What after Saleh


Ali Abdullah Saleh, the former Yemeni president, was assassinated by the hands of Iran’s arm in Yemen. He was assassinated by the Houthis just as former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated by the hands of Iran’s terrorist wing, Hezbollah, in Lebanon. This is a barbaric model that has been unleashed by Iran in the region under an abhorrent sectarian umbrella. Confrontation or conflict with Iran is not a sectarian conflict nor is it a political conflict as it is always described, but a conflict between the humanitarian and civil project and co-existence in return for the brutal mission that Iran is carrying out to the region.

History bears witness to the fact that wherever Iran interfered, blood flowed like waterfalls. Iran is on a “non-human” mission. The project of exporting its revolution calls for the capitulation of its opponents, stirring up sectarian strife, sowing ideological division and the assassination of all leading personalities who enjoy a great deal of goodwill among their people and are quite popular in the political arena. What is happening in Yemen today and in other capitals of the Arab world is neither just interference in the internal affairs of the Arab states, nor an occupation but an aggression, no less dangerous than the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

We are facing a non-civilized and inhumane project, an aggressive and privileged one to be allowed to remain, expand and maintain. Today, there is a dividing line and it is not permissible to compliment it. The countries that support the Iranian project with economic, political, media and banking relations in all forms must take a very clear position because the “compliments” continue in the double message that reaches them. Countries such as Qatar, Lebanon, Turkey and others, all of which have influential relations with the Iranian mission, for which the whole region pays in one way or another.

The killing of Ali Abdullah Saleh does not end the conflict in Yemen. On the contrary, Yemen is a tribal society that believes in venegeance and retaliation, and it is expected that the death of the man will unite the parties in front of the common enemy, that is, the malicious Iranian mission and its mercenaries. The coming days will witness the movement of teams to rescue their country from the occupation of Houthis and the initial reaction confirms that there is anguish and bitterness and oppression and a desire for revenge because the self-disgrace and disgrace of the Iranian media and its generosity for Yemen and its people will not be accepted by the people of Yemen.
