Saudi "Barbaria"

This should come as no surprise from a country that raised 15 of the 9/11 hijackers and subjugates its women citizens:

Saudi Arabia has banned all government and private agencies from using the Gregorian calendar in official dealings.  The use of the English language to answer calls or communicate, mainly in companies and hotels, has also been banned, a local daily said.  All ministries and agencies have to use the Hijri dates (Islamic calendar) and the Arabic language, the interior ministry said.

Not that Saudi Arabia is welcoming any tourists anyway . . .
