MP Ban

A short and to the point fun post for today:

The Facts:
- Alcohol is allowed in Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and Oman. It is not allowed in Saudi or Kuwait.
- During an MP session, it was a majority vote to ban alcohol.
- The MP's are up for re-election this year.
- The decision is to be raised to King Hamad on the 10th of May for a final binding decision.

The Proposed:
- Alcohol to be served only to those who are non-muslim. All of this in the name of Islam, of course.

The Stupid:
- See above. Because Islam is about choice; if you have no choice, you're just a sheep and therefore whether you do good or otherwise has nothing to do with your conscience, it's just you doing what you do. Second of all, if a 'muslim' person sends his non-muslim friend, maid, etc to go get alcohol, you're still in the same dilemma. Third, black markets exist; examples are in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, where a bottle of Black Label has a higher street price than almost anywhere else in the World.

ammaro's Proposal:
- Let's ban MP's.

Random Observation:
- Walked into a Zain Shop today, and they had a large Wheel. Asked them what it was for and they said, pay BD4 and spin the wheel to win. Great. Alcohol is on the verge of being banned and people are already opening casinos. Nice.

BAN ALCOHOL IN BAHRAIN? WHAT DA FUCK? WHERE ARE ALL THE POOR SAUDIS GONNA GO ON THE WEEKEND FOR FUN? I THINK THE KING WOULD BE MAKING THE BIGGEST MISTAKE IN HIS LIFE IF HE BANNED ALCOHOL. FIRSTLY BECAUSE ALCOHOL IS GOOD AND SECONDLY BECAUSE OF LOST REVENUE. WE ALL KNOW THAT ALLOWING NON MUSLIMS TO DRINK BUT BANNING MUSLIMS IS NOT THE WAY A GOOD BUSINESSMAN THINKS BECAUSE MUSLIMS ARE THE BIGGEST DRINKERS IN THE WORLD.

P.S: DO NOT MODERATE THE ''FUCK'' IN THIS COMMENT BECAUSE IF YOU DID THAT, IT WOULD NOT BE AN HRH COMMENT. HRH WITHOUT A COUPLE OF FUCKS AND SCREW AND SUCKS IS NOT HRH ANYMORE. HUH? WHAT DA FUCK AM I SAYING? HRH IS NOW CONFUSED BUT I HOPE YOU GET MY DRIFT BECAUSE I DON'T.

HRH KING AL RASHID

Good observations. The shift from serious to humorous, with the sudden "The Stupid," made me grin. Great way of portraying how idiotic this whole alcohol issue is!

And yes, of course Islam is all about choices. You'd think Saudi Arabia would listen. I hope Bahrain won't be as limiting.
