Apparently a significant cause of  road traffic accidents in the Kingdom are all the ‘dangerously under-qualified’ expatriate drivers…

Of course the tens of thousands accidents are nothing really to do with young wreckless Saudi men who show a complete disregard for road safety, drive around as though they are in a ‘fast and furious’ film and moreover who seem to be totally above the law and are rarely culpable for any of the carnage they cause.

In most cases they seem pose for selfies next to the wreck, thank God for their safety and their fathers buy them a replacement car within a week or so?

Disclaimer: This is my observation based on 100+ traffic accidents I have witnessed around the country and may not be a truly representative demographic of the overall problem

The president of Indonesia Joko Widido last May announced his country would no longer send female Indonesian nationals to countries around the world because of issues including non-payment of wages, abuse, sexual harresssment and general violations or employment contracts…

The truth is many Saudi woman have rapidly overtaken men academically and professionally within the Kingdom but they continue to face societal prejudice and barriers which curtail their potential success

One such obstacle is Saudi men refusing to marry successful Saudi woman if the work in non-traditional fields which they deem as inappropriate or unacceptable. This often means that professional woman working in say a hospital who work alongside men and have male patients would exclude themselves from a large number of potential suitors. In essence men will refuse to marry a woman if she comes in to contact with other men….

Protecting your wife from unwanted attention or the height of male insecurity and patriarchal dominantion?

They have banned any law that would stop child marriage because the prophet himself married Aisha an 8 year old girl.

Sahih Bukhari volume 5, book 58, number 234),

In Islam girls can be engaged to be married at 8, over the next few years the groom can participate in ‘appropriate sexual behaviour e.g. thighing’ and relationship can be fully consummated at puberty (11years +?)

On the back of the assault, molestation, robbery of upwards of 100 woman by 1000 men of ‘North African and Arab appearance’ one 32 year old German street performer decided to make her point of view known. Whether you think she is brave, stupid or just an attention seeker she probably has a valid point to make…

Her sign reads,

Respect us! We are no fair game, even when we are naked!!!
