Bahrain: Hezbollah remarks will hurt ties with Lebanon

Bahrain condemned on Sunday Hezbollah’s criticism of its government, describing it as an intervention in the Gulf country’s internal affairs and held the Lebanese government responsible saying the statements would have a negative impact on the Lebanese-Bahraini bilateral ties.

A statement released by the The Bahraini Foreign Ministry said Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s verbal “assault against Bahrain and its people” was aimed at serving foreign interests, a reference to Iran, the party’s major ally.

The statement described Nasrallah as the “representative of a terrorist organization with a known history in destabilizing security in the region,” and added that Bahrain would remain stable while Nasrallah’s “terrorist remarks” would fail to provoke the Bahraini people.

During a televised speech via video link on Saturday evening Nasrallah called the events in Bahrain a “special injustice”. Nasrallah asked whether Arab silence about the repression of protests there is due to sectarian prejudice against the Shiite-majority opposition.

“I ask some in the Arab and Islamic worlds: Why have you remained mum over the tyranny against our people in Bahrain, is it only because they are Shiites?”

He also said Hezbollah is ready to help

Special training

Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa warned senior US military figures that opposition groups in Bahrain were receiving training from Hezbollah in Lebanon.

He also told senior American military official that Syria was “complicit” in the training by providing the Bahrainis with false passports.

The claims were reported in a leaked embassy cable sent by US diplomats in Bahrain to Washington.

King Hamad made the claim in a 90 minute meeting on 30 July 2008 with General David Petraeus who at the time was commander of the allied forces in Iraq.

King Hamad asked Gen Petraeus: “With friends like these, who needs enemies?”

    What’s wrong with this world? Mr. Nassrallah calls out the violence happening in Bahrain -the killings of civillians which can be seen on youtube- and he is told to keep shut? You can see videos of men being shot with live ammunition for demanding freedom! This movement started out peacefully until the the kingdom of Bahrain began slaughtering their own population. I am happy we have a leader in Lebanon who is brave enough to stand up against this! We value life and freedom in Lebanon, Mr. Nassrallah was acting as Lebanese as he could be. We oppose tyrants and terror in Lebanon, and side with freedom, dignity and respect. This means condemning the acts of Bahrain. Good on the Sayyed, Lebanon stands behind you and the human rights you call for.

    • Fadi81

      im not too sure if your post was intended to be sarcastic or not? yes he speaks out about the violence in Bahrain but he conveniently does not mention any violence by the Shia controlled states….its the hypocracy in his selected condemnation that questions his credibility as a human rights advocate-LOL!

        I’m going to ignore most of your reply because it’s garbage and only talk about the one thing you said that holds some ground. I think you’re talking about Iran. The Iranian protesters are not the majority of the country, they are a large group yes, but still not majority. Also their protests were permitted until they started throwing fire bombs, vandalizing public property, and had their permit expire. That sounds about fair to me to start using force against an illegal, violent, minority movement. Nothing to comment on here.

        • Fadi81

          HA! ya just like when they shot Neda in the head and the world watched her die in the street, I guess she was throwing fire bombs huh, and i guess all the opposition members that have been jailed for so long are also guilty of illegaly oppsing the islamist military regime…you’re funny man.

          not the majority? were you there counting? Stop watching PressTV and that stupid nonsense you guys call Al Manar. Get with the real facts! Every educated, REAL Iranian hates this regime of Khameini thugs. The only ones who support them are the politicians(some of them already hate Khameini now) and theit large families, the army, and the illiterate hillbilly Iranians who only know money thrown at them and free gifts. So don’t act like you know how we feel!!! If we all “love the regime” how come whenever our stupid “President” Ahmadinejad comes to speak to a university or a city stadium, there are protests and anger. He came to Hamamdan, a city of over half a million people to speak in a stadium. The government had to take supporters on buses (usually poor,old people looking for the free gifts) to see him speak and the stadium was still half empty. AND, some people started to leave as he was speaking.(they did not want to listen to the nonsense anymore) A city with soooo many people and when the President is in town, nobody shows up……this says a lot!! This is not just Hamadan! Stop believing your lies and propoganda and WAKE UP TO REALITY!

