(salam)

i have stated before that the Bahraini people and the bahraini shia in particular should not waste their time and blood in peaceful protests.the shia in bahrain have tried this before and failed.the oppressive regime doesnt see itself as being oppressive neither does it view the shia as its subjects and citizens.the sad part is that the majority in bahrain is shia and the oppressive monarchy is sunni.the majority of the minority sunnis support the regime.it is sad that while we see other sunnis rising against their sunni rulers in the middle east,the sunni of bahrain will keep quiet because their ruler is sunni and oppressive towards the majority shia.

the shia should not waste their time and blood in peaceful protests.too many bahraini shia youths have being wasted invain.the shia community in bahrain should "WISE-UP".they should get the best and strongest and bravest and most couragous of their youths and send them somewhere to get military training.how big is the bahraini army?a few thousands that look like sickle cell patients?the bahraini shia should train their youths militarily and prepare them for a bloody coup against the monarchy.train your youths and then get them good enough weapons to assault the monarch's palace and force him to flee.

i only see force as the means to get rid of the monarchy in bahrain.talks about making the monarchy a constitutional or limited monachy is avoiding the problem and the solution.only by getting rid of the monarchy will the bahranis be free and get their due rights.

The New York Time's Nick Kristof has a column giving an overview of reporting from the ground in Bahrain. He writes:

King Hamad initially pulled the police back, but early on Thursday morning he sent in the riot police, who went in with guns blazing. Bahrain television has claimed that the protesters were armed with swords and threatening security – that’s preposterous. I was on the roundabout earlier that night and saw many thousands of people, including large numbers of women and children, even babies. Many were asleep.

I was not at the roundabout at the time of the attack, but afterward at the main hospital (one of at least three to receive casualties) I saw the effects. More than 600 people were treated with injuries, overwhelmingly men but including small numbers of women and children.

FT Editorial

Furthermore, there is not a shred of evidence to suggest Iran is behind the unrest. Tehran turns up its loudspeakers when Bahrainis take to the streets. But this situation is domestic. It should also be solvable – even now.

A fairer share of the national pie and government for the Shia, and a beefed-up parliament able to dismiss prime minister and cabinet, would secure the rule of the al-Khalifas, until now not under real challenge. To do that, the ruling family and its patrons in Saudi Arabia will need to overcome their contempt for the Shia, which long predates their paranoia about Iran.

Bismillaah ir Rahmaan ir Rahiim In The Name of Allah, The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful. As salaamu 'alaikum, The peace be upon you.

You should also consider who is giving the orders to attack the protesters in Bahrain. America could care less, how many shias are injured or, killed in Bahrain.

'Bahrain government is a US base'

Wed Feb 16, 2011 5:51PM

Interview with Richard Becker from ANSWER coalition

Thousands of Bahrainis have taken to the streets in a third day of pro-democracy protests, inspired by revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt.

The following is the transcript of Press TV's interview with Richard Becker from ANSWER coalition about the developments in Bahrain:

Press TV: We would like to get your insight into this spreading uprising throughout the Arab regimes. It started in Tunisia; it went to Egypt and now it seems that Bahrain is rising up as well. Do you think that Bahrain will go the way of Tunisia and Egypt? Some experts say each country is different, so we cannot generalize necessarily about all the Arab regimes.

Becker: I think we have to ask one question. Why do they have these kings and Emirs in the 21st century and why are those kings and Emirs, particularly in the [Persian] Gulf region, supported by a country, which proclaims itself to be the beacon of democracy in the world? I am speaking about the United States.

The answer to that question has a great deal to do with the fact that these kings and Emirs have served them as junior partners. They have gone very very rich predatory family monarchies. They have gone very very rich, unimaginably rich, but they are still the junior partners of the US banks and oil companies and military industrial complex and of course the question of Bahrain in relation to the US is especially acute …

So, we do not know what the United States will really do in order to defend its base there and in order to defend its rights, which we consider an unjustified and illegitimate right to be based in Bahrain. But that certainly is one of the big differences. The similarities are very clear and the fact that the people in Bahrain, who are in the streets have renamed the Pearl Square to Tahrir (Liberation) Square is indicative of the commonality of the protest against these many corrupt regimes throughout the region, which have been supported for many many years and decades by the United States.

