Nucleocytoplasmic transport molecules that bind to ALPHA KARYOPHERINS in the CYTOSOL and are involved in transport of molecules through the NUCLEAR PORE COMPLEX. Once inside the CELL NUCLEUS beta karyopherins interact with RAN GTP-BINDING PROTEIN and dissociate from alpha karyopherins. Beta karyopherins bound to RAN GTP-BINDING PROTEIN are then re-transported to the cytoplasm where hydrolysis of the GTP of RAN GTP-BINDING PROTEIN causes release of karyopherin beta.

A molecular analysis of the yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome: SOX10 dysfunction causes different neurocristopathies. (1/103)

The Yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome was first observed in a Yemenite sister and brother showing cutaneous hypopigmented and hyperpigmented spots and patches, microcornea, coloboma and severe hearing loss. A second case, observed in a girl with similar skin symptoms and hearing loss but without microcornea or coloboma, was reported as a mild form of this syndrome. Here we show that a SOX10 missense mutation is responsible for the mild form, resulting in a loss of DNA binding of this transcription factor. In contrast, no SOX10 alteration could be found in the other, severe case of the Yemenite deaf-blind hypopigmentation syndrome. Based on genetic, clinical, molecular and functional data, we suggest that these two cases represent two different syndromes. Moreover, as mutations of the SOX10 transcription factor were previously described in Waardenburg-Hirschsprung disease, these results show that SOX10 mutations cause various types of neurocristopathy.  (+info)

Diabetes and ischemic heart disease among Yemenite immigrants in Israel. (2/103)

BACKGROUND: The pattern of diabetes and ischemic heart disease among emigrants from pre-industrialized societies to more developed countries may be explained by both genetic and environmental factors. OBJECTIVES: To describe and interpret the pattern of diabetes and ischemic heart disease among Yemenite immigrants in Israel and their second-generation offspring. METHODS: Medical record charts of adult Yemenites were surveyed in a primary care health center, and the data were compared with prevalence rates derived from a non-Yemenite population. RESULTS: There was a marked excess of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus among Yemenite immigrants over 45 years of age, but not of hypertension or ischemic heart disease. Yemenites with diabetes were far less likely to develop ischemic heart disease than non-Yemenites with diabetes (odds ratio for non-Yemenites compared with Yemenites, 3.5; confidence interval 1.54 < OR < 7.77). CONCLUSIONS: There was less of an association between diabetes and ischemic heart disease among Yemenites. This finding requires further investigation of the relative roles of genetic and environmental factors.  (+info)

Risk factors for human brucellosis in Yemen: a case control study. (3/103)

Brucellosis is known to occur in Yemen but its epidemiology has not been extensively studied. The present investigation examined risk factors for human brucellosis in Yemen using a hospital-based case-control study. A total of 235 consecutive patients with brucellosis attending the Central Health Laboratory in Sana'a, Yemen, were matched in respect of age, sex, and place of residence, rural or urban, with 234 controls selected from individuals attending the Central Health Laboratory for unrelated health problems. Clinical information on patients and controls was supplemented with occupational and socio-economic data obtained by interview of cases and controls using a standard questionnaire. After controlling for confounding factors significant risk factors for infection related to occupation as a farmer (OR 2.5 (95% CI 1.4-4.5, P < 0.0001)), shepherd (OR 7.8 (95% CI 1.0-61, P 0.05)) or microbiologist (OR 24.5 (95% CI 2.9-204, P 0.003)); and drinking fresh milk (OR 2.0 (95% CI 1.3-4.3, P 0.001)) and laban (OR 22.7 (95% CI 1.7-4.2 P < 0.0001)). Taking other milk products and offal were not risk factors. Socio-economic and educational factors were also independent risk factors. Occupational, food and socio-economic risk factors significantly confounded one another. Yemen shares some but not all of the risk factors of neighbouring countries. The interrelation between the various factors is complex and studying any one in isolation may give a false impression of its public health significance. Control through education of the population to minimize exposure to, and contact with, animals and their milk and milk products and to boil milk before drinking it or using it to make buttermilk, would be difficult as these would represent such fundamental changes to established patterns of behaviour of this society. Ideally there would be a campaign to control the infection by animal vaccination but the costs and logistic difficulty would be great. Presently there is a clear need for doctors in Yemen to be made aware of the frequency of this infection, the means available for clinical and laboratory diagnosis and effective treatment, while strategies to control the disease in Yemen are formulated and field tested.  (+info)

Introduced schistosomiasis. Evaluation as a public health hazard. (4/103)

