Bahrain update

From chief Angry Arab Bahrain correspondent:  "Also did you hear that the foreign minister said that there will be a dialogue with the opposition soon with all options on the table? He said this really defensively on an AlJazeera interview saying that they are a legitimate regime.  I think Alaa AlShehabi is right in her tweets.  The report doesn't demand the release of the prisoners so that they can be used as a bargaining chip.  The problem is that if the opposition gives up on any one of their demands they will have lost because what they are demanding is the minimum that anyone will accept at that point.  The next few months will be really interesting.  We are back to square one.  Its as if the clock has been rewinded to february.
