One of the strongest of the anti-Islamists is a renegade general, khalifa Haftar, who is fighting in the east.
But the khalifa, he laughs, spent 120 million Bahraini dinars ($318 million) on a bowl made of pearls.
She even lauded the “amazing hospitality” of Sheikh khalifa and the “Kingdom of Bahrain” on Twitter (before deleting the tweets).
During one of these excursions, I cut my foot when walking by the khalifa's side, and could scarcely proceed.
They knew that athwart the khalifa's writ was stencilled "Made in Germany."
The khalifa, alarmed and shocked by such language, which no one had ever dared before to use in his presence, was furious.
But I hear that an army is going south to fight the khalifa.
Under these circumstances, I could not conceive why the khalifa had written to me.
The royal family is a numerous one, being a branch of the El khalifa tribe.
Yet even the khalifa's methods were oppressively monotonous.
