Middle East: Islam: Ramadan begins, the first of the Arab Spring | Spero News

Middle East: Islam: Ramadan begins, the first of the Arab Spring | Spero News | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
The month of fasting from food and water from sunrise to sunset, could result in a decline in political and social tensions in countries where the fight against regimes is still alive.

Ramadan this year will also be the first of the new Arab political new season. In many countries people will not drink and not eat, trying to continue to take to the streets and fight for change. Forty degrees in fasting from dawn to dusk will in all likelihood reduce political confrontation to the minimum. It will weaken the protest give regimes a month’s breathing space. This is what the Syrian regime hopes for: Ramadan as a last resort.

Arab Spring's hope for people

Arab Spring's hope for people | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Take the term revolution in the sense of often violently demolishing an entrenched regime, uprooting its governing structures and destroying its symbols. While this may describe the events in Egypt (minus the violence on the part of the revolutionaries), it does not apply to Libya for instance where civil war is a more adequate description. While the term pro-democracy movement may properly describe the events in Tunisia, it is not helpful in furthering our understanding of the events in Syria or Bahrain where the term rebellion would be more appropriate

Political, Social Turmoil in MENA (first half of 2011) | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
As turbulence and violence have beset West Asia and North Africa over the past months, stability remains elusive and even appears a distant dream for the region. Countries in the region need to make greater efforts to solve their deep-rooted problems to satisfy their peoples' wishes and restore longed-for stability and development as soon as possible.

Ramadan - Season laced with fear and sadness

Ramadan - Season laced with fear and sadness | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
During the holy month of Ramadan, a month of fasting, prayers and reflection, empathy for those who are less fortunate will be lived out in homes where parents lost their sons and daughters in Egypt’s Tahrir Square protests, and for children who lost their fathers at Libya’s frontlines. Others will be praying for loved ones held in prisons in Bahrain, Syria and Yemen and for those gone missing during government crackdown on dissent, their unknown fate a question which haunts their families.

BAHRAIN OPPOSITION LEADER CALLS FOR SUNNI-SHIITE HARMONY | İslâmi Davet – Islamic Invitation

BAHRAIN OPPOSITION LEADER CALLS FOR SUNNI-SHIITE HARMONY | İslâmi Davet – Islamic Invitation | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
A Bahraini Shiite opposition leader called for Sunni-Shiite harmony on Friday as thousands of protesters marched in Manama, a day after residents of a town south of the capital reported sectarian clashes.
“I will consider any attack against anyone in this country as an attack against me,” Sheikh Ali Salman, the head of the Islamic National Accord Association (INAA), the main Shiite political formation, told thousands of demonstrators marching on the King Faisal Corniche in Manama.
Shiites should guarantee the safety of every Sunni family, and Sunnis should do the same for the Shiites, Salman said.

Oslo Freedom Forum - Dawn of a New Arab World | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
DAWN OF A NEW ARAB WORLD featured speakers from Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Tunisia and will look at the changing landscape of the Arab world. In the post-Colonial era, the Arab world has been dominated by military dictatorships, which have not been accountable to their people; however, we are witnessing history—people are in the midst of changing their governments in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya and protests are forcing change in Syria, Bahrain, and other countries. Even in places like Saudi Arabia, they are starting to respond to the demands of their people by promising reforms. Is this a true paradigm shift to an open and democratic Arab World, or simply a mirage?
