Saudi women challenge driving ban

Via BBC:

Members of the Committee of Demanders of Women’s Right to Drive Cars plan to deliver a petition to King Abdullah by Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s National Day.

Correspondents say the demand is likely to be rejected, as conservatives argue if women are allowed to drive, they will be able to mix freely with men.

This is our closest ally in the Middle East, a strict, repressive theocracy. A government with close ties to terrorism and one of the chief sources of funds for terrorist organizations. However, their king is a good friend of the Bush family.

Yet another way our middle east policy is completely screwed up.
