Citigroup, 21st Century Fox, Twitter: Prince’s Arrest Touches Many

It could also shake investor confidence in Saudi Arabia as the kingdom tries to shed its image as an oil-dependent petrostate. The move comes just days after Saudi Arabia held a major investment conference to drum up interest in that effort.The arrest, which was part of a sweep that included at least 10 other princes as well as current and former ministers, came just hours after the creation of a new anti-corruption committee by King Salman, who gave it broad powers to freeze the assets of anyone it considers corrupt.Prince Alwaleed made early bets on some of the tech world’s biggest stars, also including Snap, riding a boom that has catapulted many young entrepreneurs to top the rich lists, and earned him handsome returns. Prince Alwaleed also made an early bet on JD.com, a Chinese online retailer, anticipating that country’s emergence as a vast e-commerce market.In moments of corporate crises, Prince Alwaleed has stepped in to tip the balance.When the phone hacking scandal rocked a London tabloid owned by the Murdochs, the prince went on the BBC to say that Rebekah Brooks, the chief executive officer of the British unit of Mr. Murdoch’s News Corporation, had to resign. “You bet she has to go,” he said in July 2011.

Saudis Wonder What’s Next After the King Allows Women to Drive

Built on an alliance between a royal family and the descendants of an ultraconservative Muslim cleric, Saudi Arabia has struggled throughout its history with how to reconcile modernization with loyalty to religious heritage.That debate heated up as oil wealth enriched the state, bringing in unfamiliar customs and technologies like television, public education and automobiles.Over time, competing camps dug in around women and the right to drive.For liberals, the driving ban was a blot on the national brand that was hampering modernization and weakening the economy.Conservatives, including powerful clerics employed by the state, thought that allowing women to drive would be a crack in the dam that would allow secularism to flood in, washing away the kingdom’s unique Islamic identity.The royal decree announced on Tuesday handed victory in that battle to the reformers, who had gained an advantage in recent years because of demographics, economics and the country’s young leadership, analysts said.Saudi leaders, who have been criticized for the war in Yemen, the blockade of Qatar and a range of human rights issues, clearly hoped the step would help the kingdom’s reputation.“There is no wrong time to do the right thing,” Prince Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to Washington and a son of King Salman, told reporters after the change was announced.Continue reading the main storyThe government also worked behind the scenes to control the message.At least eight prominent women’s activists received calls and text messages from Saudi security officials warning them not to tweet or speak to the news media about the issue, according to three Saudi activists.They presumed the government did not want to give credit to activists for prompting the change and spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to jeopardize the women — or themselves.Many women cheered the decision, calling it a final victory in a long campaign for social change.Manal al-Sherif, who was jailed for having posted videos of herself driving and who wrote a book about her activism, said her life had tracked the wider social changes in the kingdom.Born into a poor conservative family in Mecca, Ms. Sherif, now 38, was taught that women were to remain at home and that good Muslims were to avoid “infidels” who did not share their faith, she said by phone from Australia, where she now lives.Her worldview changed when as a university student in the Red Sea port city of Jidda, she saw women who did not cover their faces in public and even had boyfriends, though covertly.PhotoManal al-Sherif, who was jailed for posting videos of herself driving, said her experiences tracked the wider social changes in the kingdom.Credit Marwan Naamani/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesThen she got a job with the state oil company, Saudi Aramco. On its sprawling compound women enjoy greater freedoms than elsewhere in the kingdom, including the ability to drive.She said that the status of women in Saudi Arabia had been used by the government over the years to placate conservatives.“Our rights as women were always used in a political game, and that is what we wanted to stop,” she said. “That really kept the country behind.”Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

The government recently arrested more than two dozen people, including prominent clerics, some of whom had criticized government policies.Three clerics employed by the government declined to comment when asked for their thoughts on the rescinded ban.“Hahahahahahaha,” one responded on Whats App, offering no further comment.Social media provided a glimpse.By midafternoon on Wednesday, the Arabic hashtag “The people reject women driving” had appeared on 335,000 tweets, while the hashtag “The king is victorious for women driving” had appeared in only 33,700 tweets, according to Twitter.But many users used the hashtags to join discussions, even if they disagreed with their message.Even longtime campaigners said they expected some resistance.“We’re a religious country,” said Fawziah Al-Bakr, a professor who has been campaigning for the right to drive for nearly three decades.But religion had nothing to do with the issue, she said, noting that women in other predominately Muslim countries like Egypt, Sudan and Pakistan have been driving for a long time.Continue reading the main story“All these women are Muslim and yet they are driving,” she said. “Not being able to drive has nothing to do with Islam.”Previous reforms have been met with great resistance in the kingdom. Conservatives campaigned against the introduction of television, fearing it would fill Saudi homes with un-Islamic images.Now many Saudi clerics have their own shows and are enthusiastic users of social media.They also tried to prevent girls’ education.Now many of their daughters are studying in Saudi universities, and even in the United States.For many Saudi women, gaining the right to drive is not the end of the struggle […]
