  1. Saudis are now starting to use cluster bombs against innocent civilians justifying their actions by saying they are using it against "armored vehicles", the Islamic rules of combat strictly forbid collateral damage but the Saudi Wahabis want to skim over them. http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/29/politics/saudi-arabia-us-cluster-bombs-on-civilians/index.html
  2. Saudi Arabia and Qatar target-- civilians in Yemen's massacre carried out by their puppets Alqaida/ISIS & Al-Islah party. Lets see if any Sunni country, scholar or group condemn this!?! -------------------------------------------------- Triple bombings claim 142 lives at mosques in Yemen’s capitalAt least 142 people have been killed and nearly 351 wounded after three bomb attacks hit mosques crowded with worshippers in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, in quick succession. Witnesses said two bombers carried out an attack inside the Badr mosque in southern Sana’a during midday prayers on Friday. One walked inside the mosque and detonated his explosive device, causing panic and making dozens of worshippers rush toward the outside gates. A second bomber then attacked at the gate as panicked worshippers tried to flee. Yemeni emergency personnel and Houthi fighters carry a body on a stretcher following a bomb explosion at the Badr mosque in southern Sana’a, March 20, 2015. © AFP A third bomber targeted- al-Hashoosh mosque in northern Sana’a. One witness at the mosque said the force of the explosion threw him a couple of meters away. “The heads, legs and arms of the dead people were scattered on the floor of the mosque,” Mohammed al-Ansi said, adding, “Blood is running like a river.” Ansi noted that many of those who did not die in the blast were critically wounded by shattered glass falling from the windows. There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings, but the acts of terror bear the hallmarks of those carried out by the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which is based in Yemen. The attacks come a day after intense gun battles between supporters and opponents of fugitive President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi in the southern port city of Aden left more than a dozen people dead and forced closure of the city’s international airport.

  3. British Government threatened with legal action to stop it exporting weapons to the Saudi Arabian regime Saudi Arabia has been accused of war crimes in its war in Yemen and ministers admit its army is using British weapons there The British Government could be taken to court in order to halt arms exports from British companies to the Saudi Arabian regime, campaigners and lawyers have said. Law firm Leigh Day, which is representing Campaign Against the Arms Trade, is considering legal action against ministers to force the suspension of weapons exports to the Middle Eastern autocracy. The United Nations said Saudi Arabia is breaching international law in its on-going war in Yemen and lawyers contend that it is unlawful for Britain to continue weapons export to the country if they are being used for atrocities. Leigh Day wrote to the Business Secretary Sajid Javis on 12 November to raise the issue but campaigners say the department could be breaking its own rules. The Government says it is complying with its international obligations. Rosa Curling, a human rights lawyer at the firm, said the Government was acting unlawfully if its weapons were being used to breach international law. “If there is a risk that arms from the UK could be used to commit serious breaches of international humanitarian law, and human rights law, then export licenses for these materials must be suspended immediately,” she said. “If this is not done, we believe the Government’s current decision to keep supplying Saudi Arabia is unlawful.” The Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond confirmed last month that British-manufactured weapons are being used by Saudi forces. Most weapons in the UK are produced by private companies but the Government gives consent and licences all exports and has complete control over which countries can buy from British producers. Those used in Saudi are thought to include flagship Eurofighter Typoon aircraft and Paveway guided missiles. In August the UN Office of Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said Saudi Arabian attacks on civilian areas had clearly broken international law. “These attacks are in clear contravention of international humanitarian law and are unacceptable," UN under-secretary general for humanitarian affairs Stephen O'Brien O'Brien told the UN Security Council. “I am extremely concerned that the damage to the port of Hodeida could have a severe impact on the entire country, and would deepen humanitarian needs, making more people food insecure, leaving them without access to water or medicines, which could also mean the spread of disease." The charity Médecins Sans Frontières said the bombing of a hospital was a “war crime” as “a matter of fact”. Andrew Smith of Campaign Against Arms Trade said: “UK fighter jets and UK bombs have been central to the humanitarian catastrophe being unleashed on the people of Yemen. Thousands have died and essential infrastructure, including hospitals, has been destroyed. “The UK has continued to support air strikes and provide arms, despite strong evidence that war crimes are being committed. The Saudi regime has an appalling human rights record at home and abroad and these arms sales should never have been approved in the first place.” Saudi Arabia denies it has broken international law. It said the bombing of the MSF hospital was a mistake. Saudi