Netanyahu: “Saudi Arabia must be defended”

In a blatant example of Saudi-Israeli collaboration, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has come to the defence of the Saudi regime, stating that the “stability of Saudi Arabia” must be protected from all criticism and voicing the importance of Israel’s cooperation with various regimes in the Gulf.

SANA’A – Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of the Israeli regime, has voiced his opinion that “Saudi Arabia must remain stable”, stressing the Zionist entity’s close relations with Riyadh and its intention to protect the Saudi monarchy from criticism from the international community.

Netanyahu made this statement during a press conference in Varna, Bulgaria on Friday.
“What happened in the Istanbul consulate was horrendous and it should be duly dealt with. Yet at the same time I say it, it is very important for the stability of the world, for the region and for the world, that Saudi Arabia remain stable.” The Zionist leader however failed to clarify what the role of Saudi Arabia in the “stability of the world” was.

“I think that a way must be found to achieve both goals because the larger problem is Iran and we have to make sure that Iran does not continue the malign activities that it has been doing over the last few weeks in Europe,” Netanyahu continued, adding that “blocking Iran is uttermost on our agenda for security, not merely for Israel but I believe for Europe and the world as well.”

Aside from claiming that Iran was involved in terrorist activities in Europe, Netanyahu pointed out that the Israeli regime had “drastically improved” its relations with its “Arab neighbours”. While no countries were named immediately, this was a likely reference to Saudi Arabia, which recently received a delegation of high-ranking Zionist representatives and lobbyists from the United States.

Following Netanyahu’s statement, Foreign Minister of Bahrain Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa praised the Israeli leader’s words as “a clear position on the importance of regional stability and the role of Saudi Arabia”. Bahrain, an absolute monarchy that has been cracking down on its Shia majority population for years, is also actively involved in the Saudi-led war against Yemen.

In further destabilisation of region, UK announced new military base in Oman

In a decision that could prove to further destabilise the region, the United Kingdom has announced the opening of a permanent military base in Oman.

– SANA’A – In what could further undermine the stability of the region, the United Kingdom has announded plans to open a British military base in the Sultanate of Oman by March 2019. The move comes as part of the British outreach to “strengthen ties with its allies” in the region.

UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced the opening of the base in the wake of large-scale military exercises of British forces in Oman.

“Our relations with Oman are based on centuries of cooperation and we are working to strengthen them to continue in the future by opening our new common base,” Williamson said in an official statement.
“This is more important now than ever, as the malicious activities of hostile states and violent extremist organizations seek to undermine stability and undermine the principles based system on which we all depend.”

The statement of the British secretary are likely to be met with suspicion in Yemen. The United Kingdom, together with the United States, is one of the major supporters and suppliers of the Saudi-led war of aggression against Yemen. Evidence has surfaced that the UK not only sell state-of-the-art weaponry to the Riyadh regime, but is even involved in the war rooms and intelligence services of the Saudi-led invasion, being directly involved in the mass murder of Yemeni people. The British also maintain close relations with Bahrain, a small petroleum monarchy notorious for its persecution of its own Shia majority population. Earlier this year, the UK opened a permanent military base in Bahrain as well.

The Sultanate of Oman has long played the role of neutral observer and mediator in the Yemeni conflict, as well as in other regional conflicts in the Gulf and the Arab world. However, some fears have arisen that this neutrality might be coming to an end, especially after the Sultan of Oman personally received Israeli regime prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his palace.

Saudi-born revolutionary leader Dakheel al-Qahtani welcomed into Yemen

Dakheer bin Nasser al-Qahtani, dissident former Saudi officer and leader of the Arab Peninsula Liberation Movement, has been welcomed to Yemen on an official visit, marking Yemen’s support to the liberation of the people of Saudi Arabia from the yoke of the tyrannical monarchy.

SANA’A – Brigadier Yahya Sare’e, spokesman for the Armed Forces and Popular Committees of Yemen, has officially welcomed the arrival of Dakheel bin Nasser al-Qahtani, the leader of the political opposition against the Saudi regime, to Yemen.

Dakheel al-Qahtani is a former officer in the Royal Saudi Armed Forces who grew dissatisfied with the tyrannical course the kingdom was going. After defecting from service to the Saudi monarchy, al-Qahtani founded the Arab Peninsula Liberation Movement in 2014.
Soon after, he was subsequently arrested and jailed by Saudi forces for over five years, following a video statement broadcast in which he noted that the foreign policies of the al-Saud system are against the interest of the Arab and Islamic nation.

Al-Qahtani furthermore stated that the Saudi regime has been exercising tyrannical rule and has been using intimidation against Muslims all over the world ever since the foundation of the kingdom in 1932. The revolutionary officer also has condemned the Saudi regime for its role in the 2003 illegal invasion and destruction of Iraq and its financing of takfiri Wahhabi terrorist groups in Syria, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen; as well as playing a role in the 2013 military coup against Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi and the destabilization of the Gaza Strip with Wahhabi terrorists.

Brigadier Sare’e welcomed al-Qahtani into Yemen, stating that Yemen is open to all those who are subjected to injustice in Saudi Arabia, and reiterating that Yemen will support their activities to achieve justice in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi head of “World Muslim League” calls for cooperation with Israel

Abdul Karim Issa, head of the Saudi-controlled “World Muslim League”, has officially called for cooperation with the Zionist entity of Israel, after meeting with high-ranking Zionist representatives in New York.

SANA’A – In a shocking statement, Saudi cleric and head of the “World Muslim Leage” (WML), Abdul Karim Issa has openly called for cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the Zionist entity of Israel. This highly controversial statement, which goed directly against the policies and beliefs that nearly the entire Islamic world has held ever since 1948, was made in the wake of a meeting between the WML and high-ranking Zionist officials in New York.

Issa, who is a close associate of Saudi crown prince Muhammad bin Salman (MBS), said the following during an interview with Fox News:

“We should send a peace convoy that is representative of all three Abrahamic religions. They should be Muslim, Christian and Jewish and they should visit all holy sites (…) They should meet everyone and find common ground, and they should provide fertile ground to find solutions for peace.”

While the statement of the Wahhabi cleric flies in the face of much of the Islamic world, it is not entirely surprising, given the long history of increased unofficial cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the Israeli regime. Israel has even offered military assistance to the Saudi kingdom in its invasion of Yemen.

Saudi Arabia, while controlling the territory of the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina, has hostile relations with most of the anti-Zionist movements in the Islamic world, including Hezbollah, Hamas and the Islamic Republic of Iran. On the contrary, relations between Riyadh and nations such as the US have only improved under the rule of MBS.

The World Muslim League, founded by the Saudi regime in 1962, has for a long time been a vehicle of Riyadh in its attempts to spread Wahhabism across the Islamic world. The organisation was in New York in order to attend an annual conference of the so-called “Cultural Rapprochement between the US and the Muslim World”. During this meeting, the WML also hosted Ronald Lauder, head of the World Jewish Congress (WJC). The WJC is one of the world’s foremost Zionist organisations, and organises various Zionist and pro-“Israeli” organisations, leading many critics to believe that Abdul Karim Issa’s statement was heavily influenced by Zionist interests.
