Ansarullah Ain’t Come This Far To Surrender Its Weapons And Destiny To Al-Saud

by Jonathan Azaziah

With the UN-sponsored ceasefire in ‪#‎Yemen‬ continuing to be violated daily by genocidal Al-Saud and the worthless “peace” talks in Kuwait exposed as a total farce aimed at dislodging Ansarullah, it’s time for a small but vital history lesson.

Since the 1990s when Ansarullah was just a political party known as the Believing Youth, focused on teaching what Sayyed Hussein al-Houthi (R.A.) called ‘Qur’anic Culture’ in response to Al-Saud’s devious attempts to Wahhabiize their way of life, the Zaydis and allied Shafi’i Sunnis of North Yemen have faced nothing less than a US-Zionist-Saudi-backed war of extermination. In the beginning, this oppression was subtle, in which tactics like economic strangulation through deliberate underdevelopment and assassinations of members of the Houthi family were employed to keep people living in fear.

US-Saudi Rejection Be Damned: Houthis Take Control of Yemen Without Seizing Power

by Joy Slim, Al-Akhbar English

The Houthis’ first step toward governing Yemen seems like a necessary option imposed on Ansarullah due to the failure of Yemeni parties, following days of intensive talks, to reach a solution to the political crisis and fill the power vacuum created by the resignation of the president and his government under external pressure.

After months of gaining ground throughout Yemen’s provinces, Ansarullah (the Houthis) has translated its progress into clear political gains. The Houthis have now taken control of the government, yet without assuming power themselves, and will oversee a two-year transitional phase through a “constitutional declaration.” The declaration was made in a large ceremony at the Yemeni presidential palace.
