Bahraini opposition activist Ali Al-Fayez said in a September 4, 2020 interview on Al-Lualua TV (Bahraini Opposition) that Bahraini normalization with Israel would cause a violent popular and political reaction because it would constitute an imminent danger to Bahrain from an economic, political, religious, cultural, social, and moral perspective.
Ali Al-Fayez: "[Bahraini] normalization of relations [with Israel] would not pass peacefully. The reaction would be violent."
Interviewer: "You mean a reaction by the public?"
Al-Fayez: "By the public, the political forces, and everybody. This normalization would not pass just like that, because it constitutes an imminent danger to Bahrain in its entirety, and in all aspects – economically, politically, religiously, culturally, socially, morally, and you can add whatever you want. This is a real danger to Bahrain and Bahrainis on all levels."
