Propagandists of the House of Saud

This article by the "editor" of the mouthpiece of Prince Salman and his sons is very cute. Saudi propagandists are not permitted to criticize any Arab government except Sudan and Syria and Hizbullah and Hamas.  The rest are off limit. So this guy (whose articles are more effective than Ambien) criticizes the Sudanese president over the public flogging of a Sudanese woman and then adds:  "The intention here is not to object against the application of Shari`ah." So what is your objection then?  You can't have it both ways.  You are under orders to criticize the Sudanese government but you can't dare criticize this medieval application of Shari`ah?  Spare me and go ask the permission of the prince to drink a glass of water.
