Saudi Arabian religious police arrest American woman

An American business woman in Saudi Arabia went into a Starbucks in Riyadh, with male colleagues, and got arrested by the religious police (Saudi Arabia's Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice), for being seen in public with males she is not related to. She was taken before a Saudi judge who said, "you are sinful and you are going to burn in hell." After a day she gets out of jail and vows to in Saudi Arabia to fight for women's rights. Does she think she is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King or Mahat Maghandi?

Then the American Embassy said they were going to file a report. That will teach 'em.

The article was in a British newspaper as political correctness would not allow such an article to be printed in the United States.