Schistosomiasis was found in many agricultural workers from Yemen who are residing in the San Joaquin Valley, and a study was done to evaluate the public health hazard of this imported disease. If the necessary intermediate hosts are present, a local focus of infection could be established. Numerous Biomphalaria obstructa snails collected in the vicinity of the Avenue 82 irrigation canal near Oasis, Riverside County, showed no evidence of natural schistosome infection. Laboratory-reared offspring of these snails were exposed to miracidia of Schistosoma mansoni originating from Yemen immigrants and to miracidia from a standard laboratory strain of Puerto Rican origin obtained from the National Institutes of Health. All exposures of California B. obstructa were made with a laboratory stock of highly susceptible B. glabrata snails also obtained from NIH as controls. Although miracidia penetrated California snails no evidence of infection was detected whereas the B. glabrata controls showed normal, mature infections with numerous cercariae.There appears little likelihood that B. obstructa can serve as intermediate host for schistosomiasis.  (+info)

Distinctive genetic signatures in the Libyan Jews. (5/103)

Unlinked autosomal microsatellites in six Jewish and two non-Jewish populations were genotyped, and the relationships among these populations were explored. Based on considerations of clustering, pairwise population differentiation, and genetic distance, we found that the Libyan Jewish group retains genetic signatures distinguishable from those of the other populations, in agreement with some historical records on the relative isolation of this community. Our methods also identified evidence of some similarity between Ethiopian and Yemenite Jews, reflecting possible migration in the Red Sea region. We suggest that high-resolution statistical methods that use individual multilocus genotypes may make it practical to distinguish related populations of extremely recent common ancestry.  (+info)

Outbreak of Rift Valley fever--Yemen, August-October 2000. (6/103)

On September 17, 2000, the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MAI) and Ministry of Health (MOH) of Yemen received reports about the occurrence of disease compatible with Rift Valley fever (RVF) in El Zuhrah district of Hodeidah governorate. Reports of animal disease included abortions and deaths in young animals. Surveillance efforts by MOH and MAI documented widespread disease among humans and animals in the area of Wadi Mawr in El Zuhrah district, which is located on a coastal plain that extends from the southern tip of Yemen into the Jizan area of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health has described a simultaneous outbreak of RVF in the Jizan area in KSA (1,2). This report summarizes the investigation of the Yemen outbreak.  (+info)

High intestinal lactase concentrations in adult Arbs in Saudi Arabia. (7/103)

The maximum rise in blood glucose after 50 g lactose by mouth was determined in 40 adult Arabs. Out of 30 Bedouin, urban Saudi, and Yemeni and 9 of mixed ancestry (usually partly African), 25 (83%) and 2 (22%) respectively showed an increase of over 1-1 mmol/1 (20 mg/100 ml). In common with most northern Europeans and Hamitic people of northern Africa, Arabs in Saudi Arabia usually have high intestinal lactase concentrations in adult life. This persistence of high levels probably originated in the Arabian peninsula. Its selective advantage may have been associated with the fluid and calorie content of camels' milk, which is important for survival in desert nomads.  (+info)

Folk, traditional and conventional medicine among elderly Yemenite immigrants in Israel. (8/103)

BACKGROUND: Migration leads to changes in almost all areas of life including health. But how far are health beliefs also preserved, and how far are they affected by the process of acculturation to the host society? OBJECTIVES: To examine the difference between behavior and attitudes towards conventional and traditional medicine among elderly Yemenite immigrants. METHODS: A community-based study was conducted in the Yemenite neighborhoods in the city of Rehovot. All inhabitants of Yemenite origin over the age of 70 were identified from the population register, excluding those who were institutionalized or demented. Social work students interviewed them at home. The questionnaire inquired after health problems in the preceding month. For each of these problems, the respondent was asked whether any mode of treatment had been employed--Yemenite folk remedies, conventional medical care, or other. Their attitudes towards Yemenite folk medicine and conventional medicine were recorded. Socioeconomic data included their current age, age at immigration, year of immigration, marital status, gender, religiosity, and education. RESULTS: A total of 326 elderly people were identified who fulfilled the selection criteria, of whom 304 (93%) agreed to be interviewed. Of these, 276 (91%) reported at least one health problem in the preceding month, providing 515 problems of which 349 (68%) were reported to a conventional medical doctor while 144 (28%) were treated by popular folk remedies. Fifty-nine problems (11.5%) were treated by specifically Yemenite traditional remedies, mostly by the respondents themselves (38/59) rather than by a traditional healer. Immigrants who arrived in Israel over the age of 30 years, as compared to respondents who immigrated at an earlier age and grew up in Israel, were more likely to use traditional Yemenite remedies (24.4% vs. 8.2%, P < 0.005). CONCLUSION: Aged Yemenite Jews in Israel prefer modern medicine. The earlier the immigrant arrived in Israel, the more positive the attitude towards modern medicine and the less use made of traditional Yemenite healing.  (+info)

This declaration came after the cholera epidemic spread across the capitals districts and neighborhoods, said Yemens health ministry, calling for international organizations to help Yemeni hospitals cope with the unprecedented humanitarian disaster.. The International Committee of the Red Cross warned that Yemens hospitals are struggling to cope with increasing patient numbers.. The first wave of cholera outbreak in Yemen was announced on Oct. 6, 2016 by Yemens Ministry of Public Health and Population.. The WHO warned that Yemens healthcare system is on the verge of collapse as several hospitals have shut down due to the ongoing conflict.. It said only 45 percent of Yemens hospitals are currently operational, yet they face a shortage of supplies and staff.. READ MORE: Putin on Trump-Lavrov meeting: Ill hand over records.

