Missiles And Drones: A Close Look At Houthis’ New Weapons

Donate

On July 7, the Houthis unveiled new locally-manufactured missiles and drones in a small military exhibition attended by senior Yemeni officials.

Mahdi al-Mashat, the president of the Supreme Political Council, inaugurated the exhibition, which was named after his predecessor Saleh Ali al-Sammad who was assassinated by the Saudi-led coalition last year.

Other senior Yemeni officials attended the exhibition, including Yemen’s defense minister in the Houthis-affiliated government, Maj. Gen. Mohammed Nasser.

“We have reached an advanced stage in the field of military industry with Yemeni efforts and experiences and what’s yet to come will be greater and more painful [for the enemy],” Maj. Gen. Nasser told the al-Masirah TV.

During the exhibition, the Houthis showcased for the first time their Quds-1 cruise missile, Badir-F precision-guided tactical ballistic missile, as well as Samad-1, Samad-3 and Qasef-2K unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Some older weapons systems were also displayed.

Quds-1 Cruise Missile

The Martyr Saleh al-Samad Exhibition for Yemeni Military Industries provided us with the first ever look at the Quds-1 cruise missile, which was used by the Houthis in at least two successful attacks.

Previously it was believed that the missile was derivative from the Iranian Soumar cruise missile, a copy of the Soviet Kh-55 cruise missile. However, the new photos reveal that the Houthis’ missile has very unique characteristics, like the top-mounted turbojet engine and the static wings.

The missile’s engine appears to be identical to the TJ-100. The turbojet engine, that’s is produced by Czech’s PBS Velká Bíteš, is not used in any known missile. The Saudi-led coalition had showcased some the engine’s remains.

The Houthis have not revealed any of the missile’s specs, so far. However, it is believed to has a range of more than 150km. As for guidance, the missile likely relays on an Inertial navigation system (INS) aided by a satellite navigation system such as GPS or GLONASS.

Furthermore, the missile could be equipped with some sort of terrain contour matching (TERCOM) system. This would allow the missile to fly on low altitude and remain undetected by the enemy’s radars.

The Quds-1 cruise missile hit the arrival terminal in Abha International Airport on June 12 with high-accuracy. The missiles was also used in the June 19 attack on the al-Shuqaiq Water Desalination and Power Plant in southwestern Saudi Arabia.

Badir-F Precision-Guided Tactical Ballistic Missile

The Houthis revealed the Badir-F precision-guided tactical ballistic missile for the first time on April 16. Despite this, the missile was showcased in the Saleh al-Samad Exhibition for Yemeni Military Industries.

Photos of the missile show that it has a bigger diameter than its predecessors, the Badir-1 and the guided Badir-1P. The missile size is closer to that of the Soviet OTR-21 Tochka. However, its design lines are completely different.

When the missile was first revealed, the Houthis claimed that it is guided with a range of up to 160km and that it is armed with a heavy warhead equipped with a proximity fuze. A spokesman for the Houthis said back then that the missile would explode 20 meters above the center of the designated target and would scatter some 14,000 pieces of shrapnel in a circular area with a radius of 350 meters.

The missile photos confirm some of the Houthis claims. The missile is indeed equipped with moving fins, which confirms the presence of a gaudiness system. A laser proximity fuze can be also spotted in the missile’s nose.

Missiles of the Badir-F type have been used in several successful attacks on the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies since last April. The most recent attack targeted a military camp of Saudi-backed forces in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib.

Samad-1 UAV

The Houthis also displayed in the military exhibition a previously unknown reconnaissance UAV, the Samad-1.

The design of Samad-1 is identical to that of Hezbollah’s Mirsad UAV. The Lebanese group displayed a UAV of this type in the Museum for Resistance Tourism in southern Lebanon last year.

The Samad-1 appears to be equipped with an electro-optical reconnaissance system along with two data links, likely for control and live broadcast. The UAV is not believed to be capable of carrying weapons of any type. However, the Houthis can likely equip Samad-1 with a warhead and use it as a suicide UAV, similar to other types.

Samad-3 UAV

The third generation of the Samad UAV family was displayed for the first time. The Samad-3 design follow the same lines as the first generation. However, the UAV is equipped with what appears to be a conformal fuel tank (CFT). A unique feature that likely extends the UAV’s range in a significant way.

Unlike the first generation, Samad-3 is a suicide UAV designed to strike targets located deep inside Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emiratis (UAE).

On July 26, 2018, the Houthis targeted Abu Dhabi International Airport in the UAE with a Samad-3 UAV. The airport is located more than 1,500km away from the Houthi-held areas in western Yemen.

Qasef-2K UAV

The Saleh al-Samad Exhibition for Yemeni Military Industries provided us with the first look at the Qasef-2K UAV, which was introduced by the Houthis for the first time last January.

As many experts have expected, the Qasef-2K design is identical to that of the Qasef-1, which is a copy of the Iranian Ababil-2, according to a report of the Conflict Armament Research (CAR) group.

Unlike the first generation, the Qasef-2K is armed with a heavy high-explosive fragmentation [HE-FRAG] warhead that explodes 20meters over the target.

The Qasef-2K was used for the first time in an attack on a military parade of Saudi-backed forces in the southern district of al-Anad. The attack killed six personnel of Saudi-backed forces, including senior officers.

Since then, UAVs of the Qasef-2K have been used in dozens of attacks, mainly on facilities in southern Saudi Arabia.

Older weapon systems

Additionally, the Houthis showcased older weapons systems in the Saleh al-Samad Exhibition for Yemeni Military Industries.

The Scud-based Burkan-1 and Burkan-2H tactical ballistic missiles were displayed along with Badir-1 and Badir-1P artillery rocket. The Qahir-2M missile, which is based on the S-75 air defense missile, was also showcased.

Growing Capabilities

The advanced missiles and UAVs displayed by the Houthis in the Saleh al-Samad Exhibition for Yemeni Military Industries are a testimony of the Yemeni group’s ever growing offensive capabilities.

These new missiles and UAVs provide the Houthis with the ability to strike almost any target in Saudi Arabia or the UAE with a proper accuracy. A threat that the Saudi-led coalition has not taken any serious steps to address, so far.

            I saw in the definition that hasbarat is also a term for a professional jewish zion troller.

