Well, hang with me here, you might be when you hear the story.

A former student from my University, Khaled al Faddala, secretary general of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in Kuwait, was sentenced to three months in prison on June 30 for insulting the prime minister.

Friends of Khaled AlFadala

Every little bit makes a difference.
