Forsvar og mure

Antisemitisme, FN, Israel — Drokles on November 7, 2009 at 6:57 am

Mens verdenssamfundet sad og fordømte Israel i FN for at forsvare sine grænser mod raketangreb, bombede Saudiarabien sidst på ugen de iranskstøttede Houthi oprørere i Yemen, som man kan læse på Berlingske Tidende

- I går eftermiddags begyndte saudiarabiske luftangreb med meget kraftige bombardementer af deres (oprørernes) positioner, ikke bare på grænsen, men også ved deres hovedstillinger omkring Saada, siger regeringsrådgiveren med henvisning til hovedstaden i den nordlige provins, hvor oprørerne holder til.

Ingen stat vil finde sig i at have iranskstøttede subversive styrker rendende rundt på eller i nærheden af sit territorium. Fra Memri

According to the article, the Yemen government’s announcement that it had captured an Iranian ship smuggling arms to the Houthis [1] meant that Yemen-Iran relations were at a turning point: “Although Tehran denied reports that an Iranian vessel carrying armor-piercing weapons to the Houthi rebels was captured off the Yemen coast, the incident added a new element to the many that are contributing to the deterioration in Yemen-Iran relations and have led them to [this critical point]. It would seem that San’a’s anger over Iran’s interferences is growing along with the senior Yemen officials’ conviction that Iran is finding more and more way of supporting the Houthis - whether through funds, weapons, or media support.

“Tension reached its peak two weeks ago, when San’a cancelled the Yemen visit of Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, who was coming to discuss relations between the two countries - which have been in a very sensitive condition indeed since the outbreak, 10 weeks ago, of the sixth war between the Yemen military and the Houthis.”

According to Al-Watan, the Yemen government fears that Iran’s support for the Houthis is aimed at undermining stability in Yemen, and at turning the country into an arena for wars - and thus threatening Saudi Arabia. It wrote: “San’a is still using diplomatic [language] regarding Iran’s support for the Houthis, by saying that it is [certain] elements in the Iranian religious establishment that are behind it, and not the Iranian leadership. But elements who follow Yemen-Iran relations confirm that San’a’s patience has been worn thin by Iran’s interference in its domestic affairs, and that it is not ruling out the possibility that the Houthis have direct contacts with high-ranking Iranian officials.

I et for arabiske muslimers vedkommende sjældent anfald af rettidig omhu er saudierne gået i gang med at sikre sig mod det, som yemenitterne ikke er de bedste til at sikre dem imod og som de helt mister evnen til når Yemen er faldet fra hinanden, som man kan læse på BBC

In order to defend the most powerful economy - and biggest oil reserves - of the Persian Gulf, the Saudi Kingdom’s 9,000km (5,590 mile) border is currently being reinforced with one of the longest security fences in the world.

(…)

A security fence is already in place on the Yemeni border, also built by EADS.

Og BBC har en lille rundtur til andre sikkerhedshegn/barrierer/mure, som man let glemmer når man sidder og fordømmer Israel.
