How Many CPVPV Members Would it Take to rewrite the Declaration of Human Rights?!!

I know I haven’t been blogging at all lately and also I know that talking about the religious police in Saudi Arabia is cliched and over consumed but the above clip was just too provocative to sit it through and let it pass without blogging about it .

This clip shows two members of The so called Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice restraining this powerless young guy, pinning him against the wall, searching his pockets, looking through his phone and slapping him around.

After Watching this shocking Video I couldn’t help it but to wonder how those CPVPV members would react when somebody faces them with the declaration of human rights and the number of violations they committed in Just two minutes clip :

  • “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood”; Haia’a Member No.1: Dignity!! Rights!! Equality!! You sound like those Secularists Are you one of them, Huh ARE YOU?!
  • ” Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person ” Haia’a Member No.1: Can’t you see, He’s Secured, Alright !
  • “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” Haia’a Member No.2: Huh; Listen to this idiot; he want us to treat people nicely, What’s the point of being in power if you can’t slap people around when we feel like it; “They should respect My Authoratah” !!
  • “Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law” Haia’a Member No.2: Oh my bad; Maybe he would like to be dined and wined before I bust his sinner ass !!
  • ” All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.” Ha’ia member No.1: Yeah, we’re equals and Elephants are Microwaves; LOL!
  • “Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.” Hai’a Member No.2: Good Luck Sinners; National Tribunals are our shit; They’re not particularly Competent but they’re ours !!
  • “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.” Hai’a Member No.1: Oh Really, Now you’re just criticising our job description!! ; Hai’a Member No.2: I knew it, Those secularists wanna drive us out of work, Maggets !
  • “Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.” Hai’a Member No.1: Huh,Independent,*LOL*, You just made my day you infidel Liberal bas***d. Hai’a Member No.2: *WHILE STRUGGLING WITH HIS LOUGHS* You want to be heard, “SILENCE I KILL YOU” !!
  • “(1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence. (2) No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed.” Hai’a Members Looking confused: Huh, What’s the question ?!
  • “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.” Haia’a Member No.2: You must mean The Phone; My Colleague is just an Angry birds Fanatic; and he was trying to help the boy pass a level; You Just wanna make us look bad regardless that we were just trying to help!!
  • “Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized.” Haia’a Member No.1: You’re just Making Shit up, What Dick.. Dic..; What is it, I can’t even pronounce it ; I bet it’s something you liberals talk about to question our faith !!

This is shocking to watch even for us saudis, We were always Optimistic but also skeptical of the latest alleged reforms of this committee Which stated that “Hai’a members may no longer interrogate suspects or determine their charges”; and now we watch its members cruising the streets harassing people and as we witnessed mixing it up with a pinch of physical abuse. All of that can be faintly understood when we know that they still believe that whatever they do is a religious duty mandated by god not just another daily governmental job.

And to answer the title, The answer would be: TWO !!


I Declare It a Musical Week !!

For some reason beyond my comprehension I wanna write but ,as usual, I don’t know what the hell about. So I thought I might suppress this urge by embedding some musical videos instead of boring you with my humdrum life and further tiresome conceptions, and Since It has come to my attention that I don’t have the same musical repertoire as the most, allow me to “enlighten” you with some all around eargasmic material.

*P.S. This Music would sound much better if you managed to get some Tetrahydrocannabinol into your system 😉 .

KKU Your Girls Are Gonna Save You !

On Tuesday afternoon 6th of march a few female students were gathered in the females’ campus at the King Khaled University (KKU) in Abha, Criticizing the deterioration of basic Facilities on campus like proper class rooms, Benches, tables, waste management; when they were verbally assaulted by the Female security guards calling them “Filthy Animals”& “Barking Dogs”. The girls responded to that by throwing empty water bottles & soda cans which was stacked all over the hallways. That was it for Tuesday .

On Wednesday Morning , My sister says that they were banned from bringing in or buying any water bottles or Any other refreshment; the dean instructions they said to punish them for throwing it at the guards. Around 10:45 AM the Guards grabbed one of the girls accusing her of hitting the guards and breaking the law, they were pulling her hair and dragging here on the stairs in the most humiliating way screaming and crying for help. Her friends, my sister included, rushed to help and pushed the guards away. This incidence triggered the demonstrations in the whole campus which was already sick of the corruption and ill-treatment of the dean and heads of departments . The girls were calling for an end to the university president Abdullah Alrashid’s era and held him responsible for all the ongoing corruption and deterioration for 13 years now.
An Hour later a dozen of security forces dressed as civilians accompanied by the campus security guards stormed the campus carrying batons started beating the girls which caused them to push each other trying to run away either to avoid getting beating up . That was, According to my sister, the main cause of fainting and some other injuries that said that it might reach up to 54 injured as Alwatan newspaper has claimed; the girls pulled themselves up and started stoning the assaulters with whatever they could put a hand on; until they succeeded to throw them out and closed the gates after them . The campus female guards also tried fire extinguishers and water hoses to force them apart but it turned out to be a bad idea as the girls snatched it and started hosing the guards away .

UPDATE 1  : Two videos Showing a broken window after breaking into the cafeteria; the other is showing girls screaming and gathering:

My sister eye witnessed the whole thing and got off easy with some bruises while she was defending her friends and I’m truly proud of her.

Personally, I think that If the government didn’t act and act fast, they could risk losing control over the whole situation; I know that We’re all used to be let down by our own country when it comes to rights and freedoms but lets just hope that it won’t this time .

Upbringing Little Dreams !!

” We want to live a little, at least to be able to respect the judgment day after “*

Upbringing little dreams and hopes In a desert, Ridiculous Huh !  I Totally agree, It’s as ridiculous as it sound, to grow for example a beautiful banana tree  in such unfavorable circumstances, you would expect such trees to grow pale and weak -If not dead in the first place-.

So If you were brought up in a desert , like yours truly, You are most likely going to face three different choices regarding the way you are going to spend the rest of your life: One is to maintain weak and bend every time a high wind blows; the second choice is to stand up straight and face the wind risking your own breakage; the third and last choice is to run and get re-implanted where you might have a fair chance to live and prosper. You might ask Is those three are my only options ?! Unfortunately the answer to that would be mostly YES; Because if you think about it, only big old hairy cactus trees could live in such dry Environment and survive to tell about what they might consider a “good life” !!

Three days ago Feras Bugnah ( @FMB4 ) and his crew were taken into custody after Streaming the last Episode of their show #Mal3ob3elina On YouTube. The episode started with a bunch of youths apparently from a high socioeconomic class reciting  the famous phrase “As long as you’re Fine , We are fine ” followed by scenes of  other youths from the other side of town whom affirm that they’re far and away from being “Fine”. Here the Episode in English Subtitles By @i_Ayman   :

The way I see it is that, if we lost the right of whining about life necessities and demanding a decent livinig then what we’re left with ?! Seriously What?!

So, The Latest News from Saudi is that you could spend several days -Hopefully merely Days – in custody for ” not being Fine ” Or for ” Pointing people who are not Fine ” ,  Feras Bugnah and his crew are still detained up to the moment this post was published !
