    Blessed your soul Tim Russert. Today Michigan Representative Mike Rogers, the chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in the House, made the biggest geographical gaff by confusing Iran with Saudi Arabia. Con. Rogers claimed “it is disturbing what Iran is doing in Bahrain.” Tim would have immediately caught this gaff by informing the congressman that it is Saudi Arabia that sent its forces to kill the Majority Shia of Bahrain and not Iran. Tim would have at least asked the Congressman to site an example of this “disturbing” thing about Iran’s involvement in Bahrain that Mr. Rogers neglected to elaborate on.

    It would be valuable for activists in solidarity with the democratic struggle in Bahrain to attempt to reach out to some local Christian churches who may be willing to listen to the story as it is a human rights issue. This would also be valuable in helping to build community understanding.
    It would also be valuable to try to reach out to trades union locals as this brings an element of political power to the protest.
