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.

A Spontaneous Demonstration 

The Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah is supposed to be about strengthening ones' relationship with God. Not so for these Iranian pilgrims and their "spontaneous demonstration" with preprinted banners which niftily double as fans. They would like to turn a deeply spiritual event into some sort of Nuremburg Rally. It starts off with the sort of game you play at childrens' parties. Appalling. Nauseating.
