US, UK taking Bahrain into 'fascism' http://www.presstv.ir/detail/177208.html
The US, the UK and Israel are behind the death sentence handed to four anti-government protesters in Bahrain, a political expert says. A Bahraini military court has sentenced four protestors to death over the killing of two policemen during the country's recent anti-government protests. In an interview with press TV, Chairman of the Committee against Torture in Bahrain Rodney Shakespeare described the court as “a kangaroo trial killing,” saying the four were sentenced to death only for displaying “a little bit of democracy” in Bahrain's recent uprising.
The US and its allies are “behind these outrageous acts of what is going to be slaughter of four incent men,” he said. Shakespeare further expressed his outrage over the Bahraini government's “razing of mosques, the burning of Qur'ans, and now the killing of people.” The US is implementing the Zionist policy which is paving way for “fascism” into this world, he said. “The USA and Israel has always backed totalitarian corrupt regimes.”
Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's 40-year rule. On March 13, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates deployed police and military forces in the kingdom upon Manama's request to quell the nationwide protests. According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested so far during the government clampdown on the peaceful demonstrations.
