Biden bows to Iran.

Biden Stabs Us All in the Back, Removes Terrorist Designation from Group Whose Motto Means 'Death to America'

The Biden administration on Friday announced that it would no longer designate Yemen’s Iran-supported Houthi movement as a terror group, despite the fact the group’s slogan calls for the death of Americans and Jews.

The terrorist designation was made just last month by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, according to NBC News. It was slated to take effect by the State Department on Jan. 19, the day before President Joe Biden was inaugurated.

The Houthi movement, which is officially called Ansarallah (or Ansar Allah, for “supporters of God”), brags a slogan which reads: “God is great, death to the U.S., death to Israel, curse the Jews, and victory for Islam.”

Designating the Houthis as terrorists would certainly seem appropriate. That slogan doesn’t exactly elicit a great deal of warmth from the group which brags tens of thousands of anti-American and anti-Semitic members.

“These designations will provide additional tools to confront terrorist activity and terrorism by Ansarallah,” Pompeo stated last month when officially designating the group as one motivated by violent ideology, NBC reported.

Apparently, the Trump administration didn’t come to the conclusion lightly. The Houthis are at war with the Yemeni government, and the situation has created a large-scale humanitarian crisis. Still, the move from the outgoing administration was the right call.

The group for more than a decade has armed thousands of children for combat, bombed cities and has targeted religious minorities while essentially being used as a proxy against Yemen’s government for the Iranians.
