This is in reply to Abu Mohammed's "No reaction" and "Shorty" from the real world's "letters are too long" (GDN, April 21).
Thank you dear son for your gracious words, it meant a great deal to me Abu Mohammed. People are complaining that I dominate the letters page, which is why I have not contributed lately. You must have read Shorty's letter, he puts extra emphasis on the Ums, Abus and Jim disregarding the rest of the writers whose letters are also long, but I find them informative and very interesting.
I appreciate your criticism Shorty, but sometimes points cannot be made in short paragraphs, especially when it involves the nonsense that is going on in Bahrain. The Arabic newspapers are covered beautifully by our intellectual local journalists on a daily basis. The GDN and I am really grateful that many expats (bless them) have supported us diligently and I thank each and every one of them; but we also need Bahrainis to write in to show the West and the embassies here, that the majority of Bahrainis are with the monarchy, and what the opposition are doing has nothing to do with reforms, democracy or respect; as was said on Al Jazeera TV on April 21, but regime change. As for Khalil Marzooq, member of the (disloyal) Al Wefaq, what he stated on the same day was a load of hogwash. They claimed they were peaceful but we all saw as clear as day, they were not!
What country in the world would take this violence for one year and nearly three months? None! So I beg the respectful members of the GDN staff, Shorty and others to make an exception for some letters to be a bit lengthy. I love to translate Mr Saeed Al Hamad's show for the readers. His information with the help of the authorities unravels the true colours of the opposition, but unfortunately the Iranians have been successful in blocking the station. It just goes to show that he is succeeding and making the opposition furious. They want the world to only believe their fabrications; which honest to God, makes my blood boil. So please forgive me for my lengthy letters.
