The shock of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights’ report on Yemen, which is full of political and legal mines must be a “positive shock.”
The “international” Arab coalition is not just the coalition of Saudi Arabia and the UAE as these two countries are acting in Yemen under the umbrella of international legitimacy and the UN Security Council resolutions. That’s just a reminder!
This language and spirit are what was missing in the UN “experts” report, regardless of the report’s details.
The report’s flaw – despite the fact that it condemned the Houthis a little and this is normal! – is, as we said, that it had a strange odor and attempted to “normalize” legal and legitimate equality between the Khomeini Houthi coup camp, which is a danger to Saudi Arabia and the UAE in particular, with Yemeni legitimacy.
While lamenting the humanitarian situation, the report, for example, ignored Saudi Arabia’s, the UAE’s and Kuwait’s donation of $1.180 billion to UN agencies operating in Yemen.
The report also marginalized the truth that the ruling ceiling to everything that’s happening in Yemen and regarding Yemen is governed according to the three internationally recognized references: the national dialogue decisions, the Gulf initiative and the relevant UN Security Council resolutions especially Resolution 2216.
This is an indicator that the report has an unpleasant smell. The opposing camp quickly employed it as seen in the tweet of Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani who sympathetically advised and said: “The UN report about Yemen is worrying,” and called for morality and humanity!
The positive shock, which the Coalition members must think of, especially Saudi Arabia and the UAE, is how to confront the leftist-Khomeini poisonous propaganda against us in western capitals early, and from front lines.
This is the issue. This is the ounce of prevention that is worth a pound of cure.
