A senior Houthi militant has said that his militia won’t consider any international peace initiative in Yemen “as long as it dismisses the principle of Wilayah,” a Shia Islamic system of government under the custodianship of a religious jurist.
Mohammed al-Bukheiti, the Houthi governor of Dhamar province, from where the theocratic militia recruit the manpower for their endless wars, made the revelations in a tweet.
The Houthi militia annually celebrate the Wilayah Day, which marks, according to its myth, prophet Muhammad’s establishment of a dynastical rule.
Yemenis deride the international calls for peace between the government and Houthis, saying the Houthi constant aversion of peace stems from the militia’s commitment to the Wilaya which has its roots in the militia’s religious books and is why the militia originally came into being.
