…The article highlighted the suffering of Yemeni civilians amid a devastating war pitting Houthi rebels and their allies against a Saudi-led coalition whose campaign of airstrikes, which are aided by American-supplied bombs and intelligence, have killed thousands of civilians.

By Feb. 9, the number of Pegida supporters in Dresden had dropped from 25,000 (Jan. 12) to
2,000. Monday’s march could mark the beginning of the end of a movement that shocked domestic and foreign observers with its loud, anti-Islam message, but also with the more hidden, xenophobic and sometimes openly racist remarks of its supporters.
Why did Pegida lose so many supporters so quickly?
Here are some possible reasons for the sudden decline…more www.washingtonpost.
