You've heard that Saudi Arabia is our ally in the fight against terrorism, right?
Then consider this.
A new report by Freedom House, an organization headed by former CIA Director James Woolsey, says that Saudi Arabia has been spreading hate propaganda in mosques in the United States.
The report concludes that the Saudi government propaganda reflects a "totalitarian ideology of hatred that can incite violence" and the fact that it is "being mainstreamed within our borders through the efforts of a foreign government, namely Saudi Arabia , demands our urgent attention."
The report concludes, "not only does the government of Saudi Arabia not have a right - under the first amendment or any other legal document - to spread hate ideology within U.S. borders, it is committing a human rights violation by doing so."
My question is, why can't the government do something about it?
They should close any mosque that is receiving and using this stuff and penalize the Saudis for sending it.
The best way to do this to become energy independent so these oil producing nations no longer have any power over us.
