Bahrain: One-Family Spirit

Blogger Chanad Bahraini scorns Press reports praising Bahrain's one-family spirit and posts pictures of demonstrations in which police clash with villagers. ‘The “one-family spirit”, it would seem, is the notion that all of Bahrain’s land and resources are the chattel of just “one family”. For if you refuse to be loyal servants of that “one family”, then get ready to deal with this,’ he writes. ‘This’ refers to a photograph of riot police in combat gear, with the smoke from tear gas clouding the background.
