After I had posted my last entry, I saw that Broadsheet.ie had posted an item about the Anonymous hacking of the official Formula 1 website in the run-up to this weekend's race. Broadsheet is one of my favourite Irish websites; it posts quite random items, links and commentary with a distinctively satirical and irreverent take on current events which can veer from the hilariously profane to the sublime. But when the moment is right, Broadsheet can be bitingly accurate and it makes tremendous use of its freedom as a social media platform. I have huge respect for its integrity.
So after reading the item on Bahrain this evening, I took the opportunity to contact them and write a little about Abdulhadi's connections to Ireland. I didn't expect them to post my email verbatim, but am sincerely delighted to be featured on their illustrious pages while much more importantly, gaining any further attention for Abdulhadi and Bahrain on this critical weekend.
