BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:05 P.M.) – The Saudi regime has issued a royal decree, today, allowing for women to operate motor vehicles inside the Gulf kingdom.

Announced on state television tonight, the Saudi regime announced that they will allow women to drive, but not right away.

No official date was announced regarding implementation of this decree

Prior to this decree, Saudi Arabia had a long-standing policy that banned women from operating vehicles, prompting many international human rights organizations to condemn the Al-Sa’ud regime in Riyadh.

Looks like that instilling Wahabbism all over the middle-east backfired. Now Saudi Arabia is forced to become more liberal.

*falls over laughing*

Good for KSA. Impssible to build a modern society & economy if 1/2 of population doesn’t have basic human rights.
