A few days back I happened to know about Kuwait Fund which is working a lot to help people abroad and was happy to hear about it. But then a thought came to mind that charity begins at home. And for Kuwait I think it should begin with the people leaving in Kuwait. I guess the present Kuwait is doing a great job in taking care of the Kuwaiti citizens but the non Kuwaiti citizen's r being ignored completely.
I am trying to delay my message to the higher authorities of Kuwait about the problems faced by the people living in the state. I don't want any feedback in respond to this letter, just actions. I am not sure whether this is the first time of this type a letter being written to you. But for me this is my first attempt. I am here to discuss the various problems being faced by the expiates in Kuwait. I know my this letter is going to b like a needle in a hay stake, but there is a hope that may be someone will feel this needle. Without wasting anytime I will directly jump on them.
Pakistani Visas: For quiet a long time visas for Pakistanis have been closed, for certain reasons. But respected authority holders by doing so cruelty is being done on many parents, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives and even children living in Kuwait, many of whose relatives also spent their whole lives in Kuwait, and due to certain reasons their visas expired and are now not allowed to enter Kuwait. Many of these victims are young students gone abroad for higher education.
Respected authorities I agree that prevention is the best medicine, but there has to be some space for filtration too. By closing all doors and windows you may prevent germs from entering the room, but along with it oxygen is also prevented. The best way is to filter air. In real life I request to permit visas to all the youngsters gone for education and to families. For prevention take interviews of the sponsors and the requesters.
For satisfaction check the character records etc. Trust me there are many innocent families suffering due to this law. If you want to prevent, stop the illerate working bachelors who bring drugs along With them from entering the state.
Education: This is the most important issue especially in the today's world. This is the problem of all the expiates and is being ignored for many years. The education till higher school is available in Kuwait but what after that??? There is a University in Kuwait, but for Kuwaitis only.
Believe me people outside Kuwait, even people of less developed countries get very surprised, when they are told that a rich and prosperous country like Kuwait has no satisfying higher education system for the expiates. There are many expiate students who would like to continue their education by staying with their families and home (in Kuwait) but are not given such opportunity. Kuwait you have money and can easily hire the best facility and teachers from abroad at any time. And there are students willing to get admitted too any time. I request to open the Kuwait University for all. Believe me open the admission from today and you will find many students willing to even get their credit hours transfer here. By January u can build a whole new world of education at Kuwait University.
And that day might not be far when Kuwait University might the top university and different science inventory be generated from Here.
Equality and Nationality: Another important topic is the rejection of giving Kuwaiti nationality. Now in Kuwait there are many people from different countries being seen, many of them have spent most of their lives in Kuwait and think of Kuwait as their motherland. Don't you think it is unjust that after spending 10-20 years, still they are not permitted Kuwaiti nationality? If seen around the world all the prosperous countries like US, UK and Canada do this, even less developing countries also do this. Then why a rich, propose and an "Islamic" country like Kuwait won't accept expiates. I think all rich, propose and "Islamic" countries shouldn't have any objection on it. When unislamic counties don't distinguish between color, region or religion, then why should an "Islamic" country??
Only expensive shopping malls is not a developed country's signature there is more to it too. Like equality!. At present in Kuwait there are differences in law of health, education, property owning for the Kuwaiti nationality and the expiates. The present rule of Kuwait teaches its new generation only to discriminate and inequality, which I think is not correct.
I think people who have spent more then 5 years in Kuwait should be given Kuwaiti nationality and the difference in the rule in the state should be abolished as soon as possible.
The maids and less educated labors are not taken good care of, with less money paid and lot of hard work taken from them.
Tension at Border: This topic is related directly to Kuwait's safety, as by now it must be clear that I am an expiate, who has lived all her life in Kuwait, but I am concern with Kuwait's future. 1990 was a bad year for Kuwait, but now this is the past and it can't be changed but the future can be changed. Right now I don't see Kuwait's future as bright as it should have been with all the economic tensions and tax issues. All this is due to tension with Iraq. The future can only be changed by forgetting the pains and anger, and forwarding a hand of friendship towards Iraq. The present situation will do no good to any one but will worsen the situation, as it was been since 1990. This is a very difficult job, but I think should be done for the best of the economy, safety and future of Kuwait. I think this is where the Holy Hadith fits that the most powerful is that who forgive the others.
All the respected ministers, authority holders and the readers, the purpose of this letter is not to offense anyone or to humiliate but only to speak up what has been bothering me and many other people living in the state under your supervisions. I know many people will object on it or this letter might never be even shown up, but I thought that I do my duty, by telling the truth of what I think is bothering some people and what should be done about it.
I know I am not one of the true Muslims as in the past and neither are the leaders and heads of Kuwait like the Caliphs in the past, but I know one thing that you and I are Muslims, and we have the education of the Holy Quran and Hadith. Thus I see a ray of hope that you might understand. I request that today you stay back for work to find solutions to the problems and within a day or two solve them out. If tried the solutions can be found in a day even. By pending them nothing will happen. I know for many all this is nonsense, and waste of time, for others impossible, but for some it might be the right thing. Remember truth is never sweet. The expiates have waited a lot already .I think now its time to do something about it, so that the coming years can be problem free for them.
May Allah help you all in making the right decision Amen.
In case any ones feeling has been hurt I am sorry for that.
Thank you for listening to me. Praying that may be you will show courage in solving this problem as I have with showing the problems, plz do something
FAST!

