'Bahrain under U.S., Saudi occupation'

April 12, 2011 - 0:0

More arrests, more deaths, more torture and more intimidation in Bahrain describe what the residents of the Persian Gulf country are experiencing on a daily basis.

And now more sacrilege, as Saudi-led troops have burned more mosques in the country.
In an interview with Mohsen Saleh, a political analyst from Lebanese university in Beirut, Press TV discusses the situation to see what lies ahead for the people of Bahrain.
Press TV: Reports say five mosques have been destroyed and burned down along with copies of the holy Qur'an in Bahrain. Why do you think that the Saudi-led troops are targeting these religious sanctities?
Saleh: Well there is no difference between Pastor Terry Jones who burned a copy from the holy Qur'an and the Saudis and the Bahraini monarchy that are burning the Qur'an and destroying mosques. In the news I can see that they also kill people.
I think Bahrain is under an occupation by the United States and Saudi Arabia. The atrocities that are being done against Bahraini people are not done by Muslims. Nobody would do such brutal behavior against his people. These are agents of a satanic kind of deeds and show that how much they are scared of the people. These barbarians in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are supported by the United States and I guess they are not different from Terry Jones or Hitler.
Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi used all kind of artilleries and weapons against his people and these people are Muslims. There is no difference between the Shia and Sunni Muslims in this battle against dictatorship and occupation in all its kind whether in Bahrain or Saudi Arabia.
These dictators are using their agents and their authority to kill people without even distinguishing between Sunnis and Shias who are protesting either in Egypt or in Tunisia. All of them, either Sunni or Shia have the same question and the same reason in order to implement justice in their country.
The royal families whether in Bahrain or Saudi Arabia-- and U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates who brings weekly orders to these dictators-- follow a kind of hegemony which is against all kinds of revolutions whether in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Tunisia or in Yemen. Or in case of a revolution, it was stolen by the United States or by the British colonies.
I don't see any kind of independence in Bahrain since the U.S. is trying to determine the destiny of the people and trying to move them to kind of servants in its service.
