it's horrendous, you're cut off, you're isolated, you feel alone.. its psychologically tormenting. It is a shame...that he has four grown women locked up.. because they speak of human rights


It appears they lock up their own people as well.


The king locked up and starved his own daughters back in 2014. Later their twitter accounts were deactivated and nobody has heard anything of them since.

Yet the western media has been strangely silent about it.

If any country (or rather government) ever deserved sanctions put on them, it is Saudi Arabia.
They let trump touch the orb--no sanctions. And they buy billions (and billions) of weapons.

The left loves islam.  That's why it's quiet about it.

Locking your kids up is pretty much as un-Islamic as it gets. Binary thinking won't get you anywhere.

I worked in Saudi Arabia for 3 years. People are generally friendly and it is pretty safe. You just have to keep yourself busy...watching movies on laptop, barbeque in desert, scuba diving, visit compounds and meet other foreigners (where you can enjoy a beer or so), visit Bahrain on weekends, which is very close, etc. Best place on earth to save money. It`s a fantastic opportunity to experience the Saudi culture.

Bahrain from what I was told is only two hours away (not sure if it's by car or plane) and my gay friend would go there most weekends to get lit.  I guess it would be like if you live in the sticks of Korea and went to Seoul every weekend to have fun.

Hence the honor killings, cutting off women's genitals, and women needing a man's permission to go out of the house.  Of course feminists never protest this.   Speaking up for people's rights makes you a bigot evidently according to hateful antifa and sjw idiots.

Why, why, why, why do people insist on putting things in either a left or right category? That's the issue.

When you identify as liberal or a leftist you're adopting a stance before even hearing the argument, it's like Nationalism, you automatically take the side of one of your countrymen, even if they're wrong.
Likewise, the argument goes for calling yourself conservative.

The world is not so black and white.

This.

Politics is degrading into choosing a side and defending it against reason.
Is like a football rivalry!

If it is so "un-islamic", why does lack of human rights characterize the islamic world?

And always has done. Its not a "rare exception", it is the rule.

I have been working in Saudi since 2015 and so far it has been great. Respect the culture and your life will be a breeze.
So safe to live here. Getting used to the weather. I f you like drinking yourself to a stupour at night then this will not be the place for you ; everybody else will love it.

But the culture is not worthy of respect.

As annoying and buttheaded as the Korean government can seem, at the very least they are 99% of the time harmless and usually mean well, and will leave you alone. Even in "tolerant" Arab countries like the UAE or Bahrain you aren't safe from Islamic fundamentalism trying to lock you up for no reason.

I'd take a pass on Saudi Arabia especially, I imagine ESL jobs there mostly go to Western Muslims anyway.

I don't drink myself into a stupour every night, but am still fairly sure I'd hate it
