What good does this do if the lands have already been giving out, it doesn’t mention any of those priceless plot will be giving back to the citizens.

hooray they protected 13km of coastline in God knows where; and pretend it’s a victory. So they have no recollection that they are the ones directly responsible for giving away the other 621km of coastline. Our government (royal family) sure has a way of putting a spin on things.Coastal clampdown hailed

Pearl of gulf i believe the king is trying to fix things up for the future however what happened in the past is not that easy to be fixed or claimed. so we should have faith in our king and what he's trying to do for the country since he took it over as well as the crown prince who is always trying to fight for the benefit of bahrain.. i have known many stories happened which i can't talk about in here but it just shows that he is really fighting in the sake of the good for bahrain. as you can see in the forum you have linked previously, people are just talking not because they really care, it just firing things up... just go down and read the way the conversation is going.Pearl of the Gulf said:as someone in that forum said a plot of land for every bahraini, while the coast is for ONE family.

ما الذي حدث في البحرين؟ وما هذا التناقض الغريب.. والرهيب الذي نعيشه؟ بلاد (البحرين)، هذه الجزر التي تحيطها مياه البحر باتت بلا شواطئ معتبرة!! هل صحونا من غفلتنا فجأة لنجد أنفسنا في هذا الوضع؟ أم كنا نعايش المشكلة وهي تتفاقم مرحلة بعد مرحلة من دون أن نخجل من أنفسنا ونتخذ التدابير العلاجية للحفاظ على البقية الباقية من السواحل.. ومن ماء الوجه أمام السياح والوافدين الذين يسألون بعفوية: أين هي شواطئ جزيرتكم؟
المسئولون مازالوا يتغنون بالمأسوف على عمره (بلاج الجزائر)، وهذا الأخير ما هو إلا ركامٌ من حطامٍ خلّفته السنون، وأفرزته كرة الوعود منذ عقود، ليبقى هذا الساحل اليتيم يئن ويتأوه رغم رتوش ومساحيق التجميل الرخيصة التي يُلطّخ بها أحيانا. 4% فقط!! 625 كيلومترا تقريبا هو طول سواحل البحرين، ولا تتجاوز السواحل العامة منها أكثر من 26 كيلومترا، بما يعادل حوالي 4% فقط!! وبعض الدراسات تؤكد أن النسبة لا تتجاوز 3%!
