Yes, and the Islamists in Saudi Arabia would be much more progressive than the government. It always disgusts me that the old Eastern bloc was treated as some sort of massive prison, while Saudi Arabia and the Gulf emirates are fine and dandy just because there's a lot of money sloshing round.


The Islamists are in power, and for at least thirty years they've been using the money they get from us to spread forms of Islam that get up the noses of plenty of folk in the Middle East and Africa.
