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.

Bahrain: Pregnant woman attacked by regime forces whilst breaking fast

Bahrain: Pregnant woman attacked by regime forces whilst breaking fast | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Bahraini regime forces raided two homes in Sanad last night, brutally assaulting a woman in the process. They verbally insulted another women whilst aiming their guns at others.

On Friday 3rd August the Darkness Gangs raided a home at dusk, as people were preparing to break their fast, insulting, attacking and humiliating those inside.

In an inhumane and outrageous way, Darkness Gangs brutally attacked a pregnant woman by kicking her in the stomach and insulting her with all manner of disrespectful words, showing a lack of any moral or religious values. Such actions reveal the appalling mentality of the security forces that behave more as thugs in a gang than a decent security system.

The gang that raided the home consisted of both civil police and riot police, with one member pointing a gun at a group of people who had gathered near the house. ...

"The Koran specifically says the sick, travellers and combatants do not have to respect the fast if they are unable to," Brahim said of the dawn-to-dusk fast observant Muslims are expected to adhere to during Ramadan.
"Our cause is also sacred -- it's a jihad. There is no question of us giving Kadhafi the advantage, especially since he's in a poor position. This is not the moment" to stop fighting, he added.

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.
