Current BCHR president Nabeel Rajab was imprisoned numerous times for supporting human rights. He was targeted again after being interviewed on Russia Today.

On December 25, The New York Times provided rare op-ed space. Truth got a rare opportunity. Zainab's commentary was featured. Her outspokenness leaves her vulnerable. She may face arrest like Nabeel. 

She headlined "Bahrain, a Brutal Ally," saying:

In early December, nineteen-year old Aqeel Abudul Mohsen protested peacefully. Security forces shot him in the face.

"He was covered with blood, with the lower side of his face blown open, his jaw shattered, and a broken hand hanging awkwardly from his wrist."

"It's one of those images that you wish you had never seen, and can never forget."

He needed 10 hours of surgery. Police stood guard. Until he regained consciousness, he couldn't be interrogated.

"Others have lain bleeding without medical attention while government security agents asked questions like: "Were you participating in a protest? Who else was with you?"
