"Legitimacy", as a state codification, is a broad national political and Popular Alliance, the founder of which is the revolution of February 2011, the Gulf initiative, the outcome of the National Dialogue Conference, the United Nations resolutions, the resistance to the coup d'état and the restoration of the state. The "legitimacy" leadership discourse must embody this broad alliance, and the partisan rhetoric of any political power within this broad alliance must be separated between the official rhetoric of the state, which must reflect the general consensus, without the official position to impose the rhythms or policies of any party, whatever the reasons or circumstances. The discourse

The Deception of History.. مكر التاريخ

In tyranny lies the cunning of history.. And if tyrants tried to make themselves out of this history, they are in fact only the deceitful face of it, the face that is being made in its hideous spaces which is illuminated by the struggles and sacrifices of its people. The deception of history lies in the fact that tyrants are made by frightened and trembling hands. If you see a tyrant on top of his people, you must know that everyone around him is cowards, frightened and tremulous, and it is those who are accepted by the tyrant to keep in his vicinity. Tyrant does not accept the brave on his side, as the brave does not accept to remain in tyranny. We must have learned that courage and tyranny

In an interview with Sky News Arabic, Al- Makhlavi Minister of Foreign Office said there was no political or popular cover for the Houthi-backed militias from Iran, adding that the legitimate forces were making military progress on the Shaboh and West Coast fronts. The Yemeni minister noted that the military action was accompanied by a state of popular outrage at the practices of the Iranian Houthi militias, stressing that the Iranian militias had no state, home and partnership programmes. He added that there is no political solution with the Houthi militias, because their decision is with Iran, which has stalled any chance of peace, adding that Iranian militias are trying to replicate the C

On the sidelines of the British Foreign Office annual ceremony

At the annual ceremony of the British Foreign Office on Tuesday night, December 12, many diplomats spoke to me about ''Yemen after Saleh'', some of whom knew him closely and some who served as ambassadors or members of missions of various countries in Yemen. My reply was always that Saleh chose his end as it was, and no one forced him into it...... Who disagreed with him politically chose a different end for him, but Saleh preferred a different choice, perhaps with calculations not well seized. However, the fate of Yemen is not determined by the departure of any person whatever his position whatsoever. Saleh is in history now, the attitude of those who have benefited from his regime will cla

The Departure of the Great Artist Abu Bakr Salem

It was the first time I met the artist Abu Bakr Salem Belfaqih, I think, in the year 1959, I was a primary pupil at the Basabir Islamic Charitable school in Aden. He was participating in the rehearsals for the annual day of the visit of the Ayidros in the presence of the great artist, Alexander Thabit, Yahya Mekki, Ahmed bin Ahmed Kassem and Mohamed Abdo Zaidi, violinist Nadeem Awad, batsman and other young artists who make up the Alexander Thabet squad. The band, which has been on the hands of many big artists, including our late artist Abu Bakr Salem, has been reviving every year visit to the Ayedros from the Baster School in the choir of musical marches up to the tomb of the Aridros, and

The General People's Congress Party.......” the Rebellion” Where's the anchor?

As always, people are not preoccupied with the substance and content of the event, but with the actors involved in the event. Those who love Ali Saleh have decided that he was killed in his house resisting and heroic, and they insist on it for many reasons, including turning the page past at a sharp juncture that conceals its imperfections forever. As for his opponents, they decided differently that he was killed as he fled towards his hometown of Sanhan, and they did not just brutally kill him, but to be a shameful death and to deprive him of any sympathy even for humanity, especially if Saleh often used the term "fugitive" to spite his opponents. It is irrelevant to this controversy in it


If ever there was a case of needing a long spoon to sup with the devil, the killing on Monday of the former president of Yemen by his erstwhile allies, the Iran-backed Houthi militia, proves it. While president, Ali Abdullah Saleh struggled to contain Houthi violence. But he then teamed up with them in 2015 and unleashed civil war. Saleh’s fate was sealed over the weekend when he announced he was prepared to abandon his Houthi partners and start peace talks. The falling out between the two allies illustrates two important points. One, the strategy of the Arab Coalition, though much criticized, is working. It has succeeded in bringing Saleh to the table. Second, it belies the widespread misun
