The Sawa’a Organization for Anti-Discrimination posted on Facebook on Saturday
that the Yemeni government had stopped payments to Jews who left Saada in 2007,
also complaining that these Jews are still unable to return home because of
religiously motivated violence against them by Shi’ite Houthis.
states that “their return to Saada will be a direct threat to their lives, their
safety and security.”
The organization goes on to say that it demands
that the government restore their allocations for housing and protection. It
also insists they be removed from “what is like house arrest on Yemeni citizens,
who don’t commit an offense.”
These actions “violate the Constitution and
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was ratified by Yemen” and the
“principles of the tolerant Islamic religion,” Sawa’a said.
