It's common to come across other blogs written rather sarcastically like mine criticizing the powers that be and their ineptitude. But it's uncommon to come across a site like mine written from a Saudi's perspective about the Saudi Kingdom. Our Saudi friend calls it the "Magic Kingdom, where the Religious Police ensure that everything remains as it was in the Middle Ages. His site is called The Religious Policeman. It's very worth a visit. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn a thing or two."
In today's news, we learn that Terrorism may abolish the veil. Our friend Alhamedi writes: "It's always an awsome sight when the Imams and religious thinkers of our country start rubbing their two brain cells together, in the hope of igniting a spark. It is just dawning on them that having half the population's faces covered by a veil, might just be a security threat."
Interestingly, back when we were learning more about Afghanistan than I ever wanted to know about, I always suspected that the terrorists were having a free for all under those burkas. There was plenty of room for their AK47's as well.
