Saudi Arabia drops cultural festival in Ottawa

The goal was to make Saudi Arabia a bit more palatable to Canadians. The plan was to stage a festival in Ottawa, a celebration of Saudi culture (of some highly sanitized variety).


The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.”

The problem was the beheadings were scheduled for the same time as the fish fry and they could not resolve the conflict.

Was it gong to be a mass beheading of kuffar dog-pigs competition in which the winner is given a pretty rosette and homemade trophy as a prize, like a "Best Sheepdog Competition" at an English village fete?

I see neither... what was incorrect? Is it not part of their customs and culture?

Lucky that the dress makers would have both genders as clients. I once read that a moustache and beard was just a shock-absorber for a cocksucker. I wonder if there is any truth to the rumor?

BTW, way ahead of your usual retort today, can you tell?

Is that some way of telling us you won the competition and that was your prize??

I wonder how Yemen feels about our 'gifts' to the Saudi Military. Oh wait, those are for those pesky natives should they rise up in revolt. (just in time to take over and the bank accounts are all in the red, a long way in the red)

I guess that the NCC disallowed the goat's head polo match followed by the ceremonial stoning of a sodomite.

Besides, all if those colourful tulip beds would piss the right off. Too much like colourful kites, happiness, infidel stuff like that.
