This girl is beautiful and educated. How could she ever accept to be a 4th wife??
Saudi Princess Wants To Drive, Promises A Woman’s Revolution
Dodai Stewart — Fairy tales teach us that part of being a princess means having your dreams come true. Getting what you want. Princess Ameerah al-Taweel is gorgeous, rich, and owns a pet zebra. But her true desire? To be able to drive in her homeland of Saudi Arabia — and for other women to be able to drive as well.
I'm always impressed by the fact they had the territory that included the Riviera for about 700 years in this Christian era. So for one third of our era, the Riviera was Arab. It's not altogether surprising they feel at home there.
The President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, sent today a congratulatory cable to HRH Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud on his appointment as Saudi Crown Prince. He was also named deputy prime minister and minister of defence.
In his felicitation cable, Shaikh Khalifa wished Prince Salman success in his mission as a supporter to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia, so as to pursue development and renaissance in Saudi Arabia.
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice- President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and General Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, cabled similar greetings to Prince Salman.
This woman is a conundrum. Princess Sara. She comes across as one pain in the ass, with a face as genuine as her charitable heart. It seems she might have never gotten a correction in her life and as an adult, she doesn't know what else to do - in spite of having led a Western life for much of hers - with herself other than manipulate. Newsflash: if you didn't want to be who you were, at any time you could have changed course and taken charge of your life as an ordinary civilian. Those people that want their cake and eat it too
A big BRAVO to the Saudi royals who intervened to lock this guy up, a preacher who raped and tortured his infant daughter to the point she died of a broken body. You have to be one sick bastard to look on a child as a sexual object IMO, and I truly hope they make an example out of him for his arrogance, his deviance and the gall that he has to preach anything to anyone:
This is fascinating. Steve Forbes undervalues Prince Alwaleed's wealth just so that he got booted off the top 10. To me, what's a billion more or less? However, Steve Forbes was once a CIA puppet at Radio Free Europe put there by Ronald Reagan, responsible for starting uprisings in Communist countries among other uses like Cold War propaganda. So, why would the CIA irk the guy? The US are friendly with SA so what are they trying to start?
PA's wealth is clearly still on the grey list This is "declared" wealth.
Meanwhile, Forbes really lays it on thick to provoke something, judging by a reporter's rebuke. Cowardly of Steve Forbes and typical of the US to hide behind a smokescreen. Meanwhile, a guy who pitches a tent to hang out with Bedouins is made out to be worse than Trump in self-aggrandizement. That's simply impossible! So you know this is a major dig. At the bottom of this is the slighting of the Saudi Arabian Stock Exchange, in favour of...Mexico?!?
If I were Alwaleed, I wouldn't state any strategy, and I wouldn't do the predictable thing to run to Bloomberg because they're probably the right and left hand messing with him. Alwaleed either has something, an asset they want or the US government is trying to influence a change within the kingdom by rattling Alwaleed. Do the Sphynx and watch...

Saudi Arabia's national airline to introduce gender segregation after a string of complaints from male passengers
Follows complaints from male fliers over men sitting next to their wives Airline will include instructions to flight booking staff at Gulf airports Saudi Arabia is known for its gender segregation in public places
Saudi Arabia's national airline is allegedly planning to separate male and female passengers on its flights, in accordance to strict rules enforced by the Gulf kingdom.
Gulf media report that Saudia will keep men and women segregated onboard, unless they are close relatives.
The move follows a spate of complaints from male fliers unwilling to allow other males to sit next to their wives and other female family members.
Azzam was commissioned by Khalifa Al Nahyan, the president of the United Arab Emirates. The yacht is currently listed for charter without the price. According to Motor Boat & Yacht magazine, the yacht is not available for actual charter, and the charter listing, similar to Roman Abramovich's Eclipse, is aimed to avoid European taxation (charter yachts are exempt from property tax).
I personally liked having the option in Dubai to travel with women and children in the metro if I wanted. Sitting with other women often is more pleasant when you're among strangers. Mind you, in Jeddah, I got such dirty looks transiting to destination - from other women, so they can be harsh and judgmental towards foreigners and make it uncomfortable. It's the problem with those women being overly sheltered sometimes. I thought Saudia really pushed the religion card and interrupted the relaxation of flying with constant moralistic video messages. I found their in-flight cartoon entertainment ( blatant digs at the more secular society of the Emirates ) downright tiresome.
