Saudi Arabia Builds 1,100 Mile Fence Along Yemen Border

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-22086231

Saudi Arabia is building a giant border fence to seal off its troubled frontier with Yemen, Saudi border authorities have told the BBC.

The 1,800km (1,100-mile) fence is set to run from the Red Sea coast in the west to the edge of Oman in the east.

Security has deteriorated on the Yemeni side after its long-term president stepped down in 2012, Saudi border official Lt Col Hamed al-Ahmari said.

Yemen is considered a base of al-Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula (AQAP).

President Ali Abdullah Saleh was forced to hand over power after 33 years to his deputy, Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, in February last year after months of anti-government protests. Since then, militants have gained ground in the country.

Border security has dramatically worsened in the aftermath of the revolution, as thousands of illegal immigrants, drug smugglers and gun runners try to slip from impoverished Yemen into Saudi Arabia, one of the world's richest countries, Lt al-Ahmari told the BBC's Frank Gardner.

Five Saudi border guards had recently been killed along the border in shoot-outs with well-armed smugglers, he added.

The first part of the fence has already been built on the coast, slowing down - but not stopping - the tide of illegal immigrants.

Smugglers and militants have already shown ingenuity to circumvent the new border by using women, mules and secret paths to get into Saudi Arabia, our correspondent reports.

Earlier this month, UN-backed reconciliation talks began in Yemen aimed at drafting a new constitution and preparing for full democratic elections next February.

Is this the future for the world?

As the climate inevitably changes, the world gets hotter, continents are increasingly desertified, crops fail and the poorest are starved, will the richer countries simply build a fence to prevent 'illegal immigration' and keep the poor and starving out?

Of course the article mentions 'terrorism' but I think the underlying story here is one of the poverty, starvation, migration (to escape it) and global depopulation which is likely already in train and only going to get worse over the remainder of our lifetimes.

So, will/can we just shut them all out with massive border fences until they've starved?

Saudi is the one country in the Middle East that really needs it's head lobbed off. Bunch of pious savages.

I am sure they are in the greater plan for western backed Middle East destabilisation.

The beautiful mountain region they showed on the news last night looked more hospitable than here!

Arabia...a land of nomads and local Kings.

Now we gave them oil, set up families for life as kings, and look....we have the nomads blocked, public rebellions quashed and civil war in many areas.

God Bless the Empire....

Where is Tony Bliar, our very own peace envoy with his invasion force, when you need him?

Saudi is one of the few remaining places in the world the globalists haven't taken over and corrupted. Unfortunately their ruling elite is just as evil in its own way. Saudi is very strong on preserving its purity...apparently there is no such thing as a tourist visa there. To access the country you must do so on grounds of religion, business or family. Kudos to them for securing their borders though.

Well, not really. You can get a tourist visa although they don't give many out but the country has thousands of illegal immigrants from Indian, Pakistani etc. who come over on Haj visas & stay. That's not to mention the millions who are there on business/ work visas. Saudi is in the process of offering amnesty to illegals who can find a sponsor in the next couple of months.

They do seem to dislike the Yemenis almost as much as the palestinians; when I worked there the lowest paid people on the whole poject were the two Yemenis.

"Yemen is considered a base of al-Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula (AQAP)."

15 of the "9/11" hijackers were Saudi Arabian, out of a total of 19.

For some reason a few ordinary Saudis see their cocaine taking, whore abusing rulers as corrupted by the West, London is full of Saudi playboys having a good time.

Maybe the fence is there to protect the Yemen.

Fatwa By Saudi Sheikh: Soccer Players Are Infidels

On December 5, 2012, Saudi sheikh Suleiman Al-'Alwan, a popular Salafi-jihadi cleric, was released after being imprisoned without a trial for nine years.[1] Al-'Alwan's trial began only recently; he is accused of having ties to Al-Qaeda and issuing fatwas permitting terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia and targeting Western interests in the world and in the Saudi kingdom.[2]

Since his release, Al-'Alwan has received many visitors, including sheikhs and former students, and has been asked to give his opinion on religious questions. On December 23, 2012, in response to a question posed by a Saudi youth, Al-'Alwan said that soccer was a form of heresy: "Soccer is a Masonic game meant to distance Muslims from their religion and faith, and most of the public that follows [soccer games] is loyal to the infidels." Al-'Alwan called soccer players criminals and infidels: "[When] a man watches a [soccer] game, God forbid, he is watching deviant criminals and sinful infidels, even if they are Muslims." He added: "There is a serious problem with [soccer] games, which is the refereeing, which follows manmade laws, not Allah's laws."[3]

Maybe football refereeing would improve if it followed Allah's laws?

For sure, Lampard's disallowed goal in the last World Cup would definitely have stood, and Maradona's Hand of God goal would never have been allowed! :angry:
