the Gulf Cooperation Council in Riyadh over the weekend. It was presided over by the king-to-be, Deputy Crown Prince, Muhammad bin Nayef. There, it was agreed to use all possible means to help the “legitimate government” of Yemen. The “legitimate government” had resigned in January and in any case, the so-called president is not even in the country any more. This is not the first time the “Saudis” have attacked Yemen. The last time in the 1960s, ironically, they were supporting the Houthi-backed monarchy in Yemen.
Now the “Saudis” are fighting against the Houthis. Meanwhile, reports from Aden say that the Houthis have captured secret US intelligence files describing US operations in Yemen. The files reportedly contained informants’ identities as well as counter-terrorism operation plans, according to the Los Angeles Times. This will be very helpful to the Houthis to identify who the American agents are and will be able to rid the country of these traitors. As far as the “Saudi” regime is concerned, it has once again exposed itself as the enemy of Islam and Muslims.
