Iran has called on its people to stage rallies after this week's Friday prayers to protest against what it described as a US plan to annex Bahrain to Saudi Arabia.

The Islamic Propagation Coordination Council, which organises state-backed protests, urged Iranians "to protest against the American plan to annex Bahrain to Saudi Arabia and express their anger against the lackey regimes of Al-Khalifa and Al-Saud."

The leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council discussed on Monday plans to turn the bloc into a union, starting with Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

a GCC Arab plan is non of Iran's Business
funny article about funny Iranians. What on earth does Iran (non Arabs) have to do with (Arabs) Bahrain and Saudi? Who are they to protest? It is NON OF THEIR BUSINESS frankly speaking. They are talking on behalf of Islam? Give me a break. If they really want to fight for Muslims, they should go to Israel and help the Muslims there. Sheesh! Dumb Iranians. They took over UAE Islands in 1971 and now they want to take over Bahrain? History repeats itself. Iraq tried to do that to Kuwait in 1990-1991, but they failed; thanks to the US. I pray for the same to happen in this story.
