Lawmaker: Saudi Arabia's Historical Mistake Complicates Regional Situation

"If Saudi Arabia had not made the historical mistake of deploying its forces on the Bahraini soil, today the conditions in the Middle-East were not so difficult and complicated," Boroujerdi said during the meeting on Tuesday night.

Al-Kharafi, for his part, called on all sides involved in the regional developments to show restraint and assist with the settlement of the existing problems.

The regional countries should not allow the aliens to interfere in their affairs, he added.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, tens of people have been killed, hundreds of people have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured.

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

Yet, tension has grown high after the Saudi military intervention in Bahrain. Bahrain, which hosts the US Navy's fifth fleet, is viewed as a very sensitive and determining factor in the power equations of the region.

To help the Bahraini government crush the anti-government protests, Saudi Arabia has deployed over 1,000 troops in the country.

In relevant remarks earlier this week, a prominent Saudi political activist stressed unpopularity of the Saudi ruling system among the country's people, and warned Riyadh of the dire consequences of its military intervention in Bahrain.

Speaking to FNA, Mohammad al-Mos'ari voiced strong opposition to the Saudi military intervention in Bahrain to suppress peaceful protesters in the tiny Persian Gulf Island, and stated, "I believe that the fire of Bahrain's revolution will spread to Saudi Arabia."

The Saudi politician and activist also described Riyadh as the main element to be blamed for major problems in the other Persian Gulf littoral states.

"All problems will be solved in case the Al-Saud regime is toppled, "Mos'ari noted, and predicted that Saudi and Bahraini rulers would continue suppression of the Bahraini people.

Al-Mos'ari said he believes "any free opinion poll in Saudi Arabia would reveal that at least 70% of the people want the overthrow of the Al Saud dynasty".

He further underlined that a revolution in the Kingdom is now very likely, and noted, "I believe that popular protests will not be silenced."
