Sheik of the Burning Sand

Huma Abedin suggested I post this video. Only kidding. I wanted to post it before it's taken down by YouTube censors since National Enquirer' s magazine, THE NEW KINGDOM, features Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman on the front cover.

The magazine appeared on news stands just days before His Royal Highness' three week American visit. He will visit President Trump, then fly to Seattle to meet with Bill Gates and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, afterwards traveling down the West Coast to Hollywood. The Hollywood excursion most likely concerns future production of movies showing Muslims and Islam in a positive light only.

I bought the $14 magazine so you don't have to. There are no women in its 97 pages. OK...there is a tiny photo of Her Royal Highness Princess Reema bint Bandar bin Sultan in a hijab because she's Vice-President for Women's Affairs of the General Sports Authority (?) and there are two photos of Melania Trump - oh - and a picture of a woman who looks like Darth Vadar on page 7. OK, there's a person on page 20 who could be a woman. Wait - in the very back of the magazine, pages 92 and 93, there is an article - "New Rights for Saudi Women" - with a picture of a woman's face. Women are now allowed into soccer stadiums in one city where they can sit by a man in the "family area". Women also will be allowed to drive cars. The article assures us that "the sky will be the limit for Saudi women." 

No more politically incorrect songs like *Ray Stevens' Ahab the Arab will ever be allowed, therefore let's enjoy this funny Arabian Nights song while we can.

*Ray Stevens was never appointed as ambassador to Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates.
