The US president Donald Trump visited the oil dynasty, while the world had high expectation to address the bitter reality of Saudi women who are chained to each other in the legs and hands in their dungeon houses. They spoke truth to power in front of the authoritarian Monarch Abdullah of Saudi Arabia to Channel 4 but the footage of the US president bowed to the tyrant caliph to accept gold necklace honor took women rights activists worldwide by surprise and disappointed Saudi caged women in the hands of their Walis or guardians. Donald’s full submission to the ‘semidivine’ guardian of two sites, not the lives of humans, triggered mixed reactions: joy from ISIS to anger from American white supremacists who voted him. His bullying character and grandiose chauvinism against the minority of his fellow Americans died down in his arrival in the Guantanamo Bay of Saudi women in the face of one of the most
Trump’s full submission to the ‘semidivine’ guardian of two sites, not the lives of humans, triggered mixed reactions: Joy from ISIS to anger from American white supremacists who voted him. His bullying character and grandiose chauvinism against the minority of his fellow Americans died down in his arrival in the Guantanamo Bay of Saudi women in the face of one of the most brutal oppressors of all times and in all places.

The US president’s first visit to the medieval dynasty- notorious of the executioners “the Land of Guardians” of which adult women are always badly treated and abused by name calling “ children with large foot” no matter how old they are, “never ‘maturing’’ among others have achieved little in regard to the women rights. They are always kept under the custody of the tribe, and the Imams to be disciplined by every male passerby of the Islamic faith seen them misbehaving. Prehistorically, Saudi was the graves of female infanticides and the epicenter of the honor killings that spread to North Africa.

Omar Binu Khadab sadly recalled, burying his lovely daughter alive while she trimming his untidy beard. Wahabbi Saudis inspired Jihadi John and other murderous cults that Saudi claim to fight along with global actors and it is an utter joke.
Nonetheless, nobody took Salman’s utterance of fighting extremism seriously when half of his society lying in bondage shackled. Saudi theocracy imposes Wali or male guardianship upon adult women graduates of Harvard and Columbia universities from the birth to the grave when Donald says “we don’t impose our way of life on others” hinting them to continue to subjugate their women. From the human rights perspective, his weak speech of mere generality “women empowerment” is unacceptable when matured girls with puberty are seen off all the way to the restrooms by their male siblings to protect from Jinn, Muslim ghost, from having sexual intercourse or masturbate themselves to remain sexually pure.

From the human rights perspective, his weak speech of mere generality “women empowerment” is unacceptable when matured girls with puberty are seen off all the way to the restrooms by their male siblings to protect from Jinn, Muslim ghost, from having sexual intercourse or masturbate themselves to remain sexually pure.
The women are kept indoors sealed off from air, and land on 24/7. Living in those hellish conditions, Saudi caged women who are treated like sex slaves had high expectations in Donald J. Trump who dared blasphemy- “I think Islam hates us” during the murky election campaign to dare once again to liberate the enslaved girls. However, the women feel disappointed with their last messiah’s discouraging speech to end their long suffering and set free the prisoners of the world’s largest prison country for women.
Saudi judiciary system and high courts are busy with sons impregnated their biological mothers or sisters following the kabt (or disappearance of women from the public) except the sisters and their female guardians in the household.
The homosexuality by Saudis seems imposed by circumstance, not a choice, and it is far more than the rest of the world combined! Bisexuals are the norm marrying once accessible to women for marriage.
Homosexuality is a relief mid-way course for both genders until get married. This country needs radical reform to get rid of oppression and its aftermath of the tyranny. Sexual styles are not chosen like the rest of the world. Undergraduate girls are often lead lesbian lifestyle and have the advantage of not becoming pregnancy and marry when it is opportune. “Before you engage in anything with [her] remember: God is watching you.” In Saudi Arabia, “It’s easier to be a lesbian [than a heterosexual]. There’s an overwhelming number of people who turn to lesbianism,” Yasmin said to the Atlantic. Anyway, you look at the kingdom it is externally puritan theocracy: men distance not handshake women to avoid sex temptation but internally rotten that export not only oil but also falsely “strict” Wahabi school of thought to poorer Muslims worldwide.

