A group of religious figures in Saudi Arabia have threatened to strike the labor minister who seeks to create jobs for women with “deadly prayers.” They threatened to pray that he gets cancer like his predecessor Ghazi al-Gosaibi, who died of the disease in 2010.
So what kind of jobs for women are they worried about? Women becoming executives, lawyers or doctors?
No, women working in lingerie stores where they will only interact with women.
During a meeting at the labor ministry on Tuesday, about 200 religious figures accused Minister Adel Fakeih of executing a “Westernization” plan and asked him to ban women from working in lingerie shops within a month or he will face their dangerous prayers.
The ministry began in 2011 enforcing a decision to replace salesmen with Saudi women at lingerie shops in a bid to create jobs for women and meet the demands of female customers embarrassed to buy lingerie from salesman.
So, Saudi Arabia once again takes the prize for being the worst conceivable place on earth… populated by the worst conceivable people on earth.
But the same same Western liberals who picked up the War on Women meme also make common cause with American Muslim grounds funded by Saudi Arabia which promote the Hijab.
But as Obama says, “The future will not belong to those who slander the lingerie of Islam.”
