Re: Saudi Law Against Driving - for females only

I apologise, and rescind my previous post.

It's all Greek to me.

Re: Saudi Law Against Driving - for females only

I for one would be glad if I didn't have to see Hilary Clinton acting all sexy in the newspaper all the time.

Interesting indeed. I wonder what the newspaper would have printed, had Hilary Clinton been President? A slightly pointless photo if she were airbrushed out in those circumstances. And what did they do when Golda Meir was their PM?
Look at this one with/without Laura Bush
she disappears even in the caption !

I've said it before and I'll say it again: it's beards that are to blame.

Men with beards are almost always nutters.

Ban beards, and the world will be a much better place.

I think it's quite too simple vision of the world, my dear!
So before we make a little western/eastern comparison I would make sure we are "clean".
Well, my dear, I never said Western society is perfect, but it's an oasis compared to Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Irak, Iran (...) you get the idea !

Why would anyone defend an oppressive, patriarchal regime ?
If those countries had been Christian, Buddhist or even Jewish, I bet they would've turned out differently: socially tolerant and accepting !

Wasn't really a "looker" though was she? (Not that Hilary would be in my spank reservoir either). Just sayin......

That's a flat-out lie !
I've met Jehovah Witnesses that admited they would disown their children because of somethinkg like this, but never to KILL !

As you can see, even Christian sectarians are more open-minded than Muslims !

At least we don't kill innocent people in the name of some violent doctrine and then yell out 'discrimination' when we're confronted about it !

Must feel nice issuing warnings knowing that you will never get banned for your trolling. Others get banned for lot less. Now stop spending all your time on the forum.

I think your generalization is really killing your credibility.

Yes, some people's interpretation of some aspects of a doctrine perhaps lead them to kill innocent people.

However generalizing such behaviour to all muslims is like called Czechs canibals because of this: http://spectator.sme.sk/articles/vie..._cannibal.html

Pretty ridiculous huh!

Don't take my word for it...I posted a video where Sam Harris talks about all these things !
And I know not all Muslims are killers, sometimes they're just accomplices !

I assume that not everybody knows the sad story of Ilan Halimi, a young Jewish man tortured by 'French' Muslims in the basement of a building !

During the three-week period, his kidnappers, at least 19 of them, tortured him by beating him all over his body, especially his testicles, completely wrapping his head in duct tape, except for his mouth, so he could breathe and eat through a straw, stabbing him, burning his body and face with lighters and cigarettes, sodomizing him with broom sticks and breaking his fingers. They urinated on him, kept him naked, scratched him, cut him with knives, and finally poured gasoline on him and set him on fire.
...neighbors came by to watch and to even participate in the torture but no one called the authorities.


In Villeurbanne, a Jewsih neighbourhood near Lyon, there have been over 25 anti-Semitic attacks in the last 10 years !
All the perpetrators were of course Muslim.
A recent attack: 21-Year-Old Man Attacked Near Lyon After Returning From Torah Course - http://www.shmais.com/jewish-news/it...m-torah-course


God bless the Religion of Peace™ !

yada yada something about someone in France or something
What has any of this nonsense about France to do with Saudi Arabia forbidding women from driving?

EDIT: Don't worry - no need to answer that.
