Just another weekend in Bahrain.

A42dCMdCMAEJ_Tz

Since 2011, hundreds of voices in Bahrain have continued a verbal dialogue in defence of Bahrain. Loud, outspoken, even graphic evidence through social media has been shared with the world to expose the atrocities committed by the so called “peaceful revolutionaries”, who are nothing but a group of fanatics who indulge in violence of the most grotesque kind known to the human race. Their mode of communication is homemade bombs, molotov cocktails and sharpened metal rods shot through launchers aimed at unarmed police and unsuspecting civilians in the vicinity while yelling “God is great” and calling for the downfall of the regime. This vicious behaviour even goes on during funerals of so called “martyrs” and yet they claim to be “peaceful”. Isa Qassim is the leader of the shi’aa community and spiritual leader of Al Wefaq in Bahrain – his sermons incite hatred, sectarianism and violence – yet not a word of contempt is uttered by Western observers.

Despite all the proof through photography, video footage, spectators and witnesses – the world’s media who thrive on sensationalism feed like vultures off radicalized and politicized human rights groups, irrational and lob sided voices of “academics” and Bahrainis from the ‘opposition’ who blatantly lie to the UK and USA government and media to the point that many have secured asylum under false pretences.

Child Soldiers in Bahrain

images

The first week of March 2014 took residents and citizens back to the traumatic failed coup d’état attempt in 2011. It was a time of insecurity and fear for most who were in Bahrain at that time and now it seemed the nightmare was upon them again.

On Monday, March 3rd, a series of bombs ripped through a group of police who were clearing an area in Daih as mourners (in their usual style) targeted security personnel with deadly home made weapons. The grim result was three policemen dead and dozens injured, including a photojournalist from a local newspaper. As a result, the village of Daih was on lock down until police could sweep the area to ensure no other explosive devices were planted and to search for the terrorists who had committed such a heinous crime. As ambulances ferried the dead and injured, social media was ablaze as messages of condemnation were shared in real time with the world.

An armed militia group later announced that they were responsible and went on to “celebrate” the death of “mercenaries” as if their lives were of no consequence. As they distributed chocolates and congratulated each other for a job well done, two countries and three devastated families made preparations to bury their men who had bravely protected the people of this country. There were now twelve true martyrs from Bahrain and one from the UAE since 2011.

Nader Abdulemam – a Terrorist in Bahrain

Nader
Nader Abdulemam calls himself a human rights activist and the West is quick to accept his disguise. He assumes the identity of someone who is a caring humanitarian who fights for rights when all in Bahrain know he is nothing more than a violent terrorist.

In 1995 Nader Abdulemam and his gang were caught red-handed burning down Bahrain Islamic Bank in Manama. During questioning he exposed his links to Hezbollah and plans to carry out further terror acts in Bahrain. Despite his heinous crime, within three years of a long sentence, Nader was granted a Royal pardon and released. After his early release Nader was given a full government scholarship after which he was appointed as a Mathematics teacher by the Ministry of Education.

On Saturday 15th February 2014, Abdulemam called for the death of a grieving woman at the funeral of a murdered policeman. Her crime was practicing her freedom of speech as stated in the Bahrain constitution. The lady was visibly distort and publically urged an end to violence and asked the government to take stronger action against terrorism.

On the same day during a protest in Budaiya Nader the “human rights activist” instructed his gang to carry out an attack on a British journalist who he had previously abused via social media.

Nader is the Alwefaq webpage admin, runs several fake accounts calling for violence and continues to be involved in, if not masterminding terror acts in Bahrain. In fact, in February 2011 Nader was one of the main speakers at the GCC Roundabout where, on several occasions he called for the death of Alkhalifa. During the same period, he was part of the group who dragged Asian workers out of their homes, beat, tortured and murdered several. Since Isa Qassim’s fatwa to “crush the police”, Nader incites violence against the police and encourages his gangs to brutally attack security personnel by labeling them as “mercenaries”.

The Feb14 armed militia group is considered a terrorist organization in Bahrain and yet this “human rights activist” is involved in all their brutal attacks on unarmed civilians and police. Sources confirm that he also manages some of the Feb14 social media accounts.

Nader Abdulemam’s core belief is violence with links to terrorists Nabeel Rajab, Alkhawaja, Saeed Shehabi and Mushaima. His own confessions prove his contact with Nasserallah and Khamenei – yet the West calls him a Human Rights Activist.

So, my question to the West is this – why do you call a person who has no value for a non-shiaa life a human rights activist?

Alwefaq is not Bahrain

images

Yesterday on Friday 14th February Isa Qassim, the spiritual leader of Alwefaq ordered his followers to go out and fight for their “rights”.

The same night one policeman died and one is still fighting for his life. Isa Qassim and the illegal and the dissolved Shiaa Scholars Council are personally responsible for the deaths and injuries of unarmed police and civilians. Isa Qassim has murdered ten policemen and left hundreds seriously injured and disabled since February 2011.

Civilians too have suffered at the hands of Isa Qassim’s so “peaceful protesters” by being dragged out of their homes, threatened, beaten, tortured and some murdered in cold blood.

Isa Qassim passed a fatwa to “crush the police” and to date Alwefaq and Feb14 armed militia carry out his deadly instructions on a daily basis.

