Saudi Arabia’s criminal aggression in the region provides the Israeli
regime with the best cover it can ask for. “Before you [Europe] criticise us
for bombing Palestinians in Gaza, look what the Saudis are doing in Yemen”,
said an Israeli regime official. Saudis should be ashamed of their Israel-like aggression
against the people of Yemen.
It is clear now, Saudi Arabia is copying
Israel’s aggression against the Palestinians for its ongoing aggression against
the defenceless people of Yemen in flagrant violation of international
humanitarian and Islamic laws.
The world’s largest buyer of Western-made
armaments is committing war crimes by deliberately and indiscriminately
attacking civilians and destroying Yemeni vital civilian infrastructures,
including schools hospitals, pharmaceutical plants, roads and drinking water.
Saudi air force – guided by U.S. and British Special Forces guided – has systematically bombed Yemen’s civilian
infrastructure in broad daylight. A recent UN
report to the Security Council revealed that the Saudi regime have: “conducted
airstrikes targeting civilians and civilian objects … including camps for
internally displaced persons and refugees; civilian gatherings, including
weddings; civilian vehicles, including buses; civilian residential areas;
medical facilities; schools; mosques; markets, factories and food storage
warehouses; and other essential civilian infrastructure, such as the airport in
Sanaa, the port in Hodeida and domestic transit routes.”
United Nations figures, more than 8000 Yemenis have been killed. A recent
report by UNICEF reveals that more than 537,000 children facing malnutrition,
imminent famine and death. More than 500,000 Yemeni children are on the verge
of starvation enforced by the Saudi regime. The Saudi aggression against the
people of Yemen is supported by daily deliveries of U.S., British, French and
Israeli weapons and ammunition, including cluster bombs and on the ground
military advisors in flagrant violation of international law.
In October 2015, the World Health
Organization (WHO) condemned the bombing of a Médecins Sans Frontières’ (MSF)
supported hospital in Saada province in northern Yemen As a consequence of this
deliberate aggression more than 200.000 people were left without medical care.
"People do not dare to go to hospitals because they are afraid that they
are targeted and, even if they want to go they may not have the means – even
where public transport does exist, it is very expensive because of the fuel
problems", said a statement by MSF. More than 3 million Yemenis have
become internally displaced persons and are in need of shelters.
Furthermore, in violation of The Hague Convention, one of the humanity’s
oldest civilisations did not escape Saudi terror and war crimes. According to Amt al-Rzaq Jhaf, the undersecretary of the General
Authority to Maintain Historic Site: “The [Saudi]
coalition airstrikes destroyed 52 archaeological sites, notably Asaad al-Kamal
cave in Ibb province, the Cairo Citadel in Taiz province, Awam Temple, the
Temple of the Sun, the Temple of Bran, Baraqish graveyard, the Great Dam of
Marib and the historical walls of the city of Saada.” For more than 18 centuries, Kawkaban fortified citadel north of the
Capital Sanaa, has managed to preserve its strength and beauty, only to be
attacked and destroyed by Saudi terrorists on 14 February 2016, added Ahmed
Alwly. (Al-Monitor, 06 March 2016).
regime’s brutality and despotic rule, Western politicians and the
Zionist-controlled media love Saudi Arabia, but they hate Islam and Muslims
even more. Saudi Arabia distorts the true teaching and image of Islam as a way
of life – true Islam has been hijacked by Saudi Wahhabism. Saudi Arabia is used by Western political and
media establishments not only to serve their Anglo-Zionist interests, but also
as an example to demonise Islam, Arabs and Muslims in general, because people
(Westerners in particular) see Muslims and Arabs, in particular, through
Saudi Arabia’s extremism. In other word, Saudi Arabia validate Western
distorted perception of Islam and anti-Muslim false propaganda. It is not
Islam; it is Saudis’ own making. (For more on this, see: Marko
Marjanovich). As a proxy U.S. vassal, no other
country in the world can match Saudi Arabia’s service to AngloZionist
It is ironic
that, Saudi Arabia – with Western collusions – was “elected” chair of the UN Human
Rights Council. It is clear that, “democracy” and “human rights” are empty
words regurgitated by Western leaders to manipulate Western public and justify
wars. It is also ironic that North Korea (DPRK) is called a “brutal regime” by Western
leaders, while Saudi Arabia, Israel and Turkey are called “democratic” nations.
When it comes to abuses of human rights
and international law, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Turkey hold the world’s worst
is something seriously wrong with Western “democracy” and hypocrisy when the
French regime of Francois Holland awarded the Legion
d'Honneur (France’s highest honour) on one member of the Saudi regime for its
“efforts in the fight against terrorism and extremism”. It is safe to say that
the U.S. and its Western allies have a deep love affair with murderous
dictators and brutal regimes that they are arming and financing.
history, the U.S. (and its allies) stood “shoulder to shoulder” with the
world’s most vicious dictators and murderous regimes. The world’s worst
despots, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, and Turkey are a case in point.
