The Saudi ambassador to the United States, Adel al-Jubair, announced on Thursday morning, 26/03/2015, the beginning of a military offensive against the Houthis comprising of air-strikes launched by a ten-state coalition, including all the Gulf states, except Oman. He mentioned that Saudi Arabia had consulted with the United States before taking this step. The Egyptian Foreign Minister announced the participation of Egypt and that four Egyptian naval warships were on their way to the Gulf of Aden. For his part, the Sudanese army spokesperson said, “Sudan will participate based on our Islamic responsibility. We will not remain idle while the Muslim’s Qibla and the land of Revelation is facing danger.”
The jets and battleship of these rulers have mobilized to invade Yemen, instead of attacking the Jewish entity, even though it is closer to them! The worst of their justifications is that this attack is to protect the Qibla of the Muslims, whilst it is has not been invaded. On the other hand, the first Qibla of the Muslims has been invaded, screaming and shouting out for help! The jets of these rulers have been mobilized towards Yemen in service of the agendas of the disbelieving colonialists, after never being mobilized to save the Blessed Land that has been occupied by those most severe in enmity against the Muslims!
It is clear to those of insight that what is occurring in Yemen is a struggle between America and its partisans, the Houthis and others, on one side, and Britain and its partisans, Hadi, Saleh and their followers on the other side, as per what we elucidated in our previous releases on this matter:
“The struggle in Yemen rages between two sides: America, its followers and agents and Britain, its followers and agents. Each side employs its own political styles. America proceeds by employing the material force of the Houthis, the movement in the South and Iran, in addition to negotiations by way Jamal Benomar (UN Special Advisor on Yemen). Britain employs political shrewdness by way of using Hadi and his presidency to resist US pressure and prevent her from taking any sensitive position of power. Concurrently, it pushed Saleh and his men with the Houthis, such that if Hadi fails against them, Britain still acquires a portion in the ruling through Saleh. This is what is occurring in Yemen. Britain no longer has overriding dominance in Yemen as she did in the past. At the same time, she is unable to militarily confront America and her agents. Thus, she opted for the way of shrewd political maneuvers through her two agents, Hadi and Saleh.” (01/10/2014)
America has supported the Houthis through Iran with weapons so that they are able to dominate Yemen by force. She realizes that the political medium in Yemen is dominated by Britain’s men. Thus, the Houthis thought they had the power to dominate Yemen. They besieged the president to force him to give them what they sought for the laws they had issued. He would agree, then delay in implementation…until they imposed house arrest on him but he escaped, moving to Aden. They pursued him there, but he escaped again. Thus the struggle became prolonged for the Houthis who spread themselves in the land, but without getting what they wanted, except for Saleh’s men who went with them, in order to share in the prize if they won against Hadi, but to leave them if they failed or even came close!
The first indications of this are now apparent. The General People’s Congress, headed by ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh, announced that, “it has nothing to do with moves by the Houthi armed group and its attempts to overthrow the southern provinces and the completion of the coup against the legitimate authority in the country.” A statement issued by the General Committee of its Political Bureau said, “What is happening in Yemen is the result of a power struggle between other parties to which the General People’s Congress has no relation at all.” (al-Arabiya, 26/03/2015) As if it had not been an ally in war and peace with the Houthis just yesterday! Of course, it will not be strange if it returns to its original position, if the Houthis are successful, for agents swiftly change their skin, in accordance with the role set for them by their masters! Despicable, indeed, is what they do.
America realized that the Houthis found themselves in a shambles. They had extended themselves across Yemen, but were unable to either successfully dominate or to return to their stronghold in the north. She therefore decided to save them through limited military action, by which she seeks to hit two birds with one stone: to show them as victims, after the people had begun to see them as aggressors; and to create the atmosphere for emergency negotiations, to come thereby to a compromise solution. This is her well-trodden path, with respect to what she is unable to take alone.
All of this has become clearer by following what took place, and is taking place. Saudi Arabia consulted with America before the military action and those undertaking the active military role - Salman and Sisi - are American agents. As for the Gulf states, Jordan and Morocco, their role is more political, as per the British habit in countering America, such that she remains in the picture and has a place in the forthcoming negotiations, in order to take a share in the distribution of influence. While pressing military action succeeds at times, in opening the door of negotiation, it also fails at times, destabilizing matters anew, engulfing Yemen in its fire - Yemen, who was content and happy a time not long ago…when her pure land was not desecrated by the feet of agents and disbelieving colonialists.
O Muslims! These are our rulers. They are the biggest calamity afflicting us. If we do not exert all effort in removing this calamity from us it will envelop us resulting in great loss and corruption. Our resources have been pillaged, our blood spilled and we did not give due regard to the saying of Allah (swt), ((وَاتَّقُوا فِتْنَةً لَا تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْكُمْ خَاصَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ)) “Fear the tribulation that will not afflict those of you who oppressed alone and know that Allah is severe in retribution,” and the saying of the Messenger (saw), «إِنَّ النَّاسَ إِذَا رَأَوْا ظَالِمًا، فَلَمْ يَأْخُذُوا عَلَى يَدَيْهِ أَوْشَكَ أَنْ يَعُمَّهُمُ اللَّهُ بِعِقَابٍ مِنْهُ» “When the people see an oppressor and do not prevent him, it is near that Allah encompasses them all with punishment.” (Tirmidhi)
These are our rulers. Palestine, the land of Isra and Mi’raj and the first Qibla, screams out for help, but their refuse. It seeks their support but they do not respond, as if there are covers over their eyes and ears. Yet they rush in subservience to execute the interests of the disbelieving colonialists. You do not see their jets, tanks and battleships mobilizing against the enemies of Islam and Muslims. Nay, they remain parked in their barracks, resting. However, they awaken and roar at the mere indication of political leaders who have no regard for the believer, of relation or covenant. They show themselves as grand and mighty to their people, but are smaller than children in front of the enemies. Allah destroy them, how they are perverted!
O Muslims: saving Yemen from this tribulation will neither be realised by supporting the partisans of Britain or America, nor by pretending to support one or the other. Rather, it will be realised by its people vigorously mobilizing, sincerely for Allah, the Exalted, remaining truthful to His Messenger (saw), to remove the oppressors from both sides, save the land from their treachery, and return Yemen to its origin: the land of Iman and Hikmah, raising the al-Uqab, the banner of the Messenger of Allah (saw), and ruling by the Shariah of Allah under the Khilafah Rashidah on the model of Prophethood.
((وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۞ بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ))
“That day, the believers will rejoice with the victory of Allah; He gives victory to whom He wills, the Mighty, the Merciful.” [Ar-Rum: 4-5]
O Muslims, O people of Yemen: Hizb ut Tahrir directs you honestly and sincerely to be aware. Do not let the arrogance of America and its partisans scare you and do not let the malice of Britain and its partisans beguile you. They are the enemy, so beware of them! Support the deen of Allah, He will support you and make strong your foothold.
((إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَذِكْرَى لِمَنْ كَانَ لَهُ قَلْبٌ أَوْ أَلْقَى السَّمْعَ وَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ))
“Indeed, there is a lesson in all this for him who has a heart and gives ear (to the truth) attentively.” [Qaf: 37]