Isa Qassim wants “shiaa” voices to be heard – pray tell what do they not have in Bahrain? They have jobs, businesses, free education, scholarships, free health, and housing and freedom of speech – what is missing? Could it be the “chair” that Isa Qassim is after under the pretence of “national dialogue”?

Alwefaq does not represent the people of Bahrain.
Alwefaq is a terrorist organization in Bahrain.
Alwefaq has the blood of our martyrs on its hands in Bahrain
Alwefaq is not Bahrain.

The people of Bahrain say NO to dialogue with terrorists!

Foreign Hands in Bahrain

imagesFGRHH1IZ

Every source of social media was in a flurry as February 14th 2014 approached. A special day being the anniversary of the National Charter, and for many it was Valentine’s Day.

For AlWefaq terrorist group, however, they converted this auspicious day into the “anniversary” of their so-called revolution. Once again the strength of the peaceful majority rose above the inconvenience caused by street rogues and carried on as usual. Local groups of terrorists carried out attacks on police, detonated bombs, placed nails in roads, threatened shopkeepers into closing their businesses and even attacked school buses. Yet again, AlWefaq and Feb14 armed militia groups failed, purely because they have lost support for their fanatical agenda supported by foreign countries. Unsurprisingly, so-called human rights defenders and NGOs failed to condemn violence against unarmed police and civilians. The Ministry of Interior police maintained safety and security so the peaceful majority could continue to enjoy a typical weekend in Bahrain.

It is common knowledge that private individuals as well as governments fund Human Rights organizations. Since 2011, not one has come forward to defend the rights of innocent civilians and unarmed policemen terrorist groups who threaten communities into submission. People like Brian Dooley (Director of HRD Program Human Rights First) claim to be human rights activists, yet refuse to engage with moderates and base their lob sided opinions on radical groups with a personal agenda.

What these organizations have failed to report is, at this time of the year, many villagers travel so that they are not faced with any violence when they reject the armed militia groups’ efforts to force residents and local businesses to turn off power and close down for a few days. If residents refuse, they will be considered traitors and will be subjected to physical attacks and the destruction of their property.

Any doubt that the fanatical groups are supported by Western governments directly or indirectly should be eliminated based on the organized way in which they continue to plan events abroad with dubious funding.

Bahrain The Financial Centre

AV3F1125_0

Bahrain gained independence from British protection on December 16th 1971. The vision of the government was to lay a solid foundation for the national economy that would remain stable despite unpredictable international economical fluctuations and to develop and improve the economy to bring benefits to the Bahraini citizens and raise their living standards.  To date the government has remained on this path of progress and the country’s economical stability can be attributed to foresight and strategic planning.

By the mid 1970s Bahrain was the first Gulf State to introduce a reliable telephone and telex service leading the way to new data communication. Net earning from oil had risen from $68million in 1972 to an estimated $528milliom in 1977. Public investment spending rose from $19million to $357 million during the same period. Most of the funds were spent on electricity, water, power, sewage, and expansion of the Mina Salman Port, airport, roads, public housing, schools and health centres.

The first commercial bank, a bank of the British owned Eastern Bank started operations in 1921, the British Bank of the Middle East set-up an office in 1941 and in 1957 the first wholly Bahraini owned private bank the National Bank of Bahrain commenced activity. The Bahraini dinar had already replaced the Indian rupee by 1965 and with the internally convertible currency; banks began to find the country a more attractive location. By 1974 fourteen commercial banks were operating out of Bahrain and the Bahrain Monetary Agency (BMA) became the legal entity possessing the same power as a central bank.

Direct dialing to London started in 1977 ahead of most other regional countries and a second earth station was opened in 1980. UK’s Cable and Wireless (C&W) had a part of these developments spending approximately $95million of its investment between 1978-1982 on international communications.

When civil war broke out in Beirut on April 3rd 1975, many financial establishments moved out of Lebanon. Citi Bank was one of the first to relocate its operation to Bahrain by investing $2billion of assets. The Chairman of BMA – Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Alkhalifa saw this is as an opportunity and promulgated regulations for Offshore Banking Units (OBUs). Within the first year 26 OBUs were established and by 1980 75 OBUs with assets in excess of $62billion were operating out of Bahrain. This was a new era of Banking in Bahrain.

Bahrain – “though small in size, great with the will of its people”.

image

Every December since 1989 I have felt as if the entire country celebrates my birthday and in January 2014, I will celebrate my silver jubilee in Bahrain. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs, but my experiences have left me a fiercely loyal resident of Bahrain. My feeling for Bahrain is summed up in a few eloquent words said by the Prime Minister, HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa “though small in size, great with the will of its people”.

Bahrain may not be the biggest, the most efficient or the prettiest country in the world – but most of us who live here cherish the camaraderie in an integrated society, made up of over 80 nationalities freely practicing Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, Buddism, Sikh, Bahai and Judaism amongst others. Despite all this tolerance and warmth, over the last three years, international media has systematically betrayed the people of this country. Sadly, well-known media houses around the globe have taken it upon themselves to publish false allegations against a nation that unconditionally supports and respects the Al Khalifa family. To add credibility to their blatant lies, enemies of the state, have adopted “learned” academics to publish analysis and jargon that most of us cannot begin to fathom.
