Middle East Monitor: Bahrain-‘Israel’ Ties Go Back to 1994
Middle East Monitor website stated that the latest comments by Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about relationships with a number of Arab countries highlight the links between Bahrain and ‘Israel', which "go back to 1994", Al-sharq.com said on Friday.
It said that the secret relationship started when former ‘Israeli' Environment Minister Yossi Sarid met with Bahrain's Foreign Minister, Mohamed Ben Al-Mubarak, and Health Minister Jawad Al-Arid. The three agreed that the Zionist entity could open a representative office in Manama.
In 2009, former ‘Israeli' President Shimon Peres and former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni met with the King of Bahrain in New York on the fringe of a religious dialogue conference. Last year, American rabbi Marc Schneier visited Manama on a mission to reinforce relations between ‘Israel' and Bahrain.
According to Al-Sharq.com, the call by Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid Bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa to establish a Middle Eastern body that includes the Zionist entity, Iran and Turkey, is evidence of the "golden relationship" with ‘Israel.'
The website indicated that the Qatari newspaper also pointed out that "Bahrain had violated an Arab League resolution which bans commercial deals with ‘Israel', companies which have relations with ‘Israel' and companies which deal with other firms that maintain relations with ‘Israel'".
