salaam everyone so today i got a little time to update my Blogs and i wanna address a question i know many of u have had on your minds: what in the hamburgers am i doing in Bahrain??? isn't it like this dangerous war-zone or something???
i know the Western media (even other news broadcasts in the Gulf which is why my Khaleeji husband's family are trippin' also) has been showing images like this:
but honestly Bahrain over all pretty much looks like this:
errrrr ok i couldn't find a picture of normal people doing normal things in Google but take my word that it's safe where we are and i along with many others can continue on with our lives!!
i don't see anything being shown about the ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTORS (a.k.a. Bahrainis who are AGAINST the government protesters) and i've seen what they look like and all it is are a bunch of people waving Bahraini flags and holding signs saying in Arabic "We Are Muslims Not Terrorists" etc. these kinds of demonstrations are usually more in the city like Juffair or Hoora which is closer to Manamah and nobody's getting shot at or killed. lot's of police ya but that's 3adi.
*however* i have seen people before holding big @ss signs of Iranian religious leaders like "Ayatollah" Whatever and i am confused like, "what does Iran have to do with Bahrain or any other GCC country??" i could wonder aloud even more but i don't wanna get into anything political/religious so i will leave this little Post saying that i feel safe in Bahrain and i hope the people will remain calm & safe too :-)
