I like Counterpunch and regard it as a courageous (and pioneering) media site.  But such pro-Saudi/UAE propaganda by an established UAE propagandist does not belong there:  "Not surprisingly, the highest satisfaction rates come in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. This has historically been the case, and despite the new sets of issues being raised it appears that nothing has diminished the sense in both of these Gulf countries that things are on the “right track”."  (thanks Basim)
