Saudi Women Can Now Drive? NOPE. The Story’s BS – Here’s Why . . .

By Debbie Schlussel

Yes To Driving And . . . Death to America & The Evil Zionists!

Headlines all over the world are blaring that Saudi women will now be able to drive. Bullcrap. Don’t believe the hype. Even though the Saudi King and Crown Prince have decreed it, it’s a head fake. And here’s why . . . .

On Tuesday, Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad pretended to the world that their Kingdom is “liberalizing.” They announced that women in their country would be allowed to drive. But they won’t be.

It has never been official Saudi law that women can’t drive in the Kingdom. But women who applied for licenses were rejected and didn’t get them. And women who drove were arrested. The theory is that women who drove would be immodest and whores and have contact with men who weren’t relatives and sleep around. Also, it was (and still is) thought that women getting any taste of freedom and liberalism would demand more and more and more until Saudi Arabia became the Red District in Amsterdam.

And that’s why, even if the Saudi royal rulers follow through on their promise to allow women to drive, they still won’t be able to drive. You see, it is and remains law that Saudi women cannot go anywhere without a male guardian–usually an adult male family member. Salman and Muhammad haven’t announced any plans to change the male guardian rule. So while Saudi women may be able to drive, they really won’t be able to do so freely and independently. They will only be able to drive with a male guardian . . . if and when the male guardian is available and willing to go along. The Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. claimed that the male guardian rule won’t be enforced for female drivers, but most Saudi authorities and those close to the royals say this rule remains in effect, and Saudi police won’t look the other way except on an “ad hoc” basis (whatever that means).

And there’s more.

Yesterday, when the Saudi government announced the alleged change allowing female drivers, the government also announced the change won’t actually go into effect. They say women won’t be free to drive until June 2018. And even then, that actually isn’t a certainty. The Kingdom will first put together committees to study the “feasibility” of the matter. If this were a done deal, why the need for committees to “study” it? What’s to study about allowing women to drive?

So, wait until June 2018 and see if women are actually allowed to drive . . . alone . . . wherever they want . . . without a male guardian.

Or, rather, don’t hold your breath.

Oh, one other thing: even if women in Saudi Arabia are allowed to drive freely and alone, one thing will be evergreen: they still hate Jews and want to wipe ’em off the map. And Christians, you aren’t so high on their list, either.

Driving privileges won’t change that mindset. Count on it. This is a country whose population is dominated by Bin Laden and ISIS supporters and comrades-in-jihad.

When a woman on the streets of Riyadh can freely say, “I support Israel and condemn Muslim honor killings”–or even just, “the Holocaust happened”–and go unharmed thereafter, then we will know Saudi Arabia is liberalizing.

Until then, nothing has changed. And it probably never will.

Perhaps I’m being overly conspiratorial, but I’m wondering whether there might be a broader purpose to this propaganda — such as being the prelude to a new ‘peace plan’ by the U.S., or using this ‘progress’ as an excuse not to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Off topic, but I wih all the Jews on this website an easy fast.

    Thank you for reminding us that tomorrow night is Yom Kippur.

    Not being Jewish, I completely missed Rosh Hashanah.

    Last Yom Kippur, which occurred on Columbus Day, I was on the operating table at the University of Utah Medical Center having L-4 and L-5 in my lumbar spine surgically fused.

    I join with you in wishing our Jewish friends, “G’mar Hatima Tova”.

Thank you, Debbie. I’ve been seeing the headlines on this story for the past couple days. I decided not to read it, because I knew it had to be bullcrap. And besides, you KNOW that ANY time women in Saudi Arabia get the “right” to do anything, even sneeze, . . .

there has to be a catch, right?

I’m glad Debbie decided to post on it. We all know every time a magician reaches in to a hat, he’s going to pull out a rabbit, yes? Well, I like the times that Debbie lets us know when in fact he’s going to pull out a one legged giraffe.

Thank you, Debbie, for keeping it real, in a fake, fake, fake ass world.

Hi Dear Debbie! Thanks for sharing i learn so much from you Dear Debbie! Unbeliveable again Thank you Dear Debbie! God Bless America;USA; God bless Israel;My Respect Dear Debbie!: Tirdad Gharib!

You’re so right Debbie. Until the women in that rat hole country can drive down the highway alone while blasting and singing a tune like Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” then nothing will change. Not that I’ve ever done that in my car before. Ha, ha.

Hey KenB, I’m eating a salad of a can of Mackerel, chopped Red Bell Pepper, Bowtie pasta, pressed garlic with canola oil and apple cider vinegar. Thanks to you, a mouthful nearly got all over my aging laptop. Just in time I turned back to the bowl.

Don’t worry, folk, I managed not to spit the food out, but nearly choked to death in the process.

