Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

KUWAIT: MP Ab­dul­lah Al-Tamimi highly com­mended the ef­forts ex­erted by the In­te­rior Min­istry and state se­cu­rity agents in seiz­ing what he de­scribed as ‘IS weapons,’ de­scrib­ing th­ese weapons as a drop in an ocean of un­lim­ited sup­port some lo­cal blocs have been pro­vid­ing to this ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion. Ad­dress­ing Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and In­te­rior Min­is­ter Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Al-Khaled AlSabah, Tamimi urged him to ar­rest “IS bosses” in Kuwait, not­ing that he knows them very well. “If you do not, US re­ports and re­ports by other coun­tries prob­ing ter­ror­ism have clearly said who IS supporters in Kuwait are,” he un­der­lined, warn­ing that wait­ing longer might help IS to start of­fi­cially op­er­at­ing from Kuwait af­ter it de­stroyed some other Arab coun­tries “only to serve Zion­ist agen­das.” “History will never for­give you if IS man­ages to pose more threats like that of the pre­vi­ous bomb­ing,” Tamimi added, not­ing that the very same peo­ple who had been fund­ing and hir­ing ter­ror­ists from all over the world to de­stroy cer­tain coun­tries would be do­ing the same thing in Kuwait. “In­ter­na­tional ter­ror­ism pro­pa­gan­dists and fun­ders are Kuwaitis and the whole world knows them,” he claimed, call­ing for us­ing an “iron se­cu­rity fist” against ter­ror­ists. “IS fun­ders in Kuwait are not those ar­rested. Those are only in­signif­i­cant fol­low­ers and tools used by IS lead­ers, those who ap­pear ev­ery now and then on var­i­ous so­cial me­dia threat­en­ing and ex­press­ing sup­port of IS,”Tamimi con­cluded.

Do­mes­tic helpers

MP Ab­dul­hameed Dashti re­cently urged the in­te­rior min­is­ter to act and stop what he de­scribed as the “greed of the do­mes­tic la­bor of­fices’ mafia,” not­ing that they have be­come greedy de­spite pass­ing a law to reg­u­late do­mes­tic la­bor and es­tab­lish­ing a spe­cial com­pany to hire them. “We urge the In­te­rior Min­istry to com­plete this com­pany’s ex­ec­u­tive char­ter as soon as pos­si­ble,” he un­der­lined, point­ing out that some of­fices have been de­mand­ing hir­ing fees reach­ing KD 1,500 per worker al­though the ac­tual cost is not more than KD 300.
