Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2015 v9p0115

Saudi Arabia is the second largest Muslim country (Algeria is the largest). Its population of 27 million does very well if a citizen is one of the 7,000 princes who can do whatever they like, and less well if the citizen is a man, men can travel freely and divorce without reason but cannot say a syllable against the absolute monarch or sharia law; and horrible for women who are treated all their lives like children or useful beasts of burden.

The very look of a woman is offensive; in public they must be covered completely. So poisonous is a woman that if she is raped she must be executed, even if she is only 6 years old. Because the law insists it was her fault. Always.

Saudi Arabia gets away with massive human rights abuses because it is swimming in oil, and ridiculously wealthy, and a major buyer of weapons, which the United States falls over itself selling to totalitarian regimes.

The success of religionists in planting the idea that cold-blooded murder of little girls and bloggers is holy has been widely noted. Religionists in neighboring countries have convinced young unemployed men lacking skills that shooting cartoonists and Jews and Syrians and Nigerians is good. And Saudi Arabia responds by building walls around its country, to keep out the fighters they so happily groomed.

Unedited, from the Saudi Gazette, Aug 19, 2015:
"JEDDAH — Makkah Emir Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, who is also adviser to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, has issued directives to all regional governors in the province to hold urgent meetings with tribal elders to finalize a document fixing a ceiling for dowry and discuss ways to end extravagant weddings, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Tuesday.
In a cable sent to the governors, Prince Khaled said he had noticed some families had been demanding high dowries for their daughters, eventually leading to an increase in spinsterhood in the country.
He said the situation required the intervention of the governors, who shall prepare a document specifying the maximum amount of dowry to be paid to different categories of brides after consultations with the tribal leaders and sheikhs.
Prince Khaled suggested that the dowry for a virgin must be fixed at a maximum of SR50,000 and for a divorcee at SR30,000.
A recent study indicated that the number of spinsters in the Kingdom nearly tripled to 4 million in 2015 from less than 1.5 million in 2010. Sociologists have attributed the rise in spinsterhood in the Kingdom to demands of high dowries and rising marriage expenses."

Dr Susanna: In Aug 2015, approx 4 SR to 1 USD. So a virgin will cost you approx USD12,500 and a divorcee will cost you approx USD7,500. Personally, I am cheering the virgins and urging them to escape being owned any way they can. Especially by ISIS.
