Eingebetteter Medieninhalt

Eigentlich hatte ich mir vorgenommen und das auch so angekündigt, meine „Jemenkrieg-Mosaike“ so lange auszusetzen, bis die Huthis im Jemen den am 14. August von ihnen verschleppten Blogger Hisham-Al-Omeisy wieder freigelassen haben. Das ist bis heute nicht geschehen.

Dennoch möchte ich meine „Jemenkrieg-Mosaike“ nun wieder aufnehmen. Ich war in dieser Sache fest davon überzeugt, dass die Huthis auf das relativ große Medienecho und die vielen eindeutigen Reaktionen in den sozialen Medien (aus dem Jemen wie international) hin einsehen müssten, dass sie sich mit dieser Verhaftung nur selbst geschadet haben. Ehrlich gesagt, ich habe schlichtweg die Dummheit und die politische Unfähigkeit der Huthis krass unterschätzt.

Die Ereignisse im und um den Jemen gehen freilich weiter. Unter anderem geht es wieder einmal um eine internationale unabhängige Untersuchung der Kriegsverbrechen im Jemen – und die Saudis, hier politisch unter Druck geraten, haben nun eine ganz neue (und reichlich groteske) Propagandavariante entdeckt. Wegen der Dauer-Dummheit anderer auf Dauer hier nicht mehr zu berichten, wäre aber sicher nicht im Sinn der Sache – und wohl auch nicht im Sinne derer, die nun im Jemen selbst zum Schweigen verurteilt worden sind. Ich werde jetzt also wieder weitermachen.

Allerdings: Der Fall von Hisham Al-Omeisy wird dabei besondere Aufmerksamkeit bekommen. Und er ist ja leider kein Einzelfall. Meine besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird darüber hinaus auch den Berichten in anderen Fällen von willkürlichen Verhaftungen durch die Huthis gelten.

Und ich werde es mir auch nicht verkneifen, in der nächsten Zeit einen Artikel mit dem Thema: „Die politische Dummheit der Huthis“ (oder ähnlich) zu veröffentlichen.

Actually, I had planned and announced to stop my “Yemen war mosaic” until the Houthis in Yemen finally would have released the blogger Hisham-Al-Omeisy, whom they had kidnapped and detained on August 14th. This did not happen up to now.

Nevertheless, I would like to resume my “Yemen war mosaics” now. In the matter of Omeisy, I had been firmly convinced that the Houthis would be aware of the relatively large media echo and the many clear reactions in the social media (from Yemen as well as internationally), and that they would understand that with this arrest they just had harmed themselves. To be honest, I simply had underestimated the Houthis’ stupidity and their inability in politics.

But of course the events in and around Yemen are going on. Among other things, there are new and clear demands for an international independent investigation of the war crimes in Yemen – and the Saudis, under political pressure, therefore have now discovered a new (and absolutely grotesque) propaganda variant. Stopping to report from Yemen on the long term because of one party’s long-term stupidity, certainly would not be adequate to what is happening in Yemen – and probably also would not be in accordance with the wishes of those who now have been condemned to silence in Yemen itself. Therefore, I will continue now.

However, I furthermore will pay special attention to the case of Hisham Al-Omeisy. And unfortunately his case is not a single one. Thus, my special attention will also be given to the reports in other cases of arbitrary arrests by the Huthis.

And soon I also will publish an article on the subject of “The political stupidity of the Houthis” (or similar).

Angels of Yemen: The work of MONA Relief Org

Fatik Al-Rodaini (@fatikr) is the founder of MONA Relief Yemen (@monareliefye), a non-profit organization that has been serving the needs of Yemeni people on the ground by providing food and medical aid. The non-profit was named after a charitable donor named Mona who got the organization off the ground.

This interview, I will talk to Fatik about how MONA Relief provides much needed support to people in Yemen; as well as ways those of us outside of Yemen can help to stop this crisis.

The Way Forward in Yemen

In the coastal city of Hodeidah, the most catastrophic elements of Yemen’s civil war present themselves: death, deterioration, and disaster.

The extensive, under-the-radar support the United States provides to the Saudi-led coalition indicates that U.S. interests in Yemen are deeper than combatting extremism.

To a large extent, Iran and Saudi Arabia are using Yemen as an avenue to assert their respective dominance in the Middle East, but it is an oversimplification to characterize the Yemeni conflict as merely a proxy war.