Arabia is intervening in the Yemeni civil war on the side of the internationally-recognised Government. It says Shia Houthi groups who have taken control of most of the country are not the country's legitimate government. Apparent breaches of international law by foreign militaries using UK-produced weapons have been taken into account by UK courts before. In 2010 anti-arms trade activists who forcefully entered and broke machinery at a factory owned by an arms company near Brighton were acquitted of conspiring to cause criminal damage after a court found they had a lawful excuse for their activity. The damage to that factory was inflicted during the Israel 2009 invasion of Gaza; the activists argued parts from the factory were being used in Israeli fighter jets that were causing indiscriminate damage to civilian areas of Gaza. A Government spokesperson told the Independent: “The UK is satisfied that we are not in breach of our international obligations. We operate one of the most rigorous and transparent arms export control regimes in the world with each licence application assessed on a case by case basis, taking account of all relevant information, to ensure compliance with our legal obligations. No licence is issued if it does not meet these requirements. “We regularly raise with Saudi Arabian-led coalition and the Houthis, the need to comply with international humanitarian law (IHL) in Yemen. We monitor the situation carefully and have offered the Saudi authorities advice and training in this area." http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/british-government-threatened-with-legal-challenge-to-stop-it-exporting-weapons-to-the-saudi-arabian-a6776601.html I read a funny comment about this story: " Maybe the UK fell over and accidentally sold them the weapons? "
  4. Yemen suicide bombing in Sanaa mosque 'kills 25' http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-34344648
  5. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته It has been said that one of the signs before Imam Medhi(Aj) is the Yemani rising in Yemen to defeat the Sufyani in Syria. There are a few theories I have heard of: 1. Scholars suggest that the only authentic hadiths in regards to the precursors before Imam al Mehdi(Aj) is the callings from the skies. (I have heard that one of these scholars was Sayed Khoi). 2. There is too much evidence to deny it. Yemen that is poor and has nothing compared to Saudi Arabia is winning against them to the extent that they have destroyed some of their bases. Turkey is also gathering terrorists in Syria to try destabilise it(apparently there is a Hadith that shows Turkey involved with destabilising Syria) and others. 3. ^ From this there are 2 theories - 1. The Yemenis are doing this themselves and the Tyrannical Terrorists. 2. The Yemenis are taking orders from the Yemani that has not yet declared himself but he is here, the Sufyani is giving orders and is behind the terrorists and the objective to destabilise Syria in order for himself to rein. 4. Leave it to Allah Swt if it happens it happens if it doesn't it doesn't. 5. As Muslims we shouldn't deny evidence and should be aware if something is going to happen or not. 6. When the Yemeni comes he is going to call all the Shia to Yemen. Allahu 3alam. If you all could add your knowledge and wisdom to this topic I would be greatful. جزاك الله خير
  6. SUPPORT IDP'S in Yemen - Donate a simple amount of 20$ and help a family. Click here to donate With a single intent and single goal, and idea was born. An idea to somehow go around the current Blockade on Yemen and help people who are displaced by war. Armed with relentless passion and the ability to focus on helping others the #20ForYemen project was started on Twitter. The Project Spirit The basic idea was to collect funds and send them to Yemen to have one of the project members buy food locally and distribute it. This was the only way to beat the blockade which is in place.This idea has proven to be successful and we have so far managed to feed 300 Internally Displaced Families. Much more needs to be done. By Giving a simple amount of 20$ By giving a simple amount of only 20$ you are helping a whole family for one month! For each 20$ we can buy: 25 kg wheat 5 kg rice 5 kg sugar 2L cooking oil What has been done so far? In as little as 10 days Twitter responded and we raised $4200 enough to feed almost 150 families. The food has been distributed. (See pictures) We are already buying food for another 100 Families. What do you get? What is better than the satisfaction of helping a family in dire need? There are only two ways to live a pleasant life, either in someone’s heart or in someone’s prayer. In this case you get both! We like quotes! The Money You Donate Every penny we receive from the donors goes to buy food for Internally displaced families As for last time, we bought 149 bags each one contained: 25 Kg wheat, 5 kg sugar, 5 kg rice and 2L of cooking oil. The total price was 845820 YR which is equal to 2500$. Transport costs from Sanaa (Capital of Yemen) to Harf Safyan (The Area where the food was given) costed 62000 YR which is equal to 180$. Wait... What Is Happening to Yemen? Saudi Arabia together with a coalition of nine Arab states, began carrying out in-discriminant airstrikes in Yemen on 25 March 2015 and at the same time a blockade was placed on Yemen so at the moment nothing can go in, not even basic supplies! Some UN stats: According to UNOCHA, this is the latest situation report on Yemen, published 30. June 2015: The Project founder is Fatik Abdullah Al Rodaini. He is 36 Years Old and he lives in Sanaa, Yemen. Fatik is a Journalist and an Human Rights Activist in Yemen.

