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.
