Do Not be Fooled

Saudi woman driver’s lashing ‘overturned by king’

Driving remains a banned activity for Saudi women, who will soon be allowed to vote

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah has overturned a court ruling sentencing a woman to 10 lashes for breaking a ban on female drivers, reports say.

The ruling, although not officially confirmed, was tweeted by a Saudi princess and reported by AP news agency citing an unnamed official.

The woman, named as Shema, was found guilty of driving in Jeddah in July.

The sentence came two days after the king announced women would be allowed to vote for the first time in 2015.

Opinion:

Do NOT be fooled. The sentence was overturned not for any humanitarian reason, nor was it the benevolence of the King.

There is a much darker and hidden agenda here.

Much the same as voting was allowed for Saudi women, it is a desperate attempt to keep the Arab Spring from Saudi Arabia. The King is well aware that an event such as this could be the spark that ignites the country
