Yemeni Ansar Allah leader has underlined the need for Islamic cohesion in the face of the West's soft warfare to control the Muslim world in various fields.

Iran PressWest Asia: The global Zionist lobby and its American, Israeli, and some European arms are seeking to contain and infiltrate the Islamic Ummah, said Yemeni Ansar Allah movement leader Sayyed Abdul-Malik al-Houthi on Tuesday.

In his speech on the eve of the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), al-Houthi stressed that the enemies of the Islamic world have reached the point of interfering in the curricula of Arab and Islamic countries.

Soft warfare aims to control the Muslim world in various fields, he said, adding that the Islamic people need to be cohesive in order to regain their leading role in the world.

According to the Yemeni leader, Muslims today, more than ever, need to strengthen their connection to the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (PBUH), and the Quran, in order to regain their freedom, dignity, and liberation from all forms of subjugation.

Regarding the occasion of the noble birth anniversary of the Prophet, Sayyed al-Houthi said that the extent of engagement with this occasion enhances hope, meaning that the Yemeni people are qualified to provide a distinguished example of their faith and loyalty to the Messenger of Allah.

"The anniversary of the Prophet's birth connects us to the greatest Islamic symbol, the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, and it strengthens our connection to Islam and the Quran, enhancing awareness," he underlined.

On Yemen's internal affairs, al-Houthi stated that the absence of competency standards is one of the main reasons for problems in all state institutions, adding that the deprivation of services is an issue that Yemenis all over the nation complain about.

"National wealth has been squandered and plundered for decades, not harnessed for the service of the Yemeni people," he said. Some political figures have accumulated immense wealth, and they are now enjoying it in the UAE, Egypt, Turkey, and elsewhere, the leader added.

"Officials from the previous regime are shedding crocodile tears for the Yemeni people today, standing with the coalition of aggression after they contributed to the shedding of Yemeni blood."

Al-Houthi underlined that the stability of state institutions in recent years is an achievement in and of itself, adding that the situation in state institutions should not continue as it is because there are deep imbalances in systems, laws, and procedures.

He asserted his belief that radical change should be accompanied by popular direction to change the reality of institutions, noting that there are effective and loyal cadres who have served the country diligently in various provinces, but there are also weak cadres, some of whom are exploited and others are hostile.
