Here is the text of the cable :

King Hamad related the report that Bahrainis were receiving training from Hezbolah in Lebanon, but admitted he had no definitive proof. He also speculated that the Syrian government was complicit, and &must be8 helping these Bahrainis & travel without passport verification as tourists.

Opposition supporters in Bahrain have held protests for a third straight day, calling for more rights and for the prime minister to step down.

Some demonstrators are calling for the ouster of the king, while all are demanding the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa, who has been in power for nearly 40 years.

Most of the people participating in Bahrain’s demonstrations have been Shi’ite Muslims, who represent about 70 percent of the country’s population. They claim they are treated like second-class citizens by the ruling Sunni minority.

Petitioners say: “Special Force 2 encourages violence for Arab children in a very political and religious way, by taking a devastating war and manipulating it into a recruitment process for Hezbollah through a CHILDREN’S VIDEO GAME.”

    It’s very clear that this organization is not here as a ‘resistance’ to protect Lebanon against Israeli aggression but rather a mob that thrives on violence & aggression. There is a big difference between minding your own business and being on the defensive to protect your country/people in comparison to the true mission of these barbarians which is to instigate wars and unrest throughout the Arab world all part of Iran’s scheme to dominate the region.

    The protest in Bahrain looks very fishy to me after all i never heard any oppression from the regime like you hear in Egypt, Syria and Saudi. Also with all due respect if the protesters are mostly Shiite that could be of either being descriminated against? or most likely Iran is fueling the protest in order to overpower the Sunnis. What business of Hezbollah to train Bahrainis? so we have Iran is the head of spreading their own revolutions to Middle East and Hezbollah is aiding it to spread that beliefs and control. SO much for the resistance..Now Nassrallah wants to occupy Israel heights but first free yourself out of your bunker for God’s sake. IN 2006 you were scared shit and don’t think the Israelis this time have not learned from the last war. Yes it will much more deadlier this time but God help us with Iran, Syria and Nassrallah control the war and peace in Lebanon.
