Saudi Arabia begins issuing cinema licences


Saudi Arabia began issuing licences on Thursday (March 1) to operate cinemas in the kingdom ahead of their reopening after a decades-long ban was lifted as part of a far-reaching liberalisation drive.

The move is another step towards opening the Saudi market to regional and international theatre chains, which have long eyed the kingdom as the Middle East’s last untapped mass market.

The culture and information ministry said it had “finalised the terms of licencing to restore cinema in Saudi Arabia”.

“Licencing commences immediately,” the ministry added in a statement.

The news comes as Dubai-based VOX Cinemas, the leading operator in the Middle East, launches its first public screening in Saudi Arabia, which runs through Saturday and aims to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease.

The screening in Riyadh will feature content from local producers including Myrkott Production and Telfaz Company, VOX said.

Qatari female jockey gallops into male-dominated world


A Qatari woman who created ripples by appearing on television without a headscarf has broken new ground as a jockey in the conservative Gulf country, where men usually hold the reins.

Maryam al-Subaiey has defied expectation and tradition — as well as any fear of controversy — to pursue her “dream” of racing horses, which even a nasty fall this year could not crush.

“I don’t have to do things that society expects from me as a woman,” Subaiey, 31, told AFP.

“I am expected to be a businesswoman and eventually get married and have kids.”

She adds: “But being a female athlete, this is not something that is considered Qatari.

“It’s just not expected. It’s very different.”

Racing against tradition

Subaiey’s dream came true on February 24 at Qatar’s pastoral Racing and Equestrian Club, a green oasis on the western fringes of the capital Doha.

There, on the undercard of an eight-race meeting, she took to the track for the very first time.

Subaiey didn’t win — she finished eleventh out of 14 runners in the “Thoroughbred Handicap” on her mount “Comedy Night.”

But more notable than her final position was the fact she competed at all.


Women have raced before in Qatar — indeed there was another non-Qatari female jockey in the same handicap and there are local media reports dating back to 2008 about a 14-year-old amateur riding at the equestrian club.

But although records are not conclusive, officials told AFP that Subaiey was the first ever Qatari female jockey to take part in such a ranking event.

“I still can’t believe that I am here,” she said immediately afterwards.

“The importance of my presence here isn’t just the fact that I am the first female Qatari jockey — I am here for all female Qataris and all female Khaleejis,” she said, referring to women from the Gulf.


Her groundbreaking ride also took many in attendance by surprise.

“To be honest, I didn’t think there were female jockeys here,” said one Western racegoer.

Subaiey is well-known among some Qataris.

Last year, she appeared on France 24 Arabic television to discuss how Qatari women view their role in society.

Disaster strikes

As part of her training to become a jockey, Subaiey has trained with noted British jockey Steve Smith Eccles at his school in the British “racing capital,” Newmarket.

She was training hard for up to six hours a day.

However, disaster struck in her second race back home in March.

She fell from her horse, sustaining severe injuries, including a double fracture to her pelvis.

“My family was so devastated, but they know I am going to go back to racing. They know I am stubborn and they know I can never say no,” she said.

Subaiey plans to get back in the saddle and continue her training in Newmarket in October.

“If anything, more than ever before, I have something to prove.”afp

Kagame hails Rwanda-Israel bond at AIPAC


Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame became the first African leader to address Washington’s biggest pro-Israel forum Sunday, hailing the Jewish state as an inspiration for his own country’s rebirth after genocide.

Kagame was commander of the rebel force that put an end to the 1994 slaughter of Rwandan Tutsis by Hutu extremists and has led the country since 2000, as it recovers from the conflict and becomes a regional economic success story.

In Washington to attend the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), he hailed the success of the State of Israel after the horrors of the Holocaust and pledged Rwanda’s friendship.

“The security of peoples who have once been targeted for extermination can never be exclusively physical,” Kagame told the delegates, who received him with warm applause.

“Until all ideologies which justify killing as a patriotic duty are defeated our world is not truly safe. Not for us, not for anyone.”

Israel’s relations with African governments have not always been easy.

“Together with friends like the United States, we must call for renewed global solidarity against the reckless efforts to deny genocide and to trivialize the victims,” he said.

“Israel has the right to exist and thrive as a full member the international community. This is not an infringement of the rights of any other people,” he declared.