  7. A new chapter opens in the region, the coward Zionist puppet Saudi invades Yemen, it must be ready to give up on Yemeni provinces that it occupied decades ago. It is a must for ALL SHIAS to help and pray for Ansarallah movement and their supporters in Yemen as much as possible. __________________ PressTv- Saudi Arabia starts military intervention in Yemen: Saudi envoy Saudi military forces have launched a military operation in Yemen where the Ansarullah fighters have acquired power, says the monarchy’s ambassador to the United States​. "The operation is to defend the legitimate government," Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in a rare news conference in Washington, referring to the administration of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who reportedly fled the country earlier in the day. He added that the current situation in Yemen “is not an option" for Riyadh, saying the operation began at 7 pm Eastern time. He further accused the Houthi fighters of having “always chosen the path of violence", claiming Riyadh would do “anything necessary” for "the legitimate government” of the Arab world’s most impoverished county. Meanwhile, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, the UAE along with Saudi Arabia released a joint statement that they "have decided to answer the call of President Hadi” against the movement’s ”aggression”. The statement included all member states of the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council ([P]GCC) except Oman. NT/AS/MHB
  8. :lol: :rolleyes: :lol: The union of Zionists and Khawarij, after Syria now the two brutal movements are going to befriend each other in Gaza! Feel sorry-- for those who were so naive to express their support for such groups (no matter what) because these groups were oppressed and were confronting Zionists and caring for Quds... so now, I hope the case is closed. ---------------------------------- Israel's secret cooperation with Hamas Link: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4650733,00.html
  9. According to multiple media reports, the first Saudi soldier has been killed by the Houthis on the border, while 10 others have been injured. As a response to this and the Houthis capture of Central Aden, foreign troops have reportedly begun to land in Aden.

  11. After the government and the terrorist Islah party backed by the Takfiri tribes attacked protesters, the Houthis are striking them back and are very close to advance across the country and take over Sanaa! ------------------------------------------ Yemeni state TV goes off air after attack Yemeni state television’s three channels stopped transmitting for about an hour after its studios came under fierce fire during an overnight rebel advance on the capital, an official with the broadcaster said, according to Agence France-Press. "Transmissions have ceased because of incessant fire from Huthis (Shiite rebels) since Thursday evening,” the official said. Houthis help a fellow protester, injured during clashes with law enforcement officers, near the cabinet building in Sanaa September 9, 2014. (Reuters) The attack on the TV headquarters prompted Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi to hold emergency talks with top cabinet aides. Flights suspendedMeanwhile, international airlines have suspended flights to the Yemeni capital of Sanaa for the coming 24 hours, amid the worsening security situation, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said on Friday. “Arab and foreign airlines have decided to suspend their flights to Sanaa for 24 hours because of developments in the capital,” the CAA said in a statement issued overnight. A file picture taken on December 23, 2013 shows airplanes of Yemen's national carrier Yemenia on the tarmac at Sanaa International Airport. (File photo: AFP) The statement added that the measure could be extended or reconsidered depending on the security situation. Armed Shiite rebels, known as the Houthis, have been carrying out a series of attacks in an attempt to push into Sanaa. On Thursday, nearly 40 people were killed on the capital’s outskirts, during fighting between Houthis and Sunni Islamists backed by Yemeni troops. This took place as the U.N. envoy huddled with leaders in the rebel stronghold to try and end Yemen’s political crisis. Alarabiya
  12. Sallams I only have access to al Jazeera and BBC, and none of them can be trusted to tell the whole story. I want to hear it from someone on here, someone who knows what is actually happening in Yemen. Is the war in Yemen mainly Houthi vs Government or is there a Shia vs Wahabi element present? I have heard that there has been numerous schools teaching hate against shias in Yemen and that is what outraged Houthis, correct? Iran is being accused of sending arms and helping them, and they say they captured a boat which was smuggling weapons into Yemen and there were Iranians on board, is this true? Saudi Arabia is saying that they are only looking to make Yemen stable because it is its neighbour and the spill over effect could damage Saudi Arabia. All in all, what is the story in a short paragraph please, are we shias really all that goody goody or am I under some kind of a propaganda? What do the Houthis want? what does the government want? I also hear the Houthis are led my a Sayyid! :D :angel: Could he be the Yemeni? Thank you, try to keep it short please.

