    Right now, I'm still chastizing my soul over having watched those executions.

    Don't beat yourselves over the head. How many people blithely go through every day avoiding thinking about Saudi Arabia and it's daily atrocities? Who wants to think about that? I know people who are absolutely clueless. You are the better people for being aware. And it'll help you avoid being led astray when it comes to larger issues because your heads aren't in the sand.

    I have a hard time watching these things because of the emotional effect. Just like female genital mutilation. It's an African tradition that the Saudis have adopted and have been spreading all over the world. It's horrific. How many people even know about it? How do you stop girls from being cut up and sewn back together until their husband knifes them open again years later? You can't if you don't know about it.
