Saudi writer: OK to sexually molest women to protect them

thA popular Saudi Arabian author of self-help books has advocated sexually molesting working women in order to protect them, as reported by The Gulf News (of the United Arab Emirates).

Women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have been the recipients of limited loosening of their lives under the Kingdom’s official notoriously women-oppressive Sharia’a Law civil and criminal system.

One of the so-called benefits afforded to women recently has been the previously unheard of ability to work at grocery stores as cashiers.

Regardless of how glamorous standing on their feet for endless hours at low pay sounds, Abdullah Mohammad al-Dawood, author of books with titillating titles such as “The Joy of Talking” has taken to the internet social media site Twitter to call for such working women to be sexually molested.

Saudi Arabia’s answer to Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Khalid Ebrahim al-Saqabi has defending the writer, stating that a proposed law protecting women from sexual harassment in newly mixed workplaces was “only meant to encourage consensual debauchery.”

By al-Dawood’s reasoning, by forcing women to stay at home and not work in close proximity to men, molestation would actually protect their chastity.

According to the Twitter watchdog site Twitchy.com, al-Dawood has nearly 100,000 followers on the micro-blogging site.
