This is ‘Spirit of Humanity’, the boat that left from Cyprus to Gaza with five brave Bahrainis on board on a humanitarian trip to send food and medicine for the people of the open air prison called Gaza. The ship was hijacked by the Israeli Navy and all on board were detained.
Now knowing how ruthless the Israeli regime is and their unpredictability, lack of humanity and disregard to human rights, the Bahrain government acted swiftly to gain the release of these Bahrainis and have now flown back home safely on a royal jet.
That jet landed in Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport.
This apparently pissed off this dude..
إن الزيارة فاجأتنا جميعا، وأشعرتنا بالصدمة، فهي تمت بدون تنسيق مع ممثلي الشعب (كالعادة)، وبسرعة هائلة وفي غموض بيّن، ونحن نسأل الخارجية كيف تم ترتيب الزيارة بهذه السهولة والسرعة؟ وهل حدثت اتصالات مباشرة بين المسئولين البحرينيين والصهاينة؟ ومن رتب نزول الوفد في مطار بن جوريون؟ وهل توجد دائرة اتصال مباشرة مع الصهاينة؟ ولماذا لم يتم استخدام وسيط ثالث من دون الاتصال مع العدو الصهيوني؟ وكيف يتم ارسال وفد بحريني الى مطار العدو الصهيوني الغاصب وتتم الاستهانة بثوابت الشعب بهذه السهولة؟
This visit was a surprise to us, and we are shocked. This procedure was done without the representatives of the people and swiftly under great secrecy. We ask the Foreign Ministry how this visit was planned and why was it so swift? Were there direct contacts between the Bahraini and Zoinist officials? And who organized the landing in Ben Gurion Airport? Why wasn’t there a third party between us and the Zionists? How can they (FM) send a Bahraini delegation and disregard the beliefs and principles of the people so easily?
إن احتجاز البحرينيين الخمسة يجب ألا يكون حصان طروادة لكسر المقاطعة، وألا يستخدم كحُجة لكسر المناعة الشعبية، فالشعب البحريني العربي المسلم يرفض التطبيع. والمقاطعة هي السلاح الوحيد المتبقي للشعوب العربية، فلماذا تتخذ بين الحين والآخر خطوات تضعفه وتنال من تأثيره. فهذا خروج على ثوابت الشعوب العربية التي تُصر على المقاطعة وترفض أي شكل من أشكال التطبيع مع الصهاينة.
The detaining of the Bahraini Five shouldn’t be a ‘Trojan Horse’ to break our boycott against the Israelis, nor change our feelings, for the Bahraini people is an Arab Islamic people who are against Zionism. Boycotting is the only weapon left for us Arab countries, so why do we compromise that from time to time? This is a betrayal to our principles and we refuse any relations with the Zionists.
Now, MP Adel Abdulrahman Al-Moawdeh is the head of the Foriegn Affairs and Defense committee in our parliament, but I think he thinks he’s the Foreign minister as well.. Well you’re not.
The main objective of their landing in Tel Aviv was not to have some hoummos, participate in a bar mitzfah and buy a souvenier skull cap, it was to return these five Bahraini citizens back home safe and sound.
This is what the Foreign Ministry should always do, make sure that our citizens are safe everywhere they go and insure their safe return home when in danger. We all know they haven’t been so good at it, with citizens still detained in Saudi and UAE, whom mind you are both members of the GCC, the easiest people we can negoiate with in the WORLD.
What sickens me is how MP Al-Moawdeh actually wants those detainees to stay longer in the occupied territories under Israeli guns whilst the Bahraini official tip-toe around to find a third party to help us negoiate the release of our fellow Bahrainis, just so they don’t hurt the ‘feelings’ of the Bahraini people.
I’m very sorry, but when it comes to diamond rings falling into a toilet full of crap (exactly the same contents of our dear MPs heads), pulling them out is the only thing I would think about.. And the most important thing is that I wouldn’t do it just to start relations with Sh*t!
Lives are more important that egoes..
On a lighter note: The Bahraini Five are planning another shot at entering Gaza..That’s Punk Rock!
