Witches, black magic and superstitions in Saudi Arabia.

Posted in Islam,religion,religious police,Saudi Arabia,Uncategorized by Save the Women! on December 28, 2011

Witch hunts are not a thing from the past? Not in the kingdom! They still find and kill witches here!!! As in the dark ages of Europe  the charges are often made up, or the so called withces are just simple tricksters.

Saudi Arabia is a very religious country so superstition and believes in witch craft is still fully alive here. Many tricksters make up potions and claim to have ”magic” powers. \And many people believe them and pay them lots of money. It pays off to claim magical powers. It is typical that in the kingdomthe witches who are caught and beheaded will be women or foreigners. That does not mean that there are not saudi men who claim to be magical but if they have enough important customers they will keep them out of harm.

 

 

It is scary to live in a country where people really belive witches exist. \And where they really have witch trials and kill people for something so silly. Not only do people here really believe in witches, they also believe in spirists called Jinn. the Jinn arein the Quran, because Mohammed believed in them and so they must exist.

Also people believe in the ”evile eye”. And they are always worried that jelous people will send them the evil eye or bewitch them.

It is very important you nevr praise anthing, especially not children, without putting many mashallah’s in between your sentences. Otherwise you will force your friends or family to give you the object you admire so that you won’t curse them. Or they will have to spend a lot of time praying to protect themselves and their children fom your evileye.
I am very insulted by this. But superstition is so strong and if you want to keep people around you happy you must remember to always put mashallah behind every sentence you utter to praise.

From the news:

An accused witch, Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar, was beheaded in Saudi Arabia earlier this week. She had been convicted of practicing “witchcraft and sorcery,” according to the Saudi Interior Ministry. Such a crime is a capital offense in Saudi Arabia, and so Nassar was sentenced to death. Nassar’s sentence was appealed — and upheld — by the Saudi Supreme Judicial Council.

Nassar, who claimed to be a healer and mystic, was arrested after authorities reportedly found a variety of occult items in her possession, including herbs, glass bottles of “an unknown liquid used for sorcery,” and a book on witchcraft. According to a police spokesman, Nassar had also falsely promised miracle healings and cures, charging ill clients as much as $800 for her services.
The woman was the second person to be executed for witchcraft in Saudi Arabia this year. A Sudanese man was executed in September.

The most prominent witchcraft case came in 2008, when a Saudi court slapped a death sentence on Ali Sabat, a Lebanese television personality on a religious pilgrimage to Medina, for making psychic predictions on a Lebanon-based satellite channel (the picture above shows Lebanese human rights activists fashioning a mock gallows outside the Saudi embassy in Beirut to demand Sabat’s release). Sabat’s lawyer told NPR that the Saudi religious police arrested Sabat after recognizing him from television and pressured him to confess to violating Islam if he hoped to return

a look at the kingdom’s past witchcraft cases suggests the bar for proving someone guilty isn’t very high. Witch hunting is fairly institutionalized in Saudi Arabia, with the country’s religious police running an Anti-Witchcraft Unit and a sorcery hotline to combat practices like astrology and fortune telling that are considered un-Islamic. they even have a hotline you can call to turn somebody you don’t like in to the police.

The Anti-Witchcraft Unit was created in order to educate the public about the danger of sorcerers and “combat manifestations of polytheism and reliance on other Gods,” the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

The belief in sorcery is so widespread in Saudi Arabia, that it is even used as a defense in criminal court cases. Last October, a judge accused of receiving bribes in a real-estate project told a court in Madinah that he had been bewitched and is undergoing treatment by Quranic incantations, known as ruqiyah, a common remedy for the evil eye.

