To be honest to say, Saudia Arabia is main supplier of Oil to the world.
That's why they are attacking to Saudi Arabia through Media. Actually Europeans or others don't care these people, all is happening because of oil, trying to decrease the price.

Women are treated like animals in Arab countries especially SOUDIA , we people of civilized world should help these poor women , but we have very selfish mean leaders who only thinks about their business interests or business contracts, why don’t we push SOUDIA government to give equal rights to women, and its minorities , where the he’ll is our democratic values, and where the he’ll is our intellectual honesty .

Why not help millions of Palestinians being massacred by Israel? Because they cannot make Islam and Muslims look bad then, only Israel would look bad... all fake drama.
Rick Shawn
Hypocrite West, this is just to show the Saudis in a negative light, why not give assylum to Rohingiya Muslims being massacred by the Burmese Buddhists? Because who cares, they are poor right? No one is falling for this scam.
Shame to Arab rulars. Well done girl

I am happy she is safe now but as a Muslim person I am pretty much not fine with her changes after leaving her country, it's why prefer her to follow Islamic believes and rules then I think Allah will help her in many ways.
Suraya Khan
What an example of double standards and hypocrisy of western governments and mainstream western media.There are millions of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Burma and Afghanistan who are not only scared for their lives, they are being abused burned to death and it is so sad that they are hardly given attention and children women old are left to suffer. Mostly they are suffering because of western policies and interference of US, NATO and USSR in poor countries of Asia and Africa.
Nimat Khan