            Jewish Albert Pike – Agent of Rothschild in America – Main Architect of Civil War – Founder of KKK
            Albert Pike was born on December 29, 1809, in Boston, and was the oldest of six children born to the Jewish family of Benjamin and Sarah Chase. It is unknown why Albert Pike’s father later change his name from Chase to Pike, maybe to hide his Jewish identity. He studied at Harvard, and later served as a Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army and one of the major architect of the Civil War. After the Civil War, Pike was found guilty of treason and implicated in the assassination of President Lincoln, only to be pardoned by fellow FREEMASON President Andrew Johnson on April 22, 1866, who met with him the next day at the White House. On June 20, 1867, Scottish Rite officials conferred upon President Johnson the 32nd Freemasonry degrees, and he later went to Boston to dedicate a Masonic Temple. Albert Pike acting in behalf of the de Rothschild family, founded the KKK.
            ALBERT PIKE LETTER REVEALS ILLUMINATI PLAN FOR WORLD WAR 3
            Famous Freemason Albert Pike wrote a letter to Giuseppe Mazzini in 1871 that purports to outline the illuminati plan for World War 3. The letter to Mazzini was on display in the British Museum Library in London until 1977, before being inexplicably removed from public view. Bibliotecapleyades.net reports: Giuseppe Mazzini was an Italian revolutionary leader of the mid 1800s as well as the Director of the Illuminati. Albert Pike (historical Masonic figure) is a 33rd degree, Freemason Occultist Grand Master and creator of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Masonic Scottish Rite Order. Following are apparently extracts from the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations.
            “The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.” “The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.” “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion… We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view ( via boredombash.com ). This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

            “And what we are seeing is the structural crisis of the system. The structural crisis goes on for a long time. It really started more or less in the 1970s and will go on for another 20, 30, 40 years. It is not a crisis of a year or of a short moment, it is the major structural unfolding of a system. And we are in transition to another system and, in fact, the real political struggle that is going on in the world that most people refuse to recognize is not about capitalism – should we have or should we not have it – but about what should replace it.”

            Still ducking defining fascism and capitalism? Why? It’s because you don’t know.
            You say fascism growing but you all as well admitted you couldn’t define it. Like all the sheep in “Animal Farm” you just bleat what others tell you. Grow a spine, weakling.

            Then you quote a leftist Socialist like Immanuel Wallerstein who of course, makes the same predictions as any other communist or socialist. This is why you hate Trump. He messed up the communist plan. It through a monkey wrench thru Wallerstein philosophical window and whacked the One World Globalists in the head. Hillary is still walking around dazed.

            You will now rant and rave about something else you clipped and pasted.
            Be ugly and not debate Wallerstein because you really don’t know his World Systems Theory, So you will be unable to. Just like you didn’t know the definitions of Fascism and Capitalism.

            Here are choice bit I gleaned from your comments:
            .
            .You said,” support Russia…the Syrian Peoples…The Palestinians…the Iranians…the Afghani Peoples & the Iraqi Peoples…they have suffered a lot the past couple of Decades…thanks to the Americans…Millions of innocent people Exterminated…Gold & Oil was Stolen”..

            Plus this bit of hate, you said,” I still have Great TRUST in Russia & Putin…I consider them me brothers…Russian Soldiers are doin’ a good job…with Honour & Dignity…
            Clearly you hate America. Or just so envious you can’t stand it. LOL

            You suffer from white guilt, chump. You said,”..I am a European Citizen and just as guilty as an American Citizen” Present day Americans are guilty of nothing.
            Taking the blame for something you are not responsible for because of your skin color. That is the most egregious self – loathing, I have ever seen, how perverted is auto-racism. smh That is really twisted. See a doctor (the head kind) sicko.

            Plus you hate Jews. Here is a disgusting anti-semitic trope. You said,”The “Jews” always took “their” money with them when they had sucked their host Bone Dry or simply had to Flee…”
            or this gem:.I know my Enemy are the Bloodsucking Khazarian Mafia & AngloZioNazi Elites. Ooooh. Nasty!

            But this tops it, Yikes!
            Jews is a bit generalizing…I personally prefer: Parasitic-Antisemitic-Khazarian-Supremacist-Bolshevik-AshkeZioNazis…which is a bit more specific… Put on those Nazi boots Hasbara Hunter!!!

            I understand that being american, you likely drink fluoride and suffered a terrible education. But listen up dimwit, the onus is on you to prove the existence of god or the devil. An intelligent man does not ask another man to prove a negative. Unless he is a moron, giggling at his own moronic witlessness.

            You religious nutbars have had a long time to prove out god, and your god has apparently had even longer to come out of the closet.. Not a peep. Gee, wonder why.

          • Uppity White Man

            You said….There is no devil dimwit,. just like there is no god.” It is your premise that there is no God. Not mine. So the onus on me is not to prove your premise.
            I am simply asking for you to prove your premise.

            I realize at your level of cognition that you have no understanding of religion or of science, Told ya you were dumb.

            The question of God and/or the cannot be answered by empirical science. There is no way to observe or experiment which is a requirement of the scientific method. It simply cannot be asked scientifically. Religious people don’t scientifically “know: God. They “know” God, thru Faith, and is self evident.

            It’s not acceptable to empirical science, but because science is too limited. Empirical science limited to observation and experimentation. Science is certainly not not the only form of knowledge. Only a fool that believes in Scientific Omniscience, would believe that.

            Btw, God shows his evidence all the time. You just have to be watching.
            You are so fun to watch stomping around in your defeat and resentmentment. Sucks to be you.

          You need to speak english. I can’t tell if you are a Muzzie or a neo Nazi, not that there is much difference. I never one that wasn’t trash.

          You both collaborated together to wipe the Jews from the earth. Then the jews and Christians exterminated the Nazis and divided up Muzzie lands. I guess Allah screwed you Muslims pretty good, chumps.

          I am a Irish Catholic and don’t really like a lot of Jewish folk, they do tend to be awfully clannish and stiff necked. They are a lot like the Muzzies in temperment.
          If America nuked the entire Middle East into black obsidian. I couldn’t be happier.

            I am of Irish Catholic heritage that’s all. I think this Muzzie nut thought I was spreading Jew propaganda or something like that.

            What I am a No Hyphen American a citizen of the greatest, most powerful Nation in the history of the planet.
            When asked the race question on a government form, I write American. No other race counts.
            The church got its ass kicked because it acted against the rules of God. That’s what happens when you piss off God.

            Saladin, you are going back a thousand years to find someone who whipped the Christian Crusaders. Those are European people and besides the Jews own the land Saladin defended.

            A tiny country of Israel is more powerful than all the Muslims. They have whipped their asses repeatedly and are a wealthy industrious people. The Muzzies live in ignorant desolate poverty, only their anger and hate to support them.Just like the Devil likes people, poor, ignorant,miserable with no future.

            Just guessing, but the Jews and Christian God sure seems more powerful than your Satan/Allah. But, whatever.

          • Pork

            1st, American is not a race, it’s a nationality, you in-bread white trash hillbilly.
            2nd, Judaism is also not a race, it’s a religion.
            3rd, Judaism, Christianity and Islam all came from Semitic Arabs.
            4th, I suggest you stop watching Fox news . I can guarantee you’re not 100% ” white “, especially being ” American “.
            And last, I’m an American Palestinian with no religious affiliations. And at most you’ve proven your ignorance only. Keep up the white power hype, you’re a minority and your type is quickly dieing or inbreeding, both of which is counter-productive to your cause.

          • Uppity White Man

            American-Palestinian.hahaha So you decided suddenly to reverse the order that put the adjective first in the English language. You are no longer a Palestinian-American, But rather, an American Palestinian with no hyphen.Hahaha Who do you think you are kidding? An uneducated Palestinian? You big phony.

