MANAMA (Press TV) – Bahrain’s main opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, has once again condemned normalization of ties between the Zionist and Manama regimes, stressing that the deal lacks the Bahraini nation’s support and runs counter to the kingdom’s constitution.
In a series of tweets, al-Wefaq said its Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Hussein al-Daihi had contacted senior leaders of various Palestinian factions to assure them of the Bahraini people’s unwavering support for the Palestinian cause in the face of the occupation.
The al-Wefaq leader denounced the ruling Al Khalifah regime’s actions and termed them as invalid and contrary to the principles of Bahraini people.
Daihi further said that the Manama regime’s steps "lack popular and constitutional acceptance” and are "beyond the popular will and approval.”
He said there is "a national consensus” on the rejection of any normalization with the occupying regime.
The Palestinian leaders, in turn, praised the Bahraini nation’s firm stance towards the Palestinian cause and their support for the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights.
They said they were fully aware of the genuine position of Bahrainis, who oppose normalization with the occupying regime.
Al-Wefaq has called for nationwide rallies in Bahrain on Friday in protest at the U.S.-brokered normalization agreements with the occupying regime.
Over the past weeks, several anti-normalization demonstrations have been held in Bahrain, which has harshly suppressed dissent since 2011.
On Sunday, Bahraini and Zionist officials signed a joint communiqué establishing full diplomatic relations. Manama and Tel Aviv regime are now expected to open embassies.
An Israeli delegation flew on an El Al Israel Airlines charter flight from Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, to Bahrain and was accompanied by U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin.
On the same day, al-Wefaq called on the United Nations to intervene in the kingdom’s unbridled push to deepen its relations with the Zionist regime as more than 95% of the people are against the normalization with the Zionists and amid the absence of any authority representing the people.
