Bahrain protest

I was delighted to see this vigil taking place in Bahrain where Muslim youth took to the streets condemning the terrorist attacks that happened in London, saying "Not in my name."

I personally hope a similar vigil can be organized in Jordan and across the Arab world, as it is a direct and courageous condemnation of such an atrocity. Who knows, this might turn out to be what Thomas Friedman is talking about in his recent column.

Make sure to read Chanad’s blog for more details.

Jordan vigil

Ameen has just alerted me that a smiliar vigil has already been held in Jordan. Here is the link. This has certainly put a smile on my face.