Homosexuality is a temporary sexual shelter for most men before their marriage, if they cannot marry, they continue their circumstantial sex style and unlike the West, it is not an addiction or choice nonetheless it remains underground in the full knowledge of the Imams in the kingdom without the freedom of the rainbow rallies. Only in the Holy Land of Arabia, a single man can be married, bisexual, heterosexual, gay, and Jihadist at the same because these sexualities are situational.
Saudi inmates are well fed, cared for, and occasionally let eat out in the Ritz in Monaco, LA, and London with the responsibility of their vigil guardians despite in the menopause age. Is that okay for the Saudi inmates in various compounds in the kingdom and to be satisfied with the situation? It has parallels with African-American prisoner in Birmingham, Martin Luther, who reacted to the unwise comment of his fellow coreligionist critics that his pursuit of justice was “untimely” and counterproductive. “…confined…we have waited more 340 years for constitutional, and God-given rights” Martin Luther King, Jr. For how long the Saudi women should wait their universal rights in the age of democracy and enlightenment?
The appalling conditions of Saudi women, victims of century-old patriarchy are far worse than that of Luther King by any standard. Because Saudi women face domestic rape, regular incest, the maltreatment as sex objects, and above all, the denial of due process. In the US prison system, you entitled to food, sleeping, going to canteen to buy extra luxuries, and performing some gym. None of these are available to the Saudi oppressed women in the unofficial house arrest in solitary life surrounded by people of the same gender jerking off. Mona Eltahawy Egyptian American writer’s grim story “why do they hate us” is stark reality.
Princess Al-Taweel in interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan’s Show “are you Impatient..? That the grandmother of her mother said step by step, in no way, I tell my daughter by step by step. It is the time to revolutionize the rigid culture of Arabia that deprives women of all basic rights.
Donald’s speech to Arabia and the Muslims worldwide lacked the usual vitality and the notorious bullying tone. His trite remarks may spur new waves of women rights violations. However, Saudi women no matter how oppressed they are won’t give up their rights despite the American president abandoned them in limbo.
Emma Lazarus’s poem gives internal hope and inspires self-fuelling women rights champions worldwide keep lively spirit. “ give your tired , your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” neither the president nor the First Lady discussed the plight with the king to keep the women hopeful and forget to cite of Abigail “ Remember the ladies” the US government officials pretend that Saudi women are okay and are making fuss about the triviality. Donald skipped the executions and mutilations of housemaids in his speech not to offend arms consumerist monarchy that always buy weapons to fight imaginary arch foe of devils since the oil discovery. For the first time, the ‘Holy’ Kingdom went to war with Yemen in post-oil Kingdom era.
The US president shouldn’t visit the Saudi Kingdom for it is a notorious of arbitrary killing, stoning, nailing women to death but the ponzi scheme of arms deals tempted the president to ignore the rampant violations of humans rights day in and day out; it is undeniably an epicenter of global terror and women slavery. Almost all Wahhabi schools of terror infrastructure from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria to Somalia were financed by the kingdom. The rest of the oil revenues go to fund house arrests of women and the salaries of the male subjugating guardians who are not only polygynists but also owners of mistresses else in the Arab world . Islamic scholars like myself think this internment of women has been reinforced by the fake Hadiths that need abrogation. Using independent reasoning, Sheikh Al-Abani abrogated dozens of Hadiths attributed to the prophet but not actual ones. We need more of this European Imam to scrap un-Islamic stories that fuel misogynist cultures to throw it into dustbin.
A girl from Somalia the worst country to be a woman reckoned on Trump’s “historic” trip to Holy Land and thought he would disband the misogyny theocracy networks that dispersed across the dynasty in return gives her sigh of relief.
The indifference suggested that Saudi woman isn’t Belty Frieden, the Feminine Mystique “it is time to stop giving lip service to the idea that there no battles left for women…” her remarks haunt the minds of Saudi women protesting driving ban which is a tip of the iceberg. Neither the Saudi girl is Khadija, a partner of the prophet successful CEO and self-employed. Scrapping the moral diplomacy of Woodrow Wilson, president didn’t let his time and focus on arms deal absorb by unnecessary battles; fuss and ended his speech with monotony. Parents in Saudia offer their daughters to potential sexual client “husbands” without their consent. If divorced for lack of hymen and virginity which is also nonsensical crap, their cousins are the second opportunity knowing in advance that the women suffer loss of virginity because of incest and the male cousins understand that and need not to stigmatize the girls of the hymen absence because the cousins’ sisters are exposed to the same brutality and domestic rape and incest. Ivanka Donald’s speech mere of “women empowerment” noted by mistake perhaps by the Saudi speechwriter only galvanized the child molesters of the kingdom to normalize the child marriage and women house arrest to take official stamp. The Saudis’ expectation that American president would defy any appeasement, resist any temptation and ultimately would emancipate the unjustly inmates in the hands of the guardians had evaporated.
Boris Johnson’s historic comment of describing the dark dynasty what it is “a puppet” state was bold comparing with Donald’s who silently walked over the graves of mutilated bodies of Asian housemaids unbothered. Some were put gang-raped to death or kept in the kitchen for days until they die “ we have seen the prime minister sacrifice human rights on the altar of arms trade while Britain’s chief diplomat blurts out the reality in Saudi role in fuelling … wars” Corbyn’s draft speech. In the face of multibillion dollar bloody arms deals” the UK prime minister, a woman herself supposedly to fight women’ rights, compromised human rights of “others”. Did the billionaire president of America follow suit? Saudi women look up to America leadership for values and human rights respect to fight for their freedom but Mr. Donald’s indifferent behavior in the face of the oppressor victimizing hapless women seemed saying it is a Saudi problem, so deal with it; He ended his speech with these “we don’t impose our way of life on others”. The girls had born in tyrant households ruled by brute king, and looked after by cruel guardians, and observed by callous siblings need global moral courage to set them free otherwise it is stain in our conscience forever.
