UPDATE: Saudi Interior Ministry Bans Protests, Marches, Strikes - TV

(Updates to add details that activities don't conform with the Islamic laws)

DAMMAM, Saudi Arabia (Dow Jones) --Top oil exporter Saudi Arabia has banned all protests, marches and strikes in the kingdom after small protests continued over the weekend in the oil-rich Eastern province towns of al-Ahsa and Qatif, interior ministry said Saturday, according to state-owned channel al Ekhbariyah.

These activities don't conform with the Islamic laws and harm the interests of the nation and the society, the Saudi channel quoted the ministry as saying.

Any attempt to cause public disorder will be prevented by security forces, it said.

Saudi Arabia's authorities on Thursday night detained 22 people in Qatif, the main Shi'ite town in the Eastern Province, after they staged a demonstration demanding the release of prisoners they say are being held without trial.

"About 200 people took to the streets in Qatif on Thursday night. The protests were peaceful, but still the authorities interfered, they tried to stop them and arrested 22 people," according to Human Rights First, an independent human rights group.

Tick tock.

If Saudi kicks off we might end up paying £10 a litre.

I'm sure a few beatings will stop people demanding freedom especially as protesting is unIslamic.

True enough but I'd be astounded if it really did kick off there. I work over there a lot - with Saudi guys as well as expats and they are the most bought-off people on the planet. When the King returned from his surgery in New York and recuperation in Maroc last week (having invested in world class healthcare in KSA, obviously) he saw the lie of the land and immediately started handing out whacking bonuses to anyone with a pulse in the armed forces. Add this to the enormous package of state benefits increases announced, the extra public holiday and the fact that nothing which is essential over there costs very much at all and you can see that it isn't the same as Yemen etc. Just don't ask about freedom of expression....

Maybe the price will spike upwards but who would actually pay crazy prices for their petrol? The country will grind to a halt long before a litre even gets to £2.

I don't understand it, why aren't the BBC reporting this, surely they care a lot about the plight of ordinary people as they attempt to assert democracy in the face of oppressive regimes.

edit: it's ok panic over, i found the small link at the bottom of the page on bbc news, below the headline story about the fight in libya, because libya is way more important than saudi.

If there's one thing I've noticed about people's relationship with the car, it's that the price of petrol doesn't matter - sure people complain and grumble, and occassionally sell their 4x4 but they rarely give up their car or significantly change their lifestyle (moving closer to work etc).

Most people don't need a car - they choose to have it as part of their other lifestyle choices (living far from work etc). £2 /litre won't change that. £10 might!

If only their Kingdom knew what they get up to in London on their 'visits'

Snorting coke and cavorting with half a dozen, non-muslim, 'blonde', top-class whores!

Getting pissed out of their skulls and gambling Saudi's wealth away in London Casinos all night etc etc

Any of those banned in their countries or against Islamic laws?

Sure, if being able to pay your mortgage rather than end up homeless can be described as a lifestyle choice

+1

I'm stuck without a car and it severely curtails both your freedom and earning opportunities. It's also unworkable if you don't live in an urban centre (which of course is expensive even relative to running a car in the UK)

Years ago my sister was going out with a young Saudi prince who happened to be studying at the same university as her. He had a house in Belsize Park, London and drove round in an expensive car on a forged licence. On the face of it he appeared to be a thoroughly nice chap who I got along with and on occasion was invited to join them at some of London's finest restaurants with this guy picking up the tab. One night he showed me a heap of polaroids of pretty girls of western appearance taken in the middle east scrawled with cheesey comments such as 'thank's Amir for your 8inches!' and he boasted to me that they were prostitutes and he was a regular user of them on his frequent return trips home. Remember he was telling his girlfriends brother, absolutely no respect for women and clearly none for my sister either.

A friend of mines girlfriend ran off with a Saudi she was teaching at language school witch ripped his heart out, but that's not the worst of it, he ended up getting a phone call from her in which she said she was now married, she then handed the phone to her new husband, who then told him your a dead man walking, so he then reported the incident to the police and they just laughed it off and actually accused him of racism.

