The most dangerous parliament
The upcoming parliament due to be elected within a month will be one of the most dangerous assemblies ever elected in Kuwait’s history. Therefore, we must not take selecting its members lightly or in the same manner we used to do with all previous parliaments. It is a parliament seeking revenge, through which some candidates and political powers wish to move time backwards and to rebuild a temple they had destroyed according to their wishes because they believe that the temple is theirs and that no one has the right to share it with them.
They are not even driven by clearly defined national Kuwaiti agendas. They are the followers of suspicious foreign organizations that do not value nations and people’s interests. On the contrary, they are working to destroying nations and displace peoples, which was very clear in what the Muslim Brotherhood is doing in Egypt, what IS is doing in Iraq, Syria and Libya and what Iran is doing in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
We do not wish to make our country part of those violent, cruel and bloody scenes happening in other countries. We do not want our parliament to echo or voice the Muslim Brotherhood or Iran. We want to be a pure Kuwaiti one clear of sectarianism, doctrinism, tribalism and profiteering. Unfortunately, many of those preparing to run for the elections come with endless ideas of either this or that string-puller and are preparing for a war each party anticipates it will win, regardless of the possible consequent losses Kuwait and Kuwaitis might suffer.
For these reasons, and for so many other reasons we cannot mention, voters have full responsibility to maintain and protect Kuwait by denying such candidates access to the coming parliament, because they carry agendas that have been prepared by others and are flocking out of Kuwait’s mainstream. Such a demand is not too much nor does it include exaggerations. Fears are very real.
NGOs have to be fully active from now and till election day to enhance voters’ awareness about how dangerous the coming period and how critical the situation are. They should organize awareness seminars and reach people everywhere in all areas. Emotions, kinship and personal interests have to be put aside when selecting candidates.
