'Bahrain govt. lacks legitimacy'

A political analyst believes that the reason that the Bahraini government has brought in Saudi troops is that it feels “weak” and has “lost its legitimacy.”

Dr. Ali al-Faraj, a London-based political analyst, told Press TV on Saturday that the massive turnout in anti-government protests in Bahrain has left the Al Khalifa monarchy threatened.

He went on to say that the only way for the government to solve the political unrest in the country is to heed to the demands of the Bahraini people.

Faraj said that the Bahraini people live in fear that their houses could be raided at any time, as now the movement involves the majority of people in Bahrain.

Early on Saturday morning, prominent human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja was attacked at his home and beaten unconscious by up to 20 security forces. His family says they do not know where he has been taken or what he is accused of.

The number of Bahrainis detained since the start of anti-government protests on February 14 has toppled 500. Dozens of protesters have been killed and many others have gone missing.

Faraj also said that the US supports dictators in the Middle East, particularly Bahrain, which is home to the US Navy's Fifth Fleet.
