MP Lambasts Media Silence on "Genocide in Bahrain"

"The amoral silence of the western and regional media is very suspicious and noticeable since even those media which covered the popular uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Yemen refrain from releasing news of the genocide in Bahrain," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Parviz Sorouri told FNA on Monday.

Referring to the influence of Washington and Riyadh in Bahrain, he said the Riyadh and Manama governments are Washington's puppet in the region, "the Al-Saud is ruling Bahrain very easily and blatantly yet both the Al-Saud and Al-Khalifa regimes massacre the Bahraini people at the order of the westerners, specially the US.

Sorouri warned the Saudi and American officials of the dire consequences of their continued crimes in Bahrain, and underlined that the country's revolutionary people who are ready to pay any cost for their resistance will eventually free their country from the hands of the oppressive powers in the near future.

Since February 14, Manama has been conducting a brutal crackdown on protesters who want an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

In March, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait deployed their troops in Bahrain to reinforce the armed clampdowns.

According to some media reports, the harsh crackdown has so far left over 30 people dead.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have condemned the Bahraini and Saudi regimes for the heavy-handed tactics against civilians in the Persian Gulf state.
