The deadly suicide bomb attack at a mosque in Kuwait City yesterday was a cowardly act that took the lives of innocent civilians. The act was carried out in one of the holiest situations: during the holy month of Ramadan, during group Friday prayers, and the bomb was reportedly detonated while those praying were in the ‘sujood’ position, the closest Muslims believe they can be to God. Sadly, the crime was carried out at a Shiite mosque, but the reaction of the Kuwaiti public has been beautiful, and has evolved through several stages of grief.
Stage 1: Casting blame on the killers, not the sect
Stage 2: Collective mobilization
Through social media, Kuwaitis have ensured that ISIS receives their message loud and clear: ISIS has failed to divide KuwaitYara al-Wazir
