(1) Bernard Lewis, a well-known American thinker, called for dismissing Iran through the consolidation of the Arab world Sunnis and as a matter of facing of an ideology with Iran.
The Egyptian journalist and famous intellectual Mohamed Hassanein Heikal said all what is happening in Syria and the Arab world is only a theater to strike Iran.
There is an ongoing Sunni-Shiite screening in the entire region; there are countries which will suffer a hit social fabric for decades to come due to the presence of such sort of screening in places like Iraq and Lebanon, where the screening dose will be more injected by the support of countries like Saudi Arabia. Besides, there are countries which will be partially infected such as Yemen, for there is an ongoing screening on its ground, though it is not like the one in Iraq and Lebanon.
We saw how the case of Tariq al-Hashimi was dealt with and how the diplomatic protocol was shattered among the countries, that the Vice President who had been convicted by an Iraqi court, was moving between Qatar and Saudi Arabia less as a browbeaten brother. Also, there was a big surprise of Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri’s coming out- the only Iraqi figure who had not been tried in the few past months as one of Saddam’s aides- when he delivered a statement against Shiites Safavids. So, who was hiding al-Douri and why did he urge him to come out?
According to the Pentagon, these three countries: Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey bring fighters to have them armed and sheltered in camps located in Turkey under the banner of refugee camps. This was reportedly confirmed in the Turkish press which revealed that taking photos in camps was prevented because the camps are harboring insurgents and not refugees. The reason behind that is to overthrow the Syrian President Bashar al-Asad. But deep inside lies a guillotine to cut the head of the Iranian regime.
There are promises given to the Israeli side by the United States and its strategic allies, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, in order to win the race; and by the race I mean fallout of Assad as well as the weakening of Iran and aborting its nuclear program before it completes the making of a nuclear bomb. Moreover, Israel was given the secret role of assassinating the Iranian nuclear scientists along with deploying web viruses to delay the nuclear bomb process before the fallout of the Syrian regime.
As for the Saudi and Qatari sides, they were given the task of winning and honing the Sunni hearts. They have dozens of satellite channels that are specialized in foregrounding the history of Sunni-Shiite divide throughout the Islamic civilization, and stepping up the use of Safavid Raafidis labels and their threat, which is considered as greater than the Israeli one on the Sunni Arabs.
Moreover, the Saudi Arabia called on the side which is well controlling: al-Sunna and al-Jama’ah, as they call themselves- a trend tamed by the Saudi intelligence, and used whenever it wants to spread leaflets, speeches, brochures, cassettes and even MP3 audio formats and others; these are all exhorted to pay attention to the threat of the Shiite Safavids.
The Holy month of Ramadan will be utilized for informational and religious propagandas in such a context, even in the prayers and speeches at the Holy Mosque of Mecca. In regard to the media, mbc Group of Saudi Prince al-Waleed Bin Ibrahim, orbiting within the Saudi regime, has produced the largest Arabic drama series to be broadcasted during Ramadan month.
It displays the biography of Omar Ibn al-Khattab (one of Prophet Mohammed’s close companions), as focusing on his crucial role in the elimination of the Persian state back then. However, it is strange that a Saudi channel produces such a series which embodies the role of a great companion like Omar, but perhaps the situation requires it!
(2) In light of all of this, the Information Minister Ali al-Amrani (avowed JMP) appeared to the public along with the JMP leaders and the Islah Party: the trailer which leads the entire bloc with a Saudi-allied dictatorship and reliance on the political history of Yemen.
Al-Amrani came out to say that an Iranian spy network operating in Aden and Taiz has been discovered. Since then, the Islah media has been flaring up, drawing a picture of a pierced sovereignty with imminent danger, and raising demands for the expulsion of the Iranian ambassador. I cannot rule out that Iran is seeking to achieve some of its interests in Yemen, the historically prolific land..
In all the countries where the sovereignty presence is not distorted, the interventions in regard to the internal affairs of any state are almost dealt with equally, because there is nothing called a benign intervention or a malignant. Any intervention of any State must be treated at the same level. If you look, from a ‹sovereign perspective›, into the Islah press standing for the first time in the face of the Iranian intervention , you will find that it is not a surprise in the normal situation. But we are in a situation in which Saudi Arabia has deleted the term (rule) from the dictionary of Yemen›s political life for decades.
For example, any Yemeni citizen is entitled to raise a complaint to the Attorney General against the Special Committee members which Saudi Arabia pays them funds to implement its agenda in Yemen. Al-Sharea (Street) newspaper published the members› names and the amounts they receive.
Any Yemeni citizen has the right to accuse this committee of espionage for Saudi Arabia. In the definition of law whoever is receiving funds from another state to implement its Agenda, is unquestionably defined as a spy. But how the Yemeni mentality has been domesticated to accept it for granted. Aren›t we entitled to expel the Saudi ambassador after finding out about that special committee in Yemen.
Yes that ambassador himself whose state prevented the Yemeni pilgrims to go for Hajj, because another Saudi kidnapped the Saudi Consul on the territory of Yemen. What›s more, the Saud deputy bargained for the release of Saudi women in the interior prisons. What kind of a Saudi revel we see on the land of Yemen. Who revealed the story of the parcel bombs? A Saudi Spy on the Yemeni land ! Who detect the recent attempt to blow up the plane? A Saudi Spy on Yemeni land in recognition of the Saudi intelligence!
Where was the Islah press standing at that time for Yemen›s sovereignty?!
Everyone knows that Saudi Arabia does not considered Yemen as a normal country and worth-respecting. Saudi Arabia is dealing with Yemen as the treatment of the Saudi sponsor (Kafeel) to the Yemeni person. Saudi Arabia, in fact, does what it wants to do in Yemen as simple as that.
I have written in a previous article about the most prominent challenges facing President Hadi including the presence of al-Qaeda in Abyan province .
However, I said that the main challenge to President Hadi is the Islah Party leaders because they will push Hadi to face the Iran-Houthis. Hadi who is known for his non-confrontational and like-minded personality went out to threaten Iran which on the face of it appeared as a success for the Islah party leaders.
It seems that Saudi Arabia, which backed the GCC deal and was the first vote for president Hadi, wants to use all this in its regional battle for relocating its allies in Yemen at this particular time by inventing the story of the Iranian spy network.