As Yemen faces its fourth year of war, the country also fights a looming health crisis. The cholera health crisis in Yemen affects 22 of 23 governorates and almost 299 of Yemens 333 districts. Recording over one million cholera cases in 2017, Yemens crisis is the worst cholera epidemic on record.. Driven by years of war, the country has experienced a significant collapse in access to food, safe drinking water and health care. With millions of Yemenis facing famine, malnourishment increases the risk of cholera infections becoming fatal.. Many organizations are on the ground in Yemen, treating as many cholera cases as possible. Organizations responding to the health crisis in Yemen include Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) or Doctors Without Borders, Save the Children, Islamic Relief Foundation and World Health Organization (WHO).. If left untreated, the mortality rate of cholera can be very high. With proper treatment, cholera is very easy to cure. The problem is that it is not easy for cholera ...
United Nations officials say Yemen will face the worlds largest famine in decades if the Saudi-led coalition refuses to lift its blockade on deliveries of aid. On Monday, the coalition shut air, land and sea routes into Yemen after Houthi rebels fired a missile that was intercepted near the Saudi capital, Riyadh. Saudi Arabia says its blockade is needed to stop Iran from sending weapons to the rebels. The U.N. says aid agencies were given no prior notice of the Saudi decision to shut down all land, air and seaports in Yemen. Meanwhile, medical experts warn the clampdown will worsen Yemens cholera epidemic, which has sickened more than 900,000 people.

The population of Yemen was about 28 million according to 2016 estimates,[2] with 46% of the population being under 15 years old and 2.7% above 65 years. In 1950, it was 4.3 million.[3][4] By 2050, the population is estimated to increase to about 60 million.[5] Yemenis are mainly of Arab origin.[6] When the former states of North and South Yemen were established, most resident minority groups departed.[7] Yemen is still a largely tribal society.[8] In the northern, mountainous parts of the country, there are some 400 Zaidi tribes.[9] There are also hereditary caste groups in urban areas such as Al-Akhdam.[10] According to the USCRI, Yemen hosted a population of refugees and asylum seekers numbering approximately 69 in 2007. Refugees and asylum seekers living in Yemen were predominantly from Iraq, Somalia, Ethiopia,[11] and Syria.[12] ...
SANAA, Yemen - The International Committee of the Red Cross says around 1 million people in war-ravaged Yemen are believed to have been infected in a cholera outbreak that began last year.. The outbreak, which began in October 2016 and escalated in April, has killed more than 2,000 people.. The Red Cross said Thursday that more than 80 percent of Yemens population lacks food, fuel, clean water and access to medical care.. A Saudi-led coalition has been at war with Iranian-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen since March 2015. The fighting has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced 3 million and damaged critical infrastructure, fueling the cholera outbreak.. Even before the war, Yemen was the Arab worlds poorest country. ...
Whether terrorist groups in Yemen, such as Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), have a long-term ability to threaten U.S. homeland security may determine the extent of U.S. resources committed to counterterrorism and stabilization efforts there. Some believe these groups lack such capability and fear the United States might overreact; others assert that Yemen is gradually becoming a failed state and safe haven for Al Qaeda operatives and as such should be considered an active theater for U.S. counterterrorism operations. Given Yemens contentious political climate and its myriad development challenges, most long-time Yemen watchers suggest that security problems emanating from Yemen may persist in spite of increased U.S. or international efforts to combat them. ...
North Yemen became independent from the Ottoman Empire in 1918. The British, who had set up a protectorate area around the southern port of Aden in the 19th century, withdrew in 1967 from what became South Yemen. Three years later, the southern government adopted a Marxist orientation. The massive exodus of hundreds of thousands of Yemenis from the south to the north contributed to two decades of hostility between the states. The two countries were formally unified as the Republic of Yemen in 1990. A southern secessionist movement and brief civil war in 1994 was quickly subdued. In 2000, Saudi Arabia and Yemen agreed to delineate their border. Fighting in the northwest between the government and the Huthis, a Zaydi Shia Muslim minority, began in 2004 and has since resulted in six rounds of fighting that ended in early 2010 with a cease-fire. The southern secessionist movement was revitalized in 2008. Public rallies in Sanaa against then President SALIH - inspired by similar demonstrations in ...

