  3. I would like to take this apportunity to Congratulate all the kuwaitis for the beginning of a new Era in their lifes nowadays. More progress toward an Islamic state(Taliban style).
    what we are witnessing today is a really SAD SAD situation. This is not the Kuwait that i knew and was raised in it, Unfortuantely.

  5. The messages posted by many, shows the extent of fear and hate bottled up in em. Again, I am not affiliated with any islamic organization, but why not try to tolerate it, or think of it as writing on the wall. After all we live in a semi-democratic Islamic society therefore, tolerance of others and their opinions is a must ( to a certain extent) in order for us to crystilize into a fully democratic society. y3ny el message mafeeha shay eykhawef its not telling you to strap a bomb around your waiste and explode it into a heavy foot traffic areas.

  6. Nobody is objecting to the actual words themselves.. but this amounts to "Islamist Graffiti" on public property. I mean they even took the trouble to get a calligrapher خطاط to do the job!

  7. I am an advocate of human rights and freedom, whatever they are, as long as they confirm to the law. In a sense that if one does a certain act he is 1)not breaking the law i.e. not physically or verbally, hurting or insulting another human being; 2) not damaging nor desecrating public property without a legal permit to do so. I disagree with Jashanmal about showing tolerance to such issues. Not only because the other party does not tolerate my liberal ideas, but because there is a fine line between tolerance and capitulation.
    I am willing to tolerate. I AM NOT willing however, to submit to this party, to its unlawful exercises, and surrender my convictions, my rights and my love, of and for, life and beauty. I will not be brain washed.
    Our Prophet said "Khair el o'moor aw9a6oha" and God said, through his Holy Book, "Lakoum deenakom w liya deen".

  8. جاشنمال ، يعني لو انا اقوم و أحط لوحات صغار عالطريق السريع و فيها شعارات مثل "عاش دستور 62" أو "حاربوا ظاهرة شراء الاصوات" أو غيره من اللوحات التي تعود بالنهاية لمصلحة الوطن ، و راسك ثاني يوم تلاقي البلدية شالعتها. و بالمقابل تشوف لوحات و كتابات خاصة بفئة معينة بدون ترخيص بعد و اللي في أمه خير يتكلم و يسأل ، هذه مرخصة؟
    يا جماعة توه واصلني مسج ظريف قلت أشارككم فيه:

    يوم عطيتوهم الجناسي
    غيرتوا الفكر و الأجناس
    عطيتوهم الجدر كله
    و خليتوا لأهلها الملاس

    يموت اليوم كويتي
    من ساس الأساس
    و يعيش من هدم طوفة السور
    و دفن كل الأساس

    و اليوم ليش طاح الفاس
    و طرت الأمثال بالراس
    أذكر اللي طاح بالجدر
    و ينشد فزعة الملاس

    ما أقول الا الله يرحمك يا علي بو حمد و يصبر أهلك على فرقاك. الله يرحمه نجا من جنود الاحتلال ايام الغزو لما كان بالمقاومة و آخرتها استشهد على يد هالأشكال اللي ما أدري من وين ياتنا!!

  15. Well... not exactly, Mosan. As an experiment, lets try and put up a message that said "Political Rights for Women" for example.. Yes it would be wrong and it is defacing public property but will it go unpunished like this one?

    no worries.. a lot worse has been said on this blog in the past. At least you're funny :-)

  18. الكتابة على المنشأت العامة هو نوع من الأرهاب يسمونة الأرهاب اللفظي. المقصود من الدعاء مو تدين و لا بطيخ. المقصود هو تذكير الداخل و الخارج من السوق "نحن هنا فدير بالك" نحن طبعا هم خلايا الإرهاب. يعني نوع من البلطجة و بسط النفوذ.

    شقول بس شقووول! جنستوهم بالآلاف و شصار؟ سوولهم دولة داخل دولة وقاموا يتعنفجون و يخالفون القانون على كيفهم و الحين إرهاب مسلح!

  19. Hey Zaydoun,

    Great blog. Just a pity that the Arabic parts completely escape me. Still, that is my fault, as a Westerner in Kuwait I should be making more of an effort. Changing the subject now... I live in MaK and had the opportunity to witness the local police force doing their thing this morning. They are doing a great job and deserve our respect. I have in the past been quick to make comments about the 'lazy police sleeping in their cars' etc. etc. etc. but being close to the action this morning has completely changed my view of local law enforcement. I have always felt extremely safe in this country and really do enjoy my time here (although I can't often have a quality glass of wine out of a bottle rather than a bladder, get totally ripped off by bookshops selling magazines for three times the price that they are in Europe and there are loads of pages missing.. ok deviating again, but you get my point...).

  20. Wildpink.. welcome aboard, it's refreshing to see expats who makes the effort to enjoy themselves here. Yes, life isn't easy for expats here but with a little effort and resourcefulness you'd be amazed what you can do..

    Unlike this miserable sod http://honeybearad.blogspot.com/

  21. Pretty neat 'vandalism' i'd say, ours normally consists of illegible scribbles:

  23. Hi Zaydoun, I've been reading all the comments here and there something which I don't understand, who are these people who were given nationality? I seem to recall that Kuwait has a hang on granting Kuwaiti nationalities even to the 'Bedoun' people who have at least traditionally been living there? Please excuse my ignorance, I tried looking up the subject but always came up that it was Kuwaiti Islamic militants ( obviously because they have a Kuwaiti jnssiyah) so can you please give me a briefing on this tajniss thingy ?

  24. You should provide a translation of the sign, not all of us are fluent with the Arabic language =)

    After reading the comment's here, i sort of figured out what was written, some extremist graffitti i guess.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Patrick.. long time no see. The grafitti is not so much extremist as it is just a simple prayer that does not belong on that transformer.

  26. First of all I would like to indicate that you are making a mountain out of a mole-hill! Seriously, it's a du3aa. Are you that scared? In the words of a wise woman I knew...." TAKE A CHILL PILL"

    Another explanation to why the religious words are on the blank spaces is that it prevents kids from writing profanity on these spots. The 3gaidy kid will think twice before he writes the "K" word or the "G7" word on a wall that has God's name on it. In brief, this is a stategy that has been implemented by the baladiya (municipality) to prevent people from defacing the walls with swear words!
    .....would you prefer profanities or something that reminds you of God?

    I personally choose the latter ;-)

    "Ala bi thikr allah ta6ma2in al quloob!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. The Baladia has no such policy; I don't know where you heard that.. unless you mean a policy of cowardice towards Islamist vandalism and defacing of public property!

    No I dont want to see profanities and thats not the point, I don't want to see prayers on transformers either, because they don't belong there written in black marker pens!!

  28. utterly discusting discusting to see such open enimity to Allah and his messenger PBUH by some commentators here
    If it said 2pac or metallica on the transformer i dont think it wouldve even mattered to some comentators here
    Read the ayat from 8 to 24 in surat al baqara
    get a sense of who you might be and try to correct that