            BTW what country are you from, Palestine.? There is no country called Palestine. Just a dirty place in the Levant where primitive backward Muslim trash go when other Arab countries flush their toilets of filth. Even other Arabs don’t want you Hahaha. Quite literally you are a nobody from nowhere. Poor you.Hahaha

            Let me deal with your profound ignorance,
            First Americans are a race as defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary. As are Jews, you ignoramus.

            race noun (2)
            Definition of race (Entry 3 of 3)
            1 : a breeding stock of animals
            2a : a family, tribe, people, or nation belonging to the same stock
            b : a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics

            Look stuff up before running you ignorant mouth.

            “In the racialist classifications of Carleton S. Coon, the Semitic peoples were considered to be members of the Caucasian race…” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic_people
            Semites come from the caucasian white race and are caucasians.
            You’re the pot calling the kettle black.

            So apparently according to racists like you, Semites are white. So I guess that makes you… how did you say it? ” … in-bread white trash hillbilly.” If the shoe fits …wear it! Porky. Hahaha
            You should really not call people smarter than you names. That’s why easily intimidated people like you get triggered when I show you what an Uppity White Man really looks like. Hahaha

            How do I know you are a racist? You keep bringing up the tired old meme of calling people you perceive to be white, “white supremacists” even though you are white.
            YOU bring up whiteness and supremacy, I didn’t. You are he racist. not I. Ever been called an Uncle Tom you big dummy? smh

          • Pork

            Since the 17th century race has been defined by physical aspects. The fact that you’re too stùpid to know that, and rely on Google to back up your inept knowledge becomes more transparent with every word you utter.
            It’s obvious you’re a troll, constantly looking to stir shit up.
            I suggest you crawl back into your trailer, pop open another Coors and watch anything but Fox.
            You first proudly claimed being Irish Catholic…then not. You then claimed being of American race, which is a nationality defined by 6 different races…Google can help some attain knowledge but it doesn’t fix stupid, of which you are, clearly.
            Get an ” edumacation “, BOY.

          • Uppity White Man

            Yes, you certainly have all the signs of the Dunning–Kruger effect. It is a bias where people of low ability suffer from illusion of superiority. Making the mistake of thinking they are smarter than they are.

            I agree four centuries ago race was decided by physical aspects, such as skin color. Skin color remains main trait Westerners use to place people into racial groups. These people are referred to as racists.

            The problem is someone of African descent may be the same skin shade as someone of Asian descent. Someone of Asian descent may be the same shade as someone of European descent. Where does one race end and another begin? What about mulattos like Obama?How does science determine he black or white?”
            BTW, the world is not flat. Dope.
            Science has advanced in 400 years. smh

            Why is grouping people by race difficult? The ancient concept of race says that more genetic variation exists interracially than intra-racially when the opposite is true. Only about 10 percent of variation in humans exists between the so-called races.

            Thanks to science progress, scientists can now say definitively that people that use physical characteristic to determine race are just plain wrong.
            Race is fluid and thus difficult to pinpoint scientifically. “Race is a concept of human minds, not of nature,” There is no genetic marker for race”.
            ***
            Concerning my heritage, I used a colloquial method of stating my heritage. That you thought I meant literally. That was your mistake. But I clarified my meaning, and you still didn’t get it. Wow!
            I realize like many IQ deficient individuals, you lack the cognitive ability to recognise analogy and metaphor.
            Life is hard – harder if you’re stupid.
            Sucks to be you.

            I claimed to be of the American race. I proved i that factt o any reasonable person that the definition of race (with link) could be Americans who, as a “people, or nation belonging to the same stock or a a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics.
            Yet you fall back to a outdated racist definition of race that has been proven to be wrong. At first, I thought you were ignorant, that is, lacking knowledge, but now, I suspect you are stupid, which is the inability to learn.

            I don’t drink but and I watch and read widely. FOX has proven to be the most accurate Channel new station. They were exactly correct on the Trump winning the election and they have correct about the Mueller investigation. They have been correct time after time. Two reporters that are FOX contributors have uncovered the FBI and DOC corruption and reported on it FOX.
            In fact we know the leftist press cooperated in the Russian Hoax and have had to retract story after story. One New York times reporter, Glenn Thrush, emailed Podesta, Hillary’s campaign manager, that he had,”No worries, Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to the Clinton campaign chairman in an April 2015 email.

            How do I know how accurate they are? Because I do watch the other side. Every morning I read things like HuffPo, Mother Jones, New York Time. The Hill, the Wash Post and theGuardian to see the propaganda line of the day.
            Then I look at conservative stuff like the Thinker, Epoch Times, the Federalist, Washington Time, Reason and Newsbusters.

            I also check out CNN and MSNBC and I watch Morning Joe and the alphabet stations Sunday shows
            They are all propaganda machines. You can tell by their coordination. It will be the same words on the same subject over and over so it enters your mind without thinking.

            Remember the manufactured crisis on the border. that turned out to be real or the how many times have they crowed that this is what is going to bring Trump down (he’s getting stronger and stronger)
            The MSM said over and over, that he had Alzheimer’s disease, then he took a cognitive test and aced it , which none of the reporters could do. It’s pure propaganda and making people who watch it sound brainwashed and ignorant. You are prime example.

            BTW, if you think I’m a troll, why are you bothering me??

          • Pork

            Thank you for rambling on and on only to prove my point. The definition of race is fluid, proving only one thing, that ” race “doesn’t exist. The fact that you tried, unsuccesfully, to morph nationality into a definition of “race “, only proves my point, that at first you tried to define yourself as Irish Catholic, and took immense pride in doing so. This exhibit is mainly portrayed by ” white anlgo-Americans “, the usual white trash, ignorant racists of the ” American ” race. ( the fact that you use Google to ascribe to fluid definitions and use of such to prove argument goes to show you have no critical thought process. )
            Again, the fact that you know how to Google means nothing. And your assumption that I’m a liberal because my accusation of you being a Fox news supporter ( of which you now admit ) shows your ego and white pride are manipulated by your emotional state. A true sign of low IQ I may add.
            I’ll go ahead and end this argument, simply for one main reason. You’re a liar and argue for arguments sake, another sign of a disturbed individual with low IQ. Although I could continue and pick apart your assumptions and argument word for word, I believe it would be beating my head against a wall.
            See you on the flip side, dumb ass. Lmfao

            P.S. try not to publicly show your insecurity and low self-esteem. Trying to prove you have knowledge by stating what you read…Laughable! Start from the beginning, to the tune of, Twinkle twinkle little star… A B C D E F G, So on and so forth. Lol

            Oh ya, we all crave to be american, socipathic, poverty stricken, fluoridated stupid halfwits :P

            “Homelessness
            There are 750,000 Americans who are homeless on any given night, with one in five of them considered chronically homeless. The ranks of the sheltered homeless include disproportionate numbers of males, blacks, middle-aged people (i.e., ages 31-50), veterans, and disabled.

            Child Poverty
            In the United States, 21 percent of all children are in poverty, a poverty rate higher than what prevails in virtually all other rich nations.

            Health Insurance
            In 2007, 8.1 million children under 18 years old were without health insurance. Children in poverty and Hispanic children were more likely to be uninsured.

            One-quarter of American workers make less than $10 per hour. That creates an income below the federal poverty level. These are the people who wait on you every day. They include cashiers, fast food workers, and nurse’s aides. Or maybe they are you.

