Report: Saudi Arabia Police Open Fire On Protesters

Gearing up for Friday’s “Day Of Rage" the Saudi Arabia  police are opening fire on unarmed protestors, which, unfortunately reflects badly on  the loved Saudi King and the Saudi regime and some will say this action suggests the regime is  in the same league with the tyrants and dictators in Libya and Iran, who rule by fear and money they have extorted from the people they rule over,  and  not understanding that people need more than money.

These dictatorial regimes and thugs in the Middle East have created this monstrous revolution that is spreading like a wild fire all over the Middle East all by themselves, and have no one else to blame but themselves. People are born with a yearning to be free, from God, and cannot be  forced to  live under oppression that crushes the spirit.
  • Jesus said "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.
  • And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
  • On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets". Matthew 22:37-40.
For a government to ban peaceful demostrations, and fire on unarmed protesters when people need to express themselves to petition their government  and have their voices heard is not a wise thing to do and will only cause anger that has been festering inside for God knows how long to burst into the rage the world is witnessing today in the Middle East and north Africa.

The Washington Post is reporting that witnesses are saying that the Saudi police opened fire Thursday to disperse a protest in the mainly Shiite east, leaving at least one man injured, as the government struggled to prevent a wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world from reaching the kingdom.

Police, who were lined up opposite the protesters, fired percussion bombs, followed by gunfire, causing the crowd to scatter, a witness said, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of government retaliation.

Despite the ban and a warning that security forces will act against them, protesters demanding the release of political prisoners took to the streets for a second day in the eastern city of Qatif. Several hundred protesters, some wearing face masks to avoid being identified, marched after dark asking for "Freedom for prisoners." Read More.

The message to the dictators through out the Middle East appears to have a common denominator.
  • "For most of us, it's not about money, it's about having a share in our government," said Mohammed al-Mansoori, a rights activist in the United Arab Emirates. "In other places people have dignity, here, people don't."
