Why people with a voice must demand that world leaders intervene in the Saudi-led coalition attack on the Yemeni people.

This is the basic history of territory, and important differences between Yemeni and Saudi way of life and beliefs.

This attack on Yemen, a country of peaceful and simple-living people, is rooted in the royal family’s personal vendetta which dates back to 1932.

That is the year world leaders agreed to allow al-Saud to claim the territory he had besieged using paid militia, going from village to village pillaging and killing; and even back then the Yemeni fought off al-Saud’s invasion of Arabia.

Yemen was recognized as an independent nation at the time al-Saudi was given territory in Arabia to call his personal realm.Yemen was recognized as a separate nation at the time al-Saud was allowed to claim territory in Arabia as his realm, and it is made clear in this map from 1932 that outlined al-Saud’s Kingdom borders.

You see, Abdulaziz al-Saud was never crowned by the people – he crowned himself – and the world leaders backed him as king.

And today, over 2.5 million innocent Yemeni are trapped between Western politics and Saudi weapon sales.

And the undeniable consequence is Saudi Arabia’s siege and systematic demolishing of Yemen.

map of middle east and africaThe self-proclaimed royal family has always inflicted inhumane suffering on their own citizens. Now they have laid siege to a bordering country and trapped its people; inflicting Yemenis with the slow, painful death by starvation; loss of limbs, livelihood and loved ones; fear from constant unlawful airstrikes that drop outlawed cluster-bombs on their homes and facilities; and then there are militant snipers indiscriminately killing civilian men, women, children, even babies – and the people have no safe place to run or hide – and the world leaders still back the king.

Below is a point by point reason why people in Western nations need to protect the Yemenis, and save their culture from complete destruction by the Saudis.

It is time to stop the invasion by Saudi Arabia and give Yemenis back the freedom to choose their own government.

Even more importantly the ability to protect their way of life from a neighbouring tyrannical kingdom that will subject the Yemenis to a fate worse than death.

Put yourself in their shoes… walk a day… and then write your government and the United Nations Security Council – demand the UNSC intervene in the attack on Yemen.
