Bahrain: Lines in Ink, Lines in the Sand

This comic by Josh Neufeld follows Mohammed and Sara, two young Bahraini editorial cartoonists who found themselves on opposite sides of Bahrain's short-lived Pearl Revolution. Neufeld met Mohammed and Sara at workshops he led while visiting the tiny Persian Gulf country on a U.S. State Department trip. Shortly after Josh became friends with both of them on Facebook, Bahrain underwent much turmoil in protests inspired by the Arab Spring.Neufeld documents their impressions of the events, through their words, experiences, and their own cartoons, which were published as events unfolded. This comic is also available in Persian.

Josh, Strong lines. Can't erase them from my thoughts. Very beautifully expressed.

Outstanding work, my friend, up to your usual high standards. This phenomenon is not quite the general thrust for Democracy it get painted as, is it? Each modern state has its own unique complexity and sectarian differences, as people on the ground will tell you, if we just bother to ask. mabruq habeebi.

Grazie and gracias, everybody. By the way, the Bassiouni committee (which is mentioned on p. 16) released its report the other day. You can find it here: http://files.bici.org.bh/BICIreportEN.pdf. And this is good NY Times piece about the report and its reception within Bahrain: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/22/world/middleeast/bahrain-nervously-awaits-revolt-reports-findings.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2
