In the Daily News Egypt, Ron Kampeas writes that Bahrain “is softly encouraging the US-led push for democratization in the Middle East as the means toward stabilization.” In showcasing his country’s commitment to pluralism, last week in New York King Hamad bin Issa Al-Khalifa invited expatriate Jews to return home to Bahrain, and offered to allocate land for new homes. Adding to his recent philosemitic credentials, the king has also appointed Jews to high level government positions.
