Death & Destruction In
(M. Javed Naseem)
وَٱلَّذينَ كَفَرُواْ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءُ بَعْضٍ
إِلاَّ تَفْعَلُوهُ تَكُنْ فِتْنَةٌ فِى ٱلأَرْضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ
“The unbelievers are protectors, one of
another. Unless you do this, (protect each
other), there would be tumult and oppression
on earth, and great mischief.”
Shaitan (the Devil) did not like it a bit. Therefore, he waited patiently for his turn. Today, the Devil’s friends are raising hell in
There’s death and destruction all over, just like in Iraq,
Afghanistan and Syria. The
pretext (excuse) was created in Paris where the
drama of ‘Charlie Hebdo’ was staged to eventually invade Yemen. From Paris to Yemen,
it didn’t take long!
12 million Yemenis with no food.
25 million with no fuel to even cook food they have.
13 million with no water.
What’s 500,000 dead Iraqi children or
civilians in the grand scheme?
They are fooling you!
They are playing with you!
They have been betraying you!
They are robbing you!
They are hurting and killing you!
They are destroying your culture and country!
They are controlling your economic lifeline!
They are dictating you and using you!
O Ummah! Don’t you understand? Are you dumb and blind? When are you going to learn? Don’t you want to wake up for the sake of your children? Or your children are already in the West, supposedly safe and sound?
That’s how you treat Islam and the Quran – Allah’s commands? The wrath of Allah is upon you. Repent and beg for His mercy!
You brought it to yourself. Now, you can’t blame others for your misery. You are digging your own grave!
وَمَآ أَصَابَكُمْ مِّن مُّصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا
كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ وَيَعْفُواْ عَن كَثِيرٍ
“Whatever misfortune happens to you,
is because of the things your hands
have wrought, and for many (of
them) HE grants forgiveness.”
Prophet Solomon (Sulaiman) made
war or bloodshed during the time
of Bilqees – the Queen of Sheeba.
Today, the forces of evil have
finally taken their revenge.
Excerpts from Amy Goodman’s report:
More than a thousand people have died since the Saudi-led bombing campaign began in late March. More than half the victims are civilian, including 115 children. The precise toll from the air strikes is not known, because many areas are hard to reach. But the U.N. and several major human rights groups have raised the possibility of war crimes in the scores of documented bombings so far.

providing intelligence to Saudi
Arabia, including "direct targeting support"
for the coalition’s strikes.

Now Human Rights Watch has accused the Saudi-led coalition of dropping banned cluster bombs manufactured and supplied by the
Cluster bombs contain dozens or even hundreds of smaller munitions designed to
fan out over a wide area, often the size of a football field. They are banned
under a 2008 treaty for the high civilian toll they can cause. According to

villages in northern Yemen,

Are Obama’s Record Arms Sales to
Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Egypt
and Iraq Fueling Unrest in Middle East?
(Excerpts from a report published on April 7, 2015,
The majority of weapons exports under Obama have gone to the Middle East and
Persian Gulf. Saudi Arabia
tops the list at $46 billion in new agreements.
We are joined by William Hartung, who says that even after adjusting for inflation, "the volume of major deals concluded by the Obama administration in its first five years exceeds the amount approved by the Bush administration in its full eight years in office by nearly $30 billion. That also means that the Obama administration has approved more arms sales than any
administration since World War II."
Hartung is the director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, and author of "Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex."

Starve the Children (Like in
By Nick Hankoff
April 29, 2015—On the most recent episode of former congressman Ron Paul’s Liberty Report, he and Institute for Peace and Prosperity executive director Daniel McAdams discussed the latest news out of
Ron Paul opened with an historical context: “I wanna look into a little bit about why the people, especially the children, are starving in
Yemen and also are without water
and medication. It sounds a little like what was happening in Iraq leading up to the Iraq War,”
What does this have to do with US policy towards
After Yemen’s former
president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi (who rose to power in a coup and was “elected”
as the only candidate on the ballot) resigned as Yemeni rebels known as Houthis
stormed his palace, Saudi Arabia
began to bomb Yemen
to stop further Houthi advances. Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia, reassumed his role as
Yemeni president, and ordered the Saudis to bomb the country he had just
At this time, the
US was deep into talks with Iran regarding a guiding outline to an eventual
deal on Iran’s
civilian nuclear program. Because the Saudis and their Sunni allies are
adversaries of the Shiite Iran, there was pressure for the US to prove its relationship with the

sends arms and uses its naval forces to block shipments of humanitarian aid.
In the video, Ron Paul asks, “I don’t know what would satisfy them. How does this end?”
Daniel McAdams cites the figures of 12 million Yemenis with no food, 25 million with no fuel to even cook food they have, and 13 million with no water. What’s 500,000 dead civilians in the grand scheme? McAdams also refers to the growth of al Qaeda as the Houthis and civilians are continually weakened and killed.
How does this end? What is the
US interest in starving Yemen?

