Pro-Israel Zionist Jew, Gerald Michael Feierstein, is the US ambassador to Yemen and a defacto new ruler of the Muslim Shia majority country (52%), where there have been strong pro-democracy protests. Yemen is a nation where the Israeli Mossad has long run a false-flag terror operation known as Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
In March 2012, Gerald Feierstein, in an interview with pro-Saudi daily al-Hayat – had accused Hizbullah and Hamas for helping the Islamic Republic to undermine America’s efforts to establish a democratic political system in Yemen.
“The Iranians want to build influence in Yemen, both internally and more broadly in the region by establishing a foothold in the Arabian Peninsula. It’s something that’s naturally regarded as a security threat to Saudi Arabia and the rest of the GCC states. There is evidence that Hezbollah and Hamas support this Iranian effort. We are aware of a southern Yemeni presence in Beirut that has been used as a conduit for Iranian support for obstruction in southern Yemen,” the paper quoted Feierstein as saying in remarks published in Arabic.
Interestingly, America’s top Jewish scholar, professor Noam Chomsky said in New York on April 28, 2011 that Washington considers democratic ME a threat.
The US Zionist Jew Sen. Joe Lieberman has long been campaigning for American boots in Yemen due to country’s strategic importance to Israel.
On July 10, daily English al-akhbar published Yemeni journalist Jamal Jubran’s article, entitled ‘US Ambassador in Yemen: The New Dictator‘ in which he wrote:
“The ambassador’s use of the first person when discussing Yemeni affairs strikes Muhammad Ayesh, editor of the independent newspaper al-Awwali, as telling. It serves to cast him not just as Yemen’s “governor,” but as a leader propelled by a transformative revolution into the country’s top position. “The political and military classes surrendered the country’s affairs completely to the world powers, and then preoccupied themselves with their internecine struggles,” Ayesh remarks. He notes that the country’s factions were incapable of reaching agreement on clearing barricades and evacuating armed forces from the major cities without the intercession of the US ambassador.
Journalist and political analyst Mansour Hael agrees that it is the weakness and fragmentation of the country’s political groups that is most to blame for turning the US ambassador into “the chief of country’s political and security operations room,” and effectively giving him the final say on a host of domestic issues.
“Yemenis have come to be governed by a state of division, horizontal and vertical. The national unity government is split, and there’s a split between civil society organizations and the political parties,” says Hael, who edits the newspaper al-Tajammu. “That’s what allows the American ambassador to hold the all the political strings in Yemen.”
The other Muslim Shia majority country (70%) facing the US democracy agenda in the Muslim East, Bahrain, had an Israeli Jew, Joseph Adam Ereli, as Washington’s ambassador until last year.
