Alsahwa Net- Since its birth in 1990, the Islah Party has been dealing with terrorism as a global issue before classifying it as a local or a religious problem.
The party has been defending the true Islam against extremist ideologies and acts of violence exercised by some individuals or groups who claim affiliation to Muslims.
The party relies on a clear vision on this aspect, which has been reflected on its ideological and political literature and embodied in its unchanging stances through official statements or statements by its high, middle and junior leaders.
Within its top priorities, the Islah affirmed on the support to government efforts towards countering terrorism using integrated ideological and security approaches..
The Islah was among the first entities that publicly rejected all forms of extremism and the illegal use of force irrespective of justification by anyone. The party views terrorism as a problem that must be confronted by everyone and to stop any party that uses the force to impose its objectives. Yet, the standalone force has proved failure in combating terrorism. The use of force alone in combating terrorism must be accompanied by a systematic package to address the roots of terrorism and eliminate its sources .
The Islah affirmed very early that terrorism flourishes only in climate of oppression and the use of various forms of torture, and that the promotion of democracy is the right solution to eliminate terrorism in Yemen .
It has been constantly asking its members to implement such principles in their public conduct. This was articulated in the concluding statement of the second session of the Islah’s local Shoura Committee meeting in Aden province. The statement then called on members of the Islah to display the Islah’s character by adopting dialogue, moderation in words and actions and to resist all forms of extremism .
The Islah’s Higher Committee called on members of the party to contribute at the promotion of tolerance, combating violence and extremism and anything that threatens others’ freedoms, or their rights provided commitment to the constitution and the law .
It does not confine itself to addressing only its members, the Islah has been also active on the awareness of terrorism risks to everyone in Yemen and cautioning the public about repercussions of this threat on the Muslim community .
Within its full awareness of the need to engage everyone including communities and states in combating terrorism, it called to collective efforts towards community awareness about terrorism risks. It called on education and information platforms to assume their duties at educating children on the right moderate Islam away from extremism .
The Islah renews its rejection and condemnation to terrorism with any terror attack occurs for its bad consequences on the nation and the people. The third general conference of the Islah renewed the party’s rejection and condemnation to the use of violence in political activities. It also condemned sabotage acts that harm the public safety and security as well makes the country vulnerable to extortion and stealing of its resources .
The party does not adopt such positions for political advantages, but for firm religious convictions that Islam is the religion of moderation, compassion, rejects such acts and cannot be a source of lawlessness. This was affirmed by the late President of the Islah Party, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Hussein Al-Ahmar who said that Islam rejects violence and terrorism and anything that harms the people and the society .
On several occasions, the Islah condemned the use of all forms of violence. “We are against violence or the use of violence as a tool to express opinion and the Islah party denounce violence whether exercised by the authority, groups or individuals” .
We present here some of the statements that supports the Islah’s vision towards rejection of the political violence:
“The Islah party is not a leader of violence and cannot be a leader of sedition in the society. It deals with all issues, using democratic approaches. The use of violence is not part of the Islah’s approach.” .
“The Islah’s environment refuses extremism, rejects it and bans its adoption or living with it.” .
“The Islah affirms its principle and obvious stance that it rejects all means of violence and terrorism irrespective of their sources or names. That is what the party has been committed to throughout its political activities and since its creation.” .
“We have no choice, but the democratic change as bitter cases of non-peaceful change by some Islamic and national movements that had resulted into deaths, retaliations and divisions. Other parties must capitalize on the awareness of change among citizen.” .
“The Islah party is not new to the scene. We have been exercising the peaceful political action for 30 years. We reject violence, terrorism and extremism.” .
The condemnation of violence and political terrorism has dominated the Islah’s stances until most recently. “Our battle against terrorism is real and it must be one of the prime issues among the government’ priorities and other effective actors. We are confident that the defeat to terrorism is possible in Yemen if misuse of this dangerous file had been halted. Terrorism has no social or political refuge which confirms that the society rejects sympathizing with terror militants and ready to cooperate to its elimination” .
President of the Islah party, Mohammed Al-Yadoumi renewed affirming to the “party’s unchanging stance on rejection of all forms and methods of extremism and terrorism.” He also affirmed on the moderate approach of the Islah that has been adopted since its establishment” .
Islah’s positions to local terror attacks, assassinations, and kidnappings:
The party declared its rejection to several local bloody and violent incidents including assassinations, kidnappings, bombings, and armed confrontations and said that such acts oppose values and culture of the Yemeni people .
We revisit the archive to present some positions that were voiced by the Islah and its leaders towards some terror incidents:
For instance, when a group of gunmen clashed with the police in Aden in September 1994 on the background of, demolishing shrines in Al-Hashmi Mosque of Sheikh Othman and Al-Aidaroos Mosque in Aden city, an official source of the party condemned the acts against the shrines and said that such militants do not truly understand Islam [19, 20].
