Saudi Arabia: Women face flogging and jail for checking husband’s phone

Women in Saudi Arabia face flogging and imprisonment if they check their husband’s phone without his permission, a government official has warned.

The offence would be prosecuted as a violation of privacy because it is not covered in the country’s Islamic laws, senior lawyer Mohammad al-Temyat has said.

    Jail may be a better option than husband-equipped home for women in Saudi.

    What will it take for universities to return their Saudi endowments in protest?

    Meanwhile the Toronto Star continues to make excuses for islam. They have a muslim writer today explaining the a woman wearing a bag over her head is not any different than a nun wearing a habit. Maybe someone needs to explain to the Star that a nun’s habit is part of her uniform so to speak as an employee of the church. And nuns don’t usually go around blowing themselves up in crowds.

    Islam don’t tolerate uppty women; they better know their place or else. All Western feminists are in for a hard lesson; assuming they are capable of learning even with that.

    I don’t really care how Muslims treat their Females -until they cross the Ocean.
    Then– It should be our laws.
    And we should Enforce these Laws.
