U.S. Hosts Bahraini Prince as Monarchy Vows Harsher Crackdown


Institute for Public Accuracy http://www.accuracy.org 

The Obama administration is hosting Bahraini Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa in Washington just as the Bahraini regime is vowing a harsher crackdown on anti-government protesters. Democracy Now reported this morning, "Appearing with al-Khalifa at the State Department, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to directly mention the repression of protests, referring only to Bahrain’s 'internal issues.'"

Secretary Clinton stated: "Bahrain is a valued ally of the United States. We partner on many important issues of mutual concern to each of our nations and to the regional and global concerns as well. I’m looking forward to a chance to talk over with His Royal Highness a number of the issues both internally and externally that Bahrain is dealing with and have some better understanding of the ongoing efforts that the government of Bahrain is undertaking. So again, His Royal Highness, welcome to the United States." See video: http://www.democracynow.org/2012/5/10/headlines#5103

Clinton’s comments came one day after the Bahraini government vowed to escalate its crackdown on anti-government demonstrators. Speaking to Reuters, a Bahraini government spokesman said: "We are looking into the perpetrators and people who use print, broadcast and social media to encourage illegal protest and violence around the country. If applying the law means tougher action, then so be it." The warning came days after the arrest of the prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab, who has been featured on IPA news releases. In a statement, Amnesty International declared Rajab a "prisoner of conscience" and called for his immediate release. Another prominent activist, Abdulhadi Alkhawaja, has been on a hunger strike for three months protesting his life imprisonment.

Let me rephrase their duplicitous, hypocritical, class deformed ,fascist language:    Bahrain is a valued dictatorship, ally of the U.S.


We partner on many fascist issues, which makes Bahrain not subject to "humanitarian WAR", like the uppity Libyan and Syrian dictatorships which do not Dance to Fascist U.S. EMPIRE, WESTERN FASCISM, NATO FASCISM, ZIONIST FASCISM.


Hillary represents the corrupt State Department, written by Sibel Edmonds in Classified Woman, where Fascists, Zionists, collude with the Justice Department, FBI and Pentagon to promote Fascist Zionism, Fascist Neocons, who corrupt Congressman, promote War, dictatorships, Fascism, and Espionage, mass corruption, i.e. criminals in Congress,in the Sate Dept.


Hillary is a class shill, Empire thug, fascist hypocrite, A DISGUSTING EXAMPLE OF CORRUPTED FEMINISM cheering on  fascist dictators.
