Slavery in Saudi arabia

Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America
in response to reader comment: SLAVERY DOES INDEED OCCUR IN SAUDI ARABIA!!!!

Submitted by Kenneth T. Tellis (Canada), May 23, 2008 at 12:38

Slavery in Saudi Arabia has not diminished since the advent of Islam. That is why the Saudi Government does not permit reporters into the country. If the Saudi government permitted free speech and a free press, it might bring about the downfall of the feudal system that now controls the country.

Just look at how Saudi law denies freedom of religion and only permits MUSLIMS religious rights. Christianity and all other faiths are banned in Saudi Arabia. Those arriving on that feudal kingdom must get rid of their religious symbols before entry is permitted. If anyone is found carrying BIBLE, then the full force of Islamic law comes down hard on them.

Try to remember that is no MUSLIM country that respects other religions and the laws are harsh for those who defy them. Yet it is Muslims that go to other lands and demand religious freedoms, which they suppress in their own countries. Double stands are an Islamic belief and practice.
