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.

Good News; Terrorism may abolish the Veil 

It's always an awsome sight when the Imams and religious thinkers of our country start rubbing their two brain cells together, in the hope of igniting a spark. It is just dawning on them that having half the population's faces covered by a veil, might just be a security threat.


One small step for man. However, "terrorists in drag" are not going to be so cooperative as to present themselves at checkpints. They're going to be dressed as regular guys. They will slip into their abaya and veil, and strap on their explosives, when they approach their target. So how about abolishing the abaya and the veil altogether?

Too radical? OK, wait until the next suicide bombing in the teeming alleys of Batha in Riyadh, or Balad in Jeddah. Then realise that every other person is a potential bomb. The coin will then start to drop.
