Bahraini Youth Scrub Site Visited by Jews

A video posted on the YouTube channel of the Bahraini chapter of the "Youth for Jerusalem" association – s4quds - on December 31 depicts Bahraini youth scouring a pavement in Manama where a Hanukah celebration was recently held. The video shows the youth sweeping and scrubbing the pavement, with various dates, representing landmarks in Bahraini support for the Palestinian cause, painted on their backs. At the candle-lighting celebration, a Jewish delegation presented a large silver menorah to Arab dignitaries, and members of both groups danced together. Celebration of the Jewish holiday was first sanctioned by the Bahraini monarch Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa in 2015.

“In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate We, the Bahrainis, will redeem Palestine and the Arabs, and even all Muslims”


“1948 Bahrainis participated in mass demonstrations and waged Jihad with their money and souls against the Partition Plan and the occupation of Palestine”


A cleaner’s coat reads “2002”


“2002 The establishment of the Permanent Parliamentary Committee for Supporting the Palestinian People in addition to the ongoing governmental support”


Voice over: "... Defending its just causes, first and foremost the Palestinian cause."


A cleaner’s coat reads “2009”


“2009 Mass Protests against the tyrannical Zionist aggression against Gaza

Voice over: “As we told our brothers in Gaza, we will support them as much as we can. We will wipe away this stain on the shining history of our lands. We, the youth of Bahrain, will not forget our cause, and we will keep marching on this path until Palestine is regained - in its entirety!”
