Beitrag Arabische Halbinsel Antworten mit Zitat
Etwas präziser als "Asien" darf man in meinen Augen schon sein und deshalb dieser Thread. Die Stadionkonstruktion in Brasilien war ein Ponyhof im Vergleich zu Katar: http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2014/07/14/like_jail_watching_world_cup_qatar_2022_forced_labor

Beitrag Jemen: Proteste gegen Benzinpreiserhöhungen Antworten mit Zitat
Aufgrund gestrichener Subventionen wird Benzin im Jemen 90% teurer. Die Leute sind ziemlich wütend: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2014/07/yemen-rage-unliveable-price-fuel-201473163925741286.html

Zitat:
Meanwhile, on one of the hundreds of dabbab minibuses that crisscross Sanaa on a daily basis, customers were surprised to learn that the fare had doubled overnight from YR50 ($0.23) to YR100 ($0.47) for a short journey. "Tomorrow, everyone will get their AKs [Kalashnikovs] and screw the government up," said Mohammed, a 19-year-old drama student who boarded the bus. "The cost of living was too high before, and now it is unliveable. The price of everything, sugar, cigarettes, will go up."

Beitrag Jemen auf dem Weg zum Bürgerkrieg? Antworten mit Zitat
Im Jemen wird die Lage immer explosiver:

Zitat:
Suspected Al-Qaeda militants have seized control of a town in southwest Yemen, hours after Shiite rebels overran a nearby provincial capital, a security official said Thursday.

Five policemen were killed in the overnight offensive by militants on the town of Udain, 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) west of the now rebel-controlled Ibb, the security official and local sources said.

The gunmen attacked the police headquarters, which was set ablaze, and the offices of the local government, as well as the post office.

Al-Qaeda is active in several Yemeni provinces, mainly in the south and southeast, where repeated government military campaigns drove the network's militants out of key cities they once controlled.

Beitrag Proteste in Bahrein Antworten mit Zitat
Proteste gegen einen Stützpunkt der britischen Armee:

Zitat:
Britain’s decision to open a major naval base in Bahrain despite concerns over the country’s human rights record has been met with protests by opposition groups and human rights activists.

Hundreds of protesters were filmed marching through the town of Sitra, a Shia opposition stronghold, calling for the removal of the British ambassador, Iain Lindsay, after the decision was announced.

Activists said Bahrain’s decision to largely fund the base was a “reward” for Britain’s recent silence over the jailing of opponents to the Sunni monarchy.

Beitrag Lohnsklaverei in Abu Dhabi Antworten mit Zitat
Kultur ist teuer - v.a. für Proletarier, die sie bauen:

Zitat:
One worker on the Louvre site said he was owed more than £1,250 ($1,900) in unpaid wages and end-of-service benefits, dating back to 2005. Neither he nor a colleague in a similar situation had filed a complaint after being threatened by their employer. A group of 12 Louvre site workers had filed a complaint for unpaid wages against the same contractor in a Dubai court in February, but the case had been adjourned twice and remained unresolved. Meanwhile, three Bangladeshi workers on the NYU site said they were on a basic salary of £125 per month – half the amount they had been promised – but they could not leave the country as they were still paying off the debts they had accrued to gain their employment, including £1,690 in recruitment fees.

Many workers were found to be living in slum-like accommodation. In Abu Dhabi city centre, a researcher found 27 men crammed into two small rooms, including 11 who worked as painters at the NYU campus. Fifteen men lived in one room and 12 in the other. Video footage shows insects crawling around the kitchen, exposed electrical wires wrapped around a showerhead, and a hole punched in the fire escape door, which was locked.

Beitrag Bürgerkrieg im Jemen Antworten mit Zitat
Dieser Artikel gibt einen guten Überblick zum Bürgerkrieg im Jemen:

Zitat:
The Huthi-Hadi divide is the most explosive, but it is not the only conflict. Tensions are also unsettling the recent marriage of convenience between the Huthis and former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who, after being deposed in 2011, has taken advantage of popular dissatisfaction and tacitly allied himself with the Huthis against their common enemies to stage a political comeback through his party, the General People’s Congress (GPC), and possibly his son, Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh. Divisions in the south, which was an independent state prior to its 1990 union with the north, are rampant as well. Southern separatists are internally split and suspicious of Hadi, a southerner who supports continued unity with the north. Then there are al-Qaeda and a nascent Islamic State (IS) movement, both determined to fight the Huthis and take advantage of the state’s collapse to claim territory.

