DON'T INCRIMINATE SOMEONE...

Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America

Submitted by Yousef Al-Qatari (Saudi Arabia), Aug 24, 2011 at 07:50

First of all, The maids are being abused in the united states as much as they are in Saudi and maybe even more especially if they are illegal immigrants.

Secondly, The accusation is a little bit too far from truth!! I wouldn't expect "a climate of fear and intimidation through rape and other means." from a decent family who are muslim and tied to society and I don't expect a family to learn to be like this without having big wealth and political power.

Thirdly. We heard about the Indonesian maid who claimed of being tortured and had iron nails implanted in her body and amazingly she was able to pass through customs and metal detectors in at least two international airports without being noticed and at the end it turned out that she had said the same lies before accusing an Indonesian family!! and the story was covered up and no one apologized to the Saudis.

Finally, why don't you focus on prostitution which I think is the slavery form in our time!!
