Man, they really invite their reputation.
Truly a great nation
Maybe Mike Pence was right.
I'm with Canada
Why do a lot of people still want to visit Saudi Arabia? Are these laws only active for their citizens?
Saudi Arabia is a horrible place. Literally don't do anything.
My understanding is that they don't really have a codified legal system and instead they rely on judge's literal interpretations of the Quran when determining charges and punishments. It is beyond fucked.
Ladies and Gentlemen, one of the best "buddies" and closest allies of the USA.
Like, I know we probably shouldn't be intervening in Middle East affairs anymore but it seems crazy that the world just lets this happen.
What a stupid fucking country
Still in the running for the worst country on earth award, congrats
But mainstream western media told me things were going to be great with the new prince, he is a reformer!
A lot of my friends like visiting Dubai, though.
They forgoed any form of logic or reason just to follow outdated teachings from the seventh century. I feel sad for these mindless barbarians. Europe needs to curb Islam before this sick ideology spreads there.
Obviously the pilgrimage makes sense.
I'm baffled how a country functions when something like this is considered offensive.
How's the woman though? Still alive?
I will never visit that country. There is nothing humane about it.
but the country looked kool in this viral tweet
I don't understand why so many people on this board express support, admiration and even in some cases love for Western politicians who have spent their entire career in power either sucking up to or directly supporting and making cover for the Saudi government and the hideous way it behaves.
Wahhabism at work. I don't understand people who visit these totalitarian shitholes in the Middle-East.
I'm surprised the woman wasn't jailed and tortured
I uhh, they arrested the man? Don't they usually arrest the women?
The country itself is a fascinating social construct - when I was in Dubai discussing the region's economy I learned you effectively need to duplicate all the posts in e.g. store in the shopping malls, since they are divided and e.g. male supervisor cannot go and check on the employees in the section for women.
They also mentioned how surprisingly Saudi Arabia is the only country in the region with poverty among the nationals.
Not full out wars or things things that would just make it even worse for those living here.
If people from the outside just went "Let's wait for them to do the right thing", who knows when women in the Canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden would have gotten their right to vote. Just an an example. And like others said, "intervention" comes in many forms. Not all are aggressive.
