The counter-revolution in Bahrain

Source sent me this: "- After the 7 opposition group coalition released a statement supporting the National Union ending the strikes, Al Wefaq and Amal (smaller religious opposition group) said that they never called for an end to the strikes.  The rest of the opposition groups were silent.
- Yesterday, Waad published news on their website, twitter and facebook that Munira Fakhro's house was attacked by 5 molotov cocktails but that she wasn't in the house during the attack and her house suffered minimal damage.  Several Waad people confirmed.  Today, they publish a statement denying that they ever said that.
- News that Al Wefaq's website was hacked into.  Al Wefaq then releases a statement saying that no one hacked into their website.
- The Bahrain teachers union has now called for an end to the strikes
- 5 of the members of the upper house (appointed) in Bahrain who resigned last week in protest have now withdrawn their resignations.
What is going on? Honestly I have no idea but it looks like either someone is hacking into their website and accounts or someone is threatening them."