Sanaa/Amsterdam, 8TH February 2018 - The lives of patients with renal failure are being put at risk as kidney treatment centres in Yemen struggle to function, says international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).. Since the start of the recent conflict in Yemen, four of Yemens 32 kidney treatment centres have been forced to close. The remainder are running out of essential supplies, hindering their ability to provide patients with uninterrupted treatment. Patients, meanwhile, struggle to travel to those centres that still function, as well as to pay for treatment.. Patients with renal failure are dependent on machines to clean their blood, a function normally carried out by the kidneys. Such patients usually attend dialysis sessions three times per week. Across Yemen, this has been reduced to two sessions per week, leading to increased medical side effects, a decreased quality of life and potentially to death.. ...
UN-Habitat established presence in Yemen in 2018. Since then, UN-Habitat has supported the government and people of Yemen to develop Rapid City and Neighbourhood Profiling for 7 cities (Sana, Aden, Taiz, Sadaa, Maarib, Al-Huta and Zinzibar). The city profiling will reflect on the context of Yemen that is suffering from protracted armed conflict since 2015. It will include an analysis on the damage assessment and effect of war on the political, social and economic conditions. The profiling will feed into the national and city recovery plan.. UN-Habitat Yemen is also focusing on helping the most vulnerable, most affected population in a number of cities to rehabilitate damaged housing and community infrastructure facilities and systems; starting with Al-Hudaydah and expanding to other most affected cities, with the aim to provide safe, adequate and dignified living conditions. Given the huge influx of IDPs to urban settings looking for safe heaven, they usually lose their Housing, Land and ...
A community-based cross-sectional household seroepdemiological survey was conducted in the Republic of Yemen to estimate the prevalence of HBV infection as well as hepatitis B vaccine coverage and effectiveness amongst children vaccinated in the countrys Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI). Study subjects were randomly selected from five provinces in the country based on probability proportional to size. The prevalence of HBV chronic infection amongst women of childbearing age participating in the survey was 5.08% and places Yemen amongst the group of countries with a high endemicity of HBV infection (> 5%). This is much lower than earlier estimates by hospital-based studies in Yemen estimating the prevalence of HBV chronic infection to be 12.5-16.6% amongst women of childbearing age. This prevalence estimate is more consistent with research findings from other neighbouring Middle East countries. There was evidence that perinatal transmission is not a major mode of HBV infection in Yemen. ...
Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the Arab world, reported average annual growth in the range of 3-4% from 2000 through 2007. In 2008, growth dropped below 3% as the price of oil declined and the slowing global economy reduced demand for oil. Yemens economic fortunes depend mostly on declining oil resources, but the country is trying to diversify its earnings. In 2006 Yemen began an economic reform program designed to bolster non-oil sectors of the economy and foreign investment. As a result of the program, international donors pledged about $5 billion for development projects. A liquefied natural gas facility is scheduled to open in 2009. Yemen has limited exposure to the international financial system and no capital markets, however, the global financial crisis probably will reduce international aid in 2009 ...
A cholera outbreak in war-ravaged Yemen has killed 242 people, and left nearly 23,500 others sick in the past three weeks alone, the World Health Organization said Friday. The UN health agency said that in the past day alone, 20 cholera deaths and 3,460 suspected cases had been registered in the country, where two-thirds of the population is on the brink of famine. The speed of the resurgence of this cholera epidemic is unprecedented, WHO representative for Yemen Nevio Zagaria told reporters in Geneva by phone from Yemen, warning that a quarter of a million people could become sick by the end of the year. Cholera is a highly contagious bacterial infection spread through contaminated food or water. Reining in the disease is particularly complicated in Yemen, where two years of devastating war between the Huthis and government forces backed by a Saudi-led Arab military coalition has left more than half the country`s medical facilities out of service. Zagaria pointed out that humanitarian workers ...
Yemen - Government and society: The former states of North Yemen and South Yemen had sharply contrasting political systems. North Yemen was a republic governed nominally under a constitution adopted in 1970, suspended in 1974, and largely restored between 1978 and the late 1980s. Although a succession of bodies carried out some of the functions of a legislature, they exercised little real power until the late 1980s. During that period, policy making remained in the hands of a relatively progressive military elite that worked closely with a variety of civilians that included a large and growing group of technocrats, the major tribal leaders, and other
Yemen. On 16 November 2017, WHO reports 120 clinically cases of diphtheria and 14 deaths in past weeks in Yemen, mostly in children. At least one million children are currently at risk of contracting diphtheria as a result of the unavailability of vaccines and medicines in Yemen.. Happiness in a Box! Try now for a limited time! Diphtheria is endemic in Yemen. The last recorded cases were in 2013. According to UNICEF , the percentage of surviving infants who received the 1st and 3rd dose of diphtheria and tetanus toxoid with pertussis containing vaccine (DTP1/DTP3) in the last ten years was between 81% and 88%.. Venezuela. In Venezuela, in 2017, as of week 42, 511 probable diphtheria cases were reported. Samples were taken from 452 of the cases (88.5%), of which 146 (32.3%) were laboratory confirmed (69 by isolation and determination of toxin production by Elek test and 38 by Polymerase Chain Reaction). The confirmed cases were reported in 17 federal entities.. LISTEN: Diphtheria: A short ...
New York) - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Salehs arrival in the United States for medical treatment highlights the need for international action to serve justice for serious crimes in Yemen, Human Rights Watch said today. Saleh arrived in the US on January 28, 2012, to receive treatment for wounds he suffered during an attack on the presidential palace in Yemen in June.. The issue isnt where Saleh gets medical care, but whether concerned governments are going to prevent him and his aides from getting away with the killings of peaceful protesters, said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. International leaders should stand by the Yemeni people and insist on prosecutions of those responsible for last years unlawful attacks.. Saleh arrived in the US one week after Yemens Parliament granted him blanket amnesty and granted all those who served with him immunity from prosecution for political crimes apart from terrorist acts. The immunity deal, which was backed by ...
Background/Aims: Khat is a natural stimulant from the Catha Edulis plant that is cultivated in Yemen and most of East African regions. It is widely used in Yemen as a pass time social habit. Chewing of this cursed plants leaves has been shown to has a direct damaging effect on liver tissue. There are few case reports on the effect of Khat chewing and hepatitis, but this is a retrospective study to investigate this relationship in response to recent case reports from the UK and Australia. Our Aim: was to show the direct relation between the habit of Khat chewing in the region and autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). Methods: This is a retrospective study that analyzed 68 patients who were referred to a tertiary teaching hospital in Sanaa, Yemen, from January 2011 to December 2014 who were diagnosed as an acute autoimmune hepatitis based on serum biochemistry, immunoglobulins, autoantibodies and hepatic viral markers. Khat chewing habit was also recorded. Results: There were 68 patients in this study ...

