Kuwait Times, Thursday, June 1, 2006
Kuwait, a culture of face, is more concerned about its reputation than anything else. As a result, issues such as corruption, terrorism and human rights violations are often denied or simply ignored. In most cases, the victims are punished. Despite the fact most people are too afraid to denounce them, some Kuwaiti and expat writers are exposing the violations committed against helpless victims... some times at the risk of being accused of destroying Kuwait’s reputation or even being arrested.
