The diwaniya is a Persian Gulf tradition in which men gather weekly in a
private home to
discuss issues ranging from politics to sports. Since the buildup
of American troops in the Gulf, the diwaniyas in
Kuwait have focused on the possible war in Iraq. Although most Kuwaitis
favor a U.S. invasion of Iraq, many are skeptical of America's
intentions in the Middle East.
