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

Central Bank rejects opening of Irani and Iraqi banks in Kuwait

According to Al-Rai newspaper, the Central of Bank of Kuwait has declined the applications of 5 Irani banks and one Iraqi bank to open up branches in Kuwait. The paper concludes that the most likely reason for rejection is the political instability in both countries, and how that would negatively affect local customers’ fortunes and monies in mentioned banks.

All I care about is thank god we’re not going into Arabian la2 Persian la2 Arabian la2 Persian Gulf dilemma again.
