This is not just victim stuff .. but tied into it is a "cultural" sisterhood of common purpose, power.(negative), fear , darkness and controlling mischief that gives a twisted comfort and harmonious sense of purpose which will continue to grow and abide in deceit, the worksof darkness and union with their "rulers captors".. until the come to the Truth..

I know it's true but I am no fan of the Jihad Watch. It's one or extreme or the other it seems.

All the more reason for us to become energy independent - and wean ourselves off of fossil fuels. When we no longer need oil, what will Saudi Arabia sell - sand? Then the civilized world will have some leverage to force them to stop treating women like trash.

Is anyone really surprised about this? Women have no rights in this dump of a country.

They're clearly not too proud to use kafir technology to oppress their women. No surprise there.

Susie, electronic chips used to track lots of things: cars, laptops, dogs.

No wonder Saudi businessmen want to track all of their property, including wives, not only cars and laptops.

They can't have dogs, because dogs are not allowed in Saudi Arabia, together with Jews and Christians.

Marie W. The GOP already has wanted to RFID chip everyone in this country during the Bush years. They even had it on the ballot in Michigan, as Michigan was planning on forcing all the people in the state to be bugged. It was voted down, thankfully. But it is already in their corrupt evil minds of the GOP and now the chips are smaller and better that before. You could be chipped by your doctor or dentist and not even know. And I would not be surprised if that has happened to us already.

Along with wanting to force all women in America to be human xerox machines and keep cranking out those 2 legged walking cannon fodder balls, plus the religious whack jobs in the GOP wanting to make this nation a theocracy, talk of repealing voting rights on women and minorities. The next logical step in those wicked politicians minds would be to track all females in this country, especially the ones who can become pregnant. Because all of the more enlightened women, who know what is going on behind these closed door meetings the male congress critters have refuse to allow these congress women to partake in, especially when it concerns womens rights to their own bodies, seems that the biggest threat to the men in America are educated, independent women who are capable of surviving much better without the male side of a relationship and therefore men feel threatened by strong women and that is a big no-no in the way things are supposed to be according to the bible and other religious teachings that promote the repression of all females.

Maybe a Saudi man is worried that with freedom for women in Saudi Arabia comes the freedom to have affairs and stuff, watching American TV. How about we ask a Saudi guy?

Yet again a story from Jihad watch a site notorious for its depiction of Islam as an inherently violent faith that is a threat to world peace. The articles printed were used verbatum by Anders Breivig. The thing is the stories have been verified by other sources. The Saudi treatment of women has always been bad, I suspect that they want to keep track on women because of the Saudi's pathological fear of ninjas. Still, I notice that the Saudi men are abroad they like to screw around, get drunk and beat their servants to death in hotel rooms sort of speaks volumes for the double standard.

I find people who post " jihad watch" are just as extreme . It's so low to disrespect others...
what's the intention, is it "hate the Muslimes"? I see that in all your posts.

In 1987 I represented an Australian company in Geneva. The product I was demonstraing was invented by Drs Allan Cole and Richard Vaughan. They were the oringinal inventors of the Sensormatic Chip used to stop shop lifting. This was a joint invention through the University of NSW (Sydney Aust). As the patient was owned by the Uni they could sell it and they did for a paltry $65,000. It now turns over around $300 million per annum.

The good doctors invented a new chip that could work as a passive transponder and be implanted in anything non conductive. It was aimed at tracking cattle and Passport control.

When I was demonstrating it I was asked by an MP from the Saudi Royal Family if it could be used in people. It was on their minds to track their women and also pilgrims to Mecca for security purposes.

It scared the hell out of me! Lucky I did not have to answer it at the time as I would have had t lie and say it was not biologically compatible with human beings.

So do I believe that this article is true? yes! unfortunately I believe it is very true and there will be more and worse things involving this technology when applied to people.

@ Suzanne L...Unfortunately this rage (fem) is an agent of unification ..without spritual remedy.. which keeps them joined in sympathy at the behest of a nighmare of cycles of bitter revenge and attack.. under the "authority" of DARKNESS..HELL HATH NO FURY......ETC.

We think we have come so far with our just seems that we can do more of the same abusive things more easily and quicker.
l think we have to be even more vigilant of the shadow elements on our planet as we move into and age where we are experiencing more instant manifestations of cause and effect. This is a powerful time, we just have to keep asking the questions......what is the power being used for and how does it serve us?

Send a Green Star to Ira Herson

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Ira because you have done so within the last week.