He ended up being confronted on in front of his flat by her husband and another guy, luckily for him he's 6 foot one and trained in marshal arts, they decided they didn't like the odds. He kept on receiving threatening phone calls for about two months but its all quiet now.

About a month ago he met in the street an old friend off his partners, to be informed shes receiving a regular beating on account of his jealousy.

Honestly how naive can some people be?

My friends Iranian Ex forced his way into her flat in Warsaw and attempted to strangle her as she 'was his property and no one else would have her'.

He got a suspended prison sentence. My friend reckons if he would have been a Pole he would have definitely been put away however the Polish Authorities didnt want the aggro.

Think about it - Muslim, Iranian male in a Polish prison for beating up a polish woman....

I too have a friend who got involved with an Arab man...cant remember his country...but the story is much the same...Id add she was often locked in the bedroom when he went out.

I also viewed a nice rental some years ago, and asked the EA about locks on the outside of the bedroom doors...she shrugged, the owner was an Arab.

Of course not all Muslim men would behave this way but if you marry into Islam it seems as a woman you become chattel property. Mind you having a Woman Price Crash could have its benefits :lol:

Second National day of Rage in Iraq. Western media: deaf, dumb and blind

by Dirk Adriaensens

Global Research, March 5, 2011

BRussells Tribunal

DAY OF THE MARTYR, 04 March 2011

The second day of “National Rage” in Iraq produced again big demonstrations in all major cities in Iraq. The relevance of these protest movements cannot be underestimated. These protest are nationwide, not sectarian. The Iraqi youth, main instigators of this movement, are challenging the sectarian Iraqi Quisling government and counter American and Iranian plans for the country: no partitioning of Iraq, but electricity, jobs, clean water, free healthcare and education. No to corruption, no to summary executions and death squads. No to state-sponsored terror. These Iraqi demonstrators want a unified Iraq and want the money of their oil being used for public services. I’ve been following the events today with great admiration and hope, hope for change, hope that the Iraqi people can reverse - as one nation - the deadly spiral of ethnic cleansing, sectarianism, despair and the culture of death, imported by the US horsemen of the apocalypse.

Underneath are a reflection from an Iraqi activist: Asma Al Haidari and an account of our Spanish friends from SCOSI (Spanish Campaign against the Occupation and for the Sovereignty of Iraq).

Once again the Western media are strikingly absent, probably following instructions from His Master’s Voice.

My dear Dirk,

You have been receiving bulletins from me throughout the day which I know full well, you find quite dry and without any feeling or sentiment – well now I am writing to you to let you know what it was really like watching and listening – watching all these thousands of young men and women as well as the old demonstrating peacefully and knowing full well they are going to be attacked, arrested and probably in some cases killed for no reason other than wanting freedom and dignity.

I was also listening to their fervor and anguish which literally brought me to tears and broke my heart probably for the umpteenth millionth time since the invasion and occupation of Iraq asking myself all the time how can the world be so blind and deaf – and for the past two weeks I have felt that the world is not only deaf and blind but dumb also, with a very few exceptions , of course!

We started the Martyr’s Day, for that is what the young people have called it, with the execution of a young married man being taken away in full sight of his young wife and children by a force called Battalion 24, formerly known as the infamous, Muthanna Battalion commanded by the very infamous Raheem Risen Al Baythani who has commanded this battalion in Abu Ghraib and has terrorized its citizens since he took over which is around 3 years ago – before that he was in command of Hay Al Jamia’a which he also terrorized – infact, he is famous for terrorizing the areas he has taken command of – I’ve heard that he tells the people that they are all his slaves!

The young man, Ahmed Inizie Al Hamdani was found executed a short while later just 50 meters from his home….., in the village of Al Hamdaniya in Abu Ghraib.

Of course, last night it was announced that the so called government had imposed a curfew from 12 o’clock midnight, last night, to 6.00 a.m. Saturday morning throughout Iraq. They had also imposed a curfew on all vehicles in Baghdad and in all Iraq’s cities.

