KUWAITI NEWS ROUND-UP or SMORGASBOARD: JANUARY 2008 By Kevin Anthony Stoda  

One Kuwaiti friend sent me an online story this morning about one of Osama Bin-Laden’s son’s, who is in Egypt these days promoting a peace ride or race across the deserts of North Africa. 

 

It would appear that the despite the looks of the young Bin Laden, who “bears a striking resemblance to his notorious father — except for the dreadlocks that dangle halfway down his back.”

The articles in the local papers in Kuwait on this apparently maverick of a child (i.e. from the delusions, hate and destructiveness of the father) all note that although the young man does not wish to disown his father outright, he and his elder British wife want to be Peace Ambassadors in the troubled Middle East.

 

The younger Bin Laden states, "It's about changing the ideas of the Western mind. A lot of people think Arabs — especially the bin Ladens, especially the sons of Osama — are all terrorists. This is not the truth”

 

The western press is skeptical of the acorn actually falling far from the tree, “Of course, many may have a hard time getting their mind around the idea of ‘bin Laden: peacenik.’"

Interesting, President Bush—who just came through Kuwait last weekend—has had ties via his own family for decades:

The western press hasn’t found that strange enough to write about too much over the decades.

 

BUSH’S KUWAIT AND MIDDLE EAST TRIP

 

While Americans in South Carolina and Nevada are heading to primaries, the infamous George W. Bush has returned to the USA from Egypt, Kuwait, and numerous neighboring lands.

 

One of the few laudable things  from his visit was the fact that in Ramallah he openly lamented on the border crossings and check points there and on his trip to other parts of Palestine from Israel.

  Meanwhile, the “villagers of Bil'in located near the Central West Bank city of Ramallah, along with their international and Israeli supporters conducted their weekly demonstration against the illegal Israeli wall on Friday.”

All Bush seemed to want to talk about in Kuwait was Iran but most of the local papers weren’t too interested, especially in the days leading up to his visit here.  Most simply pooh-poohed any possibility of the Kuwaiti regime supporting any more cavalier wars in the area.
