Top Saudi Cleric: Driving Will Expose Women To Evil

Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah al-Sheikh has again made a mockery of his own religion.  We previously discussed how the Sunni religious leader banned Muslims from playing chess.  Now he is warning that driving is a road to perdition for women and is a “dangerous matter that exposed women to evil.”  


Saudi Arabia has been under intense pressure to allow women to drive.  However, the cleric warned that driving would expose women to “weak-spirited” men  “obsessed with women.”  He also said that families would be constantly unsure where their women might be.

The Grand Mufti personifies the medieval mentality that controls the Kingdom.

Loujain al-Hathloul, 25, was stopped by border guards when she tried to drive a car across the border with a UAE passport.  She in custody for a month.

With all due respect to the Grand Mufti, the one “obsessed with women” strikes me as the cleric who thinks that women will be driving themselves to hell if they get behind the wheel.

    1. Not looking to debate Muslim tradition etc., rather just trying to find out what the misinformation was since it was dealing with one specific cleric.

      1. Start by studying the Quran. Not just what others state about it, often without having read it themselves.

    2. Since no misinformation was provided I’ll assume you retradted the statement.

        1. I don’t think you know how to retract a statement either.

          The Quran doesn’t address Turley’s posting where you said “This thread is filled with misinformation.”

          Obviously your mouth speaks before your brain.

    3. Could you provide some examples of the misinformation that is “filling” this thread?

      1. Well I could be wrong, but I think what Benson is trying to say, and very poorly, is that Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah al-Sheikh is invoking “proper” Islam — not a “perversion” of it.

        Of course, the “Koran”, like the “Bible” is a complex piece of work. And my view is that “The Book of Joshua” was never necessary and never should have been included in the Jewish or Christian religions. I’d like to the Council of Nicaea vote on that Book. Maybe you have it.

        And I suppose, the people who voted against it simply didn’t understand God.

          1. What is “completely twisted”? stevej110’s comment?

              1. Well aren’t you claiming that Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah al-Sheikh is invoking “proper” Islam? If you’re not, you’re not doing a very good job. But I’d be happy to read what you have to say.

  1. Women will be exposed to evil because they will be exposed to Saudi men. Das where da evil men arise. Saudi man is epitomee of evil.

  2. George, you’re right about the birth rate. It has crashed across all races and ethnicities. As more and more women enter careers and professions the birth rate has crashed. A good book on demographics is “What to expect when no one’s expecting”. Tha author is Jonathan Last. I read it twice.

    1. Sir, I have heard about and read the statistics. They are disappointing.
      Would a return to an economy which promotes family values instead of instant gratification help?
      Would an economy that recognized the need for parental… specifically female, nurture in the home help? Our industrious economy has striven to drive as many as possible into the workforce and wages have “declined”… or stagnated for decades. If our society could find itself in the moral mindset to recognize that young families need a little more help with some of the basicsdue to wage stagnation would it help?
      Would it help if all our children weren’t taught that instant gratification and that they deserve the newest and best all the time? I drove cars worth less than $3000 for the 27 years I had children at home. As far as physical possessions and economic security go I had few and none.
      That’s life. Our millennial s by and large were not taught those concepts.
      I enjoy what I have now. I earned it, I “did my time”. “paid my dues.” It makes the little bit more I have now all the sweeter.

    2. It just won’t do for Saudi Arabians or Americans to direct the fate of their nations.

      Westerners are being diluted out of existence.

      Obama was “fundamentally transforming” Americans out of America

      as his bio-father was “fundamentally transforming” “colonialists” out of Africa.

      Liberals and the teachers unions drill into us that extinction for America is good, right?

      You have to wonder when the American frogs will realize that the water is rapidly heating up.

  3. Please JT, don’t give the radicalized christian fundamentalists any more ideas. I’m sure the conservative christian fundamentalists are already working on it.

