SHAME ON YOU
I wanted to post a few things today regarding what happened in the last 2 days but after reading today's AL-Watan Paper I was quite shocked at there attempts to demean those who work hard for what they believe in! God only knows that the people at that paper are just as corrupt as The Government!

What makes me say that, well it's not that the paper is always against what's good for this country but it's the way they show others! What do I mean by that? The paper lives for making our society look bad and helps anyone who's corrupt in order to get more money! They can talk about our movement and put it to shame all they want but everyone knows that it's a bunch of BS! Today's paper wasn't the first one I laughed at the pettiness of the writers, who probably only have a High School degree, but it was an article on the last page that had faulty info and the following pictures:











It's not these poor souls' fault that they were asleep! It's not their fault the temperature in the room was freezing and just made people pass out. The paper mentioned that there were people asleep since the beginning of the meeting which was untrue! People started sleeping at noonish when there were hardly any arguments going along and everything was quite where PM members each said their own thoughts regarding the issue at hand! The following quote was the only pieces of truth in this article, " الليلة الساخنة التي قضوها خارج المجلس"! For those who don't read Arabic, it said "The hot night that they spent outside the Council!" Even this sentence wasn't fully true because the organizers of the night before planned everything out properly to the point that they had large fans with the built in water hose to keep the weather cool! The only reason the night was HOT was because of the people and their attitude towards a better Kuwait!

I will stop here and calm down and send a formal apology to those who were photographed during a meeting between a corupt government that should be over-thrown and PM members who are actually doing the right thing!

I'm sorry you guys for what this paper has done but please don't let it decrease your morale. Keep up the good work and fight for a better Kuwait! Allah ya36eekom Alf 3afya! Ma Ga9artaw! Alla Ikathir Min Amthalkom!

    Diigmaa: Thanks for your comment, and as far as this paper is concerned it's the definition of Yellow Journalism and to be honest it was expected that they would do this cause it's highly funded by the shitty Government we have now, but like you said they shouldn't have stooped this low!

    Attacking young, hardworking, consciencious people who care about their country is abysmal.

    Time to cancel those subscriptions.

    I am shocked to see this......the paper showed no press manners...how can they publish those picz without permission?

    Amer: so true! We should all start subscribing to Al-Qabas!

    Q8 Tech Drive: Welcome to Kuwait! That's what they do here! They plagerise (sp), copy, and print things without permission!

    Sty: I'm so with you! It's guys/girls like them who will eventually change the way this country thinks and inshallah make it a better place!

    salam 3alaykoum

    As a devout Kuwaiti royalist, I was disguisted by the mass mob congregating outside parliament on Sunday. As I passed by these crowds, I could not help but sneer in disdain to obvious traitors! what kind of people perch themselves on the upper gallery of parliament hissing, shouting and screaming down on our blessed government like a bunch of insane, nauseating adolescents I ask you!

    I implore our people to exercise restraint and join the royalist agenda which I have advocated for years. I am in the process of passing a bill that will finally ascribe divine status to our noble ruling family for all the great deeds they have done in our nation. Also, I suggest we prostrate and give sacrifice to these great reformers. May god bless them dinya oh aaakhra inshala

    our people should be ashamed of themselves!!!

    salam

    ay 9ij habbibi? hathola khawana! this is not a way to make yourself heard at all. political issues should be discussed between parlimentarians and the government, or at least that is how it works in civilised societies. 3ayal ish7aga mintakhbeenhom 3ayal? I have never heard of a world parliament that allows the public to break in and disrupt proceedings during a vote. These traitors should be sent to prison sara7a

    newspapers in kuwait are one of the most outspoken ones...that shows a country's affinity towards free press system. But some people are misuing it...recently that guy talked about the burgan oil field comment.....i felt so bad when he said that...

    Anonymous: I'm not going to reply to your comment due to the fact thatg it seems like you don't know what actually happened nor do you know anything about democracy, freedom of speech and human rights!

    Q8 Tech Drive: Eveyr newspaper in Kuwait belongs to a specific faction or group, so each paper has it's own way of showing an issue in the way they want it to be seen! It happens all over! As for "free press" I don't think that happens here in Kuwait! People would pay for such articles to be published, especially the articles that go into the Al-Watan paper!

    The media is *evil*...they twist things according to thir own needs...I learned this terrible lesson from some of my demonstrations / protests in the US.

    The demonstrators have been working AROUND the clock. The way I see it, I applaude these demonstrators for staying at Parliament and refusing to give up their physical place because they got sleepy. That is the meaning of TRUE dedication!

    If we did not have this type of dedication and passion among Kuwaitis, the country would collapse!

    Once again, I applaude these demonstrators and admire them.

    I am sorry, but I fail to see how democracy come into play here. Protesting outside parliament is one thing, but for the public to enter and disrupt the democratic process in front of our elected members is disgraceful! laish ma inkhali9 nafsna min hal niwaaab 3ayal? and let any fool who walks in parliament do what he/she wants? protesting is ok if it is conducted in a civilized, controlled environment..mooo "hishik bishik" democracy

    It seems like someone *cough*anonymous*cough* needs to read up on their social movement history...

