The very peaceful island in Bahrain is almost unknown. Maybe because a peaceful and tiny island that has nothing to do with the political or armed fights around the globe matters a lot to be on the vey valuable time of live on air news time.
BUT! Make no mistake, this doesn’t mean that it has very strategical geographical location, well developed and has it significance on in the gulf area. Yes maybe its not rich as Kuwait or Qatar. well known as Dubai or big as Saudi. but the foundations, infrastructure, and the culture qualified it to be the pointer hub of regions economic and business operations. A very far time ago before Qatar and Dubai raise up.
People of Bahrain took a pointer step again, when they were the first and the only people of the gulf citizens tried to change the structure of their regime, just like what the Tunisians, Egyptians, and people of Libya already established. Its about time that the shape of the third world changes, and if the Bahrainis succeeded, the history, indeed, will record that to them. Therefore Bahrain now is on the map of the political and armed fights, it actually, officially, has the both of them since last February .. but is it on the news now ?
Well, the Saudis invested very well to mute Bahrain. to keep it away from the world’s sight.
because, they consider it their backyard and don’t want anybody to mess with it, so again no matter how Bahrainis depressedly tried to be on the news they will fail, as it is already dominated by the Saudis. Regardless of the shiites sponsored channels which in this case, to be honest achieve nothing. It could be described as a man talking to himself, which make absolutely no sense.
However, yet from time to time Bahrainis come achievements that is hard for news corporations to miss, specially those who had a reputation and respect themselves to some extent, where they, for example, shyly report the hundreds of thousands were marching on March 9, 2012. As the march was a must cover event. Its indeed, one of the points were the locals on this island impress the world with their strength and determination.
Of course, on Internal and very specific level there are many to say and argue about. The religious dynamo of it, the intention of the “officially registered” political party, the fact that its not on a main highway but in a main road inside “almost only” residential areas, and its in fact establish nothing more of what has been established already. However, from a wider prospective, what you can see is a mass population agreed that the current regime in its current from is highly corrupted. Moreover, and which is more important that the people after one year of suffering still up to their fight toward goals .. and the mentioned march was the prove.
