Quotes

The figure of 75%, he said, "fails to account for the high rate of Sunni naturalization of the previous decade or more."
...One of the ways fanatical leaders exploit Ashura in Bahrain is by parading Ayatollah Isa Qassim's quote on banners: "The Battle of Karbala is still going on between the two sides in the present and in the future. It is being held within the soul, at home and in all areas of life and society. People will remain divided and they are either in the Hussein camp or in the Yazid camp. So choose your camp."
...This report highlights impunity as "the greatest obstacle to ensuring effectively the safety of journalists"
"The UN Working Group of Arbitrary Detention has found that the detention of Mr. al-Khawaja and other political prisoners is arbitrary and has called for their immediate release. Ms al-Khawaja herself who resides in Denmark had travelled to Bahrain to visit her father in prison, his health apparently not doing very well, when she was detained at Bahrain airport upon landing, apparently because her Bahraini passport had expired. She was however travelling on her Danish passport."
