We Need Some New Friends

I recommend that everyone check out this opinion piece from yesterday’s Washington Post. The column has excerpts from school textbooks in Saudi Arabia that are teaching intolerance and hatred for non-Muslims (or, more accurately, non-Wahhabis). For some reason, Washington refuses to accept that Saudi Arabia should not be considered an ally. Although we do appreciate their oil output, every move they make is against the democratic, egalitarian and tolerance values that our society is based on.