      Crossed what freedom have been taking from these protesters anyway? I do not see a Marshall Law in Bahrain? Everyone is pretty much well off there? The reason the world do not complain too much about the gov’t there because the protesters are not legit period. The second reason is that Iran and Hezbollah are concerned with the enemy gov’t protesters and not the gov’t they’re friendly with? Now tell your Sayyed if he cares about human beings in general then tell Assad to stop the Marshall law there and treat his people with dignity and respect and provide for them water and basic needs. And Last Nassrallah is always terrorizing the Lebanese population on regular basis. Assassinate whoever stands in his way and intimidate those who do not follow his path and you want us to believe that this scumbucket is really looking for human rights? at Terrorist do not have the right to ask for Freedom and human rights. Now why don’t you and Nassrallah just shut up and stop interferring in Bahrain and stop training the Shiites there in order to rebel against the gov’t who have given them more than any gov’t in the world.

        Yeah well off, except for the rampant discrimination. How is peacefully protesting for freedom and fairness not legit? Why don’t you look the protesters in the eyes and say no, go back to living as second class citizens, fairness isn’t your right? Who is Mr. Nasrallah terrorizing? He hasn’t hurt anyone, and didn’t Mr. Hariri just hold a huge rally against him? You have no proof hezbollah kills its political opponents, or is training shi’ites in Bahrain.

          We have resounding evidence from May 7 2008. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_conflict_in_Lebanon). Forgive my jaded nature but no Lebanese person can honestly care what is happening in Bahrain when we are being terrorized by Nasrallah here. If he believes so strongly for Bahraini Shi3a rights we the Lebanese people encourage him to go to bahrain. Hell, set up a trust fund for people to donate to his immigration and I will be the first to donate.

          again let me say this on its own line and in caps. WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT BAHRAIN/LIBYA /SYRIA /IRAN/ USA/ ISRAEL what ever country is the flavor of the week. We care about Lebanon and protecting our rights in our country.

  • Beiruti

    What are these Bahrainis complaining about? Firstly the shi’ites arent being discriminated against. The unemployment rate in Bahrain is 3% which is virtually nothing. Its a very modernized nation, and your king never starved you guys. So please enough of this bullsh!t this is just a very dirty trick from Iran so they can have also their sneaky revolution and put an imam in Bahrain.

    • nabilabuzaid

      Well Said Beiruti and I am happy that you see it the right way.

    • kareemthehippy

      I don’t think it’s that cynical Beiruti. With all due respect, unless you live in Bahrain, you can’t make a statement claiming that they are not being discriminated. They want a utilitarian democracy. These are peaceful demonstrations that are being reacted by the police in a violent and unjust way. I am not with Ahmedinejad or Hezbollah in any matter, but there is a reason behind them protesting. It’s not that they’re all stupid and brainwashed. unemployment rate doesn’t define societal happiness. Maybe there are lots of aspiring Bahraini Shiites that want to be in the government but know they can’t represent their own people. Maybe many want more female involvement. Maybe many want a democratic reform.

      Give the benefit of the doubt. It’s not some islamic revolution we’re seeing there.

        see youtube videos of this sick demented king having his army shooting them in the back while they walk,ill be honest though since other countries are going in like saudia arabia and UAE to help crack down on the protesters,i pray everyday that Iran will go in and help the protesters over come all this violence brought towards them,cause if Iran or HA dont help them,no one will….Just imagine if Iran went into Bahrain first….the wholeeee world would be talking bout it,but no one has said a word bout SA and UAE entering another country to protect there sunnie brothers in leadership…anyway Thanks Kareem for being non biased on this issue…i for one appreciate it…

          Another fool and victim of CNN and BBC who were given a one sided view by seeking shi’ias. The violent shi’ias protesting are the uneducated fools, that ruined everything on the shi’ia uprising.

