U.S. allies in the news

Saudi Arabia's religious police ordered the arrest of 57 youths this week claiming they flirted with girls in malls in the city of Mecca.

Members of the commission, known as the Muttawa, patrol public areas to ensure the kingdom's brand of ultra-conservative morality is enforced, and this includes strict segregation of the sexes.

The Muttawa also cracked down on Valentine's Day by banning florists from selling red roses.
Interestingly enough, the source of this news is Iran's PRESS TV.
