Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For one, 9 of the 11 terrorists on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia.

Regarding Saudi Arabia: its regime is a brutal, backward (not to say primitive) theocracy which can be compared to the sociopolitical order that existed in Europe some 1000 years ago. It's a regime which regularly executes people on the public square for various crimes, which chops hands and feet off for theft, which stones for adultery and beheads for rape. It's a regime which uses religious police to control its citizens; police which whips those wearing 'western atire'. If the US or French police whipped women wearing the Muslim veil, you'd call them racist bigots - wouldn't you? Yet you see nothing wrong in Saudi Arabia! How telling of your values. Finally, it's a regime which tolerates nothing but Islam on its land. There are NO churches. NO synagogues. NO temples other than those used to worship Allah. Non Muslims are prohibited from marrying Muslims - unless they convert. And finally, as I said above, the Saudi 'royal family' (Hah) practices Wahhabism and finances religious fanatics (also called Imams) around the world to preach Jihad - as I said in my previous post.

Sadly, many of the characteristics observed in Saudi Arabia can also be seen in other countries run by Islamic theocracies - Iran, Morocco, Egypt, ... etc.