Beitrag Katar: BBC-Reporter verhaftet Antworten mit Zitat
Die Gastarbeiter werden gar nicht so schlecht behandelt, meint die Regierung von Katar:

Zitat:
Whatever the explanation, Qatar's Jekyll-and-Hyde approach to journalism has been exposed by the spotlight that has been thrown on it after winning the World Cup bid.

Other journalists and activists, including a German TV crew, have also recently been detained.

How the country handles the media, as it prepares to host one of the world's most watched sporting events, is now also becoming a concern.

Mustafa Qadri, Amnesty International's Gulf migrant rights researcher, told us the detentions of journalists and activists could be attempts "to intimidate those who seek to expose labour abuse in Qatar".

Qatar, the world's richest country for its population size of little more than two million people, is pouring money into trying to improve its reputation for allowing poor living standards for low-skilled workers to persist.

Beitrag Iranische Truppen für den Jemen Antworten mit Zitat
Der Iran mischt sich im Jemen immer fleissiger ein:

Zitat:
Iran has dispatched additional paramilitary forces to Yemen to aid pro-Tehran rebels seeking to take control of the strategic southern Arabian state, according to recent U.S. intelligence reports.

The Iranian leadership earlier this month ordered militants from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force, along with Lebanese Hezbollah fighters, to Yemen, where Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab states are seeking to defeat an insurgency led by Houthi rebels that currently control large parts of the country.

The influx of Iranian forces was outlined in several classified intelligence reports circulated within government over the past two weeks, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.

Beitrag AQAP Antworten mit Zitat
Zur Entstehung der AQAP:

Zitat:
The relationship is similar to those fomented by Cold War-era internecine conflicts in the region. Eager to push back against the perceived threat posed by communism — heightened in north Yemen, then a separate country, by the existence of a Marxist state to its south — a number of regional powers encouraged the spread of hardline religious ideologies in Yemen. Saleh’s predecessor, the Nasserist-leaning Ibrahim al-Hamdi, in the 1970s appointed to a senior religious position the hardline cleric Sheikh Abdulmajid al-Zindani, a controversial figure associated with the Islah party. Zindani and a handful of other members of that party, whose ideology combined Muslim Brotherhood influences with conservative Wahabi theology, has been accused by the United States government of having ties to Al Qaeda. Over the course of the 1980s, Zindani and other clerics publicly urged Yemenis to head to Afghanistan to join the fight against the Soviets.

Not all Yemenis who fought in Afghanistan became members of Al Qaeda, but many returned home radicalized. In the wake of North Yemen’s 1990 unification with the socialist south, these battle-hardened fighters proved a boon as northern forces—split between Saleh’s backers and his then-allies within the Islamist Islah party—jostled to weaken the Socialists and consolidate power in the hands of Sanaa-based elites. Many Afghanistan veterans were resettled in Yemen, some gaining military positions; their support played a key role in the defeat of pro-secession forces in Yemen’s 1994 north-south civil war and, again allegedly, in a campaign of assassinations against leading socialists in the run-up to the war.

Beitrag Saudiarabien und Iran Antworten mit Zitat
Interessantes Interview über die geopolitische Rivalität zwischen Iran und Saudiarabien:

Zitat:
Saudi Arabia "invented" Islamic foreign policy under King Faisal so as to better withstand Arab Nationalist denouncements led by Egyptian President Nasser. It established a whole range of international Islamic organisations and wanted to be seen as the unrivalled leader of the Islamic World. The Islamic Revolution in Iran undermined this notion, because the revolution sought (and in the beginning sometimes did) appeal to all Muslims, regardless of whether they were Sunni or Shia. So the sectarian card was very much a way in which Saudi Arabia (and other Sunni-led states that felt vulnerable to the appeal of the Islamic revolution) could undermine the umma [Muslim]-wide appeal of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Having said that, Iran immediately tried to export its revolution, and found this task easiest amongst Shia groups around the world. Arab Shia were a particular focus of Iran's efforts to export the revolution, as symbolised by the establishing of Hizbullah in Lebanon. But Iran also supported Shia in the Gulf monarchies Kuwait, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. So both sides have in a way led a sectarian foreign policy that has inflamed sectarian relations across the Arab and Islamic worlds.

Nevertheless, the Sunni-Shia rivalry is not the root cause of the Saudi-Iranian rivalry. In many ways, the Sunni-Shia rivalry that we see today is an outcome of the Saudi-Iranian rivalry for regional hegemony.

