TEHRAN â ???? Iraqi political analyst describes Yemeni fighters as « a source of pride and inspiration for Arabs and Muslims ». due to their opposition to the war waged by Saudi Arabia.
Ali Fahim tells the Tehran Times that the Saudi Arabia-led war against Yemen was « a total failure ». .
He also says: « We should take into account that Yemen is originally a poor country with an agricultural economy that has no natural resources and whose people have lived in closed rooms and are engaged in domestic wars. « ???? says Fahim.
Q: How do you measure the impact of the recent Yemeni armed forces missile attack on the Saudi Aramco in Jeddah?
A: The rocket attack on the Saudi Aramco facility was not and will not be the first. This was preceded by an attack on the same facility in Khurais and Abqaiq almost a year ago.
The significance of this attack, which affected the oil giant Saudi Aramco in exceptional condition, is that it was carried out at the end of the G20 summit hosted by Riyadh and news of the secret meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu emerged and the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the kingdom.
The attack created a lot of media coverage as it stemmed from the Saudi desire to normalize its relations with Israel and the name of the cruise missiles (Quds 2) targeting Aramco. It carries the message that Ansarullah plans to upgrade his missile to reach Tel Aviv.
This cannot be overlooked, especially since this attack took place during the phase of the change of president in the U.. S.. . and a shift in American politics.
There are two guidelines in the U. . S.. . this may be relatively different in relation to the war in Yemen; Trump supports Riyadh and the Saudi Arabia-led coalition by providing them with experts, weapons and even pilots, while Biden’s policies tend to oppose U.. S.. . Meddling in Yemen.
Biden has promised not to deliver arms to Saudi Arabia and to reduce U.. S.. . Support for the ongoing war in Yemen at the lowest levels.
This strike targeted the Saudi economic artery as Aramco is a great symbol of the Saudi kingdom. and on the ground, the attack on oil exports and shipping in the Red Sea affected.
Because of this, the world oil price has risen to record levels and we can measure the effectiveness and importance of this strike by the Saudi response as he filed a complaint with the Security Council and viewed the strike as a threat to global navigation in the region.
???? Indeed, Yemenis have become a source of pride and inspiration for Arabs and Muslims because of their amazing achievements to be studied in institutes and universities around the world. Q: Do you think the Saudi Arabia-led war in Yemen has achieved any significant success?
A: The Saudi Arabia-led coalition in Yemen has absolutely no successes. After nearly six years of fierce war in which all kinds of weapons, including those internationally banned, were used by an army that was considered American and British advisers in terms of weapons, training, possession of modern technology and working with one of the most advanced armies in the world even the Israelis, who are directly contributing to the war, could not undermine Ansarullah’s influence in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia has set its political goals to restore what they call « Yemeni legitimacy ». and to return the ousted Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi while their military objective is to eliminate the Houthi group in order to secure the borders of the Saudi kingdom in the south.
Today, the Saudi government is facing a large budget deficit and high prices for fuel and services. In the first nine months of 2020, the deficit reached 184. 11 billion (Saudi) rials, or roughly $ 49. 11 billion.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Saudi Arabia spent huge sums of money buying weapons and continuing the war against Yemen. The U. S.. . The Security Assistance Monitor states that Saudi Arabia spent $ 82 billion buying weapons from the United States. S.. . , France, Great Britain, Germany, Spain and Italy, including the purchase of weapons, ammunition and personnel for military training. This makes Saudi Arabia the third country in the world in terms of arms spending after China and the United States. S.. .
The Washington Institute for Middle East Studies also stated in a report that Saudi Arabia is spending five to six billion dollars a month on the war against Yemen.
The question is, what did it accomplish during this war? The answer is a total failure! Saudi Arabia has failed to return what it calls legitimacy to the country and has failed to undermine the Houthis. On the contrary, the result is that the Houthis have increased their military strength and, after developing their combat skills, especially missiles and drones, are targeting new targets in Saudi Arabia, as they achieve great victories on the ground.
Now Saudi Arabia is looking for solutions and mediators to lift the siege and create a buffer zone between its borders and the Houthis in the southern provinces.
A: Indeed, Yemenis have become a source of pride and inspiration for Arabs and Muslims because of their amazing achievements to be studied in institutes and universities around the world.
So we should take into account that Yemen is originally a poor country with an agricultural economy that has no natural resources and whose people have lived in an enclosed space and are engaged in internal wars.
All of this has made the Yemeni citizen a man who is tenacious to be broken. He is strong and a fighter who does not accept humiliation, submission, and compromise on his principles.
This was done under sincere, loyal and wise leadership that never gives in to the forces of global arrogant forces. All of this can be traced back to an Islamic teaching that was shaped in the form of a Hussaini belief that loves martyrdom for the sake of truth. The Yemeni leadership has made every effort to educate the resilient Yemeni man.
Q: How do you see Saudi policies and performance regarding human rights in Yemen?
A: Saudi Arabia is committing crimes that endanger humanity in Yemen and which manifestly violate human rights through brutal aggression and the gruesome siege of the Yemenis, preventing them from gaining access to medicines, food and oil products. Attempts have been made to starve the Yemeni people.
The Saudi Arabia-led coalition is committing war crimes amid the silence of the world community and international organizations and the negligence or even of Islamic and Arab countries after bribing regimes and organizations to support this blatant injustice. The world is witness to innocent citizens who face death from daily bombing, famine and disease.
It is time for the world community to face these crimes while United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned a few days ago of the worst famine in Yemen, which could threaten the lives of millions in decades.
5- It is said that after the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Soviet Union, the U. . S.. . has taken the approach of Samuel Huntington (who theorized the clash of civilizations) to continue the conflict and create a permanent imaginary enemy, this time Muslims replacing the Soviets. This is supposed to portray Muslims as a threat to the existence and national security of Americans. What’s your analysis?
The U. . S.. . falls back on the fourth generation of wars, which means exacerbating internal conflicts and distracting Islamic nations by creating an internal crisis to pave the way for division and fragmentation.
The role of America and Israel is to monitor and sell weapons and then reap the rewards with no effort or fatigue. This strategy has been applied in the Arab East and the Arab Peninsula, so human human and financial capacities are exhausted from futile wars that have brought nothing but destruction and devastation to the region.
If this money had been spent on sustainable development in these countries and investing in the training of Arab experts and scientists, we would have been on the list of advanced countries.
Countries with financial power such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Qatar stir up conflicts and conflicts in all Arab countries and spark wars throughout the Islamic world, from Iraq to Syria, Libya, Yemen, Ethiopia and Morocco.
All of these wars are under U. . S.. . Overseeing and serving Israel’s security in the region. If Washington decides to end the war in Yemen, the Saudis will not dare to oppose and they will no longer prolong it. But Yemen has all the qualities that need to be on the American blacklist, including the growth of the Islamic faith, opposition to American hegemony, participation in the axis of resistance, and acceptance of anti-American and Israeli slogans and their important geographic location. All of these and other factors have convinced Americans that Yemen will be a potential power that could challenge Israel and its allies in the (Persian) Gulf states.
