Mohammed bin Salman upending Islamic fundamentalism in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said that men and women were equal, an unheard of notion in Islamic Sharia law.

When asked if women were equal to men, Prince Mohammed said: “Absolutely.”

“Absolutely. We are all human beings and there is no difference,” he said in a recent “60 Minutes” interview, his first with an American network.

“The laws are very clear and stipulated in the laws of Sharia: that women wear decent, respectful clothing, like men. This, however, does not particularly specify a black abaya or a black head cover. The decision is entirely left for women to decide what type of decent and respectful attire she chooses to wear.”

The Crown Prince blamed Saudi Arabia’s descent from what he called “moderate Islam” to a fundamentalist Wahhabi-dominant Islam that has ruled the country since the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

“We were living a very normal life like the rest of the Gulf countries,” he said. “Women were driving cars. There were movie theaters in Saudi Arabia. Women worked everywhere. We were just normal people developing like any other country in the world until the events of 1979.”

When asked if the Islamic fundamentalism that ruled in Saudi Arabia for the last 40 years was a reflection of the “real Saudi Arabia,” the Crown Prince said, “Absolutely not.”

“This is not the real Saudi Arabia. I would ask your viewers to use their smartphones to find out. And they can Google Saudi Arabia in the 70s and 60s, and they will see the real Saudi Arabia easily in the pictures,” he said.

As we reported, the recent purge of Clinton-connected individuals within Saudi leadership is also a signal that the globalists’ 30-year grip on the Islamic nation is over.
