  • Yemen separatists capture Aden, government confined to palace: residents

    01/30/2018 10:27:42 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 11 replies
    Fighting between southern separatists, backed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), against forces loyal to Saudi-based president Hadi, risk crippling their once united campaign against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement in Yemen’s north. The UAE is a major component of a Saudi-led military coalition of Arab states that has supported Hadi’s government since the Houthis seized much of the country, including the capital Sanaa, three years ago. Hadi’s government operates out of Aden, while he lives in Saudi Arabia. Residents said forces loyal to the Southern Transitional Council (STC), formed last year to push for the revival of the former independent...

    Alarmist scientists have been caught red-handed tampering with raw data in order to exaggerate sea level rise.The raw (unadjusted) data from three Indian Ocean gauges – Aden, Karachi and Mumbai – showed that local sea level trends in the last 140 years had been very gently rising, neutral or negative (ie sea levels had fallen). But after the evidence had been adjusted by tidal records gatekeepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) it suddenly showed a sharp and dramatic rise.The whistle was blown by two Australian scientists Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier in a paper for Earth Systems and Environment.

    Jewish Chronicle ^ | 11-26-17 | Tom Gross
    The removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored, says Tom Gross It is not surprising, given the sheer scale of the Holocaust and its sadism, that it has dominated contemporary discourse among Jews and others. But, while the extermination of European Jews has rightfully (though belatedly) generated a great deal of study and research, the removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored. This ignorance extends to policy-makers at the highest level. Some journalists and politicians I have spoken to have expressed surprise when I even mentioned that Jews...

    The strange and fascinating world of the British spy known as ‘Chris Whatsit’ was unravelling yesterday. Christopher Steele was once MI6’s top spy on Russian affairs and lived in the shadows until being unmasked as the alleged author of the ‘dirty dossier’ on Donald Trump. He was dubbed ‘Chris Whatsit’ by his late wife on their first date because she could not remember his name – but he revelled in being a man of mystery. Now the 52-year-old is hoping to return to anonymity after fleeing his £1.5million home in Surrey, telling his neighbour to look after his three cats....
  • Masked Muslims DESECRATE, DESTROY THOUSANDS of graves of British war heroes

    Now, even fallen kuffars cannot be left in peace. This rampage of wanton destruction arises from the desire of Islam to wipe the memory of any other faith or culture from the face of the Earth. The aim is to create a world based upon the false belief that nothing other than Islam ever existed. A dozen masked militia ripped apart a cemetery in the former British colony of Aden, Yemen. Nearly two thousand graves were vandalised in the spree of destruction and St Joseph Church, which overlooks the graveyard, was razed to the ground. Wielding their tools, the fanatics...

    China's construction of military base in the strategic location of Djibouti is just the first of what will likely be an ongoing expansion in friendly foreign ports around the world, says a Pentagon report. IMAGE: The Gwadar port that Pakistan is developing with Chinese help. China is likely to establish additional military bases in Pakistan and other countries with which it has longstanding friendly ties and similar strategic interests, a new Pentagon report said on Wednesday as the world's largest army increasingly flexed its muscles.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities Uber driver is charged with trying to kidnap a young woman he picked up on the job. Dahir Aden, 50, is charged with a felony count of false imprisonment after he refused to drive a teenage girl home and instead took her to his home in West St. Paul. The girl told police Aden planned to sexually assault her. Investigators say it was the girl’s quick thinking that allowed her to be rescued. According to the criminal complaint, Dahir Aden picked up a young woman from her North Minneapolis apartment the night of Aug....

    (Mother Teresa's missionary order) VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis was “shocked and profoundly saddened” by the murder of four Missionaries of Charity and 12 other people at a home for the elderly in Aden, Yemen. Gunmen entered the building on Friday and went room to room, handcuffing victims before shooting them in the head. A message signed by the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said the Holy Father “sends the assurance of his prayers for the dead and his spiritual closeness to their families and to all affected from this act of senseless and diabolical violence.” The message...

    Unseen by most of the world, the once tranquil port of Aden is being steadily infiltrated by jihadists from both al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP) and the so-called Islamic State (IS). They are not in charge of the city, the military forces of the UAE are. But in the last few days disturbing reports have emerged of the summary executions of prisoners by the jihadists, along with their black flags hoisted onto public buildings.

    Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna thanks the governments of China and Russia, which helped in the evacuation. “The situation is under control, we have information that for now everything is going well,” he said. Russia air lifted 20 Polish citizens from the capital of Yemen, Sana’a to Moscow on board two aircraft, while the Chinese navy took four Polish citizens across a narrow strait from Aden to Djibuti. Yemen has recently been invaded by a Saudi-led coalition set up to dislodge the Shia Houthis who have taken over the capital city. (an)

    Senior editor of Saudi online paper Arab News, Siraj Wahab, has just tweeted that Egyptian ships forced Iranian retreat from Bab Al-Mandab strait near the Port of Aden. A statement issued by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry stated that Egypt is coordinating with Saudi Arabia, together with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for the participation of its Air Force, Navy, and ground forces, should it prove necessary. However, it should be noted that Iran threatened Saudi Arabia today (Thursday), announcing that its foray into Yemen would end up costing it dearly.

    Yemen's defence minister was set to resume his duties from second city Aden on Sunday after defecting from Shiite militia who control the capital, a source in the president's office said. General Mahmud Subaihi's escape from Sanaa follows that of Western-backed President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, who has called on ministers to join him in the southern port city to reestablish the government if they can. The minister made it safely to Aden but one of his guards was killed in a firefight with Huthi militiamen during the escape, an aide told AFP. The militia had named Subaihi head of a...

    October 12 marks the 12th anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole. The grim milestone comes as President Obama faces mounting questions about his administration's dereliction of duty during the murderous attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. And it comes just a day after resurgent al-Qaida thugs pulled off the drive-by assassination of a top Yemeni security official who worked at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa. These are not "bumps in the road." These are gravesites on the blood-spattered path to surrender. Seventeen U.S. sailors died in the brutal suicide attack on the guided Navy missile destroyer as...

    MIAMI (Reuters) - Guantanamo war crimes prosecutions of five prisoners charged with plotting the September 11 hijacked planes attacks will be delayed by two months because of lost files caused by Pentagon computer problems, U.S. military officials said on Wednesday. A weeklong pretrial hearing had been set to begin on Monday in the death penalty case against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the attacks, and four alleged co-conspirators. The judge overseeing the case postponed the hearing until June 17 at the request of defense lawyers who said three to four weeks' worth of their confidential work files had...

    Those convicted Friday include 40-year-old Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud, who prosecutors said used his connections as a popular imam at a mosque in San Diego's City Heights neighborhood to raise money for the group. The other defendants were two San Diego taxi drivers, 36-year-old Basaaly Saeed Moalin and 56-year-old Issa Doreh, and 37-year-old Ahmed Nasir Taalil Mohamud of Anaheim, whose financial transfer business Shidaal Express was used to route the money, prosecutors said. Government attorneys played tapes of telephone calls, many of them between Moalin and the late Aden Hashi Ayrow, who was among the top leaders of al-Shabaab until he...

    An institution once held in high esteem by the public has been shamed by revelations that it failed to report sexual abuse against children. Despite knowledge by its officials that sexual predators were victimizing children, they swept it under the rug. Now that the news media has brought this to public attention, the institution is facing well-placed anger and demands for justice. Highly placed officials have been forced out. The federal government is investigating whether the refusal to report this child sexual abuse violated federal laws that apply because of reporting requirements attached to the large amounts of federal funding....

    A suicide bomber drove a booby-trapped car into an army checkpoint outside Yemen's southern port city of Aden on Sunday, killing at least nine soldiers and wounding 21 others, officials and medical sources said. The attack, which the government blamed on al Qaeda's Yemen-based wing, comes weeks after the army deployed security forces to surround the coastal city, which lies east of a shipping strait where some 3 million barrels of oil pass daily. The military has been trying to stop militants from slipping into Aden, after they seized several areas in the neighbouring province of Abyan in recent months...

    China's navy takes charge on the high seas December 17, 2010 Just upon its arrival at the Gulf of Aden towards dusk on Christmas Day in 2009, the frigate Chaohu received its first task - to escort the Chinese bulk carrier Dexinhai 800 nautical miles away. At that time, the ship had been hijacked in late October - with 27 crew aboard, dangerously short on food, drinkable water and fuel - and was still under the control of pirates waiting for a negotiated ransom to be paid. After 38 hours of high-speed sailing, the frigate arrived at the waters east...
