Assalamu Alaikum brothers & sisters

Hello everyone

My name is Majed Alasmari

Born in 1983 in Jeddah in so-called "Kingdom of Saudi Arabia" which occupies most of the Arabian peninsula. I do not recognize this evil regime even though I still carry it's citizenship, because it has utilized an unauthentic Islam:
- to oppress me and Muslims in & out of the country.
- to waste resources on royals, hypocrites, and the west.
- to keep the true religion of Salam (peace) & Justice apart from practice & propagation.

Who made all this possible?
In short, it was Britain's deed, the Arab sheikhs it implanted, and thousands of hypocrites and others that were fooled by Abdulaziz that he had good intent.

My story in short is: I've been against this regime and all others in the Arab world most of my life because there are no human rights, justice, and no value to life if one dares to defy.
The true beginning of my activism started in 2013 in Egypt and that didn't go well.
I was lucky not to die in Raba'a Square massacre in which the Police & Military shot & injured me.
Returning later to Jeddah, I posted a number of youtube videos discussing reform which  got me into Dhahban political prison for 2.5 years. Precious time from my life taken away because of practicing a basic human right with the excuse that what I did was against Islam.

The truth of the matter is that the religion & laws implemented in my country are a concoction far from the mercy of Islam.

Nowadays, I live away from the evil Saudis where I can practice my freedom of expression as I like.

For the time being, the content is all in Arabic.

My dream is that we all live in peace & freedom as we were created to strive for that goal for us & others.

Peace

Well, it is brave of you to challenge the regime.
I'll prepare an answer later.

humbert:
I strongly sympathize with your stand against the brutal dictatorship that governs Saudi Arabia. Once again, as we have seen so often in history, they impose their version of religion (Islam in this case) for no other reason than to keep themselves in power. It is no different that [for example] the Spanish Inquisition - just change the religion from Islam to Catholic.

When you were at Raba Square, were you protesting against Hosni Mubarak or did you belong to the Muslim Brotherhood? Be that as it may, just remember -- one enemy at a time :)

Where are you living now? Obviously not in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and let alone Yemen.

BTW - at least you trim your beard :)

I lived in Egypt after the revolution, during Mohammad Mursi's democratic rule, and after the military coup which is to this day still destroying the lives of the people of Egypt.
I had a small business, everything was going well. People were living free of any kind of oppression during the rule of the MB president Mursi.
Then came the coup, when he was detained by the Republican Guard, his supporters staged a large protest outside the base where he was being held. During the afternoon prayer (Asr), the republican guard shot and killed many of the worshipers. The sum of protesters killed was more than 50. I was watching on TV and YouTube during all this bloodshed and it wasn't my cause to reinstate a kidnapped president who I didn't elect as I was a foreigner.
Then came the second massacre which occurred close to the Raba'a sit-in.
The number of protesters killed was around a hundred.
As a Muslim who doesn't belong to any group other than greater Islam, and as a human-being that cannot stand the injustice of innocent people killed for no other reason then political greed in power, I chose on my own freewill to join the people in Raba'a square on August 2, 2013 against the bloodshed and monstrosities being committed by the security forces against peaceful unarmed civilians for no other reason then saying "NO" to secular extremism that overthrew the first president of Egypt to be elected in a free and fair election.
I was there and witnessed some of the most beautiful peaceful men & women & childern that occupied Raba'a who were of all political affiliations. Even though lots of them were Mb, Salafi's and independent Muslim Egyptians, there were also Christians and foreigners from Europe and elsewhere also witnessing that historic event that ended tragically.
There were absolutely no guns inside the sit-in.
I was surprised that tear-gas is not so bad in the eyes as it is in suffocating and the burning sensation in the skin. It's sad and disgusting to see small children and babies  feel what I felt. Not being able to breath because of that evil chemical that should be banned is quite a horrible feeling, imaging the kids and babies that felt the same.
Since being shot numerous times with the smaller shot-gun pellets and two large ones in my back, I've seen X-Ray images of my abdomen that look quite funny.
One of them resides by my right eye.
The large-sized pellets which are lethal, one I had removed in Egypt and the other in the prison hospital in Jeddah.
My injuries compared to the hundreds of dead & others graver injuries are child's play.
What happened on August 14, 2013 should not be justified under any circumstances.
It wasn't my fight BTW as you said "one enemy at a time"  and I  had no activity against the Saudi government in Egypt, but it was a beginning that killed the fear inside me of speaking out against injustice.

I'm now living in safety where I can practice my rights as any other human should in a place other then the ones you mentioned.

Well, I’m going to answer you, aa1234779.

As far as Saudi Arabia is concerned, you say: “I do not recognize this evil regime even though I still carry it's citizenship, because it has utilized an unauthentic Islam:
- to oppress me and Muslims in & out of the country.
- to waste resources on royals, hypocrites, and the west.
- to keep the true religion of Salam (peace) & Justice apart from practice & propagation.”

1st point: Does Saudi Arabia want to oppress Muslims, or more likely, Is it not oppressing Muslims by imposing the strict rules of Islam – to gain the consent of a small minority of hard liners?
You probably know the Kaaba, the big cube at the center of the grand mosque of Mecca. And even more likely, you remember the Grand Mosque seizure that occurred during November and December 1979 when insurgents calling for the overthrow of the House of Saud took over Masjid al-Haram in Mecca.
It’s only the then that the Saudi King Khaled implemented a stricter enforcement of Shariah and gave the ulama and religious conservatives more power over the next decade, and religious police became more assertive.

2nd point: Saudi Arabia is highly dependent on oil. And its citizens benefit from grants. For instance, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has ordered the government to pay out 1,000 riyals (about $266) to state employees each month in 2018. And it’s true that the KSA has enjoyed friendly relations with the West, especially the United States, and the wave of arrests in 2017 demonstrates ruthlessness of crown prince.
But chances are all this won’t last: oil resources are dwindling.

3d point: So you think it’s not possible to practice a “true Islam” in Saudi Arabia?
But is it possible to practice a religion that is 1500 years old? Concerning Islam, the answer is no according to the scholar and author Majid oukacha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNnBuwIiv-M
By the way, if we read the old testament or the Koran, we can see that eating pork is not allowed.
But there is nothing about processed food, because at that time, there was neither Mc Chicken, nor Pepsi. And if they are unhealthy, are they “halal”?

Other quotes: “Then came the second massacre which occurred close to the Raba'a sit-in.
The number of protesters killed was around a hundred.” Allegedly, the number of casualties was close to 600.

“I lived in Egypt after the revolution.” I'm now living in safety where I can practice my rights”
So you don’t live in Saudi Arabia, nor in Egypt. You are probably living in a country with a properly functioning democracy, where Muslims are free to criticize the religion. Maybe you chose another “declared Islamic State”, like Mauritania, Yemen, Iran, Pakistan or Afganistan. If you chose a country where Islam is only a State religion, you had a wide choice too, Morocco, Iraq, Somalia, the UAE...
