Saudi Arabia is one of the most oppressive countries in the world.
It oppresses its own people,
and spreads Wahhabist hatred and terror around the world.
The West's alliance with this
shames the West,
and has done nothing to make Saudi Arabia better.
In Saudi Arabia,
Jews and atheists cannot exist,
Christians cannot practice,
non-Sunni Muslims are oppressed
in this disgusting apartheid state.
It was even worse than ingratitude.
Saving Saudi Arabia from Saddam
was in a way the "cause" of 9/11,
carried out by religious fanatic Saudis furious at infidel troops on their soil.
(Even though they were there to save them!)
Of course, any "cause" will do for hallucinatory fanatics like Bin Laden.
If not "troops on the soil" it would be some other made-up reason.
How a British jihadi saw the light, April 21, 2007
- "Ed Hussain, once a proponent of radical Islam in London,
tells how his time as a teacher in Saudi Arabia led him to turn against extremism".
"Standing in Karantina that day, I reminisced and marvelled over what I previously considered as wrong: mixed-race, mixed-religion marriages. The students to whom I described life in modern multi-ethnic Britain could not comprehend that such a world of freedom, away from "normal" Saudi racism, could exist.
Racism was an integral part of Saudi society. My students often used the word "nigger" to describe black people. Even dark-skinned Arabs were considered inferior to their lighter-skinned cousins."
Fawning over the Saudis - Stephen Pollard, 1 Nov 2007, disgusted by the Saudi state visit to Britain.
"The notion that Saudi Arabia is somehow our ally is sickeningly misguided. The House of Saudi might, in some strange theoretical world, be less bad than an alternative Saudi regime. But in the here and now, the Saudi government is a cancer on liberty and freedom."
The Shame Of Groveling For $100 Oil, January 15, 2008.
Bush still tries to pretend that Saudi Arabia is an "ally".
Bush has completely failed to confront Saudi Arabia since 9/11.
"Despite rhetoric about our so-called ally's cooperation in the war on terror, it's still teaching anti-Western hatred in its textbooks and schools, still spreading radical Wahhabism to our shores, still freeing terrorists, still giving immunity to al-Qaida financiers ... and still allowing clerics to rally Saudi's sons to join the al-Qaida insurgents in Iraq.
In fact, Saudi nationals account for the largest share of foreign al-Qaida fighters in Iraq ... Of the foreign terrorists entering Iraq ... 41% were Saudi citizens ...
Not much has changed in Saudi Arabia over the past six years.
Only now, it's richer than ever, flush with petrodollars that are helping finance the jihad."
Saudi "Anti-Witchcraft" Unit.
Not only does the Saudi state believe in witchcraft,
it even has a division hunting witches
and trying hard to "break" their spells.
"The unit is charged with apprehending sorcerers and reversing the detrimental effects of their spells.
In the case of the wolf's head, the Anti-Witchcraft Unit in Tabouk was able to break the spell.
The Anti-Witchcraft Unit was created in order to educate the public about the danger of sorcerers
and "combat manifestations of polytheism and reliance on other Gods"".
Obviously all other Gods are ridiculous.
Saudi Arabia - The ISIS-like state that the West supports.
gets 10 years jail, plus 1,000 lashes of flogging (which may kill him)
for criticising Saudi Arabia's Islamic law.
They charged him with being an "apostate", as if that should be a crime.
(It is not clear that he even is an apostate.)
A Russian church for a Saudi mosque?, December 3, 2008.
Russia agrees to allow a new mosque in Moscow
if and only if a Christian church is allowed in Saudi Arabia.
Technically, I don't agree with any restrictions like this on freedom of religion.
But you have to laugh at this being stuck to the obnoxious Saudis.
If everyone did this, maybe Saudi Arabia would be forced to change.
Saudis shred Bibles at Customs:
"if you have a Bible at customs when you enter the airport,
and if they find the Bible, that the Bible is taken and put in the shredder.
If you have more than one Bible you will be taken into custody, and if you have a quantity of Bibles you will be given 70 lashes for sure - you could even be executed."
All women must have a
who controls their life
and is allowed to beat them.
A 42 year old female doctor cannot escape her father.
She needs his permission to marry.
He won't give it, so he remains her "guardian".
She is not allowed receive her salary herself. Instead it goes to him, as her "guardian".
"A Saudi woman can't even buy a phone without the guardian's permission".
Women are even sent to prison for "disobeying" their guardian.
The Islamic Middle East won the
the discovery of oil.
They won vast amounts of undeserved wealth,
and had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reform their backward societies
and join the modern world.
Sadly, much of the Islamic Middle East has squandered this opportunity,
instead deciding to use the money to export
their primitive medieval ideas
to the more advanced countries
(the ones who invented oil discovery
and all its technological uses).
What a shame that oil was found here, of all places.
What a shame that such a primitive medieval society
and could therefore spread its philosophy worldwide.
Hopefully, this is just a phase. This is jihad's moment,
which will soon be lost.
In a few decades, we will all switch to
and other technologies,
and the Middle East will sink back into poverty and obscurity.
It will be sad for them, but it will be a much safer world.
- Massive gas deposits now exploitable in US.
The sooner Saudi Arabia becomes irrelevant again, the better for the world.
"Blood for Oil",
by Cox and Forkum,
sums up the real blood sacrifice that western countries make to get Middle Eastern oil.