Some around here might call that an “improvement.” LOL!!!

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 28, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    Hey Alfredo what you were eating sounds good my man. Tonight is pizza night because my much better half is working late. Oh and sorry about your laptop but could you imagine some “liberated” Saudi girl playing that tune in her Studebaker…LOL!

Hmmmmmmmm, . . .

y’know, . . .

DOUBLE hmmmmmmmm.

So, this isn’t exactly a case of Saudi men singing an old Beatles tune, then?

“Baby you can drive my car.”

Well, yeah, if he’s riding shotgun, . . .

This web site appears to be under attack from the medical community, particularly Russians. I saw an episode of NCIS last night that said 80% of ransomware attacks are of Russian origin. Is that true?

Anyway, I’m sure Debbie will clean up the previous article, and the one before the movie review. Guess these people figure their medical practices will get good response from this site, LOL!!!

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 29, 2017 at 9:33 am

A happy Yom Kippur to you Ms Schlussel. Hey does anyone remember that stunt of an all woman city in Saudi Arabia from some years ago?. This, like that, is also pure B.S.Why they behave like this is just disturbing. Especially when you read Scripture and realize the Arab race is part Jewish, founder was Ishmael, son of Abraham.I think anyway.

Robert Swords on September 29, 2017 at 3:06 pm

I am shocked that Debbie is skeptical of this landmark new development from Saudi Arabia. But shocked in a Claude Raines kind of way. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you don’t know Humphrey Bogart movies.)

I, for one, am very excited about the progress being made in the lovely land of Saudi Arabia, but, unfortunately, in addition to the issues that Debbie raised, there’s another catch to the new law allowing women to drive. If women now choose to drive in Saudi Arabia, they must pay the required auto insurance, which for females currently costs, on average, 118,540 Saudi riyal (or about $32,000 US), while the premiums for males are about 6% of that amount.

Nonetheless, if this splendid progress keeps up, who knows, maybe the Saudi government will someday permit prisoners to smoke a cigarette before they’re beheaded. There is, indeed, much reason to be optimistic about progress in Saudi Arabia. We should celebrate their progress, not attack them for it.

Annnnnnnnnnnnd, . . .

with that post, Mr. Adamo effectively puts to rest any notions I had of seeing YouTube videos of delicious Saudi chicks in hot pants and halter tops driving around blasting “Little Old Lady from Pasadena.”

Thanks a heap, buddy, I owe you a cigar.


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 29, 2017 at 6:11 pm

When I see Saudi women in dark sunglasses driving across the Saudi highways with the stereo blasting Ministry’s “Jesus Built My Hotrod,” then I know progress has come to that country at last.

While I’ve been a critic of all dar ul islam – including Saudi Barbaria, the ‘women driving’ thing has never been a litmus test for me. While it’s an easy point for Saudi critics, it misses the main point.

The entire thing about Saudi Arabia is that it’s a theocracy stricter than the Vatican (which is just a tiny part of Rome that’s cordoned off for members of the Papacy). Forget the Muslims for a moment.

Non Muslims are subjected to major restrictions and harassment if they tried practicing their religion even privately (contrary to what Adel al Jubair claimed in interviews when he was envoy to DC). Not only can one not build a church or synagogue or temple or monastery in that country: if one performs a religious ceremony in the privacy of their home, and the Saudis get wind of it, they’d be subjected to a crackdown. Non Islamic religious books, such as Bibles, Torahs, Gitas, et al would be confiscated, and sometimes, even burned. Even while the Saudis (& their other Gulf comrades) had been busy proselytizing & building mosques not just in Muslim countries like, say, Turkmenistan or Kazakhstan, but also in non Muslim countries like Mozambique and Cameroon, they do everything in their power to prevent any reciprocal entry of non-Islamic religions into their kingdom.

In some ways, it’s ironic to see the current Saudi-Qatar spat, w/ the Saudis pissed at the support to ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood & other groups, when the only difference those groups have w/ the Saudis is that they are more Communist, and would like to share that oil booty. It’s the latest in Debbie’s Alien vs Predator series, and it’s nice to see the Saudis bogged down on so many fronts:

1. Yemen, where they are neck deep in the civil war there
2. Bahrein, where they are propping up the Hanafa dynasty
3. Subsidizing Egypt, where they’re desperate to see the Muslim Brotherhood quelled
4. Losing badly in Syria, where their puppets have been slaughtered by a combination of Russian air power and Iranian/Hizbullah ground power

Hopefully, if the US replaces the OIC/Islamic bloc as the major oil supplier, along w/ advances in other power sources – nuclear, solar, geothermal, et al, whatever money even the Saudi royals get should dry up
