    Yemen Cholera epidemic (OP)


    Salaam

    Another update on the situation in Yemen

    Yemen Cholera epidemic is US and Saudi made!

    Yemen is a country that has been ravaged by war and is on the brink of famine. Two years of horrific conflict has killed more than 10,000 people, wounded 45,000 others, and displaced more than 11 percent of the country’s 26 million people.

    Yemen is now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world, according to international health authorities.

    The outbreak has surpassed 200,000 cases, and that number is growing by 5,000 a day.

    “In just two months, cholera has spread to almost every (part) of this war-torn country”, said World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan and UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake in a joint statement.

    More than 1,300 people have already died — one quarter of them children and the death toll is expected to rise.

    Cholera is caused by ingesting food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. If left untreated, it can cause severe dehydration and eventual death.

    Cholera is preventable and easily treatable with the proper resources, said Kurt Tjossem, the International Rescue Committee’s regional director for East Africa and the Horn. In Yemen, however, the collapsing infrastructure has cut off an estimated 14.5 million people — about half the country’s population from regular access to clean water, increasing the likelihood for the disease to spread.

    The crisis is “man-made,” said Stephen O’Brien, the U.N. under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, in a statement last week. For the past two years, Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war between Houthi rebels from the north of the country and a coalition of Arab states, led by Saudi Arabia and supported by the United States.

    “The cholera epidemic is in part due to the bombing of the water supply in Sana’a”, Senator Chris Murphy, D-Conn said. “There is a U.S. imprint on every civilian death inside Yemen.”

    The problem in Yemen is even worse considering the ever-widening issue of food insecurity and malnutrition, where 2.2 million children suffer from acute malnutrition.

    When malnutrition rises, the immunity of children falls, which makes them more susceptible to diseases like cholera.

    Yemen’s economy is crumbling and health care workers continue to work without any pay. According to UNICEF and WHO, an estimated 30,000 local health workers have not been paid their salaries for nearly 10 months.

    Almost half the country’s medical facilities have been destroyed. A Yemeni child dies every 10 minutes from the combined effects of hunger and lack of medical facilities.

    Yemen has been torn to pieces. The war which is Saudi led and driven by the US ambitions, has left millions of people at the mercy of deadly diseases like Cholera. Poverty has cursed the population where mothers hold their dying children helpless, not knowing where their next portion of food and water will come from.

    Saudi led forces have targeted farms, food facilities, water infrastructure, marketplaces, and even the port of Hudaidah, where most of the humanitarian aid was entering the country. Further crimes include of the Saud is the bombing of a funeral procession in October 2016 that resulted in 150 causalities.

    However Trump clinched an enormous $110bn deal during his trip to the kingdom in May, which will be used to bomb and murder more people in Yemen. The Saud family promised Trump that their military would undergo rigorous US training to reduce civilian casualties, signing a $750m training program.

    The treacherous royal family went further still and agreed that US advisers would sit in their air operations control centre.

    It is a damning indictment on the Saudi Kingdom that it has inflicted terrible pain on the Muslims of Yemen and then boasts to the Muslim world that they are the ‘Custodians of the Two Holy Mosques’. The Saud regime are only Custodians to America. Treachery is in their bloodstream and programmed in their DNA, from the days when Ibn Saud was handed Makkah and Medinah by British colonial forces. Just like the Saud family obeyed Britain in the past, they now obey in servitude the USA.

    There is only one solution to Yemen and that is to challenge the colonial agenda of the West in that land via the reestablishment of the Khilafah Rashidah.

    Since the destruction of the Khilafah, the entire Arab world has been plagued with rulers that are the most evil and deceitful in Islamic history. These rulers support the bombing of Muslim countries like Yemen and pay no heed to the spread of diseases like Cholera, that cause terrible suffering to the people. Only when the rulers of the Arab world are removed and the Ummah has a just leader that applies the Ruling of Allah, will all people gain protection from the malicious design of brutal vultures.

    Walaikum assalam rahmatullahi barakatuh

    Saudi involvement is complicated. I answered this lately on another forum So I'll post that here:


    Q What's going on in Yemen, can you explain? All I ever get is sad headshakes in response

    A. Yemen is very sad however all wars are. We never hear of civilians being massacred in Syria for example do we?, or how they're dying of famine and lack of medicine.

    The media just mentions the suffering of people of countries at war, which it has an interest in stopping sadly*.

    Any war these days are heertbreaking due to inevitable civilian casualties etc however if the West really cared to stop this suffering, it could lend it's military support to the legitimate Yemen government and help it to quickly over-power the houthi rebels.

    What is Saudi supposed to do?, stop it's Ariel bombing and risk a Iran/shia takeover of Yemen or risk a shia state in Yemen and thereby risk it's own sovereignty to the age old shia enemy of sunni Islam?

    I don't think that's likely so the West should step in and assist Yemen and Saudi to defeat the terrorists quick time. That's how you stop civilian suffering in a complicated war like this.

    *the media and other western politicians' and activists interest in stopping the Saudi bombing of houthis is not to save civilian suffering as they make out. Because if they really cared they would have campaigned all these years for stopping Afghan, Syria rohingya etc etc suffering too. Their interests is really 'divide and conquer'. They'd love to see Yemen split into two

    What A evil hypocrite state of affairs western politics is in these days. We only feign civilian concern when we see a political or financial benefit to us

    Q. How can Saudi Arabia be threatened in its sovereignity if a neighboring state has a Shiite government?

    A. Iran is arming the houthis in Yemen. This is a known fact which some Google searches should verify

    Basically, Iran wants to dominate all Muslim countries with shiaism (note how Iran lends it's military support to the shia governments of Iraq and Syria) as they believe that to be the true Islam and they regard Sunnis as hypocrites

    So if there is a shia takeover of Yemen or a shia state established in Yemen then it would be ultimately an Iranian colony and Irans ultimate goal is to rule the 2 holy cities of Makkah and Medinah.

    Remember when Saddam invaded Quwait and Americans told Saudi that Saudi is at risk of invasion too as Saddam is on their border?

    Well Iran or a shia state on border of Saudi is far more risky as shias have more imperial tendencies over Saudi then Saddam

    Nobodys clean in this conflict, no clear 'good guys' or 'bad guys'. Only innocents. You are right though we need an end to the bombing, negotiations that will create a lasting and durable peace.

    Good brother to follow if you want a different view from the usual MSM perspective.
