As I’ve noted before, it’s in America’s best interest that the stable dictatorships and monarchies of the Middle East stay in power versus the democratically elected extremist mobs of pan-terrorist savages on the Arab Street. And, of course, I side with the hypocritical, anti-Israel Sunni Bahraini royals, the Khalifa Family, against the even worse Iran-backed Shi’ite animals that populate the place. However, add this to the feuds I love that I wish would never end and that both sides would lose. You know that Muslims trying and deporting Muslims never really makes the official outrage list of Westerners and the Western media because it’s not Israelis or Jews doing it. Whenever Israel tries to lift a finger against Azmi Bishara and other past and current anti-Israel/pro-HAMAS/Hezbollah Members of Knesset, it’s as if Israel committed a Holocaust.

But this is how Muslims treat Muslims. And, per usual, I say, let allah sort it out while we watch from the coliseum. We’ve already made enough of a mess by sending thousands of American boys to their deaths to hand Iraq from the Sunnis to the Iran-backed Shi’ites. We can ill-afford to see the Shi’ite crescent stretch further into the Gulf. So if we must side with anyone, it’s the Sunni Khalifas ruling the place. Sadly, the Obama doctrine of helping Muslims least favorable to America seems to be winning out. That’s why I support what the Al-Khalifa clan is doing to their Iranian-allied countrymen. The last thing we need is for Bahrain to become Hezbollah Fantasy Island of the Gulf.
The kingdom’s parliament effectively stripped 11 MPs from the Wefaq party – a quarter of the legislature’s sitting members – of their immunity from prosecution, signalling [DS: sic] a further hardening of the ruling family’s position.
Western human rights activists also accused the regime of torturing wounded protesters being held in a hospital in the capital Manama.
Bahrain has declared martial law and called in troops from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states to quell protests that have left at least 24 people dead.
And here’s the money quote:
Saudi officials say they gave their backing to Western air strikes on Libya in exchange for the United States muting its criticism of the authorities in Bahrain, a close ally of the desert kingdom.
Ali Salman, the Shiite opposition head has warned Iran and Saudi Arabia against using his country as a “battlefield” in a proxy war.
Yup, “principled” Obama crying crocodile tears over the “legitimate aspirations of the Libyan people” is a hypocrite, who doesn’t actually care about legitimacy or aspirations of anyone unless they are allied with Al-Qaeda, HAMAS, or Iran.
What Salman warns against is exactly what his Shi’ites are already doing and the Sunnis must respond or we’ll soon be seeing $6 and $7 a gallon oil when the Shi’ites take over and yet another oil producing country is controlled by radical Muslim nutjobs.
I would agree (with what they are doing). If these (Shi’ite) legislators are acting at the behest of Iran, they are guilty of treason. Ali Salman is running scared now. Bahrain needs to get on top of this situation unless it desires to be an Iranian satellite.
Exactly. Salman is an agent of Iran, plain and simple. This is why I applauded when the UAE’s Sharjah deported its Shi’ite Muslims a couple of years ago, to avoid what’s going on in the Bahraini streets, today.
Still, if Bahrain’s Al-Khalifas were smarter, they would have let Princess Meriam stay married to U.S. Marine Jason Johnson, to solidify the deal. Remember this?
