  1. “The judge assumed that the buck—or Saudi riyal, in this case—stops with the husband, an ironic presumption considering that in the seventh century the prophet Muhammad’s first wife was his boss, Khadija, a successful caravan merchant who proposed to him. Second, the judge used the purchase of an extravagant abaya as justification for abuse when in the seventh century of Islam women of Muslim society weren’t even required to wear these suffocating coverings, which women in Saudi Arabia are expected to wear today.”

    As an aside:
    Passing the buick refers not to money, but to the “dealer chip” in poker. Passing it to the next player meant that one did not want the responsibility of dealing the cards. Truman used ‘the buck stops here’ to say he was willing shoulder the responisbilities of his office.

  2. SAUDI ARABIA does NOT equal ISLAAAAM

    This is an ODD Culture they have and doesnt in any way have anything to do with the TRUE teachings of ISLAM. Islam is a religion of PEACE!!!

    Men are NOT allowed to hit their women nor vice versa.

  3. I don’t know why so many ridiculous Saudi judge soundbytes are posted so often?
    We get it…Saudi is whack. It’s another day at the office for their judges, big deal. It’s obviously not within Islam to foster such lunacy. I don’t think you should place such importance on it, and if you do, you should try to present in more of the ridiculous light that it deserves.

  4. Assalaamun Alaikum,

    Yes Wahhabi Saudi is not an example of Islam, in fact it is an example of how you do not want to follow Islam…Saudi Sheiks also did a study in Saudi approximately 6 years ago that found that women who are not allowed to drive are the primary cause of car accidents in the “Kingdom”…Now do any of you suspect as I do that their results were probably predetermined?
