Yemeni scholar Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi said in a Friday, March 13, 2020 sermon in Sanaa, Yemen that aired on Al-Eman TV (Yemen) that Saudi Arabia, which he referred to as "the United States of Saudi Arabia", has openly declared that it is normalizing relations with Israel. He said that the rise of the Saud clan, which he described "a Jewish family par excellence", was brought about by an Iraqi Jew named Mordechai as part of a Jewish plan to Judaize the holy mosques in Mecca and Medina. In addition, Sheikh Al-Ubeidi said that the late Houthi leader, Hussein Badreddin Al-Houthi, had predicted that the Jews, Israel, and America would take control of Mecca and Medina and create a pandemic in order to shut down the two holy mosques. Sheikh Al-Ubeidi further claimed that the coronavirus pandemic affects the holy mosques in Mecca and Medina but does not affect dancing halls were Saudi man and women meet and dance with foreigners.
Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi: "Today, the United States of Saudi Arabia openly declares that it has normalized its relations with the Zionist entity. This is meant to accomplish things that the Jews have wanted for decades. It is the Jews who gave rise to the Saud clan, which is a Jewish family par excellence. They hail from Mordechai, a Jew who came from Iraq. He settled in the city of Diriyah, in Najd, and then he gave rise to the Saud clan that took over the kingdom of Hijaz, and implemented the Jewish scheme to Judaize the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina.
"When will the believing Muslims wake up? When we see the Americans and the Jews destroying the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina?
"The martyred leader [Hussein Badreddin Al-Houthi] was the only one of all the scholars of the Islamic nation who said in 2002 and later that the Jews, Israel, and America would take control of the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina. He said that they would create pandemics and diseases in order to shut down the two holy mosques.
"Today, the dancing halls, where men and women mix, are open. The pandemics do not spread in the dancing halls. When Saudi men and women meet to dance, with an American man dancing in front of them and an American woman singing, and then a foreign band comes in, straight from the airport, and all these foreigners are mixing in the dancing halls – the coronavirus does not spread there. It only spreads in the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina.
