العيب فيكم و في حبايبكم اعضاء مجلس الامة

Thanks to our Emir for restoring Elhaibah* to the royal family. And for reminding the family that their unity behind the constitution is what keeps Kuwait’s love and respect to the monarchy. Never for once I doubted that Shaikh Subah was well aware of what’s going on in the country; either directly within his immediate family or indirectly through his bigger family Kuwait. And I really hope that the members of the royal family whom have been causing such disturbance in the country had learned their lesson well, I’m sure Shaikh Subah will take harsher measures if such skirmishes persisted.

And someone should tell this guy to stop barking and to assume responsibility for the space of freedom that he enjoys. No one is against criticism, in the contrary; it is needed. But there is a big difference between constructive and directive criticism and pure heresy aimed at destructing people’s reputation. Yes; even the Emir respects criticism and considers it an advice because he knows the difference; this type of criticism is not new to him nor it is to kuwaitis. Our fathers and grandfathers had practiced it for years, and it is the bases upon which both the respective rulers and citizens communicated and united to build this country. But I advice this rented pen to know his limit and avoid testing our patience by mixing the concept of freedom of speech with personal insult, which will not be taken lightly; neither from the ruler, nor from us the citizens.

Our constitution had given us a space of freedom fit for our century; the basics on which it was built will remain to be our pride. And as the Emir said to the member of the family”العيب فيكم”, I’d say that not activating the articles that assures more space of freedom in the constitution is because of us, Kuwaiti citizins and not because of a shortcoming in the constitution. In other words;” العيب فينا و في حبايبنا اعضاءمجلس الامة”. And its time to straighten up our base by activating all articles of the constitution, then by upgrading it according to our years of hand-on experience, and in the direction that allows more freedom and not less.

It is also essential that the constitutional bills that highly contradict with constitution (like university gender segregation) be dropped. Those bills that were issued in the past in an unprecedented effort to paralyze the articles of the constitution are in dire violation to article 175, which states that any change or modification on the constitution have one vector component that points upward, towards a guarantee of more freedom and not less. Yes, there are articles in the constitution that need modification, but this modification is conditional. The constitution is one total set of laws that should be dealt with as one, unbreakable unit.

It’s time to seek a secular society. Aren’t you sick and tiered of the berdos who are controlling every aspect of our lives by misusing and manipulating our constitution? It’s time to let them know that religion has its own place, and it will be highly respected so long it knows its place and its limits. And mixing religion with politics would only result in Paella**.

*Elhaiba: an Arabic expression that means respect, or an awe mostly directed towards the elderly, wise members of the family. This expression was first used by Mohammad Aljasem to indicate that Shaikh Subah is the last of the sheikhs whom posses such qualities and traits which keeps Kuwaiti people’s respect and loyalty.

** There is an old story of how the Moorish kings’ servants created rice dishes by mixing the left-overs from royal banquets in large pots to take home. It is said by some that that word paella originates from the Arab word “baqiyah” meaning left-overs.

On a separate note:
I don’t know if anyone paid attention to this article that appeared on the first page of Alwatan newspaper, published on April14, 2007 issue!!!

First of all; who is قذائف القاعده? And where are they located; physically I mean? And who is Albathaly and what is his rank exactly in relation to this terrorist cell? It is obvious that this person is knowledgeable about the discrete activities of this terrorist’s cell, he might as well be one of them, or otherwise how does he know, how many youths volunteered to join this jihadic mission? Especially if the military training is secretive as he says. Away from government’s eyes. And is this training done in Kuwait? in which location? And where is the Interior Ministry?

Getting prepared for war and all its military training is not a gangster’s job, or else why do we have laws in civilized countries? It’s government’s duty to protect its citizen during peace and war, and it is definitely its duty to train them properly to do that. And not some opportunist whose aim and goal is much more than a simple self-defense as this so called political activist is trying to portray.

Anyone has any idea what is exactly going on?

    المهم أن نرى هناك تطبيق لتعليمات سمو الأمير .. و أن لا يتم الإلتفاف عليها و تبديل مضمونها من قبل المفسدين

    بالنسبه لقذائف القاعده .. أنا عن نفسي مطمئن .. فالقاعده متخصصه بقتل النساء و الأطفال و ليس الشباب أمثالي 🙂 .. لا تخترعين يا آيه .. تعودنا كل سنه يطلعون لنا بتصريحات و سوالف حق التخريع

