Bahraini MP: Manama in “Media Warfare”, Bahrainis Steadfast to Achieve Demands
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - MP al-Aswad indicated that the aforementioned comes in an attempt to enhance the Bahraini regime's reputation and represent for the public a far-from-reality image; added up to the deliberate negligence of the international community towards what is occurring in the country.
In an interview with an-Nour Radio, al-Aswad asserted that there is obvious "negligence by the regime and the international community regarding what it happening in Bahrain."
"Also, there is clear absence of Bahrain's happenings on the Arab League agenda," the Bahraini opposition MP iterated.
"The Bahraini issue is not brought up for discussion in a clear and serious way. All the atrocities carried out by the Bahraini regime are occulted, and this is occurring under an international cover," he affirmed.
"Linking the Bahraini issue with what is happening in the region is very dangerous; for the Bahraini situation is a local conflict between those demanding democracy and others adherent to dictatorship," MP al-Aswad noted.
Moreover, al-Aswad described the ongoing battle in Bahrain as strictly "media warfare", through which the regime aims at gaining the support of the Western media.
He pointed out that the Western media, on the one hand, tackles the Bahraini issue in total "double standards" through marginalizing the Bahraini people's demands, and stressed that "the Western media deliberately ignored what is happening in Bahrain, considering the latter a small country."
On another hand, al-Aswad asserted that the Bahrainis are ongoing in their movements until they achieve their demands, adding that the misleading regime policies will not dissuade them.
