Readers of the following text published verbatim by the Bahrain News Agency should keep in mind that Hamad al Kalifa is the King for life of Bahrain one of the seven GCC Gulf Cooperation Council States. Speaking for myself and nearly seven billion other citizens of the Earth, I wish to say that we are not all kings of our own little oil rich islands.
“We Are All Hamad” Campaign to Be Launched
Manama, April 30. (BNA) – A number of citizens and residents have launched a campaign via social media networks (twitter, Facebook, blackberry), blogs and websites as a show of fidelity and gratitude to His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
