Bahrain’s Most Dangerous Men,When the Opposition gets Rewarded

Written by Hassan Al-Shiakhi

Translation by Latifa

It seems that Bahrain’s crisis did not only reveal the scandals by the country’s opposition and their despicable plans; but it also revealed many hidden things to us. An example of this would include the mismanagement of the state by government “officials” who stayed holding on to their positions for a very long time.

The result of the countless tries by the government to get closer to and establish a rapport with the deviant group by providing every facility and position, came to a disturbing halt despite the gestures ranging from senior positions to ministerial posts.

Others were offered huge sums of money, which they accepted, land, grants and gifts, in a desperate attempt to engage the loyalty of those, which following the recent crisis has shown that their loyalty was, and still is to Velayat –al-faqih.

The trust and the millions spent on them went down the drain after draining the small Kingdom’s budget which could have been used for its citizens to cover their housing needs or in creating more jobs, which could have ultimately helped in providing a good standard of living for all Bahrainis.

There are many documents which prove the millions of dinars (1 dinar is equivalent of $2.65) spent on the country’s opposition to establish a rapport, but with no avail.

Instead of rewarding the nation and providing Loyalty to the country and its citizens, they deceived the country, took advantage of the unbelievable amounts granted to them and in the meantime kept this hidden from their own followers.

The huge amounts of money they received were kept well hidden for their own people and the general public and was used to buy luxurious homes, cars, and holidays; while the country’s budget weakened. Besides the amounts they were granted, they embezzled Government funds, provided jobs only to their sect and trampled the remaining citizen’s appeals and requests for the basic rights.

Many loyal citizens who have indigestible loans eating away most of their income did not benefit a single dinar from the money provided.

Before reading the next section, I strongly suggest the reader doses on valium pills:

Salman al Mahfoodh:

Salman got a huge plot of land for free, it doesn’t stop at there – he also received 1 million dinars on top, yes, I repeat one million dinars ($2.6million).

Here he is today, the ex-opposition and the co-founder of Hezbollah Bahrain and is under the US government’s wing pulling up cases against Bahrain. He works day and night to bring back all those who were terminated from work because of their stupidity and their blind loyalty to Iran. (He mentions that 1000 were expelled from work).

 

Ali Salman (left) with Hezbolla's Nasralla

Ali Salman:

Chairman: Al Wefaq Islamic Political bloc.  A deputy Shiite cleric of the Supreme leader in Bahrain; Isa Qassim.

One would wonder why his bloc calls for democracy, for in a democratic system, religion and politics do not mix, and his bloc will lose all its political power.

He is one of those who were arrested in the ‘90’s and one of the master minds of the recent plot. He was provided with land in Busaiteen which was sold for BD2.5million ($6.6million). The massive amount was credited to his personal account, while his followers pay him to help them get promised benefits like salary raises and free housing.

 

Mansour Al Jamri:

One of the leaders of the Shiite rebel group in the ‘90s (and to mention one of the pardoned ones as well). He is the main planner and heads the media campaign against the King. He used the newspaper, Al Wasat, by being its Editor-in-Chief. He fabricated false news to distort Bahrain’s reputation.

Dr. Mansour received BD 2.5million ($6.6million) in cash, along with a massive plot of land in Saar… for free of course.

More on Mansour Al Jamri here

Majeed Al Alawi:

One of the founders of Hezbollah in Bahrain.

With Majeed, it doesn’t stop there, he is also one of the master planners to topple the monarchy in the ‘90s.

He held an essential role as the Minister of Labour. Many assumed that the government succeeded in ‘buying’ his loyalty. But we have seen how he used the government to reach the highest positions, then used his position (power) to conspire against Bahrain. He was given more than BD6million ($16million) in form of gifts and grants (during the period he was minister). In addition to his big salary, he was granted (for free – goes without saying) numerous big plots of land in prestigious cities – A’ali, Saar and Seef. He was lately involved in an embezzlement scandal where he accused of receiving BD24,000 ($63,600) from the LMRA – which only shows how corrupt his administration was.