        YEAH right MORE female representation… Where is that? in the Middle East? LOL In Bahrain the struggle is Shia – Sunni
        NOT a working class (or masses) vs. a corrupt regime. The same way the minority Alaouites rule in Syria a Sunni minority rules in Bahrain. The Shia have been marginalized in the Arab world for a long time as are the Copts of Egypt. The root of all Evil ———————————————————————–> You guessed it: Religion… and Sectarianism which is the same as being a racist.

        • kareemthehippy

          I was just speaking in ideal terms. This is a long term vision. Obviously they are saying we’re the majority, have a “secular” government where anyone can run, and you’ll probably end up with a Shiite leader, and that’s probably how many of them see it..but at least having a secular democracy is the first step, despite it potentially going wrong. Uprising against discrimination is the first start to progress in my opinion, even though many are doing it in the name of their religion at the moment…it’ll allow a more secular and less sectarian potential. At least that’s what I think. I’m not saying it’s a perfectly true if-then statement.

      • global82

        What the hell are you taking about shiites not being given the right to be in government. Ministries and parliament have a number of Shi’as in them, albeit, the educated ones and the aspirers. So, don’t say that the government isn’t fair in that sense. Both non-royal sunis and shi’as cannot rule Bahrain and that’s the way it’s been from when Bahrain was established. So, please shy away from your ‘peaceful’ protests claims because you and I both know they weren’t peaceful especially when you have armed protestors that provoke the security forces and cause mayhem which takes a toll on the Bahraini economy, which at the end WILL affect everyone.

        • kareemthehippy

          Shy away? That’s adorable. Yeah it’s been that since Bahrain is established, but don’t you think it’s unfair that it’s limited to a royal family in the 21st century? Sure many of them probably aren’t the greatest people you want for a leader, but perhaps this is a good step forward for them.

          What’s in a name? You think the parliament in Bahrain actually does much? You had the Duma during Tsarist Russia; it shut the people up when they demanded some change but didn’t do anything. When Bahrain tries to bring in Sunnis from east Asia and what not and gives them Bahraini citizenship to help increase the Sunni percentage in demographics, doesn’t that sound somewhat racist and discriminatory to you?

        • global82

          To kareem’s reply below. Bahrain functions well this way and people are being treated fairly. It isn’t a super rich nation that can subsidies everything. Poeple are getting enough. That includes housing, free healthcare, and education including college scholarships. So the govt does faciliate for a better life. It’s up to people to take advantage of that and not get involved in the international poltical sunni vs shite agenda. Iran and Hezbollah do have their influences on the shiite in Bahrain and thats why you see iranian and hezbollah flags and signs all around their villages. You think that’s civilized, especially when you can do things to help your country instead. Like take up a blue collar job and not be ashamed because those are ‘cut out’ for the Asians. Please. people should work for their country, not sit on their asses and complain. Regarding nationalizing people, that was done for the reason to increase bahrain’s security force, which is basically non existant, attested by how poorly they controlled the uprising. On the other hand shiites have this idea that they more they produce offspring the better chances they have at overthrowing the govt. What kind of sense is that? Also on citizenship, please go review statistics on how many iranian shiite immagrants have come to bahrain in the last 50 years and how many were given citizenships. Change is gradual and they extreme way these idiots are going about it is causes more damage then it will do them good.

  • Beiruti

    What are these Bahrainis complaining about? Firstly the shi’ites arent being discriminated against. The unemployment rate in Bahrain is 3% which is virtually nothing. Its a very modernized nation, and your king never starved you guys. So please enough of this bullsh!t this is just a very dirty trick from Iran so they can have also their sneaky revolution and put an imam in Bahrain.

    • nabilabuzaid

      Well Said Beiruti and I am happy that you see it the right way.

    • kareemthehippy

      I don’t think it’s that cynical Beiruti. With all due respect, unless you live in Bahrain, you can’t make a statement claiming that they are not being discriminated. They want a utilitarian democracy. These are peaceful demonstrations that are being reacted by the police in a violent and unjust way. I am not with Ahmedinejad or Hezbollah in any matter, but there is a reason behind them protesting. It’s not that they’re all stupid and brainwashed. unemployment rate doesn’t define societal happiness. Maybe there are lots of aspiring Bahraini Shiites that want to be in the government but know they can’t represent their own people. Maybe many want more female involvement. Maybe many want a democratic reform.

