Trump’s Middle East ‘Deal of the Century’ and his ‘Kosher Quartet’
June 10, 2019

The June 25-26, 2019 “peace conference” scheduled for Manama, Bahrain and attended by the United States, Israel, a few Palestinian quislings, and sell-out Arab states is nothing more than a rubber stamp on the future virtual annexation of the West Bank by Israel.

Trump is Enabling Brutal Repression in Bahrain
March 1, 2018

Republicans often criticized the Obama administration for “mistreating” our allies. Many of them seemed to believe that collecting allies was a bit like accumulating Facebook friends: the more the merrier—never mind whether they share Americans’ values. Some of President Donald Trump’s dearest foreign “friends” are authoritarian brutes at home, violating human rights that most Americans claim to hold dear.

Iraqi WMDs Anyone? Washington Post Makes Unfounded Claims Of Iranian Supplies To Insurgencies
April 4, 2017

The Washington Post falls back into its 2005 mode of blaming Iran for the capabilities of a local insurgency. This time it is not Iraq where Iran is allegedly providing to insurgents, but Bahrain.

Bahrain Risks to Follow Yemen
April 21, 2015

…The Crown Prince of Bahrain, Sheikh Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa, the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, blasted U.S. foreign policy in an interview and warned that its «schizophrenia» will lead the Arab world to ally with Russia. Using unusually hostile language, al-Khalifa said American policy is «transient and reactive», and «America seems to suffer from schizophrenia when it deals with the Arab world. He said the US foreign policy depends on forthcoming election in two years and there is no long-term policy. He expressed doubts that that Arab states could rely on the West. Bahrain does not trust Obama and strives to get US Congress backing…

From Bahrain to Ukraine: Hail the Western Salesmen of Subversion and Deception
December 9, 2013

…The protests in Kiev have evidently been driven by a determined minority, using violent and organized subversion, and calling for the overthrow of the elected authorities.  This is not the exercise of international human rights, as in Bahrain; in the case of the Ukraine, it is a call to sedition. Furthermore, the agitating groups in the Ukraine, such as the Fatherland Party and the neo-fascist Freedom Party, are known to have well-established logistical links to foreign agencies that are committed to fomenting regime change in targeted nations. These agencies include the American CIA and the benign-sounding National Endowment for Democracy. Certainly, the methodical tactics of disruption deployed recently against government buildings in Kiev strongly imply a covert military input…

Worldwide Jihad and the Shiite Factor

A few days ago the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bahrain, Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa, urged the assassination of Hezbollah leader sheikh Hasan Nasrallah… The reason for this statement is that the government of the island kingdom has essentially lost control over the Shiite majority of its population, which is sympathetic to Hezbollah and oriented toward Shiite Iran… At the same time, Bahrain and other Middle Eastern allies of the U.S. – Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE – have been showing serious concern over the rapid, as it seems to them, rapprochement of the U.S. and Iran…

Bahrainis Demand Regime Change
May 21, 2013

World media outlets give little attention to the events in Bahrain, a small island nation, which is a key ally of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the Persian Gulf… It’s a long time since Bahrain joined the zone of instability. The Sunni-ruled country is home to Shiites, making up 75% of the population deprived of rights and distanced from political mainstream… In April 2013 the stand off between the Shiites and Sunnis entered the phase of terrorist activities…
