Bahrain: A Hot Potato Across The Persian Gulf

Bahrain: A Hot Potato Across The Persian Gulf | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Fifteen months into their uprising, Bahrainis balk at both the proposed union with Riyadh and statements reviving the Iranian claim to their country.

Tensions are running high between the two coasts of the Persian Gulf.

The war of words pitting Saudi Arabia and Bahrain against Iran may be part of a regional struggle that is essentially over Syria rather than Bahrain. But Bahrain is its current focus, and it is the Bahraini people who are being made to pay the price.

The escalation was triggered by the announcement of Saudi Arabia’s plans to merge with Bahrain under the guise of forming a Gulf union, and fuelled by Iranian statements that were made in response....

GCC Union Needs `Common Understanding' to Confront Iran

GCC Union Needs `Common Understanding' to Confront Iran | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...

Only the people of Bahrain can talk about independence and no one has the right “to speak on behalf of the Bahraini people about any kind of confederation with any country,” Bahrain’s largest Shiite political group, Al-Wefaq, said in an e-mailed statement yesterday.

“When the European countries decided to move to a union, they went through discussions and everybody voted for or against the union,” Ali Salman, the group’s secretary-general, said in the statement. “While here, the union is forcefully imposed.” ...

Saudi and Bahrain expected to seek union-minister | Reuters

* Saudi, Bahraini leaders tout Gulf union plan * Bahrain opposition: idea is to dodge protesters' demands *.....

"I expect there will be an announcement of two or three countries. We can't be sure but I have a strong expectation," Samira Rajab, Bahrain's minister of state for information affairs, told Reuters on Sunday. Two of the countries mentioned were Saudi Arabia and Bahrain; Rajab did not name the third.

"Sovereignty will remain with each of the countries and they would remain as U.N. members but they would unite in decisions regarding foreign relations, security, military and the economy."

Despite appearances of unity, there are deep divisions within the GCC, which also includes Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman, as its officials meet in Riyadh on Monday for day-long talks.

Saudi Arabia fears that Bahrain's pro-democracy movement has the potential to spill over into its own Shi'ite-populated Eastern Province region, home to major oilfields. ....

Iranian students hold demo to protest proposed Bahrain-Saudi union |  No to #KSAOccupyBah ! | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

TEHRAN – Iranian students held a rally on Sunday to protest the decision recently made by Persian Gulf Arab states to discuss a proposal for a closer political union that could begin with Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

In the rally that was held near the UN office in Tehran, the students chanted slogans in condemnation of the proposal and the Bahraini government’s wrong policies and expressed their support for the Bahraini people.

Saudi Arabia and Bahrain weighed the issue of establishing a closer political union at a summit of Persian Gulf Arab leaders on May 14 in Riyadh organized to pool efforts to neutralize popular uprisings against despotic monarchist systems.  ...

According to the New York Times, tens of thousands of Bahrainis took to the streets on Friday to demonstrate against the proposal to unite Bahrain with neighboring Saudi Arabia.

“No to union. Bahrain is not for sale,” protesters chanted as they marched along a main road linking a number of Shia villages around the capital.

GCC talks of a Bahrain'unification' with Saudi Arabia.....

Escalation of live-fire shotgun blasts upon inarmed civilian Shiites........

 

I think these events are linked by more than their concurrence......

Maybe linked by Wahhabist zeal, hatred, and myopic morality?!

 

'Unification' is:  1. A military move against Iran, Bahrainis have no complicity in this paranoia ....  2. An attempt to whitewash the atrocities of the Al-Khalifa regime by 

disolving the state they 'governed' by annexation into KSA.... 3.  A persecutory move against Shiites everywhere by the extremist Wahhabis...4.....

Intersected an information from different sources confirmed Chairman of the AL-AYAM newspaper Najib Al-hamar, who is the brother of Nabil Al-hamar the media adviser for the king, That the royal family of Bahrain (Al Khalifa) has decided to sell Bahrain and its people to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the declaration of "Union of two in a royal decree" is likely to be released soon. The move, if true, confirms the desire of the family of the ruling Al Khalifa to ensure control of the wealth looted, and fear of real change reduces their powers.

Observers had been spotted intense letters between the Royal family in bahrain and Saudi Arabia in recent weeks, and was a message to carry the Deputy Prime Minister Mohammed bin Mubarak Al Khalifa to the king of Saudi Arabia, In these letters agreed to form of Union, which would be practically an admission of Bahrain governance with Saudi Arabia.

Highlight of this, "Bahrain mirror" knows that the national events fell apart for the meetings away from the spotlight to discuss this serious step, which will serve as a final and full occupation to Bahrain.

And that raised questions in these hours for the international society attitude and the position of the United Nations to cause the State of Bahrain, which provides for the National Action Charter and the Constitution applicable to "Bahrain is an independent Arab state may not waive its sovereignty, an inch of its territory. Is a fully sovereign state recognized officially at the United Nations "

Continue of this form of Union to be announced vague, but observers assert that "any form of announcement of the Union is not legal because it did not take the permission of the Bahraini people, and being in the practical recognition of the full of Bahrain to the rule of Saudi-oriented holistic hostile to the people of Bahrain and the aspirations to freedom and democracy.
