On April 9, The Project for Middle East Democracy (POMED) sent Obama a similar letter. It urged he publicly call for Abdulhadi's immediate unconditional release, and permission to travel abroad for urgent treatment.
Like Bahraini despots, Obama also wants him silenced. He supports the regime's worst crimes. His own hands are bloodstained. He's a war criminal multiple times over. He plans more across the region and elsewhere, including police state harshness in America.
Barring something unexpected and quick, Abdulhadi's fate may be sealed, but not his spirit and influence. Many others will continue in his absence, thousands of Bahrainis among them.
For over a year, they rallied daily for justice. Their liberating struggle continues. Harsh brutality hasn't stopped them. They won't quit now.
A Final Comment
After 43 days, Israel released Palestinian hunger striker Hana Shalabi. She was lawlessly deported to Gaza. She's not quite free at last. Her liberating struggle also continues.
On April 9, she spoke with Electronic Intifada contributor Rami Almeghari. She's currently being treated at Gaza's Al-Quds Hospital.
