Uncovering the Hidden Realities of Hizbollah: Part 3 - Iranian Rafidi Shia Proxies in Other Lands - Bahrain
Posted by Abu.Iyaad, Editor in General
There are subsidiary branches (proxies) of Hizbollah in the Gulf states and the Arabian peninsula, all of them having the same aqidah and the same manhaj.
Hizbollah in Bahrain
During the Iranian Rafidi Shia revolution (the one praised and lauded Abu A'laa Mawdudi, the Tahriris, and other misguided innovators) numerous parties were established external (to Iran), following the Iranian program and structure with the aim of widening the implementation of Iranian penetration via the Shia present in various regions. In Bahrain Haadee al-Madrasee formed the Islamic Front for Liberation of Bahrain (al-Jabhah al-Islamiyyah li Tahrir al-Bahrain), through the backing of Tehran. At the beginning it set out its objectives as follows: a) Bringing down and abolishing the rule of Aal Khalifah, b) Establish the Shia organizational structure in concordance with the revolutionary political structure of al-Khomeini in Iran and c) Making the country independent of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and tying it instead to the Iranian Republic. This (Shia) Islamic Front would issue and distribute Iranian magazines such as al-Sha'ab al-Thaa'ir, and al-Thawrah wal-Risalah, and the person responsible for all information and notification matters was Eesaa Marhoon. At the end of 1979 the Shia of Bahrain through the planning of the (Shia) Islamic Front began to organize demonstrations, and these were co-ordinated with the demonstrations of the Shia in Saudi Arabia in al-Qateef. In the tensions that followed, the Rafidis killed one of the leaders of the Bahraini intelligence and as a result the government clamped down and imprisoned numerous members of the Front. This led to the Front ceasing these demonstrations but they continued to plot their attempts at revolution. They began to traffic weapons to Bahrain and in 1981, under the leadership of Muhammad Taqi al-Madrasi, they attempted a revolution against the government. However, it was foiled and the government arrested 73 individuals suspected of involvement or supporting the perpetrators. In the mid-80s, after meetings with Iranian intelligence, the (Shia) Islamic Front, it was agreed that a military wing should be established for the Front with the name Hizbollah - Bahrain. Muhammad Ali Mahfudh, the overall leader of the Islamic Front, was tasked with recruiting 3000 Bahraini Shia into Hizbollah Bahrain and to train them in Iran and Lebanon. The leader of this new party was Abd al-Ameer al-Jamaree, and he was succeeded by Alee Salmaan. Haadee al-Madrasee, the spokesman for the (Shia) Islamic Front was the overall director for this party, giving it tactical support, and Muhammad Taqi al-Madrasee gave logistical support to the party. With the new party in place, it embarked upon organized and arranged plans to stir up tribulations and revolutions in the country and to wrestle control of certain regions and important facilities.
The primary objective behind these activities for Hizbollah Bahrain was to implement a coup against the ruling authority and to install a structure in agreement with and allied to the Safawi Shia system in Iran [the Safawis turned Persia into a predominantly Twelver Shia region from 1500 to 1700CE - more on this in other articles]. These objectives were not hidden, Ayatollah Ruhani stated, "Bahrain follows Iran, and it is a part of the Iranian Islamic Republic" [in "al-Harakaat wal-Jamaa'aat al-Siyaasiyyah Fil-Bahrain" (p. 99-100)], and he means here the Shia population of Bahrain.
In 1994 Hizbollah Bahrain started off more demonstrations, revolts and subversive activities, and they employed different names and labels such as "Organization for Direct Action" and "Movement for Liberating Bahrain" and "Organization of the Stolen Bahrain", yet all of these were but Hizbollah Bahrain. They would also print and distribute monthly newsletters in London such as "Sawt al-Bahrain (the Voice of Bahrain)" in which their goals and agendas would be explained. They would also receive financial support from foreign agencies (or governments). Key names of this group "Movement for Liberating Bahrain" were Sa'id al-Hishaabee, Majid al-Alawi and Mansur al-Jamaree. In 1996 there were more terrible events, all organized and planned in Iran and implemented in Bahrain. Over a few weeks in March of that year, and over the next few months they commenced a series of activities including burning down shops, cars, and destroying large business and trade centres, and likewise a number of hotels and schools, and they also attacked electricity and telephone lines in the streets and exactly what crimes were committed by electricity and telephone lines against these Shia is not yet known. They also burned a branch of the Islamic Bank of Bahrain, and the National Bank of Bahrain. All of these activities were goaded on by the Iranian media outlets which were inviting to obstinacy and civil disobedience against the Bahraini state and nation because the request of the Shia were not being met and what they actually meant by "requests of the Shia" was to abolish the ruling authority and replace it with a Safawi Shia nation upon the model of Iran. The Kuwaiti newspaper, al-Anbaa al-Kuwaitiyyah announced in its 10th June 1996 edition that "Hizbollah al-Kuwaiti had been purchasing weapons which were left behind by the Iraqi army in Kuwait and were trafficking them to Hizbollah al-Bahraini" and the report also explained that these orders had come from Iran to Hizbollah Kuwait to traffick these weapons to Bahrain without ever being discovered. This was admitted by Ahmad Kaadhim al-Mitqawee, one of the leaders of Hizbollah al-Bahraini, and this was widely reported in the Bahraini and Arabia news and media outlets, he stated that in collaboration with Iranian intelligence, weapons were trafficked to Bahrain on sea. This was also acknowledged by Jaasim Hasan al-Khayaat, who also explained that the end-goal behind all of this was to implement a coup and replace the government militarily and to establish a Shia government loyal to Iran. Shia clerics such as Abbaas Alee Ahmad al-Hubail also agitated the people against state in sermons. Likewise, Abd al-Wahhaab Husayn, who played a major role in this party, he would give lessons instructing the party how to deal with the Bahraini security forces and how to organize social upheaval against the state.
These goals and plans have not ceased till this day, and there is collaboration and support from other proxies of Iran, such as Hizbollah Lebanon, for the Bahraini Hizbollah, and they continue to work socially, economically, politically and militarily against the Bahraini government with a view to replacing it with a Safawi Shia government loyal to and essentially run by the Rafidah of Iran.

On a wider level, these activities of the Rafidah of Iran should be seen as an attempt by Twelver Shia, whose ancient roots are Magian (fire-worshippers), to dominate the Sunni Arab Gulf states, to whom they have centuries old-resentment because Islam came (through the Arabs) and dominated their lands and made insignificant their civilization. Historically, these Magian fire-worshippers simply adopted Shi'ism as a front in order to work to destroy Islam against whom they had the greatest of resentment, and essentially what we are seeing today of all of these activities by the Safawi Shia state of Iran is but a manifestation of that. Shi'ism was spread in what used to be called Persia by the Safavids (originally Sufis) between 1500 - 1700CE, and they conquered that land which consisted of large numbers of Zoroastrians, who then became Shia, whilst retaining their previous heritage. We hope to elaborate upon these matters in other articles inshaa'Allaah.
