RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi Arabia has launched a nationwide crackdown on stores selling items that are red or otherwise allude to the banned celebration of Valentine's Day.
A Saudi official says the feared religious police are inspecting shops for red roses, heart-shaped products or gifts wrapped in red, and ordering storeowners to get rid of them.
Red-colored or heart-shaped items are legal at other times of the year, but as Feb. 14 nears they become contraband in Saudi Arabia...

I think except for North Korea, Saudi Arabia has to be the most totaltarian state in the world.
Because the Unholy Qur’an is the constitution of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
You don’t bring me flowers, anymore...
Shhh, don’t say that the Muslim religion is totalitarian. Remember how Pat Robertson got in trouble for saying that.
Islam is a religion without a heart.......
Of course they'd hate St Valentine's day and hearts and what not......
No red flowers for you!
Saudi Arabia: the official Land of No Fun (TM).
Does this mean they will stop supporting homicide bombers, decapitations, and amputations for a month? After all, human blood was red, the last time I heard.
No last-minute gifts.
We should toss korans in the toilet for ramadan until they relent.
And some in the US don’t get that this is the kind of life they want to inflict upon us.
Saudi Arabia: free beating and interrogation with student ID.
All humans are people. But not all people are human.
As Bob Wills used to day...”Man after my own heart(With a razor)!”
Why do we as individuals keep propping up this regime?
We express our (justified) disgust at these barbarians here in this forum, yet every time we put gas in our car we’re financially supporting them. We’re voting with our pocketbooks in favor of the islamic totalitarian state.
I for one will keep telling them to go pound sand every time I get on my bicycle to commute to/from work, to the grocery store, visit friends, etc.

That is a start, but very insignificant. The food delivered to the grocery store that you pedal to arrives on trucks, not bicycles. The whole food chain from farm to store is energy intensive and depends on oil. As much as we would like to be independent from foreign oil, we are nowhere near it.
