Speaking for the voiceless

Mohammed H. Siddiq

In “Saudi” Arabia, as soon as a dissident makes himself known, he disappears, never to be seen again.

Expecting political reforms from King Salman is like expecting modesty from Lady Gaga.

According to the understanding of this native son of Arabia, “Saudi” Arabia pretty much falls into two groups: a tiny ruling elite (the ruling amirs), and everyone else who must not dare say, “I disagree.”

O people of Arabia! You cannot sit around wringing your hands and moaning about what a nasty mess the king and the ruling amirs have made for so long; you must rock the boat, reject the status quo and rise up to change it.
