To Really Combat Terror, End Support for Saudi Arabia : Information Clearing House - ICH

To Really Combat Terror, End Support for Saudi Arabia : Information Clearing House - ICH

But don’t
expect any concerted action from the British
government. Kuwait is “an important British ally in
the region”, as the British government

officially puts it
. Tony Blair has become the
must-have accessory of every self-respecting
dictator, ranging from Kazakhstan to Egypt; Kuwait
was Tony Blair Associates’

first client
in a deal worth £27m. Britain has
approved hundreds of arms licences to Kuwait since
2003, recently including military software and
anti-riot shields.



And then,
of course, there is the dictatorship in Saudi
Arabia. Much of the world was rightly repulsed when

Isis beheaded the courageous journalist James Foley
.
Note, then, that Saudi Arabia has

beheaded 22 people since 4 August
. Among the
“crimes” that are punished with beheading are
sorcery and drug trafficking.



Around
2,000 people have been killed since 1985, their
decapitated corpses often left in public squares as
a warning. According to Amnesty International, the
death penalty “is so far removed from any kind of
legal parameters that it is almost hard to believe”,
with the use of torture to extract confessions
commonplace. Shia Muslims are discriminated against
and women are deprived of basic rights, having to
seek permission from a man before they can even
travel or take up paid work.

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
generation an apparently

endless "war on terrorism," it also has led
directly to what is arguably the most

massive assault on our civil liberties since the
Alien and Sedition Acts. Getting all the information
about what happened that day – and why it happened –
is key to understanding the cou…
