Bahrain Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al KhalifaBahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, urged on his Twitter account the assassination of Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, calling it "a national and religious duty."

According to the Tweet inconsistent with all international norms, Al-Khalifa's minister said that Sayyed Nasrallah "is terrorist and declares war on his nation," the official Bahrain News Agency reported.

The minister's statements followed Sayyed Nasrallah's latest speech in which he touched on several topics, mainly the situation in Syria and Bahrain.

During his appearance on Al-Manar TV last Monday, his eminence praised the Bahraini peaceful revolution and the injustice it suffers, while the monarchy's government receives open support and has the potential to blackout the revolution and tarnish its image before the international public opinion.

Observers believe that the Bahraini authorities should settle its internal problems and meet the demands of the protesters, rather than marketing problems and accusations to others, especially Hezbollah, the Lebanese party of Resistance which constitute the spearhead in facing the Zionist occupation.
