Saudi Arabia launching campaign to improve image in the United States

Let's face it: America had more reason to bomb Saudi Arabia than to bomb Iraq. They looked the other way for years while Al Qaeda was built up, they have taught hatred and racism in their schools for years, they allow no freedom of religion, women are second class citizens who cannot drive cars alone or vote. 15 of the 19 September 11th hijackers were Saudis. The wonderful writer and researcher Daniel Pipes can fill in more details about the Saudis -

The Saudis' Covert PR Campaign

Khobar Massacre: "Don't be afraid, we won't kill Muslims"

Make The Saudis' Pay for Terror

And some of my own research:

Saudi Arabia's religious police stopped schoolgirls from leaving a blazing building because they were not wearing correct Islamic dress (15 girls died in the fire)

The US State Department's Report on Saudi Arabia's Freedom of Religion (or lack thereof)

Who could forget- Saudi Religious Police Say Barbie Is a Moral Threat (This is real, not from The Onion)

But don't take it from me - check out the blog of The Religious Policeman from Saudi Arabia
