Amnesty International speaks up on Bahrain


'The Bahraini government must end its relentless crackdown on human rights, Amnesty International said today after the country's parliament voted to extend a repressive state of emergency amid continued arrests of dissidents.

"The Bahraini authorities must stop detaining anyone who opposes them and release protesters who have been locked up for peacefully demanding reform," said Philip Luther, Amnesty International's deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa.'

May God bless amnesty international. Let's hope that Obama and the international community does the right thing on Bahrain.

KSA and Pakistani troops should be replaced by nonsectarian international forces from free democracies [such as Iraq and Turkey.]
