Bahrain: Internal Conflict
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday September 7, 2010

I'm Predicting:

Bahrain has been cracking down on their Shiite population.

The tiny archipelago country of 32 islands may be ruled by Sunnis, but Bahrain has a Shiite majority. The ruling leadership has even made it illegal for any media to cover Bahrain's Shiite power play.

The Shiites are doing their best to try to slowly gain momentum and possibly, oust the current leadership. But if they push too hard -the Sunni leadership will crush the Shiite opposition.

Sunni leadership in Bahrain has very close relations with the US and the West. The Shiites want to expand relations with Iran.

I do not see a serious uprising on the horizon. But I do see the Shiites of Bahrain gaining more and more popularity.
