Iran Escalates Threats Against Gulf States After Peace Deals with Israel

'The executioner ruler of Bahrain should await the harsh revenge of the Mujahideen...'

Since President Donald Trump fostered peace deals between Israel and two Arab Gulf states, Iran has launched an intimidation campaign against them, The Investigative Project on Terrorism reported.

Foreign ministers for The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed an agreement to normalize relationships with Israel in September.

“Alliance with the Zionist regime will put the security of Bahrain and the Emirates at a greater risk than in the past,” said the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission in a statement on Sept. 13.

Iranian deputy House Speaker Hassan Abdel Lahian said that the two Gulf states could be punished for their normalized relations with Israel.

“Any apparent or clandestine activity by the Israeli intelligence services or their agents in the Islamic Republic or the region, the response will not be directed at the Zionist entity only, and the UAE will be part of the response,” Iranian deputy House Speaker Hassan Abdel Lahian said.

Iran’s threats against the Gulf states are not new.

Bahrain has thwarted Iran’s terrorist plots against the state, including a planned attack in March 2018 that resulted in the arrest of a 116-person terrorist cell that was “formed and supported by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,” Al Arabiya reported.

“The executioner ruler of Bahrain should await the harsh revenge of the Mujahideen [jihadies] aiming to liberate Quds [Jerusalem] and the proud Muslim nation of this country,” said Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, a terrorist organization, in a statement.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani promised a “dangerous future” for the UAE after the peace accord.

“They [UAE] better be mindful,” said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. “They have committed a huge mistake, a treacherous act. We hope they will realize this and abandon this wrong path.”
