Saudi Cleric And Others Denounce Women Serving In Advisory Council As “Prostitutes” and “Filth”

150px-muslim_woman_in_yemenMuslim cleric Ahmed Al-abedulqader is a member of the Islamic Ministry for Da’wah, Guidance and Endowments and he clearly has “issues” with women, particularly when they served in public positions.  Recently, women were allowed to serve on the Shura Council, a formal advisory body  to the King of 150 members who can propose laws and advise him.  It was a significant and commendable act by the King — a hopeful sign of reform for women’s rights.  That appears to be the very reason that Al-abedulqader and other clerics unleashed sexist tirades.  In Al-abedulqader’s case, he took to Twitter to call the women “prostitutes.” Dr. Saleh al-Sugair, a former teaching assistant at King Saud University, also went public and called the women the “fifth of society” for their historic achievement.


King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has appointed 30 women to the country’s previously all-male Shura Council in a move that is viewed as part of a careful and slow process of giving women basic rights and opportunities in the Kingdom. This modest reform however has met with a torrent of outrage, though others defended the women and the King. I have met many modern and intelligent Saudis who privately complain about the backward laws of the Kingdom. However, the response to this reform shows the opposition among conservative Islamic figures to the public role of women in society.

Al-abedulqader wrote “They thought they can mock the mufti by giving these ‘prostitutes’ legitimacy to be in power. I am not an imposter, and imposters do not fool me. For how long will the forts of virtues be torn down?” He then attacked those who defended the women as being unfaithful to Islam: “We have heard and read many insults against (God) as well as mockery against the prophet, prayer be upon him, and none of those defending (these female) members was angered.”

Then there was the Saudi academic, Dr. Saleh al-Sugair, who tweeted: “The insolent (women) wearing make-up at the Shura Council represent the society? God, no. They are the filth of society.” He went on to add “The fools of the Shura council, these immodest women represent the society? I swear by God’s name they do not. They are society’s scum, garbage.”

Al-Sugair has previously spoken out against hiring women in hospitals and asked such bizarre questions as “what is the point of having a male doctor with a female secretary?” By the way, if you think this guy is just some hateful wing nut, he has 40,000 followers on twitter.

  1. Uh, Rafflaw, are you being ironic? If so, I love it! If not, just a gentle reminder that women cannot leave Saudi Arabia without the permission of their male “guardian.”

  2. My guess is that these women are members of the royal family or their closest advisers. It would seem that there might be some unhappy reaction to calling the wife of the third cousin of a crown prince a prostitute. It will be interesting to see if there is.

    The Saud family has some problems in this area. They really want close relationships (with all its money and power) with the West but like to have the clergy around to maintain order, control the real religious crackpots (so they blow up Western targets & not SA ones) and to ensure the male hierarchy remains intact.

    Its a delicate dance

  3. what makes me laugh at those idiots is the fact that IF IT WASN’T FOR WOMEN. THE FOOLS WOULD NOT BE HERE to rail against… its ironic and funny how much hate they have for women…. yet they also hate or so they say homosexuals.. so that only leaves the fingers and vaseline . smfh

  4. Two faultlines of the Saudi Kingdom are exposed in this story.

    The first is when you make a deal with the Devil it never works out. The Saud dyasty gained power via their deal with the Wahabists, who try to maintain their bestial standards against any reform.

    The second is the fact that most of the Saudi Arabian clergy are more interested in maintaining their own authority, than serving Allah. To these sexually backward men women having any authority is seen as a threat to their power.

  5. What area the qualifications to be a US ally? Make noises that seem supportive while financially supporting terrorists and then tell us we are the cause of all the problems in the world. . It works for the House of Saud and it is working for Karzi of Afganistan and Morsi of Egypt just to name a few. The US is so stupid. It is time to run not walk away from the Middle East and get cracking on alternative energy sources.

  6. Honorable Justice Holmes – never forget that almost all of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi or that all the money came from SA & was funneled through the family of SA diplomats.

