Undue fears, baseless enmity and unwarranted hatred, coupled with a tyrannical nature to deprive others of their rights and to mercilessly torture and kill them for demanding these denied rights; whether such evil traits are found in an individual or a group of persons who constitute a government or more properly an oppressive minority regime over a tract of land with the support of foreigners, is a recipe for self-destruction which eventually happens, sooner rather than later.
The above mentioned devilish characteristics are hallmarks of the Aal-e Khalifa rulers of pirate origin of the Persian Gulf island of Bahrain, where the regime, blind to the realities of the region and totally deaf to the voices of the Bahraini people, recently held a weird conference dubbed "Maritime and Aviation Security Working Group”, which among other dubious elements from a few countries was attended by a senior representative of the archenemy of Islam, Muslims, and Arabs, the illegal Zionist entity called Israel.
The main agenda of the two-day Washington-blessed conference, as the morbidly obese foreign minister of Bahrain, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Aal-e Khalifa, smilingly said while warmly shaking hands on the opening day, Monday, with his dear friend Dana Benvenisti, the Israeli foreign ministry official who heads the counter-terrorism department, is the "Iranian threat in the Persian Gulf.”
Irrespective of the fact that Iran has the longest coastline on the Persian Gulf, greater in length than the combined coastlines of the seven other littoral states – Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE, and Oman – why would the Islamic Republic disturb the peace and stability of a waterway through which the bulk of its petroleum and other exports pass, in addition to the imports of a variety of goods that are offloaded daily at its busy ports from the Strait of Hormuz to the Arvandroud?
And suppose, even if Iran, whose system of government is a model for many regional states and the popular movements in the neighbourhood and which in addition to its resolute defence of its national sovereignty and territorial integrity, is known for its rationale policies of peace, stability, and removal of all outside powers trying to stir up sedition, were to suddenly change its course to aggression against neighbours, can Israel, aware of its precarious existence on Palestinian soil, protect Bahrain and its accomplices, when the Manama-based American 5th Fleet cannot?
The answers are obvious. But for those whose mental faculties are completely taken over by Satan, the realities never dawn and instead of rectifying their crooked behaviour, repenting of their misdeeds, and reforming themselves on the basis of the dynamic laws of Islam, such regimes, as the one in Bahrain, turn to the devils in Washington, London, and Tel Aviv, in the vain hope of survival, which is against the laws of nature, in view of the vociferous demands for democracy of the Bahraini people.
Bahrain’s main opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, has slammed the repressive Aal-e Khalifa minority regime for hosting an Israeli official and for unnecessary provoking Iran by "destabilization in the region.”
It said, these criminal measures of the clique in Manama do not reflect the views of the general public in Bahrain.
Hamas spokesman Hazim Qasim also denounced the Aal-e Khalifas saying that parties that normalise relations with the Zionists are accomplices in the Israeli assaults on the Palestinian people and the Islamic holy sites. He said any attempt to "integrate the Israeli occupation into the region are doomed to fail.”
To sum up the outcome of the questionable meeting in Manama in which the majority of European states have declined to participate, in the words of Hussein Amir-Abdollahian, the Iranian Majlis Speaker’s Special Advisor for International Affairs: "The Bahrain conference will provide the grounds for the end of the ruling regime.”
