Israel fears for Yemen’s Jews

There are fewer than 100 Jews left in Yemen. They’re not trapped. No. They like it there. And have refused offers from the Israel government and the Jewish Agency to get them out. But now, they are trapped in the middle of a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. They recognize the increased danger. They say their travel has been limited by circumstances. But still; they don’t want to go.

Saudi Arabia launches airstrikes in Yemen; is Iran next?

Saudi Arabia says it is defending the legitimate government of Yemen. And is conducting airstrikes against rebel positions near that nation’s capital. The Saudi ambassador to the United States says this military action will be limited in scope. But it raises the specter of possible Saudi involvement should there be a military strike against Iran to prevent it from completing its nuclear weapons program.
