    this is with ref to the recent racist comment by the bahraini labour minister mr. alawi after he returned attending labour ministers meet in abu dhabi. its a shame for all the labour ministers who attended the meet and who heard / read his comments on foreign workers are keeping mum. mr. alawi thinks that presence of foreign workers in the middle ease /gulf countries is affecting their culture. before syaing that he should have thought about what was their culture long before they discovered oil/gas. whatever they have acheived today is b’cos of foreign technology / wokers only. now after achieving what they are today he compares foreign worker to an israeli attack and a nuclear bomb. what could be more shameful than this inhuman comparision. is it not a racism??? why are foreign businessmen, workers and other people are keeping mum??? why are they are not raising their voice over this issue??? whar are they affraid of??? are they quite just b’cos they need to earn money??? – without respect!!! come on wakeup.. this is high time we must raise our voices. comeon humanbeings…atleast now…. wakeup!!!
