Boroujerdi Slams PGCC's False Accusations

“The people of this nation (Bahrain), like the people of all Muslim nations, have the right to live normal lives with the civil liberties recognized by the United Nations Charter and international norms,”  Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Monday.

Head of the Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission further stated that the council's stance was in response to Iran's earlier statement criticizing the deployment of Saudi and Emirati troops in Bahrain.

Separately, Iranian lawmaker Kazem Jalali on Monday criticized the council for engaging in “psychological projection” instead of heeding the voice of their people.

“Instead of taking proper measures to meet the demands of the people, they try to lay the blame on the Islamic Republic; whereas they are well aware that their dependence on the US and their cringing behavior towards the Zionist regime [of Israel] is humiliating their nations, who seek to regain their lost honor,” Jalali noted.

In Sunday's extraordinary meeting of the council member states, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates claimed that Iran was 'meddling' in Bahrain affairs after Tehran warned Riyadh that it was "playing with fire" by deploying troops in neighboring Bahrain.

Analysts say that despite being mistreated by the Persian Gulf states, Iran has always responded with compassion to its Arab neighbors.

When Iraq attacked Iran back in the 1980s, the rulers of Persian Gulf countries, namely Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE, offered billions of dollars in aid to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to kill innocent Iranian civilians.

“Iran did nothing to respond to that in fact they were very nice to the Kuwaitis,” IGA Director Ali al-Ahmed told Press TV on Saturday.

When Saddam invaded Kuwait in the 1990s, the Persian Gulf states all voiced regret for supporting the Baghdad regime, and apologized to Iran. Tehran overlooked the animosity of Kuwait and later sent its oil workers to the country to help extinguish the fires engulfing the Arab country's oil wells.

In 2003, when the United States invaded Iraq, Kuwait was turned into a military base. Saudi Arabia sent human bombers to Kuwait, and Riyadh and Washington each assumed a fresh role in the new war.

“Blaming Iran for various things is the easiest way for Saudi Arabia to hide the clan's real plans for all the [Persian] Gulf countries,” Ahmed said.

It appears that there is no end to the mistakes of Arab rulers.