More on Majeed Al Alawi here.

 

Isa Qassim:

The “Murshid” of the so called “Republic”, the main point of contact between Bahrain and Iran. The one ranked as the ‘Vale’ signifying Velayat-al-Faqih in Bahrain. The start of his trail of scandals started when the amounts in ONE of his bank accounts accumulated up to more than BD2.5million (6.6million) which was leaked. His wealth is currently valued at BD37million ($98million) in addition to lands and properties he owns in and out of Bahrain.

More about Isa Qassim here .

 

Ali Al-Oraibi:

First lieutenant in the oppositions Hezbollah cell in Bahrain and another lead plotter of the ‘90’s attempted coup.

He was going to be an “Ayatollah” if Bahrain’s government hadn’t “interfered” by bringing him back from Qom.

A lump-sum of BD3million ($8million) was given to hush him up. He works now as a judge in the Ja’fari (Shiite) courts. He is one of the hidden dangerous masterminds who refuse to come out in public, an advantage used to move more stealthily.

 

Nizar Al Baharna:

One of the most treacherous men in the opposition, who had a hand in Bahrain’s recent turmoil.

A figure that was highly trusted by the Monarchy, who while Bahrain was at a peak embedded in a crisis, travelled around the world to breach the trust bestowed upon him.

Certain sources say that he was the long awaited President of the new “Republic” where during his trip to the US (which he claimed was with his sick father) was to pave the way for his upcoming position.

He took advantage of his position as the country’s minister for foreign affairs to establish strong relations with powerful countries. He comes from a very wealthy family, there is no hard coded numbers totaling all amounts ‘given’ to him, but they are in millions. Lands were granted by the country to this him, in addition to a number of villas in the luxurious Amwaj Islands.

He has family connections with the Ex-Minister Abdulmajeed Al Alawi and the current minister Abdul Hussain Mirza. Weekly meetings have been held by all three to plan the toppling of Bahrain’s government.

 

 

Abdul Nabi Al Shoala:

Ex-minister of Labour: total gifts reached BD5million ($13.3million).

 

 

 

 

 

Mansour Bin Rajab

The man, who places his cards on every table was involved in a scandal, when he was accused of money laundering for the Iranian revolutionary guard. He was also accused of embezzling public funds. He has had many ministerial posts, including heading the municipalities which was brought to its worst conditions due to his corrupt management and administration.

He also threw out his son’s wife after his death (Son died a year ago) and disowned his own grandchild. His list does not stop there; he was also prosecuted for public fee aversion which reached 10,s of thousands of dinars of which he owed the government. His total grants reached BD37million ($100million). His social network includes socialites, elites and MPs like Adel Assoumi who still defends him vigorously.

More about Bin Rajab’s scandals here.

 

Al-Halwachi (AlShaer):

He is well known for reciting one of the most memorable poems complimenting the King and the government. He was given a land in Saar city which was sold and cashed for BD13million ($34.5milion).

 

Dr.  Saeed Al Shehabi:

Leading opposition figure in London. The government offered him millions to take on a ministerial role, but he refused and left to UK after (fighting) with Isa Qassim.

Following the recent unrest in Bahrain and his heavy involvement, he is currently backed financially by Iran.

Read more about Al Shehabi’s scandals in UK MP in UK press here.

Another article written by Elliott Abrams, a Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies – Council in Foreign Relations – can be found here

 

Hassan Mushaima:

The man who spoke ‘too quickly’ about forming an Islamic Republic in Bahrain.

A radical extremist, who believes in raging a war on the Sunni sect, no numbers available on the amounts provided to him by the government, however, he was moved ahead of many sick nationals who needed medical treatment abroad. Millions were paid for his cancer treatment abroad by the Bahraini government.

More information about Hassan Mushaima here . & http://hassanmushaima.blogspot.com/

 

 

 

Faisal Jawad:

A multi-billionaire of whose wealth was accumulated by the government’s support which helped him earn billions over the years. His position in society grew only to back stab it. One of the companies which partnered with his group of companies is the Defense Cooperation for Foodstuff (belongs to Bahrain’s Defense Force).