            The rich got richer through the recovery from the 2008 financial crisis. In 2012, the top 10 percent of earners took home 50 percent of all income. That’s the highest percentage in the last 100 years. The top 1 percent took home 20 percent of the income, according to a study by economists Emmanuel Saez and Thomas Piketty.

            By 2015, America’s top 10 percent already averaged more than nine times as much income as the bottom 90 percent. And Americans in the top 1 percent averaged over 40 times more income than the bottom 90 percent. “

        • Uppity White Man

          No, only one is a really fucked up religion. Islam. It is is a supremacist ideology with the goal of a worldwide Caliphate and all other religions and people must be subservient or die. Islam is Religious Fascism.
          That is why Hitler had Arab troops and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem helped form the Arab Legion. Germans were famous Imperialists and Hitler the most famous mass murder. But over the centuries the prize goes to the Muslims.

          “The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely the English, the Jews and the Communists. Therefore they were prepared to cooperate with Germany … and stood ready to participate in the war, not only negatively…but also positively by the formation of an Arab Legion.”

          On the other hand the Christian moral structure has built the greatest, most tolerant and most respected country in the history of the earth.

          Religion is the collected wisdom of a culture ( in secular anthropological terms) and is a cultures framework for civilized behavior.

          Despite our many faults in America, million upon millions of people have risked death to cross our borders. They have walked thousands of miles in dangerous terrain, crossed shark infested waters on small boats and even inner tubes.Risking certain death if caught.

          What mass murder has American had? The native aborigies that lived here, That was not genocide that was a 400 year war of conquest. The only mass dying came from old world diseases that
          Religion is the bond that holds America and any nation together.Their never has been a great country without Great religion. Only a, atheistic fool would think so.

          Our problem is not consumption and usury(as defined in this sentence).
          A healthy rate of return on a person’s money he rents out, is the only way business works. Many fools misuse it, that is why they are poor, debt is just a tool. Debt can make you a lot of money. It certainly has me.

          Nor are humans the problem we are as nature intended us. Nothing more.
          The environmentalists is just a socialist/ communist power grab. Its politics, nothing more.

      So if you want to understand this, build lets say a chair.
      That’s proven design, there you can’t do anything wrong, but you will understand, where the differences between your chair and other chairs are, if you ever have build even one.
      And then, if you as a canadian are able to build build a chair, then we can go on to next level and talk about things, that are only a little more complex then a chair.

      Iranian, Russian, Chinese , North Korean, Venezuelan, does it matter ? What matters its these weapons are changing the very dynamic of this protracted conflict.

      The Saudi’s are now terrified, and the U.S. is trying all its best to come up with viable ‘ real ‘ countermeasures, not the incredibly inept Patriot’s.

      This is a war that will be a victory for the Axis of Resistance. Again, its the quality of the fighters, their determination and skills that will determine this war. And no one beats the Yemenis at their war in their backyard.

    • occupybacon

      Even if they are made in Iran or Russia, it still means they possess the intelligence to bypass all the Saudi, NATO and Israeli blockades and secret services, to get them there, which is a greater acquirement than building those drones.

  • grumpy_carpenter

    The semi automatic pistol was invented in the 1980’s and today you can download a file and print on in your basement. In the 1960’s 70 years after it’s invention just about every nation on earth was able to produce AK-47’s.

    Both Cruise missiles and ballistic missiles were first successfully used in warfare in 1945 so it only makes sense that any nation on earth can build missiles. people are smart and resourceful. The Houtis and Yemeni’s don’t have MIC lobbyists and a procurement system to deal with. They just find a friend who gives them a set of drawings then search the internet for component vendors willing to sell to them. ISIS and Al Queda were making homemade rockets and drones in Syria

    • Hisham Saber

      Ground to ground ballistic missiles of various degrees, types and range will , along with drones, play a crucial part in the axis of resistance, Iran, IRGC especially, Syrian Arab Army and auxiliaries, Iraqi PMU’s, essentially Iraq’s military whom are strongly dependent on, and loyal to Iran, Hezbollah, and all the rest of the Shia crescent of a pool of 400 million people, along with the Arab and Assyrian tribes of Syria and Iraq, vs. The U.S., Israel, the Brits , the French, along with an assortment of Arab Gulf Monarchies that will collapse right from the get -go-, from a sustained and redundant ballistic missile bombardment that tears them apart at the fragile seams.

      Long gone will be the days of civilian flights, or maritime traffic in case of an attack on Iran, its national interests or allies. Israel, which every square meter/foot if is mapped out for ballistic missile bombardment in redundancy as well, will be reduced to a pile of ruble. The effects will be instantaneous. Within minutes of an attck on Iran, Israel should expect all hell to come its way. And the Iron Dome will be proved to be useless.

      • RichardD

        From a US military war college study:

        “The Israelis assembled 13 twenty-kiloton atomic bombs. … The Jericho missiles at Hirbat Zachariah and the nuclear strike F-4s at Tel Nof were armed and prepared for action against Syrian and Egyptian targets”

        – ISRAEL’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS –

        https://fas.org/nuke/guide/israel/nuke/farr.htm

        1 kiloton equals 1,000 tons of TNT. 1 Israeli fission device from 50 years ago, they now have fusion devices measured in megatons. Equals 1,000 to 2,000 Iranian missiles with 1,000 to 2,000 pound warheads today. Israels’s neighbors aren’t going to get in a war with Israel that is going to result in them getting nuked.

        Iran may get in a conventional exchange with Israel. but they’l back off before it reaches the threshold where Israel would use nukes. The same goes for the rest of Israel’s neighbors. The Hezbollah war in 06 was pushing back an invasion of Lebanon, not an invasion of Israel. There’s a big difference.

        If they’re threatened with being overrun by non nuclear armed invaders. They’re going to kill as many of them as necessary to push back an invasion. None of Israel’s neighbors are going to host an invasion for that reason. Any nation that hits Israel with enough conventional missile strikes to threaten Israel’s existence, like Iran, is going to nuked into oblivion to the extent necessary to stop the attack.

        • Hisham Saber

          You are mistaken in strategic terms. Israel cannot use nukes, even if faced with existential treats. Over run or not. Israel’s neighbors, whom number in the hundreds of millions will eventually overcome Israel, her dynamic shape shifting place in the Middle East.

          Israel may have first and indeed second nuclear strike capability, by way of sub launched Popeye missiles, around 5 megatons each, but what do you think the reaction would be. Again, Israel’s Achilles heel is its abhorrent lack of strategic depth. It has none to speak of. Israel cannot go on a major offensive action/s in the near region, because the IDF are as useless as tits on a bull. They are proved themselves over and over they are very inept at taking, holding land, or mounting a sustained offensive. 2006 was a prime example, where 76,000 IDF troops, and two armored battalions were effectively routed by 4500 Hezbollah ‘ regulars ‘ . Hezbollah had its Elite brigades, Special Forces and Commandos stationed just north of the Litani Line. They saw no action, but if they were on the border, the war would have easily spilt into Israel proper, deep too. With the U.S. , British and France having tyo scramble to extradite Israel from the lions teeth.

          • RichardD

            Israel can use nukes and will use them. Rather than be overrun or annihilated.

