Only in Bahrain have we heard of a corpse help in captivity for more than 6 days to harm Martyr AlJazeeri's family emotionally
What's happening in Bahrain have revealed the sectarian nature of Bedouins. They accept crimes if the person who committed them is Sunni
They are hypocrites: they claim being religious while they swear & attack their counterparts in their twitter accounts Bahrain
In the stories of prophets, hypocrites fought against justice & peoples' rights. They even tortured people. Bahrain
Values wiped off slaves dictionary: justice, equality, & fighting corruption. Loyalists' logic: blame everything on Iran.

Believe it or not: the regime imports ignorant mercenaries from all around the world to cover the shortage caused that rather than giving a chance to those who are unemployed.
Believe it or not: in the country where its young people suffer from poverty and unemployment, naturalization was used extensively to change its demographics. The regime has naturalized around 50 to 60.000 for political reasons.
Believe it or not: in the Supreme Defense Council members of the ruling family occupy 13 seats out of 14. In the Ministry of Interior Shiites make up 10% of the positions whereas the ruling family occupies 35% and Sunnis occupy the remaining posts.
These are only pieces of the brutal reality and let me conclude: this small island had more revolutions since 1923 than any other country - not because of its sectarian combination - but because we are facing a regime which strives on repression, discrimination and corruption.
Do not let the Bahraini regime justify its crimes using the sectarian strife that it has created. And do not allow the international community to justify its failure due to divisions created by the regime.
Bahrain's problem is not in people demanding equality and justice.
But rather in a system that detests equality and justice.

In the year 2004 I was volunteering in a human rights committee to monitor violations and help victims of torture, when a young graceful man entered. He was about my age, and would only speak to the committee of veteran human rights activists upon my departure. I left the committee with a heavy sense of humiliation, but after only a few minutes the same man came hastily out after wetting his pants. I looked away to avoid embarrassing him, but our eyes met for a glimpse, I still to this day remember the look in his eyes; a combination of oppression, pain, anger, shame and despair.