VB: Have attempts to import necessary lifesaving items been delayed or denied entry and by whom? Could you give an example of those items?. Dr YaH: Oil and basic foodstuffs and 120 pharmaceuticals have been banned from entering Yemen except through very complex conditions and only by the sea not through Sanaa airport which is closed. Because of the U.N Verification and Inspection mechanism imposed on ships entering Djibouti port, medicines remain blockaded there for months and many medicines will have perished by the time they finally enter Yemen, if at all. Wheat, for example, will be rendered inedible after storage in high temperatures. The procedures do nothing more than add cost onto the items for the already poverty-stricken civilians. The closure of Sanaa airport and the transferral of the National Bank to Aden (from Sanaa) also have a negative effect. For kidney treatment, for example, Sirolims, Ticrolims, Brucraf, Salsypt, Kidney Dialysis, Insulin etc we can only provide enough for 5% ...
The war in Yemen has been fought using both economic and military strategies, both of which have contributed to the countrys descent into famine. The belligerents have conducted the war with good knowledge of how their actions will cause mass starvation. The greatest responsibility for the famine lies with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, followed by the Houthi militia and other armed groups. Yemen was already a poor country with a fragile economy, and before the war there was pervasive hunger, especially in rural areas. The war and targeted economic measures created another layer of food crisis: wider, deeper and more lethal.. The famine in Yemen has elements of both food supply decline and collapse in real demand (peoples ability to purchase food). It has many causes. First, are underlying economic vulnerabilities, including poverty, dependence on a few key economic sectors, and political tensions that have recurrently contributed to the worsening of the economy. Second, are the ...

The scale and severity of Yemens humanitarian crisis are staggering, and both will only continue to worsen unless the situation changes dramatically and very soon. Not only are the lives of millions of people at risk of being lost right now, but the future development and health of an entire generation are being destroyed as well. Even if the immediate crisis is addressed with an end to the blockade and a massive infusion of aid, Yemen will be living with the destructive effects of this intervention for decades. If the international response remains as limited and halting as it has been, Yemen will suffer massive loss of life from a man-made famine that need never have happened and could have been prevented. This is what the Saudis and their allies have wrought with our governments help.. Read more. ...

The World Food Programmes recent decision to suspend humanitarian food assistance in Sanaa City, and unrelated, temporary reductions in the size of food assistance distributions expected nationwide as a result of temporary funding gaps, are raising high concerns that many Yemenis will begin to face increasing food consumption gaps in the coming months. WFP indicates its decision to suspend assistance in Sanaa City is based on difficulty receiving permission to assess and reach worst-affected populations in Sanaa City and to implement a bio-registration system for beneficiaries to improve accountability of operations. Humanitarian access to and independent assessment of worst-affected populations nationwide must be established, and the resumption of assistance to previous levels is critically needed to prevent a further deterioration of outcomes.. For more than two years, Yemen has faced the largest food security emergency in the world and continues to face a risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5) in a ...
These are believed to be the first published data on HBsAg and anti-HCV among pregnant women in Yemen. The main finding of the study was the high prevalence of HBsAg and anti-HCV (10.8% and 8.5%) among pregnant women in this setting. The prevalence of HBsAg and anti-HCV among these pregnant women was higher than the prevalence of these markers among healthcare workers in large hospitals in Sanaa [54/543 (9.9%) and 19/546 (3.5%)] [18], Ibb (1.81% and 1.99%) [19], and Aden [20].. Recent reports have documented a lower prevalence of HBsAg and anti-HCV among pregnant women in different countries; for example, 4.0% and 6.4% in Egypt [12], 4.6% and 7.0% in Pakistan [13], 2.8% and 0.1% in Turkey [14], 1.53% and 0.31% in Afghanistan [15], and 5.6% and 0.3% in Sudan [16]. A finding similar to that by Elsheikh et al., in this study is that none of the patients were infected by both HBV and HCV [16].. The current study showed that circumcision was significantly associated with HBsAg seropositivity, and ...

