3imaarah


Audio with Theyab's pronunciation

This :imaarah has been the subject of recent debate in Kuwait

























David Lynch is not always trying to freak people out. Recently I read something he wrote about buildings, and it rang true in light of the news that Kuwait's former Chamber of Commerce is to be demolished.

"When we see an old building, nshuuf nature and man working together.

"If we dammarnaa that building, maa yubgaa li-haa siHir.

"But if the building is allowed to age, then man has built it and aT-Tabii:ah has added to it."
