IT appears the ‘symphony’ of divine victory, which Iran started playing four decades ago using the bodies of Lebanese and Iraqis and later the Syrians and Yemenis, has come to an end. Indeed, that symphony was discordant as it violated every law, canon and values.
It depended on terrorism as its means – thereby, contradicting the prevailing cultures in societies which adopted slogans of resistance and struggle. Nonetheless, all of that collapsed in Yemen where Iran’s theocratic regime believed it can infiltrate into the Arabian Peninsula and control holy sites as a trophy for its historic scheme to change the regional belief to conform with its political gown disguised as a religious cloak.
The war in Yemen comes to an end today after the delegation of Houthi puppets to Stockholm realized they have no option but to surrender. This happened after the Houthis realized their miscalculation; and that Tehran is submerged in livelihood crisis and it is unable to resist the wrath of the world, especially the Muslim world which will never allow Makkah and Madinah to be under the mercy of neo-Qarmatians regardless of the circumstances.
The Iranians and Houthis were delusional in thinking that prolonging the war meant victory. They ignored the fact that it could also mean defeat, considering they controlled 90 percent of Yemen at the beginning. They exercised systemic oppression on Yemenis who rejected the rule of militias. This time, the Yemeni military with the support of the Arab coalition worked under difficult and sensitive circumstances. It was akin to a surgery to remove a malignant tumor as they focused on not losing the patient. From the beginning, Gulf countries were convinced that the objective of the Houthis’ occupation of Sanaa, Aden and other Yemeni areas in 2015 was not to take over Yemen.
Instead, it was a prelude to invading Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman. Even Muscat, which distanced itself from war, will not allow Iran to control the region. Even Qatar, which withdrew from the coalition, will not allow the Ka’aba to become an arena for massacre similar to what the Qarmatians committed in the 10th century when they covered the ‘Zamzam’ well with bodies of pilgrims whom they killed around the Ka’aba and hid the ‘Black Stone’ for 22 years.
Iran’s regime was close to committing that unspeakable crime through modern means – launching three ballistic missiles targeting Makkah. However, they were brought down by Saudi’s defense system, followed by harsh reactions against the attacks from the global community.
If this matter was taken lightly, we would have seen Iran’s terrorist guards repeating the 10th century massacre of pilgrims in the House of Almighty Allah – the Ka’aba. Despite the fact that the burden of resistance is on Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Bahrain, it is imperative to praise the participation of all coalition countries, in addition to the Muslim consensus against any attempt to compromise the sacred sites irrespective of the challenges at hand. In addition, the United Nations issued a resolution to stop Iran’s terrorism in the region since the latter is behind the widespread extremism and terrorism.
If the war continued for 100 years, the Yemenis, their military and the Arab coalition would not have slacked in their resistance against the Persian scheme. These countries are blessed with wealth, manpower and wise leaders who are looking towards the future and are working for it.
Today, the Mullah regime is facing the anger of its people who refused to spend their wealth on the expansionism scheme disguised under the delusional title of imposing the regime’s creed on the Muslim world. Although Iran gained in Lebanon at some point and found supporters in Iraq, there is no doubt that it is currently nursing fatal injuries in Yemen. The war has ended, whether Iran accepts it or not. The Houthis are convinced there is no hope in imposing the victor’s conditions, especially after the truth and the secret files were exposed.
This is in addition to its plot to deprive Yemenis of food and medicine while putting the blame on the Arab coalition. They forgot that modern communication technologies have dropped the masks of lies and fabrications. Therefore, the Houthis’ tactic to delay the implementation of the Stockholm agreement through their withdrawal from Hodeida is nothing more than the cry of a dying person, as well as the collapse of Iran’s scheme and its Houthi puppets. The region is coming out of the terrorism and war tunnel, into which Tehran’s regime had been dragging it during the past four decades.
