Saudi Arabia continued this week to prove to the world that it is every bit as extremist as counties like Iran and radical Sunni groups. Our closest Arab ally arrested a teenager named Abu Sin for engaging in “unethical behavior” by appearing in online video chats with an American vlogger named Christina Crockett. The video was deemed “enticing” under the Kingdom’s medieval morality laws.
The exchange between the teenagers were viewed as hilarious by thousands of viewers as they struggled with language barriers and expressed fake love for each other. Abu Sin – whose nickname translates as “toothless” at one point puts on a traditional Saudi headdress and sings Christina a traditional song before asking her to marry him.
While Saudis are joining or financially supporting ISIS, the Saudi police made the arrest of Abu Sin a priority. Ironically, he was on a live streaming service when the Riyadh police pulled him over.
Colonel Fawaz Al-Mayman, a spokesperson for Riyadh police, defended the ridiculous arrest and just good police work done in the name of Saudi morality:
“His videos received many comments and many of the commenters of the general public demanded for him to be punished for his actions. The two of them [Abu Sin and Christina] composed enticing videos which received thousands of followers and viewers from all over the world within a short period of time. Most of the viewers were from the Arab world. Abu Sin, nicknamed for his projecting tooth, became famous and received negative attention.”
Well then by all means arrest him. Thousands of followers and critics. In Saudi Arabia, that is all you need when someone denounces a video as “enticing.” Abu Sin could now be imprisoned for three years.
For those who want to be enticed, here is the videotape but I think you will find it as enticing as a Metamucil commercial.