What a shame that oil was found here, of all places.
A great idea:
is trying to give us choice at the pumps - so we can buy Saudi-free oil.
I would happily pay more to buy my petrol from a free country like
Canada or Norway,
if I could avoid financing oppressive Islamic states like Saudi Arabia.
I would love to have the choice at the pumps.
I would love to be able to boycott Saudi oil.
In Feb 2012, young Saudi
issued various tweets about the Prophet Muhammad
that seem harmless to western eyes,
but earned him calls for the death sentence in the primitive state of Saudi Arabia.
He tried to flee to safety in New Zealand,
arrested him en route
and deported him back to Saudi Arabia to face possible death.
He was not executed, but rather jailed for over 1 year, released in Oct 2013.
The tweets that got
arrested by "moderate" Islamic state Malaysia in Feb 2012, and deported back to Saudi Arabia to face possible death.
They are addressed to the Prophet Muhammad on his birthday:
"On your birthday, I will say that I have loved the rebel in you, that you've always been a source of inspiration to me, and that I do not like the halos of divinity around you. I shall not pray for you.
On your birthday, I find you wherever I turn. I will say that I have loved aspects of you, hated others, and could not understand many more.
On your birthday, I shall not bow to you. I shall not kiss your hand. Rather, I shall shake it as equals do, and smile at you as you smile at me. I shall speak to you as a friend, no more."
What is shocking is that he still admires the Prophet Muhammad, who would certainly kill him for saying this.
I fail to see how any "liberal" could admire the Prophet Muhammad,
but I wish liberal Muslims like this all the best anyway, in their struggle to define a new type of faith
that is peaceful rather than violent.
Louise Mensch is brilliant.
She doesn't hold back:
"I'm disgusted and revolted, as I think most people in the UK are, having watched our national flag be lowered in respect for a tyrant whom we regard as something less than we find scraped on the base of our shoes.
When David Cameron and Prince Charles go to represent the United Kingdom they don't go in my name.
They are spitting on women, they are spitting on gay people, they are spitting on freedom of expression.
You say ISIS are worse, they most certainly are not. ... There is no difference between them.
I hope this will mark a turning point where we no longer allow the Foreign Office to go and be lickspittles to foreign dictators and pretend that the British people give their consent. They do not."
Christian submission to our brutal
The flag at Westminster Abbey was lowered to half mast
to honour a dictator who arrests people for Christianity.
Question: Has there ever been a more shameful day in the history of Westminster Abbey? If so, when?
Smart comment, 23 Jan 2015.
He is talking about
Saudi Arabia's gift to the world:
is ranked the worst level
by Freedom House:
"Citizens of the UAE cannot change their government democratically.
The UAE has never held an election.
Laws prohibit criticism of the government, ruling families, and friendly governments"
Freedom of religion in the UAE.
"The [UAE] sometimes blocked websites containing religious information. These sites included information on the Bahá'í faith, Judaism, negative critiques of Islam, and testimonies of former Muslims who converted to Christianity. The Government's Information and Privacy Law provides penalties for using the Internet to oppose Islam".
Briton jailed for 4 years in Dubai
after customs (allegedly) find microscopic speck of cannabis stuck to the bottom of his shoe.
Campaign group Fair Trials International advised visitors to Dubai and Abu Dhabi to "take extreme caution".
The UAE comes top for women's rights!
Some studies discredit themselves.
The RHS column here shows the scores for "Women treated with respect"
Social Progress Index
To see the stats, go to
Social Progress Index
- "Data Table"
- "Add aspect to compare"
- "Women treated with respect".
This says women's rights in UAE and Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
are better than in UK and Ireland and Canada and US!
The Social Progress Index is clearly worthless.
The ingratitude of Kuwait.
America saved Kuwait from extinction,
but it counts for nothing with them or the rest of the Islamic world.
They will despise the West
no matter what it does.
They hate Israel and the West not for what they do,
because they are not Muslims.
The lesson of Kuwait
is that America should not care about the good opinion
of the Arab street.
America should not care
if people in Pakistan, Egypt and Kuwait
They will hate it anyway, no matter what it does.
They will not have reasonable opinions
in these countries until
they have democracy, freedom of speech,
and a free press.
Until then, America should ignore them.
America must pursue policy in its own self-interest,
and in the interest of the free and democratic countries
of the world.
Whether non-democratic peoples like it or not
should not trouble anybody.
Tragedy Of The Arabs
by Ralph Peters
- Ignore the hate-filled Arab media.
Ignore the Arab street.
Concentrate on doing what has to be done.
Sharia in Kuwait:
Abdul Aziz Mohamed El Baz
was arrested by Kuwait in Dec 2012, and got 1 year jail for
contempt of religion, blasphemy and attempting to spread atheism.
Saudi Arabia sits at the UN.
"There are 50 million Arabs.
What does it matter if we lose 10 million people to kill all the Jews?
The price is worth it."
- The unelected thug
King Ibn Saud
of Saudi Arabia
calling for a genocide of the Jews
when Israel was declared a state, 1947.
Luckily, the Muslims failed to carry out their genocide.
Who I block:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following:
(a) Make threats.
(b) Accuse me of crimes.
(c) Comment on my appearance.
(d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.)
(e) Complain to my employer.
Yes, people do all these things.
