Crows and foxes
When we were young, we were taught a very nice and wonderful proverb, which was frightening at the same time, because it mainly depends on the concept of ‘tell me who your companions are and I will tell who you are’ (birds of a feather flock together). Through knowing your company, I assure you that I will know who you really are regardless of how hard you might try to hide. Thanks to the Almighty, I avoided bad company, but the terrifying part lies in the fear of our folks if they find that we have been keeping bad company.
I use this idiom very often, and through using it, I realize that many people seem to have nothing to do but criticize Information Minister and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Al-Humoud. It is obvious that those criticizing him are supporters of people who are eating their hearts out with envy on the success and achievements this man has made in ministries under his jurisdiction. Nobody can deny that he managed to take Kuwait’s shooting sport to international levels.
In the information ministry, he managed to achieve considerable success at Radio Kuwait and KTV after it became the true family channel showing decent programs. He also helped Kuwait win several awards at various Arab media conferences, the last of which was winning the lion’s share of 39 out of a total of 50 awards at the Cairo Mondial.
Those criticizers may not know what a lion’s share means, for which I cannot blame them, because they are nothing more than crows and foxes feeding on what is left from the lion’s prey. Therefore, I would like to tell them that knowing them reveals much about the caliber of those criticizing Abu Sabah!
Through knowing your company, I assure you that I will know who you really are
