And remember, there’s no reason why we can’t bring elements of the Sharia to the States! Sharia Alert from the Kingdom of the Two Holy Places: “Religious police arrest famous actors, because men and women were performing together,” from AsiaNews, April 2 (thanks to Carlo):
Riyadh (AsiaNews/Agencies) – A blitz by the Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (the religious police, or muttawa), who early in the morning of March 30 raided a famous hotel in Riyadh and took away the actors and production staff for a television series.
Three actors and one actress were taken to the local police station, and later released on bail. According to a local newspaper, they are the famous Omani actor Ebrahim Al Zidjali, the actors Ali Saad and Fawaz Al Jaser, and the actress Sahar.
Local sources explain that the religious police intervened because scenes were filmed at the hotel in which male and female actors were on the set together. For this reason, Sahar was also taken to a center of the Commission where female officers explained to her the consequences and dangers of being with men in public places….
I am sure she is now all clear about those dangers.
