    This letter is in response to the articles covering the civil unrest
    occurring in Bahrain.

    As a citizen of and believer in democracy, I applaud the efforts of the
    Bahraini people. Their efforts are similar to what is happening in Yemen
    and Algeria as well as the most recent revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia.

    Believe it or not, one thing that trumps capitalism and political
    correctness in the United States is the right to have one’s voice heard.
    This is the foundation of which our democracy is built on. The Bahraini
    people should continue to defy Sheikh Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa’s powerful
    security forces so that Bahraini democracy can begin to thrive. It is
    unfortunate that the United States compromised on one of its most
    fundamental values in order to protect its economic interests in the
    Middle East; something that happens all too often domestically as well.
    It is not the Bahraini people that are attempting to seize power but rather
    it is those currently in power who have engaged in intimidation to prevent
    the will of the people from being heard. Why else would they stoop to such
    underhanded tactics to block various means of communication among the
    citizens of Bahrain? Why is the government in power utilizing such
    political strong-arm tactics as the use of violence?

    Sheikh Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa, you have had twelve years to lead Bahrain
    and have failed them by your own choosing. The days of the despotic regime
    are finally coming to an end as it appears the desire for freedom will
    continue to sweep among the Arab nations. Accordingly, let the call go
    forth among all citizens of Bahrain that your brothers and sisters of
    democracy from all over the world are with you during every trial and
    tribulation you may encounter during this crisis. To the people of Bahrain,
    the trumpet of freedom beckons you to rise in protest and ensure your voice
    to preserve your sacred heritage, promote your children’s future and obtain
    the blessings of liberty we all cherish. Sheikh Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa,
    let the people go!
