In 2010, Jew Senator Joe Lieberman had predicted that America’s future war will be in Yemen. Lieberman was indirectly stating the strategic importance of Yemen for the Zionist entity. Yemen’s coastal Red Sea (which leads to Suez Cannal, Mediterranean and Dead Sea) is the only international water-way which links the Zionist entity with the outside world.
It seems, Iran’s political support for the Shia-majority Houthi resistance against the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia ‘Axis of Evil’ has started showing good results.
Viktor Titov PhD, a Russian geopolitical expert on Middle East affairs wrote on September 12, 2014: “If (Yemen’s) president and the prime minister do not rally their efforts, then the Houthis will get an easy victory without massive use of force or even efforts. This will result in creation of a pro-Iran Shia Islamic state in the north, which in turn force southerners to separate and create their own country and that is nothing less than a total rebalance of powers in the region.”
The US, Israel and Saudi Arabia have accused the Islamic Republic for interfering in Yemen’s internal affairs by providing support for the marginalized Houthis against the regime in Sana’a. Houthis tribes which make almost half of Yemeni population, have been waging decades-long struggle to secure their rightful place in Yemen. Their struggle is lead by Ansar Allah (supporters of Allah), an Islamist organization.
Yemen had been occupied by the Ottomans, British and Egypt in the past. Saudi Arabia has been meddling in Yemen affairs by running a proxy war the United States and Israel to contain Iranian influence even when the country was divided into the communist-ruled South and Shia Zaydi dynasty in the North until 1990 unification of the country. Currently, it is supporting the pro-USrael regime of president Abed Rabbo Mansour Haddi.
Last week, the security forces killed seven and wounded several dozens of Houthis demonstrators who have blamed the ruling Islamic Reform Party (al-Islah) being using the tactics of the former military dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was deposed in 2011.
On September 12, 2014, Labanese Al-Akhbar published an article written by Mona Safwan, entitle ‘How Iran succeeded in Yemen while Saudi Arabia failed’.
“You cannot run a country with only money. Had Saudi Arabia learned this lesson, it would have avoided its resounding failure in Yemen. The Kingdom could not protect its rear from the south as result of its mistaken policies in the small country. Whereas the geographically distant Iran knew how to manage its policies in Yemen by using “reasons” than money. The result is Iran surpass Saudi Arabia in Yemen,” she said.
That stands true for both the United States and its Zionist masters in Tel Aviv. On July 30, 2014, Jewish writer Robert Kozak posted an article entitled ‘Israel Faces Latin American Backlash‘ in the Wall Street Journal, in which he lamented that both Israel and the United States have been isolated thanks to Iranian foreign policy under former president Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
