  1. Fact #2 isn’t right, women do have jobs o_O the male workers are the ones who got banned from working in shopping malls LOL. and the driving banned didn’t occur until 2011, past that there wasn’t any law against it (for a political reasons not religious, to give the western countries something to keep them occupied :P). Fact #3 isn’t true also, considering Saudi arabia is located between the Red Sea and the Arabian gulf, The word “Sha’eb شعيب” means River and in english it was translated by the same word “Sha’eb” and yeah there’s about 163 Sha’eb as far as i know

    • Thanks for your help, I have searched more sources and fixed the two facts.
      Warm Regards!!
