According to Freedom House’sWorld Index, Saudi Arabia belongs to the ‘worst of the worst’ countries in the world.
Despite such an appalling human rights record, the kingdom is the West’s oldest and one of our closest allies in the Arab world.
This is our history. It is nothing to be proud of.
The report is not particularly optimistic about our chances of actually getting this human-rights violating, terror sponsoring, genocide inciting state to change its ways. It suggests "managing the problem" -- reasonably enough, but not good enough.More >>
Hillary Clinton's frustrated one-liner at the Benghazi hearing may be remembered for some time to come. Facing determined questioning about why the White House spun a bizarre story about a protest tied to an anti-Islam video -- a protest that did not happen -- to explain the Benghazi attack, she practically throws up her arms and complains, "what difference did it make?"
A lot. In line with the scenario put forth by Ambassador Rice, the White House felt compelled to apologize to the Islamic world for instigating the attack on its own people by Islamist jihadists. In the real world, we know there was no link between a YouTube video no one had seen and the death of four Americans.
In the scenario put forth by the White House, America was to blame for its own misfortune -- and they didn't change their story until long after the facts had come in.More >>
When the President of Egypt called Jews the descendants of apes and pigs, he really should have anticipated that the Jews controlling American media would kick up an inconvenient fuss, he says with a shoulder-shrugging whadayagannado look, as an American diplomatic mission's jaws collectively drop.
“[Morsi] did not say the Jewish community was making a big deal of this, but he said something [to the effect] that the only conclusion you could read was that he was implying it,” Coons said. “The conversation got so heated that eventually Senator McCain said to the group, ‘OK, we’ve pressed him as hard as we can while being in the boundaries of diplomacy,’” Coons said. “We then went on to discuss a whole range of other topics.”
Come on, Morsi. Tell us what you really mean. Obviously, we must have missed the context while you were telling us about the context. H/T BCF
For the record, here are just some of the comments we've seen:
If drooling, blood-drinking Satanists managed to somehow take over a country's justice system, how would their application of the law differ from this latest incident in Muslim Brotherhood-owned Egypt?
The girl in the latest case was so frightened that on the wedding night she locked her husband outside the bedroom and eventually escaped back to her parents, local media reports say.
The husband is reported to be considering legal action to get either her or his dowry back.
Saudi Arabia: home to thousands of pious, culturally-rich pedophile serial rapists.
You think that's terrible? Shut up, you hateful Islamophobe. Don't you know that the Prophet Mohammed's favorite wife was six years old when they married? Obviously, you are too spiritually barren to realize the beautiful sanctity of bearded old men consummating their love with girls who are still at the age where they play with dolls.
