… So the Saudi government has issued an official condemnation of the purported activities at the infamous Guantanamo Bay detention facility, where it’s said there were U.S. soldiers who desecrated the Koran in an effort to, presumably, torture Muslim prisoners:
“The government of Saudi Arabia is closely following, with indignation, media reports of desecration of the holy Koran at Guantanamo.”
I can only imagine the scene immediately after this stern statement was made.
“Okay, guys, let’s go oppress our women again.”
After all, Saudi Arabia is one of the most oppressive governments in the world– always vying for that top spot with the likes of China and North Korea– so for them to condemn desecration of a book while at the same time completely disregarding the rights of their own women is downright ironic. While I don’t think that excuses the alleged acts, it’s certainly a case of Mr. Pot and Mr. Kettle.
