Yemen is an important pillar of Arab national security due to its cultural and historical heritage, which has made it a coveted colonial power throughout the ages. Its geographic location also serves as a strategic depth for the Arab world in general and the Gulf states in particular.

In his book "The Role of the Restoration of Legitimacy in Yemen in Enhancing Arab National Security", issued by the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research, in 2017, Dr. Jamal Sanad Al-Suwaidi focused on the Yemen issue. 

A book confirms:
The author believes that the intervention of the Arab coalition countries in Yemen is an important historic opportunity that must be exploited properly to restore legitimacy within Yemen, allowing for the reconstruction of an Arab military force capable of defending Arab national security.

The author considered that there are many dangers facing the region, which emphasizes the need to form that force, including the complex scenarios that await the Middle East, especially in the light of conflicts in the region, indicating the importance of preparing for any possible future event.

The author relies in his book on a study based on six hypotheses linked to each other. The first is that the Houthi coup on constitutional legitimacy in Yemen is not only a threat to the stability of the Yemeni state, but it is an attack on national security and the Arab national security altogether. 

The second is that the Houthis are working to control the situation in Yemen, in implementation of the Iranian plan, which aims to control and dominate the Arab region, in order to implement the dream of expansion of the regime of Khamini in the region.

The third hypothesis is the inevitable presence of the Arab military intervention in Yemen, especially since the Houthi militias rejected all solutions to the peaceful settlement of the crisis and insisted on continuing their terrorist operations, thinking that they might succeed in implementing the Iranian plan. 
A book confirms:
The fourth hypothesis is that the Arab military intervention in the crisis came as a quick blow to Iran's intellectual and doctrinal project within the Arab region, which worked to fragment and divide Arab states.

The fifth hypothesis confirms that the Arab alliance countries have contributed to reviving the concept of Arab and collective national security after years of Arab disputes. The last assumption is that the Arab military alliance can be considered as a nucleus that can be built upon to form an Arab force.

The book has shown the danger of sectarian thought. Although Iranians who believe in the ten-year-old Shi’ite ideology and the Houthis of the Zaydi-Shiite ideology differ, Iran is supporting them, pushing them out of the political and security regimes of the countries in which they live.
