MTV: Bahrain ordered many Lebanese to leave within 48 hours

MTV reported on Thursday that the Bahraini authorities have ordered many Lebanese to leave Bahraini territory within 48 hours.

MTV quoted an anonymous Lebanese worker in Bahrain as saying that “the departure order was given to tens of Lebanese working there.”

Addressing the relations between Lebanon and Bahrain , Caretaker PM Saad Hariri said yesterday:

“We’re working together with our brothers in the Gulf, especially with our Bahraini brothers, to end the repercussions of the irresponsible and unjustified political alignment which has nothing to do with Lebanese patriotism or Arab nationalism. It’s rather part of the Iranian plot which I have described as an attempt to dominate Lebanon and the Arab region.”

He was reportedly referring to the travel ban imposed by Bahrain against travel to Lebanon when Hezbollah openly sided with the protesters against the government . Bahrain branded Hezbollah a “terrorist organization”.

Bahrain interior minister Sheikh Rashed bin Abdullah al-Khalifa linked Hezbollah to the protests during his address to the parliament on March 29

He accused the predominantly Shiite protesters of being linked to” the Iranian-backed Hezbollah, “as proven by the demonstrators’ methods as well as statements of support from the Lebanese Shiite group and Tehran.”

“All this reveals a link and the training style of Hezbollah,” the interior minister said.

Kuwaiti newspaper As-Seyyasah reported last month that the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states are heading toward “making a collective decision to expel all Lebanese Shiites who are connected to Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.”

“ These states received proven reports from Bahraini, French, and US intelligence that Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard members are, along with local religious figures, leading the protests in Bahrain and eastern Saudi Arabia,” the daily quoted an anonymous Arab diplomat as saying.

    Let them stay there we have enough Shi’ites in Lebanon, send them to Iran because thats the country most of them are loyal to.

    • Lebanon belongs to all Lebanese the Shia are the majority in Lebanon and they should rule.

      • Mazen_M

        Your statement does not make sense and is not logical. How can you say Lebanon belongs to all Lebanese and in the same sentence say the Shia should rule!!!!.

        • They should have the presidency as they are the majority.

        Sorry but makes no sense at all , thats why Lebanon will live in KAOS and in the dark ages for ever

        You are technically ruling because your putting a gun to our heads. If the Shi’ites ruled Lebanon we’d go back couple centuries backwards and you’d probably impose your Sharia also.

      • Leborigine

        So you then agree that the Sunni’s should rule syria?!!

        • 5thDrawer

          NO-ONE should RULE !!  That is what Assad and Ayatolla-Supreme and other depots do. Try the word ‘LEAD’ for a change … as in ‘Leader of an Elected Party’.

      • 5thDrawer

        And YOU use the word ‘RULE’.  !!!
         Tsk … there’s your first megalomaniacal problem.  Certainly no democratic thinking there.
          After the occupation of 15 years, they seem to have become a majority … certainly the majority of troublemakers … although there are a few others floating around I could admit.
        But we know which bunch did not like the way the last ‘free’ vote went … and even if a lot of us think the ‘system’ – which should be changed – is fouled up, the people gave it a shot and went to vote. They know ….

        Want me to hold a gun and defend my country? Israels not attacking us. And speaking of cowards, you and your Hezbollah are the animals who turned their weapons on the defenceless Lebanese people in 2008.

  • They are kicking the Lebanese out, they should be kicked out when they go to Lebanon.

      Alissar, you said “They should have the presidency as they are the majority”. What majority are you talking about? You mean population majority? If that’s the case then yes they will win elections but that does not give them the right to “rule” just because they have more people. What should happen is that every party should have a candidate representing them and then the candidates tell us what they want to do for Lebanon to make it better and make us live better in our country, and then we vote for the best person whether he is Shia, Sunni, Druze, Christian, or whatever. So it will be ok for people from different religions to vote for a candidate of a different religion if they agree with him or her. We should stop this nonsense of “I vote for a person just because he is from my religion even though he is not qualified for the position”.

      I hope you agree with me or understand my point. Nobody has the “Right” to rule Lebanon. Period. Thanks.

        Yes Yes I am a Christian and I would rather have a Muslim, Jew or anyone Govern (not rule ) in Lebanon as long as they work together for Lebanon and the people as one. To create work ,health for all and many other things to make life better for the Lebanese .
        To give the people a chance to live in peace.

        • finally a person who actually uses his brain before talking.You people should be ashamed of yourself,I mean you have the right to criticize a certain political party but sure don’t when it comes to criticizing a whole religious sect while cowering in the territory of your own sect.I’m not saying this to show how futile this conversation is,I’m saying this to show that criticism and insults will lead us no where.Only and I mean ONLY together can we ever hope to improve this country and rid ourselves of hatred,disorder and corruption.

      Nothing like swinging a knife around in a ‘peaceful’ protest. Why, he’s even wearing green !! …. but he’s in Liban.
       Perhaps a pic of one of the  ‘tens’  being booted out of Bahrein would be better … too bad they don’t give an accurate number … 21 .. 31 ?  But meanwhile over in lovely Syria …. 20,000 … 30,000

    if the comments here are a guide on inter-lebanese sentiment, then kess emkon kelkon shoo hebel!

    you ALL deserve what is happening to you.

    thankfully, I dont live in lebanon anymore, and whilst I love my country, I hate each one of you idiots who think it’s ok to insult a whole ethnic sect just because your masters tell you so.

    for the record, I am an athiest and I think that all religious afilliations indicate “habal” and intellctual limitations. But I would never consider insulting a whole sect like some do on this site.