      Give the benefit of the doubt. It’s not some islamic revolution we’re seeing there.

You call burning and destroying your own country for decades peaceful? I wonder.

          I don’t support any of the corrupt militias or countries in the Middle East. I support international law and equal rights for the common people. I wouldn’t want Hezbollah or Iran helping them. Ideally it would balance it out, but I believe in the Bahraini people to have a revolution and positive change on their own..by the people for the people…nya2 I sound like George Bush now..but you get it.

    You guys are sooo anti Shia that the only revolution ur against is the one that gives Shia freedom

    I cant belive what im reading,the only shia u guys like are the ones that attack other shias AKA sayed ali amin

    and Okab Sakr,or the ones that rise up in Iran against there own Shia brothers…I mean think about it,the Shia have

    messed up ur mind so bads that any negative article or response against them is warranted by support and any thing

    else is criticized…of allllll the uprisings you guys are looking deep to find whats good in Bahrain just cause there Shia

    wallahi haram…saddd day to say im lebanese….

    And just an FYI question if i may…its simple and most always say it but no one talks about it

    Whats the Difference between Iran and Saudia Arabia? other than one u hate cause there Shia and

    one you support cause the leader of march 14 treats king abdallah like daddy…please someone answer?

    • marc

      Micheal, Hope you are doing fine, my response is very simple, I don’t hate anyone, I yearn for freedom, all lebanese who care about lebanon yearn for the same goal a free lebanon.

      As for the arab world the aspiration are the same actually no matter where you live in the world people long for freedom. So please don’t let your raw emotion hinder your logic.

      I support freedom every where Lebanon, Bahrain , Syria, Iran , Libya, egypt AS yemen…

        Id really like to get your views Marc on what i said earlier about the Kings poster and Saudi Flags at a rally thats supposed to be “against forginge intervention” Thanks brother…I hope you have a great day…its people like you that give me hope that 2 sides will see eye to eye one day…

        • marc

          Dear Micheal-

          Im humbled by your comment. To answer your question all of us who is for a free lebanon from any foreign influence should be coherent with themself, and start by critize is own view and align is view with is value and belief. They should preach by example, you see it is not easy to do so because of our weak human nature.

          The real trap lays at blaming other. We should aim to build on positive not negative rhetoric.

          We should find ways to dialogue without resorting on violence.

          We should respect all opinion without trying to impose.

          And finally, we should respect the will of the people.

          The people in the end must carry the last word in any debate. That is in my view the fondamentals of a civil democracy.

          Peace be upon you brother

      I can speak for myself when I say I do not care if you are Shia, Sunni, Druze, or Christian. I hate Iran because they empower a force in Lebanon that is not the state. the difference between Saudi and Iran is that Saudi donations are given to the GOVERNMENT of Lebanon, not some guy in a cave with delusions of imperialism and terrorism.

        Mohamed,

        At least you tried to answer my question,so first are you telling me that Iran has not contributed any
        money or buildings to Lebanon,and second where is the Money that Saudia Arabia has given the goverment
        i can give you a laundry list of things Iran has built in Lebanon,can u tell me where is the money from the Saudis?
        and do u think the Saudis treat there people different than the Iraninans?

        • http://twitter.com/Mosetsfire84 Mohamad Masri

          Michael,

          It does not matter what “good” Iran does in Lebanon because its not doing it for Lebanon…It is doing it to empower Hezbollah which is a militia force that usurps the power of the state. If Iran wants to bring its kindness within the fold of the state then I am all for Iran as an ally…As long as Hezbollah has the ability to overthrow the state at anytime it pleases our country is held hostage. I didn’t always hate Hezbollah, and there was a time where I, like most Lebanese, supported the resistance 100%. After the 2006 war which Hezbollah dragged us into, and after May 7, 2008. I, like many, believe the resistance has now outlived its usefulness.

