On Friday, Bahrain TV broadcast a new leaked telephone call recording that was made on March 2011 between Advisor to the Qatari Amir, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Attiya, and fugitive terrorist, Hassan Sultan.
The telephone conversation showed how they were conspiring to spread chaos across Bahrain and cover it on the Doha-based Al-Jazeera satellite channel.
Terrorist Hassan Sultan is a senior religious leader in the Dawa Party, who played a key role to incite violence in the mid-1990s. He was a member of parliament and fled to Lebanon in 2011 for fear of being arrested.
Fugitive terrorist Hassan Sultan is being hosted in Lebanon by terrorist organisation, Hezbollah, and frequently visits Iraq to transfer money from Hezbollah to fugitive and wanted Bahrainis there.
He is a member of the dissolved Al Wefaq Islamic Society, whose members always take part in interviews broadcast by Al-Jazeera channel. The same channel also covers their news, which proves that it is not an independent channel, but implementing policies of the Qatari government.
"Bahrain released the recording as part of the disclosure of Qatari interference in the domestic affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain, which was intended to overthrow the regime," the official Bahraini News Agency said.
The channel showed four telephone conversations made in March 2011 between Al Attiyah and Sultan.
In the telephone call, Attiyah explained to Sultan why the Qatari forces are not participating in the island's GCC joint shield forces, and showed him that his country will not partake this time, saying that there are only two Qatari watchdog officers participating.
The Bahraini dissident Hassan Ali Jumma Sultan described the Island Shield forces as being 'Occupation Forces', and called on Qatar to refrain from taking part in such forces.
Al Attiyah said that Qatar is reserved that's why it (Qatar) refused to dispatch its forces to join the GCC joint forces which is called the Island Shield, referring to the Arabian peninsula.
