Bahraini cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim said in his sermon during the Friday congregational prayers in the town of Diraz that “America's duplicitous positions regarding the Arab revolutions

reflect the country's materialistic approach,” the Al-Alam news channel reported on its website.
The Bahraini cleric made reference to the 'increasing' number of detentions in the tiny Persian Gulf island nation and pointed out that a similar fate to that of Libya's slain dictator Muammar Gaddafi awaits those who continue to trample on the rights of the people in Bahrain.
Since mid-February, thousands of anti-government protesters have been staging regular demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling on the US-backed Al Khalifa family to relinquish power.
On March 14, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates invaded the country to assist Bahraini rulers in their brutal crackdown on peaceful anti-government protesters.
According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested in the regime crackdown in Bahrain.
