Enough of this Politically Correct nonsense !! Lets call a spade a spade, Saudi Arabia the home of Islam, where millions of Muslims went on Haj (pilgrimage) last week, is an apartheid state. And their version of Islam is racist. At least if you go by UN definition.
Lets look at the Facts:
They are building a fence to keep out terrorist. We know that when a state does this it is called an apartheid fence. Thats what Saudi Arabia, the EU, and people like the peanut president call Israel’s fence. So Saudi Arabia must be an apartheid state.
From Bad Fences by John R. Bradley TNR Issue date 03.01.04.The Saudi government says smugglers from its neighbor provide the explosives and weapons used by radical Islamists, who carried out two massive suicide attacks against civilian targets in Saudi Arabia last year, killing more than 50 and injuring hundreds. Saudi Arabia, one of the most vocal critics of Israel’s security fence, is even emulating Israel’s example, erecting a highly contentious barrier along its porous frontier–part of a larger plan to build an electronic surveillance system across the entire length of the kingdom’s land and sea borders.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Yemen is says that the Saudi apartheid fence is really a land grab..Isn’t that what the UN says about the Israeli Fence.
The history of Saudi-Yemeni enmity makes the Yemen government wary of working with Riyadh, especially on border issues. In fact, this week, a Yemeni delegation arrived in Riyadh for emergency talks about the fence, after the Yemenis submitted an official complaint to the Saudi government. The 2000 treaty demarcating the common border stated that twelve miles on either side of the border should be neutral territory. Yemen’s complaint states that, by building the wall in the middle of that territory, Saudi Arabia is effectively confiscating this neutral land. Ordinary Yemenis I spoke with in Sa’ada share the government’s anger: They even still bitterly refer to Najran and Abha, two towns inside Saudi Arabia that used to have close links with Yemen before a 1934 border war, as Yemeni cities.
What would the UN Say about a country where the public practice of any religion other than Islam, including Christianity and Judaism, the presence of churches, and open possession of Christian religious materials are outlawed .Where Anyone breaking this law may be imprisoned or deported to their port of origin. A state wont even let a foreigner bring in a bible or where people have to put Christmas trees in dark rooms so they aren’t found out. The state is Saudi Arabia.
The UN once called Zionism racist, yet Israel (what Saudi Arabia calls it the Zionist entity) allows true freedom of religion. The Israeli government zealously guards the rights of people to practice their any faith they choose. Islam as practiced in Saudi Arabia is RACIST. Just read this article from Arutz Sheva.
Saudi Arabia Bars Bible-Bearing Flight Attendant

A Bible-bearing Christian flight attendant has been barred by her British employer from flying to Saudi Arabia, where Christianity is illegal.
The flight attendant, who works for British Midland Airways (BMI), is “a committed Christian [who] likes to take her Bible, which was once her mother’s, with her when she travels,” according to journalist Claire Bergen.
The British Foreign Office backed the airline. “The importation [to Saudi Arabia] and use of narcotics, alcohol, pork products and religious books, apart from the Quran (Koran), and artifacts are forbidden,” it stated. The London Telegraph quoted a BMI official as saying, “We issue advice to all our staff and passengers that these are the guidelines. She is saying she wants to carry her Bible with her. We are saying we cannot start designing rules around individuals when we have several hundred members of staff. To take every personal preference into account would be impossible.”
The stewardess has taken the case to an industrial (labor) court.
It is not the first time that religious practice of airline workers has been curtailed because of Saudi rules. A flight attendant working for British Airways (BA) was forbidden to wear her cross visibly on the route to Saudi Arabia.
Even Christmas trees are banned in the oil-rich kingdom, which claims to allow religious freedom. An Iowa woman wrote in the Wichita Eagle earlier this month about her experience in 2003. “Christianity was not allowed to be practiced,” wrote Charlotte Brock Rady. “Shopping in the back alleys of Jeddah one night, we discovered a market that had hidden away upstairs in a dark room a small artificial Christmas tree and lights.”
Another worker in the country reported that her tree was confiscated at the border.
Nevertheless, on a recent visit to Princeton University, Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal declared, “Arab tradition and Muslim tradition is geared towards having an open mind. Muslim religion accepts Christianity and Judaism.”
Last year, a Saudi Arabian court sentenced a teacher to 40 months in prison and 750 lashes for discussing the Bible and praising Jews.
He was charged with promoting a “dubious ideology, mocking religion, saying the Jews were right, discussing the Gospel and preventing students from leaving class to wash for prayer,” according to a local newspaper report.
A report in 2005 by the U.S. State Department criticized Saudi Arabia, saying religious freedoms “are denied to all but those who adhere to the state-sanctioned version of Sunni Islam.”
Please don’t talk to me about the “moderate Saudi government” or the “religion of peace.” That is simply politically correct BS. Saudi Arabia is an Apartheid State and as the home of the most Holy Sites in Islam, it practices a Racist religion.
