    "Saudi Arabia has arrested 17 Filipinos for attending a Halloween party at which there were men and women….but the Filipino embassy fears that the charges relate to the fact that there were men and women at the party."
    The Filipino embassy is correct, as Saudi Wahhabi laws prohibit “unattached” males and females from being seen in public together.
    The embassy in Riyadh has issued a notice to the Philippine community in the country urging them to be mindful of local sensitivities
    It’s peculiar how Islamic states, organizations and supremacists prioritize the protection of their “local sensitivities,” while also prioritizing the imposition of their “local sensitivities” in democracies, mostly without opposition.
