Holy Soap!

Did you know there was a Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice?

This is what they have done lately in Saudi Arabia.

How about helping their fellow male citizens to keep it in the pants on their business trips?

-With thanks to DG for the link to the Comission's website.

Love the song playing in the background. It has a french feel to it. What language is it?

This commission has been operating in Saudi Arabia since a long time. I think it's a good concept, all they need is a better training for their personnel to make them moderate because at times they are very harsh on people. Islam is not a religion of extremism, its a religion of peace & moderation.

Being harsh on people makes them rebels, thats why you see many Saudis doing all sort of bad things once outside Saudi Arabia. This in my opinion shows that the Commission is not fully effective, they should change their methods. People should avoid bad things because of fear of Allah & not the fear of Commission.

By the way, they have a website too :-)

No kidding! they put all these restrictions on women when it's the guys that get in trouble anyways (and not just on business trips, although they seem to be making big mardi gras out of them)!

Leon, welcome! I believe the song is sung in Yiddish.

DG lol thanks for the link. I will add it to the post. And yes people should do things out of belief and not fear of some body of people who are no better than anyone else.

Musical chef, good to have you here! Tell me about it! The only reason they restrict women is because the problem lies with the men themselves. Will they admit it? No way in heaven or hell.

As for the "trend" in saudi where men go for men. Tell me what man will be attracted to a woman when she is depicted as such a stupid, unintelligent, dependant, ignorant, sexually enticing, fitnah spreading creature?

No wonder men fall for men over there. The man in all his "glory".

It is a frustrating country and frustrating ideology. The worst part is, they are digging their own grave. That society is heading for utter disaster.
