Mohammad Ali al-Houthi, a ‘peace’ contributor to the ultra-liberal publication, appears to be seen chanting, “Allah is the greatest. Death to America. Death to Israel. Curse the Jews. Victory to Islam'” according to Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel.
“He has also taken to his unverified but media– and think tank-cited Twitter account to repeat the infamous Houthi slogan,” according to the report.
The video was posted to Twitter by Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Michael Doran, who served as a senior director in the National Security Council.
“Ali Shihabi, the founder of the Arabia Foundation, a Washington D.C.-based Middle East think tank, confirmed to Conservative Review that it is indeed al-Houthi in the video,” Conservative Review added.
“Shihabi tells CR that it is ‘documentary evidence of the type of leader’ that the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen is up against, whom ‘many critics have ignored.'”
Al-Houthi is the head of the Houthis’ Supreme Revolutionary Committee, which is an Iranian-backed rebel group, Schachtel reported.
Despite the rebel leader’s radical views, The Washington Post published an op-ed by him on November 9, giving him a broad platform.
The editor of the op-ed was Karen Attiah, “a passionate advocate for the controversial slain Saudi activist Jamal Khashoggi, who in his last days worked as a de facto asset to the Qatari and Turkish regimes,” Schachtel wrote.
In a tweet identified by Conservative Review as belonging to al-Houthi, the Islamic leader wrote, according to a translation provided by Twitter, “Allahu Akbar death to America death to Israel curse the Jews victory for Islam”

It doesn’t surprise many people that the Post would allow such a man to spew his ‘opinions’ and give him a platform that appears legitimate.
The publication has been caught recently running an outright false report or subtly inflicting leftist bias on its readers.
Likewise, the publication added information about Brett Kavanaugh’s coaching in a section of the paper under ‘public safety,’ which many people argued slandered the newest Supreme Court Justice.
The paper said it was a placement error, but was it?
The fact that the paper would allow a person who hates America to contribute, speaks volumes about its own priorities, many people believe.
