Arab Parliament Condemns Iranian Interference in Yemen
By Staff Writer
The Arab Parliament has condemned Iran’s interference in Yemen, where it supports the Houthi militia, and its threats to surrounding countries, particularly evident through its continued firing of ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabia.
The politicians asserted this in a statement released at the end of the first meeting of the third session in the second parliamentary term that focused on developments in Yemen. They also agreed on the need to find a peaceful, political solution to the Yemeni crisis based on the Gulf initiative, the national dialogue, and UN Security Council resolutions relevant to Yemen, particularly 2216.
The parliament that spoke about how the Houthis seemed unwilling to engage in any serious efforts to settle the Yemeni crisis peacefully, citing that the Houthis did something to disrupt the peace on a daily basis, including planting sea mines, sending booby-trapped boats into the Red Sea, and attacking oil tankers. The statement said that these malign actions are terrorist acts, which threaten international peace and security, as well as global trade movement. The politicians agreed that they hold the Houthis responsible for the continued suffering of the Yemeni people.
The parliament then stressed their support for the legitimate Yemeni government, as well as the US-backed, Saudi-led Arab Coalition to restore the internationally recognised Yemeni government. They called on the Arab institutions share the responsibility of bringing peace and security in Yemen.
The Yemeni conflict has been raging since 2014, when the Houthis forced the legitimate government to flee from the capital Sanaa.
The Iranian Regime is backing the Houthi rebels because it aids destabilisation and chaos in the Middle East, something that the Iranian Regime is desperate for. This chaos allows the Iranian mullahs to swoop in and take control of a country, usually by proxy, as is the case in Yemen or Lebanon, or via propping up the existing government, i.e. Syria.
This is all part of the Iranian Regime’s plan to create a Shiite Crescent across the Middle East, which would allow them to move mercenaries and money more easily, thus making it easier to create a new Persian empire.
The Regime does this not because they are strong, but because they are weak. Despised by the Iranian public, facing an uprising led by the popular resistance forces, and the subject of international sanctions, the mullahs know that their stranglehold on power is slipping and that soon they will be overthrown. That’s why the Regime wants to export chaos to other countries.
