Bahrain Update: An-Nu`aymi

Angry Arab chief correspondent on Bahrain wrote this: “I was so busy thinking of the 14 year old that got killed that I forgot to tell you. AbdulRahman AlNoami, founder of Waad, and one of Bahrain’s most prominent leftist activists, passed away last thursday. He was in a coma for four years I believe. He was imprisoned by the Bahraini regime after participating in a labor strike in the 60s. After he was released he left Bahrain and remained in exile for 33 years. He returned to Bahrain in 2001 after Bahrain’s King Hamad instituted “reforms” and asked all Bahrain’s political exiles to come back. In the 1960s and 1970s he was part of Bahrain’s leftist opposition group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Bahrain (Aljabha Alsha’abiyya) (the other one is jabhat al tahrir) which later became Waad. He became their secretary general in 1974. Here is an article about him in the Associated Press:

And a tribute by Bahrain Mirror.

And here is a Waad bio on him.

Also, the mystery surrounding Bahrain’s 30 + dead is resolved. Pro-regime columnist and Saddam lover Samira Rajab said on TV that there is a serial killer on the loose.”

    A Turkish rights group has protested the visit by the king of Bahrain, accusing his Sunni dynasty of carrying out a brutal crackdown on demonstrations for greater rights by the Gulf nation’s Shiite majority.

    The state-run Anatolia news agency says dozens of members of the pro-Islamic advocacy group Mazlumder gathered outside Bahrain’s embassy in Ankara on Sunday and burned posters of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa who is paying a private visit to Turkey.

    Hundreds of people have been arrested since Bahrain protests began in February inspired by other Arab uprisings.

    Turkey, NATO’s biggest Muslim member, has called for reform and an end to violence following the popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.
