Bahrain Rights Situation Worse Than Before, Reports Say
23/11/2012 – 2:51 p
A year after Bahrain said it would implement reforms recommended by an independent body, the Gulf monarchy was accused by human rights groups of not doing an adequate job of implementing them. And in some cases, the human rights situation has become worse.
Human Rights Watch, or HRW, accused the Sunni kingdom of worsening its human rights situation even after it said it would follow recommendations issued by an independent commission.
And now, quotes from the Kuwait News Agency, linked to the dictatorial regime in Kuwait. I don’t often quote from such sources. But now I will do so, to show how the slogan “Slavery is freedom” is not just in George’s Orwell’s novel 1984, but also in present day propaganda.
Bahrain, UAE most economically free Arab countries – report
23/11/2012 | 03:36 PM
BERLIN, Nov 23 (KUNA) — Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are home to the highest levels of economic freedom among Arab nations, a specialized international economic report has unveiled.
The annual Economic Freedom of the Arab World report is compiled by German Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty (FNF), the International Research Foundation (IRF) of Oman and the Fraser Institute, Canada’s leading public policy think-tank.
The propaganda mouthpiece for the Kuwaiti princely autocracy forgets to mention that these three organizations are linked to the German small neo-conservative FDP political party, the absolute monarchy of Oman, and the Canadian conservative party, respectively. No objective economic science at all.
Bahrain, which ranked first last year, improved its overall score to 8.1 out of 10 from 8.0. The UAE also scored 8.1, tying with Bahrain after ranking second overall in 2011 with a score of 7.9. Jordan moved into the third spot from eighth overall, improving its score to 7.9 from 7.4 last year, showed the report.
Research shows that individuals living in countries with high levels of economic freedom enjoy higher levels of prosperity, greater individual freedoms, and longer life spans.
However, CEOs of multinational corporations will not have that kind of problems in Kuwait, the UAE, Bahrain, Jordan or Saudi Arabia. They count, according to the German Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty, the International Research Foundation (IRF) of Oman and the Fraser Institute in Canada. The local people in those dictatorships don’t count.