It demanded the government to investigate perpetrators and expose the truth to the society and the world and to immediately put an end to such practices that threaten Yemen’s unity, security, and stability .
An official source of the party also condemned a suicide car bombing before a Super Shopping Store in Aden in November 1997. The source described the incident as “criminal, barbaric and inhumane which opposes Islamic, national and humanitarian values and do not agree with the ethics and traits of the Yemeni people” .
The source indicated that such acts come only from an organization that stands in the line of the Muslim nation’s enemies and no political reasons can be justified for such actions” . It affirmed that tolerance with such terror practices may open wider door for the enemies who plot against Yemen’s unity, security and stability” .
In another incident of suicide bombing car in the capital Sana’a that took place in November 1998 which resulted into death of three citizens, an official source expressed its firm rejection to all criminal acts particularly the use of suicide car bombings that represent one of the most brutal crimes and it totally opposes the Yemeni values and benefits only the nation’s enemies. The source affirmed the need to the government to assume its responsibility firmly with no tolerance towards combating this sort of crimes that threaten stability and security. It demanded transparent investigations into illegal acts” .
The Islah condemned the throwing of a hand grenade at Bab Al-Yemen in the capital Sana’a in August 1999 which was followed by the gunfire exchange and resulted into death of six people and injuring of over 50 persons. Chief of the Islah’s Political Department, Mohammed Qahtan said that the incident remains a crime whatever its motivations were. He affirmed on the government departments to assume their tasks to put an end to such incidents including the security services and the judiciary apparatus. He demanded all citizens-individuals and parties to assume their duties towards the protection of the country’s security and stability and that political forces must stop political investment on issues that threaten the public security.” .
The Islah condemned “kidnappings of Yemenis and non-Yemenis early 1999 that threatened lives of the victims and distorted Yemen’s reputation” .
It also condemned insecurity acts that were seen in some Yemeni provinces which included bombings and kidnappings. It said that these acts are rejected whatever motivations were. It said that these acts are criminal whether they were politicized or non-politicized and whether they were implemented by individuals or groups. It demanded the government to quickly address this issue by real reformation of the judiciary and security services” .
The President of the Islah, then Abdullah Al-Ahmar condemned the attack against the USS Cole Destroyer, off Aden in October 2000 .
The party also condemned the murder of American doctors in Jibla Hospital of Ibb province in January 2003. It says then that “such acts target primarily the nation and distorts Yemen’s reputation and Islam” .
The Islah then, used the incident to remind about principles of Islam that obligate respect for human lives and the ban of the bloodshed. The Islah’s statement on the crime then said that “The Islah’s Higher Committee expressed its deep concern to the emergence of terror incidents which is unusual in Yemen and such attacks by some extremists harms the religion of Islam that prohibits murder and obliges Muslims to respect the human lives and any attack against one person resembles an aggression against everyone” .
The Islah condemned the attack by militants of terror group against a military medical team in Hatat area in Sarar disrict of Abyan province in June 2003. Executive Chief of the Islah’s office in Abyan stated then “we condemn all forms of violence and terrorism by any party.” He added that what happened against the medical team is an unaccepted and called on everyone to preserve security and unity of the nation” .
The Islah party condemned the attack that targeted the headquarters of the GPC’s mouthpiece, almoatamr.net in January 2005. The Islah said then that the incident is cowardly and evil attack. The Secretary General’s Office said in a press release about the incident that it condemns and denounces this criminal act against the GPC’s mouthpiece website’s headquarters and its staff and demanded investigation of perpetrators and bringing them to justice. It renewed rejection of the use of violence and to resolve all disputes in line to the constitution in courtrooms .
The Islah condemned the kidnapping of a Swiss couple in Marib in November 2005. An official source of the Islah’s Secretary General’s Office said that such acts do not agree with Yemen’s values and such acts damage the country’s interests. It demanded security services to make all efforts possible to rescue the hostages and punish perpetrators. It called on citizens to cooperate with the authority to rescue the captives” .
The joint Meeting Parties (JMP) that includes the Islah party condemned the bombing attack against the US Embassy in Sana’a in September 2008. The JMP’s statement described the incident as cowardly and evil attack. The attack resulted into deaths and injured others. The JMP affirmed its rejection to all forms of violence and demanded the authority to assume its responsibility towards its people and foreign residents in Yemen. It asked the government to pursue and disclose perpetrators and bring them to justice” .
Following the abduction of five German nationals in Shabwa in December 2005, an official source of the Islah Secretary General Office called on the concerned authorities to address the kidnapping and investigate its causes and take appropriate actions in line to the Yemeni constitution. It warned that any slowness by the government to take the issue seriously, will have bad effects on the country’s development .