How Media Obscure US/Saudi Responsibility for Killing Yemeni Civilians

Major Western media outlets have, however, obscured the responsibility Saudi Arabia, and its US and European supporters, bear for launching these airstrikes.

There are no other parties presently bombing Yemen, so media cannot feign ignorance as to who is responsible for the attacks. But reports on the bloody US/Saudi coalition airstrikes were nonetheless rife with ambiguous and downright misleading language – by Ben Norton

Are Yemeni rebels imploding?

Saudi Arabia is hoping the Yemeni rebel alliance is fracturing, which could open the door for the Saudi alliance to escape the quagmire Riyadh is stuck in. It's a long shot, and not a viable strategy for Washington.

During the last 2½ years of the new civil war, Saleh and the Houthis have been wary partners. Saleh has quietly tried to keep his options open, using his son Ahmed, who travels often to Abu Dhabi.

For months, the simmering divisions within the rebellion were kept under the surface but sufficiently restive to give the Saudis and their allies — including some in US President Donald Trump's team — hope that the rebels will fight each other.

So a war within the rebel camp has a potential for dividing the kingdom's enemies.

Thoughtful Saudis are deeply skeptical about Saleh, doubting that he will really be prepared to support the restoration of Hadi's government.

The urgent necessity is an unconditional cease-fire supervised by the UN. The blockade should be lifted – by Bruce Riedel

Die Huthis, diese „Operettenpartner“

Saudi-Arabien könnte den jemenitischen Präsidenten fallen lassen. Der abgesetzte frühere Präsident wittert Chancen für ein Comeback - auf Kosten der Huthis.

Sowohl die Huthis wie auch der Ex-Präsident wissen, dass sie den Krieg gegen die Saudis verlieren werden, wenn sie sich gegenseitig bekriegen.

Aus diesem Grund wird der Ex-Präsident mit den Huthis wohl erst dann endgültig brechen, wenn er von Riad die verbindliche Zusage erhält, dass nach dem Krieg er, und nicht al-Hadi, der neue Machthaber sein wird - von Arnold Hottinger

When going to school can be deadly

In Yemen's war-torn classrooms, books and pencils are being replaced by mortars and automatic weapons.

Almost two dozen schools throughout the impoverished country have now been occupied by armed groups, and another 1500 have been either partially or totally destroyed by the relentless fighting.

For children caught in the middle of this conflict, even going to school can prove deadly, with 222 attacks on schools over the last two years ( with photos)

The war on Yemen is about capitalism, not sectarianism

In the first essay in our three-part #StopDSEI series, Tom Anderson reviews the roots of the crisis in Yemen, where the civilian population has been enduring a brutal bombing campaign by a Saudi-led coalition, supported by the UK, since 2015.

One way to show solidarity with the people of Yemen is to join the campaign against the DSEI arms fair, the world’s largest arms fair; which is set to take place in East London’s Docklands in September 2017.

Yemen Food Security Outlook Update, August 2017

Large populations in Yemen continue to face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or Emergency (IPC Phase 4) acute food insecurity, the latter of which is associated with increased acute malnutrition and an increased risk of excess mortality. In a worst-case scenario, significant declines in commercial imports below requirement levels and conflict that cuts populations off from trade and humanitarian assistance for an extended period could drive food security outcomes in line with Famine (IPC Phase 5).

Feminism at the Frontline: Addressing Women’s Multidimensional Insecurity in Yemen and Libya

The peaceful uprisings that sparkled in 2011 in Libya and Yemen transformed into violent armed conflicts, characterized by internal insecurity and severe proliferation of arms. This transformation significantly limited the space for women and restricted their involvement in the peace processes, despite them constituting forces for revolutionary change at the beginning of the uprisings.

WILPF and partners in Yemen and Libya worked together to identify, analyse, and address the multidimensional insecurities women are forced to confront.

Congress Should Do Its Job, and Get Us Out of Yemen’s Civil War

American support for the Saudi-led coalition is getting us nowhere good.

The solution here is a political division and peace, where Yemen’s Sunnis and Hadi keep the land adjacent to the Gulf of Aden, including the all-important Mandeb Strait, while the Houthis keep the northwest of the country bordering the Red Sea. The first step in this direction is ending our assistance to the Saudis’ indiscriminate bombing campaign.