Press TV: The king himself came on TV; the interior minister also apologized, as the king had, for the few deaths that did occur and the head of Bahrain's trade council also returned from Minnesota from a conference that he was told he was not allowed to speak, because actually the organizer had told him they were not comfortable with him speaking there. Are these measures significant in any way to show that the Al-Khalifa family realizes what is actually happening? Does it get it?

Becker: They have not been apologizing for the long string of people, who have been arrested, brutalized and viciously tortured over the years. Why haven't they apologized for those things that happened in the past and for the people who have been killed in Bahrain; those who were the political opponents?

They didn't because they did not see they had to. They did not see that there was a force that threatened their rule. Just as we saw [former Egyptian President] Hosni Mubarak made confession after confession but had to leave office. But this was only because of the power of the people and that is what I believe is the cause of the statements that are coming from the high officials in Bahrain right now.

Bahrain's anti-government protesters vowed to avenge three of their number who had been killed by riot police. Demonstrators spent the day regrouping inside the grounds of a hospital after being ousted from their nearby camp on the Pearl Roundabout in the capital's centre by up to 500 officers who attacked shortly after 3.15am local time. Their numbers rose to 4,000 by late afternoon, and plans for a rally on Friday were in full swing.

Although this seems exaggerated I thought I would share it any way:

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - According to informed sources Shia organizations invited more than a million people to participate the biggest anti government protests in the country.

Afew second ago by uprising the protests in the country, Saudi Arabia intervene the Bahrain affairs by sending 150 Tanks and 100 personnel carriers from Qatar to crack down Shia protesters.

Tanks in the Bahraini capital, Manama, prevent ambulances from taking the victims of clashes to hospitals, as the pro-democracy uprising in the country has entered its fourth day, a report says.

The report also added that Bahraini security forces attack and beat medical workers who are helping the victims on Thursday.

Pro-democracy uprising in Bahrain has entered its fourth day, as protesters, inspired by revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, have taken to the streets to protest against the government's dictatorial policies.

More than a dozen army tanks and several military ambulances and trucks are seen in a main highway in the central Manama.

More than 15 Shia protesters were martyred and over 500 injured in the incident.

Bahraini authorities ban reporters from having any coverage activities.

Bahrain's millitary forces severely banned public gatherings and sent tanks and troops carriers into the streets on Thursday, intensifying a crackdown that martyred more than 15 Shia protesters and wounded more than 2500 and turned a hospital into a cauldron of anguish and rage against the monarchy.

After allowing several days of rallies in the capital of Manama by disaffected Shiites, the island nation's Sunni rulers unleashed riot police who stormed a protest encampment in Pearl Square before dawn, firing tear gas, beating demonstrators or blasting them with shotgun sprays of birdshot. Along with two who died in clashes with police Monday, the new killings brought the death toll this week in Bahrain to more than 15, including women and children.

The willingness to resort to violence against largely peaceful demonstrators was a sign of how deeply the monarchy fears the repercussions of a prolonged wave of protests.

Speaking to reporters after an emergency meeting with his Gulf counterparts in Manama to discuss the unrest, he called the violence "regrettable," said the deaths would be investigated and added that authorities chose to clear the square by force at 3 a.m. - when the fewest number of people would be in the square - "to minimize any possibility of casualties." Many of the protesters were sleeping and said they did not receive any warning of the assault.

In the wake of the bloodshed, angry demonstrators who milled around one hospital for treatment or to transport wounded friends and relatives chanted: "The regime must go!"

They stomped on and burned pictures of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa outside the emergency ward at Salmaniya Medical Complex, the main hospital where most of the casualties were taken.

