Give Peace a Chance

Everyone is getting very sensitive and extreme in their opinions of the Bahraini situation.

But not all supporters of Bahraini protests are traitors or Shei3a, as in not all supporters of the Bahraini government are patriotic or heroes.

انا وحدة كويتية سنية، اتعاطف مع الشيعة البحرينيين لأني شاهدت المعاملة الظالمة لهم من البحرينيين السنة

انا ضد اغلاق الشوارع و اقتحام المدارس و الجامعات

انا ضد استخدام القوى حتى لو كانت من رصاص مطاط

انا ضد رفع أعلام أي شي غير البحرين

انا ضد دخول قوات درع الجزيرة “الخارجية”، لتوفير الدعم ضد المعارضة “الداخلية”… الموضوع بحريني بحت

انا ضد تراخي الحكومة البحرينية باحترام و تلبية مطالب الشيعة

و انا ضد تصعيد الأمور أو الاحتكام الى قوى خارجية من قبل المعارضة الشيعية

فوق هذا كله… ادعي ربي انه يحفظ البحرين الحبيبة من كل شر و يسهل امورها و يحفظها لنا و يحميها من العين و الحسد و العبث

As a Kuwaiti, I feel very thankful for our constitution that makes everyone have to respect me, no matter what my beliefs are and no matter who those people are.

Finally, after 50 years of having to be a little bit shameful every time I confess to respecting my constitution, I can finally hold my head up high and be loud and proud of it.

My constitution, no matter how upsetting it was for those blind government followers, is what gives me respect and is what’s saving Kuwait now from all of the political unrest that’s unravelling in both the Arab and Gulf worlds.

I go back to Bahrain…. I pray to God to save that beloved country, make it safe, and return it back to the friendly, lovable, sweet state that it was….

More importantly, I pray to God to keep it out of becoming a playground for regional tasfiyay 7isabat.

Ba7rain is a very dear part of us, and we as Kuwaitis never want to see it suffer in anyway whatsoever.

Haleema Bouland is on sexiest women list حليمة بولند من أحلى حريم العالم

Our own kuwaiti TV personality, Haleema Bouland, was named 96th sexiest women by Esquire magazine.

In case you’re wondering, Minka Kelly is the sexiest women alive. And before you ask, I have no clue who she is, even after googeling her.

Very hilarious Google translator

I tried Google’s translation service over a post of mine. This is what I got. I couldn’t stop myself from laughing:

Here is my original post:

Ghazi Al-Qusaibi in Kuwait’s heart الكويت لن تنسى غازي القصيبي

As most of you know by know, Dr. Ghazi Al-Qusaibi, has died yesterday morning. He was a Saudi politician, academic, ambassador, and minister. He also was a poet, an author, and a writer. More than he was one of Kuwait’s heros.

He was one of the first Arab writers to use his writing talents in the defence of Kuwait against the Iraqi Invasion in 1990. There isn’t a Kuwaiti that doesn’t know his famous patriotic Poem “أقسمت يا كويت”. It’s a very strong poem that came out during the 1st days of the invasion, at the most needed time. You can watch Al-Qusaibi recite it in the above video, that was taking in his 1st visit back to Kuwait after its liberation in 1991.

It makes me feel proud that we in Kuwait have not forgotten him, local Kuwaiti papers placed the news of his death and how big his loss is on their front page: Al-Jareeda, Al-Qabas, Al-Watan, and Al-Rai. Dr Al-Qusaibi did deserve to be on page one.

Another important community that remembered Al-Qusaibi, and paid him the respect he deserves, is the Kuwaiti blogging community. Some of the most highly followed bloggers wrote great things about the deceased: Frankom, Bait El-Grain, Bint Al-Shamiya, and ilsul6ana.

Kuwait is sad about the death of Dr. Ghazi, and he will always have a special place in our hearts.

اللهم ارحم غازي القصيبي

World’s largest clock started ticking, I’m so proud of Saudi Arabia

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I couldn’t be prouder of Saudi Arabia, even if you dare me to.

Saudi Arabia has built the world’s largest clock, the dial of which is 43×43 meters and is 5 times the dial of Big Ben, on what is to be the 2nd tallest building in the world (after Burj Khalifa).

The clock is located in Macca Al-Mokarrama, and overlooks the Holy Ka3ba. It can be seen from 3o kilometers away, and stands at a height of more than 500 meters (600+ upon completion).

Saudi Arabia started a 3 month trial run of the clock, and picked the 1st of Ramadan as the most perfect day to start the giant clock. I can’t describe this event better than MSNBC‘s commentary:

“Muslim pilgrims pray inside the Grand Mosque, with the Mecca Clock lit up in the background, on the first day of the fasting month of Ramadan in Mecca, Wednesday, Aug. 11. The giant clock on a skyscraper in Islam’s holiest city Mecca began ticking on Wednesday at the start of the fasting month of Ramadan, amid hopes by Saudi Arabia it will become the Muslim world’s official timekeeper.”

I’m so proud of Saudi Arabia.