The Arab Barometer is a multicountry social survey designed to assess citizen attitudes about public affairs, governance, and social policy in the Arab World, and to identify factors that shape these attitudes and values. In this first round of the Arab Barometer, respondents in the countries of Jordan, Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Yemen, Bahrain and Palestine were queried regarding (1) economic questions, (2) evaluation of political institutions, political participation, and political attitudes, (3) identity and nationalism, (4) politics and religion, (5) religiosity, and (6) the Arab world and international affairs. In regards to economic questions, respondents were asked to give their opinion on the current overall and future economic condition of their countries, and the current economic situation of their families. On the topic of evaluation of political institutions, political participation, and political attitudes, respondents gave their opinions on how much trust they had in political ...

Demonstrators attacked the U.S. embassies in Yemen and Egypt on Thursday in protest at a film they consider blasphemous to Islam, and the United States sent warships toward Libya, where the U.S. ambassador was killed in related violence this week.
The high prevalence of lactase persistence (LP) among the people of Saudi Arabia is associated with the -13915G variant allele upstream of the lactase gene (LCT). We, therefore, examined the frequency of the commonly known LP associated SNPs among randomly collected samples from Omani and Yemeni adult populations and obtained further data on the distribution of the two most common LP-associated variants, -13910T and -13915TG, in the Arabian Peninsula. The DNA fragment containing all the reported LP- associated SNPs was amplified and genotyped. The frequency of the -13915G allele was highest among Dhofari Arabs of southern Oman (0.72) followed by Yemeni Arabs (0.54) and Arabs of northern Oman (0.14). It was not detected in Omanis of Asian origin. The frequency of the -13910T allele was extremely low in Arabs of northern and southern Oman (0.00 - 0.01) and Yemenis (0.002). However, it had a frequency of 0.160 among Omanis of Asian origin. Results show that the highest frequency of the LCT -13915G variant
The taxonomy of buthid scorpions belonging to the genus Leiurus Ehrenberg, 1828 is reviewed. Four new species are described from the Arabian Peninsula: L. macroctenus sp. n. from coastal fog deserts in Oman; L. haenggii sp. n. from mountains of the Red Sea coast, Hadramaut and Dhofar, in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Oman; L. arabicus sp. n. from the central Najd Plateau and eastern plains in Saudi Arabia; and L. heberti sp. n. from Jabal Samhan in Oman. L. brachycentrus (Ehrenberg, 1829) stat. n. from the Tihamah plain of the Red Sea coast in Saudi Arabia and Yemen is restored from synonymy and redescribed. Leiurus nasheri Kovařík, 2007 was found to be a junior synonym of L. brachycentrus stat. n. L. quinquestriatus hebraeus (Birula, 1908) is elevated to species level as L. hebraeus (Birula, 1908) stat. n. Revised diagnoses are given for L. quinquestriatus (Ehrenberg, 1828), L. abdullahbayrami Yağmur, Koç et Kunt, 2009, L. jordanensis Lourenço, Modrý et Amr, 2002, and L. hebraeus (Birula, ...
A rapprochement with long-time rival Iran, which is backing opposing forces in the Yemen proxy war and in Syria, could ease political and economic pressures on both sides, analysts say. Although the struggle for regional supremacy has long defined Saudi-Iran relations, the extent of the turmoil in neighbouring countries might have led to the realisation that both would benefit from a thaw.. There is a political dilemma where the Saudis are playing a role in Syria and Yemen ... It is straining Riyadh politically and economically, and [in both] places, Iran is playing an important role, said Mahjoob Zweiri, an associate professor of contemporary Middle East history at Qatar University.

By Fr. Daniel White. On March 4th, four religious sisters of the Missionaries of Charity-the religious community founded by soon-to-be Saint Teresa of Calcutta-were brutally murdered in Yemen for doing nothing other than serving Jesus in the poorest of the poor. The attackers gained access to the sisters facility by posing as friends and relatives of the homes elderly and disabled residents.. It is not yet clear who exactly is responsible for this atrocity. Yemen, though, is in the midst of a civil war that is religious in nature. Moreover, the conflict is being taken advantage of by outsider groups like ISIS and al-Qaida. These facts and details about the attack itself strongly suggest that it was religiously motivated. A clearer contrast between true and false religion could not be imagined. The sisters were serving the humble of this world. In them was verified the scripture, Not minding lofty things, but associating with the humble (Rom 12:16). In contrast to the sisters, the ...

