Of course, the Bahrainis were merely enjoying the sights and sounds of Jerusalem, a crime to the likes of Quds News Network and other Israel-haters and opponents of peace.
No doubt our visitors were able to perceive the truth about life here, despite the propaganda efforts of QNN et al. As the visiting Zayed R. Alzayani, Bahrain’s minister for industry, commerce and tourism, said:
“Last night I personally went out to walk around the city, on my own, with a couple of friends. I kind of snuck out because I wanted to go and see and feel for myself, as a normal citizen, not as a government official. And I spent an hour walking in the Old City and I went to the shopping mall across the road. I didn’t feel threatened, I didn’t feel any security issues.”
“To my surprise, most of them were Arabs. One person asked me where I was from. I said Bahrain, he was very welcoming. He said, ahalan wasahlan, good to see you here, and that was it.”
