Saudi Arabia ‘deliberately targeting impoverished Yemen’s farms and agricultural industry’
The Yemen war uniquely combines tragedy, hypocrisy and farce. First come the casualties: around 10,000, almost 4,000 of them civilians. Then come those anonymous British and American advisers who seem quite content to go on “helping” the Saudi onslaughts on funerals, markets and other obviously (to the Brits, I suppose) military targets.

There is substantial evidence emerging that the Saudis and their “coalition” allies – and, I suppose, those horrid British “advisers” – are deliberately targeting Yemen’s tiny agricultural sector in a campaign which, if successful, would lead a post-war Yemeni nation not just into starvation but total reliance on food imports for survival.

Much of this would no doubt come from the Gulf states which are currently bombing the poor country to bits.

Data strongly suggests that the Saudis are deliberately striking at agricultural infrastructure in order to destroy Yemen’s civil society.

In Saudi Arabia, children are indoctrinated at a young age to hate Shia Muslims, minority sect muslims and non-muslims. The state religion is implemented by state-sponsored preachers that ensure a distorted version of reality is delivered to each student. This culture of hatred is aligned with Saudi foreign interests, which include funding extremists around the world that kill Shia Muslims, minority sect muslims and non-muslims alike. This curriculum is then exported to countries abroad, where it is preached and delivered by teachers. Textbooks from Saudi Arabia are found globally, from Syria, to Pakistan, to Canada, the U.S., and U.K. Saudi Arabia funds the building of mosques and Islamic centres in western and non-western countries to promote their ideology. The result of this indoctrination is the creation of fringe terrorists groups dedicated to the decimation of Shias, and other minority sects, and of course non-Muslims. 

Despite this public knowledge, countries like the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Spain, Pakistan and a litany of others are allies with Saudi Arabia and protect and further its foreign interests. 


“Most important, according to the Saudi foreign minister, although it is the Saudis who have ultimate authority to choose targets, “British and American military officials are in the command and control center for Saudi airstrikes on Yemen” and “have access to lists of targets.” In sum, while this bombing campaign is invariably described in Western media outlets as “Saudi-led,” the U.S. and U.K. are both central, indispensable participants. As the New York Times editorial page put it in August: “The United States is complicit in this carnage,” while The Guardian editorialized that “Britain bears much responsibility for this suffering.”

From the start, the U.S.- and U.K.-backed Saudis have indiscriminately and at times deliberately bombed civilians, killing thousands of innocent people. […]  As the Saudis continued to recklessly and intentionally bomb civilians, the American and British weapons kept pouring into Riyadh, ensuring that the civilian massacres continued. Every once and awhile, when a particularly gruesome mass killing made its way into the news, Obama and various British officials would issue cursory, obligatory statements expressing “concern,” then go right back to fueling the attacks.”

Saudi Arabia’s Assault On Yemen: How Crimes Against Humanity Profit the Most Powerful Countries in the World

“…As a country, Yemen has struggled to remain intact while combatting terrorism, insurgency, and crippling poverty. Ignored for years in its time of need, Yemen has become the focal point of generation for hundreds of billions of dollars for western world powers. Stable nations from the “first-world” originally unresponsive to the suffering of Yemeni people now stand to make a fortune through their demise…”

Saudi Arabian Women need your help.

END MALE GUARDIANSHIP LAWS IN SAUDI ARABIA. With enough global pressure, this could end in the next 5 years. These women could get in serious danger if they publicly speak for this cause, which rests a lot of the pressure squarely on the shoulders of people from outside Saudi Arabia to help spread awareness.

“Imagine that you have no control over your own life. Every decision is either already made for you, or has to be approved by someone for you. Feeling that even though you are a responsible adult you still have to be treated like a minor. Everyone tells you that it’s best for you, that they are protecting you.”

This is the life of women in Saudi Arabia because of the Male Guardianship laws. They have had enough, this has been going on too long. There is a hashtag trending right now called #StopEnslavingSaudiWomen, and with enough global pressure on this issue, it could end within the next 5 years. Another generation should not have to go through this. Please listen to these women’s stories, which you can find readily by searching this tag, and reblog this post and get involved further if you have the time. 









if you are tagged in this, it is because i am under the impression that you either have a large follower base or are a feminist. i’m not very popular on this site and i don’t know many popular blogs, so i’m resorting to what i can think of and if i figure out more, i will add more. i have tried to add the most info i could and also keep this short enough for people to actually read, but please add more if any rebloggers of this have more info.