  14. The Syrian government to destroy the terrorists and their ZioSalafi backers in Aleppo in the next few weeks and give an end to their activities in the city as promised by President Assad last week. Go Syria & its Allies! Liberate Aleppo! _______________________________ Syrians clash around 12th century mosque in Aleppo BEIRUT (AP) -- Syrian rebels clashed with regime troops in the narrow stone alleyways around a historic 12th century mosque in the Old City of Aleppo on Thursday, while a government airstrike north of the city killed at least seven people, activists said. The rebels, who have been slowly chipping away at the regime's hold on Aleppo, received a boost from the U.S. in their fight to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad. Washington pledged an additional $60 million in assistance to the opposition and - in a significant policy shift - said that for the first time it will provide non-lethal aid like food and medical supplies directly to rebel forces on the ground. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced the decision Thursday on the sidelines of an international conference on Syria in Rome. European nations also were expected to signal their intention to provide fresh assistance to the opposition, possibly including defensive military hardware. The rebels have made a number of strategic gains in northern Syria in recent weeks, including the capture of a hydroelectric dam and some military bases. They also have been regularly hitting the heart of Damascus with mortar rounds, puncturing the aura of normalcy that the regime has tried to cultivate in the capital. In Aleppo, a key battleground in the civil war, clashes raged around the landmark Umayyad Mosque in the walled Old City, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The rebels control one part of the mosque, and government troops hold the other. Rebels launched an offensive on Aleppo, Syria's largest urban center and its commercial capital, in July 2012. Since then, the city has been carved into rebel- and government-controlled zones in brutal street fighting that has destroyed entire neighborhoods and damaged some of the ancient city's rich archaeological and cultural heritage. The Umayyad Mosque, also known as the Great Mosque of Aleppo, sits near a medieval covered market in the Old City, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The mosque was heavily damaged in October 2012 just weeks after a fire gutted the old city's famed market. North of Aleppo, a government airstrike on the village of Deir Jamal killed at least seven people, including five children, according to the Observatory. It was not immediately clear what the target was, but regime warplanes frequently carry out bombing runs on rebel-held towns. Farther south, in the central city of Homs, the state news agency said a car bomb caused casualties and extensive material damage, but it did not elaborate. AP
  15. Note: The Salafi Kufr school, Darul-Shaitan is built in a province whose 95% or more is Shia... The school is funded by Zionists lapdogs, the Saudis. In recent years they encouraged the Salafis to turn the Takfiri school into a military base so they can use it against Shias or use it if anything happens between Saudi and North Yemen. The main slogans of Darul Haidth school in Dammaj is that Shias are heretics and should be killed. ------------------------------ Two men from a mosque in West London have been killed fighting alongside Islamic fundamentalists in Yemen, it can be disclosed. The two men, one a former accountancy student, had travelled to a religious school to study Islam but took up arms in Yemen’s increasingly bloody civil war, their friends and relatives told the Daily Telegraph. They were killed fighting rival shia Muslims in the mountains around the small town of Dammaj in Northern Yemen, according to one report. The father of one of the men said he considered his son to be “shaheed” [a martyr] and his whole family had been inspired to adopt fundamentalist Islam. Both men attended a small mosque in Cranford, West London, under the flight path into Heathrow. An imam at the mosque said they did not agree with suicide bombing or terrorism but they would not discourage members of the congregation from traveling to Dammaj, which is considered a seat of learning for fundamentalist “salafi” Islam. Adil Malik, 24, from Hounslow, and his friend, Hisham, had been living in Dammaj for several years, studying with Sheikh Yahya al- Hajooree, who runs a madrassa called Dar ul-Haadith. The seminary is said to have several thousand students from all over the world, including dozens from Britain but has come under