    – There are poor sunnis as well as poor shias in Bahrain just like any other country in the world, including the USA.

    – The expats working in the Gulf were not kidnapped or brought in as slaves. If they, including the western,had job opportunities or better lives back in their countries would they have come out here and worked?
