How... enlightened of the king.
No kidding! They have a script and they are sticking to it.
Here is someone who is bringing real reform, doing everything the Left consider near and dear, or at least moving in that direction. Nobody before him even tried. But the media loathes him because they see him as an ‘ally’ of Trump.
The King is clearly not omniscient like "The Experts" we have in here in America.
I know ... let's ship him a boatload of our "experts" so that he will know what to think and how to act.
This is changing their culture. I thought all cultures were equal?
Is there still a death penalty for any non-Muslim whod dare enter their segregated cities of Mecca and Medina?
So the way I read the article headline a person will no longer get the death penalty for flogging. Flogging as in using a whip or flogging as in British slag for selling? Or both?
The Oxford comma is our friend.
I’m not necessarily pro-Saudi. I am pro-Israel.
But I will give small credit where it’s due. King Salman is doing his best to reform Saudi Arabia - culturally and economically. I think he totally gets it that his nation can’t be an ass-backwards one sitting on an ocean of oil.
The steps is taking are definitely baby ones. It’s incredibly hard to undo decades of Wahhabi idiocy. There’s still opposition to him among the royal family and the multitude of princes and other royal hangers-on.
I guess the populace still has to watch out for homosexuals raining down from tall buildings.
Next project: a cathedral in Mecca and an Israeli embassy in Jeddah and nude beaches on the Gulf.
Yeah Saudi, you done arrived.
I strived to learn about islam. after 911 seeing as these savages flew our planes into WTC
I was shocked when I learned the world history from 623 on
Craig Winns book is excellent and very comprehensive
If you want to find someone whos done all the homework. This is it
You need to understand the enemy to defeat him
Prophet of Doom is the best-documented, most comprehensive, presentation of Islam’s five oldest and most reliable scriptural sources. Ishaq’s Biography of Muhammad, Tabari’s History of Islam, and Bukhari’s and Muslim’s Hadith, were used to reorder the Qur’an chronologically and to set its surahs into the context of Muhammad’s life. When this evidence is evaluated systematically, the only rational conclusion is that Islam’s lone prophet was a ruthless terrorist, a mass-murderer, a thief, slave trader, rapist and pedophile.
