Yemen's political council slams Bahrain- Israel deal

Yemen's political council slams Bahrain’s signing of deal to establish formal ties with Zionist regime.

A member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council has denounced Bahraini officials over signing a joint communiqué with Zionist regime’s authorities to establish full diplomatic relations, after the Persian Gulf kingdom reached a US-brokered normalization deal with the Tel Aviv regime last month.


“Bahrain's normalization of relations [with Israel] is condemned; although its (Manama) regime is not considered a threat even in the event of a war with the Zionist regime,” Mohammed Ali al-Houthi wrote in a post published on his official Twitter page on Sunday.


“Nevertheless, normalization [of relations with Tel Aviv] is a crime, and whoever commits it is a tyrant that will never be guided as cited in the Holy Qur'an,” the Yemeni official pointed out.


At a ceremony in Manama on Sunday evening, Bahraini and Zionist officials signed a joint communiqué establishing full diplomatic relations. The Manama and Zionist regimes are now expected to open embassies.


The Zionist delegation, led by Zionist regime’s National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, flew on an El Al Israel Airlines charter flight from Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, to Bahrain and was accompanied by US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin.


Meanwhile, the Grand Mufti of the Sultanate of Oman, Sheikh Ahmad bin Hamad al-Khalili, has censured attempts by a number of Arab states to normalize ties with the Israeli regime.


“A new negative phenomenon has emerged in the Muslim world, which seeks to befriend the enemy that the God Almighty has commanded us to oppose… A number of prominent Muslim scholars, whom we treated with considerable respect, were quick to do so,” read part of a tweet by Sheikh Khalili.


The normalization deals have drawn widespread condemnation from Palestinians, who seek an independent state in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, with East al-Quds as its capital. They say the deals ignore their rights and do not serve the Palestinian cause.


The head of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement’s political bureau condemns the US-brokered deals that the UAE and Bahrain signed to normalize ties with Israel, warning about “no mercy” for the Arab states that betrayed fellow Palestinians.

The Palestinian leadership has condemned normalization agreements with Zionist regime as “a stab in the back” for Palestinian aspirations to establish an independent state of their own.
