Turkish Prime Minister warns against Saudi intervention in Bahrain

Ankara, March 16 – Turkey's Prime Minister Rajab Tayyeb Erdoghan, today warned Bahrain about Saudi Arabia’s military intervention during a meeting with parliamentary members of the ruling party.

He clearly stated that fighting between Muslims has always been instigated by outside forces and have always benefited outside forces, according to news reports from Ankara.

The Turkish Premier recalled the tragedy of Karbala on the undue and provocative meddling by Saudi Arabian forces in Bahrain. He warned Bahrain about what will happen next.

Erdoghan was referring to the tragic martyrdom of Prophet Mohammad's (SAWA) grandson, Imam Husain (AS) in 61 AH, when forces of the tyrannical Omayyad caliph, Yazid, despite pretensions to be Muslims, martyred Prophet Mohammad's (SAWA) grandson and other members of the blessed family.

Erdoghan criticizing Saudi Arabia for sending troops to Bahrain, said: “Our stance is clear. We do not support oil wells; we support people, we support nations, we support democracy, we support peace, we support brotherhood. We scream out loud that a brother should not kill his brother.”