            None of Israel’s neighbors on Israel’s borders have nukes. None of them will host an invasion force. Because they know that they’ll get nuked.

            To the best of my knowledge none of your Iran suppositions in terms of hardware are supported by US or anybody else’s intelligence assessments. Mine are.

            If you can provide nuclear assessments of comparable quality to what I’ve provided of Israel’s nuclear capability, or something similar supporting your assessment of Iran’s nuclear capability. I’d be happy to take a look at it.

            Even if Iran goes nuclear. MAD would still be a major factor. It doesn’t prevent an Israeli nuclear first strike. But it would be clear to the Iranians that if they press Israel hard enough conventionally. It will precipitate a first strike. And if Iran has crossed the nuclear weapons threshold. An Israeli first strike will be far worse than a first strike against a conventionally armed Iran.

            Knowing that a first strike will result in a return nuclear strike. Israel won’t hold back, the first strike will be a knockout blow with enough destruction wrought on Iran. That it will be to high of a price for Iran to pay for destroying Israel in return.

            So whether Iran is nuclear armed or not. They’re unlikely to press Israel hard enough to get hit with a nuclear first strike. And none of Israel’s bordering neighbors are either for the same reasons.

            I don’t know the exact nature of Israel’s nuclear arsenal. But I’m assuming that it includes tactical nukes as a force multiplier. So whatever the IDF’s short comings may be. Tactical nukes would be used to close the gap on an as needed basis.

          • Matt Lazarus

            Real question, in the event of war between Israel and Iran, is level of casualties Israelis are prepared to accept in their efforts to “neutralize” Iran. Recent history suggests that Israelis would not accept casualties that go beyond a handful–let us say, a few dozen–military personnel. This, I think, is the main brake on Israel’s desire and any plans it has been making to annihilate Iran.

          • RichardD

            Israel knows that any sub nuclear conflict with Iran is a no win situation. Which is why they’ve never hit Iran. And are unlikely to initiate hostilities in a sub nuclear environment. The ayatollah say that if the domestic ban on nukes is withdrawn and Iran pursues them. That there’s nothing that the US can do. Short of war, the US has pretty much done all that it can. And so has Israel. Additional action could be taken at the UN. But what it would consist of beyond N. Korean style sanctions is questionable.

          • Pork

            There are many other offensive, out of the box, strategies of which neither of you here mention. These strategies will come into play long before either side decides to go “MAD”.
            I’ll mention only one. A physical and economic choke hold on secondary soft targets which target the civilian population…I’ll leave the details out. Use your imagination.
            Keep one thing in mind, Iran has yet to use offensive strategy and tactics. Physical wars are in the past. New Era of waging war has bypassed sanctions, embargoes and blockades, Iran has proven as such…soft secondary targets are plentiful in the west making the nuclear option unnecessary. Causing civilian strife to soft infrastructure targets will manipulate an effect on Western economies that will take decades to overcome. The plans exist and will be implemented to coincide with any physical waged war targeting Iran.

            The way out has been previously mentioned. Implementation of international law including right of return…Israel will cease to exist one way or another. By peaceful means, or if they choose, otherwise.

          • RichardD

            Much of what you describe has been part of the friction between nations and groups throughout human history. I’ve outlined what I think needs to be done to resolve the Israel problem in an implementable plan on this thread and elsewhere. If you have one, I’d be interested in hearing it.

          • Pork

            When it comes down to it, in all fairness and logic, implementation of international law and right of return. Crimes against humanity and without amnesty. Criminals must be brought to justice. And it must not be allowed to go in the way of how it played out in South Africa. The criminals would love nothing more than to draw this out for decades as it did in South Africa. Thereby giving time to form more schemes. Israel is at present working towards a segregated society ( 2nd and 3rd class citizens ) to slow down the inevitable, using BDS to form new narratives and buying time to implement laws in the form of being anti – anti-semitic in nature. If this course of action continues the US will find itself, eventually, without allies.
            There is no out for israel. There will never be a majority, Jew-only nation, in the midst of centuries old Islamic nations. There only option is to exist as a minority, with equal rights, amongst the Palestinians. The sooner this is recognised the better. The colonial project has run its course…the monarchies are doomed as well. It’s a matter of when, not if.

          • RichardD

            I hear this type of thing a lot, and so do the Israelis, who laugh at it. Because they’ve been hearing it for 70 years, and know that it’s wishful thinking, not a plan. Now if you fleshed out your wish list of how you think that the grand sweep of history is going to magically implement your wish list. By projecting exactly who is going to do what. Then you’d have a plan. Until that happens, you’re just one more dreamer expecting that divine providence is going to solve all of your problems for you. History doesn’t work that way. And love em or hate em. Zionists are doers not dreamers.

          • Pork

            My reply to you is the only option the ” Jewish nation “/ zionism has in order to safeguard it’s future. Zionists are not doers, they’re thieves. Building on concepts and inventions of others. This is a proven historical fact. I suggest you not cross zionists with jews.
            It’s also proven time and again that the colonial project of western powers have temporarely overtaken the semitic lands only to be forced out time and again.
            Sharing with you strategy and tactics will not happen. I made that clear in my first post to you…also told you to use your imagination. I suspect your double talk is proof of your ego, as with all zionists, the Achilles heal, if you will.
            The true fact of the matter is that 70 years is a drop in the bucket. I am more than confident that US hegemony in the M E is in its death throws unless it changes course and accepts the inevitable. If not, it’s economy will falter and allow a more rapid ascension of other world powers…I suspect the dual citizens will not allow the US to change course thereby taking with them not only israel but the US economic super power status.
            Imo, the Chinese and Russians would actually like to see the US flourish, without the dual citizens, chicken hawks at the helm. That’s a course of action that only can be taken by its own citizenry. Which imo, has a bleak outlook.
            Of course there are no guarantees in life. The situation is fluid and not one person here has enough info to know the future. Seems you think you have a crystal ball…good luck with that.

          • RichardD

            Ok, just as I thought, you have no plan. Just because something happened a certain way in the past is no guarantee that things will happen a certain way in the future. Your recipe for Israel’s security by allowing displaced Palestinians back to Israel is laughable. The first thing that they’d do is get rid of Israel. That’s why they were kicked out in the first place. So that the Jews could have a numerical majority in an area of Palestine to use “democracy” for further expansion.

            I’m not a Zionist, I’m a truther, and I don’t engage in double speak. If you disagree then copy and paste what I’ve written and explain how it makes me a Zionist engaged in double speak.

            As far as Zionists and Jews being different groups of people. That’s way off:

            “94% say that if Jewish state “no longer existed tomorrow,” it would be a “tragedy.””

          • Pork

            1st, I made no mention of Israel’s security, you falter. The word used, and again I’m repeating myself to you due to your lack of simple reading comprehension, was safeguard. Allow me to elaborate. Meaning Jews remaining and having equal rights in Palestine. Zionism is dead. The belief in a nation for jews only, especially in centuries old Islamic nation, is dead. But unlike the racists of Europe, they will remain welcome and in peace in the future Palestine.
            2nd, and again I repeat myself. Sharing a ” plan ” with the likes of you or any other person here for that matter will never happen. The reasons are obvious, certainly you’re intelligent enough to comprehend…?
            3rd, your take on historical fact is skewed and opinion based. Within such venues as this, it reeks, at the very least, of support for zionism…just a hunch.
            4th, quoting any media from israel…lmfao. Of course “zionist Jews” support israel. Or is this a bad joke??

