Reported on Aljazeera this morning that the Yemeni president butcher is already in Saudi Arabia for, what is referred to as medical treatment.

The Yemeni butcher was supposedly injured from shelling of the president's palace. He had ordered the shelling of the tribal leader's (Al Ahmar) house earlier. Rumors state that the shelling of the presidential palace was really staged by the butcher and his thugs, hoping for world's sympathy!

Let's hope that the butcher of Yemen rots in Saudi Arabia. May he fall into a coma like the butcher Sharon of the terrorist state of Israel.

More power to Yemen and its people seeking freedom and Democracy.

Note: the story on Aljazeera English is quite different. While the former states that Saleh, Yemen’s President handed over the the city to al-Qaeda to lure the world’s attention towards the risks involved should he be ousted, the English version stated:

Away from the political drama in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, troops clashed with fighters in the south of the country.

The army on Sunday tried to dislodge an armed Islamist group that had taken control of several key buildings, including an ammunition factory, in the town of Jaar in Abyan province.

One soldier was reported killed in the clash and other reports suggested that the police had deserted the town. A day earlier, five soldiers were killed in an ambush in Lowdar, also in Abyan.

The province is seen as a stronghold of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemeni wing of the network which Western countries and neighbour Saudi Arabia fear could take advantage of any power vacuum if protesters succeed in ousting Saleh.

Whether Saleh or Gaddafi, these two thugs use Al Qaeda at will to achieve their criminal objectives! The love they have for ruling, oppressing and stealing their countries resources, one would think these two thugs believe that they “own” their countries!

The US State Department has admitted that American military cooperation with Yemeni officials includes military aid to maintain “stability” of the Sana’a regime.

According to the State Department, military relations between Yemen and the United States are steadily improving with the resumption of International Military Education and Training assistance and the transfer of military equipment and spare parts, Press TV’s Marjan Asi reports from Washington.

However, political analysts believe that the so-called “security” and “stability” that the US has been promoting in Yemen is actually intended to keep the embattled ruler Ali Abdullah Saleh in power.

The majority of Yemenis are unhappy with the expanding US military ties with their government, especially considering the harsh crackdown on protesters in recent days. This has led to an uneasy alliance between the two governments, facing an uncertain future.

In recent days, thousands of Yemeni protesters have taken to the streets across the country, calling for the ouster of Saleh.

The Yemeni president has described the pro-democracy protesters as “elements of a coup.”

Saleh, in power for 33 years, said that he would leave power after his term expires in 2013. He has also promised not to hand power to his son.

The Yemeni incumbent president has also pledged to raise wages of government employees and to provide 60,000 job opportunities for university graduates.

The Yemeni government crackdown on protesters, inspired by revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, has so far left at least 24 people dead.

The US also occasionally carries out drone attacks in Yemen. Despite such extraordinary measures, the country has grown increasingly unstable.

It was predicted here first, on Attending the World, that the Tunisian uprising would inspire the rest of the Arab world to erupt against their ruthless despicable dictators.

 

 

Although the spark of freedom skipped Libya and ignited the first Facebook revolution ever, in Egypt, toppling a powerful dictator (who we continued to call as “friend” throughout this uprising), strangely enough, the remaining dictators still don’t get it. Bahrain‘s King in his joke of a-kingdom,  offered each family $1,000 per family (in their currency).

What was he thinking?

Libya, finally, and Yemen are in the process of toppling their despicable dictators.

Soon, North Africa will become the first dictator-free Arab land – and on the way to establishing the new United States of Arabia!

After Yemen ousts its dictator (who has been in power longer than Mubarak), Saudi Arabia and Jordan must go next. Then Syria, Iraq, the UAE and Bahrain… maybe even Sudan. Even Iran is exploding! Maybe Israelis will soon explode against their Nazi-like government as well since they know that their government is a most hypocritical and ruthless dictatorship.

What a beautiful picture this will finally paint.

Israel will no longer be surrounded by complicit Arab dictators who bowed to Israel’s every humiliating demand, despite Israel’s continued Nazi-like massacres, uprooting and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. The Israeli terrorist government, feeling the heat, issued statements indicating their commitment to “peace.”

Now? For 62 years of tyranny and brutality in the name of a religion, Israel reigned terror on Palestinian civilians. Not once have we seen any serious attempt for peace from the side of Israelis. On the contrary, they continued to create an Auschwitz-like camp (Gaza) and starved 1.5 million Palestinians to death. They continued to build settlements on occupied territories to create what they called “facts on the ground.”

Israel will soon face a real democratic United States-like “Arab country” which will be treated with the utmost respect throughout the world. Then, the U.S. will abandon its other dictator-ally called Israel.  And then the Arabs (Jews, Christians and Muslims) will liberate Palestine from Zionism, in the simplest most effective way: a peaceful Intifada or protests!

Then there shall be peace!

Egypt protests: Three reported dead in ‘day of revolt’

And Egypt’s Foreign Minister said “It won’t happen here..”

 

It’s been just two days since the people of Tunis forced a heathen-dictator out and became free. This is the first dictatorship in the Middle East that has evaporated. This is the first chance ever for a real and first democracy to descend upon the Middle East and North Africa.

Every Arab leader – and the Israeli War Criminal Netanyahu – has watched Tunisia‘s revolt in fear while citizens across the Arab world watch in solidarity, elated at that rarity: open revolution.

Egypt, Jordan, Algeria and Morocco are seen as the other countries most likely to face serious popular unrest over unemployment, corruption and hopelessness, though social, political and economic conditions vary considerably between them. [Guardian]

Libya

Dictators – and frankly morons – like Gaddafi of Libya, condemned the Tunisian uprising; he had to open his mouth making such ridiculous comments that “Tunisians rushed into this.. and that the deposed dictator was “the best Tunisian to have ever ruled Tunisia..”[source]

Today – January 16, 2011, Libyans are about to do the same – and hopefully, topple this old senile and arrogant so-called leader as they pretty much make the same demands.

Jordan

Thousands of Jordanians have taken to the streets. While we still hope to see them topple their corrupt dictator-King, they have demanded an end to corruption and demonstrated in front of the Jordanian Parliament and shouting anti-government slogans. It’s a start. (source Aljazeera)

Yemen

The people here have warned the government to take notice of what happened in Tunisia and warned against adjusting the country’s constitution to extend the current dictator’s term!

Israel and Palestine

While the protests may not be related to the Tunisian uprising, thousands of Israelis rallied in defence of human and civil rights alongside Palestinians.

Under the banner of the “Democratic Camp”, a coalition of organisations and prominent individuals, the marchers heard speakers lambast the Israeli government, singling out the rightwing foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, who is seen as threatening Israel‘s democracy.

Lebanon

Saad Hariri faced calls to remain in exile after 11 Hezbollah ministers quit, causing his government to collapse. Anything to do with Tunisia? You be the judge: the timing suggests that it may just be!

Hariri said today that the crisis, Lebanon’s worst in nearly three years, would not be solved without further mediation from Saudi Arabia and Syria, the two parties in a failed deal that was supposed to help end months of political paralysis.

Happy New Year. We’re off to a fantastic start!

Freedom and True Democracy coming to a country near you!
