The Saudi regime has added another 31 Yemeni ‘scalps’ of mostly women and children to its towering pile of millions of Muslim lives it has taken as trophies ever since it first burst on the regional scene with its attack on Hijaz the Land of Divine Revelation in 1801 that unleashed streams of blood in the sacred cities of Mecca and Medina, followed a year later with the massacre of over 5,000 people in the holy city of Karbala in Iraq.
The intention here is not to list the unending crimes against humanity of the Saudi clan of Jewish origin, which was wiped out by Egypt’s Mohammad Ali Pasha by 1814 before resurrected by Britain during World War 1 for a new life of terrorism that began with the violent seizure of the vast Shi’a-Muslim eastern region of the Arabian Peninsula, followed by the blood-curdling occupation and desecration of Hijaz and the holy cities in 1925, for which London rewarded the murderous desert brigand of Najd, Abdul-Aziz Aal-e Saud, with a spurious fiefdom in 1932 – sixteen years prior to the British creation of another artificial entity called Israel in Palestine for the East European non-Israelite Zionists.
Time and place do not allow us to dwell in detail on the Saudi occupation of the northern Yemen provinces of Najran, Jizan, and Asir in 1934, or the creation and funding of various murderous takfiri terrorist outfits operating these days in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Egypt, Nigeria, etc.
The unabated genocide of the Shi’a Arab Muslims of the oil-rich parts of Arabia also does not figure here, and neither the Saudi financing of Saddam’s 8-year long war against the Islamic Republic in the 1980s on the instructions of the U.S., nor the overthrowing of the governments of Egypt and Sudan through military coups, as well as the dalliance with Israel to backstab the Palestinians.
What has shocked the civilized world is last Friday’s war crime of Riyadh in al-Jawf Province of Yemen, where the fatality toll of the Yemeni people is well over a hundred thousand, mostly killed through aerial bombing of the infrastructure of the Arab World’s poorest country, including mosques, markets, schools, and libraries.
The Saudi war criminals, however, are the least perturbed at their state terrorism, and sadistically exult at the bloodbath, while thanking the U.N. for turning a blind eye and instead calling the defenders of Yemen as ‘rebels’.
At the same time, despite the continuous insults hurled at them by super terrorist Donald Trump of the U.S. that they are not more than milk cows and will collapse within two weeks if American support is withdrawn, the evil mind behind the war in Yemen, MBS (Mohamed bin Salman), unabashedly bows in obeisance to his masters in Washington, London, and Paris for supplying them state-of-the-art killing technology.
It is clear that the expensive armaments have not given the cowardly Saudis any edge over the lightly armed Yemenis whose resistance and ability to strike deep inside enemy territory with their rapidly improving missile and drone power has unnerved the regime in Riyadh.
A recent example of the Yemeni army’s technological advances was the downing with anti-aircraft fire of a British supplied Tornado jet fighter of the Saudis.
Surprised at this development and unable to meet their adversaries on the battlefield, the Saudis, with the fully support of the Americans and the British, bombed civilians in Jawf.
Unfortunately, these crimes against humanity are not expected to end, until, Insha Allah (God Willing) the end of the spurious entity called Saudi Arabia.
