Neutral, is spot on in his comment in most cases. When it comes to Iran they are all bark and no bite. One understands though, as any intervention would be a invitation to Israel to act on certain targets in Iran it has long wanted to.

Kuwait does not have a strong Muslim Brotherhood presence. Islamists only have 3 seats in the Kuwaiti Parliament.

Kuwaiti society is the most liberal society in the Arabian Gulf

Among the Gulf states, Kuwait has the:

-Highest percentage of local women who don't wear the abaya

-Highest percentage of local women who don't wear the hijab

-Highest percentage of local citizens wearing Western clothes

Virtually all Emirati women wear the black abaya and hijab because in Emirati society local women aren't allowed to wear Western style clothes.

Many Kuwaiti women don't wear the abaya, Western-style clothing is common among Kuwaiti women. In Kuwaiti society, it's socially acceptable and common for local women to wear Western clothes

50% of Kuwaiti women work. How many Emirati women work? UAE is more discriminatory to women than Kuwait.

@Marmita...Obviously you're not from the south nor from the middle east thus the comment. There is not much of them from the south as well? You are also not aware that visas are sent to the recruitment agency directly by employers and do require embassy stamps. Unless you can back your comments with official figures, please do not make such comments. The most popular airlines for NUMEROUS OFW's in the middle east from the southern part of the Philippines are CATHAY PACIFIC and SINGAPORE AIRLINES which the author forgot to mention in the article. Why they are favorites you may ask? These are the only airlines which can take them nearest to their native places without having to get tied up with the hassles of passing through Manila.