The butchers wear the ‘Mask of Democracy’ now!
Here, Ron Paul is alluding to President Clinton’s campaign of sanctions that killed 500,000 Iraqi children.
Clinton’s Secretary of
State justified the astounding number:
Madeleine Albright: “The death of 500,000 Iraqi children was worth it for
non existent WMD's.”
UK and Israel are hoping for the same
effect on Iranian children with sanctions. Iran does not want or need nuclear
weapons. History is repeating itself!

Why Are We In
Former Obama official ditches talking points
Updated: April 22, 2015, by Nick Hankoff
April 21, 2015—
US intervention in Yemen
deepened this week as the USS Theodore Roosevelt, a nuclear-fueled aircraft
carrier, led eight other US
naval ships to the coast of Yemen.
But what exactly are the national interests being served?
rebels known as Houthis have overthrown the US and Saudi Arabian-backed
government, even succeeding in occupying the capital city, Sana’a. Led by Saudi
Arabia, nine other Sunni Islamic countries are pushing back against the
Yemeni rebels as well as what they perceive to be Iran’s growing influence. Iran is a Shiite country and is thus opposed by
the Sunni countries who have been against US talks with Iran over their civilian nuclear
program. As a nuclear deal nears, the US is under pressure to reassure
these Sunni countries that it has their backs.
Ilan Goldenberg, former State Department and Pentagon official under President Obama told Politico:
“Our involvement in
is a direct function of the talks, and it’s a decision by the administration to
try to reassure our Arab partners.”
“I’m not sure what we’re doing in
Yemen is good Yemen policy.
In fact I would probably venture that it’s bad Yemen policy. But I would say that
it’s good U.S.-Saudi relationship policy.”
How does this candid assessment measure up against the Obama Administration and mainstream media talking points?
In soundbite-driven TV news, the situation in
Yemen has been
summarily described as “confusing” or “complicated,” stressing “ Tehran’s support of the Shiite
rebels fighting the Saudi-led coalition.” Well, that is confusing because Tehran’s alleged support hasn’t been quantified or
qualified with any evidence from the US. The “Shiite rebels”
characterization fogs up the fact that they are Yemenis resisting foreign
bombers, not simply a “coalition” led by a US ally.
Watch this short video about death and destruction in
The alleged support of the Houthis is nothing compared to what the
has done for the Saudi airstrike mission in Yemen. From intelligence to air
refueling, the US
has made the Saudi bombing campaign all the more damaging, though no more
effective. Some 60 Houthis and 45 civilians were killed in just one series of
Saudi strikes. Many more civilians have died and the Houthis have not let up
their resistance. Is the US
supporting the Saudis’ own Vietnam
What the naval blockade of
Yemen is accomplishing, now with direct
involvement of the US,
is keeping humanitarian aid off shore. Yemen is one of the poorest
countries in the world, depending on imports for over 90 percent of its food.
Those deliveries will be stalled or not made at all. Is this good for
“stability” as the US
claims its involvement is?
Saudi Arabia, the Houthis are also battling al
Qaeda and the Islamic State who benefit from the chaos created in Yemen. If the
Houthis are fighting enemies of the US,
what good is the US doing by
allying with Saudi Arabia,
a country that has been reluctant to do the same?
The recent increase of media hype about Iranian weapon shipments to
runs parallel with their claims about Iran developing a nuclear bomb.
Neither of these notions are backed up with evidence, but the international
politics driving those talking points are quite evident.
Though the Obama Administration is committed to working out a nuclear deal with
must be appeased. Why? And for how long?
These are the questions that can’t be avoided unless the
adopts a more non-interventionist foreign policy.
Question: Do you think
US intervention in Yemen
will lead to a greater regional war?
is the top country benefiting most from the ‘war industry’! US intervention has already led to many wars in
a number of countries, especially the Middle East, bringing in billions of dollars worth of profits, plus political control.
