    It's a shame they don't have Wahhabism in Gaza. I'll bet Hilary wasn't chaperoned by a family member last week. :whip:

    they are the enemy....bin laden comes from that rearing....wahhabism, as well.

    we've turned a blind eye, for oil...

    iraq, although women could be sent to what some called ''rape chambers'' of the sons of saddam, the society in iraq was liberated, not wahhabis, women worked, drove, and very well educated compared to most of the middle east...

    i was still in high school and worked part time, with a girl a lttle older than me from iraq who was here on a visa, going to a university here...she was a remarkably bright and filled with a joyous personality...spoke english perfectly, very slight accent, studying medical technology so she could be a med tech back in iraq....this was during the time of the hostages in iran...right before they were released.

    i remember once we all went out for am ice creme sunday after work and the hostage crisis came up...she made certain she told us she was from Iraq, where the good guys were, and that she was iraqi, NOT iranean!!!

    Her name was Hamidah, don't remember her last name....i hope she is still alive, and wasn't killed in this war.... :(

    Funny how things change....or maybe, not so funny....

    care

    Saudi Arabia's ostensibly Islamic justice system is a complete sham. Generally, these controversial rulings are made with complete disregard for what is actually said in the Qur'an or their Sunni ahadith. That a punishment exists for mingling with unrelated members of the opposite sex is ridiculous... Allah's messenger himself would be guilty of "mingling" under Saudi law.

    What an appropriate time to recall the March 11, 2002 anniversary of the deaths of 14 young Saudi girls: ‘Religious Police’ in Saudi Arabia prevented firemen from entering a burning girls’ school where unmarried girls were living, resulting in 14 deaths.