    اكيد انتبهت لقذائف القاعدة واستغربت انه اسود واشبال الداخلية محد طرح الموضوع وجنه شيء مسلم …. تبين اذكرج بسالفة الاسلحة اللي لقوها ملفوفة بعناية ومحفوظة بطريقة فنية وباعداد كبيرة بالبر سنة 94 او 95 ؟
    حزتها اعلن جم واحد من الاسلاميين انها موجودة بهدف تعزيز قدرات المجاهدين بالبوسنة وبعثها لهم علشان جذيه الداخلية حفظت القضية !
    اكيد معتبرين السالفة نفس السالفة ومخلين الجماعة على راحتهم
    اما موضوع الفضل فاكيد اسلوبه رخيص مثله مثل الوشيحي و الدعيج … لكن انا بطبعي اتجمل الاسلوب علشان اطلع بمعلومة …
    وغالبا هالناس يمثلون راي جهات تبي توصل رسايل … فننطر ونشوف

    أعضاء مجلس الأمه يتغيرون كل 4 سنوات عن طريق الأنتخاب وهؤلاء الأعضاء ناتجين عن مخرجات الدوائر 25 سيئه الذكر

    طبعا تم تقليص هذة الدوائر الى 5 دوائر وبالتالى راح تتحسن مخرجات هذة الدوائر وان كنت أتمنى ان تصير الكويت دائرة واحدة نائب الأمه يمثل الأمه بأسرها وبالتالى ما راح ينشوف كثير من الظواهر السلبيه ونفتك من بعض النواب 😉

    Too bad, I may be leaving this place for good, who knows?

    Yes exactly; and I’m waiting to see his highness’ instructions being applied in reality.
    But how are you asking me not to be scared?
    ماكو دخان من غير نار

    I’ve been monitoring the news to see if anyone mentioned it, or even noticed it, but as you said; hardly anyone!!!
    Or except may be for Dr. Shamlan Alissah (click here) “ ماذا عن الإرهاب والحركات الإسلامية المتطرفة التي بدأت عملياتها الإرهابية الجديدة, ماذا أعددنا من دراسات وتصورات واحتمالات لبدء الارهاب في بلدنا? أم أن الحكومة تتصور بأن لجنة الوسطية في وزارة الأوقاف ستتصدى لهذه الظاهرة? الصحف المحلية وبعض الكتاب يشيرون الى وجود مواقع على الانترنت تدعو للتطوع للجهاد في العراق, كما ان احتفالا قد أقيم قبل ثلاثة اسابيع ترحيبا بالمجاهدين.
    هذه القضايا ذات الطابع المستقبلي لا أحد يتصدى لها, سمو رئيس الحكومة مشغول في قضايا الاصلاح واعداد الرد على ما طرحه ديوان المحاسبة ونواب المجلس لاهون باستجواب أبو رمية لوزير المالية, ولا يوجد لدينا, مع الأسف, مراكز متخصصة تحاول رصد كل المتغيرات في المنطقة وامداد المسؤولين بتصوراتها للحل, فالموجود مراكز دراسات ستراتيجية خاصة أفضلها مركز الدراسات الستراتيجية الكويتي للأخ سامي الفرج, ولا أتصور ان لديه الامكانات البشرية والمادية لمعالجة كل المشكلات, كفانا جلدا للذات ولنفكر بالمستقبل.

    And my question is
    ليش امخلين الجماعة على راحتهم؟

    This is the country’s security we are talking about. As a citizen; I for one، cannot take any other surprise that may shake my security. The awakening surprise at the verge of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait should have taught us Kuwaitis never to take the priority of our security lightly. And moreover not to believe empty assurances” like سحابة صيف“ when reality warns us. I would have expected to see at least some reaction, some questioning. Or may be, if I’m optimistic; some action from our Interior Decorator, or was it, Interior Ministry!!! (pun intended)
    And shouldn’t this issue take precedence in MP’s agendas?

    As for others you mentioned and squeezed Burakan’s name in between (شيطان), I would agree with all the above except for one name you squeezed in :p
    I love the guy,
    و ما ارضى عليه
    As I love you too 😀

    Soud; my dearest
    Although the five constituents is a big blow to many corrupt opportunists, yet it gives no assurances that the number of radical MP’s would be reduced. On the contrary; it may even increase. And this is what scars me. Those people know how to play the instrument of people’s sentiment. And I think liberals have to find a way to reach people, people are the most dangerous tools. They should not for once stop educating others of the dangers they will be facing in the future, if those Islamists got more power. And mind you; I’m not talking about the old guys; they have done their deeds,و كثر الله خيرهم but I’m talking about the youth of today
    فيهم البركه

    المقطع الثاني من عنوان البوست هو بيت القصيد
    فطبعا واحد مثل سعدون حماد يقول حق وزيرة الصحة إعرفي حجمك
    يجعلنا نقرأ السيرة الذاتية لمعالي الوزيرة وللأخ عضو المجلس … لنعرف الفرق بين الصين والطين

    وأيضا .. أريد الإشارة الى الهوشة بين جمال العمر وبين مسلم البراك والعدوة
    فقد قال جمال كلام بوزن الذهب

    ومجلس هيك وهيك
