Iran Cleric Praises Bahraini Resistance

“Well-done to you, because [when] they meant to crush your morals, you shattered their spirits; they meant to break your jihadi spirits and you rose and resisted and as soon as you saw a small opportunity, you turned up in Pearl Square and other spots and shouted to demand of your rights,” IRNA quoted Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami as saying on Friday.

The cleric was referring to the continued anti-regime protests in Bahrain and the clashes with security forces in Manama's Pearl Square, despite the employment of Saudi-led troops from a number of neighboring Arab countries.

Addressing crowds of worshippers in Tehran, Ayatollah Khatami stressed that all dictators face a similar fate and that Bahrain's ruling Al Khalifa family is also doomed to step down.

“Rulers who cruelly pressure people will certainly not stay [in power],” the cleric said.

Tehran's interim Friday Prayers leader condemned the Saudi atrocities committed against Bahraini activists and civilians and sympathized with the victims of the violent repression of peaceful demonstrator in the Persian Gulf state.

“Saudi occupiers mercilessly keep committing crimes in Bahrain, crimes that are in violation of all [human rights] legal regulations,” Ayatollah Khatami said.

“Under these regulations laws, doctors and nurses have immunity even if they treat the enemies injured and look after them; but Saudi occupiers in Bahrain arrest, punish and imprison doctors and nurses,” he added.

According to local sources, dozens of people have been killed and hundreds have been arrested during the government clampdown on peaceful demonstrations, while several women, including doctors, university professors and students, have been kidnapped by security forces.

Human rights groups and the families of protesters arrested during the crackdowns say that most detainees have been physically and mentally abused, and that the whereabouts of many of them remain unknown.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have criticized the Al Khalifa regime for its brutal crackdown on civilians.
