Saudi Arabia

The catalyst of demise for all governments and leaders in the past who are now in the dust of history is the thinking that killing your critics will make the protest go away.

Saudi Arabia’s execution of a prominent Shite cleric for inciting protests against the royal rule may well be the beginning of the end of authoritarian Saudi rule.

It was an ill-advised and stupid decision by the arrogance of power. Killing an enemy never ends a conflict. It encourages the weak, the fringe, and the heretofore silent majority to boldly act in the loudness of violence.

Shame on Saudi Arabia.
