Really who are these people that dress so richly?. They rule the little people with iron fist. They do not allow any interference in the business of the kingdom. Cousins, and Uncles by the dozens in charge of all the kingdom organization. So this means there is no loyalty in royalty. No trust to outsiders is permitted.

Do they think God himself called them to duty on earth?
Why would they live with such opulence while the rest of the kingdom’s people lives the simple life?
Certainly they look good for a fashion show. Just the money spend to protect them when they travel outside the palace will feed hundred families in “their” kingdom. Do they ever look down to earth as Buddha once did?

“Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al-Khalifa will come on Thursday to open two schools in Gaza City which have been funded by the Bahrain Royal Charity Organization,” a source close to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, said Tuesday.

There are rumors all over the internet about the visit of Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al-Khalifa to Gaza, but the Bahrain News Agency does not have any news relating to this high expected visit.

This is an Update, after all the Bahrain delegation did made it to Gaza, not the King’s son himself, but lower personal of the kingdom.

From the BNA Official News Outlet for the Kingdom.

Bahrain School in Gaza Opened
05 : 44 PM – 01/11/2012

Gaza, Nov. 1. (BNA) – A ceremony was held today in Tel Al Hawa area to mark the opening of the Bahrain School, one of the major development and humanitarian projects implemented by the Royal Charity Organisation (RCO) in Gaza Strip, in collaboration with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
The four-storey school, the largest of its kind in Gaza, consists of 52 classrooms and can accommodate up to 4000 students.
It is equipped with all educational facilities and includes a library, sports fields, a park, as well as scientific and computer laboratories.
It also has a classroom for students with learning difficulties, containing learning aids for students with special needs.

Also there are sworn statements that Prince Nasser committed torture: “In June 2012, the Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) urged British authorities to ban Nasser from entering the UK to attend the 2012 Summer Olympics in London as the president of the Bahrain Olympic Committee, due to the allegations of torture against him. In documents submitted to British authorities, the ECCHR described how Prince Nasser launched “a punitive campaign to repress Bahraini athletes who had demonstrated their support (for) the peaceful pro-democracy movement.” It said that following his directive “more than 150 professional athletes, coaches and referees were subjected to arbitrary arrests, night raids, detention, abuse and torture by electric cables and other means.”
I searched the Site and could not find the documents cited on Wikipedia and other outlets, maybe someone can direct me to the actual document. thx

Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al-Khalifa Charmain of the board of Trustees of the Royal Charity of Bahrain that was founded in 2001 to help Bahrain orphan children, later on in 2007 they implemented also help for widows and later on they broaden their help to other areas of charity.
We know that Bahrain does not enjoin of god reputation in this days, but for Gaza the visit of a high raking Royal could be good news, specially if they engage in charity works. Even if we reject the idea of charity, Gaza really is in dire conditions that can not turn down some help from outsiders.
Specially in these moments that it is being attacked by Israel, could be a respite from the stress. I do not think that Israel will want to injure a Royal personal of Bahrain. They do not have diplomatic relations since 2009, but rumors around says that the kingdom was ready to establish business relations with Israel.

On October 26, the Imam of the Grand Holy Mosque in Makkah, Dr. Shaikh Saleh Bin Mohammed Al Taleb called in his sermon on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha all the Muslims to fear God and remember the Day of punishment when they behold all those gatherings. He also called on fearing the return to His Almighty God, as well as calling on the whole world to bear their moral and legal responsibilities for the massacres, injustices and ongoing violations committed every day in Syrian and Palestine

He also called on fearing the return to His Almighty God, as well as calling on the whole world to bear their moral and legal responsibilities for the massacres, injustices and ongoing violations committed every day in Syrian and Palestine.

This visit could put Palestine in the map and to bring real changes, specially to Gaza that can not see the end of the siege.

Money it is good adviser, who knows if Bahrain kingdom make business with Israel as a condition to end the siege will turn the tables around.
Who say that money is not the wheel that moves the world? Off course we much prefer that Aid stops all together and real Trade begins as a way to let Gaza developed its own infrastructure and take advantage of its own resources.
The offshore Gaza natural gas found in 2005 could bring Gaza to be completely independent of any foreign aid. The UN could pack their bags and leave, UNRWA could be irrelevant in its role of bringer of charity products.

The next is a documentary on Bahrain Athletes. The simplicity of the mind of ordinary people throws light to the atrocities committed by the kingdom in the name of “Unity and Peace”. The love to the country of the athletes is not diminished by the iron fist of the kingdom.
