Regime forces in Bahraini have handed a warrant to prominent cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim to appear in court, after clashing with supporters around his house. Bahraini police forces used tear gas against Sheikh Qassim\u2019s supporters around his residence in the western Diraz region of the country in a brutal effort to gain access to the doorway of the house on Wednesday. The supporters of the cleric, who have been camping out at the area as a protective measure for his safety, called on more people from the local population to join them following the police raid. The sit-in protest outside of the cleric\u2019s home entered its 185th day on Wednesday. Soon, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates \u2014 themselves repressive Arab dictatorships \u2014 deployed forces to Bahrain to assist the Manama regime\u2019s crackdown on the peaceful protests. Human rights groups have frequently censured the Al Khalifah regime for rampant human rights abuses against the opposition and anti-regime demonstrators. The regime has imprisoned other senior clerics in the past. Sheikh Ali Salman, one such figure, has been sentenced to nine years in jail in a sham trial, Press TV reported.