Witnesses and protesters admit that some received 40 dinars (approx US$120) daily to remain in “lulu”

Jawad Group Holdings can be found here : http://www.jawad.com/

 

Hassan Al-A’ali(deceased)  & Sons:

The government engaged his group of companies with multi-million dinar contracts. In 1994, his cash account reached a staggering BD42million ($111.5million) which does not include his properties, stocks, etc. (He built 400 houses for Shiites in Saar, A’ali & Sadad. When he was asked why he didn’t build houses for Sunnis, he said there are fatwas that oppose this, and he wouldn’t want to lose his footing in society. His family & sons paid 1million ($2.7million) to support the “lulu” revolution.

http://www.hajihassan.com/

The millions of dinars mentioned above are only some of the amounts that have been provided to those of who on the 14th of February 2011 showed their true identity. Other information was very difficult to trace, however, there are few points which need to be raised:

  1. The lands given to those were in modern locations and wanted by all, like Saar, A’ali and Busaiteen.
  2. The total amounts of (cash) grants given to all those who are listed above reach more than BD50million ($132.6million), given to a mere 9 people. One must wonder what the total amounts of the grants we have yet to discover. We expect the amount to reach over 100million ($270million) in cash and more than that in the form of properties and lands. However, most of the financial support was given in the form of contracts and business arrangements.
  3. Unfortunately, most of the above mentioned have not been caught, quite the contrary – they are in Bahrain and enjoying their wealth! No grants have been recalled.

I would like to ask Al Wefaq this question: why did you not talk about these grants and gifts which were given to your colleagues?

Al Wasat Newspaper: Mansour Al Jamri, why did you NOT write about this?

Why didn’t Lamees Dhaif write and comment on the riches of the ultra-wealthy opposition figures? She commented on the Monarchy.

Ebrahim Shariff, Why didn’t you talk about this corruption when you spoke about lands being distributed to some families?

Why did you take this money Al Wefaq & Wa’ad when you say you are fighting against corruption?

Why did you Hassan Mushaima agree on taking the free treatment from a government which you do not legitimize?

What is more surprising is that your followers are following you blindly, maybe they do not know how wealthy you are in Bahrain and out – Iran, Lebanon, Uk, Switzerland and more.

    What is most disturbing is that the loyal citizens are finding out this information and are feeling outraged; the frustrations they feel is in trying to struggle through life to pay up their debts, to give their families a good life, and to provide some luxuries while these anti-government disloyal ingrates get land, cash, and positions.

    This frustration will eventually cause them to become an opposition force that is also against government, not because they support the sectarian opposition, but because after repeated history, it seems that only the disloyal get rewarded. The question that goes through thier mind is: “I am loyal, I love King Hamad, I love my country, I will never pick up arms or call for a coupe; what do I get for that? Nothing. What did those who went up against the government get? Power, positions, money, land, etc… Hmmmmmmm..”.

    It would seem that loyalty is rewardeless indeed. Is that what the sectarian opposition intended? Is this what they had hoped to achieve when at first they said we represent not only one sect but all? Were they counting on letting all know that loyalty is worthless, that it is better to be opposition? That could have worked if it wasn’t for the fact that they called for an Islamic Republic which many reject because the only example is Iran and it is a failure on so many levels; so they could not get the support of the pro-government in Bahrain despite them being disgruntled because they failed to offer an acceptable alternative for them.

    Is loyalty bought and sold? I think not, loyalty is a quality that is either in you, or not. If you are loyal to King Hamad and the Kingdom of Bahrain that is not because of what you were rewarded, it is a patriotic sentiment your national pride. Loyalty is not a result of how money was paid; but when the disloyal are paid such huge sums, the loyal begin to be tempted; after all we are all humans, and temptation is strong, especially for the needy. I could do with a few thousands in my account, let alone millions, what should i do?

    I could chose to work hard for a living and earn through my struggle and toil, or i could play these dirty politics as a hustler.