The Islah within other JMP parties condemned the Al-Sabeen attack in the capital Sana’a that led to the death of 100 troops and injured 300 others in May 2012. It said that this criminal incident shows profound loathing at the Yemeni people. The JMP parties blamed the incident on parties that did not like the political transition and demanded formation of a technocrat committee to probe the incident and bring perpetrators and colluding parties to justice .
The JMP supported the military campaign that the Yemeni army implemented against terror organizations and armed groups in Hadhramaut, Shabw and Abyan in May 2014. It said that the war on Al-Qaeda has become a national issue and that it requires collective cooperation and support to the national armed forces in the combating against terrorism .
Condemnation of terror attacks around the world
Islah’s condemnation to terror attacks has not been confined only to local incidents. The party has been condemning terror operations that had affected the region or the entire world.
We present her some of the Islah’s stances towards terror attacks that happen in the region or in different parts of the world.
The Islah condemned the bombing that targeted local and foreign workers in Al-Khubr city of Saudi Arabia in June 1996 .
In this respect, it condemned the terror attacks which targeted the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in August 1998 .
An official source of the party’s Secretary General Office condemned the terror attacks targeted New York and Washington on 11 September 2001 .
In a question raised by one journalist, the Chief of the Islah’s Political Department, renewed this condemnation in more comprehensive words.
“We at Islah have initiated the condemnation of the September attacks that no one accepts. Our party believes in the peaceful political action. Islam is the religion of tolerance. Our party has supported steps intended to generally combat extremism. We have been against all forms of terrorism whether exercised by individuals, groups, or governments. All outlaws must be brought to justice in accordance to the law that does not permit terror attacks on civilians and innocents” .
The Islah’s President condemned terror attacks that affected innocent citizens and residents in Al-Riyadh of Saudi Arabia in August 2003. He then said that such acts disagree with teachings of Islam .
The Islah condemned in strong terms the terror attacks that targeted Casablanca of Morocco which led to deaths of scores of citizens and residents in August 2003.The Islah’s Secretary General’s Office, called on Muslim communities to implement principles and values of Islam that do not accept extremism and terrorism. It said that Islam affirms on maintenance of human lives and the human dignity. It called on the world’s people to stand together against terror acts to ensure maintenance, stability and democracy of peoples and protect them against extremism trends” .
A delegation of the Islah visited the Saudi Embassy and the Moroccan Embassy in Sana’a and affirmed on the importance that all good forces must stand together to counter extremism and terrorism that threaten security and stability of all human societies” .
The Islah’s Secretary General Office robustly condemned the terror bombings that targeted Al-Muhaya Residential Complex, west of Al-Riyadh in November 2003. The party said that such incidents represent terror and criminal acts and foreign to the Muslim community” .
The Islah continued condemning all acts of violence and terror bombings that used to take place frequently in Arab and foreign countries with no distinction between religions and sects. The party also condemned terror bombings in Karbala and Baghdad of Iraq in March 2004 which claimed lives of hundreds of innocents .
It also condemned the following terror bombings in Madrid of Spain that took place in the same month which killed around 200 innocents . It also condemned the Police Headquarters attack in Al-Riyadh in April 2004 which claimed lives of several people and injured others .

The Islah’s Secretary General’s Office condemned the terror bombings of London in July 2005 that led to scores of deaths and injuries among innocents. The office stated its rejection and denouncing to such terror acts and said that such incidents represent serious attacks on the humanity. It called on all Muslims and peoples of all cultures and races to cooperate towards serious terrorism combating as well as to promote values of moderation, tolerance, and coexistence among human beings” . In its regular sixth session, the Islah’s Shoura Council condemned the London terror attacks and said such acts disagree with divine laws and human norms” .
The Islah condemned the chain of terror attacks that rocked New Delhi in October 2005 which led to the death of 60 people and injury of 188 others among innocents .
The Islah condemned the chain of terror bombings that targeted Amman of Jordan in November 2005. The Islah’s Secretary General’s Office affirmed that such terror incidents had affected the human security and safety with no distinction to any race or religion” .
The Islah’s unchanging stances to terror attacks disclose that the party does not differentiate between religion, sect or country because terrorism has no religion or country. In this respect, the Islah condemned the bombing that targeted the Shiite Imam Mahdi’s shrine in Samra’a of Iraq as well as assassinations and attacks that targeted some Imams and prayers in Baghdad’s mosques in February 2006. An official source of the Islah’s Secretary General’s Office said that such incidents represent horrendous sedition that threatens sectarian conflict among the Iraqi people” .
Following this approach, the Islah continued its condemnation of all terror acts that rocked the region and the world.
Affected by terrorism
For being the biggest opposition party in Yemen, the Islah has been also the worst affected party by terrorism. This includes the regime’s intimidation against the party by attempting to accuse it with links to terrorism or by targeting its members and its headquarters by some terror group such as Al-Qaeda organization that considers the Islah as an apostate.
