Last week the leader of Yemen’s AnsarAllah movement, Abdul Malik al-Houthi, offered to release captured Saudi mercenaries in exchange for Hamas members illegally detained by the Saudi regime. Senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar welcomed the proposal. Over the past several months the Saudi regime has been arresting several Palestinians, most probably to appease Zionist Israel.The offer by Yemen’s leadership is a reminder that no Muslim leader can make fake excuses for forgetting the Palestinian cause.
If Yemeni leadership can prioritize the oppression of Palestinians in their difficult situation, what excuse do other rulers of Muslim countries have? Are they scared that their bank accounts in Western countries will be frozen?
