American Woman Jailed in Saudi Arabia for Sitting With Man at Starbucks
A 37-year-old American businesswoman and married mother of three is seeking justice after she was thrown in jail by Saudi Arabia's religious police for sitting with a male colleague at a Starbucks coffee shop in Riyadh, according to a report in The Times of London on Thursday.

Yara, who does not want her last name published for fear of retribution, was bruised and crying when she was freed from a day in prison after she was strip-searched, threatened and forced to sign false confessions by the Kingdom's "Mutaween" police, The Times reported.

"Some men came up to us with very long beards and white dresses. They asked 'Why are you here together?'. I explained about the power being out in our office. They got very angry and told me what I was doing was a great sin," recalled Yara, who wears an abaya and headscarf, like most Saudi women.

The men were from Saudi Arabia's Commission for Promotion ...

Sounds like religion of works done in fear gone to the extreme. I rejoice in the Gospel of the grace of God through the Lord Jesus. "We maintain a man is justified by faith apart from works of the law" because "by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourelves." I'd rather be doing works out of a pure heart instead of a fear-filled heart. I wonder who these women are more afraid of? Allah or this group of men who think they are carrying out Allah's will? And isn't Allah confessed as merciful and compassionate? So whence this abuse of the women? Is there space for repentance and forgiveness? Apparently not.

"she was strip-searched, .... by the Kingdom's "Mutaween" police"

These men "with very long beards and white dresses" obviously weren't all that concened for modesty and chastity.

I agree with Dr John. She should not have gone there. Employees of American or other western companies should refuse to go to Saudi. But that would cost them their career progression of course.

So how does one manage in such a confusing state? One minute you feel at home; the next you are thrown in jail for feeling at home. Makes you really want to leave home doesn't it?

Hillary and her staff will have trouble with their foreign policy. I wonder how the Saudis will adjust to her "Pant-suits". This will put their "habib" in a bunch! It will be fun to watch what she does with her "PC". Maybe she will just send Bill - "Ole Step and Fetch It". . . He's in the dog house now.

She forgot that she wasn't in the USA or should I say the Union of North America? So much for "Sharai Law". Sounds attractive doesn't it?

She wore the garb - had all the outward appearance - but perhaps that's as far as her education went.
Sorry, no sympathy here.
No doubt she was told by her employer to wear the garb, for pc's sake. Perhaps when Arab women are here, they should be required to remove the garb. (for pc's sake)

Sorry, no sympathy for Dr. John's position.

"The men were from Saudi Arabia's Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, a police force of several thousand men charged with enforcing dress codes, sex segregation and the observance of prayers."

I wonder if Archbishiop Rowan Williams agrees with this type of religious policing too? It probably also stems from Sharia Law.

You wouldn't think that Islam needed police to support it's application, I thought the Muslim was more religious than that.
