Saudi Arabia Arrests Woman in Miniskirt, And It’s Somehow All About Israel


A woman in Saudi Arabia has been arrested for driving posting a video of herself wearing a miniskirt.

Saudi Arabia’s vice and virtue police have arrested a young woman who was filmed in an archaeological site wearing a miniskirt and crop top, sparking a furious debate about the rights of women in the ultra-conservative kingdom.

In a series of short videos posted online, the unidentified woman is seen walking through an ancient fort with her long hair uncovered and her midriff exposed. She is seen mostly from behind but in one clip she faces the camera and runs a hand through her hair.

The videos led to a social media firestorm in Saudi Arabia, where most women are forbidden by law from appearing in public without a long abaya and their hair covered by a headscarf.

Police in Riyadh announced on Tuesday that they had arrested the young woman on charges of wearing “indecent clothing” and were questioning her, according to state television.

A police spokesman said the woman admitted it was her in the video clips but said that someone else posted them online.

She said that she had been accompanied by a male guardian on the trip and had not broken strict Saudi laws that forbid women from traveling alone.

The case is now in the hands of the public prosecutor who will decide whether to charge her with a crime. She faces fines and potential prison time if convicted of flouting the kingdom’s morality laws.

And what on earth does this have to do with Israel?

Everything, according to pathological Israel hater Richard Silverstein.

No, seriously.

This is truly a sickness.

I suppose we are also to blame for the time he wore a skirt?

Update: Leading “women’s right advocate” and “feminist” Linda Sarsour has blasted Saudi Arabia – for something else entirely.

But not one word about the scandalous arrest of the woman in the mini (I assume because her way of dressing is against the Sharia law Sarsour wants everyone to follow).
