Saudi and Iranian regimes

The Saudi and Iranian regimes are in conflict but they share religious self-righteousness.  That makes it easy for both of them to execute.  Amnesty International has a report which referred to a practice in Iran: whereby underage defendants are executed but only after they reach the age of 18, and Amnesty said that it sounds those who are executed as adults after being convicted as juvenile as juveniles.  I agree with that, but Amnesty did not mention that the Saudi regime does that same.  It is very clear that Western human rights organizations, namely Amnesty and HRW reserve particularly scrutiny to regimes which are not allies of the US.  So beware.  All regimes that resort to religious self-righesuness (Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Israel) should be brought down. That should be a matter of urgency.
