    I'll try to provide you for this day 13/2 huge protest.

    and for mentioning the political naturalization you should watch the video in this link:
    Video: Political Naturalization in Bahrain | Bahrain Center for Human Rights

    Just living near by Bahrain and visiting it, does not mean you know everything.
    Yes, I know about their naturalized population.. and I am not in Bahrain.. I am telling you what my American friends who have lived there for decades are saying.

    The young Shia want free housing and jobs they are not qualified for...

    Since 1950 they periodically break out in strikes and riots.

    I don't want to see Bahrain crash and fail.. Its as simple as that.

    Even now.. their economy is suffering and the GCC is bailing them out AGAIN.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess your friends live in the sheltered ex-pat communities. Their version of events is probably not all that accurate. I've lived in similar communities in some third world countries and I know how out of touch the people who live in them are with the actual local population. I also know people who've moved to Bahrain for extended periods of time. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. But I really doubt that any Westerners live among the local population in a place like Bahrain.

    A lot of people have that sort of concept, but I don't know any Americans who are not out in the broader community every day.

    Let me try here..

    Not all Shia are underclass, but the underclass is mostly Shia..

    When your friends come back ask them what happened this day and on 14/2.
    They will not fail. Even if they would not have a constitutional kingdom or republic, the housing, jobs and the sectarian discrimination will be solved.
    Some say the UK does not want an unstable country with every decade protest, and thinking to solve the problem.
    The biggest problem that the Bahraini people facing is the Saudi intervention. Which, I think, neither USA nor UK like it.

    Here is some videos of what you call them some hundreds demonstrations, these videos captured today, so it is fresh videos:

    Huge crowds of protesters

    crack down of a protest

    Watch the over use of tear gas what have done, this is just a sample:

    Always blaming someone else...

    Bahrain isn't about democracy.. Its about the have nots wanting more and dominating those who have achieved something.

    I have been caught up in an hysterical Shia riot and I will NEVER forget it.

    And if you are correct in your numbers... 150,000 people is ten percent of the Bahraini population.
    10% is huge.

    Not if you are familiar with the Shia underclass...

    They will riot at the drop of a hat.. and its sexually charged hysteria.

    Most Shia are not like that.. they are busy working and raising families.. Its not about democracy.

    It means they start jumping and ululating and have erections poking up the cloth of their clothing when they attack your car with rocks and brickbats.

    before I say anything, I have to make sure and ask, Are you joking?!
    if you are, it is not a funny joke.
