Saudi women with attractive eyes may be forced to cover them up, if resolution is passed

Just when you thought that the Saudi Arabian government's oppression of women couldn't get any more extreme...

'Women with attractive eyes may be forced to cover them up under Saudi Arabia's latest repressive measure, it was reported yesterday.

The ultra-conservative Islamic state has said it has the right to stop women revealing 'tempting' eyes in public.
Women in Saudi Arabia already have to wear a long black cloak, called an abaya, cover their hair and, in some regions, conceal their faces while in public.

If they do not, they face punishments including fines and public floggings.

One report on the Bikya Masr news website suggested the proposal was made after a member of the committee was attracted by a woman's eyes as he walked along a street, provoking a fight.'

I look forward to seeing the human rights protesters who scream abuse at the only country in the Middle East where women have the same rights as men, Israel, doing the same to possibly the most oppressively anti woman country in the world, Saudi Arabia. Of course they won't because they aren't really interested in women's rights, as much as the delegitimization of Israel.

I really do not mind if Saudi women have to wear Guinness Bottle outfits, if they object they can fight for their own rights. If Syrians want to kill each other I am prepared to spend time and money to persuade them to desist, and money to help those disadvantaged by the fighting. But I do not want my countrymen killed or injured in their fight, or my money spent on arms for anyone. I am truly sickened by my Prime Minister or my government supporting any side in overseas wars. Just look around you at the casualties we already have who will need support for the rest of their lives.
