VIDEO — Bahraini Civilians Suppressed by the US-Supported Al-Khalifa Regime For Holding Peaceful Demonstrations

In Bahrain there is ongoing repression of the civilian population by the Khalifa regime’s security and military apparatus, which is predominately comprised of foreign nationals.

The following is a footage from the opposition outlet Media Centre of the Revolution in Bahrain about a peaceful protest that was suppressed on May 10, 2014.

While Bahraini citizens are suppressed by the Khalifa regime and its Saudi allies, the US government and the European Union say nothing, instead selling these Arab dictatorships more arms. The hypocrisy of the same Arab tyrants and their Western backers is clear: they talk about intervening in Syria for humanitarian reasons to save the people there, but fall silent when it comes to Bahrain, where an unarmed civilian population is being repressed daily.

West not concerned about Bahraini, Saudi HR records: Analyst — video included

The West is more concerned about selling arms to Bahrain and Saudi Arabia than the two countries’ appalling human rights records, an analyst tells Press TV.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV on Saturday, Chris Bambery stated that when Western statesmen visit Saudi Arabia, they maintain silence about the country’s human rights records.

“They (Western statesmen) go to Saudi Arabia to sell their arms, to do contracts. They are not there concerned about Saudis’ human rights record, let alone in Bahrain. So, really it’s not on the agenda,” he noted.

Bambery, a leading member of the Scotland-based International Socialist Group, further asserted that US President Barack Obama apparently did not mention a word about Bahrain during his visit to Saudi Arabia in late March.

“Obama will not be making any speeches about the human rights situation in Bahrain…. The contrast is that Obama is saying we’re committed to staying in Bahrain, and yet the regime, an autocracy, undemocratic [regime] with a disgusting human rights record is still killing its own people,” he noted.

Bambery added, “It is a story that could be shouted from the rooftops, but it’s not. And the reason for that is essentially not so much the importance of Bahrain and the Al Khalifas to the West, although not unimportant, but in particular the importance of Saudi Arabia, who of course has been crucial to suppressing the Bahrain revolution and maintaining the repression inside that [country].”

The uprising in Bahrain started in mid-February 2011. On March 13 that year, forces from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were dispatched to the country at Manama’s request to help quell the nationwide protests.

Last month, Amnesty International denounced the “relentless repression” of anti-regime protesters in the tiny Persian Gulf country, blaming Bahraini security forces for their repeated use of “excessive force to quash anti-government protests.”

Human rights watch claims there is evidence that Bahraini security forces routinely detain and abuse children suspected of participating in anti-government protests. That’s according to a report, published today. Here we have a quote ‘Information recently obtained from victims, family members, and local rights activists suggests that Bahraini authorities often hold children for long periods in detention and subject them to similar forms of mistreatment as adult detainees, including beatings and threats of torture.’ Nicholas McGeehan, one of the authors of this press release, told RT some of the alarming details.

Henningsen: Bahrain is a Closed Society and the West is on the Same Path [video]

December 12, 2012

Leading Bahraini human rights activist, Nabeel Rajab, has had his prison term cut from three to two years. Rajab has been imprisoned since August, on charges of organizing illegal gatherings and inciting violence.

The activist’s lawyer was demanding his release. The uprising in Bahrain has been ongoing for almost two years now, with the Shia majority demanding democratic reform from the Sunni ruling family.

RT talks to geopolitical analyst Patrick Henningsen.

“Anything that the regime is going to give way on will be a positive thing,” he told RT. However he noted that, “to have any genuine democratic reform in a country like Bahrain, that is housing the US fifth naval fleet and at the same time Washington and London and Tel-Aviv are talking aggressively, bating Iran into a military conflict, perhaps, that makes it a huge problem to see any reform happening now in Bahrain,” Henningsen said.

Bahrain regime represents modern feudalism: Rodney Shakespear [video]

PressTV
October 29, 2012

The Bahraini Al Khalifa monarchy serves only its own interests, representing a form of feudalism which usurps the people, a prominent political analyst tells Press TV.

Bahraini protesters have once again held demonstrations against the Al Khalifa regime in several towns on Friday after the Eid al-Adha prayers, with protesters calling for the downfall of the Manama regime.

The demonstrators also demanded an end to the regime’s violent crackdown on peaceful protests.

Bahrain’s revolution began in mid-February 2011. The government promptly launched a brutal crackdown on the protests and called in Saudi-led Arab forces from neighboring Persian Gulf states to help crush the demonstrations.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Rodney Shakespeare, chairman of the Committee against Torture in Bahrain, from London, to further discuss the issue.
