National Day



Yes today is our National Day, today we celebrate the sacrifices our people have made for our country. Afterall what is a national day?? Is it the day we celebrate "aljolous", is it the day we celebrate that the British occupiers decided to give our country to the Bedoiun tribe that were the other occupiers.

History is important, you don't just try to forget it and hope for the best. Instead we should all know our history well and learn from it. The Alkhalifas are a tribe that was in a war with the Bahraini people and defeated us and then occupied the country. This is not something I want to celebrate. We are not independent but someday we will get our independence. Until we do however, our national day will be to thank those who lost their lives for Bahrain.

I will never celebrate the fact that a dictator sat on his throne as the day of our independence.
Instead I will salute our Bahraini martyrs.
