Lekhwiya on Facebook?

Well this is a bit of a concern. Qatar’s Lekhwiya is a form of “Elite” police force, they’re internal security to protect us (Like Japan’s Self Defence Force). We don’t really have any crime in Qatar, but they’re here to protect us against terrorists and anything in general if I think about it. They drive the red Land Cruisers in Qatar, they train hard and are tough, and they do some incredibly hard training. I think they’re great and they’re doing a great job, however I do wish that there were more traffic police out there enforcing the laws.

Anyway, I was on facebook and I don’t know if this was the actual Lekhwiya or a person on the force, but there was an advert for them there. That either means someone really likes the Lekhwiya or they’re on facebook, which kind of makes me wonder what they’re monitoring.

Here’s a video

They had a bunch of other videos and pictures but I also loved watching this particularly

Watch the women go! Willing to fight and stand up for the weak and for the country. God bless them.

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
