WITH the Houthi’s attempt to bombard the Holy City of Makkah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with ballistic missiles, the era of searching for description of war with these people ends because their objective manifested itself without any possibility of giving a political analyst an opening to base his position on the matter.
Therefore, it is unacceptable for any Muslim, regardless of his creed and the type of Islam he practices, to have justification or excuse for the Houthi group and those backing them to negotiate on the future of Yemen. Whoever bombards the holiest place for 1.5 billion Muslims cannot be entrusted when it comes to political participation in managing the lives of 26 million Yemenis.
If Abraha Al-Ashram Al-Habashi in the sixth century of the Common Era attempted to destroy the Kaaba with his elephants, when Almighty Allah sent him flocks of birds striking Abraha and his soldiers with tiny balls of hard clay; it is the same Lord — protector of His ancient house — who avenged the old ‘Carmathians’ (Qarmatians) for murdering about 30,000 pilgrims and innocent dwellers of Makkah, as well as stealing the Black Stone and hiding it for about 22 years.
Throughout history, Makkah has had its protectors, and the two holy lands have had their people who protected them and defended them from any aggression.
Today, there are people chosen by Allah to combat the Persian expansionism scheme carried out onboard missiles launched by the new Qarmatians targeting the ancient house of Allah. They also prevented the disaster caused by the old Qarmatians or to even stand on the face of anyone who thinks about the recurring attempt of Abraha or even violating the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries.
This is why the ‘Decisive Storm’ operation launched by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman Abdul Aziz was a preemptive strike to prevent putting holy places in Makkah and Madinah at the mercy of the new people of the elephant.
This preemptive defensive campaign, which the Arab coalition forces are participating in, has shielded and fortified the southern front of the Arabian peninsula by combating the grandsons of modern Abraha Qarmatians.
The Arab coalition is combating the outlaws of every religion and creed, as well as the foundation that will lead to the fall of every ‘DAESH’ member, whether Sunnis or Shiites, who have been attempting throughout the past three decades to commit the worst atrocities in holy places through attacks on the Ancient House, explosions, attempts to politicize Hajj in a bid to make this great Islamic occasion the center for agitating sedition, sectarian and fanaticism.
For the past three decades and some years, the new breed of Qarmatians have not stopped their attempts to infiltrate the Arabian Peninsula or the Arab world. They have been launching savage extremism and fanaticism through the terrorist groups which adopted the name of Allah as their slogan, whereas in reality, they are working to destroy the intact religion of Islam.
They have been roaming the entire region, starting with Lebanon where the so-called ‘Hezbollah’, the top agitator of every creedal sedition, and through Iraq where terrorist groups emerged to commit every type of atrocity against Iraqis, and then reaching ‘Ansaarullah’ group in Yemen which has been proven to be the first enemy of Allah in the region.
Indeed, if it were not for the ‘Decisive Storm’ we would have seen the Popular Mobilization Forces, Houthis and Revolutionary Guards spreading corruption and destruction in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and every GCC country.
Perhaps, the grandchildren of Abraha would have repeated the course of action taken by the first Qarmatians, not only in murdering pilgrims and stealing the Black Stone; but also in destroying the Holy Ka’aba.
Therefore, regardless of the human and financial cost of this storm, it is considered very less in terms of the damages that would have happened if the Houthis and their masters — Iran — achieved their objective.
