Saturday, April 02, 2005"Bahrain and the Palestinian Issue 1917-1948" by Bahraini author Khalid Bassam.
Had history taken a different course, Bahrainis would not exist as a people under occupation, or displaced across the Arabian peninsula and Iran. It could have just as easily been us now bombing ourselves into oblivion *cringe*.
Funny this news comes on the same day that Bahrainis celebrate Black Saturday when Bani Jamra came under seige and people were shot dead. This may sound extreme, but for a long time people have made a comparison between the Israeli government and Alkhalifa on policies of discrimination (apartheid), demographic change and the use of live ammunition against unarmed protestors.
