Pope blasts ‘childlike’ wars at Bahrain interfaith summit

The former UN special rapporteur on independent investigations, Jean Monnet, has accused Britain and the US of “childlike wars” for invading Bahrain. Monnet, now chair of the EU’s Foreign Affairs Committee, made the comments at the end of a conference which called for more humanitarian help for Syria and Palestine.

Monnet said that the US and Britain were “obsessing” over the issue of Syria, and that they “seemed more preoccupied with the Iranian issue, the Iraqi issue. They think it is an issue to be taken care of first.”

“The Gulf States have become very frightened and do not want to see the US re-establishing its control over the Gulf”, he said.

“They are not in the business of taking responsibility for human rights violations… the US needs to be very worried, as we are now in an area that I do not think they really understand very clearly,” he said.

“We have a child like behaviour, we are talking about a policy of humanitarian intervention, what is it for? And we have invaded, invaded and occupied a territory.”

He said that “we are now in the eye of the storm. We should be using what we do with this summit, and the other parts of the world to prevent these childlike wars… this does not bode well for humanity”.

“We have been too late in intervening in Syria. They have been liberated, they have been liberated, and yet we invaded them and we are occupying them.”