    Anonymous: Everything was fine inside the parliment building! If your Government wasn't so currupt then the PM members (nuwab) would not have gone against them! BTW it was the PM members (nuwab) who started the disruption inside when he Government proved that they were doing something wrong! Again, I have to say, you need to get your facts straight sinc eyou don't know what realy happened! Seems like you read the Al-Watan paper and see things in a single prospective!

    Caff: Anonymous reminds me of the guy who was driving into the parking lot during Sunday's gathering asking if we had a Tar5ee9 to hold the actual event! The guy didn't even know his rights! Maskeen!

    that dude in picture #7 is wack

    anyway

    Anonymous
    i don't know if you are joke'ing or not but what is this

    " divine status to our noble ruling family for all the great deeds they have done in our nation"

    are you sane ? Divine status ??!
    What great Deeds ? remmber for every good deed you will find there are thousand other bad deeds they did and everyone who knows history and isn't blind knows it

    like what happened in 1990 , yes some would say the past amir ( may good have mercy on him ) has helped return our country to us but he is also to blame for why we lost it and not to mention the disorganzation at the start of it which lasted till the end
    remmber That most countries at first said that the ruling family shouldn't return ( stated by france ) but the people came to jeddah and renew their confedence in them , thats why majlis was brought back ( the one that was dissolved in 1986 and didn't retun later )

    and much more

    anonymous,
    the ruling family 3ala 3aina ow 3ala raasna. But when they break the law and make decisions against the desires of the kuwaiti public thats when we have to stand up for ourselves in any and every way.

    Nobody deserves divine status except for God.

    most great revolutions in the past do not involve the public storming parliament and shouting down on MP'S! Neither the bolshevik revolution, french revolution or the orange revolution revolution in the Ukraine was like that. Again, I think protesting is great if it is conducted outside in an orderly manner. I don't want the public disrupting proceedings since this shows an utter disrespect for democracy. What is to stop this from happening again?

    So what if MP'S and the Government fight amongst themselves?!? this is how democracy works in every country, but what insanity permits the public to physicaly engage in this fight in parliament as well?

    Anonymous: You have a fundamental preliminary flaw in your argument: Your usage of the word "great" is both non-quantifiable and normative. Weak.

     
  • At May 17, 2006 11:31 PM, Blogger The Stallion said…

    Forzaq8: All those pictured who are not wearing dishdashas didn't have a good night's sleep, if any sleep at all, before the meeting! As for everything else you said to reply to Anonymous, I'm with you!

    J: Welcome to my blog and your words are true! Thank you!

    Anonymous: Again, I have to say that you don't know the facts! There must be something wrong with a person who keeps stating the same wrong information! Get your facts right! You are not only wasting your time, but you are wasting the time of other readers as well cause you keep repeating the meaning behind your words and that meaning is based on false info!

    Caff: Here, here! So true!

    "great" refers to those nations with a mature democratic tradition than Kuwait such as Great Britain and France. In all my years not one MP invites barbaric hordes from his/her constituency to wave flags, hiss and shout during a vote. However, quite the opposite occured here in Kuwait! I admire the idealist exuberance of our youth, but they have to express themselves with maturity and civility instead of what I saw in the newspapers.

     
  • At May 18, 2006 6:15 AM, Blogger Caffeinated said…

    Anonymous: We understand what "great" means to YOU. That perspective was made clear to us in your first argument. Your flaws remain recklessly intact, as you have not engaged with your subjective assumptions.

    Anonymous: I don't know if you are the same Anonymous person from the previous comments or not but if you are then as I said before, it seems like you only read the Al-Watan paper! That paper is so anti democracy and anti change! The government runs it and that only shows you the governments corruption!

    Caff: Thanks for being supportive!

    taboon il sij...the truth is Kuwait is a young nation and the citizens can not really sustain the concept of democracy. Everyone is so stooped in either tradition, religion or tribalism that they can not comprehend the mechanism of shared political power.

    What is unfortunate is that our youth only absorb the militant aspects of democracy such as protesting and social disobedience which shows how shallow they really are!

    Therefore, Kuwait needs a more involved and active monarchy to keep our citizens in check sara7a.

    Anonymous: You have the right to your opinion but if you want to know the truth it seems to me like your mindset is that of a dinosaur thinker! You fear change and you would rather live with corruption! I can compare your way of thinking to that of a governmental employee who would say that he has a job just to get a paycheck everymonth and not do anything nor does he do anywork! All that employee does is sit on his behind and do nothing but complain and give hard working people a hard time!

    In defense of myself and my fellow employees at the ministry I have to respectfuly disagree. Yesterday we managed to gather the energy to print out a word document on our new laserjet printer. I thught it was a great collabrative effort on our part worthy of promotion.
