Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari just may be Iraq’s brightest light. The righteousness, faith, sincerity, passion, love for the Moustazafeen (the oppressed people), hatred for the Moustakbireen (the oppressors), hope and ancient eloquence of Bilad al-Rafidayn shine through in all the oratories he delivers. The Iraqi Resistance leader is truly a firebrand in every sense of the word. His latest speech, which focuses on Yemen, is at once a blistering verbal annihilation of Dönmeh Al-Saud and a breathtaking show of support for the Yemeni Mouqawamah led by Ansarullah. Towards the end, when the Iraqi Sayyed declares that if Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei and Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah give the order for the forces of Resistance to go to Yemen, then Iraq’s moujahideen will follow with their hearts, prayers, thoughts, tongues and weapons, I simply got the chills right down to the bone. If only one billionth, that’s it, just ONE BILLIONTH of the world’s Muslims spoke with the same ferocity and truthfulness that Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari speaks with vis-a-vis Yemen, the US-UK-‘Israeli’-backed Saudi regime wouldn’t have even dared to begin an aggression against the Yemeni people. But you know what? That’s okay. Because the Iraqi Sayyed’s thunderous voice by itself shakes the Earth like one of Ansarullah’s homemade Qaher-1 ballistic missiles shakes the cowardly Saudi army. And his thunderous voice by itself makes up for all those sorry excuses for humans who abandoned Yemen at its most critical hour. May ALLAH (SWT) make Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari’s fire burn brighter than ever and make his words like winged swords that fly throughout the Ummah and continue cutting Al-Saud down to size.
“Today, Yemen carries the name of the truth and the oppressed. Defending it is obligatory and our voices must be loud so they can be heard when we defend the Yemeni people. Especially when it comes to Ansarullah, because it is these moujahideen who are our people, and who carry the flag of truth in this dear country. If the family of Al-Saud were men, they would have confronted us on land, because a man is one who fights his adversary face to face. But the family of Al-Saud and some other Arabs, just as the former Qatari Prime Minister described himself, are sheep. Sheep don’t confront men! Sheep approach from the skies with warplanes! And please, allow me to apologize to the sheep! Because sheep are better than the family of Al-Saud and some of these Arabs and Bedouins!
“Again I say, if the Saudi ‘royals’ are men, then let them engage us on land! I believe that if they were to come with every American, Zionist and Saudi weapon, and all the weapons that the Gulf countries paid billions in bloody petrodollars for, and fought the people of Yemen on land, and Ansarullah only defended themselves with daggers instead of their own weaponry, the Saudi-led invaders would still be defeated! This is because Ansarullah and the people of Yemen are bearers of a resistant ideology, of faith, of manhood, of pride, of firmness and of Godwariness. All of us witnessed how, during the Yemeni protests up until this day, the verses of the Holy Qur’an were flashing during the speeches of Ansarullah’s orators: ‘… If you help ALLAH, He will help you…’ and ‘… ALLAH will surely help those who help Him…’ When we hear the words of Sayyed Abdul Malik Badreddine al-Houthi, this great leader, he says: “Our legislation is here, in this Book. This is our legislation, in the book of ALLAH. And ALLAH states, ‘Those who are fought against are permitted to fight back because they have been wronged, and ALLAH is indeed able to help them.’
“We find that the verses of the Qur’an and the narrations regarding victory, steadfastness and faith are constantly mentioned. Indeed, the belief in ALLAH by the leader and his people, even if they possess nothing but a dagger, is enough to emerge victorious. So as the sheep and the pseudo-men from the family of Al-Saud strike viciously with bombs and missiles in a storm that I call a storm of blood and oppression, not a ‘Decisive Storm’ as they named their Zionist operation, we say to Ansarullah and the people of Yemen: All of us, with our prayers, hearts, thoughts and tongues, stand with you. And if one day, His Eminence, Supreme Leader Imam Khamenei, or his Eminence, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, say that our presence is necessary in Yemen, then we will all be in Yemen! Not only with our prayers, hearts, thoughts and tongues, but also with our weapons insha’ALLAH when Wilayat al-Faqih orders it!”
