A pro-Houthi German TV movie angers Yemenis

Saturday 18 June 2022

A new film published by a foreign channel about the war in Yemen has angered the Yemenis, because it carried misleading messages taking the side of the terrorist Houthi militia.

The German Deutsche Welle channel broadcast a film on June 12 entitled "The Dirty War of Yemen", reversing the reality in Yemen upside down.

Violation of professional standards

Yemeni journalist Abdullah Ismail said, "The German station violated all standards of professionalism and respect for the audience, by promoting the image of one of the world's most racist and backward groups, and whitewashing the group's leaders, without making any effort to present the mainstream impression of the Yemeni people, the victims of Houthi racism."

On Friday, Yemeni activists tweeted under the hashtag #HouthiIsNaziGroup, to shed light on the Houthi crimes against the Yemeni people, including discrimination and racist terrorism practiced by the group, and also to denounce the content of the German film.

The campaign drew a great interaction on social media, and activists published photos and videos that reveal some of the crimes of Houthi terrorism against Yemenis.


The German movie reflects the Houthi views

Yemen's Deputy Information Minister Abdul Baset Al-Qaedi said in a tweet, “The German channel Deutsche Welle broadcast a movie presenting the perspective of the Houthi gang and named it “The Dirty War of Yemen.” The one-eyed attitude ignored the fact that the fuse of this war was lit by the Houthi gang and Houthis are the one who keep this war perpetual and invest in it.”

For his part, journalist and human rights activist Hamdan Al-Ali said in a tweet, "If Nazism in Europe is a populist racism, these [Houthi] families in Yemen claim that their genes are special."

Al-Ali added, "At the same time, they imbue it (racism) with a divine, priestly theocratic character, because they believe that God has assigned them to rule people and control their money, property, and destinies, and whoever opposes that is a 'disbeliever'."



The ugliest group of all time

Yemeni journalist Kamel Al-Khoudani believes that the history of Yemen has not witnessed a group that displayed such unique ugliness and criminality, not even invaders and colonizers of any nationality or religion, as the Houthis have displayed.

Al-Khoudani pointed out that this group did not surpass other criminal groups known to the geography of Yemen, but rather to all the groups known to the geography and history of the world.


The Houthis are the cause of every crime

Journalist Muhammad Al-Dhabiani confirms that the terrorist Houthi militia is the cause of every crime and terrorism that affects Yemenis in the north and south.

Al-Dhabiani noted that Yemenis would not have reached this tragic situation had it not been for Iran's Houthi mercenaries and their war against the Yemenis, their control of state institutions, their aggression, their racist and sectarian terrorism, and their tearing of the social fabric.


Regarding what was also mentioned in the film of the German channel, the advisor of the Ministry of Information, Ahmed Al-Musaibili, said, "The dirty war of Yemen is the one waged by the racist Houthi dynasty on the Yemeni and Arab identity, which has constituted and still constitutes an existential threat to the Yemeni people as an Arab people with their identity, authenticity and heritage." .


 Government condemnation of the film

The Yemeni Ministry of Information had sent an official letter to the German channel Deutsche Welle, slamming the film.

In a message addressed to the channel, the Minister of Information said, "The film dealt with a single view of events in Yemen, and deliberately overlooked many facts of the war launched by the Houthi terrorist militia against the Yemeni state and people since September 21, 2014, and its use of weapons and violence as a tool to achieve political gains and a coup against all that the Yemenis agree to at the Comprehensive National Dialogue Conference.

Al-Eryani pointed out that the film contained extremely serious accusations against the government, its members, and the provincial leaders, without evidence and foundations, without communicating with the government and allowing it the opportunity to clarify and refute those allegations, and without listening to another point of view. And this is not consistent with the simplest rules of media productions and the incorporate all views.

He called on the channel to listen to more clarifications and answers to the inquiries and issues it would like to inquire about by the Yemeni official authorities.
