The real tragedy from Bahrain's perspective is that there are real issues that need solving on all sides, but what's happening now is achieving nothing except undermining efforts to build trust, which the country desparately needs. Cooler heads are definitely needed, and some willingness to compromise/understand the position(s) of other sides.
Agree 100%, the Oppositions cooler heads are being silenced as days pass by due to the radicalization of the average Joe on the street.. in the same time the ultimate cool head in the opposition Mr. Ebrahim Sharif is jailed... while on the other hand the cool head of the reformers and their institutions are being systematically pushed a side and the crowne prince who represents the reformers and who many if not most see as the real solution for all this drama has been silenced as well.. which makes it a very dangerous situation and which is why tension is rising and the GP is being brought into doubt.
Whats happening right now is the street pressure on the government, putting direct pressures on the hardliners within the royal family which has been in control since march 16.. when they lose their credibility in the “majlis” of the royal family i.e their crackdown security solution didnt work.. only then we can expect the crowne prince and his reformers wing to be given more authorization to deal with the opposition.. which is what the opposition are working on.. with him.. in the background.
We can only hope for the best.
