Houthi scholar Sheikh Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi referred to the recent American designation of the Houthis as a terrorist organization in a Friday sermon aired on Al-Eman TV (Houthi-Yemen) on January 15, 2021. He said that the policies of the American government never change because it is controlled by the Zionist lobby, which "runs the show" in America, and the Americans don't have the power to get rid of it. He said: "We will trample the American government's declarations under our shoes." Al-Ubeidi elaborated that America has no right to accuse anyone of terrorism because it is "the biggest criminal in the world" and the "mother of all terrorism." He added that it is responsible for the creation of Al-Qaeda and ISIS, which are loyal to the American intelligence agency. Al-Ubeidi said that the U.S. does not have the right to designate an "oppressed group" as a terrorist group. He chanted: "Allah Akbar! Death to America! Death to Israel! Curse be upon the Jews! Victory to Islam!" For more about Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi, see MEMRI TV clips No. 8218, 7978, 7929, and 7897.
Sheikh Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi: "We do not trust the American government. The policies of the American government can never change, because it is led by the Zionist lobby. The capitalists who possess the money and the economy in the U.S. are Jews. They are the ones running the show in America. The Americans do not really have any authority, and they do not have the power to rid the U.S. of this lobby.
"We do not care about the statements of the Americans and the U.N. We will trample the American statements under our shoes. When have we ever cared about the resolution of the U.S. or the U.N. – be it the resolutions of the U.N., the Security Council, America, or others?
"Al-Qaeda and ISIS were created by the U.S. It is well known that all these groups answer to the American intelligence agencies.
"America is the biggest criminal there is. America does not have the right to accuse anyone of terrorism. America is the mother of all terrorism. It foments wars. It is the enemy of the nations. It does not have the right to designate and oppressed group that is being attacked as 'terrorists.'
"Allah Akbar! Death to America! Death to Israel! Curse be upon the Jews! Victory to Islam!"