    These are our dearest friends in the Middle East.

    sorry to bust your bubble but all of the 9/11 hijackers were israeli posings as saudis,, hence the fake passports, the peoples who passports they stole were found alive and well… its alive and well documented…. 9/11 was a insurance scam also well documted…. between all 3 of the towers they had about 300 companies renting spaces in the towers.. it was losing millions as long as it was still standing….. and it was not blown up by a airplane but well placed thermite explosives…. hence the towers falling straight down. with white smoke around it and no plane hit wtc 7 so please explain why that was also destroyed????? silverstein and all the other jewish owners of the towers were paid 50 billion in insurance… and 13 yrs later still havent built anything there.. oh wait and also cantor fitzgerald the largest brokerage house in america were dismantling and since they had the best of the best of brokers, hedge funds etc.. they had over 600 workers and not one worker survived… because cantor didnt want them going to work for other brokerages.. WALL STREET IS A SCAM ALSO. but thats another story.. oh and lets not forget the fact that the plane that hit the pentagon only destoryed the accounting offices of it and that same day a rabbi who was the head accountant at the company disappeared along with 23 trillion dollars……

  8. Where is God the Father when you need him?

    Hey Pops !! I got a bone to pick wid you.

    When next you send an offspring to straighten us human morons out….
    PLEASE let it be a Daughter of God this time.

  9. Unfortunately, this is how the Christian West would have been 500 years ago. Before the Enlightenment(which the U.S. was founded upon) women enjoyed no rights and liberties whatsoever, and they didn’t even get the right to vote until America became secular enough around 1920, for that to happen. Whenever religion is powerful enough, women, gays and other groups will be discriminated against and persecuted.

  10. Justice Holmes, there were no “terrorists” until the US created them, by invading their countries, monopolizing their resources, overthrowing their governments, murdering their population, torturing them, displacing them, disrespecting their culture, destroying their infrastructure, and occupying their holy and sacred lands, drone strikes from afar, ad nauseum. How would the people of the usa think and feel if any ONE of these crimes against humanity had been committed against them? Yet this “Christian country” has no concern if the usa does it to others. Nice set of values, eh?

  11. “[F]ilth of society”, eh? At least he didn’t Sugair coat it. As for Saudi Arabia, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: they should have been annexed the instant we found out it was Saudi money and manpower behind the WTC attack. Riyadh should be smoldering rubble occupied by forces and their country and assets should be forfeit. No rebuilding. No giving them their country back. Screw ’em.

    That would be justice.

  12. Perhaps one day the USA will wise up and expand the domestic applications of natural gas to completely phase out all imported oil. All vehicles, for example, should be run on a combination of natural gas and electricity. Oil is incredibly expensive and wasteful. Even President Obama has recognized that US natural gas development could be the most powerful economic force since the Internet. That would be the beginning o the end for the Saudis and their ilk.

  13. I told you to close those GODDAMNED CHURCHES. to give all that is GODS to GOD. means that the churches are supposed to have a sign on the door giving the height to the highest girder so you can hang them. it is written that the church will get its affairs in order means that they will file all papers with all I own, publicly. it will include everything that has a christian name, to include lending institutions, arenas, schools, store chains, farms, t.v. stations, radio stations, etc…, then the clergy, and all those who stole from god are supposed to hang themselves.

    which would you rather do? spend eternity in solitary in purgatory, or go to eternal pain and darkness outside the universe to the bottomless pit, while knowing that those that are true to GOD and pass judgement can, be sent back to be born again? you make the decision for eternity.

    the church has said that they will crucify MY SON again, in person, years ago, and THEN LIE ABOUT IT, as they do NOW! the whole world will go to hell before I give in. to follow GOD means to do what!!!

    THE BIBLE SAYS THAT the heads of the beast will be taken and put in YOUR museum that I AM going to build so the world will not say, “the” IT NEVER HAPPENED BULLSHIT AGAIN. THAT IT WILL TAKE SEVEN MONTHS TO BURY THE DEAD is still being taught by the antichrist… which is only part of the prophecy… they deny GOD is here also. so they should not be that difficult to find since they have been ruling since the first public sighting of jesus in phoenix in a store…
    …they changed it to line their pockets and the IRS permits the theft along with FBI. does anybody wonder why a church would be buying windshield washing fluid to give away to in Jesus name and claim that JESUS is not here.

