Is this the Beginning of the End of the Saudi Kingdom?
I am a Muslim from India and I was very sad to see the treatment meted out to Ethiopians.
Greater Kings had ruled over Muslims in the past and none dared to touch Ethiopia because
of the commandment from our beloved prophet (peace be upon him). He had clearly stated
that Muslims should treat Ethiopians well no matter what

Media campaign against Ethiopians which virtually alleges that most Ethiopians are
in the Kingdom illegally, is in many ways just vilifying one particular section of
humankind. The campaign, as if the problem of sneaking these illegals through
the border happened only two weeks ago, is also unjustified.
I do not oppose the deporting of the Ethiopians rather the way Ethiopian
immigrants are being treated is very offensive. You can see that the way
they are being tortured and being killed by the civilians is just
unfair. Please provide this fair news in your news outlets. Thank You
Only in Saudi Arabia can a citizen sponsor a dozen of immigrants, keep their passport and
collect handsome tax. If immigrant in such circumstance happen to be in trouble for trivial
acts, such as traffic violation, they are detained until their sponsor (if alive and around)
bails them out.
Only in Saudi Arabia can a taxi driver be beheaded for perceived drug smuggling when some
passengers dropped drug in his taxi, intentionally or otherwise.
Only in Saudi Arabia are rampant drug and alcohol uses blamed not on the users (the Saudis)
but solely on the suppliers, synonymous to immigrants in this part of the world.
Only in Saudi Arabia are locals bribed to live quietly and not bother the royal families.
Only in Saudi Arabia is a woman stoned to death by the government for a perceived adultery.
If the United Nations can't articulate and enforce basic standards among its member states,
dignified treatment of humans under any circumstance being the chief, what is its purpose
other than serving the interest of some!!!
Well, then such a nation should not be a member of the United Nations until it meets the most
fundamental principles of a global community: humanity and respect for one another.
