The diary of a Saudi man, currently living in the United Kingdom, where the Religious Police no longer trouble him for the moment.

In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.

More from "Insultin' Sultan" 

who said that Saudis shouldn't be allowed the vote because they were illiterate and might vote for the wrong people.
The Arab News has now published his interview. However they rewrote the embarrassing gaffe about illiterates. Perhaps because The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) was himself illiterate. Allah may have spoken to him directly, but Prince Sultan still wouldn't let him vote.

Prince Sultan interview

I've picked out some quotes because they are quite revealing.

How will you know what the Saudi people "deem", without a vote? Telepathy?

Patronizing women as usual. The government will do "everything possible" except let them drive, let them work, let them wear sensible clothes, let them vote.

This is the old Tribal mentality. In a tribe of 2000, criticism was seen as disloyalty to the tribe and to the Sheikh. Doesn't work in a country of 20 million.

No names or numbers for the rest, just like the the Police State that this is. And no doubt God will guide them to the "right path" with the assistance of sleep deprivation and sadistic warders beating the soles of their feet.

So who are the "deviant foreigners"? Give us a clue.

Ah-ha. Now we get to it. It was the Jews after all. As we are continually taught in school, "There will always be Jews, and the Jews will always lie". Sultan, Hitler is proud of you.
