These are the kind of MPs we have:
Mr Al Mo’awda said he was not proud for the country to be associated with the burial mounds.
“We must have pride in our Islamic roots and not some ancient civilisation from another place and time, which has only given us a jar here and a bone there,” he said.
Civilisation didn’t exist of course before Islam. So why the hell bother with over 6,000 years of history? He’ll have us just make do with the last 1,400 years or so.
Rock on dude!
But his comments, which were backed by Jassim Al Mawali and Jassim Al Saeedi, angered other MPs, who called for the protection of the sites.
Of course he would have these usual asswipes to support this view. Thankfully, there were some who had some sense to slap them down:
MP Fareed Ghazi said that only six per cent of the burial mounds in A’ali remained.
“How can we as men of intellect and culture say such things about the A’ali burial mounds,” he said.
Mr Ghazi said they belonged to future generations and that building new homes should not be at the expense of an historic site.
Abdulnabi Salman was on a roll again (he must feel exhausted after the last week, Dhahrani certainly was, the swooning swan had to be hospitalised due to “exhaustion” last night… Ø¶Ø§Ø±Ø¨ ÙƒØ²Ù…Ù‡ Ùˆ Ø´ÙŠÙˆÙ„ ÙŠØ§ Ø®ÙˆÙƒ – no, his exhaustion apparently was due to his all out efforts to get the “Right to Assemble, processions and demonstrations” bill passed – as instructed by his masters – which basically puts everyone who dares demonstrate in prison, after being severely beaten for his or her efforts of course)
“How can you reduce one of the world’s largest historical burial mounds to a small site?”
With only a day to go in this parliamentary term, it’s brain farts open season it seems!
