- Over 39,000 Pakistanis have been deported from Saudi Arabia in the last four months
Not only Saudi Arabia refuses to take any Muslim refugees as they are being dumped around Europe and U.S., the Saudi kingdom is not shy either in deporting any Pakistani Muslims with ties to ISIS or with criminal records.
From the Middle East Monitor:
Saudi Arabia has deported almost 40,000 Pakistanis over the past four months, claiming that they could be involved in the commission of terrorist acts, Moheet.com reported on Friday.
Over 39,000 Pakistanis have been deported from Saudi Arabia in the last four months, the Saudi Gazette reported on Tuesday.
The deportations were attributed to visa violations, crime and security concerns linking the deportees to terrorist organisations, but come amid a background of migrant worker unrest that has plagued the kingdom over the past year.
Citing “informed security sources”, the Saudi Gazette said that a number of the Pakistanis deported were linked to the Daesh group or terrorist activities [ISIS]. Others were deported over crimes including drug trafficking, theft, forgery and physical assault
STARBUCKS ERECTS GENDER WALL TO SEGREGATE WOMEN FROM MEN, BANNED WOMEN AFTER WALL COLLAPSED – BUT THEY ARE IN SAUDI SO IT’S OK, RIGHT?…HOW ABOUT THE LGBT, ARE THEY STILL NOT ALLOWED?
Looking for a cup off Starbucks coffee in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia? Get behind the gender segregation wall, ladies!
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz recently claimed that “civility and human rights” were under attack when he announced a pledge to hire 10,000 refugees in its stores around the world and in the United States. However, it appears that Schultz’ pledge is little more than virtue signaling, as the coffee chain has proven itself more than willing to adapt to local customs that run contrary to the western ideals.
In Saudi Arabia, for example, Starbucks adheres to the practice of gender segregation. In it’s Saudi locations, Starbucks erects “gender walls” to keep women and men from co-mingling in their coffee shops. Some might say that Starbucks’ decision to comply with such rules perpetuates the second-class citizenship of Saudi women.
Early in 2016, one such wall collapsed, reportedly forcing the coffee chain to temporarily ban women from its store in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.
One woman reported the ban on Twitter, posting pictures of a sign on the store’s front door which read in English and Arabic “please no entry for ladies only send your driver to order.”

PICTURE OF ‘DISOBEDIENT’ SAUDI WOMAN IN 21st CENTURY
( DAILY CALLER ) Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton sent an email to her campaign chairman John Podesta in 2014, who was then-counselor to President Barack Obama, that said Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both giving financial and logistical support to the Islamic State and other extremist Sunni groups, according to a recent Wikileaks release.
“While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” Clinton wrote.
The former secretary of state added: “This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the [Kurdish Regional Government]. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.”