Mohammed Al-Yadoumi, as he was the Secretary general of the Islah party, affirmed that “some political forces attempt to link us to extremism and terrorism. However, our 30-year presence on the Yemeni political scene disagrees with such claims. Using dialog, we have been able to reach with all political forces to some common ground and national constants” .
The Islah affirmed its rejection to the promotion of religious extremism with the aim of shortening the Islah’s expansion. “Who benefits from the support to the promotion of religious extremism that publicly rejects democracy, election and political pluralism and calls for the use of violence to change the situation.” .
Four members of the Islah party were gunned down on 29 April 1997 while guarding ballot boxes of the Constituency no. 287 in Al-Madan area of Hajja province, north Yemen. Thousands of the participants to the victims’ funeral raised placards that condemn violence and terrorism and demand investigation. However, the Islah had frequently affirmed that it will not respond to frequent attacks against its members. Moreover, the party directed its members to exercise self-restraint and not to be dragged into provocation and to only seek justice through the judiciary” .
In July 1998, explosive devices were found in scattered locations of Ataq, capital city of Shabwa Province, among them some explosives that were planted nearby residence of the Islah’s Chief.
Al-Hassan Ali Haider, Chief of the Islah in Shabwa said then, “Bombs that security men found nearby his house comes within evil plots that aim to drag the country into violence. The Islah will not drag into violence as our approach is obvious on the rejection to violence and mutiny” .
Mohammed Qahtan, chief of the Islah’s Political Department, affirmed on members of the party to reject all attempts of dragging them into non-peaceful methods. He said that all attempts by the regime to link the party to terrorism has failed. He added the party recorded no case of committing terror attack or violence as such acts are not part of the Islah’s behavior.” .
The Islah said that it not possible anymore to trade on the terrorism issue or to use as a tool to crush people’s inspiration for change to fair and good governance. It called on the Yemeni regime to learn from other countries how to deal with the opposition and western effort to bridge the division between the east and the west” .
“The Islah party renews its commitment to the political struggling and renounce all forms of violence and calls on the government to stop harming citizens and demanded it to let others do their jobs if it is failing to assume duty on fighting terrorism. It demanded its members to face challenges with being more open to the societal forces and more attachment to the culture of democratic change and political struggle to contribute at the comprehensive reform” .
Assassination of Yemeni Socialist leader
The assassination of Assistant Secretary General of the Yemeni Socialist Party (YSP), Jarallah Omar took place on 28 December 2002 coincided with brutal media campaign led the regime of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh against the Islah. The murder took place upon Omar’s completion of his party’s speech during the opening session of the Islah’s 3rd General Conference in Sana’a. The regime’s media outlets reported falsely that the terrorist who committed the murder belongs to the Islah. The Islah denied such false reports, condemned the terror crime against the YSP official and said that such acts threaten the Islah and values of democracy, freedom and justice.” The Islah’s Higher Committee denied the murderer’s affiliation to the party, and said that such false information threatens the country’s security and stability. It called on an investigation of the case to bring real perpetrators to justice” .
During the first meeting following the incident, the Islah’s Higher Committee demanded the authority to work seriously on pursuing perpetrators to the crime and not to change terror attacks into a bargaining chip for political extortion. It renewed the party’s stance on the rejection of violence and terrorism and its commitment to peaceful competition and political pluralism.” .
The Islah’s formed a joint committee with the YSP to follow up developments of the investigation on the murder of the YSP official. It said that the murder targets the Islah itself and its organizational structure as the government-run media accused the Islah of murdering the YSP leader” .
The Islah worked seriously with the YSP on the formation of a national committee that included characters of all political spectrums to foil any use of terror crimes for political retaliation” .
Chief of the Islah’s Political Department, received on 20 November 2005, a threat letter from anonymous who couriered it to his home. The letter included death threat and taboo words.
Scores of the Islah’s leaders and members have assassinated in Aden since the recent war broke out in 2015. However, the Islah and its members remain steadfast and persistent on not be dragged into violence.
“The Islah’s members and supporters have been leaders of goodness and promoters of coexistence, peace and stability. The Islah present a good example of commitment to civil peaceful action that rejects extremism, violence, and terrorism though its co-founders were murdered, its headquarters were set on fire in attempts to drag the party into violence. Yet, the party clings to its convictions and principles.” .
In his speech on the 29th anniversary of the Islah’s establishment, on 13 September 2019, the President of the Islah, Mohammed Al-Yadoumi, affirmed that the Islah rejects distortion campaigns against the party particularly those that attempt to label the party or link it to terrorism.
“We have seen how the Islah’s most sincere national stances were changed into a domain of extortion including its support to the legitimate government.” He called for a national conference to counter terrorism .
