Documentary: “Bahrain: Shouting in the Dark”

This is by far the best documentary I’ve seen on the uprising in Bahrain and the Saudi-backed regime’s counter-revolutionary onslaught.  It’s a little bit less than an hour but definitely worth your time. Qatar, an ally to the Saudi and Bahraini royal families, a member of the GCC, and home to al-Jazeera, the producer of the documentary, has come under pressure to remove the documentary. Al-Jazeera, which often succumbs to the dictates of the ruling al-Thani family’s foreign policy priorities, has minimized the coverage on the Bahraini uprising from early on, yet, this documentary is a bold step in finally giving the movement there its due, albeit belated, attention. See it here.
