The #Saudi regime’s “Authority to Counter-Extremism” has made a one-minute ad in which it conflates women who escape Saudi male guardianship with men who join ISIS and other violent extremist groups. The conflation of feminism with terrorism. I am writing about this. Wow.
#Saudi regime trolls have attacked me for past month for helping Rahaf. They’ve accused me of kidnapping “our girls” and conflated feminism with terrorism. Sound familiar? It’s an old trick. Remember American Christian Evangelical Pat Robertson. #Feminism terrifies authoritarians
And here is the ad: feminism is terrorism. This is incredible!
Remember that a columnist in renowned #Saudi newspaper Okaz called for the execution of feminists as “corrupters on earth”
And a #Saudi university labeled feminism a “threat to national security...the danger of which is no less than al-Qaeda or ISIS/Daesh”
#Saudi regime script is, as this regime troll accused me, “feminists are engaged in intellectual terrorism vs family & society w/goal of recruiting young women similar to how al-Qaeda and ISIS/Daesh recruited young men”. Incredible. And speaks to how they fear feminism.
