    Having the attention of the world is one thing... doing something with it is something else... but I trust you already know that (smile). Anyway, just wanted to say hello and that I like your style... ~Christine Weiss, editor/publisher http://www.gozarks.com

    Seek refuge in Allah in order to be saved from the shaitan the reject one. In influence of the jiin is making you believe that the perversion against Allah is what you want.

    You are not a whore nor evil witch, just someone who have been overcome by evil. It is not too late to return to Allah.

    I will pray for you Saudi Eve for Allah to free you from this evil influence of the jiin.

    Below is an e-mail from a post
    -----------------------------------
    Bismillah:

    It is Allah who grants favors to whom he wills, not America. To reject the favors of Allah is a sin according to the Prophet Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (Peace Blessings Upon Him). I make dua to Allah, then work for my own business as an accountant and wholesale merchant to my client for general merchadise.

    Peace to you!

    So why, if you are truly who and what you say you are; a USA born moslem, then why do you continue to live and reap the benefits of American society, assuming you still live in the US. And I'm not uncertain that you don't!

    What a contradiction. Exactly what I would expect!

    There is a saying about catching more flies with honey than with vinegar (though nothing about what you do with all of them...)

    You'll meet a lot of interesting people this way..as well as a few weirdos and weasels...
    Good luck and keep on writing.

    So thats what u want all along Eve. Fame and recognition. You compare easily with that Somali liar in Denmark who lied to get refugee status and then got elected to their lower house. All because she said what they wanted to hear about Islam. Your so called fame is really based on that. U critisize saudi society and defile their way and ur way of lfe and they cheer u. i am not amused by your antics,

    Your blog is beautiful and poetic. God loves all people equally - men and woman. Many people do not want to believe this because they are interested in maintaining the status quo because it is easy. Keep it up!

    Saudi Eve-
    You are amazing and brave to have this beautifully written blog. Americans take too many things for granted, and then allow themselves to give away their freedoms because of fear. What we don't realize is that people (particularly women)in other countries live in fear everyday, and they are thirsting for the FREEDOM which we so easily acquiese.

    Salaam.

    Hey Nasara in Nigeria. If you don't like her blog, then don't read it. It's that simple. Besides, I seriously doubt her goal in life is to amuse you.

    Au revoir,

    If you can do anything at all to
    expand the parochial POV and all
    the paranoia that attends the male
    Muslim mind, I wish you the best.

    I have no god, but I have myself,
    and the golden rule does not bear
    the burden of religious dictum, so
    offends no one, and serves all.

    If you understand, things are as
    they are; and if you do not
    understand, things are as they are.

    Be your best, Saudi Eve!

    Dear Saudi Eve,
    Congratulations on your blog - it's great. I spent 19 years in the Kingdom, teaching English at the Institute of Public Administration, mostly in Riyadh, but four of those years were in Jeddah.
    I'm very glad to see that the Internet is opening up new avenues of expression for Saudis. I made many good friends during my time there, and
    I wish all the best to them and to you.
    Have you ever visited this blog:

    I'm so sorry to see that "The Religious Policeman" is moving on to other venues; his comments have always been so wise, witty and humane.
    But I'm happy to see that the "blogging torch" has been picked up by others.
    Alhamdulillah
    Regards,
    John

    "Anonymous posted at 7:40 AM, June 20, 2006 "

    What the heck? Overcome by evil? What's so evil? And who do you think you are to judge her? Shouldn't you leave that to Allah?

    If it's for the Christian and Jewish prayers on her blog, try reading Quran:

    "And do not dispute with the followers of the Book except by what is best, except those of them who act unjustly, and say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him do we submit." 29:46

    Peace and well-wishes for yours and others' continued bravery. Many hearts are going out in your direction---keep it up, do what you have to do....we love you, sister

    Your archive about post 9/11 Saudi Arabia, part 3, from December 30, 2005 seems to be getting some attention. I read some things there that might be relevant to your plight.

    Peace

    Saudi Arabia is a Black Hole for me even though i am an Arab, palestinian born inside Israel.
    would love to travel and check-out the scene in the Gulf.

    But i am glad there still are open minded people left.

    i am sick to my stomach of Muslim extremists.

    I used to was born and bought up in Dubai. I work in New York but I can understand where your coming from. Though I realize I could never totally understand since Dubai is more liberal. I am sure just reading our comments give you courage and strength. The way I see it is up to your generation to slowly modernize Saudi society in a manner that suits Saudi culture. There is a lot of work to be done and I am sure you are treading very carefully. With blogs like yours the world can see what Saudi Arabia tries to hide. Go for it sister!!

    Eve,

    I ask for your forgiveness for my being blunt:

    A golden opportunity has been placed at YOUR feet to really raise up the voice of the people and throw the doors wide open on a number of issues and things that need to be changed. For whatever reason, the designs of fate have pointed YOU out at this time. You have the attention of the world-----USE it! YOU can be an active force now, a voice of change to the whole world. I encourage you to act on this opportunity and don't just make it about yourself. I don't believe that this opportunity is going to be around forever, and I encourage you to take full advantage of it. I imagine that thousands of people are reading your blog and you have the chance to speak up and really shine a bright light on the dark corners of so many people's (and women's, especially) situations.

    "You have the attention of the world".....and you say--

    "Yipee"......???

    That's it?

    YOU have a major, HUGE, tremendous communication opportunity that you can use to empower and mobilize not only yourself, but people in your home country and around the world about bringing much needed changes. I truly hope you don't waste it.

    I am so happy that we live in America the greatest Nation on earth when it comes to the indivitual freedomes. Even some people want to take it away in some ways but the base of our freedom is too strong and will become only stronger. I am a muslim but I depise the acto of most of the muslims which they committ under the name of the religion. They put the women in cages and take away thier freedom. Tell me is this what the Prophet said?
    It is just the muslim man's ego and selfishness. The majority of the muslim man thinks the religion of Islam is about covering and suppressing women and mostly they themselfs do the acts of evil by commiting many disgusting deeds. In Saudi Aribia and many other gulf countries they rape the poor house keeper and the small boys no one dear to say anything about it. Look at stories in the Unites Arab Emirates, Saudi Aribia. It is a true shame to Islam.
