A long way to go, Ms Mohammeda

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

The recent municipal elections in free and democratic (only joking) Saudi Arabia reminded me of an old (1968?) cigarette advertisement.

virginia.adAll media and but a few feministas* applaud the result, where 17 women out of 978 female candidates (5938 men registered as candidates) actually got themselves elected. About 131,000 women and about 1.35 million men registered to vote and less than a quarter bothered to do so.

A certain Salma bint Hizab al-Oteibi became the first elected female politician in Saudi Arabia – she won a seat on the council in Madrakah in Mecca province.  Perhaps you recognise her in the group photograph.women.burqa

Yeah, a long way to go, babies, and don’t expect any help from your silly sisters in the West.quill.1

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    You mock, perhaps rightly, but it is a start.

    Western feminists are no help, but hindrance. Any Saudi man looking on what the mindless, arrogant, loud and mostly lesbian “leaders” are doing to the society, would have to think twice about women’s vote.

    Muslim women to vote? That’s against sharia and all Islamic teachings. When you think about it, democracy and Islam are not compatible. The Saudis are just playing with Western minds and having a good laugh.

    The supervising fathers, husbands and brothers are on the left or on the right in that informative picture?

    Wow! That looks like fun…no wonder the Muslim men go crazy at times…
