It used to be just 9 that were blocked:
- Bahrain Online
- Montadayat al Bahrain
- Bahrain National Committee for Martyrs and Victims of Torture
Sarah al Watani
- Ahrar al Bahrain
- Bahrain Times
- Al Saheefa
and now, it appears that someone who is really shaking in his boots and deems it very necessary to protect us from ourselves and protect the country from those nefarious people hell bent on toppling the government has done the right thing™ and blocked…
- The Bahrain Centre for Human Rights website…
Well done! I am sure the blocking of these sites will contribute greatly to the country’s standing in the Freedom of the Press index, the Human Rights index (which Bahrain actually is on that council in the UN!!) and will also assist Shaikha Haya bint Rashed Al-Khalifa in her role as the PRESIDENT of the United Nations and gain her and Bahrain even more respect and credibility to continue to be in that role.
Of course, that brainfartist probably doesn’t know that it is becoming easier every day to unblock sites, no matter what their contents are.
But then one must ask the question… who’s next?
