Kuwaiti Sheikha Fraiha, chairperson of the Kuwait Society for the Ideal Family, on Thursday made an appearance at an event in her honor, in Salmiya. She expressed support for the request by Kuwait's Armenian community to be able to build an Orthodox church in the area.

From the article:
Describing her as a “role model in modesty”, Bishop Shahi Banossian said that the visit of Sheikha Fraiha is an “important occasion we thank God for."

Meanwhile, Armenian Ambassador to Kuwait Fadey Charchoghlyan expressed his gratitude to Sheikha Fraiha for her “distinguished and historic” visit.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

It's nice to hear something delightful about Christian-Muslim relations within the Middle East for a change.
