The Late Imam Mokbel Al-wadei was sponsored and sent to Sa’ada through Saudi money only to combat the growing Zaidian power in the region. This happened because the Houthis gained wealth and power after helping Saleh in 1994 war. Now, the interest have changed. Houthis allying with Albeidh in the promise of sportive Southern State. And All that happened to us is Saudi and U.S. responsibility. The unbreakable bond between petro-capitalism and Salifist faith only to keep people in the Middle East on the shadow of civilization and continue the systematize plunder of the region’s wealth. For you my American pen-pal the uppermost ruling class is creating illusory enemies through different stages of history. First it was Nazism, then Communism, now Al-Qaeda and later it will be Shiitism only to monopolize global power and give the least to other classes in America under the pretext of the sacred mission of spreading globalized democracy and Freedom.