"We are even angrier now," shouted Makki Abu Taki, after viewing the birdshot-riddled body of his son in the hospital morgue. "They think they can clamp down on us, but they have made us angrier. We will take to the streets in larger numbers and honor our martyrs. The time for Al Khalifa has ended."

The Obama administration expressed alarm over the violent crackdown. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called the foreign minister to register Washington's "deep concern" and urge restraint. Similar criticism came from Britain and the European Union, and Human Rights Watch urged Bahraini authorities to order security forces to stop attacks on peaceful protesters.

Analysts said the wave of unrest has so concerned leaders in the Gulf that they are willing to risk bloodshed.

"It was one thing when it was happening in Tunisia and Egypt and another when it arrives on their doorstep," said Toby Jones, an expert on Bahrain at Rutgers University. "The (Gulf rulers) are closing ranks now and showing how they are prepared to deal with challenges to their power. Their first instinct is to act quickly. It may be messy, but they don't want this to linger.

"They see that (if) it can happen in Bahrain, it could happen anywhere - something that was unthinkable just weeks ago," Jones added.

Manama was effectively shut down. For the first time in the crisis, tanks and armored personnel carriers rolled into the streets and military checkpoints were set up. The Interior Ministry warned Bahrainis in mobile phone text messages to stay off the streets. Banks and other key institutions did not open, and workers stayed home, unable or to afraid to pass through checkpoints to get to their jobs.

Bahrain's parliament - minus opposition lawmakers who are staging a boycott - met in emergency session. One pro-government member, Jamila Salman, broke into tears. A leader of the Shiite opposition Abdul-Jalil Khalil said 18 lawmakers resigned to protest the killings.

Salmaniya hospital was thrown into chaos immediately after the police raid. A steady stream of dozens of wounded from the square were brought in by ambulances and private cars. Nurses rushed in men and women on stretchers, their heads bleeding, arms in casts, faces bruised. At the entrance, women wrapped in black robes embraced each other and wept.

Tanks in the Bahraini capital, Manama, prevent ambulances from taking the victims of clashes to hospitals, as the pro-democracy uprising in the country has entered its fourth day. The report also added that Bahraini security forces attack and beat medical workers who are helping the victims on Thursday. More than 10 ambulance paramedics attacked by police.

According to informed sources army attacked empty handed defenseless people which thousands people martyred and injured.

There is not exactly information about the killed persons, but according to informed sources more than 20 Shia people martyred and more than 3 thousands injured. It includes 2000 youths, 400 old men, 250 women, 70 children, which about 300 of the injured are in critical conditions.

Shia organizations invited more than a million people to participate the biggest anti government protests in the country on saturday.

Due to clashes between army and Shia protesters in Bahain, 60 protesters have gone missing since last night.

A top defence ministery officer and other 12 high ranking internal ministery agents imprisoned due to their refusal of killing innocent people.

It is said that 4 ministers including Health minister, Foreign minister, Reconciliation minister and one more have resigned according to local news.

With tensions rising, Saudi Arabia intervened the Bahrain affairs by sending 150 Tanks and 100 personnel carriers from Qatar to crack down Shia protesters. Troops from Kuwait, India, Pakistan Entered Bahrain to Crack Down Protesters, Witnesses Say.

According to Reuters: Bahrain high ranking officers held emergency meeting of Gulf Arab foreign ministers in Manama.

So, as usual and as the history is repeating itself....WHEN THE SHIA SCHOLARS in Bahrain will issue a fatwa calling on People to defend themselves by all means? Maybe after a few thousands are massacred? Are they scared of being arrested?

satyaban + your hypocrite friends: where are you? I did not see a word on so called 'humanity' and human rights here... Don't you see women and children in blood? Or just like Lesbo Clinton, you are too very concerned and asking Iranian terrorist groups to go on strike on the streets and fight Islam?

