Over the years, I’ve written a great deal about how the Sunni government of Saudi Arabia cooperates with Al-Qaeda and its Wahhabi masses that populate the country. It’s the only way our “allies in the war on terror” can hold power and keep the Qaeda supporters from taking over, as they have in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and will soon elsewhere because Bush and Obama pioneered the “art” of the Muslim democracy fantasy. In that context, a couple of weeks ago, the Saudi religious police–the muttaween–kicked a woman out of a Saudi mall for committing the “indecency to Islam” of wearing nail polish. Might turn a guy on, and then he’ll have the legit “nail polish defense” because, after all, he shouldn’t be held responsible for putting his hormones and libido in check after seeing the nail laquer. Below is he video of the Saudi religious police’s nail polish encounter. Alhamdillullah [praise allah], the nail polish sluttiness epidemic has been banished. On the other hand, if I only had a dime for every haughty Muslim woman in a hijab or niqab wearing layers of make-up thicker than Rosie O’Donnell. If I only had a nickel for each time one of those woman looked at me disdainfully because I wasn’t covered in a sheet, as if I’m immodest. And yet they wear this thick make-up and nail polish, which kinda defeats the purpose of being totally covered, doesn’t it?
Now the Saudi religious police are pretending to be upset over this and claiming it was a rogue action, but only because they got caught on video. Look at how many of ’em are there. This wasn’t a rogue thing. It was–and remains–the usual Muttaween MO. These are the same religious police who forced girls to remain in a burning school and die, because men might see them if they let them out to escape the burning building. And, hey, they might get turned on.
The head of the Saudi religious police has come out strongly against one of his men who ordered a woman to leave a mall because she was wearing nail polish, a local daily reported on Monday.
“The world is manufacturing airplanes and we are still telling a woman ‘leave the mall because you’ve got nail polish on your fingers’,” local daily Al-Watan quoted Sheikh Abdullatiff Abdel Aziz al-Sheikh as saying.
The woman had defied the orders as she filmed her argument with the policeman and posted it on YouTube, in a video that attracted more than a million hits in the first few days after it went online.
“I was very disappointed by what I have seen. The matter has been exaggerated and negatively exploited,” Sheikh, head of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, said.
See, that’s the money quote. Normal people with decent Western values have taken note and given us bad publicity.
The three and a half minute video posted on May 23 shows members of the notorious commission telling the woman to “get out of here (the mall).”
But she refuses to comply, saying: “I’m staying and I want to know what you’re going to do about” it.
“It’s none of your business if I wear nail polish,” the unidentified woman, who is not seen on tape, is heard shouting at bearded men from the feared religious force.
“You are not in charge of me,” she defiantly shouts back, referring to new constraints imposed earlier this year on the religious police, banning them from harassing Saudi women over their behaviour and attire.
“The government has banned you from coming after us,” she told the men, adding “you are only supposed to provide advice, and nothing more.”
At one point during the video, she cautions the religious police that she has already posted the exchange online.
And in the end, the nail polish wearer and her religious police banishers have a lot in common: they hate Jews. They hate Israel. So, it’s not like I worry for this chick.
Still, if you think this ain’t comin’ to America, just give it a few centuries (or, perhaps, just decades).
It is not clear if the woman was eventually forced to leave the mall.
