Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Yemen’s President Hadi steps down, parliament rejects resignation

BBC News - Yemen crisis: President resigns as rebels tighten hold
Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour HadiThe president of Yemen has resigned along with his prime minister in protest at the takeover of the capital Sanaa by Shia Houthi rebels, creating a dangerous political vacuum.
President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi said he could not continue after the Houthis failed to honour a peace deal.
Parliament has reportedly refused to accept the resignations.
Rebel figures publicly welcomed the resignations with one proposing the creation of a ruling council.
The council would include Houthi-led groups, Abu al-Malek Yousef al-Fishi was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency.
Houthi leaders had previously committed themselves to withdrawing from key positions around the presidential palace and the home of President Hadi.
The US, which is helping fight al-Qaeda militants in Yemen, said it was still assessing the implications of President Hadi's move.
PressTV-Yemen president steps down
Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi has resigned after Shia Ansarullah revolutionaries seized the presidential palace in the capital, Sana’a.
On Thursday, President Hadi submitted his resignation to the Yemeni parliament shortly after the cabinet of Prime Minister Khaled Bahah stepped down to avoid being dragged into what he called “an unconstructive political maze that is not based on law or order.”
Reports say the Yemeni parliament has rejected Hadi’s resignation, calling for an emergency session on Friday.
On Wednesday, the Yemeni government and Ansarullah Shia fighters of the Houthi movement agreed on a ceasefire deal to stop clashes in the country.

The pro-American president of Yemen abruptly resigned Thursday night along with his prime minister and cabinet, leaving his Houthi opponents the dominant force in a leaderless country that is a breeding ground for Al Qaeda.
The Houthis, who are allied with Iran, have been strongly critical of the United States, particularly opposing Yemen’s cooperation with drone strikes against the Qaeda affiliate here, Al Qaeda in Yemen. At the same time, the Houthis, whose leaders are members of the Zaydi sect of Shiite Islam, are bitter opponents of Al Qaeda, which is Sunni.
The resignation of President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi came immediately after an apparently unsuccessful meeting between government and Houthi representatives, brokered by the United Nations special envoy to Yemen, Jamal Benomar. It was intended to help carry out an agreement between the two sides that had been reached a day earlier.
