Last month, Trump’s first so-called counter-terrorism operation cost one US Seal dead and six others wounded during an operation against Shi’ite militia fighting Saudi forces in Bayda Province of Yemen.
Trump’s reaction to American soldier’s death was no surprise to Muslims.
“Americans are saddened this morning with news that a life of a heroic service member has been taken in our fight against the evil of radical Islamic terrorism. My deepest thoughts and humblest prayers are with the family of this fallen service member. I also pray for a quick and complete recovery for the brave service members who sustained injuries,” Trump said in a statement.
Naturally, Christian Zionists like Donald Trump are not supposed to acknowledge that according to FBI, 94% terrorist activities against US interests were carried out by radical Christan and Jew terrorists.
However, the brave Seal were able to kill a few dozen civilian – mostly women and children including 8-year-old daughter of US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki (here).
On February 7, Yemen government informed the White House that it was revoking its permission for the Pentagon to operate ground operations against the so-called terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda – both US-Israel proxy armies (here, here).
A pro-Israel regime in Sana’a is very important for the Zionist entity. Yemen occupies a strategic position at the entrance to the Red Sea and its control of the Bab-el-Mandebo, Israel’s outlet to Indian Ocean and the Far East. Theodor Herzl was of the opinion that the Jewish occupation of Palestine couldn’t survive much longer without Lebanon’s Litani River and trade connection to the outside world without Red Sea.
This is not the first time Saudi ‘royals’ are fighting a US-Israel proxy war in Yemen. In 1962, Washington, Riyadh, Tel Aviv and Tehran under King Reza Shah armed Zaidi Shi’ite ruler Imam al-Badr, whose family ruled Yemen nearly 1,000 years. The communist rebellion against Imam al-Badr in the late 1950s was supported by Egypt under president Col. Gamal Abdul Nasser (d. 1970).
In 2010, Jewish Senator Joe Lieberman told Fox News: “Iraq was yesterday war. Afghanistan is today’s war. If we don’t act preemptively, Yemen could be our next war. That’s the danger we face.”
Maybe, it’s time for the anti-Muslim hawks in Donald Trump’s cabinet to realize that the US forces have been defeated in both Iraq and Afghanistan – and their fate doesn’t look different in Yemen either.
The current Houthi regime fighting US-Israel-Saudi Arabia is a branch of Zaidi Shi’ites – but much different from Iranian, Iraqi and Lenanese Shi’ites in theology.
