Iran Warns Bahrain Over Top Shi'ite Cleric (Radio Liberty, June 20, 2016)

A senior Iranian military figure has warned Bahrain's government of armed struggle after the Sunni-ruled kingdom's most prominent Shi'ite cleric was stripped of his citizenship.

In a June 20 statement, Bahrain's Interior Ministry accused Ayatollah Isa Qassem of using his position to "serve foreign interests" -- an apparent reference to Shi'ite Iran -- and promote "sectarianism and violence."

The cleric has backed protests led by Bahrain's Shi'ite majority for greater civil and political rights.

The majority gets to rule.
