Navideshahed: Bahrain's top religious leader lashed out at the Al-Khalifa regime's brutal crackdown on protesters, and called on Manama to end suppression of the people to resolve ongoing crisis in the tiny Persian Gulf island.

"Realizing real political reforms are the solution to crisis that will eradicate oppression, discrimination and ignorance of the nation's will and view about the determination of its fate," Sheikh Isa Qassim said, addressing a group of Bahraini people in Daraz region.

"The ruling system's violence, double-crossing people's demand, deceitfulness, false media propaganda and political maneuvering will never be useful," the senior Shiite cleric stated.

Several Bahraini news websites reported last month that large groups of al-Khalifa forces attacked a large number of districts in the Bahraini cities and villages to suppress and arrest those who had attended the protest rallies against the ruling system.

They also sprayed toxic gases at residential districts and people's houses.

Earlier reports from the Arab country said that as protests continue in Bahrain, the police keep bombarding dissenters with tear gas, which local residents say is now getting both stronger and thicker. It's not only affecting just protesters, either - tear gas is getting into people's homes. For many, it's now becoming part of everyday life.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February 2011, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13, 2011, to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

So far, tens of protesters have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured.

Police clampdown on protesters continues daily. Authorities have tried to stop organized protests by opposition parties over the past month by refusing to license them and using tear gas on those who turn up.

The opposition coalition wants full powers for the elected parliament and a cabinet fully answerable to parliament.