          • RichardD

            Israel is the Jewish nation using the Jew’s and pretty much anyone else’s definition. So I’m beginning to question if you’re even sane enough to conduct a rational debate with.

            The topic is Jews, quoting them doesn’t make me a Zionist or engaged in double speak.

            Saying that what’s happened in the past doesn’t guarantee what’s going to happen in the future is a simple truism, there’s nothing skewed or opinion based about it.

            Unlike me, you don’t have a plan, I get it. Because you’re evidently not smart enough or are to lazy to figure one out.

            Calling the Jews thieves doesn’t change the fact that they have a plan and are doers who are implementing it. And do nothing stupid people like you who don’t have one to stop them is why they’re getting away with it.

          • S Melanson

            Your arguments are closer to the truth then other comments here. You talk of the Samson Option and it is real. One comment spoke of lack of strategic depth, and this is true and is the basis for occupation to create some nominal depth and more defensible perimeter using terrain (Golan) and rivers (Jordan River), following Ben Gurion Doctrine of national security first.

            Israel will go nuclear if facing defeat. Golan now considered part of Israel and Israel will go nuclear rather than give it up. – IDF planners view the Golan as indispensable to Israel’s security.

            If Israel had returned the Golan after the 1967 war, the Syrian 4th armoured division would have rolled into Tel Aviv – the 4th armoured broke through IDF defences and could have taken Tel Aviv if not for standing orders to take and hold positions according to set timetable. Israel was lucky. Without the Golan for strategic depth, Tel Aviv would have been overrun. IDF leaders know this.

            So if the Golan is tied to the viability of Israel, given the stated intentions to take beck the Golan, should we be unconcerned, on the assumption ‘Nah, it will never happen’?

          • RichardD

            The baby rapers don’t need the Golan to secure Israel. I doubt that Israel will use nukes to hold the Golan or the West Bank. 2 kiloton 155mm atomic shells will stop any conventional drive on Tel Aviv. Which is why the Arabs are unlikely to do it. You’re fighting yesterdays wars with yesterdays weapons. I’m dealing with the tactical realities on today’s battlefield.

          • S Melanson

            I actually agree with you that use of nukes will deter attack but Assad, Hezbollah have been explicit they will liberate the Golan. By the way, you say you doubt Israel would use nukes to defend Golan. If the Arabs believe as you do, then there will not be, as you claim, a deterrent to liberating Golan because the deterrent is not credible if unwilling to use them.

            Russian officials have commented as well. An interview with the Russian ambassador to Lebanon made it clear a year ago that the Golan must be returned, otherwise there will be no peace – his words. This I have detailed in prior comments with links. I will post the links shortly.

            Also, Russian command and control is integrated with Syrian air defence systems that are reserved for Russian military only – that is until now. Why the exception for Syria? One thing it does do is if Syria goes to war with Israel over the Golan, and they have said they would if diplomacy fails, it would pull Russia into it by default, at least in my view.

            Now that Golan is annexed and recognized by US, diplomacy is remote hope. So as I said, will words be matched by deeds? Also, if tac nukes are actually used by Israel on attacking forces, all hell will break loose. Your assumption is it will not happen. I am not so sure.

          • RichardD

            Israel has a conventional deterrent to liberating the Golan. In 73 they were prepared to use nukes to push back a conventional invasion of Israel. They didn’t use them when Syria was already in the Golan. So if history is any precedent, they won’t use them if Syria retakes the Golan by conventional force again and holds it this time. But doesn’t cross into Israel or attack it beyond the necessities of liberating the Golan. Which gives Israel no justification for using nukes. If you have Israeli nuclear doctrine stating otherwise. Please post the relevant excerpts.

            The Golan needs to be liberated in conjunction with the West Bank. So that Israel is fighting a conventional 2 front war like in 73. Which this time they will lose without direct US intervention. And it needs to include a nuclear guarantor. With Russia probably being the only realistic option. To insure that Israel doesn’t resort to nukes in the Golan and West Bank. And to deter US entry into the war on Israel’s side.

            Where things go from there is an open question. My preference would be the implementation of the return of displaced persons to Israel and a referendum voting Israel out of existence and replacing it with a unified Palestine at the UN.

        • Matt Lazarus

          Trump, Netanyahu, and much of mainstream American press are presenting a war with Iran as a distinct possibility. Some media sites, like this one, state that Israel, together with the US, is actually preparing to go to war against Iran.

          Presumably, this would be a “preemptive” war waged in order to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

          There can be no doubt that Israel, together with the US, could inflict vast damage on Iran. So, it is unlikely Iran would initiate a war that targeted Israel or, for that matter, US bases, US naval vessels, and US troops currently operating in the Middle East, or bases of US military allies, like Saudi Arabia

          If, however, Israel and/or the US and/or Saudi Arabia initiate a war against Iran, there can be little doubt the Iranians would retaliate. This would involved large scale missile attacks on US military facilities in the Middle East and US naval vessels in the Persian Gulf, on Israeli military bases and, possibly, Israeli towns and cities, as well as Saudi bases and, possibly, Saudi oil production facilities.

          The question for the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia is whether they would be prepared to tolerate the amount of destruction and level of casualties they would suffer if they were to go ahead with a “first strike” against Iran. I believe the Saudi leadership would be largely indifferent to level of casualties among Saudi civilians. On other hand, I believe the US military would want to avoid any conflict that results in destruction of US naval vessels or in large number of casualties. I believe, too, Israelis would also want to avoid any conflict which would result in large number of Israeli casualties.

          • RichardD

            If it was just military losses, which are bad enough. The US, Israel and Britain might be willing to attack Iran. But when you add in the economic collapse and oil shortage issues. And the possibility of drawing the SCO into the conflict on Iran’s side if the economic collapse, oil shortages and resulting famine become bad enough. That decreases the possibility of military escalation.

            Sure, a terrorist nuclear strike is the elephant in the room. So far it hasn’t happened. And I’m not advocating it. But Israel is far from alone with having to deal with that contingent liability. So far it’s a red line that there’s been sufficient intel cooperation globally to prevent it. At least as far as a nuke of any significant size.

            No I don’t think that murdering them is necessary. Outlawing Judaism as a criminal organization and closing the synagogues and yeshivas should be sufficient.

          • jerry

            good to see you don’t believe there is anything intrinsically negative in the Jewish DNA or Jewish character. Your other comments suggested otherwise.

            But your clarification is also ludicrous. You think that there are some teachings going on at Friday night services, or during Bar Mitzvah studies that cause all the wars and troubles in the world.

            You should come to some services and check out your theory.

          • RichardD

            You should read the Talmud. And I think that the Jewish character is very flawed. This doesn’t mean that all Jews are intrinsically evil. The drop out rate is high. And even the brainwashed cult members like you evidently are. Have degrees to which they buy into or reject the narrative.

