Bahrainis in the Fleet of Freedom
Four Bahraini activists participated in the Fleet of Freedom
which set sail from Turkey to break the siege on Gaza. The four
returned to Bahrain and were received by a large crowd. On 7 June
2010, they were also received by the King and MP Nasir Al Fadala.
The four activists are: Shaikh Jalal Al Sharqi, Khalid Bujeri, Yosif
Mahmood and Hassan Morad. The King stressed Bahrain’s support to
our brothers in Palestine in their just struggle and congratulated
the four activists on their safe return to their country and families.
It is believed that the margin of freedom given to the civil society
has allowed human rights activists to become emotionally and practically
involved in humanitarian causes in general, especially at the Arab
and Islamic levels.
