Unbelievably the other Middle Eastern ‘leaders’ did not learn the right lessons from Ben Ali & Mubarak. Instead of listening to the people, they have cracked down murderously as the events unfolding in Bahrain, Libya, Yemen are proving. Using weapons bought with the permission and mostly likely encouragement from the British Government on innocent and brave but defenceless civilians, the ruling royal family in Bahrain have proven themselves to be the amongst the lowest in all humanity, even bringing in mercenaries to come and murder their own people. They have vindicated the protesters and shown their true colours to the world. Shame on them and their supporters.
The sorrow I feel as an Egyptian watching this is immense. Watching others go through the same inevitable hell to gain freedom and dignity is terrible. Solidarity to my sisters and brothers fighting for freedom everywhere.
