Gulf states are not expected to face full-scale revolts thanks to a golden bargain under which their rulers trade a share of their oil wealth for political quiescence, but Bahrain is among the most vulnerable to popular pressure.
“There’s a deep sense of frustration among large segments of Bahraini society,” said Toby Jones, professor of Middle Eastern studies at U.S.-based Rutgers University.
“If there was one place in the Gulf that I was going to predict that there would be something similar (to Egypt), it would be Bahrain,” he said.
Bahrain is a small oil producer with a majority Shi’ite population that has long complained of discrimination by the ruling Sunni al-Khalifa family, well before popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt emboldened activists across the region.
Across their island country, Bahrainis sounded car horns and waved Egyptian flags on Friday night when news broke that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had stepped down.
The first protests in Bahrain since the events in Egypt and Tunisia unfolded are expected to take place on Monday.
King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, trying to defuse the tension, said he would give 1,000 dinars ($2,650) to each local family, and the government has indicated that it may free minors arrested under a security crackdown last year.
“I think it is no coincidence that the government has chosen this time to announce new grants to all Bahraini families,” said Jane Kinninmont, analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, who expected Mubarak’s fall to strengthen protesters in Bahrain.
Diplomats said the early concessions could blunt the scale of the protest.

Shia only holds 13% of the high official post in the country

Shia citizens are not allowed to work in the Bahraini Army

Shia citizens are not allowed to work in the intelligence agency

Shia citizens are not allowed to work in the in police force

Shia in Bahrain are not allowed to include their religious believes in the school curriculum

Shia attendance in the University of Bahrain is above 70% while the majority of them are unemployed as a specific policy of the government.

The government has made it so difficult for the Shia youth to live in Bahrain where they are forcing them to leave Bahrain to neighboring countries for employment.

There are 5 ministers out of 25 in the government cabinet.

The Shia mosques are neglected by the Bahraini government and it is almost impossible to get a permit to build a Shia mosque in the country.

Shia citizens cannot buy land or house in 48% of the country because the government refuses to allow Shia citizens to purchase land and houses on those areas; like East and West Riffa.

Shia are not allowed to study Islam according to their sect in the government schools.

Shia Friday sermons are completely neglected by the government media while Sunni sermons are aired live every Friday.

When it comes to religious program on the Television; Shia scholars are rarely invited and the government act if the Shia does not exist in the country.
Great argument for Secular Government.

They are legitimate questions that Bareed refuses to answer.

Why?

Islam is the official religion. Shi'a Islam is the prevailing branch, with over 80% of Bahrainis practicing Shi'a Islam. Roman Catholic and Protestant churches, as well as a tiny indigenous Jewish community, also exist in Bahrain.
Interesting.

I guess that explains why Sunni is concerned about what religion he is. He needs to decide whether to behave like a decent person or not. What a creepy little shit.
