HRW says “Put yourself in her shoes”

A house maid being beaten to death… maid suicides in Kuwait… Brutality… abuse… How many times have you read about such incidents in Kuwait? If you ask me, I’d say “Almost everyday”.

About The Case

Education.. what?

During the time our respectful – are they? – parliament members are fighting over Sunna-Shi’a issues in Islamic subjects, our children, brother & sisters are missing the “real” necessary education. I’m not saying the religious education is not necessary, it is! but it’s really important to provide a better “science-oriented” education. Comparing the Kuwaiti schools to America, Kuwait is definitely way beyond, but to show how important it is for Americans, and how frustrated they are because they fell into #20 in graduation rates. I wonder what is Kuwait’s rank?

Below, is a video I found on Vimeo, it literally describes the education crisis in America… the thing that exactly applies on Kuwait, taking into consideration that it is much much much worse in Kuwait. Watch it, and you’ll feel bad!

When a Minister gives a promise…

In an interview with Alqabas newspaper, the respectful Mr. Bader Al.Shuraian – Minister of Electricity in Kuwait promised that the ministry will deliver TWO NEW ELECTRICAL POWER STATIONS in 2011. I do believe in Mr. Bader… but I don’t believe in the government! Just to keep an eye, and not to forget… I have installed a countdown plugin in the right column which will count for a whole year, plus a bonus of extra 5 days :P

Will they be up to it?
