Saudi Arabia is planning to build a new city exclusively for women as it bids to combine strict Sharia law and career minded females, pursuing work.

It is thought the Saudi Industrial Property Authority (Modon) has been asked to bring the country up to date with the rest of the modern world with the controversial city, which is now being designed with construction to begin next year.

It is hoped it will allow women’s desire to work without defying the country’s Islamic laws.

I wish I understood this mentality - no, wait, scrap that.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Who'd have thought women were so powerful...I mean you scare some men so much that they go so far as to build an entire city for you to keep you away from men, and have spent many many lifetimes constructing laws and mindsets to try and control you. When I think of women it makes me smile, when others think of them they device new ways to try and control them.....so many sad little men on this planet. It won't happen in my lifetime but t would be nice to think a time will come when I don't have to share a planet with these backward half-wits.

When I first read this my thoughts were why can't you just let them prosper right where they are and stop letting sharia law dictate everything.  However this could be a first step for women, once you have a little freedom its hard to go back so they may start demanding more freedom.  Don't tell the Saudi's I said this.

Well considering the alternative, segregation might be preferable to women over there.  Who is going to be allowed to leave to live there though?

that's no solution and the fact they use islam excuse to opress women is outrageous
hell with it women used to fight in wars during islam ! trade .. work  they used to do all kinda of activities
i doubt saudia will ever change unless a revolution reach it

Mecca is a Muslim-only city that BANS non-Muslims so this sort of apartheid is pretty in keeping with unreformed Islam.

Would you be happy if Rome banned Muslims? How about if Jerusalem Banned Muslims?

It's apartheid pure and simple.

both places would never be banned to muslims .. so why talk about something impossiable to happen ?
however mecca is banned to non-muslims .. and shall always be .. now that's reality

yep .. i like facts
i don't like fact that saudia is forcing islamic laws on people eaither
and use islam as cover to rule in dictatorship
you see i put the blame where it belongs and i don't hide wrong things

but mecca being only muslims place .. now that's part of islam that no one can change or manipulate
