Senior Bahraini Diplomat in Jerusalem: Iran Responsible for Crises across the Middle East

(Times of Israel) Lazar Berman - Dr. Abdulla bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Bahrain's Undersecretary for International Relations, said Sunday in Jerusalem, "What we see, speaking from a Bahraini perspective and the experience of my country with Iran, is continuous interference in domestic affairs in my country; support of extremism and terrorism, continuous smuggling of arms and explosives and drugs and narcotics." Khalifa related that Bahrain's King Hamid ibn Isa al Khalida had sent a congratulatory note to Iranian President Rouhani on the day of the signing of the 2015 nuclear deal. Two days later, Bahraini security forces intercepted an illicit arms shipment from Iran headed for Bahrain. "If you look into the crises across the Middle East, you will find one red thread that would go across all those crises. You would find an Iranian finger."
