Saudi-American ties from the 1900's on

Reader comment on item: Hearing on "Should the United States Do More to Help U.S. Citizens Held against Their Will in Saudi Arabia?"

Submitted by Lila B. Reisman (United States), Jun 15, 2002 at 13:03

Mr. Pipes has demonstrated the ties that our Government has had with the Saudis and how this relationship has denied our American soldiers from their worship services and how Jews are denied entry into Saudi because of their religion, and how women, American women at that, are denigrated as seen in the issue over women being Traffic Air Controllers when Saudi Princes were flying. It all proves that the on-going relationships of the Bush family and the Saudis is still strong and does color the true facts of what is now taking place vis a vis the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It is high time to air the connections between our elected officials from the Presidency on down, to the State Department which has always been anti-semitic...to those wheelers and dealers who make fortunes while we, the ground level Americans are sent to war or asked to deprive ourselves of items....or pay too high taxes while Big Business in cahoots with Big Government get huge tax cuts. It is time for Americans to clean house! We have to shine a bright light on what is going on in Governmental offices that prejudice our American well being.

As a country, we have no right to conceal from our people what has been taking place for years and what we must change today if we are to live up to what we extoll as the true meaning of a democracy.

Blessings on Dr. Pipe for his role in clearing away all the morass that covers up the great injustices levied upon us with treacherous abandon.
