    Rockets have been fired by the AQAP on the US embassy in Yemen, no injuries or casualties.

    This is becoming a new sectarian war, al-Qaeda against the Houthi Shias.

    Apparently AQ launched more car bomb attacks today after Houthi's conquered more land on the offensive which first day had almost 300 casualties. Another Muslim country destroyed by sectarian war, this is just great....

    I don't even know if I should keep caring anymore, it's depressing.

    You are right, it is depressing. When will this all end?

    I don't know about you but I follow religious insight on current events. Pretty much every scholar has stated the events in Syria are significant and that it is the beginning of the end times. The events to follow will occur in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Strong hadith has foretold of a fitnah in Saudi Arabia and shortly after that Hazrat Mahdi will emerge and will ask for volunteers. A lot will come from Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Palestine. Some armies will still try fighting him but will fail, when that failure occurs he will lead the followers to Syria where a big attack will occur with many casualties on both sides but we will come out on top and I believe liberate Palestine in the process. After that more things will occur as well. It is better to die during the 'great battle' because afterwards the Deceiver will emerge.

    Yes, the historical accounts talk a lot about "Halab" (Aleppo), where the Dajjal will come from. And Najdi fitna will start from Najd (Riyadh) in Saudi Arabia. Prophecies are coming out to be correct.

    Well you already know our Hadith is different from yours. Hazrat Mahdi will emerge from modern day Saudi Arabia and lead an army to Syria. I can guarantee you that army won't be secular bathist regime, lol. Dajjal will emerge from modern day Iran after most major events occurred, most of population of earth will be gone. Then Isa(AS) will come down unto Damascus. Aleppo isn't the one you're thinking, it is modern day ghouta where a big battle will occur if I'm correct. You need to memorize surah Al Kahf to be safe from Dajjal's fitnah. Most of his followers will be Persian, Turkish, Jewish, bedioun and women.

    So we are safe inshallah.

    Surah Kahf is my favourite Quranic surah. Indeed, we are waiting for the day when Hazrat Mahdi comes.

    Re: Conflict in Yemen

    http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middle...640578131.html

    Al Jazeera: When will the Houthis withdraw from the capital?

    Mohammed al-Bukhaiti: We will only do this when the government is formed. We have made it clear in the agreement that we will do so once there is a government that can assume security duties. This is not about a takeover of the capital. In fact, it is a huge burden for us to be responsible for law and order across the capital and we want to see the end of it when a new government is formulated.

    AJ: Can you confirm news reports that Houthi fighters are besieging the Saudi embassy in Sanaa?

    Al-Bukhaiti: This is not true. The media overplayed this. We are only there to protect those places including government installations, embassies, and main roads because there are hardly any security forces in the capital now. Just a few days ago, the military police forces began patrolling some areas.

    AJ: How would you describe your relationship with the Yemeni president? Many accuse Houthis of undermining the president and even working to oust him?

    Al-Bukhaiti: During our protests, we did not call for the president to step down because we realised that the current state of affairs in Yemen, with all state institutions out of order, could not benefit from that. Indeed, we have rejected the Gulf initiative and we did not take part in the presidential elections. President Hadi is the only statesman about whom there is wide consensus among Yemenis across the board. And we do not want to go against this consensus.

    The sectarian factor has never been an issue in deciding who we ally ourselves with. While it is part of who we are but it occupies a secondary role and is not a decisive factor.

    AJ: Have you reached a consensus over who should be the next prime minister?

    Al-Bukhaiti: We have picked Ayoub al-Hamadi, an independent university professor. We want people with integrity to be able to combat the chronic problems of corruption plaguing the Yemeni ruling establishment.

    AJ: How would you describe the relationship with Tehran? Given that the conflict in Yemen has been framed along sectarian lines between Yemen's Shia population (represented by the Houthis) and the Sunni leaders of al-Islah party.

    Al-Bukhaiti: They say because Tehran lost Damascus, it took over Sanaa. This is an inaccurate analysis of the situation in Yemen. We are where we are today mostly because of domestic politics and power relations among political actors. What we have in common with Iran or Hezbollah [because the comparison was also made between the so-called Houthis' takeover of Sanaa and the Hezbollah takeover of Beirut in May 2008] or Hamas and Islamic Jihad, is that we have a common stand vis-a-vis Israel and US and we will cooperate with any political actor in the region who stands in the face of the US regional designs. But to grasp the complexities of the situation in Yemen, we should only look in Yemen for answers and not in Tehran or Lebanon for that matter.

    AJ: But did you, at any stage of the conflict, receive logistical or military support from Tehran?

    Al-Bukhaiti: The short answer to this is a categoric no.

    As for the sectarian aspect, Yemeni people, across the spectrum, do not perceive the conflict as such. The sectarian factor has never been an issue in deciding who we ally ourselves with. While it is part of who we are, it occupies a secondary role and is not a decisive factor. It is the other groups, al-Islah party and their allies, the al-Ahmer tribe, as well as some power centres within the government, that sought to use the sectarian card and frame the conflict along sectarian lines, however, in Yemen, tribal affiliation and Arab nationalistic sentiments have more of an influence among Yemenis than the sectarian identity.

    This seems to be as a response to what happened in Bahrain.

    The AQAP are a threat to Saudi Arabia, and they are the mortal enemies of the Houthis as well. But I don't think Saudi Arabia would want to see Iran dominant in the region, even if it means it has to jeopardise its own security, and strengthen the AQAP. Let's see what happens in Yemen now, I predict the conflict will get bloodier if the Houthis maintain control, the AQAP will be funded by the Salafi nations throughout the world to defeat the Houthis.

    There are a lot of people in Yemen besides AQAP. Iranian 'dominance' is a problem if you see it that way because the problem in the region is 'dominance' whether it is from the West, Iran, Israel or Arab axis states. Because people are more than split on one entity gaining dominance in the region.

    You don't need to conquer other peoples lands in order to gain influence. And you don't need influence in some parts of the ME. Syria is controlled by a minority, and majority are fighting for their rights. Sunni world won't accept that, and Syria plus Iraq are going back to their rightful owners. Same with Yemen, Yemen is overwhelmingly Sunni.

    Conflict in Yemen may have implications that saudis may not like. Too many conflicts coming nearer to their borders

    And supporting mass murderer Assad/Shabihah rapists has implications that are bad for all Shia in the region. No matter how much support US/Israel/West give you.

    You should be praying day and night that the Saudi regime is in power. They are good for you.

    How so Assad and saudis are both as bad as each other imo. The sooner the ME and muslim countries are rid of those that are in power by force the better for all. Simply these dictators are there to use their countries as cash point machine

    It depends, if you're from the Shia sect of Muslims, if IS gets influence in Saudi Arabia it can have bad implications. If Saudi Arabia falls, then Egypt will fall. Either or.

    And what will follow that will be an Sunni Caliphate.

    I also do, but the situation over there is very explosive. Not just for sects, for everybody. The world has gone too far, the Syrian people were ignored because the opposition refused to accept Israeli conditions. Read my post in the Syrian conflict thread and that will explain it.

    I don't know how you can say Yemen is overwhelmingly Sunni, when the Shias and Sunnis numbers are close to each other (Shias are about 45%, whereas the Sunnis are about 55%).

    Syria and Iraq are not going back 'to their rightful owners', they are getting destroyed, and have become failed states; all because of Salafi Arabs that promote takfiri Islam through "oil funds". And Yemen will go the same route if the Arab states fund terrorism through their "oil funds".

    Shia population in Yemen is absolutely no more than 23%. Stop inflating your numbers.
