    Mohammad bin Salman was designated as Saudi Arabia's new crown prince in June 2017. Since then, he has rapidly consolidated power and led Saudi Arabia towards some progressive reforms, such as granting women the right to drive. He also has plans to privatize certain segments of the economy, with the goal of reducing Saudi Arabia's economic dependency on oil. These changes, along with a suppression of Saudi Arabia's religious Right, could potentially begin to destabilize one of the Middle East's most powerful nations.

Wahabi is Sunni in short .. and they are the one who fight back all bad groubs of muslims such as Rawafid and ISIS and Sufi etc ..

Believe it or not, when still war in Afghanistan, I ever have friend, named Sarael, and yes he is descendants of Israel, but birth, living, and an United States of America resident, as an army he works and help in and fir Afghan, past ago. Because that duty, his wife cheated and leave him, and yes she is Jewish. Now about Japan, please believe me, Japan only calm, beautiful, wonderful everyday only for rich, not for average, and very hard for poor, btw, what you expect for a country run by non syariah system ^_^

THEN they go for the immigration programs ..fleeing to CANADA USA ..etc.!! and working in seven eleven market selling and cleaning bathrooms!!..

And you didn't even bother mention locking up so many of the women who pushed for these reforms, keeping princesses in jail, kidnapping them back to Saudi when they escape... just ask the women reformers like Manal Al Sharif. Ask the girl who escaped to Canada (Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun) She is lucky she made it out and foiled their plans to kidnap her back. Bet you won't be able to ask those who were beat, drugged, and forced back.