Rwanda’s friendship with Israel is also a diplomatic boon for both countries, which have both relied on strong US support but have also tried the patience of Washington’s foreign policy establishment in recent years.

Under former president Barack Obama, the United States expressed concern at what they saw as an authoritarian drift in Kagame’s rule and in particular a 2015 reform to the constitution to allow him to run for a third term.

The White House also sparred with Netanyahu’s government, warning that settlement construction put the Middle East peace process in jeopardy.

In 2014, when Rwanda sat on the United Nations Security Council, Kigali abstained from a resolution that advocated for the end of Israel’s presence in the West Bank but was ultimately rejected.

US President Donald Trump’s new administration has so far proved more sympathetic to Israel’s ambitions, and both Rwanda and Israel hope for warm relations.

Speaking to AIPAC before Kagame, Israeli’s ambassador to Washington Ron Dermer said: “For the first time in years there is no daylight between our governments.”

Israel insists a peace deal with the Palestinians can only come through direct negotiations between the parties, without outside diplomatic pressure, a position that Kagame fully endorsed.

Some African political movements saw their own struggles against colonial rule reflected in the Palestinian fight for statehood — and many remember Israel’s military support for South Africa’s former apartheid regime.

But Israel has an active diplomatic engagement on the continent and has won friends through economic and technical cooperation with major players like Rwanda.

Last year, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toured four African countries — including Rwanda — and in October he is expected to meet around 30 leaders at an Israel-Africa summit in Togo.

Kagame visited Israel in 2008 and made clear at AIPAC that he sees the country as a friend and ally, rejecting what he sees as efforts in some quarters to delegitimatize Israeli statehood.

Lieutenant-General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, Commander-in-Chief of a Dubai Police, always had a really good propinquity with media and Khaleej Times is unapproachable that we had a renowned participation in a Dubai Police Chief’s efforts to keep Dubai protected and secure.

Once, in an speak with Khaleej Times, he discussed a vital confidence issues in Dubai in fact and elaborated on a measures being taken by a Dubai Police to keep Dubai ‘safe and secure’.

An clandestine consultant who has burst scores of rapist networks, destitute many organized gangs, stung many drug cartels and solved several murder mysteries, he always believed that a common male should have a feel of confidence while in Dubai.

Personally, we knew him for final 14 years as a male of firmness and an officer who had been certain and assured about what he was doing. For me, Lt.-Gen. Al Mazeina was a male with a pleasing face and a really good clarity of humour. Even while attending critical Press meets, he used to benefaction matters in a whimsical sense, though though losing a earnest of a matter.

As a comparison officer, his doors were always open to me and we had each leisure to ask him about a military activities even when he was  a executive of a General Department of Criminal Investigation. He always reputable media and found time to spend with them to listen to their points and answer their queries. He knew each contributor privately and was penetrating to solve their problems, if any.

He was a pure officer, even in front of a media. At a same time, he knew when and how to talk. On some questions that impact a confidentiality of a department, he had a grin as answer.

A new beginning of holding open meetings with residents to listen to their complaints and solve them on a mark is explanation of his transparency.

In a white kandoora and dishdasha, he would simply pass of as any other Emirati commoner. But, a slim six-footer’s speed displays a lively of an athlete. Behind his distributed grin was a intelligent sleuth with an X-Ray prophesy that could see by a false coming of a many worldly criminals.

For other military staff, Lt-Gen Al Mazeina was a chairman who treated all of them with respect, adore and care. He always speedy them to be satisfactory and to raise their skills, though during a same time, deliberate their charitable issues. For many in a Dubai Police, they mislaid an elder hermit along with a deliberation comparison officer. While he was despotic in gripping a law and sequence and preserving a authorised system, he always valued a tellurian rights of a people. His seductiveness in progressing a tellurian rights was manifest in his diagnosis of labourers’ issues in a emirate.

His efforts on shortening trade accidents, substantiating a special section to safeguard reserve and confidence of tourists, and expostulate opposite drug use were all proofs of a military officer with a vision.

Al Mazeina’s vital accomplishments

In his career of 33 years, Lt.-Gen. Al Mazeina was instrumental in elucidate a series of high-profile cases. Some of those are:

Wafi Mall heist in 2009
