- Update on Bahrain - Arab Democracy Protests in D.C.

Protests in D.C.
Abdulla said today: "The European parliament has been condemning the
violent repression of peaceful protesters in Bahrain to no avail while the
U.S. government has been silent. Then, yesterday, the U.S. finally said
something about the Bahrain regime eliminating opposition parties and the
regime immediately backed off. This shows the U.S. government has real
influence. Unfortunately, instead of getting the regime to stop its
violence, it has backed it."