In an interview the cartoonist Jaber noted, that most sorcerers both inside and outside the kingdom were charlatans that take advantage of illiterate citizens who believed they were afflicted by the evil eye. He said that such beliefs were more prevalent among older, rural and often illiterate individuals than with younger, educated Saudis.
“A while ago my arm was hurt and I couldn’t draw,” the cartoonist said. “Many older people told me that I must have been afflicted by the evil eye and should be treated by a Sheikh.” (so if a sheikh does magic it’s suddenly ok?)
“It’s a matter of ignorance,” Jaber added. “If people were more educated they wouldn’t believe in this.”

The evidence arrayed against witchcraft suspects typically revolves around statements from accusers and suspicious personal belongings that suggest the supernatural, in a country where superstition is still widespread. In 2006, for example, an Eritrean national was imprisoned and lashed hundreds of times for “charlatanry” after prosecutors argued that his leather-bound personal phone booklet with writings in the Tigrinya alphabet was a “talisman.”

A year later, Saudi authorities beheaded an Egyptian pharmacist who had been accused by neighbors of casting spells to separate a man from his wife and placing Korans in mosque bathrooms. “He confessed to adultery with a woman and desecrating the Koran by placing it in the bathroom,” the Saudi Press Agency reported, adding that books on black magic, a candle with an incantation “to summon devils,” and “foul-smelling herbs” had been found in the pharmacist’s home.

The cases against alleged witches also frequently involve sting operations conducted by religious police. According to Amnesty International, a Sudanese migrant named Abdul Hamid bin Hussein Moustafa al-Fakki — executed in Medina in September for “sorcery” — was first arrested in 2005 when an undercover agent for the religious police asked him to produce a spell that would cause the man’s father to leave his second wife, which al-Fakki allegedly offered to do for $1,600. The Saudi Gazette tells a story of a female religious police agent who entrapped an elusive witch by expressing a desire for her husband to be turned into an “unquestioning obedient man.”

There’s evidence that the cases may involve coerced confessions and miscarriages of justice as well. Human Rights Watch chronicles the plight of an illiterate Saudi woman named Fawza Falih who was beaten, forced to fingerprint a confession that she could not read, tried without a lawyer, and sentenced to death for “witchcraft, recourse to jinn [supernatural beings], and slaughter” of animals after a man accused Falih of rendering him impotent and authorities found a “foul-smelling substance,” a white robe with money inside it, and another robe hanging from a tree in or near her home.

There is no codified law in saudi arabia and judges can make up punishments as they like.

Women driving: Saudi Utopia

Posted in Islam,Saudi Arabia,women,women driving cars by Save the Women! on December 5, 2011

I don’t know if to cry or laugh. It’s too sad but also too ridiculous. How do these people come up with these things?

The latest on why women should not be allowed to drive:

If Saudi women drive;

There will be no more virgins in saudi. All women will loose their virginity. And all saudi men will become gay.! Women driving will also result in pronography and prostitution. And there is scientific evidence for all this!

Strangely enough no news site from the developed world quotes that scientific evidence.

However, I think the Islamic scientists and religious leaders have not thought this out very well.

In my opinion women driving, loosing their virginity and all men becoming homosexuals would result in an Islamic Utopia.

Think about it, I agree you will have to sacrifice some hymens, but that is a small price. Then at the same time al men will become homosexuals. Which means that they won’t be interested in having sex with women. (because homosexuals only want to have sex with men.) That will result in all women being virgins. Saudi women will never be harrassed anymore. Even better: they will remain virgins for the rest of their lives!!!!
isn’t that wonderful?

So let’s count the advantages; After ten years, saudi arabia will be renamed saudi utopia:

