"Allah is great. Death to America. Death to Israel. A curse upon the Jews. Victory to Islam."

Reader comment on item: The Emptying of Yemen

Submitted by Robert (United States), Mar 23, 2016 at 10:39

It is generally thought that ISIS is a horror Muslim embodiment that stems from Sunni roots; the capital of Sunni Islam is arguably Saudi Arabia with its Wahhabi school of what a good Muslim is.

But that's because primarily Shia Muslims haven't adopted the tactic of wearing and detonating Suicide Vests. Shia Islam's Jihad, on the other hand, takes on more of the form of classical Revolutionary tactic - such as employing paramilitary organizations which the Nazis used (the SS): the Revolutionary Guards of Iran, and (Shia) Hezbollah from Lebanon.

But the anti-Western and anti-Israel ideology is the same, but it is also more lethal - as Netanyahu recognizes because it is state-sponsored - by the supreme leader, the Ayatollah Khomeini. And this is the slogan which the Shia Houthis in Yemen have adopted:

"Allah is great. Death to America. Death to Israel. A curse upon the Jews. Victory to Islam."
