Record Beheadings and the Mass Arrest of Christians – Is it ISIS? No it’s Saudi Arabia

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 10.36.07 AMIn the past month, a group of radical Islamic extremists based in the Middle East beheaded at least 23 people and enforced a ban on Christianity by arresting a group of people for practicing the faith in a private home.

No, I’m not talking about ISIS. The real culprit is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, one of the America’s closest global allies.

I have highlighted the inhumanity of the Saudi regime frequently recently in order to demonstrate the incredible hypocrisy of U.S. foreign policy. While America’s phony politicians and useless mainstream media will often hype anti-Chrtistian bigotry and humanitarian issues when it suits the status quo message, the true driver of U.S. foreign policy can be summarized with two words: CORPORATE PROFITS.

Of course, it’s not the average American who benefits from militarty-industrial complex profit margins. No, the American public is offered as a sacrifice on the alter of the cash flows for the 0.01%. The American citizenry is expected to lose its sons and daughters in battle abroad, while surrendering a middle class lifestyle at home, just so the political class and its oligarch masters can add another couple billion to their bank accounts. If American foreign policy actually had an non-economic motive to it, we wouldn’t be close allies with an inhumane feudal kingdom, which was also likely responsible for the attacks of 9/11.

As I have outlined recently:

Saudi Arabia Passes New Law that Declares Atheists “Terrorists”

Meet the U.S. Allies – Saudi Arabia Passes Draconian, Medieval Laws to Crush Dissent

Saudi Man Receives 3 Year Prison Sentence and 450 Lashes for Being Gay

Saudi Human Rights Lawyer and Activist Jailed for 15 Years for Free Speech Under New “Anti-Terror” Law

Two Congressmen Push for Release of 28-Page Document Showing Saudi Involvement in 9/11

While fake “Christian” politicians in D.C. and on television may have no problem ignoring the lack of rights in Saudi Arabia when it comes to atheists and homosexuals, they may have a harder time overlooking the following:

Dozens of Christians arrested at a prayer meeting in Saudi Arabia need America’s help, according to a key lawmaker who is pressing the State Department on their behalf.

Some 28 people were rounded up Friday by hard-line Islamists from the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice in the home of an Indian national in the eastern Saudi city of Khafji, and their current situation is unknown, according to human rights advocates. 

“Saudi Arabia is continuing the religious cleansing that has always been its official policy,” Nina Shea, director of the Washington-based Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, told “It is the only nation state in the world with the official policy of banning all churches. This is enforced even though there are over 2 million Christian foreign workers in that country. Those victimized are typically poor, from Asian and African countries with weak governments.”

In Friday’s crackdown, several Bibles were confiscated, according to reports from the Kingdom.

This isn’t just hyperbole from FoxNews either. Human Rights Watch has been all over this for a while and in its World Report for 2013 noted the following:

Saudi Arabia does not tolerate public worship by adherents of religions other than Islam and systematically discriminates against its Muslim religious minorities, in particular Shia and Ismailis. The chief mufti in March called for the destruction of all churches in the Arabian Peninsula. In 2012, authorities made arrests for expression of religious opinion, including, in February, of Hamza Kashgari, whom Malaysia extradited to the kingdom on blasphemy charges related to his fictitious Twitter dialogue with the Prophet Muhammad.

In June, prosecutors arrested Ra’if Badawi on the charge of operating the Saudi Liberals website, deemed insulting to Islam. By August, all 35 Christian Ethiopian men and women arrested in December for “illicit mingling” during a religious service had been deported.

Saudi Arabia does not allow political or human rights associations. In December 2011, the authorities denied the Justice Center for Human Rights a license, and did not reply to requests for a license by the Saudi Human Rights Monitor, which registered in Canada in May.

Despite all of that Human Rights Watch notes that…

Saudi Arabia is a key ally of the United States and European countries. The US did not publicly criticize any Saudi human rights violations except through annual reports. Some members of the US Congress have expressed skepticism about Saudi’s policy priorities. The US concluded a $60 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia, its largest anywhere to date.

The European Union also failed to publicly criticize human rights abuses in the kingdom, although the Subcommittee on Human Rights of the European Parliament in May held a rare hearing on human rights in Saudi Arabia.

If the above was happening in Iran, there would already be American bombs dropping on Tehran. Our foreign policy is a total joke and the whole world knows it.

But don’t worry serfs, at least defense contractor and former Edward Snowden employer Booz Allen Hamilton is making it rain. As I noted on Twitter:

  1. The Saudis are no more than religious fascists. It is interesting to note that the religious nutters in Saudi are heavily implicated in 9/11and creating religious unrest on Russia’s borders. The US degenerates have killed and maimed millions when the Saudis should have been dealt with. Oil talks and people are expendable.

  2. A sick joke to the millions that have been killed, maimed and displaced.

  3. kreiger—yes yes we know saudi arabia is muslim. are you demanding they be tolerant?

    who cares about them. the question is , if they are entitled to their ways, why isn’t the u.s. entitled to make it illegal for women in new york to wear full face coverings.

    i see it in new york now more and more like i did see in london.

    it’s a plague of cultural warfare. by permitting this culture, you encourage it IN AMERICA.

    this is about cultural warfare. the neo-facism of political correctness is a problem. conservative PRIDE in western culture is not a form of neo-natzi’ism as the neo-liberals want to paint it.

    what can you do?

    on other news, the recipient of wall street money, and backer of the inQtel founded palantir spying company , PETER THEIL, has now come out against the ‘ethos’ of startup culture. he was also recently bashing one of his investment horses—bitcoin. so how does a once vocal bitcoin advocate get into the pravda style political dialectics of advocating monopolism? a so called libertarian making his money from spying companies funded by governmetn and walls street?

    read below , and i’d like to hear your thoughts . i think the billiionarist ethos is changing. the silicon paved street will soon be no more.

  4. Imagine if this was taking place in Israel. Do You think that the MSM or the unMSM websites would be ignoring this?

  5. mr. burke , things like this don’t take place in israel, however the anti-semites would reflexively point out that the israeli’s are oppressing the muslims and are the cause of all the wrolds problems and that zionists are the primary reason the west is involved in imperialistic wars, despite the long history of world wars, colonlialism and imperialism before the existence of israel . the scapegoating game always goes on and you needn’t point that out by taking random non-sequitir stabs at them when stories are brough up about saudi arabia.

    be the better man.

  6. Let the Saudis and the entire middle east burn, the fewer left over the better! Oh and could you throw in the the Israeli terrorist state. Thanks

  7. It would be interesting to see Saudi articles concerning the USA from their blog perspective.

  8. 90% of those involved in 911 attack were Saudi nationals. Is Saudi Arabia really an ally?
