Addressing the Kuwaiti Emir

A reader sent met this:  "Hi As'ad, this has been underreported in the media. The way this Kuwaiti opposition MP has broken the taboo of addressing the emir directly has set a precedent that will be difficult to reverse and is likely to be raising eyebrows in Gulf states. Twitter was going crazy with it. Historic indeed.  Don't be deceived by the speaker though. He's a populist and will say anything to get the crowd roaring. But this really is unprecedented and is worth a watch.  I wonder if Saudi tanks will be rolling into Kuwait soon.  No attribution please, in name or affiliation."