            Christ’s suggestion of to judge a tree by it’s fruit makes a lot of sense to me. And Judaism is obviously rotten.

            in the Jewish DNA

            Could you elaborate on this? Are we talking about:

            • the descendants of “Abraham” — a Mesopotamian said to be born in circa 2500 BCE in Ur, Chaldea when “Chaldea” is an anachronistic geographic term for southern Mesopotamia used only the late 1st millennium BCE and not during “Abraham”’s putative era, the Middle Bronze Age (early 2nd millennium BCE)?

            • the descendants of “Kind David”, “Solomon” et al. — for whom not a single shred of evidence outside the (mythical) Bible exists – and that in ancient records and/or archeology?

            • or the descendants of the earliest adherents to Pharisaism — the root of Judaism?

            ”Among the innumerable misfortunes which have befallen… the most fatal in its consequences is the name Judaism… neither in biblical nor post-biblical, neither in Talmudic nor in much later times, is the term Judaism ever heard…”

            Rabbi Adolph Moses in collaboration with Rabbi H.G. Enlow, “Yahvism and Other Discourses”

            ”Pharisaism became Talmudism, Talmudism became Medieval Rabbinism, and Medieval Rabbinism became Modern Rabbinism. But throughout these changes in name . . . the spirit of the ancient Pharisees survives, unaltered . . . From Palestine to Babylonia; from Babylonia to North Africa, Italy, Spain, France and Germany; from these to Poland, Russia, and eastern Europe generally, ancient Pharisaism has wandered . . . demonstrates the enduring importance which attaches to Pharisaism as a religious movement.”

            Rabbi Louis Finkelstein, “The Pharisees, The Sociological Background of Their Faith

          • jerry

            sure I will elaborate.

            I was speaking to a racist bigot, who believes that Jews are somehow responsible for just about all things negative in the world. So – I assumed he thought there was something in their blood or genetics that made them both so very powerful and so very evil.

            that’s why I thought his suggestion of outlawing Judaism didn’t go far enough to fit his ideology. Because it would not address the evil powers I thought he believed Jews have.

            But he clarified that banning the religion itself would somehow end the evil doings, so my presumption of his belief about the character of Jewish people turned out to be wrong.

            He thinks instead that the teachings in the synagogues are causing people to gain these powers and bad intentions, so is content in trying to shut them down in that fashion.

            As for myself, of course, there is nothing at all problematic in any way about any Jewish genetics, character traits or intentions.

          • Omega

            I don’t know if you honestly misunderstood me or purposely diverted; but that is not what I asked you. If you go back and read my previous comment again, I quoted you (“in the Jewish DNA”). That is what I asked clarification for.

          • jerry

            You asked me what I was talking about. So that’s what I answered.

            But I also answered you on the DNA question — there is zero problematic with anything to do with Jewish DNA, genealogy, character etc. So none of the issues you raised had anything to do with what I was saying to the racist, and are also not relevant to me. No matter how you trace genealogy etc — it doesn’t change that the end result we have today is just fine and free of any issues of concern.

            As I suspected; you diverted then and divert more now. I can only deduce that you are unable to answer my question. Regardless, my question was rhetorical: there is no such thing as “Jewish DNA”.

          • jerry

            haha. I’m not diverting. You are missing the point that it was the racist I was speaking to who i thought held ideas about Jewish “DNA” or “Character” etc etc.

            Any DNA issue is rather meaningless to me.

          • Omega

            I see what you mean. Since I didn’t read RichardD write of DNA, genes or genetics; I thought you inferred to it. My apologies for the confusion.

      Exactly that’s how Donbas militia downed the civilian plane, they found the scheme on the Internet, they tested it and happened that plane to be passing right above.

      • grumpy_carpenter

        I’m pretty sure the plane was brought down by a BUK. The only issue is whose BUK was it as both the Ukrainians and Russians use the same weapon. No harm in having a fertile imagination though.

      “ISIS and Al Queda”

      But as was confessed to in public, these are American backed, trained, and funded entitties.So they had it a tad easier.

    Problem may be the air defense for the production facilities of the UAVs.

    • PZIVJ

      The production of UAVs is probably well spread out.
      With mfg of sub components built at many smaller locations.

    The Saudis are in real trouble in Yemen and regret the day they decided to invade Yemen and install a puppet regime.

    This article speaks of unique features. The changes and modifications and the speed of development remind me of NKs surprising speed in demonstrating true ICBM capability that analysts thought was at least 5 to 10 in the future.

    The advancement in capabilities is dramatic like the rapid advances by NK in ICBM ability, much faster then any western intelligence estimates. NK was getting external assistance and this explained the acceleration in advancements.

    I have suspected for some time Ansarullah is getting external assistance, but not from Iran. Who would help and why is the question. On that I am coming to a conclusion but will say only this for now.

    Who are helping NK are also helping Ansarullah, for the same reasons.

    By the way, this is no stain on Ansarullah as they are incredible fighters that no one should mess with unless you want to be messed up… like the Coalition (of masochists).

      AFAIK NK was (supposedly)receiving technical (missile) assistance from Ukraine. It was claimed that they were in dire need of money, since their economy was toast. Of course, there is no concrete proof, but there was supposedly intel on this. Possibly black/grey market sales of tech and/or material. I would be wondering how they (Houthis) got their hands on Czech turbo jets. Did they have a pile of these in stock from previous purchases?

      • S Melanson

        Even if the Czech turbo jets were in plentiful supply, they are being used in a way that has not been done before. The drones are being modified in ways that require engineering aerospace expertise and experience with high tech drone technology. Also, the new models of drones and missiles seem to work great practically the first time so where were they testing them to work out issues? NK could not hide its tests…

    Sur l’imposture du ‘droit à l’existence’ de l’Etat d’Israël

    par Sayed Hasan (son site)

    Les apologistes des crimes d’Israël contre les Palestiniens prétendent que cet État a le « droit d’exister », dans un effort visant à légitimer le nettoyage ethnique de la Palestine.

    Les sionistes qui s’évertuent à défendre les crimes d’Israël contre le peuple palestinien portent souvent l’accusation que les détracteurs de l’ « Etat juif » autoproclamé tentent de le « délégitimer ». Israël, rétorquent-ils, a le « droit d’exister ». Mais ils se trompent.

    Il ne s’agit pas de faire une exception pour Israël. Il n’existe pas de « droit à l’existence » pour les États, point final. Aucun « droit à l’existence » n’est reconnu pour les Etats par le droit international. Un tel droit serait totalement insensé. Le concept même est absurde. Ce sont les individus, et non les entités politiques abstraites, qui ont des droits.

    Les droits individuels peuvent bien sûr être exercés collectivement, mais à la condition que cela se fasse sans préjudice pour les droits des individus. Le droit pertinent dans ce contexte est plutôt le droit à l’autodétermination, qui fait référence au droit d’un peuple à exercer collectivement ses droits individuels par le biais de l’autonomie politique. L’exercice collectif de ce droit ne peut porter atteinte à l’exercice individuel de ce droit. Le seul but légitime du gouvernement est de protéger les droits individuels, et un gouvernement n’a aucune légitimité sans le consentement des gouvernés. Ce n’est qu’en ce sens que le droit à l’autodétermination peut être exercé collectivement, par un peuple qui choisit pour lui-même son mode de gouvernement et qui y consent.