          As for Saudi, I don’t doubt their motives are clouded. Saudi’s own half the beachfront real estate in Beirut and their investment is in protecting what belongs to them, but the difference is they arent arming a militia. That’s the dealbreaker for me and for many like me. I hope this clarifies my position.

          Salam

      “Incidentally, the Virgin store is owned by a family member of Lebanese Democratic Party leader Talal Arslan who is aligned with the March 8 coalition. One of the rumors making the rounds on Twitter today is that the Saudi king signage was posted by March 8 supporters” whats funny is that the poster was dropped right before saad hariri began his speech lol, this wasnt there during the setup by the M14 event organizers…BTW i dont care about the saudi king, and i dont care about khomieni and i dont care about nas-khara, I care about Lebanon and disarming all criminal terrorist organizations in Lebanon…..so Michael this shows how weak you guys are, this was all you had????what a weak attempt at creating controversy over a poster lol…all over the road to baalbec and all over the south the roads are filled with posters of foreign terrorist creep bags. so please tell me what now for M8? join us your time is running out, or remain being second class citizens under your puppet islamist jihadist leaders…

One of the rumors making the rounds on Twitter today is that the Saudi king signage was posted by March 8 supporters” whats funny is that the poster was dropped right before saad hariri began his speech lol, this wasnt there during the setup by the M14 event organizers…BTW i dont care about the saudi king, and i dont care about khomieni and i dont care about nas-khara, I care about Lebanon and disarming all criminal terrorist organizations in Lebanon…..so Michael this shows how weak you guys are, this was all you had????what a weak attempt at creating controversy over a poster lol…all over the road to baalbec and all over the south the roads are filled with posters of foreign terrorist creep bags. so please tell me what now for M8? join us your time is running out, or remain being second class citizens under your puppet islamist jihadist leaders…

    Mohamed,

    For once i see a side of you that was respectful,honestly whn i came here i knew there were gonna be many disagreements,
    i mean in reality how boring would life be if we all agreed on everything,your answer was at least genuine and spoken with respect,thats all i want,i disagree with your stances as you disagree with mine,but in the end at the very least lets keep the dialogue between all of us at level that avoids insults,i fell into that trap and let my emotions get the best of me,i regret that,but with communication that avoids insults and anger,you can see eachother sides with a clear head,and that may help me or even you…if we all hung out i bet we would be shocked how much we all have in common,but we focus on our hatred more cause thats what makes us different….Salam

      At the end of the day we are all Lebanese, and we are the only democratic country in the ME (Israel cannot be considered democratic because they are also ethnocratric, i.e. only Jews are fully protected and supported under the law)

      My thoughts are simple. I do not care what God you bow to, or what party you affiliate yourself to, as long as you believe its in the best interest of our country. The reason I get so animated is because I feel like Hezbollah answers to a different agenda. We are a civilized people, our leaders do not live in caves and threaten to cut peoples hands off…This is the 21st century. There are many many things wrong with our political infrastructure, and corruption runs rampant on both sides of the fence, but at the end of the day I support March 14 because I think they have the best interest of the country in mind.

      Saudi tried to mediate between March 8 and March 14 over the STL and failed…They didn’t impose a settlement. They consult, and they give their biased opinion, but they don’t supply weaponry to uphold those opinions. Iran on the other hand circumvents the government entirely and hands money straight to Hezbollah. This is unacceptable, and non negotiable. Militias are what drove this country to civil war the first time, and I can say this knowingly because my father was in the Murabitoun. Passionate, aggravated young men being led around by a man in a cave is a dangerous situation for all Lebanese who want to express themselves freely.

      In short hbb, diplomatic isolation is suicide for a country our size, and an organization such as Hezbollah cannot co-exist in a country of our size. Hezbollah’s GDP is probably almost the same size as Lebanon…A sub-state that big cannot live in a state that small without completely absorbing it or fracturing it. I do not want to see Lebanon’s new border become the Litani. Militias served a purpose in the 70’s and the 80’s, but now they are a liability. Their time has ended for Hezbollah and the time is now beginning where the Lebanese Army reclaims the job it was created to do, protect the state and the citizenry.

