Leader’s Top Advisor: UAE, Bahraini True Face Unmasked via Israel Deal
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Supreme Leader's top adviser for international affairs and Secretary-General of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening Ali Akbar Velayati strongly censured the normalization of ties with Israel by the Bahraini and UAE Sheikhdoms, warning them against pinning hope on the Muslims' archenemy, the US.

“The shameful move of Al Khalifa on implementing the Deal of the Century and betraying the Palestinian cause reveals the rashness of the Bahraini and Emirati rulers to build a house on the water by pinning hope on hollow promises of the Great Satan, US, who has shed the blood of thousands of innocent Muslims, both Arabs, and non-Arabs,” Velayati wrote in a statement on Sunday.

“The rulers of Bahrain and the UAE disclosed their real image, hurt the feelings of millions of free people, and further emboldened the enemies of the oppressed people of Palestine,” he added.

“American strategists, who have conceded numerous defeats in recent years in West Asia, seek no other goal by this ‘normalization show’ but to satisfy the Zionist lobby and rescue the Israeli PM and the US President,” Supreme Leader’s top advisor noted.

He went on to say that this shameful act has revealed the true intentions of the puppet rulers, awakened Muslim nations, and caused unity of Islamic groups and movements, further weakening the compromise process and strengthening the determination of the Resistance.

“The World Assembly of Islamic Awakening condemns this flagrant betrayal of the Palestinian cause, the Arab nations and Islamic Ummah; and calls on all Muslim governments and nations to reject the plan and spare no effort till the final defeat of the occupying Israeli regime,” Velayati stressed.

“Certainly, with the help of Almighty God, Palestine will be liberated from the river to the sea with the solidarity of the awakened nations and the great scholars and sympathizers of the Islamic Ummah, and the final victory will be for the Palestinian nation,” he concluded.

US President Donald Trump tweeted the news of the Israel-Bahrain normalization deal on Friday after he spoke by phone to Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Following the announcement at the White House, Palestinian officials condemned the Israel-Bahrain normalization deal announced by US President Donald Trump as another "stab in the back" by an Arab state.

Friday's accord normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and Bahrain comes one month after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) agreed to normalize ties with Israel under a US-brokered deal.

US President Donald Trump on August 13 announced a deal brokered by his government between Israel and the UAE which he said would lead to full normalization of ties between the two.

Critics see the deal as the latest attempt by Trump to save his presidential campaign against the Democrat Joe Biden.

In relevant remarks, Special Advisor to Iran's Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian said the rulers of the UAE and Bahrain should not pave the way for the Zionist plots in the region, warning them against relying on the US rotten lifeline.

"Bahraini regime's compromise with Israel is a great betrayal to the Islamic cause and Palestinians,” Hossein Amir Abdollahian wrote on his twitter account on Saturday.  

“The imprudent leaders in the UAE and Bahrain must not pave the way for the Zionist schemes", he said, adding, "They should learn lessons from history. Tomorrow is late! the US lifeline has worn out for years."

Bahrain's main opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, in a statement condemned a deal between Israel and Bahrain as an “ultimate betrayal of Islam and Arabs and a departure from the Islamic, Arab and national consensus".

It also said that the Israel-Bahrain agreement is void of any legitimacy whatsoever.

“Bahraini people, with all their religious, political, intellectual and societal differences, are unanimous in adhering to Palestine and rejecting the entire Zionist entity and standing with Palestine until the last piece of land is liberated from it,” the group added.

Al-Wefaq concluded that normalization with Israel is “a blatant contradiction to the will of the Bahraini people and a coup against their principled creed in rejecting the occupation of Palestine”.
