MP: Bahrain Trying to Divert Attention

“Anti-Iran letters to international circles will not justify armed assault on protesters because the image of Bahrain's Al Khalifa dynasty has been severely undermined at the United Nations and the European Union,” Head of the Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Sunday.

He told ICANA that Bahrain's complaint against Iran would yield no result nor would it resolve the Persian Gulf island's domestic crisis.

Boroujerdi emphasized that Al Khalifa dynasty has lost its credibility in the world as it is trying to quell protests in Bahrain by using weapons and foreign military forces.

He went on to stress the rights of Bahrainis in determining their future.

On Sunday, another member of the commission Esmail Kowsari dismissed the allegations that Iran is meddling in the internal affairs of Bahrain as baseless, and called on Bahraini officials to offer any evidence they have of Iranian interference to the United Nations.

He added that anti-Iran remarks by Bahraini officials are aimed at diverting public attention from the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa.

Since mid-February, thousands of anti-government protesters in Bahrain have poured into the streets, calling for an end to four decade Al Khalifa rule.

On March 13, Saudi-led forces were dispatched to the Persian Gulf Island at Manama's request.

According to local sources, dozens of people have been killed and hundreds have been arrested so far during the government crackdown on the peaceful demonstrations.

Moreover, most Bahraini media outlets have been blocked and several mosques have been demolished by the Bahraini government.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have condemned the Bahraini and Saudi regimes for their heavy-handed tactics against the Bahraini population.
