From Diwan by Fernando Yemen

I really rate these articles, it takes a bit of depth of understanding of Yemeni politics to really understand them, but they really get to the bones of where the tribes morph into Al Qaeda and their look-alikes in Yemen – and I guess, how they can morph back when the time is right.   And how foreign interference, and the conservative Sunni schools – funded by Saudi Arabia – lead to the development of strands of extremist Islamic perspectives in Yemen – and world wide. Thank you Fernando for your powerful insights into Yemen tribes.
