Athletes-torturing Bahraini prince and Paralympics


This video from Britain is called George Galloway‘s message to Olympic Chief Nasser Al Khalifa of Bahrain.

From the Gulf Daily News in Bahrain (a daily which supports the local dictatorship):

Bahrain for Paralympics

Friday, August 17, 2012

GENERAL secretary of the Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) Shaikh Ahmed bin Hamad Al Khalifa

a son of the king. A prince of the Bahraini royal family which violently oppresses pro-democracy activities

yesterday met head and members of the Bahraini delegation leaving to London for the Paralympic Games, which will be held from August 21 to September 7.

At the beginning of the meeting, which was attended by Executive Director of sports affairs Noaman Al Hassan, Shaikh Ahmed conveyed the greetings of His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and president of the Bahrain Olympic Committee

Another prince of the Bahraini royal family and son of the king. You can read in Gulf Daily News indeed that this prince is “Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and president of the Bahrain Olympic Committee”. But you won’t read in this daily mouthpiece of the absolute monarchy that His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa is notorious for advocating violent oppression of human rights activists and for himself torturing athletes for having been present at pro-democracy demonstrations.

and his best wishes for Fatima Abdulrazak and Ahmed Mushaima, who qualified for the Paralympics.

Iran used to win (maybe they still do) lots of medals at the Paralympics. That was because many valid Iranian athletes had been wounded in the Iran-Iraq war.

If His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa continues with his torturing of Bahraini athletes, these people will no longer be able to compete at the Olympics, only at the Paralympics. But His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa will probably ban them from the Paralympics. His Highness has already persecuted at least one disabled Bahraini athlete.

They say that gold doesn’t tarnish, but this week’s scrutiny of school sports programmes in light of Team GB’s medal count has certainly taken a shine off Tory talk of an Olympic legacy: here.