If Western regimes are truly concerned
about the Syrian people (and refugees fleeing Western-sponsored terrorism) why
they are not concern about the people of Yemen? The answer is simple: the
Syrian people are fighting Western-sponsored terrorists, the people of Yemen
are resisting Western-sponsored Saudi terror. The aim of the Saudis is linked
to Western interest of controlling oil. Since 2006, the Saudi regime – with
U.S. pressure – have been intimidating and coercing successive Yemeni
government to allow the Saudi regime to construct oil pipelines to transport
Saudi oils from oil fields in the Gulf to Port Eden in southern Yemen. It is
evident that the U.S., Israel, Britain and other European states are deeply
involved in the (Saudi-led) war of aggression on Yemen.
It is important to remember that Saudi
Arabia has a treacherous history of conspiring with the U.S., Israel and other
despots in the region against Arab nations. Saudi Arabia, the new Israel, is not
shy of collaborating with the Zionist regime (and terror network like the C.I.A.,
ISIS and al-Qaeda) in its war against the people of Iraq, Libya, Iran, Syria
and Yemen. The Saudi regime collaborated with the
Israeli regime and is unmindful of Israel’s war crimes, crimes against humanity
against the Palestinian people. The two artificial regimes have
collaborated against Arab nations from the day of their inceptions. Saudi Arabia’s criminal record is too long to
In addition to its ongoing aggression
against Yemen, on 13 February 2016, Saudi Arabia deployed its warplanes to
Turkey ostensibly to help the Turks in their desire to invade Syria, on the
pretext of “fighting ISIS” terrorists.
Apparently, Saudi Arabia has “Special
Forces” that will be used in a joint ground operation with the Turks, waiting
for green light from Washington.
This sounds like satire, but it is not. How
can Saudi Arabia be anti-ISIS terrorists when Saudi leaders and other Gulf
despots (Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, UAE, etc.) have been financing and arming the
terrorists for years? In fact, ISIS terrorists have been claiming
responsibility for horrendous terrorist acts in Yemen.
Together with Turkey, a gangster state
ruled by the Erdogan’s militia and the Turkish Mafia, Saudi Arabia is
contemplating invading Syria with U.S.-Israel’s support. The Saudi regime has reportedly prepared 150,000 troops in
what the Saudis described as the largest since the 1991 U.S. aggression against
Iraq. Furthermore, on 05 March 2016, the Saudi regime have moved 4 F-15S fighter jets to the Incirlik air base in Turkey. The aim of
the aggression will be, not to fight ISIS terrorists, but to defend them from
the combined Russian air force and the Syrian Arab Army attacks and break-up
Syria. They are waiting for U.S.-NATO military enforcements. They can’t do it
on their own. Of course, any aggression against Syria will be in flagrant
violation of international law. It will be a war crime to advance Israel’s
The war on Syria is benefiting the Turkish
regime enormously. The Erdogan’s regime is “weaponising” the refugees not only
to make a kill ($6.6 billion from the EU), but also using the refugees as
political bargain chips. EU leaders who are concerned about refugees should
stop financing and supporting terrorism and illegal wars. Moreover, instead of
financing Erdogan’s addiction to crimes, EU leaders should put pressure on the Erdogan
to stop recruiting terrorists and sporting terrorism. Sadly, the European
public seem oblivious. It takes lots of ignorance to protest against refugees
while ignoring (and even supporting) the wars that caused people to flee.
Finally, in order to please Israel
and the U.S., Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf Sheikhdom regimes have just
declared the legitimate Lebanese Resistance Movement and Political Party,
Hezbollah, a “terrorist” organisation. A statement by the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said: “In a step that is in line with
Israeli policy, the GCC [the Saudi-led Gulf Sheikhdoms] issued a decision
classifying Hezbollah a terrorist organization because it is confronting the
Zionist project in the region and the Israeli enemy through its great
sacrifices which have resonated across the Arab and Muslim nations.”
know that, the Saudi regime and its allies do
not consider ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists and without their (finance and arms)
support, ISIS wouldn’t exist today.
Saudi Arabia’s political leaders should be
utterly ashamed for their aggression in Yemen, and their despicable rhetoric to
invade Syria. Like the people of Yemen, the people of Syria despise Saudi
leaders more than they despise Israeli leaders. If Saudi leaders and their
bribed and coerced (Arab and non-Arab) allies have the slightest courage and
concerns – they never had – for “human rights” and “democracy” in the region,
they should liberate Palestine from the Zionist occupiers and clean their own
backyard. These illegitimate regimes have been proven to be nothing but
Like the Israeli regime, the Saudi regime
have committed and continues to commit war crimes against the Arab people of
the region. The ongoing Saudi aggression against the people of Yemen and Saudi
Arabia’s role criminal in arming and financing terrorists in Syria are crimes
of aggression and should be condemned.