regular attack from shia Houthi tribesmen. The sheikh made a call to arms in a video posted online two months before Mailk died, declaring: “Whoever is killed defending his faith has died a martyr.” In a posting on a salafi website, a man calling himself Ibn Salaf wrote of an attack by “our noble mujahideen” [holy fighters] on the Houthis in the mountains around the town which led to an artillery response which killed 22 fighters from Dammaj. “From these brothers was our honourable brother Aadil al-Pakistani, one who was always known for having lofty manners and zeal to seek knowledge of the religion and likewise our brother Hishaam who had been studying at Dammaj for five years and benefited a great deal.” He added: “For those of you who did not know them, they were both brothers from Cranford Masjid [mosque] and very well known amongst the salafi brothers for their goodness.” Malik’s father, who moved to Britain from Pakistan 40 years ago, said Dammaj had been under siege by the Houthis for a month at the time his son died in December last year. “He didn’t go there to fight but if someone comes and attacks you, you have to defend yourself,” he said. Malik’s father said his son was “shaheed” and added: “His time was written, it is going to come for you, it is written for everyone.” He reserved his wrath for the Houthi fighters, adding: “The Lord will punish them, they will pay, they will burn in hell, that is my prayer. They have taken innocent people’s lives.” Hisham was originally from Saudi Arabia but has lived in India and in London, according to Malik’s father. Malik was born in Britain and attended Northolt High School and turned to religion while studying accountancy at Brunel University in West London. The school did not respond to requests for comment. Mohammed Nurudeen Hamani, an imam at Cranford Mosque originally from Ghana, said a number of young men from the mosque had travelled to Dammaj, including one who had recently returned. “We believe that one day or another, you will die and your next life will be different and you have to be willing to accept that.” Telegraph
  16. Houthis' Leader: S. Arabia Ready for Aggression against Yemen TEHRAN (FNA)- Leader of Yemen's Houthi Movement Seyed Abdelmalik al-Houthi in a statement condemned the Saudi monarchy for its interference in Yemen's internal affairs, and said Riyadh has prepared itself to wage an aggression of Northern Yemen. In a statement a copy of which was sent to FNA, Al-Houthi warned that Saudi Arabia has a plot to open a new front into Yemen's Northern borders in a bid to attack the country's Shiite population through its hirelings and mercenaries. Al-Houthi underlined that the Saudi plot is aimed at an aggression of the "al-Hojjah" province, distancing the Yemeni people from their revolution and stirring sectarian strife in the country. "We emphasize that these aggressive measures aim to set fire on the Hojjah province and distance the Yemeni nation from their revolution, specially because of their opposition to foreign and regional intervention in Yemen, including the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) initiative," said the statement, adding, "Another goal pursued by this measure (the plot for aggression) is nurturing sectarian conflicts in Yemen." He said that Saudi Arabia's attempts to spark a civil war in Yemen through using the political and economic conditions of the country is an immoral and irreligious act that contradicts the interests of both the Saudi and Yemeni nations. Al-Houthi blamed Saudi Arabia for all calamities and backwardness of Yemen, saying, "We remind the Yemen nation that the Saudi regime's financial backup for civil wars and its moves for sparking sectarian strife in recent decades are the main reason for all calamities of this nation and these measures have deterred Yemen from progress and prosperity the same way that it (Saudi Arabia) is confronting the Yemeni nation's revolution in a bid to prevent them from achieving freedom and justice," the statement said. His remarks came after earlier reports from Yemen said that Saudi Arabia has been funding and training Somali refugees to fight the Shiite Houthi movement and spark sectarian strife in Yemen in a bid to immune the kingdom to the spread of Yemen's revolution. Informed sources said in April that nearly 1,300 Somalis have arrived in Saudi Arabia through the country's border with Yemen and are being trained and provided with logistical aid and weapons to return to Yemen to stop the spread of Islamic awakening to Saudi Arabia. "These people can easily infiltrate Yemen's coasts via sea routes by the possibilities that the US (Saudi Arabia's staunch