Bahrain Cracks Down on Doctors

Bahrain’s government is brutal. First, they made it illegal to protest. Then, they made it a crime to be injured by security forces. Now, they’ve been arresting medical staff for healing civilians hurt during demonstrations.

Preventing doctors from treating patients? What an atrocious injustice… almost as egregious as the underwhelming silence from the world’s governments.

Where’s the UN Intervention? Where’s the outpouring of support from Obama? Why is Libya treated differently from Bahrain?

The answer, of course, is that Bahrain resides under Saudi Arabia’s protective wing while maintaining strong ties to the United States.

For as long as they hold their political allegiances, it seems Bahrain’s crimes against humanity will go unnoticed by the powers that be. Such blatant hypocrisy!

The only solution, then, is for the rest of us – those amongst us who believe an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere -  to make enough noise, so that our governments have no choice but to listen.
