Iran: Bahrain invaders playing with fire

The Iranian Parliament (Majlis)

The National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) has warned against Saudi Arabia's invasion of Bahrain, calling on Riyadh to leave the Persian Gulf state.

“Saudi Arabia knows better than any other country that playing with fire in the sensitive Middle East region will not be in their interests,” said the commission in a Thursday statement regarding the ongoing developments in the region.

“Instead of pursuing US policies in the region, Saudi Arabia had better think about its own interests and the Muslim world and take steps to pull out its forces from Bahrain in order to establish peace and security in the region and refrain from adding to complications,” it added.

The Majlis commission warned that the regional developments would get the United States and its allies bugged down, irrespective of all their mobilized efforts.

The Iranian lawmakers noted that the deployment of Saudi and United Arab Emirates (UAE) troops, backed by the US, in Bahrain would complicate the situation in the region and strengthen the resolve of Bahrainis to counter the 'occupiers.'

Backed by forces deployed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, the Bahraini government has launched indiscriminate armed attacks on peaceful anti-government protesters.

At least 24 people have been killed and about 1,000 others injured during the Manama-sanctioned violence.

Bahraini demonstrators maintain that they will hold their ground until their demands for freedom, constitutional monarchy as well as a proportional voice in the government are met.

The statement announced that the Libyan, Yemeni and Bahraini governments are killing their own people, adding that it would be a 'stigma' for officials of these countries.

It pointed to the role of the US, which claims to defend human rights in the world, and said the United States has demonstrated that it only thinks of its own interests.

It questioned Washington's silence on the brutal killings of people in Libya and emphasized that member states of the UN Security Council passed a hasty draft resolution when “they feel that people are likely to take control of affairs and a popular government may be established in the (African) country which will undermine their dominance over oil resources.”

“They launched their military operations with the purpose of maintaining their dominance over energy resources of another Muslim country,” the commission said.

It pointed out that the US and Israel are the main enemies of the world and stressed that they continue to hatch plots in an attempt to achieve domination over the Muslim world.

The statement pointed to the plots of colonial powers, particularly Britain, to cause a rift between Shia and Sunni Muslims and called on Muslims in the region to strengthen their unity and solidarity in order to counter such 'ominous conspiracies.'

Libya says at least 114 people -- many of them civilians -- have been killed since US-led forces launched aerial and sea attacks on the North African country.

Libyan troops have also killed thousands of civilians since the revolution started against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in mid-February.
