Our buddy #Bahrain is now referring a human rights activist, Nabeel Rajab, to the prosecutor for a tweet he posted!
Nicholas Kristof @NickKristof
The illegal tweet includes a photo that looks as if a dead prisoner was beaten. The govt says photo was doctored.
Nicholas Kristof @NickKristof
To me, the photos and videos of the torture on the dead man look authentic, and the Bahrain govt's credibility is zero.
Nicholas Kristof @NickKristof
In any case, is #Bahrain really saying that it will throw people in prison for their tweets? "Practicing Twitter without a license"?
Nicholas Kristof @NickKristof
With this crackdown, is there any moral difference between King Hamad of Bahrain and PM Ahmadinejad of Iran?

Government lying by saying I have fabricated the pictures but my crime is that I am showing the world their Crimes against humanity

Torture is wrong whether it's Americans doing it at Gitmo, Shiites doing it in Baghdad, or Sunnis doing it in Bahrain.
