Zionist Regime Opens Embassy in Bahrain Despite Popular Opposition

MANAMA (Dispatches) – The Zionist regime’s foreign minister Yair Lapid is scheduled to visit Bahrain on Thursday to inaugurate the occupying regime’s embassy in Manama.
“Invited by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will arrive in Bahrain on Thursday on the first official visit of an Israeli minister,” the regime’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
The ministry said Lapid “will inaugurate the Israeli Embassy in Manama, and sign a series of bilateral agreements.”
On 14 September, Bahrain’s Ambassador to Tel Aviv, Khaled Al-Jalahma, presented his credentials to Zionist president Isaac Herzog. This came a year after the occupying regime and Bahrain signed a U.S.-sponsored agreement to normalize relations. The move was condemned by many countries and individuals.
Bahrain’s main opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, has denounced Manama’s normalization as “a crime,” emphasizing that the Al Khalifah regime’s policies do not conform to the will of the Bahraini nation.
Al-Wefaq, in a statement earlier this month, said the establishment of diplomatic ties between the Manama and Tel Aviv regimes is resoundingly rejected by all strata of Bahrain’s society.
The opposition party underlined that the normalization agreement with the Zionist regime’s is in blatant contradiction to Bahrain’s history and Islamic identity.
“This is an illegal agreement and all Bahrainis view it as a crime,” al-Wefaq pointed out.
The statement reiterated that the entire Bahraini nation supports Palestine and its legitimate cause.
“Anything that does not reflect the will of people and runs against their values is of no value. Insistence on such adventurism will further deepen the rift between the Bahraini nation and the Al Khalifah regime as the latter has distanced itself from the people,” al-Wefaq highlighted.
