Bahrain: An island kingdom in the Arabian Gulf where the Shia Muslim majority are ruled by a family from the Sunni minority. Where people fighting for democratic rights broke the barriers of fear, only to find themselves alone and crushed.

This is their story and Al Jazeera is their witness - the only TV journalists who remained to follow their journey of hope to the carnage that followed.

This is the Arab revolution that was abandoned by the Arabs, forsaken by the West and forgotten by the world.


In the 14th of last February people of Bahrain ,which is a tiny island in the Persian Gulf and a key U.S. alley, chose to go out to protest and march peacefully in Pearl (Lulu) Square in the capital Manama. People are demanding real reform and a constitutional monarchy as they voted for it 10 years ago the exact same day, and as promised by King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa afterwards.
Bahrain's ruling Khalifa dynasty are controlling every critical aspect in Bahrain .Prime minister and kingís uncle Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa has been in office for 40 years, and according to an official government document that has been just released, bought the Financial Harbor land for 1 Bahraini Dinar ,i.e., 2.6 dollars.
The regime used its police forces and military to suppress the Bahraini people. These forces consists largely of foreign mercenaries from Pakistan, Balochistan, Yemen, Syria, and Jordan given the Bahraini nationality as the Sunni ruling family donít trust the majority of its people which consists of 75% Shiite.

At least 7 people are killed and thousands are wounded using gas bombs, rubber bullets, fission bullets, and fire arms last month.

In the 16th of this month King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa declared a state of emergency to stop protests and called foreign armies from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries to prop up his regime. Now Bahrain is under invasion. Bahraini, Saudi, Emirati, Qatari, and Kuwaiti armies are taking control of Lulu square, suppressing protesters, kidnapping and killing people the all over the country.

We are facing total annihilation. People are killed in the streets by police, foreign thugs and armies, many are also missing . We cannot go outside our homes or we get shot by military helicopters, sounds of blasts are all over the country, police are using wounded people as traps to target more. We cannot go to Salmaniya Medical Complex which is the main hospital in Bahrain, it is seized by police and military and they are attacking wounded people, doctors, and paramedics. Many ambulances are stolen by foreign thugs packed by police, they take the wounded people to kill them. Now the army takes control of Salmaniya Medical Complex and appointed a colonel as a director and arrested many of the medical staff.

Police and armies are putting weapons inside ambulances and hospitals, they also crash cars attack schools, universities, and kill foreign workers and display these footages in the official TV as acts of the sectarian outlaw rioters. All of these brutal acts are documented by people shooting using their mobile phones, as foreign reporters are expelled from the country day after day to cover for this mass murders.

Saudi Army is taking control of Electricity Directorate and cutting it from certain areas to force us to kneel, while the regime is blocking many websites to shut us up.

People of Bahrain are appealing to help stopping these massacres. Please, let our voice and this appeal reach your friends, the media, the United Nations, your government , human rights activists and agencies, Bahrain and Saudi embassies in your country so that the blood shed might stop.
