More from the home of the burqa- SMS to enslave women.

Reader comment on item: France vs. Niqabs and Burqas

Saudi Arabia has more ways to oppress women. None of this in the US media, of course. That might embarrass our enemies. Saudi Arabia, the center of the Islam, has now created a government-run SMS system, funded by the taxpayers, which keeps tabs on women. The SMS messages are automatically relayed to the husband so that he can figure out where his property has strayed. Women are legally classified as property in the Koran along with cattle, slaves- Saudi Arabia refuses to sign the anti-slavery conventions since Islam approves of slavery-, goats, and other goods that may be bought and traded. It is important in Islam, where a man can have many wives, cattle and goats, to know if his durable goods are on the loose. I wonder if the Western leftist, anti-America, anti-Israel rabble are ready to allow their masters to receive SMS messages when they stray? If it's good enough for their Muslim heroes, I assume that it's good enough for them, too.
