The six states - Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates - also condemned Iran's "continued occupation of the three
Emirati islands" of Abu Musa, Greater Tunb and Lesser Tunb, which lie in the strategic Strait of Hormuz entrance to the Gulf.
I find this unbelievable. Here we have the likes of Saudi Arabia who are sending bits of everything into Syria condemning the Iranian regime for the
mass killings and violations of international law in the war torn country. With that, the six gulf states concluded a two day summit which praised
Bahrain and pointed its fingers at Iran for a Shia led uprising which breifly occured in Bahrain last year.
I don't know too much about the disputed Islands as it hasn't been a big issue.
"The council expressed its rejection and condemnation of the continuing Iranian interference in the affairs of the Gulf Cooperation Council's
states and called on Iran to stop these policies," a joint statement issued at the end of the summit said on Tuesday.
The council said they "reject and denounce" Iran's "continued interference" in their internal affairs that increase regional tension and threaten
security and stability.
With that the nations apparently expressed their sadness for the situation currently happening in Syria. Again they have focused on the Assad regime
for the bloodshed and with that have officially recognised the newly formed opposition National Coalition as the legitimate representatives of the
The GCC leaders expressed "deep sadness over the continued shedding of blood by the regime and the destruction of cities and infrastructure,
making political transition a demand which must be rapidly implemented".
I can't see how the likes of Saudi Arabia can stand their and blatantly lie about what is happening in Syria. It is well known they are releasing
prisoners on death row who are then sent to fight for the opposition forces in Syria. As for Bahrain, I'm sure they would be looking for any excuse
for the people who were killed in that uprising in their country last year.
Obviously these six western puppets are going to stick together through thick and thin, but I find it amazing how at least two of them (who are well
known for violating human rights themselves) can start blaming other countries for the poor decisions regarding the issues happening in their own
countries. Blaming Iran seems to be the going rate today even though some of these states have been busted red hand promoting the tensions in
Only days before, Iran slammed the Canadian government for removing the exiled Iranian opposition group "Mujahadeen-e-Khalq" from its terrorist
blacklist. In another move which seems to be aimed at the Iranian regime, the Canadians have added the Quds Force (A unit of the Iranian Revolutionary
Guard) on to the blacklist.
Quds Force Blacklisted
The Iranian foreign ministry responded on Monday, saying that Canada was "using the issue of terrorism as a tool and violating its international
The MEK had a long history of violent attacks against both western and Iranian targets dating from the 1970s until 1992, when it stormed Iranian
diplomatic missions in the US, Britain, Canada, Germany, Switzerland and France.
It gave up armed conflict in 1993 and has since been described as an "opposition movement in exile", saying it now works to overthrow the Iranian
administration through peaceful means.
Considering the attacks committed by the Mujahadeen, I find it surprising that anyone would take them off their blacklist. But apparently the group
have turned their focus to the Iranian Regime.. Are the West getting ready for what we have all been waiting for? Or could this group recently removed
from the blacklist be used similar to the rebels fighting in Syria? You be the judge...
