MID-EAST CRISIS

Saudi Police Arrest Journalist For Wearing Makeup, Heading To “Homosexual Party”

saudi arabia gayA journalist in Riyadh has ran afoul of Saudi Arabia’s infamous morality police: The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice arrested the reporter after he admitted he was heading to a gay party.

One of the Commission’s patrols first spotted a car pulled over the side of the road in the capital city. When they investigated, members found the man applying makeup.

A subsequent search of the car turned up three bottles of alcohol.

“After verification, the man was found to be an editor at a well know newspaper…he was getting ready for a homosexual party,” reports the Arabic-language daily Alsaudeh.

Saudi Arabia, a U.S. “ally” in the Middle East, criminalizes homosexuality—with punishments ranging from fines and prison sentences to lashings and even execution.

Saudi Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz Bin Nasir, who was convicted of sexually assaulting and murdering his male aide in Britain in 2010, recently returned to the country to complete his prison sentence.

      Yeah, it’s so great to have such an “ally” in the middle east. That ally where most of the 911 highjackers came from.

      @Stache1: Good thing people don’t count the massacre of nearly 100,000 people pointlessly in 2 wars by America and their allies in the region in the same way isn’t it.

      Or doesn’t it apply because they’re brown and we are white?

      As I’ve said before: although Western countries aren’t paradise, they are a lot better than some places…
