  9. Don't judge eveyone based on one person's action, idiot.

  10. Don't judge eveyone based on one person's action, idiot.

  11. Hala Yousef AL-Shayji Also, you are right.. maybe Annabell e shouldn't have generalized the whole population. Unfortunately, she is quite right. Kuwait is my country, a rich country, a country capable of so much and yet we live by "wasta". It is embarrassing for a country like Kuwait to be full of uneducated morons but it is the harsh reality. Our country has many, many issues just like any other country.. but looking at how advanced we are compared to 3rd world countries, we really have not advanced at all. At the end of the day, a woman just lost her life and we should all pay respect to her and her mourning family and friends.

  12. Hala Yousef AL-Shayji but you are missing the point. That animal shouldn't have been there in the first place. It is against the law to keep wild animals at home.

  13. Aliah ALSarraf yes it's an act of negligence. If I was the maid I would look for work else where. It's funny no one is blaming the Asian who left the cage open and every one is blaming the owner and Kuwaiti People of lack of education. It's a sad story.

  14. Hala Yousef AL-Shayji That may be true, but I have seen with my own eyes in Gulf street, young male Kuwaitis driving around with a cage in their backseat and a cheetah inside. He was driving around seeking the attention of others. It is a a new habit among this ridiculously weird generation. As for the maid, you know well how difficult it is to seek good employment from a good employer. She may have worked 10 years with that employer for all we care.. However, keeping wild animals in your home is a danger to that home AND others. The maid was a victim of negligence. If you were that maid, your family wouldn't say the same about you. That is a human life that was lost to some man's illegal activity.

  15. Aliah ALSarraf as for Anabelle comment she is ignorant Kuwaiti people don't need an education she the one that needs one you cannot generalize about a nation.

  16. Aliah AlSarraf many people around the world keep wild animals in their home as pets. That's their choice. No one goes out flirting with a lion. That's the media for you. The maid that was killed was working in her employer home for 5 years before she was attacked. Why didn't she leave if she was afraid or concered ?

  25. "Lion not a pet…" hahahhahahaha true but that made me laugh

  26. Hala Yousef AL-Shayji bitch go sit down somewhere!!
    you show how ignorant you are by your comments!

  27. Hala Yousef AL-Shayji forgive me Hala but what educated idiot keeps a pet lion and other wild animals as a tool for flirtation? 3rd world countries and our friend Anabelle are definitely more educated than you for making that stupid-ass comment.

  28. Hala Yousef AL-Shayji I really don't think so, because you have money doesn't mean your educated.

  29. What s the safety living in Kuwait. ……huh

  30. The Kuwait cannot understand wich is wild and domestic animals send them to the school to teach them properly what is right and wrong second thing they have to arrest the Kuwait owner who keep the wild animal in side the house

  31. Kaori Cole says:
