Saudi Arabia Passes Fascist New Laws, HPers Shrug

Today, the Huffington Post covered a news article from the Middle East about a US ally over there instituting oppressive new laws. These laws, according to the article, allows this state to "prosecute as a terrorist anyone who demands reform, exposes corruption or otherwise engages in dissent." The United States has sent billions of dollars to this ally over the decades despite their human rights issues and the protests of some at home. 

But because it's apartheid Saudi Arabia, the HP readership didn't really care that much, and the few who did were pro-Israel. 

Sorry Saudis. If only you lived in Israel, then the HP readership might care about you.