ally) provides for them in a bid to fuel sectarian and ethnic strife in the region as sought by the US intelligence apparatus," the sources underscored. "Saudi Arabia is also welcoming them and is training them in its special military training centers to use them against the Shiite Houthis in Northern Yemen," the sources said. Meantime, sources said that Saudi Arabia has recently evacuated five Yemeni villages and destroyed homes near the borders and will construct a wall in the joint border areas. The Al-Houthi movement has opposed Saudi Arabia's interfering measures in Yemen. The movement said that uprisings in the region have increased Riyadh's concerns about the future of the Saudi regime. Since Saudi Arabia shares long joint borders with Yemen, it has interfered in the country's internal affairs and still continues meddling. The revolution of the Yemeni people has worried Saudi Arabia because Riyadh is worried that the flames of the revolution may spread to Saudi Arabia too. FarsNews
  17. Question: Isn't it a good idea for the Houthi movement's social branch to setup donation collecting centers in countries like Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait and even EU to support the poor people in North Yemen? Most Shias might be willing to donate and help them, especially after years of poverty and multiple wars that were imposed on them by Saudi and their own puppet government. Now that they are free and in control of many areas in the North, they should use all resources to help people socially and economically to build themselves reputations amongst people. Abdulmalik Al Houthi From Wiki, Sheikh Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi (born 1982) is a leader of the Zaidiyyah in Sa'dah Governorate, Yemen. His brothers Yahia Badreddin al Houthi and Abdul-Karim Al-Houthi are also leaders of the movement, as was his late brother Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi. He was claimed to have been heavily injured during an air raid in December 2009, a claim denied by Houthi spokesmen. On 26 December 2009 it was claimed that Abdul-Malik has been killed after 2 days from a heavy air strike from the Royal Saudi Air Force. The claim however was refuted by the Houthis which then released video evidence proving he was alive. The al Houthi movement in Yemen traces its roots back to a political and paramilitary group called the Believing Youth established in the mid-1990s by Hussein Badr al Din al Houthi. In 2001, Hussein al Houthi increasingly spoke out against the state, and the group held mass anti-government and anti-American demonstrations. The government issued a reward for the capture of Hussein and security forces killed him in September 2004 during an attempt to arrest him. His death ignited an uprising by his followers, who became known as the al Houthis. The al Houthi movement draws its supporters from the Zaydi Shiite population in northern Yemen and is primarily active in Sa'ada and Amran provinces. The al Houthis' grievances include economic and social marginalization, corruption in the government, close alignment of the state with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and excessive Wahhabi influence on state policy and schools. Al Houthi leaders, however, are quick to deny accusations that the goal of the al Houthi movement is to re-establish a Shiite imamate in the north of Yemen – an accusation the government often repeats. The al Houthi movement claims to seek autonomy from the Yemeni state for the Zaydi Shiite population in order to redress its other stated grievances. Abdul Malik's Ashura speech (Arabic)
  18. (CNN) -- The outlook for the underequipped members of the Syrian opposition appeared to brighten Thursday on the eve of a Friends of Syria meeting in Tunisia. Diplomatic sources told CNN that a number of Arab nations are supplying arms to the Syrian opposition. The sources wouldn't identify which countries. In London, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton predicted the opposition will find willing sources to supply them with munitions..... "There will be increasingly capable opposition forces," she said Thursday. "They will find somewhere, somehow the means to defend themselves, as well as begin offensive measures and the pressure will build on Russia and China. World opinion is not going to stand idly by." ------------------------------------------- Time for Assad to bring down 100s of terrorists daily and do not even give them a chance to breathe.. The terrorist states such as Saudi and Qatar, and Clinton should not succeed in creating a civil war in Syria. Syrians need to save their county from satanic forces.
