What's next for Kuwait after the death of its ruler? | Inside Story

The Emir of Kuwait, Skeikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, was one of the last of the Arab world’s old guard, the architect of Kuwait’s foreign policy for more than 50 years.

When he passed away on Tuesday at the age of 91, it left a void in the country, and the Gulf more broadly, that few other figures can fill.

    I'm sorry, but GOD promised "Israel" to the jewish people (In the Bible & Torah) and "Al-Aqsa Mosque" (Islam) is a place in heaven and not in Jerusalem! Jerusalem don't mentioned even once in the book of Islam (The Quran) Jerusalem belongs to the jews and the "third temple" should be build in the "temple mount" in Jerusalem, Israel…..

    KSA and UAE will try to get the new Emir to become their puppet like the ruler of Bahrain already is. This guy did not want Gulf to escalate with Qatar, Turkey and Iran. Respect him for that. Rest in Jannah.

    He still gave a lot of money to the Assad family for supposedly humanitarian reasons. He also backed the war in Yemen. I understand Qatari, Turkish and Iranian people liking him but after death we all have to answer to Allah. He was a man of faith, Assad clearly is not.

    I also can't forget how he promised money from Kuwait to Hezbollah dominated Lebanon. No wonder Iran liked the guy so much.