To: arabtimes@aol.com
 

In the name of Almighty Allah,most merciful,most beneficial...
Dear usama Fawzi,
I'm a proud reader of arabtimes newspaper,i always respected your ideas and honest opinions,however animals like our rulers do piss the hell out of me,they humiliated islam,and honored kuffars,the enemies of Allah,people who rose up against them were simply killed,their only sin was to say the Allah is one and only and Our most honored prophet Mohammad(peace be upon him) is his most beloved prophet of all...
i read your article about the mama rania's hijab issue,when i read it, i was thinking to myself:"these kafir rulers not only they blew off the light of islam on earth,but now are they even trying to change the rules of islam??"...
I want to please get some answers from her perverted so-called majesty, why are you getting answers and comebacks to support your opinion about hijab from a demon-possessed man??In case if the news i heard is true, then i hope from almighty Allah to contain both of you(and your midget husband)in the bottom depths of hellfire,may Allah curse you...
Your of palestinian Blood,and yet did you raise a finger to help your muslim brothers and sisters in palestine or afghanistan??Did you forget that you married to the son a freemason tyrant??Please learn first to cover your ass away from public magazines before giving any ideas about hijab nor islam,may curse you and your husband and all of out traitor rulers inshallah...
You don't know hijab is a Fard??in your letter you said that there is no need of Sunna and the opinion of scholars as long as we Carry the great quran!!so from where then do you get to know the Asr and Duhr and ishaa prayer are four times a day??from the mohammad's(peace be upon him)sunna or from matar khalifa??(i hope that you know the prayers are fard too!!)...
I hope from Usama fawza to continue his "flaming" words against the animalistic so-called royal family of Jordan,and not to get soft on them ever...
from me,and from every sincere muslim on this earth,i wish if you were infront of me so that i can spit and step over your face,and i wish if your midget husband is infront of me so that i can slice his ugly head off... Mr. Usama fawzi publish my letter and fear no one but Almighty Allah,and may Allah burn the light of islam on earth stronger and eliminate our dectator unjust tyrants soon and may allah spread the religion of our beloved prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) wider on earth.
Ameen O' Almighty Allah...
My last advice to mama rania,hope you repent inshallah and redeem yourself infront of your creator Almighty Allah,its not late,Allah's mercy is much too larger than anything...
If you don't,then i hope from Almighty Allah to pour His wrath on you and on every enemy of islam like you and contain you in the blazing hellfire,your perverted majesty...
Thanks for Dr. usama fawzi for making his website possible,and to let his muslim brothers from all over the world to unite against every enemy of islam...
Salam allykum...

Greetings to Arabtimes,
Arabtimes never mentions a positive thing about Yasser Arafat and his leaders in the authority. Why dont you wirte about the weapons deal between Iran and Palestian Authority??
Who has enough money to purchase 50 tonnes of weapons??
Who has enough money to purchase these weapons more than one time??
Who has the power in trying to blow up Daymona nuclear reactor in israel??
So please before judging who is Yasser Arafat please take ALL FACTS into consideration...
All what he is doing infront of TV is politics and politics is all acting. Take the other side of him...his real side...
My best regards goes to Osama Fawzi for trying to reveal the truth.

 
Subj: Arrest Of Fahd Rimawi

The Editor-in-Chief of Al-Majd Weekly Arrested
+ Please Forward
Amman, Sunday, January 13, 2002
This mourning, the well-known journalist Mr. Fahd Al-Rimawi, the Editor-in-Chief of the weekly progressive newspaper "Al-Majd", was arrested and imprisoned in Al-Jwaideh prison (a prison specific for those awaiting trial).
Arrest reasons still unclear, it is presumed that this is a reaction to his recent article in "Al-Majd" (in which he criticized the government), and based on violating the new un-constitutional temporary Penal Code which has a wide list of publishing and opinion "sins" which incriminates even the slightest criticism of the regime and government.
Mr. Rimawi will be detained for 15 days pending.
More information will come your way by tomorrow as the picture clears. Regards,
Dr. Hisham Bustani

Your Majesty:
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is writing to protest the recent arrest of Fahd al-Rimawi, editor of the weekly newspaper Al-Majd.
On January 13, according to press reports and CPJ sources, a State Security Court prosecutor in Amman summoned al-Rimawi and accused him of publishing "false information," an offense under Jordan's Penal Code. He was subsequently ordered detained for 15 days for questioning.
The arrest resulted from several Al-Majd articles that criticized the government of Prime Minister Ali Aboul Ragheb. One article quoted local sources who claimed, correctly as it turned out, that the government would soon be replaced.
Al-Rimawi is being held in Amman's Juwaydeh Prison. If convicted, he could face a prison sentence and a stiff fine under new Penal Code provisions.
As a nonpartisan organization of journalists dedicated to defending press freedom worldwide, CPJ views the arrest of Fahd al-Rimawi as a grave threat to press freedom in Jordan. Journalists should never be deprived of their liberty for carrying out their professional work. Such actions violate basic international norms for freedom of expression and can only inhibit the free circulation of news and opinion.
Your Majesty has stated on more than one occasion that the "sky is the limit" for press freedom in Jordan. In this spirit, we urge you to ensure that Fahd al-Rimawi is released immediately.
Sincerely,
Ann Cooper
Executive Director
