Saudi officials think the US media portrays the kingdom in a very negative way and doesn't highlight the anti-terror efforts of the theocracy. Well, it is very hard for Americans and the world to have a positive outlook towards Saudi especially after Saudi courts sentences a high school professor to three years in prison and 750 lashes — 50 lashes per week for 15 weeks. The teacher's crime? He was a staunch enemy of terrorists.
Please read the full story of Muhamed al-Harbi at The Religious Police.
Now, why not do something that might help al-Harbi, or at least do something to tell the Saudi authorities, who care so much about their image in the US, that the world is watching? Please give the Saudi embassy a call (or send an email) and tell them that Saudi, the Arab/Muslim world, and the entire world need people like al-Harbi. This guy doesn't deserve to be whipped!
