While the Saudis wish to stick to their harsh, man-made Islam, it is heartening to note that there are more and more Muslims who openly disagree with them now. Their Muftis never issue an edict that kingship in one family is contrary to the Qur'an. They know they will lose their neck.

WHERE IS THE SEGREGATION OF SEXES? Just one verse is enough.
9:71 Believing men and believing women are colleagues of one another. They enjoin virtue and forbid vice. Together, they help establish the Divinely System of Life, and set up the Economic Order of Zakaat. This is how they obey God and His Messenger. These are the ones on whom God showers His grace of success. Certainly, God is Exalted in Power, Wise.
[The believing men and women do not deliver empty lectures. They enjoin virtue and forbid vice by personal example, knowing that the Qur’an is the Eternal Criterion of right and wrong. 2:185. ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’, ‘Right’ and ‘Wrong’ are not vague entities. The Qur’an clearly defines them in 2:177 and many other verses. In short, good is all that helps people and evil is all that hurts them]
