(MENAFN - Arab Times) Some people have cautioned on the danger of heating up the society by using the controversial tape issue as it might damage relations between the National Assembly and the government. A day after the interrogation of Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad on allegation that he has in his possession an audio recording of a plot to topple the government, several people have started taking advantage of the situation to heat up the polity



Commenting on the issue, Secretary General of the Parliament MP Yacoub Al-Sane has warned against using the issue as a tool for serving personal agenda to destabilize the country. "The issue is not trivial since it has to do with the pillars of the nation



Misunderstandings among members of the ruling family should be resolved amongst themselves, considering they have the ability to address the problem. We will not allow the previous opposition group or any other group, for that matter, to use the issue because if it goes out of hand; everybody will feel the heat. People identify those who are trying to set the flame of crisis and cause unrest," he added. Al-Sane also expressed confidence in the ability of the judiciary to handle the situation; asserting nobody should play with such a sensitive issue



He stressed, "Do not destroy the plate from which all of us are eating. We must protect Kuwait and prevent the crisis," MP Abdulhamid Dashti said he is surprised that some lawmakers insist on exploiting the issue. He asked the political leadership to intervene in order to bury the hatchet, noting that some members of the ruling family are interested in short cuts to attain objectives. He pointed out it is now up to the ruling family's council to handle the law on the inheritance of the Amiri position



MP Faisal Al-Kandari said it seems some people, who have exit of the political troublemakers from the scene which made them lose their minds. Kuwait has been living in this manner for the past 30 years, such that some discordant voices chanted, 'Except the Constitution', even during the Iraqi occupation. They were not convinced that the priority was to liberate the country from the aggressors, so they resumed the same outcry later



Today, we want to ask them questions. Who tampered with the Constitution? Who breached and violated it? Who irritated the executive and legislative authorities? Weren't those who raised the slogan, 'Except the Constitution', the same ones who crept onto the government, flipped over the country and invented parliamentary dictatorship which does not exist anywhere in the world? They have paralyzed the country and consider whoever is striving to work or oppose them a bribe-taker or traitor. With all these actions, they have made Kuwaitis into divided citizens and tribes. When are we going to stop the clique of selfish people from using the fate of Kuwait to feed fat on slogans like 'Enough of Frivolities', 'We Will Not Agree with You', 'Go Away' and 'National Dignity'? These people are supposed to be part of the legislative authority which is saddled with responsibilities to implement the Constitution, enact the law and develop the society



Did they perform expected duties or transform their parliamentary membership into a self-serving and destructive institution that is open for looting of public funds, dividing citizens and spreading crises? It is now time for the concerned authorities to stop all these acts. They should take a decisive step to discourage unrest which makes Kuwaitis live in perpetual worry about rumors, hearsays and misconceptions. If the political leadership has taken the right step by getting rid of troublemakers from the government through the voting pattern, other authorities should follow suit. The action must start in the Cabinet. It should act fast rather than standing aloof while blaming the legislative authority, which will not change its ways since the lawmakers have a short-cut to achieve their objectives. They toe the path laid down by their predecessors in terms of grilling and threats. Yes, the government should act according to a popular adage, "An ear of mud, another of dough". It must ignore all excuses whenever it feels pressure from anyone. Considering experiences in the last three years, it is glaring that the government must bear responsibility for the situation of the country; simply because it did not resolve national issues. Until when will this intrigue last? When will the government stop obstructing itself due to its indecision? Does it intend to give the destroyers an excuse to disintegrate the country? If this is the case, what will the government gain other than contributing to the 'killing' of the country