    Le droit à l’autodétermination, contrairement au concept absurde de « droit à l’existence » d’un État, est reconnu par le droit international. C’est un droit qui est explicitement garanti, par exemple, par la Charte des Nations Unies, que l’État d’Israël a ratifiée.

    Le cadre approprié pour la discussion est donc le droit à l’autodétermination, et c’est précisément pour obscurcir cette vérité que la propagande revendique fréquemment pour Israël le « droit d’exister ». Les apologistes d’Israël sont contraints de déplacer ainsi le cadre de la discussion, car dans le cadre du droit à l’autodétermination, c’est évidemment Israël qui rejette les droits des Palestiniens et non le contraire.

    Et ce n’est pas seulement dans la perpétuation de l’occupation des territoires palestiniens que le rejet d’Israël se manifeste. Ce rejet des droits des Palestiniens s’est également manifesté dans les moyens mêmes par lesquels Israël a été créé.

    Il existe une croyance populaire selon laquelle Israël a été fondé par une sorte de processus politique légitime. C’est faux. Ce mythe est fondé sur l’idée que la fameuse résolution sur le « plan de partition » de l’Assemblée Générale des Nations Unies – résolution 181 du 29 novembre 1947 – a légalement partitionné la Palestine et ainsi conféré une autorité légale aux dirigeants sionistes pour leur déclaration unilatérale de l’existence d’Israël le 14 mai 1948.

    En effet, dans cette déclaration, le document fondateur d’Israël, les dirigeants sionistes se sont appuyés sur la Résolution 181 pour revendiquer une légitimité juridique. Cependant, la vérité est que la Résolution 181 ne lui a rien conféré de tel. L’Assemblée Générale de l’ONU n’avait aucune autorité pour partitionner la Palestine contre la volonté de la majorité de ses habitants. Et elle n’a pas non plus eu la prétention de faire une telle chose. Au contraire, l’Assemblée s’est contentée de recommander la partition de la Palestine en Etats juif et arabe séparés, ce qui devrait être accepté par les deux peuples pour prendre effet sur le plan juridique. L’Assemblée a transmis la question au Conseil de sécurité, où le plan est devenu caduc du fait de la reconnaissance explicite que l’ONU n’avait aucune autorité pour mettre en œuvre – c’est-à-dire imposer – une telle partition.

    La déclaration unilatérale des sionistes est souvent décrite comme une « Déclaration d’indépendance ». Mais ce n’était rien de tel. Une déclaration d’indépendance suppose que le peuple qui déclare son indépendance soit souverain sur le territoire sur lequel il souhaite exercer son droit à l’autodétermination. Mais les sionistes n’étaient pas souverains sur la terre qui est devenue le territoire de l’État d’Israël.

    Au contraire, lorsqu’ils ont déclaré l’existence d’Israël, les Juifs possédaient moins de 7% de la terre en Palestine. Les Palestiniens possédaient plus de terres que les Juifs dans chacun des districts de la Palestine. Les Palestiniens constituaient également une majorité numérique en Palestine. Malgré l’immigration massive [et illégale], les Juifs restaient une minorité représentant environ un tiers de la population.

    Même à l’intérieur du territoire proposé par l’ONU pour l’Etat juif, lorsque la population bédouine a été recensée, les Arabes constituaient une majorité. Même à l’intérieur de ce territoire, les Arabes possédaient plus de terres que les Juifs.

    En clair, les dirigeants sionistes n’avaient absolument aucune légitimité [sinon celle de leurs textes religieux, qui ne font autorité nulle part] à revendiquer une souveraineté sur le territoire qu’ils ont finalement acquis par la guerre.

    D’autant plus que l’acquisition de territoire par la guerre – ou droit de conquête – est interdite par le droit international.

    Loin d’être le fruit d’un processus politique légitime, Israël a été créé par la violence. Les sionistes ont acquis la majeure partie du territoire de leur État par le nettoyage ethnique de la majeure partie de la population arabe, soit plus de 700 000 personnes, exclues de leurs demeures et de leurs terres en Palestine. Des centaines de villages arabes ont été littéralement détruits et rayés de la carte.

    Ainsi, quand les sionistes prétendent qu’Israël a un « droit à l’existence », ce qu’ils disent en réalité, c’est que les sionistes avaient le « droit » de procéder à un nettoyage ethnique de la Palestine afin d’établir leur « Etat juif ».

    Évidemment, un tel droit n’existe pas. Au contraire, une fois de plus, en droit international, le nettoyage ethnique est reconnu comme un crime contre l’humanité.

    Les sionistes accusent ceux qui dénoncent les crimes d’Israël contre les Palestiniens de vouloir « délégitimer » l’ « Etat juif », mais il importe de souligner que la déclaration unilatérale du 14 mai 1948 proclamant l’Etat d’Israël n’avait aucune légitimité. Il importe de souligner que le crime de nettoyage ethnique ne peut aucunement être justifié ou légitimé. Cela neutralise complètement les accusations des thuriféraires d’Israël.

    Lorsque cette accusation est portée contre les détracteurs d’Israël, ce qui se passe réellement, c’est que ce sont les apologistes d’Israël qui tentent de délégitimer le droit des Palestiniens à l’autodétermination, ainsi que le droit internationalement reconnu des réfugiés de guerre à retourner dans leur patrie.

    Indépendamment de l’illégitimité des moyens par lesquels Israël a été créé, il existe. Telle est la réalité actuelle. Cependant, l’exigence de l’Etat d’Israël que les Palestiniens reconnaissent son « droit » non seulement d’exister, mais d’exister « en tant qu’Etat juif », est simplement une exigence que les Palestiniens renoncent à leurs droits et adhèrent à la déclaration unilatérale des sionistes et au nettoyage ethnique de la Palestine en les reconnaissant comme légitimes.

    Et c’est pourquoi il n’y a pas eu de paix. Il n’y aura pas de paix tant que les droits des Palestiniens ne seront pas reconnus et respectés. Le problème pour les sionistes est que si les Palestiniens exercent leurs droits, cela signifierait la fin de l’existence d’Israël en tant qu’ « Etat juif ».

    Mais qu’y aurait-il de mal à mettre fin à un régime fondamentalement raciste qui viole perpétuellement le droit international et les droits de l’homme des Palestiniens ? Qu’y aurait-il de mal à le remplacer par un gouvernement qui respecte l’égalité des droits de tous les habitants du territoire sur lequel il exerce sa souveraineté politique et gouverne avec le consentement des gouvernés ?

    Pour quiconque est capable de faire preuve d’un minimum d’honnêteté et d’intégrité morale, la réponse claire aux deux questions est : rien. Il n’y aurait aucun mal à cela, bien au contraire.

    Pour tous ceux qui jouent un rôle actif dans la recherche de la paix et de la justice, c’est donc sur ce but que nous devons concentrer nos efforts collectifs. Il faut commencer par acquérir une bonne compréhension de la véritable nature du conflit et par ouvrir les yeux de tous ceux qui sont intègres, mais qui ont été trompés par les mensonges et la propagande qui ont perpétué la violence et l’injustice pendant si longtemps.
