Saudi Arabia’s feared Islamic police mounted a fresh campaign against clothes shops in one of the Gulf Kingdom’s largest cities to stop them from selling colourful gowns to women, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice raided many shops in the western town of Taif and confiscated a large quantity of ornamented women’s gowns, Sabq online Arabic language daily said.

“The Commission members made dealers write a statement pledging not to sell these gowns again…many other deals had shut their shops and fled just before the Commission inspectors raided the market.”


Lawrence O’Donnell mocks God and Bible

"The book of Revelation is a work of fiction describing how a truly vicious God would bring about the end of the world. Now, no half-smart religious person believes the book of Revelation anymore. Those people are certain that their God would never turn into a malicious torturer and mass murderer beyond Hitler’s wildest dreams."
