    As long as Saudi oil is seen as a valuable resource for US oil corporations, the US will maintain relations with the feudal regime regardless of what that means for the rights of Saudi people, Sara Flounders, of the International Action Center, told RT.

    RT: Time to time we hear about executions and human rights violations in Saudi Arabia. How do you see the situation the country at the moment?

    Sara Flounders: Saudi Arabia from the very beginning has had a very special relationship with the US based on oil, based on huge military support for a completely corrupt feudal regime. The punishment, the absence of any rights for the people go hand and hand. It is not covered here and it should be known because there is one beheading on average every four days in Saudi Arabia, it is so common. Along with other horrendous forms of punishment, of course the beheadings are absolutely outrageous, offensive around the world, [there’s] great outrage when it is carried out by ISIS, but when it’s done in Saudi Arabia it’s not even publicized. And other punishments, to sentence someone to 1000 lashes, that is almost a death sentence. It is so horrendously torturous. And these are common punishments in Saudi Arabia.

    Where's the outrage? Where's the calls for regime change? Why aren't the people in Washington and the mass media hyperventilating over this evil regime's human rights violations?

    Why aren't you?

    US Senators Demand Saudi King Halt Flogging of Blogger

    A bipartisan group of top U.S. senators is demanding that Saudi Arabia, a key American ally, stop the "barbaric" whipping of a dissident sentenced to 1,000 lashes for criticizing Islamic religious leaders.

    The eight Republicans and Democrats wrote Saudi King Abdullah to warn that "further violence" against blogger Raif Badawi will "unfortunately be a source of continued divergence between our two countries," Fox News reported Tuesday.

    Badawi received 50 lashes on Jan. 9 in the first of 20 weekly sets of public whippings. Saudi authorities rescheduled a second round of beatings scheduled Friday after a doctor examined Badawi and found that the wounds from the first whippings had not healed. He was also sentenced to five years in prison.

    Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, imposes floggings and amputations for a variety of crimes and beheading for offenses such as murder, rape, blasphemy, adultery and witchcraft.

    No word yet on when these U.S. senators will demand the Saudi king stop funding and arming Muslim extremists.

    CLASSIFIED 28 PAGES OF 9/11 REPORT SHIELDS SAUDI INVOLVEMENT

    Since the early days after the Sept. 11 attacks, when news emerged that most of the airline hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, dark allegations have lingered about official Saudi ties to the terrorists.

    Fueling the suspicions: 28 still-classified pages in a congressional inquiry on 9/11 that raise questions about Saudi financial support to the hijackers in the United States prior to the attacks.

    Both the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama have refused to declassify the pages on grounds of national security. But critics, including members of Congress who have read the pages in the tightly guarded, underground room in the Capitol where they are held, say national security has nothing to do with it. U.S. officials, they charge, are trying to hide the double game that Saudi Arabia has long played with Washington, as both a close ally and petri dish for the world’s most toxic brand of Islamic extremism.
