    Did the Houthis attack Russian vessels after they attacked Ukraine? I don’t actually know, so just curious.

      They didn’t, no. What makes the Israel-Palestine conflict more in the Houthi’s interest in comparison to the Russian occupation of Ukraine is their ties and support to Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah.

        And that Palestine is literally next door. It might be considered yet another genocide in the West, but people care much more in the Middle East. There’s a lot of popular will to do anything to fight Israel (the reason nobody’s going to war over this is the aircraft carriers and other US pressure), geopolitics or no geopolitics.

      Nope, but Palestine is literally next door. Western people might not understand this, but people in the Middle East care a lot about the Israeli occupation and its injustice against Palestinians. They’re regularly referred to as “our Palestinian brothers” for example, while Ukraine is a country most people here only know by name.

        Yes, westerners absolutely do not understand this.
