The political statements of Isa Ahmad Qasim and Abdul Wahhab Hussein - two thinkers and political activists known in Bahrain as “Sheikh Isa Qasim” and “Master Abdul Wahab Hussein” respectively - have had a significant impact on contemporary popular movements in Bahrain. These two characters are, in turn, both reformist and revolutionary discourses. Their attitude to the popular movements in Bahrain led to different approaches in achieving their goals and, ultimately, to the split in the popular body of the February 14, 2011 movement. The reason for this discrepancy is also due to the difference in their viewpoints towards the desirable government that derives from their thinking. This study, by means of comparative comparisons and library data collection, seeks to compare government theory from the perspective of the most important common concepts of their political viewpoints towards the Skinner’s hermeneutical method. The findings indicate that recent developments in Bahrain and the severity of the repression of the people and movements by the regime have had a significant impact on changing Ayatollah Qassim’s political tone and attitude and have led him to present a moderate conception of his political thought that ultimately the constitutional monarchy is considered the most favorable for Bahrain. While the repressions of the Bahraini regime not only tempered Abdul Wahhab Hussein’s action, it also led him to present a revolutionary model of his political attitude, as before, with the aim of overthrowing the system with the aim of forming a democratic Islamic State Ruler. In fact, Professor Abdul Wahhab Hussein opposed Sheikh Isa Qassim’s idea of forming a constitutional kingdom in Bahrain, calling the ideal Islamic government democratic. These two different literatures in the February 14th movement eventually split the people and divided them into reformers and advocates for revolution. This led to the prolongation of the February 14 movement and its suppression by the Bahraini regime.
