I see nothing wrong here.

The subject line is what made the story for me. Heh.

Time the Christians started laying down the law with their children in similar fashion.

This father is a testament to good parenting!

yeah, it would probably be funnier if the girl wasn't, like, you know, dead.

but whatevs...

the article repeatedly refers to facebook as "the social notworking site," which is funny but i think unintentional.

after reading the whole article, i came away with the feeling that the only way to be safe in saudi arabia is to drink saltpeter with your morning coffee everyday.

He was mad she didn't use Burqabook.

dude, this is The Slog. Since when are we apologizing for cruelty? Seriously.

The country’s clerics warn the people time and again that Facebook and other not-working sites are the root of all evil, especially when it comes to wayward yoof, who are never allowed out alone or unsupervised under strict Wahhabi Islamic law.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

And I'm glad somebody knows how to deal with blatant sock-puppetry on not-working sites.

I'm so torn over this- on one hand, I feel anger and sadness for that poor, poor girl... on the other hand, I can't help feeling happy knowing this dipshit is volunteering to remove his (obviously defective) line from the gene pool.

One repressive theocratic regime free with every purchase of a tank of gas! Details inside.

Our hearts are black as midnight, black as pitch, blacker than the foulest witch. But not Schmaders'. He's a teddy bear.

I wonder if there is a gene for compulsively flaunting your ignorance about evolution every time anybody anywhere dies for any reason.

Posted by elenchos | April 4, 2008 9:48 AM

Sometimes I have vivid fantasies of rescuing and subsequently indulging sexually-repressed Saudi chicks. These fantasies will now include Facebook.

Posted by Hernandez | April 4, 2008 9:53 AM

Thanks elenchos- Next time I need a refresher course on Evolution taught by a pompous asswipe, I'll know where to look.

I call shenanigans. This story is only tragic if it's not fiction.

There's no name of either the victim or the perp, and the text of the article reads like it was written by a twelve year old.

We couldn't have liberated this shithole instead? At least in Iraq, women had modern freedoms.

UNPAID BLOGGER, if you are joining the hot new SLOG trend of trolling for a nemesis (see fnarf vs Will in Seattle), you should not start with elenchos.

Work your way up. Start with a keshmeshi, maybe an unPC. The truth hurts, but you're not ready for elenchos.

Posted by Big Sven | April 4, 2008 10:03 AM

See unpaid blogger, now you're all angry. Don't get angry just because of something somebody said on the internet, OK?

Posted by elenchos | April 4, 2008 10:03 AM

There's a reason why the Saudis continue to be the primary source of both funding and volunteers (more than 90 percent of worldwide for both) for al-Qaeda.

And now they attack Facebook? Neutron bombs are too good for them ...

My first thought after reading the heading of this post went something like: "if anyone even pretends to be offended in the comments, I am going to lose my shit." Thankfully, as Mr. Poe so eloquently explained, you guys are all dicks. That having been said, I absolutely love the hot new SLOG feuding trend. Let's all do our part by pairing off with someone we absolutely loathe and promptly responding to their posts with palpable rage.

Posted by Looptid | April 4, 2008 10:32 AM

hey looptid, fuck you for calling me a dick! are we feuding yet? can we, can we, huh huh please? there really isn't enough going on in my life now that the kids are in school and i've been banned from all the local dive bars.

Posted by ellarosa | April 4, 2008 11:09 AM

Big Sven is correct. This is just like the story you posted from Fox about a 15 month old be-headed by his uncle in Syria. These are propaganda pieces designed to de-humanize the enemies identified by BushCo and elicit the reaction of Will in Seattle above.

The Stranger likes to pretend it's in the know, but I'm pretty sure that you've been hoodwinked and are propogating Karen Hughes' b.s.

A dose of shock and awe is what that city needs. Bomb them into the stone age! It's the only way. As Unpaid Blogger notes, they're all part of the same gene pool anyway, right? All the "innocent" babies there are inevitably going to be Jihadists. Keel zem all!

@11: Is that from Legend?

Posted by Aislinn | April 4, 2008 12:39 PM

I like the guy in the comments thread of that article that quoted the Declaration of Independence. As if it applied. Funny!

Posted by DanFan | April 4, 2008 12:48 PM


Yes! OMG I love you!

Posted by Mr. Poe | April 4, 2008 1:12 PM

@26 - I don't recall the part about Schmader though ...

Posted by Will in Seattle | April 4, 2008 1:21 PM

That's because your brain replaced the processes of memory with pseudologia fantastica.
