Royal Nightmare: Saudi princesses locked up by father suffer from hunger & isolation



RT Published on May 30, 2014

Living in a royal palace may sound like a dream for many - but for the four Saudi princesses it turned into a nightmare. They have been living in isolation for 13 years after falling out of favour with their father, King Abdullah. RT has again spoken to the women.


- Maybe they can start a Twitterpic campaign thing: ''Bring the King's girls home.''


''I do not believe in hell-fire and brimstone; but in moments like this I regret my unbelief. Nay, in moments like this I almost do believe. Surely there must be a hell, for in no less place could it be possible for you to receive punishment adequate to your crimes. So long as you exist, there is a vital need for hell-fire in the Cosmos."

Jack London, The Iron Heel

1. This coming from the nation

that unlike Iraq, produced 15 of the 19 hijackers, yet had enough connections through oil that they did not get bombed.

3. I'm sorry, ''looking back'' is prohibited.

 

- Unless it's to display our enduring love, obeisance and willingness to prostitute ourselves to tinpot tyrants like Abdullah Saud for the sake of his filthy petroleum.

2. We need gender asylum

 

We give people political asylum. I'd be proud if our nation provided asylum based on fear of physical harm from systemic gender discrimination.

4. Gender asylum is a great idea, and one who's time has come.

My husband has been saying this for years -- These women's lives

are worth next to nothing in their own countries.

They are in at LEAST as much peril as your average political dissident.

7. I'm with you on that.

I can hardly believe the story in the report about the princesses. How did this report get out?

I am never totally confident in what RT reports.

Hillary Clinton is a strong supporter of women's rights. I wonder if she would have the courage to check this story out.

8. Yes!

Every nation with the capability to shelter and protect these women should offer it.
