Bahraini Protesters Cheapen Language of “Occupation”

Saudi military forces entered Bahrain. Anti-government protesters call it “occupation.” A NY Times dispatch (incidentally by Jerusalem bureau chief, Ethan Bronner) notes:

If they’re not careful, Bahrainis will cheapen the “Israeli occupation” brand most recently purveyed by Reuters.
