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:

The opposition statement said it considered the arrival of any soldier or military vehicle “an overt occupation of the kingdom of Bahrain and a conspiracy against the unarmed people of Bahrain.”

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