Saudi Arabia: More brutal laws for “insulting” Islam

Notice the media using “conservative” to describe these savages. More Orwellian language.

“Saudi Arabia considers law against insulting Islam” Reuters

Saudi Arabia is studying new regulations to criminalise insulting Islam, including in social media, and the law could carry heavy penalties, a Saudi paper said on Sunday. More  “insulting” Islam

Abuse of maids in Saudi Arabia is a common occurrence.

Read about unpaid and tortured Sri Lankan domestics, including a woman who had 24 nails removed from her legs here. Ready for more? Three months ago 22 Indonesian maids were exonerated and freed from death row, while 25 others remain there. And 1.700 Indonesian servants are serving prison terms in the kingdom. The Arab News wrote in April that many of the death row inmates were “implicated on baseless grounds.” The family of a Filipino maid who was murdered in her employers’ home were forced to suffer one more indignity–her corpse was abused in a Saudi morgue.

Indonesia now prohibits maids from working in Saudi Arabia. A quick internet search will uncover some reforms in regards to foreign domestics there, but this latest Arab News story leaves me quite skeptical.

Dirty Saudi Tricks: Wellesley, Massachusetts Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah

The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque – during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam. A mosque spokesperson is seen teaching the children that in Mohammed’s 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools – the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.
