German MEP Blasts Western Double Standard on Bahrain Repression

Sabine Loesing of the radical leftist party The Left (Die Linke) wrote in an editorial for the Berlin-based daily Junge Welt that the western policy on Bahrain was a clear case of double standard.

She cited a German expert of the IMI think-tank, Michael Haid as saying that the

western double standard was linked to the American military presence in Bahrain.

Mrs Loesing pointed also to statements by an advisor to European Union foreign policy

chief Catherine Ashton who defended the bloody crackdown in Bahrain.

Testifying recently in the foreign policy committee of the European Parliament,

Robert Cooper seemed to suggest the Bahraini regime had the right to restore order by using lethal force against peaceful protesters in the Persian Gulf kingdom.
