Adel Al-Moawdah: “We entered the parliament to please our God before pleasing the people. We won’t sell our ever-after for this life.”
He also denies defaming “most” Barhaini business people with this comments reported earlier that they are the “morally corrupt lobby,” he claims his words were skewed and that the media is mounting a campaign against him personally. Hence he doesn’t see a reason to apologise for his remarks. He didn’t do nor say anything wrong.
Adel Al-Moawdah also firmly disbelieves that the closure of Big Brother Arabia will affect business and capital in Bahrain and encourages investment in “clean” projects – which he sanctions of course1.
He initiates the fire, then runs as far away as possible from it, letting others fan it with their hatred until it becomes all consuming. He of course didn’t do anything, just pour some kerosene and lit the match. As in Nancy Ajram’s case, he had nothing to do with the consequences, as he didn’t have anything to do with slandering the whole business community, MBC, the contestants and the 200 workers (now unemployed) at the show.
He has simply pulled himself out of it completely and blames the media for misrepresenting and misquoting him.
Perhaps his final declaration that he’s in parliament on a religious mission sums it up nicely. With this (documented) declaration, he emphasises that his mission and bloc is invariably to get Bahrain to be the next Tarliran. His duty as an MP to find solutions to people’s problems as in employment, health, services, education and eradicating corruption and nepotism is only second to turning this country into a Islamist state closer to his vision of the 7th century, than a modern, vibrant, tolerant country of the 21st.
I sometimes just wish and dream of owning a time-machine. If I had, I would use it exclusively to send these people back to the age they so long to be in. Then we’d see just how long they would last in their Utopia!
