Houthi Ambassador To Iran Ibrahim Al-Dailami: The Saudis Outdo Their Zionist Masters In Terms Of Barbarity, Crime

The Houthi Anshar Allah movement's Ambassador to Iran, Ibrahim Al-Dailami, said in a March 10, 2023 show on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon) that the Saudis "outdo their Zionist masters in terms of barbarity and crime" despite claiming to be the leaders of the Arab and Muslim world. He said that there are "good" Arab Muslims in Saudi Arabia, but that the Saudi regime has launched an "aggression" against the Yemeni people on behalf of "the Zionist-American enterprise". He said that the Saudis complain that the Houthis get their weapons from Iran yet they themselves they get their weapons from the Zionists.

Ibrahim Al-Dailami: "A great harm has been done to Yemen, at the hands of its accursed [Saudi] neighbor, I am sad to say. But the truth is that the people of Najd, the Hejaz, and what we call Al-Mikhlaf Al-Suleiman [Jazan], at the southern part of that kingdom of evil, are Arab Muslim people who are very good in many ways. However, the regime that has taken dominance over that region, and is managing those enormous resources has launched an aggression against the Yemeni people, on behalf of the Zionist-American enterprise, and in order to accomplish its own domestic goals.


"In the negotiations we held with the Saudis a few years ago in Germany, they said: 'You get your weapons from Iran.' We said to them: 'Even if these weapons were on the moon, we would go there and get them.' Since the Saudis get their weapons from the Zionists, and provide work for all the weapons factories in Europe, Canada, Australia, and even Brazil..."

Interviewer: "And the weapons arsenals have opened up..."

Al-Dailami: "These factories are no longer capable of meeting the demand. We are not talking about 1,000 or 2,000 air raids. We are talking about over 500,000 air raids. If each air raid kills even just a single person, we are talking about 500,000 martyrs."

Interviewer: "Mr. Ambassador, do you agree with the people who say that what the Saud clan have done in Yemen equals, and even surpasses, in terms of barbarity what the Zionists are doing in Palestine, in the sense of the effectiveness of the bombing and destruction?"

Al-Dalami: "It is embarrassing to say they did this, even though they did. It is embarrassing to compare people who see themselves as our Arab and Muslim neighbors, and custodians of the Two Holy Mosques, and who present themselves as leaders of the Arab and Muslim world, and see that they outdo their Zionist masters in terms of barbarity and crime. They are all one and the same. One becomes speechless... Do you know what the biggest problem is? That the Saudis say they love us."