So Ostrer and his colleagues gathered new DNA samples from Jews living everywhere from Morocco to Yemen. Using three distinct strategies for identifying genetic similarities, including a method called identity by descent (IBD) that can determine how closely related two individuals are, the team compared these DNA samples to each other, to the samples from their 2010 study, and to samples from non-Jews. Most of the sampled groups shared genetic features, indicating a common heritage dating back to before Roman times, the team reports today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. North African Jews-and Moroccan/Algerian Jews in particular-showed a close genetic connection to Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews, and little evidence of interbreeding with contemporary non-Jewish populations in North Africa. Georgian Jews shared genetic features with Middle Eastern Jews, instead. Yemenite Jews were distantly related to Middle Eastern Jews, while Ethiopian Jews formed their own cluster and ...

Regarding the urheimat of the Arab ethnos: the traditional theory, which dates to the 19th century and became dominant in the middle of the 20th century, holds that Arabs were a Semitic wave from the Arabian peninsula who infiltrated Syria. The traditional theory does not explain the early presence of the Arabs in the Levant as it lacks the evidence for when and how they allegedly arrived from Arabia.[44] Macdonald noted that there is no evidence proving that the inhabitants of the Arabian Peninsula, especially modern Yemen, in the early Hellenistic period (fourth century BC), used the designation Arab, and that it took several centuries for this ethnic name to be adopted by the majority of the peninsulas inhabitants.[45] The historian David Frank Graf considered the traditional theory inadequate for explaining the Arab presence in the Near East. Graf noted the 4th century BC evidence from Edom, south of the historical region of Syria, represented in a collection of ostraca, which show that ...
Other than just being patently ridiculous, this viewpoint - on Rashi in particular - which I have heard many times, expresses a deep-seated, myopic superiority complex the part of the Ashkenazi world. This attitude borders on racism and many times blossoms into that in practicality. What I mean is that there were places in the world where Rashi wasnt even studied by adult Torah scholars, let alone by every child. One such prominent example is that of the Yemenite community. In Yemen, the children learned Tanakh, Targum Onkelos, and the Tafsir of Saadia HaGaon. And do not think that it was because they were some sort of Middle Eastern hicks who didnt know better and had a limited access to seforim. This is untrue. Although many repeat this lie, it remains a lie. And the Yemenites are not the only community. There were others in the non-European dominated areas of the Jewish world that did not standardize Rashis peshat (which is really not that at all), but saw it as just another ...
Ethiopia has a proud and long history. In the Bible, it is known as, the land of Cush, named after Noahs grandson. Semitic people-groups have populated Ethiopia for quite some time. Semites from Saba (modern-day Yemen on the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula) were the descendants of Joktan (Genesis 10:26). They made their way across the narrow Red Sea and settled in the northern highlands of Ethiopia. Today, the majority of northern Ethiopians descends from these Joktan-clan Semites and are known as the Amhara. Their Hebrew-sounding language, Amharic, has become the dominant language in all of Ethiopia.. The Queen of Sheba is often depicted in Ethiopian art and folklore. According to Ethiopian history, she was a Sabean queen. She visited Solomon to hear his wisdom and, upon her return to Ethiopia, she gave birth to a son, Menelik (meaning from the king). At twenty years of age, Menelik traveled from Ethiopia to his fathers courts in Israel. There, he was recognized by Solomon and was ...

The timing is horrendous, because the farmers are just planting, and the seedlings are just coming up now since its the beginning of the rainy season, says Keith Cressman, the UNs Food and Agriculture Organisations (FAOs) Senior Locust Forecasting Officer.. The February to May rainy season is the ideal time for farmers to plant crops, with harvesting anticipated from June to early July, which is precisely when the next swarm generation of locusts will be forming. The rains have been good this year, and the damp, humid conditions are perfect for locust eggs to hatch.. The desert locust is considered the most destructive migratory pest in the world. The current outbreak begun with heavy rains from two cyclones in May and October 2018 on the southern Arabian Peninsula. To date the locusts have spread through Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen, and over the Persian Gulf.. A single swarm covering one square kilometre contains up to 80 million ...

The Trump administration has approved the deployment to Saudi Arabia of Air Force F-15s, new air defense systems, and other military hardware, along with U.S. troops to operate and maintain those weapons systems. These new measures the Pentagon announced on October 11 will bring the total U.S. troop deployment to the kingdom to 3,000 since a mid-September attack on Saudi oil facilities. Speaking to reporters after the announcement, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that it is now clear that Iranians are responsible for the attacks and warned that Washington has additional units on alert that can provide increased security to both the U.S. forces and Saudi Arabia if necessary.. U.S. leaders have taken an unsavory step deepening Washingtons support of an odious, duplicitous Saudi regime that brutalizes its own people and has committed an appalling array of war crimes in Yemen. It also puts the United States in the middle of an escalating political and military confrontation between Saudi ...

