Another sham ally--Yemen

Surprise, it's another Muslim 'ally', a supposed 'friend' of the west and (at best) a nominal ally in the "War on Terror", that is in reality very hostile to Enlightenment Values. Imagine that, a Muslim country that's more loyal to Seventh Century (i.e. Islamic) values than to Kafir ones.

Today's sham ally is Yemen (yes, the same country that brought the world the attack on the USS Cole, and the bin Laden family hails from this despicable place). Here's what these bastards have been up to lately:

Yemeni journalist imprisoned for defaming Islam

A Yemeni newspaper editor has begun serving a year in prison for reprinting the Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.Kamal al-Aalafi, the editor, said the verdict “takes Yemen back to totalitarian rule, contradicts freedom of expression, and represents a real violation of democracy and freedom of the press,” he told reporters.

The court that handed down the sentence also ordered the closure for six months of al-Aalafi’s Al-Ra’i al-Am independent weekly and forbade the editor from writing for the same period.

Al-Aalafi was transferred to prison immediately after sentencing – to the shock of fellow journalists and human rights activists who attended the court session.
...
At least 100 journalists in Yemen have faced various forms of harassment over the past year, ranging from beatings and arrests to kidnappings and a letter-bombing that wounded a newspaper editor...

With 'friends' like Yemen, who needs enemies?

How can anyone out there think that Yemen is a friend? So many idiot minds out there, it's staggering.

I can recall my ship, the USS LaSalle, being in Yemen for fuel. The place had a bad odor.
