"Al-Watan" Newspaper: Policy of Programmed Attack on the United States

Bahrain Mirror: In less than three months, Bahrainis read in the Royal Court newspaper, "Al-Watan", enough of the policy of programmed attack on the United States. The Majestic Alliance between the Royal Court and the Salafists, scored hostile positions to Washington and its ambassador in Manama Thomas Krajeski, on the background of a report of the US foreign Department about the state of human rights, published on 19 April 2013, it devoted 48 pages to expose the regime's crimes in a somehow balanced humanitarian-oriented way.

The report considered Bahrain as " not a constitutional monarchy" and that human rights are violated, which provoked the opinion columnists in this newspaper, headed by Yousif Bin Khalil, Editor in Chief, who is close to the decision-makers in the Royal Court, to repeated attacks on the United States and its ambassador Krajeski, who was accused by Manama "to interfere in its internal affairs" and that "he carries an agenda for political change in the country and biased to the opposition."

Bin Khalil says in an article dated 5 May 2013, "Whenever we tried to take advantage of the American experience, we obtain criticism from the U.S. administration and we are looked at with more bias and lack of objectivity in favor of political change agenda."

Bin Khalil goes further by directing his criticism straight to Krajeski, "we may find an excuse to the U.S. administration when it only listens to its ambassador in Manama Thomas Krajeski, who however he changes his way of dealing with the government, his agenda for political change is clear and continuous, has not and will never change."

In an article on 7 April 2013, Bin Khalil carried out an implicit threat to the U.S. ambassador "If the government is unable to stop the interventions of the U.S. Embassy in Manama, there are other effective means to stop this interference in our national interests, and diplomats at the embassy know very well what are those means, to which the door is not open yet" which led Krajeski to file a complaint to two ministers in the government about it.

He continues, in another article, "we noticed, since 2011, the increasing number of American officials who visited the Kingdom, publically or privately, for many talks and consultations, and I do not think that the issue of those officials visits to provide advice to the government of Bahrain has become acceptable anymore".
He claimed that "the Iranian statements is identical, in content and timing, with many American statements, where the external pressure comes in parallel and simultaneous and in a phenomenal way ; publicly vague, but well-known in private."

The "Al-Watan" campaign reached its climax toward Krajeski when it accused him on 13 June 2013 to "encourage violence and collaboration with the followers of the terrorist Hezbollah," and respond to what it called "political forces calling for Obama to change U.S. Ambassador biased to the terrorists causes of crisis."

The columnist Sawsan Al Shaer on 13 May 2013, addressed the state officials to carry with them the fight "the state that formed the commissions of inquiry and came to our doorstep giving us lessons in protecting the civil rights of individuals," referring to the United States. In her article last March, Al Shaer threatened to form cells for "Al-Qaeda" in Bahrain in order to make chaos in front of the escalating claims to democracy and respect for human rights, and a direct threat to states and various Western powers to not to demand respect for human rights in Bahrain."

Bahrain Mirror: a phased project launched by members of the "Al-Asalah" Islamic Society: the current MP Abdel Halim Murad (+97333222006), Sheikh Faisal Al Ghurair (+97333222006), Khalid Al Balushi (+9736706000), and Abdul Karim Al Emadi (+97333111202). It aims to equip insurgents to fight in Syria, or to provide them with combat equipment, such as anti-aircraft missiles.

And those responsible for it are openly active, since 2012, aided by a number of volunteers, through the establishment of daily campaigns interspersed by auctions for fundraising in Bahraini mosques; which are: " Shikhan Al-Farsi Mosque" in Riffa, "Abu Hanifa Mosque " in Busaiteen, "Nadi Al-Sahel Mosque" in Hidd, "Sheikh Isa bin Ali Mosque" in Muharraq, "AlEsmah mosque" in Hamad Town, and "the Western Galali mosque" in Galali region; in addition to mosques in Isa Town and Manama. Murad oversees the donations that are held in "Shikhan mosque" in Riffa, while Al Ghurair oversees the campaign held in "Abu Hanifa Mosque "in Busaiteen, and those are the two main centres.

The value of the stock per share for the financial donation ranges from BHD 500 (about US$ 1,300) to 1,000 dinars (about US.$ 2,600).

Since the launch of the project in 2012, about 4 campaigns took place belonging to "Equipping Ghazi" project. The first campaign of the project was launched in mid-2012, and was aimed to buying anti-aircraft for fighters in Syria. The commander of Salafist "brigades of Al-Sham's Hawks" Abu Isa Al-Sheikh announced in August 2012 that Bahraini financiers donated to arm 85 fighter which he called 'invaders' in "AlZawya Mountain". In another announcement for an armed squad, who did not reveal its name, stated that "it received aid from Bahraini financiers for equipping anti-aircraft missiles". The value of an anti-aircraft is BHD 8,000 (about 21 thousand U.S. dollars).

In November 2012, the organizers of the project launched the second phase to train about 200 fighters, worth of BHD 1,000 per share, including a total of BHD 200 thousand (about half a million U.S. dollars).

In January 2013, the third phase was launched, under the title "those who equip an invader are invaders" to arm 300 fighters, worth BHD 1,000 per share, including a total of BHD 300 thousand (about 760 thousand U.S. dollars).

In March 2013, the fourth phase of the project was launched, which is the largest, and aims to equip 500 fighters, worth BHD 1,000 per share, including a total of BHD 500 dinars (about one million and 300 thousand U.S. dollars).

On 9 June 2013, MP Abdel Halim Murad announced that operators of the project were able to sell about 370 of the offered shares. He said on his Twitter account @ Murad_bh "we happily announce that we have reached in "Al-Ghazi Project" to 370 fighters for Al-Quseer & Damascus", pointing out that the remaining is "130 shares of the closure of the campaign".

And he stated in a subsequent Tweet on14 June 2013 "we happily announce the entrance of quantities of quality gear and weapons to Syria, and the Mujahedeen began fighting the Christians and the Devil's Party with it".

In a statement by Dr. Faisal Al Ghurair, on 24 June 2013; "during the previous four months and to this date, more than 1530 fighter for AlGhazi project were armed". The cost of equipping this number of fighters is about one and a half million dinars (about 4 million U.S. dollars).
