State Terrorism

What are you going to do next Hamad? The same as what your father did in the 90's? As they say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Bahraini Activist Sexually Abused

Moosa AbdAli has been sexually abused by security forces today. He is a member in the Unemployment committee which has planned a peaceful demonstration tomorrow the 29th of November.

Meet our "democratic" government everybody.... to stop a peaceful demonstration they abuse a 24 year old activist. But the demonstration tomorrow will be strong, and I hope that many people will go to demand their rights.

Day by day I am more convinced that no democracy is possible with this family in power. The Alkhalifas MUST be overthrown. Whether its Hamad, Khalifa or the "educated" Salman, they are all representatives of a regime that does not respect the rights of the Bahraini citizen.

Condemning the Bahraini Gov.

Exclusion condemned
Published: 10 November 2005

CIVIC organisations in the region are protesting an alleged decision by the Bahrain government to exclude a human rights activist from taking part in the Forum for the Future. They were attending workshop officially held by the forum's organisers in Doha, Qatar, which concluded on Tuesday.The condemnation was in its final communiqué, which will now be presented to the forum attended by foreign ministers from Broader Middle East and North Africa (BMENA) region and the Group of Eight (G8) industrial democracies.

The now-dissolved Bahrain Centre for Human Rights president Abdul Hadi Al Khawaja was nominated along with five other human rights activists to present its recommendations at the forum but was allegedly not allowed to do so. "Participants in the workshop denounce the objection of the Bahrain government on one of the leading defenders of human rights in the Arab region from taking part in Forum for the Future," they said in the communiqué."We are surprised with the action of the Bahrain government on this attack on human rights and the right of the civic organisation to choose who they want to represent them.

Forward msg

Last month, a world-wide survey was conducted by the UN.
The only question asked was... : "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a huge failure because...:
In Africa they didn't know what " food " means.
In Eastern Europe they didn't know what " honest " means.
In Western Europe they didn't know what " shortage " means.
In China they didn't know what " opinion " means.
In the Middle East they didn't know what " solution" means.
In South America they didn't know what " please " means.
In the USA they didn't know what " the rest of the world " means.
