Shouting In The Dark

Bahrain's Not So Pretty Spring

Bahrain is a small island kingdom in the Arabian Gulf where the overwhelming Shia Muslim majority are oppressively ruled by a single family of the five percent Sunni minority, that of its king. People fighting for democratic rights broke their barriers of fear, only to find themselves alone and crushed. That seemed at first glance to be a matter of Arab on Arab.
