Dr. Pipes

I also wanted to bring to your attention the case of Pat Condell and the Saudis and for those of you not familiar with him he is a British journalist and he is also an athiest who has no like for Islam and he posts videos on youtube that are very popular and viewed by millions of viewers and one of them in 2007 was "welcome to Saudi Britain" and here is a link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ox2-Wun2dIg

The Saudis did not like it in the least and indeed the video was removed by the cowards at youtube! But now it is back on the air but the folks at youtube do not tell us why it was removed and I supect that they were threatened by the Saudis and this is why it was taken off the air. Now it is back on! Go figure

The moral of the story here is the Saudis have the money to stop what is best about the west and that is freedom of speech
