يجوز أو لا يجوز، هذا هو السؤال

"The Muslim Brotherhood's position, put by one of its younger militants, Tariq Ramadan--who is, strangely enough, also an adviser to the British home secretary--can be summed up as follows: It is against Islamic principles to represent by imagery not only Muhammad but all the prophets of Islam; and the Muslim world is not used to laughing at religion. Both claims, however, are false."

Interesting article, worth reading

عندما استقبل الشيخ صباح الأحمد المهنئين، كان من بينهم رئيس الجمعية الكويتية لحقوق الانسان جاسم القطامي
القطامي هنأ الشيخ صباح ثم قال له "احنا كنا معارضة بس الحين بنصير موالاة" ليرد الشيخ صباح "حتى معارضتك موالاة." كان حوار دافئ ودمه خفيف

الأحداث السياسية الأخيرة في الكويت تتلخص في ثلاث كلمات


Say what??

Sounds like something Bush would say, only in English!!


بوش زعلان والنفط خلصان والحليب خربان

بوش زعلان من اعتماد أمريكا على "النفط الذي يأتي من مناطق غير مستقرة في العالم" ويريد البدائل، والخوف من هؤلاء القوم ان هم فكروا، قرروا، نفذوا
بالمناسبة ، قصيدة للمبدع أحمد مطر

منتهى الإيجاز

عوائد القادة
من عائد بيع الغاز
ونومهم للغرب باختيارهم، إن جاز
وسيرهم نحو العِدا
زحفاً على الأعجاز
تلك خفايا وضعِنا بمنتهى الإيجاز
وهذا اعلان بائس يثير الشفقة نتيجة "طناقر"عربية لا يمكن استمرار التعامل بها دولياً، حرام تجارنا تموع جبنتهم وتذوب زيدتهم ويحمض حليبهم...شوية عقلانية تحل الموضوع بشكل أهدئ وأرقى، ولكن


A picture is worth a thousand words

Arriving through my email, this picture brouhgt out all the Arabic nationalistic principles I grew up with and was religiously fed at school, however, these "calling for a stand" messages have lost all credibility . . . pictures are not worth a dime any more

What to do??


الحمدلله على السلامة يا كويت

وقفة وفاء للشيخ سعد العبدالله
ملعونة الأيام التي تضع مصائرنا في أيدي لا ترحم

والآن نعيد ونزيد

التصعيد يتصاعد

الحرة أعلنت للتو أن الخرافي ذهب لمقر الشيخ سعد العبدالله طالباً مقابلته وقوبل بالرفض

We are yet to have a leader

Browsing the internet for news-websites that would give me something more definite than “members of Al-Sabah family are pledging allegiance to Shaikh Sabah Al-Ahmad,” a piece of news that means nothing and yet could mean so much, I came across this silly site. It's called Araboo. Check it out. I recommend you go to Recreation and then to Dance and check the oriental dancing suits they have on the site for sale…horrendous!!

And, we remain leaderless, is this going to be over soon?



I was a kid of the 70s, I grew up only knowing him as a leader, as a symbol. He, somehow, personified Kuwait, or Kuwait was embodied by him. When I think of my beloved homeland, his image comes dashing, like a background to my visual thoughts and memories of Kuwait. And now he's gone, with all his astonishing accomplishments and somber mistakes.

He does not represent Kuwait now to the world, as political powers of the world are keen to find out who the next leader jumping into the chair will be and are already recalculting accounts and modefying plans.

Myself and, I believe, my generation will always feel that Kuwait is forever embodied in Jaber, I doubt I will ever look at any leader to come the same way I looked at Jaber Al-Ahmad, as a symbol who provided a sense of comfort and safety and stability, despite all that happened during his reign.

May he find peace and be immersed in God's mercy..
