Sex Sensitive Sidewalks For The Saudis

The Mutaween, the religious police tasked wjth enforcing Sharia in Saudi Arabia, are now insisting that separate sidewalks be installed in Medina so men and women will not mix on the street. After all, Medina is the burial place of Mohammed and we can't have the prophet spinning in his grave because the sexes are in close proximity.

You have to love these guys, there almost isn't a need to ridicule them when they do such a great job of making asses of themselves. Then they wonder why their bufoonery inspire cartoonists to mock them.
