Senior MP: Saudi Arabia Influenced by Power Illusions

Service : Politic
TEHRAN, April 24 (ICANA) – A senior Iranian legislator blasted Saudi officials' recent provocative remarks against Tehran, and said the Saudi regime is under the illusion of having enough power to wage a war against Iran after it attacked the tiny Persian Gulf island of Bahrain through collaboration with the al-Khalifa regime.

Senior MP: Saudi Arabia Influenced by Power Illusions

"The Saudis are under illusion and they think that deployment of their forces in a tiny country like Bahrain and suppression of the defenseless people shows that they are powerful," Vice-Chairman of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA on Sunday.

Noting that Saudi Arabia could launch a military invasion of Bahrain through western assistance, Ebrahimi warned "they should rest assured that Iran's saber-rattling and power will make a burning hell for them".

Tension is growing 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 more than 1,000 troops to the country.

Iran warned Riyadh that it was "playing with fire" by deploying troops in neighboring Bahrain and that such measure will increase hate for the Saudi regime among the regional nations.

Bahrain's government has continued its military crackdown on anti-government protesters who demand the overthrow of the al-Khalifa dynasty on top of constitutional reforms.

Large numbers of people have lost their lives in Bahrain so far and hundreds of others have sustained injuries following the violent crackdown on the anti-government protesters.
