Hi, I'm from Bahrain. First of all, I'd like to thank the people in here, you seem to actually have compassion, other people from around the internet
seem to be happy because we're arabs. & I'd like to clear something else, we don't hate America or American people, its a myth, I don't know why the
media loves promoting this.
anyway, the media isn't showing the world the actual crimes that are committed by the royal family, the biggest crime is discrimination against Shiite
Muslims, Shiite Muslims cannot work in the military, in the interview they actually ask you if you're Shiite or Sunni, discrimination also applies
when promoting employees, forcing Sunni culture studies in schools, giving Shiites the lowly jobs while Sunnis get the high level jobs, Shiites
represent 60% of the population & Sunnis represent 30%, Christians represent 9% of the population, & the rest are from other religions, & the
government is giving free citizenship to anyone from the world that is Sunni with a guaranteed job, a house, a car, & a lot of other privileges to
offset the population percentage, most of those people are given jobs in the military, & that is why they're showing no remorse when Massacring our
friends & families.
of course there are other crimes, & that is why most Sunni Muslims are protesting alongside Shiite Muslims, those crimes include the whole country is
owned by The Royal Family, anything the country produces goes straight to their pockets, & people are fed up. Other anti-freedom things done by the
government include blocking political websites (& porn, but I digress).
so in other words, Shiites are second class citizens, & the whole Bahrain population is suffering because The Royal Family owns the country, there are
other things, but they're are very detailed & wouldn't be understood by someone not living in Bahrain.
you might also wanna look at this, it details the property & housing problems in Bahrain:
one other thing, this HAS NOTHING TO DO with Iran, the people protesting aren't extremists or fundementalists, they're regular people that have no
freedom, the media again creates a connection between protesters & Iran, just because most protesters are Shiite, which is ridicilous, not every
Muslim is a terrorist, the media loves turning us into their punching bags, not to mention the fact that there are actually Sunnis participating in
I couldn't post a new thread because I don't have 20 posts yet, so I'd really appreciate it if someone posts this in a new thread here & anywhere you
can, including Facebook & other forums you visit regularily.
