Houthi Islamic Scholar Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi taught his followers that “Allah brought coronavirus” upon the West and China as punishment for having passed legislation against Hijabs.
“Lo and behold, now they are wearing face masks,” Al-Ubeidi confidently tells his audience. “They are all hiding behind these masks scared of this disease.”
Al-Ubeidi ended his speech by leading the raucous crowd with chants of “Death to America. Death to Israel. Cursed be the Jews! Victory to Islam!”
While Al-Ubeidi may appear to have a convincing argument for fellow Muslims, the Houthi scholar would have to discount the thousands of coronavirus dead that are devout Muslims.
Then again, when have Islamic extremists like Al-Ubeidi been interested in the fact.
