I would first like to pay my condolences to the families who have suffered losses in the horrific attack that took place yesterday in Imam Al-Sadiq mosque. These are tough times and may God give you the patience and strength to deal with this appalling situation.
I would also like to pay my condolences to my fellow citizens of Kuwait and urge them to stay solid and united in front of the evils that threaten our national unity and security.
These were cowardly attacks by evil lowlifes who are attempting to cause a sectarian division in our society to pave the way for ISIS, or as I like to call them the Satanic State, as they attempt to spread their evil around the region and the world. These terrorists can only thrive in a society that is divided with political or sectarian divisions and where law and order has collapsed as is the situation in Syria and Iraq.
However, Kuwaitis have responded accordingly as hundreds of Sunnis and Shiites headed to the Al-Bakir mosque to pray together, to hospitals and the blood bank to help in any way possible. Even His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah showed no regard for his own safety as head of state and was one of the first people to arrive at the scene of the explosion to stand by his fellow citizens. Sunnis and Shiites stood side by side to pray together in mosques to show unity and thousands of messages flooded the internet and social media condemning the cowardly act to show solidarity.
These attacks are a reminder to us of the dangers that surround Kuwait and the terrifying reality we face. What we just experienced was something until now we had only witnessed on TV before yesterday at noon prayers. It is time for Kuwaitis to be vigilant especially politicians and lawmakers who represent the different social and religious segments of Kuwait's society. It is time to leave political rifts and squabbles that could make us vulnerable to terrorists and time to push our youth to stand united against radicalism in all its forms.
We are one Kuwait, united and what happened was an attack on all of us, on our homeland, our brothers and our future. We must endeavor to build our future together because without unity, we will never survive the dangers surrounding us.
