A spokesman for Amal was not available for comment but Wefaq said the court's action was part of a campaign to intimidate opposition parties.

"It is another indicator of the slow crackdown that's going on. Bahrain is swimming against the current; I'm sure this policy will fail," said Matar Matar, a former Wefaq member of parliament.

Amal has often set itself apart from a coalition of opposition parties led by Wefaq. It has complained of being targeted because it rejected out of hand the idea of a national dialogue with the government aimed at ending political crisis. ...

Letter to President Obama from daughter of Bahrain, Amal Islamic Society Chairman, Sheikh Moahmmed Ali Almahfoodh

Letter to President Obama from daughter of Bahrain, Amal Islamic Society Chairman, Sheikh Moahmmed Ali Almahfoodh | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Dear Mr President,

I am writing to you from Bahrain. First, I would like to congratulate you concerning Bin Ladin. However, I am writing to you concerning my country Bahrain. I am the daughter of Sheikh Moahmmed Ali Almahfoodh, the chairman of Amal Islamic Society. I would like to tell you that yesterday he was detained with my two brothers to an unknown destination. A month ago, my husband was arrested as a hostage.

Mr President, This action is your full responsibility, since your policy is to spread democracy. Your administration condemned the dissolve of the societies, and therefore, you have the upper hand to release my father and brothers, and husband. My mother has collapsed as to the news. I beseech your help and protection, and whatever happens to my detained family is under your responsibility.

Finally, I strongly urge your administration to prove to the world that the US respects their values and morals, and not double standards as many people are pointing out currently. I always looked at the US constitution as my aspiration to a better world.
I want to thank you for your time, and I hope something happens to reunite my family again.

Best wishes,
Hajar Mahfoodh
