Sunni-Shia tensions mount as Bahrain arrests terrorist cell with links to Iran

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

Bahrain claims to have arrested a terrorist cell with links to Iran and Hezbollah, that was planning a series of attacks against the Sunni ruled Kingdom.

The announcement came as tensions mount between Saudi Arabia and Iran following Saturday’s execution of Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr and three other Shiites on terrorism charges.

Several protests, injuries and deaths have occurred due to the fallout from the dispute between the Middle East’s top Sunni and Shia powers.

With a growing hunger for power and domination of the Islamic world, Iran no longer just poses a threat to western ideology and democracies.

I say let them kill each other off and let Allah sort it out.
BTW, have you been following the Yemen war and have you noticed how ineffective KSA and their allies have been? With literally billions of dollars of US military equipment and training they can’t seem to make much headway… Too bad the US and Canada won’t fight this war for you like they have all others. Kuwait? Does anyone remember that KSA wouldn’t participate other than be a staging ground because they refused to kill fellow Muslims. I guess they are okay with killing fellow Muslims now. They’re just not doing a very good job of it.

Let them fight it out themselves and stay out of it, only problem is the shiny pony will want to save all the fighting aged males from both sides.

‘Iran is no longer a threat to the Western World’. Never, ever, believe what an Muslim tells you, it could be fatal.

Thanks for your reports Igal. They are needed to keep us up on what is going on over there. Things the MSM never tells us

To even all things out, maybe Justin, should also sell weapons to Iran. Then he can practice up on his weeping.

The entire middle east has nothing not one thing Canada needs, except quebec and Ontario who seem to love the oil the terrorist bastards produce.

Bahrain is the next one to see real bad unrest…the majority are shia, many Iranians, and they have close ties to Iran..
KSA will again put troops there and then it will hit the fan…

Good to see the buggers shooting each other.

All I ever hear from the lefties is how good the Iranian government it – perhaps there is more behind the scenes than they are willing to admit to?
