Take for instance the Muttawa, or morality police, in Saudi Arabia who walk around with their whips terrorizing countless people (usually women)for "modesty violations". These men, usually the most depraved, corrupt and evil of them all, are well known for their hypocritical self-righteousness. You'll learn that you are in violation for something as insignificant as showing your tongue while eating an ice cream cone and read about the stoning to death of a deaf girl who was mistaken for a prostitute when the Muttawa observed her brother tap her on the shoulder in public to get her attention. The inhumanity is unfathomable!
Also included are stories of some of the infamous princes. Arab men, especially Saudi men have been spoiled rotten as children by their wealthy parents. Brought up to believe men are superior and women are a burden, used solely for sexual pleasure and providing male children has led to untold atrocities and countless victims. This should be mandatory reading for Western women contemplating a relationship with a Muslim man. They are skilled, even financially rewarded in some cases, for wooing non-muslims into marriage.Read more ›
We corresponded and a friendship developed; I currently seek out his Columns in the Jerusalem Times.
He shared a proof of "Karin" with me about 18 months ago; it was fascinating and I could not put it down.
We Westerns tend to clump all Arabs and Muslims into one homogeneous group. This is no more correct there than it would be to say that America, state to state, is homogeneous; it is also a dangerous assumption.
Dr. Alrabaa, with great skill and entertainment value, drives home the fact that Saudi Arabia, our supposed ally, home of the Wahabi movement from which the majority of Jihadist Terrorism sprang, is an exceeding cruel and self-centered society. Karin's story is one that every woman should read. It is infuriating, evil and, unfortunately, both true and representative of the situation all women in Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere, must tolerate and survive.
A Gripping Read and I highly recommend it to all.
