Cleric- "Women Driving Connected to Rape"
VIEW VIDEO CLIP OF SAUDI CLERIC CLAIMING DRIVING & RAPE CONNECTED HERE
Saudi cleric Dr. Abd Al-‘Aziz Al-Fawzan is claiming that there is a connection between rape and driving. MEMRI TV has the interview video and transcript which ran on Al-Majd TV on June 17, 2005.
Dr. Fawzan: “They want women to go out on the streets all made up, like a harlot, with her face uncovered, like they see in the West. They think that the shortest and best way to reach this goal is to allow women to drive, because if a woman drives, she will reveal her face, drive without a male chaperone, will have an easy opportunity to meet all kinds of young men and women, and she will get all made up, will mix with men, and so on.
I don’t think that any woman, throughout human history, has been as oppressed as the Western woman today – and they still claim that they have given her freedom…
…She does not get what she wants unless she sacrifices her honor, to her bosses or co-workers. How strange! Even though they have permissiveness there, and any man can satisfy his desires outside of marriage… he’s not satisfied with ten or twenty. Any girl he sees, who has certain features, he wants. If she consents – fine. If not – he rapes her.”