  19. Taxation or closure of Strait of Hormuz? The West, including the US are using the logic of war, terrorism and force/sanctions on Iran. Iran could either impose a good amount of taxes on all goods including oil passing through the Strait of Hormuz or simply block it. The West had already declared a war on Iran. Sanctions are part of a cold war, and Strait of Hormuz is part of Iran's strategy to respond to any acts of war; no sweet is distributed during any war. _______________________________________ Iran to 'block' Gulf oil if sanctions proceed Vice-president threatens to cut off shipments at Strait of Hormuz if West sanctions Iran's vital oil exports. No oil will be allowed to pass through the Strait of Hormuz if the West applies sanctions on Iran's oil exports, Iranian Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi has warned. The threat was reported on Tuesday by the state news agency IRNA as Iran conducted its fourth day of naval drills near the Strait of Hormuz, at the entrance to the oil-rich Gulf. "If sanctions are adopted against Iranian oil, not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of Hormuz," Rahimi was quoted as saying. "We have no desire for hostilities or violence ... but the West doesn't want to go back on its plan" to impose sanctions, he said. "The enemies will only drop their plots when we put them back in their place." The threat underlined Iran's readiness to target the narrow stretch of water along its Gulf coast if it is attacked or economically strangled by Western sanctions. War games Iranian ships and aircraft dropped mines in the sea on Tuesday as part of the drill, according to a navy spokesman. Although Iranian war games occur periodically, the timing of these is seen as a show of strength as the US and Europe prepare to impose further sanctions on Iran's oil and financial sectors. The last round of sanctions, announced in November, triggered a pro-government protest in front of the British embassy in Tehran during which Basij militia members overran the mission and ransacked it. London closed the embassy as a result and ordered Iran's mission in Britain shut as well. An Iranian legislator's comments last week that the navy exercises would block the Strait of Hormuz briefly sent oil prices soaring before that was denied by the government. While the foreign ministry said such drastic action was "not on the agenda", it reiterated Iran's threat of "reactions" if the current tensions with the West spilled over into open confrontation. Saudi steps in Industry sources said on Tuesday that top oil exporter Saudi Arabia and other Gulf OPEC states were ready to replace Iranian oil if further sanctions halt Iranian crude exports to Europe. Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi had said that Saudi Arabia had promised not to replace Iranian crude if sanctions were imposed. "No promise was made to Iran, its very unlikely that Saudi Arabia would not fill a demand gap if sanctions are placed," an industry source familiar with the matter told the Reuters news agency. "If the sanctions take place, the price of oil in Europe would increase and Saudi and other Gulf countries would start selling there to fill the gap and also benefit from the higher price," said a second industry source. Brent crude oil futures jumped nearly a dollar to over $109 a barrel after the Iranian threat, but a Gulf OPEC delegate said the effect could be temporary. Aljazeera
  20. The ignorant Wahabi Arabs should prepare themselves for doomsday. Iran warns Yahoodi (Saudi) Arabia, the killer of Shias of Bahrain, Baghdad, Sada and Qatif. _____________________________________________________ Iran warns Arab oil producers on replacing its oil Iran warned Arab oil producers against boosting production to offset any potential drop in Tehran's crude exports in the event of an embargo affecting its oil sales. Iran warned its Arab neighbors on Sunday not to raise crude output to replace Iranian oil in the event of an embargo by the European Union, Tehran's OPEC Governor Mohammad Ali Khatibi was quoted as saying. "The consequences of this issue are unpredictable. Therefore, our Arab neighbor countries should not cooperate with these adventurers and should adopt wise policies," Khatibi said. The U.S. recently imposed sanctions targeting Iran's central bank and, by extension, refiners' ability to buy and pay for crude. The European Union is also weighing an embargo on Iranian oil, while Japan, one of Iran's top Asian customers, didn’t pledged to buy less crude from the country. Mohammad Ali Khatibi, Iran's OPEC governor, said that attempts by Persian Gulf nations to replace Iran's output with their own would make them an "accomplice in further events." "These acts will not be considered friendly," Khatibi said, adding that if the Arab producers "apply prudence and announce that they will not participate in replacing oil, then adventurist countries will not show interest," in the embargo. Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil producer and a close U. S. ally, had claimed that it was ready to raise its output to accommodate global market needs, but experts say no member of the 12-nation Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has significant spare capacity to replace Iran oil exports. Oil Minister Ali Al-Naimi appeared to try to further clarify the country's position in comments published Sunday in the daily Al-Ektisadiyah newspaper. "We never said that Saudi Arabia is trying to compensate for Iranian oil in the case that sanctions (are enacted)," Al-Naimi was quoted as saying. "We said that we are prepared to meet the increase in global demand as a result of any circumstances." Iran's warning introduces a new layer of complication to an issue that has the potential for broad regional and global fallout. "If these countries make a mistake and give the green light, this will be a historic green light," Khatibi said. Any attempt by Iran to close the Strait of Hormuz, through which a sixth of the world's oil flows, would also affect the export abilities of the major Persian Gulf producers, including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Qatar. While momentum appears to be building for the sanctions by the West, China, another major buyer of Iranian oil, has come out against the measures Tehran Times
