Mohammed H. Siddiq, a native son of Arabia exposes the true nature of Bani Saud.
Saudi Arabia is not a state; it is a clan-based principality. A few men referred to as amirs control the country. No participation or voting is allowed. The ruling amir is a rejectionist: he rejects democracy, freedom of speech, or even thought. He is a dictator answerable to no one. The people of Arabia are barred from any association or membership in organizations that are not loyal to the Saudi ruling amir!
The Bani Saud clan does not allow any opposition; all opposition figures languish in jail; some have died there under torture. Others have been publicly beheaded with the specific aim to terrorize people into submission. Public protests are banned. Most of the amirs have never been inside a middle school, yet they claim the right to rule. The regime has refused to sign a number of international human rights treaties, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Saudi regime is a dictatorship run by greedy men that have plundered and continue to plunder the resources of the land for their personal use. Only their hangers-on are given a few crumbs but the vast majority are denied any political, economic or social rights.
