More than 400 Bahraini judicial activists have warned against any normalization of relations with Israel, expressing their support for the Palestinian cause.
The activists blasted Bahraini officials for hosting an Israeli celebration last week, Bahrain’s LuaLua TV reported on Wednesday.
They also called on the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry to punish its members, who took part in the Hanukkah ceremony, and to make them apologize for their participation in the event.
The judicial activists further voiced solidarity with the Palestinian cause and underlined the need for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.
The ceremony, which was held on Saturday, was also reportedly attended by members of the country’s small Jewish population, foreign businessmen and local Bahrainis.