    1. I am pretty fundamentally Christian. I don’t have any problems with gays..ect..women other cultures or religions..Of the rare “radical” fundamentalist Christians…whatever they are?.. I honestly can’t say I know any. Those Christians I know who stick to their guns of radicalism… just like the leaders of Muslims… unfortunately the leaders.. are pretty much considered nut jobs and are politely ignored out of hand. Christianity is not a political agenda. Islam was, is, and shall always be a radical political agenda wrapped in the false flag of religion.
      Conservatives, of any stripe, don’t have any use for anyone whose worldview insists on I am right you are wrong. That includes all those sneaky little social Justice Warriors out there who believe that any means justifies the end for their personal selfishness. This is why the Democratic Party will ultimately fail from the inside out when the parasites of the in return circle can no longer rope in any new victim classes to “protect”
      We’ve got your number progressive liberals and it is going on our do not call and blocked lists.
      Have a nice day.. Thanks for the radical progressive attitudes which shall cause death by the usual natural causes of all socialist movements.

  4. Women are misogynists.

    Women hate women’s bodies which task women

    with childbirth and nurturing

    sufficient to grow the nation.

    1. There may be a small, but vocal minority of screeching women who truly hate other women who are interested in having kids. But these people are on the fringe, and they vent their spleen in a vain attempt to attract other unhappy, likeminded people to them. Misery loves company.

      I’m old fashioned. I think the primary cause of insanity in modern-day Western women is that they believed the lie that they could have a rewarding career (using their intellect) while simultaneously being able to do a good job handling the domestic and child-rearing responsibilities. Hiring out your house-cleaning and lawn maintenance is inconsequential; hiring out your parenting is not. Based on the behavior of students from K-college over the last 20+ yrs, it is clearly childrearing that has suffered the most. But the economy is bad for many sectors of society and for myriad reasons, yet costs of living continue to increase—so what do we find? A Catch Doubley-Deuce. Women are forced to work and the adverse consequences (including decreased fertility rates) will likely continue.

      1. We all enjoy your flowery prose. Belief in the two-child family is fraud and deception. Two-child families constitute a “death spiral.” Population is the first weapon in the defense of a nation. America imports its incongruent and unassimilable population. Find out what a “death spiral” is. There is no rationale for inducing the extinction of one’s race/species. Women are “fundamentally transforming” America. Women are free to benefit from affirmative action while they extinguish America.

  5. The combined European, Australian, Canadian and American birthrates are in a “death spiral.”

    The rights of Western women to drive and vote will be moot

    when there are no more Western people.

  6. Women are great!

    Women do not need unconstitutional affirmative action.

  7. Well, I suppose they do need to be careful. The way they repress and control, and neurotically obsess about what a woman is thinking, saying, wearing, talking about, whom she’s talking to, where she is, many women would absolutely rebel and try to escape the first second they could. Plus, Saudi Arabia is one of those countries where Female Genital Mutilation is still practiced. They are so obsessed with controlling sexual desire in women that they mutilate their genitals to make intercourse excruciatingly painful, for life, and childbirth dangerous, just to destroy their sexual drive. Sadly, Type III is the most common form of FGM found in Saudi Arabia: Type III: removal of all or part of the labia minora and labia majora , and the stitching of a seal across the vagina, leaving a small opening for the passage of urine and menstrual blood (infibulation). Oh, by the way, this “seal” requires a lady wth a knife to open the bride on her wedding knife. And then they control every single aspect of their lives. Many may not be aware that the Arabs used to sew up the vulva of their prized war mares before going into battle to avoid their breeding with undesirable enemy stallions. So this obsession with lady parts goes way, way back.

    There seems to be an intense pressure of neurosis about sexuality in Saudi Arabia. The men are neurotic about controlling women and ruining sex for them for their entire lives. And those in Saudi Arabia who still perform FGM cause them severe medical complications due to their savage mutilation of their bodies as children. But there is also intense neurosis among women in Saudi Arabia. It is usually a female relative who takes the girl child in to be mutilated, because she has been brainwashed that she won’t get a good groom otherwise. And even in those areas where FGM is not performed in Saudi Arabia, the women are so repressed and controlled. Foreign brides usually ask each other if they’ve “hit bottom” yet, because that’s the predictable course of their mental health in that forsaken country.

    Without iron control, I think that country would empty of women, hysterically screaming as they crossed the border. As a women, I feel so bad for all of the women in repressive countries like this. We women here in the West are so indescribably blessed, for the most part. Just to be born in a country where we have equal rights and the freedom to go anywhere we want and say anything we want is inconceivable to millions of women across the globe.