    THE clergy ALSO twisted it to make the clergy look like they know GOD, and JESUS, and tell you they hear JESUS MOTHER telling them what to do. they say that I don’t have mental telepathy, but they do? so who is the wolf in sheep’s clothing usurping the power of GOD.

    for all those that are the unknowing the church will be caught in a stooper. ( the crouchs) the head of the beast will be made known bi name. ( bi not misspelled)

    a beautiful angel that would claim (to save) your souls. when it is properly written that all men will be judged BY GOD in all religions. THE BIBLE SAYS that I will take satans (plural) head. (that you already know) the only things that clergy tell you is that GOD would not do such a thing.

    clergy say that GOD is unchanging…
    …clergy want to change the PROPHET, the PROPHET is GOD. WHO sent in HIS hair to verify dna while the clergies say it has some magical powers.

    they are called televangelists meaning that it is the ones on television which will include glen beck, (beckon call came from a mormon prophecy like mitt rome knee), whereas the pope was said to resign in the time of CHRIST.

    Nostradamus:

    …two burials would be made at sea bin laden and the pope.

    …traverse city mi will burn…

    the prophecies include every religion ever, so that one religion could NOT take over the world, but they all claim to know GOD. knowing how to keep satan at bay, and when to passover from one religion to another, knowing that no religion is true to GOD, which includes Indian legends about the manitous, which is just one definition of five smooth stones written in THE BIBLE. every church failed to describe the five smooth stones in Heaven, …on earth as it is in HEAVEN.
    so the GRAND TRAVERSE, is told in legends also. all religions were put on the earth so you would have something to study to follow GOD using gods, with a map for GOD, NOT for any body else to use, so GOD could find HIS way to the promises. the maps that the churches use is many maps to lead the blind. by trying to explain they put you in the clouds with jesus. everybody knows the earth sucks.

    to find God is written so easy that a child can do it, and the clergy will tell you it can not be done, but that GOD can do anything…
    something should have clicked inside of you when you were a child that the preacher told you a lie, and the wolf was standing right in front of you. you ask the wrong question of the wolf and you got reprimanded on the way home for criticizing the wolves words from your parents. so who was weaker? the child spoke the truth and just learned to lie.

    when you become an adult you think that you are above the law and don’t teach your own children right from wrong. while written that children will be unruly. the parents then send their children to some one who makes money from them because they say they know GOD…, and it starts all over again. all the false religions give people a false version of how I really am. clergy tell your children that they can commit murder and get away with it. so who is killing your children?

    two of the prophecies from Nostradamus were fulfilled within the last month. so your ass was told what to do again, over four hundred years ago…, the promise that you will always be guided is fulfilled.

    your problem is with every religion trying to take over the world, and calling them selves correct. they all falsely claim to be “the only way to GOD”, and they, the individual will tell you are saved for accepting their way. you are the blind!

    in order to bring the world forward at incredible speed which coincides with astronomy, and astrology, are both used in the bible.

    the earth was brought forward knowing there would be wars to keep population in control, that would get you to the age of the pills, and the chosen one in the future would be known by names written in THE BIBLE. THAT GOD WOULD know everything and would choose them. knowing who their parents would be. their parents names. the names that they would name their children, which country they would be born in, even if that country was not known yet. knowing this is how the chosen ONE is known.
    My Name is encoded in bible so the proper officials would know who to look for and that the proper officials would not betray the chosen one because they found Him by name from the BIBLE, and did know that HE would become GOD.

    the phrase that GOD is all knowing…

    …a map would be KNOWN in the bible. places, names of places, peoples names, even if it was by using their own names to name the places, GOD would know who would show up to name it before the united states was known to be the united states…
    … the world trade center burning is another one of those that is written in the bible, and nostradamus also.

    GOD would be proven in time is written. and GOD is love, here for the here after, and every man knows what they are after.

    THE BIBLE SAYS that GOD has had enough!

    said on this site was to contact the u.n., and the president…
    … david did you do that?

    …that is enough for one day, don’t ya think! people now know something about the future, and THE PROMISED LAND. both are being destroyed!

    this is paul harvey, good day!
