The leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement called attempts by a number of Arab states to normalize ties with Israel as contradicting Islamic values and teachings.

Iran Press/Middle East: The leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik al-Houthi has vehemently condemned attempts by a number of Arab states and the Persian Gulf kingdoms to normalize diplomatic relations with the Zionist regime, stressing that such efforts are in blatant contradiction to the teachings of Islam.

According to a Press TV report, delivering a televised speech broadcast live from the Yemeni capital Sana’a on Sunday afternoon, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said: “The Israeli regime is a partner to the ongoing military aggression against Yemen. Their hostility toward Yemen is intensely reflected in their media reports. The administration of (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu is complicit in this onslaught.”

He added, “The scandalous Warsaw Conference -- an international gathering organized by Washington in the Polish capital on February 13-14 -- was, in fact, a declaration of normalization and partnership with Israel."

“There can be no normalization and relations with the Israeli enemy unless at the expense of the Palestinian cause and recognition of (Tel Aviv regime’s) occupation,” Abdul-Malik al-Houthi noted.

The Ansarullah leader further pointed out that normalization of relations with the Tel Aviv regime will pave the way for Americans and Israelis to advance their projects in the Middle East region.

“Occupation of any part of the Muslim world is a bid to target Muslims. Normalization of ties with the Israeli enemy amounts to opposition to all those who are at odds with the Tel Aviv regime. Such normalization runs contrary to the teachings of Islam,” The Ansarullah leader highlighted.

The Ansarullah leader's remarks came amid reports denoting that Israel and several Arab states have had secret contacts for years, and the two sides have stepped up their attempts to bring their clandestine relations out in the open.
