Let the world know!
Ever wondered the SOURCE of falsified & sensationalized stories about Bahrain that’s published in major international media and organizations?
Yes, its Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) and its “Human Rights Defenders” led by notorious serpent Nabeel Rajab.The organization already known for its sectarian bias reporting and a very big question mark on credibility of its “President” Nabeel.An excerpt from Wikileaks on Nabeel’s credibility with the US State Dept.
Recently, his preposterous lies reached new heights when he reported “NEW GAS” or “NERVE GAS” been used by the Police on “PEACEFUL” protesters..
Followed by posts claiming numerous protesters were SUFFERING from this “NEW GAS” that leaves white residues on contact..
Undoubtedly , the credit should be given to THESE protester “ACTORS” for giving such a stupendous performance… that competes with Oscar Nominees.
Now heres the best part..Watch the below video.. specially 0.07 – 0.09 sec.
Bravo to those actors for giving such a performance.. Unfortunately or Fortunately, the camera man even shot the clip where a person splashing the white chalk liquid on to the face.. AND also the second person whose palm is completely covered with that liquid..
[Appended 05-04-2011] To all the confused Nabeel Rajab fans : The question is NOT about the liquid used by the protesters to quell the tear gas effect BUT the fact on HOW Nabeel Rajab sensationalized the story to international media into believing, a “NEW GAS” type is used by the police that leaves such residue on the body! I don’t think further explanation or classroom lectures needed to understand this simple fact..
All these proves how these “peaceful” protesters and the provocateurs like Nabeel Rajab used the media to justify their thuggery and crimes..
Its my humble request from ALL media and organizations to disassociate themselves from these PHONY HUMAN RIGHTS “DEFENDERS” in order to maintain honor and credibility of their organization.
