Pro-Saudi Bahraini FM: Palestine is a side issue, Iran should be the main focus

MANAMA, Bahrain – Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa has made the bizarre claim that Palestine is only a side issue and that the main focus should be Iran in a Tweet made on Wednesday.

“It’s not helpful to pick a fight with the USA over side issues while we together fight the clear and present danger of The Theo-Fascist Islamic republic,” he tweeted.

His reference to picking a fight with the USA “over side issues” was in reference to the huge outpouring of condemnation of the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. 

An issue that is strongly supported in the Muslim World was dismissed as a “side issue” by Bahrain.

This is unsurprising as the ruling al-Khalifa regime is entirely propped up by Saudi Arabia who are making behind-the-scenes rapprochements with Israel.

He then made a reference to “The Theo-Fascist Islamic republic” in reference to Iran, ignoring that its main backer and the reason the regime has survived is because of the most extremist and puritanical Islamic country in the world, Saudi Arabia, where women are not even allowed to drive a vehicle.