A draft document contains a pledge not to export arms to countries involved in the war in Yemen - a pledge seemingly targeted at Saudi Arabia
British arms sales to Saudi Arabia will face a parliamentary inquiry after concerns were raised about the role of UK-made weapons in the ongoing conflict in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia has been the kingpin of American strategy toward Iran. Any loosening of Washingtons ties with Riyadh is bound to redound to Tehrans benefit.. The pre-dawn attacks on September 14 knocked out more than half of the Saudi oil output, or about 5.7 million barrels per day amounting to five percent of the global oil supply. This daring attack was claimed by the Houthis of Yemen but blamed on Iran by Saudi Arabia and the United States brought the Middle East to the brink of war. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in his initial statement held Iran responsible for the attack. President Donald Trump, while implying that Iran was the culprit, sent mixed messages. On the one hand, he declared that the United States is locked and loaded to retaliate for the attack. On the other, he stated that he would like to avoid war with Iran and would defer to the Saudis in making a decision about identifying the source of the attack.. On September 18, the Saudi defense ministry declared that the attack ...
I am reminded of the story - fact or fiction - of Israeli jet fighters making their own statement by not only overflying Saudi Arabia, but daring to touch down on their runways before lifting off again to the skies. I am reminded of our daring flight to Uganda to save the hostages in Entebbe; of our flights to Ethiopian and Yemen to bring the persecuted Jews of those communities home. I am reminded of our flying in to Iraq to bomb the beginnings of their nuclear reactor; of our flying in to Argentina to kidnap and bring Adolf Eichmann to justice. I am reminded of a few years ago, as Elie was on the Syrian border, of our planes flying overhead to bomb the beginnings of what would have been a Syrian nuclear reactor.. It is arrogance on my part to laugh at the Saudi threat; to wonder if they would even have, in the blink of an eye, the time to identify the Israeli jets, let alone scramble and catch them. Of course, it is arrogance. The Saudis have advanced warning systems - thanks to their allies ...

The second Semitics scholar I consulted with was Dr. K. Lawson Younger Jr., Professor of Old Testament, Semitic Languages and Ancient Near Eastern History at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Both Semitics scholars, independently of each other, concluded that this unprovenanced sculpture is most likely a crude modern day forgery. In personal correspondence with the author, Macdonald wrote: I am almost certain that the sculpture is a fake. Quite a lot of these very crude carvings are appearing on the market nowadays but they bear no relation to the types of ancient Arabian sculptures found in scientific archaeological excavations. The two letters [on the obverse side] have genuine shapes, but this is not a surprise since published script tables of the ancient scripts are widely distributed in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. I have come across small boys in remote villages able to write their names in the ancient scripts ...
I dont see how J1 or J2 are anything but non-semitic. Of course this tends to hurt feelings, but E1b1b1 are the strongest candidates for the original language bearers. THat said, I dont think its possible to prove any language family had only 1 broad hg assigment to it. I know Dienekes view is that of Semites coming out of southern Arabia around the time of the Phoenicians as the Greeks noted heavy immigration/settlement from that region. This doesnt mean they were semitic speakers, and unless the Greeks were unaware, Proto-NW Semitic seems to have been spoken 500-1000 years earlier among the Amorites of Syria who were recorded as warrior elites among the Sumerians, rather than people who replaced the population. Again, this hurts feelings because there is racist sentiment, even among *certain* groups that feel E1b1b1 cant be anything but black African. Its a possible scenario that Arabian/Yemen E1b1b1/J1 were already immigrating to the north in prehistory and settling in Syria, but again, ...

Australias election to membership of the controversial, 47-nation UN Human Rights Council is a significant success for Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and the protracted global campaign waged by our diplomats to win the seat. There should be no illusion about the challenge we face, however, in achieving what Ms Bishop has rightly identified as one of our main goals in joining: achieving long-overdue reform of a body whose hypocritically pontificating membership includes some of the worlds most egregious human rights abusers, ever ready to point fingers at others. States such as Venezuela, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, China and Egypt have helped ensure, as US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has pointed out, the councils focus is perpetually on denouncing the purported human rights depredations of one country, Israel. At the same time, the council has been far less concerned about atrocities such as the bloodbaths in Syria and Yemen and the plight of Myanmars Rohingya minority ...

These terrorist organizations arent ingrained into the power structure of any specific country. When we went into Iraq we destabilized the place and greatly weakened them. They used to be one of the best countries in the region to keep terrorists out and we ruined all that. What are we supposed to do against ISIS? Go back into Iraq for the next 30 years? How about Syria? Jordan? Iraq? Lebanon? Saudi Arabia? Yemen? If we actually want to wipe these groups out we need to go in and conquer pretty much every single country. Then we need to stay there for several generations while we forcefully change their culture.
