    Those five countries might want to thank Kuwait for not allowing their citizens to travel to a discriminating, backward cesspool.

    The extreme level of Islamophobia in Kuwait is truly horrendous.

    I thought Kuwait was a Muslim country. How could one be a "Islamophobia" if one practices the religion of Islam?

    Lots of practice? Vitamin supplements? Voodoo?

    You have a very valid point.

    I feel better now. Kuwait is a worthy benchmark for the new America.

    This is interesting. The link also mentioned a very draconian practice. Kuwait is enforcing a mandatory DNA testing program and data base to combat terrorism in their country!

    Its because a country which is bordering Iraq doing something like that makes more sense than US or Canada doing it.

    Have there been any riots in the streets? Where are the cries of unfairness? Actually it makes just as much sense for the US or Canada. Why can Kuwait block terrorists but the US can't?

    I'm willing to guess that those that have an issue with the United States doing this is because they have EPTSD (election post traumatic stress disorder).

    It seems that Muslims just cannot assimilate with Western countries, they go there and want to live their own way trying to change the very country they have entered, its just not on, it is bad and should not be tolerated at all.
