Tourism without a ‘drink’

This post has been read 94074 times!

Kuwait is trying to diversify its income and search for alternative sources instead of depending on the sole source of oil, such as tourism but this is difficult in light of the ban on drinking alcohol. This can be overcome by resorting to many alternatives to make tourism a source of income for the state and a pleasure for the tourists by seeing and experiencing things that they do not find in any other country in the world, such as arranging a visit to the miserable building of the treatment unit abroad, through which more than four billion dollars were spent to send tens of thousands of citizens for tourism abroad at the expense of the state, under the pretext of receiving treatment.

They’ll learn about the fact that half of that amount was stolen or gone as commission, and that only 2% to 3% of patients needed treatment. They will be able to see how the apparatus works from the inside and listen to an explanation of how its decisions contributed to spoiling the conscience of large numbers of MPs, citizens, and officials of several government agencies.

The second tourist stop could be the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation and its board of directors in particular, whereby its members were forced to cancel the famous Dow Chemicals deal, which would have generated billions in the country annually other than having to pay a $2.2 billion fine for rescinding the contract, which is the biggest fine in human history because of the helplessness and weakness of some of our politicians, cunning, envy and the loudness of the voice of some of our representatives. It is also possible to arrange a night visit, with audio and video, to the building of the Public Institute for Social Security because it is the only party whose general manager has been able, over the course of sixteen years to continue stealing it, and to see for themselves that it was the longest period of theft in the history of the region.

Tourists can also, for a small fee, sit in the chair in which the general manager used to carry out all his billion thefts with great confidence. Tourism companies can also be tempted to send their delegations to visit the homes and offices of parliamentarians before and after their election to learn closely about the miracles of Kuwaiti democracy that turn shabby minds, ideas and clothes into stars that satellite channels race to host and claim that they did not hear the question. Kuwaiti tourists can also look closely at the fastest damaged and destroyed streets in the world a year after its completion, and how some sidewalks have disappeared as they are of the same level with the roads due to the re-asphalting of them time after time, a phenomenon that does not exist in any other country.

Some tourists would also like to visit the completion of transactions offices of the voters in the district of some parliamentarians, and benefit from them in completing their suspended transactions even in their own countries. They can also, by special arrangement with the Secretary of the United Nations, visit the Public Authority for Disability which has received the largest number of cases of forgery of disability certificates, and which allowed some to retire at an early age and despite their complete disability to become MPs and ministers afterwards in a phenomenon that has no equivalent in the world.

It is possible to arrange for them to obtain the signatures of these miraculous disabled people, and to take memorial photos with them. Then, tourists can be taken in airconditioned buses to inform them of the areas designated for self-sufficiency projects of vegetables, fruits and meat which have been transformed into self sufficiency projects from resorts and parks. There are, of course, many other places that tourists can visit, such as the Psychiatric Hospital, which has the largest number of files of psychiatric patients in the world, in proportion to the population and see what benefits the psychiatric patient gets.

Tourists from Islamic countries in particular have the right to visit some religious associations, especially those with external activities, and religious ones affiliated with the Ministry of Awqaf, and to see closely the way in which the government’s cakes are shared quietly and without fuss, and to publish very few news reports about referrals of accused persons to the prosecution, and they are not referrals, nor are they accused.

* The idea of the article was borrowed from our colleague Sami Al- Nisf, noting that there are dozens of other examples that it is not enough to enumerate them.
