Iranian MPs Deplore Saudi Occupation of Bahrain

The statement signed by 200 MPs and read by Mohammad Dehqan, a member of the parliament's presiding board, called on Saudi Arabia to show its power to the Zionist regime of Israel instead of attacking the defenseless people in Bahrain.

Underlining worldwide protests by the Muslim people in support of the popular uprisings in the regional states and in condemnation of the Saudi deployment in Bahrain, the Iranian lawmakers said, "Muslims in Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait, Afghanistan and even Saudi Arabia and many other countries are shouting protest at these crimes, specially the dreadful oppression exercised by the Saudi occupiers against the oppressed Bahraini people, and they call the Saudi army as a force that lacks Islamic culture and pride."

"All Muslims are urging for a rapid withdrawal of occupiers from Bahrain's soil."

The statement further reiterated attacks on the Bahraini people, including women and children and old men, do not display the power of the armed forces, "rather it is a sign of weakness".

Demonstrators in the Shiite-majority Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old Sunni-led monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14th.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, at least 24 people have been killed, almost 100 have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

The violence against protesters escalated when Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar dispatched their armed forces to the country to help Manama crack down on peaceful protesters.
