Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani sharply criticized the “Saudi conspiracy” to annex Bahrain and said it is already doomed to failure. He said the sheikhs in the Persian Gulf coastal countries must understand that Bahrain belongs only to its own people. Hamedani said that “the plot” was devised by people with “childish thoughts,” adding that the time when colonial countries divided lands is long over. He added that Al‑ Khalifa now feel that they have failed miserably in the face of Bahrain’s brave and zealous nation and believe that annexing Bahrain to Saudi Arabia will save it. He urged scholars of Bahrain and other Islamic countries to voice their opposition to the plot by taking the issue to international bodies.
