“We strongly condemn the disgraceful move of treacherous leaders of the UAE and Bahrain in setting up diplomatic ties with the Zionist regime”, he wrote in a message on Monday, noting that the Islamic Ummah and the Axis of Resistance will definitely avenge the betrayers.

“They have betrayed the Islamic Ummah and the Palestinian cause through taking refuge with the enemy,” he further said.
“The rulers of the UAE and Bahrain have slaughtered the dignity and independence of their nations for their vested interests,” Aghajanpour went on to say.
He stressed that this shameful act will certainly remain forever in the historical memory of the oppressed nation of Palestine and all freedom-seekers of the world.
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.
On August 13, President Trump 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 on Sunday, Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) vehemently condemned the Bahraini regime’s normalization of ties with Israel, stressing appropriate responses for the treacherous act.
“The scandalous move of Al-Khalifa and the puppet regime ruling Bahrain in setting up ties with the Zionist regime, which was done against the will and aspirations of the Muslim people of that country, is a great folly, lacks any legitimacy and will receive appropriate responses,” the IRGC said in a statement.
“The domino of normalization of ties between the Zionist regime and the rulers of certain Arab countries, which, through the engineering of the White House and the hated and stupid US president, seeks to impose humiliation on Muslim nations and plunder their resources and wealth and provide security for the occupiers of Palestine and usurpers of Holy al-Quds, will never achieve its sinister goal and, on the contrary, will further broaden the Islamic Ummah's power and dignity and reinvigorate their resolve in revealing the hidden capacities of the anti-Zionist Resistance to repel Israeli cancerous tumor from the geography of the Islamic world,” IRGC added.
“The evil and tyrannical actions of the oppressive regime in Bahrain like other wicked and treacherous schemes of compromise will not bring any achievement for the US and supporters of child-killing Zionists but will expose the perpetrators of these betrayals and malice to the fury and revenge of the Islamic Ummah, especially the Shiite people of Bahrain,” the statement said.
