Two years ago, Saudis specifically banned "Jewish people" from their airlines and their country

Reader comment on item: Uniting to Exclude Saudi Arabian Airlines

Submitted by Dr RJP (United States), Aug 22, 2007 at 11:05

That's right. Up until two years ago, the official Saudi Arabian tourist website posted a list of things that could not be brought into the country. In addition to Bibles, crucifixes, and other non-Islamic symbols being brought, the website proclaimed that "Jewish people" were banned.

Although those words were stricken from the website, Jews are still barred from entering into Saudi Arabia, and nearly all other Arab countries as well.

In what has to be madness beyond belief, the Bush Administration is rewarding this despicable Saudi behavior by rewarding them with $20 Billion in advanced weaponry.

It's all about the oil.

Forget about banning just the airline -- let's ban the whole friggin' country, including its oil exports. America should be doing all it can to lessen its dependence on SAUDI oil first to where we no longer need to buy anything from them or give them anything in aid.

We forgot that 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, and that Bin Laden is Saudi, and that Saudi Arabia is Ground Zero for radical Islam and is the leading exporter of this virulent brand of Islamic fundamentalism.

We need to give the collective finger to them unless they change their repressive ways...which will happen when Hell freezes over.