Saudi Utopia

  1. All Saudi men will be homosexual, they will have taste, they will be sensitive and empathic, they will be supportive of women
  2. Saudi men will no longer want to fuck women, so they won’t buy children in other countries. no more rape and abuse of foreign maids. No more saudi students who leave their girlfriends and babies behind
  3. All young Saudi women will remain virgins. For ever! Because ther are no more men who want to have sex with them
  4. all Saudi women can leave off the abaya and niqab because there will be no men who want to have sex with them
  5. Segregation is no longer nesseccary because all men are gay and don’t want to have sex with women anymore
  6. The muttawas will wear pink thobes, have well trimmed beards and hair, and will be doing their job with soft voices and friendly requests. They will smile all the time. They will drive pink cars. They will no longer harrass women.
  7. Now women work with men, business and science bloom. Saudi Utopia starts to make a mark on the world
  8. Saudi cleric will only quote the nice passages from the koran and hadith, Islam all over the world will become a warm and loving religion  Nobody will blow themselves up anymore for virgins
  9. Saudi Utopia will become known as the ”kingdom of true humanity and love”

I say: saudi arabia,

Go for the win!

Let Saudi women drive!

Saudi babies abandoned in US

Posted in child abuse,Islam,relations with Saudi men,Saudi Arabia,women by Save the Women! on December 5, 2011

I regularly recieve mail from women who have been in serious relationships with Saudi men. Even married. They have been left pregnant or with a baby, and the saudi man suddenly becomes cold and disappears.

These women are left with no loving support, and no financial support. And they do not want their children to grow up without knowing their fathers. But those fathers are long gone, And in Saudi you will never get at them. They are protected there. Most women told me they pay for everything themselves, even the pregnancy and healthcare and yet they do not want to ask for money. Only for their children have a father.

But, to you women, I say you should insist these men pay their right share for their children. If they did not want children they should have worn condoms. ( It is very unwise not to always have sex with a condom, because of sexually transmitted disease, and babies.) You should come together. Form a group.  You can support each other and help each other to feel better. And you can fight together. Together you will be strong, you will have power.

There is a facebook group allready: ”Saudi children left behind” this was started by a girl in \ohio. This is a good place to start from, but much more can be done!

You can also start a plan of action. of information. To inform other girls on campuses so they do not fall into the same trap.
What you women, those who write to me and those who dont, should do: is get together. \you should form a group. \you should get together and get a laywer and get media attention. Trust me it won’t be difficult. There are many ways to use the media.
7 nice girls with 7 cute abandoned saudi babies could be a good item for Oprah.

CNN will even be interested if you get a large group of girls with babies together.

Some people in the US are prejudiced, does not matter if you do not agree, use it! Go to FOX news and use a line about how these Saudi students get scholarships and abuse American girls, and abandone the babies. It is going to be an election year, these stories could get you a lot of media attention.

Now I have been told names some of which are from very well known important families. These families will not want a scandal. \the saudi embassy does not offer any help or support for you, but they won’t like bad reputation for saudi!

The Saudi government will not like this in the news.

With a good laywer you can get the financial support your babies deserve!

The view is getting dim

Muttawa update:

Now prince Sultan is dead prince Naif is next in line for the throne of KSA. Naif is ery able in keeping inland security, and very conservative. You know what that means in KSA! Now a while ago the CPVPV got a lot of money and expensive cars and equipment which made them happy. Now they are even more happy. If Naif (nikname Nasty Naif) becomes the king the mutts will rule!

In anticipation they are all over the place as never before. Usually in Jeddah they are rare, but now you see them everywhere. And to celebrate their future supremacy they have now a new rule:

If a woman’s eyes are deemed too sexy the muttawas can now order her to veil her eyes too. That makes it difficult to see in front of you but women should be locked up in the home anyways. And if she has to be let out it is better if she doesn’t see much of the outside world. That will only give her ideas of freedom.

So useful to show your personality!

I wonder if not sunglasses are good enough to hide our sexy eyes? They are easier to see through. Why does it have to be such oldfashioned things as cloth? Why do they not invent something which could be impossible to see inside and it airconditioned as well? |And which gets women to where they need to be?

Oh,  that has been invented allready. It is called a car.

And guess what? Women are still not allowed to drive a car. Because the latest reason they made up: if women drive cars then there will be no more virgins. And all the men will become homosexual.
(secret: a lot, really a lot, of Saudi men have homosexual relation allready!)
