Saudi Arabia: how should the West act in the face of human rights contraventions?

"Saudi Arabia is the world’s last absolute monarchy with an extremely arbitrary, reactionary and obscurantist justice system based on the most fundamental codification of Sharia law.

The kingdom’s medieval system of punishment includes chopping off the hands of thieves, flogging homosexuals, and beheading women for alleged adultery. The death penalty can also be carried out by stoning or firing squad followed by crucifixion.

In 2012, some 79 executions took place. One woman was beheaded for witchcraft and sorcery."

Look how the Arab Spring has turned out so far...

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification
seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that
they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
