Imam Khamenei: Nothing Can Silence Bahrainis Anymore

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei accused the Bahraini regime of “blatant foolishness and insanity” for stripping a prominent Muslim cleric of his citizenship, saying Bahraini youths cannot be silenced anymore.

Imam Khamenei (archive)Imam Khamenei’s website on Saturday quoted his eminence as saying that the “persevering and knowledgeable” Sheikh Issa Qassim was a moderate who would have worked to “prevent extremist tactics.”

“Now, no obstacle can prevent these young enthusiasts from rising up,” the Leader said.

“In Bahrain, a ruthless and arrogant minority is oppressing the majority; and has now carried out an act of aggression against the diligent scholar, Sheikh Qassim. This is insanity and stupidity,” the Leader added.

Bahrain revoked the citizenship of Sheikh Qassim this week, accusing him of fomenting ‘sectarianism and violence.’

Ayatollah Khamenei also pointed to the enemy plots against Iran, saying,

“They created Daesh [ISIL] to defeat the Islamic Republic. Iraq and the Levant were a prelude to crippling Iran.”

However, the Leader stressed,

“It was the might of the Islamic Republic that brought them to their knees.”

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with the families of Iranian military advisers killed in Syria while on a mission against the Takfiri terrorists wreaking havoc in the Arab country.

Also meeting with the Leader on Saturday were the families of the victims of a bomb attack in Iran in early 1980s.
