Bahrain Government Destroying Shia Mosques


Source: AlJazeera.

I think it is important for everyone to keep informed about activities of unrest, especially in all the countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Libya is in the news everyday, but did you know that the Bahrain government has been destroying Shia Mosques/religious sites in Bahrain?

The government says that they are not legal mosques. Legal or not, they are religious sites for the Shia; tearing down one’s religious sites is certainly one way to inspire or increase unrest between people.

This is one of 3 reports from AlJazeera.

Why is it so hard for people to learn to live in harmony, with tolerance for differences and respect for one another?

It seems that many of today’s problems are due to the desire of many people and groups to impose their values and choices on everyone, as if there is only one right way to live.

Let me know your thoughts.
