Al-Wefaq Society: Bahraini People to Stand along Palestinian Nation Forever
TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Secretary-General of Bahrain's main opposition group, the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, Sheikh Hussein al-Daihi stressed the Bahraini people’s support for the Palestinian nation.

Al-Daihi pointed to the agreement of Al-Khalifa and Israeli regimes to resume ties, and said the Emirati and Bahraini rulers have targeted the Palestinian cause under the pretext of maintaining peace. 

The al-Wefaq Society also announced on Sunday that the Al-Khalifa regime has forced Bahraini religious, sports, and civil institutions to issue a statement in support of the compromise with the Israeli regime.

Al-Wefaq is Bahrain's largest opposition group.

Following the announcement of ties normalization agreement between the Israeli regime and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on August 13, US President Donald Trump also announced on September 11 that the normalization of relations between Bahrain and the Israeli regime.

The Emirati and Bahraini authorities are supposed to meet the Zionist Regime’s authorities in the White House today (on Tuesday), and officially sign the agreement on normalizing ties with the regime. 

These agreements have been widely criticized in the Muslim 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 a statement earlier, the al-Wefaq 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”.
