The western Jewish-controlled politicians and mainstream media have long declared the bloody conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen as Sunni-Shia conflict or “proxy wars” between Saudi Arabia and Iran. However, they hate to admit that before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the US, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Israel supported Yemen’s Zaidi ruler Imam Muhammad al-Bader during Saudi-Egypt war in Yemen in 1962. At that time, anti-Israel Nasserite Egypt was the ‘mullah-ruled’ Iran.
According to Israeli hasbara (propaganda) network, Houthis (Shias), Hamas (Sunnis), Islamic Jihad (Sunnis), Hizbullah (Shias) and Syrian Assad regime (non-religious Ba’athists) are all Iran’s “proxies”. However, they all receive only a fraction of monetary aid from Iran as compared to what Israel has received from United States ($3 trillion) and Saudi Arabia ($12 billion).
A secret cable confirms that Tehran doesn’t supply arms to Houthis. The Zaidi Shia fighters buy them from the Yemeni black market and sometimes from Yemeni army.
On July 20, 2015, Ariela Gross, director of German Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FEF) in Yemen, penned an article, saying that diplomacy is the only solution for Yemen. The FEF, established by Germany’s second largest political party, Social Democrats (SPD) in honor of its leader and country’s first president Friedrich Ebert, from 1919 until his death in office in 1925. Ebert was born to a Jewish mother, Katharina Hinkel (d. 1897).
“Until now, the Saudi military operation has proved extremely short-sighted and largely failed to deliver. Despite the massive airstrikes, the Houthis have managed to hold their territorial control and extended the conflict to Saudi-Yemeni border region. The only tangible result is large scale destruction (Israeli-style) of Yemeni infrastructure, as well as a society being ripped apart by a multi-layered conflict,” wrote Ms Gross.
On Sunday, spokesperson for the Houthis movement rejected western media claim that anti-Houthis fighters have snatched Aden city from Houthis fighters.
