How come Islam is such a lightning rod for debate. There are many Christian royals who don't follow Christianity, which is why we debate their flaws on these forums. Lol

It has nothing to do with religion....The behaviors of people are always closely related to their personal character.....

I could buy that. But some people equate another's religious choice with good or bad.

Saudi princess accused of human trafficking a 'slave maid' into her California home is cleared of all charges | Mail Online
Quote:
Human trafficking charges against a Saudi princess accused of holding a Kenyan servant as a virtual prisoner in her California home were dismissed by a judge today, after prosecutors said they were unable to corroborate the allegations.
The 42-year-old princess, Meshael Alayban, smiled broadly as she left the Santa Ana courtroom after the judge lifted her $5 million bond, returned her passports to her and ordered that an electronic monitoring device be removed.
Alayban had been charged with bringing her accuser to the United States in May, confiscating her passport and paying her $220 a month to work 16 hours a day, seven days a week in circumstances Orange County's top prosecutor likened to slavery.

When it comes to diplomatic immunity it has nothing to do with a diplomatic passport it all has to do with the visa you hold in whatever country you are in. If you work in the diplomatic sector like embassy or consulates you get the immunity but if you don't you don't have the immunity for example if you carry a tourism or student visa and break the law you will be punished according to law of whatever country you fare in.

And, if you are a Saudi Princess, you, probably, can break the law anywhere, as huge money flows to stop the accusation. It is all BS. It is power and disgusting.

I don't think love is what they are after. They have multiple partners, it is a merry-go-round. Power is what they thrive on.

Prisoners at the palace: Saudi princesses plead for help as they claim they are being held by the king against their will | Mail Online
Quote:
Two daughters of the King of Saudi Arabia claim they and their sisters have been held prisoner in the royal palace for 13 years.
Princesses Sahar, 42, and Jawaher, 38, said that they are being kept against their will in a guarded villa in the royal compound in Jeddah.
Their claims shed light into the usually secret world of royal family of a country where women are effectively treated as second-class citizens.

I don't doubt that they are prisoners of sorts. Being a Saudi woman makes you a prisoner by default. It is an ugly regime, but possibly not the actual regime, but the hideous religious rules.

I'm sorry who are you? And how long have you been living here in Saudi?
Please don't speak on our behalf since your not one of us..
As for the case of king Abdullah's daughters I'm sure there is more to it than this.

I am sorry to offend you, but if you are a woman and live under these repressive and archaic rules, I am sorry. I have met woman who have come from this region and are grateful not be there. No, you are right, I am not one of your residents nor would I be. But in defense of these laws, I think all fundamentalist groups, be they Muslim, Jewish or Christian are out of step with reality. And women suffer, mostly.

I very much agree with your comment. Since the very beginning of time and even today women have suffered terribly at the hands of men and power and will continue to do so until men start thinking with a more positive attitude to women and children and accept that all man/women kind are equal on this earth. It doesn't matter what color you are, what religion you are, what nationality you are, nothing matters until men change their attitude about women. Even today I see men who are so insecure about women having any knowledge on something more then they have. I know it just won't happen in my lifetime! And yes not all men think like that and there are few of them.
