Hamad Alkhalifa, do you know this #Bahrain man:  http://j.mp/q0FLX5  . His name is Jaffar Salman Makki. he has 4yr old twin girls.  He was attacked by your forces in the brutal crackdown against pro-democracy protests. After losing both his eyes, this man was arrested, and tortured in your prisons Hamad. Jaffar was taken to court, wihtout his family knowing, without a lawyer, before he sat in court, he was sentenced to 2 yrs in prison. Jaffar was never asked guilty or not guilty, no evidence was shown. All the Judge said was: 2 yrs sentence for illegal gathering. Jaffer was transferred to Jaw prison, the worst prison in #Bahrainnow. So bad that detainees ask their families not to visit them. many detainees at Jaw told families they get tortured before and after visits, & asked them to just communicate thru 1 call per week. Jaffars family only visited him 2 times in 6 months. In those visits his daughter were not allowed to touch his hand. 4 yr old twins Fatima & Zainab sat across from their blind father & were not allowed to touch his hand or sit in his lap. fter those 2 visits Jaffar like other detainees cudnt take it anymore & told his family to stop visiting him. When his wife got upset he told her they strip him naked before every visit and humiliate him. See this picture & tell me... WHO NEEDS TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM WHO?! Hamad have you no shame, after all your crimes, to tell us, your victims, that YOU will forgive US? I heard Hamad speak, I met Jaffars family, I went to Janusan, I met an injured boy, I chanted with my people "Down Down Hamad" . WHO NEEDS TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM WHO?! Hamad, this is Jaffar after being shot with ur mens shotguns http://j.mp/relJwV Jaffar will never c his daughters again. We are oppressed. Our ppl have been killed, detained, injured and tortured by you Hamad, our chants will continue "Down down Hamad". We will not celebrate Eid this year Hamad. We'd rather continue our struggle, so that maybe, just maybe, next Eid, well be free. he has 4yr old twin girls. He was attacked by your forces in the brutal crackdown against pro-democracy protests.
