“Police here for me”
[I] choose to come back [to Bahrain] to continue to espouse sanity and tolerance. To continue to try to show people that regardless of their beliefs, status or wealth, our destinies as Bahrainis are intertwined and it behoves us to find equitable ways to live together and ameliorate our differences.
I don’t want to point fingers nor am interested in apportioning further blame. I favor the recognition of the root causes of this strife in order to move on, no matter how painful that exercise may be.
“Police just came to my house and arrested my father, Mahmood Al-Yousif.”
This story is just really brought to home the fact that there are still so many countries out there that are so controlling over the types of media that are produced within their country and especially what is published and produced using those mediums. I think it is so amazing that through social networks such as Facebook and in this case Twitter, we can learn so much about what is happening in the world around us. We can know about an event the second it happens, if people experiencing it tweet about it. I think that this technology is an amazing way of communication. This whole article was written using sources from Twitter that were sent directly from Mahmood Al-Yousif, his brother and even son.
