Bahraini State Terror


Bahrain is a tyannical police state.

Al-Khalifa despots run Bahrain. State terror is official policy. Washington supports it. Generous aid is provided. King Hamad remains a close US ally. Double standard hypocrisy defines America's foreign and domestic agenda.

Bahrainis want democratic change. They want popularly elected leaders. They want despotic monarchal rule, ruthless persecution, widespread corruption, and Shia discrimination ended. 

For many months, they've braved tear gas, beatings, rubber bullets, live fire, arrests, torture, imprisonments, and disappearances. They won't quit. The price of freedom is high.

King Hamad calls peaceful protests "foreign plots." He banned them earlier. Unauthorized public meetings and seminars were prohibited.

On October 30, public gatherings were again banned. Authorities call them illegal. Participants face severe harshness. That's how police states operate.