    1. Oh, I forgot to mention, that with all those loveless arranged marriages between strangers, of course they would worry about women talking to other men when they go out. That’s what happens when you marry a women against her will to someone she doesn’t want, isn’t attracted to, doesn’t love, and who tries to control her every move like a kidnapper.

      1. I’m a woman, and I have absolutely no idea.

        I do know that Linda Sarsour denies that any harm is done to women directly as a result of Islam. That such harm is cultural only and not religious. It appears that she couches her argument in such a way that it sounds like women have the right to tie a pretty scarf over their head in any style that they want.

        It has never made any sense to me why women would be attracted to an activist who was affiliated with Hamas, anti-semitism, and who fights for an agenda which would see women treated like second class citizens. Seems like the ghost of suffragettes past would be distraught. I have this strong urge to force her female supporters to watch Iron Angels, read up about the fight for women’s equality in the US, and then sit them down to watch thousands of hours about what actually happens, in reality and not Linda Sarsour’s imagination, to women under Sharia Law.

        Linda Sarsour Tweeted, “I don’t drink alcohol, don’t eat pork. I follow Islamic way of living. That’s all Sharia Law is.” “If you are still paying interest than Sharia Law hasn’t taken over America. #justsaying.” “You’ll know when you’re living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound nice, doesn’t it?”

        So I suppose the appeal would be to men and women who spend absolutely no time at all learning about the plight of women globally under Sharia Law, every single place where it is practiced. Plus there would be the allure of “free stuff” that seems to hook people who don’t use common sense. How many times have tax and spend policies been passed because it promised “free stuff”?

        Linda Sarsour brings to mind the phenomenon of women hurting other females. Take Female Genital Mutilation, for example. It is indisputable that all 4 types cause lasting harm, ranging from discomfort during relations to massive risk during childbirth. And yet, it is the females of the family who take little girls as young as 5 to be mutilated. They insist upon it, because they have been brainwashed to believe that the girls will not be able to marry well without it. Even in Iran, where so many Persians have sworn that it has died out, there are a surprising number of pockets where this dark scourge is alive and well. Linda Sarsour is fighting for a cause that, were it to succeed, would lead to her losing her megaphone, and her right to agitate. It would relegate Sarsour herself to her own home. Even in Sharia Law regions where women are allowed to work, they are not considered equal to a man, their testimony is not equal to a man’s, they need a man’s permission for a great many activities we are free to enjoy, and she would not inherit the same as a man. So she is working to erode her own rights. What a stupid thing to do.

        1. You are right with everything you say yet Liberal American women march with her despite the danger she poses to our Republic and Constitution. That alone would label Liberal woment as naive and gullible or just persons that like to follow a leader wearing a dumb looking hat.

  8. That’s crazy. It’s much more sane to eat wafers with glutton while pretending it’s the body of a deity.

  9. Sqeeky, 1st we let women vote, now they drive automo files. What next, they become Drs and lawyers. Where does it end?

    1. It ends in a trade off. The 10% or so women who would never be happy just being wives and mothers will be happier. Meanwhile, the 90% or so of women who could have been quite happy just being wives and mothers, will be more miserable.

      Which, if you will look, is exactly what has happened in the West:

      University of Pennsylvania researchers Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers studied the happiness of women in the United States from the 1970s through present day and found an astounding conclusion: the more society accommodated women, gave them jobs, and scholarships, and supported them living single, and encouraged them to pursue their own private dreams and goals, to dress and act as masculine as they wanted to, and to shun any ideas of universal beauty or happiness in pursuit of their own private desires, the LESS happy they were.

      From the paper’s abstract:

      By many objective measures the lives of women in the US have improved over the past 35 years, yet we show that measures of subjective well-being indicate that women’s happiness has declined both absolutely and relative to men. The paradox of women’s declining relative well-being is found across various datasets, measures of subjective well-being, and is pervasive across demographic groups and industrialized countries. Relative declines in female happiness have eroded a gender gap in happiness in which women in the 1970s typically reported higher subjective well-being than did men. These declines have continued and a new gender gap is emerging–one with higher subjective well-being for men.

    2. “What next, they become Drs and lawyers.”

      No, they are given titles through affirmative action

      as the birthrate completes a “death spiral.”

      1. George – it will end when they start Gender Studies programs in the universities and force everyone to take them. 😉
