    No its not funny joke.. Our driver was cut very badly.

    Its really no different than Rock Wednesday in Arabia when Shia decided to attack American homes and were only stopped by Sunni civilians.

    (CNN) -- Two American women were arrested during a demonstration Saturday in the capital of Bahrain, with state news and one of the women's husbands offering divergent accounts as to whether they were then deported.
    
    Huwaida Arraf and Radhika Sainath arrived in Bahrain several days ago and obtained tourist visas, reported the state-run Bahrain News Agency .
    
    They were arrested Saturday afternoon by authorities in Manama, the news agency and the advocacy group Witness Bahrain both said.
    
    Adam Shapiro, Arraf's husband, told CNN late Saturday from Ireland that the two have been charged with being at an illegal gathering -- because the protest they were at was not considered legal -- as well as giving false reasons for entering the county. He based his account on talks with U.S. embassy officials, though he hadn't talked with his wife directly.
    
    He denied that the women had been deported back to the United States, as the Bahrain News Agency reported.
    
    Rather, Shapiro said the women spent part of what was early Sunday morning at a Bahraini court hearing attended by a prosecutor, their lawyers, a judge and two U.S. embassy officials.
    
    U.S. State Department spokesman Harry Edwards confirmed the American embassy was aware and engaged in the case, noting that consular officials had visited the pair.
    
    Arraf gave a statement to police in English that was written down in Arabic, her husband said. She refused to sign the statement because it was not translated back to English, according to Shapiro.
    
    Neither woman appeared to have suffered any sort of injuries, U.S. embassy officials told Shapiro.
    
    The advocacy group Witness Bahrain said both Arraf and Sainath are human rights lawyers. They were in the Middle Eastern country as part of an effort to have more civilians from different nations on the ground to monitor the situation.
    
    Sainath wrote a piece Friday for Witness Bahrain, saying, "Surely, the government would behave differently if Americans and Europeans were watching."
    
    "Our team came together: attorneys, human rights activists, social workers, journalists and others who had experience with nonviolent resistance and democracy movements in Mexico, Palestine, Pakistan and the United States," she said.
    
    The Bahrain protests began February 14, 2011 -- following popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. But they failed to gain the traction of other Arab Spring uprisings following a crackdown that first month and then again in mid-March by Bahraini authorities -- backed by troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
    
    Demonstrators and Bahraini authorities have continued to clash, with the opposition accusing the government of being heavy handed in its crackdown on protests.


    Bahrainis are demanding democracy, constitutional kingdom or republic, YOU PEOPLE all over the world should support them...

    On 2/14 the Bahraini revolution will complete a year. And the protesters are promising a big demonstrations, while the regime there is not giving permissions for the press to enter Bahrain.
    With Americans getting into trouble in middle eastern countries and being charged with spying why would any American in their right mind go to a middle eastern country.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    it i impossible for and angry man to have an erection.
    If a man have an erection and his mode turned to anger, he will lose his erection.

    If you are not making this up, Either the vividity made you see things that does not exit or Bahrainis are another human species.





    Again, we do not know, why would we believe you?

You don't have to be a raging communist to wonder at how an obscenely rich ruling elite can mismanage their nation's resources so badly that a situation like this arises.

    LOL - is that so? LOL

    heavens - we're not stupid, we know very well that some men thrive on anger and such strong emotions to feed their sexuality.

    Oh, poor you.
    Bahrain has a very, very small oil production.. for domestic consumption.. The money goes to pay for social services and running the government.

    Start with the facts. It ain't billions.. its hardly millions.
