officially Kingdom of Bahrain

(Kingdom of the Two Seas),
is a small island country with approximately 1,234,596 inhabitants (2010), located near the western shores of the Persian Gulf and ruled by the Al Khalifa royal family. While Bahrain is an archipelago of thirty-three islands, the largest (Bahrain Island) is 55 km (34 mi) long by 18 km (11 mi) wide.

Saudi Arabia lies to the west and is connected to Bahrain via the King Fahd Causeway, which was officially opened on 25 November 1986. Qatar is to the southeast across the Gulf of Bahrain.

Bahrain is known for its oil and pearls.

Bahrain has been inhabited since ancient times. Its strategic location in the Persian Gulf has brought rule and influence from the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, and the Arabs, under whom the island became Islamic.

Pearl Square news --
my nephew knocks over
the first domino

L3 alludes to the domino theory promoted by the U.S. government during 1950s to 1980s. The theory speculated that
“if one land in a region came under the influence of communism, then the surrounding countries would follow in a domino effect.”

During an April 7, 1954 news conference, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower put the theory into the following words:

“Finally, you have broader considerations that might follow what you would call the "falling domino" principle. You have a row of dominoes set up, you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is the certainty that it will go over very quickly. So you could have a beginning of a disintegration that would have the most profound influences.”

May be you know that BAHRAIN was one of the Iranian provinces about 45 years ago that has been rented by UK Government for fifty years!!
Then and after fifty years that UK was ruling that Province then SHAH the king of Iran accepted t...hat the Bahrain people decide whether they want to have their own country OR they reamin a province of Iran
At that time people decided to have their own country.
60 ton 70% of the Bahrain population are SHIAAT MUslims(similar to Iran) and most of them speak Persian Language.But unfortunately the 40% SUNI MUslims are now ruling the country and Shiaat are not permitted to have governmental positions and they can not enter the Army too !!!
Now these 70% population In Bahrain are fighting for Freedom,Exactly similar to the Majority of Iranians that are fighting for freedom since Islamic republic of Iran doesn,t accept this 70 Million Population of Iran to have their vown rights !!
Bahrainees are demonstrating in Pearl Square and Iranians are demonstrating in Freedom Square in tehran

for the courageous people of Bahrain :
