Egypt to hold parliamentary vote in November - Middle East - Al Jazeera English | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Egypt's parliamentary elections, a crucial step in transitioning to civilian rule, will be held in November, according to Egyptian state media reports.

In a meeting with reporters in Cairo on Saturday, Abdul Moaez Ahmed Ibrahim, the chief of the Higher Election Commission, said that the elections of both houses of the parliament will be held at the same time and fully supervised by judges.

The election commission was created on July 19 at a meeting of the supreme council of the armed forces, where it was also announced that no international observers would be allowed to monitor the vote.

Major General Mamdouh Shaheen, who presented the new election law to reporters, said barring foreign monitors was a necessary step to protect Egypt's sovereignty.

Freedom House: Ongoing Abuses in Bahrain Delegitimize Upcoming National Dialogue | Bahrain Center for Human Rights

Freedom House: Ongoing Abuses in Bahrain Delegitimize Upcoming National Dialogue | Bahrain Center for Human Rights | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
“By continuing to proceed with hasty prosecutions in military courts of leading opposition political figures and pro-democracy activists, the Bahraini government is in effect removing its political competition,” said Charles Dunne, Freedom House’s senior program manager for the Middle East and North Africa. “These actions strongly suggest that the National Dialogue will not be an opportunity to advance political freedom in Bahrain, but rather a ploy to prevent criticism of its human rights record.” -- PROPHETIC!

U.S. struggles to free money for Libyan rebels | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Despite new diplomatic recognition, the opposition could face a long wait for financial relief.

One obstacle to releasing the money is that much of it was seized under legally binding sanctions imposed against the Gaddafi government by the U.N. Security Council. Unfreezing such accounts would require a consensus vote of the U.N. sanctions committee, according to one senior European diplomat, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, who has shown willingness to engage Hamas, on Saturday reiterated his view that the blockade is "illegal and inhuman" and insisted Israel must end it as another condition for rapprochement.
"He's not exactly making it easy for us to apologize," said one Netanyahu aide in response.
Turkey, once a rare Muslim ally of the Jewish state, withdrew its ambassador to Israel after the incident in May 2010, suspended defense cooperation and closed its airspace to Israeli military planes.

Bahrain's abuse of dissenters: four detailed cases

Bahrain's abuse of dissenters: four detailed cases | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
President Barack Obama referred to them in his speech last week on the Middle East, in which he pointedly told Bahrain that
"you can't have a real dialogue when parts of the peaceful opposition are in jail."

A detailed examination of Bahrain's arrest and treatment of the dissidents shows widespread and systematic abuse that raises questions about whether the country's Sunni Muslim government has crossed a line beyond which it can't restore social peace in the predominantly Shiite Muslim country.