    You guys are sooo anti Shia that the only revolution ur against is the one that gives Shia freedom

    I cant belive what im reading,the only shia u guys like are the ones that attack other shias AKA sayed ali amin

    and Okab Sakr,or the ones that rise up in Iran against there own Shia brothers…I mean think about it,the Shia have

    messed up ur mind so bads that any negative article or response against them is warranted by support and any thing

    else is criticized…of allllll the uprisings you guys are looking deep to find whats good in Bahrain just cause there Shia

    wallahi haram…saddd day to say im lebanese….

    And just an FYI question if i may…its simple and most always say it but no one talks about it

    Whats the Difference between Iran and Saudia Arabia? other than one u hate cause there Shia and

    one you support cause the leader of march 14 treats king abdallah like daddy…please someone answer?

  • Mosetsfire

    I can speak for myself when I say I do not care if you are Shia, Sunni, Druze, or Christian. I hate Iran because they empower a force in Lebanon that is not the state. the difference between Saudi and Iran is that Saudi donations are given to the GOVERNMENT of Lebanon, not some guy in a cave with delusions of imperialism and terrorism.

  • marc

    Micheal, Hope you are doing fine, my response is very simple, I don’t hate anyone, I yearn for freedom, all lebanese who care about lebanon yearn for the same goal a free lebanon.

    As for the arab world the aspiration are the same actually no matter where you live in the world people long for freedom. So please don’t let your raw emotion hinder your logic.

    I support freedom every where Lebanon, Bahrain , Syria, Iran , Libya, egypt AS yemen…

    So we are all human, created equal in God eye.

    Peace be upon all freedom lover and peace maker!

    Marc,

    Im well brother,hope your the same..Man,your a level headed a guy,your answers are always well respected even though we dont agree on certain views,i find myself agreeing with you on other views,I was calm and spoke with patience and no emotion,but once i did that it was misunderstood for weakness,and i was attacked and spoke at like a child,anyway about bahrain there are posters on here saying they should not have the right to do what there doing,that life in Bahrain is amazing,let me tell you we live in the west and our lives are good,if Iran or anyone else asked us to protest against the goverment we wouldnt cause for economic reasons we have no reason…but in Bahrain if life was as good as some say on here do u think that Iran or anyone else can infiltrate tht deep to that many people,unless there lives were really that bad,its common sense,but ignorance is bliss..

    Id really like to get your views Marc on what i said earlier about the Kings poster and Saudi Flags at a rally thats supposed to be “against forginge intervention” Thanks brother…I hope you have a great day…its people like you that give me hope that 2 sides will see eye to eye one day…

  • Mosetsfire

    Michael,

    It does not matter what “good” Iran does in Lebanon because its not doing it for Lebanon…It is doing it to empower Hezbollah which is a militia force that usurps the power of the state. If Iran wants to bring its kindness within the fold of the state then I am all for Iran as an ally…As long as Hezbollah has the ability to overthrow the state at anytime it pleases our country is held hostage. I didn’t always hate Hezbollah, and there was a time where I, like most Lebanese, supported the resistance 100%. After the 2006 war which Hezbollah dragged us into, and after May 7, 2008. I, like many, believe the resistance has now outlived its usefulness.

    As for Saudi, I don’t doubt their motives are clouded. Saudi’s own half the beachfront real estate in Beirut and their investment is in protecting what belongs to them, but the difference is they arent arming a militia. That’s the dealbreaker for me and for many like me. I hope this clarifies my position.

    Salam

    Dear Micheal-

    Im humbled by your comment. To answer your question all of us who is for a free lebanon from any foreign influence should be coherent with themself, and start by critize is own view and align is view with is value and belief. They should preach by example, you see it is not easy to do so because of our weak human nature.

    The real trap lays at blaming other. We should aim to build on positive not negative rhetoric.

    We should find ways to dialogue without resorting on violence.

    We should respect all opinion without trying to impose.

    And finally, we should respect the will of the people.

    The people in the end must carry the last word in any debate. That is in my view the fondamentals of a civil democracy.

    Peace be upon you brother