  21. Houthis to Salafi Terrorists: Stop Takfir, terrorist acts, suicide bombing against civilians and religious ceremonies, or else face the consequences. ------------------------------------------------ Yemen Shiite Houthis Fight Salafist Terrorists Near Saudi Arabia’s Border Yemen’s Shiite Muslim Houthis killed 24 Salafist terrorists yesterday after a week of sporadic fighting between the two religious communities in the north of the country near the border with Saudi Arabia. The Houthis attacked the Dar Al-Hadith school in the Dammaj region in Saada, according to Abdulhamid al-Hajouri, the principal of the school. About 60 Salafists terrorists, who are considered conservative Sunnis, were wounded in the clashes, Abu Ismail, spokesman for the group in Dammaj, said in a phone interview today. Several Houthi fighters were also killed and wounded, Dhaifallah al-Shami, a leader of the Shiite group, said. Abdelmalek al-Houthi, had issued orders for a ceasefire but that the Salafis rejected it and fought on. "We have martyrs and wounded," he said. "We have informed the mediators that the Salafis can have their slogans as long as they refrain from incitement and takfir (denouncing a Muslim as an infidel)." The escalations between both groups started when Houthis claimed that Salafis are entering weapons inside their educational institutions in the town of Dammaj, and demanded that all military posts are emptied. As Salafis refused, a tightened siege against their religious school complex took place early this week. bloomberg.com Houthis rejected the power transfer signing that took place in Riyadh earlier this week and said it would not recognize it. "The movement has more than 100,000 fighters ready to obey commands from their spiritual leader, Abdul Malik al-Houthi," said Ahmed Bahri, an expert in Houthi affairs. "This movement is well organized and only has one head," Bahri said. "They now control majority areas in the provinces in Sa'ada and Jawf, and have powerful presence in Amran, Mareb, Sana'a and Hajjah," added Bahri. Sectarian violence is at peak in northern Yemen where Houthis control is spread across five provinces. Saudi Arabia fought the Houthis in 2009 but failed to end their expansion. The attacks come a day after Yemen's vice president called for presidential elections to be held in February, state media reported. CNN Recently Salafi terrorists backed by the West and Saudi Nasabis were organizing themselves to kill Shias in Northern Yemen instead of focusing on Saleh's government and the revolution of the people. Finally, Houthis are saying, enough is enough. Either live amongst Shia communities of the north in a peaceful coexistence or face the will of Allah. Houthis must hurry and expand party's influence and presence in the land and towards the sea and unite with Shia tribesmen before it is too late and again face oppression of puppets and Nawasib for another 50 years.
  22. 'Saudi Arabia enemy of Muslim world' - Press TV News The leader of the Houthi movement in Yemen says Saudi Arabia is an enemy to the entire Muslim world, accusing the Kingdom of creating hatred and hostility, Press TV reports. Mohamed Badreddin al-Houthi said in an interview with Press TV that Saudi Arabia is “an enemy to all the free people of the world, including non-Muslims.” “It manufactures terrorism and an ideology that divides the people, divides Muslims, creates hatred and hostility,” Houthi added. The Yemeni figure, who is the brother of the late leader of the movement, Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi, further explained that in 2009 the Saudis “bribed the tribal leaders within the Houthi movement into favoring the Salafi-Wahabi ideology” so that they can control the border region between Yemen and Saudi Arabia, especially the northwestern city of Sa'ada. In 2009, clashes broke out between the Houthi fighters and Saudi forces along the common border between the two countries. The Houthis accused Saudi Arabia of supporting the Yemeni government in attacks against them. Houthi pointed out that the Saudi regime “would spend hundreds of thousands if not millions” to achieve its goals. Hussein al-Houthi and a number of his men were killed in an attack launched by Yemeni government forces in an area close to the border with the Kingdom in September 2004. Yemeni dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh has repeatedly claimed that if he hands over power, Yemen would be divided into multiple states. Mohamed al-Houthi, however, said the Yemeni nation “cannot be separated,” adding that the most important thing for the movement is “how to serve this nation, our Ummah, how to protect our morals and religious principles.” “We want dignity and independence. We will not accept continuation of Saleh scenario. We had enough during the 33 years [of his rule]. We cannot be fooled again,” Houthi said. Saleh, who was injured in an attack on the presidential palace in June, returned to Yemen on September 23 after receiving treatment in Saudi Arabia. Demonstrators in Yemen have been holding protests against the US-backed Saleh regime since late January, demanding the trial of the Yemeni dictator for the brutal crackdown on the popular uprising. According to local reports, hundreds of Yemenis have been killed and thousands more have been injured since the onset of the popular uprising in the country.