Beitrag Situation Antworten mit Zitat
Artikel zur Situation im Jemen:

Zitat:
The UAE has deployed over 1,500 of its own troops to the Aden front, the first time the coalition has placed its own ground forces into the battle. The Saudis have trained Hadi loyalists and equipped them with tanks and other armored vehicles to open another front in Marib governorate in the northwest of the country.

The Saudi gains so far have been outside the Zaydi Shiite heartland of the Houthi rebels. Sanaa remains firmly in the rebels' control. The leader of the Zaydi Houthi rebels, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, gave a speech this week to his followers, promising, "We are in a great battle in which we must use all our efforts." He acknowledged the Saudis and their allies had retaken the southern port of Aden but said, "The enemy threw all their weight to gain a limited achievement." Houthi accused the Saudis and their ally, Hadi, of working with both Israel and the Islamic State (IS) to take Aden. He called for an internal Yemeni political solution to the war.

Beitrag Jemen Antworten mit Zitat
Derweil im Jemen:

Zitat:
“The civilian population is bearing the brunt of the conflict — a shocking four out of five Yemenis require humanitarian assistance and nearly 1.5 million people are internally displaced. More than 1,000 children have been killed or injured and the number of young people recruited or used as fighters is increasing,” O’Brien told the U.N. Security Council.

The British diplomat condemned the “disregard for human life by all parties.” He said residential areas and civilian infrastructure have been targeted in attacks. The port of Hodeidah — the main terminus in the north of the country for imports of essential food, medicine and fuel — was put out of service by a Saudi airstrike.

The United Nations has classified Yemen as a “level 3” emergency, the highest possible classification. International Medical Corps says 80 percent of the population of 26 million is in need of humanitarian assistance and 850,000 children are malnourished.

Beitrag Islamistische Milizen Antworten mit Zitat
Immer häufiger werden in Aden islamistische Milizen gesichtet:

Zitat:
In Aden, Yemen's most cosmopolitan city, the masked Islamist gunmen seem to have burst onto the streets from some other world.

They storm university classrooms to demand men and women to stop studying together, charge into supermarkets firing in the air to force the female cashiers to cover up, harass families celebrating a Muslim holiday on the beach.

Three weeks ago, four suicide bombers detonated car bombs at a temporary Yemeni government headquarters and two Arab coalition outposts.

With that, Islamic State served notice that it was bringing its bloody campaign for a Sunni Muslim caliphate to a city where separatist fighters, Arab armies and an embattled rump government had just forced out Shi'ite militiamen. For many residents, it now seems like a baffling conflict is about to enter its darkest phase.

Beitrag Houthis und Saleh Antworten mit Zitat
Ein Artikel zum Bündnis zwischen den Houthis und Saleh:

Zitat:
Then Saleh made a startling statement: “I haven’t previously allied with Ansar Allah,” he said, using the official name of the Houthis. “But I declare today, from this place, that the Yemeni people as a whole would team up with all of those defending this nation.” This was significant; since he was forced to step down in 2012, Saleh had repeatedly denied having any ties with the Houthi uprising, which seized control of the capital in September 2014, but now he was publicly acknowledging for the first time his alliance with the rebels.

Given that Saleh had waged six wars against the Houthis from 2004 to 2010 and was accused of killing the group’s founder in cold blood, his support for the rebels, both clandestine and avowed, naturally led to some questions about the consummate survivor’s motives and the strength of this new alliance.

In order to understand the complex alliances and hostilities in Yemen today, one needs to trace their roots. The intertwined history of Saleh and the Houthis, as well as other major players in Yemen goes back decades.

Beitrag Saudiarabien Antworten mit Zitat
Ein interessanter Hintergrundbericht zum Leben im KSA:

Zitat:
Their embrace of technology runs counter to the history of Wahhabi clerics rejecting nearly everything new as a threat to the religion. Formerly banned items include the telegraph, the radio, the camera, soccer, girls’ education and televisions, whose introduction in the 1960s caused outrage.

For Saudis, trying to navigate what is permitted, halal, and what is not, haram, can be challenging. So they turn to clerics for fatwas, or nonbinding religious rulings. While some may get a lot of attention — as when Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini of Iran called for killing the author Salman Rushdie — most concern the details of religious practice. Others can reveal the sometimes comical contortions that clerics go through to reconcile modernity with their understanding of religion.

There was, for example, the cleric who appeared to call for the death of Mickey Mouse, then tried to backtrack. Another prominent cleric issued a clarification that he had not in fact forbidden all-you-can-eat buffets. That same sheikh was recently asked about people taking photos with cats. He responded that the feline presence was irrelevant; the photos were the problem.
