Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a top member in the Supreme Political Council, had mocked the US Department of State’s efforts to place Ansarullah on a list of terrorist organisations
Al-Houthi considered that the term “terrorism” is something that America can not define, as has became clearly revealed.
“This term is raised in the face of those who reject America’s policies in killing and oppressing people, including the people of Yemen and others,” al-Houthi said.
In a tweet, he said that “the term terrorism is frequently used by Trump and successive US administrations. Trump even used this term against the protesters in the United States.”

Al-Houthi stressed that the term “terrorism” cannot provide legitimacy for anyone in targeting Yemen.
He said what the Trump administration is considering in terms of foreign interference and invasion, and everything the US is doing against Yemen, is an unjustified aggression.
“We do not care how America designated us, because in our view it is a killer of the Yemeni people and it is the one who kills and besieges our people. It is the Trump administration that rejected even the decision of Congress to stop the aggression against our country and stop supporting the Saudi Wahhabis.”
Mohammed Ali al-Houthi revealed the extent of the contradiction in US policy, pointing out that if the Trump administration views Ansarullah as terrorists, it should reconsider its own allies who killed Khashoggi and support terror worldwide as terrorists too.
He added that “the US administration should then also not sign peace with the Taliban, which was once described as a terrorist organisation.”
Al-Houthi continued: “The American administration destroyed the world because of the Taliban and lost 12 trillion dollars – as Trump said. But afterwards, the US talked and signed agreement with the Taliban leaders, when they had become knights of peace in their eyes.”
“All of this is completely contrary to what America declares, and it confirms that all its terms are political terms used only in order to justify its aggression, invasion and occupation of other countries,” Mohammed Ali al-Houthi concluded.
