Many people say as I and others are Shi’a-Muslim, our loyalty is to Iran and not to our own country. This makes me sad and angry: just because I am a Shi’a, that doesn’t mean I am related to any Iranian relations or come originally from Iran. I am a Bahraini, no matter what my religious or division, ethnicity or sexuality is!! Shi’a, Sunni, Christian, Atheist, Jewish, White, Black, Arab, Bedouin, Asian, Gay, Straight, etc… can all be loyal Bahrainis who love and want the best for their country.
I have been hearing the shots and the screams from home… I have been watching video clips of the army attacking their people, people of my country are dying, injured and scared to even go out from their houses. A DEVIL of a government that order their police forces and army to this to their own people. Yet we hear many people linking everything to Iran just because the dissaffected and the protestors are mainly Shi’a. Bahrainis went out to ask for their rights, no matter what division they are from !! Clear and simple!
