Kuwait: Give Women More Rights

As usual, this week's Kuwait round up by Abdullatif Al Omar addresses a number of issues including the disappearance of people in summer, Kuwait's unwritten traffic code, the attack of a Kuwaiti diplomat in Iran and the plight of mothers who cannot be considered as legal guardians for their children - simply because they are women.

Kuwait: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

This week's Kuwaiti blog posts swing from good to bad .. sometimes just plain ugly, writes Abdullatif AlOmar. In good news, read how Filipinos in the Emirate celebrated their country's national day; in the bad see how Kuwaiti women are now banned from working after 8pm and in the ugly news, check out the horrible destiny of a police dog.

Kuwait's Reputation is Gonu !

Kuwaiti bloggers were on high alert this week, awaiting news of the devastating cyclone Gonu, which has killed around 50 people in nearby Oman. Abdullatif AlOmar, who reviews this week's blogs, also tells us how they were enraged with an op-ed which appeared in a local newspaper - which they say aimed at tarnishing their country's reputation.

Kuwait: Parties, Art and Telecom

With Yemenis in Kuwait celebrating their Unification Day, Kuwaiti bloggers are out in full force checking out art exhibitions, the telecoms situation, wedding parties and book censorship in this week's review of Kuwaiti blogs by Abdullatif AlOmar.
