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.

One of my favorite Muttawa stories. Speaks for itself, really.

Mutawwa ‘Attacker’ Says He Was Framed

I also commend to you the website of John R. Bradley, under "Other Blogs" in the top right. John used to be a western journalist with the Arab News here, although he is now living back in the West. He knows the country well, and has some good, balanced, in-depth articles. I am aware from comments that he is not everyone's favorite, however articles such as "Are the Saudis Sunk?" give a far more in-depth background than I have the time to provide. Equally, his recent article "Prisoners in their own luxury homes" gives a similar perspective to mine on recent events, although the paragraph on "condescension" does sound like one individual scratching his own sores!
