Jordanians To Bahraini Officials : Enough With Injustice And Oppression

We don’t need the entire world population to create a better one, such international citizens who care for each others. and unified over any type of categorizing people would be enough. Picture for Eman Jaradat, a Jordanian activist.

Both of the regime in Bahrain and the revolts found themselves in awkward moment trying to justify to the rest of the world why are they doing what they do. Of course  revolts want the rest of the world to support them, so they have  to convince others with their reasons, and they have to develop some sort of argument in order to encourage others to agree with them. But why would the regime do that? Friend of mine, a Syrian activist  believes that in the current century no regime can abuse the authority on harmless citizens without opposition or at least questioning from the international community and the people of the world. Today with the fast communications, extended knowledge, and cross-cultural relationships we care for each other, we work for each other, and many of us call themselves international citizens, and those citizens are absolutely beyond any form of categorizing, and united under greater title named the globe.

Revolts in Bahrain promoted their peaceful actions, they even in many points, in my opinion, gave up the right of self

Officials of Manama, capital of Arabic culture for the year 2012, targeted artists, journalists, and many others participated in protests in early 2011 demanded more freedom, yet they are spinning the world promoting their regime as the leading liberal and democratic regime in the region.

defense, just to prove to the rest of the world that they are not riots, not terrorists, they are not damaging their country, they don’t promote violence or hate, but they seek for more freedom, more liberty, and their own simple rights. Did it work or not? Did they stick with peaceful acts or had to use violence whether its called riot or resistance? those are questions need to be looked at, however when you try to put those questions in prospective, don’t forget to note what Alaa abdulfatah, the Egyptian activist said to Julian Assange on his TV show; that they in their revolution needed to use violence to achieve their goals, that they used Molotov cocktails to defend themselves from pro Mubbarak police, and the their revolution is not only limited to the smart guys on social media.

On the other hand the regime in Bahrain defended itself by saying that the people protesting are Shiites supported by Iran and Southern Lebanon and they have their own religious based agenda which is against the Sunni majority in the middle east. Although its very obvious to anyone try to look at the demands of the revolts, to their rich history of pro democracy fight. that those accusations are not real, its however worked in society prepared to accept the slavery, to blindly obey their so called “Shaiks’ Its certainly didn’t work at the western side of the planet, and apparently didn’t worked in Jordan either, one of many other nations support the people of Bahrain.

Activists @ RubaAlbream , @Andareee , @jumana666 , @kharooof and @eman made sure to let us know that the regime’s media strategy didn’t work on them. Those Jordain activists protested during a lecture for Bahrain’s minister of culture affairs in Amman. “Government kills its own people doesn’t deserve to be the capital of Arabic culture” they chanted over and over again. Although what appears to be security escorted every one raised outside the building, they succeed to stop the minister from talking for about five times. ” We chanted for Abdulhadi Alkhawaja (…) we are the people of Jordan refuse the injustice” Aya tweeted.

Maybe not all of the Jordains are tolerated with the differences of people’s religions and beliefs as those activists, in fact, many comments in websites on what did they do were totally shameful, but it needed only those five persons to bring respect to Jordan and Jordanians, to open a gate of love, tolerance and communication between two nations, we don’t need the entire world population to create a better world, we only need those who cares.

Bahrain is Lulu

"Farooq Junction" after vanishing Lulu landscape in a military operation supported by Saudi troops. The junction remain closed since last March when the operation took place.

 

I was inspired to write this post after reading the following tweet, that was mentioned in the article Bahrain: Celebration and Criticism Greet “Manama, Capital of Arab Culture 2012″ on globalvoices.com

@Hu4mansoor: ليس طريقا للؤلؤ ذاك الذي لا يمر على دوار اللؤلؤة. #bahrain #14feb
It is not a Path of Pearls if it doesn’t lead to the Pearl Roundabout.

Its rather ironic that Bahrain started its opening ceremony for celebrating its “unfair” granted title of Capital of Arab Culture 2012 with a musical performance called “The Path of Pearls”. Yes Bahrain is known and well always known with Pearls, just because it is the host of finest pearls ever and many if not the most of locals were working in pearls hunting before discovering the oil on the island. But, however, authorities tried and obviously failed in deleting this fact from the country’s history just after the civilized citizens protested in the well known “Lulu” square in the middle of the capital Manama.
.
With a very radical mind, the authorities not only changed it’s name to “Al-Farooq” junction, the very sectarian name that they thought will increase the tension among the divided to Shiites and Sunnis locals, but also destroyed a beautiful landscape of the pearl in the middle of the square and installed ugly traffic lights that remained closed with maximum security since last March.
.

Bahrain’s government also withdraw the ” 500 Fils” coins and stopped it from being used just because it had the picture of Lulu symbol  on one of its sides. But they anyway didn’t had the courage to change the name of one of oldest and famous malls in the heart of Manama called “Lulu Mall”. They, then, lacked the intelligence to achieve one of the most meaningless polices they adopted to handle the sequences of  the revelation.

.
Its seriously funny, that they chose the same theme they were fighting over a year now to their opening ceremony. And its defiantly worthy to notice that almost in the same time the formal opposition in Bahrain announced their open sit-in in one of the villages while many people are getting prepared to head back to Lulu square on the next February 14th. Although its very obvious how aggressively the regime attack the daily marches in Bahrain, we are eager to see how the cultured regime will handle the two major upcoming events.
