This has got to be Bahrain's darkest hour! When in the history of human events has violence solicited any other response than more violence? This is an act of desperation, and that should not be! Each Shia is not alone, first they are all in the heart and mind of Allah! Second, they have each other as a support community. Why acts of desperation? When you look at the history of freedom struggles worldwide, the proven success of civil disobedience makes it the venue of choice. This is NOT to say that this path is not full of risks, brutalities, and deaths. There WILL be sufferings on this path. But, the goal of freedom for yourselves, for your children, for all future Bahraini citizens must be the focus. The blacks in America suffered horribly, but MLK led them through this to comparative freedom today, much is to be done, but they are overcoming on this path. The Jews suffered genocidal extermination at the hands of the Nazis, but today they have their own nation. Issa suffered under the Pharsiees/Sadducees/Rome, but his movement lives today! YOU WILL OVERPOWER THIS REGIME WITH YOUR CAPACITY TO ENDURE ANYTHING THEY CAN THROW AT YOU AND STILL BE ASKING FOR FREEDOM! YOU WILL NOT, AND CANNOT, OVERPOWER THIS REGIME BY FORCE! BE STRONG, BE RESOLUTE, STAY FOCUSED! EACH ACT OF VIOLENCE BY THE DEMOCRACY REFORMERS FUELS THE PROPAGANDA MACHINE OF THE REGIME AGAINST YOUR CAUSE. DO NOT GIVE YOUR ENEMY AMMUNITION AGAINST YOURSELF, DO NOT ANSWER VIOLENCE, WITH VIOLENCE! I LOVE YOU ALL, TAKE CARE!
