    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.

    First, you talk about how Saudi Arabia isn’t “civil” enough. And now you’re complaining about them opening up! Not everyone is perfect.

    Clarification for the less informed about the criminal regime of Saudi Arabia
    The disgusting and criminal Saudi regime took advantage to hitch a lift in the confusion of the recent attacks in Ceylon, to justify indecently the recent 37 executions, which were nothing more than murders, insinuating that the executioners were terrorists, but the truth is that they were political opponents of this bloody regime carried out by two murderous criminals and parasites of the Saudi people, father and son whose names are respectively Salman bin Abdulaziz and Mohammed bin Salman. Everything is valid to keep this regime of criminals standing.
    Sooner or later, the West World will must to break up diplomatic relations with these murderers that hould be caught and judged by International Court to crimes against Humanity.

    Mohammad Bone Saw or Mohammad the Beheader is fitting. 5 days ago - Saudi Arabia said Tuesday it had beheaded 37 people convicted of terrorism-related offenses. Among those beheaded is Mujtaba al-Sweikat who was 17 when he was detained at King Fahd International Airport in 2012. Earlier that year, Al-Sweikat allegedly attended a pro-democracy rally in the midst of the Arab Spring, which led to his arrest. He was intending to visit Western Michigan, where he had been accepted as a student, the university confirmed to the Free Press in 2017. Mujtaba was tortured and beheaded.
