Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry summoned the deputy charge d’affaires at the Iraqi embassy on Monday to denounce footage of former Iraqi prime minister Nuri al-Maliki criticizing Manama’s crackdown on the Shiite opposition, Reuters said.

The politician attended a meeting last week organized by the February 14 movement, Bahraini activists who Manama designated a terrorist group in 2014.

“Discrimination, marginalization… have reached a severe limit on the people of Bahrain,” Maliki said, according to videos from the event.

He was also quoted as urging dialogue with those “demanding freedom and justice” to protect Bahrain and its people, Sunnis and Shiites.

Manama described Maliki’s statements as “blatant and unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of Bahrain,” state news agency BNA reported.

Bahrain, like Iraq, is seen as a flashpoint for the proxy war between the two regional arch-rivals Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
