Iran’s puppets across the region have reacted furiously to Bahrain’s role in a workshop devoted to Palestinian peace and prosperity.
Leader of the “Hezbollah Brigades” Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis viciously condemned Bahrain and other GCC leaders. Despite the fact that Arabian Gulf leaderships have invested billions of dollars in supporting the Palestinian cause over recent years, Muhandis said that “the Palestinian cause and the confrontation with the Zionists cannot be successful without removing the Muslim leaders of the Gulf.” Muhandis, in a statement issued in recent days ranted away that Gulf leaders would “burn in shame and dig their own graves”. This of course has nothing to do with Palestine and everything to do with Iran’s project for penetrating the Arabian Gulf and destroying its leaderships.
Abu-Mahdi al-Muhandis first came to prominence as an international terrorist involved in a series of coordinated bombings across Kuwait in 1983 and an attempt to assassinate the Emir of Kuwait a few years later. Figures like Muhandis and Hezbollah’s Imad Mughniya, under Iranian direction, practicallyinvented the techniques of mass terrorist atrocities which were later inherited by Al-Qaeda and Daesh.
One could argue that Muhandis has the longest and most distinguished record of terrorism in the region, particularly after he was involved in setting up Shia terrorist groups after 2003 which massacred thousands of Iraqis and killed over 500 Coalition troops in Iraq.
It is a sign of the extent to which Tehran has forcibly dominated Iraq and other nations, that Muhandis is allowed to hold a senior role within Iraq’s national security apparatus, while also being effective head of the Al-Hashd al-Shaabi paramilitary forces which perpetrated sectarian cleansing operations across much of central Iraq under the presence of fighting Daesh.
It is also know that Muhandis and the Hezbollah Brigades oversaw the training of perhaps hundreds of Bahraini militants, who traveled to Iraq under false pretenses as part of pilgrimage convoys to learn how to plant explosives and undermine Bahrain’s stability. Muhandis and Iran’s support for these groups resulted in attacks which have so far killed over 20 police officers in Bahrain.
The concern is that in the context of recent tensions between America and Iran, Tehran will be seeking to once again undermine stability in Bahrain and other GCC states. The recent attacks on Bahrain’s embassy in Baghdad is perhaps an indicator of this escalating enmity.
In truth, while Bahrain and the Arab world have long regarded Israel as an enemy for the crimes it has committed against the Palestinian people; Muhandis and his paymasters in Tehran are more of a threat to Arab nations and the wider region. Iran has invested hundreds of billions of dollars funding paramilitary groups which have massacred thousands of innocent Syrians, Iraqis and Yemenis, while seeking to dominate the political systems in these states, along with Lebanon and elsewhere.
If the Palestinians, with Arab support, have spent over 70 years seeking to regain their territories – how long will the wider Arab world be willing to fight for to regain every last centimeter of Arab territory in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen from Iran and traitors like Muhandis?
