According to a document released by Wikileakes, Bahraini security forces are secretly cooperating with Israel's notorious intelligence service, Mossad.
The leaked cables suggest that Manama has established intelligence and security ties with Tel Aviv with the full backing of the country's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
The cables report private talks between the then US ambassador, William Monroe, and the Bahraini king in Manama on February 15, 2005.
"He [the king] revealed that Bahrain already has contacts with Israel at the intelligence/security level (Mossad) and indicated that Bahrain will be willing to move forward in other areas," said Monroe's report back to Washington, adding that the Bahraini King boasted of such ties with Israel.
According to Wikileaks, King Hamad has also issued an order not to refer to the Israeli regime as the Zionist regime in official documents.
The revelation came as Bahraini security forces are brutally cracking down the anti-government protesters in the Persian Gulf island.
The Wikileaksrevelation is considered confirmation of earlier evidence indicating close ties between Bahraini security authorities and Israel.
According to Bahraini opposition, the Manama regime removes the internal organs of those killed in anti-government protests similar to what Israelis do to Palestinians.
“The bodies of the youths, who are being taken out of hospitals and killed, are being returned to their families with their organs missing,” Ralph Schoenman, the author of The Hidden History of Zionism told Press TV.
“That's a replica of what the Israeli armed forces were doing in Gaza and other place with Palestinian prisoners - marketing their organs,” he added.
No Arab country with the exception of Egypt and Jordan has diplomatic relations with Israel. Bahrain does not recognize Israel and traditionally supports the creation of an independent Palestinian state.
