    Saudi Arabia and ISIS are really pretty much the same thing, ideology-wise and in terms of how evil they are.

    They are ISIS. I wish the Unites States would wake up. They are our enemy.

    Also, the last sentence of the article is rich. "Saudi law allows for execution in cases for murder, drug cases and rape." Unless it's the Saudi princes who are known for all of those things. Effin hypocrites.

    To be fair, it's not like Iran is much better, human rights - wise (although the people of Iran, despite their crazy Mullahs, seem to be much more educated and civilized on average, compared to Saudi people (and I know I am generalizing here)).

    Perhaps bc I'm not sure what they have done to people that have spoken out against them. Women have more right for sure and they aren't behind the terrorist orgs like Al Qaeda, ISIS. It's not close, imo.

    More detail here:

    E.g.:

    Both terrible, repressive governments and sponsors of terror, just representing two different versions of Islamic ideology.

    ^ATW- Agreed. That's terrible too. The main difference is that those are crappy laws for their citizens. You wanna do those things - don't live in Iran. Saudi is behind most of the major problems in the world when it comes to terror. Muslims are by far the biggest victims of ISIS, Al Qaeda aka Saudi.

    That sounds right, but an oil shortage like the '70s would ruin us more than any overseas barbarism.

    At least the Saudi Kingdom is not a Christian nation. It would really be despicable then.

    Middle East without Mullas in Iran/Zionist of Israel and their terrorist militias is a good place

    There are more women in college in Iran than men.

    That doesn't negate their horrible human rights record.

    Israel isn't a democracy and they do what they want like most places that are run by dictators.

    Their human rights record is trash or should only Jews enjoy those rights?

    I was referring to the crazy right wing settler types, although I know that's not what exiled meant.

    ATW chooses to ignore how racist they are to all non Jews. I can post videos of black people protesting and what's said to them but y'all can guess.

    Interesting how Israel has been brought up bc we all know Saudi and Israel are working with each now more than ever bc they're scared of Iran.
