Oman’s new leader receives dignitaries

World leaders have travelled to Oman to meet its new leader, Sultan Haitham bin Tariq Al Said.
The sultan was sworn in on Saturday after the death of his cousin and longtime ruler Qaboos bin Said Al Said.
The new leader has promised to uphold his predecessor’s approach as a regional peacemaker.

      @amit verma I respect people of all religions and backgrounds but its common sense the people of Kashmir are under lock down and clearly don’t want to be part of India.

    • Adal Hussain Reply

      @Singh Rajput We cry not for Kashmir but for the family’s who are losing there loved ones everyday day and night. Persecution and fear is what the people of Kashmir have been going through since partition, nobody deserves that Not Hindu or Muslim or Sikh.

      What a great example on how to run a country. NO INTERFERANCE in any other countries affairs, looking after its own citizens and choosing diplomacy rather than conflict. Wish other world leaders would look at this as a model

      Actually oman has held this mentality for as long as it existed, but sadly just because you’re neutral doesn’t mean others will treat you the same.

      We faced countless invasions throughout our history (because we were the only stable nations in the middle east and had the street of hormuz) by british, Portugal, persians, and even the muslim kings (after the ismalic nations stopped being caliphate and basically and kingdom).

      And today we have major enemies the sore thumbs are saudi and uae, and uae specifically have tried god knows how many times to incite revelations, coups, and division in the country. (Alhamdulilah they were csught every time)

    A very sensitive and well done presentation. Much love and peace to Oman. May it continue to prosper and shine as a model for a better World.

      In the eyes of allah there is no difference between and king and slave, nor arbian on another race.

      But how would you spouse a country to be run, even during his and the caliphate reign they basically worked as kingdom, only difference is that they lived with the people.

      And let me tell yoy qaboos was the same, he visited all the tribes and populance, he would also always go around asking them directly what they needed. And even castle wise he doesnt have one in every corner of the country, he was a humble man, may his soul rest in peace.

    ALL THESE GULF COUNTRIES NEED DEMOCRACY. People are tired of monarchies and king-worship. The peace you are seeing is not peace but suppression of freedom of speech.

    • Aya Reply

      Oman and its citizens are saying otherwise. Look at what democracy has brought to people in the US and other countries. Free hospitals, schools, and peace. What more do we need?

    • Qabileghor Reply

      @Aya Freedom is more important than all the goods in the world. It’s what makes you feel like a human being. Otherwise, you are just like an animal in a gilded cage.

      I agree that democracy in the US has become corrupt. But in a democracy, there is always hope that people will awaken and change the system peacefully. In a monarchy, you have to wait until the Sultan dies, which can be a very long time.

      Oman is happy now because of one commodity: oil. Imagine what will happen to Onan when the world no longer needs oil. What will you sell? There are many areas of development that are being ignored in Oman because the rulers see them as a threat to their rule. You will not realize these things because things are good for the time being. When things go bad, you will realize what you were missing.

    • Aya Reply

      @Qabileghor you realized that Oman has alot of other investments such as in frankincense, technological innovation, and tourism.

      Yes with freedom good things come but only if its limited freedom. Let’s use the example of the freedom to drink, yes you can drink but it has bad societal consequences.

      Lots of people often miss seeing how freedom at a larger picture affect everyone.

      There is democracy in a way. We have something called (majlis al shura) it allows people to vote for council.

      Why can’t a country be peaceful without everyone butting their heads into our business? Tell me what suppression of speech am i missing out on?

      Oh yes if the whole world is tired of kings and sultans, Omanis say otherwise, we are happy with what we have. People dont have a way of voting for corruption.

    • Qabileghor Reply

      @Aya You do have a valid point that democracy has not worked in many areas of the world and that is mostly due to corruption. Democracy also requires a spirit of compromise and accommodation. Just because someone got elected, it doesn’t mean that he should be allowed to become a dictator. However, despite all that, democracies do have some benefits. Mostly, there are checks and balances. The rulers are not allowed to abuse power or be blackmailed by foreign powers. If a foreign power has dug up some dirt on the ruler, the ruler could sell the interests of the country to save his reputation. And there will be no one to question him. The ruler can also grant foreign powers a military base in his country in return for personal protection or as safeguard from threats that the foreign power had created to serve its own interests. So the independence of the country is lost and it becomes a vassal of a powerful foreign power.

      In a monarchy, the ruler owns the land, its resources and its people. In a democracy, people own the country and the ruler is a servant who can be dismissed in an election or be impeached. If you do not have the freedom to criticize the monarch, he will do just enough to keep his people quiet. But when things go bad, the result is chaos and bloodshed.

      I have lived in the Midfle East and also countries which used to be dictatorships but are now democracies. All democracies start out very badly but they do improve over time. Europeans are not stupid. They understood it long time ago. Arabs, unfortunately, are still learning.

      But people always try to increase tension, heck even when japan suffered a great calamity during 2011 sultan qaboos aided them (even though he was facing trouble from within)

      Islamic world cant be fixed because half of you lots are selfish bastards who want the benefit for yourselves and not for all.