BBC was reporting that if things get ugly, the Saudis will intervene (according to a source close to the Kingdom).

If the Saudis were to go in and massacre the Shias, will Iran just watch by?

A 2 year old girl has also been killed.

When an adult attends demonstrations and marches tey know the risks but for a 2 year old's life to be extinguishes is without defense. Where were the parents of this child? I am not blaming them but they could have exercised better judgement.

So when are Hezbollah guys heading for Bahrain then.

Can't Hezbollah use their airforce and navy?

That is why I can never find any respect for kinds of you... First time you reply on Bahrain and that BS... In one reply stating on why ppl use Zionist sources and at the next post blaming the parents of a child for the murder of a 2 year old kid by the government. It was PEACEFUL demonstration as in Egypt some people came out with their families! You MORON!

Why you never ask the question that why police and the government of Bahrain killed the protesters at first place? So, if the child's murder was a mistake of the parents according to your hypocritical ideas, then what about the adults who were sleeping and were attacked? Have some shame! Are you waiting for Clinton to change her statements and flipflop like she did on Egypt, then you as a follower of a dictator will change your position on a simple forum? Have some freedom of judgment, realize your God given freedom.

Can't Hezbollah use their airforce and navy?

No, Hezbullah can send 2 million Zionist (those who went to occupy others land on the basis of their religious scriptures) to underground basements... and humiliate the strongest army in the world... who only could fly 10000 miles up in the sky and drop bombs on civilians of Qana!

You ARE blaming the victim, when any sane person can definitely see the one who was absolutely wrong was the one who was doing the violence, i.e. the government.

They were not planning to fight anyone. I've seen protesters in the USA. They also bring their children and their old.

Like I said before, the Government shouldn't mow down its citizen with tanks. Can you imagine if the US government sends down tanks to disperse the protesters. In fact, have you been reading any news about Wisconsin. They were about 25, 000 people protesting today. People in Wisconsin have rights. Shias in Bahrain dont have any rights or equal representative. And Bahrain is the place where many Indians go to get better job and opportunity. But all this is denied to its own citizen because they are Shias.

The Bahrain Shias traveled from rural villagers. They even brought their cooking stoves, utensils, bed sheets and pillows. Their women, children and babies.

You are not for any of those things, as the injustice and blatant oppression against Shia, your MUSLIM brothers are being butchered while being peaceful and nonviolent.

The victim is the child who had no say in the matter. This motther exercised incredibly poor judgement and her child, who was placed in her and her husband's care by who, if you believe as I do God.

The difference is that brutal behavior was to be expected of the regime in Bahrain. Google David Kouresh or Wako, Texas to see what the US govt can send.

I know I look like a very bad person but a parents highest priority is to protect their children. It should go without saying that the govt highest priority is to protect its citizens not attack and kill them.

I've read that many of them are passive like you say, but I also read in numerous articles that there are a good amount of Sunnis in the streets together with the Shia, and there have been a lot of chants of "No Sunni, no Shia, we are all Bahraini".

Just like Rasool Allah (pbuh) used "incredibly poor" judgement when he took the young Imam Hassan (as) and baby Imam Hussein (as) to the mubahala with the christians? Rasool Allah (pbuh) new there was not going to be violence, and these mothers (as many posters have said before me) are there with their whole families at what were peaceful protests before the government of Bahrain stepped in and started murdering people. They didn't take their babies to the frontlines of a war, they took them to peaceful rallies which were very much a family event with no expectation for violence. To say the mother is at fault for her baby's death is not only incredibly insensitive but it is a fallacy based on your apparent hate (I don't know what that hate is yet, it might be Shi3as).

Not only that, but what would you say about Imam Hussein (as) taking his 6 month old baby with him to Karbala? Was that also incredibly poor judgement? The people of Bahrain have been oppressed and have reached a stage where they want freedom at any cost and some have even unwillingly sacrificed their babies. This should not be taken lightly nor should you ever judge somebody in a position you will never understand.
