It seems like everyone and their mother (including myself) penned a response to influential American scholar Shaykh Hamza Yusuf's claim in a viral video that Muslim's in the Middle East are "not ready" to fight off their oppressors.
But the best rejoinder came from the barefooted Yemeni Resistance, which, less than a week later, shockingly set ablaze the world's biggest oil refinery Aramco in Saudi Arabia, running up oil prices 18% and pushing down major stock markets in one swift move.
The poorest Arab country, Yemen has produced a strong resistance movement despite suffering death, devastation, and starvation after a coalition led by Saudi Arabia, along with the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), started bombing and blockading the Yemenis four years ago for overthrowing a repressive Saudi-backed regime.
The fearless Yemeni Resistance has also warned the U.A.E. of missile strikes on their port city of Dubai if they don't pack up and leave their country.
Guess who lives part-time in the U.A.E. working on a government-sponsored "peace forum"?
Shaykh Hamza Yusuf!
Now, tell me, who needs to get "ready"?
