Seems jealousy in the Magic Kingdom is rife as ever.

Is there no social etiquette left in Saudi?

IIRC, from the early Aramco era, that WAS the preferred social etiquette.

What's the difference between this and here in this country where a drunk thug in a pub thinks another guy has just been looking at his wife?

This has always puzzled me. If the female is attractive-looking then this is almost normal behaviour, Shirley?

A friend used to respond "What, me, looking at your bird? You must be joking!" which I thought was risky . . .

One difference is that the Saudi thug is unlikely to be drunk.

When I first met someone who was to become my first wife, whenever I took her anywhere all the heterosexuals just kept looking at her.

Didn't offend me in the slightest. My attitude was "and I'm sleeping with her tonight aes.

She was a model for Vogue magazine.

Lightning mate: You mean Vague magazine?
They were looking at her because they couldn't believe she'd stoop to being with someone like you

Only guessing of course......

It also looks like it is in the house of the Saudi.

Who made the mistake ?

You or her ?

Isn't male sexual insecurity one of the pillars of .....

I hang out a lot in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is home to a large university and a hotbed of liberal-to-radical feminism, and a plethora of cherished left-wing causes. Disinvesting in any Israel-connected investment is one of those causes.

Often I see young student females, often lily-white and obviously not deprived in any way, affecting the garb of the Islamic female dress code. My unexpressed thoughts are always, "What in the hell are you thinking?"

Provisional answer #1:

Thinking that getting astride the dick of some Arab son of an oil tycoon secures their financial future.

Provisional answer #2:

Not actually thinking.

I hope this is a tongue in cheek comment? The few Saudis I've known and dealt with over the years drank like fish.

I observed a long time ago shopping in the fantastic supermarkets of Jeddah the whole aisles devoted to grape juice, yeast and sugar.

I've also observed the Saudis and such when they hit Vegas. I don't pass judgment on that. I'd misbehave, too, if I had such a suffocating culture to escape from.

Testicular constriction reduces the ability of the male to produce testosterone, a vital ingredient in the formation of aggressive synapses. Flowing robes mean cooler balls and thus more of them, in a figurative fashion.

The non-Saudi in this fight could not fight back for fear of losing his livelihood. Also, if you're an ex-pat in Saudi Arabia and run afoul of a Saudi and it goes to court, the Saudi always wins. You sign on to that when you agree to a gig there.

The KSA lives in fear of its Kingdom. It knows the wolves continue to circle their sovereignty and will wait for as long as it takes. An evil, cruel family who have held control for eons.
And the reason they still hold power: the good old US of A followed a very very close second by the good old UK.
What would the KSA do without us.......disintegrate hopefully.

This place is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay past its shelf life and come the day when one of those wolves creeps in through a door left ajar...the whole royal family will be savaged....hopefully.
