The crushing of the indigenous Palestinian national liberation movement has brought "peace" to Palestine. Yes indeed- however we have seen how the Jewish colonial project has reacted to that "peace" by ever more land grabs and ever more cruelty. You believe that the people of the Levant should just lie and down die in the face of Western Imperialism and it's allies in the region basically. Of course the conflict between the Axis of Resistance and Saudi State et al has nothing or at least very little to do with the Theological divide between the Sunnis and the Shia. The Houthis have a great relationship with the resistance movement against the tyranny inside Saudi Arabia. It is a conflict over basically ideas of social justice and national freedom, two things that Seppos and what is called Zionism (mistakenly in my opinion- one of the things Bibi has done is kill Zionism, Blue and White are it's last pathetic gasp) does not want for the region. You wrongly believe that a strong and free Middle East is totally incompatible with the interests of Palestinian Jews- however you regard Palestinian Jews as having the duty to maintain a safe haven for Jews in the West in case their criminals provoke a back lash against Jews in general, and so therefore their cultural and ethical degradation is not only acceptable but a positive good in your eyes. They do not exist as people in their own right to you anymore than Yemenites do. You are one to talk about hypocrisy and self-deception.You see these propagandists are in reality less concerned with "human rights" than with creating disadvantage for one side and advantage for the other. - If they are "anti-imperialists" will their voice not be much more effective if they are speaking to their own comrades? Then let them call to their own side to desist and work towards peace. Of course at the end of the day the de-escalation of hostilities be the best thing for "human rights".
But they will never do this I well know. I can well see this, and the hypocrisy and self-deception rankles.
