The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education in Bahrain, Mohammed Mubarak, said during a hypothetical meeting sponsored by the Israeli President, "What unites us with Israel is more than what divides us," which angered Bahraini singers.
Mubarak demanded, in videos posted by Bahraini activist Yousef Al-Jamri, on Twitter, to put censorship on social media in order to build bridges with Israel.
On September 15, the UAE and Bahrain signed two normalization agreements with Israel at the White House under the auspices of US President Donald Trump, ignoring the state of anger in Arab popular circles.
Yesterday, the Bahrain News Agency reported that an official Israeli delegation held talks with Bahraini officials in Manama, including areas of cooperation within the framework of the declaration of normalization between the two sides.

Activists commented on the statements of the Undersecretary of the Bahraini Ministry of Education, stressing that the Bahraini people reject normalization, and that Mubarak only represents himself and expressed their anger at his statements.
One of the tweets said, "He hints that he who opposes normalization in the pocket will (be) at the door of his house," referring to the arrests and gagging.
Another activist added, "This is his speech always as if it is directed at the security authorities, in hate speech more than this speech at all? Any dissenting voice is affiliated with groups and without without without without."
Speak singular, say what brings you together, talk only about yourself, what right do others have with you !?

One of the activists asked Mubarak to speak in the singular, and said: "Say what unites you, talk about yourself only, on what right do others gather with you ?! I do not recognize the Zionist entity, and I will not."
A number of Arab media professionals and journalists participated, last Monday evening, in an electronic normalization seminar, to discuss the role of journalists in improving relations between Arab countries and the Israeli occupation.
The symposium, entitled "The Role of the Media in Promoting Peace in the Region", was organized by the so-called "Arab Council for Regional Integration", journalists from Bahrain, the Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Egypt and Algeria, as well as Israeli personalities.