The Tahrir Square demonstrators were beaten with electric truncheons and clubs and a chase took place in all the neighbouring side streets , hotels and buildings! A number of journalists and hoteliers were arrested. Chased by water cannon and looked on from above by helicopters! Watched also from the Turkish Restaurant bulding by this weeks new Death Squad - they were the people who gave commands and orders to the security troops to shoot and beatup! Plaoma will have the details in the attached report.

In all the Iraqi cities people were threatened under pain of death and shoot to kill orders were given by police officers to their men in order to stop the demonstrations and yet people still came out and demonstrated in most of the cities – the most important of which were Baghdad, Mosul, Sammarra’a, Basra, Nejef, Deewaniya, Theeqarr. They all sang about Maliki being a liar – it is amazing how this man is so much without dignity – hundreds and thousands of Iraqis have been singing a special song for him about his being a thief and a liar for the past 2 weeks – anyone else would have resigned and got out but not he.

There are a whole spate of songs about him and his regime of crooks and plunderers now – I will be sending you some very soon.

Sulaymaniya – yes, I must never forget Sulaymaniya – brave Sulaymaniya who has paid so expensively for its revolt against corruption and oppression and who started all of this …. 3 days ago it gave its youngest – a 12 year old boy.

We, too, paid, yes, we too paid. Today a young girl, was shot by a sniper in Sammarra’a – and the snipers are all members of the Iranian Quds Army who were positioned on the top of buildings.

Today, the brave men of Mosul have decided to stage a sit in which they will not give up until their demands are met – they are holding it in the Sports Stadium. The neighbouring families have started keeping them supplied with food and water.

Already Mosul has paid up so many young lives – I will soon be sending you a list of the young people killed by security forces.

The press, as usual suffered today – three members of the press were attacked so badly by the security forces in Basra that they ended in hospital and a fourth was also attacked – we saw blood streaming from their heads and faces. One of them said that he was told that he was an enemy of society!

The press also suffered in Tahrir Square and you will be hearing about that in more detail from Pedro. Pedro was told by one of them that they were in touch with the UN representative in Baghdad and had given him a detailed report – I find the whole idea of the UN very amusing – there is an old proverb in Arabic, Dirk – which more or less says that you may go on calling but there is no life in the person you are calling and a stone would answer you had you called it!

The press was barred from cities like Tikreet and Haweeja was totally surrounded by the army and the police.

I listened to an old Imam from Kirkuk calling everyone to fight oppression of the Ashawiss in Kirkuk and the oppression of the huge army that has occupied Iraq – he made the tears come to my eyes and broke my heart – I listened to an old resistance fighter reminding the new pontious pilates and Judas Escariots of the 21st century – Dr. Salman Al Jumaili and Dr. Rafi’i Al Essawi who sold thir country, their people and their religion for a handful of silver and for a chair; he also encouraged the people to continue their fight and told us that we will soon liberate ourselves. He was marvelous – both these men were marvelous - their voices and words still ring in my ears. I also heard a young man addressing Maliki and telling him that he really is the most dismal of cowards – he was so frightened of people demonstrating peacefully and felt that it was essential to take such draconious measures and he wondered what he would do had these people been carrying arms; he paused for a minute and then told him we soon will!

Women – oh so many women demonstrated and so many women spoke and encouraged the young people of Iraq to go on with their brave fight.

– one of these women said that she had lost 3 sons – that no one should be frightened of Maliki and that his days are numbered – yes, it was quite an emotional day – something I don’t like expressing except to the people closest to my heart, as you well know- the people who stood by and suffered with us for our suffering for the slow murder of Iraq.

Again I ask, are the American Adminsitration and the European Community blind??? Is the world blind – is it deaf????

Well, just to update you, the Unions in Iraq are demonstrating in Tahrir Square tomorrow and Monday we’ll see demonstrations of Regret. (Regret for having participated in the general election and they’ve asked people to come with a finger painted in red!).

Sallams and Peace.

Asma Al Haidari'
